The King: Eternal Monarch is inching towards its finale. The 16 episodes show has already premiered 12 episodes. While international viewers are showering the series with love, viewers in South Korea seem to have mixed feelings for the show. Over the past few weeks, the graph of the ratings has been unstable. After a stellar start back in April, owing to numerous factors including Lee Min Ho's return to the small screen following the end of his military enlistment, the SBS drama struggles to pose double-digit ratings.  

WARNING: Possible Warnings Ahead: It seems like the show has very few loyal viewers in South Korea. Nielsen Korea reveals, The King: Eternal Monarch witnessed a huge dip on Friday, with the premiere of the 11th episode. The drama recorded its worst ratings on Friday with the episode scoring an average nationwide rating of 5.2 percent and 6.6 percent in the nation. 

However, the turn of events on Friday, featuring Kim Go Eun, watched the return of viewers on Saturday. The 11th episode ended with Min Ho's Lee Gon announcing Go Eun's Jung Tae Eul will be the Kingdom of Corea's queen. He made the announcement as he watched her almost die after escaping the goons of Lee Lim, who managed to draw her into the Kingdom. As she fainted in the arms of Lee Gon, the episode's cliffhanger drew audiences on Saturday, thus witnessing a rise in viewership. 

The new episode watched Gon continue to track down his uncle, to avenge the death of his father and uncle, while he showered Tae Eul with love. His thirst for avenge and his love for the soon-to-be queen played in the favour of the show. The 12th episode of The King: Eternal Monarch witnessed a decent rise in viewership. The Saturday night episode recorded average nationwide ratings of 6.1 percent and 8.1 percent. It has shown a significant rise as compared to The King: Eternal Monarch Episode 10 as well. The 10th episode recorded a rating of 6.4 percent and 7.8 percent for its two parts. 

What did you think of the two episodes of The King: Eternal Monarch that aired over the weekend? Let us know in the comments below.

I keep seeing people saying this was not romantic enough. Seriously, if this isn't romantic then 90% of all Western shows could be considered completely cold and empty of feelings given that most of them don't come even near to the level of romance in this show. Anyway, it was clearly not meant to be a melodrama. It also contains traces of action, SC-FI, intrigue and comedy. I'm a big SCI-FI fan (I consider myself a trekkie) and most of the shows I watch are, therefore, SCI-FI. So trust me when I tell you that this is not just romantic, but even a bit too cheesy in some parts. :) But personally I loved every single episode. Hell, I stood awake until 2 in the morning and arrived late at work because of it. :d

I was actually not looking forward to watching this, but I did eventually. I was pleasantly surprised by this drama. I love the time-space continuum theme, how the writer was able to roll with it. There are flaws but not enough to ruin the whole drama for me. I am not a Lee Min-ho fan at all, so I was not concerned at the chemistry at all but I do believe that both the lead actors were able to deliver good in this drama. I had to binge watch it because the end of each episode has me longing to discover what happens next. If you're looking for a heavy-romance drama, this is not for you. This drama has quickly risen to my top K-series which include The Secret Garden, Goblin and Coffee Prince to name a few. It's quite different from the usual K-series but still light and easy to watch.

This is not a heavy-romance drama? I'm not being sarcastic, but I really don't see how this isn't a heavy-romance drama. Admittedly, I am relatively new to K-dramas and most Western shows are less romantic. So for me, this show was even a bit too cheesy in some parts (e.g. the end of episode 11). Don't get me, wrong I absolutely loved it and I can't understand how it performed average in South Korea.

I love the story, different from a typical korean lovesy dovesy movie. I am a fan of Lee Min Ho, he gets better in his portrayal of his character. The female lead is unique in her acting and knew her in Goblin. I am not sure why locally ratings are low, I would like to see the ending should be the future queen married to the king if its possible and lives in palace. Because that’s what happy endings are!

Individually the acting for each character is great, however after watching so many series already I can say that match up for both of this actor and actress is not a great combination. The chemistry is missing, it just fall flat when they are together.

i agree they lack chemistry..no emotional connection. I love the girl in Goblin..I just watched it because of LMH.

If you’re talking about chemistry,Sorry this is not a full Romance drama so it’s hard to see the chemistry here. If they added more romance you will probably say or talk about chemistry but luckily they added some in Episode 11-12. And it was trending most especially the “beheading kiss” they’re are cute,perfect as a couple. I wish after “The King: Eternal Monarch” I wish Lee Min-ho & Kim Go-eun work for a Romance drama☺️ . I can see the chemistry between them. ❤️❤️❤️

I don't usually watch K-dramas, but found this series by accident and fell in love with it. It was slow at the beginning. These two recent episodes were the most exciting, action and expression of love. I like action and adventure (a little romance doesn't hurt). I hope the upcoming episodes are just as exciting or better. The chemistry between Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun is expressed really well - they are great together. I'm hoping they do get married by the last episode. I like Kim Go Eun in her role, because she is no dainty princess, one who doesn't care to wear dresses. She's a skilled fighter, which is why she was able to survive her attackers and fight back. I actually prefer this type of female characters. Lee Min Ho is truly handsome and he matches his role as King (he stands tall, holds his head high, he's strong leadership shows, he's smart and skilled fighter, and he shows how he bends to win his love).

This show is amazing. Can’t understand the low rating comments. I’ve seen all LMH series and have seen him grow with each drama series. The King is definitely not a shallow series, it requires thinking and analysis and strategy. It is a definite shift in target audience. Its complex plot may not be understood by fans who stayed shallow and preferred simple plots, like simple love hate relationship and a happy ending. This series gets you thinking. I work as a very senior leader in an organization and does not have a lot of time but Lee Minho he amazes me with his presence on the camera and exudes sincerity in every role that I have seen him. A truly Special and gifted actor. You can tell he is different from the rest...acts with true Class. LMH is not only good looking but really a Smart actor! All the best to you @actorleeminho.

Through and through its the embodiment of perfection. People calling it boring or emotionless shock me, for the exact amount of lack of emotions is building everything up to the perfect emotion. Oh such a real fiction. Oh the timings missed and match. The balance of a drama is perfectly restored. Love for the show and for lee min ho.

I also think that E11 was boring until it was the rescue scene. E12 i was happy because i have seen the character of Eun-sup and the unbreakable sword which he is mostlikely to be watched. And also the love story of the milk tea girl and the press girl. Which is which is going to be there partner.

I'm American and non-Asian but The King: Eternal Monarch is my favorite Asian series and Lee Min Ho has been my favorite Asian actor since I first watched Boys Over Flowers the first time years ago.

I'm American and non Asian but love the series even though I have to read the sub titles in English. Lee Min Ho has been my favorite Asian actor since I first watched Boys Over Flowers years ago. I've probably watched Boys over Flowers and Inheritors like a dozen times and I'll likely do the same with The King. Fingers crossed that there are many seasons of The King for us to watch. I'm hoping that Lee Min Ho will find time to come to America and do tv and movies here as well! I'm such a fan of his work.

It would be interesting to know the location and the sampling size used to determine such low ratings. Basing on Netflix, The King Eternal Monarch is number 1, so I am perplexed as to HOW the ratings can be low. Nevertheless, I love and enjoyed every episode of this K-Drama. LMH is great as ever, with his usual almost perfect expressive eyes and facial expressions. If there is one actor that does not seem to "act" his role out, it is LMH.

This drama, The King: Eternal Monarch, was so worth the wait! As an older American (nonAsian), about one year ago, I wanted something different and chose Costume drama (1st Chinese) with English subtitles, of course. Finding that most Chinese productions ended sadly, I converted to the happier Korean storylines. I feel like this won’t disappoint. I then came across Lee Min Ho’s cherub faced high schoolers in Boys Over Flowers. I still rewatch scenes and listen to the soundtrack. Everything LMH has starred in, even his concerts, I’ve watched (rewatched) before Eternal Monarch. I , too, eagerly awaited his after-service return. No matter the critics of TKEM or Lee Min Ho, this young man has shown remarkable growth, expression and maturity in his craft which is evident in this series. The lovely cherub face has been restructured to that of a man who would (and does!) make women of all ages swoon! His ability to deliver impassioned expressions with both dramatic, romantic and even comedic effect is thoroughly registering with the audience. I totally disagree that the current ratings reflect the truth to LMH’s talents, completion of character, compatibility of interactions with his coworkers, and grace. Even by Hollywood standards, the extensive, even breathtaking, production/scenery would rivals its competitors. There is no doubt many are awaiting to binge watch and lose themselves to the romance, drama, mystery and intrigue involved in the storyline of The King: Et

But of you just want to relax and not think.. and just feel giddy from romance then just stick with your usual. I have a feeling its the media causing it to fall... get your research right.

The King, Eternal Monarch is very good Drama, but there are few things, which I do not understands such as the King, Lee Gon and King's uncle, Lee Lim realizes the Time pauses when travelling to different world. Then how come Lee Gon did not realize that the time was being paused for the past 25 years, when LeeLim was moving back and forth to different worlds. In other episode Lee Gon realizes there is one more way which LeeLim is using to move back and forth, but we can see in the First episode Lee Lim goes to bamboo forest and goes to another world, and if LeeLim has placed his guards at other entrance then why not at Bamaboo forest, because he was the first one to pass through Bamboo forest. I am not critizing, there are lot more things, which I do not understand. I am great fan of Lee minho, but this kind of things is might cause the ratings to go down.

OMG now i know why there are fanatics... i didnt wanna stop watching and if possible nevee toblink seeing the captivating face of Lee Min Ho and the way he act it gets on my nerve.. ir wouldnt be ao shameful if i am also teary eyed in front of the tele... We Filipinos likes Lee Min Ho and honestly we love this guy he makes our heart melt seeing him crying and lonely to some part of the movie...

I watched alot of Korean Dramas, the King Eternal Monarch is an excellent show. It's very different, you have to stay focus when watching or else you lose the plot. I love both the lead sctactors, Kim Go Eun beautiful and all Natural..South African Fan

Episode 11 was captivating. Live it' Could not wait for 12 to be released. However, 12 was an anti climax. Only reason I'm still watching is because I'm a sucker for a happy ending to a live story.

I want to know what was about that coat she remembers him wearing it when he gave her those flowers and confess to her his love, with tears streaming down his face

I was confused too... But figured this much after reading some comments in twitter.. looks like he'd time travelled and Tae-eul figures that out a little later before she's kidnapped. Also he says that if it seems as if he'd disappeared, he's just walking thru frozen moments of time.. so while they were kissing, time stopped and he had to go away. Probably Lee lim appeared? So when time starts again, she doesn't see him. Also when he came to see her, there is great anguish, sadness n anxiety on his face. Something must have happened that he travels back in time to see her wearing his "glorious day" suit .. :(

This fiction and historical drama at the same time is not perfect, but I love its plot. But as usual, KOREANS are not the best in supporting their actors. They are critical and usually destructive. Let many more dramas come, and don't count the national rating!!

I LOVE THIS DRAMA. Its one of the best drama I've ever watched. And trust me till date I've watched more than 100 Kdramas. The plot is different and writer has been able to explain the situation. However, one can't understand the drama if they watch it from the midway. A story about parallel universe.. What more do we need! I would like to thank the writer, director and the lovely cast for making this drama insanely good. I get goosebumps in every episode ❤❤❤❤❤❤

What do i think, and the majority maybe, of the last two and the rest of the episodes? Great. This drama may not be perfect in terms of plot, technicalities, etc. But it is enjoyable. It is a lovely feeling to watch it. Are we film or drama students who would scrutinize every bit of it like you do? Ratings could have flaws. They may not be representative of the rest of the world.
