We're still reeling from the fact that the popular 2020 K-drama, The King: Eternal Monarch has reached its end. Just a while back, Ep 16 was released as viewers were in for a roller coaster ride of emotions. As much as they thought that they were prepared for the climax, they really weren't! And there's a certain 'heartbreaking' major character death involved, which we won't spoil for the ones who are yet to catch up on the series finale. What made The King: Eternal Monarch extra special was the fact that it was Lee Min-ho's first big project post completing his military training.

It was also the mysterious 'parallel universe' storyline along with the gorgeous chemistry between Min-ho's Lee Gon and Kim Go-eun's Jung Tae-eul. Let's not forget Woo Do-hwan as the charming Jo Eun-seob, who was indeed the surprise package of the entire series. As was Lee Jung-jin as the devilish Lee Lim. After 16 episodes, fans were anything but ready to say goodbye to the show and flooded Twitter with messages while making the series, as expected, a worldwide trend. Moreover, fans were also appreciative of the ending and whether it was happy or sad, you'll just have to watch for yourself.

If you are yet to watch the series finale, *SPOILERS ALERT* in the tweets shown below as fans reveal what they felt about The King: Eternal Monarch Ep 16:

Above all, I am grateful for the people I have met again and for the people I have met for the first time. I want to thank the fans, who have waited a long time, and the viewers."

Unique and interesting storyline but I was often confused in the last episode. My biggest hang up was that, even though the two main characters are amazing actors, they had absolutely zero chemistry. Like, ZILCH, which kind of ruined it for me. Also, they dressed the main female lead like a grandma. It looked like she cut her own hair ten years ago and got her wardrobe from the senior section at the goodwill store from 1982. Frustrating.

I agree with the comment about the female lead clothing. She was dressed casually and sloppily through the drama. I was hoping for at least one scene with her in a dress and looking truly beautiful. Trust me....there will be no season 2 of The King. The rating overall was not good and it was expensive to produce. We just have to wait for LMH next movie or drama...and that maybe not be until the end of 2021 or 2022.

it didn't need to be pointlessly confusing, so very bad drama.

I think you did not watch the whole drama at all and judging it anyway. This drama is very different that's why we found it confusing. If you watch fully or again fully then you will understand. You just can't call a drama bad because you got confused.

TKEM here in the Philippines indeed a big help in this Pandemic Time evryone is talking and posting in chat messenger after its episodes thats why its No 1 in the Philippines. Im happy with the ending although it happens like that the director try to make the fans happy too. My conclusion of this story as what the director tries to emply is that even the UNIVERSE will change and erase the memories of the people if you really deeply in love with other or if its your fate, destiny, soulmate it will engrave in your heart forever and will make you remember in the future.

Reason why i watch The King is because of Lee Min Ho...i'm a fan of him since way back "Boys Over Flower" and now i am already 60 (turning 61 this Aug 2020)...he is my ultimate idol...during his absence because of his military obligation i keep on watching all his past movies etc and now how i wish they will come up soon with another one to watch again - Lee Min Ho PLS!!!

The ending was just terrible. It made no sense. I watched these episodes with excitement every week but this was just a big disappointment. I am glad they stayed and love each other until the end of time. But it was like watching a movie who simply did not how to tie it all together. This is the first Korean series I have watched so I won't give up on them quite yet but I am hoping they keep up with good story lines but I also hope for much better endings. I hope other people comment on this ending cause I would like to know if they have a different way of ending shows then Americans do. I love the two main actors and look forward to other projects I hope they do.

I guess we all think of a happy ending is getting married, living together and having children... that is my idea. However, neither character were willing to give up their lifestyle or commitment to "their world." So, they decided to make the best of their situation and continue to be happy by spending their weekends together for the rest of their lives traveling to different universes and time.

I agree! The ending left me deflated. He can save 2 world's but can't figure out how to marry his queen? ( As he announced to his country in dramatic fashion) And what about an heir? Sharing a life is true love, not a weekend travel buddy.

Hats off!!!! Im speechless.. I hope to see more of Lee Min Ho's drama soon.

I watched this drama only for Lee Min Ho. Obviously he did not disappoint me for taking almost 18 hrs of my life. His acting is unparalleled and he has matured a lot from BOF days in past 10 years. Portray a king in modern days was up to the mark. I would only say that his clothing style was bit off as he has a great figure to show off anything he wears so too much loose fitting clothes took away that visual effect from the viewer. I wish he will come up some amazing drama next year.. I will wait for him. All the best the King .. Lee Min Ho

A new watcher of Koreon films I'm impressed with king eternal of course the star lee ling ho is yummy but your films are so much more interesting than american films which are same same, keoreon films show alot of your cities and town which I will never see!

Thumbs up british columbia canada! Tks

Amazing Actors, loved it but would’ve like to seen if she decided to be queen and if they had a family etc. Just seen ending was a filler. But otherwise awesome. I primarily watched for Lee Min-Ho & Woo Do-Hwan

I don't know what to say about this drama cos I don't know where to start..... But one thing is for sure with me, THIS IS THE BEST KDRAMA HAVE SEEN FOR DECADES OF WATCHING THOUSANDS OF KDRAMA IN MY LIFE, and whichever kdrama wanna meets TKEM standards will have to copy TKEM from A-Z including lines, cinematography, ost, cgi etc which is professionally impossible...... Therefore, I can't guarantee another drama that will meet it to me even if the dramas are from TKEM cast..... But nevertheless am looking forward to other dramas as well.... Good luck to them all
