Our Blooming Youth

Since taking the throne, Lee Hwan received a mysterious letter that terrified him. The content of the letter continues to haunt because it writes that Lee Hwan is the killer of Ui Hyeon. The contents of the letter disappoint Lee Hwan as he seems to blame Ui Hyeon’s death on him.

Rumors of Lee Hwan’s right hand being disabled continued to circulate in the palace. The National Rights Advisor, Jo Won Bo, takes this very seriously. He didn’t want the future king to have a deformed right arm.

Not only that, he also planned to take advantage of Lee Hwan’s weakness to overthrow him because he wanted the queen’s son, none other than his nephew, to have the opportunity to become the Crown Prince.

Won Bo wants the king to hold the Great Hunt to see if Lee Hwan’s right hand can be used. His idea was opposed by the Left State Councilor, Han Jung Eon, who wanted Lee Hwan to recover first.

However, the king decided that the Great Hunt would still be held. Lee Hwan had no choice but to prepare mentally.

Worry is more evident for Jung Eon’s best friend and son, Han Sung On. Han Sung On himself is preparing to marry Min Jae Yi, the daughter of a scholar named Min Ho Seung.

Unfortunately, just as the wedding day was approaching, Min Ho Seung’s whole family passed away. Min Jae Yi is accused of murder.

Rumors also say that Jae Yi is in a relationship with a man who has been cared for by his family since childhood. Jae Yi has no choice but to run away.

During the chase, he fell down a ravine. Jae Yi survives, but no one knows about it, except for two maids, one of whom is Jang Ga Ram.

He then disguised himself as a soldier and tried to approach Lee Hwan. Jae Yi has a special purpose for that because before his father passed away, he gave a letter that was sent with a courier from Lee Hwan.

The late Ho Seung also advised Jae Yi to protect the Crown Prince. Since then, Jae Yi believes that the death of his whole family is related to Lee Hwan.

Review Our Blooming Youth

Big Hunt has arrived and Lee Hwan looks very confident. While engrossed in hunting, an arrow was shot towards Lee Hwan. Jae Yi who was peeking from the tree became the defendant.

He immediately explained that he was Jae Yi and that he had come because of a letter sent by Lee Hwan. Intrigued by that answer, Lee Hwan married Jae Yi without immediate punishment.

Arriving at the palace, Lee Hwan surprised the mandarins who became enemies in the blanket with his hunt. However, when he was about to write a prayer, his hand mysteriously bled even though he was not injured. Bad rumors are back.

In that situation, Lee Hwan went back to meet Jae Yi. Jae Yi convinces Lee Hwan that he came to help. The reason is, with Lee Hwan’s help, Jae Yi is sure that his family’s killer will be revealed.

He then revealed that the drop of blood on Lee Hwan’s hand earlier was a hoax and not the influence of the ghost.

Lee Hwan then personally proved Jae Yi’s words to refute the baseless rumors. Unfortunately, when Jae Yi’s trick was proven correct, Lee Hwan still did not trust the girl. When Jae Yi discovered all the secrets of his mysterious letter, Lee Hwan was shocked and even more moved.
