K-Drama Reaction: Ruler: Master of the Mask | Episodes 33-34

“Someday, you will find out that there is far more happiness in another’s happiness than in your own.”

~ Le Père Goriot (1835), Honoré de Balzac

At this point in the drama, I’ve run out of words to express how far and great Hwa-gun have traveled for the crown prince. I’ve run out of things to describe how big her sacrifices were. So, I would like to dedicate this Ruler: Master of the Mask Ep 33-34 reaction to the fearless lady and my low-key bias, Hwa-Gun.

The Beautiful Tragedy

I didn’t think it would end up like this. I had hoped for Hwa-gun to live on with her father or continue being a merchant while loving Crown Prince Lee Sun from afar. In a perfect world, she would have ended up with Gon. But I guess to tear our hearts apart, PDnim decided to make her into a beautiful tragedy.

Hwa-gun was happy as she meets her end in the hands of her own grandfather. Her quaint smile suggested that she has accepted the fate of sacrificing her own life for the one she loves. And she took her last breath happily remembering the first time she met Crown Prince Lee Sun.

No. I’m not crying. These are just water rolling out of my eyes.

The Protector’s Tearful Vow

Gon shedding tears is the last thing I need to see right now. And him hesitating to hold the hand of his late master made me into a total emotional wreck.

The only thing that made me stop from ugly crying in this scene is Gon vowing to obey Hwa-gun’s command to protect the crown prince until his death. His highness has gained a powerful protector while Master Dae-mok has created a frightening foe.

The Awakening

Hwa-gun’s death has awaken the courage and wrath of her father against Master Dae-mok. I’m almost 100% sure that he will play a big role in eliminating Pyunsoo-hwe and in curbing the old man’s power.

I want to take my hat off to actor Kim Byung-chul for his heart-wrenching portrayal of a father who lost his most precious daughter. Kim Byung-chul shed the weakling image of his character in this episode and is now ready to stand up and wage war against Master Dae-mok.

Monster?

A lot of us will agree that Master Dae-mok is no less than a monster after killing his own granddaughter, but is it only me who saw a glint of loneliness flickered in his eyes after  his son left him?

Reunited With a Kiss

Yep, the title says it all. After surviving Master Dae-mok’s cunningness with the poppy wine and saving the little girls working in the field, Crown Prince Lee Sun is now reunited with Ga-eun. And there’s no better greeting you can make for your “I thought he’s dead but he’s freaking alive and devilishly handsome” loved one than a kiss.

Omona Moments

Okaaay. Commoner Lee Sun has a special place reserved in K-Drama hell. He has gone all the way evil in this episode. Aside from wanting to take the throne, he even chose to make Ga-eun as his queen.

But worry not my fellow noonas, Crown Prince Lee Sun has decided to reclaim what is rightfully his.

Don’t mind this, it’s just me thirsting over Chung-woon and Gon.

And just me again envying Crown Prince Lee Sun for having these two awesome and freaking hot bodyguards protect him.
