Dad wanted his daughter, Uro, to become a painter. In dad's view, Uro is a genius without doubt. According to dad's wishes, Uro began to draw a self-portrait on canvas material that the famous painter Seo Chang ordered before passing away. However, the next day…… the self-portrait became a mess, with paints running down. Uro drew again and again several times, but the result was the same. Will Uro be able to complete the self-portrait?
