To Doo-young who lost his parents in an accident as a teenager and had to fend for himself since then, the news of Doo-shik coming home is an extra stress to deal with. He's barely adjusting to the fact that he is now blind for the rest of his life but now he has to deal with his swindler brother.
Although hesitant at first, Doo-young slowly eases up to his older brother, who gradually takes charge and helps him adjust to his disability.
