en he got drunk.


It was also common to see violence.
Her uncle did not hit A-rin, his daughter, but hit Se-ha instead.
He often grabbed hold of her hair when she was studying.


No one in her family or acquaintances was strong enough to stop her uncle.
So when the whole family sensed that he was out drinking, they would hurriedly disperse and return wretchedly while walking on eggshells.


“Ah…Well, you have to take care of family issues amongst yourselves.
Public authorities can’t interfere with household issues.”


Ironically, her uncle was a police.
His father was a police officer before him.
She tried once or twice to report him, but the police quietly covered it up or even made false evidence.
Se-ha lost the will to fight back.


Recently, he was suspended after being reported to have committed corruption by taking bribes.
Since then, the violence had only gotten worse.


So why did her aunt stay with him? The fact was that she had as many problems as him.


Her aunt fell deep into numerous superstitions, saying that Se-ha’s mother and father died at such a young age because they took the wrong tomb of their ancestors.
She spent his entire fortune several times, pursuing shamanic beliefs such as pseudo-religion, pyramid schemes, and exorcism did by shamans daily.


“Se-ha…Who else would I come to for this? What would your uncle say if he found out? He’ll just take it out on you… Help me just this once.
You’ll do it, right?”


Se-ha graduated from the Department of Business Administration and Economics at Korea University with the highest grades.
The academic scholarships she received every semester, the scholarships sent by anonymous donors who said it was special to be so smart, and the money she earned through tutoring while splitting her time to study were all stolen by her aunt.


Immediately after graduating, she got a job at Korea’s highest-paying Myeong Hwa Group though the work was much harder than anywhere else, she worked day and night for five years as a secretary for the owner’s family, with twice the annual salary and an incentive of 1,000% of the base salary.


She couldn’t afford to spend any money, so of course she should have saved the money.
If she had just let it pile up, the amount accumulated would have been equal to a deposit for a small apartment in Seoul.


But the aunt asked for money each time as if it were quite normal.
“You are our daughter.” It was plain that she only said that when she asked for money, and did not think of her as family.
In the end, there was not a single penny left.
Sometimes when she refused to give money, her aunt’s eyes would blaze in anger and get worked up.


“Do you know how much I had to sacrifice for you? And you can’t even do this for me? Huh? Are you looking down on us, despite the fact that we’re the ones who paid for your education? You would have gotten nowhere without us.”


She would rather hand over the money than hear anything of the sort for days on end.
It wouldn’t change a thing.


“Honestly, my mother ended up like that, it was when my uncle and aunt died.
So Se-ha, you are responsible.
It’s not wrong to say you’re their daughter
