The show stars Park Shin-yang, Moon Geun-young, Moon Chae-won, and Ryu Seung-ryong in prominent roles. The story of Painter of the Wind is set in the Joseon Dynasty, during the reign of King Jeongjo. The protagonist of the show is Shin Yoon-bok (played by Moon Geun-young), a girl who dreams of becoming an artist in a time when women are not allowed to pursue such a career. She disguises herself as a boy and begins to learn the art of painting from a master called Kim Hong-do (played by Park Shin-yang).

Shin Yoon-bok's talent as an artist is soon discovered by the people around her, including the king's court painter, Hyewon (played by Ryu Seung-ryong), who takes her under his wing and nurtures her talent. However, Yoon-bok's gender is eventually revealed, which brings her into conflict with the conservative forces at the court who refuse to accept a female artist. Her situation becomes even more precarious when a court lady named Jeong-hyang (played by Moon Chae-won) falls in love with her, not realizing that Yoon-bok is actually a girl.
