Three days ago, they got a call from Nara.
Seo Eun-Hye talked on the phone on speakerphone so Seojun can hear it also.
“Seojun-ah, let’s shoot a movie!” (The suffix -Ah on the name is used when a person is closed to the other person.)
“I’ll do it!”
Seojun answered even before Seo Eun-Hye could process what Nara has said.
After coming to the U.S., Seojun, who had only filmed vlogs, was very excited.
If he only dilly-dally, he would never be a superstar.
Seojun ran around the living room shouting “Hurray!.”
“I want to do it! Seojun wants to do it!” (TL: Children at a very Young Age usually call themselves in 3rd person.)
“Okay! I’ll send you the script!”
At Seo Eun-hye words, Nara, who tried to hang up the phone, asked.
“What do you mean, a movie all of a sudden?”
“Last time, Seojun was watching a movie documentary, so I asked him if he wanted to be an actor, and he said he Yes.”
“And what did you do after?”
“So I sent Seojun’s commercials and YouTube videos to a place where they needed children’s actors, and they replied that he should come to audition.”
Seojun ran back to Seo Eun-Hye’s at her words and asked to the cell phone.
“A movie shoot? An audition?”
“He needs to pass the audition and then shoot the movie. There will be also other child actors besides Seojun. They’re going to choose the best actor in the movie.”
“So there is a chance that Seojun won’t be in the movie?”
“But think of it as an experience. What about Seojun’s thoughts?”
“I’ll do it!”
He was confident that he would be chosen no matter who he go against with.
Seojun clenched his fists.
Seo Eun-Hye, seeing her son’s current image, decided to accept Nara’s proposal.
“Then I’ll send you the script!”
They got an e-mail from Nara immediately after the call.
Lee Min-Joon, who returned from work, shook his head at the sight of his son staring at the script without even knowing how to read.
“It’s my son’s first shoot, but I can’t even go.”
“Don’t worry, I’ll take a Video.”
Seo Eun-Hye held the camera as a response to Lee Min-Joon.
-Oh, I forgot. It is a Marine Production House’s movie.
Seo Eun-Hye’s and Lee Min-Joon’s hearts dropped at Nara’s message.
* * *
“By the way, how did you know he has a show on YouTube and a commercial?”
“I saw it from a report of Mansae. I heard Seojun has been in front of the camera since he was 7 months old, he even shot commercials.”
Kim Mansae was Kevin Kim’s real name. (TL: If you are Seventeen fans, you know what Mansae means. Basically in English, Kevin would be called Hurray for literal translations.)
The eldest son Uli (우리), the eldest daughter Nara (나라), and the youngest Mansae (만세).
Long live our country, (TL: Put together their name will be Uri Nara mansae 우리 나라 만세 which means Hurray for our Country but the most accepted translation in English would be Long Live our Country).
Seo Eun-Hye, Lee Min-Joon, and Seojun laughed for a long time when they heard their names from Nara.
There was even a commotion among Brown Black’s fans as they came to know Kevin’s Korean Name.
“Our grandfather told us to write a report instead of a diary or letter since we were a little.” Nara shook her head.
Her grandfather told her to write a report since she was a child with runny noses, and now she is in charge of writing reports about her brother who left because he didn’t like working at the company and decided to be an Idol in Korea because he liked rapping.
Is there any normal person in their house?
“Me and my brothers are more familiar with things like that than writing letters. Mansae sent a report saying that I should look forward about your family four years ago. Of course, I read it and eventually forgot about it.”
A few days ago, when she saw an announcement about a studio looking for a child actor with black hair, black eyes and a pretty smiling face, she immediately recalled about Seojun.
‘Come to think of it, I think Mansae posted a report about that.’
When she searched the bookshelf of the study, there was a report from Mansae that she had read and put aside four years ago.
“The powdered milk commercial Seojun took is just an ordinary ad for ordinary people, but it worked especially well for parents with babies. The eating shows that Seojun filmed also has a huge impact among babies under 20 months old.”
Nara, as she read the report, also looked up to the other video.
Clearly, it was just an ordinary advertisement in her eyes, but the reactions among parents and children were unusual.
Nara looked at Seojun through the rearview mirror. Seojun flinched at her sharp look.
“It turns out, Eric next door also watched Seojun’s video. He said it helped him a lot when feeding Jack.”
In addition, Seojun’s video was famous among in many countries.
“I know that.”
The first day, when they moved into this house. As they knocked on the neighbor to say hello, the Smiths, who came out, exclaimed imediately “Oh, Jun!” with a surprised face when they saw Seojun in Seo Eun-hye’s arms.
The couple and Seojun were also surprised.
Since then, the two families have become close friends.
“Also, Hee-Sung’s doll that Seojun always carries is selling well. He promoted it and now it’s sold out. That means Seojun has some charisma that captures people.”
Nara was later considering using Seojun as a model for King’s Market. But everyone was against it because he was not famous at the moment.
Seojun tilted his head.
Seojun had never used his ability. Hee-sung’s uncle doll was really just popular.
Nara’s car stopped as they arrived at their destination.
Nara unfastened her seat belt and said while looking at Seo Eun-hye and Seojunn in the back seat. “There’s nothing to worry about. Just take it as a practice. As I said on the phone, it’s an extra role that would appear for a short time. He just have to look at the camera without shaking. Did you read the script?”
Marine……. Seo Eun-hye recalled the name she tried to forget.
Oh……. Unlike her mother, who was pressured, Seojun was really excited. He can’t believe he was going to film in a huge company from the start!
“My mom read it for me! I practiced, too!”
“Yes, good job!”
Nara dropped Seojun off the car.
She didn’t forget to put the zombie bag on Seojun’s back.
Nara walked in front of the two.
There was a loud noise coming from where Nara was facing.
It was full of people moving boxes and people running around.
Nara spoke to a security personnel. The guard said something on the radio.
Soon a man came running from afar.
“Hello! I’m a staff here, Jonathan Will. Are you here for the audition today?”
Jonathan Will, a middle school student with freckles, asked with a piece of paper in his hand.
The paper was full of red lines.
“Yes. He is Seojun Lee.”
“Yes, wait a minute. There is another child actor who is auditioning right now.”
Jonathan wiped the sweat and guided the three inside. .
Jonathan opened the entrance of the tent.
It was then.
There were screams of women.
“Oh, my god!”
They heard a child crying.
Jonathan closed his eyes tightly.
The three people, unaware of the circumstances, tilted their heads.
When the child’s cry didn’t stop, a very loud voice was heard.
“Yes! Director! I’ll be right there!”
Jonathan, with a haggard look on his face, quickly said.
“If you wait here, the makeup artist will bring your costume. You can change into that outfit and come out when they call you. I might not be able to come and entertain you anymore.”
“Yes, yes! Coming!”
Jonathan, who turned pale at the voice of the director, quickly ran toward the set where he could still hear the child crying.
