Park Eun Bin And SF9’s Rowoon Confirmed To Star In Upcoming Historical Drama
On March 19, it was confirmed that the two actors had been cast in the upcoming KBS drama “The King’s Affection.” Based on a manhwa (Korean comic), “The King’s Affection” is a historical drama about twins born in the palace. Although one of them is abandoned for being female, she later pretends to be a man and becomes the crown prince when her brother dies.
Park Eun Bin has been cast in the role of the crown prince named Lee Hwi. Lee Hwi is the perfect crown prince, skilled at the literary and martial arts and gifted with an elegant beauty. But because of her secret, Lee Hwi never reveals her feelings to the world and keeps a distance between anyone who tries to get close, including the palace ladies.
Rowoon has been cast in the role of Jung Ji Woon, Lee Hwi’s teacher. He is a teacher from the Crown Prince sikangwon, a government office for the sole purpose of educating crown princes. He is described as a handsome man who is bold, persevering, and tenacious, but also tends to take life as it comes and lives free from worldly concerns as an optimist who enjoys life. As the son of a government official in the Saheonbu (an investigative government office), his future seemed clearly set out for him. However, there was a reason that he chose to go his own path and leave the easy road behind.
The production staff of “The King’s Affection” stated, “Park Eun Bin and Rowoon, who look like they’ve stepped out of the pages of a comic book, have confirmed their casting in ‘The King’s Affection.’ Park Eun Bin will show a new side of herself as a female crown prince, while Rowoon plays the charming male lead who will throw her emotions into chaos. Please look forward to the unforgettable romance between their characters.”
“The King’s Affection” is being directed by Song Hyun Wook (“Beauty Inside,” “Another Oh Hae Young“) and written by Han Hee Jung (“Clean with Passion for Now“). Filming will begin soon and the drama is expected to premiere sometime in the second half of 2021.
