Nan Jung, an illegitimate daughter of a government officer, tries to find someone who can elevate her status. She chooses to become a gisaeng and start her training under themost famous gisaeng in Hanyang. Meanwhile, the King marries, for the third time, a young lady from the Yoon family, his former queen’s relatives. Won Hyung, the new queen’s brother, falls in love with Nan Jung at first sight and would do everything to make her his concubine. Nan Jung demands him an audience with the queen, and Queen Mun Jung and Nan Jung soon become allies to bring the court under their absolute control.
