Oh my gawd. Love the King. I love even more the chemistry of the 2 leads. It is so fitting in their opposing personalities. When you love, should there be always an explanation? Should it be logical? This was explained from epi 1- 10 by LH and JTE. I looked into their points of view, not mine. Unless I am playing the game if I were LG, if I were JTE.

Hail to the King drama. Everything in it has the right ingredients. I find the conversations very touching, witty, funny, serious, sensible, as well as it stimulates my mind to work. I love the characters including their flaws as persons. It is refreshing to see LG as king, a benevolent leader that is so lacking in our leaders today. And his other side that was within him for a long time and now unleashed at the moment he saw and has become firmer still when he interacted with JTE. Of course, I understand all the messages that both of you are conveying differently as your love developed amid the parallel worlds.

Different genres. The other is a remake. I am more interested with an original script. My choice The King. Fascinating story and an enthralling journey for me as a viewer. I love everything in it including the FEW flaws pointed out CONSTRUCTIVELY. I am very happy watching it aside from the plot but the chemistry of the 2 leads. KGE is very believable in her characterization of the cop who can be badass, logical, took a risk to find out the truth about the crazy person, and who slowly falls in love after undergoing a process that seemed to find connection between her heart and mind. When she realize s her feelings she plunged and embraced into it knowing how uncertain to live and live in 2 separate worlds.

I'm watching from Australia and so far am loving this show. Started today, about to watch ep 6. Don't care about historical accuracies its a fantasy drama after all. So far product placement hasn't annoyed me unlike other kdramas I've watched and surprisingly I'm enjoying the chemistry between the cast, especially leads. Surprisingly so. Too many negative people. If you don't like it, don't watch it. I'm loving it and will definitely continue through to the end. Just finished Rugal as well. Totally different genre but enjoyed it very much.

I fully agree with you all, just started this drama three days ago and binge watched, what an amazing story, absolutely gripping, very scientific, innovative, acting direction and cinematography is so amazing. not sure why people are saying its boring, actually its brilliant, you need to understand the plot, the way this story uncovers is so beautiful.. I am so impressed with K dramas, they are so superior, Mr Sunshine, Crash Landing and now this one.. Absolutely incredible making. I can not wait for the next episode now.. and people who say lead couple does not have any chemistry are crazy, they set screen on fire, very different pairing, amazing acting too..

The constant use of slow motion and fixation with special effects is dragging the flow of the story. Please make the story telling fast-paced for God's sake!

I love TKEM.. It intrigues me a lot but sadly it suffers the same fate as Moon Lovers back in 2016.. It was a hit internationally but a flop in Korea...Moon Lovers deserves a sequel but since it's not popular in Korea we'll never see the light of the sequel to this wonderful drama. That is why I don't undestand Knets.. Hope that the producer won't reduce the episodes and the rating increases. Although the chemistry between LMH and KGE is almost zero but the mystery makes up for it. I guess the scriptwriter kind of rushing their romance. Anyway, can't wait for episode 11!

Honestly?! I didn't feel the chemistry between KGE and LMH, it felt so suddenly. No build up feelings and get to know moments (which are one of the things that i love about kdrama), im more excited to see WDH and LMH bromance. WDH did a great job potraying 2 different characters..he keep stealing my heart as Jo Yeong and keeping me laughing as Eun Seop. So far I like how the story unfolds and cannot wait to see Lee Gon confrontation with his uncle..*sighs..Friday is too far.

Whereas in the king both actor and actress I find it so stiff forcing to act likely the actress doesn't suited the tough or boyish like refer to her acting also with jung hae in. Even the kissing scene with lee min ho. No such good emotions. Sorry but this is my opinion only. Ty

The actors are ones I've enjoyed before. Hands down better. Two thumbs up better. Zero versus 10 better. This show is why I watch Korean dramas to begin with. Thanks to everyone involved in TKEM

When they say ratings...is all viewership for The King: Eternal Monarch being counter or is it just that of South Korea? Because if it's just the ratings for South Korea, it's gonna be low...they aren't polling international fans in the count. I also believe that because there are some CGI scenes that used Japanese and Chinese palace imagery as a representation of a Korean palace, South Korean people were upset, and it may have cost the drama home grown viewership...given some native viewers hold deep animosity toward both countries... I also believe it's the time slot, now that The World of The Married has ended, those viewers will pick of The King, unless they find a better alternative...which I'm not sure there is one. Personally, The King is a great drama...Im not even a LMH fan or at least I wasn't until ep. 10 he won me over...but it's a brilliant storyline, with lots of twist and turns, it'll make you think...but if people or to lazy to keep up, then they want watch. The settings and costumes are beautiful and natural, the chemistry between all the actors and actresses is really nice ..you can feel the energy. I hope people give it a chance.

The King is the best, I don't agree for it's low rating. This is actually something new which make the viewers think and analyze the situation. Married is unhealthy because the story is predictable. The King is much more creative from the story line, cinematography, back story and the twists. The characters are amazing knowing that they portray 2 different person while Lee Min Ho helps us viewers to collate info. The King bonds our family as well discussing who, where, when & how questions during and after each episodes. This makes our minds quaranthink rather than stressing ourselves from Married. We from the Philippines are always excited for the next episodes and we already started voting who will give up their world for love ❤️ That makes it interesting even more. Action, Fun & Drama in one.

I haven't seen the World of married, but I surely like The King: Eternal Monarch. I wait every week to watch at least one episode of it. Each episode, once a week, makes people to watch other things and sometimes forget about new episodes of The King. I really wish I could see more episodes and not just 1 weekly.

I really cannot understand the low ratings. Maybe the fans are watchingon Netflix, not in TV... I am totally addicted to this Drama, the acting is totally in point and the leading actors have the best chemistry ever. Since i am a Fan of LMH i have to watch this Drama, although it is not available in Netflix Germany. LMH is perfect as a king and the role suits him totally. Since i am not a teenager but a woman in her 30ths, i love seeing the man LMH.

I have not watched The world of the married so I do not know about it. But for The King, i have been watching it throughout and i just love it, i love how unique it is and how complicated the plotline is, this drama is not for everyone and I personally think it shouldn’t be because this is actually a different kind of a drama with a more complexed story. It may not have th perfect viewer ratings but The King is one amazing drama! I will continue to support this and I know for a fact that both the screen writer and the Two main actors have never let us down before. So let’s give them our support in the future! Lee Min Ho oppa Fighting!!

Frankly speaking the comments below must be from hardcore LMH fans me being one . But even him being on it hasn't yet made me watch it . People speaking abt the amazing storyline for one it's fictional totally fantasized and second the chemistry . So much so that I like the clips of Wo Do Hwan more I mean the bromance more than the romance. Whereas the World of Married on the other hand breaks every stereotype about marriage in today's world . Not a single character is perfect in it which is exactly what we are and when it comes to chemistry. Even the 40+ actors have more chemistry in one scene than all the episodes of The King combined . You might come fight me but the ratings say otherwise . Almost 25% viewership and that's the highest. Want to see LMH breaking the mould of the superstar and really feature in something like CLOY which is more realistic or even a historical fiction like Kingdom. Faith , Legend of the Blue Sea and now this . He has so much potential as an actor . Right after Boys before Flowers he had Personal Taste and Cityhunters. Those were the best he has performed as an actor and that's a genre which really suits him. Even Faith was poorly recieved , Legend of the Blue Sea was a commercial hit because of the amazing chemistry and a believable story from the ancient world . Hope now that World of Married has ended the ratings improve but still not that positive on it.

I am not a fan of either of the 2 lead stars. But wow the chemistry is poignant, not the usual one and they are in their early 30 yrs and the relationship was gradually developed although time line makes a difference. LG has been yearning for her while JTE was stunned, shooked and so she needs to harmonize mind and heart. How their own side of love was developed properly.

Finally someone who thinks the same. I was reading all the comments wondering if I am watching the same drama as everyone else. I’m sorry the acting is fine but this story is too broken and they haven’t developed the main characters relationship well. I don’t feel invested in it at all. When they are portraying a scene where the main character is crying about something I’m usually crying with them. In this I feel nothing at all.

The king is good. But am I the only one who thinks that they celebrated their intense love so early. I feel like neither the events nor the attraction were there yet to create such an Intense love. Other K drama you can always feel it coming but never intense till like 2 or 3 episodes from the end and after the events and the story logically elevates the emotion higher ,I just didnt feel it here. Too early in the story for such strong emotions. Other than that. The show is very captivating and the act is brilliant
