Wanting to help his prince to get rid of Gwi, Sung Yeol goes to seek help from another vampire who had promised to be the prince's ally. Unfortunately, Sung Yeol finds his ally vampire dying from a battle with Gwi and is horrified when the vampire bites him promising "this is all I can do for you." After a night of agony, Sung Yeol wakes up to find himself transformed into a vampire.
Furious to see that Sung Yeol won't give in to his blood thirst and his refusal to become one of his minions, Gwi brings Myeong Hee, Sung Yeol's fiancee and love of his life to taunt him. Shocked to see her fiancee turned into a vampire, Myeong Hee nonetheless stuns everyone when she stabs herself mortally and begs Sung Yeol to drink her blood so he will be able to live on. Sobbing as he holds his dying love in his arms, Sung Yeol finally gives in to her pleading and drinks Myeong Hee's blood.
Jo Yang Sun, our heroine who is disguising herself as a man is fascinated when she meets Sung Yeol the first time and wonders how can a man be even prettier than a woman. At first impatient with Yang Sun, Sung Yeol is soon shaking in surprise when an accidental wound on Yang Sun reveals a blood scent that almost have him lose complete control. Yap, the classic True Love= The most tasty food.
Intrigued to see Yang Sun transforming into a girl right in front of him, Sung Yeol threatens to expose Yang Sun until she agrees to find a mysterious writer whose story is eerily similar to the story written 120 years ago by Prince Junghyun (Sung Yeol's best friend).
Pretending to be girl in Sung Yeol's bed, Yang Sun successfully avoided being arrested, but now she can't seems to stop cursing him for the ... barbaric ...sexy... heart pounding (wait, why is she cursing him?) way he treated her.
It is a good thing the second episode is a whole lot lighter than the first episode because I cried so much during episode one I was starting to think I better not watch episode two.
So far, I am really liking how this show is going. I am always a sucker for this type of hero who struggles against his own super natural ability and even has doubts about their own existence. At this point I am still not completely sold by the heroine's character but I blame the fact that the hero's fiancee was too memorable so it was difficult to see him with any other woman ... even if 120 years has passed. But then I do love a good cross dressing heroine.
All in all, a great start for Scholar Who Walks the Night and I am excited to see if the next two episodes will make it addicting.
