The Tale Of Nokdu
A young noble heir named Jeon Nok-du has just discovered that his parents have arranged for him to marry a woman against his will. Jeon Nok-du has no intention of marrying at his parents’ behest and runs away from home. He finds a village to take refuge in, but there is a twist – the village is populated entirely by widows! Jeon Nok-du is forced to go undercover, disguising himself as a woman in order to evade detection. In the village, he encounters a woman named Dong Dong-ju, who discovers his true identity. However, Dong Dong-ju is also hiding a secret – she has also run away from home. Dong Dong-ju is fleeing from an ill-fated gisaeng (courtesan) apprenticeship. Although she is very adept at practical tasks, she is hopeless at singing, dancing, and the other artistic skills required of the gisaeng. Will the unlikely duo succeed in keeping each others’ identities a secret? And what will happen when they begin developing romantic feelings for one another?
