On March 7, 1997, after losing the election, former lawmakers who were engaged in hiking and fishing opened a restaurant called Harodongseon. Rumors spread that the restaurant was opened by politicians, and it is crowded with customers every day, but they realize that the business is not very easy. This is because various people, including a suspicious-looking monk, a man who looks like a spy, a big autistic child who resembles Ureme,and fussy Gangnam nouveau riche have begun to cross the threshold of the restaurant.

The Harodongseon comrades who opposed the three-party coalition and advocated the liquidation of three Kims, tried to return to the political front rather than run a restaurant ahead of the 1997 presidential election, leaving restaurant management behind the scenes. The protagonist, Kyeong Baek, is left alone to take care of the restaurant, but customers do not help. Just like politicians representing their respective places of origin, they fight day after day, exchanging loud voices, using regionalism and politics as a snack. Kyeong Baek begins a heated speech to customers and to the world about which direction democracy should move forward to.
