Lovers of the Red Sky Episode 4 Highlights: Hong Cheon Gi Meets Grand Prince Yang Myung
The latest episode began with Hong Cheon Gi's (Kim Yoo Jung) surprise encounter with Grand Prince Yang Myung (Gong Myung).
As the royal prince investigates the disappearance of supervisor Ha, he decides to inspect the paint house, which served as Ha Ram's (Ahn Hyo Seop) temporary shelter.
Here, he meets Cheon Gi, who was overprotective towards her newfound friend, ensuring that no one will find him.

Feeling completely ashamed of herself, the female painter hid and watched as the prince's men and Ha Ram left the area.

Unfortunately, Baekgyu Institute headmaster Choi Won Ho (Kim Kwang Gyu) won't allow her to join, but Cheon Gi made her move and added her name to the list.
The Baekgyu Institute steward does not want his name to be dragged into the scene, so he told her to deliver the list to the Palace by herself.
Fortunately, he saw Ha Ram standing alone at the pagoda. The duo once again had their fateful reunion, hinting that Cheon Gi might be falling in love with Ha Ram and vice versa.
