Since I still have a heavy heart on how Hwa-gun’s real identity was revealed and Commoner Lee Sun’s greediness still annoys me, let’s focus on how these two issues unfold in Ruler: Master of the Mask Episodes 25-26.
- Hwa-gun’s Confession
After the untimely revelation of her real identity to Crown Prince Lee Sun in the previous episode, I was highly anticipating how Hwa-gun will explain herself to our beloved royalty.
But first, let me laud Crown Prince Lee Sun’s nobleness for thanking Hwa-gun. He may have felt betrayed but at least he did not forget to express his gratitude. I also kinda understand him asking Master Dae-mok’s granddaughter to not meet again in private.
This scene is where Hwa-gun spilled her heart out to the crown prince, telling him how she saved his life multiple times because she loves her.
Hwa-gun also confessed that she made the deal with her grandfather to become Pyunsoo-hwe’s leader in exchange of his life.
Hwa-gun’s “how much more shall I give for you” line got me bad. She gave off the impression of asking whether she will ever be enough. My heeeeeart 😢
- Commoner Lee Sun Asking For a Slap
Remember how Crown Prince Lee Sun and hot bodyguard Chun-woo risked their lives and trespassed into Master Dae-mok’s house to find a poppy pill for the fake king? And remember that I said I’m willing to travel through time to slap Commoner Lee Sun if he doesn’t get his act together?
Well, the puppet king seems to be asking to be hit in the face as his greediness reached new heights.
Commoner Lee Sun has no problem being as cunning as the Queen and it seems that he is forgetting who he is and why he ended up wearing a mask.
Fact, the crown prince did not ask for his help, he offered it. Is it because he wanted to bring justice to his father’s death? Maybe? Is it because he believes and supports the crown prince’s ideology against the Pyunsoo-hwe? Probably?
Commoner Lee Sun proposed to be the crown prince’s substitue because he’s tired of being poor. He said so himself, all he wants is to study and not to think of whether he has food to eat. He should not put all the burden to Crown Prince Lee Sun cause he himself is to be blamed as well! I rest my case.
I commend Infinite’s L for being an effective actor and annoying the hell out of me. Chukahae (congrats)!
To help wash off my infuration from Commoner Lee Sun, here’s Infinite L and Kim Ye-rim singing Love U Like U from 2012 tvN series Shut Up Flower Boy Band.
Sometimes, without me realizing
I feel like my heart will be revealed
So I just smile awkwardly
Like a fool, I just smile
I have a feeling that Commoner Lee Sun will get worse in the next episode. Let’s find out. Annyeong!
