Jaeseok : My son is just like me in elementary school [Happy Together/2019.11.21]On March 14, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
Hyunjin recently made a freelance announcer gathering and it has created a buzz. Right. – I saw the picture. / – Many of them looked familiar. – Your wife was there too. / – Right. There’s a gathering of current MBC announcers – called Chorok. / – Yes. But as many of them quit, there was no reason any more to bring them together. So we formed another gathering called “Bora”. – Bora? / – Why Bora?. – Not Chorok, but Bora. / – Yes, it was a simple idea. So those who quit sometimes meet up and have dinner together. When there’s something to congratulate, we congratulate each other. We share how we are doing. We meet up quite often. I see. As for Kyungeun, she is… Is she doing all right? Yes, she’s doing all right. Her husband is right here. Iljung. You could have just asked me. – Well… / – “Is she doing all right?” Don’t you think it’s a bit strange? I mean, at the gathering… I was talking about the gathering. He’s trying to come between you two. – She’s doing great. / – That’s nice. We see each other often. Did Kyungeun enter the station in the same year as you? – Right. / – Yes, with Kyungeun, and Jiae’s husband, Kim Jeongkeun. You must have seen her dating Jaeseok then. Since she was near her, I’m sure she has. She must have. She must have been the first to have heard about it. She tried to keep it secret, but I could see it. – I could feel the pink vibe. / – I see. How? Around that time, she started saying things like, “Comedian Yu Jaeseok seems like a nice person.” Really? – It’s true. / – I didn’t know about this either. – Before they started dating. / – Before that, we talked about many different things as colleagues when we were getting trained. And she once talked specifically about Jaeseok. – Interesting. / – I haven’t heard about this either. She said she liked funny and hard-working men. How did she talk about her relationship with you? Since they started dating, she tried to keep it – secret from us. / – I see. We tried to keep it secret, but everyone knew it. Of course, we all knew. Some of my senior announcers even called him son-in-law, even though we didn’t know how it would go. (Jaeseok is our family.) Son-in-law. They would call me that, yes. – Son-in-law. / – Son-in-law. It would have been awkward if they broke up, – but they ended up getting married. / – Right. Doesn’t she say any bad things about her husband? I have never heard her say bad things about him. – Never? / – Never. There’s nothing she feels bad about? Kyungeun has rather other concerns these days. Last time we met, – she said Jiho is now in third grade now / – Right. and he’s at puberty. She said he started to have an ego – these days. / – Right. She said to me, “Genes are crucial after all.” – Oh, no. / – She said he keeps trying to make others laugh. (It runs in the blood.) He’s going to be hosting a show soon. She said he would say a joke and see if other people find it funny or not. He seems to do that, yes. She said he started to have this desire – to make others laugh. / – When I look at him, I don’t want to believe that it’s true, but I keep being reminded of myself in elementary school. He likes to entertain other people. He checks how others react. He really surprises me from time to time. Kyungeun really loves her husband and her son. She says, “But his jokes are so funny.” She said her son was so funny.
