The tattoo engraving scene in episode 42 of “King’s Daughter” is the most beautiful love scene I have been priveleged to watch.
The scene is so sensual, disturbing, provocative and innocent all at the same time, that even if Myeong Nong (Jo Hyun Jae) and Seolnan (Seo Hyun Jin) did not exchange any kiss it still managed to take my breath away. I was literally holding my breath from beginning to end of this scene. When Myeong Nong touched Seolnan’s shoulder, I tell you, I could feel my heart jump. It is as if Myeong Nong is already branding Seolnan, staking his claim on her body. It was so primitive and disturbing but oh so beautiful.
I have watched this scene so many times since last night, but the emotions are the same every time I watch it. What a perfect love scene. I have never been so moved by a love scene as much as this one did.
Our Jo Hyun Jae and Seo Hyun Jin gave a great performance. They are beautiful together – our Hyun Jae is so manly, while Seo Hyun Jin is so petite and feminine. They are luminous in this scene!
A Chinese fan translated the dialogue for this scene from Chinese to English. Sharing it here with everyone:
Crown Prince tells Seolnan that it is his first time to engrave a tattoo, so it maybe a bit painful.
Crown Prince asks Seolnan where she wants the tattoo to be engraved. Seolnan first thought to have the tapir tattoo placed over her Soo Baek Hyang tattoo, but she hesitates as she recalls Dorim’s words not to show it to anyone.
Then Crown Prince becomes annoyed at being made to wait long and rudely tells Seolnan that he would consider Seolnan as a man even if she is nude in front of him. OUCH!
Then Crown Prince begins to engrave the tattoo on Seolnan.
While making the engraving, Crown Prince tells Seolnan that whoever engraves the tattoo for a Bi Moon becomes the master/owner of that Bi Moon. Crown Prince adds that even though he knows that Seolnan is not loyal to him, Crown Prince is still Seolnan’s master/owner.
Seolnan replies that she has loyalty to him.
Crown Prince replied that she is looking for her sister and nothing else on her mind. Then Crown Prince tells Seolnan that her first mission is to become Soo Baek Hyang and serve the King as a Princess.
Seolnan said Dorim had told her something about SBH and also said that she can see SBH in Seolnan.
Here are some screencaps from this beautifully-executed love scene between Myeong Nong and Seolnan.
