Korean idols Yoona of Girls Generation and Siwan of ZE:A, together with Korean model-actor Hong Jong Hyun, make love reign on afternoon television beginning Monday (Jan 22) as newest Asianovela “The King is in Love” premieres on ABS-CBN.
Set in Goryeo dynasty, the show follows the story of crown prince Won (Siwan), his best friend Wang Rin (Jong Hyun), and the love of his life, So-Hwa (Yoona).
Prince Won and Wang Rin have been friends since they were young. As the heir to the throne, Won is forbidden from having friends, yet Wang Rin remains by his side and even shows him what life is like outside the big walls of his palace.
The two grow up together and have each other’s backs no matter what, until the captivating So-Hwa enters the picture.
Won falls in love with So-Hwa so much to the point that he loves her more than himself, while Wang Rin loves the young lady in secret so as not to hurt his best friend’s feelings.
How will So Hwa get in the way of Won and Wang Rin’s friendship? Who will win her heart?
The show’s theme song titled “Tunay na Pag-ibig” was sung by Sam Milby.
