The King: Eternal Monarch fans have been speculating about a royal wedding of Emperor Lee Gon and Detective Jung Tae Eul for the past couple of weeks. Now, the promo for episode 9 also teased the beginning of a new life for Lee Min Ho's character and his onscreen partner in the Kingdom of Corea.
The 30-second-long video clip shows Kim Go Eun's character telling the King that she pretended to be okay in front of him, but she is not really ok. In the promo video, Prime Minister Koo Seo Ryeong can also be seen asking the King about his marriage. The clip ends by featuring a conversation between Lee Gon and Tae Eul, in which the King asks his detective lover if she can stay with him in his world.
In short, the King wants to take his lady love to the Kingdom of Corea and protect her from his uncle Lee Lim. But it remains to be seen if the detective will happily follow Lee Gon and stay in the palace as his queen for the rest of her life. Even if she agrees to be with him, she will have to deal with many rivals in and out of the palace.
