Without realizing it, my trip to Europe easily trampled on the concept of a border embedded in one side of my head. Even Slovakia's border with Austria seemed vague when Choi Dong-stop drove to Austria to offer a drive. You'll find out when you leave Korea. How much do we compete, hate, and envy in this small land? You don't have to find your dream future only here. The world is still vast, and much work is needed as time changes.
I envied people who earned 300 million won. I envied people who earned 1 billion won if they earned 300 million won. If they earned 1 billion won, they would say, "I worked hard and made 1 billion won, but that person is rich in parents..."
Ri: As time passed, I thought less about going to Korea. I went to Korea about once every two years, but I felt that the quality of my life was deteriorating. I have a family, but the air is so bad that I became hesitant. People I met also said many negative things about work and relationships. When I said, "We're delighted," people were amazed. It was hard to hear that on a non-TV show. The most important thing was, 'If I were in Korea, would our marital relationship be the same now?'
Won-Cheol: I don't think I'm the 'best husband,' but I believe I'm the 'most conversational husband.' When I come home, we walk together and talk about everything we do at work during the day and the people we meet.
Re: The three years we lived together in Korea are incomparable to the depth and quantity we do today. In Korea, we were roommates sharing a bed. We ate almost outside. I thought I was the only woman in the assembly room, so I went out earlier and worked hard until later. I was physically discouraged, and my relationship was broken. While in the National Assembly for five years, I couldn't even attend a friend's wedding.
