Song Na Yeong (29 years old, Female) –Eugene Kim
: University Graduate. First time mom. Single Mother
She is happy being a woman!Why?Because she will be a mom!But she feels unsecure about her child.
She seemed to have a momentary relapse in her mind. Worried about her husband’s condition, she tried to forgot about it for a moment by drinking a glass of soju but she accidentally threw away her baby’s powdered milk (formula).She uses the same towel that she used to clean her baby’s diaper to clean her baby’s face. When she feels bad and sings lullaby to her baby.She has zero cooking skill. So what is the reason she is cooking with all her heart?
Actually even she herself doesn’t want to eat it and throw it away.“My daughter, I’m sorry. This is only the beginning. There is a chance that I’ll get better!”
But she feels resentful at her situation. She especially loves her daughter the most more than anybody else.She may not be an extraordinary woman (but) she is a cute& loveable woman that people want to take care of.She is a woman who tells joke and is playful all day long, and her optimism is unparalleled!
She is someone who has a lot of talent, but she is having trouble finding work because she has a child. She finally succeeded in getting employment by telling a lie that she is single.She completely doesn’t know her field of work so she studies it until she has a nosebleed.She was having trouble juggling between trying to be a good mother and raising a child when she accidentally discovered a new talent and became the apartment plan consultant.
Han Soo Hyeon (32 years old, Male) – Jo Hyun Jae
: Seong Min’s friend. Asset/Fund Manager at a Securities company.
My dream is to be the in the 1% richest men in Korea.I’m the most successful out of my friends but I still have a long way to go.Neat and tidy. When things start to pile up, he gets to cleaning immediately.Dislikes messy women and women who can’t come on time.Na Yeong represents this.
Other things that I don’t like : people with no money and people that come asking for money. Na Yeong represents this.I am interested in money, my bank book fund earning rate is top secret.Messy trash. Really bad. Parking in the rain. Also really bad.Disposable Diaper prices. Shockingly bad.I have no interest in environmental matters, I’ve used exactly a thousand diapers.I recently changed diapers and I had to keep on wiping my hands. She (the baby) spilled cookie crumbs on the seat, picked it up and threw it to the window. On one rainy day she tore a part of a newspaper.
The biggest expense: The opportunity to be with the daughter of a wealthy man. An investment for one person.I have to be broad minded.I had to wait one hour for a wealthy man’s daughter, I had to force myself to smile. He’s the most successful of his friends and has a lot of money, yet still stingy.Calculating person, always calculating in his head. But he is not a bad person.He is kind inside, hardworking, and he is not a heartless person.He can be a bit stubborn. He can endure shame for his desire.His dream is to have a perfect marriage, a perfect family, be a perfect dad, and be a perfect husband.
Choi Kwang Hee (32 years old, Male) – Jae Hee
: Seong Min’s friend. Manhwa (comic book) author.
Do not like women who want to get married.Hates babies!He wears old fashioned training pants, slippers (but still) known as a “Pretty Boy”.He appears to be a lonely man for some reason. But actually if he listens to his head/mind, it says “Should I eat Shin Ramyun, or should I eat Neoguri Udon?”
Those are some of the strange things that we can expect him to say.His fashion sense is very interesting. He has 20 pairs of shoes.Every week he gets facial treatment.He understands trend and what’s popular by using a male magazine as a guide.He buys brand name items on impulse. He is a member of a hotel spa. He has trouble with stopping his extravagant spending.His dream is to own a Harley Davidson motorcycle.Why? Because of the brand!He uses money like water. It is too bad that he is wasting his own time.
As an artist, he draws by himself only when he feels horrible/unhappy (Sorry not sure about this sentence).But the comic that he draws aren’t interesting, people won’t even read it in the toilet.Actually he doesn’t have money.Things he dislikes: The cry of a baby. Women who are clingy.Are of expertise: the mystery of the woman’s world.Playboy? No.
There’s only Park Ae Joo for him. He has met this one woman in 2 strange occasions, and he only waits for her and not other women. Being a man with sense of responsibility — that’s the cool thing right now.When he is happy he isn’t very responsible with doing his work.Money. When I make money, mom can live with me. That way my mom can live happily.
I don’t watch to snatch my mom’s happiness away, therefore , I open my arm today. (I’m guessing he meant since he doesn’t have money now he can’t do anything yet?? )
Na Hwang Kyeong Tae (32 years old, Male). Shin Sung-Rok
: Seong Min’s friend. Police Detective. Became a successful senior police officer in 4 years.
He wants to get married and have kids.But why do women dislike policemen!
He looks like a new generation detective and has a nice body.He buttons his shirt to the last button.
Whenever a sexy woman approaches, his heart starts beating really fast and his hands start trembling and locking himself in the handcuffs.When he meets up with a woman he is always worried about his foot smell making him unable to continue.Detectives are ignorant and really hate bias views… really ignorant.
He has no time to eat dinner when he is out to catch criminals, when is there time to read books?
He is good natured and innocent. He is always interested in what people have to say and is good at stenography.
He is very confident in himself when it comes to his strength. But when it comes to his brainpower…
He wears a beat-up pair of shoes and has severe case of smelly feet.He also has a bad case of athlete’s foot.
He always wears white socks. He sticks with this even when he is wearing suits.He comes to a scrap yard and drives off in a car that is about to be demolished.He puts things that people throw away in the back seat of the car.He stores a baseball bat in the trunk of his car and a manual of detectives (I’m not too sure about the manual)
He is someone that people can be proud of. He received the 13 seals of being a good police officer. He is also at the top of his profession, making a salary of 40,000,000 won.He is not satisfied with the 30,000 won ‘danger allowance money’.Detectives should have a more expensive life insurance policy.
He dreams of promotion. It’s difficult for him to pass the examination for a promotion right now.He respects his mom the most in this world. Why? Because she is his mom.Therefore despite his father’s opposition, he puts in his mom’s surname in front of his name making it officially Na Hwang Kyeong Tae.
