However, her peaceful life is shattered when her father is caught in an embezzlement scheme. Amid this corruption, strange people show up in her room calling her “Princess” and “Chosen One”. While scrambling to comprehend the situation, another man suddenly appears with his living doll to kidnap her among the chaos.
