Goblin's Kim Go-Eun is Confirmed to Star Opposite Lee Min-Ho in New Drama

Since his recent discharge from mandatory military service, 31-year-old Lee Min-Ho is jumping right back into work. 

Details of his upcoming drama are being released slowly and it looks like things are coming along nicely for the Boys Over Flowers star. Recently, it has been confirmed by Studio Dragon Corporation, a South Korean drama production company under CJ Entertainment, that 28-year-old actress Kim Go-Eun will be starring opposite Lee. 

Kim is most known for her starring role in the mega hit K-drama, Goblin, alongside Gong Yoo. Studio Dragon Corporation, the production house of the new drama titled The King: Forever the Monarch, stated that Kim's incredible acting in Goblin was one of the many reasons they casted her as the lead.

The King: Forever the Monarch revolves around the idea of parallel worlds whereby a door to an alternate universe opens when god set devil free in the human world. Due to multiple worlds being involved, the production house was looking for an actress with great character versatility. 

"Acting for extreme characters like a detective and criminal is not an easy task. Looking at the way she interpreted characters in various films and the natural acting she showed in the growth of a girl to a woman in Goblin, we judged that if it were the broad acting skills of Kim Go-Eun, she'd be able to successfully take on Jeong Tae-Eul and Luna's double role," stated Studio Dragon Corporation. 

They elaborated further by saying, "The King: Forever the Monarch represents a fantasy romance drama that crosses in between the parallel worlds of South Korea and the Korean Empire and Kim Go-Eun will challenge herself to a double role with a South Korean detective, Jeong Tae-Eul, and a character called Luna, who lives a low life as a criminal of the Korean Empire."

With the leads secured, filming is expected to commence in the latter half of 2019 and we can estimate the drama to air during the first half of 2020.

Woo Do Hwan Confirmed To Join Lee Min Ho And Kim Go Eun In Writer Kim Eun Sook’s New Drama

Woo Do Hwan Confirmed To Join Lee Min Ho And Kim Go Eun In Writer Kim Eun Sook’s New Drama

Jun 3, 2019
by E. Cha

Woo Do Hwan will be joining Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun in Kim Eun Sook’s new drama!

On June 3, Woo Do Hwan’s agency KeyEast confirmed that the actor would be appearing in the upcoming drama “The King: The Eternal Monarch” (working title). The drama will be penned by Kim Eun Sook, the famous screenwriter behind hit dramas such as “Heirs,” “Descendants of the Sun,” “Goblin,” and “Mr. Sunshine.”

“The King: The Eternal Monarch” is a fantasy romance drama about two parallel universes. One universe resembles modern-day Korea as we know it, while the other is an alternate universe in which Korea is an empire ruled by a single monarch. In order to fight evil and close the door between their two worlds, the ruler of the Korean Empire ends up joining forces with a detective who resides in modern-day Korea.

Last month, the producers of the drama confirmed that Lee Min Ho would be starring as emperor Lee Gon, while Kim Go Eun would be playing both detective Jung Tae Eul and her lookalike criminal Luna.

Although both Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun have worked with Kim Eun Sook in the past, “The King: The Eternal Monarch” will mark Woo Do Hwan’s very first collaboration with the acclaimed writer. In the upcoming drama, Woo Do Hwan will be playing the role of Jo Eun Seob, an ordinary public service worker who lives in modern-day Korea. He will also reportedly be playing Jo Young, the bodyguard of emperor Lee Gon.

“The King: The Eternal Monarch” is currently scheduled to begin filming in the second half of this year and to premiere in early 2020.

Are you excited to see Woo Do Hwan join Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun in this new drama? Leave your thoughts below!

Hello, everyone. So happy to see this thread!

 

I'm a huge KGE fan so I'm pretty much excited for her comeback on TV. I just hope they are able to pull off the chemistry. I have never imagined LMH and KGE in a project, ever! LOL But hey, this is THE Lee Min Ho. And KGE is one of the best actresses of this generation (bias aside, this is why I love her so much) so I'm so ecstatic and really looking forward to this! 

 

I have read so many positive reactions to this pairing. But I'm not in the dark when it comes to her haters lol I hope they try and watch her other projects. She definitely can pull off just about anything.

I think Kim Go Eun is a better than LMH.  I will watch this for KGE.

I can't understand the need to compare  an actress from an actor or put anyone up for comparison.  Just appreciate their individual talent is enough.

Woo Do Hwan confirmed to star alongside Kim Go Eun and Lee Min Ho in new drama series ‘The King: The Eternal Monarch’

woodohwanjpg.jpg

 

Woo Do Hwan has been cast as another lead character in the upcoming drama series ‘The King: The Eternal Monarch’. The drama, which is slated for release in the first half of 2020, is one of the most highly anticipated series for next year. The production reunites ‘Heirs’ and ‘Goblin’ writer Kim Eun Sook with Kim Go Eun and Lee Min Ho, who are the other two confirmed leads of the show.

 

Woo Do Hwan will be playing two characters as ‘The King: The Eternal Monarch’ takes place in two parallel worlds. His character, Jo Eun Seop, seems to be an ordinary social service worker, but in another time serves as a bodyguard to the Korean emperor, Lee Gon (Lee Min Ho). Writer Kim Eun Sook is known to have propelled many male actors to the peak of their popularity, which makes this a potentially career-defining role for the actor.

 

Woo Do Hwan has previously starred in ‘Great Temptation’ alongside Red Velvet’s Joy and is set to star across AOA’s Seolhyun in the upcoming series, ‘My Country’.

Woo Do Hwan Joins Lee Min Ho’s Drama “The King: The Eternal Monarch”

K-DRAMA FANS WILL GET THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS WITH CONFIRMED APPEARANCE OF WOO DO HWAN ON LEE MIN HO’S DRAMA.

Boarding the star-studded The King: The Eternal Monarch, Woo Do Hwan takes part in the upcoming drama set to air in 2020. The eagerly-awaited series is penned by star writer Kim Eun Suk and directed by Baek Sang Hoon.

 

Currently working with fellow talented actor Yang Se Jong and senior actor Jang Hyuk for jTBC’s My Country, Woo will greet Korean drama fans in the second half of 2019.

Interestingly, the star of The Great Seducer is stringing projects following the recent dominant trend of pairing up two popular actors. Aside from his action-historical drama with Yang & Jang, he is also the villain in Park Seo Joon’s latest film, The Divine Fury.

A representative from Woo Do Hwan’s agency affirmed the casting news relaying the actor will head to filming as soon as My Country wraps up.

 

Similar to Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun’s released dual portrayals, Woo also takes two roles. In modern Korea, he is an ordinary social worker, where as in Korean empire world, he is the guardian of Lee’s character.

Taking the parallel world theme, The King: the Eternal Monarch depicts the story of Emperor Lee Gon, who is fighting off a supernatural villain by closing the door that leads to another dimension. In the other dimension, he seeks the help of his detective counterpart and Jung Tae Eul.

Then Lee MIn Ho step inside the picture I'm grinning from ear to ear just to read the news title....... I don't care who is the female lead I'm sure its going to be good.... remember when everyone argue about Kim Go Eun as female lead in Goblin??? turn out everyone love Eun Tak. And I'm sure she will portrayed the character very well.

 

And now Woo Do Hwan too.... WOW I love this drama already!!!!!! 2.gif?w=560

Not trying to compare. My intention was to show my support for KGE  and I know that there are more LMH supporters here. I'm a female viewer and that I should be going crazy over LMH but my perspective of him as an actor hasn't been that good but it doesn't mean I don't him I just think KGE is a better actor ( reminder this is just my opinion).

It's great that you're KGE's fan cos I like her as an actress as well. I hope in the future you can find a better way to support your bias. Voicing your love for her and keeps praising her talents. On the others hands if you keep insisting in your opinion who is a better actor, why the needs to do so? For an example if someone else feels the needs in their opinion KGE can't act and their bias is way better actress than KGE isn't this the wrong way to go about? Wouldn't it be better to voice our opinion in supporting our bias projects and talents in a positive ways?

I will watch this show regardless. Hopefully he proves me wrong ( actually he doesn't have to prove anything to me...he's a mega rich actor so he won't need my support). I'm going back to being a lurker.  Thank you for your thought and perspective. Have a wonderful day or night.

Can't agree more with @happivirus. Spot on.

 

We indeed need to support bias wisely, wiser. No need to compare and put someone else's bias under, because that is rude.

 

Me, my self, frankly interested to visit this forum because of Leeminho. I honestly don't know much about K-drama but I have seen several works of Leeminho. And I found them good, great. I love them. And Leeminho, I really think that he is a great actor with great talent. Definitely not just actor with beautiful face. I really amaze with his eyes particularly. His eyes could speak many emotions. Thats amazing. :))

Woo Do-hwan signs on for The King: Eternal Ruler with Kim Go-eun, Lee Min-ho0000515586_001_20190603072318864.jpg

Casting continues for writer Kim Eun-sook’s new drama The King: Eternal Ruler. The management for actor Woo Do-hwan (The Great Seducer) has confirmed that he’s been accepted a part alongside Lee Min-ho (Legend of the Blue Sea) and Kim Go-eun (The Lonely Shining Goblin).

 

The crux of the fantasy romance revolves around the chaos that is caused when a gateway opens up between two Koreas in parallel universes. In one dimension, Korea is a monarchy ruled by Emperor Lee Gon (played by Lee Min-ho), whose goal is to close the portal and stop the demons that have entered his world through the gateway. However, his motives are at odds with police officer Jung Tae-il (played by Kim Go-eun) who comes from the Korea that we are familiar with as “real.” Although closing the portal may ultimately be good for both Koreas, instinctively her first and foremost priority is to protect people and to protect the lives of the people she loves.

 

Similar to Kim Go-eun having parallel counterparts in both worlds, Woo Do-hwan has also been offered a dual role. In the “real” Korea, he would be playing an ordinary public service worker by the name of Jo Eun-seop. And in the parallel Korean empire, he would be taking on the role of Jo Young, who is Emperor Lee Gon’s personal bodyguard.

 

The King: Eternal Ruler is currently still in the planning stages and is set to air sometime in the first half of 2020. In the meantime, we will be seeing Woo Do-hwan back in dramaland this autumn when JTBC’s My Country airs in September.
