The veteran director of classic Jewel In the Palace and wildly popular Yi San returns with another historical epic in this tale of a young commoner who rises to become the king's concubine and bear him the heir to the throne. Dong Yi is orphaned at a young age when her father and brother are unjustly executed. She is watched over by Cha Chun Soo, a friend of her brother's, who promised to look out for her. Naturally kind and gentle, she gains a position as a maid at the palace, where she quickly wins favor, particularly from the queen. When the queen falls ill, Dong Yi cares for her, and her kindness brings her to the king's attention. When the queen dies mysteriously, Dong Yi becomes the royal concubine, shining brilliantly in the court. As Lady Choi Sook Bin, she bears the king a son while struggling to survive and maintain her position in the tumultuous court life. In a tale of courtly and motherly love, she strives to raise her son well so he may become someone worthy of the throne.
