Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun to star together in new drama
After his discharge from military service, Lee Min Ho has recently confirmed his first post-service project.
He will be teaming up with Kim Go Eun to star in the upcoming drama ‘The King: The Eternal Monarch‘. The drama is being written by Kim Eun Sook who is the screenwriter behind such dramas as ‘Heirs‘, ‘Descendents of the Sun‘, ‘Goblin‘ and ‘Mr Sunshine‘. It is going to be directed by Paek Sang Hoon who also worked on ‘Descendents of the Sun‘.
