- You made all this?

- I prepared plenty

for you to take home.

Not sure about the taste though.

- Thank you!

- Please, try some.

Aren't you a happy man?

I'm so excited

that I could die.

I haven't seen my brother

for almost 6 months.

That must be him.

He arrived early.

You left the middle school coaching job

that I hooked you up with.

I didn't leave voluntarily.

The school shut down

the track team.

And the electric blanket venture

went under.

Something about harmful

electromagnetic fields...

You suck at everything

except running.

You should have called me.

Didn't think you'll want to

hear from me.

Since you were forced to leave

because of us.

Let me cut to the chase.

I want you to work for me

as a pacemaker again.

Pardon me?

There is an Olympic hopeful

called Yun-gi

but his first 30km is a mess.

I'm too old to wipe

some kid's ass.

Besides I can't run like before.

I've been retired for years now.

You could go to the Olympics.

If only you would trust me.

I'm paying him 500 bucks a month

but the business has been bad.

And every month...

- He...

- Talking about me?

Long time! I missed you.

I've been cooking

all morning...

Every month what?

That I'm working hard and

saving up every month.

You should look for

a real job.

I can help you

with the money until...

Don't be silly!

I'm doing fine here.

Please, don't pay attention to

what he says.

Shall we get going then?

Long time, Seong-ho.

- Jong-su?

- Yes, sir.

Will you keep pretending

that I'm not here?

Good bye, sir.

- Keep in touch.

- Yes, sir.

What does he want?

We're late. Let's go.

Mom, dad and grandma!

We all came to see you.

Seong-ho, pour them a drink.

Shit! The rain.

Out of the blue!

It's been long, hasn't it?

Hey, do you remember the sports day
