  Something for fans of koreanovela to look forward to after Jumong and JEWEL IN THE PALACE. It will be shown this September by GMA-7. The least no. of episodes among the three. Jewel - 54 ep.; Jumong - 81 (no wonder it took that long on air) and Hwang - 24 ep. only.

  This story is about the life of the famous Joseon-era gisaeng, Hwang Jin Yi, who seeks perfection in her art relentlessly and the hardship facing women due to their lowly social status.

Hwang Jin Yi (Ha Ji Won) is the illegitimate child of a noble and Heon Keum (Jun Mi Sun), a noted musician gisaeng. The story is centred around the four men in her life and her pursue in the art of dancing. Her first love with a nobleman's son Kim Eun Ho (Jang Geun Suk) ends in tragedy. Her love affair with Kim Jung Han (Kim Jae Won) does not have a happy ending either. Byuk Kye Soo (Yoo tae Joon) is the Emporer's relative who are obsessed with her and tried every trick but still could not have her. Finally there is her devoted bodyguard Yi Saeng (Lee Shi Hwan) who never deserted her in times of need. Meanwhile, there is Bu Yong (Wong Bit Na) who not only is Hwang Ji Yi's rival in dancing but also in love.
