Lee Sang Hwa and Kang Nam’s love story in Jungle.[Happy Together/2019.05.23]On February 10, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
Kangnam, trot gave you your second heyday. How did you begin to sing trot songs? For “MBC Music Festival”, Tae Jinah and I had a collaboration. We did that. Kangnam sang “Love Is Not a Joke” very well. – So Tae Jinah… / – You are Kangnam. – Yes. / – Is it someone else? I sang it very well. After that performance, Tae Jinah said, “We have similar height and voice.” – “You should be my son.” / – Really? I became his son since then. I heard that you take all the profit from the events. Yes. The ratio is ten to zero. (Kangnam takes all the profit.) – My goodness. / – Really? Tae Jinah doesn’t take anything. He treats me like a real son. He really is like a dad to him. – It’s unbelievable. / – You should be – good to him. / – It’s hard to do that. You should give something in return. Tae Jinah always says, “In the future,” “give me as much as you want.” Those words are scarier. Those words are the scariest. “In the future, when you earn a lot…” Joohyun, do those words mean Tae Jinah wants him to actually pay him back? (He thinks for a second.) Of course. (Must you ask?) Right? Right? That slight pause was hilarious. – Joohyun… / – He is hilarious. interpreted it clearly. Tae Jinah wants Kangnam to pay him back. He is like a fortune teller. Seriously. It’s your dream to own a building. – Yes. / – Are you looking to buy? I have built a building. – What? / – You own a building. – Yes. / – Really? You renovated the house you used to live in. I have built a building. Tae Jinah even said he will leave his fortune. He has talked about it since forever ago. When I get married, he will give me 10,000m² of land. – Really? / – Yes, he said that. Why does he like you so much? I am very nice. – What? / – Who is very nice? I heard that he is really good – to Tae Jinah. / – I am very nice. – I see. / – I am really good to him. – Kangnam is like that. / – If that happens, – shouldn’t you live with him after marriage? / – No. Don’t say something so absurd. Doesn’t Eru hate it? Eru loves it because I do what he needs to do. – He is very thankful. / – I know what it’s like. I know what it’s like. The other day, I made Eru wear Tae Jinah’s green jacket. He looked exactly like Tae Jinah. (Anyone would know that they are related.) I keep telling him that he will wear it – for three years. / – Eru could join – the collaboration. / – In the future, we will sing “Love Is Not a Joke”. Kangnam, you are dating Lee Sanghwa. You have been a fan of Lee Sanghwa. – Really? / – I watched the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. Korea, and the rest of the world. That’s when I became a fan. I looked up information and learned that – she is incredible. / – She really is. “The Law of Jungle” came a few months later. – You met her then. / – Yes. Since she is a star, I thought she would have a big ego. She is so down-to-earth and friendly to people. I fell for that side of her. At first, you thought Lee Sanghwa hated you. She sat next to me in the plane. After about two hours, she changed her seat to the back. – She suddenly did that. / – Yes. She changed her seats with Kwak Yoongy. – With Kwak Yoongy? / – Yes. “She must think badly of me.” Did you ask her why she did that? It was because of “Avengers”. I hadn’t seen “Avengers: Age of Ultron”. She got bored while I watched the movie. Lee Sanghwa wanted to talk to someone. You didn’t talk to her. She was on a variety show after a long hiatus, so she wanted to talk, but I just watched movies. – I lacked sense. / – That’s right. I didn’t want to talk to her. You didn’t have feelings for her. – I… / – You felt awkward. Not only that, I wanted to watch “Avengers”. You were a fan. I was a fan, but I really wanted to watch it. Marvel would love that. I really wanted to watch it. “Avengers: Age of Ultron” came before Lee Sanghwa. It was like that back then. I treated her well once we arrived. How did things develop? In “The Law of Jungle”, you didn’t have feelings. – No, I didn’t. / – You were simply… – I was simply a fan. / – a fan. – When did that change? / – Once we came back, a gathering was formed. That’s right. Once we came back, a gathering was formed. We saw each other often and developed feelings for each other. (My goodness.) There was a group chat room. – That’s right. / – In it, she and I were the only celebrities. The rest of the members were the production crew. – The producer and… / – Yes. One time, she lost a card. A staff member had it. Since the staff member was working, we talked to each other. – Then it was one-on-one. / – Yes. That’s when we became close – and developed feelings. / – My goodness. You must have talked to Sanghwa when the relationship became known. What did you talk about? Since she is world-famous, I said I will follow her decision. You said you will do whatever she wants. She isn’t the type to hide anything. “We are going out. Let’s admit it.” Sanghwa always wanted to go public about it. She always wanted to go public about it. “Why would we hide it?” – Yes. / – It suits her character. – Because… / – Sanghwa would do that. – She is straightforward. / – Yes. – She is straightforward. / – “It’s not a sin.” – “Let’s admit it.” / – “It’s not a sin.” We will stop right here about the relationship. Thank you. This show is so nice. There is Part Two. Isn’t this enough? After the commercial, we will only talk – about your relationship. / – Really? – We should sit together. / – I know. We will ask you the five W’s and one H. – All right. / – Thank you.
