He’s a king that tries to right the wrong and is loyal to his one love. I tried not to smile too often during the phototime because it makes me look a lot younger than my role. There have been many kings before me, but please trust me when I say that I will show a different image than them.”

Jung Il Woo, who will play the role of Kim Soo Hyun’s Stepbrother will also be getting involved in a love triangle with Han Ga In and Kim Soo Hyun’s characters. When asked about his character he stated, “He’s a natural character that has a lot of worries on the side. Even though he’s laughing, you know that he’s sad inside, so he’s one that requires a lot of emotional restraint and balance.”

Han Ga In, who will be making her come back as Kim Soo Hyun’s Love interest in the drama was asked what her husband thought of the two young actors. She replied, “He hasn’t really said anything because we don’t talk about the drama that often. I’m sure he’d be happy, right? Or maybe envious?”

The drama starts airing on the 4th of January.
