As MBC’s new drama series The King 2 Hearts (written by Hong Jin Ah, directed by Lee Jae Kyu) is counting off its first air, the production crew held a ritual ceremony wishing for the success of the series.
On March 16, Kim Jon Hak Production which is in charge of directing the series has revealed some of the pictures taken during a ritual held on the setting in Anseong-si, Gyeonggi-do on March 9.
The ritual was held in the attendance of leading actors Ha Ji Won and Lee Seung Gi and the others, including Lee Yoon Ji, Jo Jung Suk, Lee Sung Min, Jung Man Shik, producer Lee Jae Kyu, scriptwriter Hong Jin Ah, and the president Park Chang Sik of the production company.
Feeling responsible as leading actors of the series, Ha and Lee respectfully raised a cup of drink on the table and bowed their heads. They wished for a great outcome of the series putting their heart and mind together. The lively atmosphere continued as Lee Yoon Jin and Jo Jung Suk repeated the ritual and wished for the best.
Ha said, “I will shoot with enthusiasm till the very last shooting and complete a decent series.” Lee also showed his will by saying, “I hope this series will hit jackpot.”
The producer Lee Jae Kyu shared his determination and feelings as a director, “Hope it ends in a good, healthy condition. With safety and no accidents, I hope the shooting goes smooth without a problem.”
Staff and actors at the place shouted in one voice, “Best wishes in getting high viewers ratings!” They closed the ritual with a loud clap, reminding themselves about their determination once again. Even after the ceremony, the cast and staff did not leave the place immediately, rather staying a bit longer to share and spend some time together, creating a lovely atmosphere.
Kim Jong Hak Production says, “The cast and staff of The King 2 Hearts are pouring their greatest effort and passion into making a masterpiece. They’re also giving out their best to satisfy the audience. Please give some support and cheer for this new, unique series.”
The King 2 Hearts is a melodramatic black comedy based on the premise that the Republic of Korea is a constitutional monarchy. It features a love story between the military instructor Kim Hang Ah(played by Ha Ji Won) of the North Korean Special Forces and an arrogant Prince of South Korea, Lee Jae Ha (played by Lee Seung Gi). Their relationship is to face many obstacles such as prejudice, hostile borderline between two countries, and different social status, but will eventually overcome all of it throughout the series.
