Everything about The King: Eternal Monarch felt like a twilight zone version of a Kim Eun Sook penned drama, like everything was off kilter and none in a good way. One sad aspect was the total wasted use of second female lead Jung Eun Chae, normally all KES dramas propel the second female lead to stardom but this one took her career back a step in terms of challenging her in any way. In my mind she’s still in her jeans and jacket searching for malevolent ghosts in The Guest. Thankfully she does have her next project picked out and this one is much less likely to fail for being cheesy or nonsensical – she will join the large cast of the upcoming Apple TV adaptation of the Korean-American novelist book Pachinko which will reunite her with Lee Min Ho as he’s also in the cast. Smart pick for her and she also picked a great pictorial in this fall themed romp through and apple orchard and cherry farm, love the hues and outfits.
