    in this series, if the emperor yuan is a coward it is because he was not properly brought up from childhood.

    I think the King is the true love of SN. He is mature and thoughtful while the Emperor is childish and weak. Both actors are good though. A good drama to be recommended.

    it’s is true that the episode will be extended to 51? i think at the end of this drama will be when the time empress ki leave the empire, according to the history, she left without trace after her son Prince Ayu become emperor.

  8. 808
    Carmen Says:

    For the shots I have been able to see, I think the best for Empress Ki, is to left the Emperor, if you have seen it from start she is always giving giving giving, but no one appreciate all she has done, and she needs to be Happy, from the biggining that Emperor was weak, what can she expect from him he will always be a puppet of some one….that is the way he is. Too bad for her she did try…but he did nothing for her…now is too late to make her Empress….and by the way where is the other one?

    miss A Says:

    this drama brought me different emotions, mind you guys im still in epi23 long way to go compared to most of u,,i wanted to stop watching it but i end up watching the next epi..i hate it cause its full of tragedy, man’s wickedness and evry evil they may think, and it makes me sad and torn for SY,and i keep on asking what must she have done wrong to deserve that…… though i love this drama, i really do, cause the’re great actors,and somehow im attached to it…but i dont want to be part of their misery and in my condition,its not good,it affects me too much.that only means this is a great work of entertainment.. .oh right there’s their romance but just for moment and another tragedy again, well i guess and hope SY will end up happy with her true love(WY) for this is what she deserves.. this is just for me and mine alone.
    Fighting Sungnyang!!

    ep 47

    I thought Maha would be the king of Goryeo later, but he died young..so sad…and that’s TH servant /Gol Ta is “Daebak Leader” who always use mask…ooooo dunno in whose side he is ?!

    I guess next episode is only a battle of Goryeo ppl n TH ppl…the crisis between SY n TH relationship…hmmm u guy who like SY N WY together, will be happy ;) )

    eny Says:

    so sad maha, it’s ironic how SY take care of the emperor n his son suffer physically n emotionally alone without someone that he love, i’m a bit mad to SY when he told maha is abandon child just after he get hurt from, I want her to cry n regret it.

    @hny jo
    I don’t want WY love her anymore
    I want SY regreting her choice

  21. 821
    Carmen Says:

    eny, if she said that she is his mother, Maha’s live will be in more danger, I think she did the best for him—and the best was to take him out of the Palace, because sooner or later they all going to find out that he was her kid after all!!!

  22. 822
    eny Says:

    of course she shouldn’t say she is his mother, i think she doesn’t have to reveal he’s not TN son, just keep the secret n live in the palace n try to get closer to her to minimalize dowager influence to him. Maha is lonely kids in the palace sending him out to the palace is more misserable for him esp after just get hurt n haven’t fully recover she reveal his identity, i know her intention is to protect him but i think it’s bad decision
