Splendid Politics (Hwajung) : Episode 6

Hearts are broken, lives are sacrificed, and misunderstandings abound between the characters. Some things are unavoidable, especially when everyone prefers lies over truths, with the conviction that lying will protect what is dearest to them. Be it Gwanghae or Queen Inmok, both of them are trying to provide protection to their possessions but in the end, they will have to lose something in return of the so-called protection.

Splendid Politics (Hwajung) : Episode 4

Desperation runs high behind the palace walls and everyone is scrambling to find the safest ground to stand on. Allies are made, loyalty gets tested, and ties are broken left and right because of insecurities.

Splendid Politics (Hwajung) : Episode 3

Five years have passed since the last episode and Gwanghae is surviving the court without much support from his own ministers.

I guess the bloodbath will come our way soon, and the drama is indeed planning to tear my heart by hinting of the impending tragedy while showing how much the half-siblings adored each other.
