This historical-fantasy drama is adapted from a novel of the same name written by Jung Eun-gwol. It tells of a love story between a fictional king: King Lee Hwon of the Joseon Dynasty and a female shaman named Wol. Wol was born from a noble family and became the crown princess and due to a huge conspiracy she is banished from that life into the life of a shaman. Jung II-woo played the role of Prince Yang Myung, the older stepbrother of the king and falls in love with Wol too.
From the MBC Website:
“The drama also talks about right-positioning. Every element should be set in its proper place. Just how it is dangerous for the solar system if the sun and the moon were to swerve off course, the whole world can be dangerous when things stray from their original path.”
