1
00:00:12,103 –> 00:00:15,534
Please breathe in deeply.
And, breathe out.

2
00:00:15,654 –> 00:00:17,579
Episode 18

3
00:00:19,853 –> 00:00:24,891
I’m operating on the abdomen without anesthesia
and I have to end that within 10 minutes.

4
00:00:25,419 –> 00:00:29,790
Please bite onto this.
Physician Jin.

5
00:00:30,082 –> 00:00:31,553
Yes?

6
00:00:33,555 –> 00:00:37,703
No matter what happens to me, you would

7
00:00:37,985 –> 00:00:43,002
have to save this baby without fail.
You would be safe too.

8
00:00:45,297 –> 00:00:48,238
Please bite onto this.

9
00:00:49,793 –> 00:00:55,165
I will start the cesarean surgery now.

10
00:01:02,311 –> 00:01:05,339
Ever since I came to Joseon,
I have performed a lot of surgeries.

11
00:01:05,756 –> 00:01:10,815
However, I hoped that I wouldn’t
have to operate on pregnant women.
It’s because two lives are

12
00:01:11,159 –> 00:01:15,762
at stake when for a one time operation.
I have to succeed

13
00:01:16,450 –> 00:01:19,319
no matter what.

14
00:01:28,027 –> 00:01:32,377
Madam, you can’t lose your consciousness.
Madam,

15
00:01:32,497 –> 00:01:35,934
please bear with it a little.

16
00:01:36,054 –> 00:01:40,899
I have to act as fast as possible
before the patient loses her consciousness.

17
00:01:43,832 –> 00:01:48,370
The pregnant woman wouldn’t be able to hold it out for
long. I don’t have time. I would have to open up
her abdomen vertically on her median line.
[Median line: the line that goes through the center
pole system of the front and back of the body.]

18
00:01:48,490 –> 00:01:52,052
I need to cut her skin, the subcutaneous fat and linea alba.
[Linea alba: From the pit to the belly button,
the body’s midline with a slight dent.]

19
00:01:52,172 –> 00:01:57,401
No matter what others say,
the Queen Dowager is my wife’s aunty.

20
00:01:57,734 –> 00:02:02,042
I can’t… I can’t betray her.
If so, are you saying that it’d be fine if the king

21
00:02:02,162 –> 00:02:05,005
and I are being forced to step down and return to the
period where AnDong Kim Family overrides the court?

22
00:02:05,125 –> 00:02:08,559
That’s stepping away from your loyalty towards the
Queen Dowager and betraying the country.

23
00:02:08,679 –> 00:02:12,627
I’m asking you not to request me of
something that I can’t shoulder.
Your wife is

24
00:02:12,747 –> 00:02:16,192
enduring the pain of having her skin
being cut right at this moment.
But, what about you?

25
00:02:16,312 –> 00:02:21,345
Until when are you going to be
just afraid of things, Teacher Lee?

26
00:02:25,028 –> 00:02:30,014
I will push the bladder to the bottom and
I would cut at the inner side of the womb with the scalpel.

27
00:02:30,338 –> 00:02:34,281
Thinly, so that the baby wouldn’t be hurt.
I would have to cut it bit by bit.

28
00:02:34,401 –> 00:02:37,087
A little more… Please bear with it a little more.

29
00:02:37,207 –> 00:02:41,904
Once I see the membrane, I’ll have to
use both hands to widen the opening.
Then, I have to cut on the amnion.
[Membrane: a noncellular film
that surrounds the lepra cell.]

30
00:02:42,024 –> 00:02:46,264
After I cut the opening widely, I would
put my hands into where the fetus is.
[Amnion: thin, tough, membranous sac
that encloses the embryo or fetus.]

31
00:02:46,384 –> 00:02:50,486
Madam, I’m able to see the baby now.

32
00:02:50,606 –> 00:02:55,274
Disregarding your royal status, as
a classical scholar, ask yourself.

33
00:02:55,394 –> 00:02:59,175
Would it be fine to act like you don’t
know when Joseon is in a deep shit?

34
00:02:59,295 –> 00:03:04,499
Are you the only one who’s a loyal subject?
Do you think that only you’re worried for the country?
Above all things,

35
00:03:04,619 –> 00:03:08,369
think about the baby that would be born soon.
Even after 10 or 20 years later,

36
00:03:08,489 –> 00:03:13,060
living at Joseon that the first vice-premier
and his gang still realms, what kind of
life would the child be living?

37
00:03:13,457 –> 00:03:17,567
I don’t have the mind to go and worry
about the far future of Joseon now.

38
00:03:17,687 –> 00:03:21,883
Please stop here.
Teacher Lee!

39
00:03:25,117 –> 00:03:27,787
I will help too.
Yes.

40
00:03:27,907 –> 00:03:30,622
I would give her anthestic the moment
the baby has been taken out.

41
00:03:30,742 –> 00:03:35,128
I will press on the top area of the womb. You would
have to take out the baby as quickly as possible.

42
00:03:35,248 –> 00:03:39,079
However, if the intestines were to
break when I take out the baby,
her blood vessels could break, so I have to be careful.

43
00:03:39,199 –> 00:03:42,803
Madam, just a little more, just a little more.

44
00:03:49,093 –> 00:03:52,243
The baby is out.

45
00:03:55,497 –> 00:03:59,690
I will cut the umbilical cord.

46
00:04:04,622 –> 00:04:08,742
But, isn’t the limbs of the baby
energyless and hanging down?

47
00:04:08,862 –> 00:04:11,048
And, it seems like the baby isn’t breathing too.

48
00:04:11,168 –> 00:04:14,761
The hands and legs seem that it is cyanoderma.
[Cyanoderma: a bluish discoloration of the skin,
secondary to insufficient oxygenation of the blood.]

49
00:04:14,881 –> 00:04:20,010
Don’t tell me it’s a state of suspended animation.
What are you doing? Give the baby to me quickly.

50
00:04:35,634 –> 00:04:39,879
The baby’s crying. The baby cried. The baby cried.

51
00:04:46,354 –> 00:04:50,297
Why are you looking at me like that?
I only followed what was written on the medical books.

52
00:04:50,417 –> 00:04:54,709
You’ve done a good job.
You’ve done a good job.

53
00:04:54,938 –> 00:04:58,289
Is the baby safe?
Yes,

54
00:04:58,409 –> 00:05:02,868
the baby’s healthy.
He’s a very healthy baby boy.

55
00:05:06,709 –> 00:05:10,454
Come, we have to give the patient anthestic first.
We have to take out the placenta

56
00:05:10,574 –> 00:05:17,004
and then perform suture.
Let’s do that. Let’s hurry up.
[Placenta: an organ that connects the developing
fetus to the uterine wall to allow nutrient uptake,
waste elimination, and gas exchange
via the mother’s blood supply]

57
00:05:31,800 –> 00:05:35,975
Is it a son?
Yes, he’s very good looking.

58
00:05:36,361 –> 00:05:40,356
This rascal, what an unfilial son.

59
00:05:40,476 –> 00:05:45,689
The baby can’t stand in the wind for too long.
Is that so? Aigoo…

60
00:05:51,760 –> 00:05:56,600
How did it go?
The anthestic has yet to wear off, so she’s still sleeping.

61
00:05:56,720 –> 00:06:01,084
Luckily, suture was smooth.
Thank you, Physician Jin.

62
00:06:01,204 –> 00:06:06,352
You saved my family line.
That’s what your wife did.

63
00:06:06,472 –> 00:06:11,575
She’s really someone very courageous.
But, there are things that you have to do in future.

64
00:06:12,087 –> 00:06:16,189
Me?
Yes. You have to use a cold towel and put it over
on your wife’s stomach to give her wet bath.

65
00:06:16,309 –> 00:06:19,506
And, please make the room cooling.

66
00:06:20,214 –> 00:06:23,927
Don’t I have to make her sweat a lot?
It’s the direct opposite.

67
00:06:24,047 –> 00:06:27,901
The room has to be cooling after giving birth and
you have to use a cold cloth to apply on her

68
00:06:28,021 –> 00:06:32,616
and you have to make her womb close up faster.
I got it.

69
00:06:33,057 –> 00:06:35,258
My wife.

70
00:06:38,575 –> 00:06:41,559
You’ve worked hard.
Why are you here?

71
00:06:41,679 –> 00:06:44,980
Can you… lend me a helping hand?

72
00:06:45,100 –> 00:06:48,794
So, what are you asking me to do?

73
00:06:48,914 –> 00:06:52,049
Didn’t you deliver Teacher Lee’s baby?
If you were to tell him something,

74
00:06:52,169 –> 00:06:56,733
you’d be able to make Teacher Lee change his mind.
Are you asking me to use the baby

75
00:06:56,853 –> 00:07:01,570
to threaten Teacher Lee?
It’s not threatening him, but placating.

76
00:07:01,690 –> 00:07:07,172
For the country and for me.
I’m sorry, but I can’t agree to it.

77
00:07:08,359 –> 00:07:12,855
Elder… Even if something has happened to me,

78
00:07:13,199 –> 00:07:18,133
I wouldn’t make sure of our friendship.
The friendship that I know is something like that.

79
00:07:18,571 –> 00:07:21,721
Physician Jin.

80
00:07:35,359 –> 00:07:39,197
Aigoo, look at me!

81
00:07:39,317 –> 00:07:43,662
I left the suture needle at Teacher Lee’s house.

82
00:07:43,782 –> 00:07:47,177
It’s here.
Oh! Oh! Right…

83
00:07:47,297 –> 00:07:51,441
Was it the antithetic bottle then?
I brought that with me.

84
00:07:51,561 –> 00:07:55,718
No, I left something behind.
I’m sure I left something behind.

85
00:07:55,838 –> 00:08:00,255
I have to go and check it out.
Don’t wait for me. Go on first the both of you.

86
00:08:00,375 –> 00:08:04,752
Go, go, go.
Physician Heo, it’s here…
Go!

87
00:08:12,712 –> 00:08:19,367
Kwang… Kwang…
A person can’t scratch his own back.
Why are you meddling with this?

88
00:08:19,940 –> 00:08:23,195
How lonesome am I, Heo Kwang.

89
00:08:23,315 –> 00:08:27,161
There isn’t anyone to go back with me.

90
00:08:28,580 –> 00:08:31,991
I have nowhere to go.
I have nowhere to go.

91
00:08:33,044 –> 00:08:36,674
I was very shocked at you today.

92
00:08:37,105 –> 00:08:41,100
It’s the first time I performed an obstetrics
surgery, so I was a little taken aback.

93
00:08:41,486 –> 00:08:45,324
If the emergency actions were a little later,
the baby would have suffocated to death.

94
00:08:45,721 –> 00:08:48,850
You’ve done a very good job.

95
00:08:48,970 –> 00:08:54,192
Didn’t you say that?
I am talented in medical skills.

96
00:08:54,786 –> 00:08:59,512
That’s right. I’m very good at judging people.

97
00:09:01,142 –> 00:09:07,453
I have this thinking suddenly.
If I hadn’t come to this place,

98
00:09:08,579 –> 00:09:11,990
and if I hadn’t met you,

99
00:09:12,110 –> 00:09:16,327
I had the thinking that if would
you be leading a happy

100
00:09:16,577 –> 00:09:20,823
and ordinary life?
It’s true it would be ordinary,

101
00:09:20,943 –> 00:09:23,722
but happy life is…

102
00:09:24,717 –> 00:09:30,193
That could be so. I might be leading
a happy life as the mother of a child.

103
00:09:30,965 –> 00:09:35,305
Have you seen the official?

104
00:09:35,743 –> 00:09:38,340
I saw him for a brief moment in the palace.

105
00:09:38,918 –> 00:09:44,185
He asked me to become the best physician in Joseon.

106
00:09:45,479 –> 00:09:51,143
But, now that I think about it, so long
as you’re around, that would be difficult.

107
00:09:51,810 –> 00:09:55,879
No, even if you were born in the other world,

108
00:09:55,999 –> 00:09:59,936
you would have become a very outstanding physician.

109
00:10:00,228 –> 00:10:04,432
Didn’t I say that I’m good at judging people.

110
00:10:05,854 –> 00:10:10,527
That’s right. I think what you said was right.

111
00:11:08,330 –> 00:11:13,173
I heard that Teacher Lee had a son without any big issues.

112
00:11:13,506 –> 00:11:19,880
It should be thanks to Physician Jin.
HeungSeon-gun would have used that
chance to try to convince Teacher Lee.

113
00:11:20,176 –> 00:11:25,036
How did you know?
Do I have to see it for me to know about it?

114
00:11:25,156 –> 00:11:31,525
There’s only Teacher Lee that HeungSeon-gun
who had landed himself in a tight spot
can try to pester to convince him.

115
00:11:31,892 –> 00:11:36,294
I think he wouldn’t be able to get the answer he wants.

116
00:11:36,670 –> 00:11:42,156
That seems to be so.
The dog of a mourning family has dropped his bone.

117
00:11:42,276 –> 00:11:47,536
Or, whether an old cat who tries to jump,
we haven’t lost what we had meant to do.

118
00:11:49,007 –> 00:11:54,921
This country is growing up
well in my flower pot like before.

119
00:12:00,361 –> 00:12:05,785
The stance of those leaves look completely scattered.

120
00:12:32,900 –> 00:12:36,128
Please take in Teacher Lee.

121
00:12:36,773 –> 00:12:43,094
If we catch him and then interrogate him,
he would definitely cough out that they are
planning to replace the king. Of course,

122
00:12:43,344 –> 00:12:48,583
we have to get his confession before
the first vice-premier starts to take actions.

123
00:12:49,720 –> 00:12:55,958
If we were to interrogate the
nephew-in-law of the Queen Dowager,
How would you be able to bear that whirlwind?

124
00:12:56,294 –> 00:13:02,031
Do you have a choice?
Even if you make a splash, you’re in the
situation where everything’s been messed-up.

125
00:13:03,408 –> 00:13:09,301
We have to wait.
The direction of the wind would change.

126
00:13:11,435 –> 00:13:16,703
Please continue with your drawing.
I will prepare your ink for you.

127
00:13:34,697 –> 00:13:40,560
The baby totally takes after your eyes and nose.

128
00:13:40,831 –> 00:13:44,993
You wouldn’t be able to tell yet.

129
00:13:45,113 –> 00:13:50,509
Please look at him carefully.
Doesn’t he look exactly like you?

130
00:13:51,739 –> 00:13:54,441
My wife…

131
00:13:54,806 –> 00:13:59,336
HeungSeon-gun hopes that I would join hands with him.

132
00:13:59,680 –> 00:14:04,854
If that’s the case, the Queen Dowager Palace
wouldn’t be able to have a chance of refute forever.

133
00:14:04,974 –> 00:14:08,815
So? How did you reply him?

134
00:14:08,935 –> 00:14:14,333
I told him that I couldn’t begets kindness.

135
00:14:16,589 –> 00:14:20,313
What HeungSeon-gun wishes,

136
00:14:20,824 –> 00:14:25,434
is it the right path?
He says that he wants to change the country

137
00:14:25,685 –> 00:14:29,909
against the first vice-premier ruling and disloyal subject.

138
00:14:31,794 –> 00:14:36,582
I had such a thinking. Would the baby be

139
00:14:37,031 –> 00:14:40,598
able to pass the higher civil service
examination when he grows up?

140
00:14:40,848 –> 00:14:44,867
Would I have to knock on the door of the
AnDong Kim Family to buy him a governmental post?

141
00:14:45,565 –> 00:14:48,006
My wife…

142
00:14:48,820 –> 00:14:52,179
Didn’t they say that married daughters are outsiders?

143
00:14:52,517 –> 00:14:56,032
I will follow your decision.

144
00:15:12,993 –> 00:15:16,268
Thank you, Teacher Lee.

145
00:15:22,699 –> 00:15:26,361
This is something glad from early in the morning.

146
00:15:26,481 –> 00:15:30,491
Why did the both of you come?
Your Majesty,

147
00:15:30,752 –> 00:15:34,395
for us to aspire on the throne
earlier when the current king still reigns,

148
00:15:34,515 –> 00:15:38,912
I know that it’s a conspire to rise in revolt.

149
00:15:39,350 –> 00:15:43,731
What… did you just say?

150
00:15:44,084 –> 00:15:49,383
As an elder of the country, although you
were bewitched by the sweet talks
of those disloyal subject for a brief moment,

151
00:15:49,633 –> 00:15:54,964
but this is something difficult for me to
close an eye on even as your subject.
And?

152
00:15:55,527 –> 00:15:58,883
Are you saying that you would accuse
this old woman of having plot for a rebellion?

153
00:15:59,003 –> 00:16:03,911
What an undeserved saying, Your Majesty.
How would I dare to accuse you of a crime?

154
00:16:04,031 –> 00:16:09,241
However, this has been made known to the
govenment officials and I’m just afraid that there

155
00:16:09,361 –> 00:16:13,601
would be talks to remove your rights as Queen Dowager.

156
00:16:13,977 –> 00:16:19,891
You would forget about this matter,
so I should stop interfering.

157
00:16:20,011 –> 00:16:24,205
The child of Teacher Lee couldn’t be more than just cute.

158
00:16:24,581 –> 00:16:30,485
Wouldn’t you have to ensure that the
child lives a long life, Your Majesty?

159
00:16:31,893 –> 00:16:35,492
I don’t think that I would get

160
00:16:35,612 –> 00:16:40,604
the chance to hug my grandnephew.

161
00:16:40,724 –> 00:16:44,516
Please be understanding of the advice of Daewongun.

162
00:16:44,636 –> 00:16:49,439
I don’t want to listen to that.
Who do you think you should thank to

163
00:16:49,559 –> 00:16:54,000
for giving you your post and your power?
And, now you’re asking me

164
00:16:54,120 –> 00:16:57,588
to be understanding?

165
00:16:58,683 –> 00:17:01,886
Please leave the room.
Your Majesty.

166
00:17:02,006 –> 00:17:06,363
I said I don’t want to hear you out.
Leave the room!

167
00:17:13,780 –> 00:17:16,127
Your Excellency,

168
00:17:18,173 –> 00:17:24,234
the Queen Dowager is looking for you urgently.
I have urgent things to discuss with the ministers,

169
00:17:24,484 –> 00:17:27,321
ask her to wait.

170
00:17:27,896 –> 00:17:32,934
Maybe it would be difficult to meet her today.
I would drop by the Queen Dowager Palace tomorrow.

171
00:17:33,404 –> 00:17:37,691
Convey the message to her like that.
Yes.

172
00:17:44,645 –> 00:17:49,798
It’s not anyone else, but why would
Teacher Lee turn against the Queen Dowager?

173
00:17:49,918 –> 00:17:54,691
What funny tricks did HeungSeon-gun use?

174
00:17:54,811 –> 00:18:00,163
If HeungSeon-gun were to make use
of Teacher Lee to start a sanguinary battle,
then both sides would fall into great danger.

175
00:18:01,915 –> 00:18:06,380
I wouldn’t have stake on something
that doesn’t give me the upperhand.
That’s right.

176
00:18:06,651 –> 00:18:12,443
But, you would have to cut off all
ties with the Queen Dowager.
Isn’t she someone who’s powerless like the setting sun?

177
00:18:13,090 –> 00:18:18,368
The yellow dog that she had raised
herself bites on the back of her leg.

178
00:18:19,304 –> 00:18:24,947
The situation is going against what we had hoped for.
After he get rid of Her Majesty Cho, the stumbling stone,

179
00:18:25,291 –> 00:18:29,359
it’s obvious that he would be coming after us right away.

180
00:18:29,589 –> 00:18:33,062
Watch carefully the movements of HeungSeon-gun.

181
00:18:34,043 –> 00:18:37,120
I will do as you order.

182
00:18:37,240 –> 00:18:40,145
It’s not even today, but tomorrow?

183
00:18:40,265 –> 00:18:45,006
Did you clearly tell him that it’s a pressing matter?
Yes, Your Majesty.

184
00:18:47,904 –> 00:18:51,930
Utilise a person when his service is needed,
and keep him at a distance when he is no longer wanted.

185
00:18:52,050 –> 00:18:56,885
Is the first vice-premier trying to
save himself in this situation?

186
00:18:57,005 –> 00:19:01,514
That insolent rascal.
Your Majesty. Your Majesty

187
00:19:02,348 –> 00:19:06,135
Please compose yourself, Your Majesty.
Your Majesty…

188
00:19:24,346 –> 00:19:28,466
You would have to rest well for the time being.
And, you could have indigestion,

189
00:19:28,586 –> 00:19:32,065
so please eat something easy on the stomach.

190
00:19:40,581 –> 00:19:44,138
Physician Jin…
Yes, Your Majesty,

191
00:19:44,258 –> 00:19:47,789
Now that I come to this age,

192
00:19:47,909 –> 00:19:52,318
living is getting tiring by the day.

193
00:19:52,860 –> 00:19:56,762
You need to be strong.
HeungSeon-gun is

194
00:19:56,882 –> 00:20:00,423
really someone scary.

195
00:20:00,728 –> 00:20:06,913
He ditched the first vice-premier aside and
he took whole control of Joseon.

196
00:20:10,304 –> 00:20:13,548
Although you’re a physician,

197
00:20:13,668 –> 00:20:17,956
I’m aware that you share a special
relationship with HeungSeon-gun.

198
00:20:18,426 –> 00:20:23,172
I hope that you would be able to help
HeungSeon-gun so that he would

199
00:20:23,292 –> 00:20:28,009
rule this country on a righteous path.

200
00:20:29,887 –> 00:20:35,207
You should help him.
What can I help him with?

201
00:20:36,068 –> 00:20:41,899
I can only back down quietly in my small corner.

202
00:20:44,632 –> 00:20:49,927
I’m feel drowsy.
I need to get some sleep.

203
00:21:01,463 –> 00:21:07,252
She’s the key figure who had protected Gojung.
Her Majesty Cho who was once the
accomplice of HeungSeon-gun

204
00:21:07,555 –> 00:21:11,550
has been pushed aside off the front line of her authority.

205
00:21:15,724 –> 00:21:20,668
So, I would lie down my old body and

206
00:21:20,788 –> 00:21:25,769
I would understand the virtue of the
late king and lead a quiet life.

207
00:21:26,301 –> 00:21:30,852
Please don’t feel upset over my desicion, my subjects,

208
00:21:30,972 –> 00:21:36,547
for the sake of the country and the
royal family, please remain loyal.

209
00:21:36,881 –> 00:21:44,081
That is the remaining wish of this old woman.

210
00:21:45,062 –> 00:21:51,177
Your Majesty!
Your Majesty!
Your Majesty!

211
00:21:53,848 –> 00:21:57,938
Your Majesty!

212
00:21:58,058 –> 00:22:04,948
Your Majesty!
Your Majesty!

213
00:22:08,203 –> 00:22:13,077
Daewongun, congratulations to you.

214
00:22:13,348 –> 00:22:16,916
To me?
You wouldn’t have to run to the Queen Dowager Palace and

215
00:22:17,036 –> 00:22:20,629
try to act like you’re sincere when you aren’t.

216
00:22:22,297 –> 00:22:25,541
Use her when required and dumped
her merciless when she’s become useless.

217
00:22:25,661 –> 00:22:30,298
Won’t that make you a yellow dog who cooked the hunter?
Hey, you, still,

218
00:22:30,418 –> 00:22:34,303
he’s the Daewongun.
You should be careful with your words.

219
00:22:34,595 –> 00:22:40,030
Then, I would congratulate the first vice-premier too.

220
00:22:40,259 –> 00:22:46,215
The Grand Palace obviously has an owner,
but there were rumours speading
that someone’s plotting the next king.

221
00:22:46,549 –> 00:22:53,245
The moment I heard it, I just shove it aside.
Who could have spread such a groundless rumour?

222
00:22:53,365 –> 00:22:58,909
He’s really a despicable person.
Even if it’s a groundless rumour,

223
00:22:59,463 –> 00:23:02,937
there wouldn’t be smoke without fire.

224
00:23:04,303 –> 00:23:07,923
Teacher Lee, please don’t bother
yourself with such groundless things.

225
00:23:08,043 –> 00:23:12,596
He’s the first vice-premier of the country,
would he have plotted of such a severe crime?

226
00:23:12,716 –> 00:23:19,208
If you stay at such a high position
like I do for a long period, you would
be perplexed by such complex rumours.

227
00:23:19,328 –> 00:23:25,165
I’m glad that you have ears that would
cover up such groundless rumours.

228
00:23:28,921 –> 00:23:33,709
Glad? I find that glad too.

229
00:23:33,991 –> 00:23:36,505
Let’s go.

230
00:23:39,795 –> 00:23:45,125
The first vice-premier wouldn’t just take it lying down.
Would it be comparable to me?

231
00:23:47,388 –> 00:23:53,105
40 years. It’s a sword that I have sharpened for 40 years.

232
00:23:55,218 –> 00:24:00,142
Since I took the sword in my hands, I should wield it.

233
00:24:15,553 –> 00:24:19,569
Elder…
Sit down.

234
00:24:27,892 –> 00:24:31,699
How is the Queen Dowager?

235
00:24:32,120 –> 00:24:36,335
I heard that she had difficulty breathing.
She’s has become very worn out.

236
00:24:36,455 –> 00:24:41,373
That should be so.
She overly exhausted herself.

237
00:24:42,760 –> 00:24:45,900
Don’t you have greed, Elder?

238
00:24:46,439 –> 00:24:51,592
In order to have all the power to yourself,
isn’t that why you get the Queen Dowager to back down?

239
00:24:51,999 –> 00:24:57,757
But, what’s imporant is what kind of greed
do I have. Did I want to gain that power
because I want for it to benefit myself?

240
00:24:57,877 –> 00:25:03,103
If that’s the case, I wouldn’t have plan for such things.

241
00:25:03,223 –> 00:25:07,651
Read it.

242
00:25:10,666 –> 00:25:16,288
I asked of a secret order and
it’s the contents of what I got after
investigating secretly of the schools.

243
00:25:18,082 –> 00:25:23,924
This is a problem that I can’t just forget about it.
Elder, however, this is…
Tell me.

244
00:25:24,044 –> 00:25:29,763
From the history that you had learned,
was this policy a success?

245
00:25:32,287 –> 00:25:35,928
Why? Because you wrote this on
the letter that you gave me,

246
00:25:36,048 –> 00:25:39,246
so you don’t want to disclose it?

247
00:25:43,262 –> 00:25:48,123
It would succeed.
The people would support that too.

248
00:25:49,876 –> 00:25:51,947
I see.

249
00:25:52,716 –> 00:25:56,972
I just want to know that.
However… it is too fast.

250
00:25:57,092 –> 00:26:00,904
It is much faster than the timing that I had known.
Even if you recite the same scripture,

251
00:26:01,024 –> 00:26:05,533
the tone would change depending on that day.
However,

252
00:26:05,653 –> 00:26:11,395
even if that’s the case, the contents
of the scripture wouldn’t change.
Even if it’s a different timing from what you know,

253
00:26:11,515 –> 00:26:13,993
if it turns out to be a success,

254
00:26:14,673 –> 00:26:20,744
that would be fine then.
If you rush into it, it could possibly fail.

255
00:26:20,864 –> 00:26:24,739
What a naive person.
Time is not standing on my side.

256
00:26:24,859 –> 00:26:31,162
The moment I have a single delay,
the first vice-premier would launch a counterattack.
Before I get attacked, I would have to act first.

257
00:26:32,768 –> 00:26:37,775
Do you remmeber the promise that you make?
Are you referring to Catholic?
Yes.

258
00:26:39,753 –> 00:26:46,220
You’re not even a devotee of Catholic, why are you…
Are you so worried about something that didn’t happen?

259
00:26:47,045 –> 00:26:50,278
There’s someone I have to protect.

260
00:26:50,398 –> 00:26:54,988
Madam Daewongun. Madam Daewongun.

261
00:26:55,301 –> 00:27:00,068
Have you been well?
Why haven’t you been coming to the church recently?

262
00:27:00,506 –> 00:27:04,188
I was at the internal hospital.
I heard that you have become a physician.

263
00:27:05,157 –> 00:27:11,134
So, I came to you because of something urgent.
Did someone come?

264
00:27:13,346 –> 00:27:17,435
Mother, she’s the wife of HeungSeon-Daewongun.

265
00:27:19,587 –> 00:27:23,769
Oh heavens! Oh heavens,

266
00:27:23,889 –> 00:27:29,434
why did you come to such a humble place?
Please come in.
It’s alright.

267
00:27:29,554 –> 00:27:35,133
I have a patient whose condition is critical,
so there’s a place that missy has to drop by with me.
Would that be fine?

268
00:27:35,253 –> 00:27:40,401
Of course, please do that. Go on quickly.

269
00:27:42,376 –> 00:27:47,800
If she’s the wife of HeungSeon-Daewongun…
Isn’t she the King’s mother?

270
00:27:47,920 –> 00:27:51,482
I think that the medical skills
of Young Rae is truly amazing.

271
00:27:51,602 –> 00:27:55,801
If it’s to the extend that the wife of HeungSeon-Daewongun
would come to look for her personally…

272
00:28:06,060 –> 00:28:11,737
Is he really Father Ridel?
He is.
[Father Ridel (Félix-Claire Ridel 1830 ~ 1884)
Year 1861 (ruling of CheolJong 12 year) the
western father of a catholic church who had
come to Joseon with 11 other French priests.]

273
00:28:11,857 –> 00:28:17,234
You heard things about him too?
I’m very well aware of him.

274
00:28:17,354 –> 00:28:22,416
Isn’t he someone who had come
all the way from France to Joseon to
convey the messages of the Lord of Heaven?

275
00:28:22,536 –> 00:28:27,297
So long as anyone’s a believer,
they would want to meet him.
It seems like he was caught by the tribunal office

276
00:28:27,417 –> 00:28:33,240
when he was on his way back to the Qing Dynasty.
While he was trying to escape, the
wound on his calf seems to have gotten worse.

277
00:28:42,058 –> 00:28:47,180
I think that the church is dangerous no matter what.
And, I can’t ask a physician to come.
So, I brought him here for now.

278
00:28:47,300 –> 00:28:53,198
I have to go to the hospital to bring some medicine.
No one should know about this.

279
00:28:53,318 –> 00:28:55,116
Yes.

280
00:29:19,893 –> 00:29:24,816
As soon as you got your power, you immediately
order to abolish the schools extensively.

281
00:29:25,212 –> 00:29:29,823
The scholars would object intensely, but
you would eventually get the support of the people

282
00:29:29,943 –> 00:29:33,603
and you closed the doors of many schools.

283
00:29:35,178 –> 00:29:38,797
Someone who’s a physician, why would
he be interested in such prophecy?

284
00:30:02,624 –> 00:30:07,120
You’re here?
Yes.

285
00:30:07,965 –> 00:30:11,511
Did something happen?

286
00:30:12,351 –> 00:30:16,409
Missy…
There’s a patient.

287
00:30:16,753 –> 00:30:20,957
I think he has Sepsis.
Sepsis?

288
00:30:21,077 –> 00:30:27,255
He’s having a high fever and his condition
is critical. I don’t know if he would get
better if he’s been prescibed penicillin.
[Sepsis: an illness in which the body has
a severe response to bacteria or other germs.]

289
00:30:27,589 –> 00:30:33,524
That… Physician Jin, could you
help me take a look at him?
I will do that. Please bring him here.

290
00:30:37,185 –> 00:30:41,222
What’s wrong?
Actually,

291
00:30:41,702 –> 00:30:46,062
he’s a western priest.

292
00:31:06,416 –> 00:31:10,474
I think he really has Sepsis.
His condition isn’t good.
Then?

293
00:31:10,594 –> 00:31:14,477
I would have to inject him with penicillin
first and watch over his condition.

294
00:31:30,932 –> 00:31:34,941
What is that?
What is that?

295
00:31:35,061 –> 00:31:39,593
It’s a syringe. It’s a tool to inject the medicine.
Syringe?

296
00:31:39,713 –> 00:31:42,869
Medicine?
You have to be injected with this medicine
in order for you to get better.

297
00:31:42,989 –> 00:31:47,842
No, no syringe.
Please don’t do anything to my body.

298
00:31:48,082 –> 00:31:52,129
Father…
I have never seen

299
00:31:52,249 –> 00:31:55,822
such medicine in my own country. And,

300
00:31:55,942 –> 00:32:01,228
I can’t believe in the medicine that has
been made by the physicians of Joseon.

301
00:32:01,348 –> 00:32:05,953
He’s a very outstanding physician.
He’s someone who had treated the king.

302
00:32:06,073 –> 00:32:10,081
I want to go to Qing Dynasty.

303
00:32:10,201 –> 00:32:14,817
We have our own physicians there.
I can endure it until I get there.

304
00:32:14,937 –> 00:32:18,468
If you leave it as that, the infection would
get worse and it could cost you your life.

305
00:32:19,443 –> 00:32:23,417
I’m fine with that.
I don’t need physicians

306
00:32:23,537 –> 00:32:27,986
of Joseon.
Please convince him and inject him
with the medicine yourself.

307
00:32:28,106 –> 00:32:32,158
I…
Since you have the same beliefs as him,
he would trust you more than he does for me.

308
00:32:32,278 –> 00:32:38,132
If you can’t trust me, then please believe in her.
Would that be fine?

309
00:32:42,200 –> 00:32:46,104
I’m also a believer.
The syringe and the medicine are

310
00:32:46,224 –> 00:32:51,319
nothing dangerous at all.
I would promise you that in the name of Catholic.

311
00:32:52,772 –> 00:32:58,353
Please believe in me, Father.

312
00:33:02,765 –> 00:33:05,623
It’s fine now.

313
00:33:07,124 –> 00:33:13,341
It’s the first time I’ve seen a female physician in Joseon.

314
00:33:18,999 –> 00:33:24,757
Then, the next disinfectant and injection…
I will do it. Please don’t come here.

315
00:33:26,499 –> 00:33:32,079
Don’t you remember what you promised me?
You can’t come to the church for the time being
and you can’t mix with the believers as well.

316
00:33:32,571 –> 00:33:39,101
However…
I’m doing this for your sake.
I will take care of the father, so please do as I tell you.

317
00:33:40,791 –> 00:33:45,297
I’m sorry to have caused you to worry.
I will do that.

318
00:33:46,682 –> 00:33:51,762
That would be fine then.

319
00:34:18,887 –> 00:34:21,860
The indication doesn’t look good at all.

320
00:34:21,980 –> 00:34:26,624
What do you mean, father?
HeungSeon-gun has come to cast me out.

321
00:34:26,744 –> 00:34:31,099
I don’t know what he would slash on, but I smell blood.

322
00:34:34,302 –> 00:34:39,953
This year, the funds of the country is in
such a terrible mess.

323
00:34:40,203 –> 00:34:45,460
so, I tell you this with feelings like I’ve been pierced.

324
00:34:46,548 –> 00:34:50,804
As of today, the audithoriums at the
eight provinces of Joseon are as much as 1,700.

325
00:34:50,924 –> 00:34:53,965
Among those, some of it was funded
with the money from the king and

326
00:34:54,085 –> 00:34:57,146
the rest of it in the country side was actually

327
00:34:57,266 –> 00:35:00,127
built up by the scholars as they like.

328
00:35:00,247 –> 00:35:04,873
So, I think it is only right for us to abolish
those audithoriums that would bring damage to the

329
00:35:04,993 –> 00:35:10,159
government office in the countryside and
that had been built through extortion of the people.

330
00:35:21,209 –> 00:35:28,105
If there’s someone who persecute the people,
it would still be unforgivable even
if Confucius is to come back alive.

331
00:35:28,225 –> 00:35:32,609
So, to say, wouldn’t those audithoriums
be the homes of the bandits?

332
00:35:32,729 –> 00:35:37,032
They have a great number of land and slaves.
And, those people who wouldn’t even pay a penny for taxes

333
00:35:37,152 –> 00:35:41,089
are truly worms that eats into the country.

334
00:35:41,209 –> 00:35:46,115
Abolish the audithoriums and let the local
government take care of that particular land.

335
00:35:46,235 –> 00:35:51,557
We have to set up a country law to restrict the
building of private audithoriums in future.

336
00:35:51,677 –> 00:35:55,876
Those are audithoriums that convey the
wishes of the wiseman. How could
you abolish those audithoriums?

337
00:35:55,996 –> 00:36:00,766
Aren’t you trying to cut off the lifeline
of the teachings of the country?
I say, first vice-premier,

338
00:36:00,886 –> 00:36:05,428
the life of the country is difficult,
we shouldn’t be doing that
so that we can pay respect for Confucius.

339
00:36:05,548 –> 00:36:10,589
The scholars wouldn’t sit back and do nothing.
Are you not going to make the sauces
because you’re afraid of maggots?
[Literally: Even if there’s somewhat a little obstruction,
we have to do what is deem as appropriate.]

340
00:36:10,709 –> 00:36:14,605
Maggots?
Many places in the country are

341
00:36:14,725 –> 00:36:20,127
faced with the damage caused by the harm.
For the sake of those pitiful people,

342
00:36:20,247 –> 00:36:25,050
we would have to make a drastic move to abolish it.
Aren’t scholars the people as well?

343
00:36:25,170 –> 00:36:30,527
How could you do such a thing to scholars?
People who empty the country’s
funds just to care for themselves,

344
00:36:30,647 –> 00:36:34,025
wouldn’t be the people, but bandits.

345
00:36:34,145 –> 00:36:37,791
Someone who’s the official for Constitutional Affairs,
where do you think this place is for you to voice out?

346
00:36:37,911 –> 00:36:43,674
There’s a big bandit in the palace, so are you asking

347
00:36:44,039 –> 00:36:49,296
me to close my eyes and not bother about small bandits?
What? What did you say?

348
00:36:49,416 –> 00:36:52,905
Please keep quiet!

349
00:36:54,376 –> 00:36:57,975
I understand the wishes of Daewongun,

350
00:36:58,421 –> 00:37:04,221
but, what do you intend to do with
the objections of the scholars?
Would you be able to bear for the consequences?

351
00:37:04,659 –> 00:37:09,864
Compared to the dead Confucius, they would come
to know that the living Daewongun is more fearful.

352
00:37:37,229 –> 00:37:42,424
Abolish the schools. Schools.

353
00:37:42,997 –> 00:37:47,378
[Notice to abolish the schools.]

354
00:37:47,498 –> 00:37:50,380
They should have already done something like that.

355
00:37:50,500 –> 00:37:53,718
That’s right. That’s right.
Daewongun is indeed

356
00:37:53,838 –> 00:37:57,921
someone outstanding.
That’s right. That’s right.

357
00:37:58,041 –> 00:38:00,432
The scholars would sit by and do nothing.

358
00:38:00,552 –> 00:38:05,262
If they want to fight, then just let them be.
Wouldn’t they catch them and lock them up?

359
00:38:05,382 –> 00:38:10,092
That’s right. That’s right.
What’s so scary about those worms
that eats into the taxes of the country?

360
00:38:10,212 –> 00:38:16,095
The move of Daewongun wanting to abolish those
schools are gaining strong support from the people.

361
00:38:16,215 –> 00:38:22,270
The history that’s been jotted down has been progressing.
What would happen to the persecution of Catholic?

362
00:38:22,390 –> 00:38:25,689
Is it really unavoidable?

363
00:38:25,809 –> 00:38:31,050
He’s truly different from those ignorant fools.
The soul of the heaven is raging in anger.

364
00:38:31,170 –> 00:38:35,108
Is the Daewongun not scared of heaven?

365
00:38:35,228 –> 00:38:39,066
Please take back your order to abolish the schools.
Please await the official decision from the King.

366
00:38:39,186 –> 00:38:44,647
Please await the official decision from the King.

367
00:38:44,767 –> 00:38:48,005
Please await the official decision from the King.

368
00:38:48,125 –> 00:38:51,145
Please await the official decision from the King.

369
00:38:51,265 –> 00:38:57,017
I thought there were some flies that
were making fuzzy noises.

370
00:38:57,137 –> 00:39:01,232
So these good-for-nothing have all
gathered here to make a scene.

371
00:39:01,352 –> 00:39:04,426
What did you say?
Hey, you people,

372
00:39:04,546 –> 00:39:08,828
you say that you would live your
whole life with Confucius or Mencius

373
00:39:08,948 –> 00:39:13,313
and would that allow you to harvest a bag or
rice or would that weave you a yield of fabric?
Isn’t that so, everyone?

374
00:39:13,433 –> 00:39:20,216
That’s right!
What he said is exactly right!

375
00:39:20,336 –> 00:39:23,018
Come, how would you settle this?

376
00:39:23,138 –> 00:39:28,192
Do you want to walk back home with your legs or
do you want to be grabbed by me

377
00:39:28,312 –> 00:39:33,188
and be locked up in jail? Try to think through
that with those smart brains of yours and

378
00:39:33,308 –> 00:39:38,568
choose which option would you take.
Prepare!

379
00:39:38,688 –> 00:39:41,468
I’m counting to 3.

380
00:39:42,062 –> 00:39:46,423
1! 2!

381
00:39:47,278 –> 00:39:49,886
3! Catch them!

382
00:39:55,685 –> 00:40:00,144
So, the scholars outside the palace has flee for their lives?

383
00:40:01,114 –> 00:40:06,674
Among those, there are few who stayed
and held on for a couple of days. Those few
are also said to have been taken by the military.

384
00:40:06,794 –> 00:40:11,003
It’s obvious that would be so for those scholars
who have always been surrounded by books.
They have been threatened.

385
00:40:11,123 –> 00:40:14,830
Would they have the guts to hold on?
The scholars might be so,

386
00:40:14,950 –> 00:40:17,208
but the people are also a problem.

387
00:40:17,328 –> 00:40:21,224
Those tens over scholars who have headed for the capital,
after they have almost reached their destination,

388
00:40:21,344 –> 00:40:25,811
they fell into an ambush by the
people and went back home.

389
00:40:26,121 –> 00:40:31,379
No, are you saying that they dare to
lay a finger on those noblemen?

390
00:40:31,499 –> 00:40:36,279
What are those government officals doing?
It seems like they are following the orders of Daewongun.

391
00:40:36,399 –> 00:40:41,046
He has ordered those government officals not to interfere.
What has become of the situation in the country.

392
00:40:41,286 –> 00:40:44,353
Seriously…
The people who had always find those
scholars to be a thorn in the eye

393
00:40:44,473 –> 00:40:49,899
have find a chance to all gathered together all their forces.
So long as the people are supporting Daewongun,

394
00:40:50,019 –> 00:40:55,354
if we act recklessly, Your Excellency
would also be afflicted by it.

395
00:40:56,489 –> 00:41:00,828
Leave the room!

396
00:41:07,160 –> 00:41:10,756
HeungSeon-gun that man is getting
harder and harder to deal with.

397
00:41:10,876 –> 00:41:15,591
I’m sure there would be an ulterior motive for
deciding to abolish the schools to save the country.

398
00:41:15,711 –> 00:41:19,659
It is needless to say.
Isn’t he trying to totally eliminate the
base of Southern factions.

399
00:41:19,779 –> 00:41:23,613
It’s a trick to shaken the position of our family.

400
00:41:23,733 –> 00:41:29,214
What detestable man.
I think that an opportunity to fix things right is coming.

401
00:41:29,334 –> 00:41:33,251
What do you mean by that?
He made the Queen Dowager stepped down
and then abolish the schools.

402
00:41:33,371 –> 00:41:37,058
He would be very satisfied that things
are going on smoothly as he had planned.

403
00:41:37,178 –> 00:41:42,113
A chance to penetrate the situation
would be spotted at times like that.
Would you…

404
00:41:42,968 –> 00:41:48,465
be able to spot that chance?
I would find that out. At all costs.

405
00:41:53,698 –> 00:41:58,664
You’d recover if you rest for a couple more days.
You almost landed yourself in danger.

406
00:41:58,784 –> 00:42:03,347
Even if I survive, I’m unhappy.

407
00:42:05,225 –> 00:42:09,888
This whole while, a lot of brothers and sisters,

408
00:42:10,008 –> 00:42:13,632
a lot of believers have been caught because of their beliefs.

409
00:42:14,352 –> 00:42:19,904
I’m aware of that.
Joseon is a hopeless country.

410
00:42:20,958 –> 00:42:26,142
If they were to surpress our beliefs,

411
00:42:26,262 –> 00:42:30,792
then Joseon might faced a huge disaster.

412
00:42:35,549 –> 00:42:39,940
Can I… ask what’s your name?

413
00:42:40,060 –> 00:42:45,007
Félix-Claire Ridel. My Joseon’s name

414
00:42:45,127 –> 00:42:48,512
is Lee Bok Myung.
Ridel,

415
00:42:48,632 –> 00:42:54,098
because of the reason that those believers
of Catholic has been brought to harm.
A priest from France that would bring troops to Joseon.

416
00:42:54,218 –> 00:43:01,797
This man would become the cause of Byeong-in yangyo.
[Byeong-in yangyo: incident in Year 1866 (3rd year
of GoJong ruling) HeungSeon-Daewongun’s
massacre of Catholicism, to counter suppression,
the French fleet invaded Kanghwado.]

417
00:43:06,899 –> 00:43:12,094
Somehow you seem different
from the other Joseon people.

418
00:43:12,740 –> 00:43:16,078
You have amazing medical skills.

419
00:43:17,142 –> 00:43:20,796
The same goes to the medicine you made.

420
00:43:21,432 –> 00:43:25,417
You’re a foreigner like me.

421
00:43:25,537 –> 00:43:30,090
You aren’t someone from this place.
Where are you from?

422
00:43:41,920 –> 00:43:45,748
You’re back?
Physician Jin!

423
00:43:47,115 –> 00:43:52,257
Did your headache become worse?
No. Oh, right, Missy.

424
00:43:52,377 –> 00:43:56,291
That western priest.
Did something happen to the priest?

425
00:43:56,411 –> 00:44:00,078
If he goes to Qing Dynasty…
You don’t look good.

426
00:44:00,198 –> 00:44:03,635
I’ll go and bring some medicine.

427
00:44:05,516 –> 00:44:11,399
So, this is how the internal hospital looks like.
What brings you here?

428
00:44:12,411 –> 00:44:16,730
I’m sorry, but I didn’t come here to meet you.

429
00:44:17,277 –> 00:44:23,295
Physician Jin, if you’re fine with it,
I would like to have a talk with you.

430
00:44:36,744 –> 00:44:41,522
Do you know why is he looking for you?

431
00:44:41,897 –> 00:44:45,083
It wouldn’t be anything.

432
00:44:55,900 –> 00:44:59,112
Now that I think of it, it’s truly amazing.

433
00:44:59,341 –> 00:45:05,589
HeungSeon-gun who was like the dog
of a mourning house became Daewongun
and twiddle and take control of this country.

434
00:45:05,829 –> 00:45:10,629
I’m also referring to that he manage to overturn the
control that our family has for 60 years.

435
00:45:12,266 –> 00:45:15,750
Wouldn’t that be very surprising?

436
00:45:16,721 –> 00:45:20,768
And?
Is that all?

437
00:45:20,888 –> 00:45:27,024
The same goes to your medical skills that
manage to revive a dying person.
If I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes,
I wouldn’t be able to believe in that.

438
00:45:27,144 –> 00:45:31,418
Why is it that you want to say?
You are in the middle of

439
00:45:31,538 –> 00:45:35,377
all these issues.

440
00:45:38,686 –> 00:45:44,204
What exactly is your identity?
Who are you and where did you come from that
you would come to get involve in all these things?

441
00:45:44,788 –> 00:45:49,868
I am… just a physician.

442
00:45:50,525 –> 00:45:56,398
I’m an ordinary physician who’s a friend of Daewongun
and someone who taught the Missy medical skills.

443
00:46:00,831 –> 00:46:04,211
Didn’t you miss something out?

444
00:46:04,621 –> 00:46:10,587
Not just medical skills, your fortune
telling skills of predicting
the future is also very outstanding.

445
00:46:12,705 –> 00:46:17,900
I will gradually put you into good use.
You would have to answer me

446
00:46:18,664 –> 00:46:21,293
who are you by then.

447
00:46:30,288 –> 00:46:33,835
Why was he looking for you?

448
00:46:34,461 –> 00:46:38,435
Why are you looking at me like that?
Did you perhaps

449
00:46:38,842 –> 00:46:42,295
tell him about me?
What?

450
00:46:42,415 –> 00:46:47,414
I’m referring to the fact that I came
from the other world, the future.

451
00:46:47,779 –> 00:46:52,494
How did the official know about that?

452
00:46:58,496 –> 00:47:00,895
Physician Jin!

453
00:47:04,494 –> 00:47:09,274
They claim themselves to be scholars,
they only look like one on the outside,
but nothingness inside.

454
00:47:09,394 –> 00:47:13,467
I just used both of my hands
and grab hold of them

455
00:47:13,587 –> 00:47:17,835
and lift them up and then cast them aside.
Isn’t that so, GaeBok?
Yes, no doubt.

456
00:47:20,631 –> 00:47:25,074
Everywhere I go, I only hear praises of Daewongun.

457
00:47:25,194 –> 00:47:29,444
You have gotten the hearts of the
people through this issue.

458
00:47:29,564 –> 00:47:33,606
If I had won the hearts of the people,
then it’s as good as getting the zenith.

459
00:47:33,726 –> 00:47:37,320
Now, many things would proceed
smoother than those that doesn’t.

460
00:47:37,440 –> 00:47:40,791
That’s for sure. That’s for sure.

461
00:47:46,059 –> 00:47:50,669
However, you can’t belittle the first vice-premier.

462
00:47:51,128 –> 00:47:57,084
I also have control over the first vice-premier.
Isn’t that so?

463
00:47:59,953 –> 00:48:03,753
What do you mean by that? Are you saying that
you have planted a spy within the first vice-premier gang?

464
00:48:04,326 –> 00:48:09,563
Look at you. If I were to disclose his identity
here, would he still be considered a spy?

465
00:48:09,683 –> 00:48:14,077
Just take it that you didn’t hear me.

466
00:48:15,840 –> 00:48:19,387
Unnie, someone is looking for you.

467
00:48:22,143 –> 00:48:26,702
Are you saying the official?
Yes, he don’t know everything,

468
00:48:26,822 –> 00:48:30,603
but I think he knows to a certain extend.

469
00:48:30,723 –> 00:48:33,114
Did you really not tell him anything?

470
00:48:33,234 –> 00:48:38,778
Why would I do that?
I only prayed that you would return safely.

471
00:48:39,123 –> 00:48:41,355
I got it.

472
00:48:45,873 –> 00:48:50,693
Sir! Sir, are you alright?

473
00:48:50,813 –> 00:48:55,126
You don’t look good.
I’m fine.

474
00:48:55,246 –> 00:48:58,375
I need to go to the priest soon.
What?

475
00:48:58,495 –> 00:49:02,089
I need to tell him.
He can’t start a war.

476
00:49:02,209 –> 00:49:06,449
War? What do you mean by that?

477
00:49:07,972 –> 00:49:11,594
It’s nothing. Don’t bother about it.

478
00:49:18,587 –> 00:49:20,815
Sir!

479
00:49:33,327 –> 00:49:37,234
Father…
What’s going on?

480
00:49:37,354 –> 00:49:41,083
He says that he would say the last prayers at
Joseon, or something.

481
00:49:41,203 –> 00:49:46,653
That’s what he told us.
Everything would be fine now, sisters.

482
00:49:47,102 –> 00:49:52,620
I came out in a rush, so I didn’t
manage to bring any medicine.
Can you walk?

483
00:49:55,228 –> 00:49:59,703
The hospital is very near here.
Let’s go and take a jab.
Yes,

484
00:49:59,823 –> 00:50:02,750
that would be great.
Father…

485
00:50:02,870 –> 00:50:09,113
I’m alright.
Didn’t you say that you’d have to walk a long journey?
Quickly.

486
00:50:13,144 –> 00:50:15,429
Let’s go.

487
00:50:26,028 –> 00:50:30,565
Don’t allow anyone to run away!
Catch all of them!
Yes!

488
00:50:39,287 –> 00:50:43,495
Father, quickly.
However…
Hurry!

489
00:50:43,704 –> 00:50:45,790
Stop there!

490
00:50:48,408 –> 00:50:53,676
Where are you going?
The both of you look very suspicious.

491
00:50:58,981 –> 00:51:03,946
Aren’t you missy? Why are you here at this timing?

492
00:51:04,343 –> 00:51:07,639
I was bringing this patient back.

493
00:51:08,338 –> 00:51:13,181
Time is pressing.
Please take off your straw hat.

494
00:51:14,578 –> 00:51:16,414
Hurry up!

495
00:51:20,805 –> 00:51:24,894
Catch him!

496
00:51:32,848 –> 00:51:36,676
Hey…
There are a lot of onlookers.

497
00:51:36,968 –> 00:51:40,296
There’s something I need to speak to you urgently.

498
00:51:45,330 –> 00:51:50,640
Did an accident happen overnight?
Those people that you caught,
are they still in the tribunal office?

499
00:51:50,890 –> 00:51:55,156
Why? Is there something that the official
for Constitutional Affairs need my help for?

500
00:51:55,276 –> 00:51:58,828
It’s not me, but Daewongun.

501
00:52:01,018 –> 00:52:04,888
You have to release someone from the
tribunal office jail without letting anyone know.

502
00:52:05,008 –> 00:52:10,427
Would I be able to understand you if
you speak of something so incoherently.
Tell me in details.

503
00:52:15,168 –> 00:52:19,696
The wife of Daewongun has been caught in the jail.

504
00:52:19,816 –> 00:52:23,826
With the charges as a Catholic believer.

505
00:52:32,294 –> 00:52:36,570
Including Madam, a total of 17 believers have been caught.

506
00:52:36,690 –> 00:52:42,572
If there’s been an order from the Ministry of Justice ,
they would start to interrogate those criminals
following the law. By that time,

507
00:52:42,692 –> 00:52:46,786
they would also know that she’s your wife.
We have to stop it before that.

508
00:52:46,906 –> 00:52:51,063
We have to get her out before the
first vice-premier knows about it.

509
00:52:54,548 –> 00:52:59,607
What did he say?
He says that those Catholic believer criminals are
going to be interrogated by the Ministry of Justice,
so he can’t just get her out of jail.

510
00:53:02,142 –> 00:53:06,098
There are too many men of the first
vice-premier at the Ministry of Justice.

511
00:53:06,218 –> 00:53:12,367
I can’t act as I want.
If so, what do you think we should do?

512
00:53:17,788 –> 00:53:23,400
Say that it’s by the order of me, the Daewongun,
and get them to release all the criminals.

513
00:53:24,944 –> 00:53:30,809
There’s no justification for that.
How do you intend to wrap this up?
Don’t I have to settle the most
pressing matter at hand first?

514
00:53:30,929 –> 00:53:34,846
Hurry up.
Yes.
Yes.

515
00:53:50,551 –> 00:53:52,554
Mina…

516
00:53:55,777 –> 00:53:58,979
Mina, open your eyes.

517
00:54:21,625 –> 00:54:26,225
Why are you sweating so much?
I have never…

518
00:54:28,248 –> 00:54:31,735
dreamed of such a dream before.
What…

519
00:54:31,855 –> 00:54:36,147
dream did you dream?
That person…

520
00:54:38,020 –> 00:54:41,515
Something inauspicious happened to Mina.

521
00:54:45,725 –> 00:54:50,972
It’s just a dream of her appearance.
But, it is too strange.

522
00:54:52,109 –> 00:54:54,581
It feels very vivid

523
00:54:55,061 –> 00:54:57,348
and inauspicious.

524
00:54:59,121 –> 00:55:03,972
That’s because you have been
thinking too much about her.

525
00:55:14,993 –> 00:55:19,217
Is that true? The wife of HeungSeon-gun
is actually a Catholic believer?

526
00:55:19,337 –> 00:55:23,992
Official Hong told me that and he
had asked me to get her out of jail.

527
00:55:24,221 –> 00:55:30,459
If so, what about the criminals?
I heard that before the Ministry of Justice could order them,
they have all been released under the order of Daewongun.

528
00:55:31,219 –> 00:55:34,745
Someone who speaks so much about
upholding and follow the laws,

529
00:55:34,865 –> 00:55:38,990
actually go against that with his own mouth.

530
00:55:47,645 –> 00:55:53,069
Father, please enter the palace.
Do you think that this is one of those
drinking rooms in the village?

531
00:55:53,371 –> 00:55:57,794
What?
How dare you come in and out without
permission. Leave the room.

532
00:56:08,163 –> 00:56:11,668
Do you want to send the military to catch his wife?

533
00:56:11,788 –> 00:56:16,261
Even if she did such a thing, she’s the King’s mother.
So long as she has been freed once,

534
00:56:16,381 –> 00:56:20,350
it would be difficult to catch her again.
If so,

535
00:56:20,470 –> 00:56:24,898
how about submitting a writing to the court?
I have to do that.

536
00:56:26,181 –> 00:56:29,561
Even if the people are supporting Daewongun,

537
00:56:29,681 –> 00:56:35,548
if the fact that his wife is a Catholic
believer has been made known,
they would turn their backs on him.

538
00:56:35,668 –> 00:56:40,469
The people hearts change faster than
the flipping over of one’s hand.

539
00:56:41,189 –> 00:56:45,267
With this, not only Daewongun,

540
00:56:45,387 –> 00:56:48,793
but the King would also be affected.

541
00:57:23,629 –> 00:57:26,873
They are those ministers and officals
who have been assigned with a posts.

542
00:57:26,993 –> 00:57:32,700
As soon as they have received the imperial
order, they would assume their posts.

543
00:57:36,058 –> 00:57:41,480
If so, we would end the discussion with that.
Your subject, first vice-premier, Kim Byung Hee,

544
00:57:42,085 –> 00:57:46,685
has something to report to His Majesty.

545
00:57:48,782 –> 00:57:53,205
Since the olden days, the country has been
under the teachings of Confucius and Mencius.

546
00:57:53,325 –> 00:57:59,183
We have live, abiding by the basis that
both men and women are different and
there would be discrimination against each gender.

547
00:57:59,303 –> 00:58:05,536
However, from someday onwards, a weird
belief by the name of Catholic has

548
00:58:05,656 –> 00:58:09,132
been spreading widely among the people.

549
00:58:09,252 –> 00:58:14,296
This is something that would cause
those late kings to cry out loud.

550
00:58:14,416 –> 00:58:17,717
The belief of Catholic is that all
people in the world are equal and

551
00:58:17,837 –> 00:58:21,816
wouldn’t that kind of saying wreak havoc on the world?

552
00:58:21,936 –> 00:58:25,728
People who go against the law and believe in Catholic is

553
00:58:25,848 –> 00:58:30,631
bring disgrace to the King and they are

554
00:58:30,751 –> 00:58:36,822
criminals who go against civility and law.
What’s the reason for telling that to the King?

555
00:58:42,319 –> 00:58:46,661
I heard that Daewongun freed those catholic believers

556
00:58:46,781 –> 00:58:51,094
criminals who have been caught last night.

557
00:58:58,994 –> 00:59:03,740
Before there was an interrogation by
the Ministry of Justice, what’s the
reason for releasing those criminals?

558
00:59:03,860 –> 00:59:07,157
Is that because…

559
00:59:10,463 –> 00:59:14,907
the wife of Daewongun is also a believer of Catholic?

560
00:59:15,027 –> 00:59:19,058
I couldn’t be more than curious.

561
00:59:30,626 –> 00:59:33,463
All the catholic believers have been caught and…

562
00:59:36,975 –> 00:59:39,019
That…
Did something happen?

563
00:59:39,139 –> 00:59:44,610
Didn’t you hear the news?
The palace is in a total chaos now.
What?

564
00:59:44,730 –> 00:59:48,916
The wife of Daewongun…
So, it is rumoured that the birth mother

565
00:59:49,036 –> 00:59:53,495
of the King is a Catholic believer.
And?

566
00:59:53,615 –> 00:59:57,195
Those criminals that have been caught has
been released and all the big
and small officials and minsters

567
00:59:57,315 –> 01:00:04,340
have gathered together to protest.
If Daewongun is innocent, he would have to catch
all those catholic believers right away.

568
01:00:05,874 –> 01:00:09,326
Physician Jin! Physician Jin!

569
01:00:11,440 –> 01:00:16,353
This is not a simple matter that can be resolved
easily by concealing. Uijeongbu and those
officials in the government office are

570
01:00:16,473 –> 01:00:20,807
already writting appeals to go against you.

571
01:00:20,927 –> 01:00:25,686
The people of the first vice-premier is only a small minority.

572
01:00:25,806 –> 01:00:30,464
Most of the people are those who are
dissatisfied that you actually
cover up for those Catholic believers.

573
01:00:30,584 –> 01:00:35,531
I heard that the people have
also gathered outside the palace.

574
01:00:35,865 –> 01:00:41,070
Are you just going to leave
those Catholic believers as that?

575
01:00:43,239 –> 01:00:46,556
If you’re going to keep covering
up for those Catholic believers,
the first vice-premier

576
01:00:46,676 –> 01:00:52,179
as well as the people wouldn’t sit back and do nothing.
If so, are you suggesting that I sweep them all?

577
01:00:52,502 –> 01:00:56,330
That would be impossible.

578
01:00:56,731 –> 01:01:00,778
If you lost the trust of the people,
you would also lose your power.

579
01:01:01,445 –> 01:01:05,691
Please don’t give the first vice-premier
a pretext against you.

580
01:01:06,056 –> 01:01:09,926
I say, Daewongun.
You have to

581
01:01:10,387 –> 01:01:14,883
make a decision.
Leave the room, everyone.

582
01:01:15,102 –> 01:01:18,137
I have to think about it.

583
01:01:18,993 –> 01:01:22,383
Elder! You can’t do that.

584
01:01:22,503 –> 01:01:27,723
Didn’t you promise me?
You definitely can’t do that!

585
01:01:37,770 –> 01:01:41,587
This won’t do. If you leave like that,
you would definitely be caught by those guards.

586
01:01:42,057 –> 01:01:45,687
If that’s the case, how would I leave?

587
01:01:46,647 –> 01:01:49,445
Elder!

588
01:01:50,311 –> 01:01:54,066
You can’t kill them like that.
You would have to stop that.

589
01:01:54,186 –> 01:01:57,561
The first vice-premier is keeping an eye on that.
Why does it matter?

590
01:01:57,681 –> 01:02:03,233
You would just have to decide that you wouldn’t do that.
Politics isn’t something so simple.

591
01:02:03,353 –> 01:02:08,730
If I side catholic, it’s be said that it’s because of my wife,
and I collude with those westerners.

592
01:02:08,850 –> 01:02:12,639
I would be attack from all around.
It’s something obvious.

593
01:02:12,759 –> 01:02:18,418
I would eventually lose my authority.
And?

594
01:02:18,783 –> 01:02:24,752
Are you saying that you would
sacrifice people for that power?
Would the first vice-premier
do nothing if I’m being chased out?

595
01:02:24,971 –> 01:02:29,269
He would torture them all the more on the contrary.
Then, allow the first vice-premier to do that.

596
01:02:29,389 –> 01:02:33,564
You don’t have to get those blood stained on your hands!
If those people would have to be sacrified,

597
01:02:33,684 –> 01:02:38,915
there’s no reason that I should back down.
Missy would be put in danger too.

598
01:02:40,595 –> 01:02:42,347
Yes,

599
01:02:43,242 –> 01:02:48,260
missy is also a Catholic believer.
I’m sure she’s being chased by someone at this moment.

600
01:02:49,532 –> 01:02:54,143
I’m asking you the favour.
If anything happens to missy…

601
01:02:54,401 –> 01:02:59,617
I don’t know. I don’t know what would happened,
but something serious would happen.
Although this is regrettable,

602
01:03:00,233 –> 01:03:04,833
but I can’t allow the country to be snatched away
by the first vice-premier at this stage.

603
01:03:08,581 –> 01:03:14,057
I also made a difficult decision for the sake of Joseon.

604
01:03:14,177 –> 01:03:19,502
Please don’t lie.
All the politicians say so.

605
01:03:20,003 –> 01:03:23,803
For the sake of the country, for the sake
of the people. But, in the end,

606
01:03:23,923 –> 01:03:27,047
it was all because of their own benefits.
isn’t that so?

607
01:03:27,167 –> 01:03:31,960
Are you saying that you can’t believe in me?
I can’t believe in that power

608
01:03:32,080 –> 01:03:36,867
that you would hate to lose.

609
01:03:37,972 –> 01:03:42,228
You said that you were curious about
the evaluation of what the future
generations have of you, right?

610
01:03:42,348 –> 01:03:47,128
This persecution is the first mistake
that you would make.
And, then the second and third!
Do you know what eventually

611
01:03:47,248 –> 01:03:52,104
become of this country because of you?
Shut up! My history

612
01:03:52,224 –> 01:03:55,773
would be different as of what you have learned.
No,

613
01:03:55,893 –> 01:04:00,050
I just realised it now. The history that I had learned

614
01:04:00,170 –> 01:04:03,805
is happening as of what you are doing right now.

615
01:04:42,844 –> 01:04:47,956
Daewongun has arrived.

616
01:04:57,350 –> 01:05:03,431
Even those are Catholic believers who
have said to be going against the law,
these people are also the children
of the King and they are the people.

617
01:05:03,551 –> 01:05:08,011
When a child is at fault, whether we cover
up for them with love or
we interrogate them of their crimes,

618
01:05:08,131 –> 01:05:12,261
it would be the teachings as a father. I,

619
01:05:12,381 –> 01:05:18,332
as a stringent father, I have asked that we
should interrogate them of their crimes.

620
01:05:22,384 –> 01:05:27,412
Catch everyone who believes in Catholic or those
believers who convey the teachings of Catholic.

621
01:05:27,532 –> 01:05:33,180
We would take into enforcement the Unification
of Private Law and for whichever household
that a criminal has been found, we would carry
out the interrogation of crime towards all five families.
[Unification of Private Law: A syetem where five
families would be grouped as one to track down…

622
01:05:33,300 –> 01:05:37,131
We would have to show them the strictness of the law.
…criminals and for the sake of tax collection,
taken to do forced labor, etc.]

623
01:05:55,070 –> 01:05:57,594
Missy…

624
01:06:11,714 –> 01:06:14,291
Stop!

625
01:06:42,094 –> 01:06:45,349
No! No!

626
01:06:45,662 –> 01:06:49,125
No!

627
01:07:07,933 –> 01:07:12,450
Aigoo, look at me.
Don’t wait for me.

628
01:07:12,570 –> 01:07:16,361
Go on first, the both of you. Go.
Physician Heo, it’s here.
Go!

629
01:07:16,481 –> 01:07:20,364
Even if you were born in the other world,
you would have become a very outstanding physician.

630
01:07:20,484 –> 01:07:25,444
Didn’t I say that I’m good at judging people.
I think what you said was right.

631
01:07:25,564 –> 01:07:30,886
Why is it that you want to say?
What exactly is your identity?
Who are you and where did you come from that
you would come to get involve in all these things?

632
01:07:31,006 –> 01:07:34,882
I am… just a physician.
I’m an ordinary physician.

633
01:07:35,002 –> 01:07:39,459
You have to release someone from the tribunal office jail.
The wife of Daewongun has been caught in the jail.

634
01:07:39,579 –> 01:07:43,329
With the charges as a Catholic believer.

635
01:07:43,449 –> 01:07:48,096
He says that those Catholic believer criminals
can’t just get out of jail as he likes.
Say that it’s by the order of me, the Daewongun,

636
01:07:48,403 –> 01:07:51,871
and get them to release all the criminals.
How do you intend to wrap this up?

637
01:07:51,991 –> 01:07:55,121
Hurry up!

As much as I took efforts to translate the whole episode, I’d appreciate if you credit me if you take out any parts.
