after the emperor had sex with yura, he slept with sunny. wow his stamina must be really strong.. maybe he drinks ginseng tea that day lol.. jokes aside, i read the plot synopsis by dramawiki and it says,

 

"Due to death of Emperor Lee Hyuk’s grandmother, Oh Ssu-Ni breaks down the royal family with the help of Na Wang-Sik and finds true love"...

 

guess there will be romance between hot hunk and sunny after all..oh grandmama will die soon. 

Haaaa??? The grandma's dead?? She's the only one who likes & supports the empress... So the latter will be left alone and then will find an ally in CWB?

Grandma is still alive. Don't worry :D but I don't know how and when she's gonna die. 

They always make the last scene epic and it is epic tonight. I love that scene.

Spoiler

Oh Sunny now have seen with her own eyes the infidelity of min yura and lee hyuk. She is deeply hurt and Woo bin is with her who is also hurting seeing yura and lee hyuk kiss. Woo bin knows how much it hurts for Sunny and he covers her eyes to stop her from seeing them kiss and possibly stop her hurt.

The next episode looks like it's building up more. 

 

But at least, there is one evil person out and it's Ma Pil Joo. 

And they tried to kill "Na Wang Shik" who they don't know has seven lives. :lol:

TLE & Encounter are really fighting it off in ratings. Is anybody here watching Encounter?

 

 

me! park bo gum and song hye kyo are both gorgeous people and such good actors. the cinematography is pretty too, however, the OTP are lacking chemistry for me.. i just dont see them as lovers..i dunno why.. maybe the age gap thingy isnt my thing.. besides, the plot is quite slow and bland. i dropped it after 2 ep.. 

 

omo am i a newly converted makjang lover? am i slowly turning into my mother? :joy:

Just happened to watch tonight's eps just for Jang Na Ra even though I dropped the series so earlier...

 

At the end of the 12th ep when Oh Sunny witnessed the intimacy of Lee Hyuk & Min Yu Ra, tears feel down on Oh Sunny's hand & her couple bracelet broke down in to pieces!!! :cold_sweat: So sad!!! :( But love the cinematography!!!

 

So now that the real hunt begins!!! And I think I should come back & watch this just for Jang Na Ra!!!! :wub: To be honest, I am not interested in the plot!!! I only watch Jang Na Ra's parts! So if I am missing something, I hope you guys will guide me on the way!! :wub:

hahahaha.... take it from me, once you fall in love with makjang, you will always think it is amazing. it is like one of the comments on naver -- it a lot like instant noodles and cannot be compared with healthy food :sweatingbullets:

 

so caught up on ep 5 and it was fantastic. while the anime sequence made me giggle as we are not used to seeing it in drama, it was well done and apt in terms of fighting and lighting. so long time ago, one of my favourite anime was kenshin and penguin emperor reminds me of the villain shishio. he also happened to have a lady sidekick named yumi makato -- think of an anime version of penguin and yura plotting away...

Spoiler

99e8e0db7cb0c126c90386a6d9aa1154_480.jpg

 

now in terms of colours and expressions, something that they often showed in anime fight sequences is how the true self comes out. so we see almost a demonic version of penguin with his expressions, tongue slithering and blue background whereas, we see wang shik is still himself but in a red background.... with anime fight sequences, red background is all emotion and shows a person isn't quite in control and there is a lot of rage and inner turmoil whereas a blue one is almost more scarier because there is coldness and possibly dark magic.

 

so if we remove the comedy feel of all of a sudden seeing anime in a drama, there is almost an epic fantasy tale being told and the anime sequence tells you the inner world of these two men. it is telling us that the emperor is not all quite there and he is darker than the charming self we see outside while wang shik is in pain but that innocence/kindness is still there...

Maybe if it's Jang Nara and Park Bo Gum, it would be better even with the age gap (nothing against Song Hye Kyo). Jang Nara can have great chemistry with anyone, perhaps she can do it even with a pole :lol: I actually shipped her even with Bo gum in Hello Monster and also with Lee Jong suk even if she was his teacher in School 2013. But with the previous wedding rumor between her and Bo gum, I doubt that they'll work anytime soon :(

Anyway, it's not bad to be like your mom :D I remember reading a comment before that makjang dramas especially Kim Soon-ok's are very addicting like crack. I haven't done crack but yeah, we're getting a dose of this addiction :lol: I actually would be happier if this was a daily drama like what she usually does because waiting another week is like forever.

does anyone wonder who the father of dong shik will turn out to be?

Spoiler

given this is makjang, I won't be surprised if there is some plot twist and it turns out to be the emperor's kid! hahahahah.... :lol:.... or that she was a surrogate for the previous empress but with the empress death, had to come back home all broken and decides to go back to palace.... ^_^

True, it doesn’t feel weird to see her with PBG in Hello Monster. Would love to see them together again in a different drama.

 

Btw anyone know what Woo Bin said at the end of ep 13/14 preview?

Just a couple of nagging questions before I watch tonight's episodes.

 

Not only am I wondering who Dong Shik's father is, but why would MYR, who was already an orphan come back, a single mother to be and then when she had the baby was so adamant about not keeping it. She didn't even want to look at her child or take care of him. Was she raped? Is the father someone in a HIGH position? I just have this feeling that at some point, she is going to use that little boy to get what she wants.

 

Also, how is LH able to be involved with MYR and not Sunny? Every single time he looks at Sunny, he gets some sort of flashback of his first wife, but he's not like that with MYR at all. Is it because Sunny is the Empress?

 

What happened to his father? The Queen Dowager does not look that old, so I am curious what happened to her husband. I sense some foul play.

 

Too many things happened 7 years ago. The Queen Dowager's guard came up missing. MYR came back to WS and and his mom suddenly with child. The first empress ended up dead. I feel like ALL of this is connected.

I can't wait for subs so watched raw already, yeah this drama is addicting....

Yes! Ma is out of the picture... Urgh, I can't stand him since Fox Bride Star, so I am glad I do not have to see him again. And thank you for telling WS the truth about his mother's death.

 

I cheered when Sunny used her position to order NWS to let her know where LH is. Her fangs are growing.... yay!! And from the preview, she's playing her cards well to keep up the happily married pretense.

 

CJH is just :wub:  I love smiley GMS in Devilish Joy, but I also love angsty NWS here....

omo the emperor and sunny had sex!.. 

Really... that is sad and stupid. I don´t see how people even care for romance anymore when they are doing this. trowing scenes like that without building the romance at least. I am out of here.  so for those that like this show enjoy

@sal2  I am sorry that you do not like the show and I hope you find a drama that you will enjoy watching.  

I am not sure I understand what you are speaking of.  Are you upset about the Emperor and YR or are you upset about the Emperor and Sunny (his legal wife) having sex?  It is nice to build a relationship first; however, in many cultures, arranged marriages are the norm.  Therefore, there is no romance building before marriage and they have sex first once they exchange vows, they learn each once they marry.    If I used many K-dramas as a guide,  I would say poor people marry for romance, rich people marry for finance.

 

The show isn't so much about who is zooming who, but as it proceeds it will be about Sunny (the empress) and CWB (her body guard) solving a mystery and bringing down the monarchy.  People aren't perfect in real life and have sex for many reasons other than romance or before they build a relationship. 

 

Again, I sincerely hope you find a drama that will make you happy.

I really don't know if they're planning to have LH in a redemption arc...cause at this point I'm just done with him! Not even pitying him for his past and first love/wife excuse!

 

Now he's just evil. Manipulative and evil. Like how do you plot to kill your wife on your wedding day??! If he actually does end up 'falling' for her :crazy: I hope Sunny kicks him to the curb!

 

And do we need a bed scene or make out session in EVERY episode?? Is it really necessary...? I get they're having a PASSIONATE affair but do we need to see it so many times??

 

Don't get me wrong guys - I love the show and I can't wait for the romance between WS and OS but dang. LH and YR need to CHILL <_< And his mum (I'm not going to go there, she's a whole other set of problems) but you guys get the gist.

I feel you but let me see if I could come up with a logical valid reason for them beside the fact of securing rating :-p

I personally dont think LH loves YR but just manipulates her and uses her as a weapon to fight his mother. Unlike Sunny where he could shower her with beautiful words and she would believe him whole heartedly, YR is a different level. He has to use different tactic and way to secure her "loyalty" and both of them as well as us know that raw sexual instinct is the way to go ehhehe

 

Different ppl express love and accept love differently. To SN the loving words, the gentle caring..perhaps for YR, the physical touching and desire

I see my comment was short and not very good explained. Yes I was reacting to Emperor and Sunny bed scene. I guess what made me put off about the scene is that he have been intimate with YR for every episode before that. I therefor did not feel good about It because sunny not knowing what kind of person he is and what she have signed up for. It is more then the act itself, but everything around this marriage that is to me messed up and I just feel bad for our girl getting tangled up in this sh...t.  To me even if you are naive person those not give people the right to play with you and pretend... I just feel so bad for the girl to enjoy this... I want to ship her far away from this people. But seems like she is slowly getting her head in the game at least :) And hope that CWB and her can build a relationship that is mutual based, different from her and the emperor. 

 

I guess knowing who the PD and writer is, I knew it would be a crazy feast with adult scene and allot of mad people. I can understand why some feel it is addictive :) I like Boyfriend that is more quite and slower witch give you time to take in scenes and think about it. but taste is different so not gonna say anything about what people should like :)
