This episode marks the death of politeness—everyone stops dancing around and playing nice on the surface, and we witness how quickly one false move puts the prince’s life in peril. Both Sun and his teacher look back and forth in shock, and Teacher Park is the one to raise his voice that this is an outrage—the prince is not the killer!
Teacher Park goes straight to Prime Minister Kim to have it out with him, and grabs him by the collar to shake the truth out of him. Princess Hyegyeong receives word that her husband has just been arrested for murder, and runs out of her palace to ask her father what’s happening. But Sun knows the answer to that question is about to open up a can of worms, and he looks back and forth between Teacher Park and Prime Minister Kim. Their heads turn with his every movement, and they all gape in horror as Sun stops… right in front of Prime Minister Kim. Sun accuses him of ordering the deaths of the two royal artists, and then the death of Shadow to tie up loose ends.
Sun approaches him with the copy of the maengui, the secret document that Heung-bok transcribed into the pages of Ji-dam’s novel. Yeongjo’s eyes dart left to right searching for a way out, but all he can do is grab the incriminating pages and fall to the ground, as his ministers look on. Whoosh, back to the interrogation, as Yeongjo prods Sun for an answer as to why he sought out Shadow in the first place. And then in a move that really drops jaws, Yeongjo orders Sun to be locked up in jail until he decides he wants to start answering questions truthfully.
It’s only when Yeongjo leaves the scene that he betrays any anguish at treating his son that way. Prime Minister Kim says he just regrets the fact that the prince has to suffer, so then Sun asks him to personally prove his innocence if he really feels that way.
The prince’s people focus on the murder weapon that was planted at the crime scene, and Advisor Chae entreats Court Lady Choi to remember any suspicious activity from any of her staff. When Sun turns around to return to his cell, she calls out after him, “You will come out. And while we all suspected as much given the historical context, we finally get to the meat and potatoes of the secret document—it details the intent to place a new king on the throne, and says that history will forgive the use of swords and poison (King Gyeongjong died of mysterious causes, and it was always suspected that he was poisoned).
Sun looks at the signatures (all nicknames or codenames) and recognizes only one: that of Prime Minister Kim Taek.
He spits defensively that while his brother only wore the royal robes for four years, he’s worn them for thirty, always in service of the people and never once with any selfish desires for power beyond that. Hyegyeong and Teacher Park each take turns trying to get an audience with the king, but keep getting rejected at every turn.
Advisor Chae visits Sun in prison and has a fit about him taking the fall and not naming Teacher Park as the killer. Sun says that Teacher Park wants the same thing that they want, and asks Advisor Chae to keep this between them for now.
Ji-dam and her father hear of the prince’s arrest and worry that things have gone massively astray. Princess Hyegyeong, meanwhile, is busy ordering the prince’s eunuch to stab himself in the neck with a knife, for failing in his duties to protect Sun. Chae suggests they head back to his home because he has things to ask Ji-dam, but when they get there, they find the house overturned and his servant crying that men in black stormed in here and took Ji-dam away.
Teacher Park promises to free Sun and receive his just punishment when all is said and done, and asks the prince to trust him and wait.
Teacher Park seeks out the mayor to go over the particulars of the case, but is informed that everything’s already been handed over to the state tribunal.
Park swears that the real killer is someone else, but they don’t give a damn about that. That’s awfully dangerous talk, and Teacher Park follows the Soron leader to ask if he really intends to use the document to overthrow Yeongjo and place someone else in power. Park sighs to see Yeongjo’s motives so plainly, and asks if he likes power that much, to risk his own son.
Yeongjo is practically dancing rhetorical circles around Park, and asks for the secret document so they can free the prince and put him back in his rightful place. It’s clear now that Yeongjo is too far gone, and Park refuses to hand over the document. Park storms into Prime Minister Kim’s home and demands that Chul-joo and Ji-dam be returned to their rightful places by tomorrow. Sun slams his fist into the wall when Advisor Chae tells him that Ji-dam and Chul-joo are missing. Advisor Chae is startled because he recognizes the name for Prime Minister Kim, and identifies a few other key Noron members, Min Baek-sang and Kim Sang-ro, members of the prime minister’s inner circle. Advisor Chae gives Eunuch Jang instructions to begin the search, but the eunuch hems and haws awkwardly. Elsewhere in the palace, Hyegyeong opens up a suspiciously large sack… and there inside is a hog-tied and gagged Ji-dam. Hyegyeong tamps down her anger to say that she isn’t kidnapping her—she needs her testimony. Advisor Chae loses his temper when he hears that Hyegyeong has Ji-dam, and that Eunuch Jang basically spilled all his beans under pressure.
Hyegyeong has Ji-dam safely moved to her palace, and asks her father to have Officer Min brought here. Sun is pacing in his cell when Advisor Chae returns, and is shocked to hear that Ji-dam is safe in Hyegyeong’s care, of all people. The Noron ministers realize that it’s possible that the princess has Ji-dam, and that actually fills them with dread. Little San is exhausted, but Hyegyeong refuses to let her court lady comfort him, and puts the child right back by her side to do his duty as the royal heir. It’s probably saddest for Teacher Park, who put his faith in those good intentions one too many times. I like that things are out in the open too, because the last two episodes have been a big step up, with heavier consequences, bigger stakes, and a nice funneling of all the disparate story elements into one central conflict that drives each episode.


After see how the LH earnestly tried her best to freed Sado, it is going to be really hurt when she decide to abandon her husband for her child sake. It could be that Sado ended up in a position from which there was no escape, much like Queen Anne Boleyn or Richard II in England.
I’m glad to see that Hyegeong is shown as loyal to her husband and determined to help him as much as she can. This show really benefited from the strong actors, I can’t imagine anyone else do what Park Eun Bin doing, being mad and in love in one stare. I appreciate the gumption of the Princess but I think that the conflicting ideologies of Sun and Hyegyeong will weaken their bond. Did anyone else feel the shiver of foreshadowing when Advisor Chae tells Teacher Park that he’s worried that if Ji-dam dies, Sun will never forgive himself and just break? It does not bother me with the replacement, i have enjoyed Yoon So Hee previous roles and think she can do good in this as well.
I decided to watch this drama because Kim Yoo Jung and I’m so disappointed she replaced by someone else…. Why and Why she’s out of the scene just like that and whatever the reason is Why did u casting her as female lead role in first place?
This young women has more star power than any child actress since Shirley Temple and Natalie Wood (look it up grasshopper).
I have been an art educator for most of my life and I recommend working plays and live theater while she gets her feet under her as a grown up leading lady.

The political claws get sharpened out in the open, and in a fantastic move, once the prince’s hands are tied, we get to see what the princess is made of. But even more shocking is the fact that the king has ordered them to proceed with the investigation knowing that this means Sun will have to stand trial. She pleads with him to stop the trial from happening, but even as she’s talking, the court ministers are filing past them to begin the interrogation. Yeongjo asks very straightforward questions about who Shadow was and why Sun went to his house the night he discovered the body. Yeongjo prods him for an answer, so Sun says truthfully that he went looking for the person who ordered Heung-bok and Jung-woon’s murders. Yeongjo stands up and asks defensively what possible motive Prime Minister Kim could have for those murders. He says that the motive is right here—keeping the conspiracy documented in these pages a secret. Father and son lock eyes, and Sun’s eyes well up with tears to see his father so broken.
Yeongjo looks pointedly at Teacher Park (ah, is he hurting him by going after Sun?), while Sun glares daggers at Prime Minister Kim.
The ministers stand frozen in their places, wondering what on earth they’re supposed to do.
Ha, has he just entrusted the murderer to prove that the man he framed for his own crimes is innocent? She remembers the girl who acted strangely while digging through a dresser, and when they go to search her quarters, she’s gone. He takes them off and comes back out to hand them over, and finds Hyegyeong waiting to receive them. We see Prime Minister Kim creating the document thirty years in the past, and getting his Noron co-conspirators to sign it.
He wonders who the others are, and if the new king they intended to place on the throne is his father. Hyegyeong fumes to hear that Yeongjo went to see his concubine Lady Moon, and worries about what Lady Moon will do to further undermine his relationship with Sun.
Ji-dam is antsy to go see Chul-joo herself, but Dad insists she stay put (at Advisor Chae’s house, their latest hideout) while he checks on Chul-joo. Eunuch Jang begs for mercy, so Hyegyeong tells him he can live if he tells her everything that’s been going on and how Sun ended up in prison. Ruh-roh, I really don’t think this is the way you want to be framing the story for the princess. Mu is slowly bleeding Chul-joo out with shallow cuts, and asks why he sensed humaneness in Chul-joo’s hand as they fought one another.
Chul-joo winces from the pain, but it does get Mu out of the room for a while, and it gives him a chance to try and get to the tools that are just out of reach. And when he argues that the prince has been unfairly imprisoned, the Soron simply say that he’s there ahead of schedule, since neither Yeongjo nor Sun have the right to the throne, the way they see it. Teacher Park pleads with him not to repeat the bloodshed that they faced in the past, and asks him to keep a lid on his hasty colleagues. Teacher Park’s face goes white to hear Yeongjo already treating this unborn child as his future heir apparent, and Hyegyeong panics when she hears the same news.
Yeongjo just does what he does best and plays mind-games with him, countering that Park is the one who made him do this: “Why did you force my hand?
Chae demands some answers about what Park knows, worried that if Ji-dam dies, Sun will never forgive himself and just break. Kim tells him that nothing in life is free, but Park threatens to make the contents of the document public to the entire nation if he doesn’t comply. He says it’s time to clear his path out of here, and hands Advisor Chae the page of the maengui that contains all the signatures. Sun tells him to use whatever means necessary to search these men and their surroundings—one of them will have Ji-dam. Court Lady Choi thinks that maybe this isn’t a terrible development, since Ji-dam might be the only way to get Sun out of jail.
Her father protests that Minister Min is a powerful man and bringing his son here to testify might bring calamity upon all of them, but she’s determined to see this through.


Hyegyeong then kneels in the king’s courtyard to plead for a retrial, accompanied by their tiny son who wails appropriately just as his father was taught to do. Yeongjo covers his ears to drown out their cries, annoyed that his grandson and daughter-in-law are adding to his troubles, but Hyegyeong continues, prepared to do this all night.
Sun is more alarmed than anyone that Hyegyeong intends to put Ji-dam before the court as a witness, and has dragged their tiny son out there to plead his case before the king.
Advisor Chae refuses to back down this time, because it’s the only way to get the prince out of jail.
I’m glad for his sake that Sun is still such a hopeful idealist, because you get the sense that his teacher might break otherwise.
This show has a tendency to bombard us with far too many players and a constellation of related conflicts, rather than one focused problem that hurtles everyone towards the same narrative cliff; the latest episodes have done a much better job of pulling all the loose strands tightly into one new problem that drives everyone each hour, and it feels like the pace is picking up a result. Plus, if you were planning this from the get-go, then why wouldn’t you have cast a high-profile actress from the start?? Yoon So-hee is an unknown rookie with just a few projects under her belt, and really, onscreen she doesn’t seem that much older either.
Kim Yoo-jung has the wide-eyed purity that just makes her seem actually younger than her years, whereas I kind of wanted to slap Yoon So-hee every time her Hyun-hee character was onscreen in Marriage Not Dating. Maybe they actually couldn’t get them because this was clearly some sort of mid-season freakout and replacement that was unplanned. On the other hand, signing on a newbie actress at this late stage might indicate that Ji-dam is taking a backseat now. Ji-dam really didn’t do much for me alive, but she could have really done something in her death. I watched thia bcoz of her and waiting for her comeback, yet this kind of twist then why the picture if her in most of the cover. She has incredible timing, expressive eyes and you can see the characters thoughts go across her face (the mark of a true artist).
Also, she needs some time to sink her teeth into theatrical literature and to find her own voice. The difference in their physical sizes makes the power disparity feel particularly sardonic. Her father warns her to return to her quarters since it isn’t her place to be here, and falls in line with the other officials.
She takes his clothes silently and looks like she’s on the verge of tears the whole time, but holds them back. What did I do wrong?!” He turns from anger to laughter to anguish in a matter of seconds, as he stands there looking up at his brother, as if waiting for an answer. He orders Chae to look into Eastside boss Chul-joo’s whereabouts to figure out exactly what he and Teacher Park were up to.
But Sun assures him that what Park did was in service of uncovering the truth, and that if his teacher can work to make sure that innocent lives were not lost in vain, then he can stand to spend some time in jail to do his part. The mayor says he didn’t hand over the evidence that would be bad for Park, and takes out the piece of cloth that was found at the crime scene. The genius part, of course, is that it’s totally effective because Teacher Park loves the prince. Park cries that even a gangster is one of the king’s people, and Yeongjo agrees but says small sacrifices are needed in order to do big things. Ji-dam tells her about Heung-bok’s murder, and when Hyegyeong asks if she can testify to those facts in court, Ji-dam agrees without hesitation. She points out that Sun himself was not much older when he began to lie prostrate before the king, which… is true, but that was totally messed up. I really want to see Sun being a father too, whether good or bad, because it just adds another layer of depth to his sad and twisted dynamic with his father. It probably has a lot to do with putting our hero in mortal danger and threatening to take away his crown, but thankfully there’s no shortage of that conflict where royals are concerned. Either Kim Yoo-jung’s character should have been a few years older (actresses play older all the time), or cast the other chick from the start. Sun comes out of his reverie and decides to hold his tongue, and replies that he can’t give an answer. I can see their parenting being a source of strife with his wife too, since Hyegyeong is all about the tough love and scary discipline. Yeongjo is the one who said to Sun that he might be his father by blood but Teacher Park was his father in heart, and it’s frightening how easily he uses that truth to his advantage when it serves his purposes. She has that innocence that could carry over from Kim Yoo-jung, and the sprightly energy, but can also emote and be more intense. But maybe I was not paying attention because I was preoccupied with Lee Je-hoon’s hotness?? And the Prince wasn?t set up for a Love but political issues (here the document about the past) .. Hyegyeong’s father sends his officers out to capture Officer Min, and the Noron camp panics. But the truly maddening thing is that he shows bits of remorse, and it feels like deep down, he wants nothing more than for Sun to survive this so that he can get rid of the goddamned maengui and rule peacefully as a just and fair king, and pass that kingdom down to his only son. I really hope we get some development between Sun and Hyegyeong in the wake of this episode too, because he’s a fool if he lets her brain and her guts of steel go wasted, especially when she already loves him. First of all, the role was described from the outset as just being Kim Yoo-jung’s, from start to finish.
I watch this Drama because of the mystery and hardships of the prince and not for a loveline or one actress ..
