The Bequeathed Plot Summary


After the untimely demise of her uncle, Yoon Seo-Ha (Kim Hyun-Joo) unexpectedly inherits the ancestral family gravesite, thrusting her into a series of perplexing and ominous events. As the narrative unfolds, Yoon Seo-Ha finds herself entangled in a web of unsettling incidents that seem to have a mysterious connection to the sacred burial grounds now under her ownership. To compound the complexity, her younger step-brother, Kim Young-Ho (Ryu Kyung-Soo), emerges as an enigmatic figure, adding another layer of bewilderment to her already tumultuous life.

Simultaneously, Detective Choi Sung-Jun (Park Hee-Soon) begins to harbor suspicions that the unsettling events transpiring in the village are intricately linked to Yoon Seo-Ha’s family gravesite. Driven by a relentless pursuit of the truth, Detective Choi embarks on an investigation to unravel the cryptic ties between the incidents and the sacred grounds. However, the detective’s efforts are met with challenges, as he contends with an antagonistic relationship with Park Sang-Min (Park Byung-Eun), the chief of the detective squad where Choi Sung-Jun is stationed.

Within the confines of the police station, an air of tension prevails, as Choi Sung-Jun and Park Sang-Min grapple with a complicated dynamic rooted in a past case. The chief, harboring a sense of inferiority and jealousy towards Detective Choi, adds an intriguing layer of interpersonal drama to the unfolding mystery. As the detective delves deeper into the investigation, the buried secrets of the past and the present interweave, creating a gripping tale of suspense, familial intrigue, and the complex dynamics of law enforcement.
