  1. 1 : Daniela Says:

    Very excited for the new historical drama of Park Si Hoo after 9 years since his iconic drama “The Princess’ Man”, a classic of its genre. From description, Park Si Hoo’s character is an exceptional man with outstanding qualities, a king maker. I hope it will be as memorable as Kim Seung Yoo from TPM. I’m glad there are 24 episodes to enjoy every Sunday during six months. I’m wishing Park Si Hoo and the whole cast and crew to stay healthy and safe and this production to be a great success. WCR Hwaiting!

    Less than a day before WCR’s premiere. Here we can see a long preview upload by TV Chosun:
    It looks like a great production with a lot of ups and downs and an intriguing plot. I wish good luck in conquering and keeping the viewers’ interest from start to end and the cast&crew’s efforts to be appreciate. Hwaiting!

  8. 8 : Daniela Says:

    “The cast and crew of upcoming historical drama “King Maker: The Change of Destiny” recently discussed chemistry, viewership ratings, focal points, and more!
    On May 14, TV Chosun ran a livestream broadcast for the “King Maker: The Change of Destiny” press conference. Present were actors Park Shi Hoo, Go Sung Hee, Jun Kwang Ryul, Sung Hyuk, Kim Seung Soo, Eru, and producing director (PD) Yoon Sang Ho.
    This historical drama is about the struggle for the throne between kingmakers with psychic abilities. The PD introduced “King Maker: The Change of Destiny” as “both a political drama about those with greed and a melodrama with love. In the end, it’s a human drama that touches hearts.”
    The drama also features both factual and fictional characters. Yoon Sang Ho explained, “The only characters who really exist in history include Lee Ha Sun (played by Eru) and regent Heungseon Daewongun (also known as Prince Gung and Yi Ha Eung) (played by Jun Kwang Ryul).”
    Park Shi Hoo garnered attention for having seen lots of success in his last historical drama, “The Princess’s Man,” back in 2011. The actor shared, “Rather than feeling pressured, I am looking forward to this. When I first read the script, it had the same feel as when I read ‘The Princess’s Man’ script. I am looking forward to this one more.”
    He continued, “I feel good. My spirits are high and good energy is gradually building. I want to transfer this to TV Chosun.” He also predicted viewership ratings of 10 percent.
    Go Sung Hee, who stars opposite Park Shi Hoo, talked about working with him, sharing, “It was really so nice. Just by him being there, I was able to feel supported and stable. At the start of filming, I worried a lot and was unsure because I didn’t have a lot of time to prepare. While working with him, I was able to follow along.”
    Park Shi Hoo commented, “We have really great chemistry. We’re constantly looking through one another for this melodrama.”
    Park Shi Hoo plays Choi Cheon Joong, who is Joseon’s best fortune teller and face reader. When asked what he focused on most while acting, the actor shared, “Since my character can foresee the future, he is very relaxed. I focused a lot on his piercing gaze.” He jokingly added with a laugh, “Our viewers should be careful too. I’m always looking through you.”
    The rest of the cast picked what they thought was the drama’s focal point. Go Sung Hee answered, “I think it will be very fun to see our luxury acting on top of the foundation of beautiful writing and impressive directing.” Jun Kwang Ryul made everyone laugh by sharing, “Watching me will be a focal point.”
    Kim Seung Soo commented, “Seeing the large-scale picture will be a focal point, but it is a drama with a lot of emotion and density. If you watch closely, you will be able to feel the true taste of this drama the more you watch.” Eru shared, “I think there is a lesson. ‘Don’t let your guard down.'”” source Soompi
    If Park Si Hoo said this drama has TPM’s vibe then it is so. It will be very exciting to watch. I’m happy he had the chance to receive the leading role in a historical drama.

  9. 9 : mehrdad safari Says:

    This drama can be one the best in 2020
    I just see the first Ep and that was enough to get me

  10. 10 : AnCe Says:

    Woah 24 episodes and another once a week drama?

  11. 11 : Daniela Says:

    The first episode elicits to convince me that it’s a very promising drama so I look forward to the next episode.

  12. 12 : Daniela Says:

    As I read on other sites WCR is a Saturday-Sunday drama so we’ll have two episodes every weekend. If is that so then the admin of this site must correct the dates of airing.

  13. 13 : tigerb Says:

    @Daniela#12: Hi Daniela! nice to see you again, of course in a page where PSH stars in a drama. i was so bored today and luckily found a web site that featured this drama, which i never knew previously, so lo and behold, it’s a PSH drama! how have you been? like you said it’s promising, so will follow through.

  14. 14 : Daniela Says:

    Hi @tigerb! nice to meet you. Well I expected this project, firstly bcs is Park Si Hoo’s first historical drama after 9 years since TPM and secondly bcs in this drama he is the protagonist, the first name on the cast list and truth to be told I missed him in such role thinking that he hasn’t much years ahead to play a hero displaying outstanding physical qualities as it was Kim Seung Yoo from TPM, not to mention that him in traditional clothing is an enchanting view. TPM had an amazing OST, I hope WCR will have a beautiful music too so yeah let’s enjoy his project to the fullest.
