Goongnyeo (Shadows in the Palace)


Court maid Wol-ryung (Seo Yeong-hee) is found hanged in her room in the royal palace. Court nurse Chun-ryung (Park Jin-hee) realizes that Wol-ryung was murdered, and an autopsy reveals that she had given birth, contrary to the law requiring court maids to be virgins under penalty of death. Wol-ryung was also the personal maid of unpopular concubine Hee-bin (Yoon Se-ah), who has given birth to the king's only son in 15 years but is not accepted by the queen mother. A murder investigation would cause too many problems for everyone, and Chun-ryung is forced by her superiors to declare Wol-ryung's death a suicide. She starts investigating the murder on her own, and discovers that the case is far more complicated and dangerous than it would seem. Something supernatural is also occuring in the palace.
