Myungsoo “Byul, you have three sons right?” LOL [Happy Together/2018.05.24]On January 17, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
Byul must have a lot of connections. – Do I? / – Yujin is her friend. Is Yujin your best friend? Yes. Yujin and I used to host a radio show together. – Yes. / – We hosted a radio show. Right. You hosted a radio show together. I worked with her for quite a long time. It’s fun now that we are both moms. – It’s fascinating. / – You talk about children. – It’s fascinating. / – We talk about kids. What did you usually talk about in the past? – We talked about food and… / – Thank you. She thanked you. What else did you talk about? You must’ve talked about other things too. You were very surprised. – Who did you eat it with? / – She wasn’t married. – Is that right? / – Of course. Yujin was very surprised. It happened in the past. Byul had babies first. – Right. / – She must’ve helped you. – She’s so good at it. / – I did my best to raise them. She did her very best. – I heard she’s amazing. / – She’s an amazing mom. She’s really great. It’s not easy raising two sons. Including Haha, you have three sons. It’s like having three sons. You cannot not yell. – It just happens. / – She doesn’t yell. She calmly explains everything to the children. No. I yell a lot. – She saw the good sides. / – I yell a lot. – You can’t not yell. / – Right. I read books and online articles about how to talk to children. “Right. It must be hard on you.” There’s that. – That’s the one. / – It doesn’t work. – “I see.” / – I tried all kinds of things. – Is that just in theory? / – It sure is. – Really? / – I learned it by reading. – That’s how you do it. / – I did that. When kids start talking, – they talk like adults. / – Right. “I hate you, Mom. You’re bad, Mom.” – “I was, wasn’t I?” / – That’s what you should say. In my head, I want to say, “I made you sad.” “And you hate me.” I should say that. But I end up saying, “I hate you too.” Right away… – I become very childish. / – “I hate you too.” – And… / – “I gave birth to you.” “I was in pain for 10 months.” After saying those things, kids forget when they turn around. But the parents don’t forget it. – It lasts long. / – You don’t forget it. – My goodness. / – We had a fight, and I was sitting quietly. My son came up to me as if nothing happened… and said, “Mom.” I was supposed to act as if nothing happened. But I was still upset. I said, “You said you hated me.” “Why talk to me?” I was being all childish. – It’s… / – I do that. – I feel so sad. / – I… I completely sympathize with you. What do you have to say about that, Yujin? Dream is such a good boy. He came to my house a few days ago. When Byul was eating something, Dream became playful, and Byul spilled her food. As soon as it happened, he said, “I’m sorry, Mom.” – Isn’t he very young? / – Dream said that? “Mom, Mom, I’m sorry.” “Mom, Mom, I’m sorry.” (Is he Cinderella?) What did he do so wrong? – I… / – “Mom.” – That’s not it. / – That’s what kids do. – As soon as my spoon dropped… / – That’s not easy. We weren’t at our home. – You were guests. / – We were guests. I didn’t scold him or anything. When he looked at me, I said, “It’s okay.” And he said, “I’m sorry.” – “I’m sorry.” / – That scared him more. – Did he… / – “What’s wrong with Mom?” I did this. – Did you punish him? / – It’s not that. – He… / – One, two. He did that not because of the spilled food. Kids spill food. When kids eat, they get very distracted. They play and walk around while eating. – You can’t do that in our house. / – Children know when their mother is in bad mood. I have a baptismal name that my mother calls me. – “Sebastian”. / – It doesn’t suit him. – I am Sebastian. / – Really? When she calls my name softly, it means I haven’t done anything wrong. When she says, “Sebastian!” it means I am doing something wrong. When I fix my behavior, she says, “Yes, Sebastian.” Sebastian. – Yes? / – Did you feel it? – Should I talk less? / – Yes. I envy Yujin a lot. Your husband is Chef Baek. He must cook a lot. Many people are jealous of you for that. You probably don’t worry about what to eat every day. – He’s so quick. / – His recipe is foolproof. – Right. / – It’s easy to copy. We always ask each other what to eat today. – Every day is a festival. / – Yes. When I say we have fish, he asks, “Do we have radish?” If I say yes, he says he will cook a fish dish. That’s what we always talk about. You must be very happy. – Yes. / – I am so jealous. Do you not get delivery food? We make jjajangmyeon at home. You make jjajangmyeon at home? That’s crazy. That’s crazy. – You cook jjajangmyeon? / – They have a wok at home. – Really? / – They have a wok stove. – Really. / – They have a wok? – It was my first to see. / – Does he do this? I took photos of it. Her house is like a grocery store. There’s a wall full of sauces from all over the world. – I took photos. / – Sauces from everywhere? They have all kinds of sauces. – How is that possible? / – As we know, Chef Baek studies about food. – Yes. / – I heard he loves it. – I ask him sometimes. / – Ask him what? “Do you like cooking that much?” Even when we’ve decided to eat instant noodles, he gets ideas as the water boils and ends up adding different ingredients. We never eat it as it is. He really loves cooking. I’m sure everything he cooks is good. But what was the best thing he cooked? Whatever I say I’m craving at the moment. – What you’re craving for. / – I want that too. I envy her for that. You get to eat whatever you crave. – My goodness. / – I am curious. Jaeseok and Myungsoo, do you cook at home? I cook seafood kalguksu. I am good at that. When I was on “Family Outing”, I learned how to cook seafood kalguksu. I am good at cooking noodle dishes. Yes. That’s it. – I don’t cook much. / – Is it not store-bought? – Do you make the broth? / – You can’t cheat. But I take a long time. – Yes. / – “Let’s just order food.” She gets tired while waiting. And flour is everywhere. So she usually discourages me from cooking. Your son has a girlfriend who looks like his mom? – Right. / – You mean her looks? He says he wants to marry someone like his mother. – That’s why… / – That’s the best. – He actually met a girl. / – So sons do that. My son… I heard it’s not easy to hear that from your son. – Of course. / – He’s so sweet. Right. When I was with my eldest son, he used to tell me that he sees stars in my eyes. – He told me those things. / – My goodness. I fell so madly in love with him. – That’s so touching. / – Is his girlfriend – really a lot like you? / – He’s got a girlfriend. – I met her once. / – Did you? – How would that feel? / – Is she like you? I was so proud of him. – Were you? / – Yes, but she isn’t his first love. You didn’t have to say it. – I didn’t… / – Why would you… – I am saying this because… / – I think you are bragging about your son too much. He first fell in love in high school. One day, he came home and said, “Mom, there is a girl I really like.” “And I am going to go out with her.” He tells you these things. – We are very open. / – You’re open. I told him to tell us anything. We told him that there’s nothing we can’t hear. But when he told me that he was in love… How did it feel? I felt the earth shaking. – There was an earthquake. / – I… – Really? / – I grabbed the counter. I held on to it and took a deep breath. – Really? / – I did. – Maybe you had anemia. / – It was so difficult. – You were shocked. / – You get shocked. “There are stars in your eyes.” I couldn’t forget that. I thought he was always going to love me. – I’m getting tearful. / – He used to think his mom was beautiful. But suddenly, he saw stars in another woman’s eyes. Right. – It… / – He betrayed you. – He wouldn’t say that. / – Why are you crying? It felt like she took him from me. She took my son’s eyes. She took my son’s heart. It shook me so hard. – Is Byul really crying? / – It was… When I imagined it, I became… – Right? / – Really? – That’s what happens. / – Yujin is emotional too. – We all have sons. / – Right. – Really? / – You know, right? – I know. / – Right? Until then, I thought – I’d buy his girlfriend gifts and / – Right. give her my things. But when he said he was in love with her, I thought, “I am not giving her anything.” – “It’s all mine.” / – “It’s all mine.” This is what happens. I was like that the first time. But now, – I act naturally. / – Now? I am very relaxed. I became relaxed after going through that crisis, but there’s always that. I hear Hyunmoo’s mother is very much shaken too. – She’s his first love. / – “My son was so good to me.” “But he stopped calling me because of her.” She might be lying down while holding on to a sink. Send her a video message. How can she lie down while holding the sink? – That must be tough. / – I know. Yesterday, my son brought me a flower ring. My son said, “Because you’re so pretty,” “I am giving you a flower ring.” He said, “Wear this to your sleep.” He said it was going to – recharge my energy. / – My goodness. That really touched me. He will buy a real ring to his girlfriend. I know. I will… Why would you ruin it? I thought about how I would feel when he gives an actual ring to his girlfriend. I think you need to cherish each moment. I can’t say to him, “But you won’t give me a real ring.” – You can’t. / – That’s when he’ll start acting up. He will say, “I hate you, Mom.” You can’t say, “You’re faking it, aren’t you?” – “You won’t love me.” / – “You lied.” The kid will be hurt. – Right. / – I hear you sometimes get surprised by the news of Minsoo interfering in other people’s business. I hear you nearly dropped the remote when you saw him at Lee Sangmin’s press conference. Wasn’t Minsoo there? – He was. / – Doesn’t that happen only in movies? It wasn’t planned at all. If you remember what he was wearing, he had a head scarf on. He was dressed like a biker. Actually, he is too nosy sometimes. That day, he was riding his bike when he ran into a journalist he knows. When Minsoo asked him what he was doing, he told him about Sangmin’s press conference. “Is that right? Okay. I should go in too.” “I should go in and see Sangmin.” And he attended the conference. And he sat down as soon as he went in. – He sat next to Sangmin. / – So it wasn’t planned. It wasn’t planned. He just barged into that place. – Sangmin must’ve felt… / – It was a serious event. It looks like Minsoo’s press conference. Right? It looks like Sangmin is helping him. People must’ve thought it was a prank show. Minsoo wasn’t dressed for it. It looks like Gyeonggyu is going to come out. He must’ve thought it was a prank. Sangmin was very surprised. Right. (What are you doing here?) He must’ve been thankful. – Right. / – He was thankful, but… He wanted to help Sangmin. – Right. / – He wanted to help. – But poor Sangmin / – He’s a loyal friend. was even more surprised. He couldn’t have stopped him. He couldn’t.
