They decide to reveal their accounts of the trip while drinking, under the condition that they only stick to pleasant memories.

I began packing to leave Korea,

to live at my aunt's in Canada.

So I met my good friend

at Mt. Cheonggye.

We'd both been to

Tongyeong recently,

so we shared our stories

over a drink.

HAHAHA:

Sticking to the pleasant parts,

a sip for a memory.

Mom runs a globefish

restaurant there.

I went since

I hadn't gone for years.

Just to visit before I left.

Are those gray hairs?

Yeah.

What's taking so long?

Coming.

- Try this on.

- What's this?

Put it on.

Looks good on you.

Want it?

Do I need this?

Looks good.

- Maybe when it's sunny.

- Right.

He's gotten so big,

I wonder if he's really mine.

You must be so proud of him.

- Great-looking son.

- Thank you.

I was so hungry

and it was really good.

Hot food is great

for awkward moments.

I have to admit,

my mom's a great cook.

That was your

pleasant experience?

Sure.

I got to see Mom

and had great food.

- I had globefish soup, too.

- Really? Cheers.

Cheers

I don't eat globefish,

but a friend took me.

He's a well-known poet in Seoul

but lives there now.

He said the restaurant

was famous.

What are we having?

Globefish or mallow soup.

Why haven't I seen you

around these days?

I haven't been drinking lately.

- She's the owner.

- Hello.

I told you to call me ''Mom''.

I thought poets

were open-minded.

Okay, I will.

My son was here

and criticized my revealing top.

Can you believe it?

- It's not revealing at all.

- Right?

But it's a bit revealing

on the inside.

He's just so ungrateful.

Jeonghwa,

your poet is here.

Okay.

Tell her what you want.

Say ''Mom''.

Mom.

Good.

Call me that from now.

She's not a waitress.

She's like a daughter to me.

Really?

A secretary

at a foreign shipyard.

I hear her boss keeps

proposing to her.

But you know she likes you.

So be a man and

make up your mind.

She's so distressed.

Yes.

Bye.

- Hi.

- How are you?

Have a seat.

Nice to meet you.

Can we get some soup?

- The most expensive one.

- Sure.

Coming right up.

Thank you.

She's pretty.

Makes a lot of money, too.

- Really?

- She works at a foreign company.

She's very pretty.

It's my treat today,

so enjoy.

Yeah?

- Thanks.

- Don't mention it.

That pretty, huh?

Yeah.

The penniless kid bought me

an expensive dish.

I was really touched.

The soup was tasty.

And she had such a great figure.

Sounds great.

Women's bodies

can be so powerful.

And the soup was good.

- Right. Cheers.

- Cheers.

That day, Mom's friend

dragged me to his museum.

Said he built the place

by himself.

He was so proud of it.

He seemed to like Mom,

so I felt awkward.

You know the musician,

Yoon Isang.

And the poet, Kim Chunsu.

And Kim Sangok,

an important Korean Sijo poet.

- You know him, right?

- Sure.

You know Park Kyungri,

of course.

Yes...

It's impressive.

They're all from

this small town.

This is the one.

It may be a bit folksy,

but I prefer this

to his official portrait.

Seems to really

capture his spirit.

I see.

You resemble him.

I do?

Yes, you really do.

Gosh.

Excuse me.

Have some respect!

This isn't a pub.

It was great

how he shut them up.

The drunks

couldn't do a thing.

SEBYEONG ANNEX:

- It's huge.

- It is.

Is it a guided tour?

She's our

culture tour guide.

Sounds interesting.

She had nice legs.

You know the saying,

''you only see as much as you know''.

You now know more

about this place.

What do you see

in this 400-year-old building?

I can imagine the people

who lived here.

People. That's right.

Not just an old building anymore.

- Anyone else?

- We see them, too.
