In this prequel to NOW, fans can finally find out how it all started! The beginnings of Sa Shin Mu, the romantic saga of Ah-Rin and Ah-Ran's parents, and the man behind all the controversy, Pa Goon Sung (North Star)!
The mighty Kingdom of Goguryeo is in the midst of a war which has raged on for decades. In need of talented warriors to help lead their people, O'Rhang Yhun is sent on a mission by his master into enemy territory to find and bring back his eldest brother. However, just as O'Rhang departs on his mission, his master, a renown warrior and general of Goguryeo, passes away. Unfortunately for O'Rhang, his 2nd eldest brother has always been jealous of his martial arts potential and betrays O'Rhang by branding him as a traitor defecting to the enemy.
Due to this betrayal, O'Rhang is pursued and nearly killed. As fate would have it, though, O'Rhang is able to escape from his homeland, barely managing to survive when a maiden as beautiful and graceful as an angel saves his life.
