Chiyeul has his own forest? [Happy Together/2020.01.16]On January 17, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
Kim Taewoo, the original son of Gumi, – recently informed us of this. / – Right. He said that his father has been seeing Chiyeul as a rival of his. “Hwang Chiyeul, is it?” “They keep saying he’s the trending star of Gumi.” Who represents Gumi isn’t important, but there’s a place called Yeuli Forest. – Yeuli Forest? / – Really? It’s named after my name. There are trees and… Gosh, look at that! You truly are the son of Gumi. That’s like a statue made for heroes. It was set up by a fan in China and a fan here in Korea. There’s a famous mountain in Gumi named Mount Geumo. This is at the foot of it. – It’s there? / – Yes. There’s a statue too? A muffler is put on its neck in the winter. My fans put one on it. – Also, during Christmas… / – Santa’s hat. Yes, that and the park is decorated with lights. No way. This is on a different level. It’s like a sightseeing attraction now, and my fans go there to take photos. Taewoo’s father won’t ever go there. He might take another route. This is a must-see attraction among his international fans. – I was surprised to hear it too. / – That’s amazing. The level of support is so great that it makes me want to work harder. I don’t know if Taewoo knows about this or not, but… – Well… / – Not knowing it is impossible. Is that so? – Then… / – Are you bragging? Seriously? What I meant was… Must you pass that on your way to Gumi? – That’s not it. / – Must people visit the place? There’s one more thing. – One more? / – Yes. There’s Route Two in downtown Gumi. It’s the street that youngsters mostly gather to have fun with their friends. My handprint and footprint… Like in Hollywood? Yes, on the street, – just like in Hollywood. / – Goodness. – Just yours? / – Yes. – What? Really? / – What about Taewoo’s? Unfortunately, no. (Unfortunately, Taewoo’s prints aren’t there.) Just Chiyeul’s? No way. From what we can tell, Chiyeul is the son of Gumi. – There’s no question about it. / – Right. They were all set up by my fans though. I didn’t know until later so even I went there to take photos.
