Plot

Miz Anhyeop is a beautiful woman who likes money a bit too much and has a weak concept of chastity. While her husband Kim Sambo wanders around the country to gamble, she makes money by doing chores around the town and sometimes by selling her body. One day, she is caught by a mulberry field keeper while stealing the mulberries from a field of mulberry trees with Samdol, a servant who is trying to sleep with her. After she returns home safely, Samdol becomes angry at her for ignoring him and tells her husband Kim Sambo about her behavior around the town.
