On May 14, TV Chosun ran a livestream for the press conference “King Maker: The Change of Destiny”. Actors were present Park Shi Hoo, Go Sung Hee, Jun Kwang Ryul, Sung Hyuk, Kim Seung Soo, Eru and producer Yoon Sang Ho.
This historical drama is about the struggle for the throne between rulers with psychic abilities. The PD introduced “King Maker: The Change of Destiny” as “both a political drama about people with greed and a melodrama with love”. In the end, it’s a human drama that touches the heart. “
The drama contains both factual and fictional characters. Yoon Sang Ho said: “The only characters that really exist in history are Lee Ha Sun (played by Eru) and the regent Heungseon Daewongun (also known as Prince Gung and Yi Ha Eung) (played by Jun Kwang Ryul). “
Park Shi Hoo attracted attention because he had great success in his last historical drama “The Man of the Princess” in 2011. The actor said: “Instead of putting pressure on me, I’m looking forward to it. When I read the script for the first time, it had the same feeling as reading the script” The Man of the Princess “. I’m still looking forward to it. “
He continued: “I feel good. My mood is high and good energy is gradually building up. I want to broadcast that on TV Chosun. “He also predicted a 10 percent viewership.
Go Sung Hee, who plays the main role opposite Park Shi Hoo, spoke about working with him and said: “It was really so nice. His presence alone made me feel supported and stable. When I started filming, I was very worried and not sure because I didn’t have much time to prepare. While working with him, I was able to participate. “
Park Shi Hoo commented: “We have really great chemistry. We are constantly looking for this melodrama. “
Park Shi Hoo plays Choi Cheon Joong, Joseon’s best fortune teller and face reader. When asked what he focused most on when acting, the actor said: “Since my character can predict the future, he is very relaxed. I was very focused on his piercing gaze. “He jokingly added with a laugh:” Our audience should also be careful. I always look through you. “
The rest of the cast chose what they thought was the focus of the drama. Go Sung Hee replied, “I think it will be very fun to see our luxury based on beautiful writing and impressive direction.” Jun Kwang Ryul made everyone laugh by saying, “It will be a focus to watch me.”
Kim Seung Soo commented: “Seeing the large format picture will be a focus, but it’s a drama with a lot of emotion and density. If you look closely, you will feel the real taste of this drama the more you watch. Eru said: “I think there is a lesson. “Don’t let your guard down.”
The premiere of “King Maker: The Change of Destiny” takes place on May 17th at 10:50 pm. KST and will be available on Viki!
