Sungju, was living a very good life because his dad was bringing in a good income so it made Sungju's and his moms life very easy.
Sungju's father was a successful military officer until he made a mistake and the people of North Korea banished him and his family to a village for away.
A little bit after the family got banished from North Korea, The North Korea Famine started, so both Sangju's mom and dad left to search for food and supplies and never came back, so he was left by himself in this new land.
Sunju's parents left to go try and find food, but neither of them came back so he decided that he needed to leave as well so he can live buy himself.
When Sunju left to go in search of food he ended joining a gang of street kids that are all orphans or abandoned by their parents.
This gang of street kids that Sunju joined steal the food and clothing that they get because they do not have the money to buy the items that they need.
