The King’s Affection Episode 17 Recap
The King’s Affection Episode 17 sees Commander Jung saving the lives of Hwi and Ji Un when assassins attacked them on their way back to the palace after visiting Officer Yoon’s grave. Ji Un’s father is aware of the truth that the King is a woman, but his primary concern is his son’s safety.
On the other hand, Ga On continues to find out what killed the late king and who is in charge of the murder of the physician. He saw someone familiar while he was out in the marketplace.
