Two hundred years ago! When a country called Goryeo was about to fall, your ancestor came to see me. If he has my power, he can establish a country and become a king. Then if I help him, the next generation, and the generation after… He will make sure that they will serve me forever. So I killed everyone that was against your ancestor. And established this country. That’s what I did.
I resisted even getting my hopes up at the green-tinted, apparently disembodied POV shots that start appearing here, because I was super-paranoid about it being just one last twist of the knife. Like, “Why do you keep trying to hurt me more, drama…”
(Also, I like to think that they left out all the green-tinted scenes of Shoutarou sleeping, Shoutarou changing clothes, Shoutarou in the shower… because you know Philip’s peeping in on that. For science.)
