Our Blooming Youth Episode 7 recap: After the Crown Prince decides that he can’t trust Jae-yi. Then he kicks her out of the palace.
After reading the suicide note from a man claiming to be Jae-yi’s lover, the Crown Prince becomes unable to trust her anymore. He angrily orders for Jae-yi to be dragged away and sternly commands that she is forbidden from ever showing up at the East Palace again.
Jae-yi cries and feels confused, unable to comprehend why the man whom she loved like a brother would smear her with a suicide note. Meanwhile, the Crown Prince is equally devastated and disappointed. Jae-yi was the light in his dark world, but now that light has turned out to be a lie.
That night, Jae-yi sleeps on the autopsy table at Myung-jin’s laboratory. The next morning, Jae-yi’s movements on the table shock Ga-ram, who realizes that it is Jae-yi’s body. Overjoyed, she can’t help but show her excitement.
Han Sung-eon visits the Crown Prince on the same day and requests to see the suicide note. He then confesses that he firmly believes in Jae-yi’s innocence, no matter how grave the accusations against her. He explains that it was his duty to protect her until the very end, especially after accepting her marriage proposal.
The Crown Prince agrees with Han Sung-eon, stating that he too believes in Jae-yi’s innocence. He promises to help Jae-yi reveal the truth because she is the daughter of his teacher. The Crown Prince even goes as far as promising to send Jae-yi to Han Sung-eon if he finds her. Although he is lying through his teeth.
However, only a few days have passed and the Crown Prince cannot shake the thought of Jae-yi. He disguises himself as Bundit Park and visits her at Myung-jin’s laboratory. His demeanor has changed from the day before and he brings with evidence that Jae-yi had hidden in a secret basement room.
The evidence is a “Dried Peony” that was found in an incense burner from a medium house that was involved in the murder case. Myung-jin examines the dried peony and explains that peonies are odorless and not commonly used as incense. Jae-yi suggests that there might be something mixed in with the peonies.
Before the Crown Prince leaves, Jae-yi reveals to him that she was in the kitchen cooking on the day of the murder and saw the same dried peony. She remembers it clearly as being the same type that was in the incense burner.
As Jae-yi walks away, the Crown Prince is left standing alone, wondering why he had to come all the way here just to bring her a dried peony. Or was he trying to apologize for kicking her out of the East Palace the day before?
