Love The Empress ❤️

I loved watching the Empress! Hope they come out with a season two. They did a great job dubbing in English.

A great watch for 18+ audiences that adore Historical Dramas! Loved it!

Oh. My. God. This show is SPLENDID. The storyline, the plot twists, the cast, the costumes, the scenery!!! I can't find a single fault with the dark fairytale this tv series is unfolding before my very eyes! A perfect period drama. Bridgerton move over, while I would choose that show for a laugh any day, THIS show is so full of angst and ennui you can't help but hunger for more! A must watch.
