So in your opinion, has your mom always been girly? Yes. She is quite emotional and fragile. When a man in the novel says something cheesy she grabs my hands, starts shaking all over, and screams with joy. I think romance novels are perfect for her. So in your opinion, do you ever think she’s too into the novels? When she stops at a light while driving she reads the novel on her phone from time to time. You read while you’re waiting at the light? In life, you can tell when the lights will change. – In life, yes. / – That’s right. So when the lights are about to change I turn off my phone and start driving again. (It’s still dangerous!) Her eldest daughter seems to be understanding. What does her husband think? I’m very curious. What kind of romance do they share? Hello, sir. Hello. Your wife is into reading romance novels. Are you worried or are you understanding? – I am a bit worried. / – You are? Why did she get into these novels? Did you ever think about that? We had children out of the blue so we were always busy trying to make ends meet. Since I’m an introverted person I don’t talk to my wife much at home. No matter how busy you are you can show your affection at home. Show affection? He doesn’t. She’s upset about that. I acted cute many times after having a drink. But then she would yell, “Come on!” Come on, what? It could mean so many things. She seems to be annoyed by me. Your husband shows his affection when he’s drunk. Why do you yell at him? In novels, men do romantic things like locking hands. Like this? Grabbing a woman around her waist. When he drinks, he nudges me like this. He’s rough? No, he’s not a rough man. You like it rough, huh? (That’s too embarrassing) She’s so girly. He isn’t romantic at all. He just nudges me so I hate it. He just nudges you with no romance? You met when you were young, right? When I was young I didn’t marry him because I was in love. We got married because I got pregnant. You got pregnant because you were in love. (Oh, come on) That’s romance. But when I read novels, couples are quite romantic. They have memories of dating. It’s like a dream I never had. You two didn’t have much time to date. I think that’s why I enjoy novels so much. How did you two meet? That’s none of your business. (I’m sorry…) Don’t try to know too much. Is there something from novels that you like? Something like this. (She’s excited just imagining it) She’s so cute. When a man loves a woman he says, “You’re mine. Don’t go anywhere!” A man being tough and strong. A man proposing with flowers and a ring. He never officially proposed to me. I see. That’s something I dream of. That must’ve become a grudge. I’m a fragile woman and I want someone to protect me. What do you think about that, sir? I feel bad. Don’t be so introverted. She wants something romantic. After talking to him, I can see why she’s like that. You’re so unromantic, sir. Romantic? He’s never been romantic ever in his life. You’re sitting so far apart from your wife. Why don’t you sit closer to her? Let’s say your husband has become cold. Instead of asking, “What soup did you cook today?” he says, “Let’s eat kimchi stew today.” That’s being cold? How would you feel if he does that in real life? – That would be nice. / – Sure. For example, you cooked kimchi stew. You want him to say, “You can have all the meat.” (Thumbs up!) (Taejoon came right out of the novels) You and I like the same type of men. This is what she seems to want. He seems to be 6 to 7 years older than she is. She has wanted a strong, adamant man, but her husband was always soft, delicate and can’t show his feelings. She’s been waiting. Let’s show how you can be the man she’s always wanted. Please, come up to the stage. Come up here, please. (I look forward to it) Let’s make things romantic today. Please come this way, sir. Scenes from her romance novels will appear on that screen over there. It’s from “Not you, but your sister.” “Not you, but your sister”? (You never knew it would come true, right?) I’ll tell you what to do. You will be the male character. You will be the female character, of course. (Man: Yun Seohui!) (A line with so much power!) Yun Seohui. Yun Seohui. While looking at her. Be strong. Yun Seohui. He’s so powerful. (Look at the next line) (Man: I’ve been lenient and you’ve become bold) I’ve been lenient and you’ve become bold. You have to do it over. (No good) Just the first part. (Her fingers are curled up from embarrassment) I’ve been lenient and you’ve become bold. That’s not how you say it. Hey! Yun Seohui! I’ve been lenient and you’ve become bold. Be strong! Show us. We’ll demonstrate. Let’s go up there and demonstrate together. Come this way. I’m Yun Seohui. Hey, Yun Seohui! (He’s even more awkward) That’s not how you do it. Be strong. (Dongyeob demonstrates) Hey, Yun Seohui! Hey, Yun Seohui! It’s not her. I’m sorry. (A shocking twist) It’s not Yun Seohui. – Hey, Yun Seohui! / – Good. I’ve been lenient and you’ve become bold. Oh. Seohui’s eyes dropped to the floor. Did I do something wrong? She seemed confused. Jisan held up her head with his hand. (Trying to get into character) Gradually. You’re supposed to show this look. Pay attention, sir. His lips curled up into a smirk. (What?) (Brrr) (Crazy acting) Listen up, Yun Seohui. He took a few steps toward Seohui. His strong body was just an inch away from Seohui’s body. Go! I don’t care whose daughter you are. Their faces are quite close now. She has the look of fear on her face. Jisan puts his lips… (I can’t believe I’m getting this lucky!) The end. (Yeongja’s romance just ended) How could you! We’ll tell you your lines, sir. Ready. Action. Hey, Yun Seohui! He called out her name in a serious tone. Her dark eyes sparkled. I’ve been lenient and you’ve become bold. What? – You have no fear. / – You have no fear. Seohui’s eyes dropped to the floor. Did I do something wrong? Hold up her head. Slowly. Slowly. (Even the audience is nervous) His lips curled up into a smirk. Curl up your lips. Curl up your lips. He took a few steps toward Seohui. His strong body was just an inch away from Seohui’s body. Get close to her. (He strongly pushes his body against her!) Forget it! I don’t care… I don’t… I don’t care whose daughter you are. Their faces are quite close now. Jisan took his lips closer to her face. His breath felt hot against her. All I care about are your lips! (He ambushes her with a kiss) (He’s quite a strong man!) That was great. (She wipes sweat from her husband) A round of applause for him, please. (Good job) It looked so romantic from our point of view. What did you think? Although he was acting. It was nice. He’s normally quiet and shy. But he was quite different this time. Did he feel like the character from the novel? He grabbed you in the end. It wasn’t that romantic. Could you be more like this now? I would like that, too. You know how I feel. Must I say it out loud? It’s not like that anymore. You must express it. She never got a formal marriage proposal. You’re grateful for her marrying you, right? Why don’t you propose to her in front of all of us today? Do we have flowers ready? (Surprised!) It’s beautiful. Propose like they do in romance novels. You can do it! Be a man and call out her name. Why don’t you stand? Kneel down in front of her. (Nervous) Be a man. An Hyeok! I will always love you. Thank you for raising our children. You will always be mine! I love you. (I love you!) Give her a hug. Kiss her! Kiss her! (Smooch) How did you feel watching your parents today? It was nice. I hope they continue to be like this. Right. She’s a woman before she’s a mom. She wants to be loved and comforted, too. She wants someone to take care of her. Be understanding toward your mom and take care of her as her daughter, too. Mom. Let’s talk for at least an hour a day. I’ll try to be more understanding. All right. I’ll spend an hour a day talking to her. An hour. We’ll talk a lot. Doyeon. Do you think it’s a concern or not? I think he’ll express his love to her more often now so I don’t think it’s a concern anymore. Min Kyunghoon. I don’t think it’s a concern, either. Since mom is also a woman, I tried harder when I was a teenager. I tried not to act like a teenager. I think you should try harder, too. Right. Press the button, please. (What does the audience think?) 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Time’s up. Not many people pressed the button, right? Please show us the result. (“Mom’s romance” / 26 votes) I think things will get better now. Good job.
