    This interpretation tells of Gwanghae (Cha Seung Won) as the son of a concubine and secondary heir, who in his thirst for power, usurps the Crown and ousts his half-sister Jungmyung (Lee Yeon Hee) from the palace. Gwanghae is then deposed in a coup by the Westerners, who replace him with Injo (Kim Jae Won). Extremely paranoid and wanting to stabilise his position, he is also out for Jungmyung’s life.
