    I watched this because of ji chang wook. Then I got hooked by this drama and all of the palace intrigues. But I only liked the yuan part and sadly I was not really interested in the goryeo part of this drama including wang yu although joo jin mo acted as wang yu in an amazing way. I am not saying it because my love for ji chang wook but according to me, I really for the yuan part and of course for tahwan and seungnyang. I could their electrifying chemistry. If only the writer didnt write tahwan into a crazy emperor for the last episodes and gave me more sweet and romantic scenes between my ta-nyang, it would be my favorite sageuk so far

    DramFan Says:

    AMAZING!! The most romantic unconditional love story I have seen.

    When this drama is airing I wanted to watch it because of Ha Ji Won, but streaming 51 episodes online kept me watching this drama. But then I watched Healer. And really fell fo Ji Chang Wook. Because of him and Ha ji Won I started watching this.

    And I found this drama really AMAZING!!

  10. 1010
    DramFan Says:

    What a love the Emperor and the Empress Ki shared. Even though the Emperor lived a short life he’s lucky enough to found the love of his life and to witness an unconditional love.
    And they share an amazing chemistry.

    For my suprise at the end the person I like the most is Tal Tal. A man with wisdom and brave. I love him soo much.

    I feel bad for Wang Yoo. He’s a good person but no luck at all. I really didn’t root for him and Nyang. Joo Jin Mo is a handsome actor but I didn’t like him in this drama.

    I always rooted for Nyang and the Emperor. They have the electrifying chemistry.

    Thank you every one for the wonderful drama!! 🙂 🙂

    Kelly Says:

    I sooo love Ha Ji Won in this drama! Out of all the actors in the show, she’s the one who’s most spot on in terms of acting. She indeed is the Kdrama queen, besting the drama world since 2003 (Damo).

    jerry Says:

    The first time I watch this korean drama, i just thought it’s going to be boring but, as I continue to follow watching every episode i love them all. There should be a continuation after the death of the emperor since empress ki became the empress for a short period of time and then ending came. I want to see empress ki seeing and governing the entire Yuan empire. I love the scriptwriter and all the casts except El Timor. Very nice story. I really loved it. So much stories to learn. More power korean actors and actresses specially to Empress Ki.

  17. 1017
    jerry Says:

    For those who don’t appreciate the story you better watch cinderella of the ancient time. If you think you are good at making dramas better than empress ki, do it by yourself and prove to us. If not, shut up and watch. Okay. Love you Empress Ki.

    minmin Says:

    Really enjoyed this drama. Ah, ji chang wook! So good looking. In the drama, he was so cute as the wimpy prince. His childish antics brought much laughter and he was fantastic in portraying the character – from wimpy prince to a troubled emperor in his later years. Ha Ji Won played her character very well. The cast was really good. Bravo. The only thing I didn’t like was the way the series ended. It felt rushed and it feels like there is no closure especially watching such a long series (51 episodes) only to have the ending done this way. I don’t mind the sad ending since it is a true story BUT I feel the producers owe it to the loyal fans who watched through all the 51 series with a proper ending. Will definitely re-watch it again.

    The best historical drama ever…
    Jun ji moo and ha ji won were the best..
    For me the best part is whatever happens to their fate, they still have each other..
    When Seungnyang have to be lady ki then be empress ki by staying with emperor of yuan.. But her heart always with wang yoo.. And even have a son with him.. They love each other till ends.. Thanks to the writters, at least giving love to ji chang wook character, at last 2 episodes.. For the whole 49episodes, Seungnyang just hate tahwan, and love wang yoo.. Hehehehe
