The upcoming K-drama The King 2 Hearts (formerly known simply as The King) finally released pictures of its first script reading. Starring Lee Seung Gi as a South Korean Prince turned King who falls in love with a North Korean agent played by Ha Ji Won in a fictional Korea setting. Second leads will be played Lee Yoon Ji and Jo Jung Suk, plus the usual array of established character actors in the industry. Since Lee Soon Jae is the cast, I hope he plays the Papa King, just cuz he’s always perfect as the head of the family or head of state. I have reservations about this pairing, but it’s not anything substantive enough to deter from me from checking out this drama. The superficial similarities to Spy Myung Wol actually make me more wary. I’m excited Ha Ji Won has longer locks again, and Lee Seung Gi is looking adorable as always. King 2Hearts will be directed and written by the PD-writing tandem who did Beethoven’s Virus.
