In one of the most heartbreaking scenes from Real Man, Hyeri accidentally gets a higher than average dose of tear gas while in the chemical training room. According to other sources, it seems that the goal of that particular drill was to give the recruits a taste of tear gas so that they would know how it feels when they use it against others.
Due to unforeseen difficulties, Hyeri has trouble with her gas mask and fails to screw the end piece on properly. But it's not just her. Another recruit is in the same boat as her. But 3 officers are blocking their way to the door. Can they escape in their tear gas-induced haze?
This made me realize that Real Man is more gritty and real than I thought. They show the side of idols that would normally never get exposed, such as filming them waking up every morning with their non-makeup faces and crying due to hardship and pain, but they all make it through in the end.
