Legend Episode 6, recap

The series is going to be a tearjerker, isn’t it? I can just see a dark patch looming up ahead of me…

Episode 6

Gak Dan the guard is impressed with the prince’s prowess, and tells him that his friends are imprisoned in the Yon dungeon.

Meanwhile, Kiha is taken to the disciplining chamber, where the Oracle interrogates her about her frequent habit of sneaking out and what she does during that time. She thinks Kiha is sleeping with Damduk, but in fact, what Kiha told her – visiting the people who raised her – is true.

So the high priestess has her punished, with rather severe measures too. (It was either that she was sleeping with Damduk or that she was a spy. Or both? No one thought of that?)

Yon’s lackey comes to ask for her, but is initially rebuffed.

Damduk rides to the Yon’s house. Hyungo tries but fails to use his special camouflage tool. So he and his people are stuck outside.

Damduk offers to give up his position as crown prince. He admits that all the evidence points to Ho Gae being the rightful king. He asks for a little time from Yon, that his father live out his natural life span before taking over.

At this point, Kiha arrives at the Yon household. (And her bodyguards, or a group of them, follow Hyungo and his friend.) Damduk just misses seeing her.

Hwacheon chief dude doesn’t like the fact that Damduk is very okay with the idea of giving up his spot. He wants Kiha to ensnare Ho Gae, and he himself will stir up tons of trouble within the kingdom.

As befits her personality, Sujini is playing with the men on the team. They are happy and the atmosphere is not at all in-jail-like.

At Yon’s, a meeting between Kiha and Ho Gae is staged. Does the phoenix heart glow? Nope.

(I think Damduk wants to give up the throne to live with Kiha. Oh, you poor deluded boy. He doesn’t want the throne nor the power games that come with it. ‘Tis a simple life for our Damduk.)

Oh, he does want to run off somewhere with Kiha. Damduk has no sense of purpose, because he still doesn’t see himself as proper king material.

As she’s performing the ceremony of divination, Kiha thinks back to childhood times with Damduk, and the betrayal that she is about to commit, by trying to seduce his opponent.

Ho Gae is just mesmerized by her dancing.

The phoenix heart is burning terribly bright now. Sujini is having a nightmare about being set on fire in general and the birth of the black phoenix in particular. (I think it’s her and not Kiha that’s activating the symbol. Either that or the thought of Damduk is enough to light up the heart.)

In the morning, Kiha does more damage to Ho Gae’s vulnerable heart. (The boy has the poorest luck in the world about girls. Just like she has really bad luck with the boys, I suppose.)

In the cabinet meeting, the nobles who support Ho Gae give the king a hard time about his son. The Julno chief is angry at the imprisonment of his sons and being barred from entering the palace. He stays in front of the palace.

(Damduk and Ho Gae are 17. Don’t look it, but they are.)

The nobles are blockading the king into making Ho Gae the crown prince.

The high priestess of the Oracle announces to the assembled nobles that Damduk was in fact the one who was born under the star. Damduk is scheduled to have a coronation at noon that day. (His father is happy at having thwarted the Yon family.)

Hyungo is shocked at being deceived for so long about the Jooshin king. He has no choice but to go back to his village and check all the records again.

Ho Gae confronts his father with his belief in this ‘nonsense’. His father’s assertion that he saw the legend in action, plus barbs about his submission to Damduk’s authority, convince Ho Gae to rebel against the present king.

The priestess, meanwhile, is worried. The oracle decreed that the identity of the Jooshin king should have remained a secret until he himself realized who he was, but the king doesn’t want to wait. The king is not worried about anything, as he places his faith in fate.

In the catacombs, Damduk converses with the spirits of his ancestors that he believes are there. He reminisces about the past with Ho Gae. He believes that Ho Gae will be a good king – and doesn’t realize that Ho Gae’s been completely changed by his mother’s death.

Meanwhile, the Julno chief airs his grievances with the king. He counters by offering his son to marry the Julno chief’s daughter. The chief coughs in shock. He criticises the king’s way of ruling the kingdom, by being too soft, but does acquiesce, in the end.

On the way to Hwacheon, Lord Yon tells his son about the phoenix pendant. Ho Gae meets Kiha there – he is happy. Lord Yon demands support from the Hwacheon elder in Ho Gae’s bid for the throne.

(Oh guys, this is excellent. Two teams who each believe in their own version of the story. In doing this, though, Kiha will most likely lose control over the real Jooshin king, Damduk.)

The Hwacheon elder announces that he is filled with joy at the appearance of the real king – um. He sounds like he is filled with joy, yup. His plan is to kidnap all the elder sons of the provincial chiefs and pin the blame on Damduk.

The elder threatens her with Kajin’s history to warn her about losing her heart to someone, and that if she continues to act like she cares about Damduk, he will be eliminated. Meanwhile, she recovers a little bit of her memory.

Lord Yon tells the provincial leaders that their sons have been kidnapped by the king. To prove Ho Gae’s legitimacy as the one true king, he brings in Kiha, wearing the phoenix symbol. She summons the power of the symbol.

The Guh Mool watchers outside are alerted to the presence of the phoenix, but they think it’s Sujini acting up.

Kiha kneels to Ho Gae, complete in her role as puppet.


Well, things are getting epic now, aren’t they?

    Wow, you are one productive person.

    “(Damduk and Ho Gae are 17. Don’t look it, but they are.)”
    Really? I did not pay attention when they said that…For me they were 25 or something…

    It’s getting better each episode… Gna.

    Hey there just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its
    a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on
    a variety of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.

    I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
