I wondered about this, too, because of the given (more precisely, generational) names:이준수이준기이준영BUT이용재 (the one at the wholesale foodmarket and driving the delivery truck)Can anybody unpack the cultural info here? Is this one for your long-suffering mother already?YJ is not the biological son. The father brought him to their home and raised as his own son. That is why the grandmother wants the singer son to go and help the father's business. The older generation of Koreans have a saying which translates to "Don't take in living beings with black hair." It's saying to be weary of other people that are not in your family because they can betray you at any given time. The grandmother is worried that the father gives so much responsbility and trust in YJ because they never know when he might just turn on the family or leave them. Hope this helped!
