We discuss predictions for the Netflix K-Drama series Under the Queen’s Umbrella season 1, episodes 5 and 6, and detail the release date and where to watch online.
In Under the Queen’s Umbrella season 1, episode 4, a heightened focus was put on the health of the Crown Prince (played by Bae In-hyuk). As such, the whole chapter was interwoven around checks on his condition, in addition to the herb-based prescription Grand Prince Seongnam (played by Moon Sang-min) managed to get from outside the palace. Ultimately, this alternative medicine remedy seemed to work, with the heir to the throne managing to go several days without a bout of unconsciousness. Until it all went wrong that is, and the end of this Sunday’s episode saw the Crown Prince coughing up blood at Sigangwon before collapsing into the Queen’s (played by Kim Hye-soo) worried arms. With the King (and his men) onlookers to the situation, it’s obvious that the drama in regard to the Crown Prince will only pick up from here.
Elsewhere, Prince Bogeom managed to pass the cohort selection tests. This meant Prince Uiseong missed out, despite the efforts put in from Consort Hwang and Won-hyung to ensure the pampered man got in. However, judging from the words of Queen Dowager Cho, there may just be bigger, far more impactful plans on the horizon for Uiseong.
For a quick refresher on the rest of the palace ongoings, look no further:
- Grand Prince Gyeseong’s secret chamber was burnt down by his mother. Yet she did this to protect him, and later allowed for her son to get a picture of himself in women’s clothes so he can always see his true self without needing to reveal his secret publicly.
- Queen Dowager Cho has continuously tried to clue the King in on the Crown Prince’s condition, though she had been too subtle.
- Grand Prince Seongnam has found himself indebted to a scheming woman he met outside the palace.
- Court Lady Shin has committed her loyalty to the Queen.
