Let $k \subset K=k(a_1,\ldots,a_n)$ be a finite separable field extension (assume that $k$ is an infinite field). We know that such an extension is simple, with infinitely many primitive elements, namely, $K = k(a_1+ \lambda_2 a_2 + \cdots +\lambda_n a_n)$ for all but finitely many $k \ni \lambda$'s. Call such $\lambda$'s "good choices".
My question: Is it possible to find a condition that will guarantee that there exist two different good choices $\lambda_i , \mu_i \in k$ such that $a_1+ \lambda_2 a_2 + \cdots +\lambda_n a_n$ and $a_1+ \mu_2 a_2 + \cdots +\mu_n a_n$ are conjugate (= have the same minimal polynomial over $k$).
Edit: The answer below only deals with a specific field $k$; I will be very grateful if one can explain what happens for other fields.
