One of the popular K-dramas of 2020 had to be The King: Eternal Monarch which starred  Lee Min-ho, Kim Go-eun and Woo Do-hwan. The Kim Eun-sook written series marked Min-ho's successful return since his military enlistment. While the viewership wasn't that great, the show still found a loyal fan following thanks to Min-ho's charming act as Lee Gon, ruler of the Kingdom of Corea. Moreover, it was also his chemistry with Go-eun which fans just couldn't get enough of!

In an April interview with CLEO, the 33-year-old actor was asked what made The King: Eternal Monarch different from his other popular K-dramas, say like Boys Over Flowers and The Heirs. Talking about his past projects, Min-ho noted, "If I look at the work I have done in my 20s, I think that the characters I’ve played in a way is like a boyish character and it is a coming-of-age story portrayed by a boyish character."

Furthermore, talking about what set The King: Eternal Monarch apart from his other works, Min-ho added to CLEO, "However as for the role I play in this project, it is a more mature adult and of course, it does have the growth aspect of it but he is already a grown figure and also has a great burden on his shoulders so I would say that is the major difference."

LMH’s acting in TKEM has shown maturity over his previous dramas. Very appropriate as he matures in age. He has grown as an actor. I hope his fans will also grow with him.

Compared to his previous acting on the small screen, his acting in TKEM had really improved a lot. It’s way much better than his previous ones. Way to go Lee Min Ho! I hope he can win an award, he deserves it.
