It's been a few weeks since we had to say goodbye to The King: Eternal Monarch. The K-drama, which marked Lee Min-ho's first project since his military enlistment, may not have gotten the ratings one would imagine but nonetheless, fans of the 33-year-old actor were excited to see their favourite star in an intriguing role. We already are aware of Min-ho's acting talent and with The King: Eternal Monarch, we saw a more mature aspect in his performance as Lee Gon, ruler of the Kingdom of Corea.

During an April 2020 interview with CLEO, Min-ho was asked to describe the similarities as well as the differences between himself and his The King: Eternal Monarch character. When it comes to the commonalities, Min-ho pondered over how Lee Gon thinks of the people and the country which lies heavy on his shoulders. The weight of Lee Gon's responsibilities is something way beyond the actor's imagination. Even though it's a lot smaller, the Boys Over Flowers star shared how he too had similar experiences with the fact that he debuted at a very young age and is now in his 13th year as an actor. As his fanbase grows so does the responsibility that is laid on his shoulders.

When it comes to important issues, Min-ho likes to take his time and put in a lot of thought into making that decision. However, once he makes the decision, Min-ho is the type of person to go ahead and push forth with it. Interestingly, Min-ho also confessed that at different times, he can be "witty, playful or easygoing," like Lee Gon.

As for what sets him apart from his character, Min-ho revealed to CLEO, "In terms of the differences, of course relatively, I have the privilege of leading a freer life as well as enjoying the little things in my life compared to my character."

It is only in South Korea TV network that TKEM rating was not as high as expected, but it is a big hit in streaming services around the world. It was #1 most streamed TV show on Netflix in 11 countries and in the Top 10 in 19 other countries. It is now #8 most streamed TV show on Netflix IN THE WORLD since April 2020. We are now in streaming age. Stop judging the rating performance of this show based on obsolete TV network rating in one country.

He has a great chemistry with his every Co actresses but I don't know why I want to see him with park shin hye so badly cuz they are shows different and undeniable chemistry in 'THE HEIRS'. I'm just waiting for the heirs season 2.Its my own opinion.Though he looks great with everyone.

The TKEM series in my opinion is the best of all that Min Ho has ever acted - it is the best I have ever seen. I loved LMH and KGE acting together, there was a lot of chemistry between the couple. I hope there is a second season and that in real life, they are together and happy.
