Hong Jong Hyun (Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Goryeo) has been offered a role in the new sageuk The King Loves starring Im Shi Wan (Misaeng) and Yoona (The K2). The King Loves is about an ambitious and conflicted crown prince (Im Shi Wan) in the Goryeo era who is looking to conquer. He falls in love with the daughter (Yoona) of the richest man in the nation and ends up in a tragic love triangle with her and his close friend.
Hong Jong Hyun is up for the role of the prince’s friend, making him the third member of our love triangle. I’m still extremely interested in this tragic love story set in the Goryeo era. It sounds like it’s going to be full of angsty goodness, and that makes me excited.
The King Loves is looking to air sometime in 2017.
