Yoona will follow up The K2 with a historical co-starring Siwan
Love puts friendship to test in the upcoming melodrama tentatively titled “The King is in Love”. Reportedly, ZE:A member, Siwan, and Girls’ Generation member, Yoona, will be leading the fusion series set during the Goryeo dynasty. San (played by Yoona) is characterized as a charming femme-fatale-type of a woman who is caught in a love triangle between two longtime friends, Won and Rin. Won (played by Siwan) is characterized as a clever and determined crown prince with a yearning for conquest. Currently, the casting of Rin is still unconfirmed.
“The King is in Love” marks Siwan’s return to the small screen with his last drama being Misaeng (2014). He’s cultivated quite the acting career for himself since filming cameos in 2010 then his breakout supporting role in the Joseon-era, The Moon that Embraces the Sun (2012).
The period drama is scheduled to begin filming in November and air in early 2017, with 100 percent pre-production.
