The King : Eternal Monarch is one of the most awaited show by Hallyu fans since it first announced to be released as it marked the returned of Lee Min-Ho to the silver screen after a nearly 3 years. It's no surprise that it instantly become #1 trending on Netflix when the series finally premiered on 17 April 2020.

In their first and second episode, the story tells about two parallel universes where one universe is a democracy that 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 that known as Emperor Lee Gon that played by Lee Min Ho. He is soon travel to the other world and met a detective named Jung Tae Eul (Kim Go Eun) that he believes had saved him.when he was little.

The story can be confusing if you skipped the first 30 minutes of Episode 1 so it is important for you to give your whole attention in the beginning of the story though I find it a bit boring as a starter. However this drama has it own rarity and I would love to know how the story evolve.

Push aside the storyline, the cinematography is just beyond brilliant. I love how stunning they made the Kingdom of Korea look and the setting for most of the scenes just glued me to the screen.

I hope this k-drama will continue woo-ing us with lots more interesting scenes and just like the others I am anxiously waiting for the new episodes!
