A beautiful but cynical noblewoman makes a bet with her free-spirited cousin that he can have sex with her if he is able to seduce a young woman of great virtue. He accepts the challenge with enthusiasm though not suspecting the nasty trap he is walking into.
Loosely based on the 18th century French novel Dangerous Liaisons, this adaptation takes place in late 18th century Korea, during the Joseon dynasty.
