One of the most famous actors in South Korea Lee Min-ho is officially back as the SBS TV channel has dropped official posters of the main characters in the upcoming k-drama “The King: Eternal Monarch”.
The posters were released several days after a teaser for the TV series leaked online.
The TV-series starring Lee Min-ho and Kim Go-eun, who are some of the most famous and beloved actors in Korea, is scheduled to premiere in mid-April. It will be the first role of Lee Min-ho since “Legend of the Blue Sea” in 2016, which he made before he went to do his mandatory military service in 2017.
The series will tell viewers the story of the love between King Lee Gon (Lee Min-ho) and a detective, Jung Tae-eul (Kim Go-eun), who live in two dimensions - 'The Kingdom of Korea' and 'The Republic of Korea'. The two meet by accident. King Lee Gon tries to close a door between the two worlds which was opened by a divine creature with the help of demons, and detective Jung Tae-eul helps him do it.
The script is written by Kim Eun-sook, who has already wrote numerous hit dramas including: Secret Garden (2010), The Heirs (2013), Descendants of the Sun (2016), Guardian: The Lonely and Great God (2016–2017) and Mr. Sunshine (2018). That's why not only because of the cast, but the series itself, has got k-drama fans hyped and full of excitement.
