'The King: Eternal Monarch' Episode 9 Preview: Lee Gon asks Tae-eul to live with him in his world
'The King: Eternal Monarch' Episode 9 will see Lee Gon try his best to ensure that everyone that he loves is safe while he moves closer to Lee Lim. The promo of the upcoming episode was released and there are quite a few hints about what happens in Tae-eul and Lee Gon's worlds. First, we see Shin-jae trying to come to terms with the fact that he was originally a citizen of the Kingdom of Corea who was brought over to the Republic of Korea with Lee Lim's help. It seems as if he has figured out why he had to be brought over to this world, but will this put him on Lee Lim's side or Lee Gon's side?
Then there is the matter of Jo Yeong and Jo Eun-seop. Lee Gon wants Jo Yeong to stay back in Tae-eul's world to make sure that he can find more details about Lee Lim. However, at this time, Eun-seop who looks exactly like Jo Yeong will have to be dealt with. From the promo, it seems as if the two will take each other's place. It becomes especially clear when Myeong Na-ri, the coffee shop owner finds Eun-seop's behavior strange.
As all of this continues to happen around Lee Gon and Tae-eul, the two of them have to figure out a feasible way to make their relationship work. The two have just about managed to figure out a way to spend a few hours at a time, but the situation right now is not in the favor of the king or the detective. For one, Lee Gon still has to deal with Tae-eul look-alike Luna in his part of the world. Now that Prime Minister Koo Seo-ryeong (Jung Eun-chae) has also met Luna, things have just got a lot more messier than Lee Gon had initially expected it to be.
Now that Seo-ryeong knows that Luna is a criminal and also knows that Lee Gon likes a woman who looks like Luna, she is only going to work harder to get Tae-eul out to move out of her way. Since the moment she was chosen to serve as the Prime Minister to date, she has aimed to become Lee Gon's queen and has always tried to impress him. Lee Gon too had used the publicity that he had received from all the media attention that speculation about his relationship with her had gathered.
Now though, he has to put a stop to all of this. It is possibly because of all the obstacles that he had faced that Lee Gon decides to ask Tae-eul if it isn't possible for her to live with him in his world.
'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.
