“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

MBC “Empress Qi” on schedule

While all dramas and shows have been put on hold due to the Sewol ferry tragedy, the regular track is slowly coming back. MBC drama "Empress Qi" will resume broadcast on the 21st.

MBC claimed that regular shows will slowly find their regular places soon. "Shining Romance" and "Mother's Garden" will also go on air as usual.

MBC said, "Although regular shows are being broadcasted, we will connect to news immediately if there is progress in search and rescue".

MBC has put a hold on all broadcasting ever since the accident in Jindo. All weekend entertainment was put on hold as well.

Nam Sang Mi to Join Lee Jun Ki in “The Joseon Shooter”

Actress Nam Sang Mi will be joining Lee Jun Ki in the new historical romance action drama, “The Joseon Shooter.” She will be playing the role of Jung Soo In.

The actress said, “In the drama, Jung Soo In initially seems very sheltered like a plant in a greenhouse, but in reality she has a lot of curiosity and is not afraid of adventure. I really felt the merits of this character in that she doesn’t get caught up in the Joseon era’s standards for women and her strong will in working towards a new world.”

“The Joseon Shooter” is the story of Joseon’s last swordsman who grows to become the era’s hero, played by Lee Jun Ki. This will be Nam Sang Mi and Lee Jun Ki’s second time working together, after the 2007 action-romance drama, “Time Between Dog and Wolf

40-year old Kim Hee-ae vs. 39-year old Uhm Jung-hwa

JTBC "Secret Love Affair" and tvN "A Witch's Love" are two age-gap romance dramas that started off at the same time.

Kim Hee-ae is a successful career woman in her forties and Uhm Jung-hwa is a 39-year old reporter. Kim Hee-ae and Uhm Jung-hwa are so different in their dramas, it's hard to believe they are only one year apart. They are both victims of age-gap romance and they show how different it can be according to genre. "Secret Love Affair" looks into the deepest parts of the higher class society, while "A Witch's Love" is a lighter romance comedy.

"Oh Hye-won, a career woman in her 40s, exhausted from everyday life".

Oh Hye-won is the assistant minister at the Seo Han Arts Foundation. She is part of the high income family who makes over 100 million won per year; however, she's not as fancy as everyone thinks her to be

Difference between ‘Secret Love Affair’ & ‘Witch’s Romance’


Cable channel JTBC"s "Secret Love Affair" starring actor Yoo Ah In and actress Kim Hee Ae is probably one of the most popular dramas these days. When "Secret Love Affair" aired ten episodes, cable channel tvN"s "Witch"s Romance" premiered, which resembled and did not resemble JTBC"s "Secret Love Affair."

Cable channel tvN"s "Witch"s Romance" is based on the drama "Queen Pae Gyun," a Taiwanese drama that aired in 2009. The first two episodes of the cable channel tvN"s "Witch"s Romance" is, however, not doing so well

The Current Crop of K-Dramas Are Aberrations – Why K-Drama Is Building On A Bubble

What the Korean media calls "Genre Dramas" are those dramas that are not based on romance - horror, action, mystery, and the like. K-Dramas are popular both nationally and internationally for their romantic comedies and stories about complicated love lines. The current crop of K-Dramas is breaking away from this pattern amid much press fanfare. In fact, dramas such as "Three Days," "God"s Gift - 14 Days," "Golden Cross," and "Gap Dong" are being hyped everyday by different media outlets. They are competing directly against other traditional romance-based K-Dramas.
