Another brilliant masterpiece from famed director Lee Byeong-hun (Jewel in the Palace, Heo Jun, Yi San: Wind in the Palace), Dong Yi is an inspirational tale of hope and triumph of the human spirit. Dong Yi follows the tumultuous life of Choi Dong Yi, the water maid who rises to the position of royal consort to King Suk-jong and becomes the mother of the future king, King Young-jo, the twenty-first king of the Joseon Dynasty. During the Joseon Dynasty, Dong Yi has a peaceful and happy childhood until her father and brother are framed for killing nobles and executed. Determined to clear her family's name, she enters the palace as a servant to find a court lady who could be the key to finding out the truth. With her resilience, persistence and strong sense of justice, she soon gains the favor of King Suk-jong and finds an ally in Queen In-hyeon as she battles the wiles of the devious Jang Hee-bin who will stop at nothing to be queen.
