Chunhyang is set on the eve of the 18th century in Korea's Joseon Dynasty. Mongryong (Cho Seung-Woo) is the studious 16-year-old son of a Governor who, as the film opens, is about to go away for several years to take exams to become a state official. Before he buckles down, Mongryong does a bit of sightseeing with his servant, Pangja. One day, he lays eyes on a beautiful girl named Chunhyang (Lee Hyo-Jeong) and falls in love with her, despite the differences in their social status (she's the daughter of a gisaeng).
Mongryong promises to marry Chunhyang, as soon as he returns from his exams. She agrees to wait, but, in the meantime, a new Governor (Lee Jeong-Heon) has taken control of the province. He hears of Chunhyang he tries to make the young woman his mistress. She refuses and is badly beaten and given the death sentence.
