The Thing is that ''The King: Eternal Monarch'' Is double airing simultaneously on 2 platforms at the same time and this is the second time a drama has ever done this before.. It's simultaneously on Netflix and SBS Channel. While most younger generation view thru Netlfix Korea library where as the older generations opt for TV.

The King: Eternal Monarch doing these numbers is something to behold despite being on the same time on 2 platforms such as Netflix and SBS airing simultaneously across each other. The only other Drama that did this way of airing things is another KES drama Mr.Sunshine it was not as successful as The King: Eternal Monarch internationally tho but now you can see the clear picture.

It's actully doing great numbers if you measured objectively. You just can't judge a tv-show that is literally running on 2 crowded platforms at the same time and measure one of it. If the Korea Netflix and SBS numbers you would get the clear picture

I liked TWOTM but then people pointed out that the story was the exact same as this British TV series called Dr Foster. And it is! It's pretty much exactly the same, bar names, and that's killed off the hype I had for it, and now I feel disappointed. The King is picking up pace with the storyline. First 2 episodes were slow but I think it'll pick up from now.
