Latest Guilty Pleasure Update
TV series Empress Cheonchu aka The Iron Empress has taken over my life. Now on episode 61 of 78. It’s on Hulu. Based on the life of Hwangbo Soo / Queen Honae/ Empress Cheonchu. Chae Shi-ra is totally bada$$ as the title character.
Empress Cheonchu was a skilled warrior (archery, swordswoman & equestrian) and politician. She’s driven to reclaim land lost in previous wars and restore Goryeo as a great empire. Think of Xena Warrior Princess in her warlord period.
Fans of Hero, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Curse of the Golden Flower and Red Cliff (international version) will love the doomed romances, endless backstabbing/betrayals, awesome martial arts/fight scenes and epic battle sequences. LOVE LOVE LOVE the sets & costumes! Who will be the last person standing?
