introduction

Prince Hodong

 

 

 

Synopsis

 

The legend of Prince Hodong and Princess Nakrang is told in Goguryeo texts that are over a thousand years old from the Three Kingdoms era. By the time of Goguryeo’s third ruler, King Daemushin, Goguryeo peaked as a powerful nation. Nakrang, on the other hand, allied with China’s Han dynasty and possessed Jamyeonggo which played itself whenever danger approached the nation. Because of Jamyeonggo, Goguryeo was unsuccessful in its attempts to conquer Nakrang.

 

First Act

Goguryeo attacks Nakrang with a huge army, but the legendary drum Jamyeonggo alerts Nakrang’s army and they successfully defend their country. After losing in the battle, Goguryeo’s King Daemushin prays to his gods and orders his son, Prince Hodong, to attack Nakrang once again.

Queen Wonbi tries to get intimate with her stepson, Prince Hodong. But Prince Hodong ignores her attention and leaves with his soldiers to explore the eastern part of his country. While exploring the countryside, Prince Hodong enters a hunting contest and catches a white deer, which is considered as a godly creature. This leads to an invitation by Nakrang’s King Choiree to visit his country, where Prince Hodong meets Princess Nakrang for the first time. Hodong and Nakrang get married in an extravagant wedding ceremony and swear to love each other till death.

 

Second Act

Hodong leaves for Goguryeo and Nakrang awaits his return with tears. In the meantime, General Pildae confesses his love for Princess Nakrang, but Princess Nakrang doesn’t even give him a second glance. After returning to Goguryeo, Prince Hodong sends a secret letter to his wife, Princess Nakrang, asking her to tear apart Jamyeonggo so that Goguryeo can conquer Nakrang. Torn between her husband and her father, Princess Nakrang finally decides to tear apart Jamyeonggo, and this leads King Choiree to kill his own daughter.
