  6. Most of her roles are challenging, but she’s a very good actress. She has a lovely smile and her beauty is natural, unlike other korean celebrities that looks the same due to plastic surgery. She and Lee Min Ho have the same
    zodiac, no wonder they look so comfortable with each other in the behind the scenes. They look great together ❤

  7. I love Kim Go Eun. She is a brilliant actress, no wonders many Hollywood actors praises and commends her. Kim Go Eun is the type that can portray any roles that will be given to her. Of all her drama shows, my favorite is The King Eternal Monarch with Lee Min Ho. Their loveteam was blown – away and stellar. She was fantastic there 🙂

  8. whoever claims as a fans of LMH and yet is not able to find the beauty of KGE in the acting role she portrays in TKEM is a loser. how can someone support their biases in such a way? even LMH admitted during the press conference of TKEM that working with KGE is a dream come true for him !!!
    you shouldnt be surprised that a lot of people are impressed by KGE acting from KTEM and fell in love with her if not already, instead of LMH.
    Public’s appraisal for LMH acting in the TKEM in undeniably due to the fact that the partner is KGE.
    looking back on his acting in the Heirs is a blatant proof.

  9. Oh you miss half of your life by not watching TKEM drama because you don’t like the actress. But to tell you honestly Kim Go Eun is very pretty in person. A Korean celeb that never undergone any cosmetic surgery just to look pretty or beautiful. Kim Go Eun is not only beautiful but also intelligent lady and multi talented.
