[Drama 2018-2019] Empress Dignity / The Last Empress, 황후의 품격

Recommended Posts

He made her miserable 99% of the time doing this drama thats not love in any form, they tacked om 2 more episodes that where still rush and without one of their major leads. I have no idea why they  did it this way but I know I am majority annoyed how they handed it all.

 

1.He tired to kill her many times, his abusive natural towards Sunny is somehow played off in this drama

2.But that is thrown aside because  so  loony toon all of a sudden.I found that disgusting to watch after what he has done.Nothing about that was funny or fun to me.

3.He forced kiss her then choke then we get the last 2 episodes and OMG he so niceeeee! :rolleyes:

4.I not going goign to feel sorry for LH in any way he was  a crappy person the vast majority of the drama, a few  unselfish acts  wont change that

 

5.Then of course WS who was faceless the last episodes die in that way, without seeing his revenge though.Teh person  that has been hurt so much throughout this drama just poof.Oh but I am suppose to care about LH dramatic death psshh.

 

 


I know some people wont agree but those are my though. I dont think I ever felt this uncomfortable watching a drama. This drama still feels very unfinished after so many  episodes

lol sarcasm. still ddint change what i feel bout this drama. yes thats love. he sincerely love sunny. :rolleyes:

everyone deserves a second chance. I believe hyuk finally comes to his sense in the last episode and reedemed himself. :D

he is actually nice if u watch the drama carefully and observe it. he does help sunny and nws multiple times in the middle of the drama. SSR as actor did a good job in potraying this character, he doesnt need to say it also we can see from his face. 

 

Hyuk death is so dramatic, tragic and cruel . but he dies proudly with sunny by his side and i believe sunny did forgive him :rolleyes:

well, so sad NWS have death like that too. its unfair. just a burning body and a cemetry scene. WTF? this is also wrong. people watch it for his revenge and all that. but in the end they killed of his character bcause of extending the drama and wasting on unnecessary scene.  :phew:

 

the ending feel rush but that ending scene when the palace become a museum , did anyone feel goosebump watching that. also feel a bit sad. its also scary when they focus on ED face when she repeating those words while in prisoner. I cant understand also that why she ddint die yet, didnt she got executed sentence.. did they miss this or what. why she still alive with choi..? LOL :w00t:

 

the production team become greedy when the ratings goes high. thats when it become a mess and loss it amazing pace.how come NWS character jjust end like that when thats when the story started. there is no real closure between Hyuk n NWS..

But its okay. I live for the extraness in TLE. Doesnt make my heartbreak for Hyuk any less though :tears:

 

Anyways, have you guys ever considered that the final script might have been changed because CJH was not available? It might be NWS was the one who was supposed to die like Hyuk, while professing his love and all. But since CJH is not available, they need to change it up. It is a possibility. But who knows, right?

I guess the final revelation is that, LH's true love is not Oh Sunny, but NWS. For NWS, he faced his problems and actively try to do something good. With Sunny, he was still escaping his errors and trying to put it behind him. Sunny never changed him...it was NWS's sacrifice, his death, that changed LH. And I guess Oh Sunny was crying at LH's death because she was mad that LH gets to join his beloved NWS in death. You see, NWS died to save LH (and Sunny just happened to be there...so yeah, he saved her too). Poor Sunny, could only cried in frustration when she realized that the true love of LH was NWS and NWS's true love was LH...and her? She was the third wheel all along. 

 

That's how I am going to interpret this ending.:phew:

Although Lee Hyuk wanna take down his mother (ED). Till the end of his life, Lee Hyuk still loving his mother. He die just like his mother wish, he keep on silent being framed by his mother. He is accept what's all his mother done for him. :bawling:

Sssoooo Hyuk gets some sort of redemption on NWS's dime. An not one person seem to mourn NWS. The main start of the whole revenge plot, gets not a dang thing.  :blink:

Unless Sunny is a masochist her ending up with LH never made no sense and thankful they didn't. Plus Min Yura gets to play mummy to a kid she was willing to watch die just because she can't remember!?? How can those who know her deeds even stomach seeing her anyway near Dong Shik. :blink:

Urgh well at least the stuck to the last empress storyline..... and the 3 witches went to jail. 

 

Gonna miss the EDW's facial expressions. Shin Eun Kyung was awesome. She made  laugh so much these last few weeks. After all the pomp and circumstance she was just a two bit drug dealer. :joy:

I'm so disappointed in how this drama ended. It was a lot of foolishness thrown into to end. What mother wouldn't feel horrible, life changing guilt after what they did to their own child? Not this mother---It's just too much. The bad people got payback, but it wasn't satisfying---it was disappointing.

I am sad with the ending but that is the best since the title is The Last Empress. This drama reminds me of Mr Sunshine.  Now i know that if a drama has more than 1 male lead, they will all die and  the female lead will end up alone :P

 

on another note, i thought that the chemistry between JNR and SSR is eplosive.  They need to do another drama together  :D

I can't help but keep wondering which part of the finale was as planned from initial writing and which part was new. Somehow I feel that NWS and LH were both meant to die in the end. NWS with the bullet in his head and 3 months left. And both having professed that they'll die to protect Sunny. So the main focus has always been on Sunny, as the last Empress.

 

Sure they tried to develop some romantic feels between Sunny and NWS, but maybe it's just a side story to show that Sunny is not alone and she has a support inside the crazy palace.

 

As for LH, I thought it was normal for Sunny to feel such great loss for his death. He is after all her first crush, first love of so many years, her husband. Although she might have hated him for a while, I am sure that feeling of love is still present in that big heart of Sunny. She never wanted LH to die. She wanted him to acknowledge all his wrongdoings, ask for forgiveness and pay for it. That seems to be the main thing she wanted, an apology from a repentant heart. When watching with subs, I cried a mess again during LH's dying scene.

This scene, right? Yeah, it gives me epic chills. Kind of reminds you of Titanic.

The camera direction, bgm and that simple caption at the end... perfect scene for an ending.

Here’s my thought on the ending.. what kind of ending is this we don’t see NWS and the way he just die like that was so stupid and no crying scenes from anyone of his death.. and there we have NYUk who’s a jerk and the way he treated oh sunny in the past and try to kill her  and he got so much fans crying at his death and no one is talking about NWS.. I am so dissapointed I watch this drama because of him..

I too always though both would die. From the moment NWS didn't get the op he was marked for death. LH has also been a coward there's no way he'd end up in jail, he'd have killed himself, plus he's just done way to much to suddenly be redeemed and live happily ever after so only other option is death. The moment they started the comedy LH and starting trying to make the creep seem pitiful and redeemable the only option left would be some sort of self sacrifice to give a kinda of see he really was nice deep down inside kinda vibe.

SSR role as Lee Hyuk is right choice. SSR playing Lee Hyuk role make him more recognized. He's playing a lot of drama before, but... I never recognize him.. 

 

His appearance as Emperor so outstanding... he act cute, poor, and villain character in the sametimes. Before this he also act in romcom, play in music theaterical, take villain character, double personality as a psyco, so he get some experience to play Lee Hyuk character. 

 

Great success for him... JNR is his best partner couple for him,

Yes to this! I just see a lot of viewers commenting of how the end should be and stuff. Just wanted to chime in. Lol

 

Maybe we are amongst the select few that appreciates the ending. You do like the ending right @ktcjdrama? Or am i jumping the gun? Heh

 

I think it was a good end. And i cried a river in nearly all Hyuk scenes. I knew it was coming. But it hurts. Hurts even more when i understand what he was saying. It was really well done. From the constant bathing in sunlight shots, to the shaving scene. I must add the shaving scene was a good touch. It showed how different he is now(I'll gif the difference later). Previously he was scared of his mum, hand clenched and all, being submissive. In the last ep, he was content, it was maybe his first and unfortunately his last time defying his mother. I loved the difference. And SSR facial expressions were just...:heartbreak:.

 

Edit: to think of it. From the shaving scene alone. Maybe this really was the ending in mind. Eventhough it was subtle, i can see how different Hyuk is during that scene.

Yep he was just an after thought they handled every single thing around him extremely poorly.I never seen a lead done so poorly in a dram then becomes a complete after thought in the end its a complete joke. People might was well just watch  EP1 then stop thats his is complete story done and finish since they didnt bother  to actually doing anything with his plotlines

 

It makes me angry one of the most miserable person  whos suffer again an again though the drama like Sunny got nothing in the end, he could not even see his renege through like he wasted.

 

Such a waste of time to me.

 

 

would agree with you and @Ericaj -- wang shik being an after thought is what makes the ending really disappointing. forget sunny mourning but what about jedi master byun and dong shik? -- these were people who cared and loved him no? all we needed is for these two to stand together and mourn for wang shik even if the world had forgotten him. since there was 48 episodes of choi jin hyuk, the PD could have done a small montage of already televised scenes of wang shik. then if these two had bid a quiet goodbye, at least we would have had a kind of closure.

am really disappointed as I liked the writer's previous works I have seen and felt satisfied even with all the craziness. guess this will be a meh drama for me.. maybe when I have time, I will watch the ending just to see what happens to our baddies but as of now, feeling no motivation to check out the last episodes. :unsure:

Yes, I am happy with the ending. *high-five*

 

I personally think that the shaving scene has always been planned to sandwich the beginning and the end. That means, LH was to reach a point where he get himself ready to die and sacrifice his life for the last Empress. Same goes for GED's death by suicide. Her death has always been intended to be suicide. I don't believe after so many episodes, they get the actress to come back and shoot the part where she killed herself. I believe that part was shot very early on, at that same time, ep.15-16.

High five!

 

I too believe the suicide was preplanned. They shot multiple versions earlier and saved the footage. I was kinda dissapointed last week, but with this week's ep, i feel that it all make sense. But i find it jarring why they need to make Hyuk so cray last week. Heh

 

Anyways..i also think that they were pressed for time because of live filming. Which resulted in postponing episodes and also the extension. We can only speculate what happens behind the scenes. But from the BTS clips, the cast were having a blast filming (no pun intended with all the explosions lol). So I'm happy~ ehehe

I was bawling like a baby from when Lee Hyuk died. From that point on, I just kept crying and crying and crying. Every time they showed something from the past, I cried. It was insane.

 

I'm glad that they at least provided some type of closure on NWS. If we didn't get anything, I think it'd be pretty awkward. 

 

They definitely tried really hard to wash LH and I think it worked in some ways (at least for me). Yes, I have to applaud SSR for his acting. He really brought LH alive. I will admit that stabbing the pin into himself was totally extra... LH used death and persecuting his mother as a way of repent. In some ways, from what I see, Sunny never felt a romantic way toward NWS but it was always with Hyuk. Even at the end, she held his hand, told him not to die, and to earn her forgiveness. Whether they were just things to keep him alive, she wanted him alive.

 

Another person mentioned it but I got super nostalgic at the sight of the palace being turned into a museum, and the painting of Hyuk and Sunny in the middle of the wall along with their wedding clothes. Perhaps that was also a symbol? 

 

I feel that it wasn't a waste of time, but if it just ended with a shorter ending and not a rushed one, I think it would be nicer. And it doesn't make sense that MYR, who also the writer washed- along with LH didn't die (meanwhile LH had to die?) MYR went insane, had family, and Kang Joo-seung and meanwhile the protagonist's husband is dead WHILE trying to repent?

 

In the beginning, everything LH was doing (by his mother's orders) was to keep Sunny away because she was unnecessary in their goals. And at one point, he fell so deeply in love that he protects her from ED because he wants to. I think a lot wouldn't agree but LH didn't deserve to die...

 

I sincerely hope that SSR and JNR will reunite in a romcom drama (one that doesn't make me cry, maybe?) very soon. I can't wait to see their next collaboration!

 

EDIT: I also feel like when we're crying THIS hard, the cast are having a blast time laughing in the BTS...
