~That~ Necklace Scene In 'The King: Eternal Monarch' Is Actually A Product Placement
If you are still keeping up with The King: Eternal Monarch on Netflix and are reading this, how did you even survive Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun’s undeniable chemistry?! Seriously though, all the little kilig moments between Lee Gon and Jeong Tae Eul are starting to get more and more intense as each episode goes by. While the show may have received quite the criticism for being heavy and totally obvious on all the product placements (I mean, someone’s gotta pay the bills, right?), many still tune in for the interesting storyline and the talented cast. After all, most of the actors play two different characters from each of the parallel universes.
If you’ve watched episode 12 already, you might be familiar with this particular scene featuring one of Lee Gon’s sweet gestures for Tae Eul. (If you haven’t: proceed with caution! Minor spoilers ahead.)
Kim Go Eun’s character, Tae Eul, ends up in the Kingdom of Corea and reunites with Lee Min Ho’s character, Lee Gon. The palace staff hauls in racks of clothes for Tae Eul to choose from, as per the king’s order, of course. After changing into her new set of clean clothing, Tae Eul finds a box with a cute plum blossom necklace in the coat pocket, but she ended up taking the necklace off after trying it on. It turns out, the necklace is from a brand called J. Estina, as seen below:
The necklace is called Flolet and it’s worth 180,000 Korean Won or roughly P7,400. Coincidentally, the jewelry brand is a sponsor of the show, so that kilig gesture from Lee Gon is actually a product placement, LOL. All the cute minimalist earrings Tae Eul wears are also from the same brand.
Still, there was a lot of breadcrumbs from that particular scene that surely left viewers quite curious. Tae Eul did mention that the necklace design was plum blossom, which apparently symbolizes many things, including hope, perseverance, and renewal. So who knows, there might be more to the necklace than just paid promo. Guess we’ll just have to stay tuned for the last few episodes!

There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
