The first in our series on tragic deaths in Korean history. I have a feeling we’ll do a lot of these episodes.

Shawn tells the story of a palace servant of the highest consort of the crown prince under King Sejong. It’s a story of love, intrigue, black magic, and of course a tragic death.

Joe regales the tragic gruesome end of one of the Six Martyred Ministers, all of whom found themselves on the wrong side of the political wind with Prince Suyang/King Sejo came into power.
