    I am here because of SangYun...and now I admire JangNara hehe, I am okay if both coincidence...matched in real LOL (in episode of variety show ‘my ugly duckling’ , one of the Mother asked: are you with someone? SangYun answered: Girlfriend? No at this moment...)

    Thanks Sin hoonsim for the new trailer. After watching it, a theory came to mind. Isn't he described as an ambitious person? And she a daughter of a rich family? Well he could have targeted her from the beginning and married her to help him climb the social ladder. And her, after all, wasn't really the daughter of the rich family? She could have pretended to be one? 


    @TXviewerThe date is presented in the new trailers of VIP, released by SBS. The new date is October 28.

    Thought this was starting October 7 2019. Now showing October 28? I’m confused. Is it showing anywhere with English subs?

  2. Poor her...first she got cheated on in the Last Empress, now again in VIP? Distance could mean a lot of things, physically and emotionally. Will she be detached from him emotionally because of their different beliefs? I mean she has secrets of her own.

    Don't remind me of Allure...the distance is way to "wide" for my liking...that why I got them closer (as you can see in my profile picture). 


    Ladies, we have to be prepared for heartache and heartbreak.

    @gm4queen @at2005 ahahahah the drama has not started and we're ever-ready to ship them reel ( and real (?)  :P) ...how cute. @Lawyerh knows that I low-key ship them....:ph34r:

    I am looking forward to what's in store. But the drama does have heartbreak ahead...him being suspected of cheating on her is not going to be easy. I hope the writer does the cast justice. I watched both their previous drama just before this , and hmmm I was not a fan of the writing but I stuck on anyway esp for LSY's drama because of him. 

    Right...At the end of the trailer where he apologizes to her and states that he doesn't want to lose her "this way" makes me curious which way is "this way". I've too suspected that he either cheats on her with the VIP of the VIP for a promotion or something related, or he betrays her when they both work on the same case etc. 

    Can you tell us more about their writing/directing style? What are their previous works? Perhaps I should check it out. But like you've said, you are kind of stuck for LSY...and me, JNR :D

    Just noted this before & now noting this once again because of the pic dear @at2005 chingu has posted on the All The Butlers thread! Have you ever noted this guys, @triplem @Lawyerh @sin hoonsim & others????! Her glance at him is all the same in both events! It's so lovable the way that she's looking at him!!! :heart: It's as if she is in love with him... OH MY!!! IS SHE REALLY???! The guy is so pure & handsome in short hair by the way! :) :D Then does it mean that we can purely ship them????! So cute! :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:



    I was hoping for a two sided relationship. The way he looks at her through out the All The Butlers' episode is gentle and his expression is like "yes dear, whatever you say dear". I am already on this ship and secretly hoping that they are dating in real life.

  5. Small percentage but still possible for someone to survive with a bullet lodged in the brain. The writer could dig deep into the medical field and have one of the doctor explain the slim chance of survivor due to the position of the bullet etc  ..:D

    Fat to Fit in months is not impossible, especially when the dude has nothing to do but train train and train..

    There are a lot of unbelievable stories but still true out there in this world.

  6. If you have already dropped it, that means you are not watching it, then how do you drop it again? Hmmm..interesting


    Anyway, it is sad to hear about the abuse. I hope they sort it out. Were they supposed to have a press conference about this today on the 18th? I wonder about the outcome. I hope SBS weight the cost and benefits prior to making any decisions that they don't give up the long term benefit over a short one.

    I was not surprised that grandma got killed because she became a threat to crown .in the palace , fathers kills sons,mother’s kills sons, even loyal ministers get framed with treason so justice seekers like GED and empress sunny will really have a hard.im just praying that sunny doesn’t get pregnant for the moment because the baby will definitely perish .


    I actually prefer for Sunny to get pregnant right now.

    1. I want to see how far the emperor would go, whether he would harm his own child or would have a slight change of heart. 

    2. It would add more conflicts to the story and struggles to Sunny's emotion :D. See if she would do anything to bring her kid's father down, or would she give him another chance..

  8. They are going to kill you regardless if they are meant to shut you up forever once and for all. You will die because you know about their secret. Who is better to keep a secret than a dead person? I say the answer is depend.


    I dont see all cases as "I am telling you this for you to kill me." Some times they are meant to stop you from doing wrong further.  Not everyone takes your advice so I guess you will have to see who are are dealing with. If you were WS's mother, would you expect someone you cared for like a daughter to smash your head repeatedly with a rock until you die?


    As for the GED, I say perhaps in her case she should quietly investigate because she suspected them both of killing the former empress. So in her case, there is a trend so the chance of them killing someone again is there.


    Again, that is only to emphasize what I have previously said, common sense is not always common.


    If everyone had common sense, the world would be perfect and less/no crimes.

  9. After reading the comments, I have to ask myself this:


    -Aren't we expecting a bit too much from the characters when 

    1. It is just 8 episodes in ;)

    2. We have the overview of the story line, see things from multiple perspectives and see many angles that the characters don't get to see?


    We keep saying it is not logical or this character/that character has no common sense but have we thought of:

    - Do people always do things that make sense? (remember, common sense is not that common) :D

    - Are people always logical?

    - Are all people logical people?


    I mean you can learn about thinking logically but being able to think logically is not the same. The way we think depends on a lot of factors such as, how were we brought up, education, experience, knowledge, information we have, environment, situations, personalities, time constraint etc


    I mean, if we were thrown into one of their places, could we guarantee the outcome would be better? Easy said than done right..:D

  10. @Pam_Van Fossen Before she became an Empress, she was just a common citizen leading a simple life so I don't find her reaction surprising. She cries when feels hurt, screams when upset. I find her reaction is a bit light especially after her husband cheated on her, hired to kill her. Different personality reacts differently when presented a similar situation. I too like her reaction. At least it shows she still has a good heart. The first thing that came to her mind wasn't "I will kill them both".


    @msaamia the reason I didn't list Sunny, Woo Bin and Byun because for now, Woo Bin betrayed her. She still has doubt about him. I too will miss the GED. She was the only support Sunny had, now, she has no one to turn to for help against the Emperor (until she could trust Woo Bin), no one to cry to.


    @Matilda_Anne I believe so. Just think of it as privately owned property/investment so with the royal family owning the mall or a piece of land etc is normal.

  11. @Auntie Mame I too think that she was killed by 2 different ppl. But I am not so sure about the emperor that ordered the poison. I am debating between between him and his mother. At first, I was so sure that Yu Ra stabbed her with the hair pin. But then, isn't that too obvious. The scene where the GED threw the hair pin could serve either as a foreshadow but so an intention to mislead viewers into thinking Yu Ru as the murderer, and then the writer could throw in a twist in there...

  12. I finally caught up. 


    -Ms. Hong is still in contact with the former Chief Guard Buyn. What will Ms. Hong's role be in the master plan? Is she as simple as an assistant to the GED? 

    -WB purposely raised his hands to fix his suit jacket. I believe he meant for her to see the scar. I think he knew she was there.

    So let see how many teams do we have in this game:
    Team A: Dowager Empress
    Team B: Emperor and Yu Ra
    Team C: Woo Bin and Byun
    Team D: Empress/Sunny 
    Team E: Nanny and Prime Minister

    May the strongest man standing.

    Side notes:

    -Emperor has a strong taste, perform bedroom act in public :D ..none of the windows on the yatch has curtain
    -Prince Yoon climbed through the ceiling's plenum without a single dust on his white shirt..wow..
    -When Sunny saved the woman, what she told her was like telling it to herself.
    -I like Sunny's sister. She is strong, physically and mentally/emotionally as well. The way she threw a man over her shoulder, dang..Sunny should recruit her to be on her team. 

    -For a moment I felt bad for the Emperor (the memory of his father). He was just a kid then, instead of explaining the expectations, they just yelled at him, berated him then turned around and praised his younger brother. Such actions would affect a child mentally. No wonder the emperor turned out to be a lunatic with nothing but rage, jealousy and delusion.

    -I like the bird (emperor's sister). She might be selfish and petty but she is not evil, more like simple minded. She probably doesn't have the brain for evilness.

  13. Perhaps she wasn't in his plan at all so he would do anything to gain the emperor's trust and this would mean to kill Sunny. She was just an action item he has to take care to earn the trust. Like his master/benefactor has once said, WB/WS is too kind to be at the palace and for revenge. Because he is kind, he doesn't want to kill an innocent person, but he has to do it in order to succeed with his plan, he is thinking of a bigger picture. I think that is why he is struggling emotionally.


    I think the person in the mask that WS/WB was chasing at the end of the last ep was Prince Yoon.

    I shared previously about the stages of decomposition... the thing is, if her body is embalmed, it will take longer time. But still, 7 years is a long time. In fact, it is 8 years since we're going back a year before the corpse was discovered. I'd like to think it's a new body, but who would be pregnant with twins? It is not possible to be Sunny since she is our heroine, I just can't imagine the writer writing off her main lead as dead (still possible though given this is makjang genre). Who has been sleeping around to have the possibility of becoming pregnant? We have 3 candidates as of now ~Sunny, YR, Nanny... 


    My next question is will we actually come back to the present time line when corpse was discovered and continue the story from there? Then I doubt it is YR because it would be less interesting not to have her around. Unless, that is the first part of the revenge by WS, and next is about taking down LH. But then again, WS said he wanted to get to YR the last in his revenge. It is still possible to be YR. My imagination is that she was finally given the necklace (unofficially) by LH to be his empress, maybe because she is pregnant, then got killed by whomever while wearing it, so was buried with it. 

    New character? Some things are unknown for now.

    By the way, 


    Could it be that the GED didnt die from the poison, then YR came in and finished her off with the hair pin?

    @ktcjdrama i somehow dont feel like the body they found a year later is the late empress, especially after the latest ep. I have to do a research to see what a body would look like after it being in water and after 7 years of decomposition. I think the body is new but it is not Yu Ra or Sunny either as the body will be found a year later. Well unless the writer is crazy to think all craziness could happen in a year time frame.

    ...She is putting all the blame on Yu Ra for the affair, not the Emperor.



    Sad reality. The woman always blames the other woman for the affair but never think that it takes two to tango. I would blame the man first for not keeping his thing in his pants as he should.

    I would love for Sunny to trick the emperor into killing Yura ..what a better way to revenge a man than to make him kill the one he loves with his own hands.

    NWS specifically told MYR on the phone that he dumped MPJ's body into the ocean which is why everyone assumes NWS was the only body in the car. And they found a bullet in the back of MPJ's head so that's another reason for them to believe the dead body was NWS. Was that what you guys were wondering?

    Ahhh...he did say that? I totally missed that part either that or my memory is not working well (part of aging)..I will have to go back and watch that episode. Thanks, that makes more sense.

    Another question: MPJ, what is his role in the palace? I know he was like a beck and call to the emperor but I didn't quite catch his role in the palace.

  18. Thanks @nakatsubebe...I work with numbers every day :D so it is in me to get curious when numbers are not consistent and don't make sense. 


    @nikki7 I will use what the empress dowager told Sunny to answer your question: No one is being nice to you for no reason. The one being nice to you is the one one you need to watch out for :D  

    Everyone is manipulating everyone around the palace...gosh, how do they live like that everyday...need to watch your back, no one is truly your friend...
