Quotes From Drama King’s Affection

Here we present some quotes from the drama The King’s Affection excerpts that we have summarized from several episodes that have aired the cafehallyu version.

The benevolent shall not worry,
the wise will not be cajoled,
and the brave will not be afraid.

Owning what you studied is of more importance than reading the words.

Eat even if rice tastes like sand in your mouth.
And drink water even if it tastes like bitter medicine.
I don’t want to. I hate everything.
If you give up now, it will mean death for everyone around you.
Including you and me. Everyone.

You are not to worry about other people.
Think only about yourself.
You are not to care about what others think of you.

It is only fair that
I apologize to whoever deserves my apology when I’m at fault.
No matter what my title may be.

They must know their place.
Make them fear you.
So don’t let them get close to you.
Only then will you survive.
Even your shoulders.
And your stance must be wider.

Be it hatred or resentment. I do not care what it is.
Learn to live with it.
As long as it gives you the will to live, it is enough.

The King’s Affection Famous Line

Live even if your heart is burdened.

If justice means to be upright and moral at the expense of one’s own family,
to forever reach an agreement with injustice itself.

Don’t distance yourself too much.
It’ll only make you lonelier.
Human emotions are the hardest to trust.
Killing others to protect ones

Wealth brings prosperity to families
while virtue enriches a soul.

All these moral values make up the truth.
And the universal truth will be clear as day.

One can only rule a nation if all is well within his family.
All goes well when one’s home is harmonious.

Doing what you love and being happy is the definition of a successful life.
So don’t let others intimidate you
and live your life as you wish.
Don’t let others dictate your life.

People like you who were born with a silver spoon
are hypocrites who pretend to care for the people.
And I want to destroy people like you.

It’s not common
for someone else to share the same feelings. 
Episode 9

Sometimes, I think about how it would be to live a normal life like them.
Laughing as they please
and crying their hearts out whenever they want to.
It’s impossible to be true to myself
when I’m in the palace.
Episode 10

A friendship between a man and a woman may not be possible.
Episode 11

in episode 12 from drama The King’s Affection there is a letter from King Hyejong to the Crown Prince Lee Hwi. See Letter From King Hyejong to Lee Hwi.
