Park Eun Bin And SF9’s Rowoon’s New Historical Drama Reveals Premiere Date And Teaser Poster
KBS drama “The King’s Affection” has announced its premiere date!
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 will play the crown prince 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 will take 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.
On September 6, KBS unveiled the teaser poster for the drama and announced that it would premiere on October 11.
The newly released poster features Lee Hwi and Jung Ji Woon. They are facing each other, and although only their silhouettes can be seen, they captivate fans with their heart-fluttering eye contact and apparent height difference. As their feelings for each other deepen, the inevitable shadow of fate will also grow darker.
The production team shared, “Even on the actual set, the beautiful atmosphere surrounding Park Eun Bin and Rowoon brought out the sentimental feelings of love. What would it have been like if there was a king who disappeared into the background of history? Please give a lot of attention [to the drama] and look forward to October 11 when their inevitably intertwined fate will begin in that kind of imaginary [situation].”
“The King’s Affection” will premiere on October 11 at 9:30 p.m. KST.
