What We Are Watching Today: ‘The King: Eternal Monarch’

  • The drama uses real time-traveling theories and concepts

In a world of mainstream K-dramas filled with cliches and reoccurring themes, “The King: Eternal Monarch” stands unique and absolutely mind-blowing.
The romantic-fantasy series has the Korean megastar Lee Min-Ho as the king, Lee Gon, and Kim Go-eun as strong and fierce Jeong Tae Eul, the main love interest and a detective in Korea.
The theme of the show is parallel universes crossing paths. The countries featured are the kingdom of Corea and the Republic of Korea, the two characters belonging to different universes. The king is shown to be loved by all around him and is a mathematician and just ruler.
The drama uses real time-traveling theories and concepts, has an intriguing Korean twist, and a standout performance by Woo Do-Hwan who plays a dual role as the king’s bodyguard in both worlds.

What We Are Eating Today: Cheese Taste

  • One of the best things about the shop is how well they treat their customers, offering to let them try different things while the visitor comes to a final decision

Looking at the Cheese Taste shop in Al-Safa district, Jeddah, I never expected the delicious treats that waited inside. It looks like a regular small-scale bakery, but stepping into the little shop and trying out their products was a new discovery.
Their pastries are of high quality and presented to visitors in two different sizes. The variety is mind-blowing — everything from plain chocolate cakes to carrot cakes.
Their carrot cakes are some of the best I have had. One of my other favorites is their strawberry tarts, which are a perfect combination of a crisp base, a creamy-smooth filling and glazed strawberries.
One of the best things about the shop is how well they treat their customers, offering to let them try different things while the visitor comes to a final decision.
The prices are also very low — amazing because they don’t reflect the quality of the products.
