During the age of military when riots would never end, Poong-cheon, Seol-lang and Deok-gi used to lead the riots. The moment their cause has been realized, Deok-gi's betrayal leads to the death of Poong-cheon and Seol-lang disappears with Poong-cheon's sword and her daughter Hong-i. She leaves a message saying, "You will die in the hands of me and Hong-i."
