Lee Minho, Kim Goeun try to understand each other's faults and troubles
Trouble in paradise? Surprise individual appears in the ending

[MHN reporter Jung Halim] 'The King: Eternal Monarch' shows first kiss between Lee Minho and Kim Goeun, shows a different scale of the typical 'royal romance'.

Airing May 1st, 'The King: Eternal Monarch' episode 5 garned 8.2% of the ratings in the capital region for the first half, with the second getting 9.3%. With it peaking at 10.5%, it continued its now 5th streak in a row as the show with the highest ratings in its timeslot.

The episode shows Lee Gon (Lee Minho) and Jung Taeeul (Kim Goeun) go together into the  parallel universe 'Korean Empire', and has them emphatize with each other. Jung Taeeul, after entering the royal chamber with Lee Gon, realizes that all the unbelievable things that Lee Gon said were true all along. Lee Gon suddenly receives a disapproving remark from No Oknam (Kim Youngok), and Jung Taeeul finds out that Lee Gon's inner circle know about her. After seeing a young Lee Gon in a photo while waiting for him in his study, she recollects his story about his younger self.

Evening approaches, and Lee Gon brings Jung Taeeul some beer and a meal he cooked himself, saying "I always imagined you coming to my palace. Not like this however." Jung Taeeul complains about the food, and there is some romantic tension between the two, but then No Oknam appears again, having Jung Taeeul head to the guest room. Once there, No Oknam tells her "An unknown entity may harm His Majesty. Keep your curiosity about this world and about His Majesty to yourself and leave," leaving Jung Taeeul in a state of disbelief.

As Jung Taeeul contemplates her situation, Lee Gon enters after avoiding his guards and tells her, "Didn't want to leave you alone and afraid. Trust me. I'm quite normal here," as he tries to relieve her. Embarassed, Jung Taeeul teased him about the lion doll on his keychain. Lee Gon teased her back by saying that the frames in his room are CCTV. Jung Taeeul says "You've never dated anyone right," with Lee Gon retorting that he had. She says, "Want me to guess when? It's now," leaving Lee Gon to only answer "Oh, is this how I should've done it?" and kissed her all of a sudden. He expressed his emotions to her by saying "Try to guess what I proved too. I haven't dated? Or I am dating?"

The next day, Jung Taeeul, in disguise as part of Lee Gon's royal guard, sees him shoot hoops at a basketball court and give a speech at the World Mathematician Competition, leaving her with a different impression of him. Lee Gon soon had to leave to his next event on a helicopter, and so told her to come meet him later at night.

Jung Taeeul went on the CTX, the Corean Train eXpress, to go to the place where her police station once stood, as well as her old house to try to find her mother who died when she was 5 years old, but failed to find any sign of her original life. As she tried to get back to the palace she ran out of transport money, and found that she could not reach the Royal Palace's number, leaving her in a state of panic. However, soon she found a Lee Gon appearing before her in a helicopter, who had turned back after hearing that someone tried to connect to the palace 7 times from Seoul Station. She turns to him, explaining that she came to Seoul because she wanted to meet her mother again.

Just at this moment of connection between the two, we see Koo Seoryeong (Jung Eun Chae) appear, ending the episode with the sudden appearance of a third wheel, raising curiosity on the next episode.

The SBS Drama 'The King: Eternal Monarch' will have its 6th episode broadcast on May 2nd, 10pm KST, and will be released on Netflix soon after.
