SBS to Air Kim Eun Sook’s New Drama The King with Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun in 2020


With the shrinkage of the K-drama airing times, with Mon-Tues getting put on hiatus or made permanent by the big three networks, there will also be fewer events K-dramas as before. The only big drama on deck for 2020 is Kim Eun Sook‘s fantasy romance The King: Eternal Sovereign with leads Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun. Kim Eun Sook’s is reuniting with Lee Min Ho who did her Heirs and Kim Go Eun from Goblin. The drama has now been sold to SBS for television airing, and afterwards distributed across other airing platforms. This seems ripe for a Netflix airing too. The drama is about parallel worlds with Lee Min Ho playing a King in one world trying to close the door between the worlds.
