Just when you think troubles are over, in this episode we see King Yeongjo struggling as the changes he is trying to make are shaking the very structures the government was built upon. We see the Namin leader In-jwa finally trapped by no other than Mun su. He brings him before the king and after a rough exchange, King Yeongjo states that probably the person that understands him the most is the very person he was trying to get rid of. He is then imprisoned.
King Yeongjo gives Namin Aristocrats High Official placements as promised. The Noron and Soron are furious and the throne room is filled with angry screams. King Yeongjo sits patiently and listens to it all.
We finally get a kiss! Yes!!! Finally we see the sweetest scene between King Yeongjo and Yeo ji where she has made him some treats. And then he rewards her with the best treat…his kiss! It is beautifully set, even in the reflection of a nearby pond!
In this episode, Mil Pung Kun’s love, Yoon-young dies in the hands of the person that she had given all her precious possessions to, by accident as she shielded a stab that was supposed to go to Mil Pung kun. It is very sad as Mil Pung kun runs away and Dal Moon finds her and is beside himself. I thought it was beautiful how they wrote the part of the King finding out and feeling sadness for his friend.
Towards the end of the Episode King Yeongjo goes to the Saheonbu, as his new appointed Chief Inspector of the Saheonbu can’t even get through the door as all the high officials are blocking his way. He hold a meeting where he states that he will eliminate the position of Chief Justice that oversaw in a very corrupted way all justice related entities of the kingdom. Imagine the surprise!
As this is happening, inside the palace there is a huge uproar as Mil Pung kun has walked in screaming “I am the king!” holding a butcher’s knife he stole! He is surrounded by the guards who encircle him…
Had to copy this line by Lord Min Jin… it is so full of wisdom!
