“Empress Qi” Episode 46

"Empress Qi" is throwing everything it has at us, but it fails to be truly compelling. There are tears, and death, and convoluted political plots, but none of those things carry any weight. The buildup towards the events in this episode was sorely lacking and made the biggest reveal seem anticlimactic.

This drama has struggled with uneven development since the beginning. Seung-nyang and Wang Yoo's romance was choppily pieced together. The same can be said for Yon Feisu's strange relationship with Wang Yoo. While her romantic feelings were made obvious, his connection to her seemed to end with business. That is, until the show kills Yon Feisu off (in a scene that was absurdly forced and overly dramatic) and has Wang Yoo weep platonic tears for a woman he never seemed to care about before.

Then there is the sorely underused Empress Hudu who bided her time for five years only to impulsively ruin everything in a badly planned murder attempt on Maha

Music insiders predict the industry won’t pick up for another two weeks

Music industry insiders are predicting that artists won"t be holding much promotions until two weeks later.
Many are pointing out that the Sewol incident is turning into a bigger tragedy each day since it sunk on the 16th, and predict that more time is needed for grieving. Music broadcasts are currently canceled, but it will probably not start again this week. During the Cheonam sinking in 2010, the music shows were cancelled for a month.

However, even when the broadcasts start, it will be burdensome to have a comeback right away. One insider related to an artist having a comeback soon said, "Their comeback schedule will be heavily effected by when the music shows start airing again. However, the comeback will probably happen not on the first week, but the week after."
Another comeback insider said, "Time has passed, and it"s not possible to go through the schedule as released through promotions
