Having being saved by a female Shaman after her killers deemed her to be dead, she grew up to become a shaman just like her adopted mother under the name of Wol. She encounters the adult "Lee Hwon" who grew up to be a cruel, cold and uncaring person after the pain of losing his most beloved Yeon Woo. As Lee Hwon began to returned back to his orginal kind nature due to his love for Wol whom attracted him with her similarities with Yeon Woo, the truth behind the plotting of Yeon Woo's death comes to light and he finds himself again in a difficult position as he finds out his grandmother and sister being involved in it. =================== Main Cast Han Ga In / Kim Yoo Jung (young Yeon Woo) as Wol / Heo Yeon Woo She was saved by a female shaman when she was young when she was plotted to be killed by the people who are both jealous and fearful of her beauty and wits when she was just a young girl. Having grown up to be a female shaman under the name of Wol (Moon), she re-encounters Lee Hyon whom she was once betrothed to. Upon noticing the many similiarities between Wol and Yeon Woo, Lee Hyon begins to fall for her. Lee Hyon's half older brother, Yang Myung Gun who gets attracted to her kind nature begins to fall for her as well. Will she be able to survive when the suspicions are once are aroused that the supposely dead Yeon Woo is still alive? Kim Soo Hyun / Yeon Jin Goo (young Lee Hwon) as Lee Hwon Lee Hwon became a changed person after the killing of his betrothed, Yeon Woo. Not longer is he the kind-hearted boy that everyone in the palace/court used to like but a cold, hearted person who refused to love nor accept love no matter how hard Yoon Bo Gyung, the girl who had replaced Woo as his wife tries to win his heart. But his heart began to start beating again after his encounter with Wol who has lots of many similiarities with the already dead Yeon Woo. Jung Il Woo / Lee Min Ho (young Yang Myung) as Prince Yang Myung / Yang Myung Goon His given title is Prince Yang Myung / Yang Myung Goon. He and Lee Hyon are half-brothers who have the same mother but different father. Due to Lee Hyon's father being the king, the position of the crown prince was passed down to Lee Hyon although he is older in age, talented and more well mannered than Lee Hyon. And most likely because he is the elder brother, he is always trying to give in / not fight with his brother for anything. He projects an image of a playboy especially after the death of his first wife. But then with the appearance of Wol, he finds himself fighting for something he wants against his brother for the first time. Kim Min Seo / Kim So Hyun (young Yoon Bo Kyung) as Yoon Bo Kyung / Queen Yoon She became the first official wife of Lee Hwon after the death of Yeon Woo but received none of his love as a woman. Although she appears to be a kind and warm person, she hides her real face under the mask of lies and pretending to be nice. Song Jae Hee / Si Wan (young Heo Yeom) as Heo Yeom He is the elder brother of Yeon Woo who adores his sister dearly. Although he is marries Princess Min Hwa through an arranged marriage, his heart remains with "Sul" the serving maid of Yeon Woo whom he had grown up with, causing Min Hwa's hatred of him of not thinking of her as a woman. Song Jae Rim as Woon Woon (Song Jae Rim) He is the loyal bodyguard of Lee Hwon who is cold on the outside but warm within. Although he is blessed with good looks, brains and fighting skills, he is faulted as being born as the son of a concubine which gives him a lowly status although he is the son of a nobleman. Nam Bora / Jin Ji Hee (young Min Hwa) as Princess Min Hwa Due to a childish streak of jealous towards Yeon Woo when they were young, Min Hwa unwittingly becomes involved in the plot to kill Yeon Woo. She has been carrying the guilty conscience ever since she knew that Yeon Woo was killed because of her childish act and hopes to make amends towards her family especially after marrying Yeom, Yeon Woo's brother whom she loved with all her heart but he doesn't even think of her as a woman to love after their marriage. Yoon Seung Ah as Sul [snow] She was the maid serving Yeon Woo before her supposed death and had grown up with both Yeom and Yeon Woo since they were young. She followed and served Wol who lost her memories, protecting her with the martial arts she learnt from the enemies who are out to harm her.
