Emperor Lee Gon and detective Jung Tae Eul seem to have some kind of unseen and mysterious connection with each other. Though Kim Go Eun's character was never a fan of the King, she started missing him in his absence. Even while focusing on her work, the detective's mind was fully occupied with the thoughts of Lee Gon.
Still, she managed to figure out a missing thread in the investigation of a mysterious murder case that the detectives nearly concluded. With the help of detective Kang Shin Jae, Jang Tae Eul managed to buy sometime from her superior officer, Park Moon Sik, to investigate the case further. It remains to be seen if her investigation will lead her to Lee Gon's uncle, Lee Lim.
