“It’s a lie that dogs bite people. That only happens because people train them too harshly. Dogs never voluntarily bite people. They bite only because they are trained to bite. Phrases like ‘son-of-a-bitch’ and ‘a dude like a dog’ or ‘worse than a dog’ aren’t curses. Because human beings are actually inferior to dogs. Dogs don’t kill. They don’t steal. They don’t kill themselves. They don’t betray others. Dogs just… they are good-hearted and merry. All day long, all their lives, they live simply good-heartedly and enjoy their lives. Gyu-sik was listening, worried that Yeong-bae might bring up his story. But, it wasn’t time yet.”
