“Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo” is just four episodes away from its finale on Nov. 1. While the period drama continues to suffer from low rating, with the latest at 5.8 percent, its popularity remains high among overseas fans.

Latest spoilers for episode 17, to be aired on Monday, Oct. 24, hint at the rise of a new king in the Goryeo dynasty and also the future of Wang So (Lee Joon Gi), Hae Soo (IU), Wang Wook (Kang Ha Neul) and Wang Jung (Ji Soo). In the episode 17 preview, former Third Prince Wang Yo and now King Jungjong (Hong Jong Hyun) is seen lashing out at Hae Soo and blaming her for everything.

His mother’s advice is for Wang Yo to give up certain things if he wants to own the palace, specifically by abdicating the throne to Wang Jung. This though angered the King more and made him ask his mother to leave the palace. The succeeding shots show the King lying on the floor, raising the question if he is only unconscious or dead.

Tragic Ending For Period Drama

It can be recalled that episode 16 showcased a tragic scene involving 10th Prince Wang Eun (EXO’s Baekhyun) and Park Soon Duk (Z.Hera). The scene had the two actors laying down on the sand for several hours that Baekhyun ate so much sand, Z.Hera revealed. “He felt like he was kissing the sand. But [even though it was difficult] it was fun,” she added.

While for Z.Hera, acting dead involved not even having a single eye movement which was hard for her; she took out all her energy that earned her the admiration of the drama’s director. On the other hand, Baekhyun simply slept through the death scene of "Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo."

The challenging scenes notwithstanding, the young actor said he would miss acting with the rest of the cast -- especially H.Zera with whom he has a cute chemistry on the set – because his character just got killed. The actor-singer acknowledges the things the senior actors taught him and shared that the past few months were a very happy time for him, Soompi reported.
