Plot[edit]

Over a thousand years ago during the Baekje Dynasty, there was a princess unlike any other. Skilled in both arts and athletics, the beautiful Princess Buyeo Ju is beloved by royals and citizens alike. When Baekje is betrayed by the spy Kum-hwa, Buyeo Ju even steals the heart of her kingdom's conqueror, Silla general Kim Yu-seok. But alas, her love lies with her protector, General Guishil Ari. Determined to have the princess, Kim Yu-seok kills Guishil Ari, but Buyeo Ju chooses death over submission. When she jumps off a cliff, however, she is mysteriously time warped into the future. In present-day Korea (2003), Buyeo Ju again meets the two men of her life, reincarnated as aimless but warm-hearted fashion designer Kang In-chul and Japanese tycoon Fujiwara Tatsuji. The two men have no idea about their past lives, but Tatsuji begins to feel a mysterious attraction towards Buyeo Ju. Despite her fear that history will repeat itself, Buyeo Ju finds herself falling for In-chul, in a fateful romance spanning from ancient Korea to modern times.
