There are also three handsome up-and-coming actors set to make your heart flutter in this one-of-a-kind historical drama:
Rowoon plays Ji-Un, the royal tutor who becomes intertwined in a secret romance with Prince Hwi.
He’s known as a talented performer from K-pop group SF9, but he has also established himself as a promising leading man after playing Haru on Netflix’s romantic series “Extraordinary You.”
In a press conference on Friday, “The King’s Affection” director Song Hyun Wook said he was very impressed by his performance, as well as his confidence and commitment to his role.
Nam Yoon Su

This striking actor and model previously appeared on Netflix’s hit drama “Extracurricular.”
Apart from his handsome smile, director Song said he was impressed by Yoon Su’s previous work and had him in mind “from the beginning.”
Choi Byung Chan
Choi Byung Chan plays Ga-on, Prince Hwi’s trusted bodyguard who is always by his side.
The young actor and singer debuted as a member of the K-pop group Victon.
According to director Song, he is quite the mysterious character as he “speaks with his eyes” and does not show how he really feels.
“The King’s Affection,” written by Han Hee Jung, premieres this Monday, Oct. 11, at 10:30 p.m. Philippine time on Netflix. – RC, GMA News
