Ever since it was first announced, the drama has garnered attention for various reasons: some finds it interesting that dramaland is welcoming a new imaginary Imperial Korea drama after quite a while (Princess Hours, anyone?), but the main attraction has the writer to be thankful for. Kim Sun-ok has scored a prime time slot for her drama after making a name for her ultra-makjang weekenders, but prior to that, she was already famous for her makjang works like her widely known Temptation of Wife. Thus, it is no big surprise that The Last Empress or 황후의 품격 (literal title The Empress’ Dignity) scored 7 to 8% ratings for its first week.
I finally picked up this drama after shelving it for some time, and I must say that it is going to be an unforgettable one out of all the shows I’ve seen this year. The online buzz also played a part in helping me to put I Remember You on my watch-list so I thank you, all fellow drama fans for showering it with lots of love ❤ I felt a bit sad after completing the drama though, since it was so good I’m not ready to let it go yet. No, it was exceptional. The plot was clever and the cast made it a joy to watch. If you’ve not caught it, don’t miss it!
Time flies really fast and before I know it, we’re already at the end of November. Luckily I came across a few pictures of School 2013 cast yesterday because I totally forgot about it for a moment! Blame my rusty brain for it! Anyhow, the cast gathered for a press conference yesterday, since the drama is set for its first episode broadcast on December 3rd, which is next Monday. I’m trying to be calm over here but it’s useless; I’m already excited for it! Yes, I’m ready for School 2013!
I won’t be this excited if I’m to talk about my school. Haha 🙂
So-Young’s life is pretty much full nowadays, with problems circulating around her. If it’s not because of So-Jin, it’s caused by her colleagues, particularly Jin-Wook. If I’m someone like her, I don’t know if I can survive my own life. The only good thing? Maybe a cute little brother that act like your big brother, or your hot boss, who has started to pay his attention to you, and has more expressions. Heh.
Sorry for the delay. I don’t know why, I’m still haunted by Na-Ra’s hurtful slaps and words to So-Young. I’m like that, always have some extra sensitivity towards some characters that have too much anger or annoyance in them, and I have to stop watching for a while. This month also marks my new semester beginning, so I have too much things on my head. I think now I have somehow work some things out, so I will start back my recap! 🙂
I have started shipping them : Jin-Wook and So-Young. Although there is a huge gap between their age, that is what makes them so cute : Jin-Wook thinks he is the oppa but So-Young acts like a noona. Everyone is going for noona-dongsaeng relationship nowadays, so why not? It is a trend now. What i am afraid right now is what will be his reaction when he gets to know the truth about her. Will he accept it just like that? Plus, I don’t get to see the chemistry between Seung-Il and So-Young yet(I AM already attracted to him LOL) and I am afraid I will end up shipping So-Young with both of the guys around her.
It’s better to be late than never. Yep, I’m grateful because I’m given the chance to watch the first episode, and here I am! Honestly, I’m hesitating to start watching because I’m afraid I won’t be able to balance it with my studies. But then, after I watch it, I’m totally hooked. I’ve never laughed so much like this since My Girl and this could be my mood lifter for a new week. Plus, Jang Na-Ra is one of my favorite actresses for rom-coms, and there’s Daniel Choi too. So why not?
