Things take a nasty turn and tears are shed. The latest episode where Court Lady Oh sacrificed herself is nothing short of beautiful. Loyalties and feelings are tested against reality and in this important moment is where everyone shows their true colors and their choices.
Will this be the turning point in the drama?
There are a couple of things which happened, such as 8th prince turning his back on Hae Soo and Court Lady Oh’s death. I would expect Hae Soo to finally understand that life is the palace is not as easy as it may seem. Court Lady Oh’s death is more than enough reason for her to finally learn the hard way that every step in the palace is like walking on thin ice.
It doesn’t matter how sincere, kind or loyal you are. It doesn’t matter what kind of person you are, as long as you are living in the palace, anything and anyone could be used against you. One wrong move, even if it isn’t yours, could mean death. And sometimes, having unnecessary attention can bring death as well.
