Rowoon, Park Eun Bin, Nam Yoon Su, And Bae Yoon Kyung Have A Fateful Encounter In “The King’s Affection”
Tension is rising high in “The King’s Affection” as relationships get further entangled!
Based on the manhwa (Korean comic) of the same name, “The King’s Affection” tells the story of 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. Park Eun Bin stars as Lee Hwi, the crown prince with a shocking secret, while SF9’s Rowoon stars as Jung Ji Woon, who is Lee Hwi’s teacher.
The latest stills released by KBS capture a fragile encounter involving Lee Hwi and Jung Ji Woon, along with Lee Hyun (Nam Yoon Su) and Shin So Eun (Bae Yoon Kyung).
Lee Hwi and Jung Ji Woon are growing more confused by the day because of their attraction for one another, and beside them are Lee Hyun and Shin So Eun, who are also falling helplessly into love with the other two.
Lee Hyun has long been a trustworthy source of support for Lee Hwi. He is kind-hearted and considerate to Lee Hwi. Most importantly, he has kept her most sacred secret. But as time goes on, Lee Hyun realizes that his feelings for Lee Hwi are much more romantic in nature.
Shin So Eun’s heart for Jung Ji Woon is just as earnest, as reuniting with him has been her top interest. She even went as far as begging on her knees to her father to help keep Jung Ji Woon from being let go from his position. As self-assured and haughty as she is, it is no surprise that she is willing to go to great lengths for her love.
The stills portray the growing unease among the four vital characters as they each come to realize their feelings for one another. In this critical moment, Lee Hwi and Lee Hyun run into Jung Ji Woon and Shin So Eun in an alley. The unexpected encounter places the four in a tense situation with a hint of jealousy in the air. The dynamic among the four will continue to change as Lee Hwi and Jung Ji Woon act on their impulses.
The production team commented, “The love growing among Lee Hwi and Jung Ji Woon, as well as Lee Hyun and Shin So Eun, will take form as inevitable fate as the story continues. This encounter with all four is an opening checkpoint of their story. Please look forward to the interesting run of events coming up in this episode.”
Episode 7 will air November 1 at 9:30 p.m. KST.
