Kim Jung Hyun Talks About His Multifaceted Character And Acting In Historical Fusion Drama

tvN’s new Saturday-Sunday drama “Mr. Queen” revealed new glimpses of Kim Jung Hyun’s character!

“Mr. Queen” is a historical fusion drama about a man from modern times whose soul gets trapped in the body of a queen from the Joseon dynasty. Shin Hye Sun takes the role of Kim So Yong, the queen with the soul of Jang Bong Hwan trapped inside her. Kim Jung Hyun plays King Cheoljong, who seems like a weak and ineffective king but has a sharp and strong-willed side that he keeps hidden.

The newly released photos show King Cheoljong reading among the cherry blossoms with perfect posture. Then for an unknown reason, he is up and ready to take on a fight. However, his awkward stance doesn’t make him seem like a big threat.

But at night, his playful side is nowhere to be seen. Instead, he has a stone-cold expression and creates a sense of tension. There is much to be uncovered about his true self and why he continues to keep this act up.

Regarding the series, Kim Jung Hyun commented, “It was interesting idea for a modern day man to find himself in the body of a Joseon dynasty queen.” On his character, he said, “King Cheoljong is someone who is both naive and cool-headed.”

The actor went on to say, “I’m paying special attention to the scenes where I interact with the queen, since her character is one that is unpredictable. I’m trying to focus on how I respond to her unexpected actions.” He shared that he thinks it will be fun for viewers to discover all the different sides to the king, asking them to find out about his unexpected charming qualities through the broadcast.

“Mr. Queen” will premiere December 12 at 9 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki.
