  12. 12 : noreenbianca Says:

    Watching episode 1 and we figure that there will be something on Choi Jinhyuk’s character. But why does Tae Hang-Ho’s name not in the cast for his special participation?

  13. 13 : Oyabun Says:

    Ok the Rambo thing and transformation within 2 months was weird but this drama is really entertaining.

  14. 14 : jezzamine jacob Says:

  19. 19 : tigerb Says:

    just started to watch the series, the premises are silly, but worth watching. let’s see how this goes.

  20. 20 : tigerb Says:

    the imperial family members have so many worms/skeletons in their closets! it’s fun to see how these guys try to protect and/or grab the others’ power and influence.

  21. 21 : Stranger Says:

  23. 23 : Lila Says:

    Wow, this drama is displaying outstanding acting for each character, what a great cast, congratulations.

  24. 24 : Carmen Says:

    It looks that in this drama the bad people will win until the end, and I hate that in dramas they should keep the action going on,that Lee Hyuk-his mother and his lover-are the worst(NOW THEY ARE WORKING TOGUETHER), they kill the old grandmother just because she did find out some of the bad things they have done for years, they kill her 3-times, one with drink, the other with some food and the last and most bad and crazy one with her hair pin(grandson)-Emperor OMG poor lady, and now they will blame the Empress for all these-I do not understand why she keep getting more problems for herself! I will do like the guard-wait until the opportunity to get them all getting proof of all their bad things they do and continue doing.

  25. 25 : Fauzi Says:

    This drama verry interesting. Always curious about what happend in the next episode. Many bad people in this drama. I hope good people get happy ending.

  26. 26 : SarangaheLeeHyuk Says:

    I want the empress to end up with the emperor. They have great chemistry!!! Too bad. Shin sung rok’s character is so bad. I dont think the empress will love him again huhu. I hope jang nara and shin sung rok will have a romcom drama after this ❤❤❤❤

  27. 27 : fauzi Says:

    I like lee hyuk with suny, I know he is evil but I hope he repent became good person

  28. 28 : Sh3l Says:

    Me too also like the empress with the emperor … But how come?? Hope they have a very impressing twisted plot

  29. 29 : OK OK OK Says:

    This drama is 48 episodes (half hour each), So its 24 hours for the whole drama.

  30. 30 : Sharon Wolliams Says:

    I haven’t watched a good Korean drama in a long time. This Dram ” The Last Empress.” has me hooked line and sinker.
    Yoo, the emperor is crazy as hell!! He has a lot of childhood trauma and when he gets angry he turns into a monster.
    Crazy is saying Emperor, you crazy!!😳

    Min Yo Rah, is a greedy, conniving, sick,
    Power hungry what rhymes with witch?
    Girl, the Emperor don’t want you. He is playing you, so you can do his dirty work and he can get some cat when he is in the mood.
    Oh Sunny, is a force to be recon with!!
    You go girl!! She is sending shock waves through out the palace with her side kick fat turn buff bodyguard choi.

    The crazy Ari. That little girl needs Dr. Phil stat!!

    I am enjoying this Drama, just on ep 16.

  31. 31 : Ann Says:

    Agree with most comments… such a good Korean drama… My Empress Jang Nara fighting!

  32. 32 : Moon Says:

    The empres’s sister Hel Ro looks “cool” now to me, i like her since ep 31 haha..

  33. 33 : hanna Says:

    interesting drama …. i love it .. cute and sweet actress jang nara !!!

  34. 34 : Reid Says:

    Yura and Sojin??writer nim, are you fan of girl group Girl’s Day??😂😂

  35. 35 : Krissy Says:

    I feel sorry for Pyeha Hyuk, because of his evil mother that’s why he became like that. 😔 Though it is impossible but I like him to Empress more tham Chief Chun they have the chemistry! Wishing also Shin Sungrok got the lead next time not the villain again. He is a very talented actor. The Last Empress figthing! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Thumbs up to all the cast! Such a wonderful kdrama!

  36. 36 : widya Says:

    lee hyuk so cuteeee… hhahahhahha

  37. 37 : peyutnduy Says:

    This interesting drama should be titled “Three Wicked Mothers” instead. All 3 mothers (empress dowager, seo kang hee, min yu ra) mistreat their each son (emperor lee hyuk, princess ari, dong shik.)

  38. 38 : widya Says:

    whenever the emperor try to be nice to jang na ra.. he is so cute…..

  39. 39 : Ceylan Korkmaz Says:

    Is this right drama episodes extended 52 episodes?

  40. 40 : Ananditha Says:

    Why nawang shik still hate hyuk after he knows that kim yoo ra killed his mother first. And hyuk never want to killed nawang shik mother. And why everyone hate hyuk? Hyuk never doing bad things if his past is going well. Im already watching eps 42 btw

  41. 41 : Elizabeth Says:

    Woow..this movie is just so great! And I really hope the Empress ends up with the smart and strong Woo Bin.I so much love the two of them together. Nice match!!

  42. 42 : Yinka Says:

    Yes…its true the Empress and Woo Bin/Na Wang Shik are soo lovely being together. Moreso, the entire movie has a spectacular suspense and intrigues.Love it!!

  43. 43 : Boring Says:

    To be honest, it’s a messy and silly drama. Too many loop holes in the plot, and draggy. Zzzzzzzzz…. Total waste of time.

  44. 44 : Gingercite Says:

    This drama is too long and has terrible plot. It feels like the story is not written well.
    The bad character is always success to do something bad no matter what the circumstances are. And they seem to have many lifes, they are kiled but still live and come back to the palace.
    The emperor character is very stupid, he believes on his mother, his lover, his wife, his guard that make him easyly manipulated by everyone.
    This drama is not recommended.

  45. 45 : Debbie4626 Says:

    Jang Na ra, Choi Jin Hyul and Sung Rok is my favaroute actor.. but in this drama i little bit dissapointed … i agree about Gingercite .. always the bad character win win situation.. make me tired to wait until the end of drama n the princess so jin so anoying.. i lke her in ;the greatest love”. ..Min yu ra. yoon so yi. shin eun gyung.. this 3 actress ..walawei ..make me angry n hot temper when see both of them..greedy and selfish and also annoiying.

    i hope they will stop until 48ep(24ep)..

    Thank you

  46. 46 : nosnoop Says:

    This is one of the best drama in the past few months. Entertaining and very fast paced, always keeps you on your edge.
    Loop holes? You should only keep watching if you accept Na Wang Shik’s transformation into Choi Jin Hyuk 🙂 …. it’s a TV drama for goodness sake. Of course it is not possible, the whole premise of monarchy in Korea is not possible.
    I like all the main characters’ performance, and I am looking forward to the upcoming episodes.

  47. 47 : Not recommend Says:

    Plot is piece of shit. Dragging to make 52 EP. Killed but then miraculously live again. Dumb king dumb mother dumb all characters. Very badly written… Exaggerated acting.

  48. 48 : nosnoop Says:

    Wow, some anti-fan is trying to bad mouth this drama.
    Don’t worry about the bad comments. Check it out yourself.
    I guarantee that you will be hooked. Fantastic drama.

  49. 49 : DeeAn Says:

    It has a rumours, Choi jin hyuk’s appearence will ended on ep 48. He give up the extended episodes (49-52) due to his schedule. T_T
    So it will chun woo bin transform into Big Na wang Shik again????

  50. 50 : Yawn Says:

    Added so many unnecessary characters and useless scenes to fill up the extended 4eps….

  51. 51 : tigerb Says:

    i stopped watching the series when the queen went back to the palace after the ordeal she went through. i thought that was stupid. i read the comments here to make me change my mind, but maybe not. there are better stuff to watch.

  52. 52 : Angry negin Says:

    I started this drama just because of na wang shi. They couldn’t find worse Ending than this for the drama. I was shocked 😳😳😳😳 why min yu ra had such a great ending and she didn’t have any punishment for all the bad things she had done. Empress wasn’t a little bit sad for her son and it was so ridiculous. By the way I didn’t get the role of reporters . They just took photo and listen to every detail of crims but nothing had happened after it and they lived normal life . The first episodes were so good and I waited for a lot of romance between empress and wang shi but nothing happended and also she didn’t care about his death at all😂😳😳

  53. 53 : Kmc Says:

    Stupid ending ever

  54. 54 : lili Says:

    wasted…na wang shi just vanished on a car accident ?? thats so ridiculous …. wasted my time watching this drama …..

  55. 55 : Sh3l Says:

    Entertaining but bad ending, hope they think about making an alternative ending.

  56. 56 : Ananditha Says:

    Ohh my lord!! Its the worse ending ever!! Hyuk dead and na wang sik dead also and the real evil its still alive?!! Hell no! Bad writer ever!

  57. 57 : Lila Says:

    The added 4 eps. didn’t make any favor to this drama, on the contrary. In part bcs of Choi Jin Hyuk’s absence, they tried to adapt the story line somehow but didn’t succeed at all, just made drama less credible that already became and messed up the plot. I felt sorry for the cast who did a great job until the very end.

  58. 58 : Bilu Says:

    Agree woth comment #57. The additional episodes is failed. In fact, it’s just make the story worse.

  59. 59 : Jukbang Says:

    Please stop using the “best drama” of the year ,month, etc . It sounded like a scam already .

  60. 60 : Mei Says:

    Just started watching this and the first two episodes had me wanting to watch more. I won’t be reading the comments here for now to avoid spoilers.. so far so good. Congrats to the cast and staff for a very good production. Fighting!

  61. 61 : Kay Says:

    The Last Empress is complete makjang, and I loved every minute of it! It’s just one crazy thing after another. The cast was amazing with Jang Na Ra, Shin Sung Rok, and Choi Jin Hyuk. One of my favorite dramas of 2019 🙂

  62. 62 : huncifej Says:

    I’m over Part 10. What should I say? I’ve seen such a twisted movie for a long time. Fantastic! I recommend to everyone !
