South Korea is a democratic country since 1948. So in modern days, South Koreans elect presidents. However, there are a few K-Dramas that portrayed Korea as a monarchy with King, Prince, Queen, and Princess. It is one popular theme.

The production team needs to come up with a whole design of outfits and sets to portray a Korean monarchy in modern days. The actors taking on an imperial/royal role have stunning costumes.

The new drama "The King: Eternal Monarch" has this thematic and Lee MinHo took on the role of an emperor. It is time to look at four other actors that took on the role of King, Prince, and Emperor in modern days with nice costumes.

 

1- "Princess Hours" (2006) - Ju JiHoon & Kim JeongHoon

In "Princess Hours", Ju JiHoon is acting as Crown Prince Lee Shin and Kim JeongHoon as Prince Lee Yul. Ju JiHoon was the lead and he was seen wearing quite a lot of outfits for the show: from traditional Korean outfits, suits, and much more.
