Hyunjin had a gut feeling that something had happened to Seyoung in Korea, but had no idea what was going on or how.
“Mrs. Rendall, they are not Korean embassy employees. They are spies disguised as embassy employees. They had a clear intention to kidnap Mrs. Rendall into South Korea.”
The whole neighborhood was so noisy that people watched it, and the whole family moved under the escort of a police commando.
After moving to a safe house under the protection of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, a man named ‘Paul’, who accompanied him from the beginning to the end, briefly explained the situation.
However, his simple words made Hyunjin and his family more confused.
“Mrs. Rendall. It happened because of her nephew in Korea. Your nephew, Tak Se-young, is in a very difficult situation right now.”
Hyunjin’s heart pounded.
What happened to his one and only nephew, and why Korea even sent people to the United States to kidnap him, and why the police, the FBI, and the CIA, who he also belonged to, are interested in Se-young while protecting the entire family. whether to put
Hyunjin’s family, who were listening together, were so shocked that they couldn’t say anything as if they were speechless.
She knew her sister’s unfortunate tragedy, and she knew well about her nephew, who was about to immigrate to the United States.
But I just couldn’t understand what happened to her ordinary nephew so that people of such great status were interested.
However, a detailed explanation did not follow.
A man named Paul said that in the future, many people would target or approach Hyunjin and Hyunjin’s family.
“Remember this one thing, Mrs. Randall, they are all targeting your nephew Tak Se-young. So, trust me and follow me. We will focus all our capabilities to provide protection and support.”
After Paul left, Hyun-jin has requested a courteous statement about Se-young from a federal investigator.
Not only personal records, but also the place where he lived with his dead parents and the background of Se-young’s growth were asked in every detail.
Not only that, but also where Hyunjin and Seyoung’s mother grew up together.
Hyun-jin was even bewildered that he wanted to investigate the family tree at all, as he was researching himself, his sister’s parents, and even his grandparents.
They seemed to regret the fact that Se-young’s father, Tak Chang-sun, had no blood relative to his grandparents. I asked him several times if he had any items related to him.
And then, abruptly, blood was drawn from her.
Hyunjin and her family, who thought they would return home in a day or two, couldn’t help but become anxious when they could not return home even after several days.
Hyunjin and her husband had to go to work and the children to go to school, but the people who protect them took care of them, so they repeated the words not to worry.
Hyunjin couldn’t sleep at night because he was worried about his nephew Se-young, leaving him and his family behind.
Even if I wanted to find out the news, my personal cell phone was collected by the security guards, and I could not watch TV or use the Internet.
Not to mention going out.
So, even if I wanted to call a Korean acquaintance and ask, there was no way to contact them, so I spent two days of frustration to see what was going on and how.
On the third day, he said that he had moved, so he thought that it would be over and he would go home, but that was not the case.
Because they told me that they were moving to another safe place, not home.
When I first came to Safehouse, I was protected by police commandos and federal investigators.
This time the army came.
It’s not at the level of just being a soldier, it’s heavily armed infantry, armored vehicles, and even armed helicopters in the air.
They couldn’t keep their mouths shut at the movie-like events that took place over them in the middle of the city.
Moving to a new place was a long way off.
After a long drive north of California along the coastal road, we arrived at Fort Brack.
Hyunjin’s family was gradually moving away from their home.
And when they arrived at Fort Brack, they panicked.
This is because the place they had to stay was not in a city or village, but in a military base.
The unit is the 82nd Airborne Brigade, which is the most elite military force that the United States is proud of, so the words to rest assured that there will be no threats made me dazed as if talking about a different world.
As time went on, the things that were going on around us became more and more unbearable to reason, and the anxiety of not knowing what was going on in Korea grew like a snowball.
The day after their stay in Fort Brack, Paul, who had first rescued them from the abduction crisis, returned to visit.
And instead of answering the question that Hyunjin and her family are most curious about, he played a video.
– No need to talk. I just want to let you know.
As soon as he saw the video, Hyunjin had to look at Paul with an expression of who this is.
And I couldn’t help but be surprised to hear that the big guy in the video was Se-young.
No matter how hard I looked at the video, I couldn’t find Se-young until I looked for it.
Hyeon-jin was surprised to see Se-young’s changed so much.
It’s not that I haven’t seen you for a long time, and that you change so much that you don’t recognize me at all in just two or three years of not seeing you? In addition, there was no resemblance to a dead older sister or brother-in-law in her huge height, slender body, and angular face, which seemed to be over 2m tall.
It was astonishing to see where all the handsome looks that had inherited half and half of their parents’ appearances went.
On the other hand, Yoon-Jin, who saw the kneeling teenage man at the target with the large blade that Se-Young was holding like a toy, was so excited that she opened her eyes.
No matter how much time passes, how can I forget that face?
One of the culprits who drove all of my nephew and family into misery.
-Lee Soo-hyun. Jang Soo-jung. Junhyuk Kim. Yujin Kim.
genial. Heewoon Nam. You die at my hands.
Your parents also die at my hands. Your brothers and sisters also die at my hands.
where to go
Tears welled up in Hyunjin’s eyes as he watched the video.
As the camera in the video illuminates the crowd and the armed police commandos, he realized that the large sword in Se-young’s hand was no longer just a toy.
– Whether you call the police or the army, do whatever you can to respond. Yet you die. in my hand.
The eyes of Se-young, who looked at the camera and said openly that she would kill people, were not the eyes of her nephew she knew.
His eyes were so cold and so emotionally dry.
– Take a good look. The commencement of the declaration of war will be replaced by this.
Hyunjin swallowed the scream and covered his open mouth with his hand.
Her husband was forced to flee, covering the children’s eyes when the boy’s head was brutally cut in the video.
After that, some edited news passed quickly.
Most of them looked at Se-yeong with a mixture of fear and criticism, calling for the government to take action.
Nowhere was the media advocating for the three spirits.
There was not even a place to question whether the crimes committed by the family of the enemies revealed in the hostage play were investigated.
Several press conferences between the government, military and police were shown in the video.
There were rumors that the military was dispatched to catch a nephew and the police were dispatched, and there were casualties in the process.
In just a few days, her nephew had turned from a serial killer to a terrorist.
To her, who was almost completely lost, Paul delivered more shocking news.
“My wife, Mr. Tak, is currently occupying the residence of the President of the Republic of Korea. And at his threatening demands, the Korean government, military and 10 million citizens of Seoul have all been evacuated from Seoul.”
It was a series of unbelievable news.
How could his nephew be capable of such a terrific thing?
And if it happened just a few hours ago, Paul played a separate video and showed it.
-okay-! Did Korea die? Either I die or one of the two must die before the end-! me! and you! did you kill me? All died by my hand! After the video ended, Paul, who had not lost his smile, looked at Hyunjin with a firm expression on his face only this time.
Her husband, who had brought the children into the room, had a shocked face at the content of Se-young’s cry in the video, but he did not say anything and looked at his wife with tears streaming down his face.
Hyunjin could not forget the last words of Seyoung’s screams echoed in his head.
Did Korea die?
or die yourself
It was only sad for Hyunjin to realize that his nephew, who used to be kind and soft, had turned into such a scary person and made everyone in the world tremble in fear.
When her one and only older sister committed suicide with her husband, she was filled with hatred and wished that the whole world would be destroyed.
Above all, there was a time when people who were indifferent and uninterested were more hated than their enemies when they turned away, concealed, and pretended not to know, no matter how much they shouted or begged for help.
So she could understand Se-young’s wrath and vengeance more than anyone else.
When his anger subsided and he became accustomed to his wounds and became numb, drenched in a sense of helplessness, his young nephew was fighting a war against his country and its people.
Hyunjin felt like his heart was breaking because he was so guilty of his indifferent behavior of just holding on to the phone and asking for his regards for the past three years using his family as an excuse.
I couldn’t help but shake the thought that I would not have gone to such an extreme if I had been more caring and watching from my side.
I had to keep by my side.
He had to give him a love that could heal his wounds and his hatred and anger towards the world. Every time I saw the captions on the news screen that the word murderer was a terrorist, it felt like a nail was pierced in my chest.
“Mrs. Randall, I was in Korea a few days ago. And I met Mr. Tak inside our military base in Yongsan.”
“I spoke to Mr. Tak myself.”
At Paul’s words, Hyunjin reached out his hand before speaking and grabbed Paul’s two hands.
Paul knew without asking what she was most curious about.
“Don’t worry. He’s fine. And Korea can’t do anything about him. You’ve seen the video, but you probably don’t know. Mr. Tak has amazing abilities.”
“What did Se-young say?”
“He was very worried about Mrs. Randall and her family. He has also asked our government to do everything in his power to protect him and his family. No one is helping or supporting him except the government.”
Hyunjin couldn’t stop crying when Seyoung asked Paul to protect him and his family.
“Mrs. Randall, for the safety of you and your family, and for Mr Tak’s sake, I would like to ask you a favor.”
“What is that? I would do anything for Se-young.”
Even while Hyunjin was weeping, he had an expression full of determination that he would not hesitate to do anything for the sake of the three young.
“Please convince Mr. Tak to stop living in hopeless Korea and come to America.”
