She always hated the summer months, and opted to spend them in colder places. But since she was with Bobby now, migration wasn’t quite an option.
Bobby Appears on “Show Me the Money 4″ to Support Song Mino
On August 28, Mnet’s “Show Me The Money 4,” revealed the final battle between the last remaining contestants, Basick and Song Mino.
The behind the scenes for each performance was also shown in this episode. Song Mino decided to meet up with the third season’s winner, Bobby. Song Mino was able to express his true emotions as he stated, “When I decided to appear on season 4, the pressure from the public was unbearable. Your name was brought up often. I told myself it would be okay, but inside, I was so nervous. I know that if I don’t win, I’ll be compared to Bobby. I had such a hard time.”
He further continued, “While preparing for my debut, I learned that I need to become stronger mentally in order to overcome hardships. However, these days it has been really hard. I’m so sorry and so sad. When I told my father that I’m alright, he started crying. I debated a lot whether or not I should just drop out of the program.”
Bobby provided his honest opinion and said, “I didn’t know that you would come all the way here. However, the winner is Song Mino!” and showed his full support for his label mate Song Mino.

I’m sorry for disturbing you this late, but I was wondering if I could ask for

and Nathalie was getting goosebumps all over. Or was it caused by the handsome

want, it’s not an easy name to pronounce, I know.”

he said, tasting the name. “I didn’t want to seem like a creep or anything but
I just saw that there was some lights on over here, so I figured out someone
would be up. I wanted to know if it was possible to borrow a computer or
something for just a second? You see, I moved in over there just a couple of
days ago and there’s still no Internet access yet. My phone has been buggering
me lately, so I need to log into my telecom to find my PUK code so I can use my
phone again. Is there a possibility that I could do that here? I promise it
won’t take long.”
“Oh of course,
come on in,” Nathalie quickly said and stepped aside so Jiwon could get pass
her. When he was inside, she closed the door behind him and offered to take his
jacket, which he politely declined.
She showed him
the way into the living room, and offered to make them a cup of tea or coffee.
“Oh no thank you,
I don’t want to cause any trouble more than necessary,” he replied with a smile
and sat down onto one of the couches. She quickly turned on her computer and
gave it to him, so he could find whatever he needed to find.
She went into the
kitchen and made some tea anyway.
Just as she came
into the living room with two cup of teas in her hands, he had placed the
computer back onto the table. With a thankful smile he accepted the warm cup
and took a sip of it. She sat down the couch next to the one he sat in and took
a sip of her own.
“This is really
delicious,” he said and looked at her. “What flavour is it?”
she mumbled shyly and kept her gaze at the dark water in the cup.
They sat silently
in a while, with a rather awkward atmosphere, before Jiwon cleared his throat.
“You have a
really beautiful house,” he comment and looked around. “It’s quite big too; do
you live here by yourself?”
“Ah, no,” she
replied with a shy smile and looked up. “I live here with my son too. He’s
sleeping upstairs right now.”
understandingly, he looked interestingly at her. He was happy that she was
finally speaking up so it wouldn’t be too awkward.
“I see. I have a
son too,” he said smilingly before continuing. “He’s fourteen. Michael is his

an age,” she commented and took looked at him. “You don’t look that old, if I
may comment on your age. No, wait, I’m sorry. That was a terrible thing to say.
What a way to get to know your knew neighbour.”
He laughed loudly
at her red cheeks; she was afraid she might have offended him, but he seemed
like a rather open-minded person.
“Nah, don’t worry
about it. Biologically he’s my older sister’s son, but unfortunately she passed
away nine years ago,” he said and his smile never faded. She didn’t really know
how to reply to that but luckily he shook his head and came at her rescue. “You
don’t have to say anything. It’s a long time ago and we’re fine now.”
slightly but still felt incredibly guilty of making him talk about such a
sensitive topic. God, she really was terrible.
“So what about
you? How old is your child? Are there no father around, if I may ask?” he
asked her and placed his now empty cup on the table next to the computer.
Theodore. He’s 3 years old. And no, there’s no father around,” she replied with
a shy smile. It was a rather personal question, but he seemed to have no
problem with it whatsoever. So neither did she.
They sat in silence
once again, both of them not knowing what to say, before Nathalie finally
pulled herself together and asked him something.
“So, I’m guessing
you work for the military somehow?” she asked him and he nodded smilingly.
“Yeah, I’m sorry
I didn’t change before coming over here; I just got home before coming here.

comfortably and leaned back into the sofa. “.What about you? What do you do for

school class I teach,” she explained and placed her own empty cup on the table.

heard a yell from somewhere upstairs. Quickly she got up from the couch and
looked apologetic at Jiwon as he himself was getting up from the couch too.
“I’m sorry…” was
all she could say, but he shook his head, assuring her that it was fine.
Nathalie, I’ve been there before a long time ago,” he said with a smile on his
scream again. Nathalie yelled for her son to wait two seconds, before she and
Jiwon walked into the entrée. Jiwon got on his coat and shoes, before turning
around to look at Nathalie.
“Well, thank you
so much for your help. I wrote the code onto a piece of paper, so I shouldn’t
bother you again,” he said with a cheeky smile. Before she could reply him, he
opened the door and walked outside.
“Next time I
could give some tea, maybe?” he offered as he looked at her small frame in the
door. “It’s always nice to know someone in a new town.”
She couldn’t help
but smile shyly as she nodded.
“I’d love that,”
she replied before returning the small waving motion Jiwon was sending her.
When he turned around and walked towards his own house, Nathalie closed the
door and locked it.
Theo screamed almost crying now, so she quickly turned off the light in the
small entrée but also in the living room.
“I’m coming now
baby,” she yelled and ran upstairs. The whole way upstairs to Theo’s room she
was thinking about her new neighbour.
She bit her lip
and tried to calm herself down.
It was just a cup of tea. He just needed her help. Calm down Nathalie,
goddamn it. He’s your neighbour!
