Gunhoo reading books and working out? [The Return of Superman/2019.10.20]

It’s a relaxing autumn day. This child is fast asleep. (Breathing hard) I knew it was Gunhoo from the ankles and belly. – He is sleeping so cutely. / – Is that how he sleeps? (Wriggling) I think he is going to wake up. He is wriggling. (He doesn’t want to wake up.) He hasn’t regained consciousness. (I don’t feel like getting up.) I think Gunhoo’s hairstyle is popular these days. – So many kids have the same hair. / – Really? (It’s hard to wake up today.) (Scratching) (Shall I stand up?) (Heave-ho!) He’s awake now. (I am bored. What should I do?) “What should I do today?” (Shall I read the newspaper?) Does he read the newspaper already? (What does it say?) He’s reading the newspaper already. (Concentrating) His outfit and hairstyle go well together. (Is there a job opening?) (Three-year-old Park Gunhoo is looking for a job.) He looks for a job and reads a book for self-improvement. (He reads passionately.) (Which book did Gunhoo choose?) (Baa) It’s a book that makes sounds. (He is studying intently in an edgy way.) (I like this a lot.) (Gunhoo’s self-improvement No. 2) He will have a cup of tea at home. (I will get a barista license.) (I will give you a big drink.) (When you make babyccino,) (it’s important that you don’t let it overflow.) (It smells good.) (Oh, it’s perfect!) (He finishes practicing to become a barista.) (What’s the next activity for self-improvement?) There are many activities for self-improvement. Chairs. What is he going to do? Is he going to sit? – What is he doing? / – Is this fitness training? (He climbs on top of the chair after much effort.) Look at his belly. It’s so cute. That’s abdominal breathing. He turns around. It’s a morning exercise. (Morning exercises with Aciel) (Put your arms up and grab your hair.) (The exercise begins in earnest.) (A full-body exercise is the best.) He must have seen the exercise on “Ask Anything”. (A job hunter needs to be fit.) That’s right. Morning exercises with Aciel. (One, two. One, two.) It’s easy and effective if you do it every day. He must have seen the exercise on “Ask Anything”. (It’s easy.) (Grunting) (Gosh, my legs are weak.) He did a good job. He is exhausted now. He exercised diligently in the morning. It’s Naeun. (What are you doing, Gunhoo?) She should have seen him exercise. (Gosh, I look shabby.) He went up the chair again so that Naeun can see. (I will show you my cool side.) (Naeun is reading.) Please look at Gunhoo when he is exercising. (I am sorry, but I am busy studying.) (Leaving) (The pretty sister who studies hard,) (and the brother with a lot of free time) (My knees, thank you for your hard work.) (I will show her my cool side next time.) Hello. She is talking to her kindergarten teacher. Where are Joonhee and Seohyun? Okay. I want to play with them. I want to eat with them. Joonhee, hello. Seohyun. Hello. Hello, Naeun. Hello, Naeun. – Is there another Naeun? / – I am at a cafe. I called and went over to see you guys because I love you. Okay. Bye. – She’s pretending. / – I thought it was a real phone. Seriously. Will Gunhoo do the same? I thought it was a real phone. Come on. (From now on,) (I will play with this phone.) Hello. – “Hello.” / – He is good. (The line is dead.) (What is this?) Gunhoo thought… – Gunhoo thought Naeun made an actual call. / – Yes. (Why can’t I hear anyone’s voice?) (How did Naeun do it?) He can’t do it now. (Will it work if I wait?) (Please answer the call.) – He is desperate. / – “Why isn’t this working?” (I can’t believe you.) “Why did the phone only work for Naeun?” (Pouting) (Play with me!) Things aren’t going well for Gunhoo this morning. No one saw his exercise. The phone isn’t working. (I am upset.) (I’m lonely because no one would play with me.) (I want to be alone today.) Gunhoo is sullen. Gunhoo, let’s eat snacks. Gunhoo, let’s eat snacks. (What? It’s Naeun!) (I need to stay quiet.) (He suddenly plays hide-and-seek.) Gunhoo, where are you? It turned into hide-and-seek. He isn’t here. He isn’t here. Gunhoo. (Gunhoo isn’t here.) (I caught you.) – I heard a sound. / – She is feigning ignorance. (You can’t find me, right?) Is he in here? No. (He is making a lot of noises so she could find him.) Is he in here? Gunhoo is here! Naeun found him. – She pretends not to see him. / – My goodness. (Let’s do this over.) I found you! (Disheartened) I found you! (I need some time!) I found you! (He is expecting her to open the door again.) I found you! (This is so much fun.) (Hide-and-seek ends now.) I found you, Gunhoo. – They are lovely siblings. / – Gunhoo. Good job. (It was a fun round of hide-and-seek.) – Come. / – Okay. It would be really nice to have a sister like Naeun. (He uses his belly to escape the closet.) My goodness. You came out. They have so much fun. – They have so much fun. / – Gunhoo, Gunhoo. Don’t be startled. (My radish-like ankles, save me.) (Was it Naeun?) – This is why you need two children. / – You! That’s right. (My love, my baby. Here’s a kiss.) She is a dependable sister. Shall we eat ramyeon today? – Yes. / – Let’s eat ramyeon. – Let me boil water. / – Jooho is preparing – a meal again. / – The right amount of water is the key to tasty ramyeon. However, I cook ramyeon in a unique way. What does he mean? Get just enough water to submerge the noodles. Who is he talking to? – Is he talking to himself? / – I have a secret method. It’s nothing special but look forward to it. He is having his own show. I knew he wanted his own show, but I didn’t think he would go this far. Get enough water. (How long will you get water? Wake me when he’s done.) If I have too much water, I can take some out. How many ramyeon will he cook? – Let’s boil this. / – He has enough water – for one ramyeon. / – What would my kids like? It’s a matter of choosing ramyeon with thick or thin noodles. What would my kids like? The production crew shouldn’t let him do this. (- When will he cook? / – He should just order food.) – They’re too easy on him. / – Since I’ll add eggs, I will choose this ramyeon. Since I need to add eggs, I will choose this ramyeon. He doesn’t have enough water to cook two ramyeon. I chose this ramyeon. Before the water boils, I will open the packet so I can add the noodles right away. Is that supposed to be a tip? Everyone does that. Out of 50 million people, 45 million already do that. I… When I win a match, I eat ramyeon the next day. – When I’m abroad. / – Why? It’s a reward. I save it for a week. I eat pasta every day when I go abroad, so… Isn’t that right, Gunhoo? It’s a heartrending story we don’t really need to know. (Dad, what are you making this time?) It’s ramyeon. Once you try it, you will love it. Ramyeon is a new world for children. You are excited, right? Go and play. I wonder what’s special about Jooho’s ramyeon. (After 20 minutes, he finally adds the noodles.) To aerate, break up the noodles carefully. I added the water roughly, but it’s the perfect amount. I have skills. – He’s boasting. / – As you cook the noodles, lift them up like this. (Cool the hot noodles to make them chewy.) Half air and half water. (Half air and half water) (Gunhoo reappears.) Gunhoo, what is it? Are you tired? Gunhoo, the ramyeon looks delicious, right? – I shared a good tip. / – When? – Did I miss the tip? / – Let’s enjoy the food soon, okay? There wasn’t any kind of a tip. I will add the seasoning now. (He adds the seasoning without getting frustrated.) Since I will eat this with the children, I will add one and a half packets of the seasoning. It could be bland, so I will take out some water. – What? / – I will take out some water. What was the point of taking out some seasoning? You are right. For the children, I will break the egg. This is a good tip for the dads. He keeps talking about a good tip. I am a well-prepared dad. – To help children enjoy food… / – Quail eggs. – Dad, are you done? / – Yes, I am. Shall we eat? Why did you add candy? I wanted you to enjoy the food better. I did a good job, right? (Depressed) Ramyeon made with Jooho’s good tips is complete. (The dish grabs their attention.) – Thank you for the food. / – Okay. Try it. Dad and I can use chopsticks really well. – That’s right. / – Give us a big hand! (Good job, Naeun!) Right? – Naeun is eating well. / – She must find it tasty. She is eating with gusto for her dad. – Gunhoo, try it. / – Yes. Why? It smells good, right? Try it. – He won’t eat it. / – This is ramyeon. (Excuse me.) Gunhoo doesn’t hate ramyeon, he just doesn’t like what I make. What about Mama? (At this point, it seems that way.) When you think about it, Gunhoo always refuses to eat what Jooho makes. Does he feel anxious? Does he have a memory of Jooho’s food tasting bad? Maybe that’s it. (Jooho reaches the verdict of his logical suspicion.) I understand why he is upset. – What about Mama? / – It seems that way. What about Mama? Gunhoo eats what Mama makes. Naeun is nice. I like your dishes the most. – Did you hear that? / – Right? You are the best. – Gunhoo doesn’t like spicy food. / – No? Tell me what I should make next time. Something Gunhoo likes. I will help you. – Naeun is the best. / – Will you help me? We should make something that isn’t spicy. Okay. Thanks to the angelic Naeun, – the Park family remains peaceful. / – It’s tasty. (Thanks to Naeun, the Park family remains peaceful.)
