Hmmm... but what if the king reveals that who killed Hwi's father was actually BW? It could be a lie from the king to turn Hwi against BW or the truth, which might explain the special treatment that BW gave him being out of guilt. That might give Hwi enough reason to turn against him...And maybe be the twist JH spoke about

Wow! That might be an excellent but terrifying twist! And actually someone on twitter, suspected this a long time ago! (Was it you? Lol) In fact, this would explain why BW has been so vague with Hwi about Seogeom :sweatingbullets:

:) Not me... It's just that the show left so many things unclear about BW in the beginning, that anything could be said about him

This would blow my mind, but I’ve always “felt” BW is a bit “unhinged” so it could totally work. It’s those tiny moments when he practically curses and mocks his father (especially lately, with tears in his eyes and a half smirk, I’m like is this the pain and sadness his father still cause him or is he kookoo? His gestures become such a perfect combination of pain and anger and hate, it’s chilling)  I’m going to cry a little if this is the twist, but it would be so interesting. “The guilt is unbearable”, “regret is for the weak”...all of these phrases come to mind and wow

Don't know if I'd call him kookoo :) It's was just a very bloody time, and killing so many people at the service of someone you trusted and loved who later betrayed you, must leave a mark on a person. It's clear that BW was a very loyal and loving son, to both his dad and mother. This is what actual historical accounts show. And it's also clear he did some horrible stuff for his dad, so the killing of his mentor for his dad wouldn't be out of the ordinary. And then his dad betrayed him, so his regret for everything he did might be ten fold now, but also will make him less trusting of everyone. In which case he might become even more ruthless. 

This, again, makes me wish MC focused on BW instead of on the useless three... JH's take on him is fascinating, and I'm sure that if he was allowed to show the actual evolution of BW, instead of giving us the random BW scenes that we got, this show could have been magnificent. Instead, it was like we got glimpses of a much better show whenever JH was on in a rather average show.

Also, did you notice that JH said that BW was known as the " monarch of desire and Blood"? Where the hell was the desire in this show?! Now, I don't expect scenes like in Empire of lust, but maybe show BW with a woman once in a while?!

@Biology Lesson My “unhinged” feeling is only a feeling, but I don’t mean it because of his “actions”, its because of some tiny expressions he makes at times. If I can find the exact moment I refer to I’ll post it.  But thats just me seeing things. I agree with everything you’ve said so far. About desire, its probably a mistranslation of greed or ambition? The desire is what I feel whenever he flicks that fan :wub:

I'm also afraid that king might sabotage Bang Won by telling Hwi that it was BW who killed Hwi's father. Aiya, we could be director ourselves already with so many speculations and possibilities to the plot.

I feel Bang Won felt deeply betrayed by his father. It could be in those years, his father might have given BW a "false" hope. Like if you help me win the battles....I will recognise your efforts and it could be that BW might have mistakenly thought he was going to be crowned the CP. He was very loyal to his father until then. When all the battles were fought and when he found out that he not only didn't be crowned the CP, he was also being used by his father for his father's glory sake. Thus the deep resentment towards his father.

Lol...you still didn't get over the 3 of them ya...!! But me too wished that this story is about Bang Won. It would have been more interesting I supposed. I really did find the love between Hwi and HJ so awkward. HJ role seems redundant to me. Not anything significant, what does Illwaru do? 

 

Bang Won seemed more like a eunuch here to me. Didn't see him desire any woman (unlike the real Bang Won). I really thought initially that we were going to see Bang Won and HJ develop some feelings to each other. I seem to find BW and HJ looked more suited than HJ and Hwi. But perhaps the desire that JH mentioned is his desire for kingship, not women. Talking about BW in EOL, I actually like him there too. Blame it on the plot and everything else but I enjoyed his portrayal there. 

 

Will get to see episode 15 tomorrow morning (hopefully). Please all the subtitles (english and chinese) please come out.

@The Reel Life Thank youuuuuu for telling us a bit about the preview. I would love to know more! (But, in case you actually can translate some more, maybe  hide it as a “spoiler” because I know some of our friends prefer to avoid even the previews :sweatingbullets:


I also wished I knew more Korean language but it’s limited to beginners and basic vocabulary. I’m learning but it’s taking a long time so I can’t translate more LOL.

 This could be possible too but NOOOOOOO I hope not. He saw Seo Geom as his father figure and mentor, why would he kill him just nonono! And his conversation with Nam Jeon previously implied that NJ had a hand in SG’s death, so let’s hope that was it. But you guys are right in the sense that until today, SG’s death is still a mystery, so... who knows?

 

if indeed BW killed SG, then it probably pained his heart to do so but SG’s death was long before his tumultuous relationship with the King right? So hopefully not. 
 

Maybe the twist isn’t even a huge twist at all, maybe it’s just Sun Ho and Hwi surviving and mending their rship, or maybe Hwi took the bullet (in this case arrow/sword) for Sun Ho and died in his place when someone wanted to kill Sun Ho.

Actually we know Bang Won killed under his father's instructions but we've not seen him kill. It was told to us. Only saw him slashed NJ that's all. Could this be the "twist" that it was not shown to us who Bang Won killed so the actual killer may not be Bang Won?

Or maybe the twist is just the 2 men reconcile instead of being enemies! LOL. We shall see.

So, am finally watching ep. 13 (yeah, I know, I'm a bit late... ) and I noticed how prominently JH was displaying the fan that was gifted to him by his artist friend in the scene in which he had Hwi's friend burn his slave papers. Even while he was walking away that fan was in full display! :)He's such a nice guy!

Man, but this capture is magnificent... Now, this new hair style looks GOOD! JH is incredible! I feel so fortunate having been introduced to him, and I kinda feel sorry for anyone who doesn't know him yet...

What is happening again? Dramacool hasn't got episode 15. So I watched chinese website but no subtitle! Watched without knowing what they're saying.

I'm so done with the 2 boys. I hope netizens blast the writer.

From spoilers I saw it sounds like it was a Seonho - Hwi teenage angst fest (boring) 

 

Netflix will stream eps 15 and 16 on the 26th and 27th
