Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth Episode 9 Recap: Ahn Ah Ro Discovers Sun Woo is not her Real Brother and Ji Dwi is King Jinheung

In Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth (Hwarang: The Beginning) episode 9, it showed how Ahn Ah Ro (Go Ara) was so disappointed in Sun Woo (Park Seo Joon) for not being her real brother. She also liked the idea but was disgusted by herself.

Kim Ji Dwi, the incognito King (Park Hyung Sik), found Ah Ro crying and tried to comfort her. He said that he would kill whoever that made her cry. However, she said that it was because of herself. And yet, he knew better.

Meanwhile, the Queen wanted to know if she could trust the Hwarang Chief (Sung Dong-Il). Therefore, she decided to send Princess Sook Myung to the Hwarang House. He had no choice but to accept it.

The princess was out, exploring. Then Sun Woo was there to save her from a poisonous snake. But she got angry when he didn’t kill it. He merely said that it wasn’t the fault of the snake to be born with poison and walked away.

On the other hand, the King still courted Ah Ro. But her mind was filled with Sun Woo. She even asked his real name but he said that Sun Woo was the only name he had. She was also seen with her friend Soo Yeon (Lee Da In), telling the latter that he is not her brother.

Later, the people are seen preparing for the Thanksgiving Festival while the Hwarang warriors were busy practicing their performance. Both Sun Woo and Ji Dwi asked Ah Ro to come and see their performance, which she had no plans of doing. But later, she was forced to come.

It was then revealed that Ban Ryu and Ji Dwi were nowhere to be found. Ah Ro was looking for them. Then she accidentally found out that Ji Dwi is the King but the Queen’s bodyguard found her and brought her to the Queen later on. On the other hand, Sun Woo and a fellow Hwarang discovered that their instruments were all broken.

Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth (Hwarang: The Beginning) episode 9 ended with the Queen raising the sword to cut Ah Ro’s neck while she is unconscious.
