Kim Hye Soo portrays Hwa Ryeong as a character who is dignified, charismatic and witty.

Unlike them, Hwa Ryeong is a character who is easily shaken by power and ambition. With her overwhelming love for her children, Hwa Ryeong is moved only by safety inside the palace. While Queen Dowager and the Royal Consort Hwang Gwi In’s side was using all kinds of tricks during the preparation for the Crown Prince selection, Hwa Ryeong tried her best to prevent the grand princes and other princes from competing fiercely. Hwa Ryeong’s witty sense, which converts crises into opportunities so that Queen Dowager and the Royal Consort Hwang Gwi In’s tricks can become something that supports her, is considered one of the viewing points for “The Queen’s Umbrella”.

In addition, Hwa Ryeong’s appearance, which is firm in front of the strong but soft in front of the weak, acts as another attraction for the drama. Hwa Ryeon, who worries for everyone and is busier than anyone else, moved the viewers’ hearts many times. In particular, the scenes where she comforted Prince Simso (Moon Seong Hyun), who returned from the verge of death, and cared for Royal Consort Go Gwi In (Woo Jung Won), who hurt his son with harsh words, was enough to show Hwa Ryeong’s deep love and kind-hearted personality.
