The Couch Kimchi ladies and I are hoping she’ll enjoy this experience so much that she’ll want to stick around and write about other dramas. *hehehe* So please welcome our first guest-writer – Rinchan!
Rinchan: Thanks again for the invitation, as well as the warm welcome. Empress Ki is the first drama that I have ever decided to post my thoughts on in Soompi and the people there, including Tess, have made it a fun, interesting place to not only share your thoughts, but read the thoughts of others. Once again thanks for having me, I look forward to enjoying the coming episodes with you.
