I’m starting to get nervous/excited for the upcoming KBS sageuk The King’s Affection, the more promos I see the more I find the set up totally swoony yet the more I’m super wary of idol-actor Ro Woon tackling his first headlining sageuk role. I think he’s shown plenty of potential and delivered enough in each of the dramas I’ve seen but this one is another level needed. The latest posters, stills, and preview continue to be just so pretty and precious, Park Eun Bin is clearly pulling out all the stops but she’s still a girl pretending to be a boy (to our eyes) but in the sageuk world I can buy that she pulls it off with her haughty coldness. Too bad she’s got a back story with swoony tutor and probably doesn’t mind having a guy as smexy as Ro Woon at her beck and call, other than getting outed for pretending to be a boy/king bit. Eh, what’s a little risk in the name of true love, right?
