Taewoo scolds Hende for being drunk while Hende says that he came to meet up with him. Suwon and Gunte are glum over Taewoo’s rudeness [/not in the mood for chit-chat]. Suwon thanks Gunte for his help. Gunte says no, taking back those territories are Earth tribe’s long cherished wish and to be able to quickly accomplish it, he is so grateful that there are no words to express it. Suwon says that it has been a long time since he had gone back to his place and Yuno is definitely waiting for him anxiously. There is a scene of Yuno praying for his safe return. Gunte changes the topic by telling Suwon to at least have one or two women who can heal him. Surprised Suwon says how can he.. Gunte says that here he goes again. Shuku says that it is good if there are people like that around. Gunte is shock that there is none, he must be joking for Suwon is going to be 19 soon and there should be a concubines who is of age since he isn’t the same with Judo who is an old widower. Judo angrily complains not to make him an example. Gunte wonders whom to introduce Suwon with and it would be good if he has a daughter, no, wait, how about adopting from now on..
Shuku says that he had already set Suwon up before he ascended to the throne. Gunte asks if there is really nothing wrong with him for he really never had interest towards that type of thing. Then, Jungi appears behind Suwon. Suwon asks what is it but Jungi says it is nothing. Gunte says that speaking of daughter, doesn’t Jungi have one. With a sparkle, Jungi asks what about his beautiful daughter. Gunte says that it has been a long time since he saw her so is she doing okay, that modest [/dignified] daughter of his. Suwon and Judo wonders if they are talking about Lili. Jungi says that Lili isn’t at Suiko and she is having a docile smooth life. Suwon and Judo wonder if they are talking about Lili. [<- joke that how Jungi describes Lili isn’t the same as the real one] Jungi says however, if Suwon wants to call her into the palace, he’ll immediately call for her. Suwon says ‘there’s no need’ 10 times. Jungi says that he said no need so many times. Suwon nervously tells them if they can drop the topic. Shuku says that is so, after all, a king’s partner cannot be decided on too carelessly. Gunte protests that Suwon isn’t interested in girls and that kind of thing make people uneasy. Judo says that it seems that Suwon will go and play around at Awa.
Suwon recalls how he took hold of Yona. Blushing Suwon says that is.. Judo says that is? Blushing Suwon says ah, no.. Gunte asks if he met someone in Awa whom he had taken a fancy on. He asks where she is from and he’ll get her. Suwon says that there’s no need, it is just a passerby and he doesn’t recall what she looks like. Gunte is amused and Jungi is shock that Suwon would do that with a girl who is just passing by..how shameless. Blushing Suwon says that he didn’t do anything. Gunte couldn’t believe that he didn’t do anything so what kind of playing around did he do with that girl. Suwon starts to cry so Shuku tells them to stop their interrogation of Suwon for now since he has a meeting with Jungi. Suwon perks up and says that’s right. He calls Jungi that they should go. Gunte asks if it is a private discussion. Jungi says that it isn’t some messy topic that he is guessing but then, Water tribe and Earth tribe isn’t the same, and it’s very meticulous. After Gunte left, Jungi tells Suwon that regarding the drug problem, it is as he told him at the meeting before. The private groups in Shisen and Sensui had overall been neatly annihilated. And, it is just as what Suwon worried, and he’s afraid that it is indeed already not a problem solely for Water tribe. Suwon looks serious.
At Water tribe’s Ryusui, Zeno is apologizing to Yun. Walking through a market place, Yun says that he has no way of believing him. Zeno says that he won’t do it again. Yun tells him that he stained his clothes way too many times that it became so worn out that it is useless no matter how many times he sewed it. Jeha says so they are going to buy him clothes. Zeno bows and thanks Yun. They gave him money so he can go buy clothes. Yun warns him that if he damages the clothes again, he is going to wear a mino [raincoat made of straw]. Zeno says that it won’t be long when he belongs to a streak [naked] clan. Yun tells him that he already doesn’t want to wash blood stained clothes. Zeno just smiles. Holding some cloth, Yona says that it seems that he is very happy. Zeno says that it is because Yun is worried about him. Kija comments how nice this town is and is this how Water tribe’s territory is truly like. Jeha says that the coastal area was laid to waste. [<- not taken care of before due to the drug stuff?] Then, Shina holds a flower hairpin to Yona. Yona says that it is beautiful and where did he get it. Shina says there.
A grumpy merchant with some displayed jewelry asks if they are really going to buy. Shina doesn’t have money. Yona thinks that even if she gets money from Yun.. Jeha says that it doesn’t matter just to buy a cute hairpin once in a while. Kija tells her that there are very beautiful ornaments there. Holding some necklace, Yona says that it really suits Kija so cute. Kija says no, there’s no need for him. The merchant says that the blue gem is a protective stone that can bring healing and happiness. Yona asks about this one. He says that it can bring long life. Kija is interested with the long life gem to give to granny. After looking at the jewelry, Yona asks Jeha where Haku is. Jeha points to the side. Yona finds Haku sound asleep on a bench by the side. She is surprised that he is sleeping. Jeha explains that Haku was on night duty last night to watch over them so apparently he didn’t get enough sleep. Yona says that’s quite rare. Jeha agrees for even if he’s so tired, Haku would unexpectedly show that kind of relaxed expression. Yona says that it is because he trusts everyone. Jeha says that he heard an interesting thing and he’ll use that later on. [<- to tease Haku?]
Then, he dresses Shina up as a streaking clan and laughs his head off. The merchant tells him not to play with the merchandise. Zeno comments that he can only buy thin clothes that is like an undergarment with the money Yun gave. Zeno mutters that he had used a cloth that he picked up to wrap around his body or if there is no cloth, just use straw as clothes..it has been a long life. Someone giggles and asks Zeno if he would like big sis to buy him some clothes. Later on, Yun is impressed with the clothes that Zeno is wearing so he asks if the money was enough. Zeno says that it wasn’t enough. Yun asks how he was able to buy them. Zeno happily says that big sis bought it for him. Finding it suspicious, Yun asks where that big sis came from. A woman giggles and says that they bought it for him. It is Tetora and Ayura. After everyone exchanges greetings, Yona asks about Lili. Tetora says that Lili right now is a bit.. Yona says that’s right, she returned to Suiko. While Haku looks thoughtful, Yun asks if they bought Zeno’s clothes. Tetora says yes, it is a gift and she only wanted to give some strength to the cute guys and besides, to celebrate, she has a present. The guys are delighted to see her carrying a small jug of wine.
Jeha says that with beautiful women around, the wine is also more fragrant. Haku says that is how he got poisoned. Jeha asks if he is bringing up that old topic again. Tetora laughs and says that the water of Water tribe is used to ferment the grape wine. And of course, there is no poison inside. Kija looks already drunk. Jeha asks if Shisen and Sensui are already okay. Tetora says yes, it can be considered to be and speaking of that, they were unexpectedly able to see everyone here. Haku tells them that if they got something to say, then say it straightforward. “Quit beating around the bush and bribing us. You have a problem so you came to find us, right.” Yun is surprised. Tetora says that no wonder it is Haku. They bow down and say that they have a something to request regarding Lili. To their surprise, she informs them that Lili is currently banished from Suiko. She assures them that it isn’t that bad for them to be worried about it but as expected, she basically has no way of staying put since this time around, she said that she is going to Sei. <- country below Water tribe. Ayura says that both of them has no way of stopping Lili so even if it feels that they are bothering everyone but they still want to ask them to go to Sei and act as Lili’s bodyguard.
Comment: Honestly, there are a couple of ‘WTH’ scenes here for me. ^^; What’s up with that Suwon blushing? It seems out of character so perhaps, that is just for the comedy and for Gunte to keep on pestering him about it. I’m not sure if he is blushing over Yona or about what they are thinking he did with ‘that girl’. Then, Yun is worried about bloodstained clothes. Hm..Zeno has to be hacked up in order for him to use his powers. Next time, get him to strip naked before getting hacked then no worries about bloodstained clothes anymore. Of course, that would be an amusing sight, I mean, what would the enemies think if he goes charging at them naked? ^^ I got nervous when a hairpin was mentioned. Thankfully, there is no mention of the infamous hairpin so did she already move on? She didn’t say that she already has one. Jeha seems to be pampering her too much when obviously, they are very low on budget. Yun has to do more shopping since he doesn’t know how much decent clothes cost now. It would be amusing if Yona pinched Haku’s nose instead of touching his hair. It seems that there are some problems with the dragons being Yona’s harem. Jealousy?
For Suwon’s group, it is Taewoo who is out of place and he’s probably not inclined to forgive Suwon for what happened to Haku and what Suwon tried to do with Wind Tribe before. True enough, getting those lands didn’t exactly help their tribe and the one who most benefited from it is Earth tribe. Gunte’s arguments about Suwon being ‘good for Kouka’ don’t quite convince me that it is so. If there’s no war then there’s no war casualty. They are united for war and that rebellion happened after Fire helped Suwon ascend the throne and his head probably swelled up to think that he can do anything. Again, it is strange that he didn’t rebel while Iru is king when Iru is supposedly coward and pacifist. Iru might have given what he wanted so that there will be no blood shed. So during Iru’s reign, the five tribe meeting is just pure hypocrisy that they are okay with each other when actually, they are not. Anyway, Yona and others are going to Sei. I’m not too sure if they’ll bring the dragons with them since except for Zeno, they will immediately become useless. Unless they start to say that Sei used to be aprt of Kouka. I’m surprised that they are going to Sei when I thought with that weakness, they are all limited to journeys within Kouka. So, I think that they might encounter Suwon again in the near future.
