[ Prologue ]

“At that time, when I think of the father image of the past, the first thing that comes to mind is
patriarchal, uncommunicative,
It means living through all the pain and suffering alone.
However, the character Heo Sam-gwan was not like that, so it was even more attractive.
Talking like a child and a friend,
Sometimes he gets angry, sometimes he gets angry, and he shows his temper.
came new
Perhaps he is not the ideal father even in this day and age.”

– Ha Jung-woo as Heo Sam-gwan
