Actress Kim Hye-soo gave warm comfort to the butcher’s family, who endured difficult times and is now living a happy life with her family.
In tvN’s ‘Somehow, President 2’, which aired on the 12th, the 8th day of the business day of a mart in Gongsan-myeon, Naju was drawn between the bosses (Cha Tae-hyun, Jo In-seong) and three part-timers Kim Hye-soo, Han Hyo-joo, and Park Kyung-hye. On that day, the butcher’s family visited the mart for dinner, and the members carefully prepared and served mentaiko pasta, crab ramen, and dumplings.
Cha Tae-hyun, who was carrying food, asked, “Are you originally a communist?” and the butcher’s owner said, “We are not from this place. It’s been about 27 years since I came down here. When I was newlywed, I lived in Gongju, Chungcheong Province, and came here almost like a night escape.”
The butcher’s wife said, “At that time, my husband was a representative at the company.” “One day, after hearing the complaints from the employees, I talked to the company to improve it, but I was fired alone. So she came down to this place where her sister lives with her money, 300,000 won, with nothing,” she recalled at the time.
Afterwards, the boss heard that the Livestock Cooperative was recruiting employees, and he started working at the slaughterhouse. But the process has never been easy. He woke up at 4 in the morning and made a living by not only working at the slaughterhouse, but also working part-time. He even injured his hand while working at the slaughterhouse, and to this day one of his fingers can’t straighten out.
The reason that I was able to start a butcher shop in such a situation was thanks to the mart owner who saw the couple in a good way. The wife said, “In what circumstances I met (the supermarket manager), don’t the children have to cook breakfast to go to school? However, the rice was so low that it was not enough to give the children two bowls of rice. At that time, there was a rice sharing bin for the needy in the Myeon office, but I went all the way to it, but I couldn’t bring it up. I got angry with myself, and I thought, why can’t I just live like this? It was around that time that I met the manager of the mart.”
However, the couple could not readily accept the butcher’s offer from the mart owner at the time. There were too many things needed to run a butcher shop. In the end, the wife had no choice but to ask her mother for help, and she said, “I have nothing, so this is all I have to give,” and she handed over all the belongings she had.
My wife said, “I don’t know how much I cried and thought about it when I brought it. I will never live like this again. I came here thinking that I do not want my children to inherit this kind of poverty again.”
Kim Hye-soo, who heard this, said, “It’s really good,” and “It’s really good when you say something, doesn’t someone give you strength when we’re having a hard time or when we’re in great need? But when things get better, there are things that lighten up that much, and I think it’s really nice that (the two of them) said thank you a lot,” she said.
After that, Kim Hye-soo approached her wife after eating and said, “Thank you so much. It’s really great,” she said, greeting her, and her wife finally burst into tears. Kim Hye-soo hugged her wife warmly and said, “You’ve been through a lot. It seems she kept holding back her tears. But it’s okay to cry. Aren’t you crying right now because you’re having a hard time and upset?” she comforted. The mother said, “Thank you for letting me know. It reminds me of the past like a film,” she said, expressing her gratitude to Kim Hye-soo.
