An interesting historical royal romance webtoon is being developed into a K-drama am I’m already expecting massive amounts of hate for the second male and female leads lol. They already made me seething and it’s from reading the webtoon, it’ll be million times worse seeing those two douchenozzles in live action form. The webtoon is called Remarried Empress and tells the story of a young Empress married to a young Emperor, they were actually best friends who grew up together as she’s a noble and he’s royalty, and their marriage is as best friends and good partners ruling the country together but no romance.
Then the Emperor rescues a runaway slave and falls in love with her, and she’s just a total sly fox and he turns into an asshole, and wants a divorce from his Empress. She agrees but in exchange asks for a right to get remarried, and shocks everyone when she announces that she’s remarrying the Crown Prince of the neighboring rival kingdom who is even hotter than her husband. Dang, you go girl! The story starts with that scene and goes back to the beginning on how her dumbass Emperor husband gets ensnared by the pretty slave and how the Empress ends up developing a friendship with the Crown Prince of the other kingdom. It’s pretty interesting and I love the Empress to pieces, she’s a rock star.
