Bae's management agency BOF said the actor will take on the role of Jun-sang in the animated series jointly being produced with Japan.
The animation 'Winter Sonata,' which will go into joint production in late March by Keyeast Inc. and Japan's Total Promotion Company, will be made into both small screen and large screen versions.
The preview of the animated series as well as a video message from Bae will be screened during a press conference in Tokyo on March 28.
The TV drama 'Winter Sonata,' which aired in 2002 on KBS, became a phenomenal hit in both Korea and Japan. The series was aired in Japan on NHK in 2004. The huge success of the drama series made Bae one of Asia's biggest stars.
