Minsoo proposed 3 hours after we first met [Happy Together/2019.06.13]On March 12, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
– These days, June is… / – It’s a happy story. rising as the queen of home shopping. I heard your husband supports you very well. He always gives feedback on my shows. It’s his way of supporting me. “Your apron was nice. The makeup was lovely.” He gives me such feedback. I am very grateful for it. But one day, I was selling nuts. Then he puts the nuts beside him. – And? / – When I eat them, he opens the bag and eats them too. (He eats them too.) That’s… He eats them. I came home one day. I sold honey that day. I went inside the workroom and he was sitting in front of the monitor. He was eating the honey I was selling in front of the monitor. So I asked, “What are you doing?” “It looked so delicious when you ate it.” “So I wanted to eat it with you.” I heard he buys all the products you sell. – He buys them. / – He buys them. I tell him not to worry since I’d buy them. – “Don’t buy them.” / – You’d buy them. “I’ll buy them myself.” – Then I’ll buy them. / – Right. A little later, the producer told me this. “Minsoo bought it again.” “He bought two.” He’s such a supportive husband. – He called them himself. / – Yes. When I explain, I say you don’t have much time left. I say that the deal is only available this time. And that makes him impatient. – He fell for it. / – He gets impatient. He can’t help himself. He has to buy it. It was fun for me. The funniest time was this. She was selling frying pans. She said it was scratch-free. – Right. / – Before the show, they send her the products. Right. – It’s for her to try out. / – Right. She should. If she doesn’t approve it, she doesn’t sell it. – She has to try it. / – She uses it first. – I need to trust him. / – Two to three months early. – She first uses it. / – Yes. In the past, I wasn’t interested in the samples that arrived. But when the show is on, and when the product is shown on TV, I suddenly become very curious. So I went straight to the kitchen – and looked for it. / – He finds it. When she scratches it, it doesn’t peel off. So I try scratching it too. You try it yourself. – Right. / – I scratch it. I use it, and if I like it, I buy it. But she told you so many times not to. I forget what she tells me. How can a husband be more supportive? It was so fun. It means he trusts whatever you sell. But he even appeared on one of the shows. Right. Right. – Did he appear? / – Did you hear? He suddenly… – Was it not planned? / – He suddenly appeared. It was a surprise. You know why I wanted it so badly. (She sees Minsoo.) I couldn’t give up on this. My goodness. My husband came to the studio. I hope he won’t step into the set. My husband came in. I am sorry. – What a surprise. / – He’s causing trouble. – I can’t believe it. / – It… – Have a seat here. / – Focus. Darling, you love grilling steak with this. – I can’t believe this. / – Have a seat. – You grill steak with it. / – Thank you. How lovely is it when you serve this? – I’m here. / – Right. My husband came. I suddenly missed her, so I decided to come. – Oh, dear. / – Thank you. – Oh, dear. / – Darling, go now. – I will leave now. / – I have something to say. It’s nearly all sold out. – Why am I here? / – Hurry and go. Hurry and go. – It’s almost sold out. / – Bye. Thank you. – Yejin, it’s sold out. / – Thank you… – Thank you. / – My goodness. I turned it into a variety show. Did you want to put on a surprise event? No. She had stayed up all night that day. I was watching the show. I was worried. Because she had stayed up all night. I heard her stammering twice. (Only he could tell that she wasn’t feeling well.) I noticed it. I thought she needed to be cheered up. That’s why you went straight to her. How were the sales that day? – It went really well. / – See? But it wasn’t because of him. – It was just a good show. / – It was meant to do well. Fortunately, it still did well. June said this earlier. Minsoo proposed to her just after three hours. (Minsoo proposed to her 3 hours after they met.) Do you know what he said? (I need to propose to you.) (He proposed after just 3 hours.) – Just like that? / – That’s incredible. How did you come to that? I didn’t propose to her just three hours after I met her. It took a week. – A week? / – Yes. You first met at the Miss Korea Beauty Contest. Yes. I was standing behind the curtain. While hearing her voice, I saw her through the curtains. She was 10m away. It was at Sejong Center. The stage is very big there. – She was far away. / – June was. I spotted her. And I just fell for her. – At first sight. / – At that moment I suddenly thought of a song. A song? It was Song Changsik’s “It Is Love”. Who are you To reach the deepest part of my heart And light a candle I went all over looking for her. Since I didn’t know who she was. I met all the directors and producers. I asked who she was. “Who?” “The girl I said hi to.” “How would I know that?” “Right.” “Take out all the applications.” I went through all the applications. – The applications. / – To see the photos. I had to rely solely on my feeling. At the time, people used to wear very thick makeup. – Right. / – It was thick. So I couldn’t remember her face. We were quite far away from each other. – The feeling. / – I looked at the photos. – That’s destiny. / – I relied on my feeling. I couldn’t find her. – There were so many. / – Of course. But one person’s photo was missing. I submitted it late. – That’s incredible. / – I wasn’t meant to go. But I joined at the last minute. – At the last minute. / – I went to Korea. Everyone had a photo. But one application was missing a photo. (Could it be her?) I asked who she was. The producer said she was Miss Canada. I asked who she was. I pestered the producer. He said she was a cool lady. I had a feeling that it was her. No way. A week passed. I wasn’t expecting to meet her, but I met my destiny at a TV station. It was just before she left. – Accidentally? / – Accidentally. Accidentally. On the way out, we ran into each other. The producer said, “She’s Miss Canada.” “It’s her.” It’s like a movie. We’ve only heard her side of the story. – Hearing it from you… / – It’s more lively. So you went through such a process. If you didn’t run into each other that time, would that just have been the end of it? I would’ve thought we weren’t meant to meet. Right. She was from Canada. I didn’t want to be that desperate. – Really? / – That’s how I felt. At that moment, we accidentally ran into each other. To me, it meant a lot. – Right. / – You believe in fate. I do. – So in the end, / – I believe it. it turned out I betrayed my country many times in my past life. “Betrayed”? Not “saved”? (She was a traitor in her past life.) – I learned this recently. / – You were a traitor? People kept saying to him, “He must’ve saved his country in his past life.” I asked him what that meant. After that, I realized that I was the opposite. – You were a traitor. / – I must have betrayed my country thousands of times. – I must’ve. / – Oh, my gosh. I must’ve. That’s why he’s been rewarded. What were you like originally? Did you dream about marriage? – I never did. / – Never? Never. He wasn’t supposed to be married. I know now. He was not meant to get married. But fortunately, it turned out well. I’m actually very meticulous. I’m not the type who makes impulsive decisions. But that’s what I did. From what we’ve just heard, we now know that you didn’t decide it on a whim. I guess I’m also someone that adapts to things. When I first came here, I hated being here. But I’m getting used to it. Of course. (Minsoo’s mouth is unleashed now.) – Nice! / – Really. This is the power of Happy Together. Minsoo was unbelievably popular at the time. When June was here last time, she told us. She told us that it was tough. Here’s an interesting story. When I first came here, I didn’t know he was such a popular man. I had no idea. He did a performance. You performed. It was at MBC, and he was singing live. It was my first time to see his performance. – He sang “Spring Rain”. / – “Spring Rain”. – I was so surprised. / – Why? – Why? / – I think he must’ve taken something strange. – Was he possessed? / – His eyes rolled. – His eyes rolled? / – Yes. He smashed the mic onto the floor. He fell. He was behaving so strangely. I learned that there was such a performance. (Provided by MBC) This part. That’s… Is this a live show? He didn’t sing normally. (It was shocking and terrifying.) (Rolling his eyes) Is it supposed to be like that? “So this is the man.” “This is the man I’ll get married to.” “This is the man.” (Freddie Minsoo Mercury) Performing like that on a public TV network was… The musicians in the back look surprised. (Shouting) My goodness. (He ends it by hitting the mic.) Was that aired? – It was a live show. / – It was a live show. Weren’t I a great artist? – You sang very hard. / – I sure did. He was too into it. Just the fact that I was going to watch him made him that excited. – He got too excited. / – Too excited. It was my first time to see him perform. In fact, I didn’t know him too well. Watching him perform, I realized it wasn’t going to be easy. You realized that while watching that. While watching his performance. I just knew it wasn’t going to be easy. What do you mean by that? – The marriage life? / – He was my fiance. There must’ve been so many sides of him that I don’t know about. – It was just the start. / – You didn’t know him. Right. Our marriage hadn’t even begun. I heard the viewers’ reaction was amazing. There it is. “From 4:30, it looks like he’s got” “a LEGO block inside his shoe.” “This video cured my depression.” – It’s… / – Someone left this comment a year ago. I agree with the first. When you step on a LEGO block, it really hurts. The pain is unbearable. He’s expressing that pain. (He expressed the height of human suffering.) Great. It was my first time seeing it.
