Happy Together – Yano Shiho Special (2015.11.26)On December 23, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
Happy to be together on “Happy Together”! “Happy Together”! Hello everyone! – Hello. / – Hello. It’s great to see you again. We survived – yet another week. / – It’s only natural. Our ratings soared last week. – It really soared. / – That’s something you should say when the viewers say that we’ve improved. – You talk too much. / – The ratings went up. I see two new faces. Today we have Bien Jeongmin and Sayuri. – Hello. / – Hello. It’s a change. We see Sayuri on other shows, so she’s a familiar to us – but Jeongmin isn’t. / – I’m surprised. I’m here because a good friend – is supposed to join us today. / – Is that so? – You’re here for your friend? / – Yes. – To make her shine. / – Jeongmin’s here for a friend, but I heard Sayuri’s here to show off her talents. I can speak Japanese better than most people think, so I’m here as the interpreter. – Are you? / – Yes, I am. She came on one of my other shows to interpret for us. After she interpreted, the Japanese person said, “I didn’t say anything like that.” That’s terrible. I should be careful. So we’re wearing earpieces today. Yes, we are. We aren’t listening to the radio but listening to the interpreter. The first time we tried this was when Jackie Chan was here. This is the second time we’re doing this. Let’s welcome our very special guest. She captivated Korea and is a celebrity every woman wants to be like. – She is. / – Choo Sunghoon’s wife and Choo Sarang’s mother, let’s welcome top model, Yano Shiho. – Welcome. / – Welcome. (Even) (The great fighter, Choo Sunghoon) (Is shy around her) (A lovely wife) (The lovely, little Sarang’s) (Gentle mother) (Japan’s top model) – Hello. / – She’s so pretty. It’s great to see you. Shiho… Shiho? It’s all good, but… (The top model’s walk) Wow. Your walk was… She had planned out what she wanted to do so when I held out my hand she thought, “I can’t do both.” She did what she wanted. It’s great to meet you, Shiho. Hello, it’s nice to meet you. I’m Shiho. – Hello. / – Welcome. – Please be nice to me. / – Yano Shiho! Yano Shiho, good evening. – “Good evening”? / – He only knows three phrases. Yano Shiho, good evening, you’re cute. Welcome. Welcome. – It’s fascinating. / – It is. I was so pleased to see her today because she’s a top star in Japan. If you sell her autograph online, you can get 300 dollars for it. – What, 300 dollars? / – Really? – Later on… / – Get one. He wants her autograph. Okay, maybe later. She’s a real celebrity. Do you know about our show, “Happy Together”? (I watched it last week) (I know you all) – Really? / – Yes. So you watched our show. It couldn’t have been easy to decide to come on as a guest. What was the biggest reason? (I wanted to meet you all) Really? (Which of them is the ugliest?) How does she know us? We barely said hello, but she wants to know who’s ugly. So soon? – Sayuri asked her who’s ugly. / – It was too soon to ask who she thought was ugly. It’s Cho Saeho. What? He’s the ugliest here. Your face… You have the least… – Because… / – Because? You’re a comedian. (So I thought he’d forgive me for picking him) I know that Shiho is a top star, but I don’t know how big she is. – I’d like to know as well. / – How famous are you? She’s a model and I saw her in a lot of commercials. Both men and women like her. Men want to date someone like her and women want to be like her. Women want to be like her and men want her as a girlfriend. Oh really? I saw her in a coffee commercial and she was so beautiful. A coffee commercial? (You remember that?) I watched it. My brother liked her for three years. For three years? Why did you say that? – For just three years? / – For three years only? “Just three years”? – He moved on after three years? / – She got married. At the time, she was the Jun Jihyun of Japan. That’s right. – Really? / – Or Shin Mina. (Japan’s Shin Mina) – Now I get it. / – Yes. How popular is she now? She is the cover model of many magazines recently. (Cover and commercial model) Even now, she earns so much of this. Don’t do that. – You can’t do that. / – Not to Yano Shiho. (Global standard body language) Do you earn a lot of money? Oh, money. (You earn much more) – He might. / – All five of them. (Who makes the most money out of the five here?) Don’t you think we’re sitting in the exact order? – We’re seated in that order. / – Yes we are. Don’t you want to know about Choo Sunghoon? – We do. / – How popular is he in Japan? How big is he? (How famous is he?) (A third of his fame is in Korea?) She gave us an exact number. Shiho gave us the exact number for us to understand better. (His characters are totally different) (Koreans see him with his daughter,) (So they think he’s a good father) (The Japanese think he’s funny) He’s like a comedian? He’s just this really macho guy. He’s not the funny type here in Korea. (He appears on TV,) (Flexing his pecs and making them move) (“Should I or should I not?”) (That’s what he says while moving his muscles) (That’s the kind of man he is) (It’s so different) So in Japan, he’s like the actor Kim Bosung. – “Be loyal.” / – That’s right. He does that, too. In Korea, male celebrities are too scared to approach Sunghoon. We can’t even look him in the eye. – Why? / – We’re scared. He’s scary. Really? – Is it like that in Japan? / – No, no. He’s not scary at all. – He’s not scary? / – No. He must be similar to Kim Bosung. – He’s just the same. / – “Be loyal.” Also from what we heard, Shiho is so famous and popular in Japan that the locals were shocked that she let the filming crew enter her house. That’s true. Japanese celebrities do not – open up their homes. / – So I heard. They don’t show their family, especially their children on TV. They never show their children’s faces. If paparazzi take a photo of their children, they blur out the faces. There are no shows like “The Return of Superman”? It’s beyond our wildest dreams. (No Japanese shows about celebrities’ children) So, like how Sayuri just explained to us, it’s unusual to appear on TV as a family in Japan. Were there any comments or concerns regarding Sarang? (I thought and hesitated a lot) (But I thought it would be fine) (Because we don’t live in Korea) (I believed it wouldn’t disrupt our lives) (Also, inside Sarang) (Flows both Korean and Japanese blood,) (So I thought she should learn Korean) I see. Could you tell us how you got to know Jeongmin? We are the same age. – The same age. / – We’re friends. – Our children, too. / – They’re the same age. – I see. / – Sarang and… – My second child. / – They are the same age and they have a child who is the same age. My older sister – knows Sunghoon’s manager well. / – Okay. So she invited Sunghoon’s family over to her house. The biggest reason we became friends was because Sarang got along so well with my younger child. So we organized play dates and such. How do you two communicate? I speak a little Japanese and Shiho’s learning Korean. We mix in a little English as well. Shiho’s very charismatic when she speaks Japanese, but she becomes nervous when she speaks Korean. So her tone goes up. – Many comedy shows imitated her. / – A lot. The best one I heard so far was “So impressive.” That’s right. – “So impressive.” / – “So impressive.” Sarang, so impressive! Sarang, so impressive. So impressive. Okay! (Sarang would answer) Shiho’s “So impressive” was a hit. Can you show us your version? Sarang, so impressive. – It’s the original version. / – It is. Is it the same in Japanese? Do you say “sugoi”? Can you say “ogenki desu ka” for us? (Sarang, so impressive!) She sounds the same. Her voice is naturally high-pitched. It must run in her family. – It’s in the DNA. / – Oh, DNA, DNA. Is your mother’s voice high-pitched, too? (My mother’s voice is high-pitched) (My grandmother’s voice is also high-pitched) (Laughing out loud) It’s in the DNA, yes. The photo that Yano Shiho took with her close Korean friends created a buzz recently. Look at this. They’re having so much fun. – My goodness. / – That’s Bien Jeongsoo. – Who is this person? / – Who is she? – Yano Shiho. / – This is Yano Shiho? I thought it was the comedian, Kim Joonho. Because of her facial expressions… This is a little… Did Uhm Taewoong go to the swimming pool with you? Yes, he came with us. He came with us, but since all of us are in great shape… – There must’ve been a competition. / – That’s right. The women weren’t competitive. – But the men were? / – They were? Sunghoon and all of our husbands also came. – I see. / – That’s awesome! They can’t compete with him. – Do you know what happened? / – He has a great body. When Sunghoon took his clothes off, all the other men went into the swimming pool. They went in immediately? Yes, immediately. We could only see their heads. They were pretending to be playing with the kids. We thought “The men are very self-conscious right now.” All the moms knew. But Sunghoon was too harsh. – Seriously. / – He must’ve known why the others… He didn’t have to take his shirt off. I think he probably knew that people were watching him. (He has a great body and wants to show it off) (Showing off) That’s… That’s exactly what we wanted to hear. He wanted to take his shirt off. – He didn’t need to take it off. / – That’s right. She makes it so easy for us to lead the conversation. (Before going to the pool,) (He went to the gym to pump up) Was he not satisfied with his body? As if he thought he needed more muscles, he went to the gym before going to the pool. (Everyone was at the swimming pool,) (But he went to the gym by himself) (Then he came back and took his shirt off) (Showing off) Jeongmin, did you think his body looked good? – What did you think? / – Of course it looked good. How would you compare your husband’s body with his? Honey, I’m sorry. – You couldn’t help it. / – I couldn’t. His torso was shaped like an inverted triangle and when there are other men standing beside him, you can’t help but compare. That’s right. Shiho, you must be happy that you live with such a hot man. I like his body. – “I like his body.” / – “I like his body.” – His body is almost perfect. / – He looks so good. Korean moms become close when they meet up to badmouth their husbands or talk about their mothers-in-law. Yano Shiho, you don’t do those things, do you? – Shiho, your mother-in-law… / – Badmouthing Sunghoon (When I’m with the moms from “The Return of Superman”,) (We talk a lot about our husbands) (You badmouth them too, don’t you?) (It’s not really badmouthing. It’s the truth) – That’s true. / – She’s funny. It’s not really badmouthing. They’re telling the truth. I actually never thought about it like that. When you were modeling in the past, you worked with many Korean top stars, right? I have a photo here. Really? I see So Jisub and Song Seungheon. Wow, this is Yano Shiho. – She’s cute. / – She’s so cute. – You look so cute. / – So cute. – Thank you. / – How old were you? – She was 19 years old. / – Wow. – She was a young girl. / – She looks like a baby. I know, seriously. So Jisub and Song Seungheon. Do you remember them? (I don’t remember) (I remember the photo shoot though) (I remember hearing that they were famous) (But I don’t remember their names) – They weren’t famous back then. / – That’s right. That was when they first started modeling. What’s this gesture? What does it mean? “I have regrets.” I see. As we mentioned earlier, Yano Shiho is very popular in Korea. She’s the muse of women in their 30s and 40s. – That’s right. / – Everything she wears sells out. Whether it’s her purse or clothes, everything gets sold out. Shiho, you must know about it, too. I’d like to know why she thinks women love her style so much. Why do you think that is, Jeongmin and Sayuri? In my opinion, it’s because not only is she charismatic but she’s also very cute. She definitely has charisma. When I observe her doing things and speaking Japanese, I think she’s very charismatic. But when she’s with Sarang, she’s gentle and sweet. – I think that’s why. / – I see, that’s the reason. There are many aspects about her that women love. The way she looks at us is so adorable. We’d like to know what Yano Shiho thinks. Please tell us if you think you’re charismatic or cute. (It depends on the person) (I act differently depending on the person) What about when you meet Korean stars like us? Korean stars? Please tell us. When you meet – Korean stars like us… / – How do you talk about these things without feeling embarrassed? Of course, we’re stars as well. There’s no need to interpret this. – She already stopped. / – Please don’t interpret this. – Yes. / – She already stopped interpreting. Please don’t interpret it. Why aren’t you interpreting? (Which side of me do you want to see first?) – Both. / – Show us both. – We’ll see your sexy side first. / – Your sexy side. Sexy, sexy. Oh! Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. (Flaunting her sexiness) (Did you say “sexy”?) – Wow, Yano Shiho… / – I’m impressed. That was amazing. She was like a chameleon. (She’s a woman of many charms) – Seriously. / – You’re amazing. – Not everyone can be sexy. / – That’s right. The female panels showed their sexy poses, so could the male panels – do the same for us? / – Oh, the sexy poses. Poong, you go first. – You’re famous, Poong. / – You know what. Instead of pretending, let’s actually try to act sexy. – Show us what you have. / – Seriously. Let’s take turns. Poong, you go first. (The first player, Kim Poong) – That looks good. / – Poong… – That was good. / – You did well. Next, Saeho, show us your sexy pose. I’m curious to see what he will do. (Are you cold?) (Laughing out loud) Hyunmoo, you’re next. – I can’t even look at him. / – I got goose bumps. I don’t want to look at him. You’re next, Myungsoo. Sexy? (He splits his legs) Your legs are so short. His legs are short. – Now it’s our main host. / – The main host. (He removes his glasses for his sexy pose) (A grasshopper without his glasses) Gosh, seriously. You’re embarrassing all the Korean people. – No… / – He looks like those minnow fish. (Mr. Ugly) Could I ask you who you think is the ugliest among us five? Who is the ugliest in your opinion? (You) Congratulations, Hyunmoo. (Jun Hyunmoo is the winner) Goodness, you are just… Yano Shiho is the wife of my close friend. Sunghoon is… – He’s a lucky guy. / – Yes, he’s really lucky. Please tell her that we think Sunghoon is a lucky man. – Seriously. / – He’s really lucky. All right. In this segment, we will try to guess Shiho’s personal taste. The hosts have prepared some objects that are tailored to her taste. Each of us will go to our rooms with Yano Shiho – and figure out her taste. / – Okay. – Shall we begin? / – Yes. Let’s go. (At one corner of the studio) (There’s an abandoned set that looks dark and spooky) (At this place, where no one used to visit) This one? This one? (An angel enters the cursed room) (Like a ray of light) (Looking around) (This set looks) (Ugly) Hyunmoo and Myungsoo. Myungsoo and Hyunmoo. We have to draw a moustache on him. Myungsoo, you look so unhealthy. (He looks like he’s about to) (Celebrate his 70th birthday) Just wear it like this. I want to look like Bae Yongjoon. This isn’t that important. – Like this. / – Don’t I look like a refugee? Just wear it like this. (Shiho, who are you waiting for now?) Hyunsoo and Myungmoo. (We’re sorry. We’ll be there soon) I’m waiting. I’m waiting. (The first contestant) (Honey?) (Entering the room with a sweet, gentle voice is) (An ill-looking old man) (Are you Myungsoo’s father?) I love you. I’m Sarang’s dad, Sarang’s dad. ‘You already know’ (No, my husband is more…) Honey, turn off the lights. Honey. (His fearless comment) You’re a grandfather. How could you call me a grandfather? That’s too harsh. I’m sorry. Don’t I look the same? (No one could tell who he was trying to mimic) (But I…) (Someone else enters the room right away) (The second contestant) (He’s just a fan of Choo Sunghoon) (As an avid fan, he even brought a photo) Sarang. My Sarang. My Sarang. (Excuse me) I’m Sarang’s dad. I’m Sarang’s dad. – I look more like him. / – Look at me. Excuse me, I’m Sarang’s dad. Who looks more like Sunghoon? Be honest. (Certainly…) You look like him. You both look like him. But you should be a little sexier… (You guys are not sexy enough) (You guys are not sexy enough) We’re not sexy enough? (You need to be sexier) – Sexier? / – Yes. I’m Sarang’s father. I’m Sarang’s father. ‘There’s hair on my chest’ I’m sexy. I showed it to her since I don’t have hair on my chest. ‘There’s hair on my chest’ I choose Myungsoo. – She chose me. / – I choose Myungsoo. (Sunghoon doesn’t have hair on his chest) (Good job) Your husband dresses really well. – Yes. / – Do you pick his outfits? Or does he pick his own outfits? (He picks his own outfits and styles himself) All of us are aware that he’s a fashionista. But his style is quite unique. Out of these four styles, which is your favorite? (I like it when he wears a suit) – This one? / – The suit. But the color is a little odd. The wives don’t allow their husbands to dress like this in Korea. If they dress like this, they’ll get divorced. The wives will divorce them. (Well, I think it’s okay because it suits him) So you like the suit style rather than the color. I just like his body. – His body? / – I like his body. – His body? / – So you like his body. – So it’s all about the body. / – Of course. Sunghoon has a really nice body right now. But his body won’t be as nice when he gets older. Will you still love him then? I keep stuttering because of this earpiece in my ear. The words don’t come out as naturally because of it. It’s not easy to listen and speak at the same time. (My husband likes break dancing and hip hop styles) (He likes to dress young) (Sometimes he wears a cap like this) (He’s in his 40s right now,) (But he dresses as if he’s in his 20s) (It’s kind of embarrassing) – You don’t like hip hop? / – I don’t. (I don’t know why he likes to dress like a youngster) Maybe he’s trying to be popular among the young ladies? (That’s exactly right!) (When he stands next to a young woman) (And I see that their styles match,) (I’m like, “What are they doing?”) Don’t you get jealous when young girls like him? – Be honest. / – Be honest. – How do you feel? / – Since he has a lot of lady fans. Please be honest. (Honestly, when he goes out to drink) (And comes home in the morning) (Did he stay out overnight?) – Oh. / – Amazing. (We got one) – Yes. / – Yes. (I ask him, “Do you know what time it is right now?”) (So I remind him that he needs to be home by 4 a.m.) (I tell him that he needs to come home by 4 a.m.) So he just has to come home before four? – Yes. / – Really? In Korea, if you go home at 4 a.m., your wife will scream at you. (Why?) Going home at 4 a.m. is too late. How is 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. any different? (Really? Isn’t it a hassle to come home by four?) It’d be better to stay out and come home the next day. It will be too tiring. No. No. (Coming home at 6 a.m. is too late) (But 4 a.m. is okay) What’s the difference? Why is it 4 a.m. in particular? In Korea, you just need to get home before the newspaper arrives. Maybe newspapers get delivered late in Japan. Don’t they arrive around 4 a.m. as well? (When you eat and hang out, it becomes 4 a.m.) – What if he comes home later? / – What will you do? Are you going to scream like this? (Like a Japanese cat?) One, two, three. (Punish him severely!) One, two, three. (Like this?) (I don’t scratch him with my nails or anything) (I just nag and say, “Do you know what time it is?”) What does your husband say? What does he say when you nag? (He just goes to sleep) Korean guys just pretend to be asleep. They’re just pretending. In Korea, the wives argue with their husbands if they come home late. How do you express your anger? I’m curious. (What time do you think it is?) (Smack!) – So you yell at him. / – Do you throw things at him? (I don’t throw things. I just close the door loudly) (What will he say?) You just close the door? That’s why he keeps coming home at 4 a.m. – You need to be harsher. / – It’s your fault. – It’s your fault. / – It’s your fault. (It’s not like that) (In Japan,) (We have a saying similar to “An eye for an eye”) – Oh? / – Oh? (Staring) (So if he comes home around 6 a.m.,) (I go out the next day and come home in the morning) (An eye for an eye) What do you do until the morning? (I stay at my friend’s place) And do what? You don’t go clubbing? (I just chat with my friend) (And I don’t tell Sunghoon where I have been) He will be upset. (He has to know what it feels like to wait) (But we both come home early these days) (It’s all in the past) She’s wise. I’m curious about something. You said you look at the body first. Imagine a guy with Myungsoo’s face and Sunghoon’s body. And imagine another guy with Kimura Takuya’s face and my body. Who would you date? (A bizarre competition) (In the end, it’s Hyunmoo versus Myungsoo) (I’ll choose the one with the nice body) (The man with Myungsoo’s face and Sunghoon’s body wins) Even with Myungsoo’s face? You’d date him as long as he has a good body? (Myungsoo’s face has a unique charm to it) (I like someone with a charming face,) (Rather than a handsome face) Thank you. Does he look like he’s going to ward off evil? Why do you think his face is special? (I don’t know. That is the question) (I think his face makes me want to protect him) You want to protect him. You feel bad for him. Please tell her people say I look like Kimura Takuya. – Really? / – Kimura Takuya. (I actually met Kimura Takuya before) (You are a little rounder) I’m on a diet right now. Everyone in Korea and Japan knows that Sunghoon has a nice body. He’s the best. I heard this from somewhere. I heard he doesn’t wear underwear. How come he doesn’t wear underwear? – Why no underwear? / – Your English is improving. (I want to ask too!) He never wears it? Yes. Yes. Never. (He never wears it) What’s the reason? (He told me that he feels free and likes the feeling) He feels free without underwear? As his wife, did you ever tell him to wear underwear? It could be embarrassing when he wears white pants. Why don’t you tell him to wear it? You should make him wear underwear since you’re his wife. (But even I don’t wear underwear when I go to bed) (But even I don’t wear underwear when I go to bed) (Goodness) (I don’t wear underwear to sleep) No panties? (Hey!) (He used to be a news anchor) (But it actually makes you feel free) (It’s comfortable) – That’s a bit too much. / – I understand how he feels. But seriously, have you ever told him to wear it when he goes outside? (No. It doesn’t bother me much) (But there is just one thing that slightly bothers me) (I don’t know if it’s okay for me to say this on TV) (We’re scared) (There are times when) (His pants are wet after he uses the bathroom) That’s a little inappropriate for TV. (So it’s…) That’s because it’s humid in Japan. – It has to do with the weather. / – So hot and humid. Tell her it’s the hot and humid weather that causes it. Tokyo is very hot and humid. Warm current passes by it. (When that happens, I tell him how unacceptable it is) (I am sorry) It could be water. Maybe the water splashed while washing his hands. Or it could be water from a bidet. You have flawless skin. Do you spend a lot of money on skin care? (I really don’t do anything) You can’t lie. (But I think that it’s much more important) (Of your inside than your outside) (So having a well-balanced life is very important) So instead of getting special skin care, you stick to your daily beauty routines. But I’m sure many women are curious to how you’re able to maintain flawless skin when you don’t get skin care. Can you reveal your beauty secrets? (It’s important to sleep a lot and wake up early) (And) (Eat healthy) Something doesn’t add up. Her husband comes home at 4 a.m. but how does she sleep well? How is she able to eat healthy? Are you trying to make yourself look good? Your story just doesn’t add up. – Is it for your reputation? / – How can you sleep well when your husband comes home at four in the morning? You need to be awake to check if he comes home at four. (My husband comes back home at 4 a.m.) (By then, I’m sound asleep) Then how do you know he comes at 4 a.m., when you’re sleeping? (It gets on my mind when he goes out with his friends,) (So I get jumpy) (Feeling uneasy) I’m like, “He’s not back yet?” See? That means you don’t sleep well. – That’s insomnia. / – You’re not making any sense. You’ll end up with acne. (But that doesn’t happen all the time) – I see. / – It’s every now and then. (I’m serious) (Honey, we need to talk) When I saw what Yano Shiho was wearing today, I thought she looked very… (Moderate yet stylish) – She didn’t look too flashy… / – You’re right. yet very stylish. – She looked very young yet sexy. / – Yes. – She has that young look. / – Thank you. Not a lot of people wear this style in Korea. Nobody wore like this since Kang Susie. It was popular 16 years ago. Not many people wear sleeveless shirts these days. Please tell her to wear something trendier next time. What’s the concept with your clothes today? (The concept is to look clean) – Look clean? / – Is that right? – She wanted to be clean. / – She’s at the wrong show. (Should I have worn something sexy?) No, you look sexy right now. – You’re sexy and… / – Let me show you what sexy is. Please don’t. No, don’t do that. (No, you can’t. Your husband is Choo Sunghoon) (Finishing the interview with a photo shoot) (Something must be in his eye) Oh my. (Sunghoon, I didn’t do anything) We’re here with Yano Shiho. We have prepared some Korean food she likes and we’re going to guess her taste with those foods. Sarang and everyone else in your family – eat food very deliciously. / – You’re right. (The cutest baby who eats very deliciously) (Sarang eats everything deliciously) (Shiho is also a Korean food lover) (Her family eats everything) (So deliciously) Shiho, are you a good cook? What do you cook normally? (Sunghoon likes chicken) I see. (He likes chicken, so…) (I often cook chicken dishes for him) He likes dishes made with chicken. I don’t want to be rude, but you don’t cook well? – Get out. / – Me? What are you saying? Are you trying to dishonor Yano Shiho? – What are you trying to say? / – I don’t think she’s good at cooking on the show, “The Return of Superman”. – I don’t think she’s… / – She cooks… – She doesn’t look like a good cook. / – Honestly, it doesn’t look as if you are a good cook on that show. – Really? / – Yes. – Am I wrong? / – Maybe the video is edited. Before I got married… – Married? / – Before you got married? Before I got married, I made many different dishes. What about now? – Now, my mother-in-law… / – Cooks everything, right? (It’s been a while since I cooked,) (But my dishes are delicious!) Really? (I’m a confident cook!) Really? Does Sunghoon cook well, too? – Yes. / – Is he any good? (He never cooks at home,) (But he cooks at least once in a year) – What’s the occasion? / – Which day? (He just picks a random day and cooks) – That means he doesn’t cook much. / – Yes. – But I saw him cooking… / – He never cooks. omelet rice for Sarang. He even made the shape perfectly. – It looked like he’s a good cook. / – Yes, he was. He cooks for Sarang, but he doesn’t cook at home? – He doesn’t. / – I see. It’s probably because he’s surrounded by the cameras. – I thought he always cooked. / – The cameras. Sunghoon must be busy working out. (But he makes his own breakfast) He only makes his breakfast to his appetite then. (Everyone makes breakfast and ramen) (Let’s guess Yano Shiho’s taste) (Excited) – Let’s do this. / – I’m ready. She’ll take a bite of each dish and choose only one between the two. I’m going to guess which one she didn’t pick by looking at her facial expressions. Okay, let’s take a look at our first two dishes. One, two, three. Ta-da. Spicy buckwheat noodles and cold buckwheat noodles. Wow. (Even Japanese people like these two dishes!) It’s hard to decide between spicy and cold buckwheat noodles. Many Koreans have hard time choosing, too. (I enjoy eating both) – That’s great. / – We made a great choice. Saeho and Poong, please explain to Shiho a little bit about these two dishes. The broth in this noodle is made with beef. It’s full of beef broth, so it’s very healthy and its sweet and sour taste will capture your taste buds right away. It’s tour turn. I’m not knowledgeable, but this one is more delicious. This is… – It’s as if I’m cutting hair. / – Many Japanese people say “Mhmm” when they eat something very delicious. – Really? / – Am I right? – Don’t they say “Mhmm”? / – Okay. Can’t you hear me talking to you? Do Japanese people really say “Mhmm” when they eat something delicious? – Like “Wow”? / – Or “Mhmm”. Mhmm, it’s yummy. Wow, it’s very delicious. That’s right. – Is that what you meant? / – Yes. (She returns to her stylish self to taste) (A bite of the cold noodles) (Mhmm! It’s delicious!) This is it. She said it so quickly as soon as she took a bite. – Is it delicious? / – That’s what we were looking for. – This is it. / – That’s how they do it. – This is good, too. Try it. / – Try it. (Is this spicy?) – It’s not that spicy. / – You’ll be fine. – Wow. / – She said “Wow”. – This is her real reaction. / – I think so, too. – Her reaction was real. / – That was the right one. All right then. You tasted each dish. Let me take the first guess. (Jaeseok takes the first guess) – Cold buckwheat noodles. / – It’s so obvious. Spicy buckwheat noodles were probably delicious, too. But from the way she reacted, I felt she liked cold noodles better. I’d like to confidently say it’s spicy buckwheat noodles. Her reaction seemed unrealistic after the cold noodles. – Who? / – Yano Shiho. My goodness. I’m sorry. – Don’t speak carelessly. / – I’m so sorry. – I’m friends with Sunghoon. / – I’m sorry. All right, Shiho. One, two, three. (She picks spicy buckwheat noodles) Really? (I originally like cold buckwheat noodles better) Yes, exactly. (I do love this and) (It was very delicious when I ate it) (But when I ate this, I smelled strong sesame oil) Yes, it’s used. (It was spicy, but sesame oil added a sweet taste, (Which shocked me) That’s very odd. When I ate with Japanese people, eight out of ten chose spicy noodles. – Really? / – Yes. It’s very delicious. (Jaeseok takes a bite of each) – Pass me the chopsticks. / – You can’t eat it. Why not? (This isn’t a game, Saeho) Come on. This restaurant makes better spicy noodles. Shiho, this particular place makes spicy noodles better. Stop eating. All right, as the penalty, – let’s give him a finger flick. / – A finger flick? Yes, a finger flick. – Will it hurt? / – Use all your strength. It’s fine. She went easy on you. – It should be like this. / – Yes, bend it backwards. Okay. – Oh gosh. / – What was that? I think I bent it too much. – Like the magician Uri Geller. / – Try it again. – Will it be okay? / – It’s fine. (Smack!) (A solid hit) – Oh my. / – Oh my. – Oh my. / – So impressive! – Shiho, it’s fine. / – Really? – Really? / – Yes. – Really? / – Yes, really. (Fire away!) (He shuts his eyes) So impressive! All right, let’s go on to our next two dishes. Here they are. – Jajang tteokbokki and… / – Spicy tteokbokki. This is hard to choose. Jajang tteokbokki and spicy tteokbokki are delicious. What I’d like to say about jajang tteokbokki is… Well, she said she likes jajangmyeon, right? It’s best to eat jajangmyeon then. – It can be delicious, / – Yes. but jajangmyeon tastes better than jajang tteokbokki. – Poong, say something. / – But the thing is, it’s not easy to make a really delicious tteokbokki but jajang tteokbokki will taste delicious no matter what. It’ll always taste above average, so there’s a chance. – Have you tried this before? / – She hasn’t. – She might like it. / – Did you see her face? She scrunched her face as if she was disgusted by it. No, she had a curious look on her face. Have a bite. (She tries jajang tteokbokki first) Don’t say anything yet. Mhmm. See? She likes it. Yes, together. It’s possible to eat them separately. Is it tasty? Her response is slightly delayed. We have her answer. We do. I bet she prefers the jajang tteokbokki. – It’s obvious. / – Is it? Her response was this and then this. – What’s this? / – Her tone went down a bit. That’s because Japanese people don’t react strongly to things they really like. – Really? / – Yes. So depending on what Shiho prefers, one or two of us must endure a penalty. Did she prefer jajang or the spicy tteokbokki? Which one did you prefer? One, two, three. – Spicy tteokbokki. / – Yes! (Saeho won twice in a row) (The image I had of tteokbokki) (Was similar to this) (As soon as I tasted it, I thought, “This is it!”) What did you think of this? (Like he said, I’d rather eat jajangmyeon) See? I won again. – Like we said… / – What’s the penalty? – Just sit still. / – Can I? Look straight ahead. One, two, three. (A solid slap) Two, three. Now it’s your turn. – You got it wrong. / – What? – You got it wrong. / – Oh, I did. You’re right. We should abide by the rules. – My goodness, Saeho. / – Quickly. Don’t waste time. Do excuse me. One, two, three. – Wait. / – One, two, three. (His attitude stings even more) – It’s just a game. / – Of course. It’s a game. (He earns a bonus!) – Hello. / – Hello. I won the chance to learn yoga from you. – Please teach me well. / – Thank you. I’ll do my best. (The secret to Shiho’s slim figure) (Yoga) (Shiho was Rain’s yoga instructor) (Let’s learn a few postures) – In yoga, / – Yes? breathing is – important. / – Breathing? – Breathing’s important. / – Breathe through your nose. Through the nose. Shall we try? Breathe in. And exhale. Breathe out. – Breathe out. / – Breathe out and then in. Exhale and inhale. Now let’s try the first pose. Do we go right in? Inhale, exhale. Inhale, lift your leg. (Lift your leg) Breathe in and breathe out. Breathe in and breathe out. Concentrate. Breathe in and breathe out. Breathe in. Slowly. (Breathe in and lift your arms) Breathe out. Breathe in. Well done. – So impressive. / – So impressive. – So impressive. / – Saeho, so impressive. – So impressive. / – Saeho, so impressive. (This pose improves your balance) I see, my balance… – Your balance… / – Breathe out. Got it. – Now for the last pose. / – The last one. (It’s difficult) (It’s difficult, so try to keep up) This pose will help slim my waist? (I like it) (A yoga pose for Saeho) (A stomach full of fat) I love the pose already. (Lift one leg) Breathe in and breathe out. (Put your arm back and grab your toe) (Impossible) It’s impossible. I can’t do it. Breathe in and breathe out. Breathe in and then slowly lean forward. (Lean forward?) Breathe in and breathe out. Shall I hold my sock? (A sock?) Shall I hold my sock? (He did it!) Okay, okay. Breathe out. (Now all you have to do is lean forward) Breathe in and breathe out. (My body won’t listen) (Yikes) Relax and breathe out. Breathe in and breathe out. (I miss my mom) Well done. – That was so hard. / – Well done. (Clapping for the end of the class) The other side? (And so Saeho’s bonus time ends) We can tell a lot through one’s belongings. Today we will learn more about Shiho through some of her things. The first item is something that started the Yano Shiho fever. What is it? What is it? Where is it? Where is it? – Thank you. / – Wow. They’re so pretty. (Clothes that Shiho designed) (I always have so many clothes,) (So I go organize my closet twice a year) – My present to you. / – To Sayuri. – They’re for us? / – Yes, they’re gifts. They’re gifts. But these look so new. (I made the trousers and the sleeveless shirts) Oh, these? – They’re so pretty. / – They’re lovely. They’re beautiful. (They are from Shiho’s Japanese clothing line) It’s a very good brand. I don’t sell them here. (This is my gift to the viewers) Shiho’s shirts were very popular among women. I love shirts. I really like them. I have so many. Why do you like to wear shirts? (First off, they’re popular to men) (And it’s an item that I think) (Could make women look very elegant) (Don’t you like women who wear shirts?) I like pretty women who wear shirts. That is a plus. – The face is important. / – If she’s pretty. I don’t like a woman just in a shirt. – That’s enough. / – Remember that. Don’t translate everything. Okay. – Okay. / – She understood. Were you well-dressed as a child? Did you always dress up? She looks so pretty. – My goodness. / – She looks like a doll. This was when I was five. You were so pretty. There’s more. Were you in Korea? That place looks familiar. – It’s the valleys. / – It looks familiar. Was this taken in Japan? – Which one is she? / – Her legs were so long. This is her. Look at her legs. She has long legs. (I was around 168 centimeters at the time) – She was already… / – Compared to her friends she… Did you have anything done to your face? Is everything natural? (I had braces. That’s it) Braces only. How did you become a model? (When I was in high school and) (Was wondering about my future,) (My mom asked, “Are you going to go to college?”) (“If not, how about becoming a model?”) She didn’t pressure you about your future. Most parents would ask, “Are you really not going to go to college?” and then urge the child to study. Her mom didn’t, which means she did terribly in school. It’s… It’s possible, but… If she did well, her mom wouldn’t have said that. – But… / – Studying wasn’t an option. – No college. / – She was hopeless. For us, we don’t think college is always necessary. If you have a dream, we think it’s best to pursue that dream. Koreans are slowly beginning to change their minds, but before, studying was always the priority. Studying is the only way to survive. Studying was the only way to improve your status. It was. Okay, so because Shiho works mostly in Japan, we have no idea what she does. She brought us something no one in Japan has seen. We’re the only TV show to air this. – We’re the first in the world. / – What is it? She must love Korea. – That’s thick. What is that? / – This is… – An album. / – An album. These are all you, Shiho? This is the first time anyone has seen this. – I’ve never seen this. / – My photos from when I debuted. This is really something. She’s beautiful now, but she was a goddess. Look at her face. Incredible. It’s really hard to collect every single photo. How was she able to collect all these? – Goodness, look. / – Wow, this one… I love this one. I like this one. (Sexy, sexy) (Do I look sexy?) Are you tired? You look tired. Is it due to jet lag? It’s a thin line between sexy and looking tired. – That’s right. / – This one. It only works on models. If an average person wears a lampshade… It’s for comedy performances like “Gag Concert”. Or a punishment for a game show. – Look at that. / – She’s so pretty. You’re hogging the album. – Sorry. / – The viewers can’t see. Is this your living room? Are you a collector? I didn’t realize I was being selfish. I apologize. Do you collect her photos? This is amazing. Is there a difference between modeling in Korea and Japan? – I’m curious. / – Me too. (The two countries pursue) (Two very different images of women) Really? (Koreans prefer sexy, grown-up, and feminine women) (But in Japan, we prefer young and cute women) (If I do a pose and) (It turns out to be a big hit in Japan,) (For some reason, it has) (A complete opposite effect in Korea) Could you show us an example? (The Korean version looks provocative and seductive) (And I think they like to) (Make sure that their body lines look beautiful) One, two, three. (The Korean model pose) I see, this is the Korean version. – This is how she poses in Korea. / – It’s sexy. – What about in Japan? / – In Japan. (The Japanese version is cute) One, two, three. – She’s pouting her lips. / – I see, like that. – Pouting lips is important. / – Like on SNS… – She pouts with her lips. / – Her mouth is… (The cute mouth shape is crucial) (Oh) (Try to look cute) (Or move your head and shoulder like this) It looks a bit like a sulky face. – Yes, a little bit. / – You’ve all seen it, right? Let’s imagine that we’re in men’s magazines. Hyunmoo. – I’ve been on them a lot. / – Try it then. One, two, three. – Your mouth should look like this. / – That’s good. The mouth is the most important. It’s important. That’s right! She’s saying that it’s good. When I take photos, I intentionally turn like this. – I see, turn to the side a bit. / – It works. When you visit Japan, you always see people at the airport taking photos. One, two, three. (“Happy Together” came to Japan) Can you imitate Sarang’s facial expressions? – Sarang. / – Sarang. (I’m angry) Shiho can also imitate something else. – A bat. / – Yes, a bat. A bat’s face. – I see, a bat’s face. / – How? A bat’s face. – Oh! / – Wow! (A bat that just flew out of a cave) – That’s right. / – It looks identical. – That’s right. / – Wow, it looks the same. – Impressive! / – Amazing! – Yano Shiho, so impressive! / – So impressive! – It looks exactly the same. / – It totally does. Do Japanese TV shows also make you do this? Have you done this in Japan? (This is my first time) They never make you do things like this. – They don’t? / – Never. – They don’t do this in Japan? / – No, they don’t. They just talk with the guests. I’ve seen them slapping on shows. Don’t they imitate voices? Only comedians imitate people’s voices. (Only comedians do these things) – But seriously, she’s amazing. / – Shiho’s impressive, – especially the bat face. / – She’s so nice. (Shiho the model) (Meets the fighter, Sunghoon) (And then they fall in love) (What’s my ideal type of man?) (I’ve always thought that someone who does his best) (In one thing was very attractive) So you felt that way about Choo Sunghoon? (Yes, he has been practicing judo and martial arts) (He has been only focusing on training his body) (And doing his best at it, so I liked that about him) From what I’ve heard, you were thinking about these things and then met Sunghoon within a week? Oh my. (Work wasn’t going well) (And I broke up with my ex-boyfriend) (I was like “Who am I?”) (At that time, I didn’t feel like I knew who I was) So you met Sunghoon to forget about your ex-boyfriend? – No, that’s not what happened. / – Tell us the truth! That’s really not what happened. – It’s what happened! / – No! You started dating Sunghoon to forget about your ex-boyfriend, didn’t you? (That’s not true) People found out about you and Sunghoon through a paparazzi photo. I saw it as well. Oh gosh. I saw this photo. I’m curious to know how people reacted when they found out that you two were dating. They were such an unlikely couple because he’s a fighter and she’s a very beautiful model. It seemed like they didn’t have anything in common. It’s like Shin Mina dating Kim Bosung. (What a perfect example) You were planning on dating secretly, but you got caught by the paparazzi, right? No? (We weren’t trying to keep it a secret) Is that so? But you were so bundled up. Your scarf was covering half of your face. She’s saying it wasn’t a secret, but she had her face covered. It was cold, very cold. Why was he wearing a T-shirt then? – He’s wearing a half-sleeve. / – What Shiho is saying – doesn’t make much sense. / – I agree. – You’re not dressed warmly. / – It’s a T-shirt. (It was February or March,) (But he was dressed like that) Shiho, if you were… If you were cold, don’t you think Sunghoon would’ve felt cold as well? You should’ve given your scarf to him. He’s your boyfriend. You were bundled up. (When this photo was released,) (We admitted that we were dating) (We both admitted it) What really surprised me was the fact that Shiho asked him out first. – Really? / – She asked Sunghoon out. (I saw him on television and thought he was my type) (So I asked my acquaintances to introduce me to him) – I see! / – That’s what happened. (Two years later, a friend of mine) (Introduced me to Sunghoon) What a great friend. (When the friend went to the restroom,) (Sunghoon asked me,) (“What kind of man do you like?”) (So I told him that he was my type) Just like that? Oh really? You’re very direct. When men ask women what their type is, women usually don’t tell them directly like that. – You’re so cool. / – She’s very cool. Don’t you agree? So what was his reply? (I asked him what kind of women he liked,) (And he said that he liked someone like me) – He said it was you! / – A match made in heaven. Yano Shiho and Choo Sunghoon, so impressive! – They’re meant for each other. / – They’re impressive. It’s as if they got struck by Cupid’s arrow. Do you remember your first impression of him? What was your first impression of him? (He was very gentle and sweet) (And I really liked the cologne he was wearing) – Scent is so important. / – How about his clothes? (He was wearing a white T-shirt) (A white T-shirt and a good scent) – She likes T-shirts. / – Bright colored ones. He’s got a great body, so he can – wear anything. / – He can wear jeans and a T-shirt. He was probably doing this. (It’s not like he went on a blind date to threaten her) Please don’t interpret what he just said. There’s no need to interpret this. You must have a secret to seducing men. In Korean, it’s called the “Push-and-Pull” technique. (On our first date,) (I hugged him as I was saying goodbye to him) – She ended the date with a hug. / – That’s nice. If Shiho gives you a hug, it’s game over, isn’t it? Exactly. Did you just give him a hug? That feeling must have resonated when he was heading… (I think I gave him a kiss on his cheek) – These will have lasting effects. / – They really do. These things leave a long-lasting resonance. – Your heart goes… / – Your heart starts beating… Gosh, just imagining it is making me go crazy. I know. Do you have any stories like this, Jeongmin? I was with my then boyfriend the whole day and shook his hand as I was saying goodbye to him. – A handshake? / – A handshake? Were you guys making a deal? I grabbed his hand, and he kissed my hand right here. – That’s so romantic. / – I remembered that feeling. Right? Of course, you’d remember it. Even if it’s a man whom you love, your mom should approve of him, too. Did she like him? (My father was a little against it. He was worried) What was he worried about? (He asked me, “Are you going to be okay with him?) – He’s a fighter. / – He could look a little scary. Fighter. Yes, that’s true. (When I was dating Sunghoon, my close friends asked me) (Why I was dating him) (But when they met him in person,) (They approved of him because he was sweet and kind) Do you think they were scared of him when they met him? (He’s a sweet, good person) I heard that when you were dating Sunghoon, you changed your style for each date. (Aren’t men attracted to seeing something unexpected?) – That’s right. / – What do you mean exactly? (I think I wore a black dress on our first date) (After that, I wore jeans to show him my casual look) (I met him once after work wearing a party makeup) Even when you had no party to go to? Koreans would see that as being wasteful. – Being wasteful? / – Yes, being wasteful. Please don’t translate this. You shouldn’t. Which style did Sunghoon like the best? The sexy style, the party makeup… (I’m not sure because I’ve never asked him,) (But after going on a date) (Wearing a different style of clothing,) (I looked at him as I was saying goodbye in his car) (And saw his eyes sparkle) – My goodness. / – My goodness. He was head over heels for you. (Oh gosh) (You know the face one has when one’s madly in love?) (He had that face) (So I thought, “He has fallen for me.”) – Wow, you’re really amazing. / – She knows so well. You look so happy thinking about his face at that time. (I just remembered the look on his face) (His eyes were really sparkling) I’m sure they were. (The fighter and the model fell in love) (After dating for two years, they got married in 2009) A wedding proposal must be made before getting married. I heard that Sunghoon proposed to you first. How did he propose to you? (I remember. After having dinner on my birthday,) (He left by himself saying that he had a stomachache) (I was disappointed and opened the door to my house) (And saw many candles) (I walked in my room and it was filled with balloons) (There was a letter too) What did the letter say? (He said we should respect and trust each other) (He also said we should overcome) (Everything with strong will) Did he give you the ring, too? (Yes, he had the ring) (I was really surprised) – Why? / – Was it not what you expected? (While opening the box,) (I was worried that it may not be the diamond I liked) (You are so honest) (I was nervous opening it,) (But the ring turned out to be beautiful) He’s got a good taste. Today, a special guest came for Yano Shiho. Is it Sunghoon? This person is someone who has been closely – watching her marriage. / – It must be Sarang. Can you guess who it is? – Sarang? / – Let’s find out. – Please come on out. / – Really? Welcome! (It’s her father-in-law, Choo Gyee) – Hello. / – Hello. What a surprise! (This is such a surprise!) It’s nice to meet you. Yano Shiho! Hello. (It’s nice to see you here, father!) (A friend to Sarang) He really surprised her. (This is the best) (I am so surprised) (Is she surprised because it was unexpected?) You must be really surprised. (Or is it because her father-in-law came?) (I was really surprised) She seems to be really surprised. That was the highest tone she made today. (Thank you so much for having him here) We’ve seen him a lot on TV with his son, Sunghoon, it’s still surprising how similar they look. Obviously they look alike. Please say hello to our viewers. It’s nice to meet you all. (Thanks for having me) He’s lovely. He’s very famous these days. I thought he owned a massage chair company. He has a famous line. “Good job, Sarang.” “Good job, my darling.” You know that you are famous, right? This time, I went to Namdaemun Market. The owner of a noodle shop gave me free… – She gave you free noodles? / – Yes, it was for free. Free noodles. And she even gave Sarang allowance. How lovely! You must be so happy these days. (He’s jealous) What did you think of her when you first met her? When I first met her, I thought she was beautiful and tall – and she had a loud voice. / – You didn’t like that? – Well… / – What are you talking about? – It didn’t matter much, but… / – Listen to yourself. I heard you can imitate your daughter-in-law’s voice. You did? – I heard that you can. / – But his voice is too low. – Can you show us? / – My voice can’t be like hers. – Still, please try. / – “Sarang, you’re the best!” Sarang, so impressive! He got it. He’s the best. He’s good. Please brag about your daughter-in-law to us. Ever since we met, she’s been giving me birthday presents every year. She always calls me too. Presents are nice, but my mom particularly loves getting money for presents. – Does she give you money too? / – Not really. – Not really. / – She doesn’t give you money. Please give him some pocket money. In Japan, it’s not usual for younger people to give their elders money. Is it considered disrespectful? – Is that right, Sayuri? / – He’s right. – We don’t do that. / – But I am Korean, so it doesn’t matter. (I am Korean) Since he’s Korean, he doesn’t mind it. (I understand) He’s Korean. – He’s right. / – Okay. We heard she is very easy-going. In our town in Osaka, there is an old style public bath house. It’s a mixed gender bath house. – Mixed gender? / – Yes. – No, it’s not. / – No, they don’t go inside together. He means the locker room is shared by men and women. You can see people naked. – You can? / – Yes. – How can that be? / – How can that be? There’s an area in the middle that can oversee both sides. – Only that person can see. / – There are thieves. – He has to oversee that. / – Yes, he needs to. – He collects entrance fees. / – How do you get hired? – He wants to apply for the job. / – I get embarrassed. She’s popular, but she’s not embarrassed. You get embarrassed, too. I hide in the corner. As long as you hide in the corner, you are fine. Like what he said, don’t you get embarrassed? (We can’t be seen from the male’s locker room) (The person in the middle might be able to see us) – That’s what we’re saying. / – He must be a man. Sometimes there’s a man, and sometimes there’s a woman. They work in shifts. Perhaps the woman is a man dressed as a woman? Maybe the woman is… The point is that that’s how easy-going she is. She goes to the old bath house because it feels comfortable. She is very lovely, but is there something you want her to change? – Is there something you don’t like? / – Be honest. Her cooking is… What? (Hold on) She is lovely, but I wish she could cook better. (He humiliated his daughter-in-law) She turned red. Is her food bad? I’m just saying it could be better. (Yes, stop asking) A while ago, she said she was good at cooking. She said she cooks quite well. – Who said that? / – She said it. What was the most memorable dish she’s ever cooked? Steamed white rice, was it? – Steamed white rice. / – Steamed white rice? – Yes. / – Nothing else? It’s really delicious. – So that was the best. / – Yes. – I don’t remember anything else. / – Wait. She only cooked salad and pasta for you. Were there more? (When you came, we always ate out) I remember. I think we ate out. Why do you keep stopping him from talking? She’s pressuring him. We will ask you this. She’s a top model. How did you feel to have a top model as a daughter-in-law? Sunghoon had dated many beautiful ladies before. But she was the tallest. Sir, we asked you the question, but your answer is quite embarrassing. How lovely is your daughter-in-law? (Please compliment your daughter-in-law) Please tell us. When my wife was younger, she had muscles. – Is that so? / – Yes. So you are saying that your wife was prettier. No, she had muscles. – I see. / – That’s not the question. We’re asking how lovely your daughter-in-law is. I am saying my wife had more muscles than her. – That’s not what we’re asking. / – Sir. Okay, I will wrap it up. His daughter-in-law is lovely, but his wife was even lovelier. If both your wife and your daughter-in-law were here, who would you choose? – Of course it’s… / – If you met them earlier. Let’s say you could choose between them. Please stand up. (He’s a fighter’s dad) He won’t answer. – Of course, it would be my wife. / – That’s right. But I am curious. Your daughter-in-law is a top model. – But did you know? / – I didn’t know. I knew he was dating her, but I didn’t know who Yano Shiho was. – You didn’t know. / – And you found out about it. How did you feel after knowing how famous she was? I thought Sunghoon did a good job catching her. (He is completely honest) Sunghoon did a good job catching her. – It’s like fishing. / – She was a good catch. What else does he need to say? Let’s check the next object. Shiho’s father-in-law thinks it contains Shiho’s charms. – What is it? / – What’s that? – It’s a Korean traditional dress. / – It’s for a girl. – Isn’t that Sarang’s dress? / – It is. – It’s lovely. / – It is very lovely. (It’s Sarang’s) (She wore it for her first birthday) But why do you think this contains Shiho’s charms? Shiho is Japanese, but when there are parties, she makes Sarang wear this. She lets people know that she’s Korean and I’m so happy. – In Japan? / – Yes. In Japan. Is there a reason why you want her to wear the Korean dress? (In Japan, the expression) (“I” is very important) (In other words, you become the center of the world) (But in Korea, it’s always “we”) (You often use the word “we”) (So when I made her wear the Korean dress,) (Everyone became a part of “we”) (And they were all happy) How did you come up with the name “Sarang”? – It’s a Korean word. / – Sarang. (Sunghoon came up with the name) – Sunghoon did? / – Yes. How was it when you heard that he wanted to name… – your daughter “Sarang?” / – It’s a Korean name. – Yes. / – Oh. Cute! (The pronunciation was cute) (Many people are named “Sara”,) (But no one was named “Sarang” in Japan) (The name Sarang does not exist in Japan) (I like how the name means “Love”) (And I thought it sounded cute) (I thought it was a great name) I wanted to name my child “Sarang” as well. – Really? / – She did it first, though. Sayuri wanted that name, too. – Name her “Saram”. / – Okay, I’ll go with “Saram”. (Saram, you’re amazing) (I actually had a child as soon as I got married,) (But I ended up having a miscarriage) (After that, I couldn’t seem to have a child) (I had to take off two years of work) (And then Sarang came to us) – She’s an amazing child. / – She is. Are you planning on giving Sarang any siblings? Do you want a second child? (I want a second child. I do) – She wants another child. / – I want another child. But what’s stopping you? – Are you too busy? / – I want another child, but Sunghoon doesn’t want another child. So Sunghoon doesn’t want a second child. – Why is that? / – Why? Why? (He feels Sarang is adorable beyond anything else) (And he doesn’t think he can adore another child) He loves her too much. – I see. / – He gave Sarang all his love. (Do any of you have children?) – She asked if you had children. / – Myungsoo and I do. These three don’t. – We both have one child. / – Yes, only one. (Why aren’t you having another child?) I really want another child, too. Me too. I really want another child. (Why don’t you, then?) (Glaring) It’s not like we don’t want to… (I want to know how men think about this) I see. It’s not like that. – Why is it? / – Why? I’ve been trying to have another child. – I’m trying. / – But what is it? It’s a natural process. It’s not up to us to decide. But you’re trying. – Yes. / – How many times a week? (Hey,) (How hard) (Are you trying?) How many times a week? Sir, that’s a private matter. – I was just curious. / – This isn’t a Japanese show. – Please, Sir. / – He’s just asking… He probably meant how many times did he wish for a second child. – Yes, exactly. / – Sunghoon’s father asked a very direct question. – That was very Japanese. / – Yes, really. Myungsoo, aren’t you going to say anything? – Hello? / – Are you pretending not to listen? It’s difficult for me to try. – I see. / – That’s all we need to hear. (Why is it difficult for you to try?) Why? Why? – Why? / – I’m a weak man. My body is frail and weak. My body can’t take it. My goodness. Did Sunghoon really try to breastfeed Sarang? – He loves her too much. / – Seriously. He tried to breastfeed himself? – Really? / – Does he have any milk? – He tried. / – Really? – Why? / – He tried, but Sarang refused. Sarang said no? Did she bite on it? It must be odd from her perspective. Sunghoon bit mine many times. – My breast, I mean. / – Who did? Sunghoon did. – Why would Sunghoon do that? / – When he was young? – When he was a baby? / – Is that true? Our house didn’t have any milk and he was crying hard. So I just thought I’d give it a try. Like father, like son. It was in his genes. (So what happened?) I did it a few times, which made him cry even more – because he couldn’t get milk. / – Of course. I understand. I think for you and Shiho, “The Return of Superman” must have a significant meaning. (It has multiple significant meanings) (My father-in-law and our family lived very far) (One in Tokyo, and one in Osaka) (But we were able to meet more frequently) (And we traveled together to Korea) (Thanks to “The Return of Superman”) (Not only did this bring our family closer,) (But I believe it also brought) (The Korea-Japan relationship closer) (Also, there are many fans of) (“The Return of Superman” in Japan) (I’ve heard from many fans that) (They are watching the show well) (Thanks to the show,) (Many amazing things happened) As much as Sarang is loved, I’m sure she has some difficulties as well. – I agree. / – Isn’t that so? A lot of people recognize her. (That’s right) (Unbelievably many people) (Come up to talk to Sarang) They love her a lot. (From Sarang’s perspective,) (Those people are all strangers to her) (They approach Sarang like this) (When they call her name, she gets very surprised) People are glad to see her, but Sarang may be very surprised. – It must be hard. / – And it’s not just a few people. (I was very surprised at first, too) (But many Koreans) (Treated us as a part of the family) (On our first encounter) (After understanding the Korean culture,) (It was easy for me to adjust) Is that not the case in Japan? People never touch other people’s babies. Even if they were a famous person’s child? Celebrities’ children are never exposed on TV. They don’t know the child. Even a paparazzi shot will cause a lot of trouble which will end in a lawsuit. Koreans tend to show their love. – It’s a sign of love. / – It is. (Yes, you’re right) But the child can be shocked if too many people are like that. I heard this last thing she brought is something that she can’t throw away even if she wants to. – What is it? / – Right? – Let’s take a look. / – Let’s see. – Are those Sunghoon’s? / – Yes, they are. – Oh, is it this? / – These are UFC gloves. We saw these on TV. Yes, we only saw these on TV. I don’t think they’ll fit you. These are his gloves. It looks very old. This is amazing. I heard Shiho asked him to refrain from returning to the ring. – Is that right? / – She’s worried. Really? Since you can make money. Is it because you can make a living? (I didn’t say that,) (But I was against him returning to the ring) (Because I was worried) (I felt scared) (Of course, it’s great to win) (But when he loses… How should I put this?) (I get hurt very deeply) (Have you ever felt like your heart) (Was breaking into pieces?) (That’s what it feels like) We are disappointed and hurt even as a fan watching Sunghoon. – It must be worse for the family. / – His wife. That’s how his wife feels, but how do you feel, Sir? You must feel different when you see him fight. It’s perfectly fine for him to engage in a fight without getting hurt or injured. But… Well, the thing is I always hope that he doesn’t get hurt or injured during his matches. Also I hope that he’d win. – It’d be great. / – Yes, yes. How does it feel when he loses or gets injured? It must break your heart. It hurts even more than getting hit myself. When he returned to the ring and had his first fight, he won the fight, but his face was swollen. – I remember seeing Yano Shiho cry. / – You’re right. Daddy’s home. Daddy! (His swollen face) Daddy tried his best, Sarang. (The inside of my mouth got ripped, so it hurts) (But it’s delicious) (I can’t seem to look straight into your face) (Mommy, why are you crying?) – Because I’m happy. / – Why? – Why did you cry? / – I’m happy. (Feeling heavy-hearted) We have a surprise message for Shiho. – Really? / – Let’s take a look. – Whose message is it? / – We’re getting many messages. – Can you hear me? / – Yes. (Shiho receives a surprise message from her husband) It’s from Sunghoon. When are you the most grateful to your wife? All the time. She’s busy working with her own schedule, but she does many chores at home. Also, I don’t make a lot of money as a martial artist fighter. I don’t make much money, but she never complained once. Instead, she said that she can make more money. I’m truly grateful for her beautiful heart. I’m always thankful. Do you express your love and appreciation for her often? Not that often. I think it’s partially because it’s been seven years. I think “Thank you” and “I love you” are pretty much the same thing for me. Congratulations on making an appearance on “Happy Together”. Are you talking to them all right? Isn’t Korean very difficult? But keep studying well and always stay healthy. Let’s live a happy life together with Sarang. I love you, Honey. Do well! (Tears and smiles) It made her tear up. She’s crying. That was very touching. Why are you crying so much? (I was suddenly relieved) (I was very nervous on this show so far,) (But I just got relieved the moment I saw his face) Should I give her a hug in Sunghoon’s place? (What a humorous man) – Maybe some other time. / – Your wife is watching you. (I actually heard him say…) (“I love you” for the first time) It was his first time. (He barely says “I love you”) Isn’t that more charming, though? Saying “I love you” once in a while, instead of saying it every day. Saying it every day is better. You should say that to Sunghoon. Say something. Tell Shiho that you love her every day. Shiho, how about you say something to Sunghoon? – Leave him a message. / – A short one. (Thanks for the message) Thank you for the message. (You have an important match) (In Korea on November 28th) (Your family and your Korean fans will root for you,) (So do your best. Good luck) (“Happy Together” wishes you luck!) Sunghoon has a match in November. He does. It’s a big one and I hope everything works in his favor. – Let’s wish him luck. / – Good luck! Good luck. Thank you for listening to everything I said. Thank you for showing a lot of love and support for my family. I hope you will continue to love us even more. Thank you. (We thank our guests for joining us) We’ll see you again next week. – Thank you. / – Thank you.
