What Is “The King’s Affection” About?
The upcoming K-drama, “The King’s Affection,” is based on a manhwa of the same name. Going back into time, in the royal palace, twins, a boy, and a girl, are born to the queen. While the palace is preparing the boy to take up his father’s place when he grows up, the girl has been abandoned in the palace. But when fate strikes, the real prince dies of an illness. To save the people from panicking, the king’s daughter is dressed as the crown prince and is now being prepared to take the thrown as Prince Lee Hwi.
Learning everything she can, like the future prince, Lee Hwi, is quite talented and skilled at the literary and martial arts. Knowing that she can’t reveal her identity to the world, she maintains a distance from anyone who tries to get close to her. No matter who they are.
The Perspective of Jung Ji Woon
Giving a look at the K-drama, the teaser for “The King’s Affection” shows the crown prince, Lee Hwi, sitting along with the royal teacher, Jung Ji Woon. As teacher Jung Ji Woon offers the crown prince some tea to drink. He sees the shadow of a beautiful woman drinking tea in the mirror that is kept to the side. But looking straight in front of him, he sees the prince as he is. As the crown prince, Lee Hwi stands up to leave to room; his eyes follow the prince. And he sees the shadow of a woman through the door. But running out of the room, he sees no one, but prince Lee Hwi himself, walking down the hallway. As the teacher and student spend time together, Jung Ji Woon starts looking at Lee Hwi’s face. Finding features similar to a feminine face.
And with the passing of time, he finds himself smiling as he looks at Prince Lee Hwi, laughing and enjoying himself with the others. Thinking about who the crown prince is, Jung Woon is lost in his thoughts and questions. And as he is lost in his trance, Prince Lee Hwi snaps him out of the dream. Not being able to take the confusion and his doubts anymore, he finally asks the prince who the high grace is?
The Perspective of Lee Hwi
While in the second teaser released by the channel, takes the perspective of the prince himself. Or, as we should say herself. We see Lee Hwi in the hanbok, dancing softly and enjoying herself through the open hallway. And as she makes another turn in the middle, her attire changes into the one of the crown prince. Making a few more rounds as the prince, her back hits something. Looking back, it was the royal teacher, Ji Jung Woon. And Jung Woon holds her, not knowing who she actually is, as both of their heartbeats thump together.
