She was a former police officer but has since traded her profession to live a reclusive life following her husband's death.

The 'Jewel in the Palace' actress Lee Young Ae leads the cast list as Koo Kyung Yi.
Joining her is 'Kingdom' star Kim Hye Joon as serial killer Song Yi Kyung. Kim Hye Joon played the cold-blooded Queen in the 'Kingdom' series.
