I am 16 years old.

And I've never been to school.

Produced by LEE EUGENE

I spend most of my time reading books,

directed by E J-YONG

or writing on my computer.

I began writing about my parents some time ago.

"They looked into each other,"

"and kissed without hesitation."

Mom and dad had me when they were only 17.


Whoa, bravo.

It's nothing to be ashamed of, nor proud of.

Despite being only 17?

Not 27, they were kids.

Romeo and Juliet also fell in love at that age.

Youths in love, I'm so jealous.

Love in the spring, like a start

of their lives.

I pity the youths today.

Then again, they all do it too.

I bet your dad freaked out when he found out.

You won't...really have the baby?

I don't know.

You don't? Are you nuts?

- Mira!

- What?

I'm only 17!

We're the same age.

I really am stupid!

My family is poor, and no future either.

Uh yeah!

I don't even have a mom to help raise the kid.

If the word gets out,

we'll be high school dropouts!

How can we raise a child?!

My mom's a dropout too,

but did fine.

You call this fine?!

If you have the baby...

people will know we did it.

You okay with that?

- Dae-su.

- Yeah?

There's a bug that disguises itself

as bird shit

to survive.

So what?

You look pathetic like that bug.

Choi Mira, my mom.

Youngest of 6 siblings, with 5 brothers.

And my dad impregnated her.

- Stop right there!

- Why's he so fast?!


I'll fucking whip your ass!

Screw you! I'm not that stupid!

You're so fucking dead!

Get over here!

We sent you to school to study!

You're pregnant?! Let go of me!

Come here!

Get over here!

- Please stop!

- Out of my way!



Her nickname as a kid was 'Shit Princess'.

It's all thanks to my uncles' early education.


You had big bro when you were 17 too!

But that was...

Who's the father?! Tell me!

Say what?!

First warning!

He was out of bounds,

why am I getting a warning?!

You took bribes again?!

Shut the hell up!

Blue, out!

What?! Look at this blind f*ck!

Dae-su, stop!

Let go!

My dad, Han Dae-su.

Former taekwondo athlete and...

he became infamous in his town

for swing kicking his principal.

Son of bitch!

I didn't teach you,

swing kick for that purpose!

You idiot!

What? "Pregnant"?

I quit!

School, and you too! I don't need anything!

Say what?


Get back here!

I'll never ever come back!

Dad left home that day,

and never went back.


Mom, knock!

Yes, come in.


Don't wear hat inside.

Forget it.

- Took blood pressure pills?

- Yes.

- Rheumatic pills?

- I took them.

Stomach pills?

Mom, I'm used to it. I can take care of myself.

Any insulin shots left?

Enough for 2.

I'll have to get some more.

Come, dad bought ice slurry.

Ice slurry? Nice!

You love it that much?

- Come on.

- Okay.

Tae-yeon's even hotter now.

Suh-hyun's all grown up...

Don't eat it if your teeth ache.

Just rice cake chunks.

I'm fine.

- Ahreum?

- Yes?

What kind of music do you like?


Just wondering what my son likes.

Any music sang by hot girls.


Even our music taste is the same.

But as I grow older, I prefer sad music.

The saddest song in the world

is the one that goes with a drink.

So when you grow older...

Age wise...

Listen to sad songs while drinking, okay?



She's practically naked...

Honey, it's time.


Switch the channel!

It hurts!

Look, it's on!
