We asked Lee Min Ho on how he feels working with Kim Go Eun, he was ecstatic to share the following:
“I knew that I always wanted to have the chance to work with her on screen because I saw her play out many different characters in various works in the past so I was very happy to work with her and onset she really has a variety of charms. Sometimes she will be like an older sister to me but sometimes she can be my younger sister.“
He also added:
“I personally admire the fact that her attitude and mindset she brings to her job, and also in the face of danger she really brings that mindset and mentality and really gets in between or intervenes on the scene. And I think that takes a lot of courage. So that’s what I would say I admire most about her character.”
Lee Min Ho also shared that he received various scripts right after his military enlistment. He also admitted that he contemplated on choosing what script to work on and decided with The King: Eternal Monarch.
The role of the King was one of the reason why he accepted this drama; Lee Min Ho also stated: “I think I was first of all drawn to that and also the character that I was to play had such great power within him.“
