anyway i found this fun little personality test floating around twitter if yall are interested :D https://cleardin.com/queen 

i got cheoljong (infp)! ^^

Yes, you're right.

I think I watched his interview/old IG story some days ago when he said that his MBTI personality type is INFP. Well, knowing that he's so perfectionist and serious playing his role in films, It does really fit him.

After watching BTS video I noticed three things:

 

1) Shin Hye Sun is really quite tall. She’s 172 cm and looks even taller because she’s thin. Some k-actresses have to stand a stool during a kiss scene but she isn’t that much shorter than her male co-stars.

 

2) Kim Jung Hyun has such a perfect jawline. I thought it was a clever lighting that made his jawline so chiselled but watching BTS he has a beautiful jawline even with a normal light.

 

3) Kim Jung Hyun was quite serious even after a kiss. Usually actors have the same reaction as Shin Hye Sun - they try to laugh or joke around to make it less awkward. But look at KJH - he’s so serious when the director shouted cut. I wonder why? But it’s still cute they can’t look into each other’s eyes.:fullofhearts:

 

In the last gif, even though SHS tried to laugh, she still seemed stunned. And KJH hands gesture seemed to me like saying "okay, stop now, easy...". 

 

And after that scene, they still needed to shoot another kissing scenes! so yeah, still needed to immerse into their characters

 

omg, I'm officially ship this couple!!

I know that they act professional

But but but, their chemistry is so magnetic! :please: 

 

They seem so comfortable to each other when they had interview last time, and the BTS, joking around and playful...  They're so adorable!:cutekitty: 

Not to mention that both of them are very talented and serious with their roles.

 

For me they look so "IN SYNC" together. They seem have many things in common!! [am I being delusional now? :crazymad:]

Mr. Queen” lead actors Shin Hye Sun and Kim Jung Hyun have answered questions for international viewers of the drama!

 

tvN’s “Mr. Queen” is a fusion historical drama that has been gathering plenty of fans both domestically and abroad. Check out Shin Hye Sun and Kim Jung Hyun’s exclusive interview with Viki and Soompi below, and make sure to read until the end to see their message to global fans!

Please introduce your character.

Kim Jung Hyun: In Mr. Queen, Cheoljong is a “two-faced king” who can be naive but also level-headed at other times.

Shin Hye Sun: “Mr. Queen” is a soul-escaping drama about a two-faced king and a queen whose soul is switched with that of a pretentious modern-day Korean man and gains an over-the-top personality. In the drama, I play the role of Kim So Yong—both the original Joseon Dynasty queen who has lived within strict rules and the one that was combined with the soul of the vigorous modern-day Korean man Jang Bong Hwan.

Is there a specific aspect that you prepared or paid special attention to for your role in “Mr. Queen”?

Kim Jung Hyun: There are many action scenes as it is a historical drama, so I practiced horseback riding and martial arts for filming. I also put a lot of thought in how to portray the historical figure showing growth through an unexpected incident, and I analyzed with depth in hopes that my way of expression will be adequate.

Shin Hye Sun: Because the character I play is a Joseon Dynasty queen on the outside with the soul of a modern man on the inside, I focused my thoughts on how to avoid making the viewers uncomfortable and did my best to portray it in a way that wouldn’t cause discomfort. And rather than differentiating So Yong and Bong Hwan by their genders, I approached it by distinguishing the two characters’ personalities.

MORE

Spoiler

 

There are many diverse characters in “Mr. Queen.” What other character would you like to try out besides your own?

Kim Jung Hyun: I think a man’s soul being trapped in a queen’s body is an interesting concept, so I would like to try acting out the role of Kim So Yong.

Shin Hye Sun: I think the role of Kim Byung In played by Na In Woo is very charming. There are his action scenes, of course, but he loves someone yearningly while also having a hidden side due to his personal troubles. His diverse sides captured my attention.

Of the Joseon Dynasty speech that you learned while filming “Mr. Queen,” is there a word or phrase you would like to introduce to international fans?

Kim Jung Hyun: Yeonmo is said quite often [in the drama]. It can be similar to sarang (love), but it also includes the emotion of earnest longing. I think it is a more rich expression of love.

Shin Hye Sun: One of So Yong’s lines is, “You have to yeonmo me.” How about using this phrase when confessing love in the future?

Hanbok vs. modern day clothing

Kim Jung Hyun: Modern day clothing.

Shin Hye Sun: Modern day clothing. Although the hanbok is Korea’s beautiful traditional clothing, modern day clothing is more comfortable for me right now.

What era and country would you like to time slip to?

Kim Jung Hyun: Genghis Khan’s era in Mongolia.

Shin Hye Sun: Korea in the 1990s. I’d like to try returning to my childhood.

If your soul were to be switched: Blue House chef vs. Joseon Dynasty queen vs. Joseon Dynasty Cheoljong

Kim Jung Hyun: Blue House chef.

Shin Hye Sun: Blue House chef, since I’m living in this era currently.

Please share a message for the international fans who are tuning into “Mr. Queen”!

Kim Jung Hyun: Everyone is experiencing lethargic lifestyles these days. We will successfully overcome this, and I believe that this lifestyle right now will become a memory for us one day. I hope you will laugh a lot and take a brief break while watching “Mr. Queen.” I think this is a time when we need a bit of comfort, rather than a powerful message within the drama. It would make me happy more than anything if you take a moment to laugh.

 

Shin Hye Sun: To the viewers of “Mr. Queen,” I hope that you put your burdens and worries down for a moment and have a fun and refreshing time watching our drama. Please take care of your health, and I hope your days are filled with happiness~ I’ll see you in “Mr. Queen.” Thank you.

LOL since when does So Bong suddenly trust the royal physician? Didn’t she dismiss him several times because of his incompetence? But he’s giving her a lame explanation for what she’s feeling and she believes him? Hm... I smell a strong denial...

 

Oh poor Cheoljong, is he so blinded by his feelings for So Bong that he doesn’t see it immediately that it’s a trap?

 

Oh my god, is one of them going to be in danger? 

 

I think So Bong need another hot make out session with Cheol Jong so she can confirm what is actually her real feeling towards him

:shaq:

 

This is so true:D

Maybe at that time Kim Jung Hyun was so immersed in the character. 

Or maybe he was busy thinking in his mind that they will have another longgg kiss scene after this LOL

 

I remember Kim Jung Hyun in the drama's interview with Shin Hye Sun few week/days before this drama airing mentioned that at first he and Shin Hye Sun pretended to be close behind the scene then after they really become closer and comfortable behind the scene they revealed to each other that actually they just pretended to be close at the beginning hahaha

 

Their interactions behind the scene is like buddies besties:D

I wonder since when they started to become closer and comfortable with each other behind the scene.

Since they started filming this drama around June/July 2020 it hard to guess which scene was filmed first which scene was filmed later.

Couldn’t get enough of Mr. Queen stuff on Twitter and (very impatiently) waiting for the other episodes this week.

 

Am so glad I found this forum!

The fact that we're definitely going to get another scene as such (with her sober and fully consenting) is the only thing getting me through this crappy start of a year...

 

Yes, I agree. That’s the only thing that makes me patient enough, that there will be a scene where it’s just 2 of them willingly and with awareness of their feelings.

wow KJH's MBTI's INFP? that' very very rare for guys. coupled with his wonderful physique, he just became my dream guy :love:

 

apart from swooning over SHS x KJH moments, SHS cuteness, can't help but also gush over KJH broad shoulders. he looked gorgeous in many of the attires but my favorite is when he's wearing white like this one and when he's in the bath tub with the queen :heart:

I haven't watched a sageuk in a while (Kingdom was prob the most recent one), but I always found it interesting that while European royals had mistresses and illegitimate children, it was usually frowned upon. However, in Joseon, kings be having concubines and multiple children like nobody's business lmao AND it was encouraged

 

In Asian historical dramas especially involving royalty, concubine is common LOL

I'm quite interested with concubine thing after watching Chinese and Korean historical dramas.

 

If anyone interested, you can read here:

Since Mr Queen is a historical romcom, our current Queen So Bong here is unbothered and her scenes are mainly funny but if this is a serious then her part will be like the past Kim So Yong:tears:

And then the wife of King Sejong who is the third son of Queen Wongyeong and King Teajong, Queen Soheon's family members also suffered. But Queen Soheon still supported her husband until the end:(

King without any concubine in Joseon dynasty?

I found one:

King Hyeonjong, the 18th King of the Joseon dynasty.

His wife was Queen Myeongseong.

Spoiler

Queen Myeongseong was a wise and intelligent figure, but her fierce personality was said to be the reason why her husband did not have any concubine throughout his lifetime.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyeonjong_of_Joseon

 

Well, when mentioned about concubines, automatically it remind me of the emperor's concubine in Chinese historical dramas and their crazy story LOL

 

But there was a Chinese emperor without any concubine:

Emperor Hongzhi, the 10th Emperor of the Ming dynasty.

His wife was Empress Xiaochengjing.

The reason why he didn't take any concubine?

I am wondering how they will end this, and also how I want them to end this.

 

According to Wikipedia, the real King Cheoljong died in his thirties and was survived by Queen Cheorin, and there was a fight about his successor. I would like it that in the show, they explain that Cheoljong actually disappeared and went with So Yong to modern day Korea. So they made up a story that he died to explain his disappearance. That way, he gets to escape his nightmare life.

 

But I am conflicted - do I want him to be with So Yong or So Yong possessed by Jang Bong Hwan? I like So Yong but I would also like Jang Bong Hwan to live and have his revenge on the baddies. So will the show have to choose between the two, and destroy one. Couldn't we have So Yong and Cheoljong both go to modern day Korea, but also have So Yong separated from JBH's soul? With the way So Yong is developing, we are seeing that perhaps the real So Yong is not that different from JBH, just less brave and less able to break out of the conventional thinking.

I think one of the reasons why Mr Queen is so popular is because we still don’t know how it ends. Because Go Princess Go had multiple endings we don’t know if Mr Queen will choose one of them or if it’s going to create its own unique ending.

 

If it wasn’t Korean drama, it’d say it’s pretty clear Cheoljong and Bong Hwan are the endgame. This is what the writer has been showing us so far. Based on a narrative perspective the writer has chosen, the main character is Jang Bong Hwan, not Kim So Yong. We’ve been watching his story while Kim So Yong is a narrative tool to progress/develop his journey. As a viewer I’m invested in Jang Bong Hwan because that’s what the writer chose to show me. As a viewer I see Cheoljong falling for Bong Hwan’s personality, whereas So Yong’s memories and feelings are the way for Bong Hwan to question his identity/attraction towards Cheoljong. This is a logical conclusion.
 

But because people are conservative in Korea, I really don’t know where the story’s going. People say So Yong needs to come back to her body and live happily ever after with Cheoljong while retaining some of Bong Hwan’s quirks which sounds like a half-baked conclusion to me. Let’s say Bong Hwan falls in love with Cheoljong for real. Not because the body he inhibits tells him so, but because he truly feels love, something he hasn’t experienced despite dating plenty of women. Should Bong Hwan just step down in the end to let So Yong take it all?

 

That’s why I think the best solution would be to make Bong Hwan the reincarnation of So Yong. That way people wouldn’t feel it’s unfair to either BH or SY. And that way more conservative viewers wouldn’t be offended by the idea that a man could love another man.

One scenario: They die either as they do in history or in a new dramatic fashion. This gives us the tragic, doomed lovers ending. 

 

Bong Hwan wakes up in the present to find himself recovered, sadder but wiser. He deals with Han and in the process, meets a woman with some very familiar habits and mannerisms... This provides the promise of a happy, romantic ending!

 

This of course assumes the show can get one or more full episodes with Choi Jin Hyuk.

 

Speaking of Netflix, I would not be surprised to see a Western company option the rights to this story and set it in Europe, given its success.

 

If they wanted to keep the stakes high (and had a big budget), they might place a modern-day Londoner in the body of Margaret of Anjou just ahead of the war between the great English houses Lancaster and York (Cersei Lannister from “Game of Thrones” was largely based on Margaret). Per early historian Edward Hall, “this woman excelled all other, as well in beauty and favour, as in wit and policy, and was of stomach and courage, more like to a man, than a woman.” Her husband Henry was more interested in religion and learning than in military matters and his actions had been controlled by magnates who were effectively regents since he was little…  Sounds familiar!

 

If they wanted a gentler comedy of manners, they could set the story in Regency England. Like, say, Bridgerton.

 

Set it France and you have a ton of options. You think Queen Sun Won is bad, imagine having Catherine de' Medici breathing down your neck!

I was rewatching Mr Queen and I totally forgot this scene from episode 1. Court ladies swooning over the king.

So I compiled my favourite shots of our king. Everyone has their own favourite moments but here are mine. I mean, Kim Jung Hyun doesn’t have any scenes where he looks bad but these moments stood out to me because of a particular angle, his subtle smile, or his intense eyes. I can’t be the only one who finds him more and more attractive with each episode, right?

I am watching kdramas for almost 10 years and always was a silent soompi reader. But this drama made me sign up. As long as it makes me smile who cares what others think :) since i am here now, i want to write some. 
 

I think  the best ending is so yong and bong hwan having the same soul. Then so yong can have both memory of past and future life.  that means the future bong hwan can wake up and keep on his life. 

 

If it is not, then i prefer the ending game as so yong and the king. Why? 

 

Because bong hwan is a straight guy. Forcing him to like the king is same thing as forcing a gay guy to like opposite sex because he is in a man’s body. 

 

The show try to show us the feelings so bong has belongs to so yong. When they kissed it was so yong. They made it clear when she opened her eyes. Thats why he slapped her. 

 

And we are all hating hwa jin because she is a fake so yong. What about bong hwan? When the king learn the truth of past, he will be a fake so young, too.  He is not the one who saved the king. I do not want so yong being disappear, She deserves to be remembered by the ones she loved. 

 

Then, Bong hwan should go back to his life and take his revenge, fall in love and  have his happy ending. 

 

I agree it is a little unfair for the king. But, If the king meet with a guy who has same personality, he would not fall in love. He fall in love with both. And i feel like so yong had a very similar personality to bong hwan. Because even the ones closest to her do not think she behaves very strange makes me think she was strange from the beginning :)

Hi Chingu,

 

I just did some history backgroud of Queen Cheorin.

 

We will not get royal baby so soon...(around 7 year later royal baby was born)

 

History background of Queen Cheorin:

She was the daughter of Kim Mun-geun (Hangul: 김문근, Hanja: 金汶根) and his second wife, Lady Heung-yang of the Yeoheung Min clan (Hangul: 흥양부부인 여흥 민씨, Hanja: 興陽府夫人 驪興 閔氏). As part of the Andong Kim clan's manipulation of King Cheoljong, she married Cheoljong in 1851.

 

Son

  • Prince Royal Yi Yung-jun (원자 융준, 元子 隆俊) (22 November 1858 - 25 May 1859)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wonder if the drama will follow loosely on Korean actual history or they will follow the Chinese drama version.

 

Not that I want to compare, but if they were to follow the C-drama, I believe it will still be BH in SY’s body in the end. (Don’t want to spoil it so just leave it at that)

 

Initially, I was thinking that if they do not follow actual Korean history (as in this is all just fake events), perhaps SoBong will save the King from death or something and then sacrifice his life as SY and go back to his own body. SY wakes back up in her own body. Then they both each meet their soulmate in their own lives as themselves, which for BH is just another version of Cheoljong.

 

Cos in actual Korean history, I think Cheoljong dies first in 1864. 

 

So I feel like personally, they may not follow the actual Korean history. They did say that any events, families or etc is purely fictional at the start of the intro, so they can take some creative liberties...

 

I just hope they do SoBong and Cheoljong justice.

Shin Hye Sun Shakes Up Royal Cuisine By Hilariously “Inventing” A Modern Dish On “Mr. Queen”

 
Jan 15, 2021
by E. Cha
 

Shin Hye Sun will be shaking up the palace kitchens on the next episode of tvN’s “Mr. Queen”!

Spoilers

Previously on “Mr. Queen,” Kim So Yong (played by Shin Hye Sun) and King Cheoljong (played by Kim Jung Hyun) started to feel drawn to one another, raising the question of how their evolving relationship will change the power dynamics within the palace.

On January 15, the hit drama released a fun sneak peek of its upcoming episode, in which Kim So Yong will breathe fresh air into Joseon royal cuisine by hilariously “inventing” a dish that no one there has ever heard of: tornado potatoes, a popular Korean street food from modern day.

After being ordered by Queen Sunwon (played by Bae Jong Ok) to teach royal chef Man Bok (played by Kim In Kwon) her cooking skills, Kim So Yong begins to feel nervous that she may soon no longer be “needed” around the palace. In an attempt to survive, Kim So Yong will attempt to use her K-beauty know-how to prove her value—but she eventually winds up being forced to return to the kitchen to bring out the big guns by playing her “tornado potatoes card.”

Shin-Hye-Sun-21.jpgShin-Hye-Sun-31.jpgKim-In-Kwon.jpgMr.-Queen4.jpg

To find out why Kim So Yong must abandon her foray into K-beauty and turn to tornado potatoes as a last resort, viewers will need to tune in to the next episode of “Mr. Queen” on January 16.

The producers of “Mr. Queen” teased, “The changes in Cheoljong and Kim So Yong, who is currently in fierce denial of her growing feelings, will also shake up the power dynamics within the palace. Please look forward to the drama’s second act, which will become even more electrifying through heart-fluttering transformations.”

I think when trouble happened in kitchen, the queen would go to handle it. And The King would feel ease because he knew that the queen could solve it. 

But I also had the feeling the reason that the queen couldn't enter the kitchen because the king worried that something happened again if the Queen stayed in kitchen.

 

But I really wanted the king to taste the queen's food. Omo I wanna him to be addicted to soul of The Queen's food like The Great Queen Dowager did...
