My name is Joo In-gong. The name that my parents gave me meant ‘protagonist’ of the world. Really?
As anyone can predict, I was constantly teased due to my name. In kindergarten, elementary school, middle school and high school. If I went to university as planned then I would probably be laughed at there as well.
So, at one point, I really hated my name.
But not anymore. Now, I think slightly differently. Maybe being named Joo In-gong was a type of foreshadowing?
When I was 15-years-old, during the year that I graduated from middle school, my father told me this.
“The Devil’s blood runs in our family.”
That was the truth. Sadly my father was the owner of a takeaway chicken shop with the talent of turning his eyes blue, and I was the son of the takeaway shop who just happened to be slightly stronger than others.
But five years later.
They came for me.
