Born into a prestigious family during the Joseon era, Yoo Se-poong (Kim Min-jae), a talented young royal physician. However, after falling victim to a conspiracy, he is ousted from the palace and stumbles into the remote Gyesu Village. He winds up staying here, and treating the locals as part of the Gyesu Clinic, headed by Gye Ji-Han, a middle-aged local doctor.

The second season picks up on the story of Se-poong returning to Hanyang, the capital of Joseon, together with the motley crew of the Gyesu Clinic. You can also expect more romance between Se-poong and Eun-woo.
