First Impressions: The King Loves Has Solid Start With Plenty Of Conflict, Romance, And Aesthetics

This week, MBC aired its new traditional drama, The King Loves, based on Kim Yi Ryungs novel by the same name. The drama stars Im Siwan, making his return to dramas after three years and his first sageuk in five years; YoonA, starring in her first sageuk ever; and Hong Jong Hyun, taking a new role after playing a villainous prince in Scarlet Heart: Goryeo.

The main cast has already made a lot of splash in the media with their various returns, and its unfortunate that Im Siwan may not get to see the results of his work now that hes serving his mandatory military service. On the bright side, the drama promises plenty of conflict in love and palace politics, like any good sageuk should.
