Seven as Kang Hoo/Lee Hoo A prince raised as a commoner because his mother was thrown out of the palace shortly before his birth. After his mother's death, he was raised by one of the former Palace guards. The imperial family was unaware of his existence until he was taken into the succession line by the Empress. At the beginning, Lee Hoo seemed to be the least likely candidate to fill the spot of Crown Prince. He was rash, lacked focus and was seemingly selfish to most but as he struggled to learn of the life he was destined to live, he turned into a considerate, mature and responsible young man. He is also fair and has a great sense of right and wrong. Huh E-jae as Yang Soon-ae Prince Lee Hoo's childhood friend and one of the few that still refer him as Kang Hoo (the name he was raised as).

He was to be engaged to the Prime Minister's daughter Shin Sae-ryung and agreed to the arrangement, but later resented it as he fell for palace maid Yang Soon-ae.

She becomes conflicted when her former love, Alexander comes to Korea, when she is forced once again to choose between her love or people. Marc Andre Jourdan as Alexander The Empress's love interest. He's half-Korean, half-English, and though unable to speak fluent Korean, he is able to understand the language.

He later backed out, realizing that it would make the situation difficult for the Empress. He left Korea and later it was revealed that he also contributed to Yang Soon-ae's education fund. Oh Mi-hee as Empress Dowager The mother of the current Empress, who is rather detached from the outside world from having lived in the palace for a very long time.

Though she supported Prince Lee Hoo's father when he chose to marry a commoner, she strongly opposed his Lee Hoo's relationship with Yang Soon-ae, for fear of history repeating itself.
