Li Ming plans to kill at night, and when the atmosphere is very quiet, he is helped by his followers, all dressed in black.

Li Lim tried to take Manpasikjok away from the King of Korea and his son that night when a very fierce battle began, but since the king was alone, he died immediately.

Apparently, at that moment Mangasikjok split into two parts: one part was taken by Li Lim, and then he escaped, and the other was taken by Crown Prince Li Gon, who saw how Li Lim killed his father.

At that moment, he found a lanyard for a police card with the name Jung Tae Eul.

Later, the king's son, Lee Gon Manpasikjok, discovered that his father's property was capable of opening doors to parallel worlds.

After the king died that night with a very heavy heart, Li Gong's fate became the king of Korea at a young age when he held Manpasikjok without knowing his power as the king's inheritance.

The story continues, Li Gong grows up to be an intelligent, handsome and charismatic king and is known as a brilliant mathematician.

One day, he chased something related to Jung Tae Eul's lace, which he continued to chase.

He also ran into the forest and found a door that is called the door of the parallel world. Unexpectedly and no one knew about it, Lee Gon apparently entered the Republic of Korea in a parallel world and found the figure of Jung Tae Eul.

On his journey through a parallel world, he discovered many things different from what was in his kingdom. Of course, this surprised him and interested him very much.

So how will Lee Gong and Jung Tae Eul's story continue? Will he meet Li Lim who killed his father?

For those of you who love Korean dramas, or maybe you like Lee Min Ho's Lee Gon figure, you can watch the movie "King Eternal Monarch" at home with your family.

Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun: The King: Eternal Monarch book ending touches fans


In case there was any doubt about the end of The King: Eternal Monarch, the novel confirms the fate of Tae Eul and Lee Gon. 

The novel version of the drama 'The king: eternal monarch' confirms the vows that the characters Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun exchanged.

It has been more than a year since the Korean drama The king: eternal monarch arrived to show a love story through parallel worlds. Despite the elapsed time, fans of the couple played by Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun couldn't help their excitement with a snippet of the story that went viral.

After the television series culminated on SBS and Netflix , the producers released a two-volume novel version. These books add more details to the adventures of King Lee Gon and Detective Jung Tae Eul , who fall in love while investigating a portal that connects their worlds.

Although it has only been published in Korean, foreign fans of the K-drama have translated the story from fragment to fragment.

The king eternal monarch. Story created by Kim Eun Sook adapted to novel by RHK publishing house. 




Recently, the narration at the end of the book went viral on social media, especially in Lee Min Ho's fan community on Facebook . What was written in this version confirmed that Lee Gon and Jung Tae Eul's last words at the close of the drama carried the weight of a betrothal.

At the end of episode 16 of The king: eternal monarch , the protagonists managed to overcome in their own way what could leave them separated on both sides of the portal. This is how they meet again every weekend and promise each other exclusivity.


Translation of the book by @ 01thebetween on Twitter

Tae-Eul and Gon held hands tightly and walked an old street from 1960, when they weren't even born. In the crowded streets there were groups of students in uniform and posters advertising a movie at the cinema.

Tae Eul wore a white dress with black dots and Lee Gon a cream-colored suit. Together, the two of them fit in perfectly wherever they went. The two reverently made vows to each other, as a declaration of marriage.


No matter what door opens ahead in our lives.

Even if our moments together make us sad at times.

My love, please don't exhaust yourself.

This is how we have decided to love the destiny that chose us.

Today, only today and forever.




If you want to recommend The King: Eternal Monarch to a friend or rewatch the series that brought Lee Min Ho back after his military service , Netflix is the official platform that presents its full 16 chapters.


In addition to the original language version, Netflix added the Latin Spanish dubbing so that other audiences can enjoy the romance and fantasy story.
