5 Unanswered Questions In The Ending Of Missing Crown Prince

The 2024 drama Missing Crown Prince successfully wrapped up with a happy ending. Yi Gun (played by EXO’s Suho) resolved all the kingdom’s issues and united with Choi Myung Yoon (Hong Ye Ji), culminating in marriage and children. However, several questions remained unanswered, leaving fans pondering the fates of various characters and unresolved plot points. Let’s dive into these lingering mysteries.

Yi Gun’s Position as a Former King

Yi Gun As The Former King


After solving the major problems in the palace, Yi Gun decided to abdicate, handing over his position to Dosung (Kim Min Kyu). Dosung then took over the reins to serve his father and brother. However, Yi Gun’s status after his abdication was left unclear. Does he retain any honorary title, like a prince or nobleman, or is he now just a commoner? The only clue we have is that Yi Gun took a few royal inspector badges to combat injustice at the grassroots level. This leaves viewers wondering about his exact standing in the kingdom.

The Namin Faction’s Political Influence

Namin Faction Political Influence


To balance power with the Seoin faction, the King (Jeon Jin Oh) included several members of the Namin faction in his cabinet. Given the Namin faction’s ties to the previously impeached king, this decision raised some eyebrows. Despite these potential tensions, the drama shifts focus to dealing with Yoon Yi Gyeom’s (Cha Kwang Soo) crimes, sidelining this political subplot. This leaves us questioning whether the Namin faction truly no longer poses a threat to Yi Gun or Dosung’s government, or if they will resurface in the future.

The King’s Dependence on Choi Myung Yoon’s Secret Medicine

King'S Secret Medicine


In an effort to manage palace affairs more effectively, the King took a secret medicine from Choi Myung Yoon, which alleviated his pain and provided strength but also caused dependence. Although he eventually received an antidote from Choi Sang Rok (Kim Ju Hoon), the long-term effects of the initial medicine remain unclear. Has the King overcome his dependence, or will this remain a persistent issue?

Gap Seok and Oh Wol’s Relationship

The potential romantic development between Oh Wol (Kim No Jin) and Gap Seok (Kim Seol Jin) was hinted at throughout the series. However, their fate was not detailed in the finale. They were last seen serving Yi Gun and Choi Myung Yoon, leaving fans to wonder if they truly became soul mates as predicted by a fortune teller earlier in the series.

Lady Jo’s Fate

Lady Jo (Jung Yoon Seo) committed numerous crimes under Yoon Ye Gyeom’s command. However, her fate was left unresolved by the end of the drama. She was last seen being thrown out of the queen’s palace and replaced by Sun Ok (Choi Su Yeon). What ultimately happens to Lady Jo remains a mystery.

The five questions above will likely remain unanswered, leaving viewers to interpret the details not covered in the Missing Crown Prince finale. Are you satisfied with how the drama concluded? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
