Bong-pil is the only child of a retired postal worker, in the third generation of only sons. He had to take the college entrance exam three times before passing and enrolling into university, and after graduation, he spent three years doing nothing, and now he’s on his third try “studying” for the civil servant exam. There was a brief stint where he started a cafe business, using the financial support of his father who had to go back to his post office job post-retirement in order to pay for the loan needed for his son’s startup capital.
However, within three months of opening, Bong-pil’s cafe went out of business. Now he lives a parasitic existence off the people around him, especially his parents who barely got him to agree to a humiliating promise to study for the civil servant exam. Known as the neighborhood bum, he’s set up a base camp at the local study hall, always going around in comfortable sweats.
