Do you think its possible that Il was so insistent on Hak specifically being Yona's bodyguard because he was hoping to nudge her away from Soowon (someone he perhaps worried might turn out similar to Yu-hon) and have her want to marry Hak instead? ... or maybe do you think he was aware of Hak's feelings and wanted to make sure Yona had someone indefinitely loyal to her at her side?
Y’know what anon? I have absolutely no idea XD Part of me desperately wants to think that there was a lot going on with Il that we are currently unaware of: that he did think Soo-Won was up to (or could eventually get up to) something, did have some deep insight into the
plot looming over his rule, wasn’t just a calm pacifist with no backbone, and did assign Hak to Yona because he saw Hak’s loyalty as true and unwavering and made him Yona’s bodyguard on purpose. We’ve seen hints that there is more to him, but just how much more I’m not so sure :/
On the other hand though… I’m just kinda like “ehhhhh??” *shrugs* Because, you’d think that if Il had the foresight to assign Hak to Yona because he didn’t trust Soo-Won that he would have put other precautions into place and not die as he did (seemingly just stabbed through the chest with no resistance)? For me this is the part that… doesn’t really add up? (Yet??)
I guess it’s just such a foggy part of the plot right now that I have no idea XD But, that also means I’m totally open to almost all theories, and I quite like the “Hak was made Yona’s bodyguard for more than just his ability” theory, even if I’d like a bit more explanation with it ^ ^
Saeyoung: I want to hold you in my arms with a smile on my face, but forgive me because I can’t… maybe one day… I hope everything is possible, keeping you safe by my side and… traveling to the space station to exchange our vows…
Cheritz: “Do you, Lia, take this man, Saeyoung Choi, as your lawfully wedded husband?”
Me: I, Lia, take you, Saeyoung Choi, to be my lawfully wedded husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part up in the space station.
Cheritz: I pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss —
Me: *Smooching* A little bit too late….
I am beyond happy right now… this morning… precisely at 7:30 AM before my 8 AM class… I received the most beautiful package of my life despite the gloomy rainy weather and the dreadfulness of final exams. Cheritz never fails to make me smile and die of overflowing happiness. Sorry… I just needed a place to ramble my excitement ヽ(ﾟ〇ﾟ)ﾉ
