We all know that this day would come but we’re still not prepared for it. Let’s dig into Ruler: Master of the Mask Episodes 23-24 on how Crown Prince Lee Sun discovered Hwa-gun’s real identity.
The Four-Step BIG Reveal
1. Ga-eun didn’t know what kind of mess she made when she stole the poppy pill bamboo canister from the fake king. She put all their lives in danger, and I’m trying so hard not to get annoyed with her cause I still have that kiss hangover from the previous episode. I think now is the perfect time for Ga-eun to come to her senses and see how the Queen is manipulating her.
2. Commoner Lee Sun may be a big green eyed monster but the crown prince still showed his love and compassion for him. You may call it guilt or plain nobleness but I admire how Crown Prince Lee Sun cared for the pauper king when he was suffering after failing to take the poppy pill.
3. Crown Prince Lee Sun and hot bodyguard Chun-woo became daring ninjas and trespassed to Master Dae-mok’s house to try to find some poppy pill for the puppet king. The fantastic duo risked their lives for Commoner Lee Sun so he better be nice to them and know his place in the next episode, this K-Drama drunkard noona won’t mind travelling back in time to slap the hell out of him.
4. I honestly feel conflicted in this scene. I’m a bit relieved that Crown Prince Lee Sun finally discovered Hwa-gun’s real identity, but on the other hand, I’m heavyhearted that she did not get the chance to tell him the truth on her own way and explain her side. I mean, she’s doing this Pyunsoo-hwe thing all for him and now he will see her in bad light without having the opportunity to defend herself.
I understand how hard it is for Crown Prince Lee Sun and how betrayed he must have felt, but imagine how heartbroken and devastated Hwa-gun must be.
I’ve been admiring Gon and how badass he is since the start of the drama but I didn’t know oppa is such a hottie in real life.
Actor Kim Seo-kyung also took part in 2013 MBC drama When a Man Loves.
I’m nervous for Hwa-gun in the next episodes. Let’s cross our fingers that Crown Prince Lee Sun will be reasonable and hear her explanations. Annyeong!
