Akatsuki No Yona Wiki

Shaking Resolve (ふるえる覚悟 Furueru Kakugo?) is the ninth episode of Kusanagi Mizuho's Akatsuki no Yona.


Soo-Won focuses on reforming the country. Kye-Sook walks in and informs Soo-Won on the crimes happening in Kouka Kingdom, whilst he sees the book about the legendary four dragons and King Hiryuu on Soo-Won's desk- noting that it was a 'forbidden book'. As Soo-Won talks about the book, he concludes that fairy tales as such would not reform the country. Later, Yona, Hak and Yoon head towards the location of one of the dragon warriors, who lives in a secret clan atop a mountain. They stay in a nearby village for a short break whilst avoiding Fire Tribe pursuers. But Yona who continues to walk behind Hak's shadow comes to the resolve overnight that she must protect herself and Hak. After a narrow escape from some Fire Tribe guards, Yona asks Hak to teach her how to use the sword, however Hak states that he will only teach her bow for now after becoming convinced. Training diligently as they travel, Yona struggles with her father's attitude  about weapons. She fails to kill an animal as she lacks the intent to kill as noted by Hak. As Hak continues his training with Yona, he asks her to shoot him, or imagine her enemies. Whilst Yona insists that one one of such exists, Hak then tells her to envision Soo-Won. Immediately, Yona manages to shoot the arrow. She looks down, and tells Hak how she hates this side of him but then she begins crying saying how she is willing to pick up a weapon for his sake. However, Hak dismisses this and tells her that it's his duty to protect her, and not hers. A little later, a group of archers ambush the three travellers, reveal they are guardians of the white dragon when they spot and submit to Yona's red hair. Later, in the Village of Hakuryuu, the white dragon stirs.
