POV DISCUSSION: Empress Ki Episode 19 & 20


It’s as though the drama gods heard our prayers. Hahahaha. Empress Ki started to pick up again, and things slowly start to move on. It took a long time before we arrived here, and I’m just happy they did it before I completely lost interest.

Everyone is slowly preparing their cards, and we also get to peek in a little into Seungnyang’s feelings about Ta Hwan. I’m so glad that everybody is back on track, and where they are all supposed to be. Seungnyang is back to her normal self, and so is Wang Yoo. Ta Hwan finally starts to change.

It’s a great progress overall, because I was wondering for the past weeks, when are we ever getting into the plot. I don’t do recaps for this – but I just did a short, super short discussion on the loveline.

Is Seungnyang possibly falling for Ta Hwan as well? We all knows she loves Wang Yoo, but I think she has feelings for Ta Hwan as well. I love this twist – and I hope she does has feelings for him. At least a little. I’m not saying that I don’t want her to love Wang Yoo. I just want her to have both men in her heart, because I think it makes sense.

  1. The one thing I like about the development of the love stories for all of them is that it is believable. We can totally see WHY Wang Yu love Nyang. And I do believe her explanation of WHY she loves him. He didn’t know she was the girl he saved, but she knew all along that he was the prince who saved her as a child.

    I also like Ta Hwan’s explanation to her… that she was the first one he saw when he broke out of his shell. What I found really beautiful about his love for her is that it is so pure. I didn’t mind that she loves Wang Yu. All he wants is a little space in her heart. He just want her to make some room for him. He is willing to accept her in any way, shape and form. She is his everything. When he is happy, he wants her. When he is scared and hurt, he wants her.

  2. The bedroom scene.

    I was a little shock at first. At first, I wonder if a man and woman in bed means the same in the Korean culture as in my culture. And then I saw the outrage in other reviews and I realize that it does.

    I personally don’t mind the fact that Wang Yu got her virginity. We know that she will marry Ta Hwan. I would be really sad if Wang Yu love her all for nothing. To me, everything in this drama have been perfect so far. I have enjoyed all the characters, their development and their growth.

    I also like that fact that El Temar’s eldest son is head over heels in love with Nyang.
