Right! I really liked the running scene It’s got that stereotype Yeongsuk! – When he picked her up… / – Oh, that scene! Hyeyeong! (Right into his arms) – Did you wait long? / – 5 minutes? Really? – Did you see her back bend? / – Yeah And her legs, too Should I salt and pepper this? It’s there (Snap, snap) Do that again! It’s nothing much (Master of grilling) Wouldn’t this be enough? (Sprinkling) (The hands of Chef Sungkyoung) Meat for stew – Wow. / – Smells great What would we do without you? It even tastes great! (Yum) How was this for the soup? Are all soup beef this good? It really is good I could have made chopped steak with this Beef is beef indeed What role in “Farewell My Love” do you think you would be best at? – Me? / – Which role? – I want to try the father’s role. / – The father? Me, too The father? – And you? / – The main character I want to play the landlord I remember her scenes I really want to try it – That’s totally for me. / – It really is! – Can’t forget her. / – Yeah! Remember – The cigarette scene? / – That facial change! Yeah, that sort of dramatic change! Asking her when she’s getting married and all Is he back yet? Aren’t you going to be careful about that? I’m going to have to shut this business down soon Oh, ma’am, I brought you some cigarette (A sudden change) (She’s even about to marry them up anytime now) And there’s that friend of the father – At the bar. / – Yeah That friend he meets at the bar (Supporting actors played a big role in this movie) – “What are you saying?” / – That multi-faced acting By the way How do you reckon he kept in contact with Yeongsin’s mom so well without mobile phones and stuff? (The one who brought the news of Hyeyeong) (How did he know that she was in the rain?) I wished they would get together That sounds possible these days
Fall in love in the process comforting Like a secondary couple! That’s right Which scene did you find to be most touching? Rather than touching It was when she went something like, “I’ll get it stitched soon.” She said she’ll quickly stitch his clothes, and kind of flirted with him The lines sounded a bit sexual This one’s got a hole I’ll stitch it for you soon I’ll be quick I thought the movie was very sexy and bold for it to have been made at the time To add to that, what got me wondering was when she starts to read the letter Her top was pulled up, but she didn’t pull it down again (She stops in the middle of changing her shirt) So in that scene – You can see what she’s wearing… / – Underwear! And after that, she pulls it down, but only a little So, I was thinking “Is that on purpose?” It was really bold for a movie made then Like I said before, movies reflect that period’s politics, economy, society and culture Take the streets of Seoul, for example It’s supposed to take place in a city, but there wasn’t a single skyscraper at the time (Gwanghwamun Plaza in 1960s) (The Government-General Building and) (Seoul Citizen Hall can be seen in the background) It’s all computer graphics these days Remember that boarding house on the hill? – That’s probably Anguk-dong. / – Anguk-dong? Yeah, with all those tile-roofed houses And you mentioned a lot about the straw mat Yeah, on the straw mat, yut board was drawn on it It’s the scene where Yeongsin and the mother – Are in the courtyard. / – When she was sewing On the floor where she was sitting down You don’t see that anymore now What surprised me more was how good Senior Kim Jeonghun was – He was great. / – Just so cute! – He was adorable! / – Little groom! (Once a beloved child actor, Kim Jeonghun) He was the best… Adorable “Little Bridegroom” came after that, and then “Yalkae, a Joker in High School.” He was the best Also, Actor Jin Yuyeong and Actor Lee Seunghyeon Right, Senior Jin Yuyeong! They were really popular at the time in Korea Even I saw that movie. It was so popular Hey, you pay for this today Let’s go I don’t have money Don’t act like a crybaby Fire! – Fire! / – Fire! Fire! Hot! Hot! – Fire! / – It’s burning! Hocheol, I’m really sorry We screened our third movie, today We didn’t talk much about movies before, but “Farewell My Love” got us talking a lot – Yeah, really. / – Really I thought it was going to be boring, but it wasn’t – I was worried. / – It was just a great movie Right It was well made For a foreign movie, “The Wizard of Oz” was Released around the 40s? Or 60s? Somewhere between 50s and 60s That’s still fun, too You can’t really call it computer graphics, but it’s more like a shadow play – Right. / – Yeah So even if you see it now – The effects don’t look lousy. / – And also Most of the scenes were done on a stage, all built (“The Wizard of Oz,” 1939) (A musical movie based on a fictional classical story) (The movie shows the adventure of Dorothy) (Who is carried to magical word by a tornado) (And her struggle to come back home) Another 70s movie would be nice tomorrow Yeah Like, “The Marines Who Never Returned.” Right, Changsuk? Oh, Sir Hwanghae! “The Marines Who Never Returned!” “My Mother and Her Guest!” Oh, that would be a good movie “My Mother and Her Guest…” Come to think of it, Korea’s got – Lots of fun movies. / – I agree Right? Yes, I was surprised that this was a Korean movie I was thinking, “Oh, was this really filmed in Korea?” Tomorrow’s our last day Let’s all do our best! Let’s wrap up Yes, sir! One, two, three – Let’s go! / – Go! (The night deepens with time) (The 4th morning of Small Town Cinema) (Huh? Why is Changsuk outside?) (Changsuk came out early in the morning) I think I’ll be fine. It’s not that cold You’ll catch a cold It’ll get colder (He didn’t want to bother others with his snoring)
(What’s he doing?) (Swish) (I’m not making this sound with my lips) (Sungkyoung is also up) Senior! (Tidying up the place by himself) Get some sleep. You didn’t sleep well I slept well You slept really late, no? – No, I’m fine. / – Sleep in my room I’m fine. It’s alright (Changsuk cleans up the courtyard, too) (Sungkyoung first does the dishes) (A perfect harmony of a senior and a junior) For breakfast, how about Something like fried rice? Do we have rice left? We’ve got a lot of rice There’s a whole pot left (Need to eat up that rice) Shall we make it simple? (A whole pot of rice) – Let’s do that. / – There’s pork – How do you make fried rice? / – With bell peppers! How big should I cut it? I’ll get it ready I’ll do it. You just dice it small and nice (Very serious) Green onions smell nice Mushroom, chop! (There goes mushrooms) – What? / – I dropped mushrooms I kind of dropped a lot Oh, what a waste! It’s alright! My mushrooms! This and meat! (What should I do next?) (Huh?) (Snoring) (Snoring) (Hahaha) I don’t think they’ll get up Just think that breakfast is for us From how they’re snoring Never No breakfast for them There’s no morning for them today (Making a weird noise) (Sungkyoung’s doing her morning stretch) (Calm and peaceful) Only if I had something to grab on to, I would exercise Had there been a bench press, I would exercise Like this Like But I don’t have one I need something to hold on to What for? You know that thing you hold on to? A bench where you can do leg raises? Shall I lend you my ankles? – Sorry? / – Shall I lend you my ankles? Yes! Thank you! (Here come my ankles) – So troublesome. / – Would it work? So troublesome I’ve never done it here – Let’s try. / – Yeah, try it here Hold on here Nice! A little more this way (Rock solid) (Like a pillar) Look at how her legs reach my chest even in this position (Amazing) And then, this (Making that abs) (This kind of feels like…) I’m like her personal coach More strength here! I can’t go up higher That’s good enough I need to! This isn’t about snapping your neck It should be about your abdominal muscles (I’m a little tired) No resting, go! Two more sets? (Two more?) Two more? You can do it! – Let’s go! / – Two sets? You can have fried rice after this One, two! Fried rice! Think about fried rice! Five, six!
(Not easy to have that fried rice) One more! Don’t rest! Now, go, go, go! (No time for rest) Put more power in the abdomen! Work that muscle! (A coach from hell) Always control your mind (Putting on a national team coach character) I can’t! Or else, you’re going to become like me You won’t die Don’t frown, now I can’t! You’re going to get wrinkles on your face instead Can’t do this! (Doing her best until the end) This seems like a nice job – Good. / – Need a little rest Can’t breathe! Can’t! Breathe in (A quick rest) The sky looks so pretty right now I think I’ll take a picture from this angle (She just wants to rest more) It’s so nice! It’s so pretty! The cameraman – Is looking more closely at it than you. / – It’s pretty! Isn’t it? It looks like his neck is about to break I used up all my energy too early Ready? Let’s go! Last set! Let’s get to it! (Let’s go!) (Next week) (Last day of Small Town Romance Cinema) (Danyang trip for Wu-cinema staff members) Changsuk looks really cute! Nice! It’s so nice!
