The King: Eternal Monarch Episode 3 Preview
New stills for the episode have been released, and in these pictures, we get to see Kim Go Eun and Lee Min Ho having an argument of some sort. The drama has released stills from the upcoming episode where we can see Emperor Lee Gon (played by Lee Min Ho) and detective Jung Tae Eul (played by Kim Go Eun) meeting each other for the second time. He is taken to a police station, and Jung Tae Eul tries to figure out where he came from and what his identity is. Emperor Lee Gon keeps a calmness that is befitting of a king even while being interrogated, and Jung Tae Eul does her best in figuring him out.
Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun shot this scene back in February, according to Soompi, and they were very lively during the scene and brought a lot of energy to the set.
