Our Blooming Youth Episode 1 recap: Rumor about how the Crown Prince has been cursed by the ghost has spread rapidly beyond the palace walls. So he has a dark secret he can’t tell anyone.
There are rumors spreading throughout the royal palace. The Crown Prince Lee Hwan (Park Hyung-sik) cannot use his right arm. He was shot in the right shoulder with a poison arrow while hunting a year ago. However, what’s strange is that the hunting grounds were a forbidden zone, leading to speculation that he has been cursed by the ghost. Because he killed his own brother by giving him poison in order to take the throne.
Rumors are spreading rapidly beyond the palace walls. The market street locals are gossiping about the health of the Crown Prince’s right arm. The Prime Minister advises the King that appointing the Crown Prince as the representative at upcoming the Great Hunting Ceremony in 15 days’ time would dispel these rumors.
Crown Prince Hwan still thinks about that day. The day he received a strange and mysterious letter. The letter claimed to be written by a ghost.
- You may have ascended the throne by killing your brother, but you will never be king.
- Even if you have arms, you won’t be able to use them.
- You won’t be able to walk even if you have legs.
- You will grow old and die alone without a wife or children.
- You best friend will stab you in the back.
- And a lot of people will be killed because of your stupidity.
- The people will try to get you dethroned.
- You will go crazy and wander across the country.
- And the curse will only be able to be broken by your death.
Unjustly Accused of Murder
At the same time, Lady Min Jae-yi (Jeon So-nee), the fiancé of the Crown Prince’s Close friend, is accused by the authorities of poisoning her entire family. This was due to her involvement in an affair with a man. Rumors have already spread far and wide.
Lady Min Jae-yi survives and hides in a cave to treat her wounds. Afterwards, she disguises herself as a man and sets out to find the Crown Prince to uncover the truth. She believes that the death of her family is closely related to the Crown Prince.
Jae-yi has a loyal servant named Ga-ram (Pyo Ye-jin) who helps her in disguising as a soldier to attend the Great Hunting Ceremony.
When the Great Hunting Ceremony arrives, the Crown Prince must show everyone that his right arm remains functional. However, when he’s isolated in the jungle, the curses of the ghost reemerge.
