On September 21, “Superman Returns” will air its 45th episode, “Meeting a New World.”
In the upcoming episode, Tablo and his daughter Haru will visit Minsok Village (a Korean folk village set up as a living museum of Joseon times). They will be reenacting a traditional wedding, and in the process Haru will be transforming into an adorable little bride.
In the released stills, Haru can be seen wearing a bright, colorful wedding garb that contrasts well with her white skin. It’s been said that Tablo couldn’t keep his eyes off his daughter, who had transformed into a cute yet elegant young bride.
But Haru just couldn’t help but be herself, as her attention was focused solely on the horse that had been prepared for the groom. Despite the fact that there was a palanquin prepared just for the bride, Haru gazed at the horse and asked, “What’s its name?” Eventually, she refused to ride in the palanquin
