K-netz always use the excuse LH's pitiful child for what he has done while he actually free to order something in his palace...kkkkk.... And I don't like writernim making the empress like an easy person to change her heart from WB to LH or vice versa. LH's funny side make them forget WB sadness at all. And for me, it's more like creepy than funny. They want his character die just for the sake to make Sunny-LH is the endgame. Aigooo.... If there is someone who needs a happy ending for this series, it should go to Woobin (and Dongsik).

I said I wasn't but I lied, this drama...yo I've been doing nothing but lmao! 

 

Sunny is wrecking Empress Dowager with grace and style and I'm living for it! XD Sunny just playing 'the game of thrones' and winning is just awesome. Augh, off topic but i cannot wait for the last season of got, *mentally preparing myself to witness all my fav characters dying cause GRRM is a sadist and i'm a masochist XD

 

Mother Dearest has the funniest facial expressions I have ever seen. Shin Eun Kyung and Shin Sung Rok were cast perfectly as mother and son their facial expressions, I can't! 

 

Lee Hyuk is cray cray for realz, omg I'll be disappointed if SSR doesn't become a lead a rom com. But for real though, why did this crazy nut come out of the car, popping off guns at the paparazzi? LOL What?!

 

Also writers stop showing poor baby Lee Hyuk, he's still cray-cray even though your trying to make my heart clench at the abuse, at the neglect. TT_TT

 

I'mma need Nanny Seo to back off! Sunny isn't that type of woman, if she was she would have already shown signs of mistreating Ari like that, she's not you! Don't play with my baby princess' heart like that. Srsly, I petition for Sunny to adopt Ari at this point. Dad is either going to end up dead or in an asylum and mom is getting life with no parole. 

 

She can take Dong Shik too, giving guard Kang never recovers from the trauma he was put through :(

 

BTW, I hope it was the guard that witness Nanny Seo killing So Hyun. 

 

I wonder if Sunny is going to step in and save Woo Bin from Lee Hyuk again? Ahh and crazy LH is back again, XD

For real tho...Woo Bin, my dude you have to tone down the heart eyes for the Empress until she's single again. 

 

Lee Hyuk desperate to keep Sunny by his side....wow...I have no words for this...I want to say deluded but I think he's just blindly pretending to not acknowledge that Sunny might have developed feelings for Woo Bin and vice versa, he at least is self aware that her attempts at being nice is not because she really means it and that she hates him 5ever, prob with a dash of pity. But desperation can make people do crazy things so...

 

The dynamic between this trio is going to be interesting to watch next week. 

 

I want to feel bad for Yu Ra but bish is crazy too and her treatment of Dong Shik is the worst. 

 

Sunny and her family being savage towards the emperor, yass!!

 

Ehh, writers the whole 'WB has 3 months or less to live' better be for drama sake. Like you better not kill him off or people will riot, just saying. 

 

I mean I have always been a lover of foeyay/enemy, immoral and crack ships but I'm still here for the good healthy slow burn that is Woo Bin/Sunny or Bunny as I like to call them XD. 

 

I'll be fine if Sunny doesn't end up with anyone but I don't want WB dying, like, come on!

 

I think that's it. I'm not making anymore speculations as I'm watching this as the drama unfolds I'm just hoping for a happy ending that's all.

@foreverempress Thank you very much for the information. 

 

Sunny was so badass in the last episode she finally learned how to play the game in the palace. I especially loved it when she used her learned self defense on LH. I also love how her and her family are not buying into that goofiness of LH. Sunny´s character has come a long way and I love the strong woman she has become. 

and find happiness again. 

 

 

I am glad that she is firm in her resolve; that is the only way she is going to survive. Those family scenes were too funny. I died when Sunny's father through a claim at him to eat. Her father still has honor in him. I remember how he acted when Sunny almost died from the crane accident; he was baffled as to why Hyuk ran because the man, in their culture, is supposed to protect his wife.

Woobin deserves happy ending..

For the first time im crying at the part when WB send sunny to her room after the harsh training..

How hard it is for him to keep all his feeling by himself..i believed so hyun's farther knows that NWS already fall in love with sunny based on their conversation after the met with the doctor.

 

NWS doesnt have any freedom since his mom was dead..he cant show his feeling towards DS and sunny freely

At least for sunny she still has her farther and sister..

I know right that scene was so hilarious :joy:

I´m really proud of the father...thinking back to the beginning where he literally sold his daughter...he has also come a long way.

sorry to cut your post short...but that´s such a cute name for them :wub:. And at this point I would also be fine if she doesn´t end up WB...as long as they  succeed in bringing down the royal family and find happiness.

The episodes aired this week was both intense and heart wrenching. I am quite disheartened to read the netizens comments. It actually scares me that people would like characters to be killed just because the story is not going the direction that they want. How cruel it is to say “bullet.. do your job”

below is my personal opinion on this drama and characters. No offense intended 

 

LH:

the redemption arc is not working for me. What he is doing now ( as many chingus have commented in this forum) is to gain that love which he never had with his parents from Sunny. He had Everything in his hands with SH and his unborn babies but he CHOSE not to trust the woman he loved and pushed her into the lake and LEFT her there. Yes.. he did not kill her himekf but he still has to be accountable for the first act of trying to choke her and push her into the water.

WS’s mom: yes.. it was an accident but he instead of reporting the hit and run he CHOSE to hide the body in his car and sought help from that evil witch MYR.. played into her hands and till TODAY, does not even feel a single remorse for doing so and ordering to kill the only witness WS

 

i totally agree he is both a psychopath and sociopath. Whatever he s doing now is to hang on to Sunny and hoping that she will still accept him despite knowing the things he had done. I don’t believe he realizes the depth of his wrongdoings and how much his choice had affected the of others. He is not taking responsibility yet.

he is actually quite dense too.. how can an emperor who has bed so many women cannot even read Sunny’s body language when he attempts to hug her or even hold her hands.. that si beyond me

his true redemption would be acknowledging all his wrongdoings and sincerely apologize to WS/WB, SH’s dad and free Sunny from the palace and himself

 

WB/WS

He is not a saint. He is just an ordinary man whose life was turned upside down overnight. He CHOSE to join the imperial guard for his revenge. It was his CHOICE to get close to princess SJ. If this man is totally blinded for revenge, he would have just gone and out a bullet in LH and MYR many times but again he CHOSE to work with Sunny to bring down the imperial family. Did he feel good trying to get into the good books of SJ?. Did he feel good trying to kill sunny and threaten her family?..I am sure he did not. He told Sunny.. I did horrible things to you , tried to kill you. He came clean with her and continuously risking his life to protect her.

 

these 2 episodes brought tears to my eyes. He is finally showing his emotions.. anger.. frustration.. despair.. tears and even those precious smiles which we could not even catch a glimpse of in two thirds of the show. The scene with Dongshik tugged on my emotions so much. DS is the son of WS’s enemy but once he made the decision to look after him, thee was no turning back.

the despair in his eyes when he knows he only has 3 months to live and I could feel the desperation he had in training Sunny so that she can stand on her own when he is not there. It broke my heart when he begged teacher Byun to look after the empress and at the same time acknowledging that he is not the position to love her. Please don’t even tell me that the romance is forced. This is really forbidden love

 

as for the 3 evil ladies!... I don’t even know why they are blessed with children. Horrible manipulating moms!

 

i know this is a makjang drama.. had to remind myself to read @Lmangla post many times.. don’t expect romance and the evil will get their punishment. I can only hope for a well deserving ending for all these characters. Even there is no kiss between the OTP, at least please let them have 1 hug or skin ship that not un-intentional. Let these 2 acknowledge their love for one another.

 

sorry for the long post.. still in tears after watching the last 2 episodes:tears:

I’m happy WB had more screen time with Sunny and especially with DS in EP37/38. How they interacted with each other was so contrary to what happened to people around them.   The simple gesture of DS putting his little finger in WB’s big hand was so touching.  It said so much about what kind of relationship they have. As with Sunny and WB.  Their dialog and body language were plain and unadorned yet there was deep trust and care.   Whereas LH carried on with such theatricality to attract Sunny yet it’s obvious why he can no longer move her. He used those hollow acts once to attract her.  Now Sunny can see WB and LH side by side.  WB stood by her all night in the dark while she curled up in the bathtub while holding on to a baseball bat. That’s the person whom Sunny leans on in that crazy palace.  

 

Spoiler

 

 

 

 

 

The most memorable moment in EP38 has to be with ED.  Yup the punishment for ED began.  Thankfully I don’t have to wait till the end to see villains in miserable agony.

8. [+251,-7] You can't make any sense out of this drama. You just have to watch it, thinking of this as a comedy and you'll enjoy it. (source: melohwa)

 

Well said knet. Well said :lol:

 

Anyways...


I don't mind Sunny - Woobin - Hyuk trio at all. Sunny and WB needs someone cray in their lives to do the cray2 work for them. And Hyuk is the best person to do that.

 

In the latest ep, WB and Sunny 'used' Hyuk to their benefit. Hyuk want cray, pulled out 2 guns and shot paparazzies like no one elses business. He must have great aim to not actually hit anyone in that car. Lol. 

 

If only they can actually be friends, and there's no secrets, killings, revenge going in between, these three would be a hoot to watch. 

 

And..i say this again..i bet SSR is having the time of his life acting Hyuk out. When else can you pull guns and shoot around like that. And he's stable in a minute suddenly bonkers in the next. Same goes to Empress Dowager, her expressions are gold hahaha.

I know I have posted this once & will repost this again. Hyuk has Borderline Personality Disorder and fits under the subtypes of petulant and disruptive borderline. No, he does not have a brain tumor, any of my fellow clinicians that specialize in this disorder can tell you that his behavior is par the course. Change is possible for him, but it will not happen over night because he does not know how to emotionally regulate.  Here is what I posted a while ago:

 

The emperor Hyuk's problem, from a armchair diagnosis perspective, is that he has borderline personality disorder full stop from his fears of abandonment, difficulty emotion regulating unless he engages in impulsive behavior or some other destructive in the attempt to regulate, lack of trust, attention-seeking, insecure attachment issues, jealousy, chronic feelings of emptiness, pervasive instability in interpersonal relationships, paranoid ideations, SPLIT/ BLACK OR WHITE THINKING etc.

 

HYUK meets ALL DSM IV & DSM 5 CRITERIA.

 

For people that struggle with borderline personality disorder or have borderline traits, borderline emotions and behaviors swing from left to right. It is hard for them to emotionally regulate which is why they often engage in self-harming behaviors rather it's cutting, using drugs, drinking too much alcohol, highly and overly sexual, etc. They tend to be highly anxious and are often misdiagnosed with general anxiety disorder or bipolar. Someone that has borderline personality, their feelings emotions weigh on them like 20 elephants stacked on their chest.

 

This is how Hyuk can want to kill Suni last month & love and protect her this month. This is why he can love his grandma  and then turn around and try to kill her  and then have guilt about it .  This is how he can be in love with Yura and have her almost killed twice... it is that black or white/split thinking. You're either for him or against him,  you're either in or out,  for him there is rarely an  in-between. He has parental trust issues with abuse which is one of the few underlining precursors of borderline personality disorder.

 

 

Thank you for this informative writings. This makes me pity on him. Yes, he is wrong. I am mad at him too.But, having to live his entire life carrying the trauma and abuse in himself while shouldering the pressure as a crown prince and emperor must be really hard for him that he slowly develop this disorder. He must have been living in hell in his entire life. With that said, I really want him to get a treatment. He needs to receive treatment so that he can know and acknowledge that he has commit crimes. That's how a good drama should end. Rather than revenge, justice should win this war. Sunny and woo bin too should get a better future and happiness after all the sufferings. A messy drama like this at least should be tie neatly.

Hello, I'm not new to the forum but I'm new to the topic. I just had to comment on one thing. I absolutely loved the scene and the way Lee Hyuk pulled out two guns to shoot at the paparazzi. I laughed so hard.

Every time I watch an episode, I think I laugh too much. Also, I think it is just difficult for me to imagine Shin Sung Rok playing a nice character after his role as Lee Hyuk, Oh Tae Suk and Lee Jae Kyung.
 

I actually do not really care if the ending is sad. I think as long as the truth is revealed and those that deserve punishment receive them, I'm good with that. But then, it all depends on the writer.

Love your insights for the characters, especially WS/WB part:tears: jbeanie1709!!

 

I have a feeling that KJS is going to be the answer for all , he is the only common person that is linked with everything( Empress SH, Uncle Byun, MYR , LH ,DS ,ED maybe nanny too?) Based on LH impulsive and heartless, if he could push empress SH and let her drown by nanny , kill MYR & WS without second thoughts, edict ex-chief guard to suicide , I don’t understand why he wanna keep KJS alive in asylum cell ? (To find out if he really have affair with empress SH, nah LH doesn’t even listen to explaination looking at MYR,ex-chief guard incident?) The only possibility I tot of is KJS is kept alive by ED  becos of the island (maybe the island is where the imperial kept all their gold inheritance till date like a massive safebox?) Actually, the whole plot ultimately is still about the island, if empress SH didn’t found out about the island she wouldn’t have accused of adultery by ED , at the same time MYR wouldn’t think KJS abandoned her and would lead to a series of misfortune events that happens to Sunni/WS ... :sweatingbullets:I believe only when the secret of the island is reveal then we will know the end. 

 

Still i I very much hope WS/WB can stay alive even if he can’t be with Sunni, afterall poor guy , he is been thru so much at least deserve a simple life with DS right?

Wednesday for Strained Situation,
Thursday for Funny Situation
(When see 35-36 I'm afraid if there is no more fun in this K-drama, but I'm wrong... actually I still enjoy the fun of this K-Drama)

 

Dong Shik
He is brave, bold, and have a good characteristic. He doesn't afraid toward A Ri position, he treated her as a usual friend. Sometimes this make A Ri jealousy.

PM
Is he stupid or what? He fall for Kang Hee.

So Jin
She is real pure heart and innocent, she don't know anything, she just live stupidly in the royal family, trust them blindly. When she know the truth, she even not show her decision.

Yoon
He make a move now. But that's not solve the mystery yet. He will bet all he owned for Hel Ro after everything is clear, but I wish he don't do that except he want the Empire end.

Hel Ro
She is so love to her sister, she wish Yoon will help her sister till the end. She is funny when LH come to her house. LOL.

Dad
Dad, you know if Yoon is a too good for Hel Ro, but when he realize he is Crown Prince, he is shock till sick. LOL. He hate the imprerial family that much. His action toward LH when he lunch with his daugther so funny.

Byun
His anger in the right time, just make a new drama in the palace. He don't wanna make NWS die just like that. He also warn NWS aka Woo Bin toward his feeling to Sunny.

Ex-chief guard Joo
His move outside the palace is a big danger to Woo Bin.

Dongsik's father is the key witness here. I hope the drama won't be dragged. I found some PPL yesterday which bit disturbing.

It is funny that from all of media and live show of Sunny, none of police come and do investigation to ED. This drama become more and more unbelievable. They should back to the right track otherwise the ratiings will go down week after week.

I respect Byun for warning Woobin about his love for Sunny, because no matter what, Sunny is a married lady and loving someone would make his heart weak for this revenge strategy. I'm sure Woobin is really in love with her but not too sure about Sunny's feelings. At this stage, I think Sunny put solving the criminality in palace as her top priority. And I could feel she also can't be too mean to the emperor. And looking at her mom's death isn't Leehyuk's fault, I think she could forgive him at the end. But again, I don't think she's loving him either. From what we see, she needs Woobin and don't hesitate to show that she needs him. Whether it's love or just kinda other feeling, not sure.

My favorite scene last night episode is Ari dubbed ED. It was so hillarious. She's so cute and talented. She gives new color for this heavy drama.

Waiting for BTS Nara-Jin Hyuk in exercise room. They usually so sweet to each other off screen.
