As a caring and diligent father, factory worker Kwon Gang-Ho supports his family with the little that he earns. At his workplace, he is admired by everyone due to his benevolent nature. Meanwhile, in Seoul, Gang-Ho's wife Yeong-Ran looks after their children on her own. Despite struggling to keep the family afloat, she never neglects her kids and puts in all her effort to raise them.

When Gang-Ho's carelessness gets him involved in an accident, it leaves his face with severe burn marks. Dismissed from his job afterward, Gang-Ho returns to Seoul. However, since he does not want his family to know about the mishap, he decides to stay at his friend's house for the time being.

One day, Gang-Ho encounters his daughter crossing the street. Suddenly, a car speeds forward and almost hits her, but Gang-Ho arrives in the nick of time and rescues her—wearing a mask of the fictional hero "Gugu-man." Following this incident, Gang-Ho starts using the costume of Gugu-man to keep an eye on his family without ever revealing himself. Thus begins the heartwarming tale of a devoted father and his earnest endeavor to protect his family, all while having to face arduous circumstances of his own.

For a manhwa called familyman there really is not much family connections at all, and the story suffers because of it.

We are thrown into the thick of a problem, without prior knowledge of how this family functions or operates, and as the plot progresses it doesn't deepen this aspect at all. And you need this if you want to make a heartfelt story involving a family, you need to understand why you are supposed to care.

The tone shifts throw you in for a loop, ranging from very shallow comedy, filled with butt jokes to action moments to dramatic scenes. I am all for diversity read more

When I viewed the information page of this title, I felt pretty bad because hardly had anybody bothered to read this manhwa and nobody posted a review of this title online. That's why I considered it my responsibility to shed light on this title. Oh, and by the way, this is my first review.

I was really astonished to see that such a manwha wasn't more popular on MAL, and that there was only one review, so I thought I would add mine.

Family Man was a real emotional rollercoaster, between being heart-warming and sad.
Gang-Ho is a worker in a plant far away from his family that was fired after an accident that left him with a terrible scar and who can't face his family with such a face, so he wears a costume of a popular superhero to save them without them knowing. His devotion to his family is absolutely wonderful, and was very touching.
The webtoon is not read more
