Now that we finally have a firm date, I can subscribe to Netflix!  How does Netflix work?  Is it subbed by the next day?  If I stop in the middle of the drama, will the place where I stopped be held or would I need to figure out where I left off?  will The King eventually be deleted?

The drama would air on Netflix few hours after its original air, South Korea time. Basically you enter your info and your payment info and you are set, they will automatically charge your card monthly. And yes, you can paused the show since it’s air few hours after it’s originally airing time. 

Idknif the king would be deleted or not, there shows that have come and go on Netflix, but it really depends, boys over flower has been on netflix for years now. Maybe depends on the popularity? And even if the king would be deleted from Netflix, I don’t see it happen after a a couple of years.

“The King: Eternal Monarch” Starring Lee Min Ho & Kim Go Eun Secures Premiere Date

Wielding immense anticipation from K-Drama fans, The King: Eternal Monarch is finally set for a Spring airdate

Garnering raves after releasing its teaser video recently, the Kim Eun Sook drama hypes the excitement by slating its official broadcast schedule.

On February 29, star writer Kim Eun Sook announced that the eagerly-awaited fantasy-romance drama will begin in April 2020. No specified date has been revealed yet.

Previously, SBS unveiled a teaser featuring Lee Min Ho to the delight of its anticipating fans. The quick video trailer introduces the character of the actor with a peerless gaze and enigmatic aura.

Powerhouse Cast & Creative Team

Reuniting with the esteemed writer, both lead stars of the series have worked with Kim Eun Sook before. Lee Min Ho starred in youth romance drama, The Inheritors. Meanwhile Kim Go Eun spreed to huge popularity with her remarkable portrayal in Goblin.

 

Notably, writer Kim has produced acclaimed and top-rating series including: Mr. Sunshine, A Gentleman’s Dignity, City Hall and Lovers in Paris.

Interestingly, Kim is also set to collaborate again with PD Baek Sang Hoon. They worked together in runaway hit romance series – Descendants of the Sun. Director Baek includes Love in the Moonlight, Who are You: School 2015 and Secret Love to his portfolio.

 

Billed to be one of the highly-anticipated dramas of 2020, The King: Eternal Monarch boasts an impressive cast lineup. Aside from its main leads, Woo Do Hwan (Tempted) and Jung Eun Chae (The Guest) are expected to provide vibrancy to the story through their characters.

Based on the initial story sketch, the series features two settings following its parallel universe concept. It is also billed to showcase romantic moments for the main leads.

Set to play dual roles, Lee Min Ho suits up as Korean emperor. He is trying to close the dimension to ward off the villain intent to wreak havoc in the kingdom he leads. His other character in the parallel world struggles to protect the people he loves from the projected antagonist.

 

Following Lee Min Ho’s dual portrayal, the same challenge will be tackled by Kim Go Eun. She challenges contrasting characters in the two parallel words. In Korean empire she portrays criminal Luna. Meanwhile, in the Republic of Korea world, she is Jung Tae Eul, a detective who will team up with Lee Min Ho’s character Lee Gon.

HI @The.Lannister!  

What do the mathematical equations on the chalkboard represent in the teaser?  I think, was it LMH, who described Lee Gon as a little weird?

In the trailer, he said that the Korean Empire, not Joseon or Goryeo. It looks like it is based on modern day kingdom (correct me if I'm wrong). 

Or we don't know it yet, probably some mixed modern days with sageuk like LOTBS, MLFTS or even Goblin.

I'm just so excited anyway.

It will be a modern day Korea as an empire. I think that’s the alternate world.
