Prior filming this drama, it seemed that I had a lot of confusion as to who the main male lead was. I thought all along that Choi Jin Hyuk was the main lead and love interest. This was never the case. Choi Jin Hyuk still has a lead role though and is an important part of the story. We all know that the show was also extended by 4 episodes, (please correct me here if I’m wrong- 2 or 4???) and that altered how events went down.

 

Spoiler

 

 

 

From many happenings between Oh Sunny and Chun Woo Bin, it was clear that they're supposed to be in love. But Writer-Director just flipped the story when Lee Hyuk gained popularity among netizen. When they thought of pairing Oh Sunny-Lee Hyuk at the middle, they should have done it better. They should have made Lee Hyuk feel remorse for all those wrong doings but they just showed his twisted love for Oh Sunny. They tried to make it look like Lee Hyuk is a victim, which he is not.

 

As much as I enjoyed and was full on board with The Last Empress, I'll forever be bitter about how the victims of the story never really got a satisfying ending. But I'll also forever complement the TLE team/cast for their amazing performance that we all enjoyed. Everyone performed  spectacularly. :thumbsup:

 

P.S. : I'll also be bitter about How they weakened Oh Sunny's Character strength at the end. In my opinion she was done being fangirl for Lee Hyuk after the betrayal and the dirty face of LH and palace as a whole. She was supposed to be the one who will bring down the palace and make sure those power abusers are punished. but it looked like mother and son (Lee Hyuk and high Empress) fought each other in bitterness. And Oh Sunny was there just to announce the ending of monarchy to citizen!

 

And Where was the Oh Sunny who vowed this?

At the end she disappeared. The character, Oh Sunny deserved better.

 

At the end Writer and PD be like..

May be I shouldn't be this much invested in this bitterness..But somehow I'm. :(

Yeah I’m thinking about VIP too but no firm commitment yet.   Btw actually  I got sucked into c-drama(historical) and spent many weeks like a walking zombie. hehe   Binge watching c-dramas (50 – 70 eps per a drama) really made me test my sanity. :sweatingbullets:   Especially it was hard because a historical c-drama has very long dialogues and I have to pause long to read subs.      Luckily I finished watching most popular ones just before Justice started and thankfully none of the new dramas is interesting enough to attract me yet.  I now have my normal life. haha  Still I couldn’t believe how good those historical c-dramas are.   
Very appreciated for your passionate defense for CJH’s  Wang Shik   You are so good.    CJH and Nara showed us such heartwarming sweet scenes with WS and Sunny.  :kiss_wink:

There is no news about CJH with OCN Rugal yet.   It’s hard for me to imagine CJH playing the character with bionic eyes.   haha

Rugal webtoon characters

ratings EP29&30: 5.8% & 7%

Yes Yes Justice regained No.1 spot.  Praying it will stay on No.1 tomorrow too.

**Lots of cat and mouse games today
I feel today’s true winner is Cha Nam-Sik (SYA’s superiors) who got promoted after a skillful maneuver against her boss,  Joo Man-Yong.  haha   I wonder whether she is really good or just a skillful ambitious bureaucrat??  
Song showed the deepening corrupted state of his mind: Crush one’s conscience and guilty feeling because they would make one weaker.  Song said before “Humans choose between good and evil… based on need, not conscience.”  So he has a different outlook about humanity.  
Sadly Dae Jin didn’t act like a good person.    Can’t blame him too much since he’s still young and inexperienced.
It doesn’t appear that Tak will be redeemed in any way at the end.  Maybe he will go down as a true psycho.  He tries to use mental illness as his defense.
I guess it’s time for TK to reveal what he did 7 years ago.
Everybody around Song asked why Song couldn’t kill TK.  Yeah I want to know that too.

Very moving end, sad but beautiful.   I know I expected a sweet happy ending but I forgot Justice is kdrama-film noir.   Though PD left out some unexplained details, I’m satisfied.  :)

 

 

Film noir: 

Spoiler

Film noir:  a style or genre of cinematographic film marked by a mood of pessimism, fatalism, and menace. The term was originally applied (by a group of French critics) to American thriller or detective films made in the period 1944–54 and to the work of directors such as Orson Welles, Fritz Lang, and Billy Wilder.

 

Wiki:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Film_noir
… The 1940s and 1950s are generally regarded as the "classic period" of American film noir. Film noir of this era is associated with a low-key, black-and-white visual style that has roots in German Expressionist cinematography. Many of the prototypical stories and much of the attitude of classic noir derive from the hardboiled school of crime fiction that emerged in the United States during the Great Depression. …

Hi booha, thanks for sharing this. CJH had many precious lines in the drama. I love his character as Tae Kyung. He really did a great job. Choi Jin Hyuk gives his best for any material he's given, anyway. I'm happy to see his continuous growth as an actor. It's a good drama. I'm glad that we could get to see him in another drama soon. No rest & idle moment for him, huh? :P

I never watched Chinese Historicals.. I even tend to avoid Korean Saeguk dramas. I mostly stick to korean drama but I do sometimes watch modern c-drama. I know Chinese historical dramas are very popular I watched Scarlet heart Korean remake and I enjoyed it very much. I only watched few Saeguk. I remember I left Gu Family Book in the middle. :P The actors were good (CJH's storyline was interesting) but somehow I lost interest in the middle.

 

Spoiler

I enjoyed some of the modern cdrama very much, specially their youth based/ school drama. But I think many c-drama most of the time mess up with ending.. I mean sometimes the drama is amazing but the ending is just blunt/half done (like The Interpreter, I loved the lead chemistry so very much). I recently watched 'Here to Heart', I liked it a lot. I was in mood for a Melodrama and I got exactly that from that one except those boring side characters I fast forwarded. I found the leads' acing individually as well as combinedly awesome. 

 

I watched last episode of justice. I kind of don't know how to wrap up my thoughts around the ending. Another suicide is not what I was expecting. But I must appreciate the cast. CJH finally completed another drama, working very hard. Hope he gets to take a rest before he pick the next one. And CJH, DEFINITELY NOT COMPLAINING but can we get something SWEET?  :P

Well I always like a historical drama so finding a new genre like wuxia gave me so much pleasure except such long eps.  At the moment I haven’t checked out other types of c-drama yet.   So  Viki has Here to Heart & just read a synopsis  & I might check it out later.  
Oh yes I noticed too about c-drama’s unpredictable and unpleasant ending. hahaha   I read all of the rants about c-drama endings in soompi.  Maybe the Chinese writers think we the viewers feel cheated if the ending has a simple happily-live-ever-after?  :P

Yes it’s more preferable if CJH would pick some sweet romance  but…   

 

@hibiscus23

Hi chingu  well Justice isn’t for the mass audience so if it didn’t grab your hand passionately, then it wasn’t meant for you right??   I didn’t feel emotional like I did with Tunnel but I liked the way the writer created the interesting ensemble from the main characters.  take care  :blush:
