It looks like the upcoming Korean drama The King: The Eternal Monarch starring Lee Min Ho (Legend of the Blue Sea) and Kim Go Eun (Goblin: The Lonely and Great God) has found a network! It is set to air on SBS in the first half of 2020.
Hit writer Kim Eun Sook’s last couple of dramas, Mr. Sunshine and Goblin: The Great and Lonely God, aired on tvN, so I thought that might be where this new one would land, especially considering how big budget her dramas are. But it looks like she’s returning to the public networks this time around. I’m sure it will still have an ample budget and be plenty grand though.
The King: The Eternal Monarch is about parallel worlds with one being the Empire of Korea and the other the Republic of Korea. The emperor (Lee Min Ho) of the Korean Empire teams up with a detective (Kim Go Eun) from the Republic of Korea to try and close the door between the worlds.
