Synopsis



King Hungang and his liege men are offering to the god of the sky and earth in foggy and cloudy Gaeunpo. The priestess who is leading the ritual ceremony is forming the energy of Taeguk with female shamans and bringing rain and wind.

Gain is a matchless woman leaving a beautiful light in her path, and a rebellious god is giving her a look of adoration and vigilantly awaiting an opportunity. The rebellious god is making Gain’s mind confused, and a group of rebellious gods are making a surprising attack on the people and Gaeunpo with the image of the devil and red blood.

At first, the rebellious god and other gods on his side seems to seize the chance to victory, but Cheoyong, who is a son of a dragon in East Sea, and his brothers come down from the sky with the moonlight and defeat the rebellious gods.

King Hungang, who has been watching this, grants a government position of Geupgan to Cheoyong, and gives Gain for his wife. Cheyong and Gain form a harmonious life while dancing in love. Cheoyong goes to Seoul with King Hungang and rules the nation with him, and throws a congratulatory banquet and enjoys a festival.

The priests and female shamans are exorcising for safety and security for the palace.

The night of the festival deepens, and the light of the moon shines on the back and carefully continues the feast of light in the line.
The rebellious god enters into the detached house of Gain with vengeance. He transformed into Cheoyong and slept with Gain. As Cheoyong sees four legs, he becomes embarrassed and withdraws himselft quietly while singing and dancing. As soon as the rebellious god takes off the mask of Cheoyong, Gain tries to escape and faces with fear, but she ends up being raped by the group of rebellious gods.

Later, Cheoyong comes back home and approaches Gain, but Gain throws herself from the top of a big rock due to the sense of guilt that she did not keep chastity.
Cheoyong sees what Gain did, and he screams and becomes harassed by agony. He starts to dance of pipe and reaches nirvana, and dance Byuksamu with his brothers.
While seeing Cheoyong in nirvana, the rebellious god and other gods realize that they cannot exert their wicked energy anymore and they did self-destruction. Rebellious gods withdraw themselves even if they only see the image of Cheoyong.

A young rebellious god appears and keeps an eye of the road of people.
