What Happened In Yona Of The Dawn Season 1?

The only Princess of Kouka Kingdom, Yona’s life was like a bed of roses until everything had gone wrong. She used to have a crush on his cousin Soo-Won, who later stabbed her father in the chest one night. By killing King II, he seemingly avenged his own father.

Son-Hak, the bodyguard and childhood friend of Yona saved her from the vengeance of Soo-Won. Yona’s servant Min-Soo sacrificed himself in order to give Yona and Hak a chance to escape from the palace. Yona became bewildered by the sudden events and by the deception of Soo-Won.

Hak’s grandfather Mundok directed Yona and Hak to search for the oracle who could tell the future of Kouka Kingdom. Soo-Won became the King eventually. 

And Yona accidentally found the oracle Ik-Soo in a hut where they were harbored by Yoon. He then told Yona the myth of the four dragon warriors and advised them to find the successors of the dragon warriors. Yoon joined them in their new journey. 

Yona and Hak were besieged by a group of archers after Yoon had disappeared. They took them to the village of Hakuryuu and the successor of White dragon warrior Kija recognized Yona as the Crimson dragon princess. Kija accompanied them in their quest as he had the ability to detect other dragon warriors.

In the village of Seiryuu, they located the descendant of the Blue dragon warrior when he saved Yona from a bad man. Yona named him Shin-Ah, which meant “moonlight”. Meanwhile, Soo-Won visited the ruler of the Earth clan and arranged a mock battle festival.

In the city Port Awa, Hak found the Green dragon warrior Jae-Ha. Later Shin-Ah and Jae-Ha rescued Yona and Yoon from a group of kidnappers. They finally found the Yellow dragon warrior Zeno though he seemed suspicious as he had no special ability. They started their journey back to the Kouka Kingdom, the next morning.
