The Slave Hunters follows the story of Lee Dae Gil, a man of high birth whose family was ruined when Won Ki Yoon, a slave, burnt down his house and escaped with his sister, Un Nyun, who was in love with Dae Gil. Driven by his desire for revenge, he survived his harsh years on the street and made his name as a slave hunter, dedicated in his pursuit to find Un Nyun, his first and only love. Song Tae Ha is a General of the Army who became a slave after being falsely accused of a crime he did not commit, and finds himself on the run from Dae Gil’s relentless pursuit.

Set during the Joseon Dynasty, “Chuno” revolves around the world of slave hunters (known as “Chuno Ggun”) and slaves (known as “Nobi”). The slaves were sometimes born into the system of servitude and other times became slaves as a punishment for a crime. In the drama series “Chuno,” a slave hunter (Jang Hyuk) attempts to track down one such runaway slave (Oh Ji-Ho). The runaway slave became a nobi after being falsely accused of a crime he did not commit. While the slave hunter tracks down the runaway slave, he also seeks out the woman he loves (Lee Da-Hae).
