Wan Deuk is a high school boy who lives with his hunchback father and has the unfortunate luck of having his high school homeroom teacher as his neighbor. Despite his dad’s diminutive size, Wan Deuk considers him to be the greatest man he knows. Wan Deuk has all the makings of a troublemaker: he gets bad grades and comes from a poor, underprivileged family. But when it comes to fighting, he hasnever lost about. With no hopes, dreams, and nothing to offer, there’s only one thing in this world that Wan Deuk prays for—the day that he can get rid of his homeroom teacher, neighbor, and incessant meddler Dong Ju. Wan Deuk can’t seem to get away from him; stuck with the man all day at school and beckoned to him at all hours of the night at home. As he does any other day, Wan Deuk stops by the neighborhood church and prays desperately for God to terminate Dong Ju.
Dong Ju is a one-of-a-kind high school educator whose pupils have cleverly nicknamed “Dung-Zoo.” He doesn’t feel the need to wake up sleeping students in study hall and only profanity seems to come out of his mouth. For some reason, he shows boundless interest in Wandeukyi, which tends to result in humiliation for the boy. Dong Ju exposes details of Wan Deuk’s family life to his classmates and even takes the food that Wan Deuk receives as government aid. Having Dong Ju barge in at night to drink with Wan Deuk’s father and uncle is nothing new for the poor boy. Then one day, Dong Ju meddles with his life by insisting that he meet his mother—a woman whose existence he himself had not known about. At his wit’s end, Wan Deuk even tries to run away from home. Unfortunately, it’s impossible for him to escape the ever-growing interest Dong Ju has in him.
