Love and trust are hard to come by in a world where actions are determined by misguided conceptions instead of heart and conscience. Not only do you fear being misunderstood, but your life is also lived in a state of constant fear of being found out.
This is what awaits the fate of the two little twins born into an unsafe and unjust world. The King’s Affection follows the story of a Prince, his wife, and the crimes commit against their kids, who happen to be twins. The premise of the story and the subtle ways it weaves around your mind and heart makes it so hauntingly beautiful.
So without testing your patience any longer, let’s talk about its story detail and look at the possible release of its second season.
The King’s Affection Season 2 Release Date
A series’ future, no matter how good it is or how much potential its plot holds, largely depends on the ratings it receives. Its popularity determines whether it will see the dawn of a new season. ‘The King’s Affection’ however, received a lot of positive responses from the audience.
It was very well adored by the fans and the storyline, though ended on a satisfying note, contained seeds of more growth in the future so we are hopeful for a second season’s release. It’s only been a year since the series made its debut back on 11 October 2021. And as you are well aware, it’s not unusual for seasons to be released as long as two years apart so don’t give up on your dreams to watch your favorite characters come alive again.

The King’s Affection Season 2 Story
While we wait for the next season for the continuation of this delightful story, let’s freshen up our memory of its predecessor.
Set in the Joseon Dynasty, the story begins with a traumatic birth and an even more dangerous set of events. The King’s palace just witnessed the birth of twins. Shouldn’t that be a cause for celebration? Not in this era.
It’s believed that twins bring bad luck and are an unfortunate omen. So, following his advisor’s counsel, he orders the girl child to be killed. The monstrous gravity of just the thought of such an action brings shivers to our spine! We wonder how those words could even pass through his lips! But there it is, the brutal truth of the royal family.
But a mother’s heart can never be as cruel as that, and so she makes provisions for removing the little baby girl from the palace and sending her away.
Years pass and this horrible night are washed away from every mind (more or less) until one day the twins meet again. Lee Hwi, the twin girl, and Lee Hyun, the crown prince, cross paths, and the latter is startled by the similarities.
Now, it seems the court life doesn’t suit the prince too much because he offers Lee Hwi a chance to stay at court as she poses to be the prince and they switch places from time to time.
And as is the case with any plot with twins, chaos, confusion, and danger is just a stone’s throw away. Will their identities be revealed? Will either of them get to know the truth? Will the King get what he so aptly deserves?
These are the questions that went through our minds as the plot thickened. But since we don’t believe in too many spoilers, we’ll let you find the answers by yourself.
Now given that the first season ended on a very dramatic note. what with Lee Hwi (or Dami-I) taking the place of her grandfather after he dies and finding the love of her life (hey, that doesn’t count as a spoiler!), it’s very possible that the next season’s plot will pick up from there. We might also get to see the delightful princess rule the kingdom. How delightful would that be!
The King’s Affection Season 2 Cast
The first season of King’s Affection saw Park Eun-bin in the role of Crown Prince Lee Hwi and the gorgeous Yeon Seon playing Lee hwi or Dam-i. We also got Kim Ro-woon in the role of the heartthrob, Jung Ji-woon.
So it’s very likely that these main characters will still be seen in the next season of the show. Then there might be some additional members as well, which would largely depend on the plot of the show.
