He spends several years becoming a great warrior.Dam, who has a photographic memory, becomes a court lady called So Yi, but she feels so guilty about her role in the other servitudes’ deaths that she is mute.

However, he becomes embroiled in the mystery surrounding the deaths of several Hall of Worthies scholars. The deaths were caused by a secret society called “Hidden Root,” which was created long ago by followers of Jeong Do Jeon, with the goal of giving more power to ministers and less to the king. King Tae Jong terminated Jeong Do Jeon and all of his family except his nephew, Jeong Gi Joon, who is now the leader of Hidden Root and lives in disguise not far from King Se Jong.
