I’m of mixed mind on this and of course what I think doesn’t matter as the end result will speak for itself. In a wild attempt to address one of the three pillars of K-media and viewer criticism of big budget fantasy romance drama The King: Eternal Monarch (script, acting/chemistry, and directing), the production has added a new PD to the already two PD team of PD Baek (Moonlight Drawn by Clouds, Descendants of the Sun) and PD Jung (second string PD in Mr. Sunshine, Search WWW). The new director joining is PD Yoo Je Won who directed Oh My Ghost, Tomorrow With You, A Million Stars Falling From the Sky, Abyss, and most recently Hi Bye, Mama! PD Baek will handle editing and post-production while PD Yoo joins PD Jung in splitting up the primary filming which is still going on. The drama is a 16-episode drama (unlike Mr. Sunshine which was 20-episodes) so it’s midway through airing already but the drama is so expensive I can see this as a Hail Mary to try and salvage the second half.
