Gwanghae becomes mad, throwing a working clothes covered with a lot of sulfur on the floor.
Do Ha is about to run away after the crime has been uncovered, threatening Joo Sun's wife with a knife when Heo Gyun arrives at Joo Sun's house in obedience to the royal command. Gyun pretends to calm him down and makes him stab himself with the knife off his guard. As the faithful servant falls to the ground, he shouts, "He stabbed himself. Transfer him to a hospital!"
Kang Joo Sun is riveted to the spot while the King's man throws him a suggestive grin.
Meanwhile, Gwanghae can't down his anger at the news.
Joo Won gets off scot-free thanks to Hawi and In Woo and his father begs humbly for forgiveness.

Gwanghae offers Hawi some of refreshments scrutinizing her disciplined behavior. The King asks her some private questions and he bets his shirt on the young man's honesty. Gwanghae draws his sword at the stranger, "Who are you? You are lying to me. What is your intention in joining Hawgidogam?"
Princess Jeongmyeon looks straight at him without a word.
