Yoon hee “He looks so young & cute back then!” [Happy Together/2018.12.27]On February 4, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
Next up is Yoonhee, who is joining as a new host of Happy Together. Let’s take a look at her embarrassing moment. – Do you have one? / – Do you? – You probably don’t. / – I think it’s when I was on this show with Donggun. – Why? / – Back then, I didn’t realize we’d end up together. I said that he was boring and a bit ill-mannered. I felt sorry when we started dating. (Two years ago, they were just colleagues.) – His humor. / – What of it? I don’t find his jokes funny at all. He’s never made me burst out in laughter. Anyway, I find it embarrassing now. I hear you watched it after getting married. We watched a rerun of it. – Really? / – It was embarrassing. I remember what I thought that day. I wondered how they’d pull off being a couple when they didn’t have the chemistry. Yoonhee kept complaining about him and Donggun only had eyes for Cha Inpyo. The chemistry was troubling. Donggun, how did you feel? I found it funny. – Was it all right? / – Yes. That’s all there is to it, then. (Donggun’s fine with it.) We won’t erase it, then. Donggun, what about you? I thought long and hard about this. (Does he have something he wishes to erase?) I have too many. I doubt it. – The fact that I debuted as a singer first… / – Yes, we all know that. Not many know it. (He debuted as a handsome balladeer.) Anyway, I released a dance song in my first album even though I was a balladeer. I remember. Back then, that was the standard. – Many did dance music. / – As a promotion. Lee Jeehoon, who debuted before me, did it. Yes, he did. The same went for Lee Kichan. Although they debuted as balladeers, they also released a dance number. I did that as well, and it’s one of my first embarrassing moments. In order to erase it, we must watch it. – We must take a look. / – Yes. I didn’t know we would do that. (Lee Donggun) When did you release this song? (“Propose” by Lee Donggun) “Propose”. (Lee Donggun) (Young) – He looks cool. / – He looks nice. – He still looks nice. / – He is the same. (He has the same hairstyle.) He looks cool. – How do I look? / – The dance is outdated. – You look cute. / – He still looks cool. You look the same. – Nothing has changed. / – You have the same hairstyle. – He didn’t get old. / – Seriously. It’s like you didn’t age. He brought this video clip to brag. (He brought this video clip to brag.) Have you seen this, Yoonhee? – This is my first time. / – Really? – How long has it been? / – 20 years. – It has been 20 years. / – It’s unbelievable. It has been 20 years. That was 1989. 20 years? (His looks are unchanging.) He has unchanging looks. We think he looks cool in the video clip. Yoonhee, what did you think? He looks really cute. – Right? / – Yes. I will take this video clip with me. (Yoonhee will save it in her hard drive.) Take it. There is no need to cast a spell. Eunwoo, how was that? It made Donggun look cooler. I know. – Is he making fun of me? / – No, he isn’t! Release the song again. – Release the song again. / – It’s a good idea. – You are a good singer. / – That’s right. He looks a bit cold now, but he looks so young and cute back then. – He’s so cute. / – It’s not a bad memory. – Seriously. / – We will skip this. – Yoonhee wants it. / – Give me the video clip. – Forget about it. / – We will give it to you. In a way, Donggun and Eunwoo are taking a similar path. Eunwoo is the face of the 21st century and Donggun was the face of the 20th century. You saw the video clip. – He is very handsome. / – Yes. (He can sing and act.) Both of them are singers-turned-actors. – They sing and act. / – That’s right. Some things have changed, but any advice for him? I think we have many things in common. – You agree. / – Yes. (He agrees without giving advice.) Give him some advice. – Advice? / – Yes. I’m in no position to do that. – Why would you say that? / – I saw him when he was a singer, and I thought that he would do well as an actor. Soon after that, he became a leading actor and the drama received a lot of love. “I knew it.” I had that thought. You don’t have any advice since he is doing well. He is doing very well. (He is a kind and handsome senior actor.) – Thank you. / – All right. – Wonyoung, do you have a bad memory? / – Do you? A director once called me and requested that I make a cameo appearance – in a drama. / – We love these stories. It was out of the blue. A rich man who mistreats a salesman, a passer-by who yells, and a beggar were my options. He asked me to play one of those roles. So out of those options, I chose the beggar. There are senior actors who have played beggars. This became a meme. Son Hyunjoo has played a beggar. – I know this one. / – Park Shinyang too. – It’s from a drama. / – I know this one. Hyunjoo is a senior actor whom I highly respect. – He is famous. / – Yes. I called him. “I am going to play a beggar.” “Please give me your know-how and tips.” He confidently said, “Wonyoung, burn 10 newspapers.” “Newspapers?” – “Don’t use makeup.” / – “Use soot.” “Burn 10 newspapers,” – “take the soot” / – That’s real advice. “and mix it with water.” “Once that’s done, put the mixture on your face” – “to look dirty.” / – That makes it look real. It was a good tip. I went to the set and applied it on my face. I got dressed up and talked with the makeup artist for the details. I had a black plastic bag. (A black plastic bag) I wore wool shoes with a hole. I blackened my teeth. Then I had the shoot. My intention was… I approached the shoot with the mindset of taking it as a meaningful experience. I got advice from a senior actor who’d played a beggar, but Hyunjoo was a beggar who is aware. – Really? / – In the drama, he was a smart beggar who reads the Bible. Shinyang was a beggar – with a past. / – That’s right. Mine was simply a beggar who stole shoes. It wasn’t very meaningful. Compared to the efforts I made, the result seemed a bit lacking. It didn’t even become the talk of the town – before it was forgotten. / – It felt futile. – The effort was in vain. / – I wanted a backstory. Shall we take a look?
