Jesters: The Game Changers is about Deok-ho and his gang make ends meet by racketeering around the country. Han Myeong-hoe, King Sejo’s right-hand man, thinks highly of their talents and encourages them to work for the country. Funded by the government, Deok-ho and his men use more theatrical and sophisticated devices to create incredible events, such as a pine tree lifting its branches by itself, sweet rain falling from heaven, and rainbows forming wherever King Sejo goes.

Performing all over the country, clowns reenact true stories about King Sejo (Park Hee-Soon) and six martyred ministers. These six martyred ministers were executed by King Sejo, because they did not acknowledge him as the King. This was due to King Sejo killing his nephew who was the King at that time.

Because of the performances, citizens all over the country criticize and ridicule King Sejo. To improve the image of King Sejo, the most powerful man in the country Han Myung-Hee (Son Hyun-Joo) selects 5 members of a clown performance team. The group is led by Deok-Ho (Cho Jin-Woong) and includes Hong-Chil (Ko Chang-Seok), Geun-Deok (Kim Seul-Gi), Jin-Sang (Yoon Park) and Pal-Poong (Kim Min-Suk). Han Myung-Hee orders the clowns to perform stories favorable to King Sejo.
