The Secret Door is a South Korean television series about the historical writings of the wife of the last eight years of Crown Prince Sado's life. She wrote about how Sado was a serial rapist and killer and how it was determined that he was unfit to rule. Another king by the name of Yeongjo wishes to get rid of Sado, but court rules do not allow him to kill Sado outright. With the court stopping him from murdering the evil Sado, Yeongjo issues a royal decree that Sado must be locked inside a large wooden rice chest during the hot summer days of July 1762. Sado only lasts for eight days before he dies and rumors circulated that he was actually mentally ill, but the circumstances of his death were never proven.
