She soon launches her own private investigation with the help of Madame Sun, her brother Jung-Goo the silk merchant, and a mysterious con-artist named Gwak Yi-Whan.The pursuit of truth behind Bright Moons death reveals a dark world of carnal lust between females, jealousy, and political intrigue where men are no less vulnerable than the members of the weaker sex.
