Which Jongmin is real? Stupid or Genius? [Happy Together/2020.02.06]On February 7, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
I thought Jongmin was really smart. We were going abroad, on the plane, he was talking to a foreign flight attendant in English. – Really? / – He was ordering food. Really? Jongmin must’ve thought I was too far away. He was taking ten minutes to order the food. I thought, “Jongmin was acting stupid all along.” The food came out later. He took a bite and frowned. I asked Jongmin what was wrong. He said, “I didn’t order this.” (What a surprise.) – Jongmin. / – They couldn’t communicate. (It’s hilarious.) – What did he say? / – What did you say? – I was curious. / – What did you say? Whenever I go abroad, I struggle so much. It’s so hard to talk to foreigners. – He seemed fluent. / – He seemed very fluent. – It’s really funny. / – It just took long to talk. Yes. People say Jongmin is an intermittent genius. I am still shocked. I present “Brainiacs Wanted”, you know. – It’s a show featuring geniuses. / – Right. The writers gave them a question on the spot. We told them to solve it. He got the answer in just a second. – I was surprised too. / – Even the people with good academic backgrounds struggle to get one answer. How did you do it so fast? It was like an IQ test. I just moved my hands, and I got the answer. – Actually, / – I was really shocked. there are quite a few anecdotes that prove that he’s a genius. – There are. / – We wonder if he’s a genius. Just yesterday, we were on a history variety show. We had to choose something that didn’t cause the March 1st Movement. He got it right away. But on his show he couldn’t memorize the kings’ names. We want to know who Jongmin really is. – We can’t tell. / – He’s really confusing. If we were to look at it with critical eyes, he could be the monster created by the TV industry. – TV Monster. / – I think you are right. He’s the TV Monster. He’s the monster created by variety shows. He’s the monster created by variety shows. I think that’s Jongmin. Sometimes, he’s actually scary. – Right. / – He’s scary. He’s a genius. He changes according to the program. – Who’s the real you? / – He plays each role. He surely is the celebrity – best suited for the TV industry. / – Right. – Don’t you think so? He’s so funny. / – I agree. People are debating whether he’s a genius or not. He’s taken the Mensa IQ test to check it. – Really? / – Really? – You were curious. / – Did you take the test? I took the test on a show. I was so curious about myself. – The highest score is 156. / – Yes. – It was the Mensa test. / – Even if it’s over 156, – Mensa. / – it says 156. – Even if you get 200. / – It can’t go higher. I took the test. I wondered if ever I was… – You could be a genius. / – People call you a genius. People kept… I didn’t know. I didn’t study much, so I thought I was just an idiot. But people called me a genius. They kept wondering about me. Maybe there was something about me I didn’t know about. There can be something. I wanted to shock people. I took the test very seriously. – I solved every question. / – Meticulously? I didn’t get to solve a few questions at the end. – You didn’t have time. / – I didn’t have time. – You were too serious. / – I didn’t have time. – I didn’t have time. / – I solved everything – and waited. / – And? I waited for the score. I got 100. – That’s high. / – Isn’t that high? What? My IQ was 100. – Your IQ was 100. / – 3 digits. – Isn’t that good? / – He didn’t get everything right. You didn’t get a score of 100. Your IQ was 100. I thought he got a perfect score. – His IQ is 100. / – A dolphin’s IQ is 80. They said my IQ was 100. So I asked how I got 100. The person said you get 100 if you get 100 or lower. (You get 100 if you get 100 or lower.) So it can’t be measured. It can’t measure the IQ higher than 156 and lower than 100. So dolphins and orangutans have an IQ of 100 too. (We all have an IQ of 100.) I got so disappointed in myself. I don’t know if it’s right, but it was the lowest IQ Mensa has ever seen. It’s really funny.
