Shin Sung Rok And ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo Share Farewell Letters With The “Master In The House” Cast
The June 20 broadcast of “Master in the House” was the last episode with the two cast members, who are stepping down from the show to focus on their main careers.
Their final trip took place on the island of Ulleungdo where they met their current master, Lee Jang Hee. Yang Se Hyung said, “I didn’t take medicine for seasickness, so I had a tough time physically, but I also had a tough time emotionally. Because I knew it was their last trip, I couldn’t raise the energy.”
Shin Sung Rok said, “I enjoyed meeting the masters, but I also liked just being around the members. I liked working with them and I liked contacting them even when we weren’t working and feeling how close we were. We’re all really busy, but we’re always cheering each other on as if we’re one team. I liked that a lot and it gave me a lot of comfort.”
Cha Eun Woo said, “When ASTRO made a comeback, it felt different having the ‘Master in the House’ hyungs around. When I heard their reactions to the song, it caught at my heart. When I go to film this show, I go with the mindset, ‘I’m going to hang out with the hyungs today.'”
After hearing about Lee Jang Hee’s reminiscences from his veteran career, Cha Eun Woo suggested that the members prepare letters for a time capsule.
At the end, Shin Sung Rok said, “Seung Gi is someone whom I leaned on a lot both physically and emotionally. I had no idea that our relationship would create such happy memories. I think that I’ll never forget these memories as long as I live. I’m always grateful to you and let’s grow old gracefully together. Se Hyung is someone who always goes out drinking with me if I suggest it. I’ll treasure your warm heart. Let’s see each other often. Dong Hyun, I know that you’re always sacrificing yourself for the younger members. I want to repay that love you’ve shown us. You’re the greatest fighter and champion in my heart. Eun Woo, somehow you and I have both started for a new path together. You look delicate on the outside, but have a strong persevering streak, and I both learned a lot from you and felt bad for you. Even though you’re still at the start of your life, I feel like you’re living with a lot of baggage in your heart. I hope that you can shed this weight and live more comfortably. Finally, to me. Congratulations on making unforgettable memories while taking on this new challenge for the past two years. Since I’m now 40, let’s use this as a driving force to try more adventures in future.”
Cha Eun Woo said, “I’ve learned a lot from the masters, but I’ve learned more from the hyungs. The hyungs were my masters. I’m going to keep working hard as Cha Eun Woo and keep moving forward so that I can be a dongsaeng that the hyungs can be proud of. Let’s meet often and I’ll call you often. Even if a new member comes and you get along well, please miss me. Seung Gi hyung, who likes to be praised; Se Hyung hyung, who chooses the menu; Dong Hyun hyung, who gets cold and scared easily; Sung Rok hyung, who seems knowledgeable at times and clumsy at others; I love you all.”
