Hwarang Episode 14 might leave a cliffhanger to audiences but some things may have been clearer and given some answers. Park Seo Joon’s character has been fully developed and focused on the last episodes and speculated to bloom more in upcoming Episode 15 of Hwarang.
To recall, Sun Woo (Park Seo Joon) claimed he is the “King” of Silla amidst the provocation of Baekje Crown Prince (Kim Min Joon) just before the crown prince attempted to behead some Silla farmers and Ah Ro (Go Ara).
It has been noted on the facial reactions of people surrounding Sun Woo that they were surprised, except for Soo Ho (Choi Min Ho), who really think he is the true faceless king of Silla. Meanwhile, King Jinheung/ Ji Dwi (Park Hyung Sik) seemed to let his friend claim his throne for now so long as Ah Ro is safe.
In the Episode 15 preview, the Baekje’s crown prince and Sun Woo are shown to be negotiating on what to do in order for Sun Woo to save Silla people. Shortly after, one scene is shown that they were freed by the crown prince may be after their negotiation or a sword fight. The Baekje’s crown prince also announced that they will fix the situation by sword fight.
However, seemed like some soldiers attacked the group by shooting an arrow to a prisoner which has shocked everyone.
Fans may have plenty of questions but for now some theories have come wild and speculations arise since Park Seo Joon’s Sun Woo has revealed to be a hidden prince.
In the last episode, the Queen Regent is believed to have a brother, in the persona of Lord Kim Hwi Kyung (Song Yeong Kyu).
Many fans have argued that since Queen Ji So illegally (somehow) grabbed the throne, Park Seo Joon’s character might be just a valid candidate as the king of Silla. Moreover, Master Hwi Kyung released some cryptic message addressed to Lord Kim Wi Hwa (Sung Dong Il) or he is just dropping some hints that another candidate for the highest throne in Silla is just around (referring to Sun Woo.)
Master Hwi Kyung also challenged Queen Ji Soo to announce Sun Woo as the king whenever he returns safe from Baekje.
Will Sun Woo become the King? What happens to Ji Dwi now?
Despite all of these theories, fans will need to wait until Hwarang Episode 15 airs on Monday, February 6 on KBS2. Perhaps one of the many questions will be addressed, right?
