Would you like to take a look around? – Would you like to look… / – Yes. (The first thing that captured their eyes is?) It’s his mother and father. That’s your mother? It’s our 10th-anniversary picture. Beautiful! Thank you. His father looks a bit like Actor Park Sangmin. – He does. / – Really? And his mother is like Actress Kim Namjoo.

Is that you, Chenle? Someone made it for us when he was on a Shanghainese show. (Bright eyes) His brother looks like Singer Jeon Youngrok… I see what you mean. (I see what you mean) The rooms are amazing too. – I saw just passing by. / – My parents’ room. Room of my mother and father. (To Chenle’s parents’ room) Must be the study. – Wow. So pretty. / – Dad works here too. Yes, the parents’ place. Oh, let me show you some videos of what I’ve done in the past. (Looking forward to it) Videos from childhood, right? Let me show it to you. Frankly, I’m a little… – Shy? / – Embarrassed. – Really? / – I’m shy. Oh, the talent program! – Yes, the TV show. / – In China. – You appeared here? / – Yes. I did. (The soft voice that resonates through the air) Wow. What’s your name? I’m Zhong Chenle. Zhong Chenle. – Zhong Chenle. / – What song will you be singing? A song from a musical. (Young Chenle is full of confidence) (His voice captures the ears of the audience) (In 2010, at the age of 9, he appeared in) (“China’s Got Talent”) (In just an hour, his video reached 13,684 views) (Chenle is sang his song) (In front of a big audience without trembling) (Expression and movement filled with confidence) (That touched the heart of all) (Young Chenle’s stage) (Memories) (Twirl) Why? You did great. (Shy and doesn’t know what to do) Listen to that voice. How old was he? He was 9 years old. (Wow) – Wow. Everyone’s touched. / – My brother. – Real brother? / – Yes, my real brother. I’ll show you the next one. – Oh, this one… / – You remember everything? I tried holding a concert by myself before going to Korea. I was really nervous. It was the most nervous moment. (In 2014, at the age of 13 in Shanghai) (He held his very first private concert) (Despite the difficulties of filling up the stage alone) (Chenle successfully finished his first concert) (His mom must have been the most nervous) I’m getting goose bumps. Nice. Do you remember that time? Oh, that concert? Yes. (It’s a moment that can’t be forgotten) I was so nervous. (Shy, shy) What about food? Oh, the food’s ready. Shall we have something first? Should we eat first? – There’s a lot to eat. / – Oh, we can’t do that. We didn’t prepare much. Thank you. We’ve just met… We were just going to have instant noodles. Oh, auntie. (What’s the simple meal they prepared?) Wow, this is… They’re all special food of Shanghai. (Meat) (Seafood) (Even different side dishes!) (A variety of Shanghainese food!) She prepared all this for us. Did you make all this? We bought it from famous restaurants. Here, here. (What kind of food do they sell here?) I’ll take this. (Who are you?) (Customers are flooding in) (Cut, cut) (The meat looks tasty) Where to? (Which restaurant next?) (The line is even longer here) (Even the hallway is packed) Are there so many customers every day? Yes, they’re from all over China. The taste of Shanghai! (Must be good, right?) (After a long wait) (The food is finally ready!) (What food could it be?) We bought it from famous restaurants. And is this fried pork belly in soy sauce? – Oh, this is… / – Red braised pork belly. – Red braised pork belly. / – Red braised pork belly. It’s very famous in Shanghai. – It’s good. / – Good? – How about that one? / – This one? Fish… (A fish dish this time) We could only have this on New Year’s day in the past. (Right, right) Now, you can have it whenever you want. New Year’s day… We have it often now. In the past… This is a duck dish. – Duck. / – Slightly salty duck. Okay, okay. Lightly salted… Nanjing salted duck is Nanjing’s really famous food. (Salted duck, a famous dish of Nanjing) (Served when special guests arrive) (Duck is salted in salt water with various spices) – This is the same. / – It’s same as that. (Same dish?) This is a goose. (Goose prepared in the same style as salted duck) – It’s goose. / – Goose? Goose! (This looks tasty) It’s made in the same way! I’ve never seen a goose dish. – Is this squid? / – Yes, squid. Wow. – We really… / – Wait. The main dish’s left. – Main… / – There’s a main dish? (Even after all these delicacies were served) – There’s more? / – We’ve left an empty space. All of these are main dishes. (One empty space for the main dish) This is the Chinese food culture. These are all main dishes for us, But there’s a main dish among all the main dishes. (Wow) Amazing. (Chenle’s mother’s secret weapon) (All the soul and the spirit of the land) (Has been added to this pot!) (The main dish of the heart and soul) (And what could that dish be?) – Mom really likes this. / – Dad likes it and… Wow. What’s this? Amazing. It smells amazing, right? It kind of smells like Korean spicy chicken, no? Isn’t it Korean braised spicy chicken? It smells great. (The main dish is Korean braised spicy chicken?) It kind of smells like Korean spicy chicken, no? Isn’t it Korean braised spicy chicken? This is going to be great. Looks good. Try it. Really. (Chenle’s recommended dish) – Try it and you’ll know. / – Is that chicken feet? There’s chicken feet and more. It kind of looks like Korean braised spicy chicken. (Big auntie is caring for every guest) I can’t eat chicken feet. In Korea, elders must have it first. – How about here? / – It’s alright. Elders must have it first… In China too. (Elders over here) It’s alright. Guests first. (Trying the sauce first) Wow! This sauce is… Korean-style spicy chicken with Chinese smell! I love this smell. – Try it. / – What’s this? Try this. – Is it chicken? / – It’s not chicken feet? This is chicken feet. But this one’s special. – It’s chicken. / – How does it taste? – Isn’t it chicken? / – It’s not. Maybe fish? Maybe not? (Whatever it is, they’re enjoying it) Isn’t it fish? Delicious. – It’s good. / – Delicious. – Delicious. / – Very good. (Exclamations from the heart) Very delicious! Do you know what it is? – What is it? / – I think it’s chicken. Isn’t it chicken? It’s frog. Frog? What is it? – It’s like fish. / – It’s frog. Frog? (Frog leg bone?) (Croak!) (Sangmin who thought it was fish freezes) But you can still eat it. – It’s edible… / – Frogs got this much meat? – It’s good. / – Don’t frogs… Have less meat? Must be the hind legs. – Wow. Frog dish… / – It’s good. – It’s good. / – Delicious. It’s delicious. It’s really popular in China these days. – Frog dishes? / – Yes. (Big auntie serves them more frog) Hyeonkyeong really likes it. – Have more. / – It’s so good! (The older brother who cares for his sister) The meat is so tasty. – And the sauce is good too. / – It’s soft. What’s this dish called? “Niuwabao.” It’s well cooked. (Niuwabao, stir-fried bullfrog in a spicy sauce) (Nom, nom) (Big auntie serves them other dishes silently) (Trying the stir-fried shrimp dish) These shrimps are small… – Can I have the head? / – No, you take them off. Why? I like the head. I already had it. – I already had the head. / – It’s so good. So tasty. (Proud) Wow. Sweet. It’s sweet. Shanghainese food has been known to be sweet. Now, since Sichuan food became famous, Shanghai started cooking spicier food. It’s little sweet. (Excuse me) (More frogs please…) (Sangmin enjoys frogs?) Sangmin would never eat frogs. – Really? / – The soup’s really great. More soup… – You don’t eat frogs? / – No. Well, it’s just like chicken. Right? I like chicken feet. (Sangmin’s deep into the frog dish) (Eating more and more) (Endless eating) (Oops) If I don’t say much because of eating… – Please try to understand. / – Oh, yes. I should eat less and talk more, but… I’m not talking much today. It’s delicious. It’s delicious. Your Chinese pronunciation is really good. Really? (Whatever’s happening, he’s just enjoying his frog) Very delicious. I’ll do the dishes. No, no. I told her I’d do the dishes. (Dishwashing won’t be needed for the frog dish) Did you originally enjoy frog like this before? It’s good. (A discovery of his new taste) I’m really glad that you like it too. – It’s so good. / – Tell her that she cooks really well. We’ll treat them to a good meal… – When they visit Korea. / – Short rib soup. – He’s an amazing cook. / – Thank you. Have the aunties ever been to Korea? Yes. they’ve been. When mom has business in China, they come. (Going in place of his mom) Oh, like shifts! (Wow, amazing) I’ve lived with them since I was a baby. Everyone loves Chenle. He’s like a son. How lucky is Chenle to have so many great moms. (He’s really been blessed) When my husband suggested that we have Chenle, I wasn’t going to. And we said we would help you once you have him. (Hahaha) (I’ll have to translate for them…) My dad… We played with you every day, right? More than 10 people looked after you. She has become talkative. Right? She got used to us. (I’m getting thirsty after talking so suddenly) So I had Chenle and everyone helped me out. They must adore him so much. Aunties must have children too. Compared to Chenle, who’s more adorable? I know the question doesn’t make sense. (Chenle, without a moment of hesitation) Really? Our children love Chenle too. They must really love you. When big auntie took Chenle to Korea, her daughter even cried to have her back. – To get her mom back. / – Oh, for her mom! (Chenle who the whole family put the effort to raise) – Jongmin. / – Yes? Did you try it? This is amazing. It’s so good. Red braised pork belly is good, right? Former Chairman Mao really loved this dish. That’s why we love it too. It’s braised short ribs that tastes like it’s smoked. Enjoy as much as you’d like. This is really good. Little auntie says this is really good. (Red braised pork belly that little auntie picked) Little auntie knows all the best restaurants in Shanghai. She has tried all. She always eats delicious food. (Shy, but that’s right) And she sings well. She goes to karaoke with her daughter every day. Karaoke? (Yes, of course) Have you listened to Chenle’s song too? (Of course) Have you? (Feeling shyer than any other day) You know some songs. – Like “Chewing Gum.” / – “Chewing Gum” and… “Chewing Gum.” – “Chewing Gum.” / – “Chewing Gum.” “My First and Last,” “We Young.” Please ask her for a song. – Everyone wants to hear you sing. / – Just a little. It can be short. I can, but the accompaniment is… Just sing without accompaniment. OK. I can do it. Don’t anybody laugh even if I’m not good at it. I’ll sing “Tian Mi Mi.” “Tian Mi Mi?” (Let me show you my talent that I’ve been hiding) “Tian Mi Mi.” (The joyful song of Deng Lijun) I’ll be trying my best too. Microphone? – Microphone? / – No need. She doesn’t need it. (Flick) (Chenle’s soft voice) (From his young age) (I’m the auntie of that genius singer, Chenle) (Oh, gosh) (Such a beautiful voice!) (The audience is immersed in her song) (Singing, singing) (Singing her best in her stiff pose) (Auntie’s nervous) (It’s almost like a stand-up microphone show) (Is this enough?) That song’s not easy. She’s got a beautiful voice. I’m so shy. Actually, I think… She needs some alcohol to sing. She seemed so nervous.
