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

Recommended Posts

And if I may add. I think it is not Sunny who is behaving like a child. It is Princess So-Jin. Considering that she grew up in the palace and had an upbringing of a princess, she still throw tantrums LOL But she is a princess who probably did not get any favor throughout her life and also became a front for his brother's wrongdoings.

Everyone, get your popcorn or whatever you prefer. Sit back, relax and enjoy the show!

GO SUNNY! GO GRANNY! BEAT THEM UP!:thumbsup:

When Granny took the wig off, you knew it was about to get real!:lol:

giphy.gif

LH... Just because you're emperor, don't expect that you can do whatever you want and not get away with it. It doesn't work that way. Do stuff like that and it will come back to bite you in the butt later. Same goes to YR. Then WS... Come on man! My poor Sunny, she can't trust anyone but Granny.

 

I can't wait to see the look of LH's face when he realizes that Sunny was never playing him. Her feelings for him were truly genuine, she was never after his money and actually cared about him until he pulled this mess.

Could be love for YR. Maybe lust from our pov but love from LH's ...everyone definition of love is different.

Now I have been thinking how they will develop the relationship between S & WS after these recent development. If Sunny forgives too easily, I would be bummed because it is a cop-out since WS made some bad decisions at her expense for his own goals. I can’t accept if they go with the usual ‘ I have saved you before and/or again now that you have feelings for me - forgive me etc.’ He better earn back her trust lol. I just recall the Princess and swimming pool scene. I think it is setting up something....(if anyone finds out about her white swimsuit please tell me! I love it!)

Sunny is already suspecting WS is a double agent when she saw the mark on his hand. When she found out Byun's connection with WS, she'll know that WS never mean to harm her. Maybe even Byun will tell her directly... anyway, we're only about one-third into the drama, still so far from the end, many things can still happen.

I finally caught up. 

 

-Ms. Hong is still in contact with the former Chief Guard Buyn. What will Ms. Hong's role be in the master plan? Is she as simple as an assistant to the GED? 

-WB purposely raised his hands to fix his suit jacket. I believe he meant for her to see the scar. I think he knew she was there.

So let see how many teams do we have in this game:
Team A: Dowager Empress
Team B: Emperor and Yu Ra
Team C: Woo Bin and Byun
Team D: Empress/Sunny 
Team E: Nanny and Prime Minister

May the strongest man standing.
 

Side notes:

-Emperor has a strong taste, perform bedroom act in public :D ..none of the windows on the yatch has curtain
-Prince Yoon climbed through the ceiling's plenum without a single dust on his white shirt..wow..
-When Sunny saved the woman, what she told her was like telling it to herself.
-I like Sunny's sister. She is strong, physically and mentally/emotionally as well. The way she threw a man over her shoulder, dang..Sunny should recruit her to be on her team. 

-For a moment I felt bad for the Emperor (the memory of his father). He was just a kid then, instead of explaining the expectations, they just yelled at him, berated him then turned around and praised his younger brother. Such actions would affect a child mentally. No wonder the emperor turned out to be a lunatic with nothing but rage, jealousy and delusion.

-I like the bird (emperor's sister). She might be selfish and petty but she is not evil, more like simple minded. She probably doesn't have the brain for evilness.

I also think that Granny was killed by two different people. 

Hyuk put in the poison.  Yura, not knowing about the poison, stabbed her with the hairpin.  (Just like in Murder on the Orient Express.)

And, when the truth is revealed, they will have a Romeo and Juliet ending.

 

Hahaha, a makjang drama utilizing Agatha Christie and Shakespeare.  :w00t:

@Auntie Mame I too think that she was killed by 2 different ppl. But I am not so sure about the emperor that ordered the poison. I am debating between between him and his mother. At first, I was so sure that Yu Ra stabbed her with the hair pin. But then, isn't that too obvious. The scene where the GED threw the hair pin could serve either as a foreshadow but so an intention to mislead viewers into thinking Yu Ru as the murderer, and then the writer could throw in a twist in there...

@stella77 I think he actually does care about that stuff or he just lacks it because he really experienced for the first time with his first love and hasn't had it since. I think he doesn't want to let that kind of stuff back into his life because of her and feels it as a weakness.

Just watched the episode.

 

WS pushed her off a cliff?? That piece of ASDFGHJKL :rage:

 

Ok now I just want Sunny to avenge Grandma's death and take revenge on LH, YR and WS!!! What even bro?? You're in the same predicament as her - she was also betrayed!! I really don't know how a love arc is gonna happen between the two after this <_<

 

But a makjang is a makjang.

Expect the unexpected.

We'll just wait and see I guess...

I want to weigh in on who killed The Grand Empress Dowager.  I think the poisoning was done by The Empress Dowager.  She had told her Princess daughter before not to mention that Ari was not her biological daughter or they would be thrown out of the Palace.  I believe Sunny told GED about Ari being the Emperor's and Nanny's daughter, and as a result, the GED had to be killed.  The stabbing, I think was done by YR, because she felt the Emperor and her position was being threatened.  We know she is not above murder since she tried to kill her own mother/step-mother.

 

It may not have been very (royal) but, I personally like how Sunny, threw water on the Emperor, pulled YR's hair and called them trash.  She later slapped him and pushed him out of the way.  They deserved that and more.  She is standing up to them and I am sure they were not expecting that from her.  I know the Emperor thinks she is a lowlife and trash, but she will be the end of him and YR and I can't wait to see how she does it.  Fighting!!

I also think that Sunny, Woo Bin, Byun may team up too? 

 

Idk why but maybe Lee Hyuk has a mental disorder? Like he ends up harming a person but can't remember after a point? Maybe he did kill his first wife and then Empress Dowager finished off the murder with her owns hands? 

 

On a side note - why is Chun Woo Bin so hot?????:w00t::lol:

i dont know why but i just dont think of lee hyuk as killer.. yes he’s pretty crazy but his mother is wayyyy crazier than him.. i think she’s the mastermind of everything.. 

 

somehow i pity lee hyuk.. despite being the emperor, he still has insecurities and doesnt really has real power.. his mother is  crazy and his lover uses him but he is so blind to everything..

 

btw i hv a question, does the royal family own a mall? that is so weird..

 

did u guys see princess so jin’s pink outfit when she was throwing tantrum at the mall coz yura is appointed as ceo? whoaaa that is one crazy outfit.. i wonder if the royal family has dress code at all..

@Pam_Van Fossen Before she became an Empress, she was just a common citizen leading a simple life so I don't find her reaction surprising. She cries when feels hurt, screams when upset. I find her reaction is a bit light especially after her husband cheated on her, hired to kill her. Different personality reacts differently when presented a similar situation. I too like her reaction. At least it shows she still has a good heart. The first thing that came to her mind wasn't "I will kill them both".

 

@msaamia the reason I didn't list Sunny, Woo Bin and Byun because for now, Woo Bin betrayed her. She still has doubt about him. I too will miss the GED. She was the only support Sunny had, now, she has no one to turn to for help against the Emperor (until she could trust Woo Bin), no one to cry to.

 

@Matilda_Anne I believe so. Just think of it as privately owned property/investment so with the royal family owning the mall or a piece of land etc is normal.

According to the plot summary, the imperial family owns many investments and companies, and they are responsible for the growth of Korea. But in the drama, they showed they owned a mall and a hotel, aside from others. The mall is just one piece of the many companies they owned.

Looks like the empress dowager stole money from the companies. For me, it shows how greedy this woman is, that even if she is part of the imperial family, she still has the nerve to do corruption.

I was trying to avoid unfinished drama but "The Last Empress" and "Children of Nobody" lured me in. Among every characters that are in the drama, I find LH's character the most interesting. Yura is one dimensional...a greedy woman who doesn't really like the emperor but just wants to climb up to the top. WS or WB is like Oh Sunny...both of them are starting to grow fangs to live, survive, and fight in the palace (both of them were so innocent and soft hearted--WS couldn't bring himself to abandon his adopted brother and Oh Sunni was so gullible). The Empress Dowager was always conniving. Grandma....the only voice of reason and so sincere, was delightful, but quite one dimensional. 

 

LH, on the other hand, is very dynamic. He felt inferior when he was just a child because he was compared with his younger brother. He definitely was in love with the first empress and the viewer got a glimpse of his best side before he became the cold-blooded person he currently is. 

 

LH is definitely not innocent. He threatened the reporter that questioned him at the beginning of the drama...and that was before he found out his own mother was spying on him. He was ready to order the death of Yura to get rid of the only witness to his murder and he was ready to murder Oh Sunny--twice--just so he could get out of the marriage. He's arrogant and pompous...tossing others away and discarding them when he has no use with them. 

 

Then he has a soft side...as side that yearns for love. He fell in love with Yura not because he really loved her--just a few moments ago...he was ordering her death--because he really think she was one person in this world who really loves him and she demonstrates that by always sticking to his side and sacrificing herself for him. Once she did that for him, he clings onto her...because he had been so deprived of love (his mother is spying on him, people in the palace follows or listen to his mom, his dad looks down at him, his only love left him...only his grandmother really care for him). If he had meet Oh Sunny earlier on, and if Oh Sunny had made a sacrifice for him, he would have just fallen for her just as hard. 

 

And although he threaten his Grandma by telling her that he didn't want to lose control in front of her and that he wouldn't know what he would do to her if he did lose control, he never lost control and hurt his grandma. If others were slapping Yura and hitting him with a stick, he would have lashed out already, but with his grandmother, he ran away like a regular grandchild. That shows how much he cared about his grandmother even though he made that threat. 

 

So in a way, LH is pitiful, but it doesn't erase the atrocities he had done in the past and present. He's one of the most developed character in the drama, as of now, and I can't wait to see how he will ultimately fall.

Man, seeing Ari's reaction after she heard the secret that she is a princess,  and her father is the  king, I am positive that insanity runs in the blood of the royal family.  The kid looked absolutely maniacal.:lol:

 

And, the swimming pool scene really bothered me.  The thoughts that instantly came to mind were anorexia and death camp survivor. :mellow:  I was really appalled.

"The Last Empress" Jang Nara Must Fight Alone

On the latest episode of the SBS drama "The Last Empress", Sunny (Jang Nara) declared revenge on the Imperial Family".

 

Lee Hyeok (Shin Sung-rok) tried to get rid of Sunny and make it look like suicide. However, Sunny made it back thanks to Teacher Byeon (Kim Myung-soo). Sunny also found out about Empress So-hyeon's tragic end. Teacher Byeon was Empress So-hyeon's father.

 

Sunny was determined not to meet the same fate as Empress So-hyeon by Lee Hyeok and Yoo-ra. She said, "I'm not getting kicked out. I am going to get my justice and leave here boldly".

 

She seemed so strong in front of Lee Hyeok and Yoo-ra, but she cried in front of the Queen Mother (Park Won-sook). Sunny explained everything and said, "You're the only person I can trust. Please help me reveal the truth". The Queen Mother said, "If the emperor really tried to hurt you, I won't forgive him and I don't care if he's the emperor. However, everything has a process and we can't move too quickly".

 

The Queen Mother then found Lee Hyeok and slapped him. She yelled, "How is my grandson this nasty? The Empress is a mess, but how can you be such a monster?" Lee Hyeok retorted, "From this moment on, Sunny is no longer empress. I don't care what you say, I'm going to make Min Yoo-ra empress".

 

Sunny provoked the Queen by threatening, "I am going to reveal the truth about this Royal Family for the people to see, even about Empress So-hyeon". The Queen became angry but Sunny said, "Don't start yet. I haven't even told you what happened 7 years ago".

 

However, things took a turn for Sunny. The only person on her side, the Queen Mother, was murdered.
