The romantic storyline is grabbing attentions of the viewers despite the fact the drama is set in the heavy and intense backdrop of establishment of the Joseon Dynasty. On November 16, the “Six Flying Dragons” team unveiled romantic still cuts between the two leading actors from the upcoming episode sending the fans of the drama into a frenzy.
In the released still cuts, Lee Bang Won and Boon Yi are seen in an embrace. Lee Bang Won clearly shows the torture he had to endure in episodes 11 and 12 wearing shabby clothes with scars and cuts on his face. But he gazes deeply into Boon Yi’s eyes and embraces her. Boon Yi is caught by surprise and is startled by Lee Bang Won’s sudden embrace. Confusion and worry is clearly conveyed in her facial expression.
Until this moment, the two characters always had abrasive encounters with each other. At times, they bit or tied each other with ropes. It’s not the typical way you’d expect two lovers to treat one another. So, this unexpected display of affection heightens viewers’ curiosities in hopes of a romance between them.
In episodes 11 and 12, Lee Bang Won was tortured by the military thanks to Lee In Gyum’s (Choi Jong Won) scheme. Boon Yi does everything in her power to release Lee Bang Won. She even visits Lee Bang Won’s jail cell where he asks her if she likes him.
At the end of episode 12, Lee Bang Won is released from jail and fans anticipate more intimate encounters between the two characters as it is true that one can fall in love with someone who stays by their side in a critical situation. With Lee Bang Won’s release from jail, it will be the turning point of six dragons moving toward establishing a nation.
