July 7th in the lunar calendar, Coming from the star of Gyunwoo and the star of Jiknyo comes to visit Gyunwoo and jiknyo, living in reincarnation on the earth
They are escorted to a tomb painting of Kyunwoo and Jiknyo story by the starlight. With the touch of the light, the painting comes to life, awakening from the long sleep and Kyunwoo and Jiknyo begin to retrieve their past memory.
In the past, Kyunwoo and Jiknyo met in a festival of the Heavenly World. Lost in the passionate music and dance, they fell in love with each other.
Then, the emperor of the Heavenly World announced that the winner of the dance competition would marry his daughter, Jiknyo and after a series of fierce competition, Kyunwoo became the final winner. Kyunwoo and Jiknyo got married in a magnificent wedding.
But the happiness won’t last long as Poongbak, the God of Wind refused to admit his defeat and joined hands with the God of Jealousness to stage a revolt against the entire Heavenly World, in a blinded one-sided love for Jiknyo.
The army of Poongbak marched into the castle of the Heavenly World and finally Kyunwoo won in the fierce final battle against Poongbak. However, Poongbak ,refusing to submit to the arch enemy, flied the last arrow to Kyunwoo but Jiknyo jumped in to take the arrow, instead of Kyunwoo. Jiknyo died and ascended to the sky to become a star and Kyunwoo mourned in the deepest arrow as he couldn’t let her go. Then, the spirits of love, coming out of the tear of Kyunwoo laid a bridge between the two. They met on the bridge and ascended to the sky to become stars.
Coming back to the present, thousands years later, Kyunwoo and Jiknyo now retrieve the memory with the journey through the wall painting and another love story begins as they find each other.
