i already understand now why i cant stay away from this drama.. the makjangness is addicting actually.. 

 

after comedy, thriller, sex, angst, betrayal, murder, full body makeover and anime, now we need supernatural powers to complete this drama lol..

@Lmangla i will go with option 3:sweatingbullets: because sunny will be spending more time with rocky bear i love this name LOL :wub:

 

basically looks like seven years ago there's a tragedy with the death of first empress because emperor already married before with his first wife seven years ago so oh sunny is his second wife. back from ep 1 when emperor being assassinated, the assassin asked about his missing brother, my guess is this assassin missing brother is the bodyguard of the ex first empress, also looks like about the death first empress is indicated with that grand empress (mother). That's why emperor looked sunny like his first wife.

y3ah anime addition 3327210d66e85ef0b4bad0c68f145998220079fe

Thank you. Wonder if anyone is going to sub this, wanted to understand the words/lyric. I am addicted to the beats/rhythm for now. It gives out a dark, intensed vibe.

Quick one line summary: About multiple individuals at court struggling physically and emotionally to find power, love or both and more.

 

It is more than just cheating. Took from the above post by Maltida_Anne:

It has omedy, thriller, sex, angst, betrayal, murder..also revenge, mysteries..

 

Talking about cheating. Hmmm..Wonder if they were going to portray Sunny as a traditional female where she would have to constantly battle with the developing feeling toward WS since she was not only a married woman but aat the same time an empress (people's person) as well?

Just saw episode 5 — 

I am so enjoying this drama - it is all over the place and like on crack but soooo entertaining!


I

Spoiler

 

laughed out loud when Sunny started to sing, the card game with the Grandma Queen and the intense 2D animation intercut during sword fighting scene (which was intense!).  I also got teary when WS left his DS in the woods (so glad he went back for him)! So so happy that WS found out about Yura; oh yah I love how evil the Emperor and his mother are lol; Grandma Queen’s throwing the hairpin at Yura was amaaaaazing (I know she will probably get killed by Yura but I don’t want her to go so sooon!). Finally, a spark of a more interesting Sunny - her glare at the end was fascinating and I hope Sunny 2.0 will also be amazing!

after the emperor had sex with yura, he slept with sunny. wow his stamina must be really strong.. maybe he drinks ginseng tea that day lol.. jokes aside, i read the plot synopsis by dramawiki and it says,

 

"Due to death of Emperor Lee Hyuk’s grandmother, Oh Ssu-Ni breaks down the royal family with the help of Na Wang-Sik and finds true love"...

 

guess there will be romance between hot hunk and sunny after all..oh grandmama will die soon. 

Haaaa??? The grandma's dead?? She's the only one who likes & supports the empress... So the latter will be left alone and then will find an ally in CWB?

Grandma is still alive. Don't worry :D but I don't know how and when she's gonna die. 

They always make the last scene epic and it is epic tonight. I love that scene.

Spoiler

Oh Sunny now have seen with her own eyes the infidelity of min yura and lee hyuk. She is deeply hurt and Woo bin is with her who is also hurting seeing yura and lee hyuk kiss. Woo bin knows how much it hurts for Sunny and he covers her eyes to stop her from seeing them kiss and possibly stop her hurt.

The next episode looks like it's building up more. 

 

But at least, there is one evil person out and it's Ma Pil Joo. 

And they tried to kill "Na Wang Shik" who they don't know has seven lives. :lol:

TLE & Encounter are really fighting it off in ratings. Is anybody here watching Encounter?

 

 

me! park bo gum and song hye kyo are both gorgeous people and such good actors. the cinematography is pretty too, however, the OTP are lacking chemistry for me.. i just dont see them as lovers..i dunno why.. maybe the age gap thingy isnt my thing.. besides, the plot is quite slow and bland. i dropped it after 2 ep.. 

 

omo am i a newly converted makjang lover? am i slowly turning into my mother? :joy:

Just happened to watch tonight's eps just for Jang Na Ra even though I dropped the series so earlier...

 

At the end of the 12th ep when Oh Sunny witnessed the intimacy of Lee Hyuk & Min Yu Ra, tears feel down on Oh Sunny's hand & her couple bracelet broke down in to pieces!!! :cold_sweat: So sad!!! :( But love the cinematography!!!

 

So now that the real hunt begins!!! And I think I should come back & watch this just for Jang Na Ra!!!! :wub: To be honest, I am not interested in the plot!!! I only watch Jang Na Ra's parts! So if I am missing something, I hope you guys will guide me on the way!! :wub:

hahahaha.... take it from me, once you fall in love with makjang, you will always think it is amazing. it is like one of the comments on naver -- it a lot like instant noodles and cannot be compared with healthy food :sweatingbullets:

 

so caught up on ep 5 and it was fantastic. while the anime sequence made me giggle as we are not used to seeing it in drama, it was well done and apt in terms of fighting and lighting. so long time ago, one of my favourite anime was kenshin and penguin emperor reminds me of the villain shishio. he also happened to have a lady sidekick named yumi makato -- think of an anime version of penguin and yura plotting away...

Spoiler

99e8e0db7cb0c126c90386a6d9aa1154_480.jpg

 

now in terms of colours and expressions, something that they often showed in anime fight sequences is how the true self comes out. so we see almost a demonic version of penguin with his expressions, tongue slithering and blue background whereas, we see wang shik is still himself but in a red background.... with anime fight sequences, red background is all emotion and shows a person isn't quite in control and there is a lot of rage and inner turmoil whereas a blue one is almost more scarier because there is coldness and possibly dark magic.

 

so if we remove the comedy feel of all of a sudden seeing anime in a drama, there is almost an epic fantasy tale being told and the anime sequence tells you the inner world of these two men. it is telling us that the emperor is not all quite there and he is darker than the charming self we see outside while wang shik is in pain but that innocence/kindness is still there...
