The story of the week.


Here it goes.

5 years ago, when I was 21...

Becoming a vegetarian

was a maJor trend.

So I went on a vegetarian

camp for four days.

As soon as we arrived,

we took a walk.

The guide pointed to

a clover and said...

'We can eat this' and ate it.

Then a few people tried it.

It tasted strange and bitter.

But we thought it was

a good experience.

But they wouldn't

give us any food.

When we asked at night

why there's no food...

He said, 'Didn't you eat

the plants during the walk?'

- Who? Who?

- What!

The darn guide said!

'Didn't you eat the grass

on our walk?'

Let go!

Co-producer Seok-bin JANG

Help me!


How many times did I tell you?

Low-income families can

get up to $30,000

But you have no income,

so the maximum is $20,000

But you said I could

I already moved.

That was the maximum.

Anyway, we can't lend you $30,000

so borrow it from someone.

If I could, why would

I ask for a loan?

Then move to a different place.

But I paid the deposit

and moved my stuff in!

So, try borrowing

from someone else.

Who' d lend money to

a single, old woman!

You should've made sure

before signing the lease.

But you said I could

have the money!

I never said that!


Hello? Stop calling, please.

I'll be out for a sec

If the manager asks for me...

Please leave now, ma'am.

Next Counter Please.

I'm working.

Sorry, but you're

always so busy.

And you never write back

Can't you come for a visit?

I gotta go.

They can't see me for sure?

Of course Strictly confidential.

They look about right.

You're right.

Excuse me?

The victim's friends saw them

bothering her at a nightclub.

Isn't that all you need?

But they didn't witness the assault

That's why we need your statement.

But, I didn't get a good

look at theirfaces.

But, I didn't get a good

look at theirfaces.

Just try to remember.

It's them, but we have no proof.

Sergeant CHOI!

Sorry, ma'am.

- He doesn't have the ring

- A ring?

Yes One of them had

a ring with a skull on it.

The doctor said it

looked like a ring, too.

But it's hard to tell the shape

on multiple wounds.

Don't contact me anymore.

- But if you remember...

- Then I'll call you.

But unlikely.

You bastards!

Why won't you admit it! You did it!

I'll kill all you bastards!

- Please tell me everything!

- Please!

You said you saw them.

Please tell me everything!

You saw them!

You saw them!

Please, say what happened!

You saw them! Please!

Let's not meet again

I got real scary buddies.

F***ing up a b*tch ain't nothing.

- Did they say anything to you?

- No.

Would you like to

go inside and talk?


- You're back

- She's still here?

Everything's set

Have your landlord sign this.

Thank you very much!

Thank you so much Thank you!

What happened?

- What did you tell the manager?

- I didn't say anything about you.

Ji-soo, you talk as if

I made a mistake.

Of course not ljust

felt so bad for her.

Are you close with the manager?

Or close with all your male superiors?

Be careful.

There's a limit to how far a flirt

can go in the financial world.

old man chewing on?

Don't know?

It's called bozo leaf Cuz you

We wrote that there.

Your grandpa got mad like hell.


Go on Say hello

to mama's friend.

Come here

What's your name?

Yeon-hee don't know

how to act around others.

What grade is she in?

She's 10, but she

doesn't go to school.

I want to send her.

But Man-jong and his aunt

don't think girls need schooling.

Said, if she gets educated,

she'll run away from us.

Who doesn't send kids to

elementary school these days?

They even send kids to study

abroad in kindergarten.


I hope I can send her

to school next year.

She goes to the school

to read books these days.

So I was wondering...

It's been 15 years since

grandpa passed away.

How's this place so clean?

Take a guess.

I spent three whole days

cleaning this place.

Thanks you were saying?


You were going to say

something about Yeon-hee?

It's nothing You just got here.

You must be starving

I'll go get some food.

I'm going night fishing

with Yeon-hee.

- Really?

- Yup.

You always come

back empty-handed.

You love going

fishing with papa?

- Lazy-head not sleepin'?

- You're back?

Was it fun?

Did ya catch anything?

How can an islander

be so bad at fishin'?

You caught no fish

for over 2 weeks.

Why, so you can pig

out if I do catch 'em?

Not only me Yeon-hee, you,

and that brother of yours.

Didn't I tell you to show respect

talking about me and my family?

Even dogs and pigs learn

if they get beaten Why not you!

You a dog?

Don't eat on the floor.

This is why you need

a man around.

Even a dozen women

Can't do that.

Damn right.

Nephew? Can you fix

our shed afterthis?


- How about our door?

- Sure.

Do it yourself.

My nephew's dying

doing all the work.

Damn right.

He can't die

Without him, we're all dead.

Damn right!

What you doing?

Don't just sit there

Make some noodles.

- Yes, ma'am

- Finish that up, first.

Yes, ma'am.

Let her rest,

she must be tired.

It's nothing compared

to men's work.

What's KIM's granddaughter up to?

Still sleepin'

Damn woman still in bed

in broad daylight.

Seoul life must be really hard.
