KBS’ The King’s Affection began the overture to a sad romance.
Lee Hwi (played by Park Eun Bin) and Jung Ji Woon (Rowoon) had a fateful reunion in the previous episode. The crown prince ran into Ji Woon by accident at a military training camp named Kangmujang. Puzzled by the unexpected encounter, the prince hesitantly warns him, saying, “Stay away from my life or else you’ll face the consequence,” as she once again recalls the fact that Ji Woon’s father is the one who killed her twin brother.
However, a trick of nature landed on them as Ji Woon gets assigned to the royal palace to teach the crown prince.
Meanwhile, the eventful story of the crown prince caught the viewer’s attention as she faced with the threat of death. For instance, she came across an assassin at the military camp and had to deal with a large group of political entities that plans to challenges her throne.
In addition, a member of the royal family, Lee Hyun (Nam Yoon Su), appeared for the first time to save Lee Hwi from a murder attack and made viewers wonder about what will happen between them in the coming episodes.
According to Nielsen Korea, the third episode of The King’s Affection recorded average nationwide viewership ratings of 6.5 percent, seeing a slight dip compared to the previous episode.
