'Goblin's Kim Go Eun confirmed to star alongside Lee Min Ho in new drama series 'The King: The Eternal Monarch'

AKP STAFF

Kim Go Eun from the hit 2017 drama series, 'Goblin' has been confirmed as the lead actress in a new fantasy-romance series, 'The King: The Eternal Monarch'. 

She will be working alongside actor Lee Min Ho, who was announced as the male lead of the drama earlier this month.

The writer of the series, Kim Eun Sook, also wrote the the 2013 drama series, 'Heirs', which also starred Lee Min Ho as the lead male actor, as well as worked on other popular shows such as 'Mr. Sunshine', 'Goblin', and 'Secret Garden'.

'The King' takes place in two parallel worlds and tells the story of the emperor of the Korean empire, Lee Gon (Lee Min Ho), who lives in one of these worlds. A modern-day police detective, Jung Tae Eul (Kim Go Eun) lives in the other. The door between these worlds is one day opened by a demon that is unleashed into the human world.

Kim Go Eun will take on two roles in this drama, a detective and a criminal; and although the actress admits that playing two drastically different roles will be a challenge, the writers are confident that her diverse acting portfolio will help her succeed in playing this role.

'The King: The Eternal Monarch' will air sometime in the later half of 2020.
