The King: Eternal Monarch is a romantic K-drama that set a record for SBS’s highest 2020 Friday-Saturday drama premiere rating. In addition, it was listed as the most popular Korean drama series on Netflix in India, Malaysia, the Philippines and Singapore and was one of the top two in the US.
The King: Eternal Monarch Season 2 starring Lee Min-ho and Kim Go-un may not be officially renewed or confirmed, but viewers of the South Korean series are sure it will return in the future.
In addition, fans of The King: Eternal Monarch started a petition for Part 2. Many believe that The King: Eternal Monarch Season 2 is delayed due to the global pandemic, which has ravaged the entertainment industry around the world with almost all of its financial losses.
But, as per the current scenario, the chances of renewal of The King: Eternal Monarch Season 2 are slim. Firstly, the first season didn’t leave cliffhangers for the second season. Secondly, most K-dramas do not get renewed for a second season, and producers try to complete the story in one season. The King Eternal Monarch Season 1 ended on a happy note, where Lee Gon and Jang Tae Eel ended happily together.
The King: Eternal Monarch Synopsis:
Lee Gon, a modern emperor of the Kingdom of Korea, attempts to cross the barrier in an alternate reality where the Republic of Korea exists in place of the kingdom. He meets detective Jang Tae-ul, whom he recognizes from an identity card obtained during the turning point of his childhood: the murder of his father. Lee Gon’s step-uncle, Lee Lim, who had murdered the previous king, Lee Ho (Lee Gon’s father), is in hiding and gathering armies while going back and forth between two parallel worlds.
Although Netflix hasn’t approved The King: Eternal Monarch Season 2 yet, if the K-drama returns in the future, we can expect the following cast: Lee Min-ho Lee Gon / Lee Ji-hun , Jang Hyeon-joon as Young Lee Gon, Kim Go-un as Jung Tae-il/Luna, Woo Doo-hwan as Jo Eun-seob/Jo Yeon, Kim Kyung-nam as Kang Shin -ja, Jang Eun-chee as Gu Seo-kyung / Gu Eun-e, and Lee Jung-jin as Lee Lim.
