I really wasn't going to watch this drama. It's a role he's done so many times before, and the plot is familiar (poor girl meets rich royalty and they hated each other at first). But LMH looks better than ever, and I believe the whole drama is written so he can say those romantic lines to feed our thirst. And frankly, that's enough to keep this thirsty girl interested. :D

Thank you @gtLmh0622 and @willenette for your explanation about this word. :) 

NEW article released today and again it is about Lee Minho's way of talking in this drama or Igonche (이곤체). Only two episodes have been released and see our Oppa's power of acting!  

'The King' Lee Min-ho, Seriously 'Igonche'… Fashionable feeling already

20200420145012_5e9d381449207_1.jpg

'The King-the Lord of Eternity' Lee Min-ho is thrilled with romance acts that transcend seriousness and pity. Actor Lee Min-ho made a comeback to the home theater after a long time through the first broadcast of the SBS gilt drama 'The King-Lord of Eternity' (hereinafter referred to as 'The King'). 
From the first broadcast, while showing a passionate interest by walking through two digits of viewership ratings, Lee Min-ho shook his heart with the straight lines of 'Igonche', which added the emperor's dignity.

Lee Min-ho transformed into 'Igon', the third emperor of the Korean Empire, and announced a successful return with excitement due to his deep masculine beauty and more mature romance acting. 
Lee Min-ho's 'I-gon' is the perfect monarch with a beautiful appearance, a graceful appearance, and a tranquil character. He is a 'hyper-type' man who is good at various sports such as rowing and horseback riding, and prefers accurate numbers rather than vague words. 
In the first episode, Lee Min-ho overwhelmed his gaze with his gorgeous looks and physicals that suited the protagonist who had all these virtues. With excellent riding skills, he perfectly digested even breathing with the white horse 'Maximus' and showed off the character Lee Gon, who might exist in imagination.

 

In particular, Lee Min-ho amplified the excitement of fantasy romance by charmingly digesting the written words of the emperor, adding to the emperor's weight with a heavy voice tone along with a deep glow in every scene. 

From the one-time 'force hug' ending that embraces Tae-tae, saying, "I'm finally seeing you. How are you doing?" From the one-time "I'll greet the Empress," to the two "straight-propose" endings that raised expectations about romance. Lee Min-ho exerted the charm of passing seriousness and pity, and exulted his heart with an unprecedented high-quality straight romance. 
In particular, in the 2nd broadcast that provoked a hot reaction on the 18th, Lee Gon exploded the sadness to Tae-eul who keeps making himself lonely, and then he said, "I'm going to greet you as my empress. I'll just be the reason for you. This world." The reason I propose to my feet is the reason I am tied up. 
Lee Min-ho's calm tone and glance of excellence made Lee Gon's proposal to deepen his proposing scene more deeply, causing 'My Majesty's Pain'. 
Lee Min-ho's excitement, which created a proposing scene with nothing but 'Igonche', was immediately postponed on the day, and on the portal site, including the name of Lee Min-ho, 'I'll welcome you as the Empress' took control of the top real-time search terms and boasted a strong topic.
In addition, Lee Min-ho provided a wealth of fun as an ambassador to and from Tikitaka with Kim Eun-woo and Woo Do-hwan in the process of drawing Korean adaptation period of Emperor Lee Gon of the Korean Empire. "You're beheading", "Your eyes are noisy", "Would you like some spice?", "I don't eat unfamiliar food," but sincerely digesting the "Igonche" dialogue that brings laughter to viewers. He predicted the birth of various buzzwords. 
Expectations are raised in the fantasy romance of Lee Min-ho, Kim Go-eun, and 'Eul Couple', who have tightly tied their hearts with their ecstatic straight romance.

Meanwhile, the SBS Geumto drama 'The King-Lord of Eternity' is broadcast every Friday and Saturday at 10pm.

Hello All, i have been meaning to write my thoughts on the drama but this thread moving so fast (which is good btw) and i have been reading all the posts.

 

So here are my opinion for the Drama.

 

So lets start with the Plot/Storyline.
The Story has a lot of Layers and sub plots that eventually need to be resolved/answered. We have Parallel world, time traveling, romance, bromance, and character backstories that needs to be flesh out throughout. This drama advertised KES pushing the envelope of fantasy romance and i know that there are other parallel story/time traveling Drama, so i’m really curious to see what is it exactly she is pushing. what is it with the King that is different than others?. 
I know people are confused with some of the time jump in Episode 1, especially the first scene where Lee Rim was interrogated by Ta Eul, because it was dated in 2020 and his death was dated in 1995, but i actually like it, i believe that first scene is purposely put in there, not to confuse the audience, but to prepare or made us aware that time jump/traveling is involved. And i kinda like when show/drama are doing risky thing. that style reminds me of Breaking bad (US Show), if anybody in here have watched breaking bad, you know the very first scene was actually a scene from several episode later. I think it’s a nice touch. the main mystery remains, who saved Lee Gon (Popular prediction is his future self) and if this will have happy Ending, how would our couple can be together? I don’t see Ta Eul be the kind of Girl who wants to be a Queen and I don’t know how Lee Gon would abandon the Kingdom of Corea, although it is described in his character that he is not power hungry and could care less about his position/title as the King.
While i feel like the Back story/foundation felt rush, I’m hooked and not overly confuse. i will stick around to see it unfold
 
I’m really Impress with the world building of this Drama. There are a lot of thoughts that Goes into it and budget of course. The production os top notch and really nice to look at.
 
Character.
Lee Gon : Our Perfect King, who is wounded and longing to meet his savior. I kinda wish that we would see a bit more of Lee Gon character transition from being extremely traumatized as a child to who He is as an adult, because i feel like there is such a contrast in character from child Lee on to Adult Lee Gon. The adult version seems a bit breezy, although has a trait of somebody who had traumatic experience, such as, not easily trusting people, and don’t want to be touch. And i get that from psychological standpoint, not all traumatic people ended up become a bitter adult, but often times i think the breezy/easy going/humor is to shield the painful things they have inside, so even with the contras, i can see it being realistic that Adult Lee Gon is the way he is. He grew up confident but you can tell he put a wall around him and only let those he trust in
So i think it make sense that He would trust and be more vulnerable with Ta Eul, also letting her touch Him. While He never met her, her face has been the image attached to his salvation. Even i think He knows that she wasn’t the one who saved her, but her face has been the one attached to that saving moment for lee gon. 
 
Jung Ta Eul : I’m loving KGE portrayal of this character. i don’t have a lot to say nor do i have a lot of opinion, because she seems to be straightforward. She stand with justice and she is not buying the BS from people. It’s very consistent writing to have her repulse by Lee Gon right now, it fits her character. Because, for her right now Lee gon is a suspicious person, and she is not letting her guard down no matter how handsome he is :). Now I’m curious to see the switch from her Character when she start falling for Lee Gon. Idk much about Luna and looking forward to see it.
 
J young/J Eun Sop : Ok, i might become a woo do Hwan fan. While a lot of his fans think that he might be under utilized from the last 2 episode, i think it requires a great level of acting skills to play a subtle yet, two very different character. I think he nailed it and i want to see more of Jo young because he is kinda cold, which is different from his child character or he is like that During duty?. I was Hoping he would take the King's offer to have a beer with Him and he would take off his Royal Guard Attitude and be a friend to Lee Gon. Im hoping to see more interaction like that between the two of them. As far as Eun Sop goes, im curious to see How his character is playing out throughout all of this.
 
Kang Shin Jae : This one remains a mystery for me, I don’t know much nor do i have speculation. He will either end up siding with Lee Gon/Ta Eul team or he might end up siding with Lee rim.
 
The prime minister : This is the one i feel like it could been written Better. I don’t mind the fact that She is after the King, But i’d like her character to be written up with a little dignity and more like a serious political figure. The one we have right now, makes me wonder what did she do to get her position? I read in the character reveal, she is willing to use her divorce to get the position, but still give us a bit more serious looking PM. 
 
As Far as Lee Rim, I think we see who He is for the most part. But i want to know what is his ultimate plan/goal aside from taking over the throne. And he seems to be playing god, and not the good kind
 
Romance.
I like how our Couple is yin and yang, and opposites truly attract. At This point, even with the proposal, i don’t think Lee Gon is in love with Ta Eul yet, or maybe more like smitten. She is the only Girl who didn’t go gaga over him and is not sway by his charm. I think most guys who get a lot of attention like Lee Gon is attracted to someone like Ta Eul. He feel safe around her more so that anything and he is been longing to see her and now that he is, he really is happy and want to be with her because there is this underlying feeling that Ta Eul is safe. Of course this will lead into being in love. the whole proposal remind me of “what’s wrong with secretary kim” where PSJ character proposed to PMY character because she was quiting her job. He wasn’t in love yet or realized that he is in love with her, he was proposing because He wants to hold on to something that is familiar and safe.
I can’t wait to see the romance develop and seeing a girl like Ta Eul falling in love :).
 
Overall, the story is rich and im really Hoping that KES knows the exit Plan and will execute them well.
 
Also, im at the point where i no longer investing into the ACTORS, but i am really rooting for the character.  and i am attached to the character and not the actors. it’s like LMH and KGE disappear and I’m watching Ta Eul and Lee Gon against the world or Two world heheh

The Character That Received Attention From Netizens In "The King: Eternal Monarch"

maximus-Lee-Minho-the-king-eternal-morna

 

"The King: Eternal Monarch" just started and the drama is popular in and out of Korea. The drama has a lot of characters introduced in the first two episodes that aired.

On an online community, viewers of the drama pointed out that they particularly notice this character. This is none other than Maximus, Emperor Lee Gon (Lee MinHo)'s white horse. It is a seventh-grade official and Lee Gon's partner.

Viewers have been stunned by the beauty of Maximus. In the drama too, a lot of people wanted to have a picture of the beautiful animal.

 

This scene where Lee Gon said "What's wrong, Maximus?" was also popular.

Yes, when I saw every individual media account updated the post with tag #李敏镐骑白马# (Lee Min Ho riding white horse). I know this tag must be trending on search list that every individual media account wants to be noticed under LMH's popularity.  :D

 

But heard that our lovely baby Maximus is another breed that can't grow up to be a long-leg horse. :lol:

@SophieH, I dont think its Zion's song "I just want to Be with you"

 

Its different with the song that was played in the end of eps 1. The song that played in the opening of eps 2 using lines like... "in your eyes... etc"

 

But the song is beautiful and it feels so calming

I have a question, since Lee Gon is Emperor, doesn't Emperors use the word "I" differently?  I know the Chinese Emperors use "Cham", instead of "Woh" for "I". I am sure in saguek dramas, the king or emperor use a different "I" as commoners do. So did LG do that and if he did, would JTE not notice that he speaks like royalty and not like a layman? Just wondering if someone who understands Korean, noticed that. Thanks!

 

I also noticed that the king does not speak at all like they usually say in South Korea. There are references to the dialect of North Korea and strange ending forms for words. And the tonality is different.

Now that’s how you start a drama! It’s already so epic and we’re only two episodes in! I’m so excited to see what happens next!

 

The quality of this drama is amazing. The visuals are breathtaking and the storyline is already so intense and intriguing. I felt like I was watching a movie because there was just so much good stuff happening but then remembered I was watching a drama and was so glad I’d get to watch more of this! I love how this drama has drawn me into the parallel universes too. 


So I’m guessing the girl in the rabbit jacket who LG spotted is his universes version of TE and that version can cross into our universe too cos she appeared in TE’s car. Which brings me to how she could’ve been in the car and then vanished because I don’t think TE was just seeing things.. maybe she can teleport or choose where she ends up or something when she goes through the portal seeing as LG appears to have stopped time when he travelled to our universe?

 

I’m also curious if DNA remains the same in both universes cos if so, that’ll trigger the fact that LG’s dad has passed away in our universe too and perhaps that allows him to meet his mum here also. Did LG’s Mum pass away in his universe too? I also wonder what LG’s mum has done after her husband and child passed away because the evil uncle wouldn’t have let her live for nothing and I wonder if she will end up helping LG. And can I just say that LJJ is doing a crazy good job playing the evil uncle. He literally has made the character so ambitious and evil, it’s so entertaining to watch. 
 

I also wonder if time travel will end up being incorporated into the story somehow especially if LG managed to stop time when he travelled into our world or if there will be more parallel universes because I’m convinced the person who saved LG when he was younger was the older version of himself. The stature does not appear to be TE and perhaps he was wearing TE’s police badge when he saved his younger self because in whatever world or time he was from, he is already in a relationship with TE and maybe the badge is like a good luck charm he wears sometimes? Ok I’m definitely overthinking haha but that’s what a good drama does and I can’t wait to watch more!
 

I’m most excited to watch LG and TE fall in love properly and I’m even more eager to see TE’s reaction when she realises LG was telling the truth the whole time. I hope she visits his world too and sees his life as the king. Something tells me a jealous TE is going to be the best thing ever.

And my goodness, it’s so good seeing LMH back on the screen. He is so handsome and is it just me, or has he become even more handsome (if that’s even possible)? He is so charismatic and just oozes charm. So much talent and charisma I can’t handle it! I’m so happy he’s back  KGE is killing it too. I’m loving her portrayal of a tough cop who just doesn’t care what people think of her. She’s got a good heart but doesn’t sweet talk and is so real. It’s so refreshing. These two are going to blow up the screen even more.
 

Counting down the clock until the weekend!
