Flames spread like disease as the royal palace falls victim to murder led by greed and betrayal. Forced to escape from the catastrophe, two young survivors seek help from a courtesan of Yu Hyangru. To reclaim what has been lost, the plan is set within the heroic guise of the Crimson Moon. However, as the mysteries of the past begin to resurface and dark secrets start to unwind, a cruel fate awaits for each and every encounter.
Twelfth Night, a webtoon written and drawn by Muryu, is a story about a love triangle with several twists. A deposed crown prince plots a rebellion to take back his kingdom... the present king is lovesick over a courtesan who wants nothing to do with him... and a young noblewoman fights to win the heart of her love from the past. The story takes place in a fictional continent based on historic Korea. The webtoon is perhaps most notable for its beautiful art. The story itself is inspired by both Shakespeare's Twelfth Night and Lee Seung Hwan's song and video A Request.
