Kim Ro-woon up for KBS romance sageuk with Park Eun-bin
Kim Ro-woon, Park Eun-bin
A new sageuk is being planned on KBS called Affection and an offer has been made to Kim Ro-woon (Extraordinary You). If he accepts, he will be joining Park Eun-bin (Do You Like Brahms) in a leading role. Kim is currently starring in JTBC’s Sunbae, Don’t Put on That Lipstick, which premieres today, but that obviously isn’t slowing him down. His agency confirmed that he received the offer and that it’s among one of several projects that he’s reviewing.
The story for KBS’s Affection is based on a popular manga by the same title (written and illustrated by Lee So-young) and tells the tale of a secret king that was hidden from Joseon history.
In a gender bending role, Park Eun-bin takes on the central character of Lee Hwi, the Crown Prince (and soon to be King) of Joseon. For reasons not yet known, she lives disguised as a man and is described as being beautiful but mysterious. She keeps her emotions well-guarded behind a poker face, but internally, she’s constantly stressed from continuing to live a lie. Each day is a struggle between her public self and her true self and identity.
If Kim Ro-woon accepts, he will be playing Jung Ji-woon; he is Park Eun-bin’s teacher and first love. He has a happy personality, always wanting to have a good time, and has a high regard for aesthetics and beauty.
Written by Han Hee-jung (Clean With Passion for Now) and directed by PD Song Hyun-wook (Another Oh Hae-young, Beauty Inside), KBS sageuk Affection is currently in the planning stages and will air sometime next year.
