Kim Sun Ah And Ahn Jae Wook Run Into His Former Mistress And Their Son At Dinner In “The Empire”
Be prepared for some serious tension on the next episode of JTBC’s “The Empire”!
“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.
Previously on “The Empire,” Na Geun Woo broke things off with Hong Nan Hee (Joo Se Bin), who refused to accept that he was ending their affair. Infuriated by his decision, Hong Nan Hee began to cozy up to Na Geun Woo’s stepson Han Kang Baek (Kwon Ji Woo), upsetting his longtime girlfriend Jang Ji Yi (Lee Ga Eun).
In newly released stills from the drama’s upcoming episode, Han Hye Ryul and Na Geun Woo are enjoying a peaceful night out when their dinner is suddenly interrupted by an unwelcome intruder: to their shock, Hong Nan Hee shows up at the restaurant with Han Kang Baek and his friend Jung Kyung Yoon (Jung Jae Oh).
For the sake of her beloved son, Han Hye Ryul attempts to maintain her composure, but Na Geun Woo is unable to hide his discomfort as he faces his former mistress in this unexpected setting. On the other hand, Hong Nan Hee is as bold and brazen as always, sitting down to dine with the couple while staring challengingly at Han Hye Ryul.
To find out what happens during this immensely awkward dinner, tune in to the next episode of “The Empire” on October 9 at 10:30 p.m. KST!
