Jo Yeo Jung (Kim Min Seo) makes bad blood between the father and the son and Injo blows up at the Crown Prince who acted on his own judgment.

Injo is well known for the worst king in the Joseon Dynasty which is lasted for about 500 years, except King Seonjo whose grandson is King Injo.
He has a serious inferiority complex as a bastard son as well as political incompetence as a leader of the country, as shown in the history-based TV series. He is too weak and childish. :(

Sohyeon has a talk with the representative by command of the King. He reminds him of an old Chinese line "The beauty of a flower will not last ten days." to the very conceited person. The envoy advises the young man to face up to the reality and his sharp remark brings a stabbing pain to his heart.

He is cool!!
Baek Sung Hyun started his career as a child actor in the mid-1990s.
Now the little boy has become a dramatic actor as well as a handsome guy. :)

Crown Princess secretly asks Princess Jeongmyeong (Lee Yeon Hee) to persuade her husband being against his father. Sohyeon sticks to his decision to the last and tries to persuade the weak and indecisive man to engage in realistic diplomacy for the people. Meanwhile, Injo misjudges the daughter-in-law's real intentions due to Yeo Jung's plotting against her.
