Proudest filial piety (obedience to parents)?
Hyoyeon got insurance for her family.
Sunny: Just the fact that I was born should be a filial piety.
(Everyone is speechless lol)
Sunny: I’m just kidding. To be honest, shortly after I was born my mom was very sick. She was able to overcome her sickness while looking at me and saying “I must live to save her”
Yesung: I lived apart from my parents for a long time and recently they were able to move to Seoul. My father got hurt badly, so I set up a resturant for him. I feel like I wasn’t very thoughtful of my mom though because she gets tired from doing kitchen work (at the shop) so we’re looking to see if we can change it to a coffee shop instead. Just the fact that I’m able to see them often now makes me very happy.
Mir: I live in the country side so there’s a lot of tension with our neighbors (due to agricultural purposes). Therefore, I wanted my dad to feel good so I bought him four cows!
I was originally going to buy two, but the person who lives behind us bought 3!
Seohyun: Buying stuff for our parents is definitely a filial piety, but in my opinion being a daughter that they can be proud of is the biggest filial piety you can do. Working hard in our self-development (enlightment) so that our parents won’t worry is very important.
Jaesuk: Was there a time when you weren’t?
Lee Teuk: In high school, I had a gf. One day we were walking down the street after watching a movie and about 200meter away my mom was jogging towards us. At that time, we should have greeted her but I pretended not to see her. I was scared that I was going to get in trouble.
I thought my mom didn’t see, but my older sister came up to me and told me about it. She told me that her heart ached because she thought her son would greet him when he’s with his girlfriend.
Jaesuk: Seohyun what would you do if you were in the same situation (as Lee Teuk)
Seohyun: Of course I would greet my mom.
Jaesuk: What if you told your mom “mom, this is my boyfriend” and your mom responded with “what do you think you’re doing?” what would you do?
Seohyun: My parents aren’t the type to do that.
Jaesuk: This is so frustrating… we’re just saying what if!
Wonhee: Then what if your parents were in opposition of your future marriage?
Seohyun: Then I would ask why they are against it.
(Acting out the scene)
Jaesuk: You shouldn’t be dating! You’re in a time enlightenment!
Seohyun: I’m working hard in self-development and he is someone that assists me in this time.
Wonhee: No, we reject!
Seohyun: Please tell me what you don’t like about him
Jaesuk quits and goes: Seohyun isn’t the type of person to have a marriage that her parents will object, but wow she is stubborn.
Note: the whole part about Seohyun’s self-development / enlightment can be a bit confusing. I didn’t know exactly how to translate that part into English and that was the best I could do. They’re basically talking about the time of developing yourself as a person, etc.
