Do you ever feel lonely with no reason at all, that kind of moment when you woke up at 2 AM and just cried? Maybe it’s just the hormones or whatnot, but do you know the cure for sappiness? K-Drama! Yes, K-Drama saves lives.
To chase the lonesomeness away, let’s rundown some of the highlights of Ruler: Master of the Mask Ep 15-16.
- Her Majesty, the Cunning Queen
And just when I was starting to hope that the Queen is genuinely fighting for justice and the good of the people, she showed her true face. Her majesty seems to be playing her cards well by using both the fake king and Ga-eun for her personal ambitions.
First, she is controlling Commoner Lee Sun by using his affection for Ga-eun. The Queen promised to make Ga-eun a high–ranking court lady for him in exchange of letting go of Master Dae-mok’s hand. Commoner Lee Sun did his best to delay the approval of giving the Bureau of Water power to produce currency.
Second, her majesty is using Ga-eun’s anguish for her father’s death by vowing to restore Deputy Magistrate Han’s honor. The Queen, in exchange, wants Ga-eun to serve as her eyes and ears while executing her plan to dethrone the king.
- Master Woo-bo, Drunkard No More
Our drunkard master made a grand appearance at the royal court and shamed all the Pyunsoo-hwe ministers right in their bearded faces. He revealed to the king that a group of “evil men” disguised themselves as pirates and trafficked copper.
The look on the ministers’ faces is priceless especially when master Woo-bo announced that he was able to seize the copper from them. Crown Prince Lee Sun and the gang were able to trick Master Dae-mok’s group into thinking that they were able to take back the copper.
On a side note, Master Woo-bo is named the Minister of Personnel after the Chief Peddler’s bargain with the Queen. Adjunct Park was appointed his deputy.
- Ga Eun, the Lonely and Great Savior
The scene where Hwa-gun rescued the crown prince from the assassins sent by Master Dae-mok is no surprise to me.
From that moment when Gon appeared to be eavesdropping Master Dae-mok’s plan against the Chief Peddler, I knew right then that Hwa-gun will save Crown Prince Lee Sun. It’s just a shame that she was able to see with her own eyes how her beloved royalty is risking his life to save Ga-eun from danger.
Honestly, the look on Hwa-gun’s face made me a bit uneasy. I’m worried whether she will turn her back to the Crown Prince Lee Sun because of Ga-eun.
- True Love Returns?
I didn’t know that my hunky daddy has acquired himself a new title. I am now naming hot Bodyguard Chun-woo as Ruler: Master of the Mask’s official love guru.
Chun-soo, through his wise words, successfully convinced Crown Prince Lee Sun to go after Ga-eun. The crown prince admitted to Ga-eun that “he is Chun-soo” and that he never for a moment forgot her. Crown Prince Lee Sun promised to never leave her alone again.
- Mae-chang and the Mysterious Door
Heol, daebak! Could Mae-chang get any more mysterious? This scene caught me off guard. The beautiful kisaeng is just getting more puzzling as the story goes on. Who do you think is the person behind the door? Mae-chang is obviously reporting to someone inside the palace since she even masked herself as a court lady. But wait, is Mae-chang really on disguise or is it her true self? Ugggghhhhh.
