By Minsoo Kang related texts under the different titles of Story of Queen Min (Min jungjeon jeon), Record of the Virtue of Queen Min (Min jungjeon deokhang rok), and Record of the Virtue of Queen Inhyeon (Inhyeon wanghu seongdeokhaeng rok), which are collectively referred to as The Story of Queen Inhyeon (Inhyeon wanghu jeon). They tell the story of the second queen to the nineteenth ruler of the Joseon dynasty King Sukjong (r. 1674-1720), especially in the years from 1681, when she married the monarch, to 1701, when she died after a long illness. The centerpiece of the plot is her sudden loss of the king's favor and subsequent ouster from her position as queen in 1689, her sufferings that followed, and her equally sudden reinstatement as queen in 1694.
