[Spoiler] "Deep-rooted Tree" Jang Hyuk, first person to grasp the Hangeul

2011/11/23 Source

Chae-yoon (Jang Hyuk), who was waiting for revenge on Sejong (Han Suk-kyu) was fascinated by the Hangeul which could express everything.

On the fifteenth episode of SBS drama "Deep-rooted Tree" on the 23rd, Chae-yoon kidnaps Sejong's fifth son to take revenge on him but realizes the Hangeul and opens up to Sejong.

Disappointed because Soy (Shin Se-kyung) chose Sejong, Chae-yoon sneaked away General Gwangpyeong who was kidnapped by the spies for his final revenge. Then the two placed a bet on what Sejong will choose between his son and making the Hangeul.

Chae-yoon scoffs at General Gwangpyeong's words that the Hangeul was to give power to the people. The General got angry and said, "Put me on the line and test my father the king" and Chae-yoon allowed it.

Chae-yoon didn't believe in the power of this language. He told the General, "Do you really think the people will know this language when it's completed? Only the noblemen will study it because it is their jobs to do so".

The General explained there were 28 alphabets to the Hangeul and any intelligent person could memorize it in a day. However, Chae-yoon mocked him and said, "There are various words to express an object, how is it going to express everything around us with just 28 characters?"

Soy revealed all the 28 letters. She said, "You just have to memorize this. Then you can write your name that's not in Chinese characters, the bad words you use so well, our hearts, the sound of the wind, the sound of the birds and all the sounds of everything around us".

Half in doubt, Chae-yoon memorized them in half a day and wrote down what he remember according to sound on the ground with a branch. He was surprised. He was surprised and opened his heart to Sejong at the fact that the Chosun people could learn something in half a day and be able to express words.

In the end, Chae-yoon took the General back to Sejong and knelt in front of him. He told him there was something he wanted to say and wrote his father's name in Hangeul, saying, "Please remember this name". Sejong accepted.

As things seemed to resolve around them, viewers are now curious on how Sejong and Chae-yoon will manage the plots of the spies around them.
