(Father’s Secret) “Father’s Secret”. What’s his secret? (Jong Kook and his Dad are
packing to move.) They must be moving. (Jong Kook and his Dad are
packing to move.) (Jong Kook is taking a shower.) That’s very strange, isn’t it? Where did it go? What is he missing? Did I leave the white windbreaker
in the car? The white one… (Where did he put it?) Where did I put it? I don’t know where I put… the white windbreaker
I wore yesterday. Did I leave it in the car? (This is the white windbreaker
he wore yesterday.) The windbreaker. (The white windbreaker he wore
all day long yesterday…) How stupid. (is nowhere to be found.) (That’s my precious windbreaker.) (Picking up a book) (He’s going to calm himself down
by reading.) (All he can think about
is his windbreaker.) (He can’t focus in the book.) Where did it go? I don’t know where I put… the white jacket
I was wearing yesterday. – The windbreaker?
– What? The windbreaker. The white one. – Yes. Did I leave it…
– That… – where we were?
– You came in wearing it, right? – I came in wearing it.
– We were holding an umbrella too. – The white one.
– Is it not here? It’s not here. How stupid. This is not what I do. You never lose anything. Where could you have left it? How stupid can I be?
I never lose my things. The windbreaker was here. But I can’t find it. It must be somewhere. He lost the hat and the windbreaker. Let’s go, Dad. – What?
– Let’s go. Let’s go. (Looking around) There it is. My white windbreaker. – My goodness.
– There it is. The hat is there too. That’s where that was. Yes. – Is it there?
– It’s here. – I couldn’t have lost them.
– Right. There’s no way
you could’ve lost them. You never lose things. Right? I don’t have to even
wear the sunscreen on my arms. The windbreaker covers your skin. – It covers my skin.
– He’s gotten happy. (He’s happy.) – This is good.
– It’s really good. It can’t get any better. He became very happy. Yes. I think it made him happier
than the trip made him. Finding the windbreaker. (Jong Kook’s dad.) Shorts are comfortable, aren’t they? – Of course.
– Shorts are comfortable. They’re great when you’re
walking around like this. (They both pulled their socks up
over their ankles.) Pants are uncomfortable. Dad. This is a famous
seafood restaurant. – Sea.
– Yes. It’s famous for seafood. I see. I already ordered
a full course meal. – Did you?
– Yes. Goodness. When you were a kid… (I can’t believe I’m here with you.) But you know what? When I was a kid, I didn’t think
you were thrifty. Because… I didn’t know the good stuff. I thought everyone lived like that
when I was a kid. Using little toilet paper. Using a bucket to pour water
over myself when I showered. You thought that was
what everyone did. I thought that was really cool. Squeezing toothpaste
from the bottom. Putting a piece of paper
on one side of a soap. (Squeezing toothpaste
and putting a paper on a soap) Why did you do that? (Why did you put paper on a soap?) Because it doesn’t feel slippery
that way. I heard you talk so much about… how poor you were, so I thought
we had to live like that. Save water and stuff. There’s no need to waste.
That’s how we should live. – He’s right.
– When you were young, you were really poor. In your house…
A lot of people lived… – at grandma’s place, right?
– Yes. – Everyone lived together.
– How many people? My mother raised her kids
without her husband. (Jong Kook’s grandma had
no husband.) She raised eight children
on her own. – She had eight children.
– Yes. The youngest sibling… died… of starvation. Your youngest sibling? – Yes.
– Really? I had a really… difficult life. (He had a tough period
of spring poverty.) People back in the day had
spring poverty. You can’t imagine what it’s like. He’s right. – Raising eight children…
– I can’t imagine. on her own without a husband. We can’t even imagine. – Right.
– She didn’t have relatives. Dad. Did your youngest sibling
pass away… – when you were young?
– He died young. Let’s not talk about that. Was it that bad? People died of starvation? Whenever my mother had a drink,
she talked about it. Really? (Whenever she drank, she talked
about her youngest child that died.) Actually we… We can’t imagine
people dying of starvation. My generation can’t. Right. (Jong Kook’s dad becomes quiet.) Right. – Goodness.
– Goodness. What’s wrong, Dad? (He wipes away his tears.) Suddenly… He’s thinking back on the hardship. I’ve never
seen you like this before. Seriously. Whenever
I think of your grandmother… – Right.
– I see. (Whenever I think of your grandma,
I feel sad.) Even when you get old,
you miss your parents. That’s right.
He was a very good son. I’ve never seen you cry before. Back in the day… I’m sorry, Dad. (This is why Jong Kook’s dad…) (has always been frugal.) (Jong Kook can finally understand
his dad a little bit.)
