The King: The Eternal Monarch,” is set in a “parallel universe.” Lee plays imaginary Korean Emperor Lee Gon, who attempts to separate “reality” from the “parallel world.
According to Studio Dragon Corporation,
“The King: Eternal 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.”
Studio Dragon Corporation also stated that Kim Go Eun’s was chosen for the job because of her great acting on Goblin.
Studio Dragon Corporation also pointed out that;
“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 sucessfully take on Jeong Tae Eul and Luna’s double role.”
The writer of the drama, Kim Eun soo also wrote major dramas such as, ‘The Heirs’, “Descendants of the Sun (2016)” and “Mr. Sunshine (2018).”
