The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop | 월계수 양복점 신사들 – Ep.1 [ENG/2016.09.03]


(Hyojadong, 1953) Hello. Hello. Mansul, don’t forget this one. (Sewing) (Suits) (Wolgyesu Tailor Shop, 1970s) Mansul, is my suit ready? You can come and pick it up later. (Wolgyesu Tailor Shop) (Wolgyesu Tailor Shop, 2016) (The Wolgyesu Tailor Shop, Seoul Future Heritage) (Episode 1) (2016 Meesa Apparel Extraordinary General Meeting) (Appointment of the New Meesa Apparel CEO) (New CEO Appointment Ceremony) Good job. We are making sure the reception will take place right after the meeting. Congratulations in advance about getting rid of the word “Interim” from your title, Mr. CEO. All the employees are so happy for you. What’s this? It’s the wine for the big toast at the banquet. This might be suitable for a staff retreat, but on a day like this, you were planning on serving this for the big toast at the banquet? It’s relatively good wine, recommended by an expert. Relatively? Relatively? Is that a new wine brand? Excuse me? Major shareholders will be here for important business, and you think relatively good is enough? They have plenty of cult wines at the VIP Hall. They belonged to the late chairman, and we got orders from above not to touch them. Above? Aren’t I supposed to be included in that “Above”? I didn’t mean that. I’m sorry. I will take care of it. Serve these at the employee cafeteria. – Yes, sir. / – At the next shareholders’ meeting, we’ll say it was a gift from the presidential board. Thank you. It’s hot, so why don’t you come in, sit in front of the fan, and have some nice, cool watermelon? It’s okay, Mr. Lee. I’m covered in dust and I smell of sweat. Don’t be silly. Who doesn’t sweat when it’s broiling hot? Come in, cool down, and get some rest. Okay. Sit over here. Have a seat. Thank you, Mr. Lee. Enjoy. Seulgi? – Hello. / – Mom! She bothered you, didn’t she? Bother me? Seulgi is such a mature and well-behaved girl. So did you take care of your business? Yes, thanks to you. Thank you so much. Seulgi, where’s my goodbye gift? A kiss. We’ll get going. Have fun. – Bye, Seulgi. / – Goodbye. Wait, shouldn’t Gaeul be back from kindergarten by now? What was I thinking? When I come here, I lose track of time. Oh my, I was supposed to take my hair curlers out! I have to go. – Thank you for everything. / – Goodbye. Hello. Bye. I knew it. They’d never pass on free food. Gokji, why are you so mad? It’s just that those people are shameless. They come to your shop to hang out and eat and drink for free. They do it whenever they pass by. But nobody ever orders any suits. If it were me, I’d at least get the cheapest suit out of guilt. They’re not doing very well. And we are? Gokji, you’re pouting like a child. Oh my! Have you gone senile? I can’t believe you. Don’t be coy. I know you liked it. You wily fox. What did you have for lunch? Why are you being so silly today? Sew the collar on for me. It’s for the wedding. This is Lee Mansul. Tomorrow? The day has already come? What are you still doing here? Hello, Ms. Choi. Is she out of her mind? You only have a few hours left until your wedding, so why are you still on the sewing machine? I still have three hours left. I can be there on time. Getting married isn’t like catching a train. Be there on time? You have to put on makeup and try on some wedding gowns. Dajeong will help me with my makeup and Dongsuk is lending me her wedding gown. Dongsuk? Yes, renting one was too expensive, so I asked her for a favor. You’re unbelievable. Why would you borrow Dongsuk’s wedding gown? She failed at two marriages, so wouldn’t it be unlucky to borrow her wedding gown? Mom! How could you say that when you’re my mom? It’s not like it’s not true. Are you my real mom? You found me under a bridge, didn’t you? Wait, Gokji, you haven’t told her anything yet? I didn’t get the chance to. What do you mean? She found you under a bridge, Dongsuk. Which bridge was it, Gokji? It was Gokji Bridge in Jungnangcheol. You’re joking, right? Why would I joke about something like that? Wait, so it’s true? Mom, you drive me crazy! I can’t believe I gave birth to someone like you. Man… Did you sew the collar on? Mr. Lee? – Yes? / – If you’ve finished, let me have it. I’m going to iron it. I forgot. I’ll sew it on. Are you feeling sick? I’m just tired. This is Lee Mansul. This is Samdo. Samdo! What’s up? I felt awful about rushing you to go home because of my wife when you came to see me in Daejeon the other day. So I’m going to drop by and say hello. Did you close your shop? No, it’s not closed. My brother-in-law runs a chicken farm in Pyeongtaek, but he hurt his leg, so I’m delivering live chickens to a slaughterhouse in Seoul for him. I’m going to drop by your shop on my way home. I’ll get there in about an hour and a half. I’m sorry. I have to go to my employee’s wedding today. Is it far away? I’ll drop by the wedding, then. I’ll call you when I get there. Goodbye. My head… (Troublemaker) What? What now? Why is my dear husband throwing a hissy fit? Hissy fit? How dare you say that to your husband? How can a woman be so vulgar and unrefined? What a bumpkin. You can be such a bumpkin. You can never say if you like something and just complain out of shyness. But then again, I fell for that side of you. Did you eat lunch? How could I eat lunch? I’m about to die from the smell of chicken poop. I’m about to throw up. What can we do? Seondong hurt his leg and can’t move, so you have to help him. That’s why I got up so early to do this. Okay. Come straight home when you’re done. I’ll make you a very nutritious meal. A very nutritious meal? Freshwater eels. I ordered some wild eels. Why wild eels? My doctor said I’m ovulating today. This is unbelievable. Bok Seonnyeo! Don’t you know how old you are? You’re still talking about your ovulation day? Have you lost it? Age is just a number. I got you wild eels, so brace yourself. Do it right the first time, okay? What the… You have no shame. I’m hanging up! Do it right the first time, my butt. Try a thousand, ten thousand times. Hey, why be so embarrassed when we’ve been married for so long? Bae Samdo, tonight will be your funeral. Your father is here, Mr. Lee. My father? Are you busy? Why didn’t you call ahead? I came to check on something one last time. I won’t take too much of your time. I don’t need any tea. Yes, sir. What is it? It’s about my shop. I thought about it, and you’re the only one who can take over the family business. I know you’re well-educated and have dreams and ambitions, but we can’t let the family business your grandfather built with his bare hands go under. Family business… I’ve had enough of that. What’s so special about hunching over and sewing all day in a tiny shop that you so desperately want me to take over? Are you happy? I’m asking if you’re happy racing after money and success. I am happy. I worked all my life with scissors and needles, and it might look pathetic and worthless to others, but keeping someone warm and happy with the clothes I made, that was rewarding, and it made me happy. Just because you’re climbing up a high ladder doesn’t mean you can reach the sky. What goes up must come down. Can’t you see? I’m going to be elected as CEO at today’s EGM. – CEO? / – Yes. Meesa Apparel’s CEO. So stop talking to me about that. Close the shop and sell it. What? Stop working so hard for a dying business. Travel to nice places with mother, enjoy yourselves, and take it easy. I will give you ten, twenty times the money you make at the shop. I haven’t been able to tell you this, but actually… Dongjin? Father, hello. Hello. It’s been a while. I’m sorry I couldn’t visit you on your birthday. I had an important college alumni event that day. If you were busy, you were busy. What’s that? He’s going to become the new CEO today. It’s a special day, so he needs a special suit. I ordered one from Italy. It’s the hottest brand among Hollywood stars. I had to wait three months to get this. How dare you… Your grandfather and father are tailors, and you ordered a suit from Westerners? Please calm down. You know she talks without thinking. A person with a rotten mindset like you doesn’t deserve to take over the family business. This conversation is over. Father! There’s no time. Go get changed. Are you out of your mind? How could you ask me to put someone else’s suit on in front of my father? Must you wear your father’s suits your whole life? That’s tyranny. I know your father is naive, but today’s general meeting is important. You can’t wear your father’s old-fashioned suit. My father’s suits are as stylish as any other suits. He is the best when it comes to suits. But it’s still a tiny shop. It’s time for the board meeting, Mr. Lee. What jerks. How dare they insult me like that? Close your eyes, Yeonsil. Oh, boy… Why are you sighing so loudly? I keep thinking maybe we should stop her from getting married. She can’t find anyone better to marry than a thug and a scoundrel? He donated a kidney to Yeonsil’s late father and paid off her debt. How romantic is that? Don’t worry, Gokji. Yeonsil is a smart girl. She chose him because she has a plan. I’m sure she does, but if she was my daughter, I would never let her marry a man like that. I couldn’t. Where did you go without telling me? I had urgent business to take care of. What urgent business? Stop interrogating me. Where’s Yeonsil? Dajeong is doing her makeup upstairs. Why are you pouting? Seeing Yeonsil in my wedding gown made me jealous and brought back memories. Twice wasn’t enough? You want to make it three? Mom! Now that she’s getting married, you want to, too? Don’t get high on wild ideas and don’t do anything dumb. How degrading. She’s so rude. Grandfather! You look beautiful. Very pretty. You looked after me as if you were my own parents. I won’t forget that. I hope your mother won’t be mad at me when I see her in heaven, asking me why I didn’t stop her daughter from marrying a man like that. Don’t be silly on such a happy day. We should rehearse walking the bride down the aisle. – Shall we? / – Yes. Here it is. (“Here Comes The Bride”) The bride will now enter. (To my muse, Dongsuk) You look so elegant today and your melancholy mood looks so beautiful. My skills aren’t great, but I hope you’ll accept it. I’m not sure if I should tell you this, but I don’t think I can hold it in anymore. I must tell you today. Still, I’m a man, so I should ask you out first. Me? It’s coming off. What’s coming off? Your toupee. It was coming off last time too, and I thought about whether or not I should tell you. Use both hands to turn it and squish it down hard. Turn it like this. Squish hard! Hard! The men here are bad. They’re downright awful. Hey. Hey, lady. Put them back down. My legs feel numb. Just for a few minutes. What? What are you doing? She bought a ticket, too. So don’t cross over. It’s just a stupid guitar. Stupid guitar? But then again, what would you know? This guitar was custom-made by Orlando Flat, a master electric guitar luthier, just for me. Do you know who I am? It was made just for me. It looks like it’s from Nagwon Instrument Mall. What? With that crazy messy hair of his, he’s full of crap. I have very sensitive ears. What did you just say, lady? Nothing. I should’ve flown business class. Ladies and gentlemen, we will be landing shortly. Return your seat back and folding trays to the upright position. and fasten your seat belts. Please open the window shades during landing. You may not use any electronic devices from now on, so please make sure they are switched off. He’s not even homeless. What is she mumbling about? Did rumors I was coming home already spread? I should’ve put some makeup on. Korean reporters are the best in the world when it comes to getting information. Your Sung Jun has come back to you for good after living in New York for 15 years. It’s been so long. One, two, three. Hello, we are JEXO. (Angel’s Whisper, JEXO) Rock and roll. What? “I am a doll, JEXO”? What a dumb name. They seem popular, though. Hello, Mr. Kang. I just arrived at Incheon Airport. Did you do what I asked? Sing at a wedding? What do you take me for? I am Sung Jun. Hello, boss! Lower your voices. People are looking. Boss Jagalchi asked me to give this to you. Oh, boy. Thank you for coming and supporting me. Have a bowl of noodles after the ceremony. Yes, boss! I said stop it. It’s embarrassing. Yeonsil. Yeonsil, you look amazing in that dress. I really do have a great eye for women. Tell those men outside to leave. They came to congratulate me on my wedding, so how can I tell them to leave? You promised me to quit being a gang member. And that’s why I’m marrying you. I did quit. I told you over and over again. Boss Jagalchi sent them here just in case we didn’t have many guests. So hot-tempered. Okay. I’ll tell them only a few can stay. Hello. Why don’t you talk to each other? I have something to take care of. I’ll see you later. It’s not too late. If you make up your mind, I’ll get you out of here. My motorcycle is outside. I’m serious. Why are you laughing? This isn’t a movie. How can you laugh? We’re talking about your life here. He seems rough, but he’s not as bad as you think. You’re marrying him just because he’s not bad? How can you give yourself to someone like him? I could never pay him back for what he did. I owe him so much. You don’t have to marry him to show you’re thankful. Look into my eyes and tell me. Do you love him? See? You can’t answer. Love isn’t the only reason why people get married. My elders said even if you marry while crazy in love, that only lasts one year, or three at most. Love always changes. How can you say such a thing? Why did you come alone? Where’s Jiyeon? She just got a job. She’s been crazy busy these days. When are you two getting married? How can I get married when I’m unemployed? A gang member’s getting married, but an unemployed person can’t? Are you talking about a stranger right now? I’m not sure if you’re optimistic or unthinking. If I think too much, I might get scared. Why do you keep looking at your watch? Samdo said he was going to drop by. Mr. Bae? Why? He’s coming to Seoul for business and said he’d drop by to see me. If I knew, I would’ve brought some perilla leaf kimchi. Mr. Kim absolutely loves perilla leaf kimchi. Mom! What are you wearing? What do you mean? Are you the bride? Look at your dress and your accessories! Who knows? I might meet a rich old man who’ll die soon and get lucky. How can you say such a thing in front of your father? I’m just saying. I can’t believe I gave birth to you. Wait, wait! Mom. This is Mr. Lee, the owner of the tailor shop Yeonsil works at, his wife, and his daughter. I wanted my son Gipyo to meet a girls’ school teacher, so I was really disappointed he met a seamstress. How can you say that, mom? What, I can’t say that I’m disappointed? You’re getting a great daughter-in-law. I’ve watched her for a very long time. She’s kind and clever, tough and determined. And she’s amazing with her hands. Jack of all trades, master of none, they say. Teachers make the best brides. Your son doesn’t have a decent occupation either. What are you talking about? My son runs a business. He’s a respectable businessman! The ceremony will start soon, so please go in. Yes, mom. Let’s go inside. Father, let’s go. That woman must be twisted inside to say such rude things. Mom, please! I was going to send them a box of grapes, but I won’t now. Unbelievable. Hello. I am Sung Jun, and I’ll be singing at your wedding. Oh my! How can you wear that when you’ll be singing? Leather clothes in the middle of a heat wave? I’m a rock ballad singer. No matter how hot, I can’t give up on my style. That’s called rock spirit. What spirit? I’m depending on you. It won’t be an ordinary wedding song. I’ll make it really unique, so don’t you worry about a thing. But can you pay me in advance? I don’t have my wallet. I’ll pay you afterwards. Payment first. We don’t sing without being paid first. How can we pay you in advance? What if you get the money and run? What do you take me for? Ma’am, I’m Sung Jun. You know me, don’t you? You shouldn’t be so rude to me. Hello. – Hello. / – Congratulations. Fine. This is a happy occasion, so I’ll sing first and get paid later. I’m doing so many good deeds. We will begin the holy wedding ceremony of Mr. Hong Gipyo and Ms. Na Yeonsil. – That’s pretty / – Oh, you! Taeyang. When did you get here? You’re not working today? The groom will now enter. The bride will now enter. This is your father’s debt. (Debt Transfer Contract) Put your thumbprint there. If you don’t pay it back, your organs will be sold. Don’t worry. (Operation Room) See you later. (Debt Transfer Contract – Amount: $80,000) Yeonsil. Who’s that? Stop him! (Debt Transfer Contract) They have vowed to become husband and wife and share happiness and sadness together. I now announce to you this union has been completed. Up next is the wedding song. Rock ballad singer Sung Jun will bless the groom and the bride with a song. Oh my! It’s Jun! I can’t believe Jun is here… Am I dreaming? He’s wearing a leather jacket and leather pants? He must really be sweating under that. It must be hard for him to make a living. I know. ♪ After this night passes ♪ ♪ I must marry the man I don’t want ♪ Jun. ♪ Who left it there?

What is going on? Gipyo! Gipyo… Ma’am, I know you’re in shock, but business is business. Where’s my money? Are you kidding me? Who cares about that? Where should I… This is driving me crazy. Are you nuts? Hey, what are you doing in my truck? Get out! Get out! Hey! Are you mad? Stop the truck. Get out. What do you think you’re doing? Get out right now! I’m not trying to steal your truck. I’ll get it back to you soon so don’t worry. Gipyo! Hurry and get on. – Back up! / – Bride! Motorcycle! You! My pay! My pay! Taxi! This is like something straight out of a movie. Sir, follow that police van. Find the motorcycle in front of them. Unbelievable. Is this “A Moment of Romance”? There they are! My pay! Stop the truck! Are you crazy? Stop the truck! Stop the truck! Stop the truck! My pay! My pay! Stop the truck! Stop the truck! Hong Gipyo! Give me my money! It looks like you’re running from your wedding. What happened, Mr. Groom? You dumped your bride and are heading to your lover? You should answer when someone asks a question. Where are you going right now? Meesa Apparel’s headquarters. Meesa Apparel? (2016 Meesa Apparel Extraordinary General Meeting) The purpose of today’s general meeting is, as you already know, to elect the new CEO of Meesa Apparel, the position that became vacant after the death of Chairman Min Daegil. The current vice president, Mr. Lee Dongjin, has been acting as the interim CEO, but the board members have decided the position needs to be filled permanently, so we are going to elect the new CEO of Meesa Apparel here. According to the will of the late Chairman Min and the unanimous decision of the board members, the new CEO of Meesa Apparel… Is Min Hyosang, the supporting management director. We will vote on it to… What are you saying? My father’s will said Hyosang will be the next CEO? He made changes in his will before he passed away. He made changes in his will? According to whom? It was your doing, wasn’t it? You coaxed a man with dementia into changing his will, didn’t you? – Calm down. / – How can I calm down when the CEO position is about to be stolen? Don’t make a commotion in front of the shareholders. – Act with dignity. / – Dignity? After stabbing us in the back? – Yes, Mr. Lee. / – Bring my car around. What’s wrong with you? It stinks. Dongjin. Aren’t you Dongjin? Samdo? What are you doing here? Well, I’m not so sure why I’m here or what’s going on… – Are you okay? / – I’m fine. Where did Hong Gipyo go? Where is your husband? Which way did the man in a tuxedo run? Ms. Bride? You have to pay me for my singing. Okay, I will. I will pay you. Wait! You say you’ll pay me, but what if you don’t? Give it to me now, including the cab fare. Sir, I’ll give you that money, so let go of her. – What? / – I said I’ll give it to you! – Wait! Ms. Bride! / – Sir. – Who are you? / – I’ll give you the money. Talk about a complicated relationship. – I’ll pay you a bit later. / – A bit later? Wait, did you just grab my shirt? How do I know if you’ll pay me or not? – Mister. / – Hey, hey. Don’t cause a scene in front of someone’s workplace. Stay out of our business! Samdo, are you alright? I think I threw my back out. I’m not alright. – How dare you. / – Who are you? You little jerk. How old are you? Let go of me and… What happened? Why, you little… – Here’s the stew, grandmother. / – It was chaos. – Let’s eat. / – Eat. I knew things would go wrong as soon as I heard that weird song. “After this night passes, I must marry the man I don’t want”? How could you sing that song at a wedding? The song choice was a bit inappropriate, but he nailed the song. Who cares if he nailed the song? He ruined the wedding completely. Mom, why is that my Jun’s fault? Your Jun? How do you know that man, mom? Why don’t you call Yeonsil? I tried to call her just now, but her phone was off. You’re finished? I’m not hungry. Where are you going? To my shop. Keep eating. – See you later. / – Okay. Mom, father’s been acting weird lately, hasn’t he? How? He can’t eat, and he’s been very quiet. Maybe he fell for a pretty old lady and is lovesick. Don’t be silly. Should I make him some oxtail soup? Hello, Mr. Lee. Welcome. I guess you’re here to see Yeonsil. Yes, I dropped by to see if she was here. She’s not. My family’s been worried about her because we couldn’t reach her all day. Okay. I’ll get going, then. Taeyang. Yes, sir. Can you give me a minute? Try this on. What’s this, Mr. Lee? I’ve always wanted to make you a suit, but I didn’t have the time. I made that one for my son, but I want you to wear it. You two are of similar build, so it should fit well. It’s okay. How can I take your son’s suit? It’s okay. I made my son many suits, and he’s bought some on his own, so he has plenty already. Why don’t you try that on? I just need to adjust the sleeves and the shoulders a bit. Well… How much is… It’s a gift, so don’t worry about it. Wearing a good suit is a skill. When you look shabby, you don’t look courageous. A man feels confident and bold when he’s in a nice suit. I’m sure you’ll be able to do well at job interviews, too. Keep your chin up. This suit will take you to great places. Thank you, Mr. Lee. (Wife) Are you happy? I’m asking if you’re happy racing after money and success. I am happy. You changed the labels on Meesa Apparel’s old clothes and sold them as new ones? Did you do it by yourself, Mr. Hong Gipyo? The scale was pretty big for a one-man job. Where did you get all the clothes? How long do I have to rot in prison? Why are you asking me that? Go ask a judge or a prosecutor. Answer my questions. Where did you get the clothes with switched labels? Gipyo! I’m made you worry. I’m sorry. You promised not to do anything bad. But look at you. It’s not like that. I have a reason. What reason? I need to see Meesa Apparels’ director, Min Hyosang. This will be resolved once I see him. Meesa Apparel? This is great. Your brother-in-law sent his secretary to get this from the VIP Hall’s wine cell for the reception. Talk about getting ahead of himself. His father runs a tiny tailor shop, and he thinks he knows wine? What about you? Do you know anything, mom? You little rascal. Whose side are you on? Why take sides when we’re all family? Family, my butt. Nice. See? You’re more suited to soju. You look happy. You reek of alcohol. Let go of me. Be honest. You coaxed a man with dementia into changing his will, didn’t you? What are you talking about, Hyoju? You scumbag. You bribed the shareholders with money? You people, I’m going to sue and make sure you end up in prison. Even if you are drunk, you shouldn’t say that with no evidence. Evidence? Unbelievable. You’re all dead. You’re drunk, Hyoju. I’ll take you to your room. Let go. Just watch me. You didn’t leave any loose ends, did you? Don’t worry, mom. Where did you drink so much? I’ll make you some honey tea. Stop this hypocrisy. You’re conspiring with your mom and your brother. So don’t act like you’re kind and you care. It’s disgusting. I’m not acting like I’m kind. Welcome. Huh? My, my! Look who it is. They say you can’t escape your enemies. It’s good to see you. Why am I your enemy? If you’re not my enemy, are we creditor and debtor? I don’t owe you any money. You told me yourself that you’d pay me for my song. I was going to give it to you, but you refused to take it. That measly $30? That’s several times my hourly wage. Hey! How many times do I have to say it? Who am I? Let me tell you. I am a top singer who won the New Artist Award at the 2000 Korea Music Awards. Leave if you’re going to keep talking nonsense. Nonsense? I’m telling you the truth based on history… Why, that little… Sir, you have to pay for that first. No, jerk. I’m going to eat my pay’s worth. Man… Seriously… Stop being cheeky, little boy. Let’s see… Hello? Mr. Bae Samdo? This is Sung Jun. I’m calling about my guitar. You’re a real leech. Who is it? Look here, mister. I never laid a finger on your guitar. Why are you trying to frame an innocent man? You’re saying my guitar grew legs, tripped, fell on her own, and broke into two pieces? How would you prove that guitar wasn’t already broken before I met you? What a slippery jerk. Why you little, aren’t you a con man who extorts money by blackmailing? I’m sorry, but before that happened, I sang at a wedding. There are dozens of people who can confirm my guitar was perfectly fine. Whatever! I don’t want any more headaches, so I’m hanging up! Wait… Hello? So this is how you want to play, huh? Let me eat first. Why would you hang up like that? Is something wrong? It’s men’s business. Don’t worry about it. If that man bothers you again, tell me. I’ll meet him, skin him, and make sure he runs for his life. Is he an eel? How can you skin him? Why can’t you be more sophisticated? What’s “sophisticated”? Okay, okay. I’ll switch over to my sophisticated side. The eels have been grilled to perfection. Open wide. Ah. Here comes the tail. How is it? Not bad. In that case, here comes the next tail. Now that you’ve eaten the tails, gather your strength and in one go… You made me lose my appetite. Okay. – You have two chances, okay? / – I’m not eating. Fine. I won’t say anything, so stop being mad and eat. Here you go. This time is the middle part. The middle part. It’s too hot. Hot. You eat one, too. Third time’s the charm, right? That hit the spot. Have a nice day. Coffee… Aren’t you crossing the line? Crossing the line? You rascal. It’s a measly can of coffee. I’m going to keep coming back here until I get my payment’s worth. Are you okay? You probably didn’t even eat dinner. I came in because the light was on. Did you see your groom? – Yes. / – What happened? He said he was framed, but I don’t know what happened. I’m sorry. You must have been worried sick. Are you okay? Yes, I’m okay. Don’t worry too much. It’ll all pass. No sadness or pain lasts forever. Just hang in there until it passes. I can’t believe this. I almost forgot. What are these? This month’s pay and next month’s pay. Give one to your partner upstairs. But there are over two weeks left until our payday. And why are you giving us next month’s? I’ve been so forgetful lately and didn’t want to forget. And… When the orphanage calls, give them the suits. I already called the nun. Orphanage? You mean the suits you make for the high school graduates as gifts? Why did you make them already? I made them when I had free time. Also, your friend who works at the convenience store. You mean Taeyang? I finished his suit too, so tell him to come and get it when he’s free. Taeyang got a suit made here? No. There was a suit nobody wanted, so I altered it for him. Mr. Lee, are you going somewhere? Why are you acting like you’re going far away? With old people, you never know. If I don’t wake up tomorrow, that means I’m dead. Sir! You forgot your jacket. – Here you go. / – Thanks. A person with a rotten mindset like you doesn’t deserve to take over the family business. This conversation is over. Wow. Watch where you’re going. I think I saw him earlier. Sir, you’re the one who stepped on my dress, right? What’s with him? (Wolgyesu Tailor Shop) Now that I’m this old, I’ve realized life isn’t all that special. I got here by sewing one stitch at a time, and I the amount of time I have left is as small as a needle pouch. Suddenly, I felt I couldn’t let my precious time disappear like dust brushed off fabric, so I’ve decided to take some time off for myself. Rather than as the owner of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop or as Choi Gokji’s husband or as Dongsuk and Dongjin’s dad, I want to live as a man named Lee Mansul. Gokji, I’m sorry for shocking you. I will come back to you soon. Dongsuk, Dajeong, where are you? What’s wrong? What happened? Grandmother? Your father has left home. He’s run away. I can’t bear to sell the tailor shop my father and I worked at all our lives, so please talk to your mom and take care of it. I’ll come back soon. He ran away? He deceived me on purpose. He’s playing a cruel joke on me. Maybe father is cheating on you. Your wife is… So? I’m dumb! Did you have anything to do with that? I can’t talk to her! Congratulations on your transfer. Evil Queen! Cruella Deville! Wicked Stepmother! I came to have dinner with you. It’s your birthday today. I’m sorry. I can’t have dinner with you tonight. We can’t be together for a while. What do you mean by that? I can’t let them screw me over. I can’t go down like this.
