3 Heartbreaking Moments From Our Blues Episode 8
In-gwon Cries for the First Time in Front of His Son
In-gwon used to be a gangster and hence he is tough, both mentally and physically. He left his gang due to a tragic incident that made him reconsider his life decisions. In-gwon’s mother always told him to stop being a thug and live a decent life but he was young and fierce and didn’t listen to anyone. One day, when In-gwon was running away from a gangster, he stumbled into his mother. While she tried to stop him, she got hit by a car and died. His wife also left him after that incident when Hyun was too young to understand anything.
After losing two from his close family, In-gwon couldn’t afford to lose Hyun too. He was an embarrassment to his mother and wife but he didn’t want to be the same for his son. He became a Sundae seller and raised Hyun in a decent environment. However, while fighting, Hyun said that his father is an embarrassment to him and it broke In-gwon. He collapsed from the stairs and refused to take treatment for diabetes. His efforts to live a decent life, all seemed to go in vain.
Hyun was angry at his father but now regrets speaking harshly to him. He waits for his dad at his shop in the rain.

While they both sat in the jail, In-gwon asked Ho-sik why is it that he hates him so much when he never wronged him and always helped him. Ho-sik tells him that it was because he called him Dirt-poor. In-gwon said that they were friends and called each other worse names than this. However, Ho-sik tells him that he was actually dirt-poor at that time and could only rely on In-gwon. His wife had left him and his daughter was starving.
