The King: Eternal Monarch kept viewers on the edge of their seats with several suspenseful moments. Episode 10 will probably continue to maintain the pace as it reveals new details about the rivalry between Emperor Lee Gon and his uncle Lee Lim. The episode will air on SBS Saturday, May 16, at 10 p.m. KST.
The real battle between the King and his father's killer has begun. Until now, Lee Lim was silently making his move in front of his nephew. The young King was unaware of the things that were happening in his country. Thanks to detective Jung Tae Eul, Lee Gon finally found out how his uncle was making all the moves secretly.
Jung Tae Eul Explains it All
It all began with a casual conversation between Lee Min Ho's character and his detective girlfriend. While discussing the imaginary flower she bought from the Kingdom of Corea and the mysterious place she visited with her boyfriend, Kim Go Eun's character playfully told her lover that he keeps himself young by visiting the mysterious place often.
When Lee Gon was unable to find traces of his uncle in the country even after checking the security footage multiple times, he remembered the words of his girlfriend. He knew that his uncle was traveling between the two worlds for several years, but no one identified him. It is because he was never aged after the incident.
All this while, the King was looking for a man in his 70s and he could not find someone like that in both the worlds. Finally, he met the person he was searching for in the Kingdom of Corea on New Year's Eve. Lee Gon was surprised to see Lee Lim, who was not aged at all in the last 25 years. As soon as the King identified his uncle, he angrily shouted traitor Lee Lim.

However, Lee Min Ho's character was in a very dangerous situation when he met his rival. He was all alone on the street as he did not accompany his security persons with him. Jo Young is in the Republic of Korea while Jo Eun Sup is with the King.
On the other hand, Lee Lim was waiting for this encounter and he was all prepared. He was purposely walking in front of the King. So, what's next for Lee Gon? Viewers of the SBS fantasy thriller will have to watch the next episode to find out how Lee Lim reacts to his first meeting with the King in the last 25 years.
