Her family looks peaceful. But Chang-ik still does not understand Bobby. Lewis, a black man, Chang-ik's very close friend, visits Chang-ik often and Lewis's son Norman, who was a friend of Jee-soo when they were children, also visits Chang-ik's house. About this time the case of Rodney King becomes headline news. When the white policemen are found "not guilty" Los Angeles falls into chaos and every Korean stores becomes the target including Jee-soo's store.
