The Swoon reacts to The King: Eternal Monarch | SwoonWorthy Ep 1 [ENG SUB]


“Someone you must absolutely meet in life is not your soulmate. It’s your fangirl-mate.”
– Her Private Life (2019)

Meet Jen and Sarah: Friends, colleagues, and fangirls extraordinaire. You may know them as Dramabeans creators javabeans (Sarah) and girlfriday (Jen) where they were resident K-drama expert fans for over 10 years. 

To say Jen and Sarah love K-dramas would be an understatement—they live and breathe K-drama. They’ve been watching, squeeing, and writing about them for as long as they can remember, and you can bet they have lots to talk about.

Expect all things K-drama: recommendations on what to watch, an exclusive look at what goes on behind The Swoon, and first reactions of the hottest K-dramas coming up on Netflix. So laugh, cry, swoon and feel ALL the feelings with your fangirl-mates Jen & Sarah as they celebrate their love of K-dramas with you.

We’re kicking off the series with a premiere watch of Lee Min-ho’s highly anticipated comeback drama THE KING: ETERNAL MONARCH, the latest from hit writer Kim Eun-suk. Jen & Sarah talk about familiar themes across her dramas, magical flutes, majestic white horses, and reasons why they’re excited about this drama!

  2. Your reactions are soooooo real hahaha actually it's my first time watching your video but very interesting^^ hope to see your next video of the king!!!! btw I am a super fan of city hunter ~~~

  3. idk why they didn't give the horse a royal-sounding Korean name… this is about korean government and royalty. why they be using some fancy foreign roman sounding name just to sound fancy?? ugh smh but whatever, no biggie

  4. Everything is pretty with him in it. Wise words has being spoken. But the cinematography of this drama is no joke. Is absolutly beautiful.😍

  5. "I unintentionally got a car" why do those words fill me with Dread?

  8. See the video title: the swoons?
    Saw the pictures: wait- arent they..
    Watching the video: aww ive missed them, their dynamics, reactions, etc

  9. I like Lee Min Ho too, but honestly, I'm here for Kim Go Eun. That girl's awesome, and a really good actress, I'm so glad she's playing a strong character, I'm kind of tired of the Cinderella syndrome.

  10. Yay! Dramabeans queens. Love you two. Thank heavens I watched ep 2 since I was sad that ep 1 was so confusing and draggy that I was planning on not continuing. But then I remembered your advice – always give a drama a couple of episodes before you call it quits.
