king asks ND if it wasnt a coup he was scheming, why was he sticking around. ND sheds tears. the king asks if it wasnt to kill him. The king seems sad as he asks ND. 


ND says in sorrow that the king is right, that he hates the king. 


Ym is now butting in. He apologises, and says that he knows of the truth, that ND was trying to scheme to overthrow the king. HT tells the the king that YM is lying. 


ND asks, what can i say to make you (king) believe me? if i said i was trying to stop Ym, would you believe me? if i said that although i was scared while i was with you, would you believe me if i said i was happy? ND asks if the king felt hurt because of him. He who stayed by his side keeping his identity a secret. he asks the king if he felt betrayed, lied to as ND kept his identity from him. ND says that that was exactly how he felt, when he beleived in the king without knowing that the king wanted to have him killed. 

the king demands that ND is arrested. 

Someone is shooting arrows at guards who are trying to arrest ND. it's DJ. 


THe king escapes with YM, while ND, HT and DJ escapes. 

(honestly i am currently in shock..... did they really need a whole episode to fight....................................)

there's no preview. 


The last episode will air next week. 



everyone i'm honestly quite shocked, the fighting sequence has been needlessly long when the only important parts were in the beggining, when the queen declares ND's identity to the conspirators, and the end, where the king finally appeared. i feel like those were the only few scenes that mattered but we got a whole lot of fighting inside. even political sagueks dont have such long sequence's... even mishil did not have one episode dedicated to her death. 


 although the ending was frustrating, the conversation between the king and ND was really gripping as they are finally voicing their feelings for one another



However, it was really disappointing to see that the King isnt able to believe his own son and instead leaves in YM's arms..... dude... he was the one who organised this poop fest in the first place can u not...

Saw ep 14... man it was slow... haiz...

1. Dont even know why DJ insist in killing the king. To think that the compound was not guarded by men seemed illogical.

2. Prolonging unnecessary scenes

3. King repeating over and over again why he wants to kill his son

4. Basically everything was slow in the episode... haiz...

Although there were some parts that maybe could've ended faster, I liked that the whole episode was all about fighting. I'd be disappointed if they spent episodes of YM plotting and building up his Big Coup but then it ended so quickly. So much for being a villain. Lol I Iooove how badass the WM Corps were this episode. <3


Gaaaaaah the king needs to get out of his head, open his eyes, and look at what's really happening!! I can't believe no one informed him of how the coup actually started?? And just believed the evil dowager?? Grrrrr

wow, i love a show where the girl saved our hero so many times!  in a badass way using her awesome bow and arrows....  totally different from shows where hero always saved damsel in distress. :w00t:


and i'm happy that amidst all the fighting, our lovebirds had sweet interactions and quick popo :wub:

A series of the kings stupidity 




When it finally seemed like ND has successfully repressed the coup, the king appears. 

With two potential conspiracy leaders in front of him (ND and YM), King raises his sword at his own son :rage:

Believes the dowager (who is supposed to also be his enemy), refuses to believe his sons words and feelings (despite ND's super long monologue), calls ND a traitor and demands his arrest, then proceeds to escape to 'safety' with YM, the guy who conspired against him...

 They could have ended the story in 15 ep. They most likely needed the fight scenes to fill up air time so they have some plot left for next week.
There isn't much more they can do  at this point, except resolving who will gain the seat of the King, the fate of the person who doesn't and what will happen to leads' relationship.

I've got headache, literally. My stream link was blur and low quality. And a whole episode was all abt fighting. My eyes are dizzy now.  

It was dragged too long. There're many parts to cool down but they turn out dilute and unnecessary. People - Queen, Jung, Hwang, MW corp, Dong Joo arc - randomly jumps to the scenes like saviors but the situation did not change. And the king came back again with his manic-aka-throne-addiction-aka-son-phobia in the end... It was like a sailing-with-the-wind fight. Everything repeats. No end, no change, no win.

Ssok and the Muwuldan making their long-awaited comeback!

Ssok finishing off Dan Oh!

YJ, Hwangsabu all surviving the battle.

Dongju aka Legolas (never-ending supply of arrows and always appearing in the nick of time to save the day).

The nifty swordfight between Nokdu and Dan Oh.

Dongju is still the MVP of tonight's episode.




The pacing. Swords, arrows and bloodshed took up way too much airtime in today's episode, so it felt like being on a roller-coaster for an hour.




Gwanghae. He doesn't deserve the "I survived" twist of the episode. He doesn't deserve the Queen, his long-lost son, his throne, his life...his predisposition to believing the stories spun by the most suspicious characters in the plot is unrivalled.




How long more do they need to finish off the sordid palace politics? We only have one final episode... Hope episode 16 can be extended in length so that there is enough time to deal with "happily ever after"!
