About This Book
Author Yoon Yi Soo learned of Crown Prince Hyomyeong in Spring 2013. She uses his life story and the Joseon era as the plot and setting of this fictional pentalogy.
Crown Prince Hyomyeong is the youngest son of the 23rd king of Joseon. From the age of 19, he reigned over his ailing father’s kingdom. Although he died at the young age of 22 years old, his name is well-remembered even in this day and age for he accomplished many things during his reign. He strived to restore the throne and led his people in making great advancements in literature and the arts. Conflicts and tensions that existed during this time are realistically portrayed in the novels.
Ra-on, the female protagonist, and Young, the male protagonist, meet at Mr. Koo’s smoke shop. The smoke shop is popular among youngsters who seek “Sannom”’s relationship advice and spot-on fortune telling. The two continue to cross paths and their lives become intertwined like tangled threads.
