In episode 11 of MBC series The Moon that Embraces the Sun, Lee Hwon (Kim Soo Hyun) and Wol (Han Ga In) encounter by chance at the downtown, and watch the puppet show on the noisy street market.
In order to send clothes to the Jan Shil (Bae Noo Ri) who pursued by Seongsucheong, Wol comes to the noisy street market alone. In order to find Shim San, last person who knew the inside story of the death of Yeon Woo, Lee Won and Woon (Song Jae Rim) secretly visit the eunuch’s house, and in the process encounter Wol by chance.
Lee Hwon jokingly said to Wol, “The shaman who changes the adversity can wander during the daylight? No wonder my body is uncomfortable.” Wol gets worried with eyes wide open, feeling badly intense. At this time, they found the puppet performance playing at the street-side, although they want to watch, but the puppet businessman requests for entrance fee from Lee Hwon. Lee Hwon tells the man he has no money, and is scoffed by the businessman, to alleviate the embarrassment of Lee Hwon, Wol pays the money for him. Lee Hwon who is a little shy said, “Inadvertently caused you trouble. Back to the palace will immediately return to you, don’t worry.” The look while embarrassing provoked laughter.
The puppet show tells the story of king falling in love with court lady. Wol whole-heartedly watch the show. On the contrary, because of not accustomed to watch a show on the street and the story is too boring, Lee Hwon begins to secretly look at Wol, and seems to see through her. Wol asks Lee Hwon about Yeon Woo, “You saw her?” Lee Hwon tells Wol that Yeon Woo has passed away, and said, “I want to protect her, but failed to do so. So until now I still cannot let go of her in my heart.”
Then, he told Wol, “I heard that shaman can talk with spirit, if can really do so, you help me to tell her, tell her that I very very love her,” wanting to tell Yeon Woo the words that he didn’t manage to say. Wol’s eyes are filled with tears after listening, looking at Hwon sadly.
At this point, Yang Myung (Jung Il Woo) saw them, and is remorseful for always been late by a step again, dropping tears of chagrin, identical when during exorcism ritual ceremony 8 years ago.
Watching the show, the audience said, “Han Ga In expression is my performance,” “The confession of Kim Soo Hyun is distressing,”, “Finally the words Lee Hwon didn’t say when young is spoken” and so on.
