Esquire Korea recently released photos of actor Kim Jung-hyun who was the leading man in the drama "Mr. Queen" which ended on February 14th. "Mr. Queen" is about a modern day male chef who has timeslipped into nineteenth century Joseon, as well as into the body of a female royal consort. Kim Jung-hyun played the role of King Cheoljong.

Kim Jung-hyun claims in the relevant interview that his rule for comedy, whatever the outline, is whether he can make his fellow cast and crew laugh. Kim Jung-hyun claims that he does this through very precise technique.
Kim Jung-hyun was also gracious in the interview, stating that his main goal for any project is to make something that people are willing to spend their own personal time to watch and maybe even get back to. Kim Jung-hyun claimed to be working very hard to communicate an effective message to his viewers. Kim Jung-hyun also described this process as hard work.
Kim Jung-hyun also voiced the opinion that the next year or two would be crucial for his career, and seemed determined not to rest on his laurels.
