Forget it if the Kakao Dog [t/n: Shin Sung Rok's lookalike] falls for Oh Ssu Ni in the future... Everyone should get lost and please let only Oh Ssu Ni be happy. If the two suddenly get together, I'll be annoyed. 
 

 

Yesterday, I finally got what sweet potatoes are. Now, I finally understood who they were referring to as Kakao Dog :D These k-netz really are something.

6. [+195,-1]
If he suddenly falls for Jang Na Ra, it wouldn't make sense.. 

 


4. [+331,-16]
Watching today's episode, I can see why the King falls for Ssu Ni now. Ssu Ni turns into a dark character and talks to him in an aggressive manner, this surprises the King. In the future, he might say something like, "You are the only woman who treats me that way, Oh Ssu Ni!" ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I think he will turn out this way. 


 

 

I agree with some of these netzens comments about how the Emperor is supposed to fall for Sunny. But after today's episode, after he obviously tried to kill her... now twice!...he really has to be pychotic. 

But it would make sense, Hyuk likes challenges, and it could be the Sunny's perseverance and constant refusal to back down against him...I can see him eventually coming to like her. He is that twisted.

As for WS, I can see him coming to respect Sunny more as he watches her fight against them openly and refuses to be crushed. Does make a lot more work for him as I see him trying to protect her more secretly. 

 

However, as awful as it is to be nearly killed by your own husband, I am glad that she has woken up and is now completely aware of the situation. But it also guarantees that Sunny will NOT be going back to Hyuk. In fact I think she stated clearly that the only reason for going back and staying in the palace is to expose what had been done to not only herself, but the former Empress as well. I think that is rather noble of Sunny to include her and says that despite how angry and revengeful she is right now, she still looks out for others. I am sure that the former Empress's father will be thankful for her righting the wrongs against his child.

Wow, what a thrilling episodes.. I love it when Sunny stand up right and face to face against the emperor.. She totally lost respect to the emperor as she called him with the name, Lee Hyuk, but not the title.. As far i know, in korean during the monarchy time, the korean people didn't allow to even say the emperor name (even a character of the name) in their daily conversation, thats why their name is short and sometime, they even hide their true name.. But seing Sunny said his name right in front his face, is satisfying for me.. Cant wait what more Sunny will reveal and show to public. I'm putting my trust in Sunny's word, she will strip down the emperor and she will go out of the palace head high. 

 

Somehow, i got the feeling, its not gonna be happy ending.

Sunny isn't well trained yet. When the rolling door was coming down, she should've just slided herself over under it :lol:

 

I like Sunny's phone case... look at the borders...

vmNWEtx.png

 

I lost count on how many times things flew off a table in this episode... :lol: and also how many times Sunny shoved LH off when he manhandled her. Sunny is one smart person. She took in information very fast and quickly countered back everyone with it. I love it when she talked back to MYR after she corrected her for talking impolitely to the Emperor. She just grabbed her by the hair and reprimanded her also that she is still the Empress so watch how you talk to me! And then shoved her to the ground. I was cheering for her so, yay!! but immediately after that, I cried for her also when she went to Grandmama and collapsed into her hug.

 

So who killed Grandmama? She announced to everyone (Dowager, LH and MYR) that she is going to call for a meeting with the Internal Affairs of the palace the next day. All these three people won't want that to take place, thus having to kill her. My bet is on the Dowager. I'd like to think it wasn't LH, but him going to her room at dawn to discover Sunny, was rather confusing too. Maybe he just wanted to persuade Grandmama to change her mind about the meeting. Or maybe he did want to check whether she died or not? :huh: I also don't think it is MYR because I doubt she is capable of such thing as murdering the Grand Empress Dowager. But then the hairpin kinda gave a clue in the direction that her death is related to MYR... I'm so confused. No one definitely was counting on Sunny to be there and be the first person to discover her death.

 

Last night was certainly the best episode so far! Once again I can't wait for next week to come. But I'll be traveling on Wednesday evening :tears: Can't live stream nor recaps. Will join you guys on Thursday...

How did she not recognize YR in person if she already saw that picture? And where on earth did she put the locket? Let's hope that YR doesn't get her hands on it.

She only saw it once, and it is a very small picture... She won't remember it for now, but I'm sure that locket will come into play to connect WS with YR.

True, but she thought that what she and LH had was true love from thinking that she knew about him from when she was his fan apparently, and that was why she agreed to marry him. So now that the "true love" between them has been shown as lies, not sure that she's still in the mood to go looking for true love. I think she has to resolve her feelings of betrayal by LH before she'll be ready to cultivate romantic feelings. Again, that's just my opinion, and I may be trying to be realistic in my assessment of a fictional character's emotional state. :)

 

 

Okay, ultimate happy ending scenario. The empire falls with LH and YR both in jail for their crimes. WS and SN realize that they love and trust each other after all, and have AR and DS live with them since neither WS nor SN are the types of people to abandon helpless youngsters.  Plus WS loves DS who loves and looks up to WS and SN will come to love him, too, and SN feels affection for AR who looks up to SN as well which is a good basis for them to come to love each other.

Cant be searching for something if you think you already have it :kiss_wink:

I, too, suspect the empress dowager killed grandma. It seems she is responsible too with the murder of the first empress. Or Lee hyuk is just that psycho that he can just kill his loved ones once he snaps. 

Haha I was also thinking about that while watching the drama...how every character loves to shove things off the table when they're angry. And I love how Oh Sunny counterattacks anyone on her way. When she had that confrontation with Lee hyuk, min yura, and woobin, she just slapped woobin, hit Lee hyuk, and pulled yura's hair like easy peasy. I like that there is a stair where Jang Nara can stand so she can be eye to eye with her tall co-stars while making those moves.

My most favorite scene last night was when Sunny grabbed YR's hair and shoved LH. So satisfying to watch.

 

FInally understood now thar WS is trying to get Sunny out of the palace to keep her safe. He didn't anticipate her coming back to fight the imperial family. I think they will team-up in the near future.

 

Prince Yoon seems to be close with GED so with news of her death, I would love to see him come back and help Sunny. This is one twisted royal family. It needs to go down.

I'm now more worried about the nanny.. She got the upper hand.. If the imperial family failed, she still got the prime minister.. She well full covered compared to MYR. 

 

I cant stop think the emperor is schizophrenic man.. He is in distress since child. He pressured to be the best in every aspect but beaten by his brother, Yoon who is carefree and brilliant. LH is the original crown prince, but the late emperor saw something in LH that he change the crown prince title to Yoon instead. I totally can see why, Yoon is compose, brilliant, and wise. Yoon know the empress dowager  involve in the late empress death. He even giving hint to his mother in the hotel and threatened the emperor. he is in dilemma, he love his family but hate the corruption in the the family. Instead of standing tall , he is running away. He dont have enough evidence but sure he know alot. I think he will help Sunny. 

 

The man who WB chase, i think its him. Its grandmother empress dowager chamber. He missed his grandmother and want to see her.

 

How grandmother killed is still in mystery.. It can be by the hair pin/ food. The food is prepaired by Sunny. Sunny will be accused as the killer either way. 

The bluish discolouration is the livor mortis. Means grandmother died in about 1-2 hours or more.

ooh, congrats to . @booha  @stella77  @Matilda_Anne  @alekaonu  @nakatsubebe @at2005 @ChewyChocolate

for correctly guessing that sunny put yura in jail.. however, none of us would have predicted rocky bear's back stab. my, was it good! he really has super fangs!!!

 

and can we expect a romance between hello and lee yoon as well? @booha ~ any idea why we have two different english titles for this drama "last empress" "empress dignity"? -- am wondering if these titles are clues to how the story will play out...

 

haha sadly Sunny’s  power didn’t last long.  But at least she demonstrated that she knew how to use her power properly.  
Well The literal title is ‘Empress’s Dignity’ but SBS named it in English ‘The Last Empress’.    Maybe two different names are for different viewers, Korean and overseas ones. I translated TLE into Korean.   It didn’t sound that attractive in Korean. 

Besides TLE makes it clearer what the drama is about, heroine who topples the corrupt empire.  In the drama, the word ‘Dignity’ is used in context of how one conducts one’s self.  But in the Korean title, Dignity can be like acting decently/ morality/honorable for the interest of the public especially by people who are in higher positions.   Sunny was a commoner but now she is an empress so  she will have to learn something about Dignity in a different way?

Poor sunny; her father is a gambler and not of much help. Sister is too busy on finding vincent lee and now she can only cry in front of GED and soon she will be murdered too. I guess after her murder; the pet cat will turn into a full-fledged tigress.

 

haha  yes I want to see her pet cat as a full-fledged tigress  rowrowww hehe

Thank you for the recaps   So fun to read all those details. Some details are overlapped but others are not. Still enjoyed reading them because in different hands those details gave out different feelings.  :relaxed:

Hmmm ... So, they are going to frame Suni for Granny's death? <_<

 

As for who killed the previous queen, it's interesting that Ari's nanny is in cohoots to change the succession law, which would allow Ari to ascend the throne.-_-

 

Since this drama is already so crazy, I'm hoping that we get a back story on Suni, where she is the leader of her high school gang.  Her mild appearance was just hiding her true personality.  She probably made a promise to her dead mother that she would change her personality.:lol:

lor hahaha

that would be makjang for sure

:tounge_xd:

 

sunny is showing her fangs now and it aint blunt baby, hahaha

one of the reason why i dont want to watch this week eps yet is because i know the suffering sunny had gone through

and i am a sucker for jang nara's when she's acting all down and pitiful and her crying scenes is just heart wrenching

she's really good at that

if i watch and since the cliffhanger is still with her being pushed down i would be moody the whole day for sure

huhuhu

but i am happy that people are rooting for her now, realy enjoying reading the comments from netizens

and also before i was kinda wishing for some sort of twisted romance between her and lee hyuk aka him liking her and she pushes away

but now even the thought of leehyuk fallen for sunny makes me feel disgusted

you dont even deserve the dirt under her fingernails now, lee hyuk!

The Nanny isn't smart enough though. Unlike Sunny, she hasn't been able to win Ari's heart nor respect at all, how is she going to be the Empress Dowager if and when Ari gets the throne... Seeing the way Ari treats her now, she's going to have a headache getting that position. Whatever she is trying to achieve is just so laughable....:phew:

Hello guys! Looks like you're having fun! But I am all confused.

 

  • I don't get Wang Sik..?! I mean, his face looks cunning when he's with Lee Hyuk & Yu Ra but, the way he's hurting Sunny is way too realistic! He wants to assure Lee Hyuk that he's on Lee Hyuk's side or something.?!
  • AND OMG!!!! The naive girl has become a brave girl all of a sudden! Sunny should've held Yu Ra's hair for a long time... Hehehehe :D What a masterpiece!!! But with granny's death, Sunny would be a lonely girl next week!! She should have someone nice by her side! Wang Sik is not an option. May be Yoon should do the trick!
  • And I still think Yu Ra killed granny!! Yu Ra has her reasons to kill her!

After watching the latest episode, I must say I'm a little disappointed in the way they have written Sunny's character. She is indeed coming off as the Dowager has described her - vulgar in temperament (entirely not befitting that of royalty) and thus not wise at all. Yes, she does explain it off herself when she tells the Grand Dowager that she has a temper. But it's really more than just having a temper. If she had not gone off telling everyone that she had the Grand Dowager's backing, I doubt Grandma would have been murdered. Surely with her uncovering the shadiness of the preceding Empress's death, she should have known well enough to bite her tongue and bide her time. I'm a little disappointed in Sunny here, actually.
