Summary: Jang Bo-go was a slave from Shilla (a Korean dynasty that lasted from 57 B.C. until 935 A.D.) He is sent to Tang (a Chinese dynasty), where he has the opportunity to train his martial arts skills while a gladiator-slave. There, he sees his people being kidnapped and killed by Tang pirates. He comes back to Shilla and asks the king permission to clean out the Tang pirates. Jang Bo-go seizes control of the seas and returns the waterways to his people again. Pirates fled at the name of Jang Bo-go, giving him the name 'Hae Shin', meaning 'Sea God'. During this time, Shilla's royal house was in tumult because kings were being kicked out after only a few years of ruling. One royal family member comes to Jang Bo-go for aid to dethrone the current king. He accepts the offer and dethrones the king, enthroning the royal family member. In gratitude, the new king promised to marry his son to Jang Bo-Go's daughter. However, the king dies after several months. The Crown Prince tries to keep his promise to Jang Bo-go, but he can not due to opposition by the royal officials, who will not allow that a daughter of a former slave can be queen. Jang Bo-go is killed by his former allies, Yeum Moon, the assassin, in league with Yang Kim, a power hungry minister of the the Royal Court.
