Let’s get this out of the way, all the leads for upcoming SBS fantasy drama The King: Eternal Monarch looks great. Why wouldn’t they, with the big budget and also their natural visuals namely Lee Min Ho, Kim Go Eun, and Woo Do Hwan. I also think screenwriter Kim Eun Sook heard all the criticism lobbed at her writing of Kim Go Eun’s character in Goblin and this time actually makes her a strong, adult, and non-aegyo leaning female lead. She plays a cop and an orphaned thief in her two characters, with Lee Min Ho as the King of South Korea in a fantasy parallel universe that comes over to her world, and Woo Do Hwan is the King’s closest bodyguard in one world and also a cop in the other. I always get addicted to Kim Eun Sook dramas after watching so I don’t focus too much on the set up, it’s either going to float your boat or it won’t and I for one am super duper excited.
