Then he started to wander around streets, lost in memories and shed tears of regret. Kim Tan got home, but still had no self control and couldn’t hold back his tears. He cried in frond of his father and also in the darkness of his own room. At the end of the episode, he got involved a friction with a passerby and punch on. He fell on the street and had tears of resignation in his eyes.
