She is a full-time housewife who has lawyer-husband and two sons. She is a perfectionist who likes to control everything with her own hand including self management , son’s education and helping her husband.
Different from her hope, her husband and her two sons often do many things far from perfection.
So, she is very busy controlling them.
Since strange planet appears, her perfect daily life starts to be cracked.

24 years old young house-head girl.
She is the healthy sounded girl. For example: she keeps promise till die. She does not give up her dream even in her poor situation.

In spite of her harsh experiences, she is bright and earnest.
Her dream is : Joining Kongkong Co,Ltd. Her father was a founder member of Kongkong Co. Ltd. When she was a child, she dreamed, together with father, to make no-power-glider toy

‘Do you want to go?’-No.
‘Do you want to stay?’-No.
He is a little rusty.
He often makes people feel inconvenient because his talking-style is cynical and ironical.
He grew up in orphanage since his parents died early. He studied programming by himself, then, he made smart-phone apps by himself. In one word, he has a talent for computer.
But, when some people ask him ‘how I name you?’, he answers ‘Just call me Hong-Bug (=computer error caused by Mr. Hong)’.
Since he moves to Jina’s town and lives near her, they often quarrels over small matters. Then, they become close as frequent quarreling often makes people close after all.
28 years old. Guitarist. Artist who meets a wrong period.
Though he is a needy guitarist who has nothing but guitar, he does not care.
He is like a Taoist who does not care wealth, fame, power. Without any worries, he lives freely and easily in poor slam.
He even has just one cloth. When he washes that cloth, he has to wait till it dries.
He is very slow in daily matters. For example, when someone asks him something, he answers it 10 minutes later.
But, his life faces a turning-moment when he meets fickle Suyoung who meets him in the club where he plays music.
