The Way of the Househusband Season 1 Recap
Tatsu, or commonly called as “Immortal Tatsu” in his yakuza days, was feared by everyone. He had managed to bring down a rival gang with a lead pipe. When he disappeared, no one would have expected that he will emerge as someone who became a stay-at-home husband – leaving his violent life behind.
However, being a househusband has its own challenges. Instead of battles, he struggled with supermarket sales. He also had a lot of cooking failures in the kitchen. Because of his past, his old allies and partners follow him as well as a bunch of misunderstandings.
