A fantasy romance that takes place within a palace between cursed emperor Wang So and an abandoned princess named Sin Yool. The drama will be release next year, January 2015 as a Mon-Tues drama.

In trying to figure out when it might start, looks like it might be the drama following Pride and Prejudice that ends Jan 6, 2015
