Please don't question my curiosity.

Did you read the question?
Oh. (6 characters)
Sort of a late answer but hopefully it still helps.
Bulbapedia explains the mechanics behind King's Rock for each generation as well as offers a list for moves affected before Gen 5 -- https://m.bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/King%27s_Rock#Generation_II
That's a list of moves AFFECTED, not a list of moves NOT AFFECTED.
Yikes! My bad!
I looked again and found only a few answers. This is a Gamefaqs Gen 4 board where someone asks more or less the same question, the last post is someone telling what Physical moves will not make contact, and which Special Moves do (because there are only a few of them and I guess it was easier than writing down all the Special moves that won't make contact). Hopefully this will settle your curiosity.

...But it looks like Ammeter answered it best!
