Kim Sun Ah And Her Husband’s Mistress End Up Wearing The Same Outfit In “The Empire”
JTBC’s “The Empire” has shared a sneak peek of a tense face-off from its upcoming episode!
“The Empire” is a new drama about the private lives and dark secrets of the overly ambitious “royalty” that rules over the most prestigious legal circles of Korea. Kim Sun Ah stars as Han Hye Ryul, the ambitious and intelligent head of the Central District Prosecutors’ Office’s Special Branch, who hails from a wealthy and powerful family. Ahn Jae Wook stars as her husband Na Geun Woo, a law school professor who is on the verge of becoming a presidential candidate.
On the first episode of “The Empire,” Na Geun Woo was revealed to be having an affair with law student Hong Nan Hee (Joo Se Bin), despite being happily married to his oblivious wife.
In newly released stills from the drama’s second episode, Han Hye Ryul gives a special lecture at the law school that her son Han Kang Baek (Kwon Ji Woo) is attending. However, she is caught off guard when she unexpectedly discovers that Hong Nan Hee is wearing the same outfit as she is—an outfit that is deeply linked to her husband.
Even in the face of this surprising incident, Han Hye Ryul keeps her cool as she handles the situation with her usual composure. However, there is still palpable tension between her and Hong Nan Hee, who seems to be challenging Han Hye Ryul with her bold, brazen attitude.
To find out what transpires between the two women—and whether Han Hye Ryul will catch on to the fact that she’s being cheated on—tune in to the next episode of “The Empire” on September 25 at 10:30 p.m. KST!
