In tvN's 'Captivating the King', Jo Jung-seok's transparent feelings for Shin Se-kyung were fully revealed, making viewers' hearts pound without mercy.

Episode 7 of tvN's 'Captivating the King', which aired on the 9th, saw Lee In (played by Jo Jung-seok) and Kang Hee-soo (played by Shin Se-kyung) keep their promise to meet again three years ago when a drizzle fell, and Lee In confessed to Kang Hee-soo that he He confessed his feelings transparently.

Lee In, who witnessed the hug between Kang Hee-soo and Kim Myeong-ha (played by Lee Shin-young), was deeply distressed, and Kim Myeong-ha blamed the hug on her and asked for forgiveness for her sins, and moved on safely. In particular, Lee In showed a cool side in front of Kim Myeong-ha, but he showed cute jealousy towards Kang Hee-soo, making her laugh. Kang Hee-soo repeatedly said, “I have nothing to do with Kim Myeong-ha,” but Lee In couldn’t hide his jealousy, saying, “That’s a lie.” He said, “No one does that when we have no relationship.”

When Kang Hee-soo (played by Yang Gyeong-won) approached Yoo Hyeon-bo (played by Yang Kyung-won) to recruit him, Kang Hee-soo showed his charisma by firmly refusing, saying, “The only person who can tell me to come or go is His Majesty the Lord.” Yoo Hyeon-bo was angry at Kang Hee-soo's sharp rejection and went out to find Kang Hee-soo himself. In the end, he realized that Kang Hee-soo was a baduk player who was thought to be dead three years ago and the pillar of Hong Jang (played by Han Dong-hee), and he confessed this to Lee In, heightening the tension. Nevertheless, Lee In did not waver and said, “Kang Mong-woo is not wearing a goblin mask, so there is no way you would recognize him,” and revealed that he already knew his identity, embarrassing Yoo Hyeon-bo.

Lee In received a request from Prince Munseong (played by Choi Ye-chan) that he wanted to accompany him to the tomb, and announced that Prince Munseong and Kang Hee-su would join him on the way to the tomb, causing opposition from his subjects. Oh Wook-hwan (played by Eom Hyo-seop) whispered that Lee In had put up a large army to take away Kang Hee-soo, the 'boss heart'. Park Jong-hwan (played by Lee Gyu-hoe), who already knew Kang Hee-soo's identity through Yoo Hyeon-bo, created tension by making an expression as if he was amused by the unfolding situation. On the first night of the royal tomb, Kang Hee-su, who visited the sword training ground with Prince Munseong, was swept up in the atmosphere and became a swordsman opponent of a soldier. Kang Hee-soo, who learned basic sword fighting from Chu Dal-ha (played by Na Hyun-woo), won by nimbly overpowering the soldiers, but the soldiers challenged Kang Hee-soo and prevented him from escaping. After all, it was Yoo Hyeon-bo's trap to hurt Kang Hee-soo. In the end, Kang Hee-soo hit his back against a wooden pillar and fell due to the attack of a soldier running towards him, and at the moment of imminent action, Lee In blocked the soldier, amplifying the tension. Lee In surprised everyone by replacing Kang Hee-soo with his own swordsman and scolding a soldier. Lee In then revealed his special feelings for Kang Hee-soo by issuing a cold warning, saying, “Anyone who belittles or carelessly injures a colleague will be considered to have violated military orders and will be severely punished.”

Kang Hee-soo did not know what to do when Lee In gave her a worried look, but when she was in danger of being discovered as a woman, she tried to escape the situation by refusing treatment, saying, “It was a cut caused by a sword that Najol wielded three years ago.” However, when Lee In, who noticed Kang Hee-soo's scars, pushed for treatment, Kang Hee-soo eventually made a promise to the doctor Nam Nam-gyu (played by Han Jeong-ho) that she would take responsibility and received medicine to avoid the situation.

In the early morning after the Kisin Ceremony, Lee In, who was lost in thought while looking at the sky, felt his heart pounding as a sudden rain fell. Min Sang-hyo (played by Kim Seo-ha) was worried about Lee In's madness that would soon begin. The reason is that Lee In showed madness every time he went to the royal tomb, and the sign of his madness was a dream. At that moment, Kang Hee-soo also expressed his joy by stretching his hands high in the sky, as if measuring the amount of longing he had after a long dream. Three years ago, when Lee In gave me the nickname ‘Mongwoo’, I remembered the promise, “Let’s meet again on the day when the moon falls.” Kang Hee-soo, who was remembering her past promise with Lee In while receiving a dream, began to feel strange tremors when she saw Lee In approaching her in front of her.

At the same time, Kang Hee-soo said, "I'm going to have a hard time," and when Lee In approached her, she suddenly pushed Lee In away, fearing that he would be discovered to be a woman. Lee In misunderstands that Kang Hee Soo still harbors hatred from the past Sejak incident and asks Kang Hee Soo what she thinks of him with disappointed eyes, saying, “You hate me.” Lee In was unable to hide his feelings when Kang Hee-soo responded, “No,” by saying, “Then is that okay?” When Kang Hee-soo refused to answer and avoided his gaze, he burst out with his inner feelings that he had not been able to express until now, saying, “I am good. “I like you, Mongwoo,” he confessed.
