After Ha Sun showed the qualifications for a good king and as real king Lee Hun’s conditions worsened, Lee Kyu poisoned Lee Hun and began creating a new world with Ha Sun. During this process, Lee Kyu transformed from a strict teacher to a reliable partner and moved viewers by helping to change the fearless clown into a sage king.

Joo Ho Gul became completely smitten by Ha Sun after the fake king made changes such as getting rid of the system that only favored the noble class. Jang Moo Young, who knows that Ha Sun is a clown, adds a comical twist to the story by denying his positive feelings for him.
Ha Sun and Dae Bi (Jang Young Nam)

Lee Gyu and Shin Chi Soo (Kwon Hae Hyo)
Royal secretary Lee Gyu and disloyal subject Shin Chi Soo’s relationship has been described as “mousetrap chemistry” because one of them is trying to hide Ha Sun’s identity while the other is trying to investigate it. The highlight of these two are the biting remarks they have for one another. When Shin Chi Soo asked, “What are you doing covering the Crown Prince’s eyes and ears?” Lee Gyu answered, “That’s what you used to do. I don’t do greedy things like hiding behind the Crown Prince and pocketing profits.”
Lee Gyu shot back by saying, “Since your mind is full of traitorous ideas, I guess you think other people are like you,” but Shin Chi Soo stated, “You’re the same kind as me” without blinking an eye. The two are locked in a tense fight and bring some fire to the drama.
