Warrior Baek Dong Soo OST – Crazy Heart
Dong Soo is fighting, he beats all the guys. In peeks at them and realizes his plan is not working. Dong Soo sees him, In runs away. But he runs into Sa Mo and Jin Ju, he turns the other way, it’s Dong Soo closing on him.
There’s no way out, so In begs for his life telling them that he has nothing to do with that, he now lives an ordinary life. In hugs Sa Mo’s leg. Sa Mo shakes him off and takes out his butcher knife meaning to kill him. Dong Soo stops him saying he’s already suffered, just let him go.
Sa Mo yells at him that this guy should have been killed long back, Jin Ju also asks Dong Soo if he’s forgotten what this guy did to her and her dad, she cannot let him go. But Dong Soo tells In to go before he changes his mind, so In stumbles away.
Sa Mo yells at Dong Soo, if he has forgotten the man’s evilness. Dong Soo returns asking, if killing him will change anything, he tells them let’s leave the place.
Yeo Un looks at the Queen, and asks if there’s any reason for her to want Dong Soo’s head. She asks back if an assassin needs a reason to wield his sword. Yeo Un chuckles, that of all the people, she picked the one he can’t kill.
She says, he can’t do this, can’t do that, is he making an excuse? He says sorry to her. The queen lets out, “Then…”
Later, Yeo Un bows and leaves. (Her order is not revealed to us)
The queen says to her father, she will definitely make him one of her people. Her father says it won’t be bad to join hand with him for now.
In runs into those fighters he hired, and the other way is Dae Ju’s lackeys, they take him to Dae Ju.
Dae Ju says, he heard that In would be stabbing him in the back. In denies that he just wants to kill Baek Dong Soo. So Dae Ju asks if he did kill him, In couldn’t say that. Dae Ju says if In couldn’t kill Dong Soo, naturally he would die, because he knew too much and even called away his fighters.
In knows his fate right away, he begs Dae Ju to spare his life but Dae Ju wouldn’t hear of it and orders the torture. They roll him in a mat, and the men hit him repeatedly with the poles. In cries out in pain.
They both watch the torture. Dae Ju asks Kenzo when their supporters will arrive, Kenzo says before the uprising, at sinsi (3pm-5pm).
[The queen’s voice] “Before osi (11am-1pm) on that day, have one of Dae Ju’s arms cut.” It’s the order Yeo Un got from her.
Yu Dae gives back the spear to the Prince, that he didn’t dare destroy the Woldo (the Crown Prince Sado’s spear). The Prince asks if he wants to defy the King’s order. He says, if so, he’s ready for the punishment. Cho Rip warns the Prince that the atmosphere outside the palace is not very reassuring, if there’s a need for a decisive action, whenever it is, he tells the Prince to take the Woldo in his hands.
Jin Ju is still frustrated why Dong Soo keeps letting In go. Jang Mi smiles and says, Dong Soo is becoming like her father (Gwang Taek). Jin Ju perks up.
Sa Mo asks Dong Soo whether or not he can take both them. Dong Soo says he will have to try to know that. The three fight, Dong Soo uses his spear to take away both men’s weapons and , at the end, beat them.
Jin Gi is satisfied that now Dong Soo’s martial arts exceeds Sword Saint’s. Sa Mo asks how Dong Soo learns to use that kind of spear, he says it’s his master, Sword Saint, who taught him.
Ji Seon and Jang Mi’s daughter come back, so they all get inside to talk. Before he walks in, Dong Soo feels the present of someone near, he notices and lets it slide. H gets inside. Kenzo shows up further away looking at him.
When alone, Kenzo is thinking , “Joseon’s best swordsman is Baek Dong Soo?”
Inside, they gather to listen to Ji Seon and Jang Mi’s daughter news from the market. Ji Seon says, she saw the lackey push a cart into a blacksmith shop. But when he came out, they saw the cart was empty. They sneak inside, but there’s no trace at all.
Dong Soo says that can’t be, he turns to Jin Ju. She nods and says clandestine is her specialty, just leave it to her. Jin Gi orders her not to go to the gambling house anymore, she pouts but agrees. Dong Soo suggests they do some prying at Dae Ju’s house. Sa Mo tells him to be extra careful.
Dae Ju’s son tells Dae Ju that adding the Japanese warriors, they would have at least a hundred men for the uprising. He asks about the gunmen. The son says he brought in those decent gunmen, with that, he tells his father they are now ready, only wait for his order. Dae Ju asks if he contacted Heuksa Chorong. He says yes, someone has already been sent there.
Dong Soo sneaks in Dae Ju’s house, he sees men are drinking, Tae San is among them. He walks to the back and finds In wrapped in a mat, arms tied. He kneels down and puts some water to his lips, In opens his eyes. Dong Soo untied the ropes and freed him, he tells him to go.
In is confused looking at him with tears in his eyes, he asks him why he did this, if he lets him escape, and then wants to come get him.
Dong Soo, “If I really wanted to kill you, I would have killed you before. I don’t want that, so quickly leave.” Then he gets up and leaves. In couldn’t believe Dong Soo helped him, he gets up and tries to sneak out of the house passing the drinking men. But the men see him, they all get up and follow him.
Yeo Un meets Dae Ju. Dae Ju says he heard Yeo Un met with the queen, he asks if she’d ordered him anything. Yeo Un tells him that she wants him to cut off Baek Dong Soo’s head. Dae Ju perks up, he asks what is his answer. Yeo Un says he told her he will kill him.
Dong Soo overhears their conversation from outside, his eyes widen.
Dae Ju asks if Yeo Un will be able to kill the one and only close friend. Yeo Un lets out a smile, “Close friend? That was a long time ago.” Dong Soo is shocked to hear that, then suddenly someone calls out to him, “Who is it?”
Dong Soo sees Kenzo standing there, he jumps down from the shadows showing himself to him, and turns to leave. Kenzo stops him and asks why he would hurry leave, it seems difficult for him to get in here, should he bring him some tea before he goes? He guesses that friend of his is inside. Dong Soo doesn’t let out a word, and wants to leave, but Kenzo draws his sword not letting him go.
They are about to fight when Yeo Un calls Dong Soo’s name.
Dae Ju says Baek Dong Soo visiting his home, “What can I do for you? Looks like there’s better show to watch here than the gambling house.” Dong Soo warns him that he’d better let him leave. Dae Ju laughs, “Since you broke into the tiger’s den yourself, you must bear the consequences.”
The soldiers surround Dong Soo. Yeo Un yells out, “Baek Dong Soo! How come you don’t even last a day?”
Dong Soo, “So, is that why you’ve made an agreement to kill me?” Dae Ju shouts to his men to attack him.
On the other side, Dae Ju’s men are closing on In. They hit him down to the ground and tells him that Dae Ju ordered them to kill him. The man shows In the poison he gave him earlier, and is about to put it in his mouth, just then an arrow hits a man behind In. The rest look around, In takes this chance and escapes. Another arrow hits another man, the rest get scared and retreat.
Jin Ju comes out, she thinks about what Jang Mi said, that Dong Soo is becoming like her father, she sighs, because of that she knows she needs to cover his back.
At Dae Ju’s house, men attack Dong Soo, the fight goes on until Dong Soo takes all the men down. Tae San and those fighters, that chased after In, join the area. But Kenzo tells them to stop, he will deal with Dong Soo himself. But Dae Ju doesn’t allow that, saying just to catch an insect, if Kenzo lends a hand where he will put his face. He nods to his men.
Gunmen come out and line up in front of Dong Soo. Dae Ju laughs, even if his martial arts were any better, “Can you escape the firearms?”
Yeo Un clutches his fist, he quietly reaches for his sword. But Dae Ju knows better, he tells him to stop that. Dong Soo closes his eyes but does not back down. Yeo Un thinks, “What are you doing Baek Dong Soo? Do you want to die?”
Dong Soo in standing position closes his eyes, braces himself for what to come. Dae Ju signals his men to fire. Just before the men pull the trigger, an arrow shots one gunman down. This alarmed the rest, they look around trying to locate where the arrow was coming from.
Further away, Jin Ju is reaching for another arrow but Jin Gi grabs her shoulder.
He throws an explosive thing to drop in the middle of Dae Ju’s men, it explodes, thus smokes is everywhere. Dong Soo escapes.
Dae Ju lets it go, he tells his men, before the uprising, everyone to mind their own. Yeo Un is leaving, when passes Tae San, he secretly tells him to get ready.
Dae Ju sits with Kenzo, he sorts out the incident, that Baek Dong Soo climbed the wall and entered his home, looks like he’s already heard something. It seems until now, he hasn’t found out anything. But, it’s better to stay alert.
Jin Ju, Jin Gi and Dong Soo has escaped safely. Jin Gi yells at her for acting on her own again, scared him, almost had his liver fallen out. Jin Ju laughs that he looks just fine, and walks along following the smiling Dong Soo.
In stumbles down, he laughs at what he had witnessed. That Dae Ju ordered him be killed while Dong Soo helped him escape. He says, “Baek Dong Soo, you bastard. I wanted to kill you. How come you are using that kind expression to look at me? Do I look pitiful? Exactly who is saving who? Why does it shake my heart like this?” He both laughs and cries.
The three come back. Ji Seon is waiting for him. She sees blood on his hand, she takes his hand and asks, how there isn’t a day that his body is fully healed. She uses a handkerchief to wipe the blood. He says he’s all right, she doesn’t need to worry, he smiles at her tenderly. Jin Ju sees them together ans feels sad. Jin Gi grabs her away.
Dong Soo tells them that, he went in Dae Ju’s house, it seems the uprising is about to start, but the specific plan and the time is still unclear. Sa Mo is frustrated that they know about it but cannot stop it. Cho Rip thinks they should report this to the Prince, he asks Dong Soo to come with him to the palace. Dong Soo agrees.
Yeo Un tells Gu Hyang what the queen ordered him to do, that she means for him to cut Dae Ju’s right and left arms. He tells her to prepared, and hands her a message, “These must be done before osi (11am-1pm).” She takes it and leaves.
An assassin reports to Yeo Un that what Yeo Un thought is right, the Japanese that have left the settlement are heading towards Hanyang. Yeo Un tells him to keep an eye on them, and let him know when they reach Hanyang.
Yeo Un sighs, “Looks like the time has come.” He thinks about what Dong Soo had heard, that he accepted the queen to kill him.
Flashback, after Jin Gi throws the smoke thing, the two meet. Dong Soo puts his hand on Yeo Un’s shoulder and says, if he wants him to give up, that will be possible only if he kills him. Present, Yeo Un touches his shoulder thinking of Dong Soo.
Dong Soo also is standing alone during the night, thinking of Yeo Un, that he accepted the queen to kill him.
Gu Hyang hands the message to an officer, then he gives it to another man, and another, the next one puts it in a book. There’s another man picks up and gives it to the high-ranking officer. He reads the message, and orders his men to, “capture him”.
Soldiers arrest Dae Ju’s lackey, that someone reported that he’s been collecting bribes from the earlier military examinees and gave them the illegitimate qualifications.
Dong Soo comes to the palace and sees the arrest.
The queen tells the Prince that although the king hopes for his substitute-governing, she’s afraid that it will hurt him. The Prince says it’s the phrase he must learn, he will do his best in dealing with the country’s matters. She says, it’s his responsibility to do so. Hun Gu interrupts and calls for her audience, he enters.
The Queen tells the Prince to leave, he gets up and bows. When he passes Han Gu, he notes on a bird’s cage the lady is carrying, he leaves.
Hun Gu tells her the news that Dae Ju trusted lackey is locked up in prison, and shows her a bird in the cage. The Queen reads Yeo Un’s letter telling her that Dae Ju’s lackey is now in jail, if she lets this bird fly, the lackey’ s life can be saved. If she keeps the bird, his head will be cut off at osi time. She smiles.
Dong Soo tells the Prince that Dae Ju, for sure, is currently plotting treason, but the exact time and plot is still unknown, therefore, it’s difficult to implement a countermeasure.
Dong Soo sees the Woldo, he’s surprised. The Prince says, it’s the one his father used. Flashback, The Crown Prince Sado asks his name, he says it’s Baek Dong Soo. The Prince smiles that they’ve grown up so well, he declares him, Yeo Un and Cho Rip, the future of Joseon.
Dae Ju visits his lackey in the prison, he asks him if he’s really innocent. The lackey avoids his eyes, and says, he is not completely unrelated. Dae Ju frowns, his son rushes to him and tells him, although the reported information is true, there’s no way to know who reported it. Dae Ju wonders who…….then he perks up.
Dae Ju visits the Queen, he asks why she did that. The Queen plays innocent and says what he’s talking about. Han Gu plays along, he scolds at Dae Ju if he’s saying that the Queen is related to his lackey’s imprisonment. Dae Ju stares at the Queen knowingly but he says in the opposite, that he doesn’t dare doing that.
The Queen says it’s not her doing. Dae Ju bows to her and says, he really has made a big mistake. He warns her that the uprising is ahead of them, they cannot drag their hind legs for a matter like this. He suggests her let his lackey go first, and interrogate for his crimes later, this uprising he is definitely needed. The Queen says she concedes. Dae Ju bows and leaves.
Hun Gu asks the Queen if she thinks, that Sky Lord, is he not too cautious for an assassin. She says only those to this degree can become her people.
The King continues to recover, he wants to immediately give the Prince the order of substitute-governing. Upon hearing that, the Queen’s hands start trembling. The King thinks the recent rumors about the Prince and the officials’ appeals, are because the Prince has never been acknowledged of running the country. As for the legitimacy, there’s already no problem, things will quiet down once the Prince starts governing. The King says to the Queens that tomorrow before the meeting he will give out the order, he’s telling her in advance. The Queen is worried, but acts submissive and bows.
The lackey gets out of the prison, he’s grateful to Dae Ju’s help. Dae Ju warns him the uprising is in two days, do not make mistake. Dae Ju’s son rushes inside and tells his father that the King has recovered. Dae Ju chuckles that the Queen will be looking for him soon. Just then a lady calls out, the Queen wants to see him. Dae Ju smirks and says the Queen has to pay the price for messing around with him. He laughs.
The Queen bangs the table asking if it’s not possible to move the plan one day ahead. Dae Ju says it cannot be done, at this critical stage, to go ahead when they are not completely ready, the chance the uprising to fail will be great. He tells her, but if she wants to stop the substitute-governing, they are not completely out of option. The Queen is interested, she asks what it is.
Han Gu hears his plan, he yells. Dae Ju insists this is the only way. The Queen stops her dad from scolding, she thinks Dae Ju is right. Hun Gu is worried how she can take such risk. The Queen says, just for one day will do. Hun Gu sighs. Dae Ju’s satisfied with his plan.
Dae Ju’s fighters line up,the Japanese are also ready. Gu Hyang reports to Yeo Un on the news. At Sa Mo’s place, Jin Ju suggests, if they keep monitoring the Japanese, that should be enough. But Cho Rip thinks Dae Ju will not use them easily. Jin Gi says the number of the Japanese in the market has recently increased. Sa Mo asks Dong Soo if he has a plan, Dong Soo explains (we don’t get to hear what it is).
In the palace, the Queen intentionally drinks something to fall sick. The King visits her, he asks the doctor. The doctor tells him with trembling voice that it’s the same like last time, she was poisoned by the balloon flower.
The Japanese are marching through the market. Dong Soo tells his group to split up, Cho Rip goes with Jang Mi’s daughter, and Dong Soo with Jin Ju.
In is lying on the street side, a kid walks by and calls him, the kid gives him his sweet. He smiles and takes it. He looks at the kid and asks where he lives. The kid points to the village and walks on. He says farewell to the kid, because today he and Dae Ju will die together.
Cho Rip and Jang Mi’s daughter follow the Japanese to a house, the officials who are with Dae Ju’s plot show up. Cho Rip sees their faces, he rushes out.
Gu Hyang also sees them too, she reports to Yeo Un. He asks if the Japanese has arrived, “There’s no way to turn back, no way to retreat. ” His man informs him that Dae Ju is looking for him.
Dong Soo and Jin Ju is looking around a place where they think is the gunpowder’s storage. The smell is there but there’s no trace of the substance. In shows up and tells them where it is hidden. He tells them not to worry, he will not try to harm them again. In says, “Baek Dong Soo, the meteor…the metor is the beginning.”
Dong Soo asks what he means. In thinks back when he was tortured at Dae Ju’s house, he overheard Dae Ju talking to Kenzo. But other than that, he doesn’t know, “From now on, everything is up to you.”
In carries one box of the gunpowder out with him. Dong Soo still couldn’t understand the clue, “Meteor?”
In arrives at Dae Ju’s house, he says, “Hong Dae Ju, stop the dirty work, let’s go to hell together.” A bunch of beggars run to the gate, the guards have to rush to them leaving the other gate empty, In sneaks into the house.
Inside the house, Dae Ju is saying, that before the uprising, there are certainly people they have to get rid of, Seo Yu Dae and also…..Baek Dong Soo.
Dae Ju asks his lackey if he had visited the police bureau. He says yes, they’ve found enough evidences to make them appear as thieves. Dae Ju says that village is like their hometown. If we slander that they are a group of thieves, Baek Dong Soo won’t just stand still. He orders, “Tell them, if they resist, kill them.” He turns to Kenzo and tells him to go with them and bring good result. He tells his son to go call the Sky Lord.
In overhears them from outside, he says, “The village?”, he thinks of that kid.
Yeo Un comes in, the son tells his father that everything is properly prepared. Dae Ju says, today at haesi (9pm-11pm), the uprising will start from the sky.
He turns to Yeo Un, “This is the revolution that will change Joseon’s history. Sky Lord, by no mean should you forget my orders.” Yeo Un quietly nods.
Dae Ju’s lackey and lots of soldiers are heading to the village, Hong Do sees them.
Dong Soo says if they make use of the army generals and the Japanese, it won’t just to threaten the Prince. Sa Mo says Dae Ju is showing his true colors, it’s a rebellion against the King and a bloodthirsty conspiracy. He asks if Jin Gi and Jin Ju went up Bugak mountain. Dong Soo says the treason this time will begin with the meteor.
Hong Do calls out and joins them, he says the soldiers, that stated to wipe out thieves in the village, have left. Sa Mo is angry, thieves live as commoners, what kind of reason this is, he tells Cho Rip to go report the situation and discuss a countermeasure with Yu Dae, and Dong Soo to come with him.
Jin Gi and Jin Ju run up the mountain. They see men are preparing to fly kites, they kick them all out.
Dae Ju’s lackey are shouting the arrest, some dust is bothering him. In, with a torch in his hand, walks to them saying they all must die with the sprinkles of gunpowder on their bodies. The men get scared. In shouts aloud for everybody in the area to run, and it appears that the place is deserted.
While In is screaming crazily, Kenzo grabs him, the torch falls to the ground, and plunges a sword into In’s body. Then he walks away. In is seriously wounded, he reaches for the torch. Kenzo and the lackey turn and see him, their eyes widen.
In picks up a box of gunpowder and lits it with the torch. Kenzo shouts for his men to run. In throws the box in the air, and it explodes. Bodies lie around, In sits there saying the sparks is really beautiful, he closes his eyes.
Cho Rip runs fast to deliver the news, he runs into Yeo Un and Dae Ju’s men. Yeo Un says to him, “Don’t hate me.” He takes out his knife and moves forwards.
At the exploded site, In sits there dying. The kid cries for him loudly, he reaches out to touch his cheek telling him to stop crying. The kid’s mom comes and takes him away, Dong Soo and Sa Mo arrive. In sees Dong Soo, he smiles.
“You are here. Baek Dong Soo, your sword has saved everyone. You have changed a devil like me. You are really a true Hwalingeom (the principle of a sword that saves lives rather than takes lives). You are a hundred times, thousand times stronger than Sword Saint. Thank you. Thank you for letting someone like me do the good deed for once.”
In takes Dong Soo’s hand and pulls him down to him.
“Tonight, there’s a filthy conspiracy. Go on, go stop them. That’s enough for this filthy life.” His body jerks upwards and he passes away eyes opened.
Dong Soo feels sad for him, he reaches out to close his eyes. Kenzo walks to them. Dong Soo asks if this is his doing.
Kenzo says he’s jealous of people like him who has a clear purpose. He wonders if Dong Soo knows that purpose is based on your strength. If you do not have strength, you will not even dare to state your purpose.
Dong Soo, “You are wrong. It’s not strength that makes purpose. It’s purpose that gives a person strength.”
Kenzo, “I’m very curious, the situation has already gone this far, can you change that?”
Up on the mountain, men are flying kites. A man shouts, “Cut the strings! “
A torch is used to cut the string of each kite. They all surge into the sky and burned, creating the meteor-like effect. A man cries out, “Tonight, it’s Joseon’s revolution!”
Jin Gi and Jin Ju see the sky lighten up by those kites. They stop short, what they found earlier was just the trick, they start running towards the kites.
Yeo Un thrusts his knife into Cho Rip’s body.
Cho Rip is surprised, “Un, how can you…” Yeo Un doesn’t say anything. Cho Rip looks up and sees, “Meteors….”
Sa Mo calls Dong Soo. They see meteors in the sky. Dong Soo is worried.
