Today, Jo Sung-hyun arrived a little early to pick up Chaeyoon.

Nothing special was happening.

He had finished reading one book today and, finding it a bit awkward to start the next one, came out earlier than usual.

Arriving at the kindergarten, Jo Sung-hyun glanced inside the Sun class quietly.

And, he noticed a slightly different scene than usual.

It wasn't Chaeyoon but another child sitting in front of the piano.

Despite the noisy chatter of other children, a girl started playing the piano.

Even though Jo Sung-hyun wasn't well-versed in classical music, he could recognize Czerny.

It had been a long time, so the memories were a bit hazy, but he had touched on Czerny a bit when learning the piano.

Czerny was a genuinely popular subject, and Jo Sung-hyun knew that much.

Chaeyoon, standing next to the girl playing the piano, might not know.

Watching quietly, Jo Sung-hyun confirmed that Chaeyoon's expression was subtle.

She seemed a bit angry, yet interested in the piece.

Not understanding the issue, Jo Sung-hyun simply observed the situation quietly.

The piece ended quickly, and then Chaeyoon moved.

In terms of atmosphere, Jo Sung-hyun realized that the group of girls around Chaeyoon wasn't particularly friendly.

"They're just kids."

It could be enough.

No, it wasn't because they were kids.

In society, such scenes were commonly observed.

Jealousy, rivalry...

Fights often occurred over trivial matters, so what about among children?

As a dad, Jo Sung-hyun wasn't pleased with the not-so-friendly attitude some kids had towards Chaeyoon, but he knew that there were also kids who liked her.

In life, meeting both good and bad people was inevitable.

Jo Sung-hyun had no intention of directly intervening.

He just wanted to see how Chaeyoon would handle it.

He had to protect Chaeyoon from attacks by bad adults, but what happened among children might be a stepping stone for Chaeyoon's growth.

Chaeyoon sat in front of the piano for a moment, trying the keys, then raised both hands.

Her small hands were raised over the keys.

And softly.

Czerny's performance unfolded.

It was a bouncy yet gentle performance.

Jo Sung-hyun looked at his daughter and his eyes sparkled.

The piece wasn't very long to begin with.

It was only about 40 to 50 seconds long, less than a minute.

Chaeyoon had perfectly mimicked the Czerny that the other child had just played.

No, it was more than mimicking. The Czerny that Chaeyoon was playing was better than the one that the other child had just played, so it was embarrassing to call it mimicking.

She brought out the bouncy feeling much better, and moved her hands smoothly without any roughness.

Jo Sung-hyun let out a sigh as he watched.

For the past few days, he had been worrying a lot.

He had to teach Chaeyoon the piano properly.

But how should he teach her the piano?

Even though Jo Sung-hyun had learned various things about music, and could play the piano, violin, and other instruments or sound equipment a bit... teaching was a completely different story.

Of course, he had many concerns, and one of the methods he thought of was Czerny.

From the very basics.

The 'standard' that had been handed down for decades. Wouldn't that be the best?

He had thought so.

But look at this.

Teach Chaeyoon Czerny?

Of course, it was one of the pieces in Czerny 100 that wasn't very difficult, and a 7-year-old child who had learned the piano a bit could play it.

But to understand the piece after seeing it once and play it better than the child who had just played it...

'That's a different story.'

Jo Sung-hyun thought to himself.

He kept saying it, but Chaeyoon was a genius.

Ordinary people couldn't measure the child's talent.

Czerny 100?

She could learn all of that in a week if she played the piano for fun.

The 'standard' was meaningless for Chaeyoon.

Whose standard was it?

It was the standard for ordinary, or moderately talented children.

It didn't suit Chaeyoon.

She didn't need to simply play the pieces and get used to playing the piano, and practice.

What Chaeyoon needed now was...

'I don't know.'

He still didn't know.

By his own standards, Jo Sung-hyun wasn't completely untalented in music, but he wasn't able to immediately know what Chaeyoon should do in the future.

Maybe it was because he was a novice dad.
