It sure took me a long time before writing up this post. I was so excited for Empress Ki, and I’m glad to say that I’m happy with the first two episodes 🙂
I know that this drama is not exactly based on the real historical story or characters. The names might be the same, but the portrayal of the characters doesn’t really match history. I don’t really care because I just have to pretend it’s a fictional king, or etc. It’s a drama after all.
The pace of the show is lightning fast for the first two episodes, and I like what I’m seeing. Ha Ji Won is awesome as always, and so is Joo Jin Mo. Ji Chang Wook appeared in the last few minutes of Episode 2, and maybe, just maybe he can work out the role well. I’m not really fond of him, and the news of him being cast was sort of a disappointment for me since Ha Ji Won and Joo Jin Mo are big names.
However, in those few minutes itself, it seems like he might be okay. We’ll have to wait and see. Anyway, I can’t wait for Joo Jin Mo to find out that Ha Ji Won is actually a girl 🙂
Oh. On a side note, Empress Ki has some side jokes as well, which I didn’t really expect. Nice one, drama 🙂
