Kim Jung Hyun Faces Bae Jong Ok With Fierce Charisma In “Mr. Queen”
tvN’s “Mr. Queen” revealed new stills ahead of tonight’s episode!
“Mr. Queen” is a historical fusion drama about a man from modern times whose soul is trapped in the body of a queen from the Joseon dynasty. Shin Hye Sun stars as Kim So Yong, the Joseon queen with the soul of Blue House chef Jang Bong Hwan trapped inside her. Kim Jung Hyun plays her husband King Cheoljong, who is a weak and ineffective king on the outside but is stronger and sharper than he appears.
King Cheoljong experienced a devastating taste of betrayal in the previous episode. He had big plans to restore the throne and destroy corruption in the government. He wanted to carry them out during the banquet, but they were hampered by those who didn’t want any changes. Kim Jwa Geun (Kim Tae Woo) successfully beat King Cheoljong at his own game, and King Cheoljong suffered from a dangerous explosion that almost took his life.
Now, King Cheoljong is back, and he has changed for good. The newly released stills give a preview of how he will no longer remain a puppet king. His gaze is fiery with determination, and he strides towards the throne with flaming charisma. King Cheoljong and Queen Sunwon (Bae Jong Ok) will have a fierce confrontation, and this time, he won’t be backing down as her obedient son. Kim Jwa Geun’s head is lowered, and the other government officials look stunned and confused by the king’s sudden transformation.
The drama’s production crew said, “King Cheoljong will give a pleasant catharsis by finding his place in the palace. The truth about the explosion that happened at the banquet as well as an unpredictable twist will be revealed. Please look forward to the ‘No touch’ couple’s romance, which will deepen in the midst of a crisis, as well as their fiery teamwork.”
Episode 13 of “Mr. Queen” will air on January 23 at 9 p.m. KST.
