The Tale of Nokdu

About

A young noble heir named Jeon Nok Du (Jang Dong Yoon) has just discovered that his parents have arranged for him to marry a woman against his will. Jeon Nok Du has no intention of marrying at his parents’ behest and runs away from home.

 

He finds a village to take refuge in, but there is a twist – the village is populated entirely by widows! Jeon Nok Du is forced to go undercover, disguising himself as a woman in order to evade detection.

 

In the village, he encounters a woman named Dong Dong Ju (Kim So Hyun), who discovers his true identity. However, Dong Dong Ju is also hiding a secret – she has also run away from home.

 

Dong Dong Ju is fleeing from an ill-fated gisaeng (courtesan) apprenticeship. Although she is very adept at practical tasks, she is hopeless at singing, dancing, and the other artistic skills required of the gisaeng.

 

Will the unlikely duo succeed in keeping each others’ identities a secret? And what will happen when they begin developing romantic feelings for one another?

 

This drama was based on a web-based comic series named Nok Du Jeon, by author Hye Jin Yang. The series ran from 2014 to 2018.

 

“The Tale of Nok-Du” is a 2019 drama series directed by Kim Dong Hwi.
