Here is a small selection of two must-watch Korean dramas in 2022.


If you like dramas that combine fantasy and romance, these dramas are for you!


Here is the first drama: The King: Eternal Monarch




The King: Eternal Monarch is a drama released in 2020 and available on Netflix.

Broadcast period: from 04/17/2020 to 06/12/2020

Episodes: 16 (about 1 hour)

Genres: Action - Drama - Fantasy - Crime - Romance




In 2020, Lee Gon becomes the king of the Kingdom of Korea, but one day he tries to cross the barrier that separates the two worlds: the Kingdom of Korea and the Republic of Korea. In this new world for him, which is the Republic of Korea, where he is not a king, he meets a detective named Jung Tae Eul. It turns out that this woman is the only person he knew from early childhood, but she does not know him. Lee Gon is traumatized from his early childhood by his father's death, as he was killed by his brother; Uncle Lee Gon.
But will Lee Gon sit back or take revenge on his uncle with the help of Jung Tae Eul?


Main actors:

Lee Min-ho as Lee Gon
Kim Go Eun as Jung Tae Eul
Woo Do Hwan as Jo Yeon
Jung Eun Chae as Goo So Ryong
Lee Jong-jin as Lee Rim




The King: Eternal Monarch is a very interesting drama that is very well done. A very well thought out script, as well as a very effective cast. Lee Min Ho's performance is very realistic, the actor embodied the character of Lee Gon well. An up-to-date and aesthetic love story that is not necessarily the center of drama. A positive point, because the romance does not spoil the very essence of the story. In addition, each episode is full of surprises, ups and downs that the viewer did not expect. Despite these interesting twists and turns, I think you have to be very careful not to get lost at the end.

12 Heart-Fluttering K-Drama Couples We Love Then and Now


February 03, 2022


K-dramas remain as South Korea’s most consumed cultural content export according to the study titled, Global Hallyu Trends 2021 by the Korean Foundation for International Cultural Exchange, and its continued success is attributed to two factors: solid and well-structured storylines; and attractive actors. And we couldn’t agree more. 


Through the years, the Korean entertainment industry has been consistently giving us the most out-of-the-box storylines one could ever imagine. South Korean actors, writers, directors and producers are incredibly talented too, and as proof are several prestigious international awards that they have earned in recent years including the Oscar’s, Golden Globe and Cannes. On top of this, they seem to be exceptionally good at casting actors, and where the romance genre is concerned, they almost always come up with the most swoon-inducing pairs to grace the screens... 


While the list of notable Korean drama couples goes on, we have selected 12 of our all-time favourites in no particular order. Help yourselves and fall in love with them all over again.


9. Lee Gon and Jeong Tae-eul, "The King: Eternal Monarch" (2020)




Lee Min-ho and Kim Go-eun fans, relax! We acknowledge that many of you are rooting for Lee Min-ho-Park Shin-ye, Lee Min-ho-Jun Ji-hyun, Lee Min-ho-Son Ye-jin, Kim Go-eun-Gong Yoo, Kim Go-eun-Ahn Bo-hyun, and so on and so forth. We can't blame you, after all, both are such versatile actors who would look awesome with anyone they are paired with, no matter the age or race. However, it was utterly difficult to move on from Emperor Lee Gon (Lee Min-ho) and Jeong Tae-ul's (Kim Go-Eun) playful and blush-inducing romantic stint in The King: Eternal Monarch, which spans across two parallel worlds.


And if it's true that Kim Go-eun is the first lady to appear on Lee Min-ho's Instagram account, well, that says a lot.
