Yun-ok, from ‘Alchemy of Souls,’ is Master Heo’s granddaughter. The first time she saw Jang Uk, she felt something for him. She portrays Hong Seo-hee. Yun-character o’s seemed minor in the novel’s introduction. She played a supporting role and had feelings for Jang Uk. She was regarded as his ideal bride, but he ultimately tied the knot with Mu-deck. She had a minor role in the sequel, too. She remained a bystander.
Who Is Heo Yun-Ok? The Unrequited Love Of Yun-Ok
Yun-ok relocates from Wol Fortress to Daeho to serve in the royal infirmary. She is Master Heo Yeom of Sejukwom’s granddaughter. She and her trusty friend Sun-i are heading to the inn, but on the way, she becomes convinced that Jang Uk is following them. At the inn, he confronts her after learning that Sun-mi has followed them.
They claim Jang Uk is following them, but he says he is not. He tells her he isn’t attracted to her physical appearance and hence has no motive to stalk her. Yun-ok seemed confused and perhaps irritated by this.
An evil soul shifter attacks her as she changes clothes in her room. Just in time, Jang Uk comes to her rescue, and she learns he’s been shadowing the soul changer the whole time.
When her grandfather brings Jang Uk to her, he is so drunk that she recognizes him immediately. During the night, Master Heo tells her that Jang Uk is a genius and leaves her to care for him. It’s made apparent that she has feelings for him.
She makes several attempts to approach him but is always repelled. Jang Uk’s maid Kim is convinced she is the one for him, and even Mu-deck is envious.
When alone, she tries to tell Jang Uk how she feels, but he brushes her off. Since he mistook her for Mu-desk, he tells her he is okay with her taking care of him. She sees Jang Uk and Mu-deok from a distance after he decides to marry Mu-deok and concludes that he never cared about her.
Do We See Yun-Ok Moving On?
Yun-ok is occasionally portrayed as more than just a girl in love with Jang Uk. When a barrier prevents them from leaving Jeongjingak, she swiftly intervenes to save Yul and So-i from a soul shifter. She has been instrumental in Yul’s recovery several times thanks to her care. After the blood parasite has been removed from Yul’s central nervous system, she continues to look after him.
More precisely, she does not return to the Wol Fortress since she is responsible for the upkeep of the body that houses the queen’s spirit. Jang Uk never expresses gratitude, but she keeps bringing him sleeping pills whenever the wraiths prevent him from resting. Her maid Kim and her master, Heo, persuade her to break up with Jang Uk.
Maidservant Kim informs Yun-ok that she is no longer responsible for Jang Uk’s needs once he marries Bu-Yeon. When Bu-yeon expresses her desire to be loved by Jang Uk, Yun-ok takes it upon herself to dissuade her. She instructs her to use Naksu’s blue jade to contact Jang Uk, which infuriates him.
However, she sees Jang Uk and Bu-Yeon become romantically involved. When she learns that Bu-yeon is Naksu, she goes against Master Heo’s counsel and tries to force Bu-yeon to recall her true identity to split them up permanently. To demonstrate Bu-yeon the soul-shifting marks on her body, she summons her to the Dark Forest and throws a medication at her, which is typically used to disclose invisible effects on corpses.
She tries to continue, but Yul stops her by telling her that Naksu’s soul will go soon, to which she responds that she cannot allow Naksu hurt Jang Uk again. Nonetheless, it keeps Bu-yeon apart from Jang Uk for the time being.
Master Heo considers marrying Jang Uk to Go Won a year after she weds Naksu, but he is shocked to learn that she is already in a relationship. Master Heo knows that her admirer was once one of her patients and that after he recovered, he continued to send her flowers daily. Ultimately, she breaks up with Jang Uk.
