TL: I made some mistake in the previous chapter. Marine is actually the company that produces the film, not the name of the movie. The way it was written is like saying the movie’s title, also the author didn’t attach Production House on Marine that why It is easy to be misunderstood until you read this chapter.
“That child is also here for the audition, right?”
“I’m sure. The scenario must be scary for the child.” Seo Eun-hye answered as Nara entered the tent.
“Will Seojun be okay?”
“Yes! I’m totally fine. I’m rather excited about the upcoming shoot.”
Seojun replied and sat in a small chair that the staff has prepared for the child actors.
Whether it was a waiting room for child actors auditioning or not, there were two cribs, a large table, a small table, a mirror, an adult chair, and several child chairs inside the tent.
There were also snacks, sandwiches, and juice.
Seo Eun-hye also looked around the tent.
So this was an American set. Even If she had never been to a Korean movie set, she could tell that this was amazing.
Nara handed a cup of coffee to Seo Eun-hye and asked.
“Do you feel pressured about the movie, Marine?”
“I felt like dying these past three days.”
Seo Eun-hye answered with a sigh.
Her hands were shaking as she signed the audition and shooting agreement sent by mail.
The name of the most famous film company in the world now is the top three.
They are famous by making real-life pictures of Marine’s cartoons and superheroes.
Their most popular movie was Redborn.
Redborn, which no one was interested in, turned the world upside down after its release.
Redborn fans have sprang up all over the world.
Now, they were filming Redborn 2, and many people were paying a lot of attention to it.
“Auntie Nara. When will Redborn coming out?”
“No, it’s another Marine movie, not a Redborn movie.”
Seoju, who enjoyed watching Redborn, pouted his lips.
Indeed, even though it was a Redborn movie, the scene Seojun will only be going to film was a very short scene that the audience will forget in just a second.
Nara laughed quietly looking at Seo Eun-hye, who was drinking coffee to calm herself down.
“This is a secret but the filming of Redborn 2 was delayed due to an accident, Marine decided to produce and release two another movies beforehand. That’s why their shooting schedule is tight.”
Just as Nara was about to answer Seojun’s question, a cough was heard outside the tent.
“Excuse me, may we come in?”
“Yes, come on in.”
Two men and a woman came into the tent.
The woman was smiling, while the man was wearing a thick robe.
“Hello, I’m Melissa, playing William’s mother.”
“Hello, I’m Barren, and I will be helping you with the shoot.”
Seojun came down from the chair and greeted them back.
“Hello, I’m Seojun Lee, a child actor.”
The two were surprised but then smiled.
They had heard that the last child actor is the youngest of 4 years old and 10 months old. He is quite smart and spoke very well.
“I thought it would be better to get closer to your before the shoot, so I came here.”
This was already the fifth time that they came to the waiting room for a child actor to say this. Melissa was very awkward and her lips were twitching.
“It would be scary if I suddenly lifted him from behind without knowing me first.” Of course the same was true of Barren.
“Oh, sit down. I’m Seojun’s mother, Eun-Hye Seo”
“Nice to meet you. I am Nara Kim.”
After saying hello, the atmosphere in the waiting room became quiet, but the awkward atmosphere soon was resolved.
It was because of the sociable Nara, actively asked about the filming.
“It must be hard for you to repeat acting the same scene.”
Melissa shook her head.
“I can act as much as I want, but the problem is because the kids cry so much.”
“A woman that they have never seen before screams loudly in front of them while a strange man catches him from behind, scares most of the kids.” Barron smiled bitterly.
“They must be too scared because they’re too young.”
“We just have to act, but the staff is already having a hard time.”
Melissa and Barron recalled Jonathan Will, the only crew with a nice attitude to take care of small children.
Jonathan Will has been running around all day long today, to soothe a crying child.
Melissa and Barren decided to achieve their purpose of finishing filming the scene by entering the tent.
Melissa, Barren, Seojun. The three actors sat in chairs and talked.
They continued talking from playing with his friend next door, Jack, to the story of another movie they were filming now.
Seo Eun-hye smiled, feeling proud of Seojun, who was talking happily.
“Jun, have you read the script?”
“My mom read it for me.”
“How was it? What do you think William would feel?”
“He must have been very happy.”
Melissa and Barren, who had already shoot for several times already, were showing a questioning face.
That can’t be true.
“My mom called my name.”
Seojun recalled the script that his mother read to him.
The scene where Seojun comes out will be short.
Enemies who invaded the Earth created wormholes all over the Earth.
The scene in which Seojun appeared was one of the scenes that showed such damage.
The baby, who was playing alone in the garden, watches the emergency news and looks at his mother running out of the house.
When the mother calls his name screaming, he smiles brightly holding the teddy bear that the baby was playing with.
At that time, behind the baby’s back created a frighteningly black wormhole.
The desperate mother called him out more than ever.
But the baby just laughed even more brightly at his mother’s scream.
And in an instant, the baby disappeard into the wormhole, with Just one shoe left.
“William doesn’t know anything. I was just happy that my mom called me.”
They heard an unfamiliar voice. No, it’s similar to what they heard earlier.
When Seojun raised his head, a man came into the tent.
Seojun, who was sitting on the chair, looked at the man with his head lifted to the point where it hurt
He was huge.
He was so tall and big.
Seo Eun-hye and Nara’s eyes were shocked. Wouldn’t he be an athlete if he hadn’t been a movie director?
Melissa and Barren, who were sitting next to Seojun, suddenly said.
It was Ryan Will, the director of the film.
Ryan Will came inside the tent.
Next to the director stood a makeup artist with a cosmetics box and a stylist with clothes for Seojun to wear.
Ryan Will sat in front of Seo-joon.
Seojun and Ryan Will’s eyes met.
Ryan’s blue eyes moved up and down as he looked at Seojun.
The child was bigger than in the video.
Black hair. Black eyes.
He has clear features, so the director thought he will come out well on the screen. His height seemed also reasonable.
He didn’t look scared even when he faced him, a big man.
In addition, Seojun have interpreted the script in his own way even though he was only an extra.
It was different from other child actors who will just moved as their guardian said.
Ryan Will smiled and held out one hand to touch Seojun’s face.
“You don’t seem to be afraid of me, so you have courage. Nice to meet you. I am Ryan Will.”
“Hello, I’m Seojun Lee, a child actor. Please call me Jun.”
Ryan Will’s big hand shake Seojun’s small hand.
“Yeah, no matter how sad and serious the situation is around, William doesn’t know anything. So you have to smile happily. Jun.”
Seojun smiled broadly at Ryan’s words.
‘I’ve got my secret weapon!’
Ryan Will, also greeted Seo Eun-hye and Nara Kim. After that he went out from the tent to prepare for the next shooting.
“Then shall we change your clothes first?”
Said the stylist as she looked at the clock. Seojun changed his clothes.
Fortunately, Seojun was already dressed quite warmly because the season in the movie was autumn.
“It’s a little chilly, but the cloth is thick and there’s a heating pad inside so he’ll be fine.”
“You don’t have to put on much makeup either.”
After finishing their work, the two quickly went out of the tent looking for another job.
“Then we’ll be there, too. Jun. Fighting!”
The so-called Wormhole role Barren, who will help lift Seojun from behind the back, and Melissa, who play William’s mother, went out of the tent to prepare for the filming.
They also went out of the tent to talk on the phone for a while.
Everyone left, and only Seo Eun-hye and Seojun remained inside the tent.
“What is Seojun doing?”
Seojun took out a flat slime pillow from a zombie bag.
It was his favorite item.
Seojun always carried with him the pillow made by Kim Hee-sung.
“So you want to sleep?”
“No, it’s called meditation.”
Seo Eun-hye laughed.
Where did he hear the word meditation?
She was also surprised by his development of the language that was far superior to his son’s peers.
“Okay, I’ll be here reading a book.”
Seojun went up to a corner of the tent. Then he lay down on the slime pillow.
His mother covered him with a blanket on one side.
“Then I’ll wake you up when it’s time to shoot.”
Seojun said while his mouth was pouting, and closed his eyes.
The “Summer Bear’s Hibernation” engraved on the back of Seojun’s head showed its outstanding effects.
He fell asleep as soon as the back of his head touched the pillow.
[Summer Bear’s Hibernation – The Lowest]
Summer bears are active only in hot summer. While autumn, winter, and spring is too cold for them so that they only sleep during that season.
Seojun fall asleep as soon as he lay down and close his anywhere for 30 minutes a day.
It increases his resilience after sleeping a little bit.
