) is her charismatic and brilliant mentor, while Moon Chae Won and Bae Soo Bin, who both leaped to fame the following year in Brilliant Legacy
, co-star. Assured, delicate, and lovely, this period romance/mystery pulled in successful ratings and is not one to miss.
In 1776, a prominent court painter is killed after being secretly commissioned by the crown prince to paint a portrait. His friend and fellow painter Seo Jing begins investigating his death, but he and his wife also end up dead. His daughter goes missing...
10 years later, a young student named Shin Yun-bok enters the Academy of Painting, the Dohwaseo, which Seo Jing had been a member of. Kim Hong-do, a brilliant painter and senior member of Dohwaseo, discovers a fiery talent in the young painter, and takes Yun-bok under his wing. The king also becomes aware of Yun-bok's talent and requests that Kim Hong-do and Yun-bok together serve him together by painting the realities of the common people.
The two painters are quickly caught up in court intrigues, however, and thrown out of Dohwaseo in a power move against the king by court officials. The king then orders the two to find the portrait he had secretly commissioned ten years before, a portrait of his father. Untangling history and dangerous secrets, the two unearth the painting while discovering the truth behind Seo Jing's death. Meanwhile, master painter Kim Hong-do has come to have intense feelings for his pupil, but doesn't realize that Yun-bok is actually a woman, Seo Jing's daughter...
