The story starts out with a modern day woman, Chu Yu, waking up and seeing five scantily clad young men in her bed. She does what any girl would do, and starts screaming, she wakes up the men and kicks them out of her room. She then realizes that her spirit had traveled back in time and taken over the body of a young princess of the Liu Song Dynasty, the Princess Shanyin, Liu Chu Yu.
This Princess Shanyin was notorious for telling her brother, Liu Zi Ye, the Emperor Qianfei of Southern Qi, that they were born of the same father, yet just because they were of different genders, Liu Zi Ye could have many lady consorts while she could only have one Prince Consort. Liu Zi Ye loved his sister deeply and immediately gifted her with thirty mianshou, or male concubines.
