“Banpo Je-in town please.”

He got in the taxi and called Gaeul.
The signal lasted a long time.
Was she in a shoot right now? He moved the phone away from his ear to end the call.


“You don’t have to pick up if you’re in a shoot.”

-No, I just finished a scene.
I did it in a single take.
I sometimes marvel at my own skills.

“Looks like today’s the day of bragging.”

-What do you mean?

“I’ll tell you the details at home.
How was today? Nothing happened?”

-Giwoo hitting on me once is on the side of ‘nothing much’, so I guess nothing much happened today?

Maru opened the window slightly.
The near-winter air seeped in through the gap.

“Should I prepare some beer for stress relief?”

-Sounds good to me.

“I’ll get it ready then.
Tell me if it feels like you’re going to be late.”

-I think it’ll end before midnight today.
Rather than that, how was it on your side? Tell me your first impressions after going on a TV show.

“I think I did that once already.”

-But now it’s after the shoot.
I believe that it’s different now.

“Can’t I say that it’s the same?”

You better tell me now.
If you stay silent, something interesting is going to happen at home.

Maru smiled and spoke,

“I was really nervous before the shoot, but thankfully, I was at ease because a lot of people helped me.
Personally, I don’t think it was that bad considering that it was my first time.”

-People helped you?

“I received unexpected help.
It turns out there are a lot of people looking out for me.”

-You’re a blessed man.

“Not really.”

-But I don’t believe it when you say that you were nervous.

“I’m also a man with a heart.
I’m bound to be nervous about the things I do for the first time.”

-I don’t think you were nervous during your first kiss.
Maybe it’s because you already had another partner in mind?

“Wow, I’m having a hard time following your twist in topics.
It’s suddenly about first kisses now.”

-Maybe it’s because I just shot a kiss scene.
When I shot it, I brainwashed myself into thinking that I was kissing a dog, but it still leaves a bad taste.
I feel a little sorry for dogs too.
At least dogs are cute, aren’t they? Kang Giwoo doesn’t have a cute side to him at all.

“You sounded a little angry when you picked up the phone, and now I get why.
Did he hit on you during the shoot?”

-If he did, do you think I would’ve let him be? I would have snapped out at him to do it properly.
He was so spiteful and did all the acting properly.
He separates his public and private matters.
He’s a scary guy.
It just means that such a fine-looking man did such atrocious things behind people’s back, doesn’t it? I get startled several times a day.
How can he do something like that with a smile on his face?

“If you want to vent your frustration, now’s your chance.
A very good listener is on the other side of the phone.”

-While I do want to do that, I’ll stop now.
Nothing good would come out of infecting other people with my annoyance.
In return, though, you have to drink with me joyfully.

“I’ll show you what I did during the show.
It had pretty good responses.”

-You prepared something like that?

“I needed a solo shot for something.
Let me just tell you that I put my soul into my self-introduction.
You can watch the rest at home.”

-I’ll be looking forward to it a lot.

“Don’t get too high hopes.
You might be disappointed.”

-Unfortunately for you, I’m already filled with expectations.
Don’t you dare do it half-assedly.
I’ll compare it when the episode airs and get back to you for it.

Maru stroked his throat.
If he wanted to do it properly, then he had to exercise his throat right now.
If he could make her smile and relieve her stress with a funny act, then it wasn’t a bad deal at all.
While waiting for her who told him ‘just a moment’, he danced lightly and muttered the princess song.

“Are you a preschool teacher? I heard a lot of men are doing it these days,” asked the taxi driver.

He laughed saying that his daughter was looking after toddlers at preschool.

“I’m not exactly a preschool teacher.”

“So you are an elementary school teacher.”

“I don’t really teach anyone.”

“Then why are you doing something like….”

I’m doing it to show my girlfriend – he could not say those words.
The taxi driver looked at him with confusion, muttering that he didn’t look like he had a child.
A strange sense of silence gave off an uncomfortable atmosphere.

-Sorry, I need to go to the shoot now.

“Go on.
Let’s talk about the rest at home.”

See you later.

“Good luck with work.”

Maru looked outside the window.
The taxi driver’s gaze on him that was reflected in the rearview mirror was too prickly.

Hey, don’t glare too much.
We’re both getting old, aren’t we? You must have acted cute in front of your wife when you were young, right? – these were words he couldn’t say out loud.
