It just seems that Joyoung fell in love with Chulin and she with him overnight. They weren't together for more than two days were they? And they were going to kill each other. How did they fall in love? I hate when characters fall in love so quickly.
Also, how could Joyoung give her the necklace? Didn't he understand what his mother told him? Seems foolish to me.
Seems to me that they wanted to kill each other when they were strangers. Now that they have some familiarity with each other, sparks are flying. I think it goes both ways, so it would be a strange, layered, Stockholm syndrome. First he was the captive, but he didn't see her much, but when she was the captive, they were riding the same horse-very close.
I was appalled that he gave her the necklace-sheesh, it's so important to him. Could have cost him his life, even. Guess that's a measure of his devotion to her.

Just before she died Lucy, his mother gave it to him with the instruction not to let anyone see it until the right time... only then, could his true identity be made known as DaeJoYoung.
This falling in love at the drop of a hat .. or a sword, or a snake bite... is just amazing. For DJY to give away that necklace really upset me. I would feel better if she wore it under her clothing, but right out there in view of everyone... perhaps DJY's father will see it

geema Your hands are so pretty. Your cheeks are so pretty." Eunha answers back to Andrea, "You are pretty all over".
I was so upset that he gave her the necklace!!!! how is he going to prove to his dad his true identity? that was so dumb of him! it's not like he knew the girl for a while, and was going to marry her! he had just met her! I wonder if Chulin is a real character.
anyways I was really hoping that he would tell his father who he really was. I don't think I would've been able to hold it in for long.
It's just one of those movie/drama moments where people impulsively do things they'll come to regret later. Giving away the necklace is one such foolish act. But I think he wants his father to know first that he can live up to his name and claim his rightful place before he says, "Yay, look at me, I'm your son! Now make me King." But, the necklace would've really helped.
pure speculation -- but i am guessing that necklace will stop DJY's father from killing Chulin, or some such dramatic effect that is more esential than proving his sonhood.
DJY will prove it in a way much deeper than the necklace.
off the topic of Chulin --- i thought Yeon's speech to his son was really nteresting. A very different response than Kyun-hwon in Emperor Wang Guhn. Where Kyun-hwon publicly & privately dimissed his elder son (who was also trying to earn is respect), Yeon shows that he really does care about his son...it will be interesting to see what happens, and how it affects their relationship.
Good catch, Badtz--I saw the episode and immediately thought classic-case-of-Stockholm-Syndrome. Certainly made the episode more interesting; not sure if it makes some of the elements more feasible, but it's an interesting possibility. Like ginnycat5, I thought it was a ridiculous twist when he gave the necklace away, but Im guessing the reason for it is that Dae Jungsang is going to run into Chulin in the next episode or two and see the necklace, and then he'll start figuring things out. DJY wouldn't tell him who he is, so Jungsang will piece it together. And maybe whatever else might accompany that, along JPs thinking. But yeah, giving it away didn't sit right with me either, regardless of what it develops into. (Of course, wearing the thing out in the open when traveling through hostile territory doesn't make too much sense either, does it!?)
Yes, Chulin is really flaunting the pendant in front of her partner (Commander Li). It seems like they are settng up three potential love triangles on this show: Joyoung- Chulin- Commander Li Joyoung-Sukyoung- Namseng Sukyoung- Joyoung- Chulin
