What is the plot of Bulgasal: Immortal Souls?

Over 600 years ago, Dan Hwal while working under the Joseon Dynasty as a military official is turned into a bulgasal, a mythical creature cursed with immortality that is forced to feed off human blood. Several hundred years later, Dan Hwal runs into Min Sang Woon, a former bulgasal, who was reincarnated as a human and fled into hiding, but her life of secrecy is now at threat. In the shadows, Ok Eul Tae, another bulgasal, has spent his immortal life acquiring wealth and uses his vast fortune to manipulate politicians, businessmen, and the media, making him one of the most powerful figures in Korea.
