Did you lose 8kg for this film? I lost what I gained for the last film. And shot this film. For the last film, you had to gain weight. Yes. I had to be chubby. – For “Sunset in My Hometown.” / – Right. Wasn’t it hard to gain weight and to lose weight again? – Isn’t it very hard? / – How do you lose 8kg? Gaining weight is just as tough. I love eating. I was really happy when I was gaining weight. – It wasn’t hard. / – It wasn’t. – I was so happy. / – You got a chance to eat snacks. I could just wake up at night and eat ramyeon. You eat ramyeon. I really like ramyeon. And… When I was losing weight, I watched eating shows every night. (She gained comfort by watching eating shows.) You watched them for vicarious satisfaction. – You didn’t eat. / – I cried. “I want to eat it too.” Isn’t it torturing? Isn’t it better to not watch it? When you keep watching it, it feels like you’ve eaten the food. I heard Haein loves to eat too. You look like you would always eat chicken breast. You give that impression. I think you would strictly manage your diet. I love eating. I work out hard to enjoy food. – You are that type. / – Yes. What kind of food do you like? – I like meat. / – Meat. There are pork and beef. What kind of meat do you like? – I prefer pork. / – Pork. (We should get him some pork.) Something fatty like pork belly. When you were younger, you ate a whole box of chocolate pie in one sitting. That was when I was a private in the army. I used to crave for sweet things. – Chocolate pie is the best. / – I ate one box with 500ml of milk. There were about 24 pies in 1 box. Right. You ate all of those? I ate everything in one sitting. (He finished everything in one sitting.) Didn’t you gain weight? I gained a lot of weight. I gained about 12kg. – You were the biggest then. / – Yes. Do you enjoy eating alone? – Yes. I love eating alone. / – Is that right? Do you eat outside? Or do you eat at home? – I go to a barbecue restaurant. / – You love meat. – You go for meat barbecue alone? / – Yes. – You barbecue meat alone? / – Yes. – You put kimchi on the grill too? / – Yes. Eating at a barbecue restaurant alone – is considered tough. / – Right. – It’s tough. / – It is. – I just go to a corner… / – And you eat alone. Yes. These days, there are many restaurants tailored for – those who eat alone. / – There are many restaurants. I heard the lady at the restaurant felt bad for you – and grilled the meat for you. / – Right. – “You came alone again?” / – They usually don’t grill it for you. But she grilled the meat to cheer me up. – She cheered you up. / – She grilled it for you? Yes. She grilled it and cut it for me. They don’t usually do that. How far have you gone with eating alone? I haven’t gone to a buffet yet. – A buffet. / – That’s really not easy. Can you manage to go to a buffet? I want to give it a try. (He’s determined.) The toughest by far is eating alone at a family restaurant. That’s not easy. I wonder what the others are like. Can you go to a restaurant alone, Goeun? I like doing everything alone. But I don’t like eating alone. You don’t like eating alone. It’s better to eat together. – Right. / – She’s cute. She wants to eat different kinds at once. She wants to take other people’s food. – She’d order different dishes. / – Yes. You are starting to relax. (He is adjusting to the variety show.) He’s starting to talk up.
