You think this is your home?


What's with you?

This isn't your living room.

- Shit.

- Don't act like...

I can't believe this.

Why'd you get so drunk?

You're lucky that

Chief went easy on you,

otherwise you'd have gone

straight to prison.

Why did you beat your child?

Who did?


Don't beat your kid.

Child abuse by parents is a crime.

Last night, you were caught in the act.

What the f*ck.

I can't discipline my own daughter?

How dare you speak

to the chief that way?

Go, you've been warned.

- Hey.

- Get out of here.


Get out.

Give me a ride.

You brought me here, so take me back.

Take me back.

Take him.

That girl isn't

Yong-ha's real daughter.

But he's been raising her

and sending her to school.

He drinks every so often

and gets a bit deranged.

But he takes care of

everything around town.

This town would not run

properly without him.

So we should allow him

to abuse his child?

That's not what I'm saying.

Alcohol is the problem.

Sun Dohee!

Come over here.

How often does your father

hit you like that?

Are you mute?

Why don't you talk?

You can't let him beat you

that way.

He doesn't hit me

when he doesn't drink.

- Dohee.

- Yes?

When an adult hits a child,

it's a very bad thing.

If someone beats you that hard,

you need to tell someone, okay?


Is it okay if I try the hat on?


If you're gonna do it,

do it right. Like this.

You fucking little bitch!

How dare you stand there blabbering?

Come here, you filthy mutt.

Damn bitch.

Stop right there!

You no good fucking bitch,

got no respect.

Stop babbling, you fucker!


You dirty little bitch.

Did you know the alumni association

was called because of you?

Investigations have been started,

a lot of people are in hot water.

I'm sorry.
