Joseon Exorcist Plot
The series takes plays during the Joseon era in the late fourteenth century. Joseon exorcist follows the story of King Tajeon, who was the third King of the Joseon Dynasty in Korea, and his two sons, Prince Chungnyung and Prince Yangnyeong. The elder son is Prince Yangnyeong, who is also the crown prince meaning the heir or the next descendant to the throne, and Prince Chungnyung is the younger son.
The series presents how the King and the two Prices fight off the evil spirit to protect and save their kingdom and their subjects. In order to overthrow the Goreyo Kingdom, the ancestors of the royal family may have taken the help of the evil spirits. Now they have returned, targeting the royal family and the people of Joseon. When the current King was a young prince, he had sealed off the evil spirit. However, the evil spirit has returned again when the kingdom is getting ready for the coronation of the new King.
The concept of the storyline does not follow the typical or cliched romantic or a sad setting rather it follows a horror-filled along with the scary evil setting. It paints the evil force having the capacity to take control of human beings and flesh-eating evil spirits. The series also dabbles on the fate of two Princes. One prince is hungry for power, and the other one whose only desire is education.
