“My Unusual Daughter”. She’s really unusual. Hello. I’m a mom of a girl in sixth grade, who is the only child in my family. My daughter has always been unusual since she was a baby. This is what happened when she was seven. “Mom, my shoulders hurt.” “Please give me a massage.” – A seven-year-old girl said that? / – “All right.” “I’ll give you a massage.” “Oh, that feels so good.” “Mom, harder. That feels good.” She was like that when she was seven? At age seven, she was addicted to massages. When she entered elementary school, she was addicted to Chinese medicine. Even adults can’t drink Chinese medicine well due to its bitterness, but she gulped it down at once. She’s now in grade six, and she has become even worse. She’s so into K League Classic. K League Classic. – She can’t get over it. / – My gosh. “I’ll direct all my passion” “to soccer.” – She’s a girl though. / – “Soccer is the best.” It makes me frustrated every day. Please stop my daughter. (Please stop my daughter.) Hyunwoo, what did you like when you were 13? Magic. – Magic. / – I was into magic. I was interested in magic since I was young. When I entered high school, I started learning magic in earnest. A magic trick like this? It’s… (What was it?) You look like someone from long ago. I’m sorry. (It was a popular trick long ago.) We’ll invite the mother and have a talk. Please come on out. (Who is worried about her extraordinary daughter?) (Park Kyeongyeon) Is this right? (Welcome to the show.) Your daughter is interested in different things – than those of her age. / – Yes, my daughter is into things old men like. My husband gave her a massage to grow taller. She got addicted to massages since then and asked us to give her massages nonstop. We must apply high pressure like adults’ massage and massage her for over 30 minutes. “I’m fine now.” (You can now call it a massage!) Does she really take Chinese medicine easily? We went to an oriental medical clinic since she’s weak. After drinking it, she said that it’s really tasty. – She liked Chinese medicine? / – Yes. – Some are too bitter even for adults. / – I see. For example, artemisia capillaris. – Artemisia capillaris? / – That’s way too bitter. – It’s bitter. / – She drinks it well. – She drinks that? / – Yes. (No way!) We forced her to give up massages and Chinese medicine. I thought it’d be over once her addiction was gone. However, she suddenly became crazy about soccer. That’s what I’m amazed at. She’s a girl. How addicted is she? – She loves FC Seoul the most. / – FC Seoul. I once went to a game with her. Fans sing a cheer song before the game. I looked at my daughter while she was singing the song. She was crying while singing the song. (Her daughter was crying beside her.) Why? – Why did she cry? / – Was it because she was moved? – Was it because she was moved? / – Since it began? Did she cry while saying, “the game has begun”? – Gosh. / – I couldn’t believe her. – I didn’t know why she cried. / – Amazing. It wouldn’t be a big problem though. – Exactly. / – It’s possible she likes it. Her interest should only be her hobby, but all she thinks about is soccer. – All day long? / – She does nothing else. She must go see the game at least once or twice a week. – She goes to the stadium? / – She goes see the game? Yes, she must go to the stadium and see the game. Does she go alone? – She can’t go alone since it’s far. / – Not alone. If she had friends to go with, it’d be fine, – but there’s nobody. / – Nobody likes it at that age. – Nobody at that age likes it. / – No one will like it. My husband, me, or an adult should accompany her. Honestly, I don’t really like soccer. Since I know nothing about it, I just sit there. Going there together as a family, – including the transportation costs, / – That’s right. it becomes quite a burden if we go several times. With some food, you can easily spend over 100 dollars. You’ll spend more than that. Worse than that, the problem begins after going there. What does she do after returning home? – She looks up the game online again. / – That’s right. – That’s what you do if you love it. / – She analyzes. However, it becomes way too late after watching it. – She has school the next day. / – Exactly. Once she’s up in the morning, she becomes grumpy. That’s when we begin arguing, when a war breaks out. “I’m never taking you to a game again.” We’ll meet your daughter. What’s her name? It’s Kim Eunhasoo. – Eunhasoo. / – Eunhasoo. Eunhasoo. – Hello. / – Hello, Eunhasoo. Hello. Why did you wear that shirt today? I got it as a gift on Children’s Day. – You got a soccer jersey on Children’s Day. / – I see. I wore it to show it off. Stand up and show it off. Explain it to us too. I have my favorite player’s number at the back. – Dejan. / – It’s Dejan. His name is written at the back. My mom set a limit on how much I can spend. It costs more to engrave the name at the back. – I added my allowance to buy this shirt. / – My gosh. Many people here don’t know who Dejan is. Even I don’t know who that is. – Even I don’t know. / – You don’t know him, do you? It’s my first time hearing it. Please tell us who he is. Where is he from? Dejan is a player of Monte Negro. He’s 187cm tall and weighs 82kg. We weigh the same! (He weighs the same as me.) Besides, he’s 12 years older than I. He’s 36 years old. – Soccer fans would know him. / – Can you tell us why you like Dejan? MVP players are chosen after games. – Exactly. / – Among all teams of K League Classic, he placed third. I believe that it’s not easy. – Of course it’s not easy. / – Totally. – That’s why I like Dejan. / – Any other reason why you like him other than playing soccer well? – Is it his looks? / No, – His looks… / – not his looks. (She shakes her head.) It’s not because of his looks. – You like him but not his looks. / – Not his looks. – It’s his skills. / – Other than Dejan, do you like any other players? – Handsome players. / – Go Yohan. – Go Yohan. / – Go Yohan? There’s a player named “Go Yohan”? – He’s always been FC Seoul’s player. / – One club man. However, when it comes to skills, I prefer Dejan. Your mom sent the story because she’s worried about you liking soccer. What do you think? I’m worried since my mom stops me from liking soccer. When I talk about soccer to my mom, it’d be nice for her to react nicely. – I see. / – She’s indifferent. – “Sure.” That’s why I was / – Are you upset? – a bit upset. / – Now tell me when you became crazy about soccer. It was when I was in second grade. When my grandfather watched soccer on TV, I always sat by his side and watched it. Since tickets were given away at school, I went to see the game. – And then? / – The atmosphere was quite different from watching it from home. (The vibe was quite different from how it was on TV.) – “Quite”. / – How was it “quite” different? – “Quite”. / – “Quite”. How was it “quite” different? When I saw the game at the stadium, – I could hear people beside me / – Of course. cheering enthusiastically. There are scenes you can’t see on television. – You’re right. / – When I go see the game, I can see all of those. – That’s why I prefer it. / – She enjoys it very much. However, after seeing the game at the stadium, you see the video clips online again. That’s wrong since you have school. You should go to bed early. When I sit here, I can’t really see what’s going on in front of me. On the internet, I can find video clips of those if they’re important. However, what would you do – after watching them? / – The game’s already over. I think about what should’ve been done. I often think about the way how one player should change on the next game. – You’re thinking about… / – Your dream isn’t – what coaches think. / – becoming a coach. – Exactly. That’s what players do / – That’s right. – after the game. / – You can only sleep afterwards? Yes. How amazing. Eunhasoo, what do you want to be when you grow up? I want to become a composer. – A composer? / – A composer. – It’s totally different. / – It’s totally different. What a dynamic daughter she has. Why do you want to become a composer? I’m in a choir. I like singing the songs there, but I think composing songs would be more rewarding. So you want to become a composer, and you like soccer. – Yes. / – Ma’am, if she does her duties, you don’t need to worry about her. I guess she doesn’t do her duties. The day before her exam… Sometimes she has exams. One day, she was unusually studying at her desk. I approached and saw what she was doing from her back. On a notebook, she was writing down a cheer song’s lyrics. She was memorizing the lyrics. She was memorizing the song. I couldn’t believe how she was putting so much effort. – Her exam was the day after. / – Exactly. – You would’ve been so frustrated. / – That’s right. It’s not only that. In the car, we can only listen to the team’s cheer songs. What if you play something else? Does she hate it? – She wants to be a composer. / – We went to Ganghwa Island. We listened to the cheer songs only for two hours. You would’ve memorized them too. I sing them when I do the dishes before I realize. (She sings them before she realizes.) I believe that listening to the teacher well at school and studying with textbooks are enough. – It’s not enough. / – In my opinion, my grades are high enough. – Is that so? / – I think they’re okay. I’m the school president now. – Is that so? / – That’s why… – A school president? / – A school president? – She has leadership too. / – That’s why she doesn’t need to worry a lot. She has a very high self-esteem. – She has high self-esteem. / – How wonderful. – Self-esteem is very important. / – That’s… She believes – that she’s doing well. / – Her self-esteem is high. – Exactly. / – “This is good enough.” In my opinion, that’s not the case. – The cheer… / – Can you sing the cheer song for us? The one you memorized so hard. All right. – I have the props. / – You brought props? Props are nice. – She even has the props. / – How can we help you? I guess she carries them everywhere. Stand up from your spot. The first one is a song we sing when my favorite player Dejan makes a goal. (Dejan makes a goal!) (Singing) (They smile warmly upon seeing her perform.) (Let’s go Dejan) (She performs a cute dance with full of passion.) (She really did her best to memorize the song!) How cute. – You’re so cute. / – What’s the next one? The song you sing with the props. It’s a song named “My Way”. However, this is for cheering the players. – To support the players. / – One is enough. – That’s right. / – All right. You’re her father, right? Show some enthusiasm. (He’s an exhausted supporter of his daughter.) Ready, go. ♪ Among numerous roads ♪ (Just hearing it makes me tired.) (She’s totally excited as if she’s at the stadium.) How adorable. Lastly, show us the one you do at the stadium. – ♪ FC Seoul, my love ♪ / – ♪ FC Seoul ♪ ♪ In Seoul ♪ (She hops and claps twice.) ♪ In Seoul ♪ (They forget about the worry due to her cuteness.) ♪ Let’s go together, warriors of Seoul ♪ – Ma’am, join her. / – ♪ Toast ♪ – ♪ To our shout ♪ / – Sing together. (She sings with her genuine heart.) (My love, FC Seoul) (She’s really good!) – You’re good. / – It’s fun. (She’s totally proud of herself.) That was nothing. Normally, she goes on a chair and rests one foot there. I’d be trembling beside her while holding the chair. – She gets too excited. / – She puts a foot on the top? – She’d put it like this. / – She sits – at the supporters’ seats. / – That’s right. – She must sit there. Right. / – Not an ordinary seat. – Hardcore fans sit there. / – The supporters’ seats. – Male hardcore fans don’t cheer nicely. / – Right. – What do they do? / – They’re very blunt. – They swear violently. / – That’s right. – They use swear words. / – She’s right. My daughter would point at the players while yelling. – Then my daughter would say, / – Out of excitement. – “Can’t you come to your senses?” / – My gosh. “Get a grip on yourself!” I was so worried that my daughter would be too violent. – Sir, you helped her earlier. / – Yes. When she was cheering, you could’ve helped her faster. I got them for her, but it makes me upset every time I look at them. When I ask, “Do you like Dejan or me?” she doesn’t answer. – My gosh. / – Really? She just chuckles. I feel that my pride has been hurt at that moment. I also feel upset. That’s right. I totally feel him. – It’s not common. / – I even got all those for her. – Eunhasoo. / – Yes? Do you like Dejan or your dad? (Do you like Dejan or your dad?) Well… My dad. You had to think about it for so long? – Yes, my dad. / – She thought about it. You need to think about it for so long? Do you like your mom or Dejan? (Do you like your mom or Dejan?) Do you like your mom or Dejan? Look at this girl. (Betrayed) It must be true. – She likes him. / – You never saw Dejan in person. Sir, tell us how serious her problem is. My wife and Eunhasoo argue often because of soccer. (The mother and the daughter argue often.) I’m stressed out in between the two of them. – In between the two. / – Yes. There’s nothing you can do. We were late to a game one day due to a traffic jam. Since we were late to the game, Eunhasoo was whining and crying in the car. My wife was yelling at her. Let me explain the situation. My mom lives alone, so I suggested to go to her place, eat, and play there. She kept talking about the soccer game only. “I have to go to the stadium.” We went there after the meal, but there was a traffic jam. That’s not something I can do about. “The game has begun!” – She yelled at you? / – She whined. She cried and complained. – I was… / – She did that while crying? – I didn’t get why she was so upset. / – That’s right. I told her that we would never go see a soccer game. Your mom didn’t do it on purpose. It was a traffic jam. Why did you show your irritation like that? It doesn’t feel like I’m watching a game if I start from the middle. However, your mom didn’t cause the traffic jam by bringing all those cars. You knew that your grandmother lives alone and that she’d enjoy having a meal together. – I did. / – Still, all you could think of was the soccer game? Yes. Do you want your grandmother to like soccer too? Yes. I thought she’d be more mature than those of her age since she took care of her health from an early age – and took bitter medication. / – A little more mature. I thought she’d be mature, – but she’s not when it comes to soccer. / – Exactly. (She’s a kid who’s obsessed with soccer.) Eunhasoo’s friend is here today. Please introduce yourself. I’ve been friends with her since first grade to sixth grade. I’m Jeong Joohwan. Jeong Joohwan. In your opinion, do you empathize with the worry of Eunhasoo’s mom? I think it’s a serious worry. Eunhasoo likes soccer way too much. She only talks about the players’ names and the rules. I think her mom would be worried. Don’t you like soccer yourself? You’re a boy. I’m not very interested in it. – Don’t you know Dejan? / – No. What is your biggest interest these days? What are you most interested in lately? – Nothing. / – You’re interested in nothing? Who’s your favorite idol singer? – You don’t have one? / – I don’t like any singers. Not even a video game? Do you like Eunhasoo by any chance? (Is Eunhasoo your only interest?) – Isn’t that why you’re here? / – That’s right. (They both shake their heads.) I have a question. Does Eunhasoo get along with girls or boys at school? Eunhasoo is like a tomboy, so she hangs out – with both boys and girls. / – She gets along well. She’s very sociable. – Earlier… / – Does that bother you? (Does that bother you?) (He laughs awkwardly.) – Does that bother you? / – Not really. You trust her. (He teases them.) (Let’s just smile.) If you have something to tell Eunhasoo, do it now. It’s fine that you like soccer… Look at her face and speak. – It’s okay to like soccer. / – Why not meet her eye? You said she’s just a friend. It’s okay to like soccer… (He stares at her so they would stop teasing him.) How cute. I hope you’ll cut down on going to soccer games. – Who are you to say that? / – Why? (Who are you to say that?) – Why do you want her to refrain from going? / – Me? – Why? / – To see her? – He can’t hang out with her. / – There’s no time – to meet. / – Eunhasoo, what do you think? He wants you to refrain from going to soccer games. Still, I wouldn’t be able to let go of soccer. Tickets are still given away at my school. Seeing them makes me want to go again. However, you can’t go there alone. You must be accompanied by your guardian. Do you know how tough – your dad’s job is? / – I do. “My dad still spares time to go to games with me.” You should be grateful to your dad. However, if you think about yourself only, – your parents will struggle so much. / – Of course. I’m not telling you to ban your hobby for good. I’d like you to spend less time on soccer and take an interest on things your friends like too. Let’s begin with Hyeeun. You’ve heard her story. I actually think that it’s great how she has passion and a dream. If you think about why your parents are concerned, I think your relationship with your parents will improve. If you empathize with her worry, press the button now. (What does the audience think?) – However… / – I hear a lot of them. – In five, four, / – In five, four, – three, two, one. / – three, two, one. – Stop. / – time’s up. – Eunhasoo. / – Yes? If you have something to say to your mom, dad, and grandma, go ahead. I’ll try to go once every two weeks. Learn more about soccer so you can teach me a bit of it… (My conclusion is that I won’t give up on soccer.) one day. – All right. / – Your dad must have been very upset – when he was compared with Dejan. / – Exactly. Tell your dad that you love him. Look at your dad in the eye. (He looks forward to hearing her response.) Your dad is so much better than Dejan. (She makes eye contact with her dad.) (It’s awkward.) – Why can’t you tell him? / – Tell him. – She doesn’t act cute. / – Say “Dad”. (My daughter, I’d like to hear it.) She doesn’t act cute. – Since she doesn’t act cute… / – She must say it. – Say it in a cute way. / – “Dad”. – Say it cutely. / – Why cry? Is it because of Dejan? – “Dad, I love you…” / – She feels bad for him. – “You know I love you.” / – She must feel bad. Say a few words to him. – My gosh. / – How adorable. – I guess she feels really bad. / – She feels bad. – Dad. / – Yes? I love you. (Dad, I love you.) How adorable. Show us how many votes her story got. (The result) The last digit is nine. (Compared to other stories, it was a cute one.) Did it get over 100 votes? – It got 79 votes. / – It got 79 votes. (Her story got 79 votes.) “Are You in Your Right Mind?” is this week’s winner. (“Are You in Your Right Mind?” is the winner.) The winner will receive a gift certificate.
