The ale's all gone!

Seize them all!

Stop at once!

His Majesty's commands, sir


Those who lured the crown prince

to liquor and women must


I'll talk to Father myself

So, stop!

I can't, sir

I'm the crown prince!


Why punish blameless servants?

You fool!

How dare you!

Away at once!

Why, Father! Why!

The future king mustn't

drink with girls day and night!

Can't the crown prince play?

When you enjoy having

dozens of concubines!

Why can't I?

You dare cross the line?

What line?


I crossed it

I see all the royal subjects

are here!

Sir! How's everything with you?

How about some of

my special ale?

Go on!

Take it!

How dare you!

He even did a double-side kick


It's the first time since he broke

Sir Kang's ribs 10 years ago

Are you listening, sir?

So what?

It's not the first time

Father did that to him

You should eat it

for your health, sir

You eat it

- Meat

- Yes, sir

It's serious this time, sir!

It has nothing to do

with me

I'm the third son

Father leaves me be

to do whatever I want

But if I was the crown prince

Listen carefully to my command

I'll dethrone Yang-nyeong

and you, Chung-yeong,

shall be the new crown prince!


You shall be

the king of this nation!


Your Majesty!

Your Majesty!

Dethroning the eldest

could cause calamity, sire

I earnestly ask that

you reconsider, sire

After such behavior

from Yang-nyeong?

Chung-nyeong is infatuated

with books

He may have much knowledge

but he cannot rule

with just that, sire


All those with Minister Hwang

to the right

If not, stand to the left


What's taking you?

Make your decisions!

Make your choices like men!

Why you!

Anything else to say?

Chung-nyeong lacks strength

and bravery to be king, sire

That is untrue, sire

He can train to be stronger

and with his intelligence

he shall be a great king

in Joseon's history

Yes, he can be stronger

with training

See to it, Minister Young

Yes, Your Majesty!

But, Your Majesty

Chung-nyeong does not even

like to move, sire!

Were you promised something

by Yang-nyeong?

I am just thinking of

the court's future, sire

Your Majesty took the throne

over 4 older brothers

Will you make that

a tradition, sire?

That old fool has gone mad!

If the first son can't,

the second son should be crowned

So, why should I become

the crown prince?

- Save us, merciful Buddha

- Please

help me!

You can't be a monk!

- Brother

- Brother?

Brother, you say?

I'm the king's brother in life

and Buddha's brother

in death?

No crown prince or king,

but just a brother?

Is that it?

Whatever do you mean?

I will convince Father

- Of what?

- Pardon?

Father's word is law here

in Joseon

What can you do!

Father used this

to seize the throne

Do you see!

Our uncles' blood stains?

- Save us, merciful Buddha

- Quiet!

I don't want to be king!

I'd rather die!

Then, die

Save us, merciful Buddha

Shut up, fool!

- Please!

- Can't die?

Then, ask this sword

if you should be king

or not

- What do you want me to do?

- Save us, merciful Buddha

A monk must leave

if he hates the temple

Leave, I say. Leave


Buy it before it's gone

I'll come next time

I doubt it'll still be here

- How pretty

- Step aside

Very pretty

Cherry lips

Stop it!


Why go this far

for a mere slave?

I'm dying here!

Let's settle with this

What have you to gain

by killing a slave, sir?

- Aide?

- Yes, sir!

Release him

Ow! I'm dying!

Stop it and get up

Ow! My buttocks!

Get up or I won't

spoon feed you

But, Lady Su-yeon?
