‘The King: Eternal Monarch’ episode 13 not airing tonight

The newest episode of “The King: Eternal Monarch” won’t be airing on Netflix tonight, May 29.

Lee Min-ho’s hit series on the online streaming platform releases its new episodes every Friday and Saturday.

However, Netflix confirmed that Episode 13 would be out on Saturday, May 30, at 11:30 p.m. (KST).

According to Netflix, the new episode won’t be available tonight because SBS, the South Korean broadcast network producing TKEM, will air a “special COVID-19 broadcast” in its place.

According to Soompi’s report on Thursday, SBS will air the 2011 pandemic film “Contagion” instead. 


Despite the delay, Netflix assured the viewers that the regular release schedule will apply next week until the finale.

“The King: Eternal Monarch” is a Korean drama series about two star-crossed lovers from parallel universes: Emperor Lee Gon from a Korea that is run as a constitutional monarchy and Jung Tae-eul from present-day South Korea. – Kaela Malig/RC, GMA News
