The legend of Prince Hodong and Princess Nakrang is told in Goguryu texts that are over a thousand years
old from the Three Kingdoms era. By the time of Goguryu’s third ruler, King Daemunshin, Goguryu peaked as a powerful nation. Nakrang, on the other hand, allied with China’s Han dynasty and possessed Jammyungo which played itself whenever danger approached the nation. Because of Jammungo, Goguryu was unsuccessful in its attempts to conquer Nakrang.
Goguryu attacks Nakrang with a huge army, but the legendary drum Jammyungo alerts Nakrang’s army and they successfully defend their country. After losing in the battle, Goguryu’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. But Hodong leaves for Goguryu and Nakrang awaits his return with tea
