Lee Min Ho Finds Himself In Trouble With Kim Go Eun In “The King: Eternal Monarch”
“The King: Eternal Monarch” tells the story of two parallel universes where one universe is a democracy that resembles modern-day Korea as we know it, while the other is an alternate universe in which Korea is an empire ruled by a single monarch. The drama was off to a strong start, with its first episode setting a new SBS record for the highest first episode viewership ratings for a Friday-Saturday drama.
Ahead of the second episode, the drama has shared stills of Emperor Lee Gon (Lee Min Ho) and detective Jung Tae Eul’s second time seeing each other. Lee Gon is dragged to a police station in the other universe, where Jung Tae Eul attempts to figure out his identity. The pair are two forces to be reckoned with as Lee Gon keeps his regal composure while Jung Tae Eul does what she can to get information out of him.
Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun filmed the scene in February, and the two are said to have brought lively energy to the set. They went over every line with care, working hard to create the perfect scene with lines that bounced back between each other in quick succession. They are said to have left the staff laughing with their great chemistry and realistic bickering throughout the confrontational scene.
Hwa & Dam Pictures stated, “Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun are creating a fairytale-like story that takes place across two universes. Please keep watching to see how the relationship between the two evolves throughout the episodes.”
The upcoming episode of “The King: Eternal Monarch” will air on April 18 at 10 p.m. KST.
