The grandson of Daehan Group, Park Hae-young (Song Seung-hun), is put in charge of educating Seol on proper etiquette in order for her to fulfill her role.

An ordinary college student, Lee Seol (Kim Tae-hee), finds out she's a princess and the great-granddaughter of the Joseon Dynasty's last Emperor, Emperor Sunjong. Lee Seol, at first not believing that she's a princess soon gives in after false news on her father is released. Dong Jae (Lee Soon-jae), Hae Young's (Song Seung-hun) grandfather announces to the public that he would give his estate out if the monarchy is restored. The result of this would be Hae Young losing everything but the clothes on his back. However, as much as he plans to hate Lee Seol, he finds himself drawn to her. Lee Seol, originally having an unrequited love for her professor begins to like Hae Young.
