Story Summary

When Sunhwa discovers that her father will loose his house because of a new unfair tax, she decides to travel to the governor herself and offer to answer any question he asks in exchange for enough money to pay the taxes. When she offers herself as his slave should she answer incorrectly, the governor thinks the game will be good entertainment, but is not aware of how clever Sunhwa can be.
