Narration: Wow! Jae-Min's house sure is busy this morning! They must be having some kind of celebration. Jae-Min's dad and grandpa are busy preparing food.
Jae-Hee: I mean, why do we have to go through the trouble of preparing all this food? We could just make it all at once with our magic?
Jae-Min's dad: Listen, Jae-Hee. We have to do this without using magic, so we might as well try to enjoy ourselves doing it. None of our love goes into the food if we just use magic, anyway.
Jae-Min: Huh? Are we having a party today or something? Wow, there's so much yummy food!
Jae-Min's grandpa: We're having some guests over Jae-Min, so wait until they arrive.
Jae-Min: Why are we having a party, Grandpa?
Jae-Min's grandpa: Well, today is the first anniversary of our arrival in the human world. And since we've had so much help from our neighbors all year, I thought we should have them over for a meal.
Jae-Min: Really? Then can I invite my friends over?
Jae-Min's dad: They're coming! We invited them and their parents.
Jae-Min: Cool! They'll be so excited!
Jae-Hee : Hmm... It would be great if Mom could be here as well. I miss her all of a sudden.
Jae-Min's mom: Ouch!
All: Who could that be?
Jae-Hee : M.. Mom!
Jae-Min's dad: Sweetheart!
Jae-Min's grandpa: Hye-Ri!
Jae-Min's mom: I knew you'd do something like this. Looks like you've really been enjoying yourselves in the human world. Look at all this food! Were you going to invite me? I don't remember any of you putting on a feast like this for me back in the Magic World. But you sure did complain about my food!
Jae-Hee: Gosh, Mom! You and your nagging! I thought you might get a little better if we weren't around, but I guess I was wrong! Haha!
Jae-Min: Wow, Mom! I missed you.
Jae-Min's mom: I haven't heard from you all for so long! So I decided to just come over myself! Yes, Jae-Min, I missed you, too.
Jae-Min's dad: But honey, what are you doing here all of a sudden?
Jae-Min's mom: Well, I'm on vacation. The minister must have sympathized with me being away from my family. He let me take a 1-week holiday.
Jae-Hee: Welcome back to the human world, Mom!
Jae-Min's mom: Why, I am most honored, hahaha.
Jae-Min's dad: It's so great you could be here. To celebrate our first anniversary in the human world, we've decided to have our neighbors over for a meal.
Jae-Min's mom: Well, what would such a special day be without me? Hahaha! What can I help you with?
Jae-Min's dad: We've done with the food, so can you just help setting the table?
Narration: The family is pleasantly surprised by the unexpected visit from Jae-Min's mom. The atmosphere certainly seems to be blooming, with the whole family here.
Jae-Min's mom: So, by the looks of things, you must be quite friendly with the neighbors?
Jae-Min's dad: Of course! Without their help, we probably wouldn't have made it here!
Jae-Min's grandpa: Yes, until now, I never truly understood the value of good neighbors.
Jae-Min's mom: I see. Well, what did you find most interesting in the human world, Jae-Hee?
Jae-Hee: Money! It's good to have it and it's really inconvenient if you don't have any.
Jae-Min's grandpa: That's right. But what I found most fascinating was how you get paid in accordance with the amount of work you do.
Jae-Min's dad: Yes, I know. In the Magic World, we don't need to work. We can do everything through magic.
Jae-Min: Money was interesting, but the affection humans have for each other is awesome.
Jae-Min's grandpa: Yes, human affection seems like something we could use ourselves, back in the Magic World.
Jae-Min's mom: When was the last time we all got together and talked like this? Back in the Magic World, we were so busy we couldn't even dream of doing this kind of stuff... Honey, can we keep doing this even when we go back home?
Jae-Min's grandpa: I miss my friends back in the Magic World, too... I can't believe it's been a year already.
Jae-Hee: Aww.... I miss all my friends back home, too...
Jae-Min's mom: Listen, honey. Everyone's homesick. I think it's time we went back home.
Jae-Min: Then, what about me? What about Kang-Ho, Se-Na, and Song-I?
Jae-Min's mom: Who are they?
Jae-Min: I don't want to go back to the Magic World if I have to leave my friends.
Kitty: Meow! Meow!
Jae-Hee: Hahaha! Sounds like Kitty's met a boyfriend here as well.
Jae-Min's mom: Well, then what are we going to do? I wish we could all go back together, but Jae-Min wants to stay.
Jae-Hee: Mom, how about we vote on it?
Jae-Min's grandpa: Yes, we'll let the majority decide if we stay here or not.
Kitty: Meow! Meow! Let me vote, too!
Narration: So the family is voting on whether to go back home or stay in the human world! They all look very serious.
Jae-Min's grandpa: Now, the voting results in this box will give us our final decision. Will you all follow the results in here, without question or complaint?
All: Yes, we will!
Jae-Min's grandpa: Okay then. Let's take a look at the ballots.
Jae-Min's grandpa: Stay! One!
Jae-Min's grandpa: Go! One!
Jae-Min's grandpa: Stay! One!
Narration: Wow! The voting results are really close! So will Jae-Min's family remain here or go back home? Let's find out!
Jae-Min's grandpa: Okay, so here are the results: Go, 2 votes! Stay, 4 votes! So we're staying here!
Jae-Min's mom: Aww... Well, there goes my dream of us all living together.
Jae-Hee: Hey, our guests are here!
Song-I's aunty: Hello!
Kang-Ho, Song-I, Se-Na: Hi!
Se-Na's mom: Wow, it looks like you went through a lot of trouble preparing all this food!
Jae-Min's dad: Welcome! There's not much here, but we hope you'll enjoy it.
Narration: Jae-Min's mom seems really happy to finally meet the friendly neighbors.
Jae-Min: Guys, this is my mom!
Jae-Min's mom: So you must be Kang-Ho, Song-I, and Se-Na? Gosh, I've heard so much about you all.
Se-Na's mom: Jae-Min told us you were overseas. Did you get back recently?
Jae-Min's mom: I flew in this morning. I got a vacation so I can see the kids, I missed them so much!
Se-Na's mom: It looks like you've raised Jae-Min really well. He's such a good boy at school, and he gets along really well with his friends, too!
Jae-Min's mom: Oh, thank you. Jae-Min has always been like that, hahaha. But I think his friends here have really helped him adjust to his new home. They seem like a nice bunch!
Se-Na's mom: Haha, I guess you're right. And Jae-Min fits right in with them! They're having so much fun together at school and learning new things.
Jae-Min's mom: (These neighbors really are nice! I think Jae-Min will do fine without me. He's got all his friends here.)
Jae-Min's dad: Well, let's eat! The food's getting cold!
Jae-Min's mom: Honey, just a second!
Jae-Min's dad: What is it?
Jae-Min's mom: You were right, you have some great neighbors here.
Jae-Min's dad: See? I told you. I wouldn't go through all this trouble for just anybody, haha.
Jae-Min's mom: Yes, I really understand why Jae-Min doesn't want to go home well. I think I'll get going, now that I've seen everything is okay.
Jae-Min's dad: Honey, you should stay here for a few more days. You only just got here!
Jae-Min's mom: I wish I could, but I have a lot of work to finish, so I've got to get back soon. I feel a lot better now though, after seeing you all and your great neighbors.
Jae-Min's dad: Well, if you must... Don't worry about a thing here, we'll all be fine.
Jae-Min's mom: Yes, I can see that! Haha! Well, bye!
Jae-Min's dad: Take care, see you next time!
Narration: So Jae-Min's mom is headed back to the Magic World, and Jae-Min and his family will stay in the human world! But this is not the end! The story of Jae-Min and his family's encounters in the human world will continue...
