Baek Seung-hyeon in Secret Door
Secret Door tells the story of Prince Sado and his conflicts with his father. The story is that Yi-sun is a “different” prince. Although a king’s son, deep in his heart, he is a humble figure. Instead of politics, Yi-sun is more interested in the world of art. Instead of living in the palace, Yi-sun has learned a lot from the lives of his people.
From there, he saw a lot of the outside world. Saechek (trans: borrowing books circulating among the people) is considered illegal, but to Yi-sun, books are the people’s right. He believes the common people deserve to be equated with the educated. Injustice is a nightmare for the little people, and it makes Yi-sun want to change the situation to be more pro-people.
This is what the King opposes. In the first half of the drama, the maenge or secret document is the cause of conflict and murder. Even the court artist who is a good friend of the prince is considered a traitor and murdered. Whatever is behind the documents is a big secret that the prince wants to reveal. As for the king and the Old Learning Faction, all are fighting over the document. If the secret is exposed, the king is in a position of danger.
The next half of the story is the story 3 years later which is a continuation of the prince’s efforts to bring change. One by one, changes in the defense of the people are considered to be detrimental to the position of the kingdom. Often, differences in thoughts sharpen and Yi-sun is considered a rebel. One by one, lives are taken easily. The world of politics is cruel.
