Kim Go Eun Confirmed To Appear On New Drama With Lee Min Ho

The male and female lead roles are now confirmed.

Actress Kim Go Eun has been confirmed to appear on Kim Eun Sook‘s (writer for The Heirs) newest work, The King: Forever the Monarch alongside Lee Min Ho.

The King: Forever the Monarch represents a fantasy romance drama that crosses in between the parallel worlds of South Korea and the Korean Empire and Kim Go Eun will challenge herself to a double role with a South Korean detective, Jeong Tae Eul, and a character called Luna, who lives a low life as a criminal of the Korean Empire.

Studio Dragon Corporation stated that Kim Go Eun’s extraordinary acting on Goblin was part of the reason they cast her for this new role.

Acting for extreme characters like a detective and criminal is not an easy task. Looking at the way she interpreted characters in various films and the natural acting she showed in the growth of a girl to a woman in Goblin, we judged that if it were the broad acting skills of Kim Go Eun, she’d be able to sucessfully take on Jeong Tae Eul and Luna’s double role.

The King: Forever the Monarch will deal with the idea of parallel worlds, an idea that is rarely seen in dramas today. A god set a devil free in the human world, which opened up a door to the parallel world.

The drama, which has now confirmed its male and female lead roles, is expected to begin filming in the latter half of this year and begin airing in the first half of 2020.
