  • The climactic battle between the pirates and Keum-ji's forces comes to a conclusion. Despite her many injuries, Yona takes an important step forward to protect those she cares about. However an even greater trial awaits her.

  • Yona and Yun infiltrate Keum-ji's trafficking operation as "merchandise." Despite their brave fronts, the plan seems to keep unraveling. The Dragons and pirates begin their attack, hoping the signal will come in time!

  • Knowing that the showdown with Keum-ji draws near, Jeaha gets intel on when the sales of the kidnapped girls will happen. But the very presence of those girls makes the fight harder. Until Yona volunteers to go undercover, to Hak's horror.

  • In order to be accepted by Captain Gi-gang, Yona agrees to a test: retrieve the cheonsu plant, a valuable medicine. It only grows on a steep ocean-side cliff, and harsh winds and waves will test her resolve!

  • The search for the Green Dragon takes Yona and the others to the port town of Awa. Hak quickly realizes there is something amiss in the town, and to make matters worse, the Green Dragon seems impossible to pin down.

  • Geun-tea isn't thrilled at having to participate in the "pretend-war" that Su-won cooked up. But in the midst of "battle" Geun-tea begins to realize there is more to the new king than meets the eye.

  • As Yona and her party begin their search for the Green Dragon, she gets a crash course in the reality of life for the common folk. Meanwhile Su-won visits the capital of the Earth Clan, to the great annoyance of its general!

  • Trapped after an earthquake, Yona and the others try to dig their way out, with the help of the Blue Dragon. After a lifetime of isolation and hatred, the Blue Dragon finds it hard to believe that Yona is truly his path to freedom.

  • After being saved by the Blue Dragon, Yona is determined to meet with him again. But when she finds him, he resists the pull to go with her, claiming he is cursed. Meanwhile, the villagers plot to dispose of Yona and her companions.

  • "Why? Why am I so afraid? She's just a little girl..." While suffering injuries, Yona and Yun successfully complete their task, and Jeaha rushes to their aid to fight against hordes of attacking mercenaries. Watching Jeaha fights, Yun realizes how truly amazing those who possess the strength of the dragons are. Sinha joins the fray, and the mercenaries continue to fall. Meanwhile, Hak and Gija remain behind to fight with the pirates, overwhelming their enemies with extraordinary strength. Realizing he is at a disadvantage, Kumji tries to flee so he can recuperate...

  • Yona and Yun, who willingly entered Kumji's store as bait to help rescue the captured women, successfully infiltrate the ship transporting the women, where Kumji appears before them.

  • "Why are you always so reckless, Princess? Sometimes I wish I could tie you up..." Sensing the impending battle against Kumji, the pirates steel their resolve. Meanwhile, Yona heads into the town for reconaissance with Jeaha and happens to spot Lord Kumji. Based on the stories of the townsfolk, Jeaha determines the day of Kumji's human trafficking deal with the Kai Empire, Kouka Kingdom's neighboring country. With Jeaha's report, the pirates immediately begin working on a strategy under Captain Gigan, when Yona suddenly says the unthinkable.

  • "Maybe it's because you don't really want her." Captain Gigan agrees to allow Yona to fight alongside her pirates if she is able to pick the "senjuso," a rare medicinal herb growing in the middle of a sheer cliff, without anyone's assistance. Yona's companions try to talk her our of accepting such a dangerous task, but Hak, who understands Yona's emotions, desperately suppresses his desire to stop her. Jeaha leads Yona to the seaside cliff where the senjuso grows. She gathers her courage and begins walking down the narrow path. However, the gusting wind and waves relentlessly assault Yona...

  • The search for the Green Dragon takes Yona and the others to the port town of Awa. Hak quickly realizes there is something amiss in the town, and to make matters worse, the Green Dragon seems impossible to pin down.

  • "Are those the eyes of a rabbit...?" At Su-won's suggestion, a "war game" is held to provide entertainment at a festival. Su-won, Ju-do, and Geun-tea participate in the war game. Geun-tea, one of the best warriors in Kouka Kingdom, admires Su-won's father Yuhon, an exceptional warrior. Though he deems the laid back Su-won who is unlike his father a "rabbit," during the war game, Geun-tea...

  • "I need to become stronger so I don't lose Hak or anyone else. What can I do...?" Yona names the Blue Dragon Sinha, or Moonlight, and he joins the group on its journey. While the group searches for the Green Dragon following Gija's guidance, they pass through a village abandoned by the king and generals. Yona is wounded by the miserable conditions and a villager's criticisms of her father King Il. Meanwhile, the new king Su-won travels with General Ju-do to the Earth Tribe capital of Chishin under General I Geun-tea's rule.

  • “Listen, Blue Dragon! Your eyes are cursed. I will teach you how to control them, but you must never use them!” In their search for the Blue Dragon, Yona and her friends visit a hidden village carved from stone. Though Ki-Ja insists the Blue Dragon is there, the villagers claim there is no Blue Dragon.

  • “I want to support her. That delicate form on the verge of tears trying to be strong...” Joined by the White Dragon Ki-Ja, following his claim that Dragon Warriors can sense each other, Yona and her friends begin their search for the Blue Dragon. However, even with Ki-Ja's power, they are unable to determine his exact location.

  • “This person... This person is the master I have been hoping for...”Yona and her friends arrive in the village where the White Dragon lives. The proud villagers who have protected the power of the White Dragon and passed it down through generations of White Dragons believe Yona may be the descendant of the Hiryuu King who employed the first White Dragon when they see her red hair.

  • “I will restore Kouka Kingdom to the powerful kingdom of the previous kings. Should anyone stand in my way, even if he is a god, I will crush him underfoot!”Though Hak continues to fight off the soldiers pursuing him, a poison prevents him from fighting like his usual self.
