Beanie level: Chaebol’s poor doppelganger

An Empress’s Dignity episode 15:

We don’t really get that much action or comedy this episode but we got some secrets spilled which will drive the plot better in the next couple of episodes (we still have 8 hours left with this show)

1. Princess So-jin smarting up and protecting Woo-bin from evil mum was a surprising but amazing development (she will probably fall to the good side). She is easily becoming one of my favorite characters on this show and I can honestly watch her and Hel-ro on my screen for hours and still enjoy every second of it. Girly needs to have someone who truly loves her soon. She deserves it.
2. Hyuk’s growth as a person and as a character was amazing. SSR is doing a great job in making us like a very unlikable character. Not a fan of him forcing Sunny to sleep with him though. That’s assault you piece of shit.
3. If what Sunny did to Ari was abuse then my mom has been abusing me (that’s discipline young parents) as a child for a looooong time. I also don’t like Kang-hee.
4. Still not a fan of Sunny-WooBin ship
5. Min Yu-ra is probably coming back to get her revenge on everyone. This should be fun.
6. Hel-ro and Yoon are the cutest
7. I cry when Jang Na-ra cries
8. Hyuk didn’t break anything this episode as far as I remember but he dumped some appliances and scratched some so Sunny will go and get them from the palace junkyard as she will not accept anything from him 🤣

An Empress’s Dignity episode 15:

I actually forgot to post my thoughts on episode 14. I am a mess like this show 😂

1. Sunny and Hyuk’s bickering is GOLD. Thank you, Sunny, for not swooning over Hyuk and being the strong independent woman that you are.
2. Hyuk’s instant coffee arc is over but we got the bunny Hyuk arc and I have no complaints and he is feeling empathy and the need to protect Sunny from crazy mom. I know he is not a good person but I love him.
3. Chun Woo-bin is dumb sometimes (I get it you need to cry but that’s too loud and you are revealing yourself too much) but he still has the upper hand because everyone on the Imperial family trusts him
4. The romance arc is kicking in but I am not a fan of Sun-Bin ship tbh but I ship the actors
5. I am not a bomb expert but I am pretty sure that’s not how bombs work but this is TLE and it requires you to turn your brain off
6. Sunny please uncover the secret of the Island faster and claim your inheritance
7. Hyuk didn’t break anything this episode. That is already 2 hours of not breaking anything (he did not break anything last ep). Talk about character development.

I really appreciate Sunny not swooning for Hyuk (unlike me) because we wouldn’t get badass scenes like this where she beats the shit out of the Emperor if not for that:

    I really wish we would get a director’s cut with all the romcom scenes to make it an alternate romcom version. SSR is so cute in these scenes you almost forget his character is irredeemable!

    When that witch of a mother went after Sunny’s late mother, I believe the words I used were, ‘Oh, no you didn’t’.

    When a psychopath like Hyuk is sympathetic, you know you crossed a line.

      Hyuk could have been a good person (look at the crown prince!) if only he didn’t have that witch of a mother

        but Yoon has the same mother, no? I think he (Yoon) just dodged whatever 99% evil genes his family has.

        2

          But Yoon is smart and quick on the uptake.

          Hyuk is not bright, like, at all. Calling him a idiot is not an exaggeration.

          His father played a major role in hyuk’s character too: criticism, favortisim and physical scolding.

      I think it’s less sympathy but more “ooooh my mom hates you and that makes you so hot” kind of thing.

      We should learn from Sunny. Maybe sing Arirang Arirang and become a master at jegi?

      1

      If the two men here weren’t going around killing people willy nilly, I would encourage Sunny to be open to a polyamorous situation. However, the emperor and his “guard” don’t seem to do relationships real well. No matter how lovely they look, and how fun the bickering is, the potential for torture and death seems a bit high.

      5

        Hey, no judgement here. Who hadn’t been in one or two torturous relationships in the past with laments like “please just kill me now”?

        0

        In the AU romcom version the torture is just teasing/foreplay and the death is just climax (both the story kind and the other kind :D)

      It still has the dark murderous makjang element but you can just skip those tbh and enjoy the show as a comedy 🤣

An Empress’s Dignity episode 13:

The Emperor had me in stitches this episode. Please cast Shin Sung-rok in a romcom next time 😂

1. Oh Sunny is an instant coffee enthusiast and I LOVE HER
2. Tbh I am not sure if the Emperor is jealous towards Sunny or Woo-bin
3. Show proves that a person is not dead until his/her dead body is shown
4. The Emperor does not break his record of breaking something EVERY SINGLE EPISODE
5. I LOVE SHIN SUNG-ROK
6. Probably the funniest episode

      As a child, he was my favorite Dad in Three Dads One Mom so I was really shocked when I saw him again in villainy roles in Liar Game and My Love From Another Star (which are both great btw!)

        Oh my gosh, I do remember him in Love from Another Star. He is a good villian, but he is also showing a nice comedic side here too.

        I tried 3 dads 1 mom, I couldn’t do it. It has not aged well.

        2
        1

          I watched and enjoyed 3 Dads 1 Mom when I was still young enough so it has a soft spot on my heart. My fave villain role of SSR is probably his Kang Do-young in Liar Game.

    He was in a rom-com as 2nd lead (Trot Lovers) and I kept expecting him to kill someone.

      The only romcom I’ve watched with him in it is Three Dads One Mom and I loved him there. Didn’t really expect him to get villainy and cray cray roles before. HAHA

I’m so glad I ended 2018 with Just Dance!

This drama made me laugh, cry, swoon, and reminisce my youth. Park Se-wan’s portrayal of Kim Si-eun was great and I relate to her so much because she reminded me a lot of myself back in high school. I really love how the drama gave us a glimpse on the background and struggles of each girl in the Dance Sports Club, which made me love them more. Also, Jang Dong-yoon’s character, SeungShine, was refreshing to see in Dramaland!

KBS is really great at making youth dramas and I hope they’ll be able to make another gem like Just Dance this 2019.

An Empress’s Dignity episode 12:

This is a whole episode dedicated to #MinYuraIsOverParty😂

1. Oh Sunny being sassy and frank. What a legend. WE STAN.
2. Finally, Sunny and Woo-bin are teaming up together to take down the baddies and I love it.
3. Emperor vs Princess: Who will win Woo-bin’s heart part 2
4. The princess might be the funniest character in this show
5. Is writer-nim shipping Hel-ro and Yi-yoon because I am too
6. The Emperor surely missed killing someone that he’s at it again
7. If episode 11 was the calm for Min Yu-ra, episode 12 is the storm for her (maybe girly will come back stronger and have her revenge too idk it’s still too early to lose her)
8. Hyuk slowly falling for Sunny’s charms is so funny lmao

Writer-nim is an expert at using cliches and then twisting them. Imagine this show without the makjang, killing sprees, and craziness, maybe the characters would live in a normal contract marriage drama unlike now 😂

    Been a long time since I saw this cliched scene but I enjoyed it. I am now all aboard this ship.

    But then Hel-ro does this! HAHA

    Also I feel like if this was another drama it would have been equally awesome seeing a non-murderous non-cheating Hyuk falling for Sunny. Too bad he likes murders more than love o_O

    It makes me wonder if the child survived and is Ari. I mean, do we really know for sure the Nanny gave birth. We know that she and the Late Empress were tight all the way back to school days, which means she was brought into the court. *sits ala The Thinker*

    And Hyuk just sucks at a reading the room. He already had someone in his life that just wanted to be loved by him and give it in return but he turned his nose down at it. Dude, your daughter was right there, all this time.
