Sinopsis Drama Korea Empress Ki Hwatu Episode 17 Part 1
Korean Drama The Heirs (Inheritors) Episode 20 Recap by joonni
Tan and Young Do stand apart, but together, looking out into the city. YD finally breaks the silence: “It’s cold.” He’s describing the weather, but it is also how he feels. Tan adds, “It’s cold…and dark.” Silence falls between them again as they each try to fight off the cold and dark feeling hovering over them because of their fathers.
At a cafe, Tan discusses his situation with a woman, who we learn is a lawyer. Tan doesn’t trust the lawyers at Jeguk anymore, and he wants this new lawyer’s help transferring legal proxy rights to Won from JS for his stocks.
MBC’s popular drama series “Empress Ki” has secured its ratings crown for a whopping 10th week in a row.
The 50-part historic epic dominated AGB Nielsen Media Research (Nielsen Korea)’s ratings chart again after drawing in an average viewership of 18.5 percent during January 6 and 7, the chart showed on Wednesday.
Sitting at the No. 2 place is SBS’s melodrama “One Warm Word,” which nabbed in an average of 9.6 percent of total viewers in the same time frame.
KBS’s romantic comedy series “Prime Minister & I” continued to sit at the bottom place with an average mark of 7.3 percent.
Meanwhile, TNmS’s (Total National Multimedia Statistic) survey showed the three programs in the same order yet slightly lower numbers than Nielsen Korea’s.
“Empress Ki” continued its top seed with an average score of 17.8 percent, while “One Warm Word” and “Prime Minister” followed next two spots, each with average numbers of 7.5 and 6.5 percent, respectively.
“Empress Ki” – Episode 19 – 20 Recap by Couch-Kimchi:
I was going insane for new episodes of Empress Ki (and waiting for subs) to the point that I started to forget what this drama was about. (LOL) The award shows were nice, it was fun seeing our cast sitting together, laughing and talking. And it was really nice to see them win! But I wanted to get back to the show, I was up very early to catch both episodes live. Let’s talk about what happened!
From “Let It Go” off the Frozen OST, Soyu and JunggiGo’s duet “Some” to Park Wan Kyu’s single for the Empress Ki OST, “Wind Breeze,” music charts have recently begun to look richer in variety. The charts are flush with movie and drama OST tracks, indie band offerings, as well as releases from solo singer-songwriters. The February music charts so far feature a diversity of genres and musicians, leaving one wondering if the idol chart domination of music charts is a thing of the past?
Korea’s top actors Hyun Bin, Jang Dong Gun, Park Joong Hoon, Joo Jin Mo, Hwang Jung Min and Cha Tae Hyun all reunited to have some dinner and a few drinks. This picture was posted on one of Jang Dong Gun’s fan websites under the title, “Recent drinking party.”
Set as a selca taken by Park Joong Hoon, the picture gathered lots of attention as it showed many of the famous male actors who are quite hard to find other than in movies and dramas. Hwang Jung Min seems to be showing the fun through his comical expression, and Cha Tae Hyun through his V-Sign.
This past week, the fourth week of April, was a complicated one for TV programming in terms of broadcast. As most prime time variety shows and dramas were suspended while the nation waited anxiously for good news from the site of the Sewol ferry disaster, news programming and more serious broadcast like documentaries filled in the empty air time.
KBS programming swept the weekly rankings for ratings in both news, drama, and documentary program. First place went to KBS 1TV’s daily drama, “Melody of Love” (aka “Love Rides the Song“) which raked in 28.3%, according to Nielsen Korea’s April 21 release of the “Weekly Ratings Top 50 Programs.” Ratings were collected between from April 14 – April 20.
Super Junior members Kangin and Eunhyuk will team up with actress Baek Jin Hee as the three MCs of the 2014 “Dream Concert,” to be held on June 7.
Organized by the Korea Entertainment Producer’s Association, the Dream Concert is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and the lineup boasts some of K-pop’s most well-loved groups. The likes of Girls’ Generation, EXO, BEAST, 4Minute and BlockB, as well as many others, will be performing at the event, and all the proceeds from the tickets will be donated to charities that deal with providing education to the poor.
Two years ago actors Ahn Sung Ki and Lee Byung Hun became the first Korean actors to press their handprints into a cement block that would be placed in front of Grauman”s Chinese Theater in Hollywood. But they are not likely to be the last Korean actors to take part in the 90-year-old Hollywood tradition for rising stars.
Hollywood”s interest in Hallyu actors has only grown in the last few years as more Korean actors appear in international and American productions.
Ha Ji Won”s latest charity work is going to help children smile. She recently became the second Asian honorary ambassador of the children”s charity known as Operation Smile. As Jackie Chan was the first Asian ambassador, she is the first Asian woman to represent the group. Past representatives include Mariah Carey and Jessica Simpson.
The international children”s medical charity provides cleft lip and palate surgeries, as well as ongoing medical therapies to children with facial deformities. The charity helps children in less developed countries, currently reaching out to children in 63 nations.
Twitter Korea revealed their list of top trending drama characters of 2014 featuring the drama characters that drew the most attention on Twitter this year.
The list started out with Yeon Min Jung from the MBC drama “Jang Bo Ri is Here!” who was illustrated as one of the best and most bizarre type of antagonist in 2014. With her immoral and unspeakable acts she performed in order to become the wife of a chaebol, Yeon Min Jung garnered much attention on Twitter.
Roundtable: The Annual Valentine’s Chocolate Game! Written by Seoulbeats On February 13, 2015
It’s that time of the year again!
The K-pop gods have, for some reason, granted you the opportunity to give a Valentine’s Day gift to all the members of your Hallyu bias list. You slave away, hand-making chocolate for your bias list and your efforts pay off. Unfortunately, the chocolates are so delicious that you get carried away with the taste-testing.
You realize too late that you’ve eaten pretty much all of the chocolate — only three pieces are left. You look at the measly amount sitting on the kitchen bench, then at your bias list. After hurriedly beseeching the K-pop gods to magically multiply your now-pitiful stash (which doesn’t work, by the way) you come to the realization that, this year, you may have to be a bit more economical with your love.
On one of the occasions when Ji Sung”s “Kill Me, Heal Me” character Cha Do Hyun dines with the family of his psychiatrist, played by Hwang Jung Eum, the family stops to share Lunar New Year”s greetings with each other and the audience. But what exactly is the Lunar New Year and how is it celebrated?
Lunar New Year or Seollal is like Christmas, New Year”s and a big birthday party celebrated at the same time. It”s a three-day national holiday that often turns into a five-day holiday as people travel to their ancestral homes to honor their ancestors and spend time with their families. On Seollal everyone is one year older, no matter what day they were actually born on.
Kim Soo Hyun recently confirmed his role in the upcoming KBS drama “The Producer.” But until recently he was also considering a role in a supernatural MBC drama titled “Night Strolling Scholar.”
It was a hard decision to make. Here are the pros for each drama and why he chose one over the other.
“Night Strolling Scholar” is an adaptation of a webtoon with the same title. In that historical fantasy drama he would play a handsome mysterious scholar who is also a vampire. His vampire character wanders through the Joseon-era palace until he meets a girl disguised as a bookseller. Viewers know that Kim Soo Hyun can excel at a historical drama because he was so good in “The Moon Embracing The Sun.” And taking part in that drama would have reunited him with Lee Sung Joon, the director of the wildly successful “Moon Embracing The Sun.” Lee also directed last year”s hit “Empress Ki.” The writer Jang Hyun Joo wrote “Coffee Prince.”
Yoo In Young has turned up in quite a few recent dramas, playing women who might not be likeable but are always appealing. And now she”s taken another complex role in the upcoming SBS drama “Mask.”
The actress alternated playing two roles in 2013. She played the fierce female warrior Yeon Bi Su in “Empress Ki,” while she at the same time playing Jun Ji Hyun”s frenemy and rival Han Yoo Ra in “You Who Came From The Stars.”

Korean actress Ha Ji Won and Taiwanese actor Chen Bolin have denied the rumors that those stars are dating. yet how did those rumors even start?
There are a couple of reasons that set the rumors in motion.
1. The couple posted a sequence of equivalent photographs on their social media accounts at the same time. the photographs incorporated every actor winking with a cat, an image of Gustav Klimt”s noted portray “The Kiss” and about a starry perspectives of the evening sky.
