Hello, my Darlings! How are you all doing? I just finished King: Eternal Monarch and it was amazing! Now I have a hangover and I need to talk about it. So let’s dive into it!
About the drama: Yi Gon is the third Korean emperor of his generation. His citizens regard him as the perfect leader. But behind this flawless appearance, hides a deep wound. When he was eight years old, his father was murdered before his eyes following a coup. Today, instead of respecting his filial duty, he prefers to escape the palace to attend university conferences. During one of his escapades, he sees himself propelled into a parallel world where he meets Jung Tae Eul, an inspector with whom he teams up with to defeat the criminals but also close the door between their two worlds.
Lee Min-ho is back!
It’s his first drama after military service and it didn’t disappoint!
Woo Do Hwan is an amazing actor
He played two very different people , one was Jo Young, the royal bodyguard to Lee Gon who takes his job very seriously, and the other Jo Eun-seob who is a public service worker at a police station. He played those two soo good, I started to think twins played those roles and not one person!
It has ACTION!
Like a lot of it!!! And it’s amazing!
The romance is the sweetest
King Lee Gon and Jong Tae-eul are the sweetest! So many cute moments between all the action. The chemistry was on point!
The multiple world situation
It’s set in two parallel universes, one is a place called the Kingdom of Corea that’s ruled by King Lee Gon and the other is present-day Korea, where police detective Jong Tae-eul is! It’s really interesting to see a parallel history in this drama, and how Korea could look if the things would play differently.
