250 years ago, during the Chosun dynasty, Lee is the son of a powerful 2nd Vice-premier, but his social and career advancements are hampered since he was born out of wedlock. Lee limits himself to his friend’s bookstore where he can enjoy the amazing new western imports and lives happily. His world is soon turned upside down when his father is eliminated by a political enemy; the first vice-premier named Cho, and sent away on an exile. Cho also frames a family friend of Lee’s who oversees the country’s storage of ice, the nation’s most valuable commodity. With this action Cho becomes the most powerful person in the land and creates a stranglehold on the supply of ice to the lower classes. The poor are forced to find ice in treacherous rivers with many dying in the process. Seeing the tyranny that Cho as created, Lee bands together a group of skilled people to steal all the ice from under Cho in an aid to bring him down.
