I do get the fans of The King: Eternal Monarch saying the drama has a lot of interesting elements and mysteries to unpack, that’s not untrue except the delivery is terrible and there hasn’t been any unpacking to properly build upon this grand world building. One mystery I am curious is who Luna is, like her full backstory and what her role in this whole Evil Uncle plot to take over the crown (or gain eternal life, who knows?) is. I also like her wayyyyyy more than Jung Tae Eul, both played by Kim Go Eun but as Luna she shows personality and edges that weepy suddenly romance addled Tae Eul has none of. Jung Eun Chae‘s two dopplegangers, on the other hand, I don’t like power hungry ladder climbing prime minister so by default the normal girl version of her who is finally showing up in episode 11 piques my interest. The duality of the characters has only been fully mine so far with Woo Do Hwan hence he’s rightfully gotten so much positive attention in the last three episodes after doing nothing in the beginning. Let’s hope the doppleganger fest will bring a better episode 11.
