After Young Ju’s family arrived America, Young Ju had to go to study at school. In the first time, she did not understand English, but after that she got understand English well. She had one younger brother who was named Joon Ho. He was born in America. One-day father’s mother died and when father knew about his mother, he saddens and after that he had change.
