Scandal: Eoudong Lawsuit - 1
During the 11th year of King Seongjong.
The season when spring energy is warm and wet.
It was a rare sunny day in winter when the cold air was pushed out and the green shoots were ready to wake up. Unlike usual, the streets outside the capital city were crowded with people who heard the rumors.
Today, when the decision was made on her career.
It was also a day that caught Hanyang people’s attention.
There are disagreements every day about what she has done.
It was said that the ministry of justice would end the case that shocked the public.
The woman who was the center of the uproar stood bravely, ignoring people’s commotion. The woman wearing the shabby jacket had a pale skin and long messy hair, contrary to rumors that she was like a flower blooming.
“A terrible girl who’s always unlucky. I don’t even want to see her.”
People call her that like this.
The woman called to judge’s office showed a gentle expression as if she were not afraid of what would happen.
It can’t be seen as a woman who was brought here to interfere with customary law. Even though she acted viciously, she was very confident
“What makes Gang sang Sinner, who will be responsible for the political situation, proud and not show rude manners?”
Judge Jang Jin-won the ministry of justice raised his voice to the woman in front of him.
“I understand that I am not here to offend the judge. I have heard that my sins are discussed a lot. Please hurry and let me know the details of the verdict as soon as possible.”
Judge Jang Jin-won frowns deeply.
Her confident attitude is like a thorn in the eye.
“You still can’t repent of your sins. Okay then. I will judge Park Guma, also known as Eo Woo-dong.”
Jang Jin-won coughed lightly and continued
” Recent promiscuous fornication by women in Hanyang harms public morals. If the law is not strictly enforced, the people will feel that there is no discipline. Gyeonggukdaejeon says if you do something bad, you will be sentenced to death. Uhudong is considered clear that she committed lewd acts.”
Eo-udong looked at Judge Jang Jin-won hatefully.
“As you know, sinners commit adultery with 17 men. Do you have anything to say about your sin?”
“Whatever I say, what difference does it make? Let’s first hear the decisions of the relevant people.”
She seemed very confident even before the decision was made.
This is a place
The place that makes you feel numb when dragged in even if you don’t commit a crime? Isn’t it the bill of honor that even non-existent sins are not there are inflated
Eo-udong smiled softly. On New Year’s Eve, a face like a child tired of waiting for the start, asking for results quickly.
“Eo-udong is hanged.”
It was a decision that exceeded everyone’s expectations.
Eudong’s body trembled for a moment.
She thought it would be a long sentence at least, but it must have been more than she thought.
“Drag the condemned criminal to prison. The sentence will be executed within a few days, so be aware of the crime of perjury, Eudong.”
“May I say something?”
Judge Jang Jin-won looked at Eo-udong in loss of words.
“If my adultery is a crime, there should be an innocent victim. If the victims are plaintiffs and I’m Chuck, wouldn’t it be okay to file a complaint? I want to complain to them.”
“You must have heard something somewhere. It’s not fair to say it’s love. You came here because you were accused of guilt. You had an affair with more than seventeen men. These are not inappropriate words spoken by sinners who have messed up customs.”
The judge smiled unnaturally.
“Did the man you mentioned a few years ago have any desire to blame me?”
“Shut up. I don’t want to talk to lowly gisaeng anymore. A ruling has been made. No reversal.”
Judge Jang Jin-won winked at the soldiers who lined up.
When she raised her chin to Jang Jin-won, two guards grabbed Eo-udong’s two arms with quick steps.
Eo-udong looked at the soldiers alternately with sharp eyes. The two guards standing next to them were startled.
“What are you doing?”
Anger appeared on Jang Jin-won’s face.
“Isn’t Joseon a three-minded system? I understand that if I’m not satisfied with the verdict, I can appeal to a higher authority, and I mean it.”
“Ha ha ha ha!”
Jang Jinwo laughed so hard, then patted her down saying the girl was arrogant.
“Did you say that thinking that would work here in the Ministry of Justice?” Take him to prison!”
The two guards dragged Eo-dong’s arm. It was the scent of roses and mukhyang from Eo-dong’s armpits, and the scent of making men’s minds confused. Despite being locked up for days and days, her body odor remained. When the military guards approached the side, they were struck by the beauty of the features, as well as the beauty of the whole body.
The chief of the guard came running in front of the guards and slapped them in the face.
When Jang Jin-won’s feelings were offended, the department head lost his voice.
“Didn’t you hear me?”
Only then did the warlords realize and push the Eo-udong back.
-“I’ll go alone. Let’s go. If it’s like this, you have to hear the misunderstanding that I committed adultery in a man’s arms.”
Eo-udong, who let go of the army’s arm, grinned at judge Jang Jin-won and walked toward the prison with haughty steps.
“I just need to get there, don’t I?”
Jang Jin-won can’t control his anger.
“A desirable girl. I will tell your highness, and I will hang you tomorrow.”
He spoke to himself quietly.
“Since birth, Na Eun’s mouth has been alive like a winter solstice flower. “A girl like her is the most desirable girl, who can’t be looked around and searched around the Joseon Dynasty.”
The men gathered in the tavern and drank the tavern.
Outside the city walls, there’s already room for the execution of Eo-udong. When people hear news that makes them curious, their reactions are different.
Among the crowd of men, they regret it so much, and among the crowd of women they laugh and giggle
“No, because of Eou-dong, Hanyang is very excited today.”
“I heard it too. No, she didn’t lose a word to the judge and shot back with a bright eye. How elegant it was. The men who were watching in front admired Eo-udong.
-They said they were crazy because they missed us. I guess her beauty is amazing.”
“Oh my!! There’s something so scary about what you’re saying. They say she was not a woman to mess with.”
“If I died after hugging a woman like that, I would have no wish.”
The men said while drinking their wine.
“What was she like when she was on trial?”
The man who was sitting alone drinking a takju asked.
The steady voice attracted attention. Additionally, the small face was beautiful and clear.
Wearing fine silk clothes, he seemed to be the son of a noble family.
“You may be curious about Eo-udong. If you give me a cool glass of takju, I’ll tell you in detail.”
“Madam, please bring as much takju as you want to drink there. I’ll pay the bill.”
The table people bowed their heads.
“Oh, my Lord. You don’t have to do this.”
“That’s enough. Hurry up and talk about the Eo-udong we discussed earlier.”
The man took the takju to his mouth with his delicate white and long fingers.
The men sitting in front of him talked enthusiastically about rumors circulating on the street.
The eyes of the man who listened to them silently became blurred, then turned savage again and again.
And when he heard the story of Eo-udong, who was sentenced to death immediately, the color of his face changed to the color of the ground in an instant.
“Why would you do that, sir?”
“You must be drunk.”
The silk man stood up and disappeared from sight.
“Even the nobleman is in the house behind that bitch.”
The words coming out of his vulgar mouth made the man’s neck tickle.
Eo-udong’s behavior at the Ministry of Justice wasn’t the only thing that caused rumors.
It was the same in Banchon, where a noble man proud of his age lived together.
“There is a reason for Eo-udong. How could you say that about a woman’s body? You don’t even know how embarrassing you are.”
The women rolled their eyes at Eou-dong’s bold action.
Her evaluation of Eou-dong was as different as the sky and the earth, and the more she did, the more her story about her grew.
It was a very different night from the warm day.
In the street lit by the thin moonlight, the air was chilly.
Perhaps because Lee Gyeom drank a lot of Takju, he staggered and couldn’t control his body.
Rumors about Eou-dong were carried by the wind even far away in Dongnae. Eo Woo-dong was no longer the Park Guma he knew.
The image of a woman who was intelligent and warmed her heart through her smile seemed to disappear from nowhere.
Lee Gyeom felt empty in his heart. The sky was angry and he couldn’t stand it.
He hated Park Gu Ma, or rather, Wu Dong, for making him drag his soul to this distant Hanyang. However, he also missed her terribly
The story he heard on the street made Lee Gyeom fall into the abyss. She will die
Yes, he couldn’t believe it. His decision to buy takju at a low price and hear it from the common people was hard to believe.
Would he feel better if he secretly visited her in the middle of the night and peeked at her?
After seeing her, could he go down to Dongnae without any problem? The night was like day for him as he drove to Hanyang.
“I’m only going home with a face. I told myself, but I wasn’t sure if I could turn my back on her.”
He can’t believe she’s hanged.
“I can’t say how much it hurts.”
Lee Seung-im reached out to the sky.
Lee Seung-im, who looked at the sky, lay on the dirt floor on the street.
‘Please make me a person who doesn’t have to wait for death.
He wanted to let go of everything.
“What the hell am I supposed to do?”
A star twinkled responding to Lee Gyeom’s voice.
It was the same when he met a 12-year-old Guma after a long time.
They climbed the hill and lay down in the night sky as lovers. When they promised each other’s futures, a star twinkled. The girl who called Gyeom Daheen and the boy who called Guma Ryeo Mong made a promise while looking at the stars.
“When we reach marriage, let’s share the future together.”
The two of them looked into each other’s eyes and promised to do so.
Cold warmth filled his body, and tears flowed down Lee Gyeom’s cheeks.
“What is wrong with you, Lee Gyeom?”
Ja-wook’s pointed chin entered Lee Gyeom’s moonlight-filled eyes.
“Oh, I guess you are crying right now.”
Ja-wook looked at Lee Gyeom’s wet eyes and laughed out loud.
He was a friend and brother who never revealed his innermost thoughts. His patience prevented even the slightest groan from breaking the ice and throwing it into the valley.
“Do you also feel pressure? Because of how much you drank.”
Lee Gyeom straightened up and sat down.
“Look at my face, I’m getting close.”
“I want you to sit in front of me too.”
Lee Gyeom shook his head from side to side and placed his palms on both knees.
Ja-wook slumped in front of Lee Gyeom wanting to play fun games.
“Let me ask you a question.”
Lee grabbed Jauk’s right hand in front of him and tugged on it with both hands.
“How long have you been friends with me?”
“He is really drunk, yeah.”
“What’s wrong with you today? You’re out in Hanyang for the first time in a while and you’re falling in love with his old home?”
“I have a favor to ask of you. This is my first and last request as a friend. You can think of it as a brother’s favor.”
At Lee gyeom’s unusual attitude, he fixed his posture.
“Of course, if something needs my help, I should help. What is it?”
“I’m sure you’ve heard about it. The whole town is in an uproar.”
“So tell me what you want me to do?”
Lee Seung-im took a breath and brought it up.
“Please save Eodong, who was sentenced to prison today.”
Ja-wook was dumbfounded and could not say anything.
“Please just save Eo-udong.”
The tears that came down Lee Gyeom’s cheek were dripping at the end of his chin.
“Are you serious?”
Lee Gyeom did not say anything for a long time. His mouth froze in frustration
“You don’t know what it means to save her, do you?”
Lee Gyeom was shaking his head with his face down. It was difficult to express the true feelings of a complicated mind differently
“Please, please save Guma, no. Save Eo-udong!”
