Unfortunately, he had completely forgotten who he was…..
This was a love story with many struggles because of social status and identity. The costumes were beautiful for the higher class. The poor had so little, even a bowl of rice soup was a luxury. So many more fortunate people wasted so much, while some barely had enough to eat….
