Today, we’ll be discussing Episode 6 of Mr. Queen, the hit K Drama on Netflix starring Shin Hye-sun as Kim So-yong, Kim Jung-hyun as King Cheojong, Seol In-ah as Jo Hwa-jin, Na In-woo as Kim Byeong-in, and Choi Jin-hyuk as Jang Bong-hwan.
The songs we featured during the recap: No Touch by Howl and Venus by Moon Jong-up.
How this episode was aptly named Between Understanding and Misunderstanding; there are so many misunderstandings between nearly everyone in the palace, but especially between the King and the Queen.
That things are very complicated for Jang Bong-hwan since jumping into the lake clearly won’t bring him back to modern day Korea.
When the King saved the Queen from the lake, something changed. The King now wants the Queen to live and he wants to try to understand her.
The King and Queen agree to do No Touch but they have very different understandings of what No Touch means.
The Jo family tries to depose the Queen but the King shows a different side of his character when he strongly defends the Queen and throws out the petition.
The palace intrigue continues. Lord Kim Jwa-geun has created a double agent of one of the court ladies. Oh-wol has been stabbed by the eunuch with a scar on his face, the same eunuch who tortured Oh-wol. The Dowager Queen summons her shaman to perform a ritual against the Queen. Kim Byeong-in brings together representatives from the Jo and Kim families and makes a deal with them.
The queen became an entrepreneur with the creation of her food delivery service. In the process, she used the food palanquin delivery men to spread rumors in the palace, which serve to rehabilitate the Queen’s reputation.
The education, background and career of the beautiful Seol In-ah.
