Happy Together I 해피투게더 EP.603 Part.1 [ENG/2019.09.05]On January 21, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
(A little more special Happy Together) (Who could be the special guests) (to meet in a special place?) (It begins now!) The magical Thursday night with top stars. – Happy Together! / – Happy Together! (Happy Together) Today, we came out of the studio again. This is the best place to meet these stars. We’ll meet unusual stars today, right? That’s right. We’re having unusual guests today, so we should be careful. – Be careful what you say. / – All right. Thanks to today’s guests, we might have to use our bodies more than our mouths today. Things might go that way. Let’s bring them out now. – Please come out! / – Please come out! – Jung Chansung. / – Korean Zombie. Ahn Ilgwon. Oh, my. Hello. – Hello. / – My goodness. Hi. (The biggest talk match in history) Their fists make them cry and smile. It’s “Crying Fist.” We’ll introduce our guests one by one. You can’t miss him when you talk about fighters. He’s the pride of Korean fighters. The Korean Zombie mesmerized the world with his dazzling fighting skills. The world-class fighter who is ranked sixth in the world, Jung Chansung! (Jung Chansung) Welcome. The fiery fists run in his family. He has great fighting skills and a handsome face. He also has a perfect body and is called Killer Shoulders. He has irresistible charms. Julien Kang! (Julien Kang) – Thank you. / – He looks great, indeed. She has a beautiful oriental face along with a perfectly lean body. A lot of women want to become like her. She’s good at sports and great at action stunts. Every day of her life is exciting. Choi Yeojin! (Choi Yeojin) – Who’s next? / – Her performance as Shin Hakyun’s bodyguard in “Extreme Job” brought her fame. The action acting master, the action scene-stealer with fast fists, Actress Jang Jinhee! (Jang Jinhee) Come on! Believe it or not, he’s the strongest TV celebrity in Korea. He took down Ma Dongseok, Kang Hodong, and Kim Jongkook, and challenged every thug in Korea. The big mouth fighter, Ahn Ilgwon! (Ahn Ilgwon) Although he showed it briefly, he has such a short reach. You’re lucky that the cameras are rolling. (You should be grateful.) You would’ve been in trouble if you weren’t on camera. Consult a doctor about an illness. Consult a pharmacist about medicine. And consult Yang Chiseung about fitness. He’s the muscle creator who helped Jin of BTS and Kim Woobin get muscular shoulders as broad as the Pacific Ocean. The Hand of Midas in the fitness world, Yang Chiseung! Come on! (Muscular) We’re here with very athletic stars including an actual fighter. And Ilgwon is here among such guests. (Why is Ilgwon here?) But without me… Isn’t today’s theme “Crying Fist”? – Yes. / – That’s right. Isn’t that why I was invited? Maybe “Fist” refers to the five guests, and “Crying” refers to you. (“Crying” refers to Ilgwon, and “Fist” to the rest.) That sounds like I’m actually bad at fighting. This is driving me crazy. – Let’s just leave it at that. / – All right. – Let’s put it that way for now. / – Okay. – We’ll get back to that later. / – Okay. We have strong fists, weak fists, and sweet fists here. – You know who the sweet fists / – What’s he saying? – refer to, right? / – Yes. We’re going to talk to each of them now. It’s your first time here. Say hello to the viewers. Okay. Hello. I’m a UFC fighter. I’m Korean Zombie, Jung Chansung. – He has a soft voice. / – Yes. – Your nickname is Korean Zombie. / – Yes. Could you tell us how you got that nickname? – Your foreign fans came up with it? / – That’s right. – He’s more famous overseas. / – Indeed. Do you like the nickname, Korean Zombie? It’s an honorable nickname for a mixed martial artist. – I drive myself forward / – That’s great. without falling down for a better match. So you’re satisfied with your nickname? Yes, I am. But I’m trying not to rely on it too much. I should win with my fighting skills. (He tries not to rely on his nickname.) I don’t know much about mixed martial artists. But I heard that he’s the most popular Korean fighter overseas. – That’s true. / – But Kim Donghyun said that he’s the most famous. Okay. He just smirked. In the US, I’m a little more famous than in Korea. In the pre-interview, Chansung said that although fighters like Choo Sunghoon and Kim Donghyun – are very popular in Korea, / – Right. he’s more popular than them in the US. That’s right. – You said that, didn’t you? / – Yes, I did. Well… Should I say it myself? – But you said it yourself. / – Why am I sweating? He must be taken aback. I just told the writer. – The interview was for the show. / – Exactly. – Don’t be flustered. / – I’m sweating a lot. You didn’t think we would talk about this. – You should say it on the show too. / – I see. Yes, it’s true. I’m much more famous in the US. You have to tell us as you said in the interview. There are a lot of mixed martial arts fans – in the US. / – Exactly. I think I have a lot more fans in the US than in Korea. In the US, when I have a match, I usually fight in the main event. Then do the fans call your name when you pass by? – They call me “Zombie.” / – “Zombie.” – They call me by my nickname. / – “Korean Zombie.” Not many people know my first name, Chansung. – Many people call me Sung Jung. / – “Sung Jung”? But most people call me “Zombie.” – “Zombie”? Oh, my. / – “Zombie.” You also held a signing event. I held many signing events in the US. There’s a signing event where mixed martial artists – A signing event? / – gather. I heard that so many fans went there to see you that the event went on for seven hours. That’s right. I kept signing for seven hours. (His signing event went on for seven hours.) That’s not a very common thing to happen. Maybe you should’ve kept your signature simple. I came to shorten it. At first, I signed with much effort, but after five hours, I got a little sloppy. – Just writing “KZ.” / – “KZ.” It’s not surprising that he’s famous overseas. Weren’t you in the top three in the world? – Before I enlisted in the military, / – That’s right. I was ranked third in the world. – In the world? / – Yes. (His highest world ranking is third.) I heard that you had an unforgettable match recently. Yes. I fought with the fighter ranked fifth in the world. Back then, I was ranked 12th in the world. Everyone said I would lose. – Yes. But? / – But I defeated him in one minute. (He won by knockout in one minute.) – He won by knockout that day. / – I watched it. Of course, I watched the match. (This is why he’s a world-class fighter.) – You see… / – Congratulations once again. Everyone predicted that he would lose. People didn’t expect much, but he won only in one minute. Such matches like that are so thrilling. Chansung, you said that you always think – that you’ll win no matter what. / – Yes. I’m sure any fighters would think that to themselves. What do you usually think to yourself going up? Since I have children, I tell myself that I should earn money. I get paid twice more when I win. – Of course. / – I think about it too. – Twice more? / – It’s a realistic thought. Fighters get a bonus for winning. Now, I have another reason to fight. I do it because I like it, but it’s also for money. I’m telling you honestly. So in order to get paid twice more, – I need to win. / – You should win. Have there been any changes – since you got married? / – A lot. – Could you elaborate? / – Before I got married, I used to fight for my honor. – What about now? / – Now, I fight for my children. – That’s the sole reason. / – Only for your children? – 100 percent. / – For your family? I also try not to get hurt for my children’s sake. – I see. / – Of course. I have a question. When you have a match with a fighter ranked higher than you, you must be a little intimidated. And there are some fighters – who act annoying. / – Yes, there are such fighters. – Like this. / – That’s right. Fighters like that usually get knocked down in two seconds. In two seconds. It takes only two seconds. It can affect the match. There’s psychological warfare, right? When a fighter reaches a certain level, he fights with his fighting ability, so it doesn’t bother me much. However, I also train young fighters. Many of them are affected by the psychological warfare. – Of course. It’s upsetting. / – Nevertheless, it doesn’t matter if you’re good at fighting. – It’s not a big problem. / – Not at all. In the match we were talking about, you defeated the fighter who was ranked higher than you, but you tried not to look too excited intentionally. If I looked too excited, it could’ve looked like I won because I was lucky. – I see. / – So I refrained myself a little. – If you seemed excited… / – You’d look graceless. – Exactly. / – “What? I really won?” – It wouldn’t make you look good. / – That’s right. – I acted that way instinctively. / – He was so cool. – “I knew I would win.” / – “Of course, I won.” “You may not have expected this, but I knew it.” “It ended faster than I thought.” It felt like this. – You’re a father of three children. / – Right. Do your children also know that you’re famous? My 1st child is 6 years old, my 2nd child is 4, – and the youngest one is two. / – And do they know how famous you are? Yes. My oldest child started to notice my popularity. (His oldest child knows how popular he is.) When my fans ask me to take a picture with them, she asks me why I take pictures with them. – She’s cute. / – She asks such questions. Then what do you say to her? I just tell her that they like me, and they’re my friends. – Your friends? / – Yes. – That’s what you say. / – It’s hard to explain to her. – But in the interview, you said / – Yes? you had told her it’s because you’re a good fighter. Stop talking differently from your interview. (The Korean Zombie became humble.) Come to think of it, I’m talking differently… – In the interview, I said… / – Zombie. Why do you keep giving different answers? You said you had told her it’s because you’re a good fighter. – He knows how to talk on a TV show. / – Exactly. I explain differently to my daughter each time. Sometimes, I say it’s because I’m good at fighting. “I take pictures with them because I’m a good fighter.” He has the strongest fists in the TV industry. – Julien Kang? / – He’s always ranked high – in TV celebrity fighting rankings. / – That’s right. Did you know that? – I only heard about it. / – I see. I’ve never searched it on the Internet. But many of my friends called me to tell me, – “Hey, you’re ranked first.” / – Yes. I was very surprised. I don’t know why, but I guess it’s because there aren’t many men with a large physique in Korea. Above all, he has a great body. How do they rank stars without even seeing them fight? Exactly. You never know until you see people fight. So I don’t care much about it. It’s like arguing over whether Superman or Batman would win. – Superman would definitely win. / – But you can tell without watching people fight. – Pardon? / – All of us excluding Yoonhee… (You can defeat them with a single punch.) You can easily defeat the three of us. I have fought against him. Not many men could defeat him. – That’s not true. You’re mistaken. / – Really? – Even I can’t. / – It wasn’t a real fight. In which weight division would you be if you have a match? I’m big enough for a heavyweight fighter, but if I have a match, – I’d be a light heavyweight. / – I see. Ilgwon keeps looking for a chance to fight with him. – But… / – Well… I am sorry to say this… I don’t watch TV, but I heard this from my friends. “A comedian named Ahn Ilgwon” – He must’ve heard of me. / – “looked down on you.” So I imagined Ilgwon as someone who is really tall and strong. – I am sorry to say this, but… / – My goodness. How did it feel when you saw him for the first time? I was like, “Oh, he is Ahn Ilgwon.” – Is he picking a fight? / – He is actually short. – I am being looked down on today. / – Julien thought you would have Chiseung’s body. I thought he would be tall. – He had expectations. / – I heard that he is a manly comedian. What’s your first impression of him? Well, he looks like a comedian. He doesn’t look like a fighter. He doesn’t look like a fighter. He hurt my pride. – For goodness’ sake. / – Hold yourself back. I thought I would be able to tell – if he was a fighter. / – You think he is too cute. – Yes. He is too cute. / – I see. – His hands are too soft. / – Yes. – Let’s say I am cute. / – All right. We will have to hear what Ilgwon says later on. Julien, you are athletic. – He is athletic. / – What did you study? I recently went to Thailand and went to a training camp for Muay Thai with professional athletes. Julien, are you a professional fighter? No, I have only competed in amateur matches. – You aren’t a professional fighter. / – I’m not. My brother is a professional, so I got a glimpse of that life. I have too many things I like such as traveling, playing, and eating. If I become a professional, I’d have to give up on those things. Professional fighters train every day. – You can’t do that. / – That’s why I do it as a hobby. You are still impressive. Choi Yeojin visited Happy Together after a while. Did you know about the special? No. My agency told me that this is a special on exercise, so I thought you would make me do Zumba. – Since I like it. / – Zumba. You look like a fitness instructor today. A successful fitness instructor. She looks like she works in LA. I do work as a Zumba instructor. – Really? / – Yes. – Really? / – She teaches Zumba to celebrities. Who are you teaching right now? I am teaching Oh Yoonah, Park Solmi, and Hwang Jungeum. IVY recently joined the group. Did you open a Zumba center? No, I didn’t. It’s just an amateur class I teach in a rented studio. Do students pay a fee? They should. (Whispering) What? – Do you get everything you can? / – No. Some pay while the others don’t. – Then… / – That would make things awkward. You should make everyone pay. – You should make everyone pay. / – Yeojin. They should pay even if they are your friends. Give them a discount instead. If a student isn’t well-off, I don’t charge a fee. – She is nice. / – You would charge Jaeseok. – You would charge me. / – That’s right. – How about Hyunmoo? / – I would charge him. – How about me? / – I would charge you. – How about Saeho? / – I would charge him. – You charge everyone. / – You charge everyone. – How about Ilgwon? / – All of you work. – How about Ilgwon? / – Ilgwon? I wouldn’t charge him. Thank you. I will go to your class someday. – Why not? / – He is a weak man. You are receiving many insults today. (Crying Ahn Ilgwon) Yeojin is quite warm-hearted. – Yes. / – Yes. She takes people’s situations into account. (Yeojin is warm-hearted.) Zumba burns 1,000kcal per hour. Really? – For 50 minutes, we dance nonstop. / – I see. – Please show us what it’s like. / – I am curious. Come on! (Yeojin’s Zumba demonstration) Zumba! – She looks like an instructor. / – Zumba! (Screaming) Come on! (Powerful) (A smile is crucial for Zumba.) How does she do this for 50 minutes? My goodness. How does she do this for 50 minutes? (She shows off her nails.) (Screaming) (Jaeseok loves it.) (She moves her limbs nonstop) (and keeps a smile on her face.) (Screaming) (She recruits a new student.) (His dance instinct awakens.) (The new student follows along pretty well.) (Both the instructor and student smile big.) (The session reaches its climax.) This is so strange. (He smiles from ear to ear.) (The student is highly satisfied.) Good job. Good job. That was cool. – You used your whole body. / – That was cool. – Like this… / – She is incredible. Like this, they go on for 50 minutes. – For 50 minutes. / – I bet you burn more calories. Watching it would make me lose weight. – And… / – Seriously. – It’s fun, right? / – It’s fun. – It’s really fun. / – It’s fun, but… Did you get your body with Zumba? I enjoy exercising. Let me catch my breath. My goodness. – That’s relatable. / – What Yeojin said is relatable. “Let me catch my breath.” I like leisure activities I can enjoy in nature and the combination of music and dance. Those are what I like. I got this body with water skiing. I love to water ski. I water ski very often. Now that I am done with the drama, I water ski 3 or 4 times a week. – She is so healthy. / – I do Zumba once a week. I also do fitness exercises once a week and play golf once a week. – She is cool. / – She’s really enjoying her life. This lifestyle really suits her. – You are right. / – The work-life balance. She showed a great action scene in “Extreme Job.” She is the rising scene-stealer. – Please introduce yourself. / – She is Jang Jinhee. – Jang Jinhee. / – Jang Jinhee. Hello. I am Jang Jinhee, an actress who played Sunhee in “Extreme Job.” All right. Jang Jinhee. Those who watched the movie would be surprised to see her be so shy. – I really wanted to meet her. / – I see. She is fierce in the movie. I heard that you were originally a model. Yes. I debuted as a model in middle school. – You debuted early. / – Yes. (She debuted as a model when she was a teenager.) For about 20 years, I worked as a model. It hasn’t been long since I began to act. It has been about two years. You played a supporting role for the first time in “Extreme Job.” Your 1st major job got 10 million viewers. Neither the director nor the actors expected 10 million viewers. To reach the break-even point… – How many viewers did you need? / – 2.6 million. – 2.6 million viewers. / – The movie got 5 times more. The director and senior actors expected about three million viewers. “Since we have good chemistry,” “we might get five million viewers.” We said that among ourselves. The movie ended up getting more than 16 million viewers. My goodness. That’s incredible. – I am jealous. / – Thank you. It was her first major job. It’s quite the feat for her first major job. I heard that you have always liked sports. Yes. I learned many sports. I learned most sports which have academies on the streets. Didn’t you learn jiu-jitsu or something? I learned it for a year and a half. A year and a half. On “Running Man”, she climbed onto my back and squeezed my torso. She almost broke my ribs. She almost broke my ribs. – Do you want to experience it? / – No, thank you. – Why should I? / – You should. – You should. / – It’s so sudden. Why don’t you try the technique on Saeho? Saeho would be a good choice since he is designing his body these days. I am worried Jinhee will hurt herself. Please show us, Jinhee. (You don’t need to worry.) He is taking off his watch. You are the only one I trust. (He is quite serious.) How do I do this? Hold on. – I work out, so… / – That’s right. (Two people in the ring) I will climb onto your back. (She tries the technique.) – Hold on. / – What was that? – What was that? / – Are you sure you work out? I will climb onto your back. If you aren’t careful, your ribs will break. – You should try it. / – Why should I try it? You should try it. Why should I? – Come on. / – You should try it. You should experience it. (Hyunmoo is up next!) (He is full of confidence.) (He acts like a Maori warrior.) Jinhee. It’s difficult. (The die is cast.) (Hyunmoo tries to hold out and Jinhee squeezes.) (As soon as the match begins,) (it ends.) (Jinhee is relaxed.) It ended so fast. (He tapped out at the speed of 5G LTE.) – He felt it right away. / – That’s why he tapped out. He felt it right away. That’s right. He felt pain in his ribs. I think I heard his ribs crack. – I know. / – Didn’t you feel it? (Jinhee, thank you for the massage.) That was no joke. We briefly talked to Jinhee. We have another guest who is the talk of the town. He has finally visited Happy Together. Thug Ahn, Ahn Ilgwon! (Thug Ahn, Ahn Ilgwon) I heard you said this special is perfect for you. Yes. I thought you guys would only talk to me on my special, but you talked to these weaklings. All right. On YouTube, people talk about fights without me when I am the father of fights. I don’t think Ilgwon is suited for “Crying Fist.” Like Lee Gyein, he is more suited for the Bluffer Special. He always shadowboxes on TV. (Lee Gyein’s shadowboxing) I think I will be like him in the future. Ilgwon, I heard that you came with determination. A lot of people acknowledge my strength, but there are a few who still laugh at me like her. I want to make things clear on this show. – You want to tell people. / – Yes. The first-generation fighters among celebrities are Kang Hodong, Kim Jongkook, Kim Changryul, and more. – Yes. / – There are many. I think I am the third-generation fighter. (I am the next-generation fighter.) – You know… / – Don’t make me laugh! React as you want. Do you know what Julien said? “Don’t make me laugh!” (Julien said that.) – You know… / – Don’t make me laugh! (He spoke from his heart.) I need to teach him a lesson. (Excuse me?) Gosh, you didn’t startle me. “You didn’t startle me.” Don’t stand up so suddenly. – Weren’t you startled? / – I wasn’t startled. – Weren’t you startled? / – I wasn’t startled. You will only deliver the facts today, right? You exaggerated a bit last time, but you want to tell the truth today. – I don’t lie. / – No. When you visit my channel, you will see that my subscribers have witnessed the accounts I tell. Really? What have they witnessed? They saw Ilgwon knock out two foreigners – in a fight in Itaewon. / – Really? Do they leave these eyewitness accounts? “Ilgwon, why are you so modest?” “Why don’t you talk about these events?” For those people… You said the UFC tried to recruit you. You said you turned them down. We have Chansung, who is a fighter in the UFC. Did you know that they tried to recruit Ilgwon? I will ask the president. Don’t do that! (Ilgwon becomes flustered.) If you do that, I will seem like a blabbermouth. I turned down the offer to protect other fighters. I wanted to protect other fighters. – Julien, does he seem like / – What do you think? a good fighter? He seems like a bad fighter. Why? He is too loud. People are usually loud to cover up their shortcomings. Are you saying a scared dog barks louder? He is like a Chihuahua – that barks a lot. / – A Chihuahua! A Chihuahua! It’s the quiet dogs you should beware of. – That’s right. / – They bite. Instead of wearing workout clothes, you wore water skiing clothes. (You wore water skiing clothes.) You are right. That must be the most expensive outfit he owns. Will he go water skiing after the shoot? – Isn’t that a rash guard? / – I think it is. He wore a rash guard. I wear whatever when I work out. When you play soccer in the morning, people who fully clad in soccer gears and a headband – are the worst players. / – I see. I wear whatever. You put the most amount of effort into your outfit. – Really? / – Everyone else is dressed modestly. Really? Ilgwon, can you make your body 1.5 times bigger? – This is the compact version. / – Okay. To show you, – I will unleash myself a bit. / – Okay. Like this. (He uses his back muscles.) – What is he doing? / – He is stretching his muscles. You didn’t become 1.5 times bigger. – What is he doing? / – He is stretching his muscles. You didn’t become 1.5 times bigger. I think you have a bad back. Your back muscles can improve. – What? / – Your back muscles can improve. If you don’t want a beating, be quiet. (Be quiet!) Julien, why don’t you stretch out your back muscles like Ilgwon? I will do it next to him for comparison. – Gosh, do it alone. / – Come on. – Let’s compare our bodies. / – For goodness’ sake. Didn’t Julien nearly lift him just now? (Julien has a manly body.) (What just passed by me?) (He’s so cute.) Don’t cover me. (Waddling) Don’t cover me. Don’t cover me. – Julien. / – This is hilarious. – Julien. / – Hold on! You are good. That’s how you do it. That’s how you do it. – You know… / – This is hilarious. You are good. – But… / – I am okay. All right. We have Chiseung on the show as well. – You have your trust in Ilgwon. / – What do you mean? It’s my first time to meet Ilgwon. Then why do you have your trust in Ilgwon? – I have met Chansung and Julien. / – Okay. “An easy target like Ilgwon will visit the show too.” (He thought that upon hearing about the lineup.) Everyone looks down on me. “Then I might as well visit the show.” You visited the show because of Ilgwon. Yes. I thought, “I am above Ilgwon.” – So… / – My presence comforted you. – That’s right. / – If it weren’t for me, – you would have been scared. / – No. I simply would have avoided visiting the show. He got this body by lifting weights. He has a nice body, but it’s for showing off. That’s right. I… You don’t have any muscles. I have compact muscles for actual fights. You have compact muscles. – What are compact muscles? / – I have compact muscles for actual fights. That’s what my subscribers tell me. That makes no sense! It makes sense! I have compact muscles. He is ridiculous. Chiseung is well-known as many celebrities’ trainer. – That’s right. / – Who did you train? Me? I trained 2PM and 2AM, Kim Woobin, Jin of BTS, Jin Seoyeon, – Sunghoon, / – Sunghoon. Choi Eunju, and many more. He refers to Woobin casually. Among celebrities, you are like – the most popular instructor / – Yes. regarding muscles. Your training style depends on the student’s personality. When I train actors and singers, I adjust my style to suit them. If my student thrives with compliments, I go in that direction. If my student needs pressure, I do that. There could also be a student who thrives when I hurt his pride with annoying remarks. What kind of annoying remarks do you make? If I tell Sunghoon that he did well, he goes home. Since he did well, he thinks – there’s nothing more to do. / – “I can go home now.” That’s why I can’t help but use curse words. It got edited out when he and I were on a show, but I use a lot of curse words. How about Jin of BTS? He is so polite that I don’t need to say much. When I tell him to do something, he says, “Okay,” and does it. He says hello and goodbye – so diligently / – After the workout session? that I wonder if we are friends. Chiseung, you said your various training styles – don’t work on some students. / – Who are there? There is one student who is absolute trash. – Absolute trash! / – He is absolute trash. – He recently opened a restaurant. / – Who is he? Kwon Hyuksoo. – Kwon Hyuksoo. / – Hyuksoo. Hyuksoo comes and looks around as if he is going to exercise. If he sees his friends, he lures them out. (He lures them out.) Since Hyuksoo’s face remains lean, his condition isn’t so obvious. – He hides his body / – He’s famous for that. by wearing boxy T-shirts like Hyunmoo. – Is that so? / – I watched Hyunmoo move. He resembles Hyuksoo. Hyuksoo? Chanseung said Hyunmoo won’t be good at sports. – Really? / – I don’t know much about weight training, – but judging from how he stands… / – You know. – Yes, I know. / – How is that possible? I can tell if someone will be good at mixed martial arts. Can you tell from the standing position? I can tell from the stance. It doesn’t matter which sport they play. I saw Hyunmoo throw the first pitch and learned that he will never be good at mixed martial arts. – What did you see? / – The first pitch? My goodness. That’s insane. That’s the worst! How could you throw the first pitch like that? – I am fascinated. / – What did you do? – I… / – What did you do? It was an underhand throw. Then why did your foot go up so much? I don’t know. I can’t control my body. Why don’t you throw a pitch here? – Well, / – What did you do? when you throw a pitch… How did that pose come to be? – People throw / – That’s not an underhand throw. – the ball like this. / – That’s right. – This kind of throw is too common. / – Okay. – So what did you do? / – So… – I did this. / – What? (He was too ambitious.) (His greed brought on this catastrophe.) (His pose that resembles a dancer became a meme.) (Too much is as bad as too little.) – I get it. / – You get it, right? – You get it, right? / – I get it. I was trying to be like Kim Byunghyun. – You got the same pose. / – That’s right. – Ilgwon, did you acknowledge me / – Really? – as a fighter among the MCs? / – As a fighter? Before I met Hyunmoo, I thought he must have high testosterone levels – because he is hairy. / – I see. But I came here and saw him shadowbox. That made me realize he must be a terrible fighter. (He must be a terrible fighter.) He did this, right? I think he would lose to a woman. I have no confidence. – As for Saeho… / – What do you think? I can see it as clear as day. – What do you see? / – Let’s say he bumped into a man and he went, “Hey, who are you?” “Who are you?” “Me? I am nobody.” He would say that. – My goodness. / – Is that true? I can picture it. I can picture it. Why are you getting up? My goodness. Why are you getting up? I can’t believe I am saying this, but… – Just say it. / – Go ahead. I promised myself not to engage in a fistfight 15 years ago. – Really? / – What do you think? – You know me. / – How’s his form? – Form? / – His form. (What will he say about the MCs forms?) – I used to do taekwondo. / – I see. What’s important? (A taekwondo belt holder does a turning kick.) He’s cute. He looks like a Chinese child circus member. My goodness. He looks like a Chinese child. (An extraordinary martial artist from mainland China) – Like a Chinese child. / – With spinning plates. – I still got it. / – I love it. (What’s Korean Zombie’s assessment?) I think he’s athletic, but he’s just too short. (He’s just too short.) – I’d say something nice, but… / – He’s too short. His legs are too short too. – You are too short to fight. / – This is so funny. You are just too short. (The second player is Muhammad Mooli.) (He’s got sweet punches.) He’s terrible just as I imagined. Let me show you. (He’s just as terrible as he imagined.) Gosh. Watch me. (The last one is Tony Yuguson.) Grasshopper. Should I try the uppercut? (His specialty is the waterwheel uppercut.) What is that? That’s like a massage chair. Right. – Faster. / – I think he will do well. – He’s got long legs and arms. / – Right. (His body will give him the advantage to attack.) Gosh. You. It’s… I can beat you all. – I think Jaeseok would do well. / – It’s because… You all look like herbivores feeding on grass. Among wild beasts. Ilgwon should move here. I belong here. Gosh, you guys. (I could beat you all if I wanted.) Only if I hadn’t I made a promise to myself… They are so funny. – Chiseung, / – I’m exhausted. I’m sure you can already tell. They are poor athletes. What exercise should they do to get better? – What exercise should we do? / – Now… I will show you. This is 5kg. It’s just big. – It’s big. / – It’s light but big. – It looks really heavy. / – I know. – You do a lot of sitting. / – Right. Your back and your core muscles are important. That’s important. The shape of your back. Usually people exercise the front a lot. But your core is important, so you have to exercise the back muscles. You don’t just exercise one muscle group. You exercise multiple ones. Hold the dumbbells. It’s similar to Romanian deadlift. Lift them up. But you open your arms. (It’s a variation of the Romanian deadlift.) – Open your arms. / – It works out the erector muscles. (It’s great for exercising the erector muscles) (and glutes.) When you do this, you can – exercise all the muscles / – Chiseung – running along the back… / – isn’t that tall either. He looks like me. – We are very similar. / – They are similar. (I found my love.) We are very similar. Our arms are the same lengths. I get it now. If Saeho works out a lot, he will be like him. – Right. / – He will be like you. That’s why… That’s why I am telling him to widen his shoulders. (If you widen my shoulders, you will be like me.) It will make your face look smaller. Right. I thought, “That body looks very familiar.” (They have matching bodies.) Soon, your face will look small. If I bulk up my body. They are before and after versions. – Chiseung showed us the first one. / – Right. You should do that. And there are many people who have weak legs. – Right. / – You can do something fun. It’s called the King Crab. You walk like this. Like a crab. – What is that? / – Like this. – That’s amazing. / – Wait. – Chiseung. / – You really look like a crab. That’s not the only lower body exercise though. – This is not the only one. / – There are squats. But this is quite fun, and it’s a great workout. Does it lift your buttocks too? Of course. Try it. – Let’s try it. / – Try it. Like this. That’s a wide squat. It’s better if your hips are lower than your knees. – This is really hard. / – Right. It’s better if your hips are lower than your knees. Goodness. It’s very easy to follow, isn’t it? Why don’t you try it, Yoonhee? Isn’t there a move that’s good for me? Is it good for girls too? – It’s okay. Try it. / – Yoonhee. Give it a try. – Like this? Is this enough? / – Yes. – Hold up your arms. / – Hold up your arms. – Lower your hips. / – You have to go lower. – Lower. / – Is this good? – She doesn’t work out. / – From there… You shouldn’t tuck your hips. Push it back. And continuously push them down. – Like this. / – That’s it. – Raise your arms. / – It stimulates your legs well. Move to the side. – That’s it. / – It stimulates the legs well. (King Crab Yoonhee is so cute.) – Yoonhee! / – Yes? You are not athletic, are you? You never work out, do you? (I got caught.) – Thank you. / – She’s good. (It was a great time for our bodies.) – Chiseung is amazing. / – That was fun. – You can do the King Crab at home. / – It’s hard. It’s great to do while watching TV. – It would be really nice. / – Yes. We first started with Zumba and did a few exercises. – It feels great. / – Chansung, did you start martial arts because you were a weak child? – Is that right? / – I got into martial arts because I lost a lot of fights. I was too weak. When I entered middle school, I wasn’t growing taller and bigger. That’s why I got into it at first. Many fighters who started because they were weak ended up performing better. Really? Not those who were good from the beginning. A lot of people are like that too. The ones who beat him up in the past – must be terrified. / – They… Did you see any of them again? They messaged me. – What did they say? / – Did they apologize? “Are you well, Chansung?” “I am sorry.” We never talked before though. But they message me and ask me if I remember them. – They remember you. / – Some did that. You got into it because you were weak, but when you actually started, you turned out to be really good. Yes. When I fought in Korea, I won nine fights in a row. I didn’t lose once. I actually didn’t plan on becoming a professional athlete. But I kept winning. So I naturally became one. Chansung isn’t just called “Korean Zombie.” He’s also got the nickname “Great Fight Maker.” You are the first and last fighter to win with a cobra twist. – Yes. / – I saw that. – I saw that. / – He was the first. It’s actually a professional wrestling hold. – Right. / – It’s a wrestling technique. They came up with this technique during a fight. I am the only UFC athlete to use this technique. It’s called cobra twist, right? – Nobody did it after you? / – Nobody has done it yet. He did it to Garcia. Can you show us this technique? – Sure. / – It’s a very dangerous technique. – Ilgwon can do it. / – You can – choose any of us. / – It’s a dangerous technique. So Ilgwon can do it. – You are the best among us. / – I will do it. This is fine. You are the only one who can fight against him. (They have an intense war of nerves.) He is terrified. Wait. Wait. That hurts. – He held Ilgwon’s legs. / – I’m fine. Then he’s going to twist it. Wait. Don’t twist too hard. (Take it easy, please.) That’s enough! That’s… – That really hurts. / – You twist it. You twist the legs forward and upper body backward. You twist the body in opposite directions. Even professional athletes won’t be able to stand that. – I was good, wasn’t I? / – Yes. Thank you. – Good job. / – You’re the best. He’s good. It was okay. (He becomes pretentious.) When you do a cobra twist, you twist the upper body and the lower body in the opposite direction. It’s for breaking the spine and neck. – It’s very dangerous. / – It is. When the hold involves neck or elbow, your spine gets injured. When your spine breaks, you are done for. An ordinary person can’t survive such a technique. – Of course. / – You have to tap out. Chansung is the highest-paid UFC athlete. Is it true? I am the highest-paid Asian UFC athlete. You are the top in Asia. Only as a UFC athlete, as far as I know. – I always get a bonus too. / – Right. Whenever I have a fight, I get a bonus of 50,000 dollars. – What is it? / – The bonus pay is 50,000 dollars? When do you get the bonus? When the fight is good. If I win nicely. – If the fight is good. / – Do experts decide that? When I have the fight, I know if I will get a bonus. One time, you had 7 fights and got 7 bonus pays. I got a bonus pay for every single fight. Hence the nickname “Great Fight Maker.” His performance is great. I am curious. How do they calculate your pay? – How does it work? / – How is the pay decided? – Your starting pay is 10,000. / – 10,000. If you win, you get 10,000 dollars more. The more fights you have and win, the higher your pay gets. Like in my case, your pay can skyrocket if you’re in a good fight. That’s important. In my case, I was in 7 UFC fights, but my pay is higher than someone who was in 30 fights. Your pay is higher than someone who was in 30 fights. Yes, in the UFC. At the end of the day, it’s business. So they pay the athletes who bring more to their business more. Julien used to go to your gym too. You acknowledge him as the best celebrity fighter. Ilgwon isn’t the best celebrity fighter. It’s Julien. I can’t even beat him. No way. He’s a big guy, and he’s tall. Which weight class does he belong to? He’s five classes above me. – Five classes above you. / – Really? – That’s a big difference. / – Even if you are good, you can’t beat someone – heavier than you. / – It’s hard. Regardless of the weight, – if he isn’t a martial artist, / – I see. it would be easy to beat him. – But… / – But he is – almost a professional. / – He’s like a professional. He’s a professional. He’s a professional, so when it comes to stamina, – he’s better. / – He’s better. I think he would beat me based on that. Chansung isn’t sure if he can win against you. That’s how good he is. Julien, who do you think… This is just between us. Who do you think is as good as you? – Among celebrities? / – Among celebrities. Ma Dongseok. He’s a big man. Your brother is Denis Kang, a very famous martial artist. Didn’t you help your brother during his fights? – I tried being his second / – Right. a few times. My job was to support him. I stayed backstage and sparred with him. We warmed up together. During the fight, I gave him advice. He talked about the role of a second. As a player yourself, when you are really worn off, – you hear what the second says. / – You hear it. Can you take in the advice? Can you hear everything? When you gain experience… – When you get used to it, you can. / – I see. At first, you can’t hear anything. – The first match is like that. / – In the US, fans are really aggressive. Isn’t it really different? When the fight begins, people shout too loudly. And I can’t hear anything. In between the rounds, you sit down and talk with your coach. What do you talk about with your coach at that time? He gives me feedback on each round. He tells me what I did wrong and how I should fight. Does he tell you the opponent’s weakness? He would tell me to kick the opponent’s legs more – because his leg is injured. / – You talk about that. He tells you to kick his legs a few times more. He tells me about my opponent’s strengths and weaknesses then. When the opponent gets knocked out and collapses onto the floor, you sometimes yell out a cheer, but you sometimes go – and hug them. / – You become compassionate. How does it feel when that happens? At the end of the day, we all work – in the same field. / – You are in the same situation. I don’t like abusing each other with harsh words. After the fight, I… It’s the same before the fight and during the fight. – “Well done.” / – Yes. Exactly. – I can’t speak English well, / – “Thank you.” – so I say, “Thank you. Sorry.” / – “Good job.” – “Sorry.” / – “Sorry.” You say that you’re sorry? Yes. I say that. The same thing happened this time. If I could speak in Korean, I wanted to say, “Please understand me.” But I couldn’t do that, so I just said, “Thank you.” If he was Korean, you’d say, – “You understand, right?” / – “I am sorry.” – I would’ve said those. / – “Well done.” But I think they still understand me. – They would get it. / – I’m sure they all understand. We talked about Denis Kang briefly. There was an old video in which they were – crushing a watermelon. / – They crushed them. – Shall we watch it? / – Yes. (They tried to crush watermelons with their hands.) What is that? (It’s like he’s making juice out of it.) Julien lost. (He juiced it.) (They are two brothers) They are incredible. (with Herculean strength.) It’s hard. We did that in Canada. We used the Canadian watermelon. – You crushed them. / – Yes. Is it even possible to crush a watermelon like that? It’s harder than you think. I don’t know about those watermelons, – but Korean watermelons… / – It must be impossible. Isn’t it impossible? I have doubts too. Are Korean watermelons harder? Is the skin harder? Right. We prepared some watermelons. He’s really going to try it? Korean watermelons are very hard to crush. (Will Julien fight against watermelon?) – I think he’ll be able to do it. / – Will that work? He’s going to do it. (He’s going to try crushing a Korean watermelon.) – I think he’s going to do it. / – I don’t think he is. Korean watermelon is really hard. (He shatters it.) This is it? (He enjoys the watermelon.) No way. – How did he crush this? / – It shattered. – No way. / – Chiseung. (Next is Chiseung.) Right. It got dented. Chiseung. – It’s my first time to try it. / – Give it a try. (The most famous health trainer gives it a try.) Try it. Try it. (It’s a watermelon party.) (He built superhuman strength) Give him a towel. (through his workouts.) Is it not that hard? Saeho will give it a try. – Is it okay if I do it? / – This is hard. – I want to try. / – I want to do it with my legs. Saeho might be able to do it too. – If I… Can I do it? / – He’s got muscles. – Yes. He’s got / – Can I do it now? the same body as Chiseung. – He might be able to do it. / – Yes. You have to flex your arms a little more. Oh, dear. – Can I do it? / – Yes. You can do it. It might ruin the mood. You look like Mr. Lee Sang Yong. Wait. He can’t do it. That hurts! That really hurts! It hurts. I will give it a try. – I will give it a try. / – Go, Jaeseok! You work out the most among us. – Not everyone can do it. / – It’s dented a little. Go! (Will he be able to redeem the MCs’ honor?) (He fails.) Gosh. – We can’t do it. / – It hurts. Why does it hurt so much? – Let me help you. / – It’s funny. (He tries it again with Julien.) – Just like that. / – It will burst. (Screaming) (He looks like someone who lost his country.) (Wailing) (Saeho’s slapstick act makes her wail too.) – It hurts so much here. / – It’s so funny. It really hurts. It’s like a rock. – It hurts too much. / – It’s not easy. – That hurts. / – Let’s stop it there. Gosh. Please give it up for them. – What they did is really incredible. / – It’s sweet. That’s the watermelon they crushed. It’s good. – You should eat it. / – It’s so sweet. It’s like you are eating watermelon after wakeboarding. Later, we… This is unbelievable. Ilgwon said Chansung could be better. I am – a huge fan of Chansung. / – Right. I’ve done boxing as a hobby, so I know. – Ordinary people can’t even last one round. / – Right. But when an athlete loses a fight, people blame him for being weak on the ground, for hitting too weak, and for having weak stamina. When they’ve never tried anything. They just judge the athletes as they please. – But Chansung could be better. / – How? – Can I say this? / – Of course, you can. He can’t beat me. (He provokes Chansung.) Will you be able to go home well? Why don’t you two fight in the ring for five minutes? You don’t have to do it if you don’t want to. I injured my left arm. – Will you use only 1 arm? / – I will use 1 arm. In the past, I sparred with Yoon Hyungbin with one arm. You will only use one arm? I sparred with him with one arm. I will be fine even if I don’t use this arm. Isn’t this humiliating? Can you do that? (Handicap Match of the Century) Come on. (Korean Zombie, Jung Chansung vs Thug Ahn, Ahn Ilgwon) Let’s go! (Beat Ilgwon with one arm.) (He’s born with superb hitting sense.) (What will happen during this match?) We got six guests today. Yeojin claims that she is the most competitive person among the six. Yes. I am scared of water. – Are you? / – Yes. But while shooting the film about free-diving… It’s different from scuba diving. You have to get in by just holding your breath. You dive in without any gear. But I wanted to get at least one solo cut. So I asked them for just one. I am bad at handling the ear pressure. – It’s called “equalizing.” / – Right. Because I have rhinitis, I have a hard time equalizing. It hurt, but I just went down anyway. – You have rhinitis. / – That’s very dangerous. – So I had to get treated. / – It’s very dangerous. You must’ve had inflammation in your ears. Chansung, I heard you are very good at not blinking. Really? Is it true? Before a fight, I always tell myself not to blink. Is it something you can control? – It became a habit. / – Do you see a fist approaching? Yes. I’d rather see it and then get hit. – Really? / – I’m going to get hit anyway. When you see it coming and get hit, you don’t faint. When you get punched out of the blue, you do. You faint if you don’t see it coming. – That’s when people faint. / – You can see it coming. When you clap in front of your eyes… You don’t blink if you are the one clapping. – He blinked. / – I didn’t blink. – You blinked. / – Do it again. See? You blinked. (Blinking) – I didn’t blink. / – You blinked. You blinked. (He blinked again.) But you won’t blink. – Try. / – If I set my mind to it. Clap. Clap. – This is too easy. / – Wait. – He’s amazing. / – You could even poke my eyes. (Poking) – Wait. / – You can’t poke him. – He actually poked him. / – Excuse me, Hyunmoo. He has to fight soon. How can you actually poke him? – I just pressed this area. / – But really… You can do it a few times, you blink – when it happens unexpectedly. / – Of course. (He fakes a punch out of the blue.) Gosh, it’s easy. – It’s fascinating. / – Would you blink? – You blinked. / – Of course, you blink. Everyone would blink. He did so much abdominal training that he can endure almost all punches. Before a fight, there are a few things I focus on. First, I train myself not to blink. – Your abs have to be hit to get hard. / – Right. I tell people to punch my abs and get hit. You intentionally get hit? When you control your breath, it’s not that painful. You won’t feel much pain. – Like this… / – You do that. It hurts. Let it out when you get hit. – Breathe out. / – Breathe out. – Does it not hurt? / – It doesn’t. Here we go. Why… (Jaeseok hit him after he said it.) – How can you hit me after that? / – I am sorry. – You have to get the timing right. / – Wrong timing. Let’s test Chansung’s abs. (We will test Chansung’s abdominal strength.) (Me?) – Why? / – He will hit your abs. Are you okay with it? Of course. Can I hit really hard? Sure thing. I doubt it’ll be powerful. Well… What was that? Chansung reckons that Hyunmoo doesn’t pack a punch. Right here. Hyunmoo, stop wasting your energy. My gosh. – It hurts, right? / – It doesn’t. I’ve trained for worse. – Gosh. / – Just the stomach. – You can hit me as hard as you like. / – Really? – Like this? / – Yes. – Punch him however you want. / – I’ll make the sound. (Grunting) (He punches with all his might.) (My wrists are starting to get numb.) My wrist hurts! (Chansung wins without even throwing a punch.) My wrist hurts. (Chansung’s abs stroke Hyunmoo’s fist.) Did you see it just now? The glove bounced off Chansung’s torso. I can’t believe it. (Sweating) (Hyunmoo’s punch bounced off his vibranium abs.) There’s a ball you use to harden your abs. Can we try this? Will you be okay with this? Yes, this is what we normally use. – How is it used? / – It’s heavy. – It’s so heavy. / – Isn’t that a bowling ball? It’s a medicine ball. – I train with that too. / – Really? – Go ahead. / – Let’s see you do it. – For Julien… / – This is nothing. Look at his abs. – My gosh. / – Are you all right? (He’s as fit as a professional athlete.) – Just like this. / – It seems to be hurting him. Chiseung… (His abs couldn’t be firmer.) Chiseung, you’re up. – Come on. / – I need to use the restroom. (Bulging) – What an excuse. / – You’ve been toning them as well. Shouldn’t a trainer be more agile? (Is it a piece of cake for him?) (Suffering) He was pretending to be unfazed. The medicine ball is no joke. It’s different for those who train in martial arts. Go ahead. – Here we go. / – All right! My gosh. (1st bounce) (2nd bounce) – This really hurts. / – Of course. He hit me right in the pit of my stomach. Can you aim for my lower stomach? – But that’s more dangerous. / – That would hurt more. What are you doing? (Distant) Are you kidding me? It’s quite heavy. – He was truly startled. / – Normally, – we’d aim for the pit. / – Is that so? – Jinhee, so you were cast in “Extreme Job.” / – Yes. I hear you won them over with a flying armbar. – What’s that? / – Isn’t it what we did? The first audition was done by reading a script. But since the character had action scenes, they wanted me to send a video to showcase how agile I can be. I wanted to look strong and powerful, so I shot a video of myself doing a flying armbar and that helped me pass the third audition. – I see. / – Gosh. – Can we take a look then? / – Sure.
