Synopsis

First seven episodes of the Korean historical drama series set during the period of the Chosun Dynasty. Headstrong Chae Ok (Ji-won Ha) grows up as a servant in the Hwangbo household and eventually becomes a 'Damo' (a low-status policewoman). Skilled in swordplay, the brave and righteous Chae Ok fearlessly tackles numerous dangerous challenges and clever criminals. Living as she does in an unequal society, she must not only fight crime and defend peace, but also struggle for freedom and respect as a woman. However, while Chae Ok never flinches in the face of adversity, she is hopelessly lost when it comes to matters of the heart. Her relationship with Hwangbo Yoon (Seo-Jin Lee), her superior and the master of her household, is intimate but complicated; although Yoon has been in love with Chae Ok for years, they are held back by their class differences. Then, while going undercover to investigate a group of rebels, Chae Ok finds herself falling for the charismatic gang leader Jang Sung Baek (Min-Joon Kim). Torn between her attraction for Sung Baek and her loyalty to Joon, Chae Ok's decision will not only change her life, but also affect the fate of the dynasty itself...
