Kim Jae Won reveals that he’s been doing his homework, analyzing and interpreting historical records to try and figure out who the historical Injo might have been like, “It’s iffy to portray [Injo] as cool and charismatic just because he is a king. In the historical records, Injo is not exactly a character that is overflowing with charisma. I am contemplating a lot on this at the moment.”
