Stills from the set of King 2 Hearts

Here’s a look at shots from the set of MBC’s King 2 Hearts, gearing up for its premiere in just about two weeks. They feature leads Lee Seung-gi and Ha Ji-won meeting for the first time in a heated North-South confrontation, due to a clash in personalities. Or yunno, because it’s North and South Korea. Though clearly, the countries are on better terms in this fictional universe, if the big political move is to have a North Korean officer marry a South Korean king-to-be. Don’t they know that romance just complicates politics?

Apparently in this scene the very straight-laced Kim Hang-ah (Ha Ji-won) gets quickly fed up with petulant prince Lee Jae-ha (Lee Seung-gi) who will be, by all accounts, a royal ass. Aren’t they all? Well, at least I know he did a good job with that same type of character in Brilliant Legacy. I hated his character quite effectively, which made the eventual arc well-earned. The ticket’s in the writing though, ’cause there’s a fine line between a Darcy and a bastard. I just hope Ha Ji-won’s character is written with some actual spunk, because if she’s yet another supposedly badass heroine who is NOT BADASS, I will be grumpy. And you know what happens when I’m grumpy.

King 2 Hearts premieres Wednesday March 14, following The Moon That Embraces the Sun on MBC.

They look good in those uniforms, I can't wait! Ha Ji-won seems really tired though.

I wish it didn't air at the same time as Rooftop Prince, I want both of these shows to get good ratings.

LOL ! Can someone picture Ha Ji Won as a princess in distress screaming for help ? Just the idea is perfectly ridiculous to me (even if i don't question her acting abilities). In fact, I would love both of them to be asses, just to see how far the situation can go.
Those fantasy purple uniforms are nice, and the all scene smells World Crisis, What Do We Do ?.
Oh, and i recognize our golden voice of What's up ? in the 3rd pic. Hello you.

Good catch, M! It's good to see another alumni from WU! in yet another drama - but will he lighten things up over on the North side and warble a few tunes?

Also had to laugh at GF's "there’s a fine line between a Darcy and a bastard."
More melodic would be "there's a fine line between a Darcy and a dick."

I'm still having trouble with this pairing of Seung gi and Ha Ji won - she looks older (and aren't they 5/6 years apart anyway?).

Mystisith, you are awesome. It's our shrinking violet indeed! Will he get to sing here? I wish the girl could be just a girl from the same age bracket for once. So so tired of these noona romances. Can we have dramas with an older man-younger girl theme pls pls? Like Barbara Cartland's romances? The Chaebol and the Waif. That'd be so romantic.

The only drama i'm watching these days with younger girl / older man is Please Take care of Us Captain. And the romance part is not convincing for me. Maybe Twelve Men in a Year or Equator Man will deliver in that domain.

I like Lee Seung Gi with the shorter hair, he's starting to look like he might be over 20 at last!

Ha Ji Won is lovely but as a former military person, I take exception to her long hair being down while in uniform - silly thing I know but distracting.

Not too distracting though because I picked out Byeon Gun really fast and got all excited, what with the What's Up love and all...I see others recognized him too. Really looking forward to seeing him in another role, even if he doesn't sing.

"Don’t they know that romance just complicates politics? "

Because there's a Hallyu Crackdown Squad, no one got to watch Myungwol the Spy to understand that.

And why is an officer given the command to marry a prince? What exactly is her social status? Daughter of general? Either way, be happy dude. Your bride is Ha Ji-Won!

I may tune into this just because Jo Jeong Suk is in it :) And I like Seung Gi and Ha Ji Won's acting from the roles I've seen them in so far. Hope this is a good one, even if the title is kinda weird.

Ha Ji Won looks so beautiful in a military uniform and she doesn't age, does she? She still looks so young and match well with Lee Seung Gi. And I can't wait for her character to give lessons to a lazy playboy Prince who will end up marrying her.

All the stills are looking great, but can we at least get a peek of Lee Yoon Ji too? ^_^ Hahaha "golden voice" from What's Up, he's amazing actor and I hope to see more of him in King 2Hearts too even though he doesn't sing.

I honestly can't wait for King 2Hearts as I love the main casts as well as the supporting casts (Yoon Yeo Jung, Lee Soon Jae, Yoon Je Moon, etc) too.

LOL. call me slow but I just realised that the line up of korean monarchy dramas this year have noona-dongssaeng lead characters.

The moon that embraces the sun = Han Ga In ('82) and Kim Soo Hyun ('88)

Rooftop Prince = Han Ji Min ('82) and Park Yoochun ('86)

King 2 Hearts = Ha Jin Won ('78) and Lee Seung Gi ('87)

Hm why did they make him the same age as Ha Ji Won's character? Even though she looks young but she does still look older than baby-faced LSGi. LSGi used to work with noonas in his MVs and MGIAG, and HJW worked with younger actors before. So I hope they can pull off the chemistry.

Saw the news that the title has been changed (again) to The King 2 Hearts. Honestly, I still don't get why they changed it in the first place. The King sounds much better.

Oh, he's supposed to be her age? But she looks so much older! Is this a new trend thing? Passing older women actresses off as young girls? Like HGI in Moon?

So if older women are cast as young innocents, can a guy be cast as a girl too? You know, flexibility and all that. JGS would be amazing.

I am a really big female fan of ha ji won, she's gorgeous and her acting is just amazing, i've watched all her dramas and movies she's my favorite korean actress( with sung yuri). And Lee seung gi is handsome not very good actor but he's so sweet and delicious that i forget all his mistakes, i've loved all his dramas. I can't see them together but i just can't wait for drama. i am not fan of the title, a little bit childich

What we always watch the same old format and with the same old story line but with different era that it become so boring.

But recently the cables are showing the second lead actors has interesting characters, like now with
feast of gods, syndrome and previously color of woman.

Second lead actors are more interesting with their characters then the first lead actor.

Bravo ! to second lead actors, work harder and you will succeed too!.

Now that you've mentioned Memories of Bali, how I still wish it was Jo In Sung she got to partner up (again) for King2Hearts. I was deleting some bookmarks on my computer when i watched again their mise en scene commercial in 2005.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y76cOmsSUfs it reminded me how much chemistry they have together.. So much sexiness between them that my computer's about to explode! If only JIS agreed doing the drama instead of going for that superhero film that didn't really happen..

Anyway, I'll still be anticipating this drama since HJW rocks anything she's in.

HJW, with her action training and athleticism, is going to be the North Korean spy that Han Ye Seul was not.

Sorry to HYS fans, but one HUGE reason Spy Myung Wol was so unbelievable was because HYS looked like she might crumple if she lifted a weight.

I am _SO_ looking forward to the king's jaw hitting the floor when she breaks out the action moves. I hope LSG will look ridiculously turned on by it. AND unlike other oblivious heroines, I want her to be completely aware of it and to knock him upside the head everytime he gets caught staring. Yep.
