Damo is a historical drama series produced by MBC in 2003. Starring Ha Ji-won, Lee Seo-jin, and Kim Min-jun, the show is set in the Joseon dynasty around the mid-17th century. The story of Damo revolves around three characters - Chae-ok (played by Ha Ji-won), Hwangbo Yoon (played by Lee Seo-jin), and Jang Sung-baek (played by Kim Min-jun). Chae-ok is a skilled swordswoman who was born into a lowly family but dreams of becoming a Damo, a female officer in the government. Hwangbo Yoon is an aristocrat who, despite his privileged upbringing, has rebelled against the corrupt officials in his country. Jang Sung-baek, on the other hand, is a ruthless assassin who has been tasked with executing a group of rebels led by Hwangbo Yoon.

The first episode begins with a flashback of Chae-ok's childhood, where she witnesses the brutal murder of her parents by the soldiers of the corrupt government. Traumatized by the incident, Chae-ok grows up to become a skilled swordswoman and a samaritan. However, her dreams of becoming a Damo are shattered when she is rejected by the recruitment officer due to her lowly background. Fueled by her desire to bring justice to her parents' killers and to help the people, Chae-ok becomes a secret agent for the government under the code name "Damo."

Meanwhile, Hwangbo Yoon has formed a group of rebels in an attempt to overthrow the corrupt officials and bring justice to the people. The rebels are known as the "Swords of Chosun," and their ultimate goal is to help the oppressed citizens of their country. Hwangbo Yoon's group is a thorn in the side of the corrupt government, and they are hunted relentlessly by the government's assassins.

Jang Sung-baek is one such assassin who is tasked with killing Hwangbo Yoon and his rebel group. As a ruthless and efficient killer, Jang Sung-baek stops at nothing to complete his mission. However, his loyalty to the government is tested when he meets Chae-ok, who makes him question his beliefs and convictions.

The show is a thrilling adventure that follows the lives of these three characters as they navigate the dangerous world of politics, corruption, and rebellion. As Chae-ok uses her cunning and intelligence to gather information and thwart the corrupt officials, she is assisted by Hwangbo Yoon and his rebels, who are always ready to fight for justice. Jang Sung-baek, torn between his duty to the government and his growing affection for Chae-ok, struggles to find his place in the conflict.

Damo is a well-written and well-acted show that combines history, drama, action, and romance to create a compelling storyline. The show's attention to detail in the costumes and sets, as well as its realistic portrayal of the historical period, adds to the authenticity of the show. The strong performances by the lead actors, particularly Ha Ji-won, who brings depth and nuance to her character, make the show believable and engaging.

Overall, Damo is a must-watch for fans of historical dramas and action-packed adventures. With its engaging storyline, well-drawn characters, and stunning visuals, the show is sure to keep audiences entertained until the very end.

Damo is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (14 episodes). The series first aired on December 3, 2009.
