Previously on episodes seven and eight, Song In (Oh Min Suk) became suspicious of Eun San, who knows the existence of Moo Seok (Park Young Woon), the culprit behind the “Bokjeonjang case” he had devised. At this, Song In spread false rumors that someone from Wang Won and Wang Rin’s side was killing the witnesses of the case.
The still below shows Eun San being falsely charged with a crime and becoming surrounded by royal soldiers.
Other stills (see featured image) show what happens next when Wang Won and Wang Rin come to the rescue of Eun San, who is being violently interrogated. Wang Rin looks like he’s about to shed tears as he touches Eun San’s bleeding lips, and Wang Won has an angry and flustered expression on his face. These new stills suggest that their love triangle will intensify further in the upcoming episodes.
Episodes nine and ten will air on July 31 at 10 p.m. KST.
