Lee is the son of a governor, who falls for Chunhyang, the daughter of a courtesan, to the point of eloping. While following his heart risks being disowned by his father, Lee must still follow his father when the man is posted to a different city. Lee obeys his father while promising to return to his wife upon succeeding at a military exam. When the governor's replacement arrives, he fancies Chunhyang. However, she rebuffs him and flogged for disobedience. Back in Seoul, Lee passes with honors. Three years pass before Lee returns, with things having greatly changed in his absence.
