As technology advances and stocks are falling more than they're rising, the world sees itself in possibly the worst recession in history to date. South Korea is no exception, even though its government is ruled by and works with the monarchy. South Korea finds itself in a state of national poverty among the other high-powers of the world, many civilians lay their blame on the king who never should've sat on the throne.
The current king, younger brother of the late king, is working with the government to pull the country from ruin. Meanwhile, the people are awaiting for the king's son to ascend to the throne, believing he will be the saving grace they've been waiting for. Not once do the people ever think that the late king's only child, The Princess, could possibly be the monarch they've been waiting for. Brushed aside from the chance to rule because only males could ascend to the throne, The Princess will find support from an unlikely source: The Assassin sent to kill the king, The Princess's uncle.
A country struggling for a future. A people quickly losing hope. The Princess who's rightful place is the throne. The Assassin who fell in love with The Princess.
