'The King: Eternal Monarch' Episode 13 promo sees Lee Gon and Tae-eul's world collide as Luna kisses Shin-jae
The promo for 'The King: Eternal Monarch' Episode 13 reiterates that the distance between King Lee Gon and Detective Jang Tae-eul is only growing with time
'The King: Eternal Monarch' Episode 12 ended on a shocking note after revealing that both Prime Minister Koo Seo-ryeong and Court Lady Noh were both travelers of the two worlds. In addition, the promo of episode 13 continues to keep us guessing about the direction that Lee Gon (Lee Min-ho) and Tae-eul's (Kim Go-eun) life will take in the future. For instance, we see how Jo Yeong is worried about Lee Gon because of his growing feelings for Tae-eul. The two of them are from completely different worlds and for their love to succeed one of them has to sacrifice in a huge way.
Then we also see Lee Lim finally come face to face with Kang Shin-jae who happens to be Jang Tae-eul's partner in Seoul Police Department. He was brought over by Lee Lim when he was a child, however, the reason why his mother had abandoned him is still unknown. Now that Lee Lim has met Shin-jae (Kim Kyung-nam), will the detective get the answers that have been running in his mind? Also, will Lee Lim convince Shin-jae to become an ally in the fight for the powerful piece of flute?
It looks like Shin-jae's mind will be manipulated with Luna's help. The woman from Lee Gon's world who has the same face as Tae-eul has successfully traveled over to Tae-eul's world and if we go by the promo she even kisses him, which definitely shocks Shin-jae but how this would change his opinion is something that we would have to wait and see.
And finally, it looks like Luna and Tae-eul may just meet each other if things go according to the detective's plan. For now, Tae-eul speaks to Luna over the phone and asks her alter ego to meet with her. Luna, however, doesn't agree and in fact notes that if the two were to meet anytime soon, it might result in Tae-eul's death. Is it because Luna is still on Lee Lim's side.
It seemed as if she double-crossed Lee Lim when she stole his money from his place and left without a word. However, this might not be the case. Or she might really be the trump card on Lee Gon's side who will help him win the war. With the time freeze increasing by minutes every time Lee Lim brings over a new person, Lee Gon doesn't have too much time to waste.
'The King: Eternal Monarch' is originally aired in South Korea on SBS at 10 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. The show can be streamed on Netflix in the US.
