Emperor Lee Gon had a tough time explaining to Detective Jung Tae Eul that he belongs to a parallel universe. He tried out every possible way to make her believe the existence of a similar universe.

The DNA Report and a showdown with the gangsters

The DNA report of Lee Min Ho's character came with a surprising turn in the story. At least for a few seconds after thoroughly going through the report, Kim Go Eun's character thought of believing everything the Emperor told her. The detective also spent some time with Lee Gon to dig some details about his real identity and her efforts went in vain.

At that night, Lee Gon experienced some kind of bodily pain and it was like certain type of abnormal signals from supernatural powers. In the next morning also the King saw strange things happening around him as everything surrounding him stopped moving for a few seconds. Though he assumed that it was an aftermath of entering a different world, he was unable to draw a proper conclusion about it.

Episode 3 of The King: Eternal Monarch also featured a showdown between Lee Gon and a group of gangsters. The Emperor was really happy to show-off his fighting skills to Detective Jung Tae Eul and her friend Kang Shin Jae. However, they did not really pay attention to the King and he took that opportunity to go back home.
