In the middle of the 18th century in Joseon, the social class's severe contradiction and rapid change are vividly described through the main character of this story, who was born into the lowest-class family. This is a story about the hope and self-consciousness of the lowest class of people, who were evaluated only by the value of wealth without being recognized for the minimum value as a human being. In addition, it introduces the reality of the underground organization of the lowest class of people, which emerged as a serious social problem during the Manchu Invasion of Korea in 1636.
