Lee Do is the King of Joseon Dynasty, but, actually, his father Taejong wields absolute power and controls the country. Taejong has killed indescriminately, including family members and comrades, to attain his power. Even his son, the King of Joseon, lives in fear of his father.

Now Taejong targets Sim-On, the king's father-in-law and the prime minister of Joseon. King Lee Do's wife Queen Sohun cries over the fate of her father, but King Lee Do warns his wife to not do anything or more people will be killed. Nevertheless, Lee Do hands over a secret letter instructing Sim-On to hide in the country of Myung until he is able to take care of everything. The letter is given to a child court lady and she is ordered to deliver the letter to Simon's servant before Sim-On's imminent arrest. But, the child court lady is on the side of Taejon and the letter's content is changed.

Ddol-Bok and his father are servants for Sim On's family. Ddol-Bok's father is mentally slow and teased by others.

Ddol-Bok, his father and So-Yi are able to run away, while Sim On's family and his servants are arrested. Sim On himself is not at home. In front of Sim On's home, they meet the child court lady. The child court lady gives them the secret letter. Ddol-Bok asks So-Yi if the letter is to save people's lives and So-Yi responds yes. But, So-Yi only pretended to read the letter as she is unable to read. Ddol-Bok's father goes and meets Sim On and his party as they return from Myung. When Ddol-Bok hands the letter over, the royal forces arrive and arrests all of them. While they are being taken to prison the royal forces also arrest young Ddol-Bok and So-Yi. Sim On and Ddol-Bok's father are killed in prison. Shortly afterwards, Sim On's family and servants are enraged and escape from prison. But, they are killed by the royal forces.
