Woo Do-hwan portrays Commander Jo Yeong, Emperor Lee Gon’s best friend and bodyguard in the Kingdom of Corea. In the Republic of Korea, the actor portrays Jo Eun-seop, who is fulfilling his military service as a public service worker. Whichever character he is acting as, though, Woo Do-hwan does not fail to captivate us viewers. Check out the sides of Woo Do-hwan that shine in the spotlight in his dual roles below.
4 Sides of Woo Do-han that Stole the Spotlight in ‘The King: Eternal Monarch’
4. His Stalwart Side
Jo Yeong’s No. 1 priority is Lee Gon and it’s obvious when you see how serious Woo Do-hwan looks. While a bodyguard role can easily come off as one-dimensional, Woo Do-hwan avoids that common pitfall and just looks so damn fine. Jo Yeong is loyal, reliable, and truly cares for Lee Gon.
Always vigilantly watching over the Emperor and always handsome.
3. His Sassy Side
While Jo Yeong has no choice but to follow Emperor Lee Gon’s orders, that doesn’t mean he can’t get away with being a bit sassy. Having been friends since childhood, Jo Yeong doesn’t hold back smart quips when the occasion calls for it.
Jo Yeong: You should hurry. You might be late.
Lee Gon: How long have you been standing there?
Jo Yeong: Do you really want to know?
2. His Bromantic Side
Woo Do-hwan oozes of charisma on his own, but when he’s with Lee Min-ho? It’s a recipe for surefire bromantic chemistry. Woo Do-hwan deftly showcases different types of bromances as Jo Yeong and Jo Eun-seop. Jo Yeong often gets teased by Lee Gon, while Jo Eun-seop is naive and easily won over.
1. His Adorable Side
There’s a lot of stud appeal to Jo Yeong, but Woo Do-hwan shows he’s more than just his good looks — he’s cute, too! Jo Eun-seop is, simply put, an adorable and harmless goofball. His thick Busan dialect coupled with his cute and carefree charm makes for a delightful presence.
Stay tuned because there’s more Woo Do-hwan to look forward to in next week’s episode! There’ll be more hijinks to enjoy with Jo Yeong and Jo Eun-seop. Looks like Kang Sin-jae will grapple with his birth secret. Meanwhile, Lee Gon and Lee Lim will start their battle against one another. There’s also a lot of romance to look forward to as Lee Gon asks Jeong Tae-eul if she can live in his world with him! Don’t miss out because the plot is getting juicy!
