Hey, you!

Aren't you Youngho?

It's really been a long time.

- Pleased to meet you, Youngho.

- Me, too.

What have you been doing?

It's really him!

- Welcome to hometown.

- You still remember me.

- Of course we remember you.

- It's really been a long time.

You remember this girl?

Chong Oksun, who always

fell asleep during class.

- How are you doing?

- This is Kim Mihwa with the frog lips.

- It's Lee Mihwa.

- Lee Mihwa.

Dr. Pimple, Shin Jongja.

Now, the wife of the chief of

a bus company.


Nice to meet you again.

Let's have a seat and drink.

- Hey.

- Sit down. Have a drink.

We really wanted to contact you,

but we couldn't.

It's all right.

I'm the one who should

be sorry for not calling you.

This guy's the head

of our friendship association now.

- Bongwoo club.

- Right, Bongwoo club.

I am really sorry

for not contacting you.

I said I am all right.

I've really tried to reach you,

you've been always on my mind.

But no one knows

your whereabouts.

I'm sorry.

It's more difficult than I thought

to gather friends after 20 years past.

Yeah, right

Just if I knew where you...

I said I am OK, I mean it.

Don't worry about me, any more.

We need to break the ice, here.

May I sing a song?

Of course,

you can. Go ahead.

Na na na na

Na na na Na na na

Na na na na

Na na na Na na na

What should I do,

you left so suddenly,

What should I do,

I can't live without you.

What should I do,

you left me behind,

That won't do, really.

Please don't go.

Did you have a secret

that no one knew?

You were the one so tender...

Now we bring

the next singer here.

Mrs. Jung, Madam!

Madam! Please!

Nil li li ya Nil li li

Nil li li ya Nil li li

Nil li li Mambo

My beautiful lover

never comes,

without a gale and I hate that.

I wish I knew

where my lover is,

to send him an umbrella.

Nil li li ya Nil li li

Nil li li Mambo

Do you remember

where that guy used to work?

He'd worked for Tae-hwa Elec.,

before joining the army.

It's passed 20 years since then.

Oh, my face turns red badly!

You've got autumn leaves

in this spring day.

- Looks wonderful.

- Looks wonderful.

Look at that! Shouldn't

we try to get him down?

Leave him alone.

He should stop in time.

- You're right.

- It's dangerous.

Let him down.

- Come down!

- Come down, have a drink!

Come down, I say!

- Do something!

- A train's coming! Hurry down!

- Hey! Hurry down! Danger!

- Don't care about him any more.

- Hey! Hurry down!

- It's a train! Hurry down.

- Kim Youngho!

- He won't hear us.

- Come down, you bastard!

- Hurry down, please.

Don't worry. Ten to one

who went to Han river

with suicidal intent didn't die.

Kim Youngho!

Kim Youngho, come down!

That man is too much!

- Hey! Hurry down, you bastard!

- I gave up.

You win. Do as you like,

you crazy fool!

Let's dance.

Let's liven up!

Hey! Come down!

What is the matter?

Come down and have a talk.

Kim Youngho.

Kim Youngho!

I am going back!
