Empress Ki
11 February 2014 | by artistcolonyehmSee all my reviews

Excellent drama. Each episode keeps you wanting more. All the actors are amazing in their roles. Great casting. I'm in the US and have to wait for the next episode which is difficult when your left at the point when something major is going to happen. Usually takes two weeks. I've gone back re-watching episodes to keep it fresh in my mind. Keep up the great work. I recommend this drama to all my friends. The drama is a roller coaster of feelings in the pit of your stomach. The way woman were treated but Nyang demands respect and usually wins but the times she loses it reminds you that women were property with no rights. Their families could not protected. Married women were taken from their husbands to be concubines. Suspenseful.
