At first, I was skeptical about it. Wanna know why? IT'S A FRIGGIN' LENGHTY DRAMA! To watch a 51-episode historical drama requires full time and dedication to finish it. And yes, I indeed took the challenge. Thanks to those who convinced me and of course to the helpful reviews as well.

Empress Ki, I must say, is a very compelling, powerful and controversial historical drama. I am always deeply enthralled with every scene with every scene that leaves you in awe and keeps you wanting for more. I suggest you (future watchers) dramathon it and don't skip a single episode nor a single scene.

Story - I love how the story of EK started and ended. Not the usual save-all-the-main-characters-protagonists kind of plot. I love killings, and I think these killings were the most highlighted parts of the drama aside from the intriguing plot. If you know what I mean. I was overwhelmed by it to the extent that I didn't look for any flaw. And mind you, when I'm really enjoying a particular drama, I become LESS OBJECTIVE. (You might disagree with me on this, but it's actually true.) It only means that I am satisfied about it. There was just one thing though that I got confused about. So if ever you happen to read this one and have watched the drama already, my profile is waiting for your comment to ask me what was it about. But, nevertheless, it was an EXCEPTIONAL sageuk. One thing that I loved as well was the turn of events. They were really unpredictable. I like unpredictable things.

Acting/ Cast: Every actor in this drama did a stellar job in portraying each character. I have not seen any actor acting with an expressionless face nor overrated acting. Again, if you know what I mean. Ha Ji Won's acting here was outstanding. She has that MAJESTIC BEAUTY. Joo Jin Mo did great as well. Just like how much he was great in A Frozen Flower. I mean, his acting. LOL

Special Mentions:
Ji Chang Wook - My first time seeing him in a drama. He did a great job in acting esp in crying scenes. He was the best. Actually voted for him in the MDL 2014 poll for best actor.

Baek Jin Hee - portrayed the Tanasiri character very convincingly. I hold her dearly to my heart. *whispers* I have a girl-crush on her. Hihihi ^^

Jin Yi Han / Tal Tal is a bonus here.

Lee Mun Shik / Bang - ahjussi, I will never forget how well you played in Iljimae and also here in EK. For the comedic parts, I salute you.

Jun Gook Hwan / El Temur - I never hated him even though how ruthless he was.

I loved all the villains in this sageuk except for one. His name is Yom. Yom the Scum.

Music - OST overall is pretty brilliant. Gosh, the feels... I especially liked Xia's I Love You.

Given the chance that I'd want to watch this again, I WOULD.

And finally, watching EK is an adventure which will be with me forever. It felt surreal when I finished it. I can't even start a new drama after watching it. No drama can surpass the roller coaster ride of emotions I felt in this drama.

P.S: Don't get surprised by its long episodes, it's totally worth watching!

Curiosity... curiosity led me to watch this movie. Wondering why does everybody give it the highest rating? There's no question about the story because for me, it was the best plus it is humorous and romantic at the same time. Well, regarding about the characters, I was quite unaware of them except for that Manager Jang who is also a North Korean soldier in the K2H. Who are these lead characters? I first researched about them. Woah, the main guy is 42y/o??? How come he's gotten so so HOT!!! HAHAHA. As for the lead girl, never really knew her. So I gave it a try.
Likes:

1. CSW's perfect delivery of lines
2. Funny acts
3. OSTs (totally love Du Geun2x)
4. the potato
5. Dingdong kid
6. CSW's extremely HOOOOOOT body!
7. plot
8. ending message of CSW (my first time to watch a drama with an ending msg from one of the characters)
9. sneakers
10. their love for each other

Dislikes:





NONE!!!!!!!!!




SCORE: 10/10

Just saw this movie through those recs that I have read. Well, as a viewer and a Kdrama-movie addict, I got curious and told myself "why not give it a try." Aside from the recs I read, I also learned that this movie(recent movie as rated) is on the number 3 spot. I just got more curious about it. So I scrolled my mouse looked for it to watch. As I was watching it, I was already hooked with the little girl's acting skills,(cried most of the time because of her). She really did a superb acting,just so natural. Also credits to Won Bin, I thought he was so effortless when he cried and act just like a pawnshop owner who was a former agent. That's why I gave the cast a perfect 10! Next is the story, well, I really thought that it was unique combined with action, love and friendship. It was my first time to watch this kind of movie so I was impressed a lot! I only gave 8 to the music coz to tell you honestly I forgot already the OSTs maybe they weren't remarkable. Next is the rewatch value, I can't be able to watch it again coz of too much torturing scenes and unlikeable scenes (which are totally gross). And I suggest you,viewers, to watch this movie coz it's a tearjerking one and inspirational at the same time.

Indeed! A great story combined with real acting skills by the actors. I can't even tell a single thing on how to describe the whole movie... Fantastic?Heartwarming?Tearjerker? Ommo, help me! hehehe. Well, I decided to watch it wasn't recommended but it was indeed ranked one (recent movie as rated). I read the plot summary first, then told myself" ah, so this movie is about friendship" I scrolled my mouse and looked for the website that has it. Then, I saw it. 7 parts. At first, I thought I was a bit confused with the story, maybe because that's JUST the beginning of the story (actually, that's my weakness) but then I told myself again " what if I'll just drop this down"( well that's really like me, if I didn't like the start of every drama or movie, i just, well... drop them). But then, I asked myself" Are you sure? Remember this movie is ranked ONE. So, as I decided to continue watching it, I realized that this movie really has it all! OSTs, the actors, plot, and I will not have a second thought of watching it again, because for me it is very inspiring. Then, I told myself" I hope we(friends) will not be able to experience this"( hardships) but then, if no one is perfect, so is the friendship that I have with my friends right? We do have conflicts with our friends but we come to solve and face them with the help of one another. That's what I've learned. And, uhm,.. ahem. I never thought Kang Sora and Shi Woo would be there.haha Dream High2 and Love Rain. The production got the bestest of the best. All of them did a great job. They deserve a round of applause! Clap!clap!clap!
p.s if you plan to watch Sunny, then prepare a box full of tissue. (based from experience) ;) This is Kris now signing off. Annyeong!

I'm cw this drama and so far it's satisfying already... What a magnificent job! How did they come up with such a genius masterpiece! I won't regret watching the first episode of it instead, I'll watch it til the very end.(hope it's not a tragic one):( wait, think positive! hehe...... What I love about it is that, this dram has it all, name it, romance, comedy, tragedy even history. haha... Outstanding because it's my first time to watch such drama, and it didn't disappoint me. Although the OST I know is that of Tiffany's IMYLC I still like it and you know, got LSS. Even if it was the only song I know about this drama, for me it's very remarkable. Great acting skills is also shown in this drama. I commend Lee Yoon's acting. It is superb and high-class! Very versatile. So far, it's doing great. Looking forward to the next 8 episodes.
