    While solving a case she meets the King, who enjoy her treating him as a Police Officer (as he introduced himself) and who finally falls in love with her. She also meets the Queen Inhyeon (gaining her favor), and another concubine, Jang Hee Bin first an ally then a bitter enemy.
    In her quest to survive on the court and bring justice to the Lowborn she makes many allies, among others: Cha Chun Soo (her not blood related older brother), Seo Yong Gi (Police Chief), Court Ladies Jung and Bong.
