On a rainy day, little Hope, 9, coming back from school, is being dragged away by an unknown and drunk man from whom he is subjected to violence, crashing into an intolerable, atrocious tragedy. Hope is subjected to heavy surgery, and ends up injuring wounds that can never heal. Hope's family, destroyed, scared both physically and emotionally, plunges into despair. As a result of the trauma, Hope also rejects the presence of her father, Dong-hoon, who, being unable to stay close to his daughter, is hiding behind Hope's cartoon character's costume and becomes his guardian angel . Thanks to the love of those around her and her guardian angel, Hope gradually regains light. Seeing how Hope gradually finds stability and joy, even the little girl's family begins to change and look for hope in the bottom of the pain.

Region code :3(korea and Southeast Asia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau)

This is achieved by way of region-locked DVD players, which will play back only DVDs encoded to their region (plus those without any region code). The American DVD Copy Control Association also requires that DVD player manufacturers incorporate the regional-playback control (RPC) system. However, region-free DVD players, which ignore region coding, are also commercially available, and many DVD players can be modified to be region-free, allowing playback of all discs.

What is a REGION CODE?

What does a DVD Region Code (i.e. R1, Region 1) mean?

The idea behind Region Codes for DVD movies was created to control the exportation of movies to other countries, thus eliminating the possibility of purchasing a DVD movie which has yet to be played at a local movie theatre.

  • For example: standard DVD players purchased in the U.S. or Canada will only play DVDs that specify they are REGION 1 dvds; standard DVD players purchased in New Zealand will only play DVDs that specify they are REGION 4 DVDs.
  • For example: Region 4 DVDs WON'T PLAY in a standard Region 1 DVD player; Region 1 DVDs WON'T PLAY in a standard Region 4 DVD player.
  • U.S.A. and CANADA share the SAME REGION CODE: Region 1. An R1 dvd purchased in Canada is exactly the same as an R1 dvd purchased in the U.S., and vice versa.

Here is a list of DVD Regions and their corresponding countries:

  • R1 Region 1 ~ U.S.A., U.S. Territories and Canada
  • R2 Region 2 ~ Europe, Japan, the Middle East, Egypt, South Africa, Greenland
  • R3 Region 3 ~ Taiwan, Korea, the Philippines, Indonesia, Hong Kong
  • R4 Region 4 ~ Mexico, South and Central America, Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Caribbean
  • R5 Region 5 ~ Russia, Eastern Europe, India, Africa (excluding South Africa), North Korea, Mongolia
  • R6 Region 6 ~ China
