Lee Min-ho is back with a love story that defies universes in 'The King: Eternal Monarch'

Lee Min-ho is back to set hearts aflutter.

The Korean actor will be starring in a new heart-wrenching, universe-defying love story in Netflix, titled "The King: Eternal Monarch."

Netflix has just dropped the trailer and it's already got fans hyped.


Starring alongside Kim Go-eun from "Goblin", Lee will play the role of King Lee Gon, who seeks to seal the gate between two parallel universes. He meets Kim's character who simply wants to protect the lives of other people.

In the trailer, Lee can be seen travelling to another universe and asking Kim to go with him.


The romantic fantasy drama, set to premiere on Netflix this April, is written by the writer of "Goblin" and "Descendants of the Sun," Kim Eun-suk!

Directed by Baek Sang-hoon and Jeong Jee-hyun, the series will also star Woo Do-hwan, Kim Kyung-nam, and Jung Eun-chae.

The last time Lee appeared in a drama series was back in 2016 in "Legend of the Blue Sea," a story about a mermaid from the Joseon period who finds herself in present-day Seoul and meets a man she may have known in her past. This too can still be binge-watched on Netflix!

Aside from the anticipated "The King: Eternal Monarch", other K-drama titles such as "Rugal," "Extracurricular," "Time to Hunt," and "It's Okay to Not be Okay," is set to premiere on Netflix in the upcoming months.
