What Lee Min Ho Thinks About Working With Kim Go Eun in ‘The King: Eternal Monarch’

He shares his thoughts from the latest press conference about the newest Netflix Kdrama series

One of the most-anticipated Korean series on Netflix is The King: Eternal Monarch, and the pilot episode surely did not disappoint. This fantasy romance tells of two parallel universes, one in which Korea is a constitutional monarchy, hence the Kingdom of Corea, and the other, is similar to present day Korea. In this series, Lee Min Ho plays the role of Emperor Lee Gon, while Kim Go Eun takes on the role of detective Jung Tae Eul.
