Chae-yoon and Young-joon played a little more and then lay down on the mat, panting.

Jo Sung-hyun looked at Chae-yoon, who was lying on his legs, for a while and smiled.

"One can really see how much you love Chae-yoon. She's so cute when you take care of her. I guess daughters are nice."

"She's my daughter."

"Oh, come on. I sometimes find my son annoying."

Jung Mi-won shook her head slightly and said in a playful voice.

Young-joon opened his eyes slightly and looked at his mom.

"I know. I know."

Jung Mi-won smiled and covered Young-joon's eyes with her hand.

Young-joon looked at Jung Mi-won once with his eyes slightly open and closed his eyes again.

Jo Sung-hyun felt a novelty in their relationship, which was a bit different from his and Chae-yoon's.

"The kids must be hungry. Shall we get up now? If we go for about 30 minutes? 40 minutes to the other side, there will be a place where we can eat."

At Yu Jae-kyun's words, Jo Sung-hyun and Jung Mi-won got up from their seats at the same time.

He put Chae-yoon in the child seat and ran again.

Chae-yoon clung to Jo Sung-hyun's back and hugged him with her arms that didn't reach.

He felt her giggling and laughing, and Jo Sung-hyun couldn't help but snicker.

How long did he run like that?

A place where anyone could see that they could eat appeared.

It was a place where they could boil ramen on the spot, and Jo Sung-hyun didn't have much experience of boiling it himself.

Chae-yoon also looked around with curiosity.

"What kind of ramen do you want to eat, Chae-yoon?"

At Jo Sung-hyun's words, Chae-yoon hesitated and opened his mouth.

"Not spicy...?"

At that, Jo Sung-hyun showed her seolleongtang ramen. [T/N: Ox bone soup based which is bland in flavor]

It looked white and not spicy, and Chae-yoon nodded her head.

After putting the ramen in a container and boiling it.

They went up to the second floor of the building and ate together.

"Whew. Whew."

Chae-yoon blew on the ramen and carefully put it in her mouth.

Jo Sung-hyun checked that Chae-yoon was eating well and started his own meal.

Young-joon looked at Chae-yoon from time to time while eating, and Chae-yoon was humming a song as if she was happy.

It wasn't Yumi's new song, or the 'Do you want to play with the fallen leaves with me?' that she played the piano with Jo Sung-hyun.

She was humming the old songs that were playing here, at least 15, 20 years old.

"Wow... I haven't heard this song in a long time. How does Chae-yoon know them all?"

Jung Mi-won looked at Chae-yoon with curiosity.

Jo Sung-hyun wondered how to explain, but Yu Jae-kyun and Jung Mi-won interpreted it themselves.

"His dad's job is related to music. She must have had a lot of opportunities to listen."

"Oh, right. That makes sense."

Jo Sung-hyun just smiled awkwardly and opened his mouth.

He wanted to ask the questions he wanted to ask earlier.

"Jae-kyun, I have some questions I want to ask you."

"Oh, yes. Go ahead."

"My Chae-yoon plays the piano a little."

"Piano is good."

Yu Jae-kyun nodded and responded.

Chae-yoon tilted his head and looked at Jo Sung-hyun when she was mentioned.

"But she's very good at it... If she wants to do music properly at her age, what's the best thing to do?"

"Well... If it's piano, the first thing to do is to aim for the art middle school."

"Art middle school?"

"Yes. Actually, it's the best way to walk the royal road from a young age. Art middle school, art high school, art college. That's the most common and standard way to go to graduate school."


Jo Sung-hyun nodded his head slightly.

The most standard way.

That word echoed in Jo Sung-hyun's ears.

Of course, he thought that was the most normal and good way.


'Is Chae-yoon's talent, a common talent?'

He could say for sure.

Chae-yoon's talent was not common.

It was not ordinary.

It was an overwhelming talent.

He was not very interested in classical music, but he still studied music to some extent, and he had quite a few instruments he could play.

He knew very well that Chae-yoon's talent was not just a good level of talent.

As he was thinking that.

Yu Jae-kyun continued to speak.

"But if it were me... I would have prepared my child for a concour, no matter what. A concour is always helpful. Even if you don't win, it's an experience, and the more stages you go through, the more experience your child will accumulate and develop. Of course, there are also children who suffer a lot of failures and hardships in the process... But I still think that doing as many concours as possible is helpful."

Yu Jae-kyun said.

Jo Sung-hyun's eyes lit up at his words.

It would be nice for Chae-yoon to go to an art middle school and learn piano at an art high school, but....

Jo Sung-hyun thought that might not be so good for Chae-yoon.

He might be thinking too much as a dad, but still, as a person who had some musical opinions, he evaluated it coldly.

'School might be a way to confine Chae-yoon.'

That wouldn't do.

He had to help Chae-yoon to show her talent as much as he wanted, and to do what she wanted to do.

And in that respect, a concour was a very good means.

He didn't have to confine or control his child, as long as she went to a concour.

He thought it would be nice to try a concour once if he had a chance.

Then Chae-yoon spoke to him.


"Yes, Chae-yoon."

"What is a concour?"

The child asked.
