Having turned just 27 this year (Korean age), Kim Soo Hyun has become one of Korea’s representative and irreplaceable actors.
From his early project Giant to the most recent syndrome-causing You Who Came From the Stars, the actor has been setting records with his successful projects.
With numerous places sending out love calls, Kim Soo Hyun turned all of this success to those around him and remained humble.
Having just completed filming, without having chance to look around at the explosive response surrounding him, Kim Soo Hyun looked rather relaxed and calm. One could see the actor has finally left behind ‘Do Min Jun,’ the character who struggled with deep emotions, from the looks of ease on his face.
-How would you compare Do Min Jun to Kim Soo Hyun?
“(Do) Min Jun knows many things, but I need to study a lot more
Even after Shinichi receives one of Baek-san’s finishing moves, he continues to fight until a group of Kaya’s henchmen come to fetch him on her orders. Shinichi refuses at first, wanting to finish the fight, but acquiesces immediately when the henchmen show him a mysterious black bag.
Baek-san acts all friendly to Jung-tae after the fight, though Jung-tae’s not too keen on returning the kindness. He promises to repay the debt he owes Baek-san (for saving him from Shinichi), but there’s something darker in that promise—he’s talking revenge.
But Baek-san, none the wiser, tells him that he owes him nothing: “Hwangbang will always protect you.” Oh, you mean when Hwangbang isn’t trying to kill him?
Kaya gets another chance to ask Leader Seol who killed her mother, but instead of answering her directly he tells her about her mother; the way she lived and the way she was loved at Club Shanghai, even though she was the highest female on the yakuza food chain

Yoo In Na confessed that the inferiority complex that her character Yoo Se Mi felt as a supporting actress wasn"t too far off from the truth, "It would be a lie if I said that I wasn"t sad from my lack of screen time. Although I was saddened by things such as my screen time getting shorter, when I thought, "If I was the writer, If I was the viewer," I thought that they would"ve been busy watching Chun Song Yi and Do Min Jun"s love story alone. If I always think from the others" perspectives, it helps me to accommodate and understand. Now I think that not having much screen time is okay

In the woods, a SWAT team sweeps the area with dogs as a man flees for cover.

Seung-nyang continued to have nightmares and showed the new bruise she got on her neck to Taltal (Why am I getting a couple vibe from these two?!). Taltal had ordered for his men to find the shaman in the capital and told Seung-nyang about the tag for the Grim Reaper with her name on it, which would be hidden somewhere around her quarters. The maids conducted a search around her quarters and started digging the compound; however, nothing was found yet. Ta-hwan got to know about the curse after witnessing Seung-nyang having the nightmare and choking him in the process. He also thought that Tanashiri was the only person who would do such thing and he couldn’t stand still, watching her in that kind of suffering
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

While under the sleepy effects of pain medicine, Jin-hee is dreaming of past happy (and sexy) times with Chang-min. In the real world, Chang-min kisses her, then notes the small smile on her face.
Later, Chun-soo comes to check on Jin-hee just as she’s waking up. She tries to get out of bed but he grabs her wrist and tells her to stay and rest. The wrist-grab seems to affect Jin-hee, and she weakly insists that she needs to get back to work, but Chun-soo gruffly tells her that doctors can’t get sick or hurt, because patients sometimes come from very far away to see a doctor, and it’s not right if the doctor is sick or hurt themselves. Jin-hee promises it won’t happen again, and obediently lays back down to rest.
Chang-min tells Yong-gyu about the accident, saying that he’s the best driver ever, so that call “from someone” must have gotten him upset enough to be careless
