My beloved K-Drama drunkards, let’s take a look at Ep 7-8 based on my two favorite scenes of cute water delivery boy, Commoner Lee Sun.
First, let’s lay down the facts.
1. Commoner Lee Sun has seen the Crown Prince’s face.
2. The Crown Prince and the pretty faced delivery boy share the same name, Lee Sun.
3. Pyunsoo-hwe mistook Commoner Lee Sun as the Crown Prince.
4. Commoner Lee Sun is aware that the Crown Prince is not the person behind the mask during Deputy Magistrate Han’s execution.
- The Pact Of The Lee Suns
Deputy Magistrate Han’s execution painted a dark cloud above the Crown Prince’s head. His guilt persecuted him and left him unarguably devastated.
But just when he’s about to abandon all hope, Commoner Lee Sun offered his help.
Commoner Lee Sun’s proposal to be the Crown Prince’s substitute got me excited. The Pyunsoo-hwe is a group of folks who are hard to fool, and it will be fun to see how the Pauper will step up to this challenge.
His intelligence will undoubtedly help him, as well as his learnings from Master Woo Bo. But when put to test, particularly relating to emotions, will he succeed or will he get unmasked by the cunning Master Dae-mok?
- L, The Actor
Coming in to the drama, I was worried about L’s acting. Having scenes with Yoo Seung-ho and Kim So-hyun, who are both outstanding young actors, surely did not help as well, and it was hard not to compare him with the two.
Despite that, I did not lose hope for oppa since his performance in Ha Ji-won’s The Time We Were Not In Love is pretty decent and his take on Shut Up Flower Boyband is adorable.
Ruler: Master of the Mask Ep 7 is L’s answer to those who doubted and critized him. The torture scene displayed that L is serious when it comes to acting and is on his way to successfully transition from Infinite L to L, the actor.
The emotion that L showed in the scene is no less than impressive. He no longer relies on his shouting to depict the feeling he wants to convey to the viewers.
L’s attack on the scene where Commoner Lee Sun admitted that starvation led him to offer his help to the prince is laudable. You can now see the variety of emotions playing in L’s eyes.
Can L fool you as the Crown Prince?
Join me on the next episode to find out what will happen to Commoner Lee Sun and the Crown Prince as they exchange lives.
