What an interesting scene!
As a so-called "aristocrat", you are used to crossing walls.
How did you come to jump over this wall?
Were you looking for a place to have your tryst?
William is not a bad person!
Please do not take him away! I'll explain everything.
What were you planning after helping a westerner to hide?!
I'll punish all of you.
You'll not get away with this easily this time, so be firmly prepared!
I have something to tell you.
[A royal medallion: A medallion issued by king to a secret inspector to carry out a special mission]
Is the secretary gone?
Were you the one who hid him?
I thought he might storm into the guest room.
It's getting late. You should be going home now.
I committed indelible discourtesy because I did not recognize your status.
I came here with an important mission, so I couldn't reveal my identity easily.
I thought you were the suspect as well, so we are even.
Did you see me at that time, then?
Your actions were suspicious, so I suspected you
if you had any connection with the thieves by any chance.
Today, I found out the person who ordered the lost horseshoe was the high priest, so I went there.
And then, I saw you sneaking in...
Because of that, we now know we have the same goal. It's good that it happened.
What do you plan to do with the westerner?
If we worry about the westerner now,
it will be difficult for us to concentrate on our current matter, so pretend not to know of it.
When I return to Hanyang, I'll take him with me.
I will do as you say.
However, you and the chief diver's daughter...
Do not misunderstand. There's nothing between us.
The only reason I said I was in a relationship with her was a temporary solution to keep my identity a secret.
It was not because I had any feelings for her.
Actually, I was asking whether the chief diver's daughter knows aoubt your true identity or not.
Oh, is that so...?
Stop there for a moment!
Where are you coming from with the scholar this late at night?
Why is your face gloomy?
Did she ever have a happy face before?
I think we should go in.
Let's go. Let's go.
Make sure to talk it through...
I did what you told me to do,
but how come the secretary listened to you and didn't arrest William?
Were you with him until now?
What were you two talking about?!
Did William go home safely?
Did the high priest say something?
Why do you want to know about that?
Are you really an exile?
Are there any fake exiles?
What a weird thing to say!
Stop changing the subject and tell me the truth!
Why did you really come to Tamna?
You're not really an exile, are you?!
Aren't you the one who will take care of his business in Tamna and leave right away?
It's not like that.
Is that the truth?
Yes, then, just go in and get some sleep.
Don't tell anyone about what happened today.
If you do, the first person to be in danger will be William.
Watch what you say.
Who in the world shuts somebody's mouth with his mouth?
Do you think I did it because I wanted to?
It was a temporary solution to prevent you from causing a problem.
Government Office in Jeju Daejung Hyun
How dare you go into the high priest's house without permission!
Because it was an urgent matter, I did not have time to get his permission.
Going into the high priest's house even without your superior's permission...
I can't just ignore it.
You stop executing your duty now and behave yourself at home!
I don't want to hear it!
How dare you ignore dignity of your superior!
Are you going somewhere?
Why are you following me around?
Last night, I thoroughly thought about it,
There is something strange.
Can't you just tell me the truth?
Didn't I tell you
that I have nothing else to tell you?
Last time I told you everything truthfully!
So, how can you do this to me?
Exile! You shouldn't do this!
Do you think I don't know about the value of china in the western world?
They are the best chinas from Chosun!
You would know better about the true value of these.
Let's do business.
As you wanted, we'll pay you with silver.
Your merchant group will never suffer a loss either.
As soon as you put these items on the market, you'll reap your profits.
If you became an enemy of Fujida merchant group,
it could affect our business with other Japanese merchants.
If we feared danger, we would not have made it this far.
In business, the bigger the danger, the bigger the profits.
"In the business world, you may need to hold hands with your enemy if necessary."
Isn't this what you taught me?
There are rumors that East India Company is trying to do business with other merchant groups.
What was that?
There's talk that you are trying to do business with other merchant groups in Chosun.
Is that true?
If you abandon us and work with another,
your desire of making Jeju a leased territory will not happen.
We only want to do business with Seorin merchant group promptly.
The rumors about us contacting other merchant groups are absolutely not true.
If you betray our merchant group,
you should remember that East India Company will never be able to set a foot in Chosun.
We wouldn't lose anything by doing business with two different sources.
Who do you think is trying to contact East India Company?
Leave to Jeju quickly.
It must be the high priest in Jeju.
Also, you should keep an eye on that royal secret inspector, Park Gyu.
I'll keep that in mind.
Now, if we can just get weapons from East India Company,
reconstructing Tamna as a country will be a matter of time.
I'm already hopeful of the new independent Tamna.
William, this is very well-made!
You're really talented, aren't you?
Since the rock is porous, it's not difficult to make it.
What a nice fragrance!
Hello, Beo Jin?
What is that?
It's a tea people drink in England.
Do people from your country drink teas, too?
Maybe because it's a foreign tea,
the smell is very unique.
In a little while, I'll give you a cup of it, too.
How about giving it out to the villagers?
Then, could William go outside?
Just for today, it's okay to get around the village freely.
There, this is the last tribute from our village this year.
Let's cheer up and finish this up quickly.
We'll have to do it all again next year.
What's there to get excited about?!?
At least, we'll be relieved even for a while, right?
You never quit talking about working.
I've prepared some food for you all who worked hard today.
I guess only the police have to carry these to the government office.
I envy you! We have to load these and deliver them to Jeju Provincial Office.
You helped us a lot today.
Why don't you join us?
Beo Jin, what is all this?
- This is coffee. - Coffee...?
It's a tea we drink in England. It's good for health, so, everyone, try it.
Here you go.
What does it taste like?
It's really bitter,
so it must be some kind of medicine!
Medicine? Well than give me some, too!
This is all from the westerner!
Of course, it is!
Everybody! Come quickly! Free food here!
I want to thank everybody.
Because of your help, it was easier this year.
It's unfortunate that we can't keep these goods for Tamna.
If we could only use them for the benefit of our people, we would have a better life.
When we didn't belong to the mainland, life here was more affluent.
If Tamna's remained as Tamna's, then we would be better off even now.
If it weren't for the tribute, we wouldn't have to live such a difficult life.
An overly large amount of tribute can be a problem, but Tamna is obviously a territory of Chosun.
What protects Tamna from invasions from Japan is the power of Chosun after all.
If the tributes hadn't been stolen so often, the villagers' lives wouldn't have been so difficult.
Your way of thinking is different since you are a scholar from onshore.
Did you get everything ready?
Jeju High Priest's secret base
- How many cups did I drink? - This really does give me energy!
It's a medicine! Medicine!
Have as much as you want!
You have a cup of coffee, too!
William said it's a really good tea.
The fragrance is not bad.
If it's too bitter for you, put some honey in it.
I'd like the biggest cup, with lots of honey please.
Okay. The biggest one.
If you drink too much, you might not be able to sleep at night.
You said it's good for healthy, so I'll drink a lot.
Awww, so bitter!
This, did you make it?
This was done with much skill to turn a scary bear into a lovable creature like a puppy.
What a masterpiece! Your skill is amazing!
I would like to welcome you to the village as a master artisan!
Yours are pretty great, too.
Is this what they call, "coffee"?
Mom, you drink some, too!
I'm fine, but save some for Scholar Park.
The exile. We need to call him his proper name from now on.
Mom, why are you acting like this these days?
Take good care of him.
I don't understand why we're doing this at all.
Let's just forget it and do what they order us.
We're here Jeju Provincial Office to take over the tributes.
Why did you come all the way over here though? You told us to bring these all the way to the office.
Because of the recent thievery, we were sent here to secure the goods.
Well, I guess...
Listen up! We will hand over the goods hereand return to our office.
Thank you all for your work!
Let's go back quickly!
Since they have to counterchange the tributes and this will be the last tributes of the year, they won't stay still.
If I am correct, this will be the perfect opportunity to find their hideout.
But, I'm probated now, so I won't be able to investigate them. How about revealing your identity to the director?
Now is not the time, so just follow my orders.
What are they doing here?
Did you do something wrong? Why are you so surprised like this?
Shhhh... This does not concern you, go back home immediately.
I just followed you because my mom told me to. Do you think I came here because I like you?
It's dangerous, so go back to the village now!
Please go back to the village.
I don't understand any of this.
Why are you wandering around the village poking into things like a mole?
Who are you really?
Beo Jin, listen to me carefully.
Whatever happens from now, you shouldn't leave Sanbang village.
And also, you shouldn't go to the high priest's house.
I.... I don't want anything bad happen to you.
Keep that in mind.
I don't know what's going on, but I'm going to go see William.
Exile, you should be careful, too.
What is that smoke up there?
Maybe a hunter set out the fire.
Go look into it.
Are you okay?
The tributes, of course, and the high priest and his group went into that place.
How could there be a place like that in this remote mountain?
In the old days, that place used to be a blacksmith village.
I heard all the blacksmiths in the village were taken to Japan by Japanese and the village was closed down.
They've been doing such things in a place like that.
A blacksmith village?
I'm surprised how the high priest could recruit that many private soldiers.
I'm going to stay here and watch more closely. You return to the village
and get things ready.
We have plenty of goods now.
If that Japanese sailor can help us to do business with that East India Company,
everything will go well.
Check the goods and send some abalones to the village.
Yes, I'll do that.
What happened to the man you sent to where the smoke was?!
Go there yourself now!
He couldn't have gone far. Search thoroughly!
Park Gyu... What is he to you?
What kind of question is that?!
He's just an exile living in at storage room at my house.
And he's so unpleasant.
I wish I could live in your storage room, too.
You're living in the best house in our village, so what are you talking about?
But... You're not there.
Don't you feel embarassed not even a little bit when saying things like that?
Why? That's how I feel.
Since you came out to the village today, l'll show you some interesting things.
What do you think?
Isn't this fascinating?
We have something similar in England.
We use water like this, too.
Even though people may look different, the way they think must be similar.
William, come look inside to see if it's similar inside, too.
What do you know about Tamna?
Why do you shorten your life by thrusting yourself forward?
You must know stealing tributes is not just simple thievery.
You are not only damaging the property of Chosun,
but you have also deceived the people of Tamna who followed and trusted you!
You will never be forgiven.
Are you trying to make a *** of the business?!
If you kill that westerner, the business contract with them will be void.
But, that westerner and Beo Jin saw everything.
Until the Japanese sailor comes back, they are of use.
Until then, we have to keep them alive.
What are you waiting for?
Lock them up together.
The secretary. The secretary is dead!
The secretary is dead!!!!
How could this happen?!
Don't get yourself into trouble by intervening.
Let's get going!
He's still breathing.
Hurry and get out of here.
Arrest hemorrhage and show his wound to a doctor.
Then, you'll be able to save him.
Really? Is he still alive?
And one more thing. There's something you two have to promise me.
Go make a fuss that the secretary is dead.
You just said he is alive. Why do you tell us to spread a rumor that he is dead?
I know you guys stole the tributes by counterchanging.
How did you...
The secretary ordered us to...
You'll soon find out all the details.
For now, just do as I say.
What are you waiting for? There is no time to lose!
He must be really dead!
Did you see the spilt blood at the bottom?
Who could have done such a horrible thing?!
The secretary did all the work that incur enmity.
There's must be a lot of people who have grudge against him.
Were you with Beo Jin?
She didn't return yet?
I told her to stay with you all the time.
Is she still with that blue-eyed boy?
William, are you okay?
Please let us go.
I swear I won't tell anyone. Really!
You're a good person.
That's what I think. Why did you do something like this?
You'll thank us when a new world begins for Tamna.
If you're still alive until then.
Oppa, oppa (older male friend/brother)!
William, are you okay?
Let go of me! I told you I have to see the director!
What's all this noise about?
I came here because I have something to tell you.
Geez. Seeing you running wild again, I guess you have forgotten about the flogging last time.
It's regarding a serious matter.
Throw him out immediately!
I've delivered the goods as the high priest ordered, so I'll be leaving now.
It's the contract paper I promised.
As soon as me and the westerner get to Nagasaki, East India Company will send their ship to here.
That ship will carry the weapons and everything else you want.
What if I let you and the westerner go,
and the ship does not arrive?
How could you say such things about East India Company that rules the ocean?!
A merchant's mind is the same whether it's a big scale merchant who crisscrosses the world or
it's a small scale merchant.
are you telling me you will keep that westerner here as a hostage?
I'm just applying the logic of business.
You must consider that westerner is a thing in my hand.
I want to check how he is doing first.
If you insist, I will let you see him as soon as the day breaks.
I wonder if the director is on our side.
Yes, but the exile in Sanbang village was there to see the director.
Is Beo Jin home yet?
Where could she be when the whole village is in untidy state?
Don't worry too much. Everything is probably fine.
I felt strange since yesterday when I saw her with the blue-eyed westerner. But, I kept it to myself. How could this happen?
He didn't seem like a bad guy.
If so, where in the world is she?!
Where are you, Beo Jin?
Go to Jeju Provincial Office now and give this to the governor.
Provincial Office? Would he even meet the likes of us?
He will if you show him this.
Medallion of king's order: A medallion that proves identity of a royal secret inspector
Me...Do you recognize me?
It doesn't hurt as badly as it looks..
Don't lie to me. How could it not hurt?!
Don't worry. Beo Jin, we'll be able to get out of here safely soon.
Help! Anybody help us!
Is anyone out there?
There's no use, William.
I saw it when we were being taken to here. We're deep in the forest.
The exile told me to be careful.
He told me not to get out of Sanbang village and not go to the high priest's house.
He already knew everything.
Park Gyu did?!
Don't worry. I'm sure Park Gyu will come to save us.
If he already knew everything, he would come for sure.
Right? You think so, too, don't you?
Right. He'll definitely come...
I sent messages to Jungyi Hyun and Jeju Provincial Office. In addition, I told the director of Daejung to be absent from his office now.
There will be no better opportunity than tonight.
If we just wait for the merchant group in Hanyang to keep its promise, we'll lose the opportunity.
Moreover, the exiled scholar, Park Kyu, seems to be someone the central government sent.
Don't be afraid. He will get killed tonight.
We just need to put all our efforts together tonight.
-Go to the armory and reorganize the weapons. -Yes!
We must start at the same time in Daejung Hyun, Jungyi Hyun, and Jeju Provincial Office. Prepare for signal fire and we leave now!
You, go back to each unit and check on the process of what I ordered.
You, take the westerner to the storage rom on the north side.
Are you okay?
Shhh... There's a guard outside.
Someone's coming here.
Park... Park Gyu?
the royal secret inspector!
The royal secret inspector is coming.
It is a beautiful place. This place is...
When you are just about to get used to Tamna, you're leaving.
William, what is going to happen to him now?
Sir, please save, William. I will do anything you tell me to.
If I leave without Beo Jin, I'll regret it for the rest of my life.
