In the drama, as Jeongjo dies, he sheds tears to Ui-bin, who never told himself that he loves him, saying, “Love me, please love me.” In , Jeongjo proposes to Ui-bin after his three-year-old son and Yeongjo’s three-year mourning, but both times he is rejected. Then, her other concubine, Hwabin Yun, achieves her love through a third courtship that tries to stop her from tormenting her.
In the Joseon Dynasty, was it possible for the royal court lady to reject the courtship of the three sons or the king, and even the king to accept it? This incident, which even historians say is “unprecedented”, is recorded in ‘Yesterday’s Tomb Cover Name’ written by Jeongjo himself after Uibin closed his eyes. The gravestone is the name and history of the deceased, and the name of the grave is the engraving of a tribute to the deceased on the tombstone. The front of this monument is written by Park Myung-won, and the back is by Seo Yong-bo. According to the explanation of the Digital Jangseogak at the Korean Studies Research Institute, “it was not common in Joseon to build or write a stele for a spouse” and, in particular, “It was similar to the fact that the king wrote the words and those who were famous for their writings were similar. It is difficult to find an example.” In addition to this article, King Jeongjo himself wrote several ceremonies and congratulatory texts, including ‘Yesterday’s Vinci Festival Gate’, ‘Yesterday’s Bin 3 Years’ Cabinet Festival Celebration Gate’, and ‘Yesterday Bin 3 Years Scent Festival Celebration Gate’, to commemorate the death of Ui-bin. He expressed his heartfelt love while grieving.
