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

Empress Ki Poll 3: OED (Old Evil Dude)   A new poll is up! Yay!   Let's talk about Old Evil Dudes (OED)..... Seems sageuks are full of them.   Now is your time to vo

great points @joccu and @Night_Owl -- they say history is re-written by the victors. so sometimes, even to claim 100% accuracy can be difficult, it really does depend on perspective. while am okay wit

Glad to see that the production has started filming -- thanks for all the great location pictures!  I'm recognizing several places used in other sageuks I've watched: Munyeong was shown in "Warrior Baek Dong Soo" and the Masan Gate was just prominently featured in "Blade and Petal."

JCW will join the cast on-set after he finishes his performances in 'The Days' musical scheduled for 14 and 15 September down in Jeju-do.  I'm guessing the Poster Shooting should start around that time as well.  Here's some important links to stay in touch with all the latest gossip:

And of course, Hulu.com (in the areas that have such coverage) will be broadcasting the MBC America shows with English subs on a delayed basis.

Can't wait for 21 October and all the goodies before then!!!  SQUEEEEEEEE!!! :X

Actor Ji Chang-wook has confirmed to join upcoming MBC epic starring Ha Ji-won and Joo Jin-mo.

Ji will take on a role of Sunje, the 16th emperor of the Yuan Dynasty of China, and form a love triangle with Ha and Joo’s characters in the historic drama tentatively titled “Empress Qi,” MBC announced through a press release Tuesday.

“Ji is the perfect fit for the role of Sunje since he has enough potential to lead the 50-part series and experience in historic series ‘The Warrior, Baek Dong-soo’,” an official with the drama’s producing firm Lee Kim Production was quoted as saying.

Born as the crown prince, the young khan suffers lots of hardships from early childhood after taking the imperial throne to his younger brother. He plays immature to save his life but holds deep anger inside him.

Set to premiere on October 21 after “Goddess of Fire” ends its run, “Empress Qi” is a 50-part epic about wise and attractive empress named Qi (Ha), the ancient-Korea-born empress who later becomes the ruler of the Yuan Dynasty of China.

Ji Chang-wook, who first appeared in the small screen in 2008, came into the limelight in KBS’s 2010 daily series “Smile Again” and SBS’s 2012 revenge drama “Five Fingers.”

Does anyone want to take over the first page of this topic? I'll be busy with college these upcoming months and won't have time to check on Soompi often. If anyone wants to take over, leave me a comment here and I'll ask one of the admins to make a transfer. I'm terribly apologetic about this!

Thanks to CherKell for taking over this topic!

Kim Min-jung to Join Cast of "Empress Ki" as an Antagonist to Ha Ji-won

90953455_zps33cc1387.jpg
Kim Min-jeong has been cast for the new MBC drama "Empress Qi".  She takes on the role of a character who doesn't get along with Ha Ji-won in the role of "Empress Qi".

Kim Min-jeong started in dramas when she was a child and also in the 2006 hit movie "Forbidden Quest". She has an appearance that suits her well with historical dramas.

Ha Ji-won and Joo Jin-mo have already been cast and started filming the drama as of the 18th last month. Kim Min-jeong leaves to China at the end of September to film the drama.

Meanwhile, "Empress Qi" is a 50-part drama about the love and life of a female dominator during the Yuan Dynasty. It is a drama written by Jeong Yeong-cheol and Jeong Kyeong-soon-I. Ha Ji-won takes on the role of a court lady who later becomes The Empress.


Oh this is gonna get REAL INTERESTING now!  From what I can decipher, Kim Min-jung has been casted for a Special Appearance in the drama as a yet-unnamed antagonist to Empress Ki.  I have never been a real fan of her acting (case in point, "The Thorn Birds" L-) ), so I'll reserve judgment until I see what she brings to the small screen.  Let's see how much of a beeyotch she's gonna be towards the Empress and Yuan Emperor -- she and Ji Chang-wook were a couple in real life around the time of his debut in 2007, but the relationship ended very badly.  (Emphasis on the BADLY part.)  I betcha the fire in their eyes will not be made of special effects, that's for sure!

A slight change in plans for JCW's schedule -- his heading to Jeju-do on 13 September for his last three performances of "The Days" musical now puts him to return to the set sometime in the middle of next week.  I've also heard some of the [unnamed] cast members will be travelling this weekend to China for outdoor location shootings.  Hopefully we'll see some movement picture-wise very soon!
