"I want you to call me not father but Your Majesty from now on." King Injo (Kim Jae Won) replies to Crown Prince Sohyeon (Baek Sung Hyun) coldly.

Kim Jae-won is good at acting? He looks really weak and pathetic!
Historically Injo didn't deserve to govern the country as a leader. Nor does president Park, if you ask me. :(
History repeats itself.
Voter participation is pretty low and voter apathy levels are so high among young people in Korea. Having an interest in politics will help us understand how our society works.  
Don't go picnic on election day. You just spend too much time on the road.
If you are fearful about the nation's future and your future, please exercise your rights.

People starts to stockpile basic necessaries hearing the rumor of a second war.
Not being able to contain his sorrow about the people, Sohyeon wails aloud.

Think ill of Princess Jeongmyeong (Lee Yeon Hee), Grand Prince Bongrim (Lee Min Ho) pays a visit to Kang Joo Sun (Jo Sung Ha) for the older brother and the big merchant pretends to persuade the King to extend the hand of friendship to Qing to stop the upcoming war.
The Princess and Hong Joo Won (Seo Kang Joon) question whether his remarks are true.

Sohyeon returned to Joseon from Qing was found dead and Bongrim, Hyojong, inherited the throne, becoming the 17th monarch of the country, when King Injo died in 1649.

Jo Yeo Jung (Kim Min Seo) receives a letter from Kim Ja Jeom (Jo Min Ki), which he advises her to judge from the existing stage of things. He doesn't meet the emergency situation till late at night, looking at a signal fire, although he senses that a storm is coming. He lets the enemy cross the border taking a wait-and-see attitude.

Bongrim later realizes that he was foolish enough to believe what Kang Joo Sun told him.
The King is stunned by the bad news, however, he commands his officials to move to Namhansansug (Namhan Mountain Fortress) to fight desperately, except children and women of the royal family. 
Meanwhile, Injo is deeply moved by his first son's love. (His moods change very quickly. lol) 

Historically,
Failing to escape to Ganghwa Island, Injo took refuge at the Namhan Mountain Fortress, which was immediately besieged by the Manchu army. The Korean army in the fortress suffered from scarcity of food and ammunition. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Crown Princess, Jeongmyeong, and their children rise on refuge way under covert to the royal forces. 
I found something interesting!
Only a nanny who takes care of the newborn baby of Jeongmyeong is sitting in palanquin. :)

Children and women are stranded at a ferry to Ganghwa Island because a high ranking official intercepted a boat. The soldiers rush toward the Island.
