I never liked K-actress Jung Eun Chae until I watched her in horror thriller The Guest in 2018 thanks to my love of her two male leads in that drama Kim Dong Wook and Kim Jae Wook. She was marvelous and the drama so dark and riveting, and her character as a cop totally grungy and lanky with restrained pain. She’s taking a leap to the big leagues playing the second female lead in Kim Eun Sook‘s upcoming highly anticipated K-drama The King: Eternal Monarch, working with a screenwriter who always writes compelling second female leads. Her character in The King seems to be the antagonist and a powerful one, she’s the female prime minister in the universe where Lee Min Ho is the King of South Korea. She’s totally got the hots for him but will be stymied by the arrival of female lead Kim Go Eun who gets the man/king in both universes I’m guessing. Heck, if Jung Eun Chae doesn’t get the man at least she’s rocking the power dress and femme fatale eyeliner.
