In Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth (a.k.a. Hwarang: The Beginning) episode 11, viewers will be grasping the edge of their seats. The episode promo/teaser showed that Ban Ryu’s (Do Ji Han) ex-ally would report and give to his adoptive father the bracelet of the King (Park Hyung Sik) that he found in the Hwarang House.
The Queen’s enemies have found out that the King is hiding in the Hwarang House. They are planning to hunt him down, as usual. This is the reason why King Jinheung’s mother is hiding him and kills everyone who sees his face.
Meanwhile, Ah Ro (Go Ara) is seen lying down in the bed beside Sun Woo, who seemed to be sleeping again perhaps because of his illness. Then the next scene showed the King and Sun Woo having a small fight because of Ah Ro. Perhaps the King witnessed Sun Woo’s ill treatment to Ah Ro, so that he would remain as a brother to her just like her father wants for him to do.
Later, the Queen ordered for the Hwarang to show off their martial arts skills and would have a fight to the death. This would bring tension for all the Hwarang warriors when they learn about this.
Also, Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth (a.k.a. Hwarang: The Beginning) episode 11 showed the King saying that he likes Sun Woo but he likes his sister more. It is undeniable that even with some of their differences and personal conflicts, the King and Sun Woo can be the best of friends.
The next scene is back to the Queen, who orders Princess Sook Myung to get rid of Ah Ro. It is because she already saw the face of her son and could be a liability to their enemies. And before the promo ended, it shows Princess Sook Myung aiming her arrow at the unsuspecting Ah Ro. This time, it might be Sun Woo who is going to save her.
