Netflix take on The King: Eternal Monarch Season 2
The last time we checked, the status was pending regarding the update on the renewal status for The King: Eternal Monarch Season 2 . However, since this k drama is stated to be Netflix (To The Lake) Original, we can expect updates and hikes from the Netflix team, but this isn’t originally produced by them, therefore their say doesn’t add up to it. Studio Dragon (Hotel Del Luna) and Hwa & Dam Pictures and the distributor SBS (Seoul Broadcasting System), are the ultimate production houses of Korean dramas in South Korea, it is up to them to approve for the renewal of season 2 of Eternal Monarch.
The cast gave away some mind-blowing performances throughout the drama which has sufficed the drama to get through even though the critics were rather censorious regarding the plot and structure of the drama. The drama ran into many controversies as they pushed certain unwanted gender stereotypes which upset the drama society. Even though the Republic of Korea in the drama was shown from a modern-day perspective, many Japanese fans had complained of the lookalike to their heritage and complaints were made regarding the disrespect. Some of the netizens blamed the author for repeating the rich man poor girl tropes which enforce cliches and dismisses one’s interest in the suspense. All these couldn’t disrupt the setting of the drama as the episodes made it interesting each week due to the stellar performance of the actors. We would expect the same actors for a comeback as this was the first drama of Lee Min Ho’s after his military discharge.
The King: Eternal Monarch Season 2 Release date
The ratings were really high in other countries out of South Korea, so safe to say that the global audience enjoyed this and could be good enough for a renewal. The King Eternal Monarch Season 1 ended on a happy note where Lee Gon and Jung Tae Eul end happily together, shown through transitions of old age and more . This could be a reason to not end up with season 2 of The King: Eternal Monarch.
