accusation that geumwa is the one who really wanted haemosu dead. yoohwa is having trouble falling asleep worried about jumong,
and just then the king arrives. geumwa asks yoohwa why she isn't asleep and the king then asks if jumong's quitting prince
competition is because of haemosu. when yoohwa says nothing the king asks why she didn't tell him sooner that jumong found
out the truth saying jumong must be having a very difficult time. geumwa says he must meet jumong, and yoohwa replies jumong
has left buyeo for a while to figure things out.

the king to let him.

about jumong. sayong wonders if soseono knows why jumong quit the competition and left buyeo and soseono says she's not worried
even though he's not told her either since she belives he will tell her when the time is right.
sayong says he knows she's
curious too and soseono confesses she is very curious too but she's more worried that something big happened to jumong. sayong
then notices soseono's ring and comments that was not seen before. next wootae arrive and says cheolgan of han is headed toward

she knows the story of yeobuwui who helped jacho escaping toward jo nation from jin nation and how yeobuwui helped jacho return
to jin and become a king. soseono replies she knows the story, and daeso says what yeobuwui did was make an investment in
jacho and benefit from it.
