Ha Ji Won is amazing in this drama, her performance alone makes it worth watching, but luckily the story and characters are great too.:D (and I usually don't like historical dramas that much)

I would just like to point out some interesting historical inaccuracies for this drama. 

Empress Ki and the King of Goryeo Wang Yoo likely never met. 

King Wang Yoo was known to be a rather irresponsible ruler, with a licentious lifestyle that involved abducting and raping women.

Too bad it's not popular with the international audience, which is why subbing is slower than usual. It's such a good drama, though.

The Heirs is boring so I decided to give this drama a try and it just exceeded my expectation. The plot, the acting, the music, everything about this drama is perfect ㅠㅠ I'm not that into historical dramas but this is definitely one of those few exceptions. If the upcoming episodes are of high quality as the first 6 episodes, this drama wil easily be one of the best dramas of 2013 (or 2014). It's great that there are 50 episodes to watch but to think we're not gonna see the final episode until April next year ㅠㅠ  I prefer Tahwan-Seung Nyang to the supposed main lead though

This drama is pretty awesome so far.
It's quite fast paced for a drama that is going to have 50 episodes so that's good.
The acting , cast,sets and music are superb and I honestly can't wait to see more.The only bad thing is the slow subbing T.T

Ha Ji Won Piggy Back 'Empress Ki' Highest Rating at 16.3%

ha-ji-won-piggy-back-empress-ki-highest-

 

"Empress Ki" is continuing to rise in ratings with the efforts of Ha Ji Won.  In addition, it solidified its place in first place of Monday/Tuesday dramas breaking its own record.

According to Neilsen Company, a ratings company, on November 12th, MBC Monday/Tuesday drama "Empress Ki" rated 16.3% nationally.

 

This is 1.8% higher than what the episode rated last time at 14.5%.  It rated the highest as it got the most popular.  At this rate, it seems like it'll be possible to go over the 20% ratings.

I haven't watched ep 6 yet, I hope I have the time soon, because I really wanna know how the story goes on. it's defenitely A LOT better than the heirs, which I'm only watching for Park Shin Hye.

The opening of the drama is really intriguing at this point. I mean she sheds tears after seeing Wang Yoo, doesn't that mean she still loves the king but why does she agree to become the empress ? The only possibility I can't think of is that she wants to take revenge on Tahwan and kill him later. That would be against the history right ? I would personally get hurt so much if the drama ends up like that *sigh* the production team must not expect the Seung Nyang-Tahwan couple to be this loved lol I see many people favour this pairing lol

 

and luckily here in my country i actually get the sub for the drama just 1 day after the airing date in my own language. but that also makes the waiting time for the next episode longer  :cry: I'm dying for episode 9  :cry:
