(The twins head to the master bedroom.) Dad, don’t come out until we call you. Until you call me? Please don’t come out. All right. The twins are up to something secret. They head to the kitchen. (They carefully relocate two dining chairs.) (They place them in front of the refrigerator.) What are they up to today? (What are they planning to do?) (This morning before their mom left…) Every day, you tell Mommy that you love me. But you always joke around with Dad. Shall we do something special for him today? – Let’s cook. / – Cook? (What does Dad prefer to eat?) Doesn’t Dad like spicy food? – Something spicy. / – He can’t eat spicy food. – Really? / – He can’t handle it. Dad, can you eat spicy food? Not at all. – He says he can’t eat spicy food. / – See? I told you so. Is Hwijae aware of their plans? First, they remove ingredients from the refrigerator. These have already been made. (We need to cook something from scratch.) Look, I found some rice. Let’s pour some sauce over it. What should we put in, Seoeon? Didn’t we eat ketchup rice a long time ago? Yes. (Squeezing away generously) Put in as much you can. They complete their dish of choice, ketchup rice. Put some of this on top, too. (What sauce are they preparing now?) Oh, no. Do you know what you’re putting in? Didn’t you say Dad can’t eat spicy food? Here is the sugar, Seoeon. What? They put in some sugar in case it’s too spicy. (Pouring) (Ketchup, mustard and sugar rice) Now, what should we put in next? Let’s put in some of this green stuff, too. (Let’s put in some wasabi, too.) Boys, that’s extremely spicy. – What is this? / – Shall we put it in? Sure. (I have no idea what this is.) Put it in. (It has to be healthy since it’s green.) Let’s just squeeze some on top. They top it off with wasabi. – I’ll mix it up. / – Hey. The world’s strangest dish is near completion. You forgot to put this in. – No. / – Why not? – We have to. / – We can’t. It won’t taste good. Then, where should we put this? Let’s pour it into another bowl. This will do. Let’s make him some soup. They pour coffee into a bowl to complete the soup. This looks great. (Rice dish and coffee soup are complete.) Dad, I’ll make you soda. They even add dessert to the full course meal to help their dad digest. It’s time to make soda. I’m really looking forward to Hwijae’s reaction. (Dad, please enjoy.) (They even make sure to taste it.) It’s good. The twins finish preparing a meal for their dad. How about we write him a letter, too? (The twins sit across each other to write.) I will draw a circle. Circle complete. (Mommy prepared the word “Dad” for them to copy.) (No) (He is stuck.) No. I’ll try again. I will flip the page. The page is clean. First, I will draw a window. Then… Just like this. Then… (He concentrates hard for a single stroke.) And then… Now, just one more line and I’m done. They perfectly finish preparing a hand-written card. Dad. Dad, we’re done. Please come out. Let’s see what my dear sons have prepared for me. I might cry tears of joy. I should close my eyes. – In one, two, three. / – In one, two, three. (They expectantly wait for his reaction.) – What is this? / – What? – It’s coffee soup. / – Coffee soup? I’ll give it a taste. I made that. Wow, it’s so good. – Who made this one? / – I did. (Seojun put together the soda.) Dad, hurry and try it. Which one? What’s this? We made this rice dish for you. – This? / – Yes. That’s sugar. – What else is in there? / – There are sugar, ketchup, and some yellow thing, and some green thing. We made this for you, so eat it all. – I should finish this? Okay. / – Yes, Dad. I’ll try the rice dish first. (He finally samples it.) It’s not that one. Wait, hold on. – It’s good, right? Isn’t it tasty? / – But did you… (Feeling proud) (In consideration to their efforts, he keeps eating.) – I want to try it, too. / – No, you shouldn’t. (Pouting) It’s too good. I should finish it. – Do you really want to try? / – Yes. That’s not a good idea. (Despite objections, he wants to try it.) (Hwijae feeds him the sugary portion.) It’s a bit spicy. – You made the stir-fried anchovies? / – Yes. (His eyes speak of his suffering.) (What in the world is this?) See? I told you it’s spicy. Let’s get water. (Seojun learns another lesson today.) I said it was spicy. (So this is what spiciness means.) I made that. But I wanted to make it tasty. I don’t mind the taste. I love the effort. I really enjoyed the first meal you prepared for me. What’s this paper, guys? – We wrote it. / – I love you, Dad. Really? Gosh. The Return of Superman, episode 182. “What’s Important is All Around Us.” (The next morning) Where are the twins headed? (Rustling) – I’m going to eat an egg. / – What? An egg, an egg. – Me, too. / – I’m going to eat an egg. (Seojun suddenly fusses over an egg.) (The twins are full of excitement.) I’m going to crack it over here. Then I’m going to crack mine there. (Tapping) (Cracking) Oh, no. Was the egg raw? (The elder twin broke the egg with his grip.) Oh, no. (He tries to scrub away the evidence.) (It only gets messier.) (Oh, no.) What is that? (Hwijae is still clueless.) Give it to me. (Hwijae is still clueless.) Seojun, hurry and bring back the egg. He broke it. Seojun did? He broke it. Seojun did? Hey. Where’s the egg? You’re in trouble if it’s cracked. (Seojun flees immediately.) (Hwijae is quite upset.) Both of you, come here. – Both of you, now. In one, two, / – Who’s in trouble? – three. / – Who’s in trouble? Both of you. Four. Stand right there. Not like that. Hold hands. Face each other. Hold each other’s hands. Look at each other. Stay like that. Are you smiling? Who just smiled? Look into each other’s eyes. (Hwijae attempts to teach them brotherly love.) (Like it or not, they’re in this together.) (He fidgets uncomfortably.) (Shaking) Stop fooling around with your hands. (Sneezing) (He sneezes mightily.) (Closing his eyes) (Picking away) What’s wrong? (The snot war begins.) It’s itchy. I have a snot here. (Wiping) (Fidgeting around playfully) Dad is a fool. (Hwijae is a fool in love with his sons.) Repeat, “I will listen to Dad” five times. Then come to the table. Begin. – I will listen to Dad. / – I will listen to Dad. (They shout at the top of their lungs.) – I will listen to Dad. / – I will listen to Dad. Hurry here. (The two of them are always happy.) I’m going to write to my teacher in Buyeo. Do you have any letters you want to write? – Yes. / – To who? Our aunt in Vietnam. Oh, you miss her, right? – Seojun, do you want to write, too? / – I love Bona. You love her? I love Bona. Seojun came to really like his little friend, Bona. (He grew fond of her.) Did you make new friends at school? – Yes, Bona. / – Bona? Bona is so pretty. In spring, many flowers bloom. I only love my dear Bona. What are you going to write to Bona, Seojun? “To my beloved Bona.” I’ll read it to you, so listen well. “To my beloved Bona. It’s me, Seojun. I love you.” Doesn’t this sound strange? It’s way too abrupt. Is there anything impressive you’d like to say? (What else does he want to say to Bona?) – “You’re so pretty.” / – All right. “I think you’re very”… Do you really love her? – Yes. / – As much as Mommy? Seojun, what do you like so much about her? – Her eyes. / – Her eyes? This is kind of crazy. What do you think about when you look into her eyes? – Flowers. / – What flowers? (Flowers?) – Dandelions. / – Dandelions? Let’s write, “Your eyes remind me of dandelions.” Do you think of her before you go to sleep? You do? – Dad. / – Did you forget about Arin? Did you forget about her already? It’s a bit clumsy, but the letter expresses Seojun’s feelings. We’ll go to the post office. Seojun, did you bring your letter? – What? / – Your letter. I thought you had it. (Their chemistry is automatic.) (It’s not in his backpack.) – It’s not here. / – I thought it was there. Who did you give it to? I didn’t give it to anyone. Dad. What’s the matter? Give me the letter, please. I need the letter. – You didn’t take it? / – No. How can you forget to take a letter to the post office? Hold on. (Hurrying) – Guys. / – Yes, Dad? – All right. Here it goes. / – Okay. Gosh, Hwijae came up with a good idea. I should try it sometime, too. (Is this really happening?) (Seojun is always tactful.) Let it get all the way down first. (Dangling down) (The letter arrives quickly and safely.) I got it. Get back home safely. Dad, I have something to say. – What? / – I have something to say. What is it, Seoeon? – I need my wallet. / – Your wallet? – You forgot to take it? / – Yes. Where is it? It’s in front of the door of our playroom. If you knew, then you should’ve taken it. You should give it to us, Dad. Here it comes. It’s your turn this time, Seoeon. (I don’t think doing all this is necessary.) I got it! – Dad. / – Yes? I’m thirsty. (Preparing) I used to be a boy scout. I’m capable of this much. Seoeon. Yes. It’s coming. – Did it arrive? / – Yes. Okay, thank you. Thank you, Dad. Thank you. You’re welcome. Make sure to thank the mailman. – Okay. / – All right. Letters were all we had in the past. We confessed our love with those letters. I see. (The weather is nice, and they feel just as nice.) (Bona, wait just a little!) The twins arrived safely at the post office. How may I help you? Can you help me send a letter? Sure. Who are you sending this to? To our aunt in Vietnam and Bona, whom I like. This is the letter you sent. Thank you for the letter. Hwijae, all the best! Go for it. Seoeon and Seojun, it’s Auntie Vietnam. I got your letter. I’d like you to visit me some time. When are you planning to come? Hi, Seojun. I got the letter from you. I’ll see you in the kindergarten. Bye.
