A Fan of Gender-switching Stories? Be Sure to Catch 'The Kings Affection' on Netflix This Oct 11
If you're running out of shows to watch this season, consider following the much-awaited story of Netflix's The King's Affection.
The upcoming Korean series tells the story of an abandoned female twin who ends up disguising herself as her crown prince brother. The tale originates from the highly-acclaimed comic book series inspired by a woman who rose to the throne and disappeared from Korea's history.
K-drama fans' hearts will surely flutter as disguised crown prince Yi Hwi (Park Eun-bin) and her teacher Jung Ji-un meet and get involved with each other's lives.
Hiding her true identity and carrying a burdensome secret under the weight of the large ceremonial robes, crown prince Yi Hwi’s world changes when she meets Jung Ji-un through her royal lectures. While hiding that she is a woman, she meets a man in the palace which can be a cutthroat yet romantic place. As their love and affection for each other blooms and their feelings deepen, they face a destiny that they cannot avoid.
The producers of The King’s Affection shared, “On set, Park Eun-bin and Rowoon brought the charming atmosphere and feelings of wistful yearning to live. We hope that avid viewers show a lot of interest and look forward to the imaginations of what it would have been like to have a king disappear into the mists of history and the inescapable fate of the two people which starts on October 11th.”
The King’s Affection is directed by Song Hyunwook who directed the dramas Beauty Inside and Another Miss Oh, and written by Han Hee Jung who wrote Clean with Passion for Now. The first episode will premiere on October 11th at 10:30pm Philippine time, on Netflix.
