좋은 집 좋은 차 그런 게 행복일 수 있을까?
A nice house, a nice car, could such things really bring happiness?

In Seoul to the SKY, 부모님은 정말 행복해질까?
In Seoul to the SKY, would the parents really be happy?
Note:
As explained in No More Dream, In-Seoul and SKY both refer to specific groups of universities in Korea. In-Seoul is a term commonly used to describe universities in Seoul. Most “good” colleges are geographically concentrated in Seoul (though there are few exceptionally well-known private institutions elsewhere in the country). Whether students can get into In-Seoul universities or not is a major criterion when evaluating their academic performances, and even further, their future career path/success. SKY is an abbreviation (made of the first letters) of Seoul National University, Korea University, and Yonsei University, which are considered the top three universities in Korea.
