Heejun “Jaeseok is our Father” LOL [Happy Together/2019.01.10]On February 3, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
– Hello. / – Hello. – What are you wearing? / – It’s like a comedy skit. A fairy will show up for your test. – Oh, my. / – She’s so cute. – It’s Na Haeun. / – It’s Haeun. – The dancing prodigy. / – Right. (She has 2.73 million subscribers.) (From girls’ hip-hop dance) (to dance covers) (She was born to be a dancer.) (The 10-year-old dance prodigy Na Haeun) Haeun will dance to the songs of some groups. Guess the number of members of the groups. – The number of members? / – That’s right. – Are you ready? / – Yes. (Powerful) (“We Are the Future” by H.O.T.) “We Are the Future”. She’s good. (She’s dancing the dance from the 1990s easily.) My goodness. (Amazed) – She’s amazing. / – She’s really good. – Please do not cheat. / – Okay. What do you mean? You shouldn’t copy someone else’s answer. – I see. / – Do not copy. – “Do not copy.” / – No cheating. It’s Chakra’s song. No cheating. Guess the number of members of the groups. Isn’t it too easy for them? She’s so flexible. She’s really good. – The answer is nine. / – Oh, yes! – Sam and Paul, / – Of course I knew it. who failed, will have another chance later on. If you fail again, you should go home. You should go home. She has her own style. She’s so talented. – It’s hard even for us. / – She really is a prodigy. (Her facial expressions are perfect too.) (Charismatic) – She’s incredible. / – She’s amazing. How does she do that? (Everyone will become a fan of Haeun’s.) (She starts dancing once the music starts.) It’s TWICE’s song. (Choose one of these two) That’s good. Haeun really is ambitious about music. – How many were they? / – Do you know this song? (How many members are in TWICE?) How can she be this good? – That’s amazing. / – Her legs move so fast. She’s better than me. My goodness. – I respect her. / – She’s a great dancer. How does she dance like that? Exactly. How does she do that? (Smooth transition to BTS’ “Idol”) She’s dancing to another song. It’s BTS’ song. Did she memorize all those dances? Of course she did. These are all idol groups’ songs. Can she do that too? – She’s amazing. / – She’s good. She’s better at dancing the latest dances. (The dance fairy doesn’t miss any details.) She’s amazing. (Kicking) Did she memorize all the choreographies? She’ll become a great dancer. (A lot of people will become her fans.) – That’s all. / – She’s incredible. The end. (She finishes her performance perfectly.) – She’s unbelievable. / – I’m amazed. You did a great job. – Good job. / – She’s not even out of breath. What kind of dance are you best at? I can do all kinds if I practice. Look. Did you see Haeun after her performance? She talked to us right after dancing. – She’s not out of breath. / – That’s unbelievable. – She’s not 40 like you. / – She’s not out of breath. Are you affiliated with any agency right now? He tries to recruit people every chance he got. – You know how it works. / – I think she is. It’s total chaos in here right now. (Struggling with numbers) 12, 13… (Having a meltdown) (It’s too difficult.) All right. Sam Kim wrote 20, and Paul Kim wrote 24. The correct answer is 26. – My gosh. / – Yes. The two Kims got it wrong, so they will go back home now. (“Paul and Sam Fail to Enter the Secret Chamber”) We’ll give them an easy question. It’s Tony. (Wanna One’s “Energetic” that we all love) Oh, my. (She would’ve won “Produce 101”.) – Correct. / – She’s a cultural asset. She’s simply amazing. Isn’t she an adult who just happens to be short? (Conspiracy theory rises.) No kid can dance like she does. – She’s like an adult. / – How does she do that? – She’s amazing. / – It’s really difficult. Kids around her age need systematic guidance. – Stop it already. / – I run an academy. – You run an academy? / – Yes. Visit me at my office and take a look at the contract. I don’t think you should teach her. – She should be the teacher. / – He’s right. – She’s so good. / – I should learn from her. Even if she teaches a dance class, – it wouldn’t be weird. / – Right. Haeun, you did such a great job today. – Thank you for coming. / – Thank you. – She’s adorable. / – Bye. I envy Haeun. – Bye. Study hard. / – Visit me at Hannam-dong. Now you know who Saeho dressed as today, – right? / – I know now. I really have no idea. – Aren’t you Buddha? / – No. You look like Buddha. – His hair is similar too. / – I’m Buddhist. – I’m sure he’s Buddha. / – Wherever he’s from, his watch tells me he’s a corrupt monk. – He… / – I earned money to buy it. – Did you? / – Don’t misunderstand me. There’s a statue like him at a Thai massage shop. It looks just like you. – I’ve seen one too. / – Right? I’ll do my best. It was a happy event in the music industry in 2018. H.O.T. held a concert after 17 years. – Finally. / – That was great. I was touched. – Heejoon, finally. / – 100,000 people gathered. – I wanted to go there too. / – Your fans are amazing. I thought they were EXO or BTS when they arrived. – But they’re H.O.T. / – I was so surprised. – They’re so popular. / – It was incredible. Their fans gave them lunchboxes too. They received lunchboxes too. It’s amazing that 100,000 people gathered. Exactly. It’s still hard to believe. Even while looking at all the fans, – it felt like a dream. / – Of course. It’s hard to believe, and I’m so grateful. We performed on stage after a long time after all. We performed together again after 17 years. But our fans didn’t forget about us and came to our concert. So many people came that we kept saying, “It’s so hard to believe. It feels like a dream.” In fact, we weren’t sure about holding the concert at such a large stadium. It wasn’t that big for you back in the days. We wondered if we could fill the audience. We weren’t sure if we could. While standing on the stage and looking at the 100,000 people in the audience, it felt like I traveled back in time. I was in high school when they were active. When H.O.T. broke up just like in the movie “Oldboy”, if we had known that it would take 17 years, wouldn’t you have been angry? – Would you have not waited for us? / – That’s not it. If you’d known, you wouldn’t have waited? There’s a rumor that Heejoon went back to how he used to be. It’s not that I went back to how I used to be. I was worried I might go back. I kept telling myself while I was on the stage, – Tell us. / – “After today,” “I’ll go back and record ‘Immortal Songs’.” “I should never go back to how I used to be” “or live with the mindset I used to have.” – I suppressed my urges. / – Realistic Heejoon. – “I’m on stage now,” / – He prevented it. “but tomorrow, I’ll be back in reality.” “It’s actually happening, but it’s a dream to me.” Yes. That makes me cherish my dream more. – Go ahead, Tony. / – If I may add, – I felt similarly. / – Please explain. After the concert, I had this feeling. “Am I H.O.T. again?” That’s how I felt. – We all felt that. / – Just as I was feeling that, I thought again, “I should go back to variety shows.” – “I should be funny.” / – You kept it together. It was miraculous that we reunited. Lee Sooman helped us make our debut. But we were able to reunite thanks to Jaeseok. – I didn’t do that. / – He’s the next Sooman. – So I call him “Father”. / – It was the staff… Father, thank you so much. – He’s our father. / – Hold on. – All right, fine. / – He’s our father. Well done. Well done. So many people refer to him as their father. There must be many. But we’re grateful to him because “Saturday Saturday is for Singers” took years of preparation. The crew worked really hard. At a certain point, they could’ve said it wasn’t easy and give up on H.O.T. It’d been three to four years since it was brought up. But they didn’t give up on us until the end. Jaeseok said we should give it another try and to not give up. – So we pushed through. / – It turned out well. It really turned out well. It’s been a long time, but the producer of this show used to be a member of Club H.O.T. – It’s true. / – Really? Is that why you dressed me like this? (Is that why she made Hyunmoo dress up?) I am drenched in sweat. Former members of Club H.O.T. – are everywhere. / – Yes. Do you still have the H.O.T. DNA necklace? Really? – Really? / – Whose DNA? – She bought everyone’s. / – That’s it. – That’s the DNA necklace. / – Is it real DNA? If human cloning technique gets developed in 10 or 20 years, she can use that. – She still has them? / – If it’s possible. Those contain their DNA. From what I remember, they took 10 strands of hair. – Was it just you? / – I gave my blood too. – Your blood too? / – Yes. – I gave my blood. / – Those necklaces are well-made. – Right. / – Honestly, I want to open that. – What’s in it? / – CSI should examine it. You want to see if your DNA is in there. Perhaps it’s Lee Sooman’s DNA in there. Maybe it’s not ours. “I should put my DNA in it.” “This is a great keepsake.” – No way. / – He couldn’t have done it. Why would Mr. Lee do that to H.O.T. souvenir? He wouldn’t have done that. – I suddenly remembered. / – Remember what? I met H.O.T. back when I was in high school. – Really? / – Where? There was a show that featured H.O.T. And part of the show was “Music Drama”. Kangta was the lead actor. – I was the lead actress. / – Really? It was a really long time ago. Were you a fan of H.O.T. too? – Of course. / – Really? – Yes. / – Who did you like? – Me? / – You sounded too awkward. – It’s true. / – “Of course”. Yoonhee, you are very flustered. You seem anxious. – Not Sechs Kies? / – I was Tony’s fan. – You were on my radio show. / – Right, I was. – I… / – During the interview, Yoonhee said she wasn’t a fan of H.O.T. – Why did you… / – Why did you lie, then? Why would you lie about… She was dancing to “Pom Saeng Pom Sa”. “Is Sechs Kies coming?” At the time, I wasn’t interested in men. – But I was interested in Tony then. / – Really? Really? Hwangbo, why did you cry at Sechs Kies’ concert? – Why? Why? / – It’s fine if you are not a fan of H.O.T. You might be a fan of Sechs Kies. She was talking as if – she was an H.O.T. fan. / – I thought so too. But she cried elsewhere. Why did you cry at Sechs Kies’ concert? H.O.T. and Sechs Kies were popular when I was in high school. But I couldn’t go to your concert. I wasn’t in Korea then. I really wanted to go. Anyway, I went to Sechs Kies’ concert and… It was sad. – Really? / – Yes. When they were singing a ballad song, I was reminded of the past and cried in front of the people there. My friend was embarrassed of me. Those people must’ve thought I was Sechs Kies’ fan. I cried quite hard. I would’ve cried at your concert too. – Hwangbo cries a lot. / – I see. – It’s true. / – When you listen to a song, you are reminded of the memories. I remembered the guy I used to have a crush on. – I remembered everything. / – It makes you emotional. H.O.T. and Sechs Kies held a concert on the same day. That made you and Jae Duck become awkward. This is ridiculous. Before the two groups made the comeback, there was no secret between us. – We talked about everything. / – You had no secrets. We talked about everything over a drink at home. – Anyway, we made our comeback first. / – Okay. After that, we started to have fewer things to talk about. – Really? / – It’s because… – You didn’t have more? / – When you talk, you are bound to talk about your team – or your team members. / – Right. In the past, I could casually ask, “What are you guys doing now?” “Is Sechs Kies releasing a new album?” He used to say, “Yes, we will.” Now, we don’t ask each other such questions. Are you saying you became rivals again? – Yes. / – The rivalry is back. We do want to talk about things, but there are team secrets. – There are things you can’t talk about. / – Right. So I couldn’t tell him about our concert. Coincidentally, we held our concerts – on the same day. / – Right. We didn’t know about each other’s concert. – We didn’t know. / – Do you still live together? – Are you separated? / – We do, but we don’t see each other often. – It became awkward. / – They became rivals. H.O.T. and Sechs Kies are fighting fiercely – once again. / – Right. It seems like there is tension between the two. – They are forever rivals. / – I intentionally put gifts from fans in the living room. Even the white balloons? We compete over who gets more gifts from fans. What are you two doing? What are you doing? I am curious. Until when will you live together? – I know. / – Do you want to move in? – Sorry? / – Will you move in if there’s a vacancy? I live alone, so I get really lonely. By the way, Saeho used to live with Nam Changhee, but they separated. Why do you keep visiting each other’s house? We miss each other so much now that we are separated. Just yesterday, we watched a movie together. – So why do you do that? / – I get too lonely. Aren’t spouses who only meet – on weekends sweeter to each other? / – Right. – Right. / – Is that what you want? – Wait. / – Is that what you prefer? We are fine because we are still newlyweds. Did you hold hands while eating again? – Of course. / – Did you? – I envy them. / – Since it was mentioned on the show, you will have to hold hands whenever you eat out now. – People might think we fought otherwise. / – Exactly. When they eat steak, – They hold hands. / – they hold hands. How do you cut the steak? – It’s very uncomfortable. / – You cut it first. – Like this. / – They eat while holding hands? You must do that with your wife. How long have you been married? It’s been over a year. Has it been nearly two years? When will this end? It won’t last much longer. (They won’t hold hands for much longer.) Will they let go of their hands? “Enjoy.” That will happen soon. – After two years, you eat alone. / – Are you sad? I don’t want to become like that. – That’s only natural. / – They might not eat. – By the way… / – It was a big hit that they eat while holding hands. By the way, when I was younger, (Clapping) – everyone knew… / – Did she just hit the slate? – What was that? / – Is that for the editor? She wanted to change the subject.
