Ooooooo. Ahhhhhhhh. Strong female lead! Interesting start. It was a bit muddy showing us Seung Nyang becoming Empress Ki, but once that's over with you fall into her youth and growing up. I liked this so much.
Especially the "twist". I really hoped that Seung Nyang was playing like that. For the sake of spoilers I won't really go into it.
Anywho, I love this setup. It's a very sophisticated gender bender. read moreNot to mention revenge thus far. The visuals are amazing and the wardrobes! One of the strongest opening epiosdes I've had the pleasure of watching. Truly beyond impressed here.
Though this is a ton of building here, the writing doesn't have too much time develop the characters. What I've seen so far I like. The message of the world being cruel to females is so true, especially in any society's historical times. Woman got the short of end of the stick always.
wow, that was a very action-packed episode. This is probably the first drama that made me feel like I want to cry in the first 5 minutes of the first episode. I hope it won't be too heartbreaking. But i think there will be a heart-wrenching love triangle. omo ..
