Our Blooming Youth Episode 4 recap: Jae-yi must figure out why the messenger was killed. And she finds out it has something to do with the Crown Prince.
Traveling back in time to when the Crown Prince Hwan was young. He and his close friend Han Sung-eon decided to climb the palace wall and venture out to play. Along the way, Han Sung-eon was robbed by a kid, leaving him bankrupt. In a hurry, the two boys went to Master Min’s house, who was the Crown Prince’s teacher, for help.
When they arrived at Master Min’s house, the Crown Prince discovered that the thief who had robbed Han Sung-eon was actually Jae-yi in disguise as a boy, pretending to be Master Min’s daughter. She had stolen the money to help an orphaned boy who was being sold into slavery by his creditors.
Returning to the present, Jae-yi tells the Crown Prince that she remembers that day well because it was the first day she met Han Sung-eon and fell in love with him at first sight. Her words irritate the Crown Prince, and it’s evident that he’s jealous. To make matters worse, Jae-yi also says that Han Sung-eon is more handsome than him. 🤣
The Crown Prince issues a command to Jae-yi to transport the corpse by wagon to Myeong-jin, a god-level forensic scientist, in order to find out the cause of death. Upon arrival, Jae-yi meets Ga-ram, a disciple of Myeong-jin. They are happy to see each other again but keep their joy hidden to maintain their true identities.
Soon after, Myeong-jin confirms that the deceased was poisoned by Mamushi stone snake venom. A poison that constricts blood vessels and leads to paralysis, ultimately resulting in death. What’s more alarming is that this is the same poison that was used a year ago!
Jae-yi rushes to bring the autopsy results to the Crown Prince. Then she realizes that the body was the messenger who was sent to deliver a wedding gift to her. This realization causes her to reflect on the events of that day. But she can’t seem to piece everything together.
Jae-yi is also aware that the Mamushi stone snake venom, which attacked the Crown Prince a year ago, is the same as the one found in the messenger’s body.
