New Tales of Gisaeng depicts the love, sadness and pain of people surrounding a gisaeng house, where only VIPs can enter.

Dan Sa Ran majored in classical dance while attending college. Her mother died when she was still young and her father remarried, bringing with him a new stepsister and a materialistic stepmother whom she has trouble warming up to. Sa Ran comes from a poor family, but she maintains her dignity around friends who come from rich families. Either fate or coincidence brings her together with Da Mo, to whom she feels an instant attraction, but her awareness of her poor background restrains her from voicing it. A head gisaeng at Buyongkak observes Sa Ran’s natural beauty and grace as well as dancing talent, and recommends her to become a gisaeng.

Ah Da Mo takes business administration training at his father’s company. He does not get along with his father, who is indifferent towards his family and only shows affection towards their pet dog. Da Mo is cocky and tends to look down on women, but begins to question his attitude when he meets Sa Ran by chance. He finds himself involuntarily drawn to her, and their relationship begins.

    Just started to watch this. I know Im Soo Hyang, Sung Hoon and Han Hye Rin from other dramas but this one seems to be their first. This drama is very different from the others. Although there are familiar plots, like birth secret, love triangle etc., but most of the casts are fresh faces. The way they talk to each other is also different from the traditional dramas. Only watched 5 episodes so far, I started at episode 5 and now at ep 10. Don’t know if I could finish all 52 episodes, but so far, it’s an interesting drama.

    agree with Micc it’s the usual plot BUT the romance twist the heart more than other dramas, the humor some so subtle but so so funny. I especially love how quickly the story move along. i was thinking of quickly marathoning 52 eps for a nice quick watch but its just too hard to fast forward. a very interesting and addictive drama.

    Enjoyed this drama a lot especially the ending. Unlike many others which often rush through at the end, this one took time to elaborate a little more, particularly how the 2 families (her new found family & in-laws) move along. The two fathers were hilarious and of course, I cried a lot too. Initially, just by looking at the number of episodes (52), I worried that it might be a drag but like kdfan said, the story developed & moved along quite fast. It has a good mix of romance, family & comedy content – a very good drama to watch!
