Netflix has confirmed 11 October 2021 as the worldwide release date for new romance series The King’s Affection, a poignant palace romance starring Park Eun-bin and Rowoon.
The series tells the story of how the abandoned female twin of a crown prince ends up disguising herself as her brother who had passed away. The tale originates from a comic book series that was inspired by imaginations about a woman rising to the throne and having to disappear from history.
Hiding her true identity and carrying a burdensome secret under the weight of the large ceremonial robes, crown prince Yi Hwi’s world changes when she meets Jung Ji-un through her royal lectures.
While hiding that she is a woman, she meets a pure man in the palace setting which can be a cut-throat yet romantic place. As their love and affection for each other blooms and their feelings deepen, they face a destiny that they cannot avoid.
The King’s Affection is directed by Song Hyunwook, who directed the dramas Beauty Inside and Another Miss Oh and written by Han Hee Jung who wrote Clean with Passion for Now. The first episode will premiere on 11 October at 10:30PM MYT on Netflix.
