Weve reached the end of historical drama The King Loves, and its been quite a ride. The drama started out lighthearted and fun, and while it maintained notes of this until the very end, it also left me with a whole lot of bitter feelings ranging from dissatisfied to completely devastated. But along with this frustration, there was also a lot to love about The King Loves, so lets review.
The backbone of the drama is the friendship between Crown Prince Won (Im Siwan) and Wang Rin (Hong Jong Hyun); this relationship is undoubtedly the best part of The King Loves. Won and Rin are often in bromance mode, playing off each other in delightfully adorable ways. But their friendship is also uniquely intense: Rin is the only person in the world that Won can rely on, and he treats the crown prince with unwavering loyalty and devotion.
