Here's the photo I mentioned while we were watching Ep. 1. It shows what looks like a long, deep scar running down LMH"s right arm. That near-fatal auto accident he was in hit him on the right side, so that might be where he got it. I also read that he broke an arm when he was a boy, but this scar would have had to be from a very, very bad break. Go glad he came through it all.

 

Thanks for sharing the photo.

It could just be a combination of makeup, sweat, sunshine, and photo quality.

I've never noticed a scar on his arm.

An Honest Review Of 'The King: Eternal Monarch'

 

Some people want a light and enjoyable escape from the real world—and this show definitely is not it...

 

by JACINDA A. LOPEZ | Jun 22, 2020

 

the-king-eternal-monarch-honest-review-1

 

What My Friend Thinks:


"In the beginning, I was skeptical about the drama because I wasn't a fan of the fantasy genre when it comes to my K-dramas. But with each episode having unexpected twists and turns, I found myself getting hooked more and more. Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Gun did good jobs but Woo Do Hwan playing both the stoic Young and the playful Eun Seob was definitely my favorite. I find myself crushing on Jung Eun Chae too! I'm sad I didn't get to see a royal wedding (I was really looking forward to it), but Gon crossing universes just to find Tae Eul again is good enough for me." —Rap

 

What I Think:


I came into watching The King: Eternal Monarch being a fan of neither Lee Min Ho nor Kim Go Eun, and I think that really worked in my favor in appreciating the drama without expecting too much. I grew up reading fantasy novels so the genre has a special place in my heart, but I never opened myself up to watching fantasy K-dramas until The King. Watching the first episode kept me at the edge of my seat and I was utterly blown away by the gripping storyline and the ace cinematography, but what I wasn't so sure of was the two leads. I knew they were accomplished actors in their own right, but something seemed to be off about the way their characters' arcs came together. Was it the lack of chemistry between the actors? Or the way their characters were written? I couldn't put my finger on what exactly was bugging me. But unlike a lot of other people I know who dropped the drama after a few eps, I wanted to trudge on and give them a chance. And I am so, so glad I did! What made no sense in the first half of the drama was explained in the second half—and this doesn't just apply to the two leads but also goes for small yet significant details scattered all throughout the drama. It was like a huge puzzle that I needed to solve with me theorizing and dissecting each episode. I understand why this drama isn't for everyone. Some people want a light and enjoyable escape from the real world—and this show definitely is not it. It wasn't like your regular 'ol rom-com drama that followed "the formula" where you could easily predict what happens next. No. The King kept me guessing until the very last episode. And I absolutely LOVED the experience.

 

For sure The King had its flaws: the overkill in sponsored products (I found them endearing at first but eventually rolled my eyes at every appearance of those damned LED face masks!) and the plot holes and rushed story arcs (which I have to attribute to the story being limited by the 16-episode format—The King needed MORE episodes!). But, for me, I can overlook these because the drama was smart and ambitious. It's commendable that screenwriter Kim Eun Sook aspired to attract a wider audience by choosing to veer away from tried and tested drama tropes.

 

When I finished the drama, I found myself becoming a fan of the lead actors: Lee Min Ho, who finally broke from his pretty boy acting and matured into an intelligent actor with gravitas; and Kim Go Eun, who could play any role in the world and make it her own! But just like most The King fans, it was a joy to watch Woo Do Hwan shine brighter than anyone in the drama. Him playing the two polarizing roles of Jo Young and Eun Seob was like watching two totally different actors on screen. He just has this special charm and charisma and warmth and, god, does he deserve to be the leading man in his next drama!

 

Who I'd Recommend It To:


Fans of fantasy and sci-fi!
Fans of Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun—you must not miss this!
People who want a break from the regular K-drama formula.
Those who want to use their ~minds~ while watching the drama.
Everyone who hasn't seen Woo Do Hwan on screen.

Thanks for the poll, @CarolynH and @Lmangla!

 

The King's cinematography is really impressive. It's on par with high-budget Hollywood films.

 

Remember this scene at the salt farm? The houses and mountains having some semblance with the hands of a clock is a brilliant interpretation of the passing of time. To go even deeper, the reflection seem to signify the passing of time between the parallel worlds.

Of course, it's a joy to see clingy Maximus! :D I wonder if he still misses LMH

I voted for the set-up especially the opening scene.  It's the type of beginning I enjoy; grabs you right from the start with the murder of the King.   As for side characters, I voted for Maximus of course, part of one of my ships and Lee Lim.  I really thought that actor was very good in the part.

(VOH) - For movie lovers to watch movies not only for entertainment but also for men. In addition to the content of the film, the actors are also the "content" that many are interested in.

 

1. The Immortal King - Lee Min Ho

 

EzqiCrDWYAoxh3K?format=jpg&name=900x900

 

As soon as the first images of Lee Min Ho appeared in "The Immortal King," the actor quickly became a hot topic on social media. Although he knows that Lee Min Ho has always ranked among the top handsomest actors in Korea, his beauty has multiplied in "The Immortal King". With super-cool moments in military uniform showing off his "aristocratic" spirit, Lee Min Ho broke the hearts of several sisters..
