The problem is CJH is too tall and JNR is petite so to disguise the height difference, the girl needs high healed shoes. It's usually like that on any drama haha. Maybe they should have edited the sound instead

To be very honest, I forgot about that reason because I was too immerse in the drama (and that's why the high heel irked me) that I didn't notice the height. :lol: The woe of having tall co-worker...lol. 

 

I don't know how to do multi-quotes from other pages, but @laivla, I think in the preview, Sunny isn't giving him a second chance. I think they are doing a promotion or an event as a couple, and that's why she is smiling at him instead of glaring at him like she was in some parts of this preview.

I love to see Ubin-Sunny but I don't really care who end up with whom. What I need from this messy drama is the criminals should be punished. ED, LH, YR and the nanny. The mystery sould be open up. Ubin needs to take surgery soonest (writer seems forget about this kkkk) and back to Dongsik. And Sunny should be divorced and back to her fam. That's all. It is a bonus if we see Sunny-Ubin at the end. 

And please don't always blame ED for the wrongs LH has done. Yes he was miseducated. But he's an adult. The emperor. He can rendeem but he have to pay all the mistakes.

Ubin never tried to kill Sunny though. LH told him to do but WB ensure someone catching her when he push her to the river. He also asking why she back to the palace because it will be hard for him to take revenge while she's there.

 

Was going to mention the same thing, considering he did not get the operation, I would assume his health will start getting worst, didn't Sunny also say something about the doctor saying the medication will eventually not help. It probably will be addressed again in the last few eps.

Would i want to meet a character like Hyuk in real life? NO. I dont want to have an encounter with cray2 Hyuk. And i don't condone violence or verbal abuse or mental abuse. Only in dramaland can i try to tolerate this level of weirdness/craziness :sweatingbullets:

 

This! I would never want to meet someone like Hyuk - I don’t wanna die you feel. But this is dramaland and I watch these makjang shows for all the twists and turns and craziness. When I say I like Hyuk, I’m not condoning adultery, murder, or any of that scary stuff  - it ain’t that deep. He’s just a great and fascinating character and I find SSR really handsome and engaging XD I’m watching the show for fun; just let me root for the guy lol

 

Edit: I’m adding on to this. I’m reading Korean tweets saying that the show is increasing the number of episodes to 52. Is this true?

Soompi article on the stills:

:love: 

The production staff stated, “Oh Sunny and Chun Woo Bin’s feelings for each other are growing, but things get complicated as they appear at an event with their respective partners. The four characters’s tangled ties will bring unexpected secrets and twists to the story, so please anticipate the upcoming episodes.”

@booha, thank you for sharing your thoughts, chingu)

Seriously, it was very refreshing and pleasing for me to read your perspective and take on WB's character.  And I agree with you on most parts but I guess I still feel sore about the fact that EVERYONE are using Sunni as a step ladder to achieve their goal. And even if I can understand that sometimes it's choosing lesser of two evils for WB, I still can't help feeling upset on behalf of Sunni.

The last drop was WB's fake declaration of love. I still feel sore about it. 'Cause no matter how you look or interpret, it WAS fake at that moment. For all I see, WB's feelings for Sunni are still half-conscious for him. And at that time his intention was to irk LH. But it is a totally different matter for Sunni and she was swayed momentarily (you could clearly see it in her eyes) even though she knows she shouldn't be.

In some respect it's similar to the situation with princess SJ, even though I don't particularly like her but WB's behaviour is cruel, tactless and immoral.

Thus I want WB to suffer at least a little for his thoughtless confession. He never showed any signs of jealousy when it comes to Sunni. I think it's high time)

 

 

@katakwasabi, about the extension, while it's reasonable for the production company to add one more full episode to even out the airing schedule, I feel like extending for 4 more episodes (2 full episodes) could be dangerous.  'Cause there is a high risk turning the story even more makjang as it is. It's wise to keep close to the golden middle without overdoing it in pursuit of ratings. On the contrary such a big extension could lead to even bigger drop of ratings.

It's very important to know the right time when to stop. 

So I really hope they would not be adding more than one full episode if they decide to extend after all.

Sorry, I'm not following this kdrama from the first, unsure how many episode 40 or 48 that already confirmed. Maybe thats not enough episode to make a turn around and solve all the mistery,

 

Or they just wanna add something special

#wish there a show in the theater ... SSR-JNR-CJH sing a song together (three of them can singing)...

 

3 Fav song from them , #my imagination this will solve their relationship in this Kdrama

I bet everything on you - SSR (Ost. Sandglass Musical) 

Wind from the End of the Sky - JNR (Ost. Dong Yi) 

Don't Look Back - CJH (Ost. The Heirs)

That preview is making me giddy....it's all Sunny-Lee Hyuk moments....that smile at the end of the preview, so gentle, so tender, just melts my heart. It gives me more inspiration to write more chapters on my own royal romance.

 

Check it out here.

 

https://www.asianfanfics.com/story/view/1386079/oh-sunny-s-diary-lee-hyuk-s-confusing-me-romance

 

I don't understand what's happening. Why is there such a focus on Lee Hyuk and Sunny? It's like he's become the main lead, and it's confusing. The misunderstandings between him and the Empress, the sweet moments between him and her, his attempts to help her while yearning for her in private are as though they are the OTP of the drama. If the writer had decided on a romance between Lee Hyuk and Sunny from the beginning, this confusion wouldn't have arisen. He should have been made a good guy from the beginning. But because the villain is suddenly transformed into a sweet, charming guy, it has been such a twist and is so fascinating. If I feel this way, are others feeling this way, as well?

If you watch this writer’s drama, you will know this is her style . She fleshes out all her villains very well . @Lmangla my go to chingu when it comes to all thinks makjang  explained this before. Maybe she can further enlighten us since she’s watched many of her dramas

Yeah I dont get what makes this so different then the others?

 

1.He looks like he loved  his empress then he cokes  her and push her in the watcher

2.He looks like he loves, Sunny then he tried to kill and frame her

3.Looks like he loves the other girl but then he trys to burn her alive.

4.Looks like he loves his grandmother then tired to stab her but she was not there.

 

He always looks like he is  in love but what happens when Sunny and WB truly falls in love with each other?

Thanks for this . I think it is clear why LH in spite of his cuteness in the last few episodes cannot be Sunny’s end game . As much as this is a drama ( and a crazy one to boot)  I cannot understand how someone could fall for someone who tried to kill them as well @stroppyse . I can’t even tolerate adultery , what more murder .

52 / 2 = 26 ...are they extending by two more episodes? Mmmmn i personally rather not . No more dragging . The good guys need to see some progress.

From another perspective, eventhough the show has suddenly forgot about WB health the last few eps, WB actions is also due to the fact he is literally running on short time, he probably feels like he doesn't have a lot of time, his focus has been on revenge so far but its starting to shift to also wanting to protect Sunny. Also his plan maybe questionable but at least Sunny knows about it.

From the preview he doesn't seem particularly thrilled with LH attention on Sunny, I don't think he knows what his feelings for Sunny are yet but probably may come to realize it via the plan.

 

Saying that I do think that WB focus on revenge has not exactly been healthy, to the point you don't want to get life saving surgery also what about DS? His not thinking about the consequences.

kekeke... you make me sound like an expert! :sweatingbullets::lol:

 

so here's my previous post on why there is NO way lee hyuk and sunny can be end game.

 

 

so @ChewyChocolate asked why is there such a focus on lee hyuk and sunny? the reason is very simple. the lead of the show is sunny. and the evil guy is hyuk. and so there is a tango between the two. we see this same sort of dance in the writer's previous works as well but there wasn't romantic vibe but instead a very strong competitive witch like behaviour.

 

take jang bori which is between 2 women who grow up as sisters or temptation of wife which is between 2 ex-friends. the rivalry and antics was fun to watch. the romance was really a side plot. a close comparison to empress dignity would be temptation of angel where the guy was a lead and the villain was his ex-wife. at one point, he plays with her mind and she starts liking him (she doesn't know it is her ex though! :lol:). you wonder if he will be swayed, forgive her and get back together -- nope! it is all sorts of craziness. in the end, she meets the fate of all villains however, sad her sob story is...

 

people find the actor SSR very charming (rightfully so) but makjang is not one of those genres where people easily forgive and let go of the past. one of the reasons I find makjang endearing is that people's reactions are realistic in that they struggle to forgive. they hold on to anger and the hurts. the real arc for the leads is how to retain their humanity and not lose themselves in their quest for revenge. how does one let go of the anger and hurt? they will find love but their actual journey is not about finding love (unlike rom-coms) -- it is about making peace with the past. that is the journey of any lead in a makjang story.

 

so sunny has been deeply hurt and is not going to smile back at lee hyuk. she is NOT going to let him into her heart again because of the things he has done. instead, she will bide her time as she is still under danger and try to regain what she has lost -- her reputation and honour.

 

in one of my favourite dailys, the villain gives this sob story on why she did what she did. her husband responds "so what? everyone has a sob story. that doesn't give you the right to treat others that way."  we already see sunny asking "what right does lee hyuk have to treat others this way?" -- this isn't a romantic vibe. this is righteous anger.

Two episodes extension is ok. But 4? Really? Maybe the writer will make all died characters alive again..kkkkk

Waiting for double dates and we'll see how Sojin's character is. Hopefully she isn't rude towards Sunny otherwise her little sister will be mad XD

Just as I figured. An extension is in talks. I have a feeling it will be confirmed because this writer is really well known for extending her dramas. Will it be more draggy? Maybe, unless there manages to be new "exciting" problems caused by the villains.

They mean 4 episodes 30 min each. which is 2 full episodes for 60 min. If they extend for two more episodes (4 episodes for 30 min.) there will be an open space in the airing chart again so I really don't see the logic. Make it 1 or 3 episodes to even out the numbers why 2?:sweatingbullets: Unless they plan on airing another special episode somewhere in between.
