SynopsisThe male-female reversal of fortunes all began here… in the Edo period under the rule of third-generation Tokugawa shogun, Iemitsu. An epidemic illness affecting only men and boys has thinned the male population to one-quarter that of females. Iemitsu himself falls ill and succumbs to the plague, sparking a crisis of succession within the Tokugawa family. This prompts head lady of the court, Kasuga-no-Tsubone, to find a born-out-of-wedlock daughter of Iemitsu, disguise her as a boy and secretly groom her in the palace’s inner palace as Iemitsu. When she turns 16, Kasuga-no-Tsubone coerces the handsome Buddhist priest, Arikoto, visiting from Kyoto to serve the girl heir Iemitsu as her page. Arikoto ends up unable to resist Kasuga-no-Tusbone’s pressure and laicizes himself and his young pupil, Gyoku, to enter into the service of the inner palace. The result is a female shogun and 3,000 handsome male attendants, all entwined in the intrigue, jealousies and pure love drama of Edo castle.
모든 남녀역전은 여기서부터 시작되었다. 에도시대, 3대장군 도쿠카와 이에야스 시대, 사내아이에게만 걸리는 역병이 대유행하여 일본의 남자 인구가 여자의 4분의 1까지 감소되었다. 이에야스 자신도 이 병에 걸려 일찍 죽고 만다. 도쿠가와집안의 혈통이 끊어 지는 것을 걱정한 가스카노 쓰보네는 이에미쓰가 밖에서 낳은 소녀에게 남장을 시켜 에도성 오오쿠에서 조용히 장군으로 키운다. 그 소녀가 16세가 된 무렵 가스카노 쓰보네는 교토에서 온 미모의 승려 아리코토를 보고 첫눈에 반해 억지로 장군 이에미쓰의 시중 이 되도록 강요한다. 고심끝에 가스카노의 위헙에 진 아리코토는 자신의 제자인 교쿠에이라는 어린시중과 함께 환속하여 오오쿠를 받들게 된다. 장군은 여자, 그를 받드는 미남 3000명. 에도성에 소용돌이치는 책략과 질투, 순애보가 드라마틱하게 그려진다!
