Mr. Queen Character Chart

How we do this: This live recap will be in two parts and we segment each post around every 10 minutes. Sometimes sooner, sometimes later depending on the scene. There will be typos which we have fantasies of fixing once the episode finishes airing. Also, if there is a preview then we will try and translate it. Look for that at the bottom or on a separate post!




The King sits with the Queen’s father. He asks if he wants to lay down. The King says no, just resting is enough. Though he doesn’t look good.

Abonim – I heard that you lost all your memories in Hanyang (old name for Seoul)

King – I was young. I left Hanyang for a not so good reason. I don’t have too much memory left.

Abonim – That is good. What I mean is that it is better to forget bad memories.

King – I agree.


The Queen has her hand over her nose and thinks that her sense of smell has opened a pandoras box.

HJ – You look normal, not as what I heard. I was thinking maybe….

Q – Dn’t worry, I did not tell anything to the King.

HJ – *looks at her*

Q – That is why you came all the way here, because you worry about it.

HJ – You should have a good reason to call the King here.

Q – I really wanted to have a good relationship with you. Roots or hormones or the last line of defense. As long as I wanted you, I was myself even though I was in this body. But now I remember your real self.

HJ – The real me?

Q – You are fake Kim So Yong.

HJ – Fake?

Q – My memory is back.

HJ – Your memory is not back, yourself is back.

Q – Since you were the center of my hormones so you tell the King. He will be hurt if he hears it from someone else.

HJ – Are you threatening me? I know what you want from me.

Hong Yeon comes in with a snack. Hwa Jin almost bowls her over when she leaves. The Queen says that Hwa Jin is holding on to that twisted life, that is why the person herself is twisted.

Hwa Jin walks angrily outside and sees the King walking up. She excuses her maid to talk to him.

HJ – Are you okay?

K – I am sorry to make you worry.

HJ – It is only you and me, you are too formal

K – Ah.

HJ – The Queen is recovered so go back with me.

K – No. I am looking for something here.

HJ – You are looking for something? What?

The father comes up and tells them that he should not treat his guests like this. I have prepared a nice place so come. Hwa Jin tells him she has to go back, she will wait int he palace. The King tells her okay and leaves with his father in law.

But he tuns around and looks at Hwa Jin walking off.


In the city, a mystery man jumps around and hides next to a wall.

Cut to the King looking at the trees from a pavilion in the Queens house. The Queen is sitting at her own table and is looking at him while thinking.

Q – (The grandfather was accused of a coup and jailed and executed. The father died with disease he got from being in jail. His grandmother and aunt were killed because they were baptized. The step brother was executed with a coup. It’s not like “Emergency escape #1”. How come his family just dies.)

The King looks at her.

K – Why are you looking at me like that?

Q – What?

K – You are looking at me like you are looking at a poor street dog

Q – (Don’t smile, you look pitiful already.) *So Yong’s voice and emotions*

Q – Hey, what do you want from me? Why are you following me around!

K – What I want from you…

He thinks about telling the prince that he will execute the Queen if she is their enemy.

K – I hope you are not my enemy. You do not have to be on my side, just don’t be my enemy.

Q – you can read people. I am not so good as an ally but I am super scary as an enemy. I bite until the end.

Hong Yeon comes up and tells them that Byong In has come. They look at the entrance and see Byong In coming in with all his policemen. The Queen mutters that they ave so many guests like they are some famous restaurant.

K – What happened?

BI – The King and Queen are here so this place is like the palace. We will guard you from now on Queen.

K – I brought the royal guards so don’t worry and go back.

BI – The royal guards guard the King, the police guard the Queen.

K – Are you wasting human resources?

BI – Then why don’t you go home?

K – You are guarding the wrong way. If you look outside then that is guarding. You are looking this way so it is surveillancing.

They have their stare down. The King smirks then pours a tea.

K – My fate is to be always surrounded by the Kim family.

He chuckles. The Queen looks a bit sad.

Then the mystery man comes out of nowhere and runs to the pavillion. He dodges all the police and guards. But when he gets to the pavillion the King quickly jumps into a spin kick and knocks him out.

The Queen is suddenly taken aback and gazes longingly at the King. Music plays.

The King asks if she is okay. She is socked. Byong In comes up and checks the man. It is Hwan. Byong In asks why he is there? Hwan wakes up and tells them not to kill him.

K – Hwan? Why did he try to attack the Queen?

Q – Get out of my body you woman! Get out!

K – Queen?

Hwan looks at the Queen but it looks like he might be looking at the maid? The Queen hides her face.


But he blasts past her and goes to Hong Yeon.

Q – the country….?

Everyone looks at Hwan as he kneels in front of Hong Yeon. Yeon does not know what to do. The Queen asks if he does not recognize her because she put a dot on her face?

The King tells Byong In that his police were supposed to protect the Queen but it looks like they are not up for it. Byong In tells him that he heard there are a lot of warehouse thieves so they need greater security. Do you have your own pocket money?

Q – (well, he is the King after all).

K – I will see the end with you.

BI – That is what I wish.

They stare at each other again. 

Elsewhere, Yeon took Hwan away to help heal his face. She holds an egg to it. He says he is great at martial arts which is why he could spin away from his kick, I just wanted you care. I also have another request. Can you do hoo hoo.

She looks at his purple face. 

He thinks she blew on his face and says her breath smells so good. Then says he has to confirm these emotions.

He quickly kisses her, but it is actually a man sitting there. So he kisses a man on the cheek. He spits the kiss away. Hwan asks him why he is here? The man says he wanted to apologize for not recognizing him and smiles painfully. Then tells him his smile is prettier than his breath. He smiles again.



The King and Byong In are still on the pavilion with the Queen. It is dark and they are tossing drinks back and forth to each other to drink. The Queen watches them as they cock fight with alcohol.

The men drink shot after shot. Hong Yeon brings some more alcohol and asks if they already drank this much.

Q – The time has come. Gae Nook Shi.

HY – Gae Nook Shi?

Q – The Time of Dogs and Wolves. It is the magic hour where normal people during the day become dogs and wolves.

The men keep drinking as western wild west music plays.

K – *drunk* As a man, I will ask you one question. Do you have emotions that you should not have to the Queen? Otherwise, why are you so eager to attack me?

BI – *drunk* Sometimes there are guys that are not good guys. He doesn’t give love but the other person gives him love.

K – *chuckles* So you are saying that I am a no good guy that only wants to posses?

BI – *drunk* You have the best woman next to you and you still don’t know. You are a good for nothing guy.

Q – What are they talking about. For me, both of you are a no.

K – No, it shouldn’t be. Look at me directly. YoUuUuU

Byong In drinks but it barely goes into his mouth. He passes out.

The King tells him that drinking is the virtue of men. I have won. Then he passes out.


Daebi tells her court lady that she needs to be worth her money.

Meanwhile, Hwa Jin is at the lake. She thinks about the Queen jumping in. Daebi shows up and tells her that she wanted to keep distance from her to not harm her. Hwa Jin tells her no to talk like that. Daebi gives her a present. It is the hairpiece with a magical bird on it.

HJ – This is…!

DB – You are the one that fits next to the King. You deserve to be Queen. 

HJ – *picks it up*

DB – What were you watching?

HJ – The reflection on the lake.

DB – There are a lot of scary rumors in the palace. Like with ghosts. One of them is that on a full moon like today, do not let your reflection show on the lake. The rumor says, when you leave the reflection will move by itself.

HJ – I feel like I live all my life trapped in the lake. Now it is time to get out.

She grips the magical bird accessory.

Elsewhere, one of the maid spies walks around and finds Hwa Jin’s accessory that she gave to her servant when the servant left home. She smiles.


The King wakes up after being drunk and passing out. He looks off determinedly. 

Outside, guards are walking around. The King sneaks around them. 

In the Queens room, the Queen wakes up. She looks around quickly for something then sighs.


Hwa Jin tells Daebi that she has a secret. Something she has never told anyone. It is only between her and the Queen.

VO – A werewolf turns into a wolf under the full moon. But we know that the full moon is only an excuse to release the wolf hiding in us.

A door opens and the King sneaks into a room. he peaks around a corner. the music playing is intense. He keeps sneaking around.

Soemone comes out on the opposite end. It looks like a thief?

Meanwhile, the Queen looks at her chamber bot that she calls a port-a-potty.

In the hallway, the King has a stare down with this thief who has a mask on. It might be the man with the facial scar.

The Queen gets up drunkenly and sees two men knife fighting through her door. This appears to sober her up.

The King continues fighting the man outside. The Queen watches and thinks this isa  tango. Tango music starts to play and she starts to sing and shimmy to the music.

Her father is sleeping though with his eyes open.

Outside, Byong In tells them to take him to the Queens bedroom. He will guard her himself.

The fight continues just outside the Queens bedroom. The Queen is having a good time looking at it. But then the door is cut with a knife which really sobers her up.

The King tries to remove the mans mask, but then the Queen comes out holding the chamber pot high above her head. They both look at her.

K – Queen?

Q – My poor King….in the name of JUSTICE!

She slams the chamber pot on the man, but the man spins out of the way so she hits he King instead. The man runs away. The King is all dizzy on the floor. The Queen mentions her accuracy went away with her nauseousness.

Outside, Byong In yells, this way! 

Inside, The Queen asks the King why he was standing there. But he heard Byong In yells outside so he grabs the Queen and tells her, from today, I wont’ do No Touchy and kisses her!

Byong In bursts in and sees them kissing.

His entire world looks like it crumbled.

Fade Out


I was wondering how they would get the love part of this love story going considering a man is trapped in a woman’s body. But I have to say that I like how it is working out. It appears that So Yong is still somewhere in her body and Byong is in there too? We have had some pretty good comments talking about Byong perhaps being So Yong’s reincarnation in the 21 st century, so he technically is So Yong and is remembering his past life?

I love that theory. Though I don’t think he is that far gone into his past life yet and expect the Queen to slap the King at the beginning of the next episode. One of my favorite parts of this episode is when the King did a spinning kick to knock out Hwan and the Queen completely swooned, though it was a caught off guard swoon. Almost as if Bong-hwan is realizing how powerful female emotions are for the man they love, lol. I love it.

    Hello everyone!! Thanks for the summaries and the comments, help to follow the drama more thoroughly …
    In the last chapter we saw it seemed to me that they hinted that there was a change between the queen and the concubine in the past and that the queen had discovered it the night she jumped into the lake … I didn’t remember when I woke up but now that Some memories are coming back not only from the recent past but from the distant past, he realized it and let the concubine know, when he told her that he had not betrayed her and had not told the king.
    What do you think of my thought? please let me know.
    greetings to all !!!

      I love this Monica. So perhaps the Queen did discover something that night she was crying and her cousin kissed her which led her to jumping into the lake? Perhap she found out why the King does not like her so fervently because of what he thinks happened in the well?

      • Monica
        January 5, 2021 / 7:13 am

        Exactly!!! I thought so too … that night that she jumped into the well it was because she would have discovered who she really is and also that she did not remain silent at the well and they discovered it to the king, she felt guilty, she found herself in front of the Lake with the concubine and said something interesting, in addition the concubine also answered something that makes him have to keep shutting up the queen, finally decides to commit suicide ….. All this I’ve been interpreting and seeing

          I love your thoughts! I can’t wait to see what happens in the next episode. I am really wondering how these two people are going to coexist and if it really is going to take more of a reincarnation of souls that are now merging plotline.

          • Monica
            January 6, 2021 / 3:15 pm

            There are two themes, one is the secret that the queen and the concubine have kept that involves the king when he was a child and the well. And another issue here is how the soul of the chef and the queen will coexist in the same body because it is already happening that the feelings of the queen and the memories appear …….. because I want to think that there will be romance between the queen and king but I don’t know how it will be.
