Empress Ki Ep34 Recap by thetalkingcupboard.wordpress.com

Seung-nyang stopped right in front of Yoo for a moment of angsty and accusing stare from her side and the guards were ordered to drag her away, but Ta-hwan’s arrival at the throne hall turned out to be a surprise for all of them. Tanashiri expressed her (faked?) relief to see him up and walking, but he’s only interested in what were they doing with Lady Ki. Seung-nyang was happy to have him recovering from the poison and Ta-hwan smiled at her reassuringly. They only had eyes for each other, as if they were the only people in the hall! Still, I feel bad for Yoo, who must felt a pang of sadness upon hearing Seung-nyang’s concern directed towards Ta-hwan

Viewers have been praising the high quality story, as well as the acting of Lee Bo Young, who perfectly portrayed a mother who is willing to do anything to save her child.

The episodes also brought up many social issues that have been taking place in Korea, sending fear at the possibility that what’s happening in the drama could easily happen in real life.

Ha Ji Won Shows a Special Love for Horses on “Empress Ki”

By in News posted Oct March 2nd, 2014 No comments

Actress Ha Ji Won was born in 1978, the Year of the Horse, so it’s no wonder that she has a special bond with horses.

Ha Ji Won has spent a great deal of time with horses on MBC Monday-Tuesday drama’s “Empress Ki,” having had many horse-riding scenes in the early part of the drama. She recently got back into the saddle five months after her last horseback ride last September.

On the February 24 episode of “Empress Ki” (Episode 32), Ha Ji Won’s Seung Nyang went on a horse riding date with Ta Hwan (Ji Chang Wook) to practice for a hunting competition. She showed off the results of special horse riding training she had received at a riding club, drawing her bow while riding her horse quite professionally.

Action scenes require quite a great deal of practice, and while actors may sometimes choose to use a stunt double to minimize risk, Ha Ji Won generally prefers to choose her own scenes

How Does Joo Jin Mo Feel About His Shortened Screen Time on “Empress Ki”?

By in News posted Oct February 20th, 2014 No comments

Actor Joo Jin Mo currently stars as Wang Yoo on MBC’s Monday-Tuesday sageuk “Empress Ki,” but his screen time has declined recently.

Joo Jin Mo’s role in the 50-episode drama is of fictitious Goryeo king, Wang Yoo, who experiences the pain of being unable to be with the person he loves, Ki Seung Nyang (Ha Ji Won), yet he continues to support her from the shadows.

In the earlier stages of the drama, Wang Yoo and Ki Seung Nyang shared a romance that set hearts racing. However, lately “Empress Ki” has shifted its focus more to Seung Nyang, now Ta Hwan’s (Ji Chang Wook) royal concubine, and Empress Tanashiri (Baek Jin Hee), and the power battle with highly influential Yeon Chul (Jun Gook Hwan).

Joo Jin Mo’s agency commented on February 19, “He’s a person too, and he is bound to feel slightly upset that his importance has been significantly reduced

Another day of cancellations had MBC’s Empress Ki as the only drama that aired, but the cancellations seemed justified as South Korea scored a gold in the 3000 m women’s short track event.

Even though the Olympic events continued, Empress Ki continued to rise, even just a mere 0.1 percent.

Still on schedule, KBS’ Our Neighborhood Variety and Sports covered the Olympics with the cast actually performing in Sochi to help cheer on the athletes and broadcast the events as sportscasters and reporters.

They covered Lee Sang Hwa′s 500m woman′s speed skating event, in which Lee Sang Hwa took the gold.

“Empress Ki” – Episode 29 - 30 Recap by Couch-Kimchi:

Episode 29 is the culmination of all the plotting done in the past episodes. The palace was flooded with a sea of tears and indignation originating from our villains, and brightened by our heroes smiles of victory. This was one evil, laughter inducing episode.

Wang Yoo’s new reality

“She is no longer your henchman or your lover”

Rinchan: Wang Yoo’s eyes gleamed with the thought of seeing Ki. He must be envisioning a near future where he can lovingly hold his fiancée and a distant future where he can cherish her and their children for their rest of their lives. However TalTal’s words shattered that, his life goals set with Ki in mind have been reduced to a pipe dream
