Seol Hwa is the daughter of Sa Baek Hwa and the foster sister of Yi Jeok and Yi Hwi after their escape from the palace. Affiliated with her mother's gisaeng house Yu Hyang Ru, she is also a member of Deung Ha Bul Myung, usually acting as a spy for the rebel army. During the period of King Jin Won's bridal selection, Seol Hwa entered the palace using her mother's name Baek Hwa (뱈화) as a maidservant of Hyun Bin to aid Nabi inside the palace.


Jeogwa Revolution Edit

Main article: Jeogwa Revolution

In the midst of the Jeogwa Revolution orchestrated by the former king's consort Yoon Yeon Lee, Seol Hwa found two boys hiding in their house, one of which was greatly injured.[1] She immediately notified her mother, who she bumped to along the way. Upon encountering the two, she asked her mother whether she should call the doctor, but her mother ordered her to call the guards instead. Jeok and her mother engaged in a brief argument, with the child defending his companion from Young Hwa's insistence to dispose of the injured boy. In the end, after Jeok's sacrifice of his own eye in exchange of having to kill Hwi, Young Hwa agreed to take the boys into her home and ordered Seol Hwa to call for a doctor to treat Hwi's injuries.[2]

Plot Edit

Fateful Encounter Arc Edit

Ten years later, Nabi is visited by Yi Won but was immediately rejected. Seol Hwa then spends some time with Nabi in a pavilion of Yu Hyang Ru and tells her that he must have been a wealthy person judging from his physical aesthetic. Jeok then arrives from Nam Hyeon and Seol Hwa welcomes him despite his sudden appearance.[3]

Compact Heist Arc Edit

One night, Seol Hwa welcomes a visitor at Yu Hyang Ru and that everyone else has departed, advising him to speak freely and comfortably with some members of Deung Ha Bul Myung. She then leaves them to speak amongst themselves.[4] She then unintentionally interrupts her mother's and Seon Woo's dialogue due to an ensuing ruckus outside.[5]

On the night that Nabi was poisoned, Wol Young Hwa had a drinking bet with Yi Won. In line with this, she twisted her ankle a bit. When Nabi arrives, Seol Hwa is seen with Jeok taking care of her mother and tells Nabi that Young Hwa has already seen a physician.[6]

Revolt Procurement Arc Edit

Yi Jeok catches Seol Hwa

An eavesdropping Seol Hwa is caught by Jeok

At a place near Yu Hyang Ru, Seol Hwa eavesdrops by the window and listens to the conversation between Nabi and Jeok. Nabi notices her instantly, but Seol Hwa signals her to keep it a secret. However, Jeok immediately catches her, telling her that eavesdropping is not a nice thing to do. She tells them that she only wanted to see the two ever since Nabi was taken off the gisaeng registers. He realizes that Seol Hwa became lonely and pats her on the head. Blushing, she denies that she did not get really lonely. The two then agree to include Seol Hwa in their "secret discussion". Jeok tells her that they are planning to sell Yu Hyang Ru to earn 100,000 nyang. Seol Hwa becomes surprised and tells him that her mother might faint at this thought.[7]

Rebel Army Suppression: Execution Edit

Seol Hwa collapses

Seol Hwa collapses due to her injuries

As the royal army's forces launch a surprise attack at Yu Hyang Ru, Seol Hwa is caught by a royal guard and resists him, refusing to beg to a king who thinks lowly of his people. On the verge of being killed, her mother immediately comes to her aid and sticks an arrow on the guard's neck, seemingly subduing him. She orders her daughter to flee, but Seol Hwa collapses from her previous injuries acquired from the archers. As Young Hwa cradles her daughter helplessly asking for help, the guard she struck earlier impales her with his sword, before being stabbed afterwards by Hwi, who finally arrives at the scene.

Hwi carries Seol Hwa and escapes together with Young Hwa, who orders Hwi to go ahead and take Seol Hwa somewhere safe. Amidst Hwi's initial reluctance, he takes Seol Hwa to a safer location. He reaches Baek Ho and asks him to take Seol Hwa out of the chaos.[8]

Bridal Selection Arc Edit

Seol Hwa hits Jeok

Seol Hwa cries while hitting Jeok

In the aftermath of the attacks, Seol Hwa comes to know of her mother's demise, Seon Woo's incarceration, and the rebel army's defeat, making her traumatized and motionless. At the rebel army's interim headquarters, Baek Ho becomes worried about her and tells Jeok how he wished for her to express her frustration. Since Hwi, who is closest to Seol Hwa, is not around, Jeok instead comes up to her and apologizes repeatedly. Afterwards, Seol Hwa cries and hits Jeok unceasingly, all while he continues to apologize.[9]
