A General, a Scholar and an Eunuch (超時空男臣): Episode 6 Recap

During the late reign of the Wanli Emperor of the Ming Dynasty, the crown prince had frequent conflicts with the eunuch faction, led by Jeung Sing. Jeung secretly sends the Eastern Depot officials after the crown princess. Under the protection of general Yun Sung Wun, scholar Jo Gwong Dau, and eunuch Lee Jeun Jung, the crown princess flees to an isolated, hazy forest. Amidst the chaos, the three of them and the crown princess get lost. When they emerge from the fog, they discover that they have traveled 400 years and arrived in the 21st century.


The car stops and Sandy raises down her side of the window to speak with Fong Wai Ji. Fong Wai Ji explains that she has a few friends that wants to meet with Sandy and if she’s busy, then she could just give them a call. She passes on Daai Gwan’s phone number and Sandy agrees to give him a call.

Once they hit the streets, Sandy throws the piece of paper away. Then she asks her assistant to read what people are saying about her on the internet. It’s all bad things – calling her a gold digger. Pissed off, she demands they stop the car and go back to find the piece of paper with the number on it.

Wai Kei runs into the three brothers at the park when they receive a video call from Sandy. She tells the three of them to go to a certain place to do something for her.

They arrive and receive another call from Sandy. There is a spy from their time that has also traveled to the future and is secretly buying weapons of the future to bring back to their time to overthrow the emperor. She tells them to find the gang member named Mountain Leopard who the spy is meeting with.

The three accept and try to draw out Mountain Leopard by destroying his car. A whole bunch of other gang members come out and they get into a fight. Mountain Leopard finally comes out and it turns out to be the man Daai Gwan saved. Mountain Leopard finds out the three work for the Crown Prince (a gang) and they try to negotiate some land (streets) in a brief peace talk. Since neither side is willing to yield, Mountain Leopard says war is inevitable.

At that moment the police arrive and break things up. Mountain Leopard manages to talk the police away. Then he tells the three brothers, he admires their loyalty and if they ever decide to stop working for the crown prince then they’re welcomed to find him.

Since the show is over, Sandy wants to leave before the other three realize she’s nearby. Too late though. They discover her and Sandy loses it. She tells them to get into the car and they drive to the pier where she clears the air between them.

Yat Bo explains that they got separated in the misty forest and got sent here so why is she pretending not to know them. Sandy tells them once and for all that they’ve got the wrong person. She’s not their princess consort.

That night, the three brothers return to their flat and ask Wai Kei to look up Sandy on the internet. Everything she told them about her history is true. They’re starting to realize that maybe they’ve made a mistake.

Wai Kei wants to know what’s going on but they can’t tell her. She manages to extract a promise from them to help cook the Golden Feast tomorrow before she leaves though.

Since they were mistaken, Daai Gwan and Yat Bo decide to head back to Foshan to wait for the princess consort there. Siu Dung brings up the feast. Even though they promised Wai Kei, finding the princess consort is their top priority. Besides, it was Fong Wai Ji who lied to them first. They are not obligated to stay.

Wai Kei returns home and tells Fong Wai Ji that the three brothers promised to cook the Golden Feast tomorrow. Then she brings up the fact that the three brothers are a little strange. Their mannerisms and speech makes it seems like they’re filming an ancient times drama. This reminds Fong Wai Ji about something and she asks her sister to help her search up the name Yun Sung Wun and look up his picture.

The next morning Fong Wai Ji finds out the three brothers left, leaving behind a note apologizing. She calls Daai Gwan’s cell phone and leaves some messages yelling at them.

The three brothers are at the station. They listen to the first message and guess that the second one must be from Fong Wai Ji too. Despite her message, they have still decided to leave. Yat Bo then tells Daai Gwan and Siu Dung to go ahead first; he needs to do something before going.

Yat Bo then takes out a pink handkerchief. He remembers when they were escorting the princess consort, she gave that to him to wrap up his wound.

Sandy is on her way to her next schedule when she sees Yat Bo standing at the celebrities drop off area. She tries to hide as she doesn’t want to deal with these crazies anymore. They try to take another route but Ivan arrives and cuts them off. He’s demanding to know if Sandy’s been avoiding him and if the rumors of her having a non-celebrity boyfriend that’s not him is true. She says it is but Ivan doesn’t believe her.

At that moment, Yat Bo is running towards them. Sandy uses him and pretends that he’s her boyfriend and introduces him to Ivan. After he gives her the handkerchief, she kisses him to thank him. While Ivan is shocked, Sandy ushers Yat Bo into the car and they drive off.

Inside, she apologizes for using him. Yat Bo doesn’t mind and tells her that he and his brothers are leaving. Sandy immediately jumps on it and tells her driver to take them to the train station to drop Yat Bo off.

Back at the restaurant, Fong Wai Ji announces that they will be returning the check and canceling the booking. They will also be closing down Fung Ming Geoi. The mood is somber until they hear someone in the kitchen.

Chef Lau is cooking and manages to make one of the dishes of the Golden Feast perfectly. Everyone is in awe and they think Chef Lau has recovered.

Yat Bo arrives at the train station. Daai Gwan and Siu Dung are reluctant to leave. They play the second message Fong Wai Ji left them for Yat Bo. In it, she’s practically begging for them to come back and save Fung Ming Geoi. Conflicted, Yat Bo leaves the decision to leave or stay to Daai Gwan.
