My favorite took places right after Yi Ui-Bang was assassinated. The central committee was in session discussing the situation when suddenly Yi Ui-min kicks open the door, everyone in the room was scared to death, he then screamed real loud then slammed his axe into the table. Absolutely brilliant to see Chung Jung bu's expression.
My favorite scene is any one with Advisor Yi...he always lightens things up. The central comittee...I never understood them. They are all generals yet they are scared of everything that threatens them. How ironic.
That Ui-min scene was a good one! One of my favorites involved the Empress Dowager and Chung Jung-bu when he was held captive. Don't read on if think SPOILER:
The Empress went to see Chung Jung-bu and they both remembered the old times when she first came to the palace and Jung-bu was a faithful servant to King Injong. Jung-bu recalls that the Empress was beautiful. Then she tells him that she hates what he has became! And they cry! The Empress cries! It's heartrending! Jung-bu repents and then the Empress says they will meet again (like in the afterlife). What struck me in the scene was a tenderness revealed toward him; all the time beneath her hate and rage against him was a supreme sad disappointment in him.
I also like all the dream sequences such as when before Yi-bang died when he was wounded in the cave and imagines seeing Yi Ko. Also when Ui-min, I think SPOILER:
sees Brue crying blood!
I also like the scenes where Kyung Dae-seung goes into the wilderness and just plain SCREAMS for a long time.
I guess some of my favorites would include: 1. the series of scenes where Mubi basically gives Ui Bang a personal funeral (including the immolation of Ui Bang's body) and renounces ambition and future (leaves son to become and monk and leaves the show). 2. Ui Bang's delirious last dreams with the vision of Yi Ko 3. The Empress Dowager's meeting with Chung Jung Bu in prison. 4. The Empress Dowager's verbal dress down of Kyun following the Ui Bang assasination 5. The Empress Dowager's defiant refusal to shelter Kyun in his last moment of desperation. 6. Ui Bang's duel with Viceroy Cho (W. Capital rebel leader)--no martial arts-- just ride the horses and swing the weapons. 7. The battle scene (vs W. Capital rebels) where Ui Min's army is ambushed and looks doomed but he rides into the midst of the enemies as arrows stick in his armor and single-handedly turns the tide of battle. 8. The first appearance of Kyung Dae Seung in the show, where he ruefully views the slaughter of villagers caused by Ui Bang and saves a child, while, in the background, Duduel observes and says to himself "now there is a man to bring light to the darkness"--what an entrance.
Cho Won Jung: (seriously) "Now that Kyung Dae Seung is dead and Archfiend is ousted to Surabul, this must be heaven's will for me to take over the regime....yes.....(clinches his fists) I will control this world! hahahaha"
2nd place (Episode 79):
Huh Seung: "Minister, what is this?" Monkeyman: "Chief Imperial Convoy, it's a gift to congradulate you for overthrowing the Haeju clan successfully. So take it."
Huh Seung looks at the jewels...
Huh Seung: "Minister, I had to risk my life for this coup. Is my effort worth only this?" Monkeyman: "No, No, of course not... this just a beginning, just wait, I am preparing many more gifts for you." Huh Seung: "Minister, there is something I want as a gift." Monkeyman: "Oh, tell me. If it's for you, I will get you anything, even a star in the sky. hahahah." Huh Seung: "I..... want your head." Monkeyman: "Muarra!"
1st place (Episode 8):
Yi Ui Bang: "Great Generals, did you come here to kill me?" One of Great Generals:"Kill the Chief Imperial Convoy!"
Other Great General: "What are you waiting for? kill the traitors!"
still nobody moves....
Yi Ui Bang gives the signal, imperial convoy surrounds the great generals.
Yi Ui Bang: "Great general, didn't you know? All the soldiers in the capital have sworn to join our great cause." One of Great Generals: "MUARRRRA !!!!!!"
Yi Ui Bang smashes his head with the iron club, the imperial convoys kill all the great generals.
Chung Jung Bu in his office.....looking at his sword.
Chung Jung Bu: (smiling) "Tonight, once Chief Imperial Convoy is killed, I will be able to clinch all the power in his country."
Yi Ui Bang kicks open the door and enters.
Chung Jung Bu: (astonished) "Chief Imperial Convoy.. How did you...." Yi Ui Bang: (calmly) "Superior General, all the great generals in the capital have been killed." Chung Jung Bu: (shocked) "Muarra" Yi Ui Bang: (pissed off) "Superior General, why did you betray the great cause. For anyone who turns his back on the great cause, I will personally smash his head!"
Yi Ui Bang smashed the table in front of him, Chung Jung Bu takes a step back with his sword.....
in the mist of tension, the episode ends.
