Episode 13 - 14 synopsis/recap/summary

After Chief Im breathes his final heroic moment as the Prince's body guard, Prince Sado charges ragingly after Chun.

He holds his own (for a good 3 minute) during the fight and even manages to cut Chun's hand. However, he's not the winner of this battle and whispers, "You can kill me, but my northern expedition dream will live on forever." Chun lays down Sado's destiny, "And this day shall be your memorial every year."

In his last moment, Prince Sado leans against a tree and looks up at the beautiful sky as if staring off to a faraway dream. When he closes his eyes, Ji Sun, who is heading up to the forest with Jin Ju, feels stabbing pain in her heart. Sigh. I expected Prince Sado's death weeks ago but seeing him actually dying is tragic and commendable. He's finally able to step up to his place and fights for his loyal subjects, Chief Im and many others. It's a better option than perishing in a box, according to history.

Chun walks off after he's finished Prince Sado and leaves it to Yeo Woon to "clean" up the corpse. Yeo Woon kneels and begs forgiveness tearfully. Oh boy, this gotta stop. You can't just go around killing people and asking for forgiveness. Dong Soo reaches this scene and sobs for Crown Prince's lost life.

Afterwards, he faces Yeo Woon and asks why he killed them. "How could you? Have you gone insane?" Yeo Woo stoicly replies it's his fate, there's no way out. Dong Soo proceeds to knock Yeo Woon to the ground and exclaims that he's going to kill him.

Jin Ju and Ji Sun meets Chun and his underling during their way up and Jin Ju lures them away from Ji Sun by running idiotically to the other direction. Chun's man follows her.

Dong Soo draws out his sword but Yeo Woon flicks sand in Dong Soo's face to buy him some leeway. With his vision still fuzzy, Dong Soo lunges forward....his sword stabbing into Ji Sun, who is standing right behind Yeo Woon, trying to prevent him from slashing Dong Soo. Crap! Girl!

Dong Soo rushes her down the forest but Ji Sun insists to go back to Prince Sado. Having no other choice, Dong Soo brings her back and she leans against the Crown Prince, asking him to take her along.

Meanwhile, Chun's man is searching for Jin Ju as she lowers herself in the tall flowers. Unfortunately, Dong Soo's cry catches her attention and she stands up immediately to locate his destination. Girl, he's not Simba from The Lion King, whose roar you must respond upon hearing. Pshhh. Now that she's exposed, Jin Ju is unconcerned of her own safety as she dazes out, dead worry about Dong Soo. Father Hwang appears and saves her, while having his identity noted by Chun's man. Bad! Bad!

Chun returns to check on Yeo Woon's progress. Dong Soo tries to battle it out with Chun but the man is quick to clamp his hands around Dong Soo's neck. Chun then realizes that Dong Soo is the same boy who caused bodily harm to him years ago and is elated, mostly at what the future holds. Not to be defeated, Dong Soo charges again and this time one punch sends him crumbling to the ground. Chun flings Ji Sun over his shoulder and leaves with Yeo Woon.

Sword Saint, Samo, Jin Gi, and Jin Ju get to the spot simultaneously. Sword Saint, you are ALWAYS late. To everything. Ji, who has been hiding behind a tree is found out by none other than Gwang Taek. She prays that he forgives her and also wants him to take her life. Gwang Taek shakes his head, killing Ji wouldn't solve anything so he only cuts a pearl adorned on her clothing off.

In the following days, Cho Rip exits the box, the King grieves over his son's death, the bad guys party nightly, and Dong Soo falls into depression. Sword Saint meets with Prince Sado's son, Yi San, and tells him to be careful in the future.

On Pig (Hong Dae Joo)'s side, he sends the assassin-hair man out to keep an eye on Yi San (who is protected by Sword Saint), while Bat is on a mission to kill Dong Soo. Pig also sends the book that Sword Saint has written about martial arts skills to Chun, hoping that he would use it wisely. Like before, Chun is offended and burns the book.

As for Jin Ju, she is determined to reunite with her mother. She inquires her dad about the pearl that he's kept throughout the years and the pearl that Sword Saint cut off from the strange ajumma (Ji). Father Jin Gi scoffs at her, saying that this pearl can be found everywhere in the markets. In the comfort of his room, Jin Gi reminisces the day when Ji dropped off her newborn baby with him. She has left without giving the baby a proper name. Jin Gi saw a black pearl lying on the table and decided to name the baby girl Jin Ju, to symbolize that she's a pearl in his hands. Aw. Beautiful name.

Everyone is fed up with Dong Soo's dazing period but no one can sober the poor boy because he doesn't even respond to beating. Jin Ju brings him to the river banks and decides to drown him so that his survival instincts kick in. However, Cho Rip doesn't like the idea and stands in her way. During their struggle, they both fall into the river, cracking a small smile from Dong Soo. When they're busy with chasing each other around, Bat approaches Dong Soo. He wields his sword to Dong Soo's neck and the boy only smiles. Unnaturally, Bat feels like doing a kind thing today so he lets Dong Soo off the hook. Odd. Very Odd.

That night Sword Saint comes back (Crown Prince's Heir has returned to the palace) and pummels Dong Soo repeatedly with a stick. Simultaneously, Yeo Woon is moving up the ranks at Hoksa Chorong. He's taking over Bat's position, as the new Human Lord (me guess since he's sitting next to Chun's seat).

Episode 14 Summary:

Sword Saint continues to beat Dong Soo. Jin Ju can't watch this anymore and makes up her mind to do something dangerous. She takes Dong Soo back to the same house where he saved her from the fire years ago. With Cho Rip guarding outside, Jin Ju locks the door and sets the inside on fire. Okay, I'm very touched but my girl, this is still a very dumb thing to do! She's a lost cause in this love triangle.

Sword Saint, Samo, Ji, and Cho Rip all wait expectantly outside. Ji wants to go in to save her daughter and Sword Saint is wide-eyed at the revelation. Luckily, before they move in to help, Dong Soo kicks the door down and carries Jin Ju outside. He calls her an idiot. Yah! You both are so shut up!

In a pavillion, Sword Saint mumbles, "Could Jin Ju's father be...." and Ji denies before any name is listed. I still think she's Sword Saint's daughter. Jin Ju is around the same age as Dong Soo and the adults kissed that night...heh. She leaves a letter behind for Jin Ju and asks Sword Saint to deliver it.

Back at Hoksa Chorong, Chun lets Ji Sun stab him to prove that her doing this doesn't change anything. If she can't kill the enemy, Ji Sun wants to follow Prince Sado by starving herself. Yeo Woon effectively changes her will at the mention of Dong Soo's unstable mentality. That does the trick but Ji Sun replies that she's no longer the person of this world.

Yeo Woon's new mission. He's going to protect the Book of War and Ji Sun and presents them to the Qing Emperor.

Uopn waking up, the first thing that comes to Dong Soo's mind is Ji Sun's whereabouts. He stops Ji and demands to know where she is. Oh gosh, I'm so peeved at this boy right now. He's blindingly in love with Ji Sun and totally disregards what Jin Ju did for him! Arggg! Ji responds, "Forget about her. You won't be able to find her so don't bother searching." Defiantly, Dong Soo draws out his sword. Ji merely scoffs and tells him to put it away. He's in no condition to save or protect anyone. Dong Soo raises his arrogance up a few notches and says she better takes those words back. Heck to the no, buddy. Dong Soo swipes and in one move, Ji's sword is at his neck. Oh gosh, I'm so giddy at this scene. Someone finally puts this boy and his ego in line!!

Inside the room, Hwang Jin Gi reveals his background story to a room of curious ears. Twenty years ago, he was Hoksa Chorong's training captain and also Ga Ok's (Ji) body guard. Turns out that Ga Ok is the previous Sky Lord's daughter. Wouldn't that make Jin Ju the direct successor of Hoksa Chorong? o.o When Ji found out that she was pregnant, she requested for maternity a leave and Chun agreed, despite not knowing the reason behind.

When everyone leaves, Jin Ju confirms with her dad about Ji. Jin Gi doesn't have the heart to continue the lie and tells her the truth. She tearfully continues, "Then my father, are you not my father?" Aw, this is heart-breaking. A gigantic part of me wishes he would nod immediately. Instead he cries and acknowledges her doubts and finally mumbles, "I'm your father. The pirate Hwang Jin Gi, is your father." Jin Ju replies with a smile, "Me too, I will forever be your daughter." What am I going to do when someone takes his life away?! T_T

Yeo Woon's speedy rank climbing is upsetting a Chun's follower (don't know his name, picture above, so let's call him Traitor). He's displeased at Chun's blatant favoritism of Woon and opts to have a chat with Bat, who is devising a dark plan to send Sky Lord (Chun) to hell. The Traitor even manages to steal Sky Lord's seal. *gulps*

Chun names Yeo Woon as his successor. Yeo Woon agrees with one request: Spare Ji Sun's life. No can do. She must be sent to the Qing Emperor.

Hwang Jin Gi and Jin Ju are going back to their hideout. Dong Soo finally returns and everyone scoots inside so they have some time alone. Dong Soo sounds really indifferent to me when he tells her to hurry home. She's disappointed at his attitude and heads for the door. Dong Soo grabs her wrist and embraces her. "Thank-you. Those are words I've always wanted to say." Somehow, I feel like this scene is a tease to my vulnerable DSxJJ ship. Writers, don't toy with me. Don't play with Jin Ju's feeling. How far are you going to lead her? Pshh!

Father Jin Gi brings Jin Ju to the river where Ji is waiting. Mother and daughter, finally, reunites in tears.

Sword Saint and Samo plan to save Ji Sun at the dock. They agree to keep this away from Dong Soo. Voila, he's listening to them outside the door. You guys are not discreet at ALL. Fail!

The trip back to Qing is tomorrow and the Qing Emissary is upset that throughout his stay in Joseon, he's never met Sky Lord. Bat drops by with a fake letter (stamped using the stolen seal from Chun). Bat lies that Chun plans to push the responsibility of losing the Book of War to the Qing Emissary by hijacking the book half-way of the trip.

Everyone, and I mean it, heads to the dock. The Qing Emissary wants to personally confirm the map on her back and demands that Ji Sun strip in front of him. Thinking quickly, Yeo Woon cuts a gap on her back to reveal a small section.

Ji Sun heads to the ship. Mid-way, the Traitor holds her hostage and asks for the Book of War (as his plan with Bat). The Qing Emissary hands it over without putting up a fight. Then a sword comes flying at the Traitor, injuring him. It's Bat and he slices the Traitor man with no mercy. Dang, so Bat uses the traitor to prove his story to the Qing Emissary, and in turn gaining his trust.

They proceed to the ship but is again met with hardship - this time in the form of Baek Dong Soo. Ji Sun advises him to leave, it's her fate and there's nothing they could do to change it. Dong Soo tells her to cut the crap and stop using fate as a excuse to be a victim.
