Producers of the upcoming K-drama The King: The Eternal Monarch, which stars Lee Min Ho, just announced that they've found his leading lady and it's no other than Kim Go Eun! The fantasy romance drama is set to begin filming in the second half of 2019 and will begin airing in 2020.
In case you have yet to know her or her stellar performances in the endearing drama Cheese in a Trap and in the world-wide hit Goblin, here are a few quick facts about the actress:
1. Go Eun is (almost) 28 years old! Her birthday falls on July 2, 1991.
Go Eun spent most of her childhood in China and moved back to South Korea when she was a teen. Meanwhile, her new co-star Lee Min Ho is turning 31 this year.
2. She's most famous—at least in the Philippines—for her role in the 2016 K-drama Goblin.
Go Eun played the role of Eun Tak, the Goblin's bride and the only person who could end his suffering as an immortal being. Imagine starring alongside Gong Yoo!

5. Go Eun is set to play two roles for the upcoming 2020 drama: A detective and a criminal.

The emperor of the Korean empire, Lee Gon (Lee Min Ho), will try to fight evil by teaming up with detective Jung Tae Eul to close the door between the two worlds.
