Hahahaha..... It seems that all are here (except me) b'cause of Choi Jin Hyuk!! Yeah, it's good that at least he can get some attention here! And if he wasn't got casted, then no one will watch this!! :sweat_smile:

Everyone here says that "I am here for Choi Jin Hyuk!!" :D So it clearly indicates that the series is itself a trash without him & all are forcing themselves to watch this!!! :sweatingbullets: Why did Jang Na Ra pick this up..??!! I am so sad for her! :wub:

 

 

I was interested in this drama because of Jang Nara in the first place. I’m her fan (isn’t it obvious, she’s on my thumbnail) :lol: And I like this drama and I’m glad she did it. I won’t rely on pure k-netz comments because a lot of the viewers are probably ahjummas who don’t care about the cast but plainly enjoy the makjang-ness of this drama.

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.

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:

Sooo happy that the palace gangster had been killed. Yeay!

kekekek... am so loving that still @tianaa ! wish I could put it as my DP but it says image is not accepted. :(

 

thanks @ktcjdrama; here, another post of mine @at2005 which gives you little more why I enjoy makjang.

Anyway, for those who are enjoying this show, what are you guys so addicted to..?! I am speechless! :crazy:

kekekek... the crazyness of makjang is that it works because the emotions are real even if the scenarios are over the top. so what do I mean by that? well, if you have ever been back stabbed and felt the need for justice, you can feel wang shik's pain that he lost his mom in such a cruel way. have you ever made a fool of yourself over a crush where the person didn't know you exist or even care? then you can feel sunny's humiliation and pain... makjang doesn't mince from real life that good people get taken for a ride and one needs to be shrewd. a fun aspect of makjang is that you have no idea what twist will pop up that is going to make you laugh.

 

if you are a first time viewer to makjang, it can be very confusing and feel all over the place. however, makjang viewers generally have seen it all attitude and have experienced life. so if you watch makjang with your mom like @Matilda_Anne, you will get lots of hilarious comments as well as random real life anecdotes of how someone got cheated, how this happened in this family etc. makjang is basically about having a laugh without it being too serious but at the same time, having some real emotions that ground the story. it is great to not think and just watch a drama sometimes. a good comparison is one that naver commentator made -- it is lot like instant noodles. no one is looking for gourmet or healthy food when you are craving instant noodles.

 

and I get if you are not enjoying the drama as there are lots of dramas that people love that I don't even bother to see or drop as I am bored. we all have different tastes. however, will say this - it takes skill to shine in makjang, to make the outlandish believable and all the actors here are certainly doing that. :)

Hahahaha @Lmangla - You may be right about makjang!! But the problem is that I am not taking this too seriously as you guys do, b'cause this is only a fiction in the writer's mind!!! Now that the majority of the viewers are enjoying this ride, don't mind my opinion!!! :wub:

 

SO ENJOY, GUYS!!! AND HAVE A NICE DAY/WEEKEND!!!

@Lmangla

 

true! i grew up watching a lot of telenovelas and soap operas with my mom.. i really disliked them but i like watching tv with my mom coz she will make funny comments and we would laugh together.. it was really a good memory now that im all grown up.. even now she will wait for me to come home every weekend so she can watch dramas with me (she even made me promise not to watch the new ep of the last empress without her hahaha sorry mom i lie to you).. 

 

@gm4queen it’s alright not to like this drama.. it really is not for everyone.. as for jang nara, i cant say why she choose to do this project.. maybe she wants to challenge herself. afterall, we still dont know what her character will turn into after this.. :rolleyes:

:D Because I have nothing better to do, I went to watch the first episode when the body was found. I discovered that the English subs only translate the things that the reporters said, but not the words on the news screen. So here they are, translated from the Chinese subs:

 

- After receiving an anonymous tip, a pregnant dry corpse in Imperial Palace was discovered

- DNA test conducted to find the identity revealed that it is a female in her 20s-30s

- DNA test is being conducted to find the identity of dry corpse in Ehwa Garden

- The dry corpse and item found are believed to be related to the Imperial family

- Dry corpse discovered in Ehwa Garden is speculated to be pregnant with twins at time of death.

- The Prosecutor Office is going to break the principle/rule of no searching of Imperial Palace to conduct investigation

 

And I checked the stages of decomposition, a dead body dries up between 50-365 days, depending on how much the body of the species is covered with hair.

Choi Jin Hyuk is on his way for a fanmeeting in Osaka. But here is an excerpt with English subs of his interview with SBS catch

And for anyone who have seen Go Back Couple, Jang Ki Young sent a coffee truck to Jang Nara on the set of The Last Empress. I just find it sweet of him :wub:

CHOI JIN HYUUUUUKKK is soooo perfect!!! He really stands out in this drama. His expressions actually move people to feel the same anger and sadness he is feeling. Just daebak! The reason I am more excited for him than say Jang Na Ra is because Nara is ALWAYS perfect- she always slays with her performance and chemistry with the male lead but I feel for Choi Jin Hyuk more than I have felt for his characters in his other dramas. And I feel this improvement itself deserves a huge round of applause!!

 

Seriously can't wait for next week when our Nara finally shows her stronger side and teams up with our bodygaurd to take down the royals plus Yura...

You are one true detective :-) 

With the crazy mind of mine, I say we make it the first wife. She didnt really die, someone faked her death, locked her up somewhere down in a dungeon. Her pregnancy could be a result of an unwillingness act. Hmmm...

 

CJH and JNR have known each other that long and that close and still havent hooked up?

oohh...good thought..but the first wife, I believe was cremated and her ashes are supposed to be in an urn that lee hyuk almost threw in anger then Woobin prevented him from doing so by being his punching bag. Unless the empress dowager placed someone else on that urn??? But it seems, something happened with a motorcycle or car accident before which is why the emperor is prohibited to ride a motorcycle. Is this connected with his first wife's death? Did she die because of him? That even though he loves her so much, he can't forgive himself to be the cause of her death?

CJH and JNR are quite close because of Park Kyung Lim. And her mom recognized him on TV as the kid who played Go stop at their house :lol: Their relationship is like noona-dongsaeng all the time. But who knows..Nara said she never fell in love in real life with any of her co-stars.

Oh Sunny's tears are so powerful to cut her bracelet off her arm. Can she just cry over her husband and his mistress? Maybe her tears can cut both of them too :lol:

after watching the latest ep, i finally understood why it was necessary for emperor and sunny to sleep together.. after that night, sunny was under the impression that her husband is maybe in love with her. but then he hurt her by throwing and smashing things to her face. then, came the ultimate betrayal when she saw him kissing yura.. all these build up plots are actually preparing sunny to get her revenge.. 

 

i saw in the nxt ep preview that yura is locked in dungeon-lookalike prison.. maybe sunny ordered it?

 

cant wait for sunny to get even with the emperor and yura!  as the saying goes, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned!

When  CWB was being chased by Lee Hyuk's men with Ma's body in the car, his face was definitely exposed. So how come they didn't seem to know he was driving the Ma guy's car? Also, I think the man who saved Na Wang Sik could have trained Lee Hyuk in martial arts as Lee Hyuk said CWB's fighting style is familiar.

kekeke.... I can't believe we actually won @celebrianna the poll. hahahhaha... thought some of the other options were sure to win. yay! :D

 

44781518_474893523020370_371370032811547

 

thanks for playing along everyone! ^_^

 

the poll:

let's have a poll "who will find out first about rocky bear's secret identity?"

option 1: so, we love rocky bear but let's face it, he is not exactly bright is he? so he will reveal himself to yura because he believes she loves him. idiot! hahahaha....  --  @Lmangla   @zba72   @chubby^green^   @celebrianna @ktcjdrama

option 2: yura may have ignored rocky bear but because he followed her like a stalker in the old days, she will find him familiar and start to guess rocky bear used to be chubby bear.  -- @O  @stella77

option 3: sunny may be ditzy because of her fan girling but when she's not fan girling, she does have some brain cells. so she will find out the owner of the chain and locket is rocky bear and he used to be chubby bear...  --  @tianaa  @Carmarie  @guinearoyal @philosophie @sonequeen01 @booha   @zba72 , gm4queen, @alekaonu

option 4: grandmother and jedi master have some connection and so grandmother will find out about rocky bear... @triplem

option 5: emperor villian, shall we call him penguin, will find out rocky bear is still alive and start to suspect when he wonders why rocky bear has something against yellow pick up trucks...

option 6: rocky bear is like us and finds it hard to keep diet. poor fella. so yura recognizes him as he becomes chubby bear. so sad. -- @ChewyChocolate   @Matilda_Anne

option 7: moustache man sniffs around the palace and wonders why rocky bear is so fit. and then he finds out rocky bear climbed the mountain to become fit.... @celebrianna   @Lmangla

@Lmangla

I am glad I was wrong and it was unexpected. The writing is good! They are asking us to suspend belief and reality but don’t assume that we viewers are stupid! I love at how fast the plot is going forward - straight into all kinds of fun.

 

You should continue the poll after the episodes each week! Like this week: we can ask who throws Yura in jail!
