Does anyone know where we are? (Where is this place?) It’s very… – Even at a glance… / – Right? Isn’t it nice? This town is called Bushwick. It’s closer to the center from Williamsburg. Yes. This is also Brooklyn. There are a lot of artists in Williamsburg. But now, since that place is hip and popular, the real estate price is rising. The real estate price is rising everywhere. So the young artists are moving to here in Bushwick. – Nowadays? / – Yes. – It even sounds cool. Bushwick. / – Bushwick. Bushwick. (The mecca of graffiti) (The hippest outdoor art gallery) (In New York) (It’s a rising art street in Brooklyn) Bushwick became famous for graffiti… This was originally a high crime area. (Bushwick used to be high crime-ridden) There was a man who lived here, and his father passed away in an unfortunate accident. So, to change the atmosphere of this neighborhood, he drew some of it himself, and he also asked other artists all over the world. “Help me change this violent atmosphere.” And artists all around the world responded. They came over to draw it all. Isn’t that amazing? – For free? / – Yes. The movement grew bigger and bigger and created this street. (The story behind the Bushwick’s art street) When we think of graffiti, we expect something provocative and suggestive. But you can’t find any of that here. It started with a different cause in the first place. All the works are about peace, animals and equality. That’s what they symbolize. There’s nothing violent. Many tourists are visiting from all over the world. – Hello. Welcome. / – Hi. (A mysterious man says hi) My name is Jeff. (Producer Jung wasn’t paying attention) Wait. Oh, Okay. Do you know him? My name is Hyounsoo. Very nice to meet you. Do you know him? – Hello. / – Nice to meet you. – Nice meeting you. / – Hello. – Who is he? / – Jeff. – I’m surprised. / – Yes. My name is Jeff. Yes, Jeff. I am the guide for the graffiti tour. – Yes. / – Nice to meet you. Very nice to meet you. (A graffiti tour all of a sudden?) It’s the graffiti art tour. I booked a small group for an insightful tour. (Producer Jung booked a tour) We’re going to be conducting a tour of the graffiti, street art here. And I’m going to show you an artwork that’s very interesting, which is over here. If you’ll come with me. Let’s get it. Did you understand? – You all understood. / – Yes. – He makes it easy to understand. / – Yes. Can you summarize what he said? (How Hyounsoo feels is how Haein feels) I’ll show you something. Check this out. It’s awesome. This artist, Phetus, he likes to make monster faces that have different expressions. (“Gnarly Green Gate” by Phetus) There is no plan. He’ll begin to paint and decide. “Okay. Here is happy. Here is weird. And here is sad.” Whatever he feels, this is what he’ll make. (He expresses the emotions he felt while working) By Phetus again. – It’s the same person, right? / – Yes. – It’s the same artist. / – The monster faces. Yes, I can tell. This is cute. His name is Espartaco. Espartaco. (Artist Espartaco) He likes to make a character, which looks like a person. This represents “people.” In their most basic form. There is some like a language. Also like a heartbeat. So this represents life. And also communication. People speaking. And then they’re stones. This represents the earth. Ground. That’s why also he’s putting it on the floor. – Has a lot of meaning. / – Yes. He’s putting his own experience and also he wants to inspire other people, especially children. Children would like this graffiti. Yes. (Adults also like it) Okay. This is one of the most famous street artists in the world. His name is Space Invader like the game. – You know this game? / – Yes, I know. If you’re a fan of Space Invader, then you download the app. I’ll show you. – What is that? / – This is like “Pokemon.” That you’re searching for the artworks. So when you see the artwork, you’ll score points. If it’s the first time, they’ll go… And you’ll score points. That’s interesting. On his website, it’s called the “World Invasion Map.” So it shows all of the places. (Space Invader’s artworks in the world) (France) (Hong Kong) (London) (Tanzania) (Brooklyn Bridge, New York) We want to take a look if we have one. Yes, we do have one. There’s one in Korea too. – It’s in Daejeon. / – In Daejeon. So, there are 23 artworks. (He has 23 artworks in Daejeon) – It’s fun. / – It’s fun. So I can score points by taking a picture? Let’s try. (Scoring points) Take a picture of that. (He’s like a country boy) (Eyes glittering) (Music playing) (You’ve earned 100 points) – 100 points. / – 100 points. You get points when you find those spots and take a picture of it. It’s like completing an illustrated book. In Korea… There are 23 spots in Daejeon. – An illustrated book. / – This is fun. – I know. / – Yes. There’s art which people… They have not asked permission. They’ve just come and they’ve done it. That’s called “bombing.” When it’s not allowed. But it’s going to have to be very small and fast because the police will try to take you to jail. So like over here. Done very quickly. Including the bird, because this is made out of paper. First, they take the paper and draw. – Yes. / – And then they go and attach it. (It’s attached quickly) (The traces of paper) It may take a long time to prepare it. But you can attach it very quickly. Like 30 minutes. So that’s the bombing. (This is a bombing piece of work) Even this is bombing? Yes. This is a guarantee of bombing because you’re not allowed to put on the floor. (I see) This must be bombing, right? (He keeps finding bombing pieces) It should be bombing because it’s on the ground. The artist who made that, he had permission to paint the wall, then he decided he’ll also do a bombing on the floor. (Bombing is a thrilling deviation) – He used the pipe. / – Yes. As if it’s from there. (It’s interesting) It’s different when you actually know about it. – Right? / – Yes. If he didn’t explain it, we would’ve just passed it. (That’s the fun part of the graffiti tour) This is cool too. I guess we’re just passing this one. (He passes without explaining) Jeff. Can you explain to us this work? – This one? This? / – Yes. This is a graffiti piece. So with graffiti, the artist is writing their name. You could do it bigger with more colors and more detail. (Understood) (Name or letter graffiti is common) (Found at boundless locations) (Sometimes it’s fancy, sometimes it’s simple) (It’s a unique signature from all kinds of artists) You two take a picture. (Will the master of romance strike a cool pose?) (Okay, I got it) (Hip-hop) Are you Spider-Man? (He learned how to be hip on TV) – Like this? / – Alright. (Lifting his left leg with his left hand) In 1, 2, 3. (The assistant directors strike a pose this time) (Keeping his swagger on even when he takes a photo) (He planned for this hip pose) (Lowering it casually) I’m trying so hard to look cool. – Goodness. / – Gosh. (But he still keeps posing for the camera) (A polite hipster) I tried to look cool, but what if I look funny? (I’m dead serious) I feel like I’m getting a tour in a museum with a tour guide. It’s fascinating to find out the meaning behind each piece. You know what? I think you definitely blend in better here. – Why is that? / – It’s the color of your outfit. The color reminds you of graffiti. My outfit looks like an army uniform. Army. Army. (Haein’s outfit looks like an army uniform) Hi. How are you doing? Hi. (Santa and his friends show up all of a sudden) What are you guys doing? – We’re filming a music video. / – A music video? We’re actually filming a Korean TV show. – Cool. / – Really? What kind of music? – Pop music. / – Pop music? Do you know K-pop? – Yes. / – A little bit. – Really? / – Really? Everyone knows BTS. They’re huge. – Yes. / – They are huge. (This guy in an army outfit feels proud) – Thank you so much… / – Do you have any questions? Is that real gold? Is that real gold? Say that again? Real gold? – Do you want to wear it? / – Yes. – Yes. / – Yes. It looks pretty good. – Nice. / – Yes! (Must’ve had private lessons on how to blend in) (Like) Take a photo. I’ll take a photo of you. You look great. You don’t look like an outsider. Thanks a lot. This is my… (They follow each other on social media) Yes, follow that. (He made friends with 5 New Yorkers in 2 minutes) (Hyounsoo, keep being the popular kid) It was really nice meeting you. We have to go now. – Nice to meet you. / – Nice to meet you. (I’ll direct message you) – Have a nice day. / – Bye. We ran into young artists. – I can feel their passion. / – Yes. – They seemed free. / – I can feel their passion. Okay. There is one final artwork to view. (The last artwork of the graffiti tour) Now, does anybody know who this is? – Biggie. / – Biggie. – The Notorious B.I.G. / – The Notorious B.I.G. – Very good. / – Hip-hop. (The greatest rapper ranked no. 1 by the Billboards) (The Notorious B.I.G., also known as Biggie) This is a photorealistic picture. They’ve sprayed it and it looks like a real face. Now, the artist who made this took seven hours to complete this. (The artist only finished it in 7 hours) – It was done in six hours? / – Is that fast or slow? – That is very fast. / – Very fast. – No way. / – Now… When you’re making a realistic artwork, it needs to be three-dimensional. And an important aspect of this is the lighting. So you see the rapper’s face. The cheek. It’s very bright. – It’s a reflection of light. / – Right. There’s a trick. You see the background. It’s a white color. The same color here is the shirt. And then, you see white spots here, here, and there. It’s the same. Right? You should look through the phone. You see the background is white. You see the shirt is also white. But look over here. That’s not white. (Where?) That’s the lighting and the reflection. – Do you see? / – Yes. So it is a trick. (It’s the same white color with the naked eye) It does not look white. It looks like a reflection and a shine. It looks like something that is not real. (Fascinated) It’s a painting, but to us, it looks three-dimensional. – Illusion. / – Illusion. It means that the artist did a good job in making it look extremely real. Amazing. Okay. Thank you very much for coming to the tour. – Thank you. Nice to meet you. / – Thank you. – Very nice to meet you. / – Yes. Thank you so much. – Okay. Goodbye. / – Take it easy. Bye. (They bid their farewells very easily) He showed up out of nowhere. And he really left. – And he disappeared in a flash. / – Bye, Jeff. Jeff. Bye. Goodbye. (It was nice meeting you) Seriously. I really thought that he was a docent at the museum. The person who explains artworks at art galleries. I feel like I saw an art exhibition. Yes, it was really fun. I bet a lot of people would love it. (It was a good call to have booked the tour) Now, we have the highlight of Brooklyn left. I’m already smiling as I speak. All of a sudden, you look so happy. Actually… Goodness. Okay. – He’s so simple. / – It’s… – The Brooklyn Brewery. / – Brewery. Alright. Let’s head over to the brewery. Let’s go. (A hip ending that even Bushwick will approve) – Is it that way? / – Let’s go. Let’s go. (Learned the wrong hip-hop gestures) – Let’s go. / – Let’s go now. (Feeling shy) (Heading to the Brooklyn Brewery) (On their way to drink beer) (Do you want a glass of beer?) (They are excited at the thought of drinking beer) (His lips are getting dry) How many glasses will you drink there? (Look at this guy) I’m not sure. What about you? Two glasses? – What? / – Two glasses? – About 4 glasses? / – About 4 glasses? About 4 glasses? I’ll drink about 4 glasses. (On his way with his hands clasped to drink beer) (Is it true that Producer Jung loves beer?) I love beer. I found a lot of good breweries in New York. I want to end each day with a glass of beer. The viewers will see you with beer and the Statue of Liberty on repeat, right? I think we’ll keep showing alcohol. Anyway, the viewers… The show will air at night, not in the morning. So they can have a beer while watching our show. We can end our day together. That’s what I have in mind. I’m not sure if it will work. (That’s how he began to have one beer every night) (The beer splashed on his face) (Smiling in front of beer) I’ll get a good night’s sleep. (His 1st beer on his 1st day) (His 2nd beer on his 2nd day) (His 3rd beer on his 3rd day) (His 4th beer on his 4th day) (This isn’t beer, this is honey) (He drank beer every single day) We’ve arrived. – Is this the place? / – We’re here. – Isn’t this fancy? / – My gosh. (Peeking in) (This place) (Serves local beer that the New Yorkers love) (Brooklyn Brewery, a sacred place to beer-lovers) (This famous brewery in Brooklyn opened up in 1996) (You can enjoy unique and fresh local beers here) (You can have a brewery tour and taste their beer) (It’s double the fun) (New York’s no. 1 craft beer) (The pride of New Yorkers, Brooklyn Brewery) (American author, John Steinbeck) (A poet wrote this after falling in love with their beer) (A new world with various types of beer) – Brooklyn Brewery. / – Brewery. – Brewery. / – Brewery. – Let’s go inside. / – Let’s go drink. – My gosh. / – Let’s hurry inside. I just need to see the IDs, guys. – Yes, sure. / – Yes, sure. We only got passports. No problem. Yes. Thank you. (Confident) – Enjoy. / – Thanks a lot. – Take it easy. / – Have a nice day. You too. Thank you. Smell it. (They smell the unique scent of beer as they walk in) It smells like steamed corns. Right. – You know that savory smell? / – Yes. (To him, it’s so savory) It’s savory. (There’s a huge brewing machine at the entrance) Wow. Can you take a photo of me quickly? It’s like I’m in a tourist spot from the movies. (Dashing away) (A photo of a successful beer-lover) (The beer here is all mine!) – For a tour. / – Great. Yes, we have free tours every weekend. What time do you guys have the tour? I’ve got one available right now. Right now? That’s perfect. We can go on the tour now. (They head out to look around the brewery) (Rachel, in charge of the tours at the brewery) – We’re going to follow you, right? / – Follow me. Yes. (She’s holding a glass of beer instead of water) – Alright. / – We can just follow her. Welcome to Brooklyn Brewery. – She’s so free-spirited. / – She’s going to guide us? She can work while drinking beer. – She’s drinking now? / – She can drink and work here. – This is my dream job. / – Yes, mine too. (When they get thirsty, they drink beer) (Gosh, this is why I work) (Drinking with his customers) (This is the paradise of beer) (Brewery tour) So this is a factory. So we just want to be careful because they are not brewing right now. (To Producer Jung, the brewery is a place of wonders) This is fascinating. It’s my first time here. (Passing by the huge brewing machine) (At a corner of the brewery) (This is where Brooklyn Lager is produced) Be careful. If you touch it, it’s hot. Be careful. (Microphone for the tour) So let me introduce you to our brewhouse. We brew in this room Monday through Friday, 24 hours a day. (Producer Jung has become a country boy again) You guys are big beer drinkers? – Do you like beer? / – Yes. There are 4 main ingredients. Do you know one of them? – Barley. / – Barley. Barley. That’s like number one. You guys basically just made beer. Yes. – What’s the second one? / – Yes. – Time. / – Time. Time? Yes. That’s the fifth ingredient. – Yes. / – Yes. – Hops. / – Hops. Hops? That’s great. Yes. (You guys are great!) I can tell you the other two if you’re not sure. – Water. / – Water. I knew you were going to get water. And then the fourth one is yeast. – Yeast. / – Yes. – They need to ferment it. / – So… (Let’s sum it up) (The 4 main ingredients for beer) (Water, barley, hops and yeast) So starting with water. We’re going to fill up the mash tun with water. We’re going to keep that water. (It’s a bucket used to make wort, the key ingredient) Basically, we’re going to steep the grains so that we remove sugar and starch. Well, starch converts into sugar. We get the color and flavor from that grain. Do you see the three canisters? There are three canisters. When we move our wort into the brew kettle, we start to boil the wort. (Add hop to add the bitter flavor and aroma) During the fermentation process, what happens is yeast eats sugar and produces the by-products of carbon dioxide. (And there you have the beer) Any questions in this room before we go on? (He gathers his energy and asks a question) One year… How… (What is he trying to say?) Supply… Ask her in Korean. Talk to her in Korean. I want to know how much beer they produce in a year. Yes, so we made what’s called 100,000 barrels. (1 barrel of beer contains about 36 liters) (So 100,000 barrels are equivalent) (To 3.6 million liters and 720 500cc-glasses) (The beer bottles are packaged here as well) They get sanitized, get filled and sent out into the city to head out to bars and to fill our own bar here. So you’re saying the guy who designed “I-Love-New-York” T-shirts. – He’s the same person who made the logo. / – Yes. (Everything intrigues him) – Thank you so much for everything. / – Thank you. It was a really nice tour. – We learned a lot. / – Good. Thank you. Now, we’re going to go back to the bar and drink. Feel free to take pictures. Have a good time. – Thank you. / – Get some beer. – Yes. Thank you so much. / – Thank you. Really cool. Thank you guys. Alright. 1, 2, 3. Alright. – Thanks a lot. / – Here you go. Yes, sure. (Three beer-lovers were here) I can definitely feel that their pride in beer is amazing. I felt that. (It’s crowded as it is a popular place) No matter when you come, it’s always fun here. Shouldn’t we get a table first? (Why is she so excited?) (Suddenly hugging everyone) (Bye) She just hugged us because she’s in a good mood. We need to get a table first. – We should. / – Right. (When you turn to the left from the brewing machine) (You can stand or sit down while drinking your beer) (You can also bring your own snacks) (As long as they follow the rules, dogs can enter too) (They serve pretty good beer here) (Their beer is good?) (Let me try it) (Downing the no. 1 New York local beer) (The flavor is fresh like crazy) (A list of beers filled up the wall) (There are over 20 kinds of beers) (And among them, the most famous one is) (Brooklyn Lager, their signature beer) (The champion of a beer competition in 2018) (Brooklyn Lager) (Let’s taste fresh beer) (Pondering over the menu) (Four kinds of original beers) (Four kinds of limited-edition beers) – Let’s have a taste first. / – Yes. (Confident Hyounsoo is here to order) Hi. Nice to meet you. (You’re doing well, Hyounsoo) OG Flight. Everything on OG Flight. All of them? One of each? Did you see that? (Please serve me beer quickly) (From original beers to seasonal beers) (They are finally here!) – Can you carry them? / – There’s a table. Let’s go inside. (Can’t spill them) Take your time. (Hehe) (I have to take a photo of this) – Alright. / – Shall we start drinking? – Let me try it. / – He’s been waiting for this. (Everyone, it’s time) American beer. I’m going to drink beer at the Brooklyn Brewery. I’ll have a taste. Alright. Let’s drink. – Let me drink it. / – Let’s drink it. (His cheeks are rising up) We’ll finish a glass in one gulp. Hyounsoo, you should choose one. (Beer-lover Haein’s first sip of Brooklyn Beer) (How will it taste?) (Everyone focuses on him) I love beer. (I’m a beer-sommelier) I can’t lose out as a beer-lover. (I’ll focus on my taste buds) (How is it, Producer Jung?) (Savoring) (This is an interesting one) (Haein, say something) (He silently tries another one) (They are like judges at a beer competition) (He smells it and tastes it) (The beer-sommelier doesn’t talk) (He only rolls his eyes) The flavor and scent are unique. (He just gets the foam on his lips) (How does the beer taste?) (Pondering) – This tastes like oysters. / – Oysters? (Is it the oysters again?) (Oysters? Beer?) It tastes like oysters? It’s citrusy. (Oh, tangerines, not oysters) (The sour ale tastes like grapefruit and tangerine) (Which one is Producer Jung’s favorite?) (Deliberating) – This is hard. / – Is it? Actually, I’ve decided on mine. You just need to tell us yours. (He finally decides after long deliberation) (I choose you) (Producer Jung picks the Brooklyn Lager) This is number one for you? Because we’re drinking at the brewery… We also had this beer yesterday. (They had a taste of Brooklyn Lager the night before) I don’t think the ambiance affects the flavor. So this beer is just good? Yes, it’s better. And it tastes a bit different. (The original flavor you can only taste at the brewery) (Champions are indeed different) Haein. Half of our trip in New York is over now. What do you think about this trip? Overall. – All of a sudden? / – Yes. Seriously? Hyounsoo, can you repeat that? What did you say? He’s making a weird face. (Actually, here’s a thing about Hyounsoo) (He kept sipping on beer by himself) (As a result, he’s drunk) (When he gets drunk, he gets overly sentimental) Well, I asked you that because… There were many unexpected moments where I found myself being happy with you guys. Unexpected moments? Yes. So for example, when we were hanging out together… There were times when I felt a sense of belonging. (Haein understands him and listens to him) It wasn’t anything grand. There were small moments that forged a strong sense of belonging. So I was really happy with that. I really liked hanging out with you guys. I think our remaining trip… (Choking up with Haein) I think it’ll get better. (Comforting the youngest) You said that out of the blue. I’m sure this crossed Hyounsoo’s mind. And it definitely crossed my mind. I have a question. (She joins them smoothly) – Yes. / – Who are you guys? (Actually, she’s been watching them all this time) (Who are they?) (Curious) (In the end, she sets out to ask them herself) – I have a question. / – Yes. Who are you guys? We’re actors from Korea. – Actors from Korea? / – Yes. How do you like New York? Very nice. – Yes? / – Yes. (A typical scene you can spot at a bar in the U.S.) I’m Skyler. It’s nice to meet you. – I’m Hyounsoo. / – Say that again? – Hyounsoo. / – Skyler. – She has a cool name. / – Yes. (Two popular kids in New York) – Hyounsoo? / – Yes. – Nice to meet you. / – Nice to meet you too. She looks like a model. My name is Haein. Haein. – Haein. / – Yes. – Skyler. / – Nice to meet you. I thought you guys were cool-looking, so I wanted to say hi. – Thank you so much. / – Thank you. That’s really nice. Nice of you. – Nice to meet you. / – You have a wonderful night. – Have a great night. / – Okay. You too. – Thank you. / – See you guys. (She says goodbye after getting her answer) Seeing her giving a high-five to Hyounsoo… I think she came here for him. She came for you. She saw your hat. She came for you. (It’s a common misunderstanding men have) These two guys are so funny. She came for Hyounsoo. (She came here for me, dummies) (My gosh, me and my popularity) (Their happy Saturday night together) (Comes to an end) What is it? It’s our sixth day in New York. Today, instead of walking, we’ll drive. I was the division commander’s driver in the army. I was praised a lot. (Feeling proud) He drives so smoothly. So where are we off to? (Looking creepy and scary) (This place only opens on Halloween) We’ll experience this! I’m sure it’s nothing. (No, it’s scary) I’m not scared of ghosts. Hyounsoo was in the marines that even scare away the ghosts. I caught about 47 ghosts. (I must be dreaming now) (Are you crying, Hyounsoo?) I feel a little dizzy.
