The Scholar Who Walks The Night

Set in the Joseon era, the drama follows bookseller Yang-sun (Lee Yu-bi) who is disguised as a man to sell books and make ends meet.  She comes to the attention of the mysterious scholar Kim Sung-yeol (Lee Joon-gi) when he discovers she is selling rare books.  Thinking she may be able to find a memorandum that was owned by his best friend the late Crown Prince Jonghyun (Lee Hyun-woo), he asks her for help.

Sung-yeol, as a guardian vampire, hopes to challenge the all-powerful vampire Gwi (Lee Soo-hyuk), using the plan that is outlined in the memorandum.  After 120 years and the death of his family and friends, Sung-yeol’s quest for vengeance still burns brightly and he will stop at nothing to bring Gwi down.
