Im Shi Wan (Misaeng) and Yoona (The K2) have been confirmed to be starring in the new sageuk The King Loves. The King Loves is about an ambitious and conflicted crown prince in the Goryeo era who is looking to conquer. He falls in love with the daughter of the richest man in the nation and ends up in a tragic love triangle with her and his close friend.
So we have Im Shi Wan as the crown prince and Yoona as the woman who tears apart a friendship. The other man has not been cast yet.
I love the setting of the Goryeo era for the drama. A tragic love story with lots of conflict is right up my alley too, so I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on this one.
The King’s Love will be completely pre-produced and is looking to air in 2017.
