As indicated by the name; this movie is mainly focused on a sexually frank affair that ultimately turns out into a battle between three legends Shin Ha-Kyun, Kang Ha-neul and Jang Hyuk. The intense scenes of sex and romance are floated by betrayals, plotting and bodice-ripping in the whole story.
The movie represents the 14th century; the early days of the Joseon Dynasty and the main focus, in the beginning, is upon King Taejo. The king is finding it hard to make a decision about his successor as the Crown Price Yi Bang-Won has already been rejected from this position. In order to save the clan from foreign invasion, all the private armies and bodyguards are joined to the national force under one commander Kim Min Jae. With time, Kim falls in love with a beautiful giseang woman Ka Hee, and the leading trust towards this lady became a reason of displeasure for his wife.
