It starts when he talks to his parents that he wants to become idol but his parents doesn’t like that and say “What do you think you do? We cannot support you to become idol, we are from low class family and we don’t have any cost for that. You know how much money you must pay for that.” when he hears his parents said like that he feels very sad, disappointed and he asks to himself “Should we come from high class family to become idol?
