Meanwhile the presidential election is coming up, Haeju’s younger brother Daesung shows up and she feels a bad sign from him because Daesung works for Taehwa Kim who is running for the election.
Haeju is a descendant of a very famous shaman family. Her grandmother was also a shaman who changed the course of the election by doing the exorcism and was killed with Haeju’s parents by the politicians that were on the other side who wanted revenge.
An anchorman named Younghan who is former reporter has been watching Haeju for so long, and traces Taehwa Kim for a long time and finally finds out how dirty he is.
Meanwhile Taehwa Kim comes to visit Haeju asking for the exorcism that could possibly make himself elected for the president, but Haeju feels a real bad sign from him and that gets her health worse.
Later on, Younghan’s endless trace drives Taehwa Kim to fall to the end.
Haeju finally finds herself a peace of mind. She does her last dance (exorcism) for her death to come and passes away like a butterfly flying away.
