Ai! Tree-ear, did you hear? The Royal Emissary is coming to Ch'ulp'o!
I finally have talked to someone!
I'm sorry, but I have chosen potter Kang for the commission. But, if you use the same design, I will give you the commission.
Tree-ear watches Master Potter Min create pottery. Tree-ear admires pottery making and wants to do it as well. But, he is an orphan and he will never be able to make pots.
A Friend's Words
Tree-ear has never spoken to any other people other than Crane-man, Min, and Ajima. The Potters must prepare to impress the Emissary.
A Fatal Fall
The Emissary chooses Kang for the commission, but if Min brings a pot of the same design to Songdo he can take the the commission. But, Min is to old to bring the pots, so Tree-ear must do it for him.
An Orphan's home
Make sure to be home for dinner.
Due to the toduk-nom who robbed Tree-ear, both the vases were thrown off the cliff and broken. Tree-ear thought about jumping off, but Crane-man's words stopped him. Tree-ear later found a single shard of the vase to bring to Songdo.
Leaping into death is not the only way to show true courage.
A farmer with a large cart accidentally knocked Crane-man off the bridge. Crane-man died with the monkey, that Tree-ear made him, in his hand.
Min and Ajima are adopting Tree-ear. Ajima also gave Tree-ear a new name, it is Hyung-pil.
