Why'd marrying Hyuk butcher Sunny-Bin. Just because one marries wrong doesn't mean she has to hold on to the wrong marriage. Sunny is not an Empress of Joseon Era, She's the Empress of modern era. Lee Hyuk is a wrong partner for her in so many levels but because of prejudice she has to stick to the wrong marriage?? I think we're forgetting that Sunny came to imperial Family second time for revenge not to secure Lee Hyuk's affection.

 

The drama promised us fight against injustice not succumbing to prejudice. Sunny-Bin found each other while fighting for this injustice. I don't see any wrong in pursuing their romance. Sunny now wants to bring down Imperial Family. If the monarchy got destroyed in the process she won't be Empress anymore. 

 

I can recall three successful  divorce in Kdrama  and one of them is from a prime time family drama rest are mini series. I'm sure there are more. While watching kdrama for almost 6 years, I thought Kdrama projects more open minded ideas despite many prejudice existing in their society.

 

But right now, my intuition is telling me that the writer will not be showing us anything directly on Sunny-Wangshik romance after the mess they made with Na Wang Shik character and CJH.

I didn't mean anything deep with my sentence. I just think it would be better if Sunny was not married at all. Better options for her and a higher probability for NWS, less for Hyuk. Of course being married does not mean one needs to be in it forever especially when its wrong and depressing and heartbreaking. 

 

I dunno what to say about the preview. Other than it is brighter than the last ep. Which is surprising. I expected angst.

 

@flutterby06 about MotA ending

Spoiler

It was dissapointing to me. I was active in the thread at that time, with livecaps and all. Imo, it started going downhill after ep 4, and just went tumbling down towards the end. Especially after the writer's interview before the finale. 

 

I was complaining 1 month ago about MotA writernim's interview, little did I expect 1 month later TLE would surprise me with the unavailability of the lead character in its finale. Hua3

Hahaha. I usually watch primetime dramas, and i can only recall 2 dirvoces on the fly : one in 'on the way to the airport' and recently in 'liver or die'. There might be others that I forgot. I did watch weekender My Daughter Seoyoung but I can't recall if they got divorced or not. :sweatingbullets:

 

Pinch we've a common.

On the Way to Airport. Another two I was talking about were "Twenty Again." and " Wang's family."

 

My Daughter Seo Young

Spoiler

@katakwasabi, had a divorce but the viewers knew that the divorce was not because the leads were out of love. The divorce was just a key to give some space to their love for each other. I love My Daughter Seo Young. :wub:

Preview has mostly the same garbage scenes as the other  episodes.

 

Writer is obsessed with giving kiss scene to Lee Hyuk. I mean do we still need fillers!! I think I'll have to wait to watch last two episode in one go so I can get done with this drama palli palli.

(But Sunny please hold on girl)

Saw the preview, i do not understand what they were saying but i ABSOLUTELY HATE the fact that the pd is still creating kissing moments for SN & LH :angry:

 

i adore the late grand empress while she was alive, but i feel her action of suicide is her choosing the easy way out while leaving all the burdens and responsibility to SN. That is absolutely unfair to SN. Especially if SN cannot divorce LH. 

Just like what @flutterby06 shared, i hope the show doesn't butcher SN's character development by making her weak against prejudice and stay married to LH.

So what if many think LH is repentant and really loves SN now? He is still mentally unstable, can flip anytime and needs professional help. SN should not be made to stay by him to "cure or change him with love".

And at this point if they make SN feels touched and falls in love with LH, i'll be swearing off this scriptwriter and pd

I imagine it might be confusing for the cast to act in TLE..especially SSR. Imagine being creepy, cray2 in one scene and then clumsy in another. If viewers feel confused, i suppose the cast is even more confused. Hahahahaha

but seriously...they must have loads of fun acting this scene hahahahaha :lol:

 

 

Anyways...i watched the latest preview..

I think its build up for Hyuk's downfall in ep 51-52. I can't imagine why else is Sunny doing all this with Hyuk. She must have a plan in mind. She won't do this just because. I have this feeling she has something up her sleeve.

There were supposed to be celebration for Lee Hyuk's 10th year as Emperor celebration remember?

a rough translation

Sunny is saying to the press "it's still not time (it's far away) to celebrate Emperor's 10th anniversary."

Sunny to Lee Hyuk "Congratulations, Pehya. You've worked hard!"

 

Edit: wanted to add that- (she used a mocking tone :P)

 

@Super Gal99

 

Oh your gifs...:heart: Laughing so hard specially at this one.:lol: Fits perfectly after watching the preview today. :rage:

Thanks for the trans. It makes me believe that Sunny has something up her sleeve even more.

 

Off topic

Spoiler

About MotA. It's my personal opinion that it went downhill from ep 4. But i held on till the end. Or somewhat end. It was an interesting premise, but i found that some things just doesnt click and i question a lot of what was happening in the game and outside the game. Hahaha

 

There are other viewers that find it enjoyable till the end, unfortunately I was not one of them. I had fun joining discussions though. So all is good hehe :lol:

Anyone can help to translate the preview?:D

 

Kang Hee looks so mad.. I'm afraid what will she do , ED also still not get the punishment until the critical point (ending of the story) she still have a power. how if she use her power to release SKH?

Why Yu Ra and also Sunny run. 

 

Why Sunny not comming to the ceremony together with LH, ED, So Jin and A Ri?? 

 

I'm so courious about the time... 

Sunny looks using same brown color outher. Sometimes she hangout with LH and A Ri, other time give speech in the ceremony, other time run with Yu Ra, and then talk with LH... can't imagine about timelapse and create a story, but for sure it's night when LH and Sunny talk each other, and LH turn around his body from Sunny. 

Wonder if Lee Hyuk let Sunny go... (but I'm also afraid, is she not the Empress anymore?)  

 

A Ri just looks like a pure child.. wish have good dad and  mom.

 

But I think, why she know if Lee Hyuk will love Sunny in the end, and when they have argument, infront of A Ri, she said looks like a love fight, and just cute. A Ri jugment toward Sunny from the start is also nice. Courious how she saw Lee Hyuk (fake) love from the first, but looks good in A Ri's eye. I know if Lee Hyuk also give unconcious smile when hear Sunny sing a song (make Yu Ra jealous), his heart is moving toward Sunny for sure. 

 

Who can't in love with Sunny?? It's a stupid person. Stupidly Lee Hyuk make her away from him, she hates him in the end. No matter how much sweet moment that he tried to create, Sunny still get angry, it's hard to forgive Lee Hyuk.

 

Why I think, better give NWS his old appearance than other person.

I kinda agree with soompi on this....

 

The secret behind the Grand Empress Dowager’s death

And finally, the other big reveal of the week was one that we had been waiting a long time for: the truth behind who murdered the Grand Empress Dowager (Park Won Sook). And the answer was something that none of us quite expected: sick with guilt for enabling Hyuk and the Empress Dowager to become so powerful and corrupt, the Grand Empress Dowager was killed by… herself?!

Spoiler

 

 

Park-Won-Sook-2-e1550391029526.jpgPark-Won-Sook-3-e1550391048346.jpg

 

This reveal was definitely shocking, and rather problematic: it seems a bit silly that the old woman would have ended her life without bothering to tell Sunny, who she had grown so fond of — and, in addition, that she would have killed herself knowing that in doing so she was leaving Sunny alone and friendless in the palace with all of her horrible relatives. Perhaps this would have seemed like a more noble sacrifice if the Grand Empress Dowager’s logic made more sense, but as it stands, it seems rather flawed:

Park-Won-Sook-4-e1550391081402.jpgPark-Won-Sook-5-e1550391118480.jpg

It is true that both Hyuk and the Empress Dowager had attempted to kill Grandmother that night. But in leaving evidence of both of their attempts on her life, in reality the Grand Empress Dowager made it impossible to determine who exactly was responsible, causing neither of them to be punished.

Spoiler

 

Park-Won-Sook-6-e1550391135937.jpgPark-Won-Sook-7-e1550391162876.jpg

 

Even if her death had led to the exposure of Hyuk and the Empress Dowager, it seems like a much more roundabout and risky way to do so than to simply uncover the truth behind Empress So Hyun’s death, which was what the Grand Empress Dowager had been set on doing before her family members tried to kill her. Grandmother’s suicide felt anticlimactic, but we still have one week left in “The Last Empress,” so it will be interesting to see how the drama wraps up its loose ends!

 

I also agree on some other stuff in the article below:

I saw this tweet and got interested in knowing how they messed up?

LOL... I can totally relate to the twitter's reaction, maybe I should take a break from kdrama too... I love WSL so much until that last few minutes.

Maybe that's what we'll get for NWS's character too -- only the substitute actor's back is shown... :lol:

Notice also that the clothes Sunny is wearing was the same when she was running with MYR in the day time, and then when LH spoke to her in the evening time.

In the preview, when Sunny took the podium and said her first line, LH was still seated on the stage. When she said congratulations, there were 2 guards standing beside LH. I'm guessing he's being "escorted" out.

Had to repost this again with additional comments..

 

Seee...granny said this a long time ago...

Park-Won-Sook-Lee-Elijah-Shin-Sung-Rok.g

Hyuk is beyond help! Beyond it! Even I said the same after he went cray2 for the n-th time.

 

Hyuk! what could have been if you actually did not kill anyone, you were not violent, you did not have anger issues or was not made to be super cray from ep 1 to ep 48, i would have an easier time watching this drama. Less complicated mind bending justifications needed to justify why I find a villain so interesting. Hahahahaha..but if not for his crimes he wont be a villain. This is so confusing. So confusing. :lol:

I loved this scene the most, both Nara and SSR nailed it.

She didnt cry for help nor allowed him to strangle her and instead bites back

Still a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS for the casts and crew for all their hard efforts. The reward trip will be for 3 nights starting on 3rd March and they'll be heading off to Guam. Im still wondering if CJH will attend.:confused:

I like the kissing moment very much,they are charming together.:wub:But I think there won't be a happy ending for them :tears:
