Happy Together I 해피투게더 EP.602 Part.1 [ENG/2019.08.29]On January 20, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
The magical Thursday night with top stars. – Happy Together! / – Happy Together! (Happy Together) The viewers must be wondering where we are. We came out of the studio after a long time. (A hot midsummer night) (A small place to escape from the heat in the city) (A place with old music) (and romance) (Happy Vinyl Bar) I wondered why we rented a vinyl bar today. I applaud our staff’s thoughtfulness. And their ability to invite such great stars. They invited such great stars. You see, it’s hard to see today’s guest on a variety show. – We can’t waste any second. / – No, we can’t. Today, a single shot of them will be much more effective than 10 jokes Saeho would make. – Their reactions matter more. / – That’s right. – Let’s bring them out. Come on out. / – Come out. (Please come out.) – Kim Goeun. / – Welcome. – Kim Goeun. / – Jung Haein. – Kim Gukhui and Jung Eugene. / – Welcome. – Hi, Goeun. / – Hello. – How has it been? / – It’s been a long time. Oh, my. Hello. I’ve never met Haein in person before. – Hello. / – Hi, Eugene. Is this lineup real? – Oh, my. / – It’s hard to believe. Today, we invited the masters of romantic dramas. It’s “Happy Together Music Album.” We’ll introduce our guests one by one. Even a goblin fell for her irresistible charms. She’s beautiful on sunny days and lovely on cloudy days. And we miss her on perfect days. The great actress, Kim Goeun! – Kim Goeun! / – Come on! (Kim Goeun) There’s a long line of women waiting to treat him to a meal. – Still? / – He has a sweet face and voice. The master of romantic dramas with unlimited charms, Jung Haein! – Jung Haein! / – Jung Haein! (Jung Haein) My goodness. Such amazing stars are here with us. She’s a veteran actress with 14 years of experience. She’s aiming to be a scene-stealer with her realistic acting. Actress Kim Gukhui! Kim Gukhui! This is so exciting. We rarely get to see – Gukhui and Eugene as well. / – Exactly. – Today’s lineup is incredible. / – Indeed. This episode will be legendary. – It’s amazing. / – She has perfect body proportions. She has an innocent face, but her body is voluptuous. The rising star with unexpected charms, Jung Eugene! – Jung Eugene! / – Come on! (Jung Eugene) We’re always grateful toward all the celebrities who come on Happy Together. But when stars who rarely appear on a variety show come here, we get even more excited than we usually do. It must be the first time to be on a talk show for some of them. – Of course. / – It must be. – Goeun has come here once. / – That’s right. – But Haein… / – This is his first time here. Isn’t this your first time on this show? Yes, it is. Isn’t it your first time on a variety show? – It’s my first time on a talk show. / – Right? – Haein seems / – Right. quite excited and nervous at the same time. Are you nervous? – I’m very nervous. / – You are? Goeun seems much more comfortable than last time. – She seems relaxed. / – She seems relaxed, indeed. – This is my second time. / – You’ve been here before. The TV shows that Goeun has appeared on so far are “Connect! Movie World.”.. We did some research. – “News Room” and Happy Together. / – Yes. (She hasn’t been on any other variety shows.) It’s her second time on this show. This is the only variety show. Did you appear on only three shows as a guest? – Well… Yes, that’s right. / – Right? – I bet you got invited a lot. / – Exactly. Actually, I… How should I put it? I tend to become nervous and shy so easily. I was afraid I might not be able to say anything on the shows. – That’s why. / – Yes. (Unlike what she said…) (She flusters Saeho in a sketch.) That was funny. (And she tells a lot of interesting stories) (she prepared for today.) (She’s funny enough to win “Talk Box.”) (Coming soon) (Variety Show Fairy) – The door is always open for you. / – He’s right. – Are you comfortable here? / – Yes. You watch Happy Together often, don’t you? – Yes, I do. / – All right. Did you watch last week’s episode? No, I didn’t. She didn’t lie. I was just wondering if she did. – Don’t do that. / – Don’t ask such questions. – I’m sorry. / – It makes all of us uncomfortable. – Understood. / – It doesn’t matter. She’s here. Even if she did, it’d be awkward. Since she said she had watched our show… When Sul Woondo was here… Don’t make our guests uncomfortable. – You could’ve just moved on. / – Let’s move on. I heard you met Saeho during a private occasion not long ago. We hear that Saeho met our guests every week. – What’s wrong with you? / – Why won’t you go home? – It’s not like that. / – How? How did you meet Saeho? Gong Yoo and Lee Dongwook called me after a long time and asked me to have a drink with them. They were drinking near my house. But I was on my way to meet my friend, – so I just stopped by. / – I see. And Saeho was there too. – That’s right. / – Since Dongwook was there. I see why Saeho was there. He said that Goeun will come and asked me to make her feel comfortable. What was Goeun like when you met her? Unlike her image from her dramas, she was very easygoing and pleasant. I was worried she might be uncomfortable around me, but she made me feel comfortable. “Goblin” aired three years ago. It became a big hit. Are you still close to them? – It seems so. / – Yes, I am. We’re still quite close. I guess they still keep in touch with each other. They eat and drink together from time to time. I visit Yoo Inna’s house very often. – Is that right? / – Inna’s house? – Yes. / – They adore her very much. Gong Yoo and Dongwook adore her as if she’s their own little sister. And she treats them like her own big brothers. It’s hard to open up her heart, but once she does, it goes a long way. – I open up my heart easily. / – Really? (I open up my heart easily.) (Don’t get me wrong.) Then why didn’t you open up to me? (Then why didn’t you open up to me?) (Why would she?) – To you? / – Why would she open up to you? She locked her heart. – She won’t open it. / – I felt it before. She said, “See you around.” She said she’d go home and left. After that, we went to a karaoke. And she was in the next room at the karaoke. (She was in the next room.) – Goeun. / – She left saying she’d go home. – Were you uncomfortable? / – I just… – It wasn’t like that. / – I was so surprised. I thought I saw a ghost. You should’ve gone elsewhere. – Let me explain. / – Okay. I had made a plan with my friends before I met Saeho. – We planned to go to a karaoke. / – I see. It’s the karaoke I usually go to. When I was leaving the bar, they said they were going to a karaoke. I had a feeling that they would go to the same karaoke. So I took a taxi, ran to the karaoke, – You went to another room. / – and went inside. But I clearly remember what she said. She said she was going home. But I saw her singing in the next room at the karaoke. “What’s going on?” – “Did she hate me that much?” / – She was afraid… She was afraid you might come. Saeho, she didn’t want you to come. She tried to sing quietly too. I knocked and opened the door. Why did you open the door? (He shouldn’t have opened that door.) (How will the story end?) “What brings you here?” (What brings you here?) I said, “Gong Yoo is here too.” (A very unfortunate encounter) (Go away.) Saeho, you get this signal – quite often. / – I really do. – An Youngmi did the same thing. / – That’s right. I saw her eating in a restaurant in Itaewon with a man. When I called her, she saw me and did this. (Desperate hand gesture) She asked me to leave to prevent anything bad from happening. – My goodness. / – My stomach hurts. All right. – She sang… / – Was it funny? – It was hilarious. / – Was it okay? (He can’t stop laughing.) – This is so funny. / – Is it? Please tell people that Happy Together is funny. Goeun, “Goblin” is one of the best dramas you played in. I enjoyed it so much. There’s a rumor that the cast members of “Goblin” pretended to be closer when they were on camera. Is it true? The senior actors of “Goblin” – are playful. / – I see. For example, when they saw me eating, they said, “Are you eating again?” and left. – They can be very playful. / – I see. When they came up to me while I was eating and said, “Is it good? Eat a lot.” Then I knew there was a camera filming us. A camera? – Filming a behind-the-scenes video? / – Yes. They suddenly came to me and asked if I was hot. I would’ve shaken off their hands like this, but since I knew there was a camera, I said, “It’s okay. I’m fine.” You acted just like they did. – “What about you?” / – That’s funny. Like this. What would you have said if there was no camera? (She laughs first.) “Of course, it’s hot. Would it be cold in summer?” (Of course, it’s hot. Would it be cold in summer?) (So realistic) (They’re like actual siblings.) – Good. / – Indeed. Great. “Would it be cold?” “It’s hot in summer.” At last, he came on our show. He’s the standard of innocent looks. He’s the epitome of a beautiful man. Haein was really worried about being on a variety show. – Was he? / – Yes. – Why? / – I’m not good with words. And I tend to become nervous very easily. I’m saying this to make you relaxed, but a single scene where you sigh will draw more attention than Saeho’s jokes. (His existence alone is enough.) It will have more impact. – I don’t think we’ll get any airtime. / – Exactly. Were you worried after getting invited to our show? Yes, I was. This is something that I’ve never experienced before, and I have never met you guys before. – This is strange… / – It’s strange to you. So I was a little worried. It feels so different from filming a drama or a movie. I heard that he’s usually quiet, – but he talked a lot to our writer. / – Really? – Really? / – He talks when it’s 1-on-1. Our writer was also surprised. – She didn’t expect… / – Because he was chatty? Yes, because he talked a lot. – Really? / – She asked questions skillfully, so I could give her long answers. – I owe it to her. / – What a comment. Gosh. (He even has a good personality too.) – I see. / – Have you not seen any of us? – We are in the same agency. / – Exactly. But I haven’t seen him until now. We’ve never met in person before. Before he became popular through his drama, he held a fan event. – I made a video for the event. / – You did? I was so grateful. – Don’t mention it. / – When Jaeseok’s video was played, and he appeared on the screen, the fans cheered loudly. (The fans cheered excitedly as Jaeseok appeared.) I’ve been making a lot of videos, but it was one of the best things I’ve done in my life. (My past self, good job!) Haein became very successful after that. – If you look back… / – I’m happy that I did it. I met Haein at a movie premiere event. – Do you remember that? / – Yes, at my movie premiere. – I remember. / – I was surprised by him. Why? It was after he became popular through “Something in the Rain.” He was already a top star as he is now. He could’ve just said hi to me casually, but he greeted me politely 10 times. I wondered if there was someone else behind me. He bowed so politely 10 times saying hello to me. – Why did you bow so many times? / – Why did you? When Hyunmoo was on another TV show, he talked about me a lot. – “I Live Alone”? / – Yes. – I see. / – I watched the episode too. – Thank you for that. / – He was grateful. Oh, that’s why. I thought he was a very polite young man. We haven’t heard a heart-warming story about Hyunmoo for a while. It’s been one and a half years, right? I think it’s been that long. Right? You must have been invited to many other variety shows. But you had your own reason to choose Happy Together. First of all, the four of us were going to be here together, – so I felt relieved. / – Of course. Also, I’m a big fan of Jaeseok. – You like Jaeseok. / – Yes. (He turned out to be Jaeseok’s fan.) And I believe that Jaeseok will make me feel comfortable here. – Don’t worry about it. / – I trust him. I’m going to make you relaxed – until you feel so relaxed / – You can trust him. that you sit like this. – You might feel sleepy. / – I’ll help you relax. (A while later, it actually happens.) (The Way Jaeseok Helps Haein Relax) (1. Pouring compliments) (He’s on pins and needles.) (That’s mine.) (2. Nitpicking at him) (The newbie entertainer’s funny moments) (will be revealed.) She’s a veteran actress who is famous in the theater industry. Kim Gukhui is here too. (This is her first appearance on a variety show.) Please say hello to our viewers. Hello. Hello. I play in theater plays, dramas, and movies. I’m Kim Gukhui. It’s nice to see you all. – Why did you laugh, Goeun? / – Me? She was so cute. Goeun must like her very much. Gukhui won the Best Supporting Actress award for two years in a row – at the musical awards. / – Oh, my. She’s already been acknowledged for her acting skills. – But people don’t recognize her. / – Is that so? Many staff members didn’t recognize me earlier today. We didn’t recognize her either. – She was standing at the back. / – Yes, I was. This is your first appearance on a variety show. I heard that she made our staff laugh so much – in the pre-interview. / – Really? They’re hoping many people will know about her through this show. – I see. / – That’s what we were told. – Many people will know you. / – Our writers never lie. – Is that so? / – Yes. Last but not least, she played in “Heard It Through the Grapevine”, “Something in the Rain”, and “Romance Is a Bonus Book”, building up her acting career. Eugene, please say hello to our viewers. Viewers of Happy Together, hello. I’m Actress Jung Eugene. Thank you. (I’m Actress Jung Eugene.) Did you ask someone for advice before coming here? I’ve been filming a drama. Moon Geunyoung plays in the drama too. – You’re working with her. / – Yes. I was so worried. What did Geunyoung say to you? She said I could just relax. That she found it difficult at first, but she had a good time on the show. (Happy Together doesn’t bite.) Geunyoung texted me last night. – Really? / – Since Eugene would be here, – Really? / – she asked me to help her. Oh, my. Did she? She said Eugene is down-to-earth. She told me to make sure to hear Eugene sing. She said Eugene sings amazingly. – Really? / – Yes. She said Eugene is a great singer. – Many of our guests are. / – We must hear her sing. (The other guests are encouraging her to sing.) What? My goodness. By the way, Geunyoung told her to be comfortable and created an uncomfortable situation. (She created a very uncomfortable situation.) – She gave me many tips. / – That’s right. – “Make her sing a pop song.” / – These tips are quite precious to us. – That’s right. / – It’s a nice tip. Eugene, we will look forward – to your performance. / – Please prepare yourself. I will do my best. – Yes! / – That’s great. All right. Will we hear Haein sing as well? We should hear it. (What will be Haein’s answer?) I will do my best. (I will do my best.) – My goodness. / – He is cool. (It’s like a festival.) – My goodness. / – We rented the perfect place. (That miraculous moment is coming soon.) (Haein captivates women’s hearts.) (Goeun has been to the karaoke quite often.) (Eugene has the singing skills Geunyoung swore upon.) (Stay with us with “Happy Together Music Album.”) The guests who aren’t used to variety shows decided to visit Happy Together. It seems like Happy Together is well-known among actors as the best program for promotion. All movies and dramas that were promoted on the show – became successful. / – They became a hit. – Yes. / – “Miss Baek”, “Intimate Strangers”, “Doctor Prisoner”, “What’s Wrong, Poongsang?”, and “My Prettiest Daughter in the World” became a hit. All of those movies and dramas became successful. It would be great if we become more successful. We only make others become successful. The four of you are in a movie, “Tune in for Love.” – I am really curious about the plot. / – Right. Haein, why don’t you tell us as the representative? The movie, “Tune in for Love”, captures the moments from the mid-1990s to the early-2000s. (Life was beautiful and warm back then.) Through the radio, a man and a woman adjust their frequency throughout their lives. What’s the genre? It’s a melodrama. – Melodrama. / – Yes. Are you a producer? Goeun said it so firmly. “It’s a melodrama.” (The AI robot, Kim Goeun) A robot would be friendlier. I haven’t seen you in a while, but you are still quite firm. Okay. Goeun, is there a reason why you decided to join the cast? Director Jung Jiwoo said – one thing. / – What did he say? “I am confident in my ability to make you” – “I will do that.” / – “shine in this movie.” “I will capture your moment of life.” That’s why I said, “Okay.” What he said is very cool. – “I can make you shine.” / – “I am confident.” You heard later on that Haein joined the cast. – Yes. / – You joined the cast first. When I heard the news about Haein joining the cast, I was very happy. Haein, you knew that you would act alongside Goeun. Is that why you decided to star in the movie? – Yes. / – You didn’t read the script. To be honest, I knew that Goeun would star in the movie. When I read the script, I imagined the character as Goeun. The script was very touching. When I met the director, I got the sense that I had to be in this movie. Before we parted ways, I asked him – for his number. / – “I have to be in this movie.” Yes. I told him that I wanted to be in this movie. Goeun and Haein met in “Goblin.” (The two actors met in “Goblin.”) (Haein played Goeun’s first love.) I almost didn’t recognize you. Haein was very thankful for Goeun back then. Yes. Back then, Goeun’s schedule was packed because she was in many scenes. I could leave after attending the shoot for a short while. Even though she was tired and in no condition to look after the others, she cared for me. She looked after the staff members. She told me, “If an opportunity comes up,” “I hope to see you at a set again.” To me, it meant a lot. – Do you remember that? / – Do you remember that? Even if you don’t remember, say that you do. – I do. / – It was a chicken restaurant. She remembers. – She cares for others. / – She is really sweet. – Really? / – Really? She’s very caring. My goodness. – You want her to keep going. / – No, no. I see, she’s very caring. Why did you want to see him again? Well… That’s not what I meant. I just thought – our meeting was too brief. / – Right. I hoped we would work together longer the next time we meet. (She hoped that they would meet as the same cast.) That was why I said those words. But you didn’t say those words to everyone. Still… Why are you making her uncomfortable? Shall we ask him to leave the room? What is your problem? He shouldn’t do that to the guests. You’re making her uncomfortable. Gosh, I will apologize to her. You should be careful. When Goeun was starring in “Goblin”, she learned that Haein joined the cast and said something to the director. “My character, Euntak, likes handsome men.” I said that. You said that upon learning that Haein joined the cast. – You learned about your character. / – He is handsome. He looks great, so I said, “My character, Euntak, likes handsome men.” I said that. – It was a joke. / – Yes. There are people with a pure first impression. He looked as if he had just washed his face. That was the first impression I got from him. Thank you. You know, Haein is wearing a white T-shirt and jeans today. It’s a simple look, but it makes him look cool. – I get what Goeun means. / – I know. I understand. (His handsome face makes him look fashionable.) (Laughing) Why are you laughing? Is it something we said? No. Back then, I filmed the scene in which I met my character’s first love and returned to the set. Apparently, the staff members teased Gong Yoo. (Did the staff members tease Gong Yoo?) “We saw Goeun’s brightest smile yet.” (They had never seen Goeun smile so brightly.) – Gong Yoo. / – He must have been jealous. Gong Yoo said, “I heard you showed your brightest smile yet.” It was a smile that came from your heart. – You couldn’t help but smile. / – That’s right. – “That’s right.” / – “I couldn’t help it.” – You admitted it. / – You can’t hide it. What would you have said to the director if Saeho played the main character? – Let’s hear it. / – Tell us comfortably. (What if Saeho played the main character?) (I want to confess my love on the right day.) (I ask for your permission.) “My character cares about the personality.” Personality! (My character cares about the personality.) (Saeho becomes the king of personality.) – Personality. / – That’s what she cares about. – Personality. / – All right. – That’s nice. / – She doesn’t care about the looks. Goeun said Haein had a pure first impression. Haein, what was Goeun’s first impression? – She is expectant. / – She was… She was like a young girl. I saw her for the first time on the set of “Goblin.” She was like a young energetic girl. She was cute. I saw her as her character since I was a fan of “Goblin” myself. That made you well-suited to play your role. Eugene, this is the second time – you are working with Haein. / – Really? – Yes. / – “Something in the Rain.” In “Something in the Rain”, you played a character who has a crush on him. – Yes. / – I see. – How was it? / – I had not watched Haein’s previous shows at that time. (She had not seen Haein before.) I read the script and saw him for the first time at the read-through. He was so well-suited for the role and thought the director did an amazing job. While it’s just acting, actors say that playing a character who has a crush fills your heart with rage at times. – Doesn’t it make you upset? / – Does it? – If you are too absorbed. / – Did that happen to you? I have played that character too many times. Did you often play a character who has a crush? I played many characters who has a crush. Not the other way around? That’s right. It was always the other way around. I am sure the characters who have a crush aren’t all the same. But is there a trait, facial expression, or line they share? They often stare at someone’s back. I see. (They often stare at someone’s back.) – I see. / – Someone’s back. – That’s so sad. / – I know. – The main character always leaves. / – That’s right. He gets a call from his girlfriend and leaves. Then your character gets disappointed. It’s just acting, but it sounds heartbreaking. Since I am absorbed in my role, my heart aches. – I see. / – I heard that Haein is loyal. I heard that he made you feel deeply moved once. Yes. After “Something in the Rain”, I was starring in another drama. It was a hot day. The staff members came to me and said, “Thanks for the coffee.” They said that and left. I didn’t know what was going on. Then the director said, “The coffee from Haein” “tastes good.” I had no idea. I went out and saw that Haein had sent a coffee truck for me. – He didn’t tell you in advance. / – No. My goodness. I posted a photo – of me bowing. / – You didn’t tell her in advance. – We are in the same agency. / – Right. I asked her manager about her schedule. – You asked. / – Yes. It was my first time to receive a coffee truck. You must have felt deeply moved. I was like, “So this is how it feels.” I was so thankful. – That’s a great thing to do. / – The truck had churros – as well as coffee, right? / – It was really tasty. – You are obsessed with the menu. / – You know – I am like that. / – He paid attention to the menu. – Also, / – What is it? Goeun sent me a coffee truck. We are with a group of coffee truck enthusiasts. You all send a coffee truck to each other. They are coffee truck enthusiasts. Like Eugene, I had no idea. That day, I was so busy with the shoot. I was at the set. I learned later that the coffee truck was outside. – I see. / – You are each other’s Secret Santa. I had no idea. Goeun, you said it’s fun to tease Haein. She’s teasing him here too. I think she teases him often. I am disappointed that it isn’t so apparent since there are too many cameras. Shall we remove the cameras? – We can use a smartphone. / – How will we shoot? We can use a smartphone. I go, “You are so cool.” “You are so cool.” I say that repeatedly. “You are so cool.” Then he doesn’t know what to do. – I know what you mean. / – His reaction. – His reaction is funny. / – Yes. – You are so cool. / – He did that earlier. – You are so cool. / – You are so handsome. Your bracelet looks cool. – You are the best. / – You are the best. His teeth are very straight. – Jung Haein! / – Jung Haein! We are ridiculous. You have such nice skin. Goeun and people around him know that he is like this, so they continue to tease him. – He’s cute when he’s flustered. / – It’s so much fun. – Are you sweating? / – It’s hot. – Is it hot? / – Yes. – You are cool. / – You are cool even if you are hot. This is good. I got the hang of it. – Goeun gave us an important tip. / – Yes. Okay. We now know what we need to do to bring out Haein’s true charms. He really looks cute when he is flustered. This is how you do it. (Haein looks for something.) – What? / – That’s mine. Oh, okay. (Jaeseok continues to tease him.) (Haein is flustered.) Are you okay? I get it. This is how you do it. – He won’t drink your water. / – I see. He became sullen. I was joking. Haein can’t take a joke. – He is serious. / – So… Right, Goeun? He can’t take a joke. He didn’t even touch my water. His nickname is Scholar Jung. – I see. / – It suits him. He is upright. Even when we joke around, he remains serious. When I watched him on TV, I thought he would be sexy. – He appeared that way on TV. / – Yes. “He is like science fiction.” – You said that with your friends. / – Science fiction? – “There is no way he exists.” / – I see. “There is no way he exists in real life.” He is incredibly polite in person. Because he doesn’t talk much, he is very atmospheric. He was like the man of fall when he entered the set with fallen leaves. – Is he taciturn in real life? / – Yes. Does he talk more when you become close to him? Haein, are you taciturn? Yes. I don’t talk much. Are you usually like that? I usually don’t talk much. Do you talk a lot when you’re with your close friends? Men can get quite talkative. I tend to listen. – Really? He is like a scholar. / – I see. It’s good to have a friend like him. During the interview, you described Haein as cheonggukjang. Why is that? There is a cheonggukjang restaurant that I’ve been going to since university. It suddenly came to my mind, so I said he is like cheonggukjang from that restaurant. What about him reminded you of cheonggukjang? I like cheonggukjang. The more you boil it, the tastier it gets. – He is genuine. / – He is genuine. It doesn’t have to be cheonggukjang. It can be doenjang stew. Seaweed soup and beef bone soup work too. – Seaweed soup? / – Beef bone soup? In any case, he is a stew or soup. Beef bone soup is the best. It’s cooked for long. That’s how – heartwarming and genuine he is. / – I see. What will Haein say? Haein, how would you describe Goeun? – What is she like? / – What is she like? She is like a lily. – A white lily. / – Yes. It’s a beautiful analogy. I don’t even know what it looks like. How would you describe Gukhui? Do I need to describe everyone? That’s right. – You have to do it. / – It’s a segment. You need to go all the way there. You need to do it for the cameraman too. – Get ready. / – What was your first impression? Give us a short description of what she is like. The icon of consideration. – The icon of consideration. / – She is considerate. On the set, she is very considerate of her fellow actors. – The icon of consideration. / – Yes. How about Eugene? Her facial expressions and energy have – a wide range. / – I see. So how would you put it? A woman of many charms. – A woman of many charms. / – My goodness. It’s a good one, Eugene. – Thank you. / – A woman of many charms. Had we come up with that title, everyone would have said it’s unoriginal. How about Yoonhee? We met for the first time today. – She is expectant. / – You are beautiful. Thank you. (Nervous) Stop making him nervous. What is your problem? I am not making him nervous. He is struggling. – A rose. / – A rose. – Your outfit makes it fitting. / – Thank you. – I couldn’t help but laugh / – A rose! because his eyes shifted for a second. – He looked at you. / – He wanted me to tell him that he can stop. But I let him keep going. He glanced over at me a few times. It was so much fun. Since we don’t see him often on a variety show, – we must ask this question. / – That’s right. Please answer honestly. – What is Haein like? / – Right. I shouldn’t care too much about his image, right? (Variety Show Fairy) Please go ahead. That’s how you make a successful variety show. That’s how you promote your movie. What is Haein like? – Would it be okay? / – Yes. (The Variety Show Fairy gets started.) – She’s getting ready. / – It looks like he is nervous. Haein is serious, taciturn, and shy. So it comes as a surprise that he is a manly man. Really? (He is a manly man.) It makes you go, “What?” – He isn’t only gentle. / – That’s right. I think she says that because I don’t act cute. I have a younger sibling. I am the first child. – Here is what I think. / – Yes, Yoonhee? – Their movie is a melodrama. / – Yes. There must be a scene that shows physical intimacy. That must have been – when she felt Haein’s manliness. / – That was sharp. Maybe he gave her a strong hug. Maybe. – I remembered something. / – Okay. – Now we are talking. / – That’s good! – So… / – We are getting stories. He looks as if he can’t drink a drop of alcohol. That’s right. But he can hold his liquor. – It’s unexpected. / – So he is completely fine even after drinking a lot. How much can you drink? I can’t drink a lot. I like beer, but… Goeun said you can drink a lot. I can drink a bottle and a half of soju. – That’s pretty impressive. / – He can hold his liquor. He is completely fine after a bottle and a half, right? Are you completely fine? It wasn’t a comfortable get-together. There were staff members. It felt like a continuation of work, so I couldn’t get drunk. – You couldn’t get drunk. / – No. He’s handsome and can hold his liquor. – That’s a surprise. / – Do you have drunken habits? Does your face turn red? – I repeat what I said. / – Do you? I repeat what I said and fall asleep. That’s not much of a drunken habit. Haein said Goeun livened up the mood at the set. Goeun and the director are close because they have worked together. She is mischievous. – Really? / – Yes, she is like that. – Does she pull pranks? / – She pulls many pranks. She does it to me. She makes me embarrassed. That’s hilarious. How does she make you embarrassed? She compliments me endlessly. – She compliments you endlessly. / – Yes. She monitors my performance and compliments. “Your performance is the bomb.” I don’t talk that way. When he enters the set… (She cheers and claps.) “You are so cool!” (You are so cool!) – My goodness. / – It wasn’t directed at me, but I feel annoyed. – She didn’t mean it. / – She did exactly that. – She did exactly that. / – Really? – How did you feel? / – “You are so cool!” I felt like going back home. (It’s fun to tease Haein.) “My goodness.” I continue to do that. It takes some time to become close to Goeun, – but she can be a good friend. / – I can see that. Apparently, she said, “I can liven up the mood.” “I know how to be witty and engaging.” – My goodness. / – Why do you keep being this way? Did you say that or not? “I know how to be witty and engaging.” I think I do. “I say the right thing at the right time.” She said, “I say the right thing at the right time.” I don’t say much, but… Your words are effective. I wait for the right time and say something. It makes me happy when people laugh. – It makes you happy. / – It makes you happy. She bursts out laughing on her own. – It’s very important. / – Yes. She knows when to enter and leave the conversation. She enters and leaves at the right time. You can’t do that. – I… / – You only enter. – You only enter. / – You don’t leave. I see. – I will try to change. / – Okay. I heard that Goeun and Haein had the perfect chemistry. I heard it showed at the afterparty. What happened? Goeun came up with the idea. We had an afterparty. Since the crew worked really hard, she thought we should prepare gifts for them. (They prepared the gifts together.) – She came up with the idea. / – She’s sweet. So we shopped together at a grocery store. (They went to a grocery store and shopped together.) So we joked to each other that it was like playing the rich. We put all kinds of things into the cart. What were the gifts? We bought different kinds of things. They could win those as prizes during games. – Nice. / – Like a lucky draw. But you had to be the youngest to join the game. (Only the youngest member of each team could join.) Only the youngest member of each team could join. That’s a great idea. There was a tablet. – A tablet. / – There was a laptop too. That’s why it felt like we were playing the rich. People really love – tablets. / – It’s very expensive too. It says here that you two play well together too. – What does that mean? / – It’s not just us two. It applies to all four of us. We all like socializing over drinks. You are similar. Yes. When a shoot ends, we drink with the film crew and talk about this and that. We all like that, so we get along very well. Your parties must be fun. I heard Eugene would go to any lengths to make it to the party. – You’d go to any lengths? / – She’d go to any lengths. In the film, my role isn’t that big. I didn’t have to go to many shoots. I think I went to more parties than shoots. One day, Goeun was treating the crew to sashimi in Wolmi Island. She was treating the whole crew to thank them. – She’s generous. / – So I – ran there as soon as I finished. / – You ran there. You went all the way to Wolmi Island for sashimi. – Where were you? / – I had a shoot the next morning. – I didn’t sleep and joined. / – I was so surprised. She must love sashimi so much. Actually, I love the people I met through this film. Including the director, everyone is so nice. The fellow actors are amazing too. So hanging out with them energizes me. That’s why I never miss it. – I see. / – Goeun is always fun, but I heard she becomes even more fun when she drinks. – I am sure. / – Right. – What are you like? / – I become even bubblier. I become bubblier. I get hyper. She loves to sing and dance. It’s not exactly a bad habit, but when she drinks, she gets excited, and she goes to a karaoke. – A karaoke. / – She loves to sing. You sing well too. I always go to a karaoke for the second round. – Karaoke. / – Yes. Do you have a karaoke repertoire? What is the song you make sure to sing? Let’s say you went to karaoke with people here. – I know it’s uncomfortable. / – It won’t be pleasing. We tagged along. You are uncomfortable with us, but we tagged along. Am I sober? – You are drunk. / – You are a little tipsy. “Press the digits.” “Breathe.” (“Breathe” by Lee Hi) Does looking at us make you sigh? – “Why am I here?” / – “Breathe.” (Goeun’s performance of “Breathe”) (It will be revealed shortly. Stay tuned.) Shooting “Tune in for Love”, there must’ve been a lot of behind-the-scenes stories. Did you lose 8kg for this film? I lost what I gained for the last film. And shot this film. For the last film, you had to gain weight. Yes. I had to be chubby. – For “Sunset in My Hometown.” / – Right. Wasn’t it hard to gain weight and to lose weight again? – Isn’t it very hard? / – How do you lose 8kg? Gaining weight is just as tough. I love eating. I was really happy when I was gaining weight. – It wasn’t hard. / – It wasn’t. – I was so happy. / – You got a chance to eat snacks. I could just wake up at night and eat ramyeon. You eat ramyeon. I really like ramyeon. And… When I was losing weight, I watched eating shows every night. (She gained comfort by watching eating shows.) You watched them for vicarious satisfaction. – You didn’t eat. / – I cried. “I want to eat it too.” Isn’t it torturing? Isn’t it better to not watch it? When you keep watching it, it feels like you’ve eaten the food. I heard Haein loves to eat too. You look like you would always eat chicken breast. You give that impression. I think you would strictly manage your diet. I love eating. I work out hard to enjoy food. – You are that type. / – Yes. What kind of food do you like? – I like meat. / – Meat. There are pork and beef. What kind of meat do you like? – I prefer pork. / – Pork. (We should get him some pork.) Something fatty like pork belly. When you were younger, you ate a whole box of chocolate pie in one sitting. That was when I was a private in the army. I used to crave for sweet things. – Chocolate pie is the best. / – I ate one box with 500ml of milk. There were about 24 pies in 1 box. Right. You ate all of those? I ate everything in one sitting. (He finished everything in one sitting.) Didn’t you gain weight? I gained a lot of weight. I gained about 12kg. – You were the biggest then. / – Yes. Do you enjoy eating alone? – Yes. I love eating alone. / – Is that right? Do you eat outside? Or do you eat at home? – I go to a barbecue restaurant. / – You love meat. – You go for meat barbecue alone? / – Yes. – You barbecue meat alone? / – Yes. – You put kimchi on the grill too? / – Yes. Eating at a barbecue restaurant alone – is considered tough. / – Right. – It’s tough. / – It is. – I just go to a corner… / – And you eat alone. Yes. These days, there are many restaurants tailored for – those who eat alone. / – There are many restaurants. I heard the lady at the restaurant felt bad for you – and grilled the meat for you. / – Right. – “You came alone again?” / – They usually don’t grill it for you. But she grilled the meat to cheer me up. – She cheered you up. / – She grilled it for you? Yes. She grilled it and cut it for me. They don’t usually do that. How far have you gone with eating alone? I haven’t gone to a buffet yet. – A buffet. / – That’s really not easy. Can you manage to go to a buffet? I want to give it a try. (He’s determined.) The toughest by far is eating alone at a family restaurant. That’s not easy. I wonder what the others are like. Can you go to a restaurant alone, Goeun? I like doing everything alone. But I don’t like eating alone. You don’t like eating alone. It’s better to eat together. – Right. / – She’s cute. She wants to eat different kinds at once. She wants to take other people’s food. – She’d order different dishes. / – Yes. You are starting to relax. (He is adjusting to the variety show.) He’s starting to talk up. You starred in “One Spring Night” with Han Jimin recently. Jimin said you are proud of your barbecuing skills. Yes. I really love meat, and I eat a lot of meat. So I developed barbecuing skills. – How? / – I take the tongs and scissors. I know that. Whenever I go to a barbecue restaurant and there’s someone like me, I compete with the person. – We have a war of nerves. / – That’s me. There are people who like to hold onto the tongs. So I always do the barbecuing. How do you barbecue meat well? What is your secret? It depends on the griddle and the strength of the fire. Let’s say it’s a cauldron lid. – It’s slanted. / – We’re grilling pork belly. It’s a slanted griddle. That’s for rookies. (Haein is the master of barbecue.) What kind of griddle would experts choose? You have to heat up the griddle first. Usually, on a slanted griddle… (You have to choose the meat according to the griddle.) – You cook pork. / – Right. Before placing the meat… You coat it with fat. You can’t flip the meat often. You have to wait a long time. I get very impatient. – You can’t do that. That’s bad. / – I keep flipping. That’s the worst. – For the first time, / – What is it? Goeun looked at me with contempt. It would lose all the juice. So I shouldn’t do that? I am too impatient to wait. – What should we do then? / – What should we do then? You only flip it once. You have to sear the outside. If it’s a thick cut, you sear all four sides. – You lock in the juice. / – Yes. You can cut it into small pieces from the start. You have to cut it into big chunks and then cut them smaller. I don’t know when to flip it once I place it on the griddle. If you are not sure, check it from time to time by lifting it up. I do that too often though. I just keep lifting it. If the meat is a thin slice, flip it when blood comes up. When the blood comes up. – What about a thick cut? / – You have to check the cooked side. – Lift it up slightly. / – It shouldn’t be burnt. Do you usually eat meat with salt? Or do you make a wrap? I eat it with salt. You eat it with salt. You like to taste the meat. Do you put a slice of garlic or not? Are you interrogating him? It’s just that I am curious about everything he does. Does he put a slice of garlic on top? I wrap the meat with kimchi and eat it with rice. – That’s very delicious. / – That’s delicious. That’s really good. Are you not happy with it, Goeun? No, it sounds too delicious. (It’s making me dizzy.) You must enjoy cooking at home too. I don’t think you would always get food delivered. I like getting food delivered. I like cooking too. I’m not a great cook. – What do you cook? / – I am slowly getting started. What would you cook on a day like this? Saturday night. It’s being aired on Thursday night, but we are shooting it on Saturday. What would you order if you were at home today? – What would I order? / – Yes. What would be nice? (Jokbal) – Jokbal. / – Jokbal. – Jokbal. / – That sounds good. – Jokbal. / – It must be around midnight when this is airing. (Spicy jokbal) What would you eat then? – Spicy jokbal. / – Spicy jokbal. After midnight, you go for spicy food. Something else? (Is there any other answer?) – Tteokbokki. / – Tteokbokki. (Goeun doesn’t approve it.) – I think they like / – They like spicy food. – meat dishes. / – Stir-fried tripe. – They like spicy food. / – They prefer meat. – Spicy food. / – Stir-fried vegetables and tripe. – That’s good. / – You like spicy food. – I like spicy food. / – Right? Haein, you did something special for the movie too. I had to act the character in different time periods. I wanted to feel the sentiment of each period. So I listened to a lot of music from each time. I listened to a lot of music of Lee Moonsae and Kim Kwangseok. (He focused on his character through music.) – Right. / – I listened on the way to the shoot. – It’s amazing. / – There are many masterpieces. – Too many. / – Which song of Lee Moonsae? There are so many great songs. I love “Girl.” – There are too many good songs. / – Right. Since Haein loves to listen to the songs from the 90s… Right. Can you sing it for us? Please sing for us. Now? – Just a little bit. / – You can do it now. You have to do it now. (“With a Heart that Should Forget” by Kim Kwangseok) (Dewdrops quietly flow) I will stop here. You don’t need to lower the key. Bravo! – Bravo, Haein! / – Bravo. Bravo, Haein! You made it to the next round! Geunyoung personally asked me. – I have to ask Eugene to sing. / – I can’t wait. She said Eugene sings really well. – I don’t sing well at all. / – I am sorry, but please sing an English pop song. – An English pop song? / – An English pop song. – An English pop song. / – An English pop song. – An English pop. / – I heard you sing pop songs well. I will give it a try. – Of course. / – Which one are you singing? “What’s Up.” – “What’s Up.” / – It’s 4 Non Blondes’ song. You need to sing well to handle this song. She must’ve been to karaokes often. She’s good. Join me. I will stop here. Please finish that part. It was amazing. You are really good, Eugene. – What a beautiful voice. / – Do you own this place? She… – She does. / – Her voice changes slightly. (She had impressive singing techniques.) – Her voice was… / – As a musician myself, I could tell she has great skills. From the side, I could tell that Goeun was getting excited. – Let’s go, Goeun. / – Please show us. Let’s go! (Goblin’s first love, Goeun will perform.) (What do I do?) – “Breathe”? / – Eugene performed too. – Do you want to sing “Breathe”? / – Casually. – Which one? / – “Breathe” by Lee Hi? She sings “Breathe” well. (“Breathe” by Lee Hi) (Someone’s breath) (That heavy breath) (It’s okay, I will hug you) You are amazing! Wait. – She’s good. / – They need to release an album. – Seriously. / – Seriously. They all sing so well. I have more faith in the film now. Great. Haein doesn’t just listen to the songs from the 90s. When he gets obsessed with one song, he listens to it all the time. I listen to that one song in the car – and at home. / – You just listen to one song? Which song are you obsessed with these days? These days, I’m into Paul Kim’s songs. – Paul Kim. / – His songs are amazing. – “Every Day, Every Moment”? / – Yes. He’s got so many good songs. Can you sing one bar of his song? – One bar? / – After I met you ♪ (“Me After You” by Jung Haein) (Their hearts race.) (After I met you, small changes make me happy) (The bright morning dazzles me) (I start the day thinking about you) Shouldn’t he become a singer? – His voice is incredible. / – It’s so nice. His voice is really nice. His voice is perfect for singing songs like that. Gukhui, were there moments during the shoot that made you realize why Haein is so popular? In the film, there was a scene where I get reunited with him. I had to look at him and say, “You look great.” We hadn’t seen each other for a long time. But he was actually handsome. (She means it.) He really was handsome. I had to be surprised at how handsome he was and talk while touching his body. I saw that scene recently. I looked like I was genuinely happy. (She really meant it.) I was really happy. I wasn’t acting. Right now, you look really happy – Yes. / – You are short of breath too. – He was really handsome. / – Did you feel that too? I felt it during the shoot. (He felt it.) He felt it. Gukhui was staring at him with such lovely eyes. – And Haein felt it. / – How could he not know? (She didn’t need to act.) “Tune in for Love” is a love story of a man and a woman. We’re curious about how you are when it comes to love. We prepared a scenario for you all. Just like in the movie, you run into your ex-boyfriend or girlfriend when it’s been quite a long time. And you want to hold onto them. What would you do?
