Magic | Wedding | Family | Tradition

Mr. Beodeul, an old bachelor who grew up as a lonely orphan, comes upon an old magic feather. Thanks to this, he finally has a chance to marry beautiful Seoi, the third daughter of a government official in town. However, he discovers that there are many things to organise for the wedding. Worried and  perplexed, Mr. Beodeul has a hard time preparing for the wedding because he is not sure what needs to be done, and he also is anxious that he might not be able to do it all. Will he surmount the difficult circumstances? Will he eventually succeed in marrying a girl as beautiful as Seoi?
