Recommended Posts

Choi Jin Hyuk is on his way for a fanmeeting in Osaka. But here is an excerpt with English subs of his interview with SBS catch

And for anyone who have seen Go Back Couple, Jang Ki Young sent a coffee truck to Jang Nara on the set of The Last Empress. I just find it sweet of him :wub:

CHOI JIN HYUUUUUKKK is soooo perfect!!! He really stands out in this drama. His expressions actually move people to feel the same anger and sadness he is feeling. Just daebak! The reason I am more excited for him than say Jang Na Ra is because Nara is ALWAYS perfect- she always slays with her performance and chemistry with the male lead but I feel for Choi Jin Hyuk more than I have felt for his characters in his other dramas. And I feel this improvement itself deserves a huge round of applause!!

 

Seriously can't wait for next week when our Nara finally shows her stronger side and teams up with our bodygaurd to take down the royals plus Yura...

:D Because I have nothing better to do, I went to watch the first episode when the body was found. I discovered that the English subs only translate the things that the reporters said, but not the words on the news screen. So here they are, translated from the Chinese subs:

.....

And I checked the stages of decomposition, a dead body dries up between 50-365 days, depending on how much the body of the species is covered with hair.

You are one true detective :-) 

With the crazy mind of mine, I say we make it the first wife. She didnt really die, someone faked her death, locked her up somewhere down in a dungeon. Her pregnancy could be a result of an unwillingness act. Hmmm...

 

CJH and JNR have known each other that long and that close and still havent hooked up?

oohh...good thought..but the first wife, I believe was cremated and her ashes are supposed to be in an urn that lee hyuk almost threw in anger then Woobin prevented him from doing so by being his punching bag. Unless the empress dowager placed someone else on that urn??? But it seems, something happened with a motorcycle or car accident before which is why the emperor is prohibited to ride a motorcycle. Is this connected with his first wife's death? Did she die because of him? That even though he loves her so much, he can't forgive himself to be the cause of her death?

CJH and JNR are quite close because of Park Kyung Lim. And her mom recognized him on TV as the kid who played Go stop at their house :lol: Their relationship is like noona-dongsaeng all the time. But who knows..Nara said she never fell in love in real life with any of her co-stars.

Oh Sunny's tears are so powerful to cut her bracelet off her arm. Can she just cry over her husband and his mistress? Maybe her tears can cut both of them too :lol:

after watching the latest ep, i finally understood why it was necessary for emperor and sunny to sleep together.. after that night, sunny was under the impression that her husband is maybe in love with her. but then he hurt her by throwing and smashing things to her face. then, came the ultimate betrayal when she saw him kissing yura.. all these build up plots are actually preparing sunny to get her revenge.. 

 

i saw in the nxt ep preview that yura is locked in dungeon-lookalike prison.. maybe sunny ordered it?

 

cant wait for sunny to get even with the emperor and yura!  as the saying goes, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned!

When  CWB was being chased by Lee Hyuk's men with Ma's body in the car, his face was definitely exposed. So how come they didn't seem to know he was driving the Ma guy's car? Also, I think the man who saved Na Wang Sik could have trained Lee Hyuk in martial arts as Lee Hyuk said CWB's fighting style is familiar.

kekeke.... I can't believe we actually won @celebrianna the poll. hahahhaha... thought some of the other options were sure to win. yay! :D

 

44781518_474893523020370_371370032811547

 

thanks for playing along everyone! ^_^

 

the poll:

let's have a poll "who will find out first about rocky bear's secret identity?"

option 1: so, we love rocky bear but let's face it, he is not exactly bright is he? so he will reveal himself to yura because he believes she loves him. idiot! hahahaha....  --  @Lmangla   @zba72   @chubby^green^   @celebrianna @ktcjdrama

option 2: yura may have ignored rocky bear but because he followed her like a stalker in the old days, she will find him familiar and start to guess rocky bear used to be chubby bear.  -- @O  @stella77

option 3: sunny may be ditzy because of her fan girling but when she's not fan girling, she does have some brain cells. so she will find out the owner of the chain and locket is rocky bear and he used to be chubby bear...  --  @tianaa  @Carmarie  @guinearoyal @philosophie @sonequeen01 @booha   @zba72 , gm4queen, @alekaonu

option 4: grandmother and jedi master have some connection and so grandmother will find out about rocky bear... @triplem

option 5: emperor villian, shall we call him penguin, will find out rocky bear is still alive and start to suspect when he wonders why rocky bear has something against yellow pick up trucks...

option 6: rocky bear is like us and finds it hard to keep diet. poor fella. so yura recognizes him as he becomes chubby bear. so sad. -- @ChewyChocolate   @Matilda_Anne

option 7: moustache man sniffs around the palace and wonders why rocky bear is so fit. and then he finds out rocky bear climbed the mountain to become fit.... @celebrianna   @Lmangla

I am glad I was wrong and it was unexpected. The writing is good! They are asking us to suspend belief and reality but don’t assume that we viewers are stupid! I love at how fast the plot is going forward - straight into all kinds of fun.

 

You should continue the poll after the episodes each week! Like this week: we can ask who throws Yura in jail!

For me this story really doesn’t have a boring moment. I just breezed through the two episodes just like that. Poor WS found out the essentials of who was responsible for his mother’s death and the hurt and rage he feels for that YR seems to be eating him up inside but I’m glad he decided to bide his time in dealing with her.

 

Is Sunny giving her lovely husband a second chance next week? Her voiceover in the preview makes it seem that way. I guess for her it makes sense to give him another chance since she’s stuck with him. Poor thing. He treats her like a real nuisance. After she’s tried her best I hope she wise up and fend for herself. She’s surrounded by dangerous ladies so she needs to learn how to survive in the palace.

 

Interesting backstory all around for YR, LH, LH’s little princess, his first wife, his sister, the princess’ maid, etc. So many things were revealed this week. Not bad at all.

okay have watched the full episode and I take it back -- rocky bear does have brains!! :lol: hahahhaha... so thought that he wouldn't pil joo and say "but I know yura! you are lying!"... nope! instead rocky bear uses what he knows about yura to confuse her into believing he is dead. so in addition to his nine lives, he also does have some brain cells. woo hoo! and was anyone surprised that pil joo actually died? it looks like we are going to actually have bad people getting killed instead of the usual route of ending up in jail or getting redeemed. so for all those who hate those kind of endings, a little dance? ^_^

 

@at2005 @ktcjdrama @Matilda_Anne ~ wonder if the writer will surprise by adding one more concubine to the list.... 

so we have several mysteries which all happened 7 years ago -- the empress dies, some bodyguard disappeared, nanny got pregnant (how?) and gave birth to this girl who has been passed off as the sister's daughter.... so maybe the corpse is tied in further to that mystery and can be someone else as well...

 

in addition to the nanny, another surprise was the sister. so rather than a comedy character, she too seems just as dark. a secret raging alcoholic. and what is with that child who is not allowed to be a child by this nanny? instead of playing, she is reading the newspaper and desperately trying to impress the emperor and basically sweet talk everyone around her. poor kiddo! too early to be playing games no?

 

but no wonder choi jin hyuk took this role. in addition to the great acting, he gets to show off his swim, punches, sword fights, combat, driving skills on motorbike as well as the car and also some of saturi! waaah, what a role! :D kekekek.... but I didn't like that he wore shots on top of his swimming tights. why? whereas the emperor's tights were actually really pretty (not that it adds to the story! hahahahah....)  we viewers are so lucky to get double fan service no? and the bike rides and car chases were fun to watch.

 

 

 

 

@stella77 ~ another poll? kekekke.. this drama sure does raise a lot of questions no?

 

here's another poll: "who put yura in jail?"

option A: penguin's mother --- she doesn't need an excuse; she will cook up something if there wasn't one...

option B: the sister bird -- she is mad she lost her CEO position and is cawing like a crow

option C: grandmother -- she is sad her hairpin didn't kill her and decides to cool her in a cell

option D: sunny! -- the fangs have arrived.

@stella77 and @ktcjdrama  I could not agree with your more, I have not seen any provocative sexual scenes that would make anyone blush, or turn away in disgust.   What I have seen are bed or bathtub scenes tastefully executed.  It is left up to the imagination as to the what actually happened.  Therefore, I conclude that those who are protesting about the sex in this drama have "dirty minds":D  Oops, I know your secret.:)   No worries though, having an imagination is a part of being human.

 

I love that this is a fast moving drama. What keeps me hooked is all of the twists, and turns, such as finding out the the nanny is the little princess daughter and not the spoiled, unhinged princess, which makes the child her niece (thank God).  Now I understand why the little princess visited the king so often, it is his daughter. I am curious as to what nanny's position was before she give birth to the king's daughter, was she his personnel assistant also?

 

The person in the grave had on a necklace and earrings that looked like the heirloom set the king gave to Suni.  Therefore, who is the person in the grave?  Was she someone the king impregnated also?

 

It is obvious that the king loved his first wife, what happened that she took her own life it that is what truly happened.  We know that his daughter is 7, and the wife has been dead for 7 years, is there a correlation between the two events?

 

Is the king's brother an author and why is he estranged from the palace?

 

This is why I am watching the drama.  I have loved watching Choi, Jin Hyuk since the Gu Family Book; however, he is not why I decided to watch this show.  I love Jang Nara's acting, but she is not the reason I am watching this drama.  I was looking for something to watch while the drama I was watching was translated into English and after watching episode one, I was hooked.  After episode one, I had many questions that I wanted the answers to.  How to get those answers...watch the drama.  So far, this drama has not disappointed me.

 

I am looking forward to the next episode.

I think he chose to stay away from the palace and determined not to be found, thus using a pseudonym and not wanting to hold any interviews/signing of books where he has to show his face. We don't know his exact reason, but he did comment (when seeing the news of the wedding) about how many more tragedies does Peiha wants to create... I believe all the things that happened 7 years ago are closely linked to LH, but he is oblivious to them all.

 

The little princess lineage turned out to be quite obvious from the character chart on our thread's first page. Look at the lines. It's just that we don't have the English version. I wish there's someone who can translate it for us as I'm interested to read all the tags there.

 

@Lmangla Okay, I'll go with option A, because it's a never ending cat-fight between these two... Although it'll be quite fun if it turns out to be D, because I do want Sunny to grow her fangs already, and roar :lol:

Nah, I don't think it was the tear like many claimed. If you look closely to her wrist/hand, you could see how it was tightened up when she saw them kissing. I think that what caused the bracelet to break.

Well I hope Sunny gets smarter and has a pretty good excuse to put Yu Ra in there. Otherwise, her husband is going to give her a hell of a time (it is not like he hasn't anyway).

I sure hope not. I am not going to give any man a second chance to hurt me one more time. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me ..

i am hoping that the first step of sunny's revenge is to take over her duty as the empress

finished watching ep 6 and i found yura is becoming much more annoying now

assuming the role of the emperor's closest confidante is just telling sunny that she is not needed at all

her job was merely to hold to the tile of the empress and to stay at home being a dutiful obedient wife, just an accessory

freaking annoying

i wish that next week, if lee hyuk has another meet up or meeting, sunny would show and take her place next to him and watch as yura boiled up inside

she needs to regain her role as the empress, doesnt matter if her own husband dont like her

she is the empress now

not that freaking conniving min yura

:angry:

 

anyway the moustache guy is dead

aish i was hoping he would stay longer and play a bigger role

aside from min yura it seems that he is another one who actually has a brain

 

seeing how woo bin is the one showing sunny about the emperor and his mistress

for sure we now know that he would be there for her hopefully

but i am wondering when will she finds out about the truth woo bin

 

a man who dont give a damn about his daughter met a gal who didnt give a damn about her son

what a perfect pair these two

sighs
