A SORROWFUL DUTY
This episode aired on April 8, 2019. Spoiler Alert!
Our dear Crown Prince stops the medicine from the Royal Infirmary that the King Kyungjong had been taking under the suspicion that Yi Tan (Mil Pung-kun) had tampered it, by adding poison. He then sends for the best doctors from outside the palace. Chief Justice Jo says to him he believes he has other motives for stopping the medicine, like taking the throne for himself. And though Lee Geum is furious he lets it pass for the sake of what is more important in the moment: to save the King. Prince Lee Geum also summons Mun-su to the palace and tells him about his suspicions about Mil Pung-kun. Mun-su gets to work right away trying to help his royal friend.
Our leading lady came back as Yeo-ji is brought before Queen Inwon, who takes her as a court lady even without finishing her training as she has noble eyes.
In the last part of the episode, we see King Kyungjong is given a very toxic medicine: wolfsbane. This medicine brings him to a conscious state to say his final words full of kindness to his younger brother Lee Geum. Then he falls unconscious again and Lee Geum cuts his hand in a final attempt to save him with his own blood, but it is all futile and the King dies. Everyone weeps…
Oh… watching these photos of Lee Geum crying for his brother, just makes me thing of Il-woo crying for Awoo. Just so sad…
…and today April 15, the Notredame Cathedral in Paris caught on fire and suffered severe damage. The main spire fell and at this point there is no much information on the origin of the fire or the amount of damage. I pray they were able to save the towers, their gargoyles and the round stain glass. There were no human lives claimed … thank goodness.
…and tomorrow marks another anniversary of the Sewol tragedy in South Korea as well. Over 300 people died, many of them secondary school students from the Danwon High School that were on a field trip. The Safety Investigation Report made by the Korea Maritime Safety Tribunal noted that Sewol at the time of departure was carrying 2,142.7 tons of cargo when its maximum allowance was 987 tons!
