Based on a webtoon of the same name, “Tale of Nok-Du” is a historical rom-com that tells the story of a man named Jeon Nok Du (played by Jang Dong Yoon) who disguises himself as a woman to enter a mysterious all-female community. There, he meets Dong Dong Joo (played by Kim So Hyun), a gisaeng-in-training who wants to be anything but a gisaeng (female courtesan).
The clip begins with Kim So Hyun boldly cutting her braided hair and turning it into a bobbed hairstyle that sets her apart from everyone else in her community. The look she has on her face as she pulls back a bowstring in another scene shows her assertive and righteous personality.
In the final part, she lies in bed, saying to herself, “I didn’t even know this was the inn you were talking about. Why? Because I have no interest in you at all.” Though she says this, she actually seems to be in denial of her attraction to Jeon Nok Du.
