The flashback of So Hwa taking King Jinheung’s imperial decree away with her to escape after reading it. I would think that Deok Man has read the content of the Imperial decree as So Hwa would have given it to Deok Man. Mi Shil wonders who has taken it as Chil Sook comes in to tell Mi Shil that they must leave at once. Mi Shil said that it has gone missing & who has could have or been here.

Deok Man said she thought that Mi Shil would the stratagem of Yang Dong Shi Seo but it seems it is not to be
Yang Dong Shi Seo is one of the 36 stratagems which means makes a sound in the east then strike in the west. The meaning is that in any battle the element of surprise can provide an overwhelming advantage. Even when face to face with an enemy, surprise can still be employed by attacking where he least expects it. To do this you must create an expectation in the enemy’s mind through the use of a feint.
Deok man said that at present we still can’t access the enemies strength neither they have the military power to confront Mi Shil military might moreover Lord Jujin’s force has not arrive to render support full force.

Seol Won Rang tells Se Jong & Mi Saeng that it has now grown to become a civil war. Se Jong mentioned it is now civil war as Seol Won Rang confirm. He tells Se Jong that Mi Shil have made contingency plans that she has sent word to Oh Chan, the commander of Daeya Fortress to have make the necessary arrangement
Daeya Fortress is the former name of Hapcheon, Gyeongsangnam Do. Daeyaseong (fortress) is presently Gyeongnam Hapcheon County. The history kingdom of Gaya was destroyed by Isabu and Sadaham, the generals of Silla Kingdom in the 23rd year of the 24th King Jinheung (AD 562), Hapcheon county was reverted to Silla. Silla has advanced into the south western part of the newly occupied Hapcheon and established Daeyaju (Dayryangju) in order to defend against the attack by Baekje. It has also installed Dodokbu to establish Daeyaseong, a powerful strategic point. Afterwards, Silla unified the three states, thus the wandering people of Baekje have all yielded themselves to Silla. As a result, Daeyaseong lost its importance as a strategic location for advancement into south western part. Consequently, Hapcheon became degraded from ‘Ju’ into ‘Gun’ in December of the 16th year of ruling by the 35th king of Silla, Gyeongdeok (AD757), thus renamed as Gangyang-gun. The unification of three states was originated from the death of Kim Pum-Seok (son-in-law of King Taejong Muyeol, Kim Chun Chu), the lord of Daeyaseong in the course of fighting against Baekje. Even to this day, the monument of Hwarang from Hapcheon area who had died a glorious death on the battlefield is standing tall on the side of Hwang River. The temple Haeinsa temple one of the 3 principle temple in Korea, Chungryangsa temple & Yeonhosa temple located here. Daeya fortress was mentioned in Episode 9 as the fortress that is nearest the capital Seorabeol during the conflict with Baekje where Deok Man & the Yong Hwa Hyangdo were engage & did their tour of duty
Se Jong said that it will be Daeya Fortress. Mi Saeng said that if it is Daeya Fortress, then it will be impregnable as nobody had laid siege to its fortitude wall & there is a possibility of a seen victory. Seol Won Rang said that they have no time to rest their laurels, we are lacking in numbers & before the pursuers come to attack them from behind, they must make haste to reach the Daeya fortress for sanctuary. Se Jong said that his garrison will is under Ha Jong & he will come with the soldier. Se Jong asked them to depart. Seol Won Rang meets with Mi Shil to inform that they need to depart soon. Mi Shil acknowledge & asked whether Daeya Fortress has been inform as Seol Won Rang confirms that they has been notified that once there reach Seo Jin Fortress, he reckon that they will be waiting for their arrival. Mi Shil sighs as she affirms & Seol Won Rang asked her not to feel despair & lose heart. Mi Shil assure them of course but now the present is no longer can be compare to the former past. Now it is Deok Man’s turn who will be pursuing them relentless
Deok Man with her interim war cabinet, then first & foremost that they need to gain full control of the palace. Kim Yu Shin concurs that it is true that Mi Shil had dominated her influence at the palace for 40 years . Deok Man agree to sieve off the many of Mi Shil’s faction in the palace will not be an easy task to manoeuvre. Kim Seo Hyeon announce his arrival. Kim Seo Hyeon comes in & greets Deok Man who asked how did matter went. Kim Seo Hyeon could only reply with his apologies in regret. Deok Man is surprise. Kim Seo Hyeon said they almost has them but however because of the sudden appearance of Daeya Fortress Commander Oh Chan who came to intercept them.

Mi Shil concurs that victory is imminent unless that she doesn’t surrender that aspiration then victory is theirs to take. Mi Shil faction is filled with a boost in morale. Chil Sook order to his garrison that at this moment of tension that they must not lack or lose focus, furthermore they maybe reconnaissance spies that will sneak into the fortress to read the situation. Chil Sook asked for their utmost frugality & attentiveness from his garrison as the garrison acknowledge the order & Seok Bum dismiss the garrison back to the barracks & their posting & be aware the identity of their comrades in arms that is around them as the garrison dismiss & Chil Sook about to leave when Seok Bum raise his query that whether this is in the end a civil war. Chil Sook said that it must be it. Seok Bum said that Mi Shil in whatsoever circumstances of situation will always emphasize the important of Silla’ virtues that governed her action. Chil Sook asked Seok Bum that at present situation does it seem otherwise. Seok Bum replies that it play no concern for him. Chil Sook asked him why, Seok Bum answer that Mi Shil has render her favour a person like with a lowly & humble origin & has be given the honour to be one of the Captain of a Seorabeol cadre corps & that his family had abundance & fill to eat & wear. Seok Bum said that it is not Silla but for Mi Shil who has done good for him & that he is in her gratitude & debt. Chil Sook asked Seok Bum that Mi Shil gratitude & debt has surpasses even the virtues of justice & righteousness. Seok Bum asked for pardon but that is matter at hand is of that conclusion. Seok Bum realise that this is the only things he can contribute from a person that has so many lackings. Seok Bum said that if his remark has offended & besiege Chil Sook in any manner, he apologise. Chil Sook walks away then turn back that he has the same concur sentiment
Deok Man with her war cabinet & tells them that although they don’t wish to see this from happening but however just in case if a civil war would occur the most urgent agenda at hand is that they need to reorganise is the Ministry of Military Affairs organisation chart. Kim Seo Hyeon concurs that all this while, Seol Won Rang was heading that Ministry for a long time. If don’t rectify the weed out the impurities, they would not win this war
Suk Gun is a reorganise or clean up exercise to sieve or to weed out personnel that is suspicious or that oppose to them
Kim Yu Shin said that his father & him will take up this responsibilities with the utmost effort to clean up the ministry. Deok Man agrees for Kim Yu Shin & father to proceed with it.

Deok Man said that if they don’t act swiftly like a lightning or a breeze passing then it will deteriorate & escalate to become anarchy. Deok man asked her war cabinet to hasten rapidly their action to curb the decay
Yeom Jong asking Bi Dam why Deok Man didn’t call him to attend the war cabinet meeting. Bi Dam boringly flipping pages that he doesn’t have an official posting that qualifies for his attendance. Yeom Jong said then Bi Dam should go & asked for one. Bi Dam sighs that it will be too bothersome. Bi Dam said he like the stealth work & would rather execute according to Princess Deok Man’s command, it has always been that case until now. Yeom Jong said that it is not seem like it was before that they are now in the winning side & it is befitting to that they will reward meritorious subjects.
Nun Gong Haeng Seong is rewards merits that is accordance to exemplary service
Bi Dam stare at Yeom Jong as Kim Chun Chu is backed by Kim Yong Chun, while Kim Yu Shin is backed by his father Kim Seo Hyeon; Al Cheon has an important posting in the Royal Household due to his established nobility & his father influence in court. Then when it comes to Bi Dam, what do Bi Dam have that he doesn’t have any backing or influence. Yeom Jong said that if Bi Dam continues with his present course, he will get no where & wouldn’t finds a place to set root to a foundation. Then Deok Man comes in & orders Bi Dam to take his reconnaissance team to go & infiltrate Daeya Fortress. Bi Dam said he will do so.

Yeom Jong said that they are just seen as an outfit that roaming outside collecting intelligence. Bi Dam said why Yeom is dampening his happiness that Yeom Jong thinking is so complex. Yeom Jong said that he is being complex, it is just that Bi Dam has spent so much time with Moon Noh that he is divorce from how societies really works. Bi Dam said he understand how societies works well enough. Bi Dam stop to give it a 2nd thought
The Captain of the guards are pleading their innocence to Kim Seo Hyeon that they only adhere to the orders of Seol Won Rang & should be held responsible or accountable as they obey Seol Won Rang’s orders therefore they are innocent of the crime accused as the plea for their innocence. Joo Bang, Seo Ji & Wyol Ya are going through the document in Seol Won Rang’s office as Joo Bang points out that these name list of the men who joined Seol Won Rang in the battle of Pallyangchi Ridge

Kim Yu Shin said they have no alternative expect this method. It is best that they are able to sieve out the personnel who are connected with Seol Wing Rang. Joo Bang complains that this is tedious as Kim Seo Hyeon said if they don’t, there is no way that they able to take an army to confront Mi Shil in battle. Kim Seo Hyeon said that Wyol Ya & Joo Bang can only seize the time & in the shortest time possible to find out their connections & involvement

The staff said that the finds they have use for the construction was collect by Se Jong & Ha Jong & the person who is Royal Architect of the project has gone missing the day Mi Shil left the palace
Seon Seong is the person or architect under Royal command to construct Royal Palace
Deok Man said even if that is so, she can’t think that he is the only person who has knowledge of the construction & the staff hesitate to reply Deok Man & tells that because it was a major construction that require major funding, it was done under stealth condition that they were not informed or have any knowledge. Deok Man is getting nowhere with him so he dismiss the staff

Bi Dam saw him leaving Daeya fortress, so Bi Dam apprehended him & it seems that he had report all to Mi Shil. The messenger beg for his life as he was just following orders. Deok Man asked why he relay the report to Daeya fortress. The messenger said that Mi Shil was the person who was overseeing & supervising the bulwark’s construction, so the Governor of Gwangmun district orders them to convey reports to her. Yeom Jong said that timber was the casualty of the fire & it was completely burnt, so they are requesting for extra emergency funds to replace the losses. The messenger said that he did no wrong as he just follow orders & beg for his life

Deok Man stand before the court & tells them that as of now, she will overlook the misdemeanours that the official in this court has done in the pass & will not press further but then as of this moment if anyone should report any affairs that regards to our nation Silla other than herself Princess Deok Man.

Deok Man asked whether it comes to this time that she will have to use that imperial decree. Bi Dam comes to her & greets her as Deok Man looks blank & he asked what seem to be troubling Deok Man that she look so occupied in her thoughts. Deok man brushes it off as nothing. BI Dam asked if there is anything that he can help her with to give her some comfort, is there none…although that he seems he can’t contribute very much. Deok man said that to have come to this very stage, it is something that she hasn’t started to imagine that it is happening but if Bi Dam didn’t exist that she doesn’t know what she will do in her darkest hours, it is beyond her imagination. Deok Man said that what Bi Dam is saying on his lacking, also now they are face with chaos & disorder but wait as matter is stabilise I will render you an important task & designation. Bi Dam question the important designation is referring to….Deok Man said that Bi Dam & Yeom Jong’s intelligence gathering network, she plans to legalise & make it as a tool of her administration of her rule that this is consider the palace secret service & there is no better person to lead this than Bi Dam & she trust that whatever secret operative she is certain that Bi Dam will excel in the matter. Bi Dam glee with smile of his new designation. Deok Man said that there are times that she looks at Bi Dam like a kid & asked if he so thrill by her proposal. Bi Dam said that it is Deok Man who rendered trust on his ability. Then Deok man tells that she is giving Bi Dam his maiden mission that he needs to accomplished it.

Deok Man still contemplating as Kim Yu Shin & Al Cheon comes that they inform that Deok Man’s decree has been notify to all official of the nation. Deok Man acknowledge it. Kim Yu Shin said that Mi Shil departure & the power vacuum that she left was more than he could have imagine could be so greatly felt in the void. Deok Man said none of them has the prior experience to administrate the running of a nation but Mi Shil’s faction has the know how. Deok Man affirms that at this present moment what she require is people of expertise. Even if she is cordially affable in talent but it can’t be just stand alone person could able to succeed on their own single accord. She needs people to help her, the people who share the same boat with them that is why people & the investment of people, this is why Mi Shil is so advent
That is the reason why Mi Shil was so avant garde in conserving her investment of talents then coaxed them to become her faction to manipulate their talents, Deok Man said that she must follow the same path as Mi Shil did & there is no alternative, she will have to snatch & coax Mi Shil’s faction to deflect to her side & draining her talents away. Kim Yu Shin asked what is that Deok Man is referring to. Deok Man said that her mother So Hwa has present her a precious gift. Initially I never wanted to use that gift but it seem that the appropriate time has come that force her to do so. Kim Yu Shin asked what is she making reference to. Deok Man said that she has order Bi Dam to retrieve it for her & reckon he will be back soon with the thing. Al Cheon said that Bi Dam has vacant his reconnaissance post in Daeya fortress for this task. Deok Man affirms it & until BI Dam returns the Imperial Household Guards will be substituting the role. Al Cheon understands
Bi Dam goes to dig the hidden box at the Dan San tree lace with streamers
Streamers on the tree. Tibetan Buddhists string prayer flags between trees and from poles on stupas, high mountain passes and other places. These flags are printed with mantras, and every time they flutter in the breeze they are spreading the merit of that mantra’s message through the air to all living beings. The Korean peninsula’s three coasts are lapped by the ocean, while its mountains, rivers, fields, and seas stand out in sharp contrast, amid a constant changing of its distinctive seasons. Accordingly, the inhabitants of long ago spoke of their beautiful land as “embroidered rivers and mountains.” The land of Korea is free from major earthquakes and active volcanoes. Rain falls in quantities conducive for agriculture, while the climate is relatively mild.
As a result, the people could maintain a stable livelihood by working hard in accordance with the principles of nature. It was thus natural for Koreans to think of nature as a motherly being who takes care of mankind. To Koreans, nature was both an eternal spiritual essence and a comforting maternal figure. Accordingly, the indigenous religion of Korea was centred on the worship of nature. Koreans believed that life would not be possible unless the principles of nature were respected. This is part of their Shamanism practices that prevail until today
The conceptual roots of Korean culture lies in the worship of nature, similar to the Japanese Shinto. The imported ideology of Buddhism was added to this around the fourth century, while Taoist thought became widely disseminated about the seventh century. It was from this ideological background that the Korean garden was created. From the 15th century, the Song Confucianism of Zhu xi became the ruling ideology of Joseon, along with landscape architecture coming under the influence of such concepts as yin-yang, the five elements, and geomancy.
In Shinto ceremonies holy streamers called gohei are hung on holy straw ropes or branches of the holy sakaki tree to invoke the presence of the kami. Gohei are also know as Oho-nusa or “great offerings” and are still in use on important occasions. The Oho-nusa consists of two wands placed side by side, from the ends of which hang hemp fibre (Cannabis sativa) and several strips of paper. One of the wands is made of wood from sakaki, Cleyera japonica. The other is made from a bamboo stem. Their use is connected with an old Japanese rule of etiquette that presents to a superior should be delivered attached to a branch of a tree to mark the respectful aloofness of the giver from the receiver.
Bi Dam finds it as he dusts the dirt off. Then out of curiosity of the contend in the box, he opens to finds that it is the document & he recognise & recalls that So Hwa hold so dear & tightly in her bosom before meeting with Deok Man even when she was eating her meal. Bi Dam then was curious why So Hwa was so careful. Bi Dam goes & reads the document & shock at the content that it is King Jinheung imperial decree to kill Mi Shil as he collapse on his knees & lost for words & thoughts. Deok Man is waiting for the document but still se no sign of Bi Dam return. Bi Dam just sat there blank.
Joo Bang & the other cadres are in disguise for intelligence gathering as Guk Suk Heun is curious that Deok man 1st met Joo Bang disguise as a monk. Go Do said that they con Deok Man many times. Joo Bang said at that time, they indeed pull off a lot of con jobs. Dae Pung asked how did Joo Bang runs his cons that Joo bang can confess & admit to these petty crimes. Joo Bang said that recently he realise how ephemeral & despairing life journey is. GO Do laughs that how could Joo Bang feel that way as his life being despairing as Joo Bang hits GO Do‘s head. Then Joo Bang reminds Dae Pung that they are on intelligent gathering, address & prattling Joo Bang by his designation as Daenangdu is not appropriate. Dae Pung realise his mistake as Joo Bang warn them to be careful with their words
Bi Dam digesting the truth that king Jinheung wanted Mi Shil killed & wonder why is the document still keep in existence until the present, Bi Dam question why Mi Shil has keep this document all this while & asked for whys. Bi Dam makes his way to Daeya fortress instead of returning to Deok Man. In Daeya fortress everybody queue for checks at the gate before gain access in entry as activities are busy with Cavalry coming in & out of the gates. Bi Dam is in the queue. As the guards at the gate asking what they are carrying & where their destination is. Bi Dam is also in the queue when he notices Bi Dam in the queue as well. As it was Bi Dam turns, the guards asked him what is the purpose of his entry as Bi Dam said that he is to do some trading. Bi Dam is let through. Go Do makes the identification that it is Bi Dam. Joo Bang said that it is indeed him but why did Princess Deok Man sent them to replace him as Go Do said wasn’t Bi Dam away on another assignment for Princess Deok Man & why he is here now. Joo Bang recalls So Hwa holding closely to King Jinheung’s imperial decree as Joo Bang approaches her that if this is really so important then she should pass this to Bi Dam for safekeeping that there will be any person can come near him to snatch it away. So Hwa rightfully refuse as she said that Bi Dam has can’t never posses this document. Joo Bang asked on what reason as didn’t she mentioned that this is a weapon that can be act as Mi Shil’s Achilles heel. So So Hwa insist that the more the reason that this document has connection with Bi Dam. Joo Bang is surprise as So Hwa holds the document close to her bosom that arouse Joo Bang’s suspicion on Bi Dam
Bi Dam finds his way through Daeya fortress & finds his way through heavily guarded Daeya fortress, as he was about to approached Mi Shil’s chambers, some patrolling guard pass by as Bi Dam seek shelter on the top of the ceiling as the soldier pause to sense something strange, Bi Dam jumps in them & kill them before they could sound the alarm. Bi Dam comes in to Mi Shil’s chamber as Mi Shil wasn’t all surprise of his visit as Bi Dam put his blade at Mi Shil. Mi Shil cordially asked what is his purpose of coming here. Mi Shil asked whether it is Deok Man’s order to send him to assassinate her or is it becasue that Bi Dam idolise Deok Man that he is here to gain meritorious service from his beloved. Bo Dam said he came her out of curiousity over a matter that he can’t comprehend to ascertained. Mi Shil surprise that Bi Dam came to her for curiousity sake
Bi Dam asked why & but hesitates to show her King Jinheung’s imperial decree, then change the subject that day before the incident, she has give instruction to Yeom Jong to tell him to take Bi Dam away in an excursion for a few days. Bi Dam wants the answer & scream at Mi Shil to quickly answer him. Mi Shil tell him that he is an impediment. Bi Dam said he is just an obstacle for her the sake of her vile aspiration that she is trying to realise that aspiration. Mi Shil said that it must be indeed so if you refer it as that. Bi Dam said that he is always the stumbling block stand in the way of Mi Shil’s aspiration. Then this is consider yet again that Mi Shil have abandon Bi Dam once again, should it be better that she killed Bi Dam once & for all. Mi Shil affirms that it was indeed her mistake on her part, it is because of the reason, this mistake has cause a inflicting occurring arse of a pain that she has end up with this situation of results. Bi Dam can’t believe that Mi Shil declare him as a mistake but Bi Dam query why then as he about to take out King Jinheung’s imperial decree when commotion is heard from outside to go & look into Mi Shil’s chamber as Mi Saeng comes in to report of a possible intruder & he sees Bi Dam. Bi Dam return his blade to Mi Shil’s neck as Bo Jong draws his sword but Mi Shil order them to halt. Mi Saeng 7 Bo Jong is surprise at Mi Shil’s remark. Mi Shil tells that Bi Dam because of curiousity has come to her to seek for answers, so he is a guest of hers. Mi Shil tells Bi Dam that he is excused. Mi Shil is shock at her sister’s behaviour. Mi Shil tells Bi Dam to hurry away. Bo Jong stands down. Bi Dam can’t make sense of Mi Shil’s incoherent behaviour
Se Jong is shock as he is inform that Bi Dam was here & has infiltrate Mi Shil’s chamber at blade point & Mi Shil has let him go. Ha Jong can’t understand who is Bi Dam is that why his mother always let him off the hook each time. Mi Saeng question that Seol Won Rang might know something about this matter & the answer to their queries over Mi Shil’s behaviour. Seol Won Rang said he doesn’t know. Ha Jong is irritate that Seol Won Rang has to know something & he must vouch his opinion. We are finally being lead into this situation, it is all because of the wretch Bi Dam. Bo Jong concurs with Ha Jong that his mother allow Bi Dam to be send away on an excursion doesn’t seem to be his mother signature of handling matters Seol Won Rang goes to see Mi Shil & asked the purpose of Bi Dam visit. Mi Shil doesn’t replies as Seol Won Rang persisted as Mi Shil replies that the day that Bi Dam came to save Princess Deok Man from the palace, all of them must been puzzled to know what reason was. Bi Dam was puzzle & wanted to know what the reason was too, why didn’t Mi Shil kill him & instead allow to live
Joo Bang informs to Kim Yu Shin that Bi Dam was seen in Daeya fortress & caught Kim Yu Shin surprise that he went to Daeya fortress. Joo Bang confirm that it is clearly seen that he stealth his way into Daeya fortress. Go Do said he witness Bi Dam with his own eyes. Al Cheon asked isn’t Bi Dam send to do an important assignment for Princess Deok Man & why did he go to Daeya fortress
Deok Man is now pacing with anxiety that Bi Dam has not return with King Jinheung’s imperial decree. Bi Dam contemplating what to do with King Jinheung’s imperial decree. Deok Man is inform by Kim Yu Shin that Bi Dam was seen in Daeya Fortress & she is surprise. Kim Yu Shin said that Bi Dam covertly enter Daeya fortress. Kim Yu Shin asked on the content of Bi Dam assignment that Princess Deok Man send him to do & what is it that he must bring back. Kim Yu Shin said that Daeya fortress is where Mi Shil is residing. The time there were in the valley stream, Deok Man stops Kim Yu Shin from saying further. Kim Yu Shin said that he likely doesn’t put any assumption on a person & he apologise for his speculation but Deok Man has her doubts
Deok Man leaves her chamber & Joo Bang is waiting for her outside. Kim Yu Shin asked what is the matter. Joo Bang said that he needs to have a private moment with Princess Deok Man if he may. Kim Yu Shin leaves to left them alone. Deok Man asked what is the matter that they need to speak in private. Joo Bang relay his story about So Hwa with he both escape during their flee from the palace, said to have taken something from Mi Shil’s basement study has some connection with Bi Dam, Deok Man is surprise as Joo Bang said therefore she refuse to pass the thing to Bi Dam because if that reason. Joo Bang said that So Hwa somehow withholding something that she refuse to reveal & he wonders why she would do that. Deok Man could guess that how can the King Jinheung’s imperial decree to kill Mi Shil has any connection with Bi Dam…Deok Man went back to digest what Joo Bang has mentioned & question who is Bi Dam really is….
Bi Dam comes in & greet her as she finds that he came back empty handed & sits down
Deok Man: The assignment that I have asked you to do to bring that box back, have you brought it?
Bi Dam keep silent
Deok Man: Pass it back to me
Bi Dam: It was not there
Deok Man is surprise by his reply
Bi Dam: I have dug several holes everywhere but only managed to finds the box….but the content was empty
Deok Man has her doubts
Deok Man: As of now, whatever you say, will have my trust, without any doubts or suspicion. This trust will become the foundation that mould that the bases of our relationship is shape in the future…Is it really there was no content in the box?
Bi Dam took his time to reply
Bi Dam: Yes…..None
Deok Man: Didn’t you go & conceal it?
Bi Dam shakes his head
Bi Dam: No I didn’t
Deok Man: Then, you have gone to Daeya fortress, is that a matter of fact, true?
Bi Dam doesn’t directly answer Deok Man
Deok Man: You have gone to see Mi Shil?
Bi Dam: Yes…..I did not want to return empty-handed to see Your Highness….therefore I went there wanting to attempt to assassinate her
Deok Man has her doubts on authenticity of Bi Dam’s story
Bi Dam: As long as we kill Mi Shil, all this will matter will end, isn’t that so? But however, I had failed
Deok Man is losing trust on Bi Dam as she wants to give him a last chance to convince her otherwise
Deok Man: I will ask this from you for the last time……Mi Shil & You are…..what is the connection?
Meanwhile Mi Shil is also interrogated by her faction on her relationship with Bi Dam
Mi Saeng: Sister! This is matter that concern us greatly & staking our life & death depends on the matter
Ha Jong: Yes,…..Mother!
Mi Shil is silent
Se Jong: Seju & Bi Dam, between the both of you…what relationship is there?
Back to Deok Man & Bi Dam
Deok Man: Mi Shil & you, between the both of you what is your relationship?
Bi Dam: Mi Shil & I…
Back to Mi Shil & her faction
Mi Shil: Son. He is my son
Ha Jong is shock by her revelation
Ha Jong: Eh! What are you saying?
Mi Saeng: Ssss…Sister.
Se Jong is just as shock, Mi Saeng looks as he is about to faint as Mi Shil sit there expressionless & twitches her raise eyebrows

Se Jong is just as shock, Mi Saeng looks as he is about to faint as Mi Shil sit there expressionless & twitches her raise eyebrows
Mi Shil: Bi Dam…..is this Mi Shil & King Jinji’s posterity…Hyeong Jong
Mi Shil’s faction is shock
Meanwhile Bi Dam tells Deok Man that Mi Shil & him had no prior relationship. Deok Man accepts Bi Dam answer as Bi Dam affirm it, as Bi Dam tries to explain that he has mentioned before that he went to Daeya fortress was, Deok Man cuts him short that she has heard enough. Deok Man said that he has said there is none, she will trust his words on it but Deok Man shows fluctuation in her outlook to Bi Dam story, she doesn’t fully buy his explanation. Deok Man in her private moments wonders why Bi Dam is withholding the truth from her
Cavalry riding to Daeya Fortress . Chil Sook is running the logistic for the offensive siege in Daeya fortress by indicating the West, East & North gates that he has deploy their soldier evenly to anticipate for an imminent siege. Seol Won Rang said that at present inventory of grain ration stands at 2,500 seom, even without access to outside intervention, they can sustain for at least a year. Se Jong moreover that they has send pleas to the neighbouring provincial governors, if one should reply the rest will follow suit in participation. Seol Won Rang agrees that if that is said should happened then their influence in Daeya fortress surrounding will increase in proponent. Seol Won Rang said that he will repeat the sending of the pleas to the provincial governors. Seol Won Rang finds that Mi Shil is not attentive as he asked Mi Shil whether she is listening in. Mi Shil wakes up & admits that she is listening & asked them to proceed as suggested. Se Jong & Seol Won Rang knows that Mi Shil is not participating & her thought is wondering else where
Deok Man with her war cabinet as Kim Yong Chun asked that according to what Kim Seo Hyeon has reported that they must incite the path to a civil war. Kim Seo Hyeon said there is already sign & symptoms of stir up to civil war, there is no other alternative. Kim Yu Shin said that however Daeya fortress is a impregnable fortification fortress. The fortress has never once been overtaken by a siege warfare. Kim Seo Hyeon said that this is why that they must lay siege with overpowering is effect & strength to gain the upper hand that to stage a quick & striking offensive. Al Cheon asked where are they going at this instant go & get these military support to be overpowering is effect & strength to lay siege. Even with the combine forces of Lord Jujin & Lord Jin Hye, the number is only amounts not more than 10,000 soldier. Wyol Ya apologise for his intrusion but he suggest the use of the border garrison. Kim Yu Shin disagrees & a cardinal offense that they can’t utilise them for deployment. Wyol Ya asked why can’t they as this is the only quick alternative solution to end this conflict in the shortest time. Deok Man oppose & concurs that the border garrison are not to be touch & it is unacceptable that the border garrison be mobilise & remove them from their stations. This will mean that the borderline will be weaken between them & Baekje will be undermined their country security & it will be more threatening & risky than the present internal stalemate situation they are facing. Kim Seo Hyeon said however there is a possibility that Mi Shil might deploy the border garrison & take this alternative to increase her military strength. Deok Man understand Mi Shil well enough that she will not mobilise the border garrison & remove them from the border
Mi Shil concurs that they will never touch or remove border garrison from their present station. If the border is has been undermined & weaken then it will give way to Silla’s downfall. Se Jong said that this is a golden opportunity to concluded this conflict swiftly. Ha Jong concurs & pleas that they just need to mobilise one of the border garrison is sufficient to end the conflict in their favour. Mi Shil refused them flat & warns that none of them will make such careless mistake to deploy them. Mi Shil said there must be no contact or any mobilise movement in the border orders from them & tell them if they are clear on the matter
Deok Man contemplating as Bi Dam goes to her to asked why she is troubled in her thoughts. Deok Man sighs to asked whether he thinks there is an alternative for them so that they can avoid this civil war. Bi Dam asked whether wars intimidate her fears or her worries of the ill consequences of the aftermath of the war. Deok Man said that it will lead emotion scar & pains to the subordinates who do battle, for the sake to treat this scars & pains will drain up many of their resources, time & energy. In a country what can be do deplorable then to wages conflict with your own people that it aches & pains her that this can’t be avoidable, therefore they need to oppress this swiftly, Daeya fortress should prepare itself for a hard offensive
Joo Bang & Go Do comes to Deok Man as they have an idea that is worth a try. Joo Bang pushes Go Do to tell her. Go Do said that Joo Bang should tell her as it is his idea in the 1st place, why does he need him to tell Princess Deok Man. Deok Man asked what is it that they want o say to her. Joo Bang said that he had given some thought on the matter, & would it be possible along these lines. Joo Bang tells the scenario when Qin went to invade Wei by making a dam in Huang He then releasing the retaining water & flooded Dae Ryeong Seong & make it to become submerge like a boundless ocean. So they thought whether they can use the same stratagem to do the same in Hwang Gang water, how about giving this a try
Dae Ryeong Seong is Daliang, the capital of Wei, now Kaifeng County Henan Province, China. It is located at the south bank of the Huang He (Yellow river)
Hwang Gang that spans in stream 116.9km & original source from Mt. Sambong in Jeongseon County Gangwondo is a tributary of the Nakdong River the longest river in South Korea that flow to the middle part of Nakdong River, flowing through Gyeongsangnamdo pass through Daegu & Busan in southeastern South Korea that flow into the Korean Straits (South Sea). It originates in Geochang, from the union of various streams flowing from the slopes of Deogysan, and meets the Nakdong in Hapcheon County where Daeya fortress is. It covers about 117 kilometers. The name “Hwang” literally means “yellow,” and refers to the yellow sand found along much of the river’s course.
Warring States period (475-221 B.C.), when the numerous small states of the Spring and Autumn period had been whittled down to seven dominant major states of Qin, Qi, Chu, Wei, Han, Zhao and Yan. King Qin Ying Zhen later Emperor Qin Shi Huang Ti wanted a strategy to annexed the 6 states. In order not to have the 6 states united in alliance in order to able resist Qin, Emperor Qin attack the weakest of the state which is Han, the nearest neighbour to Qin then Zhao then Wei. The Qin army decided to aim for Wei capital of Dae Ryeong Seong or in Chinese Daliang by making a water ram & dam to harness the flowing river and flood the whole area to make the fortified city an island in the middle of a man-made lake a few metres deep & bring the city its knees
Bi Dam asked how can do this aquatic warfare during this season, it is not the rainy season & situation that the river flows is not drastic volume of water in able to achieve that results. Joo Bang realise his idea will not work as Go Do said that he has told him so. Joo Bang said there isn’t water to be use, it is a shame. Joo Bang said that the 3 Kingdom of Korea, all rivers system flows usually flow from East to West. They are situated & located on the east side of Daeya fortress, wouldn’t it be perfect location but what a shame. Go Do said didn’t they tell them there isn’t sufficient volume of water. Joo Bang & Go Do apologise that they were much of a help. Deok Man asked them not to apologise as whenever anything pops up any great ideas in their mind, be free to let her know. Joo Bang & Go Do about to leave when Bi Dam asked them to hold on & wait & asked them what did they just said. Go Do repeats the last sentence that they don’t have sufficient volume of water. Bi Dam said he is not referring to that, Joo Bang went to the next phase that they mentioned was it is something that they are located on the east side. Bi Dam said that he has a stratagem that can be swift. Bi Dam asked her to raise & come with him. Deok Man leaves with him as Joo Bang & Go Do are happy with their contribution in planning & wonder what was it…east….locate in the east….
Bi Dam discuss this with Deok Man, Kim Yu Shin & Kim Chun Chu with the map of Silla river system that with exception of Hwangsangang, most river is the 3 Kingdom most of them flows to east to west that is flowing towards the Yellow Sea (Korean called it the West Sea). Daeya fortress near proximity is surrounded by rivers & lakes that has similar flow system
Hwangsangang is the former name of Nakdong River which flows into the Korean straits (Korean called it the South Sea) that separates Korea & Japan
Al Cheon asked whether Bi Dam is suggesting using Aquatic warfare in this season. BI Dam said that they are not but do the exact opposite. Bi Dam said that it is here as he showed on the map that they will harness the river to curb & plug all flow of water to Daeya fortress & drain them out of water by making an embankment . Daeya fortress might be abundant in grain reserve but they soon find deprive of water & without it, what will the situation in the fortress be. Kim Yu Shin said there are many stream & creek that flow pass Daeya fortress, it will be quite a daunting task to identify them & build embankments. Bi Dam said that it is true, so the small creeks they will poison the water. If they do this, Daeya fortress water provision will be dried up & it needs only less than half a month to do so. In that half month, Daeya fortress will be a living hell
Kim Yu Shin said that if they do that that many agriculture land that surround Daeya fortress will be affected & it will be destitute barren to farm for many year to come, just think that how many refugees will it create in this destitute land. At that time, they will have to use resort to the reign of terror to suppress hatred. Kim Yu Shin asked Deok Man to reconsider her decision to use such drastic measure. Daeya fortress is also her land that belongs to her sovereignty. Deok Man agrees as of now, she doesn’t wishes to use Bi Dam’s stratagem. Bi Dam is taken back that Deok man has reject her stratagem. Joo Bang tells that Bi Dam has written befuddled look on his face when he brought out his stratagem to Princess Deok Man. Dae Pung asked what is the stratagem about. Go Do said that Joo Bang is not certain, despite the many ideas he brings up, Joo Bang always doesn’t have the slightest idea what they are. Guk San Heun concurs that it is correct, from the mouth of Joo Bang but doesn’t know the meaning of the stratagem. Al Cheon cadre asked then what stratagem that Bi Dam has plan. Joo Bang said from his expression he only utter that it is exactly that to that extent. Joo Bang still wonder that did he suggest to Bi Dam
Deok Man tells her people that she will not utilise Bi Dam’s stratagem but however likewise she will follow his stratagem in theory. Kim Yu Shin agrees that what Bi Dam stratagem has suggest, they will leak this to the adversary as intelligence. Kim Chun Chu said that the military intelligence will discreetly make know to the adversary. Bi Dam & Al Cheon agrees. Kim Yu Shin plug the water provision & spread the rumour of the potential that stream & creek has been poison is sufficient to send Daeya fortress to become a living hell in half a month
Deok Man leaves as Bi Dam call for her & asked what is the meaning that she will go & conduct negotiation talk or pow wow with Mi Shil. They have already found an idea that will force Mi Shil into submission & a road to impasse, why they is a need for Deok Man to engage in discussion talks. Deok Man said that it is this reason for this why they has to force Mi Shil into parley. Deok Man said although for Mi Shil, it will with difficult for her to accepts any suggested condition that is laid on the table. BI Dam said that if it conditions….then. Deok Man gives Bi Dam a handwritten letter from her & she asked BI Dam to deliver to Mi Shil as postman. Bi Dam asked why must he be the one to send. Deok Man wants this letter to be personally deliver to Mi Shil hands & asked Bi Dam to see to this that Mi Shil does. Bi Dam takes the letter from Deok Man
Bi Dam bearer of white flag that a protective sign of a truce or ceasefire & a request for negotiation breach Daeya fortress by jumping their blockade fences as the guard asked who goes there & what is his purpose.
White flags were recorder as early as AD 109 by Tacitus but it was also recorded the use in the Han Dynasty (AD25-229)
Bi Dam said that he is the negotiator & a courier to deliver a letter strictly to Mi Shil. The guard opens the gates for Bi Dam. Gate open & Bi Dam rides into Daeya fortress. Bi Dam & Mi Shil said that this time, Bi Dam volunteer for this courier job to deliver this letter with the reason that he came to kill her. Bi Dam takes the letter & tell Mi Shil that Princess Deok Man has asked this to be deliver for her reading. Mi Shil surprise that it should be from Princess Deok Man. Mi Shil takes & reads it & laughs that Deok Man wish to request a one to one private discussion & meeting with her. Mi Shil said if this is not deciding the truce or the terms of surrender, she sees it unnecessary in this. Bi Dam asked why, does she have fears. Mi Shil said how would she have any fear or dread with facing
Seol Won Rang comes in & see Bi Dam presence then asked that can he have a private word with her for a moment. Mi Shil reads the intelligence that they going to close off & plug the water from the river & remaining water system will be poison. Seol Won Rang affirms that Daeya fortress has never been besiege from enemy attack that is coming from the east, therefore they never foreseen this as a weakness that he wasn’t able to detect
Baekje is located on the west & Goguryeo locate up north of Silla, east will be internally from Silla.
Mi Shil crush the letter & queries whether this is indeed their covet military intelligence is genuine or not. Seol Won Rang concurs that this is with perhaps that they indeed intent to create & instill fear & panic atmosphere in the fortress that they deliberately leak this intelligence to them. Mi Shil said wouldn’t it be that the garrison of the fortress has already has knowledge of it. Seol Won Rang confirms that it should by now, that this rumour by reckon have spread like wild fire around & throughout the fortress. Mi Shil query on the intent to create & instill fear & panic, Mi Shil tells that Deok Man does not intent & reluctant to engage in this war. Seol Won Rang is surprise as Mi Shil leaves & goes back to Bi Dam to throw the crush paper at Bi Dam. Mi Shil know that they has force her into submission & a road to impasse & then as charity to offer their extending hands. Mi Shil dare them to go head & give this a try, to go & close off & plug the water from the river & throw poison into the water system. Do they think that if they do such action, this will makes Mi Shil fear Deok Man. Bi Dam said that if there is really no fear, wouldn’t you engage to meet at once
Deok Man said that she will give amnesty to Mi Shil & her faction who collaborate with her & suggest that they combines their forces through reconciliation. Al Cheon is surprise & asked what is Deok Man implying. Al Cheon said aren’t they the people who has stage an insurgency to topple the Royal Household. Deok Man said that it the manner that speaking on behalf of Silla, then there is awaiting them a grand ambition that they need to aspire that is to follow. Deok Man said that that ambition needs the combined allegiance of both forces to fulfil & to realise. Kim Yu Shin is surprise at the thought of an alliance with Mi Shil
Hap Cheon is the reference of the Six state Yan, Zhao, Han, Wei, Qi & Chu alliance against Qin during the Warring States period to fend of Qin ambition to annexe them into one country that eventually called China & obviously the alliance failed
Wyol Ya is against the alliance with Mi Shil that they have use stratagem to force Mi Shil into submission & a road to impasse a corner & victory will definitely be theirs for the taking. Al Cheon concurs that this is out of the question & impracticable. Deok Man said if they want to fight then they will proceed to engage in open battles with them but however to curb Mi Shil’s faction will need many years to suppress & subside their influences, In her estimation she reckon that this may take them years & the manpower require for return normalcy may take decades. Kim Chun Chu question that if there is a possibility in hind sight that they able to establish the alliance with Mi Shil. King Jinpyeong is inform & surprise that Deok Man wants to establish an alliance with Mi Shil. Princess Man Myeong said that Deok Man has already handed a letter requesting the alliance. Queen Maya asked what is Deok Man thinking by doing this
Deok Man is her moments of contemplation. Kim Yu Shin comes to her & tell her for the sake of Deok Man’s aspiration & grand vision ambition, he came to do his best in his effort without any doubt or protest on his part & here after he will still continues to do so but however this time, he is inconceivable that this is workable prospect or is it perhaps viable. Deok Man said that what is foremost aspect in the matter, what is that practical to them as of now. Deok Man has mentioned before that they have no prior experience to administrate or govern this nation but Mi Shil’s faction has the knowhow. Deok Man said that this is correct that this is at present the most urgent matter to need to attain talents, the people with expertise. Kim Yu Shin asked that Deok Man is perhaps thinking but would she dare to use that talent. Deok Man confirms Kim Yu Shin’s guess work that she dare & making Mi Shil one of the expertise of talent. Deok Man asked within Seorabeol is there anyone that can be confer as the 2nd Mi Shil that posses that expertise of talent
Deok Man set up the summit meeting with Mi Shil. Deok Man is looking at the preparation of the table setting as Bi Dam tells that both parties has come to agreed to keep their army at least the radius of 10 ri
1 ri is a measure of length & distance equivalent 323m. This is the Tang Dynasty (AD618-907) measurement unit. I assume that it will be appropriate for this period the drama is set. Although South Korea takes their measurement of “Ri” from the Han Dynasty measurement that is about 392.72m There are various variation of the measurement of Ri from different Dynasty period 358.8 -578m
Deok Man sees Mi Shil’s palanquin that announces her arrival at the distance escorted by Chil Sook. Deok Man & Bi Dam is reserved whether this will work. Chil Sook greets Deok Man as Mi Shil alight from her palanquin. As they both greet each other cordially in respect. Mi Shil enjoyed her refreshment cup of tea as Deok Man suggests an alliance. Deok Man confirms that she wants an alliance as the foundation to have a peace negotiation between the parties. Mi Shil asked why in that, that Deok Man has already has a bartering chip in Daeya fortress’ weakness, why she needs to play such a charades. Mi Shil said isn’t it that Deok Man has found a way to suppress & besiege the insurgents then massacre them all as a sufficient strategy. Deok Man said that it is a pity if they are killed. Mi Shil question it is a pity. Deok Man said that Silla has a grand ambition that waits for it to aspire & realise that dream, therefore she is recruiting talents around the nation for this dream. Mi Shil said that she does indeed have a great pool of talents under her resource of recruitment for retainer, Mi Shil asked which Deok Man has showing interest in recruiting, is it Seol Won Rang, Mi Saeng or Chil Sook. Mi Shil takes a sip of her tea when Deok Man gave Mi Shil her answer that the person she wants to recruit the talent is none other than Mi Shil herself. Deok Man asked whether will she able to use or tap to Mi Shil resources & talent as the driving force for Deok Man’s aspiration. Mi Shil look insulted, Deok Man said that her game is as good as a lost thereafter Mi Shil must prepare plan for the next step for her future. Mi Shil asked whether the next step is referring to being a driving force. Deok Man said that if it sounds like an insult to your ear over her crude & offensive in her explanation but this understanding is worth to give it a try on how to put this in words, an opportunity to nurture a successor. Now there is no hope of Mi Shil able to regain & become this nation proprietor, how about nurturing a successor to do so, how does this sound to Mi Shil. Mi Shil ponders on the word “proprietor”. Mi Shil asked whether Deok Man is implying that this Mi Shil will never able to rule this country. Deok Man boldly reply that except if she goes elsewhere to establish a country of her own, there is no alternative but however the attempts in the establishment of the new rule in this country has been simply led to a naught. It is as of now Mi Shil has no alternative or qualification whatsoever in becoming the proprietor of Silla. Mi Shil question the words proprietor & Silla, it pains her then she mentioned Jeongcheongun…Dosal Seong….Handasagun, Sokham seong, do Deok Man know where this places are located. Deok Man said that they are frontier town of the south, north & west of their borders
Mi Shil: No….it is not …..This is where this humble Mi Shil’s blood has been spilt on these lands…..all my beloved comrades that she hold dear…the Nangdos….the soldiers….& those don’t even know where their bodies are laid & don’t even have marker for their tomb & are buried in those land…This is what Silla is. This is what I & King Jinheung has explore & conquer those frontiers & Silla borders. What are you prattling there about Proprietor & Silla, you don’t know or understand nothing….the devotion that I render Sadaham in love is the same as I treasure this nation….It is because I ardent & treasure this nation that I yearn to make it my own
Deok Man is taken back that Mi Shil confess her true feeling & the suggestion of having an alliance or concertedly is an insult. Mi Shil asked Deok Man whether she would share something she treasured with someone else. Mi Shil leaves as Bi Dam could sense that the summit didn’t set out the result that it wanted. Bi Dam goes to Deok Man to ask what has happened in the talks. Deok Man looks as Mi Shil’s palanquin leave the venue for Daeya fortress. BI Dam said that he will go to Mi Shil to have a moment with her, & asked Deok Man to please give him the consent to do so
Bi Dam runs after Mi Shil palanquin & blocks its path. Bi Dam asked that he will like to have a private word with Mi Shil. Mi Shil asked what is the happening as her palanquin curtain open to reveal that it is Bi Dam. In their private moment that he asked whether the talks turn sour. Mi Shil asked Bi Dam to go & asked Deok Man for the answer. Bi Dam asked whether until now Mi Shil could with this conflict. The game is as good as a lost & there is point of no return. Mi Shil said that even thought she can win in this, she will not allow them to gain it so easily on a silver platter. Bi Dam asked why does she need to pursue this path. Mi Shil replies there is no reason not to. Bi Dam show Mi Shil King Jinheung’s imperial decree & asked how about this decree & he believe that Mi Shil knows the content that is written in the imperial decree, Mi Shil said to herself that in the end this document has found its rightful owner. Bi Dam said that this imperial decree was in the possession of Princess Deok Man & he concealed this decree. Mi Shil question why he need to conceal the decree. If Bi Dam has made this public that they has the evidence to execute her. Bi Dam asked Mi Shil to stop pretending to be strong. Mi Shil said that if this conflicts prolongs then her faction that follows her will be adjusted to be increase in her favour, but however why did Bi Dam conceal the imperial decree & asked his reason for his impulse action. Bi Dam tells that it is too cruel a matter, isn’t it. Bi Dam utter his 1st words by address Mi Shil as mother, for her to say that this is too savage for her, whenever her whole life has been it has not been correct. Bi Dam said that Mi Shil should have died back at those decades long ago. Bi Dam begs his mother Mi Shil to accept Deok Man’s terms & condition of the proposal & if she fails to do so, then he might be force to make this imperial decree public. Mi Shil approach Bi Dam & tries to touch his face & takes grass of his armour then holding Bi Dam to face her but then she just left without saying a word. Bi Dam weeps for his mother as Mi Shil stop brief then walks on. It pains Bi Dam that his mother is so stubborn
Deok Man with her war cabinet & her army tells Mi Shil has refuses her proposal. Kim Chun Chu is also don in armour. Deok Man that the situation arise & tells that this is sign & symptoms that it is a diagnose & declare as a civil war. Deok Man order Kim Yu Shin to come with strategies & war plans on the logistics & surrounding to do a siege offensive immediately as Kim Yu Shin acknowledge. Deok Man orders Al Cheon to cut off the flow of Hwang Gang then after convey that information to the adversary. Al Cheon acknowledged the order. Deok Man orders Yeom Jong that all moles infiltrated in Daeya fortress to spread the buzz of rumours to mentioned that Princess Deok Man has poisoned & contaminated the water system. Yeom Jong acknowledged then Deok Man turns to Wyol Ya, Seo Ji & Joo Bang to led garrison to do around the clock surveillance & observation of the ongoing happenings in Daeya Fortress & report back on daily basis. Wyol Ya acknowledge her order as Deok Man has been force to call & deal her cards
In Daeya fortress, Se Jong & Ha Jong is surprise that Deok Man propose an alliance. Seol Won Rang confirm it but Mi Shil has flatly refuses the offer. Ha Jong said this is but of course, they just want her to bait us out of the hole to massacre them that why they use some stratagems to lure them out. Seol Won Rang said that according to Mi Shil, Deok Man came to the table with sincerity in mind that she will not kill them. Ha Jong is lost as Mi Saeng has to thinks what is behind Deok Man’s proposal. Seol Won Rang assures them not to have worries as military support is strong. Mi Saeng has the slight hesitation & concurs that the neighbouring nobles has pledge to send their military assistance to them but Mi Saeng doesn’t look all that confident. Bo Jong comes in to report that Cho Pal Hye county that was responsible for their defensives lines General Mu Eun’s battalions has surrender to Princess Deok Man
Cho Pal Hye County is the former name for Chogye one of the myeon Hapcheon county
Bo Jong said not only that Princess Deok Man has convey the message that she has poison all water system that flow through Daeya fortress consequently they experiencing desertion from the soldiers is increasing to rise by the days. Ha Jong now feels there are sitting ducks. Mi Shil looks resign to her fate. San Tak panics whether they thought that the poison has spread to well water as well. The other soldier contemplating whether they should also run away & deserted before it is too late. The guards said that they will there are in a dilemma between the red devil & the deep blue sea where they drink the water from the fortress, they will die of poisoning & of the desert that execution may face them if they are caught. Seok Bum comes & asked what the soldier muttering about as Seok Bum show that the fortress well water is drinkable as San Tak said that they are for curtained that water has been poison. Seok Bum said do they know how much the amount of poison they need to put it to contaminated the water system to Daeya fortress, don’t they have the slightest observation on that matter. Seok Bum drinks it to show that the water is safe to drink. Sa Tak said it is because of this reason that they are experiencing a lot of desertion from their soldiers. Seok Bum dare them if they are afraid to died then they might as well desert but be pre-warn that if they should be caught for desertion & been apprehend by Seok Bum, he may show them mercy. Seok Bum reminds them that the pledge they made on they will protect Mi Shil until the end & to protect the righteous of Mi Shil’s virtue, you will stay her to protect Mi Shil & leaves. Mi Shil looks resign
Deok Man don in full military gear as she orders her military commander that Kim Yu Shin & Al Cheon to take on be responsible for the east gates as the acknowledge her orders. Lord Jujin will take on & be responsible for the north gate. Lord Jujin acknowledge her orders. Then Bi Dam & Yeom Jong takes their reconnaissance team’s men & 1,000 elite forces to control Cho Pal Hye County. Bi Dam & Yeom Jong acknowledge her orders. Deok Man then orders Wyol Ya & Seo Ji, take the Refugees militants troops & infiltrate the south gates. Daeya Fortress will be reckon be in confused, panic & disorder after the rumours of the water cut off & the poisoning of the water system, therefore in contingency of should the 1st offensive fails then they need to continues to pressure with forces to be seen strong & mighty. They initial task they must break the fighting spirit of the adversary
San Tak & some of his men are deserting. One of the soldier said if they need to escape, they must cross that ridge then we will able to outside the vicinity of Daeya fortress. The 2nd soldier tell San Tak that if they stay here any longer, they all be dead & asked them to leave at once. San Tak hesitates that he doesn’t want to leave. The 3rd soldier said that they had cut off the water & poison the water system, this already spell death. San Tak said that even that, this doesn’t feel it is right, he will go back & protect Mi Shil. The 1st soldier said there is no way that they can protect. San Tak said there is no way then the least he can retain some honour & respect & he leaves &headed back & wish them well in their desertion
Seol Won Rang queries Mi Shil to tell him what her intentions are & what has been making her perturbed. Mi Shil said the way to end this…she was the conclusion to this. Seol Won Rang is shocked. Ha Jong comes in jubilation that Sokham fortress Commander Yeo Gil Chan is bringing his whole army to support them in Daeya fortress. Mi Shil is surprise as Ha Jong repeat it is Yeo Gil Chan, he is coming to give Mi Shil military support
Yeo Gil Chan is Fort Commander of Sokham fortress. He was the 2nd man to Seol Won Rang during the Baekje campaign in Episode 9
Yeo Gil Chan preach to his men that a person who devoid of gratitude is no different from a beast, if they do not protect Mi Shil, how could they called themselves men of this Silla, are we able to declare ourselves as military fighting personnel. Yeo Gil Chan rallies his men to march ahead to Daeya fortress & protect Mi Shil with their life. His soldier cheers in agreement. Yeo Gil Chan & his men marches to the drum beat to Daeya fortress. Kim Yu Shin is inform by Wyol Ya that Yeo Gil Chan is heading his army towards Daeya fortress & Kim Yu Shin & Deok Man is surprise. Al Cheon asked what is happening in Sokham fortress now that it is left unattended, that is the border between Baekje. Kim Yu Shin tells Deok Man that Sokham fortress has over 20,000 elite soldiers. Kim Chun Chu asked Deok man to make a decision as Deok Man tells them to do reconnaissance at the surrounding area of Sokham fortress over the moments of the Baekje forces. Seol Ji said that this is not in the priority, the matter that Yeo Gil Chan will be here in 2 days. Deok Man accentuate & emphasis that this matter is in utmost priority. Deok Man has to think hard
Ha Jong tells that he always knew that Yeo Gil Chan will come to their aide. Yeo Chil Chan family for generation has been receive gratitude from Mi Shil’s benevolence. Ha Jong said this is great indeed. Mi Shil is not amused as Seol Won Rang access the situation that if should Sokham fortress’s soldier & join the combat, the result will lead to become a revolt in progress. Seol Won Rang said that there is a high possibility that Princess Deok Man will recall the border garrison. Ha Jong confidently said that before she can do so, we will have defeat & capture Seorabeol. Seol Won Rang asked what is Mi Shil going to do about this
Mi Shil said that west of Sokham fortress there is a garrison station of elite troop that is led by Yoon Chung. Foremost that they need to ascertained the movement of the Baekje army. Seol Won Rang acknowledged the order. Ha Jong asked whether this is important. Mi Shil said that it is utmost important. Deok man looking around at her camp as the traffic is busy when BI Dam comes to her to say whether this is true that Sokham fortress are making its way to Seorabeol. Deok man confirms it as Bi Dam asked what is Deok Man going to do. Bi Dam asked are they going to retreat & fall back or prepare for full offensive. Deok man there is probable as she recalls Mi Shil mentioning about Jeongcheongun…Dosal Seong….Handasagun, Sokham Seong & asked whether Deok Man knew where this places are located…this are the places that has spill this lowly & humble Mi Shil’s blood…this is what Silla is. Deok man tell Bi Dam that there is probable chance that Yeo Gil Chan might have to pull back his army. Bi Dam is surprise that why would that be.
Bo Jong comes to report that after Yeo Gil Chan departed from Sokham fortress, Baekje army led by Yoon Chung breach into Pallyangchi Ridge & set up camp. Seol Won Rang is taken aback & confirms Mi Shil worst fears. Ha Jong asked what does this incident has to do that concern them, they are now facing the brink of life & death in the offensive of Daeya fortress by Deok Man
Pallyangchi Ridge located between Namwon, Jeolla Province, and Hamyang, Gyeongsang Province.
Seol Won Rang said that first & foremost they need to do of urgency is that they must relieve Daeya fortress from being besiege & that we need to dampened the hostility of the adversary forces & then when Mi Shil interrupt that immediately & at once sent the fast horse & courier….ha Jong asked where should they need to send to. Mi Shil tells Bi Jong to send an express courier to Yeo Gil Chan & to convey her command to rapidly pull out his army & return to Sokham fortress to prevent an imminent invasion & intrusion by Baekje force. Bo Jong is surprise on Mi Shil instruction as Seol Won Rang disagrees. Ha Jong said what is his mother thinking & saying, as of now Deok Man’s army is now at their footstep & will start their offensive at them. They just need to hold up until Yeo Gil Chan’s garrison arrive to support them to gain an upper hand. Seol Won Rang queries Mi Shil’s decision. Mi Shil tells them that it stops here
Bi Dam asked how would there be a possibility that Yeo Gil Chan’s garrison will pull out. Deok Man said that the probability may be small & it might her analysis of the matter may be wrong but however it is something that may happened. Bi Dam asked why is that as Deok Man recalls Mi Shil telling her “the devotion that I render Sadaham in love is the same as I treasure this nation….that this is Silla…. This is what I & King Jinheung has explore & conquer those frontiers & Silla borders
Deok Man said to Bi Dam that for a short & brief moment has witness the authority of Mi Shil’s kingship. The rightful & legitimate kingship. Ha Jong question his mother that what needs to stop as of now & pester her mother to answer. Mi Shil answer him that everything needs to halt & cease. Bo Jong calls to his mother as Mi Shil leaves as Ha Jong goes to look for some understanding to this situation on what his mother has said on what she wants to stop
Yeon Gil Chan receive Mi Shil courier & he asked that this is really from Mi Shil & it is her orders, pull out immediately to return to Sokham fortress to engage a defensive with Baekje. Courier conform that this is Mi Shil has command & she also mentioned that this is her last order to him. Yeo Gil Chan calls Mi Shil by name as he will have to obey.
Mi Shil is her full keeper of the seal regalia, taken comfort to sit on her official appurtenance chair & looks regal. When she left the palace, she must have brought a lot furniture & fittings. Seol Won Rang approaches her & question why Mi Shil order Yeo Gil Chan to pull back his garrison. Mi Shil said that if she has cause the border to be breach under her watch, then this Mi Shil would have completely lost all to Deok Man. Seol Won Rang asked therefore as Mi Shil continues now she wants to death ends all troubles. Mi Shil asked Seol Won Rang not too heavy hearted on the matter
Mi Shil said that the days during their time in Hwa Rang, there is an ode in the song & asked if Seol Won Rang recalls
Seol Won Rang: When battle follow assume to war
Mi Shil: When When can’t battle follow the option to defend…When can’t defend follow option to retreat
Seol Won Rang when retreat is not an option, but only in surrender
Mi Shil: & should even surrender prove impossible option….but on that day only death is the sufficient as match set
Mi Shil said that today calls for that. Mi Shil said that she has favour to ask of Seol Won Rang. Seol Won Rang said that she can’t do that for her, he will come with her. Mi Shil said that from no onwards whatever her commands, her saying, her action & her promises, all of which will be my last, please asked everybody to adhere to what she say, the people who follows her, should asked them to carry on surviving & to lead them properly. Seol Won Rang asked why that she is glancing back & can’t let them go with worries, why she has grown so fragile & weak over the matter. Mi Shil said on the contrary it is not weakness but it is establishment of various strategies & scheme of hers, this is fulfilling the last stage of her ploy & scheme that she is expediting. Mi Shil hands Seol Won Rang the letter as he approaches her to accept it from Mi Shil & tells as towards Seol Won Rang she is indeed apologetic
Kim Yu Shin is inform that Yeo Gil Chan has pull back his garrison & returns to Sokham fortress. Al Cheon said that it must be to engage defensive on Yoon Chung’s army intrusion. Wyol Ya asked what is happening, why did they pull back their garrison when they are just a few distance away from Daeya fortress. Kim Chun Chu asked whether this is another of their cunning deception that they are devising. Deok Man assures that this is definitely not a deception. Deok Man as she sees it, that Mi Shil has…..Bi Dam could guess what has happens leaves the camp as his action confirm without a doubt to Deok Man that Bi Dam does indeed have connection with Mi Shil
Mi Shil tells Seol Won Rang that those nobles who are loyal to her, asked them to return to their places, also Cho Pal Hye county where Chil Sook is holding asked him to retreat at once. Seol Won Rang acknowledged her instruction. By this time Mi Shil has difficulties in her speech & finally those & have instructed to you & everything prepare for her. Bi Dam at the entrance of Daeya fortress & hesitates when suddenly the white flag is raise at Daeya fortress. Meanwhile at Cho Pal Hye, courier sends a message to Chil Sook as he open & reads it & pass it to Seok Bum. Chil Sook asked the courier whether this was actually from MI Shil. The courier said that he personally took this from Mi Shil. Seok Bum said that they need to retreat & fall back. Seok Bum asked what is going on
Cho Pal Hye county is the present Chogye in Hapcheon county
Chil Sook smiles that Mi Shil is ending this once & for all (call it quits). Seok Bum question how can this be the end. Kim Chun Chu asked Deok Man if Yeo Gil Chan honestly pull back his garrison as a fact, wouldn’t it be wise that they return to what was originally plan. Al Cheon concurs that they have no time to lose on the matter & make haste. Wyol Ya comes in to report to Deok Man that the situation in Daeya fortress is….Deok man can sense something amiss. Deok Man & her army arrives at Daeya fortress. I like Deok Man military regalia that she don the armours in the masculine manner. Deok Man sees Daeya fortress flags up by white flag in their posts, looks like a funeral home. Gates open & Seol Won Rang strip of his armours & in his prisoner whites. Deok Man approach Seol Won Rang on horseback alone to meet him as he walks out then kneels before Deok Man in submission as the rest of the soldier follows to kneel. Seol Won Rang said that this unconditional surrender that he now kneels before Deok Man. Seol Won Rang said that they have disarm all weapons. Deok man asked where is Mi Shil’s sojourn now. Seol Won Rang said that Mi shil is awaiting Deok Man presence
Bi Dam comes running & totter in & sees that Mi Shil has taken many valves of poison as he stoop to hold one of the valve & asked that she wanted this & shout to his mother why. Mi Shil asked not to raise his voice too loudly. Mi Shil tells Bi Dam that it is to say that she has more or less one gak of time left in this world
One gak or in Chinese “Ke” is 15 mins. Historically this had been defined as 1/96, 1/100, 1/108, or 1/120 of a day. The value here is the modern conventional value (1/96 day). I will use Chinese term which is easier. Ancient Asian reads time with these measurement units. A day is made out of 12 Shi Chen (literally the time of hour & named after the Chinese zodiac) each Shi Chen is 2 hours period. Each Shi Chen has 8 “Ke” or (in Korean gak) & it is 4 “Ke” to one hour, so 1 “Ke” is 15 mins
Bi Dam asked Mi Shil
Bi Dam: Should I address you once as Mother, then? Do you wish to hear it?
Mi Shil laughs at his remark
Bi Dam: Or is it that you have abandoned me, that you are so regretfully, so you want to say sorry?…Or the contrary that you are ridden with guilt that you have to admits that you actually love him dearly & you want to confess that she has always love him from her heart
Mi Shil tells that as for this Mi Shil, it is not in her vocabulary therefore she will never utter those words. Mi Shil tell Bi Dam that he doesn’t need to address her as mother & she was never sorry & also love
Mi Shil: Love? What do you think it is? Love that is so called the implication is without giving effort in propriety & contrition in order to able to own it, that this is what love is. If you wish to love Deok Man, & then this you must do….devotion…righteousness…even Silla. None of the above can be shared with someone…no matter who it is…Kim Yu Shin….Kim Chun Chu…the fact whoever it is….Understand?
Seol Won Rang lead Deok Man to see Mi Shil. Bi Dam tells Mi Shil that his devotion, he will handle this himself. Mi Shil said she is concern for Bi Dam that why she has convey this to him. Mi Shil said that she has got the heart of people then after aspire to own this nation but as for Bi Dam, got the country buy yet aspire to own a person. To make a person as your aspiration is indeed risky & inevitable. Deok man is initially a person who is incarnate into becoming this nation. Bi Dam said that he wants to create Deok man to be that person. The ideals that is not feasible will only ends aspiration to withered. The poison is taking effect as Mi Shil slides, BI Dam tries to help but Mi Shil stops him & asked whether Deok Man is as she was before
Seol Won Rang said this is where Mi Shil is sojourn as Deok Man goes in & asked Kim Yu Shin & Al Cheon remain at the corridors to wait for her. Deok Man enters & runs it to see Mi Shil on the last strand of life. Bi Dam is weeping & looks at Mi Shil. Deok Man approached Mi Shil
Deok Man: Se Ju…..Mi Shil
Mi Shil holding to the arms of the chairs
Deok Man (to herself): Mi Shil….without you….wouldn’t have permitted me to have made anything out of myself…Mi Shil….Mi Shil’s era….Farewell
Deok Man bow in respect to Mi Shil & Mi Shil relax her grip on the arm
Deok Man weeps for her adamant adversary.
