Iâm thinking the future changed at some point because the flowers disappeared. Tae-eul wakes up in the middle of the bamboo forest with a bloody coat and a gun — she doesn’t remember the date but someone confirms she’s in the Republic of Korea and it is April 25, 2020. It has been a wonderful, lovely and adventurous journey with The King! There were many negative reviews from the start, even about the ending, so itâs best that you see it for yourself and get you own conclusions. how do they live out their lives just meeting on weekends and still hiding her. Basically Tae Eul police nametag can be classified as bootstrap paradox item. In an alternate ending, I’m imagining Tae-Eul wandering the streets where she met LG for the first time, still teary-eyed and wistful, when a grown Ji-hun walks by. Netflixâs latest K-drama, The King: Eternal Monarch, premiered last Friday, April 17, and quickly took the #1 spot on Netflix Philippinesâ Top 10 list. I believe most people commenting how disappointed they are of the finale are still stuck in a Filipino plot. Honestly this series is like a 7.5/10. 1. Who is the yoyo boy, like really??? Minecraft Dungeons review – Mojang’s spritely dungeon crawler strikes a vein, Maneater review – something to get your teeth into, Hellblazer #12 review – Constantine’s last stand, Earth at Night in Color season 1 review – a spectacular and breathtaking look at animals’ nocturnal lives, Becoming You review – Apple TV+’s docuseries has too light of a touch, Godmothered review – Enchanted + Elf = Godmothered, Soul review – a tender nature, some sweet laughs, and an even kinder heart. Lee Lim picks up the full Manpasikjeok and Lee Gon’s half disappear — the half that Tae-eul has also disappeared. Jo Yeong holds the young Lee Gon and cries. Here he ponders whether to break the string or not. Who would be the successor of the throne? The King: Eternal Monarch episode 16 provides an ultimate twist making it more tragic for Tae-eul, who remembers Lee Gon and everything that had happened — it seems the boy with the yo-yo decided to break it a little. Hyeon-Min is still alive and in the police force while Luna is now working as a police officer. 'The King: Eternal Monarch' has come to an end with an unexpected outcome. Also, LG searched the universe for her (as he promised he would) because even though there were so many different versions of LTE, there is only one that he’s in love with. I do wish Tae-Eul and Lee Gon could have lived together as a married couple with children. But overall its a great drama, one of the best this year ^^. She visits an imprisoned Koo who happens to be the half-sister of Luna. I was excited I watched first episode couldn’t get any of the thing and stopped their and suddenly after 3-4 month I felt like watching it and it just turned out amazing. Well here we are guys. The second time he is there quite early (he remarks that it will be at least 20 minutes before the traitors arrive at the gate) and presumably the confrontation between the king and LL is still going on. In Corea 2022 time seems to have course-corrected itself. LG called Tae Eul the âfuture queenâ big fail after taking your army to do battle for the woman you loveâ¦. 1. the king never got married? Item which infinitely causing itself to exist. A modern-day Korean emperor passes through a mysterious portal and into a parallel world, â¦ Tae Eulâs response was that an armistice took place creating North & South Korea. Meanwhile, Lee Gon is entering different doors to different worlds trying to find his Tae-eul but he keeps bumping into different versions of her — he’s intensely dedicated to finding her. The couple keeps on visiting different worlds at different times. As I noted elsewhere, this is precisely the kind of genre in KDrama story telling I have problems with, and I dropped the show after two episodes, because I could not buy into the basic trope of multiple realities, past and present, existing simultaneously. Hide Spoilers. After 15 episodes of theories, time jumps and shocking twists and turns it all comes down to this final 75 minute episode. As flowers start blooming in Tae-Eul’s house and the balloons shake and move, time unfreezes in that realm and Lee Lim is hit in the chest with several bullets from Tae-Eul’s gun. âThe King: Eternal Monarchâ aired its 15 th episode a couple of hours ago, and Iâve seen it on Netflix and now I am here to talk about it. After meeting Lee Gon’s Uncle in another time, Tae-Eul hopes they end up in the Joseon period while Lee Gon cheekily shows some leaves and shrugs, “You never know, we might end up in THAT time period,” hinting naughtily at prehistoric times which Tae-Eul certainly doesn’t take too kindly. Only…this time he enters without a mask and with Jo-Young by his side. Koo bemoans her luck though and ironically suggests she should have become the Prime Minister instead. follow us on Twitter and like our Facebook page, The Search review – a horrifying true-crime story will be your next obsession, ‘Black Summer’ Episode 7 – “The Tunnel” | Netflix TV Recap, Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol episode 14 recap – Jun drops a bombshell on Ra-ra, Brotherhood (Irmandade) Season 1 Review: Brazilian Netflix Story Fails To Be Punchy. So pinoy! I loved the whole series except for the last half hour of 16th episode. as she was actually from Korea (coz it was the previous king brought her to Corea). Time is then reset. Then LG fate didnt change that much except for Lee Lim didnt get the flute and left a scar to his neck??? View this post on Instagram A post shared by LEE MIN HO ï¸ KIM GO EUN (@thekingeternalmonarch.drakor) on Jun 11, [â¦] 4. Who was the pregnant lady, (I canât remember her name)? SPOILER: The King Eternal Monarch (THEORY) Okay this is an ending spoiler so if you do not want to be spoiled for the ending then stop reading now. Daniel Hart is the Co-Founder of Ready Steady Cut and has operated as Editor-in-Chief since 2017. With time now rewritten, Lee Gon’s scar fades away too and this means time will flow differently. While it looked like the show would go the bittersweet route and end things with time reset, we actually receive a pretty conclusive and satisfying ending for our protagonists. Lee Min Ho was also great in this drama. I thought about Lee Gon’s responsibility as king. But after seeing ep16, I wasn’t trilled atall. Thought it was cool that Na-Ri foretold his beheading in the palm reading bit, LL thought it had already happened. But the ending was like REALLY?? So there. Yoyo boy is basically just an analogy for a bad fanfic writer. When Sin-jae walks out, his mother runs after him and she accepts Sin-jae as her son as well. Holding on to that note, here’s another flaw: if the children have the same parents in RoK and KoC, it goes to say that the worlds have ‘mirror’ couples too. that’s absurd. As Luna walks out, Koo shouts after her “Koo Seo-gyeong” — (we are not sure what is happening with names here — please clarify in the comments) — perhaps Koo’s mother brought Luna into the family and renamed her? When the flute is made whole again we see he has aged into a teenager. Last weekâs episode looked like it was starting to turn up the heat and boy does The King: Eternal Monarch bring it. I guess they spent too much on the set design, there wasnât anything left for the music budget. This should trigger looping paradox that without any ends. This recap of Netflix Korean series The King: Eternal Monarch season 1, episode 16, the finale, contains spoilers. Yeong was actually my favourite character alongside his counterpart (sorry can’t remember his name right now), and the way he switched characters even down to the tones in their voices, was brilliant. The King: Eternal Monarch: Episode 3 by quirkycase. Like, even if they called it a fate, i wish it should allow more time to showcase their progressing in their love . lol. so what now? Do you think jeong tae eul ended up in corea as a queen? Lady Noh and the palace staff grieve at the death of the King. I was a little disappointed. Tae-eul tries shooting him but guns do not work in the halfway world. whats the yo yo boy represents?how can he be young and teeneger and adult at a same time? Finally tying the loose ends. On the contrary, I think a sad and tragic ending would have made more sense. The finale opens with Luna texting Tae-eul’s father; she’s struggling. 3. What was the purpose of LG leaving the sword right by the door? In 2022, Lee Gon meets Eun-sup and asks if he has got a driver’s license. As you can sew Ok-nam is from another world which was possible why not the King and his lover didnt have a future in the same universe? After giving his faithful companion one final order, Lee Gon charges toward the palace with the Four Tiger Sword. The next time period sees Eun-Sup finally happy, looking suave and dating Na-Ri. In one of the worlds in 2000, Lee Gon wants Tae-eul to meet Prince Buyeong because he raised him. Both Lee Gon and Jung Tae-eul ended up together as they travelled through different eras in history. The King: Eternal Monarch episode 16 presents a tragic scenario — love divided by two worlds. LTE is cool, independant and strong, she doesn’t need to be married and a Queen to have a happy ending. The girl is Luna. In the Republic of Korea 2021 Na-Ri phones Tae-Eul and tells her a man is there looking to sell a horse; that man happens to be Lee Gon. This is a bit long sorry but just of my theories in reply to some of the comments. She stands there and sobs before collapsing to the floor. I need answers!!! Because small Lee Gon receiving Tae Eul police nametag then he is seeking for Tae Eul as grown-up Lee Gon and after he find Tae Eul, He is able in possession of Tae Eul police nametag. © 2020 TheReviewGeek. Luna visits Koo Seo-ryeong in prison; as an assemblywoman, she stole people’s tax. Jo Yeong is hurt from the gunfire — the mission is not going well at this stage. I Was Extremely disappointed in the finale. This drama was so lovely and I loved it every single second. With most of the big plot points explained, it’s only small plot holes that are easy to look past in the wake of this tale. Lee Min-ho is a gorgeous talented actor, but his character was dull, the monotone voice wasnât helpful. What is “that” time period? The episode then moves to the Kingdom of Corea, 2022. It would be a great ending if the King and Tae-Eul got married and be the Queen. Tae-eul is making the same sacrifice as Lee Gon in this war, ensuring that they win at all costs. Tae-eul realizes that Lee Gon succeeded in his mission which means he will not come back — “If our worlds flow different from the present, then I won’t be able to remember you. Tae-eul gets a voicemail from Na-ri who tells her that some man has bought her a horse and he seems professional. Jo Yeong remembers when Lee Gon gave him the Unbreakable Sword and he falls unconscious. Lee Gon tells him he is The Unbreakable Sword — as Lee Gon walks away, we learn that Eun-sup is in a relationship with Na-ri. Many of the other characters are also shown to be alive and living well in their respective worlds after the time reset. Heâs absolutely wonderful when given a decent script, this drama didnât have a fighting chance and the chemistry between the two main characters was flat. Both my favorite actor & actress rocked it! We get to see how different the characters were after the timeline was re-written with the killing of Lee Lim. they should have got married. Loved seeing how everyone’s lives changed and they got what they deserved, whether good or bad. The curtains closed with a happy ending for all the characters (even Luna), except antagonists Lee Rim (Lee Jung-jin) and Seo-ryung (Jung Eun-chae). Lee Gon stands there and assumes that Tae-eul doesn’t recognize him but then he sees her crying and realizes she remembers. With questions unanswered, A season 2 with a perfect reply to every unanswered question would be the best option & would make people satisfied so much. I do not regard traveling from one period of Korea to another Corea as a great ending. Beyond this though, the love story that dominates this Korean drama has been really well written and the way Gon finds Tae-Eul after all that time is a beautiful way to end their epic journey over the weeks. Suggestions are welcomedð¥°ð¥°ð¥°. But all the same, I am a huge LMH fan, so I can scratch that ð. In this video we're gonna have the recent Netflix K-drama The King: Eternal Monarch Ending Explained. It is a bit silly that there are so many different times he could’ve jumped to in order to stop Lee Lim, but I think it needed to be at the time of the attack in order for the flute to even be involved in the timeline, and LG and LTE to have a future. Sin-jae shows his mother her real son and explains what his father did. I watched Boys over Flowers between episodes, I needed the LMH fix. The finale had to give us a final twist and it was a warming one. If he didnt take it with him , he wouldnt go to RoK at the first place and wouldnt remember Tae Eul.. How long did LL leave the umbrella with the Prime Ministerâs mom and more importantly, what was the purpose? I cringed when T kissed LG when he finally found her. Loved every minute of this show. The finale then moves to the Republic of Korea in 2021. 2. ð, Im a bit dissapointed too with this ending eventho its a happy one.. She has her own life (as does he) and they get to go anywhere they want together at the weekend. In one of the worlds they visit, Lee Gon runs the country but he’s a tyrant. Because lets admit it, LG’s focus on killing his uncle for personal vendetta has made him somewhat of a narrow character with nada development. Unlike the bittersweet, tear-jerking ending to Luna, Eternal Monarch by comparison is pretty uplifting, ending things on a really poetic note. And I still tried to do something nice for my dad once a month. The season finale of The King: Eternal Monarch begins withÂ Shin-Jae slumping against the side of the wall following Tae-Eul’s rejection. They make a point of not running into their counterparts. 4. and the king doesn’t have children? Like câmon! Blah, yo-yo boy was like an afterthought to make the plot more interesting. I cant understand some of the events (if u guys know, feel free to fill the gap) The writer needs a course and assistance on how to end a love story. The finale then moves to the Republic of Korea in 1994. SBSâs âThe King: Eternal Monarchâ has come to an end! Weak. Lee Gon realizes he must clear the security footage at the palace. In 1994, Lee Gon calls Lee Lim a traitor and executes him. 3. Every weekend Lee Gon and Tae-eul meet each other in different years to ensure they don’t bump into their counterparts. After a couple of weeks of consideration, I decided to publish a half-way review of âThe King: Eternal Monarch.â Today, Iâm here to discuss the SBS series âThe King: Eternal Monarchâ first half. Unlike the bittersweet, tear-jerking ending to Luna, Eternal Monarch by comparison is pretty uplifting, ending things on a really poetic note.
