In the November 19th and 20th episode of the tvN drama “Under the Queen’s Umbrella”, Kang Chan Hee’s character, Prince Uiseong, was finally eliminated from the selection of the crown prince.
Previously, Prince Uiseong seemed to have given up his desire to get the throne after Grand Prince Seongnam (Moon Sang Min) was named the new Crown Prince. However, he suddenly made viewers anxious by implying dark intentions, saying, “Not everyone can become kings after they become crown princes.”
In addition, in the process of uncovering the birth secret of Crown Prince Seongnam, the Queen Dowager (Kim Hae Sook) sensed something strange about Prince Uiseong’s birth, amplifying curiosity. Tensions are now higher than ever as speculations regarding Prince Uiseong’s birth secret are raised.
Earlier in the series, Prince Uiseong committed all sorts of evil acts with the help of Royal Consort Hwang Gwi In (Ok Ja Yeon) and the Chief State Councillor Hwang Won Hyeong (Kim Eui Sung). Now, in order to become the Crown Prince, he is evolving into a vicious figure, plotting and committing murder himself.
As a result of this, actor Kang Chan Hee also shows the appearance of an evolving villain with cooler looks and bolder actions. He also draws favorable reviews for his excellent portrayal of Prince Uiseong, from a clever calmness, a deep secretiveness, and observant nature.
Viewers are highly anticipating to see the conspiracies that Prince Uiseong, who refused to give up the throne easily, will commit in the future.
Meanwhile, Kang Chan Hee made his first public appearance as a “little TVXQ” through the 2007 SBS program “Star King”. In 2016, he debuted as a member of the FNC boy group SF9, and assumed the stage name Chani. Now, he is active as both an idol and blossoming actor.
