If you’re an OG (original) K-drama lover (check out these best K-dramas of all time), you may have seen popular ones such as Boys Over Flowers and City Hunter, which Lee Min Ho was the leading actors for.
And if you’ve been keeping up on the news surrounding him, you’d know that he had gone to serve his time in the army, temporarily leaving the K-drama scene for two long years. But lucky for you and all the other Min Ho fans, he has completed his military service and returned with The King: Eternal Monarch.
The King: Eternal Monarch is a fantasy drama about two parallel universes— one is a democracy that resembles modern-day Korea as we know it, while the other is an empire ruled by a single monarch.
In order to fight evil and close the door between the two worlds, the ruler of the Korean Empire—Emperor Lee Gon (Min Ho)—joins forces with Jung Tae Eul (Kim Go Eun), a detective who resides in the present-day Republic of Korea.
So how has Min Ho changed since his break? Read the interview below.
