Kim Go Eun To Join Lee Min Ho As Leading Roles In Kim Eun Sook’s New Fantasy Drama

Kim Go Eun To Join Lee Min Ho As Leading Roles In Kim Eun Sook’s New Fantasy Drama

May 20, 2019
by J. Lim

Screenwriter Kim Eun Sook will be having another reunion in her upcoming drama!

On May 20, production company Hwa&Dam Pictures announced that Kim Go Eun has been cast in a leading role for Kim Eun Sook’s next drama “The King: The Eternal Monarch” (literal translation). Kim Go Eun previously worked with Kim Eun Sook on the hit drama “Goblin.”

A source from Hwa&Dam Pictures stated, “‘The King: The Eternal Monarch’ will be a fantasy romance drama that goes between two parallel universes of the Republic of Korea and the Empire of Korea. Kim Go Eun will take on two different roles, as detective Jung Tae Eul in the Republic of Korea and the criminal Luna in the Empire of Korea.”

They went on to state, “It’s not easy to play two completely different characters of a detective and a criminal. We believe that with Kim Go Eun’s versatility as an actress, which she has shown in her various films and in her role in ‘Goblin,’ where she showed great depth as her character grew from a girl to a mature woman, she will be able to successfully take on the two different characters.”

“The King: The Eternal Monarch” will be a fantasy romance of two parallel worlds where the emperor of the Korean empire Lee Gon tries to fight against evil by teaming up with detective Jung Tae Eul to close the door between the two worlds. Lee Min Ho, who worked with Kim Eun Sook on “Heirs,” has already been confirmed to play the role of Lee Gon.

The drama is set to begin filming in the second half of the year, and will begin airing in 2020.

Are you excited to see Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun working together with Kim Eun Sook?

Kim Go-eun is starring in the writer's latest, "The King: Forever Sovereign", alongside Lee Min-ho.

She will take on the challenge of playing two roles as a detective named Jeong Tae-eul, and Luna, a low-life criminal in this fantasy romance drama.

Hwa and Dam Pictures stated, "It's not easy playing not just two roles, but two very contrasting roles. However, we decided she has the capacity to pull it off, as she has proven herself through various movies and her performance as a girl to a woman in the drama "Goblin"".

"The King: Forever Sovereign" deals with the subject of parallel worlds. A deity has unleashed a demon unto the world of humans, and that demon has opened the door to a parallel world. An emperor of the Korean Empire tries to shut the doors to a dimension opened by demons, and a detective tries to protect their life, the people, and their love.

"The King: Forever Sovereign" begins filming later this month and aims for a release in 2020.

She will be working alongside actor Lee Min Ho, who was announced as the male lead of the drama earlier this month.

According to the K-news, South Korean Detective Jung Tae-Eul is another role of female lead. It seems Lee Min Ho only portray the King  Lee Gon.  :blink::(

1.[+610, -87] She doesn’t match Lee Min Ho.

 

2. [+553, -197] I’m curious about her background. Is it definitely due to her acting?

3. [+329, -63] Lee Min Ho has strong features. They don’t match

4. [+430, -273] Don’t pretend to be cute like in ‘Goblin’

5. [+221, -102] I’m looking forward to seeing Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun. Lee Min Ho will show his character.

6. [+108, -29] Oh, that’s so annoying.

7. [+116, -55] Pretty and good actress! Park Shin-hye, Song Hye-kyo, Kim Tae-hee, why not choose them?

8. [+69, -11] I don’t want to hear her nasal voice anymore.
