Hello friends!   Welcome to the season of swords and destiny. For those who don't know, August 15 was Korea's independence day. Inspired, we decided to create an event season focused o

I watched the first episode and enjoyed it very much. Usually a sageuk would have like 15 or more episodes for the childrens part but it looks like here they're going to fill in everything that happen

@partyon Talking of Ha Ji Won.... I LOVED her in Hwang Jin Yi and the movie Duelist.     On a different note: what I really miss are the ceremonies for good luck for the dra

Oh, so the script is being revised? Hmm well that's not a good sign for this drama popularity. As much as i care for history accuracy I care for HJW choice too. Neither Empress Ki or the emperor were good characters so I'm not sure how korean viewers would react. I'm conflicted, drama popularity or accuracy? But again, people wont like it if the writer made changes! Oh, This drama is getting so much tension even before it airs and some people are concerned about that period costume and hairstyle even MBC is having a hard time casting the second lead!

Plz MBC, be good to Ha Ji Won this time!

I will go for well-written and well-directed drama. :D

I think accuracy will make the drama boring. Imagine 50 episodes to be based on such limited historical resources. Even the best of writers cannot do it. I think some of them may snooze off while writing the drama. Just kidding. :D

Anyways, I want the drama to be imaginative and powerful and strong and dark with a heartfelt and meaningful ending.

Im just so proud ha ji won is the lead actress for this. Exactly one month to go for October. Wake me up please when September ends. :D

now i really worry about HJW. hope the story will not chance too much. even saeguk drama like goddes of fire get low rating hope it will not effect empress qi. MBC please do a good job! and casting a charismatic 2nd lead.. beside future choice who know what drama will compete with empress qi?

I think the lead actor they picked has a look as an Emperor. OAlthough i haven't seen any drama or movie of him ' date='for sure ALWAYS with HA JI WON's partner will boost his popularity. Mind you he is good looking too. [/quote']

@tenta812. Joo Jin Moo was awesome in Frozen Flower, the only project Ive seen JJM in. He looks good in saguek. ;) but JJM is playing the role of the king of Goryeo

Dramabeans came out with an article that Ji Chang -wook is only in talks for this drama, and when I asked them, they gave me a Korean news source..

Ji Chang-wook courted to romance Ha Ji-won in Empress Ki

Well, it’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it. MBC’s upcoming sageuk epic Empress Ki(formerly called Hwatu and now just named for its heroine, likely because everyone kept thinking the drama would be about gambling) is getting back on the casting bandwagon, after early rumors that Jang Geun-seok might star. Ji Chang-wook (Five Fingers, Warrior Baek Dong-soo) is now being courted to star, with reports ranging from “confirmed” to “favorably considering.”

The 50-episode historical epic will be MBC’s Monday-Tuesday drama for the bulk of fall and winter, and takes place in the Goryeo era. Ha Ji-won stars as as a Goryeo woman who gets taken to Yuan to be a royal consort, later to become Empress Ki of Yuan. Joo Jin-mostars as King Chunghye of Goryeo, an ambitious ruler determined to free Goryeo from Yuan control.

If he signs on, Ji Chang-wook will play Yuan Emperor Togon-temür, who eventually takes the heroine as his royal concubine. We’ll meet him when he’s a prince, during his exile in Goryeo (banished while the throne went to his uncle and then his own younger brother). It’s as high-stakes as a love triangle can get, with two kings, one nation fighting for its freedom from the other, and one woman caught between them. I was a little worried about who they’d cast as the younger Yuan emperor, but I’m happy about Ji Chang-wook. He’s talented, and knows his way around a sageuk. They keep casting people I like in this drama, and I’m starting to look forward to it despite its monstrous episode count.

The drama comes from the writing team behind Giant, History of the Salaryman, andIncarnation of Money, and the PD of Dr. Jin. It follows Goddess of Fire Jung-yi and premieres in October on MBC.

It has been officially confirmed by Glorious Entertainment that Ji Chang-wook will accept the role of the Emperor of Yuan.  I'd better start stocking up on caffeine and other stay-awake pills before 21 October, since I'm going to need all my strength to plow through a 50-episode sageuk! :X
