Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun starred in The King: Eternal Monarch, but before that happened the actress was already a fan of one of the actor's characters.


With Lee Min Ho's amazing track record in dramas, you probably have a favorite character of this actor. Kim Go Eun also has it and revealed it in front of the cameras.


Currently we can see Lee Min Ho in the Pachinko episodes, but before the Apple TV+ series, his most recent project was The King: Eternal Monarch where he joined forces with Kim Go Eun to tell the story that united two different realities.


They not only thrilled us in every episode of the K-Drama but also made hearts beat faster with their great behind-the-scenes chemistry and interviews, where smiles and good cheer were never lacking.


However, in some of these meetings with the media, some peculiar confessions were also made known by these actors, one of them occurred when the actress revealed which of Lee Min Ho 's characters left mark on her memory since she saw him onscreen.




In an interview that the main couple of The King: Eternal Monarch conducted for SBS cameras, both stars answered questions about the first impressions they had of each other when they met on the project and what it was like to work together. The actress gave an adorable confession about her admiration for her partner's work.


Kim Go Eun couldn't help but smile as she confessed that she was a big fan of Kim Tan. That is the role that Lee Min Ho played in the drama The Heirs. They both laughed at this comment and the girl even referred to him by name of the character to add more fun to the moment.




In the 2013 drama, Lee Min Ho brought his latest character to life as a student and he certainly left a big impression. In this story he plays the illegitimate son of a powerful family who was even sent out of the country, but returns to face his fate. The role of this Korean actor showed many facets, from stages of confidence and independence, sweetness and romance, rebelliousness due to a broken heart, and more, so it is certainly a K-Drama that we can watch again and again.

Top 10 K-dramas with Gorgeous Styling & Costumes


An unbelievable amount of effort goes into creating the perfect K-Drama. From the plot to the characters, cinematography to OSTs, and even the tiniest details need equal attention. One such element that truly enhances the immersion of a K-Drama is its fashion. Here are my picks for the top 10 K-Dramas with the most iconic styling and costumes.




"The King: Eternal Monarch"


Much like the name suggests, "The King: Eternal Monarch" features fashion fit for royalty. The long coats, crisp shirts and cozy cardigans on Lee Gon (played by Lee Min-ho) alongside the dignified formal dresses and striking high heels on Goo Seo-ryeong (played by Jung Eun-chae) give us a taste of regency at its finest.

When two male characters from K-Dramas have a great friendship, the moments of bromance make their way into the story. Today we will tell you about some Asian series with this element in their episodes.


In dramas we find all kinds of stories and although some of them are not the central line of the plot, they add that which makes us love each of the episodes. A case that reflects what we have just mentioned is that of secondary couples, but it also occurs with bromances In Korean dramas a bromance refers to the friendship that two men share that leads to them having funny or even sweet moments. It is merely a friendly relationship but with gestures of appreciation and joy that never go unnoticed.


The King: Eternal Monarch

Year: 2020

10 Compelling K-Dramas You Can Binge on Netflix


There’s no doubt that Netflix’s megahit Squid Game changed the way people around the world viewed South Korean shows—it may have even introduced you to the term “K-Drama.” While Netflix has confirmed that its dystopian drama will return for season two, it’s going to take a while before fans will see the Red Light, Green Light doll again.


If you’re left wanting more, don’t be disappointed: There are plenty more addictive and compelling K-Dramas out there just waiting to be seen! Over the last two years, I’ve fallen down a K-Drama rabbit hole, and I’ve found myself so delighted that I never came out. In fact, I’m still there, so to speak, exploring and discovering cool shows with unique premises I haven’t seen in many other places.


I’m excited to share a few of my entertainment discoveries with all of you in the genres of sci-fi, tech, and fantasy to start you on your K-Drama journey. Before we start, it’s important I give you a heads up: Don’t judge a K-Drama by its title, no matter what your instincts tell you. You might miss out on some very good shows! (Been there, done that, sad experience.)


The King: Eternal Monarch 

I wasn’t quite sure if I would like The King: Eternal Monarch when I first started watching it, mainly because I really wasn’t sure where it wanted to go at first. However, like the other K-Dramas on this list, it won me over. In The King: Eternal Monarch, we encounter two different Koreas in parallel worlds. One is a republic, or the Korea we know nowadays, while the other is the Kingdom of Corea, which is governed by a monarch.


Lee Gon, the king of Corea, one day discovers a door into the alternate Republic of Korea. He also learns that his uncle, Lee Lim, who murdered Gon’s father, the previous king, is hiding out in the other world. While on his adventure, Gon meets Jeong Tae-eul, a police detective whose badge he found on the day his uncle murdered his father. The King: Eternal Monarch has the classic elements of fantasy, including a white horse, romance, a kingdom, and an evil uncle. Add that to its great and funny characters and you’re in for a good ride.

Time has passed and the Korean Empire in 2019. Crown Prince Gong (Lee Min Ho), who has become the emperor's throne, also discovers the gate leading to the Republic of Korea while pursuing the invaders.


In this world, there is a woman, Taeul (Kim Go Eun), who appears on an ID card left at the site of the uprising...

The flexibility and brilliant work of the actors are combined with a complex and fantastic picture of the world, in which the parallel world and time travel are intertwined.


Because Lee Min Ho's sophisticated looks and charisma make him attractive no matter what clothes he wears, such as military uniforms, hanbok, and horseback riding, Kim Go Eun and Woo Do Hwan have the ability to act freely. embodies two different facial expressions.


The popularity is said to have been split between Korean and Japanese broadcasts, but it goes without saying that it was an impressive drama with amazing visuals for the lead.


And at the same time, when the girl's heart is captured by a hot hug, forehead kiss, neck kiss, and Lee Min Ho's angry chest gesture, this is a work that was impressed by the tears shed by the Gong and Tae Eul couple.
