Oh, hi.

I bet you had a hard time

being a judge

Seems like Professor Kim

made it harder for you.

No, I enjoyed it.

How come this painting

didn't get awarded?

People talk about it

Even if he copied it,

he's still very talented.

I think he had help.

But what if he had

really done it all alone?

Then he's a genius,

and he'll be praised elsewhere.

There's a booklet

of the drawings.

I'll go get it,

so please wait here.

Did you eat dinner?

I ate with the students

after the awards ceremony.

Where's dad?

Working in his workroom.

- Want some tea?

- Sure, I'll go change first.

Why are you giving me

that look?

What look are you

talking about?

You've got something to say,

so tell me.

No, I was just thinking

that you're so pretty

Come on, tell me.

If you promise me

that you're not gonna be mad

Are you having an affair

or something like that?


Fine, you're not

Don't get mad at me

Just tell me.

I won't get mad.

What if we...

No, never mind.

What is it?

Is it about a baby?

Are you saying adoption?

How'd you know?

That's the only issue

you hesitate to bring up to me

If you cheated on me,

you'd never bring it up

I'm not saying

we should adopt a child

I just want us to give

it a thought

You know it's not

our own decision.

Dad said he'll

leave it up to us.

You've already

discussed it with him?

It just came up during dinner.

Frankly, I wanted to know

his opinion about it

What's wrong?

If you've decided already,

why'd you beat around the bush?

You don't need to ask my opinion

All you have to do

is bring the kid.

Go right ahead.

Why are you saying like that?

I didn't say anything wrong

My job in this family is

to raise a kid

that you and your father

bring home

And that makes me

a nanny of your heir

Good for you

You'll get somebody

to do your memorial service

Take a seat

Are you working on a new project?


I'm just going through

my old works

They feel different now

I guess I'm still

attatched to them

I always am

It's always refreshing and gratifying

if you look

at it with affection,

whether it's yours or not

All that matter is

how much you care about it,

whether it's art work or person

I believe in both of you

You two will have more days

to spend with a child than me.

Sorry to keep you waiting.

Please sit down.

I bet you have a art teacher here


No, we just let children draw

what they want

You mean, that boy drew

that tree by himself?

He loves trees so much,

he always sits alone

and keeps drawing them

Is this your first adoption




May I talk with him?

What's this?

There's a bug on a tree

Isn't he too old for us?

I feel strange

It feels like that I've

been waiting for him

Doesn't it count most?

Jin-sung, you really likes trees

Let mommy help you

'LEE Jin-sung'

Jin-sung, don't you remember

what I taught you

What's your new family name now?

Lee, Jin-sung

How many times did I tell you

that it's "Kim" Jin-sung?

You're Kim, Jin-sing, got it?


I'll knit you something nice,

so stand up.

Good boy.

Now raise your head.

This tree asked those ants to come

Those ants are protecting

this arcacia tree

If there's any animals or insects

that harass the tree,

they attack them and

chase them away

This tree used to have fragrance

and sometimes we got some honey

For some reason, it's been years

since the last time

it had leaves and flowers

It's because

that thing is hurting it.

Then let's make it feel better.

Can you go get the red toolbox

from my workroom?

It won't hurt anymore.

You must be cold without leaves.

I wish you had leaves.

Does the tree understand you?

What are you drawing?

What's this?




Know what this is?

I bought this for you

Come check it out.

Rock, paper, scissors!

Rock, paper, scissors!

That's not fair!

Rock, paper, scissors.

I said rock.

It feels like you're pinching me

Say grandmother.

Honey, I'm sure that

you can do it, right?

His teacher said that

his IQ is very high for his age

Why does he hold on

to that nasty bug?

You know kids are kids

I used to catch worms

and play with them.

Don't you remember?

I hardly remember

Want to go to your room?

He's cute, huh?

Did you really put him

on the family register?

Why do you keep asking me

same question?

What's that?

Hold on to it.

I got it from

a famous fortune teller.

Always carry it with you.

I know a lot of women

who had kids over forty.

Please stop.

Don't come here

if you want to act like this

You're too young

to give up already.

You can't deny that

blood is thicker than water




Jin-sung, what's wrong?

Did something happen?

Where are you going?

I can't believe it.

How could she say that

in front of him?

It's an Acacia leaf.

Since the tree is sick and weak,

hang it on the tree often.

So that it won't be lonely.

Who are they?

Mommy and daddy.

Where are you, Jin-sung?

Kim Jin-sung is drawing this.

I'm sorry I was mad at you

Mommy was wrong.

I'll hang this on you everyday

until you get well.

I hope you get better soon.



Wait right there.

I'm Min-jee.

You're Jin-sung, right?

How'd you know my name?

I can hear everything

from your porch.

How old are you?


I'm older than you.

I'm eight.

You always talk to this tree.

Does it talk back?

Don't you go to school?


Why not?

Cause I don't have

enough blood

Know what a vampire is?

That's what I am.

You better be careful.

Can you ride that well?


where are you going?

Wait for me.

I'll be with you from now on.

You're now a vampire, too.

What was her name?


Looks like they're having fun

That's great




Mi-sook never expected it.

She's kind of stunned

What are you talking about?

It's a blessing

She's supposed to be

happy about it

Did you do this?

To burn the fan?

Just leave it alone.

I'll clean this up after I change

Jin-sung, don't worry.

Having a new baby won't

change anything

You know how much I love you

You can't help your

maternal instinct

You can't help falling in love

with your own baby

Besides, you have a baby boy

Mother, please.

My sweet baby,

it's time for your formular

Let's take a picture

of Hae-sung.

Mother, look this way.

Hae-sung, it's daddy.



Here I go.

One, two...

Hae-sung, look at daddy.

Over here.

One, two...

Why don't you

sit down with Hae-sung?

Okay, good.

One, two...

My boy Jin-sung.

Let's take one of you, too.

Come on Jin-sung,

look at daddy.

Jin-sung, good.

Okay, one, two...

Don't cry.

Jin-sung, stop that!
