'The King: Eternal Monarch' Episode 7 Promo: Lee Gon will bring Jo Yeong to the other world to meet Tae-eul
'The King: Eternal Monarch' Episode 7 promo is out and it sees Lee Gon (Lee Min-ho) worry about Detective Jang Tae-eul (Kim Go-eun). He asks her if she was alright and if someone had attempted to threaten. Tae-eul is not exactly shocked but she asks him if something like that is also possible. Both of them learned something shocking in the last episode. Tae-eul has connected Lee Gon's world to a crime that she is investigating while Lee Gon has learned that his uncle Lee Lim, who killed the king and committed an act of treason is still alive and well in Tae-eul's world.
Now, Lee Gon seems to actively take steps in finding Lee Lim and killing him. When Tae-eul asks him what she should do were she to see the man, Lee Gon tells her to kill him and adds that it is the "King's Order". Not that his words mean anything in her world, but he does it anyway.
Lee Gon also brings Jo Yeong (Woo Do-hwan) along with him on his journey to the other world this time and we know this because both Lee Gon and Jo Yeong are seen on the back of their horses in the bamboo forest. Then, there is also a scene of Jo Yeong pointing a gun at himself. Meaning, Jo Yeong points his gun at the man who looks like him, and is from the other universe, Jo Eun-seop. He also tells Lee Gon that he won't be able to protect the King here. So Jo Yeong is definitely in for a shocking experience in the upcoming episode.
Lee Gon, however, may not worry about this as he continues to flirt and date Tae-eul. Things had changed between the two of them in the palace after he had kissed her and it is clear that she also missed him because at the end of the last episode, we saw Tae-eul run to him after he returned from the war. Their romance continues while Jo Yeong continues his investigation into Luna.
He seems to have found Luna, the girl that Lee Gon had first followed in his world to chance upon the opening to the other world. He says in the promo that Luna has been found and Lee Gon, who has been assuming and theorizing that like him, Tae-eul also existed only in her world, is shattered. He hasn't investigated himself completely in Tae-eul's world either, so he is not aware that he did exist in Tae-eul's world but it is not too long before Lee Gon finds out the truth about Lee Lim's plans to take over as the king of Lee Gon's world while living in Tae-eul's.
'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.
