Park Eun Bin Explains Why She “Cast Everything Aside” To Star In Upcoming Historical Drama With SF9’s Rowoon
In a recent interview and pictorial for Harper’s Bazaar magazine, Park Eun Bin dished on her upcoming drama “The King’s Affection”!
Based on the manhwa (Korean comic) of the same name, “The King’s Affection” is a KBS drama about a pair of royal twins, one male and one female. Although the sister is initially abandoned for being female, she later disguises herself as a man to become the crown prince when her brother dies.
After posing for Harper’s Bazaar in a number of simple, modern fits, Park Eun Bin sat down to talk about why she knew she had to star in “The King’s Affection” no matter what.
“My last historical drama was ‘Secret Door‘ in 2014,” she began. “I was just thinking that I wanted to try doing a historical drama again for the first time in a long while when I came across ‘The King’s Affection.'”
“‘The story of a woman in the Joseon era living as a crown prince and becoming king’—this one line summing up the premise was so appealing,” continued Park Eun Bin. “Though there will probably be opportunities for me to act in other historical dramas in the future, I don’t think there’ll be another opportunity for me to play a king. So I cast everything aside to do ‘The King’s Affection.'”
“The King’s Affection” will premiere on October 11 at 9:30 p.m. KST. In the meantime, check out a teaser for the drama here!
