Eventually, Yoo Shin was able to grab hold of this title, after believing that Mu Jin had died in the fire initiated by [[Yoo Ja Gyeom]].

As Crown Prince [[Yi Jeok]] and [[Yi Hwi]] fled the burning palace, Yoo Shin was entrusted by Yeon Lee to kill the queen.

Leading his men, he threw a dagger at Hwi, injuring his left chest.

This, however, failed due to the interception of [[Wol Young Hwa]] as she took them into her home. Weeks had passed, and the crown prince was not yet located. Yeon Lee angrily ordered him and Ja Gyeom to search for the child. As a result, he commandered a search party, taking with them boys within the age range of seven to eleven years old; and those who had a birthmark on his nape, similar to the crown prince. In the end, they were unable to find him.
