    #TheKingEternalMonarch #TheKingEternalMonarchMeme #TheKingEternalMonarchMemes #LeeMinHo #KimGoEun #KimEunSook #더킹영원의군주  #이민호 #김고은 #김은숙

    Explanation:
    The viewer is in the shoes of Tae Eul.
    The screenwriter is in the shoes of Lee Gon.
    The drama spends its time showing scenes in an unknown context.
    Like this scene, at the beginning of the 9th episode.
    The drama usually refuses to give any clear indication that would allow us to understand the context.

  • The King: Eternal Monarch Meme 02 - Unexpected anxiety disorder

    #TheKingEternalMonarch #TheKingEternalMonarchMeme #TheKingEternalMonarchMemes #LeeMinHo #KimGoEun #KimEunSook #더킹영원의군주  #이민호 #김고은 #김은숙
    Explanation:

    It's a very moving scene at the beginning of episode 10.
    Unfortunately, the context is very blurry. The viewers are unable to understand why Tae Eul is suddenly so sad and desperate. It's impossible to relate her behavior to the evolution of the drama's sentimental story.

    Explanation:

    This drama is famous for its abusive product placements, to the point that these scenes end up being funny. Exaggeratedly, there are more product placements than drama. Tae Eul found the drama very disappointing, but was captivated by the much better product placement scenes.
    Note: each shot of this meme contains a product placement. ^^

    Explanation:

    Drama is such a catch-all that exploiting all these themes is unlikely. Lady Noh is the screenwriter's alter-ego, trapping proud viewers who think they're clever in deciphering the drama. This shows that it is a game about a deliberately or awkwardly confused story, rather than a drama that encourages spectator immersion.

  • The King: Eternal Monarch Meme 05 - Rating crisis

    #TheKingEternalMonarch #TheKingEternalMonarchMeme #TheKingEternalMonarchMemes #LeeMinHo #KimGoEun #KimEunSook #더킹영원의군주  #이민호 #김고은 #김은숙
    Explanation:
    Drama actors are sometimes unfairly blamed for the failure of success. The meme suggests that the actors signed their contracts, mainly because of the screenwriter's excellent reputation. We don't know if Kim Go Eun is crying because of the ratings, or if it's because she's performing her scene. Both.

    Explanation:

    Many spectators accuse the drama of proposing a love story much too fast. This makes it difficult to believe in the characters' feelings. To contradict them, I propose here a love story really too fast! But perhaps they will also find that it sums up the drama, which ends on the meme during the cliffhanger of the first episode.

  • The King: Eternal Monarch Meme 07 - Artificial complexity

    #TheKingEternalMonarch #TheKingEternalMonarchMeme #TheKingEternalMonarchMemes #LeeMinHo #KimGoEun #KimEunSook #더킹영원의군주  #이민호 #김고은 #김은숙
    Explanation:

    The various comments from the spectators are a source of inspiration. Some are arrogant, calling the detractors of the drama idiots. They consider the quality of the drama according to how difficult it is to understand. Whereas in reality, the difficulties in understanding do not come from the story, but from the confusion generated by poor directing and writing.

  • The King: Eternal Monarch Memes 08 - Injured Queen

    #TheKingEternalMonarch #TheKingEternalMonarchMeme #TheKingEternalMonarchMemes #LeeMinHo #KimGoEun #KimEunSook #더킹영원의군주  #이민호 #김고은 #김은숙
    Explanation:

    Episode 11, Tae Eul must fight and escape from dangerous situations. However, in Episode 12, by a miracle, she was not injured and suffers only from dehydration. The meme is nonsense humor in the style of Monty Python. With a final gag about product placement.

  • The King: Eternal Monarch Memes 09 - Hardcore fan dishonesty

    #TheKingEternalMonarch #TheKingEternalMonarchMeme #TheKingEternalMonarchMemes #LeeMinHo #KimGoEun #KimEunSook #더킹영원의군주  #이민호 #김고은 #김은숙
    Explanation:

    Acidic meme about the fans who refuse any criticism, about those who watch, or have stopped watching. Everybody what. I thought it was funny that the main character dropped the drama. Of course, I don't want the stubborn fans killed. On the contrary, I thank them, they bring a surplus of comedy on the fringe of the drama! As Shin Jay is also the fan character on this meme, King Lee Gon can thus rid the drama of an extra character.

  • The King: Eternal Monarch Memes 10 - 16^2 reasons why

    #TheKingEternalMonarch #TheKingEternalMonarchMeme #TheKingEternalMonarchMemes #LeeMinHo #KimGoEun #KimEunSook #더킹영원의군주  #이민호 #김고은 #김은숙
    Explanation:

    Easy meme. Direct gag! The content of the drama is far too rich to be effective. It is very difficult to immerse oneself in a storyline in a pleasant way. Jumong is a 81 episodes historical kdrama.

  • The King: Eternal Monarch Meme 11 - Drama Award

    #TheKingEternalMonarch #TheKingEternalMonarchMeme #TheKingEternalMonarchMemes #LeeMinHo #KimGoEun #KimEunSook #더킹영원의군주  #이민호 #김고은 #김은숙
    Explanation:

    Although MBC and SBS are two public channels, they are in competition. No wonder the two presenters tease their rivals laughing foolishly. The drama contains great ideas but fails in storytelling. The last picture of the meme contains a hidden gag, just like drama. The actor Lee Si Un is the presenter, then he is suddenly in the audience, without a narrative link. Or maybe, he's a doopleganger...

  • The King: Eternal Monarch Meme 12 - Truth about Time Stop

    #TheKingEternalMonarch #TheKingEternalMonarchMeme #TheKingEternalMonarchMemes #LeeMinHo #KimGoEun #KimEunSook #더킹영원의군주  #이민호 #김고은 #김은숙
    Explanation:

    Lee Min-ho is an actor known for being un-expressive. This idea has been preserved for the needs of the meme, although his acting is convincing in the drama. The final gag is based on the accumulation of themes, after the aliens, the cyborg! We can guess that it's two technicians from the editing room who are talking to each other. In yellow, this is the true Euler number.

    Explanation:

    A very simple meme. It highlights the qualities and flaws of drama. A huge work on the ideas but a disappointing and confusing storytelling.

    Explanation:

    This meme contains a real scenario, up to a certain point, despite the avalanche of absurdities it contains. This is very much related to the labyrinthine efforts that some spectators make to understand every detail of the drama, and to explain all the rules and phenomena it contains. The two characters often react as spectators, with provisional certainties, and they end up understanding the truth together, the true meaning of this crazy Reversal Rule.

    Explanation:

    Most spectators do not like an actor or actress in the ensemble. But everyone loves the mare Maximus! The final gag is again a reference about the overabundance of themes in the drama. The dialogues of the meme stick strongly to the real dialogues of this press conference.

    The King: Eternal Monarch Meme 16 - Top priority

    #TheKingEternalMonarch #TheKingEternalMonarchMeme #TheKingEternalMonarchMemes #LeeMinHo #KimGoEun #KimEunSook #더킹영원의군주  #이민호 #김고은 #김은숙
    Explanation:

    Thank you to the commentators for inspiring this meme, especially LBPG for the final gag. It hardly parodies the situation, since it is the priority chosen by Tae Eul during this scene. For the rest, I only translate with vulgarity the implicit situation of this poor Shin-Jay.
