Ghost island Taiwan vs. Hell Korea. The Taiwanese-Korean Mixed-blood high school boy LEE Gwang-yong is now stuck in the middle. Born and raised in Korea, he is often bullied and insists on not speaking Chinese language. He regards himself as Korean. Back home, Gwang-yong faces his father who has been working on fighting the rights and interests for Hwagyo (overseas Chinese). From time to time, the father teaches him in Chinese that “don’t lose your root”. Despite the pressure in life, there is still a girl who does not care the identity of Gwang-yong. She touches his heart and lets him temporarily stay away from the dilemma of identity. At the time when Gwang-yong was striving for overseas scholarship, an accident suddenly came, leaving his family lost. The inaccurate watch can still be mended, and how should Gwang-yong reorganize the disordered life?
