Thank you @gtLmh0622 - the Emperor sounds like a role LMH can really get his teeth into- a very complex character.

I saw a post on IG from one of Lee Min Ho Fan account Stating "According to the increase in the cost in Film production, we are facing a lack of budget for advertising. Which is why the drama will start on 9 december."

 

I'm not sure where is the real source for this statement. I have screenshot the picture along with the caption, but couldn't load it here.

Anybody can confirm on this news? I have been wondering for the lack of news, Such as Script reading pictures/Video. And considering of the A-list actors who are in this productions, the writer, the PD. And how this Drama is highly anticipated, i see very little news/advertising. And The Actors involve also not posting much.

 

I don't know if this is true, or the lack of advertising due to the Production company keeping things in secret until they are ready to release the Teaser.

 

Would hate to see this drama fail because of budget, since it is highly anticipated and is a comeback Drama for both Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun.

Google translation :

 

Advertising revenues are low due to a surge in production costs. 

Not only romantic comedy but also thriller, fantasy, and historical genres, the genre of Korean Wave stars await their return. Who is the main character that will break the jackpot? 

 

And lots of filming dramas were mentioned in the news, I don't know if you were saying this news, but the news didn't report that "The King" would start on December. 

 

 

 

I'm a fan of Yoxx Ah
I opened my eyes with Lee Min Ho.  
Very handsome
He's so slim and the face is so small

✴Flashing✴
Where does the light shine when there's no reflector?
Not a real human being
It was the appearance that God created in the realm of the gods

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

By the way, I just found a post on Weibo that ginkgo is the only living species in the division Ginkgophyta, all others being extinct.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ginkgo_biloba

 

So, will the ginkgo tree be a metaphor for the loneliness of Emperor Lee Gon ?

Google translation :

'The King' Lee Min-ho, 'All-around sportsman'

 

0000776967_001_20191116093102095.jpg?typ

 

 
Actor Lee Min-ho predicts as good as a 'sportsman' for his new work.

Lee Min-ho will use the motor nerve in the SBS drama “The King: The Lord of Eternity” (The King), which will be broadcast in April next year, to show more dynamic appearance than before. Training for this purpose has been captured by some fans recently, which is stimulating curiosity.

In the drama of fantasy genre, Lee Min Ho played the role of Lee Gon, the fourth emperor of the Korean Empire. The production team describes the Igon character as 'The Prince of White Horse in the middle of Gwanghwamun'.

Lee Min-ho, who chose “The King” as his return after completing his military service on April 25 this year, actually rode a white horse at Goksan Mungwang Reservoir in Chungcheongbuk-do at the end of October, attracting the attention of tourists around him. At the scene where the ginkgo tree road in yellow is in full bloom, he finished shooting against the backdrop of scattering ginkgo leaves.

Recently, it also appeared in the rowing stadium of Misari Racing Park in Hanam, Gyeonggi-do.

Lee Min Ho's lively scene of rowing and wearing a sleeveless costume despite the chilly weather suddenly came. In addition, through the drama, such as challenging a variety of things that have been saved. Gaps are also being guided by experts in the sport.

'The King', a pre-production method that completes the filming before the broadcast, is also attracting much attention as a new work by artist Eun-Sook Kim who wrote tvN 'Dokkaebi' and 'Mr. Sunshine'. It is a fantasy romance that transcends the era of the imperial Korean Empire, which has moved to 2020, in cooperation with the present detective (Kim Go-eun).

SBS Star

Lee Minho to Star in a Drama Written by Writer Who Wrote 'Guardian'·'The Descendants of the Sun'

 


Unfortunately, I don't like this writer... Goblin wasn't bad (it had an awesome pilot and a lot of very funny scenes), but The Heirs's script was risible, as well as DOTS' one. I consider both The Heirs and DOTS to be wasted chances: the two dramas hit the jackpot for many different reasons, including the high budget and the filming locations, but many scenes were so absurd they seemed a parody of themselves.  

Let's hope this drama won't be badly thought and written... Kim Eun Sook is better at writing fantasy than other genres, so I'll cross my fingers and hope that she won't botch the script this time.

I can’t sleep (hopefully what I’m writing makes sense lol) so I did some intel on whether Netflix is picking up the King. There’s a list of upcoming shows late 2019 and early 2020, on Netflix but The King is not on the list.  :grimace:.  I wonder how early Viki and Netflix license the dramas?  I have Viki basic but I’m sure I would need to upgrade to watch the King.  I also wonder if that March 2020 is a solid date.  If it’s preproduced, there sure isn’t a lot of lead time between when I’d think filming would end (January) and the start of the drama.  Just my rambling lol.

 

I have a Netflix account and I'll fill in the request form for this drama. Do the same!

 

That brick house is (according to previous spoilers) Detective Jung's home... Have you noticed the two sleek sports cars parked in front of it? Is the King visiting her or something? I'm confused...

20191120~20191122, three days diary for visiting filming location of "The King".
Being a fan of Lee Min Ho, the accurate answer is "worthy".

 

Day 1.

When I just arrived the filming location, oppa walked slowly toward me, my eyes caught him among a group of people immediately, although it is a familiar face, but I still sighed "how come there is a such good looking man in the world."

 

Waved to him, he replied you a shy smile, called him, he answered "nei", sweet but like a prince. He had very good relationship with the whole team, heard his special laughter very often.
 

The most heart fluttering moment. When the filming was completed, many fans stood along two sides of the street under ginkgo trees. He walked toward us and chatting with his team members, and then he replied our enthusiasm, stared each of us. I was standing at the end of the line, I waved to him and called him oppa, he walked to me with bodyguards and stretched out his hand toward me, I was shocked and hurried to hold his hand and stammered out 감사합니다 (thank you), he smiled and got on his car, all other fans shouted "Wawoo !!" God knows how I felt at that time, I only knew the sound like thousand of bees in my brain and my heart was attacked.........being a fan of Lee Min Ho, the accurate answer is "worthy".

 

Day 2.

The team members imitated Minoz to shout "Wawoo" and applauded him, he was shy but laughed and capered to the scene.
Lots of fans got handshakes with Minho, me too. Oppa is very very kind to his fans.

 

Day 3.

There are fences and walls at the filming location, oppa's car was at the back door. After the rest time, only few steps from his car returned to the scene, but every time our heartwarming oppa chose to the far way from the front door and walked slowly that we could follow him. He used his own way to feedback to us.

When the filming was at the yard, we couldn't see him thoroughly because there were blocks. But when the filming stopped, he walked out a while that we could see him at 360 degrees.

 

 

I can't describe everything, but every moment is cherish when I remember those days. His everything is deeply in my head and I can love him more thousand years. It's very hard for visiting the filming location, but because of Lee Min Ho, everything became wonderful and worthy.
