Bae Soo Bin, Lee Pil Mo, Baek Hyun Joo, and More Join the Cast of 'The King's Affection'
Broadcast giant KBS finally revealed the veteran and rising actors who will work together in the upcoming historical romance-drama "The King's Affection."
Apart from Park Eun Bin, SF9 Rowoon, Nam Yoon Su, Choi Byung Chan, Bae Yoon Kyung, and DIA Chaeyeon, veteran actors as well as rising stars will participate in the forthcoming drama to decorate the small screen every Monday and Tuesday.
Bae Soo Bin, Lee Pil Mo, Baek Hyun Joo, Go Kyu Pil, Lee Il Hwa, and Son Yeo Eun will take part in strengthening the new drama with their skills in acting.
Bae Soo Bin, a veteran 'sageuk' drama actress for over 11 years, will take on the role of Jeong Seok Jo, the father of Jeong Ji Woon (Rowoon). He is a realist, and he works for the forces that thoroughly agree with him.
Next, Lee Pil Mo will portray Hye Jong, crown prince Lee Hwi's (Park Eun Bi) father. He is a strong-willed man with revolutionary political strategies who believes in his own political beliefs.
The two fathers are both firm for what they believe in, who only want what's best for their children, who express their affection with tough love. To Lee Hwi and Ji Woon, fathers are difficult figures that always feel uncomfortable and distant.
On the other hand, Baek Hyun Joo and Go Kyu Pil will play the roles of Kim Sang Gung and Hong Nae Kwan respectively, who have watched the crown prince grow up in front of their eyes. Both of them are loyal servants and a friend to Lee Hwi.
Lee Il Hwa, who returns with a new historical drama after seven years, will play the role of "The Great Queen" of the royal family. She is powerful yet benevolent and warm.
