What We Are Watching Today: ‘The King: Eternal Monarch’

 

2210996-1257646449.png?itok=WfywGMgY

 

In a world of mainstream K-dramas filled with cliches and reoccurring themes, “The King: Eternal Monarch” stands unique and absolutely mind-blowing.


The romantic-fantasy series has the Korean megastar Lee Min-Ho as the king, Lee Gon, and Kim Go-eun as strong and fierce Jeong Tae Eul, the main love interest and a detective in Korea.

 

The theme of the show is parallel universes crossing paths. The countries featured are the kingdom of Corea and the Republic of Korea, the two characters belonging to different universes. The king is shown to be loved by all around him and is a mathematician and just ruler.

 

The drama uses real time-traveling theories and concepts, has an intriguing Korean twist, and a standout performance by Woo Do-Hwan who plays a dual role as the king’s bodyguard in both worlds.

See what's next: Netflix reshapes Korean TV industry trends

 

eefee9ac70c04b9c9bfafc02a2c505bc.jpg

 

While the Korean TV drama industry is witnessing a rapid change in its success formula ― shifting its emphasis from the domestic scene to the global market ― streaming giant Netflix is playing a major role, offering lucrative deals and a doorway to international traction that local production studios cannot resist.

And local viewership is no longer a key metric.
 

Star-studded TV series "The King: Eternal Monarch," which ended with a disappointing viewership rating of 8 percent, is the most recent example as it was able to reach its break-even point even before going to air.

The 32 billion won ($26.8 million) budget series reportedly recouped its total production cost from the broadcast deal with the SBS network and the overseas licensing agreement with Netflix, relieving pressure on the viewership rating in Korea.

"Netflix approaches with undeniably good deals, so probably most of the production studios want to work with the company," a local production company official told The Korea Times, asking not to be named.

 

Korean media outfit CJ ENM and its subsidiary Studio Dragon even inked a three-year production and distribution agreement with Netflix to provide over 20 series and produce original series starting this year.

 

"Netflix values the power of storytelling as we believe it appeals beyond borders and across genres," Netflix told The Korea Times. "So, we intend to continue to deliver Korea's high-quality storytelling to our audiences worldwide."

 

And in doing so, the platform has become the most sought-after company to work with among local production companies.

The production company official said Netflix's generous payments offer significant relief for the production.

"When we produce a series, making the budget is always hard for many reasons, especially with a low viewership rating," the official said. "So when Netflix purchases the license, it means we can just get on track with the production."

Thanks to Netflix, the production studios now have another source of earnings, rather than solely relying on the networks. This frees the studios from tension with the local broadcasters and changes the dynamic of TV productions, says drama critic Yun Suk-jin, who is also a Korean literature professor at Chungbuk National University.

"The networks always dominated the production process as they are the ones assigning the timeslot," Yun said.

He added that this gave broadcasters the power to alter details, storylines, or even the concept of a series. "Dramas would only go into production if proposals were approved by the network, so (production companies) had limitations as they had no choice but to accept the network's demands," he explained.

This freedom from the pressures of the networks also creates better-quality dramas, according to the professor.

He said that since the networks cover only a portion of the production cost, ad revenue used to be another primary funding source for the studios.

"Especially, small productions will put in an excessive amount of product placement to make a profit, which will downgrade the quality of the series," Yun said.

 

Another factor that makes Netflix popular is worldwide streaming. This offers a series the chance to gain international traction and shortens the tedious export process.

"Being a global streaming giant has a substantial advantage in the market," pop culture critic Kim Hern-sik said, adding that it opens up a new model for content exports.

"In the past, the network or production company went 'door-to-door' with each overseas network to export a TV series," he said. "So it would take years and sometimes would fall apart along the way, which would just be a waste of time and money."

As Netflix is available in over 190 countries, the network can now utilize it to appeal to other markets, which will have a "great impact on possible deals for remakes overseas."

 

Spoiler

However, as the platform takes Korea by storm, its growing presence is also raising some concerns of excessive control over the local content market.

"Netflix receives so many content proposals, so they get to review and select which to work on and turn down," the production company official said.

The deep-pocketed company is likely to become the dominant source that monitors and selects the content available to audiences, shaping the market.

Netflix has also been accused of "freeloading" in Korea's OTT (over-the-top) ecosystem for refusing to pay local telecom companies for network service use in Korea. This is seen as an unfair advantage as other local streaming services ― such as Seezn, Wavve and Watcha ― are required to pay.

 

Meanwhile, Studio Dragon is seeking to go beyond Netflix to secure its foothold in the global market. The company launched a U.S. branch earlier this year, becoming the first Korean production company to do so.

It inked a co-production partnership deal with the American production company Skydance in February, announcing their first project, a U.S. remake of "Hotel Del Luna."

"With the success of 'Hotel Del Luna,' we hope to leap forward in becoming a global premium drama studio," Studio Dragon said.

I find it curious that TKEM had less articles  than Kkondae Intern or Hot Stove League or Hospital List or Dr Romantic 2. I wonder why. It did so well overseas.

 

From all the news you posted, I notice that Doctor dramas do very well in SK. Perhaps LMH should be a doctor next.

Korea is the content market that Netflix has focused on as it has turned to Asia through the saturated markets of the U.S. and Europe. 

Netflix took its first step toward developing Korean content in 2017 by producing director Bong Joon-ho's "Okja." The number of Korean content jumped to 325 in May, a five-fold increase in three years.


The increased content is almost dominating the Asian market. Across Asia, including Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines, Vietnam and Thailand, as of July, "The King," etc. were ranked among the top six. Even in Japan, which has a strong anti-Korean Wave atmosphere, Korean dramas ranked first to third in the Japanese Netflix rankings on July 1.

"As many people in the Asian continent enjoy Korean content and Korea has high-quality storytelling capabilities, Korea's role in Asia is important," said Ted Surandos, chief content officer at Netflix, in Singapore in 2018. "We will invest a lot in developing Korean content."

"The King: Eternal Monarch” Makes It to Top 10 Most Popular TV Shows in 28 Countries on Netflix

 

 

 

When Lee Min Ho was enlisted in the military, his heartbroken fans had to wait for almost two years for his return. And when he was finally released from the military, he landed on his first project, "The King: Eternal Monarch," which became one of the most highly-anticipated dramas of 2020.

Unfortunately, though, in his home country, his drama was not that welcomed by many. Even though he was partnered with Kim Go Eun, one of the top actresses in Korea, it did not suffice enough viewers to make it a top-rated series. When articles were written regarding the poor ratings of TKEM, fans from other countries were baffled.

Even screenwriter Kim Eun Sook was put in the hot heat, with Korean netizens thinking it's the end of her career. We all know that she is the brains of several of the most-loved K-dramas, such as "The Heirs," "Descendants of the Sun," and "Guardian: The Lonely and Great God also known as Goblin."

But with a great surprise, the drama was among the top 10 most-watched shows in several countries. 

The following data was provided by Flixpatrol, where it monitored daily popular content on Netflix platform. Here some countries coupled with the highest rank reached by "The King: Eternal Monarch."

The data shown were gathered from the period between April 19 to July 30. No wonder, "The King: Eternal Monarch" is still considered the most popular TV show worldwide. This shows the collective popularity of the stellar cast and Lee Min Ho's prominence. 

TKEM remained on the top spot for several weeks on Netflix in other countries. 

Further, because of this drama, Woo Do Hwan's career stepped up and proved he can steal the show. Viewers praised his versatility, and he had even been lined up to star for an upcoming show. However, he had to enlist.  

Given that TKEM is a considerable success, fans are anticipating what the cast members' next projects would be.

Recently, the most popular Netflix video content in Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines and Malaysia is by far the Korean drama.
