Aww! Well, he has a valid reason for keeping her around. Maybe if he told her, she would actually stop hating him just a little. I hope she finds out so she can warm up to him a little.
Poor guy. He asked and boy, did she deliver.
I CALLED IT.
It’s kind of cute (but kind of awkward and weird) that Tangqishi fell for her. I guess with a father like El Temur, the boy could use some love in his life. Unfortunately for him that love ain’t gonna come from Seungnyang. Ever.
THIS WAS SO CUTE.
I wish she could love him; they’d be so adorable together!
This man’s face.
Ah, I like Seungnyang and Wang Yu but with this baby emperor’s puppy dog face, how can I not root for him?!
Conflict within me.
He’s so awkward when he’s talking to a mother.
Adorable man, this Kim Woo Bin.
And he effectively just broke his own heart.
Young Do bby ❤️ ;-;
I swear, this scene was one of the saddest in this drama. It’s the first time since Young Do has been treated like a son in a while and it’s Eun Sang’s mother. Those two facts combined - ah, Choi Young Do ❤️
Definitely my favourite character in Heirs.
If it’s one thing about Empress Ki I really love (besides the obvious eye candy), it’s Seungnyang.
She’s strong and independent. How many female leads act as men and actually pull it off? I mean, she makes a pretty boy but she can fight and shoot a bow as good as or even better than any man. And she can take arrows instead of the men she protects. And carries her deposed king up a mountainside. Plus, she even makes the men fall disguised as a man.
She’s intelligent. I LOVE this aspect of her. After watching so many ignorant female leads, I appreciate how quick-witted and resourceful she is. Tell me; what woman other than Seungnyang could keep our dear whinny baby emperor alive? Or could fool the men who raised her for ten years into thinking she was a man? Or could outsmart the empress and everyone else?
She is fiercely loyal. Even after she was left, virtually an orphan, she still strove to make those who killed her mother pay. And then later on, went on to seek vengeance for her father who she hadn’t seen for most of her life. Then, protected Wang Yu and then Ta Hwan against all odds? To this day or episode, she’s still loyal to Wang Yu even though it’s not in her best interest.
Lastly, Seungnyang never lets herself get pushed around. She manipulates and uses people to her advantage, sure. But she always has her own agenda in mind which I very much admire. Dang Ki Se commanding her to become his concubine? She turns him down flat (several times) even though he tries to make her suffer. Yonhwa trying to intimidate her? She schools all those who dare to try. Baby emperor tries to seduce her? As if she’d let him get close enough.
Really, this drama is amazing but Ha Ji Won as Seungnyang is marvelous.
