So what if my father was a murderer? I'm not him! He committed the crime, and I have to pay for it? My whole life I've had to struggle with what he did. I joined gangs. I did drugs. I almost died, you know? It's a miracle that I can have a job I'm good at. You said so yourself. But now it's not good enough?

People were saying hanging was too easy for him. But I still did my job. I made it painless. That is compassion, understand? Who are you to lecture me?

The perfect job P1 of 2:

Learn the ropes, yeah? The length of the drop is very important. But it's all common sense. Look at the chart. If the guy is 189 pounds, how long should the drop be? 168 centimeters. 140 pounds? 215 centimeters. The idea is simple. We need enough pressure to fracture his spine. If the drop is too short, the guy would be strangled to death. If it's too long... My job is to make sure he dies instantly. Make sure there's no pain. In some countries... They use the short drop. It's pitiful, you know. The guy really suffers. They'll let him struggle for 30 minutes Until he turns blue and soils his pants before he dies. But here...

The perfect job, P2 of 2:
We are humane. We make sure it is quick and painless. The perfect job is when we fracture between the second and third vertebrae. This spot here.
Can you feel it? Mmm. When he drops, you will hear a "crack!" And that's it. He stops moving. His heart stops. Everything stops. His soul is gone, just like that. ... The trick is... To place the knot... Just beside the left ear above the jaw. So the force hits... Just like that.

An extraordinary social drama that is unique to Asian countries where children are shamed for life by their parent's sin. The young actor was super playing the complex role as a tortured man looking for answers and a better future.
