He was general military fighting for his country; however, he was cursed to become an immortal for him to witness and experience pain through the passing of his loved ones. He can only be freed once he finds the Goblin's Bride named Eun Tak (Kim Go Eun). Only she has the power to take the sword out of his chest so that he can be free from immortality.
