What did you personally think of the kiss scene?


  1. The kiss was just right. I wish people would stop over-analyzing “The King: Eternal Monarch” and just enjoy it. I missed Lee Min Ho. He is still the best!

  2. Now I know Korean fans have a very big problem, they are confused. I don’t think they actually know what they want. They just keep complaining like little babies.

  3. On the episode 5 about the kissing scene is not that lovely to look. There is no feelings at all even though she is surprised. I think they need more bonding to make look a like real in love couple. They have to work harder on this.. I hope there is more progress on the next episode..
