“They are on the real-time charts!”
At Lee Min-joon’s words, Seo Eun-hye quickly looked at her cell phone.
Seojun, who was in his mother’s arms, also looked at the cell phone screen.
“Brown Black, Review of the Music Show, the First Stage on Music Show…”
Seo Eun-hye and Lee Min-joon looked puzzled.
They were speechless until they received a video call. Their stage was amazing that both of the two of them felt goosebumps.
In addition, as if they weren’t the only two who felt that way, everyone on the internet wanted to know who the group was.
“Seojun, the older brothers are amazing! Wow! I thought they were just hard-working guys, but I didn’t expect them to perform that great!”
“I should’ve seen them before my eyes! Sigh. Too bad, we couldn’t see them live.”
While Lee Min-joon and Seo Eun-hye complimented Brown Black, Seojun was watching the television.
He felt something burning within his heart. There was something burning within his deepest passion.
The stage of Brown Black that Seojun saw was definitely great.
It must have been a combination of not only [the orchestra conductor connection] but also their efforts, skills and talents.
After Brown Black’s performance, the applause and shouts could still be heard from the television.
Seojun felt the admiration and cheered them inside himself.
‘They are the same older brothers that used to hang out with me just a month ago.’
“There’s a picture of the kids on social media.”
“Their show with Seojun was also trending!”
His Mom and dad were excited without knowing Seojun’s frustrated mind.
While in his mother’s arms, Seojun looked at the cell phone screen.
The picture of the older brothers were smiling brightly on their way home.
They must have cried, because their eyes were red.
Someone posted a comparison of Brown Black’s on their way to the Music Show and after the broadcast.
They were completely different.
There was also other picture comparing a picture of a famous singer that showed no interest, and a picture of Brown Black smiling broadly while surrounded by cameras.
Looking blankly at the picture, Seojun suddenly realized that the life he had hoped for in his first life was happening to them.
Brown Black was quite similar to him in his first life.
Unlike his first life where he was unknown and died as an extra. Brown Black made their name known to the public. This was what his first life was hoping for, in order to take a step forward to becoming a star.
‘I’m gonna be star.’ (TL: Insert Nayeon voice from Twice here)
A resolution was thus made from Seojun.
Tears fell from Seojun’s eyes, while staring blankly at the cell phone screen.
It was tears that even Seojun didn’t realize to have shed.
He didn’t even know why Seo Eun-hye and Lee Min-joon were in a hurry.
Seojun’s eyes did not realize how the tears fell to the screen.
He helped his older brothers because he felt sorry that they were unknown.
He didn’t want to make them to be so desperate like he did in the past.
But seeing the people who used to be right next to him twinkling over there, Seojun realized that he really wanted to be a superstar.
After all the schedules, Brown Black and Seo Eun-chan headed to Seojun’s house.
They were also surprised by the unexpected applause and the camera flash on their way home.
When the couple opened the front door, they set off confetti to the Brown Black.
No one teared up this time. Also, Seojun, who was caught between Brown Black’s hugs, did not cry this time.
He was a little grumpy, so he kept pushing the faces of the older brothers sticking to him.
“Seojun seems to be ignoring us today.”
“I think so, too.”
Brown Black quickly washed up and huddled in front of Seojun.
To ease Seojun’s anger, Brown Black quickly picked up some dolls to play with him.
“Oh, did Seojun have this doll?””
“Wow, this is a Skeleton.”
Brown Black, who saw the monster doll for the first time, was surprised for a moment, but soon they played with Seojun. Seojun’s mood also eased quickly.
Kim Hee-sung also arrived as he was invited for the celebration.
The living room table was full of delicious food.
Lee Min-joon opened his mouth after they finished congratulating them on their successful debut.
“We’re going to America.”
“We are going to America, in a month or so.”
Brown Black shouted in surprise.
Kim Hee-sung, who has been frequently meeting Brown Black in Seojun’s house this past month, and Seo Eun-chan, the manager, only drank beer as if they already know about it.
“Yes, Min-joon was appointed to the U.S. branch. We think we will be back in a couple of years.”
“It would be lonely for him to go alone, so we decided to go together.”
Brown Black nodded with a puzzled look. Then, they saw Seojun was eating the hands of King Lich.
Two, three years. That was a long time.
“But where are you going in America?”
“LA. Los Angeles.”
In the midst of silence, Kevin asked, and Lee Min-joon answered.
“We have a house in LA. My parents and elder brother went somewhere else, now there is only my sister.….”
Kevin showed a picture on his cell phone.
It was a family picture.
There was Kevin, who looked younger than now,bother two men and two women.
“This is my brother and this is my sister.”
They could see the face of a blunt-looking man and the face of a smiling woman.
Lee Min-joon and Seo Eun-hye looked at the picture.
“I’ll call my sister and inform her about you. Call her if you have any difficulties or questions. Here’s her contact.”
“We actually wish that we knew someone in America, but is it okay to give something like this?”
Kevin laughed at Lee Min-joon’s question.
“It’s okay. My sister is very friendly. She will love you because she got to know more people. She is really bored most of the time, so even if you call her due to the most unimportant things, she’ll come quickly.”
“Really? Thank you. I’ll be sure to contact her.”
Seo Eun-hye grasped the contact information tightly.
They decided to go because they wanted to be together as family, but deep inside they were a little scared as they didn’t know anyone.
It was fortunate that they had someone to ask about life in the US.
Seo Eun-hye fixed the hair of Sejun, who fell asleep.
Lee Min-joon quietly looked at Seojun’s face. Seojun’s mouth was watering as he was dreaming about foods.
“I thought we could actually face this alone but I actually felt grateful that we have someone to contact in the US.”
Lee Min-joon laughed at Seo Eun-hye’s criticism. He did, too.
“There’s nothing I can do about it. Because we are now parents.”
(This scene happened after the filming, so it is like a flash back from the author on what had happened in the past month.)
“I thought about Seojun’s doll, others would think it is weird for a baby playing with those right?”
Seo Eun-hye was heartbroken for a moment when she saw Seojun hugging each of the monster dolls that returned to him after filming.
In addition, even during [48 hours] of the video, Seojun did not touch any other doll.
When she asked Seo Eun-chan, he said he didn’t touch it except for the first time, not only on edited version but also for the entire 48 hours.
“Our Seojun is so nice and smart. I think you are being too self-conscious about it right now.”
Seo Eun-hye, whose father died when she was young, has lived throughout her life without being frustrated, although she was sometimes hurt by the words from insensitive people.
She grew up overcoming such prejudice, so she thought she was living a happy life without paying attention to other people’s criticism.
But this wasn’t the case.
If she heard someone criticizing Seojun like “That baby with that doll is weird,” Seo Eun-hye didn’t know what would she do in order to avoid hurting Seojun.
From the doll being strange changed to the baby being strange, lingered in Seo Eun-hye’s for some time.
Lee Min-joon, who heard Seo Eun-Hye’s worries, also became a little sensitive.
This became their trauma without them knowing it.
“I don’t care if it’s us, but I thought Seojun shouldn’t hear that.”
“Yeah. What if Seojun gets hurt?”
So the couple played with Seojun’s favorite monster dolls only in the house.
Her co-mothers friends were good people, so they didn’t hide it them, but they didn’t take the dolls with them outside.
They only packed a normal-looking teddy bear.
Kim Hee-sung, who knew the couple’s feelings, considered about how he should make a better doll that Seojun would also like. This came in with the teddy bear.
However, such efforts made Seojun be cautious. It was like a silent pressure.
From the early age, the baby already started caring about people’s criticism.
While Seo-joon was thinking about how to relax and play well with dolls without looking after his mom and dad, Lee Min-joon was appointed to the U.S. branch in a timely manner.
A place where various people live.
A place where there are people of various tendencies and even unusuality can be an advantage.
Although they are adjusting their life very well as new parents in Korean, wouldn’t it be better to stay in the U.S., a county in which no will care about them?
Seo Eun-hye and Lee Min-joon’s trauma will also improve as they meet various people by changing their surroundings.
Seo Eun-hye and Lee Min-joon, who thought so, decided to go to the U.S. with Seojun.
Their money was enough.
Seo Eun-hye and Lee Min-joon saw their account linked to YouTube for the first time in a while. Their hearts was beating crazily at the unbelievable amount.
They donated to various organizations except for a certain amount of money to Seojun’s future.
“While I’m in America, we will need to study more.”
“Seojun will now see a new world.”
His Mom and dad decided to go to the U.S. for themselves and for Seojun.
