The trip to the Kingdom of Corea will probably change the life of Detective Jung Tae Eul forever and episode 5 of The King: Eternal Monarch will mark the beginning of this change, according to the production team. The producers of this fantasy thriller have asked the viewers to stay tuned for the fifth episode to watch the surprising transformation of Kim Go Eun's character.

Unlike most women in both the worlds, the detective was never moved by the good looks or the charming personality of Emperor Lee Gon. Jung Tae Eul was always in search of his real identity and she also wanted to know the reason for him to become so close to her. Though her investigation about him in the Republic of Korea did not help her much, she will get the answers of all her questions in the Kingdom of Corea.

Kim Go Eun's character will be surprised to know that Lee Gon is the King of the Kingdom of Corea, who is loved and respected by the people around him. The detective will get to know more about Lee Min Ho's character after reaching the royal palace. She will be moved by his polite and calm attitude towards her, which will make her regret every moment she was rude to him.
