The strength of a country is not determined by it’s size or military strength. Instead eight magic items known as the divine bells choose which king or queen to support and this determines that country’s influence.
For as long as anyone can remember a ruler from the Myung-Joo country has never been chosen. Because of this the current ruler Hong-Ryung sees the bells as nothing more then a cheap tool to determine the power of a country. When one of the bells that usually passes to the ruler of Dae-Hyun chooses Hong-Ryung, the truth of the bells’ power begins to come out.
