THE KING IN LOVE (K-drama 2017)


Drama series is set during the Kingdom of Goryeo.

Won, the crown prince of Goryeo, has a pretty appearance, but he also a lust for conquest. He is best friends with Rin who is a son of a royal family and his bodyguard. When beautiful San, the daughter of the richest man, appears in front of the two young men, the three become good friends, but things change after Won and Rin both fall in love with San.

When I remember this drama, I will think of as bittersweet.  A kind of drama suffered from political conflicts, a love triangle, and friendship that has been defied all the odds.

The plot is nothing extraordinary to compare, but the execution was great. The actor’s portrayals are convincible at any rate. The cinematography and the ost are also beautiful. Though they have all these positive points, I didn’t feel any emotional connections and I was wondering how I finished this drama without whining.

Nonetheless, if you want a  period drama with the right amount of conflict, not so scary villains, plain romance, anticipated plot, beautiful scenery, and faces, then the story of king’s in love will suit your taste.

Verdict: 8/10
