Seungjae drops his daddy’s USB into a fish tank!…”I’ll rescue you!” [TROS/2017.08.20]
Children are running at this elementary school. Which family is visiting here? It’s Jiyong and Seungjae. (He knows how to salute.) Long time ago, this used to be dirt. This is the school I used to attend. I have memories of when I was his age. I wanted to share my memories with him. Hello. I’d like to look at a student record. One moment, please. May I look at these graduation albums? This is my graduation album. – Graduation album. / – When you graduate, the daycare will give you one, too. All these children must be old now. (He’s reminiscing the past.) (Grinning) We were in the same class. I was close with him even in middle school. (Who is Jiyong’s close friend?) (Wait, who is this?) (god, the representative idols of the 1990s.) The leading idol members, Hoyoung and Jiyong were from the same class. That’s amazing. (Son Hoyoung, the smile prince) He’s just as cute as he was back then. My picture… I had just woken up from sleep. I wasn’t very happy. Even when he was young, he kept a straight face. (He always has a straight face.) Find me. (Young Jiyong) Let’s see. (He picked someone with confidence.) (Your dad is right here.) Try again. Guess where I am. Look from the start. Where’s Dad? (He scans carefully.) – Is that me? / – This. – Is that me? / – Yes. You got it right. You got it right in just two tries. I was young enough to be your brother here. Is he handsome? Let’s close it now. Let’s close it now. Let’s close it now? Did you study well? Me? I was pretty smart during elementary school. – How well did you do? / – I did very well. Good. (Dad, you’re so boring.) (It’s time to check his student record.) (Serious) Seungjae, come look. I’m surprised, too. This is what the teacher wrote. “He’s brave and very high-spirited.” “He’s confident about everything.” (That sounds familiar.) (He’s cheerful and enthusiastic.) This is what my sixth-grade teacher said. “He’s cheerful with leadership skills.” “He likes to spearhead projects.” It’s similar to what your teacher said. Look at what it says here. “School president for the first semester”. (School president) (Mr. Perfect) Not only is he handsome, he was school president. That’s worth boasting about. Is it that surprising? When I was in elementary, I was very different from how I am now. I realized it again. Let’s go. Wow, it’s hot. – I want to sit here. / – Do you want to sit? – Yes. / – Isn’t it super hot? What are you doing? It’s called hopscotch. They’re leaving. Do you want to try? I’ll show you. You can copy me. (Cameraman Seungjae is at work.) (His jumps are clean.) – Shoot me, okay? / – Okay. (He answered okay, but he’s shooting others.) Seungjae. (He’s having fun playing an old game.) Then you have to pick up the rock, okay? (Jiyong is excited.) Watch me. (Ripping) – What do we do? / – Seungjae. – Gosh. Did his pants rip? / – Can you still see? – Yes. / – Wow, it’s Superman! (It’s The Return of Superman!) (Right now, he’s down-to-earth.) I want to go. Seungjae. (He’s torn up just like his pants.) I didn’t know what to do. My pants… There were so many crew members. (A complete mess) There were a lot of kids, too. I caught an ant. Seungjae, my pants ripped so we should go home. Let’s go play at the playground. Seungjae, let’s go. – Your dad wants to go. / – Come on, let’s go. I have to change. Seungjae, come on. I don’t like you. Bye, guys. My dad’s pants ripped! – Seungjae. / – What’s that? My dad’s pants ripped! He’s driving me crazy. No, we have to go. Come on. Let’s go. Come on. Come on. What’s wrong? I want to play… You should go with your dad. – Seungjae, go with him. / – Let’s go. – Let’s follow him. / – No, no. – Let’s go. See you. / – Bye. Bye, Seungjae. – Come visit again. / – Let’s go. (Will we ever be able to come back?) We have to run to the car, okay? – Okay? / – This… This… (It’s a stationary store.) I have so many hurdles. Seungjae. If you walk to the car, I buy you three. Not three. Why not? I’ll buy you one if you go to the car. (This is my chance!) Are you buying that? Fine. Here. My dad’s pants ripped. (He makes sure everyone knows the news.) Where did it rip? – Back here. / – Back here? You have to run now, okay? – You promised. / – Okay. (Even if he tries hard to hide it,) (it’s pretty obvious.) (Even if a veil covers it) Run. Okay. (I twinkle, it’s obvious) – I’m tired. / – Are you? We’re almost there. (I want to play some more.) (Sorry, Dad.) Hey. Hey. (All he can do is laugh.) Seungjae. (He wants to cover everyone’s eyes today.) Run. Seungjae. (Teasing) (I caught you.) – Let’s hurry. / – Why? – To the car. / – Why? (They’re finally at their car.) – Okay. / – Are we going home? Yes, we’re going home. (We’re sorry we couldn’t protect you.) (He gave up in order to seat his son.) (Poor Jiyong) It’s so hot. Dad, did your pants rip? Yes, they ripped. Why did you run away with my bag? My dad’s pants ripped! (Jiyong had no idea then…) Hey! You punk. (Giggling) Seungjae… – Let’s stay up all night. / – Okay. I can’t sleep because of you. Did something happen to them? What are you doing, Dad? I’m making something. I see. I’ll come back after I pee. – Can you go by yourself? / – Yes. – Really? / – Yes. – I’ll help you. / – It’s okay. Then I’ll come watch. (He gets ready to pee by himself.) Be careful. (Seungjae wants to do things by himself.) Wow, Seungjae. You’re a big boy now. (He’s giving a lot of compliments.) – Aren’t you proud? / – Yes. You must be so proud. (It’s Seungjae’s crawling performance.) (I’m like a turtle) (Here I crawl!) (He’s a big boy now.) Is it night now? Yes, it’s nighttime. (Jiyong is in his working mode.) (Climbing) Watch me. (Dad, watch me.) (He can’t hear Seungjae.) (He’s closing the laptop.) Let go. No, no. (Play with me.) Seungjae. (I’m so upset.) Your nose. What? What’s wrong? What made you sad? (Teary) Go play with your animals. I’ll come play after I finish this. Just this? Yes. Just after this. (Sneaking) Dad, here’s alcohol. That’s garbage. (Have some of your favorite drink.) That’s garbage. Put it back. I can change the color of this. How? I’ll show you magic. Look! I changed the color. What is that? This one looks like alcohol. – Does it look like it? / – Yes. Drink it. No, this is empty. Put it back. Put it back, please. (Crashing) Seungjae. (This is full of things Dad likes.) Dad, drink this. (This won’t do.) I’ll take out the garbage. You shouldn’t play with garbage. (Mad) Where are you going? You’re always angry. Am I always angry? That’s not true. You keep bringing out the garbage. You’re making me throw it out again. – I’ll take these out. / – Okay. (Jiyong goes to take out the trash.) Seungjae, where are you going? You wouldn’t, would you? (He promised to play after he’s done.) (Jiyong’s document is open.) (Let’s see…) (He’s reading the numbers.) (Shall I start working?) (I look just like Dad.) (After a minor hesitation, he’s on a roll.) (Slamming) (The document is being edited.) (There’s a lot to do.) (At that point…) (Jiyong gets a call.) (No way…) – Hello? Hello? / – Yes. Hold on. Isn’t this Mr. Ko’s phone? Yes. Hold on. Is this Seungjae? Hold on. Hello. Hello, Seungjae. Where is your dad? He’s upstairs. Then I’ll call back later. Hold on. – I’ll call back later. / – Hold on. Come visit with yummy food. – Is your dad not back yet? / – No. Tell your dad I’ll call back later, okay? – Okay. Hang up. / – Bye. (What are you doing this time?) (It looks like he wants to put it in his pocket.) (He gives up and returns to work.) (Jiyong has no idea.) (He’s recycling.) (He’s getting rid of the drink bottles.) (He drank a lot of alcohol.) I hope you don’t think of me as a drunk. There are so many. (Here’s another reason to drink.) (Did he finish?) What’s this? (He found a USB.) (You should remove the portable disc safely.) (He removed it unsafely.) I’ll save you. (Where is he going with the USB?) (The fishbowl?) Goodness! No, Seungjae! Are you okay? I’ll save you. Did you think it was a fish? You have to go in the water now. Swim. You have to swim. (You better hurry back.) Hey, Micky. Jiyong, you have to hurry back. – Hello. / – There he is. Where are you going for vacation? I think we’ll have to take different dates this time. (Your vacation just went out the window.) Seungjae. I put the fish in the tank. The fish was always in the tank. I put in a dead fish. What dead fish? Come look. (He’s approaching the horrible scene.) Hey! Did you put this in here? Hey… (He can’t talk from the shock.) Why did you put this in there? – Is this a fish? / – Yes. Is it a fish? What do I do if it doesn’t work? Hold on. (I’ll revive it.) Give it to me. (Please, please, please…) What do I do if it’s broken? I’ll be in trouble. (He shakes it.) (He taps it.) (He looks troubled.) (He can’t believe it.) (Why are you drying the fish?) (The fish is dry now.) What’s this? – Did you touch this? / – Yes. (Oh my gosh!) (Oh my gosh!) (It’s gone.) (He connects the USB with very little hope.) (Nervous) Hold on. Hold on. Let go. (Why is he laughing?) It works. Seungjae, it works. (Korea’s technology is excellent.) The technology is great. Seungjae. (Happy) I answered your phone. Did you answer my phone? What did you say? I told her to bring ice cream. Did you tell her to bring ice cream? – Seungjae. / – Yes? If the people I work with call me, should you answer the phone? – I won’t do it again. / – Good. Seungjae. Let’s say you were working on a puzzle, then I threw the pieces and ran away. – How would you feel? / – Bad. – You would feel bad. / – Yes. This is the same thing. – Don’t do it again. / – Okay. Give me a kiss. I was upset because you scolded me. You were upset because I scolded you? I see. Don’t do that, okay? Gosh, I am exhausted. – I’m going. / – Where are you going? (He escapes.) (Why does the day seem so long today?) (Moving stealthily) (Seungjae found something.) (This is) (what Dad used to clean the house.) (Carefully) My goodness. Seungjae, not again. What are you doing? (Surprised) (I am cleaning your legs.) (You have hair on your legs.) (A hair removal service for the tired dad) Hey! (He punishes Seungjae right away.) Seungjae. (Running away) Should I do the same to you, too? Should I stick it on your eyebrows? Don’t stick it on my eyebrows. I will stick it on your hair. I will stick it on your hair. You won’t stick it on my hair, right? I will. Don’t do that. That won’t do. You should go to bed earlier than me. I will put you to sleep first. Okay? – No. / – Okay? No. Let’s go to sleep, Seungjae. (They play around even when they lie down.) Let’s go to sleep. (Jiyong and Seungjae have a peaceful night.) (Jiyong and Seungjae have a sleepless night.) (Seungjae goes outside.) Seungjae, where are you going? (He picks something up from the living room.) (Approaching) (His shoulders shake from laughing.) (Laughing) I… (Even he finds it hilarious.) I came to stick it on your hair. (Sticking) (Laughing) (My stomach hurts from laughing.) Was it that funny? I will pull out your hair. – Seungjae. / – Yes? Let’s stay up all night today, okay? I’m too apprehensive to go to bed. Let’s stay up all night today, okay?
