Happy Together I 해피투게더 EP.624 Part.1 [ENG/2020.02.06]On February 7, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
The magical Thursday night with top stars. – Happy Together! / – Happy Together! (Happy Together) Finally, Lunar New Year’s Day is only two days away. You can say that the New Year holiday starts today. – That’s right. / – Yes. Is there something you want to do during the holiday? I’ve decided to spend the holiday with my family. That’s too predictable. What kind of answer did you want? – Something funny. / – Something unusual. – A funny answer. / – Something special. I feel so tired already. – By the way, / – Yes? Hyunmoo has been trying something new this year without us knowing. – What is it? I didn’t know that. / – Not long ago, I saw him performing in a musical. – Really? / – Yes, it’s true. – He played in a musical? / – I’ll show you. Ta-da. Right here. That’s Hyunmoo. (Anyone would think he’s Hyunmoo.) I laughed so hard when I saw it. – I was so surprised. / – My goodness. – When was it? / – Isn’t this Hyunmoo? – No, it’s not me. / – Did you play a cameo role? – This is Suho. / – This is Suho? – Suho of EXO played in this musical. / – Goodness. Because this photo went viral, many people think that I became a musical actor. – I thought it was you, Hyunmoo. / – Exactly. I heard you texted Suho regarding this photo. – Right. / – Yes, I texted him. “Who is this actor? I have goosebumps.” “Unbelievable, right? That’s so funny.” “Many audience members didn’t laugh” “because they thought it was you.” Suho’s reaction was also surprising, and even a news article about the photo came out. – Right. / – “As If Suho Scolds Jun Hyunmoo”. It seems that the reporter also thought it was me. Sometimes, I can’t remember what I did in the past. So I thought that maybe I forgot about it. Then I realized I had never performed in a musical. Well, you could play in a musical in the future. – That’d be great. / – You can play a cameo role. – Exactly. / – That’d be nice. – You should find the right role. / – Of course. All right. Our guests today who love themselves so much are waiting at the back. – Shall we meet them now? / – Yes. – Please come out! / – Come on! Please come out! (Please come out!) – Oh, my. / – Hello. – Hello. / – Hello. – Hello. / – Hi, Junha. – Oh, my. Welcome. / – Hello. – Hello. / – Hi, Chunsik. – Congratulations. / – Hello. – Hi, Soyoung. / – Jaeseok, hello. – Hello. / – Hi, Sungho. – It’s nice to meet you. / – Hello. I’m not sure if I should describe them like this. They became legends by creating images of fools. It’s hard to tell if they’re acting or they actually are stupid. It’s No Brain Special. We’ll introduce them one by one. He’s the boss of all fools. He’s had the nicknames, Outsider King and Gourmand King for 20 years. “He always shares his love.” – Jung Junha! / – Hello. (The oldest fool, Jung Junha) He’s one of the funniest entertainers in Korea, known as Yu Jaeseok of the home shopping network. He started as a substitute host and became a main radio show host. The hardworking workaholic fool, Moon Chunsik! Hello. It’s nice to meet you all. She’s the comedienne who represents “Gag Concert”. She looks innocent and elegant, but she’s actually quite clumsy. – Comedienne Park Soyoung! / – Park Soyoung! – Hi, everyone. Happy New Year. / – She’s so pretty! Thank you so much. – Thank you. / – Oh, this is how she acts. He’s been the leader of Koyote for 20 years. He’s famous for his image of a fool as a singer and an entertainer. But he’s a natural-born genius on variety shows. – Kim Jongmin! / – Kim Jongmin! – He’s so handsome! / – That was good. He created the best character on “Gag Concert”. The fool of the century following Maenggu and Younggu, the everlasting Bbacoo, Yun Sungho! “Don’t do it!” Yun Sungho! – “Don’t do it!” / – “Don’t do it!” I said that we’ll have the fools special today. (This isn’t the rankings of fools, right?) This isn’t the rankings, right? You mean, I’m the stupidest? That’s not what I meant. I said it so you guys wouldn’t misunderstand our intention. “He always shares his love.” It’s been a while. Have you been well? Yes, I’ve been well. It’s been a long time. – I… / – We haven’t seen you on TV – for such a long time. / – It’s been four years since the last time I came on Happy Together. Right. It’s been a long time since the last time I was on any TV show. There was a rumor that you had practically retired. – I heard that rumor too. / – I heard that you said it yourself. – A long time ago, / – Right? – on “Infinite Challenge”, / – Yes. I was asked what I would do after the show ended. I said, “I guess it will also be the end of my career.” – Exactly. / – I said I would retire. Young people these days think he’s the owner of a restaurant. – I’m not joking. / – A short rib skewer restaurant. He meets my stylist more often than me. My stylist’s office is – Right across the street. / – close to his restaurant. His stylist tells me how he’s doing. He asked my stylist to tell me to visit his restaurant. You could’ve just texted me. You never came, but I didn’t want to burden you. – How have you been? / – Right. I’ve been talking about my skewer restaurant. – Other than that… / – You brought it up. Have you done nothing else? – I’m running a restaurant. / – Don’t poke and pry. – Do you have a new hobby or… / – Don’t poke and pry. I recently opened up a fish cake restaurant. – A fish cake restaurant? / – Yes. – That’s an important event. / – Pardon me? – It’s an important event to share. / – You’re right. I’m running four restaurants at the moment. One of them is going well, and one isn’t. – And another one is picking up. / – That’s great. Rumor has it that you’re earning more than you did as a TV celebrity. – I earned much more before. / – Is that so? (I earned much more as a TV celebrity.) Things are rough for small business owners. – He’s right. I heard / – Oh, I see. they are going through a hard time. – That’s right. / – At the end of last year, Yu Sanseul won the Best Rookie Award. – Yes, I did. / – I heard that Junha also won an award. – I read a news article about it. / – Yes, I did. I’m a certified traditional Korean wine expert. – I know that. / – Since my work is related to it, it was considered to be helpful for the farmers in Korea. That’s why you won the award. RDA gave me the Achievement Award. (Achievement Award for Development of Farming Areas) Not everyone can win this award. I was so grateful. I was told that I would receive an award, so I went to the ceremony. It was a huge one. All the farmers in Korea attended the ceremony. – There were more than 1,000. / – I see. I was so surprised. You wrote a hashtag on your social media, – “Are you watching, Yu Sanseul?” / – Yes. You could’ve just texted me. Why did you post it on social media? He wants to get articles out about it. Why do you always leave such a comment on social media? (You know I’m an attention addict.) You know I’m an attention addict. (He confessed he’s an attention addict.) – Finally, you said it honestly. / – Yes. – Of course. / – Then I can understand him. – He admitted it. / – That felt good. – Then it makes sense. / – That was good. Okay. Good. Actually, while Jaeseok was on a concert tour as Yu Sanseul, I attended a lot of events related to traditional Korean wine. – I see. / – So… What kind of events are there? Korea Wine Festival and… But wine is not a traditional Korean drink. Yes, it is. – Wine is? / – Korean style wine. Is there such a kind? People usually think of makgeolli – when they hear traditional drink. / – That’s true. But makgeolli is one of the types of traditional Korean drink. Makgeolli, medicinal drinks, distilled spirits, wine, liqueur, and so on. – Liqueur? / – Oh, my. He’s so smart. He just had to say that wine is a type of traditional Korean drink, – but he even talked about liqueur. / – Liqueur. – I didn’t ask about liqueur. / – He got excited. – It was too much information. / – Sort of. Anyway, I attended a lot of events. Recently, I attended the yeast forum in Chuncheon. – “The yeast forum”? / – “The yeast forum”? – It’s used to make makgeolli. / – We never asked. – It’s for makgeolli. / – I went to that event. I’m quite famous in that industry. You introduced him as Yu Jaeseok of the home shopping network. I’m Yu Jaeseok of the traditional Korean alcoholic drink industry. (Yu Jaeseok of traditional Korean alcoholic drink) I host shows like a wine talk show. – As a talk show host. / – A wine talk show. Is that you at the wine talk show? I introduce different kinds. Those who are interested in wine come to the show. I’ve had only five people in the audience. Our staff is asking us to move on. – We’ve been talking / – Why did you even ask? only about Junha so far. I wanted to talk about me since I haven’t been on TV for a while. Keep it moderate because we have other guests too. We’re here too, you know. – I understand. / – Junha’s everlasting partner… I’m sorry, but we’re running out of time. Of course. Please move on. Looking at Chunsik’s face, I can tell he’s a successful man. Oh, please. No way. You can tell many things – from a person’s hairstyle. / – He seems very relaxed. – He looks relaxed. / – Indeed. – Chunsik is / – He’s very successful. – very successful. / – He is, indeed. I can see him on every home shopping show I watch. That can’t be true. I do just a few of them. He’s also co-hosting a radio show – with Jung Sunhee. / – That’s right. He’s the host of “Radio Now”. Then why do you not do any TV shows? I feel pressured to be on TV. – What do you mean? / – I feel so nervous on TV. – Really? / – Yes. I can make jokes naturally when the camera is off. I speak comfortably. I can be as funny as Hyunmoo. However, whenever I’m on a TV show… – The red light on a camera… / – Yes. – Once it’s turned on, / – You feel pressured. my heart starts racing. – Really? / – As I’m too nervous, I can’t be as funny as I usually am. You looked very natural on the show where you introduce movies. There’s no one in the studio. – There’s no one to intimidate me. / – I see. That was the problem. It’s simply a fight against the camera. Don’t you feel comfortable here? How do you feel? I feel comfortable as I’m close to the other guests. And above all, there’s a chunk of meat I can bite off here. I’m talking about Junha. – “A chunk of meat”? / – Since he’s here with me… – You look so cheerful today. / – That suits Junha. – He looked so cheerful. / – I’m here to bite him. Also, I’ve been working hard and having fun on my radio show. – Of course. / – I know something about Chunsik because I listen to the radio often. – He’s great at his job. / – He wasn’t a radio DJ. He started his career as a guest on radio shows. He built his career like that for a very long time, and he worked as a substitute radio show host too. I filled in for Hyunmoo too. That’s right. As he accumulated experience, he was able to get a job as a radio show host. He didn’t get this job overnight. Chunsik has solid experience in hosting a radio show. MBC Radio loves him so much. – He’s famous as a radio DJ. / – Exactly. He’s so good at his job. He’s the star of MBC Radio, and Nam Changhee is the star of KBS Radio. – That’s right. / – Yes, he is. – He’s hosting a radio show. / – Changhee is? – Yes, he is. / – Yes. Is Changhee really in that position? – Yes, he is now. / – Yes. You have no idea about what’s going on in the industry. Aren’t you stuck in the past? – Exactly. / – But I… Watch more TV instead of attending the yeast forum. – That’s so funny. / – Instead of drinking alcohol. – He’s biting him. / – Gosh. “The yeast forum”. It’s so good to see their friendship. However, I heard you two fought because of seasoned cucumber. You told them about that? – What does it mean? / – I can’t believe you. – Why did you fight? / – I have nothing to hide. – Why did you fight? / – I have nothing to lose. I will tell you everything. Two years ago, Junha opened up a barbecue restaurant. He called me so many times, telling me to come. – I’m sure he called you guys too. / – Of course. One day, Junha said he would be a little late after the shoot for “Infinite Challenge”. I went to his restaurant with Go Myunghwan. We ordered some meat and enjoyed it. We were wondering if we could get any free food, and Junha called us to say he’d give us some free food. We were expecting a gourmet dish. But it was seasoned cucumber. I thought, “He has a lot of meat at the restaurant.” – “He could’ve given us some meat.” / – Continue. – I was a little disappointed. / – Right. Myunghwan and I were not very happy about it. So I texted Junha. “Where did you get cucumber in this winter?” “It’s so delicious.” “I can taste the artificial flavors” “that remind me of my hometown.” “This is amazing.” I acted up to be funny. Then Junha came to the restaurant. – He got upset as soon as he came. / – Why? “You should’ve said nice things.” “I just opened up this restaurant.” “Why would you talk about my food like that?” – Why was he so sensitive? / – “I traveled overseas” “to learn how to make this seasoned cucumber.” “Do you think it’s a joke?” “It took me one and a half years” “to learn how to make it.” – He sounds so sensitive. / – I thought to myself, “Why would it take so long to learn how to make it?” “It took me over a year to learn.” It doesn’t taste like that, Junha. It tastes like you washed it and sprinkled artificial flavors. The seasoned cucumber is our signature menu. That’s nonsense. Meat should be your signature menu because it’s a barbecue restaurant. Then should I have opened up a cucumber restaurant? He got so upset – and yelled at me. / – A cucumber restaurant? – Then… / – He got riled up. – Chunsik. / – Since he seemed so angry, I was taken aback. I mean, it’s not that upsetting. I said I’d pay the bill, but he refused my money. He told us to leave. – Why is he so grumpy? / – Why did you treat your friends who visited your restaurant like that? He said, “I don’t need your money. Just leave.” – I thought he was petty / – He’s like a baby. just as he had always been. He called me a while after that. He could’ve said, “Sorry. I was in a bad mood then.” But he said, “Chunsik, have you reflected upon what you did wrong?” (Bossy) Why should I reflect on myself? It’s not like I was a student in a detention room. That’s what he’s like. What was more surprising was… A week later, we met – at the SBS Entertainment Awards. / – That’s right. I saw the cast members of “Infinite Challenge”. I said hello to every one of them. I said hello to Junha too, but he avoided eye contact. He said hi like this. “Hi.” – He’s so petty. / – Anyway… – This is so unfair. / – I won the Best Rookie DJ Award – You won an award that day. / – of Radio Category. So I went up on the stage and gave my acceptance speech. I saw a man with a large physique standing up and applauding me enthusiastically. That’s right. He stood up. It was Junha. (Chunsik is giving his acceptance speech.) (A standing ovation) It was Junha. I mean, we had a huge fight just one week before that. – I bet he was on camera. / – Exactly. There was a camera right in front of him. He was even teary-eyed. That’s because he was on camera. – He got upset / – He’s the worst. – at his friend of 20 years / – I’m thirsty. because of cucumber, but when he saw the camera, – He’s scary. / – he stood up and applauded. – You must’ve been scared. / – Seeing him like that, I had goosebumps all over my body. I thought, “Is that why he was cast for ‘Infinite Challenge’?” (Is this how a veteran entertainer should be?) – The seasoned cucumber story. / – Great. (The truth of the seasoned cucumber case) – What a funny story. / – Gosh, seriously. It wasn’t like that. This is so unfair. – Why do you think it’s unfair? / – It’s true that I was stressed out for many reasons back then. I got a little upset over something petty, so I felt apologetic toward him. – Stop hitting me. / – At the awards ceremony… I’ll tell you the truth. Are you going to exaggerate it? I applauded sincerely. I was happy to see Chunsik receiving the award. – I felt… / – Tell me honestly. Did you know the camera was there filming you or not? The cameraman came up to me to film me. I didn’t stand up because I saw the cameraman. He came up to me because I was applauding. Just like baseball players see the ball and hit it, we entertainers show reactions when we see a camera. Don’t act like you don’t know that. – Actually, I was next to him. / – Right. Did he get up when the camera approached him? Or did the camera approach him when he got up? Nobody knows. Leaving that as a mystery, let’s move on. – Great. / – When you got the call from us, you thought it was a prank. My manager called and told me that I was going on Happy Together. I said, “You’re joking.” “This is the New Year prank, isn’t it?” And he said it wasn’t a prank. Actually, my parents don’t know that I’m on this show. Why is that? I still thought this might be a prank. So I didn’t get to tell them. – You were worried. / – I was worried. You were worried it would be a joke. I can’t believe that I am sitting next to such big stars. – Don’t say that. / – It’s an honor. You are very busy on educational shows. I am known as Yu Jaeseok of children’s TV. – Right. / – I am. Why are there so many Yu Jaeseoks in Korea? How is everyone Yu Jaeseok? You become him if you are successful in one field. Soyoung is the president among children. – Yes. / – You’re famous among children. Your show is doing very well, isn’t it? It’s doing well. On the show “Bang Bang”, I acted as Nara the Scientist. – I acted as a scientist. / – Right. Now, I joined the show “Boni Hani” with a new character named – Simpani. / – Sim what? – Simpani. / – Simpani. I am the judge. – The judge. / – Right. – The judge. / – That’s cute. You are popular among children. Can you realize how popular you are? I sometimes can. I have a lot of young mothers around me because of my age. My friends would call me and ask me to talk to their children. Right. My friend’s child was a picky eater. So my friend asked me to be Nara the Scientist – and talk to her child. / – How did you do it? My voice tone has to change. Hello, friends. What? You are a picky eater? When you only eat what you want, your teeth will turn yellow. That’s perfect. – She’s really good. / – When I said that, the child said, “Okay, Nara the Scientist.” “I won’t be picky anymore.” – They are so cute. / – That’s crazy. Her voice – It’s perfect. / – is perfect for children’s shows. I am very hyper, you see. – Your voice is perfect. / – Thank you. Thank you! I have to be hyper. She can talk to children very well too. I have children myself, and when someone like her talks to the children, – they listen. / – They change. It makes me want to work harder. He’s the goblin of “Two Days and One Night”. Right. The goblin of “Two Days and One Night”. Everyone has left, but he’s still there. The producers left as well as the writers. The members changed too, but he’s still there, lonelily looking after the show. He’s Gong Yoo of “Two Days and One Night”. You don’t know this, but there’s actually something in front of “Two Days and One Night”. It should be “Kim Jongmin’s Two Days and One Night”. – Right. / – What? – This is true. / – Can’t you admit it? – I admit it. / – They are the same. It used to be “Yu Jaeseok’s Infinite Challenge”. – Of course. / – Right. Usually, when guests come, they go to say hello to Jaeseok. I asked him, “Do you want to go say hi to Jaeseok?” He said, “I can say hi to him later. Why now?” (Did he refuse to greet Jaeseok?) – Did he cross his legs? / – That’s understandable. – He really did that. / – He’s different. – I had to get changed. / – You had to get changed. – I had to get changed. / – I am sorry. I am sorry. The first thing he’s said on the show is, “I had to get changed.” Both of them are Grand Award winners. – Right. / – Both of them are. – Yes. / – Why would he go and say hi? Anyway, a new season began. He’s Gong Yoo of “Two Days and One Night”. How is it working with the new members? Before this season, I always worked – with older members. / – Right. – Junghoon was born in 1978. / – Youn Junghoon. He’s a year older than me. And everyone else is younger than me. (The rest are younger than him.) I don’t know what to do. To put it in a good way, he’s the leader. To put it in a bad way, he’s the oldie. – To the younger members. / – Jongmin became an oldie. You have to be careful. I used to be the young boy. – Right. / – He was in Team YB. I joined the show when I was in my 20s. But now, I am in Team OB. – Right. / – Right. It’s reality. (He’s a member of Team OB now.) The younger members are almost 12 years younger. He’s playing the role Sugeun used to play. Right. – Being with Hodong. / – Right. I don’t know what to do. I saw them at the awards ceremony. And the members of “Two Days and One Night” – seemed to rely on Jongmin. / – That’s right. They rely on me very much. It was Seonho and some other member’s first time at the entertainment awards ceremony. They were really nervous. Being nervous, they relied on me. I’ve been there many times. I go there every year. – So I wasn’t nervous. / – No doubt. This time, I had to present an award. It was my first time presenting the award. – Have you never done it? / – I’ve never done it. – Really? / – No. – I thought I wouldn’t be nervous. / – But? I felt so nervous. (He felt very nervous.) Presenting the award feels different. – Right. / – I felt so nervous. (He pretended to be calm.) I said I wasn’t nervous. I walked, pretending to be relaxed. But I started getting really nervous. When you work with variety show stars, they say to you, “Why are you so nervous?” – And that relaxes you. / – They joke around. I said a joke, and Junghoon only followed the script. (Junghoon followed the script faithfully.) – He’s an actor. / – He should’ve played along. That’s crazy. What did you do? (He won the thigh wrestling,) (and that really surprised me.) (That’s not what’s in the script.) (They are doing a good job.) (Junghoon followed the script in a natural manner.) (And Jongmin got flustered.) (You’ve won the Grand Award.) (He still follows the script.) (Who do you think will win the Grand Award today?) (Feeling nervous, Jongmin’s mind went blank.) (By a narrow margin… I don’t know who will win.) – I started getting nervous. / – Of course. I didn’t know what to do. I was reading the script, and I was so nervous. So I ended up skipping the entire middle section. (He wasn’t himself.) You skipped it. Junghoon didn’t get nervous. He just had to follow the script. He just followed the script. I wanted to hide. That’s really funny. I watched the two presenting the award. I thought they had terrible teamwork. They must’ve been very nervous. By the way, Junghoon is too driven that he recently got injured. I was worried about him. – He injured his finger. / – Oh, no. – My goodness. / – Why? He was trying too hard. – He doesn’t spare himself. / – He doesn’t. So he got hurt. I gave him advice when this happened. Finally, he’s acting like the leader. – Should I write it down? / – You should remember this. – Don’t try too hard. / – Don’t try too hard. – Who were you saying it to? / – Don’t try too hard. – Who were you saying this to? / – To Junghoon. I told him not to work until he gets hurt. I told him he can’t work hard for a few months if he gets hurt. (He might waste a few months if he gets hurt.) – That’s the leader. / – He has to see the big picture. This moment isn’t the only important moment. – He’s like… / – “Kim Jongmin’s” – “Two Days and One Night”. / – “One Night”. – Great. / – That’s awesome. Jongmin, the leader of “Two Days and One Night” said something great. “Don’t work too hard.” – It’s fine to be bad. / – Go with the flow. – You can carry on. / – Right. That’s the trend. – He’s right about that. / – He’s great. – You are right. / – It’s fine if you are bad today. Don’t beat yourself for days just because you did badly today. Don’t get stirred too easily. I heard there are a few fools in the team too. Among the new members. – I was so shocked. / – Why? I couldn’t tell if they were slow or I got better. (They can’t kick a ball.) Go. (The new members only looked great on the outside.) (If we go with capitals, Jongmin will save us.) (Jongmin is the smartest member of Season 4.) I’ve been on variety shows for 15 years. I’ve done it for a long time. And you solve a lot of quizzes on variety shows. I think I learned a lot from them. You learn quite a lot from those. I studied the most while being on variety shows. Jongmin knows all about Korean history. That’s a misunderstanding. – Is he like Seol Minseok? / – He is. I’m presenting a history variety show with Minseok. – Right. You are. / – And Jongmin is really good. – Really? / – He knows a lot of things. – Really? / – So why do you become a fool on that show? Are you putting on an act? You can’t even remember the names of the kings. No, I am actually bad at remembering those. But you were so good on our show. – Why… / – I forget things easily. I think – he changes his character / – He changes. according to the program. He just acts stupid. – He’s a genius. / – He’s a genius. He’s a genius. So you’re “an intermittent genius”. (He’s confirmed to be a genius.) – An intermittent genius. / – Yes. – An intermittent genius? / – An intermittent genius. – Is there such a thing? / – An intermittent genius. He’s called that because he sometimes becomes a genius. An intermittent genius. When you meet him in person, he is very serious. He’s unbelievable. – Yes. He has great manners too. / – Yes. We will end it by saying that he’s an intermittent genius. Later, we will talk more about “Kim Jongmin’s Two Days and One Night”. He will always be Bbacoo. Please welcome Yun Sungho. – “Don’t do it!” / – “Don’t do it!” You two joined SBS at the same time. – Yes. / – We did. He’s one of your good friends. He’s one of my favorite people. We spent our 20s together. When we first debuted, our situations were different. I was a commercial model, so my face was known. Saeho looked at me as if I was a celebrity. Really? – Why are you laughing? / – But it’s true. It’s funny that you said that yourself. – As soon as he debuted, / – The burger commercial. – he shot a burger commercial. / – With Yang Meera. – Right. / – Also, he was the reporter of the famous show, “Curiosity Paradise”. You must’ve been very happy to see Saeho becoming popular. I was really happy. When we were rookies, – we struggled so much. / – Yes. The show we were in closed. They hired rookie comedians for a comedy show. – It closed in 9 weeks. / – Just after 9 weeks, the show closed. We were out of work. It was so tough that we once did this. I was there with Saeho and one other fellow comedian. They were both younger than me. I really wanted to drink. We were out of work, and it was tough. But in my pocket, there was a 10-dollar bill. It wasn’t enough even to drink at a street bar. We thought about what we could do with that money. We thought we would buy drinks at a store and drink it at the office for the comedians. – It was empty. / – Nobody was using the office. There were no shows, so it wasn’t being used. The three of us went and drank. But something happened there. What happened? We didn’t have money, – so we only had chips. / – A few bags of chips. But we bought about ten bottles of soju. Sungho and I were drinking in the office. We only had chips to eat, and we felt really hungry. There was a fridge in the office, so we opened it. There was braised beef, pickled perilla leaves… There were delicious things. And seasoned bean sprouts. We really wanted to have them. We didn’t know whose they were. We were drunk, so we just got them out and ate them. We thought we’d eat them and sleep at the TV station. My colleague and I went to the night-duty room and slept. Sungho said he would sleep in the office alone. We drank and went to sleep. We got into big trouble the next day. When I woke up, I had 21 missed calls. “Hello? Where are you? What happened yesterday?” – I asked him what happened. / – Because the office wasn’t being used, the cleaners were using the room. – Right. / – As their lounge. – The food was theirs. / – They came to work at 5 a.m. – It was their food. / – We weren’t famous, so they didn’t know who we were. When they opened the door, a Buddhist monk was lying on the sofa of the office wearing only his underwear. There were nine bottles of soju in front of him, and he had finished their braised beef. – The Buddhist monk. / – He ate meat. They didn’t know who I was. They were so shocked. They called someone and said a Buddhist monk broke in and fell asleep in the comedians’ office. They weren’t that surprised about the drinking part. But they were shocked that the monk had braised beef. Soju and braised beef. They thought he had come to the TV station to report a case. They made it a big deal. I… My goodness. Junha. There is a song about him. (He sings with his nose.) There’s a song like that too. He’s the master of acting as a fool. I heard you sometimes get misunderstood by people. That’s not the problem. The problem is that he keeps singing that song. When did I sing it like that? (It’s very similar to what Jaeseok did.) – When did I do that? / – How did you sing it then? – Show us. / – I don’t sing it like that. (He sings it lightly.) The song is bad. You ruined the song. (He’s great at copying Junha.) – Yes. / – Right. He’s said so much about me on “Infinite Challenge”. He once said I fell off a persimmon tree. People actually ask me while drinking if it really happened. – Really? / – Yes. Didn’t it really happen? No. – Did you make it up? / – When people joke about a stupid character, they say stuff like that a lot. – His IQ is… He’s mentioned it. / – Is your IQ 124? Someone asked, so… In middle school, he ranked 15 out of 1,000 students. – Really? / – I was smart in middle school. I didn’t do as well in high school. There were a little over 1,000 students in my year. – Really? / – Yes. Honestly, Jaeseok always presented the show on “Infinite Challenge”. He sometimes gave a quiz. Yes. He always had the script and gave the quiz. He didn’t look stupid. – He knew the answers. / – Right. And yet he sometimes looked down on me. He knew all the answers. I could read his eyes. – He didn’t know the answer. / – He didn’t. But he would still say, “You really don’t know this?” He could say that because he was the presenter. – He didn’t know the answer. / – When it was something I didn’t know, I said, “I didn’t know this.” – No. No. / – Sometimes, he looked down on me. – I know it. / – Really? “You don’t know this?” I was trying to help. I apologize if you were offended. He’s so nice. You became the villain. – I am sorry. / – He’s a terrible person. It’s just my bad habit. It is. Among us, there’s someone Jongmin acknowledges as Mr. No Brain. – Who is it? / – It means he’s stupid. – Among us? / – Yes. – It’s the fool special. / – I wouldn’t say “no brain”. I heard Junha’s IQ is high. But whenever I see him… I don’t know if he’s stupid. But he doesn’t seem smart. – Right. / – How dare you say that? This is the fool special, but you are the only fool here. The rest of us just act stupid. – You are just plain stupid. / – Wait. Junha. Don’t you agree? He’s stupid. – Junha, don’t be so direct. / – We are not stupid. (He suddenly acts stupid.) All right. I thought Jongmin was really smart. We were going abroad, on the plane, he was talking to a foreign flight attendant in English. – Really? / – He was ordering food. Really? Jongmin must’ve thought I was too far away. He was taking ten minutes to order the food. I thought, “Jongmin was acting stupid all along.” The food came out later. He took a bite and frowned. I asked Jongmin what was wrong. He said, “I didn’t order this.” (What a surprise.) – Jongmin. / – They couldn’t communicate. (It’s hilarious.) – What did he say? / – What did you say? – I was curious. / – What did you say? Whenever I go abroad, I struggle so much. It’s so hard to talk to foreigners. – He seemed fluent. / – He seemed very fluent. – It’s really funny. / – It just took long to talk. Yes. People say Jongmin is an intermittent genius. I am still shocked. I present “Brainiacs Wanted”, you know. – It’s a show featuring geniuses. / – Right. The writers gave them a question on the spot. We told them to solve it. He got the answer in just a second. – I was surprised too. / – Even the people with good academic backgrounds struggle to get one answer. How did you do it so fast? It was like an IQ test. I just moved my hands, and I got the answer. – Actually, / – I was really shocked. there are quite a few anecdotes that prove that he’s a genius. – There are. / – We wonder if he’s a genius. Just yesterday, we were on a history variety show. We had to choose something that didn’t cause the March 1st Movement. He got it right away. But on his show he couldn’t memorize the kings’ names. We want to know who Jongmin really is. – We can’t tell. / – He’s really confusing. If we were to look at it with critical eyes, he could be the monster created by the TV industry. – TV Monster. / – I think you are right. He’s the TV Monster. He’s the monster created by variety shows. He’s the monster created by variety shows. I think that’s Jongmin. Sometimes, he’s actually scary. – Right. / – He’s scary. He’s a genius. He changes according to the program. – Who’s the real you? / – He plays each role. He surely is the celebrity – best suited for the TV industry. / – Right. – Don’t you think so? He’s so funny. / – I agree. People are debating whether he’s a genius or not. He’s taken the Mensa IQ test to check it. – Really? / – Really? – You were curious. / – Did you take the test? I took the test on a show. I was so curious about myself. – The highest score is 156. / – Yes. – It was the Mensa test. / – Even if it’s over 156, – Mensa. / – it says 156. – Even if you get 200. / – It can’t go higher. I took the test. I wondered if ever I was… – You could be a genius. / – People call you a genius. People kept… I didn’t know. I didn’t study much, so I thought I was just an idiot. But people called me a genius. They kept wondering about me. Maybe there was something about me I didn’t know about. There can be something. I wanted to shock people. I took the test very seriously. – I solved every question. / – Meticulously? I didn’t get to solve a few questions at the end. – You didn’t have time. / – I didn’t have time. – You were too serious. / – I didn’t have time. – I didn’t have time. / – I solved everything – and waited. / – And? I waited for the score. I got 100. – That’s high. / – Isn’t that high? What? My IQ was 100. – Your IQ was 100. / – 3 digits. – Isn’t that good? / – He didn’t get everything right. You didn’t get a score of 100. Your IQ was 100. I thought he got a perfect score. – His IQ is 100. / – A dolphin’s IQ is 80. They said my IQ was 100. So I asked how I got 100. The person said you get 100 if you get 100 or lower. (You get 100 if you get 100 or lower.) So it can’t be measured. It can’t measure the IQ higher than 156 and lower than 100. So dolphins and orangutans have an IQ of 100 too. (We all have an IQ of 100.) I got so disappointed in myself. I don’t know if it’s right, but it was the lowest IQ Mensa has ever seen. It’s really funny. Chunsik, you feel wronged to be on this special. – Yes. / – You are smart. I wouldn’t say smart. I’m here with people who are optimized to play stupid. Are you saying you are excluded? I have low self-esteem, you know. I think I am too handsome to be a fool. – Right. / – You almost didn’t get to join “No Brain Survivor” because you’re handsome. That’s what I thought. I don’t look like a fool. So I had to act hard. People who were born stupid don’t even have to be nervous. He had to just go on the show and do this. People cracked up. He doesn’t think about not being funny enough. You failed to be funny. But Chunsik talks well. – He’s eloquent. / – He’s voluble. See? This is how he makes people laugh. It wouldn’t be funny if I went as myself. So I tried really hard to shape my character. I tried wearing a wig, putting a mole on my face, wearing a mustache, and giving myself a runny nose. I tried everything I could. Nothing worked. You must remember. – I dressed like a kindergartener. / – Right. I wore a kindergartener’s uniform and colorful socks. I wore a wig like this. – Right. / – I put red makeup on my cheeks. I made myself look stupid by doing that. (The one who struggled) (versus the one who didn’t struggle) Sungho studied in China, so he speaks Chinese well. – He speaks Chinese well. / – You studied there? – He went there for three years. / – You didn’t know? Don’t you know what I am up to? (Don’t you know what I am up to?) – How would we know it? / – How would we know it? I can’t even remember – what I did last week. / – By the way… Sungho, I am sorry to say it, – Do we have to know? / – but not everyone is following what you are doing. You shouldn’t think that way. But we are in the same field. – We are in the same industry. / – It’s not like I went last month. I went about 3 or 4 years ago. – Right. / – Really? You went there to learn Chinese. That’s why you weren’t around. He actually lived in the dormitory of a Chinese academy. That’s impressive. Then you must be fluent in Chinese. – Of course, he is. / – Well, I’m the most fluent in Chinese among people in this room. – That’s right. / – I heard him speak Chinese. It was like a work of art. I thought I was watching a movie. I passed Chinese Proficiency Test Level One. What? – Level One? / – Yes. Level Six is the highest. – Level One is the lowest. / – Look at him. When I tell people that I passed – HSK Level One, / – It’s easy to misunderstand. they go, “Really?” – HSK Level 6 is the highest. / – Level 6. I passed HSK Level Five. You are like a native speaker. HSK Level Five. That’s really impressive. If you are above Level Four, you can converse freely. There is a difference between speaking the language and taking a test on the language. Some people are good at the former, others are good at the latter. But I did pretty well in both aspects. – That means you are good at both. / – Seriously. It’s not like that. – I was lucky. / – I am curious about his skills. Do you have a lot of interest in language? I didn’t get good grades back in school. In my class, there were about… I didn’t want such a serious answer. There were about 50 students and I sat at the back. – One day… / – You found out about your talent. Yes. I realized that I learn faster than others. It’s incredible that he passed – HSK Level 5 in 3 years. / – It was less than 2 years. – You are good. / – That’s incredible. There is another story I want to discuss. When he was studying in China, – he got rejected by a North Korean woman. / – Really? My goodness. “Rejected” is a strong word! – We don’t know what happened. / – You got turned down. – What happened? / – In my class, there were students from about 20 countries who were learning Chinese. A North Korean student sat next to me. – She sat next to you. / – She was studying abroad. She made me incredibly nervous. I had never seen a North Korean before. We never get to see them up close. That’s right. I was so fascinated that I wanted a photo with her. “Would you take a photo…” (Speaking fluent Chinese) “Would you take a photo with me?” She refused. I thought it was about the situation between the two countries. A month later, I saw her take photos with a German man. I asked her why she wouldn’t take photos with me. “Is it because of the situation between our countries?” She told me, “It’s because you look weird.” (It’s because you look weird.) It wasn’t about the situation. It wasn’t about that. “It’s because you look weird.” “It’s because you look weird.” “There are no men like you in North Korea.” (Bald men are rare in North Korea.) – My goodness. / – Is that really the case? “You look like an octopus.” You thought she didn’t want to take photos with you because of the situation between the two countries. I thought that was the case. We became close after a while. (We are close now.) – She said you look weird. / – Seriously. Junha and Chunsik’s “No Brain Survivor” was incredibly popular back in the days. – Seriously. / – It was so much fun. It helped Junha become who he is right now. – That’s right. / – Back then, I played most of the fool roles. Even before that skit, Junha played foolish characters – endlessly. / – I played so many fools. My nickname was the Welcome Rice Cake of Comedy. Whenever a new skit came to be, I got recruited. The Welcome Rice Cake of Comedy and Spicy Taste for Six Weeks. Those were my nicknames. What was Spicy Taste for Six Weeks? The skits I was in got canceled in six weeks. – Spicy Taste for 6 Weeks. / – After 6 weeks, – the character seems repetitive. / – That’s right. Spicy Taste for Six Weeks. Didn’t you have popular phrases? “That’s like killing me twice.” That’s like killing Santa Claus twice. I knew Junha back then. I watched the skit and thought, – “He is successful now.” / – That’s right. He was incredibly popular. – Chunsik, didn’t you have one? / – That’s right. Whenever there was a quiz, I went… “Count it as the right answer, please.” Let’s have a quiz like we did back then. Here comes the first question. Who was the ancient mathematician who founded the theorem about a right triangle? – Pythagoras? / – What? Pythagoras? One more time. What’s the answer? Pita Bread? Incorrect. (Incorrect) For goodness’ sake. (Count it as the right answer, please.) There were many funny answers like “Pita Bread”. It was entertaining. Soyoung, I heard that you made many funny mistakes. – Yes. / – There is a story that almost turned a funeral upside down. – She almost did that. / – That’s right. – Yes. / – Let’s hear it. This mistake of mine is well-known among comedians. – Tell us about it. / – You know, I went to a funeral by myself for the first time. I didn’t know where to lay down the chrysanthemum. I just heard that I need to lay down the chrysanthemum. As soon as I entered, I picked up a chrysanthemum and stuck it into the pot. My goodness. Everyone burst out laughing. – It’s the other way around. / – You need to take one from the pot. She took a chrysanthemum someone had laid down. I put it in the pot. Did you bow to the pot? Well, I… She did it the other way around. A lot of people make such mistakes at funerals. I didn’t know. I didn’t know how many times I had to bow. The show that made people remember Jongmin as a fool is “Two Days and One Night”. There are stories of your mistakes. They aren’t stories of my mistakes, – but ignorance. / – Tell us about them. I don’t know many idioms. Give us a few examples. – What was it? / – It’s obvious. – “A beauty…” / – Then you fill out the rest. The producer said, “A beauty…” I ended up saying, “Must die early”. – “Must die early”? / – Yes. – “Must die early”. / – It’s “A beauty dies early.” I got confused. A beauty isn’t a pest. You said “Must die early” instead of “Dies early”. “A beauty must die early.” Then the first part was “Straight”, but I forgot about “To the point”. I said, “Straight house”. “Straight house”. It was “Straight to the point”. “Ome”. I didn’t know what “Omebulmang” meant. – “Ome”. / – I answered, “Omega”. – “Omega”. / – I watched this episode. – It was “Omebulmang”. / – “Omega”. You feel so thankful when someone does that on variety shows. – That’s right. / – You feel so thankful. It isn’t entertaining to watch people get it right. – Seriously. / – There is a video I watch when I am feeling down – in which he learns how to cook. / – I watched it! “This is how you cut it.” “Try it.” Then he repeated, “This is how you cut it.” – He repeated the words. / – “Try it.” Here are jujubes. (Jongmin is learning how to cook.) They don’t look good as they are. Make sure the red part is showing. Try it. – “Make sure…” / – No! Make this. I didn’t tell you to repeat the words. (I didn’t tell you to repeat the words.) – Make this. / – I see. Here. (The intermittent genius’ big mistake) I was like, “Is he a genius?” He is a genius. You once had a slip of the tongue about lactobacillus in kimchi. I said colon bacillus by mistake. Colon bacillus? – What did you say? / – I said, “There is colon bacillus in kimchi.” (This genius has no limits.) I made such mistakes. – I am jealous. / – At a restaurant? – He is funny. / – It happened back in the days. It was an honest mistake. – It was. / – I am jealous. That restaurant almost closed down. “Unstoppable…” “Force”. – I got a lot better. / – “The irony…” “Of fate”. You got a lot better at idioms. – “Deep in…” / – “The funeral”. It’s “The mountains”. “Deep in the mountains”. – “Mountains”. / – Because Jongmin has this image, a lot of people try to scam him. – It’s a funny question. / – Seriously. It’s a funny question. – It’s a funny question. / – Seriously. – Those people are too much. / – Seriously. They think he is a fool. Jongmin isn’t like that in real life. He is only like that on TV. – Right. / – How do they try to scam you? There is a variety. This happened recently. – Tell us about it. / – Voice salute. It’s “Phishing”, not “Salute”. “Voice salute”? – Salute! / – Salute! – Salute! / – Salute! (Laughing) – “Voice salute”! / – Stop it. – It’s so funny. / – He laughs so hard because he is smart. – Seriously. / – It’s funny! Don’t make fun of us. We will get offended. Stop making fun of them. – Voice phishing. / – I am sorry. We could take group action. – I apologize as the representative. / – I apologize. – I apologize. / – I accept your apology. I didn’t know it was voice phishing. Suddenly… May I use real names? – Yes. / – I got a message from Gookju. – That happened to me too. / – I know what it is. – I know what it is. / – It was in the newspaper too. Yes. A scammer pretended to be Gookju and sent you a message. I received a message from her. She asked me, “Jongmin,” “are you busy?” “No.” “I have something to say.” “Do you want me to star in ‘Comedy Big League’?” When I asked her that, she said, “No.” “Then what is it?” Then she asked me to lend her 5,000 dollars. (Lend me 5,000 dollars.) I was so taken aback that I asked, “Are you really Gookju?” “Yes. I am in a meeting right now.” They always say that. It’s their tactic. I said, “I am outside right now,” “so I will call you once I go home.” She said it’s meaningless unless I do it now. There is no way Gookju would say that. There is no way Gookju would say that. “I don’t think you are Gookju.” Then some time passed. The profile photo changed to that of an overseas user. An overseas user. What does that mean? – It was from abroad. / – It was from abroad. – I see. / – Then a globe icon shows up. It occurred to me that this scammer approached me purposefully. – An overseas user… / – It occurred to me too. “Saeho, it’s me, Gookju. How are you doing?” I hadn’t talked to her in a while. “It has been a while. How have you been?” “I’m in a hurry. Would you lend me 5,000 dollars?” I had no money, so I said, “I don’t have 5,000 dollars.” She asked, “How much do you have?” I am serious. She asked, “How much do you have?” “Hold on.” “I have 880 dollars.” Then she asked for 500 dollars. I told her that I don’t have my security card with me and that I couldn’t do it at the moment. (She continued to ask him.) “That can’t be helped.” “Can you send me the money at night?” That seemed a bit strange. – That’s right. / – At night. – You need to be careful. / – That’s scary. Seriously. Sungho, you have legendary catchphrases too. I don’t have a lot of catchphrases. – I only have a few. / – Let’s hear them. Okay. When I played Bbacoo, – my catchphrase was “Don’t do it!” / – I remember it. There was a song too. ♪ Don’t say I am cowardly ♪ Don’t do it! (Hello, Bbacoo.) (Don’t do it!) (One sentence was enough to make him look like a fool.) Then I played Yuciano Bbabacrotti in “Bongsunga School”. – That’s right. / – “Get up.” – “Get up.” / – “Get up.” ♪ Get up. Get up. ♪ ♪ Get up. Get up. ♪ (Get up right now, okay?) This catchphrase woke up every late riser around the nation. People used it as an alarm sound. This catchphrase made me – very proud one time. / – What is it? When I played Yuciano Bbabacrotti, I visited a radio program as a guest. One listener sent a story. Her child is in elementary school. He was on the subway one day when he saw a man pretending to be asleep on a priority seat even though an old woman was in front of him. Her child went up to that man and said, ♪ Get up! Get up! Get up! ♪ (Mister, get up.) The guests of the day are the No Brains of Korea, but they have unexpected talents. Junha showed us on “It’s on Treasurer Jung” that he can calculate numbers very quickly. It wasn’t a special at first. – No, it wasn’t. / – It was a different episode. The members were teasing me at a convenience store. They got all the items they wanted – and said, “Junha will pay.” / – Right. They asked me to guess the total and I got the total – down to the cent. / – That’s right. The production crew was surprised and made a new special. The spirit of variety shows was with me that day. Since I have run businesses for many years, – I developed a knack / – That’s right. for figuring out the total. That’s right. Junha is very quick when it comes to mathematics. – Really? / – He doesn’t take losses. (He doesn’t take losses.) – Because… / – What are you talking about? – He is quick. / – Where is this story going? When we were on “No Brain Survivor” together, we had meetings all week long. I paid for tteokbokki and such. “Chunsik, do you have change?” “I don’t carry change.” So I would pay 10 or 12 dollars at a time. At the end of the week, Junha would go, “You worked hard this week.” Then he would buy me dinner that costs just as much as what I paid over the week. (He paid just as much as Chunsik did.) He never takes losses. – The two stories connect. / – It’s incredible. Is he here to get me? What is up with you? Why did you visit the show? (He has the brains for telling stories.) Jongmin, you weren’t acknowledged back in school, but you got acknowledged by Producer Na Youngseok. He loves Jongmin. Producer Na Youngseok praised you recently. Did you read the article? The article? Oh, yes. What was it? Are you waking up from a nap? Don’t you understand the question? Are you pretending not to understand? Producer Na had an interview. He said, “In a dangerous situation,” “I will follow Jongmin.” Did he say that because you are smart? Something happened during your civil service. For my civil service, I worked at the courthouse. During a trial, a blackout occurred. – A blackout. / – There are no windows there. Once the light goes out, it’s completely dark. (It became completely dark inside the courthouse.) You never know what will happen inside the courthouse. Before anyone, I took the judge to the door across the room. – My goodness. / – You used your senses. They had to avoid possible dangers. – You know, / – You created an exit. I could picture the entire room. You could picture the situation. Yes. I ran and reached my destination. Did Producer Na hear about that story? I don’t know. In any case, I have good survival instincts. I get scared easily. Jongmin has excellent survival instincts. Jongmin, you always have a smile on your face. I have never seen you angry, but I heard that you used to have a temper. I heard that you hit a wall after a fight with Shinji. – I lost my temper easily in my 20s. / – Really? I don’t know why. I never let it bother other people. I mostly got angry at myself. You were the type – to get angry at yourself. / – I hit the wall, shouted, and ran around. I was like that in my 20s. When I began to receive love from the public, I changed because I didn’t want to mess up. You didn’t change because you wanted to. You did it for popularity. I didn’t want people to be disappointed in me. – Right. / – Because of expectations. There are times you can’t contain your anger – and annoyance. / – That’s right. When I lost weight back in the days, – I was very irritable. / – That’s right. I couldn’t contain my anger. Why did you diet so hard? Didn’t you get scolded? You know, I had to say a few words to him. “Are you here to work or to lose weight?” He looked like an old man. “For whom are you losing weight?” It was my plan but Jaeseok expressed displeasure – whenever he saw me. / – He scolded you. To have a shoot, you need enough stamina to focus. – That’s right. / – Did he collapse? He had to eat some food. Since he cut down on water too, his lips got stuck to each other. He didn’t talk at all. His lips were sealed. Every time he opened his mouth, I could hear a sound. His eyes were unfocused. That kind of dieting was meaningless. He told me something that happened at a market. That’s right. I was at a market when I had an experience – I had never had before. / – He collapsed. Thankfully, I collapsed in front of a nut store. I ate some nuts. My goodness. I collapsed in front of a nut store. I said, “Ma’am, please give me six almonds.” Six almonds! I ate almonds every day. Nuts saved you. – “Six almonds”. / – You could eat almonds. “Thank you.” That woke me up. My mom really wanted to go to PSY’s concert, so I asked PSY for a favor – and went with her. / – That’s right. PSY suddenly said, “Scream for seven seconds!” I was so excited that I screamed. “Scream for seven seconds!” (Screaming) (Junha fainted.) I am serious. (He fainted in the end.) I fainted. My ears rang. Who goes on a diet like that? My mom was like, “What is going on?” There was a ruckus. Who goes on a diet like that and ruins his body? – To lose weight quickly. / – So why? No one asked him to do it. It was January. We were supposed to fly out on January 8. On January 4, Producer Kim Taeho called us in – for an emergency meeting. / – I remember this. – He said, / – That’s right. “We didn’t get any offers.” “Since Junha worked hard to lose weight,” “we could still go if Junha wants to go.” – I couldn’t possibly do that. / – In cartoons, a character’s eyes well up with tears, right? He was disappointed. You didn’t end up going. I couldn’t make the team go because of me. – You were looking forward to it. / – I couldn’t do it. I was at the end of an extreme diet. I was using all of my strength. – That’s right. / – January 1 to 3 was protein day. I ate 60 eggs without the yolks. I ate 20 eggs per day. I ate eggs for all three meals. From January 4 to 6 was carbohydrates day. I ate sweet potatoes as much as I wanted without water. – What? / – I had to do that. When I couldn’t drink water, tears welled up in my eyes. You were about to collapse. I had eaten sweet potatoes. – When I went home… / – His head moved like this. That’s right. (His head shook without words.) Maybe his head was too heavy. – He does that when he is disappointed. / – Right. Your nose and forehead turned sweaty. It’s hot in here. (He is following a healthy diet now.) “It’s hot in here.” Chunsik, you met your wife when you were doing “No Brain Survivor” with Junha. A lot of people came to our events. After an event in Busan, Junha said he will sleep some more and return to Seoul after he has some blowfish soup. He told me to go ahead, so I flew back to Seoul alone. I saw a beautiful flight attendant on the plane. Did you meet your wife on the plane? You seem like a player if you make a move on the flight attendants on the plane. – It’s her workplace, after all. / – That’s right. – They never give their numbers. / – That’s right. – It’s work regulation. / – Yes. – That’s not the way to do it. / – I said, “Have a good day.” – Through my sunglasses, / – The name tag. I looked at her name tag to get her name. Then I went home and looked up her name – on Cyworld / – My goodness. who was born from 1980 to 1985. – I guessed her age. / – You made a lot of effort. Son Yuri who was born from 1980 to 1985. “Her name was Son Yuri.” I searched every year, – but I couldn’t find her. / – That’s unbelievable. “I really like her. I really want to contact her.” “I can’t give up.” “I think I got ‘Son’ and ‘Yu’ right.” “Maybe the last syllable was ‘Ra’.” I searched again. – You misread her name. / – Son Yura born in 1980, 1982, 1983… She was born in 1983! (The persistent brainiac) – Goodness. / – I searched for all the names. – Eureka. / – I sent her a note online. “Hello, I’m comedian Moon Chunsik. I was on the plane” “from Busan to Seoul today.” “If it’s not too much, I’d like a chance to meet you.” So did she send you a reply?
