A beautiful martial arts prodigy gifted with superhuman strength finds her desperate attempt to become just another average student complicated by the appearance of an evil martial arts master in possession of the legendary sword that will allow him to achieve ultimate power in this lighthearted action comedy from My Sassy Girl writer/director Kwak Jae-yong. Kang So-hwi may look like your average college student, though closer inspection reveals her to be a highly skilled martial artist with the strength of ten men. Trouble is, So-hwi's unique abilities have frightened off not only her fellow undergrads, but the boy of her dreams as well. When So-hwi announces her plans to give up the martial arts and pursue a new path in life, her devastated father begins to fear that he has lost the heiress to the family legacy and enlists the aid of his daughter's old friend Il-young in setting the troubled girl back on the right path. Meanwhile, malevolent master Heuk-bong begins using the legendary Fine Blade to kill every swordsman who stands in his way and achieve his diabolical dream of dominating the martial arts world. Before long, Heuk-bong and So-hwi's father are standing face-to-face for a showdown that only one man will walk away from. Later, as So-hwi cradles her dying father in a loving embrace, she vows to pick up her sword, avenge his death, and restore honor to their family name.
