[Drama 2020] The King: Eternal Monarch, 더 킹: 영원의 군주

Recommended Posts

If time travel is possible, the saddest to me would not be any death but the fact that they never met each other before. If time travel was possible, could that be a possible ending?

I think Lee Gon is confused on what “scandalous” means   Because sometimes he’s like this::joy:

But then he gets all startled at seeing Tae-eul’s collarbone:

Just finished episode 12. The kdrama gods heard me wanting a faster pace and that’s what we got.

I wish they’d picked up the pace a few episodes earlier. Less of the evil uncle brooding and more of Lee Gon solving the mystery and Tae-eul being a badass would have been nice sooner than later.

My concern is now that we have four episodes left, they’re going to cram everything and may leave a lot of plot holes. I’m curious to see how they’ll resolve everything and reveal the mystery of the parallel world traveling. 

This kdrama really had a lot of potential, Let’s hope the last couple of episodes live up for our expectation.

Get back to western shows chingu, you’re not going to get that here in the kdramaland, especially not on a public channel like sbs :lol:

 

I feel like I’ve just read porn :lol:

 

Maybe we should kick out writer Kim and have you write all the love scenes from now on! This show can use your expertise in writing sensual love making scenes :lol:

 

I’m starting a petition! 

 

My scene exposed no more skin than neck. Definitely well under PG-13 for public tv. It's all internal :blush:

I should add, JY showed his sexy chest, and that's more than the scene I wrote.

I don't think that's possible. I believe LG will always go back in time to meet her again and again even if it ends sadly. His love for her expands through universe and time. No matter how far or how long he has to wait, he will just to even spend a few minutes with her. We can see that in the end of episode 10. Even if he has to turn back time to fix everything he would still choose a future to meet her again. When his future self went back in time, he chose not to kill LR when that itself would've solved all the problems in the world, but he paused when pointing the gun at LR. It can be said LR is the reason for his fate and JTE's fate to cross.

LOL at everyone going gaga analysing every minute detail of what went on in the King’s chambers whereas I’m still shook at Lady Noh’s revelation! I knew something was up when she held onto Kim Sowol’s book of poetry but it never crossed my mind she could be an ‘illegal alien’ too. 
 

She might just be the key to unriddle the mystery of the thunderous scars, as well.

@Heretorant

This is one of my favorite scenes. It’s beautiful, deep and poignant. My interpretation: in this moment, he knows his time left with her will be short lived. Similar to what JTE experienced at the end of episode 10, I believe this was a moment of awakening for him. They’ve always known they must restore balance and close the gates but they’ve both buried their feelings about their inevitable separation and chose to live in the moment. As time stops right before his eyes yet another time though, he knew it was his duty to prevent it from stopping forever. He needs to close the gates. He cries because it hurts. If they are separated by worlds, I assume the pain they’d feel is the same as the pain we feel when someone we love passes away. We have to remember that being separated by worlds means they can no longer contact each other. Their relationship is long distance but 100x worse than that. No, they cannot call each other on the phone and no, they cannot write to each other through mail or the internet. He understands this all too well so he cries because it pains him to know she will be “gone” forever one day, very soon. 
 

What makes this scene even more heart breaking is the coincidence of him realizing that as they are ready to take a photo. This photo will later be the only thing that he has left of her, to remind him of their time together and to remind him that she is real. Yes, it may have been a coincidence but now, this photo is his way of holding onto her. 

And I can’t pay appreciation to the beauty of this scene without speaking about lmh and his phenomenal performance. You can just see he’s trying hard to hold back his tears and he’s nearly shaking as he fails to stop himself from crying. He portrayed LG’s hidden suffering flawlessly as he went from crying to recollecting himself to faking a smile in front of the camera. The way lmh portrayed LG here has so many layers. He made me cry with LG. I feel his deep suffering and it pains me to see him put up a front. I’m a sucker for characters like LG, the type that suffers silently. I feel the feels for him. I want to hug him.

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

All JTE has to do is agree to be his Queen and they do not need to be separated. All he needs to do is to convince her.

Wouldn't that be something if CL Noh was LL's mother?  But that doesn't make sense because LL would know CL Noh was his mother unless someone else raised him.  Did CL Noh say that she has a sister?  If CL Noh isn't LL's mother, then maybe CL's sister?  

 

Why doesn't the lighting bolt (or whatever they're called) hurt LL?  Everyone else seemed to be in pain except LL.  He seems to smile when it happens.

 

This recapper does a good job at recapping ep. 11.  Perhaps people (not us, of course!) who said they don't understand should watch her channel.  I've watched a couple of her videos and I think she's pretty good.

THE KING TAKES HIS QUEEN!

 

By kdrama standards, this is basically porn.

Lee Gon finally decides to throw all consideration out of the window, because it’s been destroying his love life, and demonstrates to Tae Eul what it means to be DOWNRIGHT SCANDALOUS.

 

The neck kiss! It’s so unbelievably sensual and you can see the mix of shock and bliss on TE’s face.

I adore the final pause for two reasons. First, the way Lee Gon looks at Tae Eul with aching longing, when his gaze  lingers on her lips and then he looks back up right into her eyes, caressing her chin, and you can sense there is this wordless communication going on between them, as if

I don't know why he would smile (except that he's just evil), but I think his umbrella is a lightning rod.  :)

 

I also think that cathedral will be part of the solution, since it is in both worlds.

I imagine if more folks were separated by alternate dimensions, there would be more "oops" babies. :lol:  Seems like the reaction just got more intensely visceral the past few eps every time LG and JTE reunited.  JTE straight-up was sobbing in his arms when she'd been waiting for him in the bamboo forest when he unexpectedly showed up on Maximus.  It's no wonder they risked scandal and slept together already. :wub:

Unless yo-yo kid is also their kid or descendant and he's course-correcting as a result of Man In Black's actions saving child!LG.  If Man In Black is LG/JTE's adult son, I want to believe because he's shown up just the one time (as far as we know) that maybe adult son knew what he was doing?  Or it was always meant to happen?  IDK IDK  Thinking about time travel story arcs too in depth hurts my brain. :lol:


The version I'm familiar with is Isis was the one who restored Osiris, at least partially (enough to conceive Horus with the vital parts :lol: ) and after Horus defeats Set, it's when he helps his mother continue the mission to save his father.  

Even not factoring the potential mythological parallels, but JTE is such a fighter and we see her repeatedly fight against some impossible odds and make it, often to save someone she cares about?  I keep thinking over and over JTE (in theory, their adult son as well) may have a very critical role in the story's endgame not just in saving the day, but also saving LG specifically and it's not something I think he'll see coming.  Possibly involving a big reunion (even if signs seem to be pointing to a bittersweet, sad ending at the moment.... I'm sort of hoping KES is playing with us and all the sad tropes we're seeing now are misdirects and she's really intending a surprising happy/uplifting ending.  I'm prepared for the worst, but so hoping KES writes against expectations right now lol).


Hopefully more than just the once! :naughty:

@cpt_falcon I originally typed a longer response, but it got deleted lol. So first JTE jumped on the YOLO ship and now LG just jumped on the YOLO ship too love it !!:wub:

 

So with future JTE and future kid going back to save LG, although it might not happen I could totally see writer KES pulling something like that on us. We all here need a happy ending at this point!! All of us here must really love pain because we have wrote numerous theories, made charts and graphs, made family trees, and analyzed TKEM in terms of literature,  math, science, etc. :tounge_wink:When they were at the church, I was squealing like omg omg he's either going to propose or they're going to elope...BUT NOPE NOPE NOPE like a jab in the heart :heartbreak:

 

I feel like with all the sad tones in this show if we do get a happy ending, it would be all the more rewarding since she literally put us in the underworld all 12 episodes !!! Like how how can she do this to us??? I will never watch another KES drama again if put us through the underworld and in the end just stabbed our souls even more with a sad ending !!! 

 

My 3 Ways of Convincing Myself There's Going to Be a Happy Ending :joy::

 

1) the predominant literature reference in TKEM is Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass which has a happy ending so TKEM will too

2) probability of JTE surviving and having a happy increases as more clues are found in the last 4 episodes

3) this is suppose to be a fantasy or fairy tale so usually those end in happily ever afters 

 

^if none of things work, looks like Im going to be going through the 5 stages of grief when TKEM ends lol.  Never have I ever put this much thought, speculation, and/or even make charts for any drama EVER lol.

 

Yipeeee climbing that beanstalk all night long haha!!!

The King got a slick invitation first time he didn't get it but his fast learner that's enough for him to cover up for the first mistake on the night in the palace and the opportunity he lost. She already told him to take off your clothes he should have paid more attention:lol:

 

The King did come thru here with the scandalous part haha his a fast learner and fulfilled the deed and stepped up to the occasion. We got ourselves softcore and more of it please.
