Kim Sun Ah Begs Her Son Not To Marry Her Husband’s Former Mistress In “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.
On the previous episode of “The Empire,” Han Kang Baek (Kwon Ji Woo) shocked his mother Han Hye Ryul by unexpectedly bringing Hong Nan Hee (Joo Se Bin) to dinner and announcing that he planned to marry her. However, not only did Hong Nan Hee previously have an affair with her husband, but she also revealed to Han Hye Ryul that she had approached her son with ulterior motives, making it impossible for the prosecutor to approve of their marriage.
In newly released stills from the drama’s upcoming episode, Han Hye Ryul makes an uncharacteristic move by setting her pride aside and begging her son on her knees to marry anyone except for Hong Nan Hee. However, in spite of his mother’s desperate pleas, Han Kang Baek makes it clear that he is more determined than ever to push forward with his engagement.
To find out what transpires after this emotional mother-son confrontation, tune in to the next episode of “The Empire” on October 15 at 10:30 p.m. KST!
