BOTH: Dong Yi. Father, Dongju.. – Come ONN..!
– Shoes! Where’s my shoes? We’ll miss her cause of your shoes! What, I should go barefoot? Yungdal, I can’t believe..!
Our Dong Yi’s leaving? Dunno, dunno! But I’m going.
Come when you can. Yungdal, wait! Easy! No scratches.. I swear, watch it, ea-ea-easy..! It’s not to late, go talk to her. Talk? Who? Me? To Dong Yi? – My lady.
– When has THAT ever worked? Why’s she doing this?
Leaving her son, the palace.. That’s what I’m saying!
She could have the sweet life here. Just talk to her again. Like I’d succeed where the King failed? My lady..! The Queen, my lady. What? Consort Choi? Your Highness. Your Highness. Think this through. It’s not easy living outside the palace.
How will you stand it? Didn’t you know I was born a peasant
and grew up in the ghetto? Consort. Ihyun Palace is more than I need,
don’t worry. I’ll call on you frequently, of course. Is this for me? Me and Yuning? – If it is–
– No, not at all. It’s long been a dream of mine
to leave the palace. What? No, I won’t have it. I won’t stand for it. My lord.. I first came to the palace to live. After losing my father and brother,
it was the only safe place for me. This is where I met you. Where you filled my heart and gave me a son
more precious than life. So precious that you’d abandon him?
And me? This is for me, for my life. I came here to prove my father
and brother were innocent. I want to help those who suffer,
just as my father and brother did. Yuning will know I’m working
for the downtrodden. Please try to understand.. Like my father and brother before me,
I’ll dedicate my life to helping the helpless. This way, when Yuning is King,
he’ll never forget them. There’s nothing I could say to that. Dong Yi, so cold, so cruel. I won’t have it, I need my mom with me. I won’t be far, you can visit me
anytime you like. And I’ll visit you now and then. Don’t lie. Just now you said the Queen’s my ‘real mom.’ You’re abandoning me, plain and simple. No, Geum, I’m not. I’m your mother
and always will be. You know how very,
very much you mean to me? – Mom.
– Now, enough tears. Remember our promise. You’ll serve the Queen
with your whole heart. She comes first now. Your Grace. Crown Prince. Don’t worry about Yuning,
I’ll look after him. Prince. He’s my brother. I won’t let anything happen to him. I never told you, but I’m grateful.
I’ll never forget what you’ve done. Thank you, Prince. Truly.
