Whether as Park Ha or Bu Yong, her brains are always on display. No, not literally! As Bu Yong, she was clearly the smarter of the two sisters who could always answer the Crown Prince’s riddles and playfully banter with him in poetry. She had even saved her sister, Hong Hwa Yong, from shame and embarrassment on multiple occasions by engaging Lee Gak in distracting conversation when it was clear her sister had no idea how to respond to the Crown Prince’s apparent adoration for poetry and literature. In the present day as Park Ha, she has been independent practically her entire life and knows how to take care of herself. If something is fishy, Park Ha can usually tell.

It takes a lot of courage and guts to team up with Lee Gak in order to draw out criminals, Hong Se Na and Yong Tae Mu, but Park Ha does it with fierce determination. She willingly dives into danger to bring justice and help Lee Gak solve the mystery of why he was transported to the modern times and figure out what really happened to Yong Tae Yong, his present day self. As her past self, there is no better sign of inner strength than to willingly eat dried permissions that have been sprinkled with poison, knowing that she’s, not only saving her evil family, but the Crown Prince as well.

How much influential power does it take to make a Crown Prince lose his composure and participate in childish pranks? How much influence must he be under in order to squeal and prance around after realizing how fun the modern times can be? Enough said! Haha.

I think there’s something just so amusing and endearing about his childlike innocence when it comes to discovering something new. Of course, it’s understandable that he would be absolutely mesmerized by all the modern day items and technology, but it doesn’t make it any less comical to see his face light up in pure delight or to see the wits getting scared out of him by moving images on a television. His sidekicks make it even more hysterically funny, but Lee Gak is always at the center of their shenanigans. Spending time with him would never be a bore because there are too many things in the world to show him and, more often than not, he loves them! What’s truly amazing about this particular trait though, is that Lee Gak adjusts pretty quickly and even turns situations around to suit his needs. Remember when he called a tow truck to take him and his vehicle to the park so Park Ha could teach him how to drive? Ha! Talk about clever!

When Lee Gak isn’t busy trying to figure out the modern world and trying to calm his racing heart due to sheer terror, he actually already has his own playfulness. His carefree attitude is nicely countered his by dedication to his duties – like tracking down the ones responsible for his Crown Princess’s death. He certainly knows how and when to be serious, but he also knows very well when to kick back and enjoy himself. He finds amusement in teasing Park Ha, but she always returns the favor with equal fervor, making them the perfect match. I dare you not to smile when you watch their antics, especially that one time where he pretended to have another allergy attack and demanded Park Ha give him CPR again! HA! Lee Gak is really the best of both worlds and he is honestly such a sweetheart now that he knows what true love really is… without all the saeguk restrictions! He he!

Don’t let his laid back demeanor fool you though, because when Lee Gak roars, even the lions might tuck tail and flee the scene. He can have a short temper, but they honestly don’t last long if it’s completely unreasonable – only because he was raised to have a full staff waiting on him hand and foot. Now that he doesn’t have that luxury, it took him a bit to adjust, although he does pretty well for himself. That kind of short-temper wasn’t the fierceness I was talking about though. No, I’m talking about the unforgiving side of him. The side that goes head to head with those trying to take him – or his reincarnation – down. Lee Gak constantly tries to stay one step ahead of the game and carries the burning negativity in his heart as fuel to defeat Yong Tae Mu.
