This drama moves faster than the wind and I can't wait till next week! There's so many subplots going on right now. I wonder what that nanny is up to and why did the late empress pass away that makes the King so mad thinking of her. And how will CJH and JNR get together in the palace, what about the younger brother of the king? Will the grandma pass away??? What is going to happen!! ahhhhhh

How amazing was the last two episodes?

 

I had no intention of making an MV for this drama but couldn't resist. I loved Gaho's song the first time I heard it and was surprised they released it early.

Raise your hand if you got Naruto vibes from the animation scenes :phew:

:o indeed.... I am going to say that she is his daughter and that's why he left his position in the palace. 

The mystery is getting more intricate... love it!

Btw, am I the only one who is reminded of King Elvis by that white golden long robe of LH? :lol:

The mentor had a weird expression when WB mentioned the Emperor. The emperor said WB's fighting style is very familiar.

 

Does anyone find it strange when they switch back & forth from 'old set' to modern? When they whip out a mobile phone or I see the ear piece the guards use, I feel I went down the rabbit hole to another dimension!

I just started watching this and completed the first 2 episodes. Has anyone yet raised why the Emperor had a sudden change of heart towards Min Yura, from wanting her dead to now wanting to marry her? All because she wanted to take the fall for him on the accident? Doesn't seem to make sense to me. If I were the Emperor, wouldn't that just be the perfect end to all his troubles if she had actually died?

 yeap, it makes more sense and cleaner to kill Yu Ra. I think he kept kept her alive to use her against his mother. I am debating on LH/the emperor's character. Sometimes he shows himself as a weak man, immature and afraid to take responsibility for his action/crime. His mother says he easily trusts ppl and has a soft heart But then other times, he seems to be a cunning, wicked psycho who us not right in the head and always manipulates ppl around him

 

 

Im actually wondering if he even really has ‘fallen’ for YR. I say this because when we find out it was LH that had been behind the crane incident, he tells his guy not to tell YR. is this maybe because he doesn’t want her to know he’s capable of hurting whoever, maybe even her, to do what he wants? Is it maybe he’s using her in his revenge scheme against his mother? He holds a grudge against her to this day cause he thinks the mom is responsible for his first wife’s death?

After the big revelation I'm wondering how Sunni decides to act? I was sure she  wouldn't let LH near her or play a happy couple card. But judging from the preview it looks just like that. Like she still can't let go of her infatuation with the Emperor and continues to fight for *their love*.  I mean I can understand that it's imposible to just shut down these feelings she had for LH for so long, but I'm surprised she still stubbornly has some faith in her husband when he lies her in the face and making it seem like she is the one at fault. I hope there is the catch. Sunni is smart and won't be easily fooled now even if deep down she wants to. She won't be able to look at LH the same way she did before even if she tries to deny the obvious. She know realized she doesn't know the man she calls her husband. So will she gives him one more chance? Or will she opts to wait and see, being on guard now and trying to test LH?

I really don't want to see the *it's all her fault, she seduced him first* scenario. I know Sunni can do better than that and she is surely not one of those who'd let to step on her like that. This girl has dignity and backbone so I do hope the preview is misleading...

Otherwise it looks like one last wake up call is needed and that is gonna be Grandma's death.

Oh yeah and for those here that are looking for a show similiar to Last Empress, if it hasn’t been suggested then I recommend the show, Money Flower. For some reason I sometimes think of it as I watch this show.

Hello. I just started watching this drama and marathon till the latest episode. I think Jung Soon is not dead yet. I got the feeling that the Ahjusshi that help Wang Shik is the Jung Soon that went missing. When WooBin and Lee Hyuk fight on the sword scene, he said the fighting style seem familiar and he ask where did Woo Bin learned it. So Lee Hyuk recognize the fighting style. It's possible that the Ahjusshi saving Woo Bin is Jung Soon. 

 

Throughout the show I was hoping Sunny and Lee Hyuk will be together. But now episode 12 already still no progression between their love line. So I guess there will be no romance between this two? Feel sad that they won't cause i was hoping it will happen. I guess Sunny will be with Woo Bin????

Yoon So Yi Gets On Her Knees To Plead With Jang Nara In “The Last Empress”

Yoon So Yi Gets On Her Knees To Plead With Jang Nara In âThe Last Empressâ

 

Things are getting even more complicated and tense for the characters of SBS’s drama “The Last Empress.”

SBS’s Wednesday-Thursday drama “The Last Empress” is set in an alternate universe where Korea has a constitutional monarchy. The drama has been enjoying a rise in viewership ratings, recording its personal best with its latest episode and scoring double-digit ratings.

Spoiler

The latest episode showed Empress Oh Sunny (Jang Nara) seeing Emperor Lee Hyuk (Shin Sung Rok) and Min Yu Ra (Lee Elijah) canoodling aboard a cruise ship with her own eyes. She spilled tears of betrayal, signaling the bleak future that is set to fall upon Oh Sunny.

 

The episode also showed Oh Sunny beginning to feel suspicious of Seo Kang Hee (Yoon So Yi), the nanny of Princess Ari (Oh Ah Rin). Oh Sunny had told off Princess Ari for treating her nanny poorly, but Seo Kang Hee directed her anger at Oh Sunny. When Princess So Jin (Lee Hee Jin) got drunk and started mistreating her daughter Princess Ari, Seo Kang Hee spoke up against her and in a fit of rage, Princess So Jin revealed that Princess Ari’s birth mother was actually Seo Kang Hee.

 

The new stills show Seo Kang Hee on her knees handing documents to Oh Sunny, who looks a little shellshocked. The situation is completely different from before as Oh Sunny sits with a ferocious glint in her eye while Seo Kang Hee has her head down and is stating her case with desperation in her voice. It will be interesting to see what has led the two to this point and what kind of conversation they share.

 

The production staff stated, “In the last episode, the truth behind Princess Ari and Seo Kang Hee was revealed, opening the doors of more conflict to come. Please keep watching to see how Empress Oh Sunny begins to fight through the hardships that keep coming her way, and what result their conversation will bring.”

Byeon teacher   Kim Myeong Su (60s) Head of the imperial anti-faction
Byeon Bag Ho   A benefactor who saved WS’s life.
He is a former head of the presidential guard, now living in the countryside in seclusion.
Seven years ago, he gave up and left as the guard leader, and after that he seems to cut off from the outside world,
but, in fact, he is a head of the eagle, which is the imperial anti-faction.
After he rescues WS, he helps WS to revenge and works together to topple the imperial family

@Lmangla

Here is the character description of jedi master Byeon.  Maybe he has to relate to the imperil family in some way. Otherwise how he can safely hide in the countryside?  He is 60. It means he can be the father of the first empress?
So there is this mystery connection between the first empress and the jedi master. Another mystery crumb dropped by the writer   haha  I’m still so amazed that someone spotted the name on the urn.  Or just luck  

 

@Lmangla said    option D: sunny! -- the fangs have arrived.

option D Sunny ;

I want to pick a granny dowager since LH might have a hard time overriding her decision but it would be more fun if it’s Sunny who put MYR in the dungeon. ^_^   The writer has proven she could come out with an unexpected plot line so why not make Sunny suddenly discover a hidden power in her sapphire necklace  to put MYR in the dungeon. haha    Sorry I don’t know actually what the hidden power is but I trust the writer’s fertile imagination to make it believable.  hahha 

 

Wow who would expect the mustache guy got knocked out this early. Too bad it wasn’t Sunny.:(  So here is the real Rocky for substitution.  hahaha  :wacko::lol:

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

 

 

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...


Thank you for explaining about anime.  At first I wasn’t quite sure why they put in those anime sequences.   Then I thought about what you said about their inner feelings.  Yes this anime showed their inner rage and pain vividly.  Yet we know how these two are going to deal with them.  LH is consumed by them and eventually will lose himself.  For WB, though he is still in a rage and pain but  this pain makes him understand how Sunny felt and to reach out to her with compassion(/’kindness’ )

At this point I feel like when LH starts to fall for Sunny it’s when she’s already completely over him or in love with WB so she won’t be wavered by his interest in her. And I feel like we will see his true feelings for her when he is about to lose her. Like either she asks for a divorce, starts acting distant, or seems like she’s into another man (without knowing yet it’s WB she’s actually falling for). I do feel like there is potential for LH to fall for a Sunny, just because even YR seemed to be jealous and insecure about them when she broke the picture. And gave Sunny the bad advice (which honestly I think worked against YR. yes he freaked out and everything, but he’s always been reminded of his first wife since their wedding day when he saw her in Sunny. Maybe this will be where his ‘obsession or affection’ roots for Sunny, because she reminds him of his ex).

Okay someone found more interesting info.   The screen of the live news shows the event takes place 1/17/2019(Tr)  If there is no cancellation, EP13 will be on that week. That’s a half way of 24 eps drama when they discover the mummy.  interesting how the writer timed for the discovery.

the way LH jumped into the water by splashing down with his stomach   haha  I don’t know about swimming so I can’t tell whether it’s incorrect or not but it looks funny.  Maybe SRR did it like that on purpose??

CJH did this car chasing scene by himself without using a stunt man.  I don’t know if it’s a smart thing for CJH to do.   But then in his previous drama he had to produce 21 kiss scenes, nearly one in every ep (so he got the title of a kiss master haha)   Maybe it was too much for him so now he wants to do something different?? haha

I didn't notice too... but now that you mentioned it, yes CJH had a better entry into the water.... but SSR propelled himself further. 

Ooo I can't wait for Wednesday night to come. I think I'm having withdrawal already. Not very productive these days, keep checking for updates for TLE....

got to rewatch ep 5 and 6 over the weekend and i noticed some things that i have completely missed the first time watching

then again i am the type of those that skip watching and the fast forward type

hahaha

 

so empress dowager already warned sunny before about myr most probably because she thinks sunny is so ignorant and blind that she fail to see things happening around her

but i noticed that sunny is not as clueless as she was pictured in the beginning of this drama

she might be innocent and naive type of a gal

but she is also smart and able to put two and two together and figuring things out on her own as well

she also not the type to sit back and watch everything unfolds around her

she still makes effort and work toward finding out things and figuring things out

so the fact that she quickly able to figures that myr was sabotaging her relationship with her hubby was interesting

and the fact that she aptly try to tackle it up front is also showing her bravery

she might be slow than us all, then again we are watching this in all perspectives while she has her own only

and in the next ep she might try to still hold on to the hope that she might make it work with the emperor

but who can blame her?

they are married and just until a while ago, she seriously thought that they are madly in love with one another

it will take time just a lil longer for her to come to term with herself

but when that happen, she will have her resolution and sticks to it

 

and i am guessing only then lee hyuk finds her amazing and started to fell for her along with his possessive demeanor which can't stand seeing someone who was used to be idolising and worshiping him

to be suddenly indifferent to him and treating him with alofment and most probably avoiding him as well

or she could go the other way around and showing her defiance and stubbornness and constantly being in his face going against him, that making her more interesting and more alluring than the previously clueless oh sunny

either way would be interesting

 

hahaha

 

the last scene of ep 6 is amazing

i am happy that this is not a daily drama

at least we have to wait only until ep 6 before heroin finds out almost everything and it took the hero lot less time to got the revelation

^_^

 

btw i am getting fed up with myr pitiful acting, i mean her acting like as a damsel in distress and acting innocent when things happen

that is just so annoying, but it sure makes the emperor happy, him being the hero time after time, he must be gloating and feeling like a savior

meh

hahaha

now i am more curious about his relationship with the late empress for now

it seems that he truly lover her and yet he hated everything about her now

so it is possible that she betrayed him before her death

might have an affair with that guy who died also

or maybe she didnt even loves him in truth and just using him acting all innocent and naive while carrying hidden agenda

ah so many maybe for this one...

i wonder which one will be used by the writer

^__^
