The storyline leads to reflection between parents and children and how to resolve them in everyday life. The song accompanies and supports that story. Most episodes feature a flash mob that highlights the featured song.

Production

Filming of the series began on 15 October 2018.[5][6] The series was originally scheduled to premiere on 12 November 2018, however it was delayed because of problems with the rights of some songs used in the episodes.[7][8]
