In the episode, Lee Dan A went to language school early in the morning. She works in a language school voluntarily so she could learn English for free. “I only have about 6 hours of sleep because of this. I’ll sleep after I die,” Lee And A said to herself.

However, she continued to receive unpleasant news. Her mother asked Dan A to pay her brother’s school fee because their house’s rent will rise. Lee Dan A rejected her mother’s request. In the midst of this frustrating situation, Lee Dan A’s image provided a sense of familiarity for the viewers.

The reason why Lee And A’s life was so hard was because her family suffered from debt. Lee Dan A left home, saying that she would not live like her mother. She was forced to give up on going to college.
