I have an idea for the 1st poll.  I've been thinking of a couple of others.  I have not watch TKEM since it ended, believe it or not, so I may create the polls on the fly.  It's a little different since we already know the story.

count me in. April 17th is an ideal date. I am all up for it. Is that eastern or pacific times? 

When I participated in the Netflix party, we had people in Asia and the US.  It was a little difficult to accommodate everyone, which is why I suggested perhaps watching according to the region.  Also, you need a laptop (or I guess desktop) to use Netflix party.  We'll figure it out as it gets closer to the date.

King Eternal Monarch, a review of Lee Min Ho's first drama after his military service


Anisa Widiarini




King Eternal Monarch, photo: Special


The Korean Drama (Drakor) The Eternal Monarch King is a drama starring Lee Min Ho. Even though it aired in early 2020, this drama is still in high demand among Drakor fans because it is the first film since Lee Min Ho officially wrapped up his military-bound program (Wamil).

Kim Go Eun is also starring in this film with Lee Min Ho. If you still remember, Kim Go Eun was the main character in the popular goblin movie from 2016 to 2017.

This drama follows Lee Min Ho, who played the Emperor of Korea in the past. While Kim Go Eun plays two characters at once, namely Jung Tae Eul and Luna, who have opposite characters. You can watch this drama on Netflix or other paid streaming services.

Are you interested in the synopsis? Here's a summary of the HOPS for you.

There are two different dimensions to this drama. The story of this drama begins with the assassination of the King of Korea by Lee Lim, his half-brother.

Li Lim tried to grab the Manpasikjok, a bamboo flute passed down by their ancestors. He wants to live forever and hold the world in his hands.

Li Gong, who himself witnessed the murder of his father, managed to get half of the manpashikjok, and Li Lim fled to a parallel world.

In a parallel world, Li Lim met a figure very similar to him. He killed and delivered a man to the Emperor of Korea. So Li Lim, the traitor, was pronounced dead in the world of the Emperor of Korea.

As crown prince, Li Gong must inherit his father's throne and become king at a young age. His first task was to bury his father's body.

Li Gong grows up to be an intelligent and charismatic king. In addition to being a king, he was also known as a brilliant mathematician. However, Lee Gon has his own trauma due to the murder of his father.

Lee then accidentally found a door that led him to another dimension, similar to a parallel world, namely the Republic of Korea. when he arrived, Lee was very attractive because he brought a horse in the middle of the city.

This made him get to know Jung Tae Eul. Nammun Jung Tae Eul, who works as a police officer, is a close friend with him.

At first, he hated Lee Gon for his strange behavior, but later they fell in love. Lee Gon transports Jung Tae Eul to the world of the Emperor of Korea.

In the Korean Empire, Jung Tae Eul meets Jo Young, a palace guard with a face similar to Eun Soeb.

Then a lot of things happened, various riddles surfaced. Lee Gon finally finds out that Lee Lim is still alive.

Li Lim exchanged the lives of people in a parallel world, a bad life for a better life, but people obeyed his orders.

Lee Gon tries to return to the night of treason when his father was killed. With Cho Young's help, he won the battle and killed Lee Lim on the night of the betrayal. However, when fate changed and the world was in balance, Lee Gon and Jung Tae Eul were torn apart.

Lee Gon embarks on a long journey to find Jung Tae Eul. He entered all doors in different universes and found Jung Tae Eul in different conditions.

Hungry Korean drama The King "Chicken & Shochu Beer"
“Chicken” is what Lee Gong is addicted to in modern Korea. There is no sweet and spicy chicken in the Korean Empire, so every time I come to the Republic of Korea, I eat "chicken" and go home. In addition, chicken goes well with a mixture of beer called bomb liquor and shochu.

A scene that thrilled my heart Lee Min Ho, who sadly expresses the weight of pain, loneliness, duty, and fate that Igon must endure after the death of The King Puyoung ...
Lee Min Ho seems to look better in a role with a heavy and deep sadness than a cute looking naive man.

Back-to-the-office style inspiration from your favourite K-dramas


Dressing up for work used to be easy, but now that you've gotten used to loungewear, you may have – gasp! – forgotten how to put together a formal or business appropriate outfit.

Luckily there's plenty of style inspiration to be found in your favourite Korean dramas. Here are the best ensembles to consider for your grand office return.




Following hit drama The King: Eternal Monarch’s release last year, Lee Min-ho quickly became our male fashion obsession. Why don a regular suit when you can rock a Japanese-inspired cropped kimono wrap jacket, such as this one from Dunhill worn by the actor in a scene from the show?

K Drama characters who deserve their own spin off


Some characters simply outshine everyone else! They may or may not be the main characters, but they have such a charming presence on screen that you are drawn to them like a magnet! You can like them or you can hate them, but you cannot ignore them! You certainly cannot deny that they are legendary characters and certainly deserve a spin-off of their own! We cherry-pick 5 K-drama characters who deserve to star in their own spin-offs. 


Woo Do Hwan - The King: Eternal Monarch




It is no denying that the series was far more enjoyable because of Woo Do Hwan's excellent double-role. Woo Do Hwan played the stoic and serious Jo Yeong and also the cute and clumsy Jo Eun Seob. I would watch a drama with just these two characters in them.

Lee Min Ho finally appeared so sexy! Shirtless and wearing a shirt to shoot a blockbuster is far worse than the drama



Lee Min Ho has been very low-key since the filming of "THE KING". It seems that he can rarely be seen in some public places. Not long ago, Lee Min Ho was in the "GQ" Korean version in 2021 An unexpected appearance in his February issue, a set of blockbuster sexy and handsome, made him a long-lost high-profile.








For this blockbuster shoot, Lee Min Ho also tried some rarer styles, such as wearing a printed shirt in the cover photo, brown The color matching and the unique printing make the whole dress look full of details. The whole set of printed dress is worn on the body and matched with a leather belt, which also gives a lot of bright spots in the shape. The shirt buttons are directly unbuttoned. Make Lee Min Ho a rare sexy time.










A white suit, worn directly in a vacuum, and only one button of the suit is buttoned to show Lee Min Ho's chest muscles perfectly, matched with a necklace, and a whole body shape It's even more unique and handsome, and such a dress should be very greasy for many boys, but for Lee Min Ho, it is just right and handsome.

Most of Lee Min Ho's blockbuster looks are still very impressive, showing his handsomeness to the greatest extent, but I don't know why, I always feel that Lee Min Ho, who appeared in the blockbuster, is far away He who is not in the play is more attractive, more impressive and amazing, and even the style seems to be better than the dress in the play.




Take his first work "THE KING" after his retirement. In the play, Lee Min Ho plays the emperor, and all the usual costumes make him look domineering. The supermodel's legs are also even better. Wearing a black velvet top, a double-breasted design and a small high collar, the whole dress is completely distinguished from the neat and capable suit of the suit, showing a full of extravagance, especially It is the gold embroidery of the collar, which simply highlights the gorgeousness of the whole body.




Wearing a riding outfit on the racecourse is equally outstanding. The dark suit and the unique shirt make Lee Min Ho's own domineering fully demonstrated, and at the same time a lot more Relaxing and relaxing, the riding boots on the lower body make his body proportion look much better, and also make his legs more against the sky. Standing next to the white horse is the real Prince Charming!



After traveling to another time and space, Lee Min Ho's dress is more handsome and fashionable nowadays. The long coat and the design of the suit collar highlight The whole clothes are smart and chic, and the loose version and straight lines make Lee Min Ho's whole outfit look much more advanced. With a shirt, it is obviously a very simple item, but it can be worn by him. Effect.






In this play, Lee Min Ho also wears various styles of coats, heavy woolen coats, matching turtleneck sweaters, thick knit textures, simple This increases the overall sense of layering and details, and the loose and heavy coat makes Lee Min Ho look a lot more gentle and warm. Compared with the domineering feeling, it is more like the neighbor's big brother. Kind and perfect.






I have to say that Lee Min Ho in the play is too perfect, because the character's own charm makes him even more handsome than full marks. In the fashion blockbuster, because of the lack of In terms of plot and character, although Lee Min Ho is still the same handsome, he is a little less interesting.
