Kim So Hyun's character has come a long way since episode 1.

Last month, the 18 year-old actress started her journey as Han Ga Eun in Ruler: Master of the Mask. Ga Eun has been through quite an ordeal in almost 30 episodes. She was a kind-hearted, happy daughter of a nobleman in the very beginning. As the show progressed, she tragically lost her father, became her town's leader, entered the palace as a court lady and now she is one of the finalists to marry the king. Just in case you need a visual of her ascension to royalty, Kim So Hyun recently shared a series of images of herself in character via social media. The photos show her transition from town leader to prospective queen. 

Ga Eun's wardrobe is stunning! Also, she is one lucky girl to have two heartthrobs fighting over her. The current King (Infinite's L) is giving viewers the worst case of second lead syndrome with his lifelong love for Ga Eun. I feel like it will be a crime if he doesn't win her heart, because he has waited so long for her. The real Crown Prince (Kim So Hyun) already owns the entire kingdom. Does he really need Ga Eun by his side too?
