Dok Go Jin and wife receive an invitation to attend President Jo Guk’s inauguration ceremony
AE JUNG: Though the media has reported about us receiving the invitation, but isn’t it wiser not to attend events like these? Getting involved in politics, it’s easy to get smeared, and there are already speculations about whether your image is being used for politics..
DOK GO: It’s not like I begged to be there… I, Dok Go Jin, have always been an outstanding actor, that’s why Chungwadae (Presidential Blue House) decided to invite us. Understand how honored you should be. Gu Ae Jung, after meeting Dok Go Jin, you have graced the carpets of Cannes, Venice, and now, you get to go to Chungwadae too.
AE JUNG: Yeah right, I’m terribly honored to be able to meet such a capable husband. So that I could receive an invitation to a presidential inauguration, and show my face to the whole world.
DOK GO: We, aren’t the ones who are honored, it’s President Jo Guk who should be honored, of course. I’m not someone who comes when you say come, or go when you say go, ok? I’m just helping them out ‘cos it’s a special inauguration.
AE JUNG: But.. you know what? The place where we went secretly before we got married, that place is Inju city – whose mayor is apparently the First Lady.
DOK GO: Oh really? Then we must grab this opportunity to make our Ae Jung the celebrity spokesperson of Inju city! HA.HA.HA.HA!
AE JUNG: What can’t come out of that mouth of yours… Anyway, this new president is rather handsome. With the kind of face that even people who know nothing about politics will vote for.
DOK GO: I have a vote-worthy face too… if I had run for presidency I would be the one inaugurated. Why, instead of going to meet her, how about I make you the First Lady instead?
AE JUNG: I know very well how you’ll just exaggerate everything I say to you, but please, just try to keep those words in, will you? Our dearest Dok Go does best receiving the love of the masses and pretending to be great, like what you are now.
After the inauguration ceremony, Jo Guk and Mi Rae greet and mingle with their guests. Soon, they walk towards Dok Go and Ae Jung.
JO GUK: Thanks for accepting our invitation. You are now regarded not just as a Hallyu star, but have risen to an international world star. And I heard that you have received the Best Actor prizes at Cannes and Venice. Good to meet you.
DOK GO: You’re welcome.. My wife says that our president is a minam (‘beautiful man’), and now that I’m standing up close, I find that although not comparable with mine, you do indeed have a face more lookable than your many political peers.
JO GUK: Ah, Ms Gu Ae Jung said that? Haha.. Indeed, words from a visual-gasu (pretty-faced singer) are beautiful too. I’ve heard many people talking about my good looks. Frankly, I’m tired of hearing it so much, but from a political perspective, being good-looking is an advantage too. Not only my face, but I have good brains, abilities, morals, common sense…
MI RAE: (nudges Jo Guk aside) I had insisted so hard with the President, about how I absolutely must invite Dok Go Jin and your wife to this inauguration. I’m your longtime fan.. whether it’s ‘Fighter’, ‘Over the Border’, ‘Greatest Love’, I watched everything..”
AE JUNG: Mrs First Lady, you are the mayor of Inju city right? Both of us have secretly gone to Inju city a few times.. While we were dating, we went there and even took photographs too. It’s a quiet and nice place to be. With nothing much around the place.
MI RAE: If you had gone there while you were dating, it must have been some time ago. Now we have a municipal hospital, an environment-friendly power plant, and various amenities everywhere. Do visit us again. We’ll be organizing the 6th Ms Herring pageant soon, would you like to be our guest singer for the event?
JO GUK: (whispers to Mi Rae’s ear) Can you talk about your city issues in another place instead of an occasion like this? It’s not good to be lobbying right after my inauguration. (continues to Dok Go and wife) It’s my pleasure to be able to meet the both of you. I hope you will continue to try your best to let the world know about Korea. And I’ll be President Jo Guk, one who has deep interests in furthering our cultural industry.
Ae Jung became the PR ambassador of Inju city and went for more picnics with Dok Go. Subsequently, Inju city’s earnings sky-rocketed, thanks to the pilgrimage of many Dok Go fans~
