At a time when maps weren’t readily accessible for the public, ‘Gosanja KIM Jeong-ho’ sets out to walk across the Korean peninsula to make the Daedongyeojido- the Great Map of the East Land, with hopes of providing an accurate and accessible map for the ordinary people. He has all but forgotten about his daughter KIM Sun-sil, who grew to be 16 years old in his absence, as he focuses on completing his map. People say he is crazy, but driven by his goal, KIM Jeong-ho endeavors to complete the template for woodblock printing of the map. However, Daewongun, the King Father seeks to take KIM Jeong-ho’s map to gain the upper hand in his power struggle with the house of Kim of Andong.
