After M grabs Wol and asks do you recognize me. The other guard asks who M is and orders others to pull him off and M yells at them: whose body are you daring to lay hands on. M identifies himself as the prince. The guards back off, so M asks Wol again: do you know who I am? he starts to say where they met but N suddenly shows up and asks M to let go of wol’s hand. N asks the guards to hurry and take Wol away. M calls out “wait a minute” as the guards take wol away to H. N blocks M’s path. M: whose path are you blocking right now?
Starts from when H tells wol to put to sleep his troubles. Answer me. Can you do that. Wol says how she will do everything she can. He orders her to lift her face. She does just as B opens the door and sees H staring at Wol.
Starts from when Wol touched Hwon’s forehead and he woke up. After he flips her on her back, Hwon asks who are you. who are you to dare to be here. answer me - what is your identity. He orders for candles to be brought in and the room to be lit brightly. He stares at Wol’s face and asks why are you here?
On the docks S and YW see N and Jansil off. N tells YW to go back now. YW uncovers her head and says: I wanted to go with you and held back so please dont stop me from seeing you off too. N covers her face again. YW: why are you doing that? N says if by any chance while I am gone. strangers come-be sure to avoid them. YW: are guests coming to the home today? N: no matter what. You must not put them in your heart. and must not form any ties. do you understand? Jansil says the boat is coming in.
After HS tells H how YW passed away in her father’s arms like she was sleeping, H staggers outside and guards stop him.
H’s voice says how the king is the sun and the wife the moon so he gave the pin the name: the moon that embraces the sun. he calls out her name
YW is being trained to bow properly so that the candle lights do not flicker –very calmly and quietly move your body but she stumbles and the light does flicker. Then she is told how she needs to hold her head as she bows and not shake her head, but the hairpiece is heavy so she falters again
J remembers Ari’s words about the one who will change the fate of the sun and to protect the child so she can be safe. J says there are two moons. B asks YW what brings her to the palace - not for the princess right? YW asks the same thing back to B. J gets reminded that the queen dowager (H’s grandmother) is waiting. J goes inside but looks back at the two girls
Sometimes you know just that a drama is headed towards greatness straight from the word “go” or in this case, the minute you hear the names “KSH and JIW.” E1 delivered just like I had hoped and lived up to all of its expectations and parts of it made me have some major SKKS vibes. There are no guarantees when it comes to Kdramas for me – most are misses instead of hits. But I love these rare moments where everything comes into place perfectly and I couldn’t have selected a better group of child actors myself. This is going to be a redux of missing child actors from CYHMH all over again.
