At the similar time Ta-hwan unearths inside strength, Wang Yoo continues to exploit public sentiment and worry of superstition to his benefit so as to back El Temur into a corner. It works well, yet the superb thing about El Temur as a villain is that he isn't without difficulty shaken. There is a huge number of bloodshed and torture and death, very realistic happenings for this time period. here's what "Empress Qi" does well, blending other political intentions, gamers and scenarios to weave an overly complicated, intriguing story.
I haven"t discussed Seung-nyang in some time because her personality stagnated a bit. But now she has Wang Yoo close to her, she"s repeatedly on edge and the usage of her intelligence to assist him, even in the strict confines of her role as a palace maid. The pain she suffers when he shoves her away accidentally brings her closer to Ta-hwan who she doesn"t care for. However, she does empathize with him, which may be the secret to their ultimate political union.
Proximity to Seung-nyang has done Wang Yoo"s character some just right as well. He after all has anything that makes him less-than-perfect: love. It makes him vulnerable and irrational, something this is wanted for his character to err, be informed and grow. Even beneath the drive of combat Wang Yoo remained steadfast. it's far love that really demanding situations his strength of will. It may be love that I"ve been waiting to peer more completely developed.
Although I dearly love "Empress Qi", there were a couple of glaring weaknesses. First was once the creation of Girl Noh, the popular concubine of Ta-hwan"s father. She become very manifestly brought in to extra the blood vow blood line and she should"ve been said much previous to make the surprising introduction less awkward. there has been quite a few time to do it as Seung-nyang learned her way round the palace. The alternative moment that was well-played for tension, but awkward relating to character continuity was the finishing of the episode. It was uncharacteristic of Wang Yoo to put himself in any such unhealthy position even under the duress of staring at the lady loves under every other man"s power. the instant was played to thrill the viewers, but did now not sit down neatly with the overall tone of the drama.
Also, as the resident musician reviewer, I would have to mention how amazing the background tune in this drama. The use of length tools alternated with a drumset heavy rock track turns out herbal in spite of the truth that this is decided long sooner than Andy Anderson existed. The music production is terribly blank and complements the physical fantastic thing about the show.
