The third K-drama is "The King 2 Hearts". I'm really love this drama. All of the drama that I've watched until now this is my favorite. Because this drama, I'm fall in love with Lee Seung Ki. He is so handsome in this drama. Hehehe..
Now, I will to write the synopsis of K-drama "The King 2 Hearts".
Set in a fictional present day where South Korea is governed under a constitutional monarchy, "The King 2 Hearts" tell the story of Prince Lee Jae Ha (Lee Seung Ki) from South Korea and North Korean Special Force instructor Kim Hang Ah (Ha Ji Won) who become husband and wife through an arranged marriage.
Begins in 1989 when the Berlin Wall collapses, a King and Crown Prince watch on TV, but the young Prince doesn't care what is happening on the television. Prince Jae Ha doesn't want even to become the king. 23 years later, Prince Jae Ha takes military training. He isn't serious about anything, a plyboy of sorts who looks forward to his discharge from the military. Meanwhile, the King Lee Jae Kang (Lee Sung Min) announces that military officers from South and North Korea will hold joint training sessions. The unified team will take part in the WOC (World Officer Championship).
Hang Ah is a special forces instructur in North Korea. She is a great soldier with exceptional skills, but Hang Ah longs to find a fine man to marry, just like other ordinary women. Due to her career in the military, she has never been in a romantic relationship. A high ranking military officer then asks Hang Ah to join the WOC. Hang Ah turns down the offer due to offer due to fears it might hurt her ability to eventually marry. The high ranking officer offers that if she joins the WOC, the North Korean government will take responsibility for her marriage and find her the right man. Hang Ah accepts the offer and with two other members travels to South Korea.
Jae Ha is the first one from the royal family who is discharged from the military as a low ranking private, but he doesn't care. Jae Ha is just excited to get his release from the military. Unfortunately for Jae Ha, he learns that he is selected as a member of the joint Korean team for the WOC. Jae Ha is furious at his older brother, the King Jae Kang, but the King threatens to kick him out of the family if he refuses. Jae Ha now has no choice but to join.
During the training period for WOC, North and South Korean military officers must room together. Jae Ha sees his roommate, busy doing martial arts. Jae Ha runs to a high ranking officers and asks for his own private room. The high ranking officer refuses his request and Jae Ha must room with Hang Ah. *Wow! And then what happened between them?! I think you must be corious. Hehehe.. So, you must watch this drama!*
Now, I will to describe the characters.
Kim Hang Ah is the main actress on K-drama "The King 2 Hearts". She is the greatest North Korean female soldier. She is legendary for her combat skills and beauty. However, Hang Ah wishes to live an ordinary life and have a nice boyfriend. To seize one last opportunity in her life, she enters the World Officer Championship and trains hard to win. But the only reward she receives for her efforts is meeting the South Korean prince Lee Jae Ha. In their first encounter, they have a terrible fight. Prince Lee Jae Ha derided her and insulted her country. But somehow he has also stolen her heart. Prince Jae Ha quickly discovers that she has feelings for him and begins to play games with her heart. Now it has become personal and she will get back at Jae Ha for being so mean to her.
The main actor is Lee Jae Ha. He deliberately acts like a carefree soul who whiles away the time because he does not want to be chosen to be the king. His IQ is 187. His life was going as planned as he put on an act a lazy and eccentric person but then he faces an unexpected crisis. After completing his mandatory two years in the army, his older brother assigns him to a team that will enter the World Officer Championship, which is full of participants from communist nations. That in itself irritates him but then his brother tells him to marry a North Korean woman. Trying to avoid marriage, he comes up with ideas to escape this order. Just then, his brother, mother and sister face a crisis and Hang Ah is pushed to the brink. He can no longer tolerate the way things are unfolding in his life.
The antagonist actor is Kim Bong Gu or John Mayer (Yoon Je Moon). He is the chairman of an international defense contractor and has enormous influence in world affairs. He goes by the name John Mayer while his Korean name is Kim Bong Gu. He seeks out his father in America and uses his power of persuasion to inherit his dad's company and become the new chairman. But he hears news that North Korea and South Korea are trying to settle into a peaceful relationship. How dare they affect his company's bottom line? He is hell-bent on making the people who are behind this peace effort to pay for annoying and humiliating him. There can only be one king in the nation.
Another protagonis actress is Lee Jae Shin (Lee Yoon Ji). She is the princess and youngest daughter, and thus, her parents doted on her. She is attractive, intelligent, and carefree. While studying applied music in Britain, she returns to Korea abruptly after hearing that her brother is having an engagement ceremony. But she is entangled in an unexpected incident. She is plunged in a terrible situation but finds a way out. She encounters Eun Shi Kyung (Jo Jung Suk) who is the exact opposite of her and after many awkward interactions with him, she learns about the world she was sheltered from. But she still does not know much about herself as she is self-centered. The fragments of memories that are buried deep in the recesses of her mind turn out to be crucial clues that could decide the fate of the country.
The last character that I'll to describe is Eun Shi Kyung (Jo Jung Suk). He will not compromise. He only focuses on what lies ahead in his life. He is a major general and shows strict discipline. But he faces two strange characters in his life - Lee Jae Ha, a clever prince, and Lee Jae Shin, a carefree princess. He wonders what he did to deserve these twin problems in his life. Although they disrupt his disciplined life and cause chaos, he finds himself warming up to their charming qualities.
Okay! It's enough for me to give you the describe of characters. I will not to descibe all of the characters. Hehehe..
In this drama, I'm also fall in love with Jo Jung Suk who is person as Eun Shi Kyung. Before this drama, he played in K-drama "What's Up?". I think he is so handsome. Hehe..
