Jo Yeo-jeong plays a young woman who escapes poverty by offering herself to the king as a concubine, but once she’s in the palace, she discovers that power, greed, and passion have made the environment dangerous. Worse, she’s caught in a love triangle with the Grand Prince and a lowly but kind member of the court! How will she survive? With lots of sex, of course.
She’s a concubine, people expect her to flex her eroticism, so she might as well become really good at it and use it to her advantage. And, you know, if she ends up in part of a plot to murder the megalomaniacal Grand Prince mid-coitus, well, that’s just fine by us.
