Jung Haein’s Travel Log I 정해인의 걸어보고서 EP.3 Part.2 [ENG/2020.01.18]


(It was close) That was the fourth try. (Relieved) (He’s nervous) This is intense. – Are you nervous? / – No. What’s taking you so long? Hurry up. (Haein’s agitated) If you score, we tie. (Please, please, please) (This is the sixth try, if he scores, they tie) I won. (He fails) (Haein won, Hyounsoo lost) I won. (He’s so happy that he could fly) (Excited about beating Hyounsoo) I’m going to make him sing when we have dinner. A musical song. (The high-spirited basketball player’s bitter end) (Haein celebrates) (I won) (Night falls) (People enjoy the night of New York in their own ways) (Where is Producer Jung going now?) Mine is on. (Producer Jung starts shooting) (Testing the camera) Let’s go. Let’s get it. I’ll shoot the street. At my eye level. Do you see me? I’m sharing with the viewers how I’m seeing the world at my eye level. It’s exactly at my eye level. That place with bright signs is Times Square. (Times Square) (Good job, Producer Jung) (Stay tuned) It smells like carp bread. Is it a waffle? – It doesn’t seem special. / – That’s it. These are peanuts. It’s really good. – This is what I smelled. / – It’s only $2. Should we get a bag? (This is what smelled like carp bread) Do you have $2? He makes it on the spot. (He’s shooting the menu) There are many kinds, even coconuts. Yeah, so many. (The human jimmy jib) (He doesn’t forget to shoot a close-up) (Let me try) This is what it looks like. It tastes like the peanut snacks from convenience stores in Korea. – In the cylinder can. / – Oh, I know. – Yes. / – That’s sweet and salty. That’s exactly what it tastes like. – It’s sweeter and warm. / – Right. (He loves the New York peanut) We’re on the way to have dinner. The line is so long. That’s crazy. It’s longer than I imagined. (Is this restaurant that amazing?) (We’ll check it out) (This place is hip) We need to make it now. Hello. Hi. (The three guys enter after a long wait) – That table? Okay. / – Yes. Perfect. Beautiful. (It’s packed with customers) (It looks like an ordinary American restaurant) (Welcome) (We’ll give you a great present) (Eyes focused) (He goes up on the table) (A man with pigtails is singing) (Focused) (Experiencing culture shock) (What’s this restaurant that flustered Producer Jung?) (Broadway 42nd Street, the capital of musicals) (This ordinary-looking restaurant has a secret) (Its servers have special talents) (They sing as they work) (Musical actors sing as they work in the restaurant) (It’s the dream stage for aspiring musical actors) (Fascinated) (Let’s experience it in person) (The server with pigtails shows off his singing skills) (He pauses while holding his bag) Thank you. (Encore) Wow. This place is really shocking. I guess those who want to debut in Broadway work here. (That’s correct) (As if nothing happened) (He goes back to work) (These guys) (All dream of performing on Broadway) (You never know when they’ll change) Broadway staff might come. People actually get cast here. But you never know when they’ll come. They might be here now. (That’s what he thinks) (They’re looking for the hidden Broadway staff) (Many Broadway stars actually got cast here) (He still can’t believe it) I can’t place an order because they keep singing. (Another server performs) This is crazy. I can’t focus on the menu. (He’s a server, but also) (Played a major role in “Beauty and the Beast”) (This actor is excellent) (He pauses again while looking at the menu) (A real actor’s small musical performance) (People applaud while having dinner) Thank you. Thank you very much. (Fascinated) It’s amazing. (Thank you, can I get you something on the house?) (Another amazing performance continues) (Producer Jung’s New York Playlist) Alright, guys. I know there’s someone… If you love me, say yeah. If you love me, say yeah. Now get ready for this. I think he loves me. (She picks a customer to join her) (Follow me) (He’s dancing with a spoon) (This is fun) She said enjoy. (The performance was on fire) Thank you. Thank you, Gene. Once her performance was over, she left so nonchalantly. (That’s because she needs to work) It’s a very carefree atmosphere. When I heard that this was a restaurant, I expected something obvious with the stage in the front. But this is completely different. (The reason why this place is so special) (One sings while the other receives the order) (But there’s more) (Wherever they stand becomes the stage) (Wherever they are, they become the lead singer) (They perform close to the audience) (The stage could be anywhere as long as they can sing) (Glancing around) Where is she? (He’s looking for the singer) She’s nowhere we can see. (It’s fun to locate the singer) (I’m here) (Dancing) (She conquers the second floor) (She doesn’t stop singing while getting the bill) (Where is she?) (She sings the high note with the receipt in her hand) (Everyone loves her performance) (She’s the youngest customer) (What’s wrong with you, mom?) (He’s totally engrossed) Are we thinking about four beers? (Nicole is their designated waitress) Cookie monster shake… – And this platter. / – Sure. (He makes the order confidently) Thank you very much. When did you get here? He actually got here three days ago. We just got here yesterday. Nice. How’s it been so far? The thing is that it’s his first time in New York City. – Really? / – First time in New York City. Amazing. We are actors. (He suddenly discloses their professions) – Actor, actor, actor. / – All of you are actors. – Nice meeting you, Nicole. / – Nice meeting you too. I wish I could see your work. “Something in the Rain.” – “Something in the Rain?” / – Yes. “Something in the Rain” and “One Spring Night.” I will look it up. Yes. I will definitely look it up. Amazing. Do you need anything for right now? Or is everyone okay? – When you’re ready, let me know. / – Okay. I think people here can chat with strangers easily. Nicole is up next. (He stands up and applauds) What is it? Nicole is up next. What is it? (Confused) – What is it? / – Take it away, Nicole. – I clapped anyway. / – Good job. Why did you get up? (He’s curious) Look over there. (It’s her stage) (This is Nicole’s performance) (“Memory,” a soundtrack from “Cats”) (He’s engrossed) (It’s a yearnful song about reaching one’s dream) (Here’s your coke) (They can feel her yearning) (The servers continue to bring out the orders) That’s Nicole, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you, Nicole. She was amazing. – She was incredible. / – This place is… Just jaw-dropping. (Even he is surprised) Pound on your tables. Come on. Everybody, pound on your tables. Now, let me hear you scream over the pounding. Come on. Give it to me. (Pounding) Is this it? This is it. Hello, guys. We’re in Times Square, New York City. (It’s time to loosen their bodies) I get why people get in line. I finally get it. They all want to watch the performances. Hyounsoo, you need to dance. Let’s tell him to dance right now. I’ll do it when it feels right. Dance when you feel like it. (He’s charging his confidence) (Grooving) (Filling up) (He’s completely charged) (He stands up) (This is the epitome of being confident) (Laughing) (Look at him) (Filming Hyounsoo) (Haein decides to film him) (Producer Jung’s footage) (Those in line watch him as well) (He’s offbeat) (She bursts into laughter) (Dancing internally) (Hyounsoo’s groove is contagious) (Let’s go once again) We’re doing it again. Here we go. Film him. (Jonggeon joins him) (He likes it) (Will they be debuting in Broadway?) (Broadway, are you watching this?) (Producer Jung’s footage) (He ends his stage by throwing some straws) (It was a great debut stage for Hyounsoo) (He’s completely adjusted to this atmosphere) Nicole and James are going to sing next. Nicole will be singing again. (Surprised) That’s from “Grease.” “Summer Nights.” You had your performance. – That was my first musical. / – I know. It was my first time acting. I was a freshman in college. (He was a freshman) You should sing along. (He didn’t expect to hear this song here) ♪ You’re the one that I want ♪ (Singing) (He automatically sings along) (Everyone is captivated by the song) (I’d like another glass of yogurt, please) (Dancing) (He remembers the lyrics from 11 years ago) I remember you dancing. (His body still remembers the dance moves) I performed this in college. (Go, Haein!) (Producer Jung’s New York Playlist) (When he sings to her) (She sings back) (He becomes nostalgic) (He reminisces the good, old days) (When he used to be an aspiring actor) (Singing) ♪ Tell me more, tell me more ♪ ♪ How far have you gone? ♪ ♪ Tell me more, tell me more ♪ (He’s having so much fun) This feels so weird. I usually don’t take videos, but this time, I must. (Producer Jung’s footage) Everybody! (The finale feels like the musical itself) Clap your hands. That was James and Nicole, everybody! Thank you, James. Thank you, Nicole. What’s going on? Having a good time tonight? – Make some noise. / – My body’s heating up. (Nicole goes back to waiting tables) That was amazing. She was so good. The waitress that served our food. – Why did she lie? / – That was beautiful. Seriously. Hey, actually, “Grease” was his first play. – Really? / – Yes. – I was 20. / – He was 20. It was his first year in college in Korea. Yes. So he remembered all the dance moves. Nice. First of all, I was so amazed by your show. – Thank you. / – Yes. Tell her that I hope a lot more people will get to see her perform on stage. You have to go on stage with a bigger audience. It’s such a shame. People should get to see you sing. More people should get to see that. (Hopes that she’ll get to perform on a bigger stage) (We hope to see Nicole’s photo on the wall one day) (They finish their short chat) This is really making me think. When we act, it’s really important that we actually enjoy what we do. We need to have fun and be happy. My happiness and joy always comes first for me. If I don’t do that, I’ll become unhappy. It’s very simple. I know we receive a lot of love from the public. But we need to love ourselves and our acting first. We need to enjoy ourselves. If we prioritize how we look and care too much about how we’re perceived, it’ll become really difficult. We do this for ourselves, but it’s also to give joy to others. I feel like if we don’t want to get exhausted, we need to be happy with ourselves. (Taking the time to look back on their careers) (Producer Jung’s New York Playlist) I love this song. Seriously. You played this song like 10 times when we once drank beer together. 10 times? I think I played it about 30 times nonstop. (The night where everyone’s dreams shined brightly) Thank you. (Gathered together) (What is he doing with a piece of paper on his hat?) Jonggeon, how much should we pay for the tip? – I don’t know much about tipping. / – Normally… – $20? / – You pay about $20. What is that? (Thank you) I want to come back here if I ever come to New York again. I feel like it’s a place where we get to watch Broadway musicals at a fairly affordable price. I’ll pay. (Let’s meet each other in Broadway) (Producer Jung starts shooting again) I’m still so excited. I’m getting so excited. It comes naturally. (Koreans have a lot of excitement) (Let’s explore the fancy nightlife of New York) Hyounsoo has never been to Times Square. (It’s Hyounsoo’s first night in New York) (He’s about to see Times Square) We’re on our way right now. (Producer Jung is familiar with this street) There are tons of people here. (It’s 10 p.m., but it’s packed with people) (Walking in Times Square again) We are really walking. Seriously. We are really walking here. (He’ll soon memorize the streets of Manhattan) The electronic billboards are really bright. (They’re slowly getting closer to their destination) – Is this it? / – We’re almost there. (Surprised) (Look at him) I guess this city never sleeps. (Hyounsoo is cute) Do you know what I said the most after I came here? – “Wow?” / – “Wow.” Hyounsoo’s saying exactly what I said on my first day here. (Only 2 days ago, it was his first day in New York) (The way Haein reacted) (Is exactly the same) (He’s the new country boy) Hyounsoo, we’ll let you enjoy the view one step ahead of us. – Can I walk ahead of you guys? / – Yes, go ahead. (The country boy will lead the way) Welcome to New York. (Smiling) (Greeting tourists with a warm heart) (We’re back in Times Square) This place really is the landmark of New York. (He’s reminded of his first day in New York) Normally, we use the word “majestic” when we’re surrounded by nature. But I think that’s a great word to describe this place. Hyounsoo. Did you see the stairs? Did you see that? We need to go there. I’m so baffled right now. We’re here. I went up those stairs. We need to go there. – That’s… That’s really famous. / – Yes. – I can’t believe this. / – You should go up there. (Do you all remember?) (The red stairs in Times Square) (He sat on the stairs) (The Times Square Ball Drop) (Taking photos) (Everything was perfect but he was a bit lonely) – At the end of 2019… / – Is that it? – Oh, I see. / – That ball drops. That ball will drop after the countdown on New Year’s. That ball up there. What we’re seeing is the preparation process. (Are you impressed by my knowledge?) (You’re so amazing, Haein) It’s hard to be so impressed like this… – Yes, exactly. / – By a city. – Can I… / – You should go up the stairs. – I’ll be back. / – You should go by yourself. (The country boy leaves to go up the stairs) (He watches Hyounsoo) I feel so proud. What’s important right now is how Hyounsoo feels. (Knowing how it feels to be here for the first time) (The same place) (The same excitement) (There’s a sad story about the red stairs) (You become speechless due to the beautiful view) (It’s so beautiful that he just drops the camera) My gosh, this is crazy. (The way he exclaims) (Is exactly the same as how Haein exclaimed) (While Hyounsoo’s mesmerized) This is crazy. I’m serious. I guess they’re not cold. (They spot something) Look over there. People are starting to gather around. (A close observation) (There’s a street performance being held) (Times Square becomes their stage) If anyone dances here, that becomes a performance. After they built the stairs, this place became more than just a tourist spot. A lot of people who support a certain culture or a certain type of performance gather together. And now, it’s become a special tourist attraction. (A special tourist attraction for performing arts) Alright, listen up. Get ready! Someone’s performing over there. (In search of more performances) (He starts shooting again) They’re doing a street performance. (He broadcasts what’s happening out in the street) (The place is packed with a huge audience) (And there’s a group of eye-catching artists) When I say, “okay,” you say, “alright.” – Okay? / – Alright. – Okay? / – Alright. (Communicating) Everybody, put your hands up. (They catch people’s attention and start their show) I’ve never seen a breakdance show. – Everybody. Let’s go. / – Let’s go. (He watches the street show) – Let’s go. / – Let’s go. He’s breakdancing. (Showing off his skills like a human windmill) Wow. (Trying to take a peek) (He’s confused, both filming and watching) Wow. This is amazing. (The vibe exudes from his muscles) (Front flip with one hand) He’s really flexible. (He flexibly rolls forward) (He’s a spider on the ground) (He joins them in no time) (He does push-ups with his legs on his shoulders) (Peekaboo) (Back to the Producer Jung on his first day) (Today, he’s not traveling alone) (So he was happier on his trip) (After watching the incredible street performance) Wait. (They can’t forget to take a photo) Here we are. Great. (Feeling the happiest) This is the best. (Looking at their photos) This one is amazing. – I love this one. / – No way. (Laughing) – It’s a nice photo. / – That’s an amazing photo. (Epilogue) My trip felt a bit different today now that I’m here with my friends. (His third day in New York with his friends) This is nice. – I knew it. / – This is a great photo. The photo came out great. We might walk a lot today. (Autumn in New York) (And Haein reminds of autumn) Tighten your shoelaces and let’s go. (Will they be walking a lot?) Where are we going? This is pretty steep. We are walking a lot today. This is why this place is so packed. 2, 3! It’s a popular place where you can take great photos. It’s true. If we walk a little, there’s another amazing place. Where are we walking to again? (They follow Producer Jung and start walking) Is he filming us? (A cameraman from New York?) He’s talking to the agency personnel. Did I just get cast on the street? (Will he make his way to Hollywood?)
