SF9’s Rowoon And Park Eun Bin Grow Closer Yet Again In “The King’s Affection”
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.
Previously, Lee Hwi and Jung Ji Woon shared their fateful first kiss. The aftermath is playing out very different for the two, as Jung Ji Woon is busy being in denial while Lee Hwi remembers the moment fondly. Jung Ji Woon takes to apologizing fervently to Lee Hwi, tearfully saying, “Please have me dead, Your Majesty.” He even reaches out to acquaintances and asks them for advice, pretending to ask “for a friend.” On the other hand, Lee Hwi is more calm in her response. Plus, she has more urgent matters to attend to related to ruling a country.
With their first kiss still fresh on their minds, the two face yet another intimate moment. The released stills show the duo just before their lips are brought together again, drawing curiosity for what brought to this situation.
The production team commented, “The couple’s beautiful and heart-fluttering romance will continue tonight (November 8). A point to look out for is how Lee Hwi effortlessly continues life as normal after their first kiss while Jung Ji Woon struggles to keep his emotions in line. Please enjoy the trajectory of the couple as Lee Hwi calmly takes the lead.”
Episode 9 of “The King’s Affection” will air on November 8 at 9:30 p.m. KST.
