Kwanghee “I went without calling Jaeseok”[Happy Together/2019.02.28]On February 20, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
By the way, you invited the six of us expecting to make two episodes. – I was upset about it. / – Why? The Celeb girls were four people, – but made two episodes. / – Did you say “Sailor Moon”? (The Sailor Moon girls made two episodes.) – Sailor Moon? / – I mean, Celeb Five. – What’s wrong with you? / – Didn’t he say “Sailor”? (Sailor Five) Don’t be so nervous. Warm yourself by the fire. Why are you so nervous? (It feels like a campfire event.) Slow down. Stop watching out for me. I’m not your rival. I’m not interested in you. I’m not interested in you either. Don’t go near the fire. You’ll burn down. – Like firewood. / – You’re dry firewood. (The dry firewood of variety shows) They’re the top entertainers of 2019 who are also chosen by Jaeseok. And Kwanghee stands out the most. – What do you mean? / – He’s enjoying the fame of his military discharge. – How could you say that? / – It’s true. – I was popular before. / – He described it – a little bluntly. / – Is my fame temporary? – Discharge Special. / – Is this a New Year Special? – That’s ridiculous. / – After you lost weight, – you look like Bae Youngman now. / – He’s right. “Don’t do that.” – “Don’t do that.” / – He… (He imitates Bae Youngman.) – He just said… / – “Don’t do that.” (He looks like a paper doll.) Sechan just said… Sechan just said that he looked like Youngman. – And you voiced it. / – I used to be an idol singer. After his military discharge… I met him briefly before he was discharged. I said that he’d lost too much weight and that it’s not good. I told him to gain weight, but he didn’t believe me. He only regretted it after he saw his photo. He looks like he’s wearing a water polo cap. (A water polo cap?) My goodness. What is wrong with you? (Let me see. Oh, he’s right.) That’s absurd. He said to let’s do our best and help each other out, yet he’s attacking me. – That’s mean. / – I didn’t attack you. – Are you trying to survive alone? / – No, no. – I didn’t attack you. / – You became so skinny. You have many new nicknames. – What are your nicknames? / – Cotton Swab. – Tissue Paper. / – Tissue Paper? The ultra-thin paper. Some people call you Dog Bowl. (Dog Bowl Celebrity No. 1) – What’s wrong with you? / – Oh, right. How could you call your guest a dog bowl? – People say you look like Hong Jinkyung. / – Right. I host a TV show with Changhee and Kwanghee. – Everyone thinks he’s Jinkyung. / – I’m sure. They ask why Jinkyung is on an idol star show. I also heard I look like Twist Kim. (His fifth doppelganger) – He looks like Twist Kim. / – Right. I have a really good nickname. – What is it? / – Lincoln. – Abraham Lincoln? / – Yes. I like that nickname. – You look like Lincoln. / – I do. (They look alike.) – He looks like Youngman. / – No. (Amazed) Frankly, I was impressed by him. Did you visit the set of “Running Man” during your military leave? He must’ve been very anxious. When I enlisted in the military, and he joined “Infinite Challenge”, I told myself that I was in the military and I’d left, so I should forget about “Infinite Challenge”. It was over, and the position wasn’t even mine. I honestly thought that if the new member did well, and “Infinite Challenge” got good responses, I wouldn’t visit the set unless I got invited. And I felt comfortable with that. But it changed when I was about to be discharged. You wanted to join a variety show. I wanted to visit the members. I wanted to see Jaeseok. Moreover, “Running Man” is shot near my house. – We film it in Ilsan. / – That’s right. That day, I woke up very early – That’s amazing. / – and went to see him. – I was so surprised. / – I went without calling him. But as soon as he saw me, he said… Since we met after a long time, I thought he’d offer me snacks, but he didn’t. He said, “What are you doing here?” “Why did you lose so much weight?” “Hey, have our guests arrived yet?” It turned out the guests were TWICE members. He thanked me for coming and went out to see them. – He left right away. / – It’s TWICE. Who wouldn’t? – He focused on his work. / – That’s right. I thought my career was over. I had to focus on the recording. – Your feelings were hurt. / – That’s right. Sechan, you also saw him there. – On the “Running Man” set. / – Actually, when I saw him, – I felt a little sorry for him. / – Why? It was nice of him to visit us. But when he said goodbye and left, he acted like a eunuch serving his king. – “Goodbye.” / – Stop that. What are you doing? – It’s true. / – What’s with you? – You wore a padded coat. / – How did he say goodbye? – You’re right. / – Right? He was wearing a white cap. He said goodbye like this. That’s not true. Sechan. – He kept doing this. / – I didn’t do that. I walked backward carefully. (He walked backward very politely.) He said goodbye to everyone like that. – Like a court lady. / – This is what I did. I walked very carefully and politely. – Is it a period drama? / – You made him look bad. I thought Jaeseok might feel uncomfortable. You thought Jaeseok might feel uncomfortable. He visited Jaeseok at the set. – Even before discharge. / – He could’ve just called. Jaeseok would’ve helped him out anyway. I thought visiting him was too much. I need to do things like that these days because so many people try to mooch off of him. – Who? / – Who are they? There are so many blowflies around Jaeseok. – That’s why. / – Are you calling us blowflies? They are blowflies. Do you want to get beaten with poop? (I’m glad you said it.) – That’s not it. / – Blowflies? I never said who they were. – But… / – You can’t say that. I never said it was you. Why are you making a fuss? – It’s understandable, but… / – It’s been 20 years. – He called us blowflies. / – Please don’t be – mistaken. / – I was just saying. – Please don’t be mistaken. / – Yes. We scripted it. – Is this Fly Special? / – We… – They are all flies. / – CNU… CNU can’t laugh loudly. – I am sorry, CNU. / – CNU can’t laugh. – My goodness. / – It’s fun. – Saeho. / – Now we move on – to Changhee. / – By the way, Saeho, you are… Is it just today? You are unusually showing off the script today. Why are you putting it so close to them? – No, I… / – “I am the MC.” – That’s not it. / – “I am the MC.” – Wait. / – I can’t exactly do this, can I? He usually puts it on his lap. – Right. / – Don’t you agree? – Really? / – You seem cocky today. – You’re too cocky. / – Come on, don’t say that. He looks fine today, but up until last week, – he was like a Poongsan dog. / – Right. He’s been waiting to say that. No. It’s just that you seem too conceited today. – He’s neat today. / – He’s never been this cocky. – He never leans forward so much. / – What happened? They are like my brothers. – I’m working hard. / – You wanted to show that. The Poongsan dog joke was – planned ahead of time. / – It’s not true. That was great. Great. – It’s Changhee’s turn. / – Yes. – He’s like an MC. / – I will carefully ask a question in the script. – You look different today, my friend. / – Changhee, have you ever made Jaeseok sad? Are you questioning a witness? – What is that? / – He’s like a lie detector. – What is that? / – You have to ask properly. I would’ve brought a lawyer if I knew. – Talk to my lawyer. / – Changhee, did something happen? What could possibly happen? – What are you talking about? / – Take a week off. Did something happen to you? You’re strange. Today is not an easy day for me. – Go get some air. / – What do you mean? – There’s fine dust. / – Have a seat. He asked if you ever made me feel bad. – What is it about? / – You might not remember. I was in “Mr. Sunshine”. – I know that. I know. / – He’s an actor. The shoot… My role was only small, so there aren’t any major anecdotes. On the second day of the shoot, both Lee Byunghun and Kim Taeri were there. They were all at the shoot. So you can imagine how nervous I was. I hadn’t been in a drama shoot in a while. I had to address Taeri as “My lady”. (Yes, my lady.) (Yes, my lady.) (“My lady” was a popular line.) I made a mistake and called her “miss”. – Instead of “my lady”. / – I called her “miss”. Byunghun said that was the title of her film. – Right. / – He loosened up the mood. He tried to loosen me up, but I became more nervous. Anyhow, I had to call her “my lady”, but I ended up calling her “mister”. “Yes, mister.” I made a mistake. Then I realized, – “I got an anecdote.” / – Right. So I called Jaeseok and told him about how I called her “mister” instead of “my lady”, and he cackled. “You should say that on my show.” – Right. / – On Happy Together. I told him to say it exclusively on Happy Together. “Don’t say it anywhere else.” “Honestly, it’s not the funniest joke,” “but I think it would work.” – “Okay? Okay.” / – “Yes.” – “Okay.” / – “Okay.” A week later, I talked about it on “Men on A Mission.” He said it there. – We had a verbal agreement. / – Who knew when I would get invited here? I had to say it while it was still in trend. You waited 20 years. Why couldn’t you wait? You waited 20 years to get this far. I didn’t want to wait 21 years. – 20 years were enough. / – You made a promise. He should’ve said it here as he promised. – Why say it on another show? / – Saeho. – Why is your face red? / – Calm down. What’s up with him? – Why is he so upset? / – He’s like Hodong. – Slow down. / – I apologize. – Sorry about my behavior. / – He’s like Hodong. Saeho, you’re trying too hard to prove yourself today. You’re less than half as good as you usually are. Right. I feel so exposed in front of them. – Did people react well to it on the show? / – Yes. It turned out well. There were many articles about it. How did Jaeseok react to it? – Jaeseok called me. / – He saw it? I called him. He said he was very offended. (I am so offended, Changhee.) – He’s a good guy. / – That’s what I said. He’s a good guy, but he said, – “I am so offended.” / – “I am so offended.” “Don’t call me for three weeks!” (He received severe punishment.) I told him that. “How could you talk about it there?” – I was so offended. / – Then did you prepare another anecdote for us? No, I wasn’t in many scenes, so that’s it. – Wait. Yoonhee… / – That was… – She’s sharp. / – She was very sharp. Sechan is going to teach Yoonhee one of his talents. – Really? / – Sechan has a lot of special talents. Her goal is winning the Rookie Award. – Right. / – This will help. – Anyone can do this. / – That’s great. – I’m sure you will do well. / – Great. It’s impersonating the sound of a boat horn. Anyone can do it with a microphone. – Right. / – Show us. Say, say, say. Say one, two. Please increase the high frequencies. Please increase the mid frequencies. Say. Say. That’s good. Okay, here we go. Put the microphone here. It comes up all the way here. To make the sound, block your nose and just cry. (This is how you make the boat horn sound.) (What do you think? Isn’t it very easy?) That’s it. Now you can mimic the boat horn. Put the mic on your throat. (Boat horn mimicry tip) (He sounds the boat horn.) How can I do that? (She’s terrified.) What do you mean? Do it. You have to win the Rookie Award. – You have to win the Rookie Award. / – That’s right. – You have to do it. / – Yoonhee. You will not look like me. – You will look pretty. / – He was so ugly. Wait. (He leaves his seat.) How can I do that? – You have to do it. / – It’s a talent. – It’s a talent. / – I can’t help being ugly. You have to win the Rookie Award. “The Rookie Award goes to Yoonhee the Boat Horn.” Yoonhee the Boat Horn. (Yoonhee will give it a try.) That’s it. Now put the mic on your throat. You have to drag it for a while. – Drag it. / – Compress your neck. At least eight of your frontal teeth should show. You have to drag it for a long time. (She has to give up her looks for this.) (Can the rookie variety show star do it?) (Cry) – No. No. / – I can’t do it. (The boat sets sail safely.) (Are you okay? You are surprised, aren’t you?) – I can’t do it. / – Yes, you can. That was good. – Yoonhee. / – I can’t do it. That’s good enough. – Do the double horn. / – That was so funny. Please do the double horn. – There’s the double horn. / – Which one? The double horn. – Yoonhee is hilarious. / – This is what you did. You have to open your mouth widely. (This is the advanced version.) (She can’t believe what she saw.) – The boat is sailing. / – You seem to hate his face. – Yes. / – You are different. – You’re different. / – Open your mouth big. Put it on your neck. (She hates it, but she gives it a try.) (She opens her mouth.) (She’s cute.) (She breaks new ground in KBS variety show scene.) That’s perfect. – The sound was small. / – Yoonhee. (That’s perfect.) – Mijoo, try it. / – Try it, Mijoo. (Mijoo will give it a try.) Mijoo. – That’s it. / – That’s it. – She will be good. / – Raise it more. – Raise it. / – You should put it here. – Roll your eyes. / – That’s it. (She sounds the boat horn while rolling her eyes.) – That was good. / – That’s perfect. (You are done training now.) Give it a try, CNU. – This is fun. / – Everyone can do it. I was waiting to try it. (Are you listening to it, Trainee Mijoo?) (It’s perfect as a wake-up alarm.) – CNU will watch it in the army base. / – Perfect. – You just need a mic. / – Do it one more time, – Yoonhee. / – Encore. – Great. / – Cry three times. Let’s set sail, Captain. (Well done.) (She’s completely adapted to the variety show.) – I hate it. / – She… She just… She just hates becoming ugly. – “I hate it.” / – “I hate it.” – That was so funny. / – Changhee. – Yoonhee’s is the funniest. / – I won’t do it again. – It’s special. / – Hers is the funniest. – “I hate it.” / – Right. That’s funnier. She thinks he’s really ugly. He’s too ugly. (Thanks to Sechan, we found her new talent.) Yongjin, you revealed your girlfriend of seven years. Can you tell us about when you went to Palau together? You jumped straight to Palau. – It’s… / – That’s not it. You could’ve gone straight to that question. Is he in his right mind? How can he mistreat me like this? – What’s this? / – You… You should’ve just gone straight to the Palau story. – Yes. / – You could’ve just asked that straight. – Why the seven years? / – Bring the award next week. – Okay. / – His talk… – My gosh. / – You should be grateful that I didn’t skip the question. – You just lack sincerity. / – Sincerity? Okay. You should’ve just written a letter. He’s a true romantic. – How lovely is that? / – Yongjin seems boastful, – but when it comes to love… / – It’s too long. You have to hurry. Tell us about Palau. (Everything ends with Palau.) Then how… Why bother if you’re just going to repeat that? It ends the same way. – I will try it again. / – That was great. – That was great. / – Tell us about your trip. – Tell us. / – Should I tell you everything about what I did in five days? – No. / – Only the highlights. Tell us about how extraordinary your girlfriend is. – Wait. / – That’s… Yes? Have you been dating for seven years? This year is our seventh year. – That’s a long time. / – Yes. That was when we just started going out. I think we had been dating for about a year then. I like scuba diving, so we got the license together and we went to Palau. When you travel abroad together for the first time, you become sensitive. – You get into a fight often. / – I see. You are not used to the new environment. – Right. / – So… It’s like you’re writing a novel. That’s just how he is. – All right. So? / – We will consider that. – This is how I tell my story. / – Go ahead. We fought a lot. We didn’t even talk. – It was so frustrating. / – I know that. We weren’t talking, but we ate breakfast together. You had to follow the schedule. Anyway, we rode a boat for one and a half hour to get to the diving point. Water was splashing, but we didn’t talk. The other couples were busy covering each other. And my girlfriend had a runaway slave’s hair. Her hair was flying like crazy, but I just sat there. Her hair was flying everywhere, but I just sat there and didn’t move. After the hour and a half, we arrived at the point. And we went into the water. We were still not talking. We went inside a cave 38m below sea level. The instructor told me to hold her hand, but I kept refusing. We were fighting after all. I let go of her hand immediately after he put my hand on hers. – She got upset. / – Underwater… – What could she do? / – She was wearing a respirator. (She spoke while wearing a respirator.) (But he could read her lips very clearly.) She was wearing a respirator. We were underwater. That’s crazy. (Her anger came with the tidal current.) Bubbles formed whenever she talked, – but I understood her. / – Of course. – I could understand her. / – She cursed at you. – She cursed at you. / – She did it in the water. – There was no sound. / – But I could tell. I could read the soundwaves. Yoonhee is really cracking up. It’s really fun. – We had a fight, though. / – It’s fun.
