The new Saturday-Sunday drama “Captivating the King” continues the box office success of tvN’s fiction historical dramas.
tvN’s new Saturday-Sunday drama “Captivating the King” (directed by Jo Nam-guk/written by Kim Seon-deok/planned by Studio Dragon/produced by C-JeS), which will be aired for the first time tomorrow (21st), is about King Yi-in, who holds a high position but has a lowly heart, and Sejak (Sejak) to bring him down.
A story about the cruel fate of a woman who became a spy. It is a well-made historical drama on tvN with director Jo Nam-guk, who was recognized for his solid directing skills in ‘Model Detective’ and ‘The Man Who Became King’, based on the story of ‘Sejak’, a spy who hides his identity and secretly finds out secrets or situations and provides information.
It is an ambitious work that opens the door to tvN’s Saturday-Sunday drama in 2024, co-created by writer Kim Seon-deok, who opened the door to Shinhwa.
Among these, ‘Three Works, The Bewitched’ is raising expectations as Gapjinnyeon’s most anticipated drama that will continue its unbeatable reputation as a tvN fiction historical drama.
‘The Man Who Became King’ writer Kim Seon-deok’s solid screenplay, director Jo Nam-guk’s directing ability, and the actors’ flawless acting skills combine perfectly to herald the birth of a new masterpiece.
Previously, “Under The Queen’s Umbrella”, starring Kim Hye-soo, which depicts the turbulent struggles of the royal family during the middle of the war as they enter the fierce royal education war for troublemaker princes, attracted attention by recording the highest viewership rating of 16.9% (Nielsen nationwide standard) at the time of airing.
In particular, Kim Hye-soo played the role of Im Hwa-ryeong, the head of the internal affairs department, and received attention for her passionate performance that encompassed not only the dignity of a middle-aged woman, but also the aspects of a real-life mother who enjoyed variety every day thanks to her accidental princes.
Accordingly, Jo Jung-seok and Shin Se-kyung will take over the baton, raising expectations by predicting that they will lead the melodrama narrative as well as the crazy chemistry between the deluded king and Sejak, who is aiming for his heart.
Jo Jong-suk announces his unprecedented return to the small screen with his acting skills reaching the level of a maestro, from the cheerful Grand Prince Jinhan to the 270-degree change in storm charisma of King Lee In.
At the same time, expectations are growing that Shin Se-kyung will exude infinite charm that cannot be escaped from Kang Mong-woo, a baduk player with Jo Jung-seok’s fortune-telling bet, to Kang Hee-soo, a three-character character whom he will later become irresistibly fascinated by.
The production team of tvN’s “Captivating the King” said, “‘Sejak’ will show the essence of a fictional historical drama,” adding, “The story created based on imagination and inspired by some historical events will plunge viewers into a swamp of fascination that they cannot escape. “I plan to make you miss it, so please look forward to it,” he said.
Meanwhile, tvN’s new Saturday-Sunday drama “Captivating the King” starring Jo Jung-seok and Shin Se-kyung will premiere at 9:20 PM on Sunday, January 21, and will be specially scheduled for the first and second consecutive episodes.
