He tries to run his family with an iron hand and doesn’t appreciate independent thinking, even if it is his son’s. His wife, a simple housewife, unquestioningly follows his patriarchal norms. The daughter-in-law, too, abides by his code of rules. He doesn't relinquish control of his family even after his death. He tries to control them through his will, however he is in for a surprise.
