The story is basically a Korean version of Cinderella, a young girl (Kongji) ends up having to live with her mean stepmother and stepsister (Patji). She is basically treated like a slave until some magical animals and an angel help change her fortunes. After a series of event she meets a prince and lives happily ever after. Of course this is just a very basic overview and other things happen in the story.
