Lee Gon updated his IG just in time when The King started.

 

Btw, AQ works perfectly tonight. Hoping the same for tomorrow.

Use AQ on cellphone, it can't be worked on my computer.

 

Thank you, actually it worked beautifully on my computer after I had the flash drive unblocked!

Apparently, Netflix won't distribute this drama in my country, Italy. There's no trace of it on the platform... :bawling: 

Do some of you have the same problem?

Thoughts after episode 1:

 

1) how did JTE save the king when she was 5 at the time. I’m certain it is JTE and not Luna. Writer Kim, you have some explaining to do. I’m hoping something good is in store. It’s a fantasy after all so anything can happen. Would it be too much to do parallel worlds and time travel at the same time? Yes! Lol. 

*edit* I missed the first 5 minutes of the show which apparently revealed more than I thought. An interesting opening! A flash forward to the future and we’re about to see all that leads up to that moment. 

 

2) one too many coincidences. I could have lived without the first one. I thought the second one was appropriate because a handsome man riding into town with a horse would stop any traffic! And yes, I’m going to keep referring to him as a handsome man. 
3) he who breaks the seal must close it. Excuse me while I run away with my imagination. The scar on Lee Gon’s neck has something to do with closing the seal. Once they succeed at mending the tear, all memories between the two crossing worlds will cease to exist. All order will be restored. 
 

Things that stood out to me from episode 1:

 

1) beautiful cinematography

2) the soundtrack

I wonder how soon they are going to put the first episode on Netflix? 


On "What's on Netflix" the episode are scheduled for the same day, but I don't know what time zone they refer to:

 

"The first episode of The King: Eternal Monarch will be available to stream on Netflix on Friday, April 17th, 2020.

Episodes will be available twice a week, arriving on Fridays and Saturdays.

There will be a total of 16 episodes of The King: Eternal Monarch
(...)

We previously believed that episodes of The King: Eternal Monarch would arrive the following day after the South Korean broadcast. We’ve now learned that episodes will arrive on the same day as the South Korean broadcast."

It's one of the problems I usually have with her scripts, together with the plausibility issues (Hello, DOTS!)... Let's hope this drama won't confirm the trend.

300 thousand people on line watched the live by one app in China (although it's illegal).

Yes! Finally a sageuk to cheer for! This duo of WDH and LMH (and many in the cast) is irresistible, not to mention the intriguing plot and what a beautiful production! My heart "broke" into smithereens when that beautiful stained glass ceiling was smashed :sweat_smile: It's all good though. Those smithereens are symbolic reps of my crying joy as I watch this long-awaited sageuk! Thank you, production crew, cast and writer for presenting another awesome sageuk to the world! 

 

Definitely a K-drama to watch! :thumbsup: Hoping for more quality sageuks in the pipeline as well :love:

 

Thanks to all who shared live updates and other info. :)

So true. I really hope not again. Let's hope NOT! 

Having said that, even if it will be, just going by what was shown in today's premiere, I believe it will still be a helluva sageuk to watch. I'm sure many like me have been "so starved of sageuks", this is definitely the first of more (hoping...) needed to satiate that hunger. :wub:
