Ways to hide emergency fund [Happy Together/2019.06.13]On March 9, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
Minsoo, you obsess over your wife. I’m sure there is a different reason, but… Gosh, I can’t believe that’s a question! For goodness’ sake. Is it because of allowances? Is it because of allowances? – I hold the money. / – You hold all of it. – I told you that earlier. / – That’s right. He is really smart because he handed over – all the hard work. / – He handed it over. To manage finance, you need to think – and plan. / – It makes your head hurt. – I need to think a lot. / – Right. When I married this man, he had found a leisure sports company for his acquaintance. – For his acquaintance? / – Yes. I didn’t think much of it back then. I was 23 years old, so I didn’t know how society worked. Throughout life, I realized that it was excessive. Since he handed over the purse strings to me, I feel a sense of responsibility. Minsoo, you receive allowances. I heard there is a way you save pocket money. (Sniffling) It’s a miserable story. – We must hear it. / – Tell us a bit. It will be funny. I don’t get any money. All of the money goes to her. (All of the money goes to June.) I never get to see the money. When I signed a contract back in the days, I got wads of cash. – It was like that. / – Did you really get cash? That’s right. I got wads of cash. – They brought cash. / – Yes. They brought a box this big. It was like that. I loved scattering it. Did you scatter money on the street? – I did it in the room. / – You did it in the room. – “Yes!” / – I was startled. (He did it for his own satisfaction.) – I see. / – I was startled. He did it in his room. Now, you get a wire transfer. – Back then, you got cash. / – It was like that. (Not even Jaeseok has experienced it.) I want to go back to the past. (The memories of cash are fresh on his mind.) I began to save up for a secret fund. Let me tell you how I do it. Big Sister sometimes tells me to get groceries. Then… – Big Sister is June. / – That’s right. When Big Sister tells me to do something… Do you run errands, too? – Yes, I do. / – You get the change. That’s right. That’s mine. My goodness. – You collect the change. / – In that case, how much do you usually get? I could go on an errand to Daiso. (An errand to Daiso) – You won’t get much. / – Seriously. I could go on an errand to the market. – I ride a scooter. / – I see. After I get bean sprouts and spinach, I get the change. Then at Daiso… That’s why you always go to buy peanuts. You go to the market to buy peanuts. – Peanuts? / – Peanuts? He goes to buy peanuts. – It’s always peanuts. / – Big Sister gives me ten dollars because I like peanuts. Then I buy only five dollars’ worth. You leave a lot of money for yourself. I just realized it. He left a lot of money for himself. He left half of it. It’s his biggest source of income. I can’t believe I am telling this story! Hold on. How much money do you collect in a month? I get an allowance of 400 dollars a month. How much do you save for your secret fund? About 100 dollars a month. – That’s a lot. / – You know, I feel really proud to keep the secret fund. I can tell you are serious. – You are proud. / – That’s right. Let me tell you where I keep my secret fund. Between the phone and the phone cover… Oh, I shouldn’t talk about this. He thinks I don’t know. I know him like the back of my hand. Did you know about the phone cover? Where does he hide his secret fund? His workroom is in the house. When I clean the workroom, – I see everything. / – I’m getting thirsty. Seeing cash here and there makes me laugh. He keeps it in different places. She should leave the money as it is. – But… / – Right? If I were her, I would put more money. – Seriously. / – Hold on. – How cute was I? / – Hold on. If I were her, – I would put more money. / – I… I would add 10 or 20 dollars. I count the money every day. Do you count it every day? Do you count it every day? (He checks his secret fund every day.) – It’s understandable. / – Stop it! – That’s right. / – I feel miserable now. – What am I saying? / – Sometimes, I would leave out ten dollars on purpose to see what he would do. Even when he passes by it multiple times, he never touches it. It’s fascinating. You don’t touch other people’s money. One time, I was so fascinated that I asked why he doesn’t take it. He said, “It’s not mine.” You treat him like your son. – He is your husband. / – It’s fascinating. Seeing his secret fund made me wonder if he would take that ten dollars. I know why he isn’t interested. When he was little… Were you six years old? – He was six years old. / – Which story is this? Two cents. – I am leaving. / – No, no. I am leaving. (Minsoo suddenly leaves the studio.) She’s sharing all sorts of stories. He is making the producer struggle. Hurry up and come back. Today’s show is all over the place. – Excuse me. / – It’s like a play. It’s like a play at Daehangno. Seriously. When you edit the video, add computer graphics. We can do that. – It won’t be a problem. / – Put him here. We have the technology. Even if Minsoo is there, we can put him here. Is this science fiction? – We’ll edit it out. / – Okay. – I will talk, Minsoo. / – Okay. Yes. This is ridiculous. – We will make it happen. / – Okay. When he was six years old, he knew an older boy in the neighborhood. About four to five children went to his house often. There were two cents on the table. (There were 2 cents on the table.) Minsoo pocketed those two cents. – He pocked it. / – He pocked it. That older boy suddenly went, “Who took my two cents?” He must have been nervous. He must have been nervous. “Confess.” – “No one leaves.” / – “No one leaves.” Minsoo was so scared that he whispered, “I took them.” (I took them.) Isn’t that so cute? The fact he confessed shows the kind of a person my husband is. He still has that innocence. That’s why he didn’t take the ten dollars. That’s why you left out the ten dollars. Between them, Heejeong makes the secret fund. – What? / – Isn’t she in charge? – What is going on? / – You didn’t know? – You didn’t know? / – I really didn’t know. Heejeong, do you keep a secret fund? What is this about? (She can’t even look him in the eye.) – My goodness. / – I guess she feels bad. I love to get a massage. / – I see. I paid for ten sessions and said, “I got more sessions for free.” But actually, I had paid for them. (She had used her secret fund.) You booked ten sessions and said you got ten more. Who would give you that much for free? Are you serious? – It’s in the script. / – Did you really do that? I… There is more. The supplements. – Supplements. / – Yes. I take supplements. – Do you take them alone? / – Do you take them alone? I really like them. Taking supplements starts my day. What kind of supplements do you take? I take multivitamins, omega-three, something that is good for the joints, collagen… You take many supplements. Inner beauty. You take many supplements. It’s more than I know. Changhwan, don’t you take any? When I take supplements like omega-three, I get a stomachache. I can’t take them. You must be glad he doesn’t take any. Why would she be glad? Why would she be glad he doesn’t take collagen? The title of this program is Happy Together. You should let the couples live – happily together. / – Listen. Why do you cause disharmony? Minsoo is annoyed. No one cares about my secret fund. Why do you want to know? This is Happy Together. That’s right. Stop being ridiculous.
