The King: Eternal Monarch is coming to an end with episode 16 on Friday, June 12. The finale will reveal if Emperor Lee Gon and Detective Jung Tae Eul can get a happy ending. It will also feature the grown-up version of Lee Ji Eun in the Republic of Korea. The chapter will air on SBS Friday at 10 p.m. KST.

The King of the Kingdom of Corea took the toughest decision of his life in episode 15. He decided to give up on his life and happiness for others. It is because he did not have any other options to save both the worlds. He went back in time again to kill the traitor. But he is not alone this time as the Captain of Royal Guards, Jo Yeong, accompanied him.

Lee Gon's lover Tae Eul is also on her way to help him. She took Lee Lim's Manpasikjeok from detective Kang Shin Jae to go back in time. Though the detective initially refused to help her, he finally gave it to her. He knew that there is no other way to protect the people in both worlds.

The traitor is indeed under Shin Jae's custody, but the detective cannot hold him for more than 48 hours. There is also no law in the Republic of Korea to punish this evil man. Once Lee Lim is set free, he will continue with his evil doings, and there will be no end to it. So, the only way to settle things is by killing him in the past.
