I need additional time to have a life outside k-dramas.
I should have gone to the airport. and gold coast. I should but I didn’t. IT’S MY LOSS! total loss T.T
In other non-OUAT related news….
This is me sinking and crying under the table while watching episode 22/23/24 of Empress Ki…
Yep it happened. The episodes that I’ve been dreading that felt like the mother-load of all feels…sunk my poor Wang-Yu and SungNyang ship and is now floating on a raft and holding on to dear life. I had an inkling that the happy engagement moment Wang-Yu and SungNyang experienced would not last. But boy did it felt like a kick in the pants by how fast it occurred. I predict I’m gonna need a lot of booze to get me through this series now that my beloved Wang-Yu and SungNyang are apart (for what seems to be) a long time from here on out.
But their relationship is not easily severed, not yet anyways… There is still another tie between their characters to make sure they are still connected with each other. Yeah you guess it, their child.
Am I the only one who wants to pinch and squish Wang-Yu Jr.’s face??? He just too adorable!
I was right about the baby prediction I made in my last post (here). Always in true kdrama fashion whenever a girl and guy “sleep” together, it makes way for future baby melodrama. This makes me curious how they will handle Wang-Yu and SungNyang’s “love child” now that Wang-Yu was/ and is still oblivious to SungNyang’s pregnancy, only thinking that she died at the hands of El Temur’s children.
*Sobbing right along with you* T_T
At the same time SungNyang tragically thinks her newborn son is dead having watched him accidentally fall over a cliff with a solider while trying to evade her enemies.
Meanwhile Wang-Yu Jr. is miraculously found alive and ends up in the hands of the Evil Empress who is passing him off as her newborn son, the crown prince of Yuan, to hide her infertility problem.
**Pants breath** Didn’t I tell you this was kdrama???
The only consolations I have now is that SungNyang will go back and kick El Temur and his spoiled bratty childern in the rear.
***SungNyang giving the evil eye…***
And that I have a new crackship, surprisingly of SungNyang and TalTal of all people. You remember him, the straight face intellectual ass that thinks he’s too clever for anyone? SungNyang was the first person that actually made him crack a smile in all of 24 episodes. They look deviously cute together. I can’t wait to watch them scheme and plot to wipe out El Temur’s clan in the palace.
Yes I ship them!
And sorry I’m still not on board with Tahwan and SungNyang ship. I found him even more pathetic, curled up in a fetal position upon hearing SungNyang’s supposed “death”.
Yeah I know, he was totally devastated, but he cries as if he’s crying for his mother not his love and he still proceeded to do absolutely nothing to make the situation better. (Although I found his scene wanting to strangle Tanashri in her sleep, hilarious and wishing he actually went through with it.)
***YES! DO IT!***
SN x TH shippers probably want to strangle me for saying that but just know that I totally loved him in the beginning. Like when he took action in trying to evade getting murdered in the camp by feigning sick and sneaking away in a solider’s uniform. (This was before he even met SungNyang. So I know he capable without SungNyang’s help.) Or trying to get medicine for a sick/wounded SungNyang. Maybe I’m just more inclined to a men who takes action like Wang-Yu. Even though Wang-Yu was devastated he proceeded to actually do something and take revenge on the people who “killed” SungNyang. I think that’s why SungNyang and Wang-Yu are so compatible with each other because at that moment SungNyang proceeded to do the same thing to the people who wronged her. Her only chance was to gain power by becoming Tahwan’s concubine then empress and squash them like a bug. Unfortunately this act sacrifices Wang-Yu and SungNyang’s future together. Wang-Yu had no idea SungNyang was alive and SungNyang was too devastated in seeing her friends murdered, her baby dead and hearing Wang-Yu’s forced arranged marriage to El Temur’s clan to regain his throne. Oh how sometimes I wish these two weren’t so alike but then again I wouldn’t ship them as hard as I do.
I still have a small bit of hope that Wang-Yu and SungNyang will end up together because of this very romantic flashback scene (before all hell broke loose) between them and their promise to each other to stay by each others side whether in life or in death. I feel it’s a foreshadowing of the show’s ending. However sad it is I’m glad that they showed it. Wang-Yu and SungNyang truly belong with each other. No other couple I’ve seen so far have as much devotion as these two have for each other.
Wang-Yu: “I wish for us to spend the rest of our lives together. To die at the same moment, and be together forever…
SungNyang: “Mine’s too…”
SungNyang: “Yes, in life and in death, together forever…”
***Cue me sobbing like a baby…That was freakin beautiful…***
It makes this scene in Episode 1’s flashforward sequence of SungNyang’s and Wang-Yu’s sad secret exchange during SungNyang’s marriage to Tawhan all the more heartbreaking, now that we know what transpired…
Since SungNyang and Wang-Yu are separated for god knows how long, I guess I’ll be in it for the long haul with lots of drinks!
But from time to time I’ll take a moment to reflect on the times SungNyang and Wang-Yu had with each other. I only pray that there would be some good moments between them in the future as they are bound to meet again.

THESE SUMMED UP MY FEELS. THANK YOU VERY MUCH! uri OTP :(
Another off-topic from OUAT.
I’ve been following other shows while trying to kill time during OUAT’s 3 month hiatus (This is the sole reason I’ve survived thus far without OUAT). I’ve recently became immersed with Empress Ki, a Korean historical drama (with historical being loosely stated) that has gotten me addicted to it’s story, romance, drama, action, and even a bit of comedy. It’s easily one of the better asian soaps I’ve seen in a while, since Jumong. And due to my “romance at heart” type personality I’ve become a hard-core shipper of protagonist Wang-Yu and SungNyang. Recent developments of their relationship lead me jumping up and down like a little school girl, which is why I’m bursting to post some thoughts and feelings with fellow Empress Ki- viewers.
If you haven’t watched it and don’t have a clue what I’m talking about I highly recommend watching the first episode to see if it gains your interest. (Link)
Admittedly I personally feel if there’s a love triangle incorporated into the storyline, Asian soaps usually handle it pretty well. To be fair Asian soaps are not procedural like US shows. They usually have a pre-determined number of episodes to air and a set storyline that you have to follow. If you miss one episode it’s hard to follow subsequent episodes after, but it helps focus more on consistent character development. As with Empress Ki I do feel the main heroine Sungnyang has a chance with either love interest that is present in the story. In this case it’s Wang-Yu - King of Goryeo (aka Korea) and Tahwan - Emperor of Yuan (aka China).
This girl has a hard decision to make…
Why I’ve chosen to fall in love with Wang-Yu and SungNyang? Of course them pining for each other isn’t the only reason I love them, it’s because there’s an equal partnership between these two. They lend each other strength instead of it solely being from one party.
They’ve saved each other numerous times…
SungNyang pushing Wang-Yu away from an arrow that nearly kills him…
SungNyang dragging an injured/unconscious Wang-Yu, trying to keep up with the rest of the party so as not to be killed for slowing down the group.
Wang-Yu saving SungNyang from being raped by Tangqishi
Wang-Yu rescuing SungNyang from being tortured to death by Tangqishi
They’re equally badass in their own right…
YEP, that’s one tough ninja lady…
They tell each other to survive no matter what…
"You must also stay alive and wait for me. This is an order, SungNyang. Do you understand?" ~ Wang-Yu being dragged off to war and enslavment. Heart wrenching scene T_T…
Their Tragic love story…
I realize I’m sailing a sinking ship because we all know from the first 5 minutes of episode 1 this happens…
SungNyang marrying Tahwan in a flash-forward sequence.
But you cannot deny the writer’s amazing way of making you fall in love with SungNyang and Wang-Yu anyway. Through all their trials and obstacles of being apart, we finally get pay off, however brief it is…
His sweet marriage proposal to her…
Her saying YES!…
And the epic kiss!
THIS WAS ME WHILE I WATCHED THAT SCENE…
PLUS THE SHOCKER….
The morning after…SAY WHAT NOW?!?!?!?
Now I’m wondering if they’re going to put some baby drama in the mix. I’m a little apprehensive about baby story-lines, since they can make or break the story depending on how it’s handled but it seems like they’re heading in that direction. You don’t put a couple in bed together just for shits and giggles. As far as Asian drama goes they definitely “slept” together. And usually the girl gets knocked up after just one night.
That’s not to say I’m completely against SungNyang getting together with Tahwan. But I believe there’s still a looong way to go in that regard. Sure the baby emperor is cute as a button and they have adorable scenes together but I’m not feeling the equal partnership, at least not yet. He still very much thinks of SungNyang as a possession he has to have rather then as a person.Tahwan’s idea of taking care of her, reminds me of how someone takes care of a puppy. As in, you love your puppy and think you know what the puppy wants but you don’t really know since it can’t speak to you. SungNyang and Tahwan are on different wave lengths right now. Not trying to be harsh because I’m sure it will change in the future. The baby emperor may yet grow to be a man worthy of SungNyang, but I have a feeling I’m going down with SungNyang x Wang-Yu ship till the very end. Unless Wang-Yu does something so incredibly stupid to SungNyang that can’t be forgiven, but it would feel a bit out of character for him after everything they’ve endured for the past 20 episodes.I just laugh whenever I see the emperor try to rub two brain cells together and wonder why SungNyang doesn’t fall head over heels in love with him. He made her a maid in his palace and let her clean his feet after all!Just a tip to all men out there. Making your crush clean your ears and wash your feet is not the best way to woo a woman, no matter how much you day-dream it to be. Go get your mommy to do that.Also due to the fact that Tahwan was willing and able to use a conspiracy plot to try and kill Wang-Yu and get him out of the way just so he can have SungNyang, left a bad taste in my mouth. Not cool dude, not cool. I don’t care how cute you are. That’s not the best way to win the girl either.For all of the Tahwan’s cute moments with SungNyang. Wang-Yu also has his adorkable moments too.
Wang-Yu’s first schoolboy crush moment…but it also lead to question his sexual preferences for a while…(GIF Source)
Wang-Yu dressing to impress SungNyang….meanwhile…SungNyang nervously prettifying herself for Wang-Yu for their “almost” first date. In true drama fashion something prevents them from meeting.(GIF Source)
Gotta love a guy that knows his woman’s taste in hair pins…So all in all however brief SungNyang and Wang-Yu’s relationship is before something else happens to tear them apart again, I will savor every moment!All GIFs are not mine, if you see yours, feel free to let me know and I’ll credit you.-Lunatiger
Hooray to Wang Yu Ship All The Way~~~~
So I finished this last nite, and for the record I am soo team Jung Eum-Ji Hoon and their storyline was the thing that kept me engaged episodes by episodes besides the other comedic-purpose side stories. But the ending WHAT??????
1) I started this show for light COMEDY. It served the purpose throughout. Just not in the last episode.
2) WHAT WAS THAT? OMO the ending was downright terrible. I hated the fact that the last episode was soooooo stupidly Se-Kyung centralised. And do we have to make it so tragic???
I am so glad I didn’t read any recaps on EK this week (luckily I had a busy week or else I would have). And the fact that both eng-subbed episodes (19 and 20) were out together made watching even better.
Wang Yu fools EVERYONE. That was epic. He went to El-temmur then Empress Dowager, even…
I so know RIGHT?!!!! I MEAN, HOW AWESOME THE WAY HE PROPOSED DWQNIWQMOFMOQMWEFMR HE ASKED HER TO BE HIS QUEEN AND i just can’t kewcnejwkqfnknqfn my feels are killing me ldkw
and then and then… when they talked and he now knows just exactly for how long they’ve actually know each other and then he was so sweet to her and that kiss in the forehead and she slept on his arm
I just can’t
my heart hurts because she’ll wind up marrying baby emperor but right now I’m not thinking about that I just know that she’s now the queen to be LOL IDK
Right right right soooo rigghhhhttttttttt!
