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
With its second episode, SBS’ God’s Gift – 14 Days set down its plotline, piercing fear and thrill into the viewers.
The first two episodes introduced the characters, before immediately jumping into kidnapping and murder of the drama’s youngest character. 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.
Although the drama received a ratings increase, so did MBC’s Empress Ki, who kept its overwhelming record at first.
Ha Ji Won and Ji Chang Wook will finally get a little bit closer in the upcoming episode of MBC’s “Empress Ki.”
In the photos revealed on March 2, Seung Nyang (Ha Ji Won) is affectionately taking care of Ta Hwan (Ji Chang Wook), who got hit by a poison-tipped arrow trying to save Seung Nyang during a hunting competition, where Yeon Chul (Jun Gook Hwan) tried to kill the couple by setting up traps throughout the hunting area.
At the end of the latest episode, while attempting to reveal Yeon Chul as the culprit, Seung Nyang is dragged out of the room, for having been unable to protect the emperor. The revealed photos, showing Seung Nyang back at Ta Hwan’s side, are piquing viewers’ curiosity as to how she escapes from her current situation
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
The timeless icon of beauty, Audrey Hepburn, reportedly once said, “And the beauty of a woman, with passing years only grows!” It seems actress Park Shin Hye would agree.
On an interview with MBC’s weekly entertainment news show, “Section TV,” Park Shin Hye commented, “I don’t think my beauty is complete yet.” She explained, “I think a woman’s beauty comes out in her 40s. When I grow older, I want to be as beautiful as [my senior actresses] Lee Mi Yeon, Jun Do Hyun, and Kim Hee Ae.”
Park Shin Hye also expressed her desire to meet another one of her senior actresses, Ha Ji Won. She complimented the “Empress Ki” actress, saying, “Ha Ji Won freely moves from action to melodrama

“Empress Ki” – Episode 31 - 32 Recap by Couch-Kimchi:
This week, wuri Rinchan is taking two important finals so I’ll be recapping alone. I’m sure we all agree that school is more important so let’s cheer her on! As I’ve said, I’ve been watching this drama since the beginning but I think this week was the best so far. Maybe because the good guys are finally taking baby steps towards exterminating the evil? I’ve been wanting for a long time so I’m excited.
“Your pain is not even pain.”
Punishment In The Cold Palace
I’m not normally one who screeches for the villains to die. In fact, I’m usually very calm, requesting they just serve jail time (if warranted) or seek forgiveness from those they’ve wronged
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.
Yoon Kye Sang and Han Ji Hye‘s drama, “Beyond the Clouds,” received rather low ratings for its premiere.
KBS 2TV drama “Beyond the Clouds” aired its first episode on January 17 and received a viewership rating of 3.7%. This was a 2.4% drop from the 6.1% ratings its predecessor, “Prime Minister and I,” received. Knowing that the drama will air in a very competitive time slot, “Beyond the Clouds” had tried to be strategic in its opening by airing its first two episodes together. However, the second episode received and improved, but still low, rating of 5.1%.
With Yoon Kye Sang and Han Ji Hye leading the cast and a solid story line, “Beyond the Clouds” doesn’t lack in star power or storytelling, but its starting at a time when its competitors have already developed a strong and loyal following
Although scheduling isn’t completely back to normal due to the Olympics, MBC’s Empress Ki is still charging through, hitting a new high ratings.
On Monday night, Empress Ki hit 26.5 percent, recording its highest ratings since its debut. It previously held 25.3 percent as its highest.
With last Tuesday’s episode canceled due to the Olympics, viewers seemed to have been waiting for the new episode.
On the flipside, KBS kicked off its new drama, which was postponed due to the sporting event. The Full Sun ran two episodes straight, receiving much praise from the audience, but results show that it still has a long way to go before it can catch up with Empress Ki.
New Monday & Tuesday KBS drama “Beyond the Clouds” will broadcast its first and second episodes on February 17. “Beyond the Clouds” will be competing for ratings against SBS drama “Kind Words” and MBC historical drama “Empress Ki.”
“Beyond the Clouds” follows the drama “Prime Minister and I,” which had fallen to last place in the rating against the currently airing SBS and MBC drama. “Beyond the Clouds” hopes to change the ranking of the ratings with its production quality and story.
KBS commented “Last week, there was hot response to the teaser for ‘Beyond the Clouds.’ We are able to check viewer anticipation for the drama.”
Yoon Kye Sang, Han Ji Hye, Jo Jin Woong, and Kim Yoo Ri will star in this drama. “Beyond the Clouds” is a melodrama that starts in Thailand where a man, Jung Se Ro (Yoon Kye Sang), loses his father and life due to a diamond robbery
“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
Being one of the stars who don’t seem to age, Ha Ji Won has revealed her secret to staying young.
In an interview with Ha Ji Won uploaded on MBC’s Empress Ki’s official website on February 11, the actress was asked about her secret to looking young.
“I think it really depends on your mindset,” said Ha Ji Won. “I don’t really think about my age or time.”
She said, “There’s a certain behavior, style or way you talk when you’re 20 years old. I think those things are what make me young. I try to take younger roles as much as I can,” then quickly added, “I’m just joking.”
Promoting her drama, she added, “The second stage has begun. The episodes will feature more veiled enmity, tension and incidents between the characters. So don’t miss out on the upcoming episodes
Kdrama Empress Ki: Eps 28 Recap by thetalkingcupboard
As Ta-hwan was holding the unconscious Seung-nyang in his arms, Tanashiri got to know that he went to the library. She wanted to prevent Seung-nyang from leaving the place with him and went there. Seung-nyang woke up and realized that she had lost consciousness for a while. Ta-hwan tried to persuade her into getting out of the library, but she refused to do so and continued to do the copying. He wanted to know what he could do for him, but Seung-nyang made him realize that he could do nothing, even protecting her from the people against her. She told him not to do anything for her, and she would do the same for him.
Tanashiri started to shout outside, calling for Ta-hwan to leave the Inner Court matters to her and not to interfere with her business
Holding onto both smiles and tears, KBS’ Prime Minster and I came to an end on Tuesday night.
The drama jumped from 4.9 to 6.1 percent with its final episode, but still remained in third place in the Monday-Tuesday drama competition. The drama was not able to break 10 percent in its run, especially with a strong competitor like MBC’s Empress Ki.
However, without last minute twists. Prime Minister and I wrapped up with warmth and sweetness in the air with its family-related plotline about the contracted marriage between a prime minister and a scandal reporter.
The Full Sun will pick up after Prime Minister and I on February 10.
With just one episode remaining, KBS′ Prime Minister and I hit its all-time low.
On Monday night, Prime Minister and I dropped to 4.9 percent, its lowest ratings ever since the drama began in December of 2013.
The episode also proved to be important as a big decision was made by Nam Da Jung (Yoona) in terms of her marriage with Kwon Yul (Lee Bum Soo), especially with the return of his wife, who was thought to be dead.
Meanwhile, MBC′s Empress Ki stayed in the 20 percent range with 23.9. SBS′ A Warm Word recorded 9.9.
“Empress Ki”- Episode 25 - 26 Recap by Couch-Kimchi:
This week’s episodes were so awesome, it has placed me on a high that has circumvented my sorrow from the past episodes. Each week Empress Ki has pumped out episodes that are often fresh, exciting, and full of something to talk about, so in light of this, Tessie and I have decided to switch the format of our recap. Instead of a scene by scene recap, we will discuss what happened and put in our insights.
“So former enemies meet again. Fate is funny.”
