The second character of this series, the king who fell for ‘entertainer Jang Noksu’!
Let’s delve into the analysis of “King Yeonsan”! 🙂
Noksu’s skilful arts captivates ‘King Yeonsan’
Rumours of Noksu spread all over Hanyang and reached the king. Upon hearing the news of this famous woman, ‘King Yeonsan’ disguises himself by wearing a sapsal dog mask and sets off to Gaheungcheong!
At Gaheungcheong, Noksu’s display of her beautiful arts captivates King Yeonsan!!
Thereafter, King Yeonsan appoints Jang Noksu as his concubine.
‘King Yeonsan’ carries a sad and painful memory of his mother.
Jang Noksu came to know about the involvement of the royal subjects during the deposition of the Queen Mother.
The infuriation arising from this causes King Yeonsan to wield his sword ruthlessly.
King Yeonsan’s ruthless wielding of his sword reveals the tyranny of the king.
This angers the royal subjects and they start to conspire against the king, putting ‘King Yeonsan’ and ‘Jang Noksu’ in danger.
‘King Yeonsan’ was suffering every day from the painful loss of his mother and the royal subjects’ pressure put on him as the king.
Eventually, ‘King Yeonsan’ turns into a violent and ruthless king.
His tyranny causes the royal subjects and the people to abandon him and he becomes a tragic character.
Yet, the one who stands by and protects him, ‘Jang Noksu’!!
The tyrant ‘King Yeonsan’ becomes a vulnerable, young man in front of her.
Together with ‘Jang Noksu’ who takes cares of his pain, the both of them depart to a world free from suffering and pain.
‘King Yeonsan’ reminisces the past together with ‘Jang Noksu’ who stays by his side till the end.
The sapsal dog mask he wore when he first met ’Jang Noksu’!
Just like the first time, ‘King Yeonsan’ becomes a sapsal dog of ‘Jang Noksu’ for the last time and the both of them reaffirm their love for each other.
Another character with his own unique charm, the ill-fated character who tries to forget his traumatic past through the woman known as ‘Jang Noksu’, ‘King Yeonsan’!!
