Ruler: Master of the Mask Eps. 37-40, Underwhelming Endings

The finale of Ruler: Master of the Mask has aired and everything has been neatly wrapped up with a bow. The past 40 episodes have put us through a roller coaster of emotions from dread and apprehension to anxiety and even heartbreak. With the amount of time and emotional investment made into the series, the expectations for the finale were high yet everything about the ending was just so convenient that the overall effect was completely underwhelming.

Throughout the series we were being led to think that there would be a huge confrontation on two fronts: the Crown Prince versus the Pyeonsoo-hwe and the resolution of the love triangle. While both these things came to an expected end, their execution was lackluster, especially in terms of the fates of two of the most important characters to the series, Dae Mok and Lee Seon.

[HanCinema's Drama Review] "Ruler: Master of the Mask" Episodes 9-10

I used to think that Dae-mok was smart, but his plan for maintaining power after murdering the royal family is...disappointing. And also accidentally hilarious. The other Seon does not look, sound, or act like the real Prince Seon. He couldn't fool Dae-mok for a single scene even when the unexpected help of a false witness. Yet apparently, the other Seon is now the lynchpin upon which all of Dae-mok's evil schemes rest.

The actual ambitions of Dae-mok's evil schemes are a tad inconsistent. He had a good thing going with the water price gouging scheme. Water is something everyone needs, but very few people know about the capital costs necessary to procure it. Rather than just continue with that, Dae-mok uses his victory to unnecessarily antagonize the peasantry. At which point Ga-eun comes up with an equally silly and improbable plan to escape, which of course works. Although this is mostly because Dae-mok straight up forgets that the peasants exist for five years.
