Filming for SBS’s “The King: Eternal Monarch” has officially come to an end!

On May 29, production company Hwa & Dam Pictures announced that with just four episodes left in its run, the fantasy romance drama had finally wrapped up filming.


The company stated, “Filming [for ‘The King: Eternal Monarch’], which began in October of last year and continued over eight months, was completed on May 28.  We would like to thank the cast and crew, who did their very best for the new and different parallel-universe fantasy romance ‘The King: Eternal Monarch,’ one more time for their toil.”

Hwa & Dam Pictures went on, “The drama’s unpredictable and endlessly eventful story will continue to unfold in the remaining four episodes. Please stay tuned until the very end.”

“The King: Eternal Monarch” first began filming in North Chungcheong Province in October 2019, and after eight long months, the drama wrapped up its final shoot with Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun on May 28.


SBS also announced that the series finale of “The King: Eternal Monarch” will air on June 12. (As previously reported, the drama will not air in its usual time slot on Friday, May 29, meaning that the next episode will air on Saturday, May 30 instead. The following two episodes will air on June 5 and June 6 as usual.)
