(Episode 9) I must see the King Are you crazy? Do you think the king is some hermit who lives in a country village? Don't even say that! The executioner's blade may end up falling! If I want to meet the king what must I do? Crazy girl Is there no way? Right It isn't completely impossible to do it All you have to do is cross over the palace wall and get caught and killed by royal guards Or get killed by the king's silent and invisible bodyguards If you become a ghost you could have an audience with the king If you're a ghost even if you cross over the palace wall nobody would know Officer Lee! The first time I saw you was when I was seven years old My father had died and after having been separated from my mother and brother I was a reckless child who did not know what sadness was On that day in the heavy pouring rain you were looking at me After that day you were my father my mother and my brother The time I have spent with you up to now is everything that I can remember in my life If I lose you when you mean that much to me how could I continue to live? My lord Like you said I should not have gone to the mountain camp in the first place If I had not gone I would not have met the rebel leader Your life was at stake but my heart would not let me kill that man I do not understand it That pains me more than dying The only way I can cleanse my heart is to do this This stupid girl will die like this In laying down my life I wish for you to reach your goals in life Young master The destined meeting we had please forget about it Young master Withdraw - Is she still breathing? - Yes.
Who are you? He asked you who you are Left Left Police Bureau damo Jang Chae-Ohk I would like an audience with Your Highness Damo? Who ordered you to assassinate me? I- I had something to tell Your Majesty You risked your life to tell me something? A girl? All by yourself? What in heaven's name is it? Can you not see that he is asking you a question? Answer him quickly! Please tell your attendents to stand back Everyone withdraw It is all right He is no different than my own limbs Please command that this case will be entrusted to the Left Police Bureau Chief and Commander Hwangbo Yoon Please issue that command I will tell you Your Highness! Your royal power is in danger! Tell me I am listening All the credit for discovering this should go to the Police Chief and the Commander Hwangbo Yoon Please issue the command Did not I tell you to tell me?! The counterfeiting organization is not a simple band of rebels They have many trained soldiers and are armed with weapons They intend on raising an insurrection! They used counterfeit money to reinforce their armament and laid a trap to eliminate the Training General guarding the capital city It was all art of a conspiracy Who else knows about this? No one No one knows What did you say your name was? Well she's not here or at the Police Bureau! Where are you saying she went?! You idiot Why are you asking that here? Officer Lee! What? Officer Lee? You idiot Are you blind? Officer Lee Officer Lee, don't do this Don't do this! Stop it I'll beat you senseless if you try to pull rank one more time! Do you have any job skills? Don't be foolish.
Let's just go My goodness You don't have any sympathy! How was I able to live with such a heartless woman? Man! I have the sense of duty to stay your husband Isn't it proper to at least act like you're concerned? Am I'm acting like this because my future's so comfortable? Those people saved us We aren't being chased anymore How can we just watch them get beheaded? That image will weigh on me for the rest of my life! How can we just watch it?! Foolish woman Has there been a funeral yet?! Huh?! Why are you already making a fuss? Stop crying Who's there?! It's Chae-Ohk, isn't it? Oh my gosh! Chae-Ohk! Brother! Chae-Ohk! Oh my gosh! Brother! Please wake up! Brother! Come on! Hurry and come out! Please come out! Ohk! Ohk! Chae-Ohk! Wake up! Open your eyes! My lord Yeah It's me Who is it? Who did this to you? I met the King What are you saying? You crazy girl! Did you really cross over the palace wall? Chae-Ohk! Chae-Ohk! Chae-Ohk! Ohk! Ohk! Chae-Ohk! Chae-Ohk! Chae-Ohk! The counterfeiting organization is not a simple band of rebels They used counterfeit money to reinforce their armament and laid a trap to eliminate the Training General guarding the capital city You may leave Heung-Bok Heung-Bok! Yes, Your Highness? What should I do? You're the only person I can talk to Your Majesty You must boost your sincerity There are many people behind me Speak your thoughts Since they were able to eliminate the Training General we know that they are very thorough men Someone must be directing their every move Someone among our inner counsels? I believe so Do you think the Police Chief is also caught in their trap? The Training General Jung Hong-Du and the Police Chief Joh Seh-Ook are the axis of Hansung's defense untainted by political factions Through his mistake we lost the Training General How can I not punish him for that? But then our enemies also gain an advantage The Training General who would serve you even in death would not want that either The Police Chief lost his best friend and lost his only son Your Highness Your royal authority is at stake! How is she? Her pulse isn't coming back You jerk! For a man who calls himself a doctor is that all you can say? At least try acupuncture, idiot! My lord! If she's not in the condition to even take some life-saving medicine or take acupuncture then she's no different from a corpse Then are you saying we have to watch her die like this? How can this Sir Please save our Chae-Ohk! Please save her! Please! There is nothing I can do Use some medicine If she's no different from a corpse like you say then use medicine or acupuncture as much as you like! M- my lord! It is a good day to die This is not the execution grounds We brought them Leave them here Go back to the Police Bureau Who are you? The two of you are already dead While holding out for the remainder of your life do not concern yourself with your own safety but fulfill the command Stop! Is it a royal command? Did she call herself Chae-Ohk? You have appointed a fine subordinate However She was a reckless girl A golden belt Your Highness! Sir! There is a note Though you swore that you would lay down your life I would be alone without your services The people behind the counterfeit money are the conspirators Secretly examine the inner royal advisers and discover their true character so you may reassure your king Your Highness! Your Highness! Your Highness You reinstated the criminal who made the innocent Training General commit suicide There is no precedent for this! This shakes the solidity of the national laws! Not only did he lose the counterfeiting ring he also caused the annihilation of the raid soldiers both of which should be capitally punished but acquiting him without consulting a minister is something that must not happen! The suicide of the Training General happened during his investigation And the raid happened while the Police Chief was in prison He's not fully responsible Your Highness However He was close friends with the Training General and the leader of the raid's father I want to give him another chance Your Highness! I gave that command after careful deliberation! Do not argue any longer Did you Did you say she trespassed the palace? I said foolish words to her She lost her mind Without going insane how could anyone do that in a proper state of mind? What did you command Chae-Ohk to do? Dang That's why I kept telling her to leave the Police Bureau I am very sorry She has many external wounds but since her internal wounds are so serious I can no longer However, maybe the King's personal physician could try The royal physician was ordered to treat an ill magistrate so he went to that estate Are you the royal physician? Who are you? I am the commander of the Left Police Bureau, Hwangbo Yoon What business do I have with the police? It is not police business I have a subordinate who's life is hanging in a balance Please save her, Doctor What are you talking about? How can you ask me to examine a subordinate at the Police Bureau? If someone heard about this, you would be dead Get out of here right now! Let us go, lord Only you can save her I will submit to whatever you ask Please save this patient! I understand how you feel but without an order from the King I cannot treat anyone personally Please find another doctor She is in such a serious condition that other doctors gave up Please have sympathy and please make an exception! I am sorry If you really cannot do it I will kill the two of you here and I will kill myself Royal doctor! Though it is my duty to examine the king's body but in dealing with one's life I am no different from any village doctor Saving a patient's life gives me the same happiness as saving my own life I will not forget the debt I owe to you Debt? I have saved countless lives, but this is the first time I've seen someone with all of her spirit lines cut Seeing your sincerity for the patient I truly wanted to save her Does that mean she will die? You cannot say that she is alive right now I am sorry What should we do? My lord We cannot send her away like that We cannot send Chae-Ohk away like that, my lord My lord, my lord We cannot send her away no matter what! You can't go! Where are you going to take her? I would like to go too I wanna go too! I wanna go! My lord! I will accompany you If I do not return with my own feet there is no need to search for me I want to go too! I wanna go! My lord! Ohk! Monk There has still been no word?! I am sorry I should have followed him I am checking out every place he could have gone.
- Keep your mouth shut No need to put so much effort into finding him From now on, I will personally direct everything and receive all reports Sir Officer Lee, disguise yourself as a peddler and go to every public social gathering and locate Jang Sung-Baek! Yes, sir! Did you just arrive? How did it go? In Hwang-He province, a small magistrate's estate was attacked.
A portion of the taxes was given to the people the other portion was taken by Jang Sung-Baek's group which is very popular Those scum He's trying to win over the people How about the mountain camp? We looked around Jang-Soo mountain and Myul-Ahk mountain near the village Are you saying you didn't find them? I am sorry That's enough They're not rash enough to attack a guard station They're not easy men to catch We'll take an hour break before moving on Eat your rice balls and rest Yes, sir! Hold onto this Where are you going, sir? My lord! Leave him alone This is where all the raid soldiers were massacred He is probably going to pay his respects Hmm They're all lepers I clearly saw counterfeit coins being made from molds How far is it from Jang Sung-Baek's old camp? Only two mountain summits It is in a village of lepers that no one approaches Who would have imagined? There is no mistaking that it is Jang Sung-Baek's forge! Who knows about this? I did not tell anyone and rode here as fast as possible To the outside of the capital city bring one group of the elite forces to stand by If we capture those people, we can determine where Jang Sung-Baek moved his mountain camp And we can immediately assault the place Only one group of elite forces? Capturing Jang Sung-Baek is not the problem Do NOT kill anyone on the raid Only take prisoners and recover the coin molds Pardon? We have to move so even a mouse or a bird doesn't know it! The Police Chief is personally leading troops to the furnace village What should we do? My lord! Get rid of the village Are you saying to kill everyone? Don't they all already have leprosy? Send Kato Masayuki (Japanese guy) If it's them they'll arrive before the troops Jang Sung-Baek will not sit still Inform Boss Jang My lord! that the troops will get there soon What message is it? We're going to the furnace village Bring one hundred swords Yes, my lord? Why the furnace village so suddenly? I told you to bring your swords! You scoundrels! Who are you?! There is no one left alive I cannot find any evidence of counterfeit coins in the forge either Tell the others and bury the corpses And burn the village This is not his sword It is a foreign sword They have bloodshot eyes looking for you and you came all the way here? Are you crazy? I must see our lord What did you say? Don't you know that the police are carefully watching the royal court? Didn't I say I must see him? The first time I saw you was when I was seven years old My father had died and after having been separated from my mother and brother I was a reckless child who did not know what sadness was On that day in the heavy pouring rain you were looking at me After that day you were my father my mother and my brother The time I have spent with you up to now is everything that I can remember in my life If I lose you when you mean that much to me how could I continue to live? My lord Like you said I should not have gone to the mountain camp in the first place If I had not gone I would not have met the rebel leader Your life was at stake but my heart would not let me kill that man I do not understand it That pains me more than dying The only way I can cleanse my heart is to do this This stupid girl will die like this In laying down my life I wish for you to reach your goals in life Young master The destined meeting we had please forget about it Young master I cannot send you like this I still have not said any of the feelings in my heart Chae-Ohk I'm here Didn't you say you feel when you are breathing in each moment? After hearing that do you know how hard my heart was racing? I'm not even as good as a pig Half noble blood who left a mother whose hands and feet were swollen from labor What drive would I have had to live? I was the same Since you were there in each moment I could feel that I was breathing I didn't even tell you that and fifteen years have gone by Chae-Ohk don't go I still haven't done anything for you, Chae-Ohk Can you hear me? Chae-Ohk Don't go, Chae-Ohk! Chae-Ohk! Chae-Ohk! Don't go, Chae-Ohk! This is Boss Jang Have you been well? I heard the news It was truly a horrible thing It was not government troops Do you think I ordered it? Is that why you wanted to see me? This is a sword of the men hiding all around us right now The furnace village people with leprosy and turn their back on the world but they spilled blood and sweat for us! Did you see me as someone so disgusting that I would massacre people like that? Well it is the same as if I had killed them If I had known a little earlier this would not have happened Is heaven abandoning us? This is all because of my unworthiness Too many brothers have died to blame this on unworthiness And that sword was there Come out! Everyone come out! Ask if it is their sword Is it yours? Yes! Yoda! Yes, sir! Is this the short sword you lost? Is it yours? Yes What happened? When I went to transport the counterfeit coins I lost it in the mountains What are they saying? He says it was lost when they were transporting counterfeit coins from the furnace village to Hansung I will prove it with my life He says he is innocent They are all helping us Must everyone split their stomachs so you will believe it? Why didn't the government troops take a single prisoner and kill everyone? It could be the police's revenge for the massacre of the raid soldiers Otherwise, how could they have acted without my, the Minister of Defense's, knowledge? I will make them regret it Before I find the murderers I will not return to the mountain camp! Go back! Sharpen your sword with that sadness and rage The day for you to raise your sword is not far off! I will handle the rest myself He is a man who has given his service for ten years! There are many men other than you who I can pay thousands of gold pieces to But the only man in all of Korea who can grasp the hearts of the people is Jang Sung-Baek! I put all of my spirit into her but she still won't breathe Does she have to lay like this for the rest of her life? Hit her with a finishing blow! Are you saying I should kill her? There are two possible outcomes She will either die or her spiritual energy will be revived Sir Do you want her to lay silent for her whole life? If it's Chae-Ohk if something bad happens to her, she would want it to be by your hand Decide You must not put any bias in your hands The protective spiritual energy only comes out when one is put in danger Cast aside any thoughts of saving her You must kill her You must definitely kill her!
