Kim Min Jae (Shin Ha Kyun), is a brilliant general who’s distinguished himself by protecting the borders of the recently established Joseon dynasty. He keeps a close eye on Yi Bang Won (Jang Hyuk), the fifth son of King Taejo, whom he believes has ambitions of seizing the throne, Jin (Kang Ha Neul), is Kim Min-Jae’s son and the King’s son-in-law. Due to his position as the King’s son-in-law, he is unable to take part in politics and only seeks out pleasure. Yi Bang Won was instrumental in helping his father overthrow the Goryeo dynasty and founding Joseon, but was passed over when Taejo chose his successor. Meanwhile, Kim Min Jae falls in love for the first time with a gisaeng named Ka Hee (Kang Han Na), whom he takes as his concubine, not realizing that she aims to carry out a vendetta against him.
