[MHN Park Jimin reporter / translated by Jung Halim] With writer Kim Eunsook's comeback, and the casting of Lee Minho, Kim Goeun, Woo Dohwan, and Jung Eunchae, 'The King: Eternal Monarch' is currently airing on SBS, with releases on Netflix as well.

The amount of hype behind the project led to its first broadcast hitting a 11.6 rating, having a comfortably hgih start, but currently ratings have dropped to single digits, underwhelming considering its pedigree.

Kim Eunsook's story style and plot progression does add to the fun of 'The King', but the anachronistic dialogue and the rapidly escalated love story ruined the immersion the drama had. The romance especially was a tough sell with how audiences couldn't catch up to how fast it was progressing. With only 6 episodes released, it might be too early for a full explanation of Lee Gon's emotional state, but with how Kim Eunsook's main style is to center on the romance, it seems the drama will soon have to find a way to make viewers emphatize one way or another.

With the 'parallel universe' motif being a unique and rare one in K-Dramas, tons of reviews have been floating up from social media. They show that while 'The King' might not be performing as well as been hoped, there still is a fever for the show. With the last episode showing that Lee Rim is still alive, and Lee Gon predicting that he will come for him next rose the tension in the show.

Stills of Lee Gon and Jo Young facing off each other have been revealed, which drew some attention. Especially with how they were portrayed in the show almost as blood brothers, the backstory between the two is to be seen. 

A romance between the logically intellectiual emperor 'Lee Gon' and the liberal arts minded detective 'Jung Taeeul' with a parallel universe plot in the backdrop, 'The King: Eternal Monarch' airs every Friday and Saturday at 10pm KST, with the episode's release on Netflix soon after.
