Thanks @syntyche for all the updates.:thumbsup:  Have I missed something or is there no romantic interest for Lee Gon?

 

Hi @CarolynH. Looks like Lee Gon will be involved in a love triangle:

 

"Jung Eun Chae plays Gu Seo Ryung, the youngest female prime minister of the Korean monarchy under Lee Gon. Gu Seo Ryung pursues success at all costs and makes her new target the emperor, creating tension between Lee Gon and Jung Tae Eul."

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.

@CarolynH2 arghh oh no ! I have high expectations that it would be on Netflix. 
LOTBS is finally on Netflix starting today in my region so I thought it must be good sign that they are promoting LMH before airing his new drama. Ahhh ...all wishful thinking ...

finger crossed ! 
hope you get some sleep tonight :P

SBS drama "The King: The Eternal Monarch," to be aired next year, made its first shoot on Thursday in a town in North Chungcheong Province, one of the main sets.

 

The filming site is a two-storey house with a large yard and a stand-out signboard which says, "Heroes Taekwando Studio" installed by the production team.

Since it will be broadcast in 2020, filming of the drama will be completed by first half of next year. The producers reportedly set the "house with a ginkgo tree" on the condition of their choice for the drama's location casting. As such, ginkgo trees in the drama are expected to be used as important objects.

 

Kim Eun-sook's new work "The King: The Eternal Monarch" is a drama about a romance between Lee Gwa-hyung, the emperor of the Korean Empire, and Moon Gwa-hyung, a Korean detective who tries to protect someone's life, people, and love. Lee Min-ho, the emperor of the Korean Empire, plays the role of "Lee Gon," a detective of the Republic of Korea. Other stars include Woo Do-hwan, Lee Jung-jin, Kim Kyung-nam and Jung Eun-chae.

The King: The Eternal Monarch" is scheduled to air on SBS in 2020.

@syntyche I feel like screaming because it’s been too long! I’m so excited! :w00t:

 

Hoping to get a little more spoiled before the airing. Maybe it’ll keep me sane for another 6 months as I wait. 

 

Hi @Heretorant, this is exciting indeed! Hopefully, we'll get more updates, officially or from fans :P

...

The house features a tall ginkgo tree that stands in a corner of the large courtyard. It was said that “The House with the Ginkgo Tree” was selected by the producers themselves. In particular, the ginkgo tree will be vital to the story. Because the target broadcast date is in 2020, it is expected that filming should be completed by the first half of next year.
