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!
