“The King: Eternal Monarch” tells the story of Emperor Lee Gon (Lee Min Ho) and detective Jung Tae Eul (Kim Go Eun), who live in parallel universes where Korea is a constitutional monarchy or democracy but works together to give it a try and save people’s lives.
In the previous episode, Lee Gon realized that Lee Rim (Lee Jung Jin), Lee Gon’s father, Emperor Lee Ho (Kwon Yool), killed and took the other half of the legendary Silla dynasty flute (manpashikjeok), is still alive and well lives able to stop time when he travels to the alternative universe like Lee Gon. Unlike Lee Rim, who thanks to the imperial spy can see which universe Lee Gon is in, Lee Gon unfortunately cannot know which world Lee Rim has gone into.
The newly released stills capture Lee Gon and Lee Rim in moments of dramatic confrontation amid a large crowd, creating a relaxed atmosphere. Lee Gon looks on with his cold look, while Lee Rim, who is not shaken by Lee Gon’s energy, faces him with just as much charisma and strength. Will Lee Rim recognize Lee Gon 25 years after the night of the betrayal?
The confrontation scene was filmed in the Haeundae district in Busan in April. Even after props were set up late into the night to represent the Korean Empire, a large crowd of people formed to watch the shoot. Lee Min Ho and Lee Jung Jin put their hearts and souls into acting for the dramatic scene when their newly formed audience cheered. The crowd and staff applauded when the actors successfully completed their scene.
The production team commented, “We captured Lee Min Ho and Lee Jung Jin’s breathtaking charisma battle in a unique atmosphere. Please stay tuned to see how Lee Gon and Lee Rim, who both hold half of the legendary flute and travel through time, approach each other and what will become of them. “
“The King: Eternal Monarch” will air on Fridays and Saturdays at 10 p.m. KST.
