In episode 17 and episode 18 of the K-drama, Ruler: Master of the Mask, the Chief of the Peddlers a.k.a. the Crown Prince (Yoo Seung Hoo) will not let go of Ga Eun (Kim So Hyun). On the other hand, Hwa Gun (Yoon So Hee) will try to get the Crown Prince for herself.
In the teaser, the Crown Prince says that he plans on telling Ga Eun the truth before she leaves. Perhaps he will know about her becoming a court lady. Otherwise, he might let her know that he is the real Crown Prince. With this, he might just reveal to her the real reason why her father was executed.
Later on, the two of them are seen walking together. She is holding a bouquet of flowers. They might just go to her father’s grave to visit.
Meanwhile, Hwa Gun tells her grandfather Dae Mok that she is in love with the Peddler Chief. She might have learned that her grandfather plans on killing the Peddler Chief. However, he asks what she can give in return for sparing his life. What she will answer to this remains to be seen in the next episodes.
Back to Ga Eun and the Crown Prince, the latter holds the former’s hand. In the background, she asks what took him so long to return. This refers to the time they were apart for five long years. With this, Hwa Gun sees them. Naturally, she looks jealous of Ga Eun — as always.
Then the lovers are seen walking together. The Crown Prince a.ka. Chun Soo says that he will never leave from her side.
In theory, Ga Eun will not readily tell the Chun Soo that she is going to become a court lady. Although commoner Lee Sun (Kim Myung Soo) who is now the king will be delighted to have her by his side, he might struggle just to protect her.
