Kim Go-eun makes drama comeback in The King: Eternal Ruler with Lee Min-ho

After focusing on films for the last few years, Kim Go-eun (The Lonely Shining Goblin) has confirmed she will be returning to dramaland, to star in writer Kim Eun-sook’s new drama The King: Eternal Ruler alongside Lee Min-ho (Legend of the Blue Sea). Similar to Lee Min-ho, who previously worked with writer Kim Eun-sook on Heirs, this will be Kim Go-eun’s second time working with the writer as well – the first time being The Lonely Shining Goblin.

In The King: Eternal Ruler, the story is a fantasy romance involving two different Koreas in parallel dimensions. In one universe, Korea is the republican state that we are familiar with as “real.” In the other, Korea is an imperial state ruled by a monarchy. However, the problem lies in the fact that there’s a gateway between these two worlds and if–or how–it should be closed.

Against this backdrop, Kim Go-eun will be playing two roles which are different versions of her character in each parallel universe. In the Republic of Korea, she is police officer Jung Tae-eul who fights to protect people and her loved ones. In the parallel world of the Empire of Korea, Kim Go-eun’s character is a criminal named Luna who is lives on the bottom rung of the social ladder and leads a difficult life as a result.

The King: Eternal Ruler is currently set to commence filming towards the end of the year and is being planned to air in the early half of 2020.

This is a KES drama no female lead ever acts circles around the male lead in a KES drama. Even KTR couldn't out act LBH because KES hero worships all her male leads.

Triple whammy for me: I don't like anything the screenwriter has done (inc Goblin), I don't like Lee Min ho's acting and I cannot stand Kim Go eun (not the real person in real life but as an actor).
So it's a huge "NO" for me.

It's going to be a messy love triangle. Reminds me of Good Olivia and Bad Olivia from Fringe. I skipped those episodes, so i'm definitely not a fan of this trope.

On a different note, has KES done time travel before?

Its not time travel its a parallel multiverse. Both timelines are placed in the present tense from what I've understood. The only difference is in their realities. One Korea is Republic the other is Monarchy like they had in Goong.

(3) LMH and bad KGE had a kid together when good KGE gone/kidnapped.

She is always unlucky choosing male leads counterpart (I must be the only one who think that) they are either always 1 decade apart, or the script is not allowing for creating a good chemistry) I hope the pairing will work for her this time. But I'm not too sure.

I kindly wish her drama comeback will something like IU did in My Ajusshi, or be in female centric drama. Well I expecting too much after all. Wecome back Go Eun.

She can do better. She has a good range. Despite hating her in Goblin, her CITT performance is still my favorite to the extent that i can forgo Goblin because I know she has got the potential. But maybe KES is doing a redemption arc for dooming both of them. KWB stile all the spotlight from LMH and KGE was so cringey in Goblin, she gained nothing from that show too maybe a few CF's but LDW and GY took way more popularity and CF's.

I'm sad about this. I despised Goblin with the heat of 1000 suns. I also refuse to watch anything Kim Eun Sook does after Goblin, but I actually liked her acting in Goblin, it was the drama that was trash. Hopefully her next drama comeback will be in something not by Kim Eun Sook.

I hated her in Goblin, but maybe it was the chirpy high schooler she had to play. Commenters here seem to like her acting, so what has she been in that isn't a chirpy teen? Maybe I'll give some other drama she's in a chance.
I didn't like her in Memories of the Sword either...

Coin Locker Girl: She's gritty and not at all chirpy in that role.
Cheese in the Trap: Again, not a chirpy teen.
Eungyo: Her breakout role. Probably why she is so respected as an actress. Beware of nudity and sex scenes here (don't watch it on a plane--no one warned me!). She's also a teen, but her vibe is totally different here than in Goblin.

I'm one that thinks she is amazing. Every character is different, even if they are the same age.

Kim Go Eun is a really fantastic actress. She was wasted in Goblin! She played Hong-Seol perfectly. I’ve seen a lot of her works and noticed Goblin is the only hitch in her resume and it wasn’t her fault - the character sucked and it’s obvious KES never puts much thought into writing her female characters.

Goblin was a complete KGE turnoff. I kind of hate watched her in that because I still held on hope that she will act somewhat normally or like what she did in CITT, provided she was the one I was watching the show for, never liked GY, LDW or YIA.

She’s a lot more impressive in just about every other role she’s been in.

I liked her in Cheese, didn't like her high-pitched girly voice in Goblin, was indifferent to the leads, loved the second leads, who I thought had way, way more chemistry than the main leads.

Her next drama comeback might not be for another 3 years if this one turns out to be another hit. Even if she does comeback it might be with another star writer like the one who wrote LOTBS which I doubt will be a big improvement.

Huh? Just when I thought how nice it would be for Kim Go Eun to make a drama come back. But after I read who will write and who will direct....yeah no. No thank you. Now I'm slightly sad because honestly Kim Go Eun can act and perform a decent role, the problem seems to be to me that she seems to be stuck with dramas that I find to be so lackluster (Cheese on the trap).
Either it is because she has no luck when it comes to dramas or that just me. But I prefer watching her movies such as "A muse", or "Coin locker girl"where it shows that she has talent.

Hi!
Kim Go-eun is one of few actresses that really impressed me. She acted so natural as Eun Gyo in the movie "A muse" it was amazing that was her first movie. I think she has potential to do better if as you said correctly with the other screen-writers such as Park Kyung-soo or Park Yeon-seon, or if I might add Lee Woo-jung.

Maybe I am naive but I genuinely think this is super news! She’s a great actress and playing two roles is an actor testβ€”either they wow you or... very much fail to do so.

If I was KES, and I sadly am not, I’d be giving her the lion’s share of the work to do with the dual roles. I might kill one of the Lee Min Hos early (after making him awesome! Amazing warrior king goes down and they think all is lost... until a double appears...) Demon fighter street ruffian KGE, allied with the noble king, suddenly has to deal with a clueless impostor and mould him to her will in order to win her fight, even while cop KGE tries to get her partner back or understand why he’s hardly around and acting loopy or (if the king isn’t dead) has to cope with hilarious fish out of water ancient king in her world.

Even if LMH gets the lions share, she’s an asset! And he’s always much better with an actress bringing real spark. (Park Min Young, for instance.) And he’s not horribly older than her! (I know, the bar’s on the ground. I actually liked the Goblin pairing but was super skeeved by Mr Sunshine.) I think they could be good together! Dual roles for a great talented lady I have missed, in an epic big budget fantasy adventure! Yay!

I am curious about the rest of the cast, as KES usually gathers a great supporting lot. I’d be very happy to see Seo Kang Joon reunite with KGE, but I’m sure I’ll be surprised. (If they are set on doing repeats perhaps Byun Yo Han will be back...)

I think KES writes the first few episodes pretty well. The issue is with the middle. She was less cringey in Mr Sunshine. But the middle part was still weak. All the time I waited for the story to progress made me eventually quit it. And I think that is what will continue this time too. I hate investing time on her thinking there will be an improvement but it's always the same.

I left before all the action started in the last few episodes because i was tired of waiting.

I loved her so much in Cheese. I loved her natural beauty and her understated acting. I loved the quietness of her voice and everything about her in that drama. Goblin was so frustrating for me, because she was someone I didn't recognise anymore, from the shrillness of her voice to the little-girl cuteness. It was just painful to watch her. In retrospect, it was because her Seol in Cheese was so precious, that I couldn't bear to see her act as anyone else. So it was unfair of me to feel frustrated, and disappointed with her character in Goblin. She's a great actress, and I think that if I hadn't seen Cheese, I would have been fine with her character in Goblin.

I first watched her in Cheese in the Trap and she had no chemistry with the male lead, and then I watched her in Goblin and she had (shields myself) no chemistry with Gong-yoo. At all. And I cannot even imagine her with LMH. . . . She just doesn't have a very romantic image. It's such a shame.

Kim Go Eun, Jun Ji Hyun, and Song Joong Ki- the three actors I want for them to tackle challenging roles on small screen. I have always seen something in them, that when they meet the character that is made for them, it would be truly phenomenal.
Unfortunately they are the very same actors that took popular blockbuster characters that didn't showcase their full potential in small screen. Now I'm sad, because I rarely watch Korean movies, Kdrama is my primary feeding ground of their works.

Wow, never knew there are a lot of people who didnt like Goblin until i read this comment section. KES isnt really great as a writer, but Goblin is my favorite work from her, and it even made it to my own All Time Best Five list. There is nothing wrong with KGE's acting as Eun Tak, she did it really good, tho her character writing didnt serve justice it deserved. For me KES's drama is more like a hit and miss game. It always become a hit with a twist that there are many miss in there. Finger crossing to whatever she will write for KGE's double character, but I'm hopeful KGE will act it as perfect as usual. Tho cant say the same about LMH, he surely is an eye-candy but his acting is too average in everything.
This is one pairing i know i never need, but in dramagod's power, will happen.

Errr...we are talking about the portal to connect the universes. We said nothing about their acting 😢.

Aja aja! Hwaiting, @yyishere YY!!! From geographic feature to Hyun Bin's dogtags -- and now an invisible portal connecting universes. This won't be no glowing crack in the space-time continuum (with apologies to DR. WHO).

If it can't be seen, how will we know when someone traverses the portal? Maybe via sounds? Will you be working with the foley guys from OH HAE YOUNG AGAIN? That would be thrilling.

Dang after reading the comments, am I the only one who actually liked Goblin? I mean yeah there were bits and pieces of it that was like meh, but overall it might be one of my favorite dramas. That's why I'm also probably the only one who's looking forward to this as well XDDD

I personally loved Goblin. Probably one of the few dramas done by her that I did really like.

I liked goblin to some extent. Gong Yoo was amazing in it. Lee Dong Wook's Wang Yeo arc was my fave part. It was my first time seeing dark, dishelved LDW. It was a moment to remember. Haha. And the bickering between Goblin and grim reaper and their kid butler was fun.

The crying scenes were so sad in Goblin. Eg: when goblin disseappeared, when Euntak died, when kid Euntak discovered her mum died, when sunny broke up with grim reap etc2...

You are not alone. I liked Goblin very much and the fact that the writer came up with such an interesting story makes me to want more from her. The acting was great, gorgeous actors, music, .. everything was fine for me.

I liked it. I didnt live watch it, but watched it over one cold winter. I thought it was a great watch for that.

I'm surprised by all the negative comments about Kim Go Eun. I thought she did an excellent job in both Cheese in the Trap and Goblin. She has a natural talent so I personally think this is awesome news.

I just wish there was a different lead. I think Ju Ji-hoon would have been awesome in this role.

Overall the premise sounds really fun and I'll definitely give this a try. I think Kim Eun-sook is pretty hit and miss for me (I loved Goblin and Secret Garden) but she definitely knows how to write hit dramas.

Its funny reading these posts. apparently Goblin, the most popular Korean cable drama ever until 'SKY Castle', was somehow a horrible series with awful actors worthy of hate.

Exactly. Everyone of them doesnt like goblin. That's pure nonsense. I loved goblin. The only problem I had with it was the way KGE played euntak. It was over the top. The other leads did an amazing Job. GY,LDW and YIN

I don't think people are attacking the acting as much as people think. There's quite a lot of KGE love in here. LMH has always been a polarising actor on Dramabeans, so that's nothing new. It's the writing of Goblin I see more people hung up on. KES might be very popular, but that doesn't mean she's a writer without fault or criticism and for some people her writing is enough of a turn off for Goblin and any of her shows.

I haven't seen Goblin, but just because something is nationally or internationally popular, doesn't mean it's necessarily always good.

Beanies have always had strong opinions when it comes to casting and crew choices for certain dramas, especially for big things like this. It's kind of just inevitable that this post would have a thread like this at this point.

wow wow wow we are all so passionate about this one. i haven't seen Goblin, or anything KGE has been in actually, but I feel like I'd like her (I am very scientific y'all). I'm generally meh for LMH, but in the wise words of @mary: "let's have Faith." I will be watching just for that possibility ;)

I think that Lee Min-ho made a huge mistake choosing Heirs. He really didn't look like a high school student and his character was written terribly. However I think he redeemed himself in LOTBS. I really enjoyed his performance. I haven't watched Kim Go-eun's work yet but sounds like shes great. Their ages being close will help in my opinion. So she played a high school student too? KES should really cast actors that fall in the age group for school going characters.
