We had previously thought that Episodes of The King: Eternal Monarch would be released the day following the South Korean broadcast. We’ve now learned that episodes will arrive on the same day as the South Korean broadcast.

Is there a plot to The King: Eternal Monarch's story?

This series takes place in two different universes. The first is very similar to Korea today. The country of Korea in the opposite universe is an empire ruled over by one but good monarch. The door to the other universe is opened and evil plots begin to unfold, so the Korean Emperor enlists help from a detective to save the worlds.

What are the cast members for The King: Eternal Monarch's?

The King: The Eternal Monarch has confirmed the casting of these cast members:

Role Cast Member Where Have I Seen/Heard Them Before?
Emperor Yi Gon Lee Min Ho The Legend of the Blue Sea | Faith | City Hunter
Jung Tae Eul / Luna Kim Go Eun Goblin | Canola | Your Song
Jo Eun Sup / Jo Young Woo Do Hwan My Country: The New Age | Mad Dog | Save Me
Kang Shin Jae Kim Kyung Nam Come and Hug Me | Prison Playbook | Defendant
Goo Seo Ryung Jung Eun Chae The Guest | The Great Battle | The King
Yi Rim Lee Jung Jin The K2 | More Than Words Can Say | Running Man

Four years after the success of Goblin, South Korean actress Kim Go Eun is back in leading roles in television shows.

Can The King: Eternal Monarch break all-time records in K-drama?

It’s going to take something special for a new K-Drama series to smash into the highest-rated Korean dramas in public broadcast.

To reach the Top 50, The King: Eternal Monarch would need to have nearly half the South Korean viewership. As it stands now, K-drama will require at most 45%.

Between 2010 and 2019, only six K-dramas were able break into the Top 50.

It’s a tall order, but The King: Eternal Monarch has every chance of being a great success.
