The King's AffectionStoryline And Synopsis
The story of The King's Affection will center on a wife of a crown prince who gave birth to twins, which was considered an ominous sign. The twin daughter was supposed to be killed to prevent bad luck, but her mom begged so hard just to save her life. The twin daughter was then sent out of the palace.
A few years later, the upcoming crown prince died after suffering from a fatal disease. Instead of announcing the demise of her son, the wife of the incumbent crown prince decided to hide her son's death and mourn in private. She then went back to the palace and raised the twin daughter as Prince Lee Hwi, who will eventually become a crown prince in the later part of The King's Affection.

Or, will she follow her heart? That's something we should watch out for in the upcoming The King's Affection.
