She wakes up in the year of 941 in the body of Hae Soo and tries to live her life there. Among the many royal princes of the ruling Wang family, she initially falls in love with the gentle and warm-hearted 8th Prince, Wang Wook (Kang Ha-neul). Later, she falls in love with Wang So (Lee Joon-ki), the fearsome 4th Prince, who hides his face behind a mask and is given the derogatory label “wolf dog”. As the story develops, Hae Soo finds herself unwittingly caught between the rivalry and politics among the princes over the fight for the throne.

In the middle of the story, Wang Eun married Park Soon-deok (Z.Hera) against his will because of the King’s order. However, Soon-deok had always had a crush on Eun since their childhood. Even so, Eun mistreats her and favors Hae-soo over her, and Soon-deok wholeheartedly accepts the poor treatment and still takes care of Eun.

When  Wang Yo (Hong Jong-hyun) committed treason and became the king, promptly accusing Eun’s family of treason. Eun and Soon-deok were hiding in Hae-soo’s place while waiting for a boat to make their escape, however, Eun was bored from spending several days inside the room where they were waiting. Soon-deok took him to the hot bath house and they spend sweet time together.

Soon-deok gives Eun his slingshot and Eun gives her an incense pouch. Soon-deok is upset and thinks that the incense pouch must be for Hae Soo. However, Eun clarifies that the incense pouch is for her and asks her if she doesn’t like it. Soon-deok doesn’t reply. Eun then mumbled that it was strange, because many people said that all pretty girls like incense pouches.

Soon-deok is startled and recalls her past when little Eun said the same thing to her. She turned her head toward Eun, who is busy making excuse for saying her pretty. She’s touched that Eun is starting to pay attention to her. She holds Eun’s face and suddenly kisses him. Eun freezes and she says that she understands what he was saying.

Eun, who is embarrassed, says that he wants two sons and two daughters. Soon-deok innocently asks if kissing will make her pregnant. Eun smiles at her response and looks at her fondly. He says to himself that it would have been nice to live like that from the beginning, meaning that he regrets taking Soon-deok for granted since the beginning of their marriage. When they walk back inside, Eun offers his hand to Soon-deok and she shyly takes his hand. They walk to their room hand in hand and with big smiles on their faces.
