December 31st was the day of the award ceremony.
Seojun, together with An Daho, arrived at the KBC Hall. He arrived earlier than others due to rehearsals for his ‘Special’ stage. His mother and father decided to come later with Uncle Chan.
Seojun looked at the stage where he would perform later. The stage of the KBC Hall was larger than that of the Halloween festival.
“I would be walking here to here.”
At Seojun’s words, the director and cameramen marked his movements on their notes. They followed the small child around and devised the movement and camera composition. One of the cameramen asked a question.
“What would be your speed?”
“Oh, this much?”
Seojun ran on the stage. It was similar to his speed in the Holloween festival. The Cameraman, who was measuring his speed by filming with a camera, nodded.
“I’m going to run on four legs on the main stage, so you’ll have to lower the camera a bit.”
“When will you stand on two legs?”
Seojun told them his ideas. He demonstrated the same way as he did in the performance back in the Halloween Festival. But there would be some changes, he will be standing on two feet without the smoke rising up due to the request of the production team.
Seojun moved in zigzag from the end of the stage, slowly moved in the middle, stood in front for a while, and ran toward the back of the stage.
All the cameramen that will direct the camera to his movements nodded.
“Thank you, Actor Lee Seojun.”
“Please take a good video for me.”
“Yes. Don’t worry.”
We don’t want to get cursed at either. Everyone swallowed their own saliva at the thought of Seojun’s fans if they ever mess up.
When News about Seojun’s Special stage appeared, people put “transformation to a werewolf” as his most likely performance rather than singing or dancing.
– I was dying of frustration while watching the poor-quality videos on YouTube.
-KBC cameramen, do well!
-If you don’t do a good job, we’ll explode your homepage with insults.
In addition, many comments were posted on the KBC website. The website was about to explode even before Seojun’s stage came out.
After greeting the filming crew, Seojun headed to his waiting room prepared by KBC.
Seojun was wearing comfortable clothes and spending time with An Daho in the waiting room, at the knock, he looked at the door.
It was Ji-Seok. Seojun smiled and welcomed Lee Ji-Seok, who he met for the first time after months since ‘My Clinic’.
“Hey! You’re here early!”
“I wanted to go with you. It’s my first time participating in an award ceremony.”
“Get out of my way, dude.”
Not only Ji-Seok but also uncle Jong-ho and Do-hoon were there.
Whether everyone was going to go up to the red carpet right away, they looked like they had just finished their makeup with their suits neatly tucked.
Seojun looked above Park Do-hoon’s head with a proud face. There was no more pattern on Do-hoon’s head, whom he met only a few times after the last broadcast of My clinic. A few months later, it was still clean.
“It’ll be okay now.”
Even though his current mentality is not the strongest, it seemed to have become strong enough to escape the influence of his ability. Seojun welcomed the three with a big smile.
“Did you enjoy the Halloween festival?”
“Yes, very much!”
“Seojun gets trending whenever he does something.”
“Did you decide on the next work?”
“Not yet. What about uncle Jong-Ho?”
“I’m going to do a modern drama this time.”
Lee Ji-Seok smiled at the words.
“Gangster, right?” Kim Jong-ho hit Lee Ji-seok on the back.
Park Do-hoon and Seojun burst into laughter as Lee Ji-Seok made a fuss.
“Seojun, let’s change now.”
An Daho, who was checking the clock, said. When Seojun, who changed his clothes in the corner of the waiting room, came out, the stylist put on some makeup on his face and fixed his hair. It didn’t take long because he was still a child.
The stylist looked to see if there were any wrinkles left on the suit. As soon as the three actors watching from behind An Daho saw Seojun’s clothes they were surprised.
“This is amazing. If you look closely, there’s also some embroidery.”
“Is it a dragon?”
“Like the one from the King’s clothes?”
Seojun nodded and said.
“They sent this outfit with embroidered Acacia tree and a dragon, and I decided to wear the suit with a dragon on them.”
“Wow. Seojun, I didn’t know you’re ambitious. Are you going to be the king next time?”
Seojun and adults burst into laughter at Lee Ji-Seok’s joke.
December 31st at 9 pm. KBC’s acting Awards opened splendidly. Other broadcasting stations at this time were completely free.
“I can’t beat him. Lee Seojun is coming out and he’s going to perform a Special Stage.”
“Someone grab Lee Seojun’s next work. How did KBC so quickly?”
“I heard this rumor across the street…”
“Lee Ji-Seok, Director Choi Min-sung, and writer So Eun-jin went to them. The moment I saw Cocoa Entertainment staff…”
The answering employee sharply grabbed the air.
“They caught him.”
“……Let’s do the same.”
“Probably he will appear with the actors, producers, and writers he knows since he is still young.”
“Who was the actor that came out with him?”
“Kim Jong Ho, Lee Ji Seok, Park Do Hoon, Lee Ji-Hye. There’s a lot more than that.”
“First of all, take notice of the actors from My clinic.”
This time the people in front of their screens were complaining at the longs ads.
“KBC, aren’t you done with the commercial yet?”
-Look at the commercial. It’s as long as when My Clinic was aired.
– Lee Seojun is coming out. I heard there’s going to be a Special Stage of Lee Seojun.
-What would he do for the Special Stage? Usually, people do things like this similar to dramas.
-King! Be the king! Wear Gonryongpo!
TL: Gonryongpo is the royal attire of the king.
– Oh! That’s good!
After the advertisement, they saw a long red carpet in front of the KBC Hall. The live camera turned around and actors appeared one by one.
With a loud roar, the actors raised their hands to greet, take pictures, and interview in the photo zone.
A large car came into the place where many actors passed by. Journalists were the first to recognize the flashing black car.
“It’s Lee Seojun’s car!”
“Lee Seojun is here!”
Flash went off. The car door opened and a tall man got off. Was it the manager? The flash stopped for a moment.
“It’s Lee Jiseok!”
It was actually Lee Ji-Seok!
After that, Kim Jong-ho and Park Do-hoon got off. Finally, when Lee Seojun came down to the floor, everyone was busy taking group photos.
This year, the flash went off mostly towards the actors of My Clinic.
Seojun, who climbed to the photo zone, was photographed again, and even interviewed. After that, he sat on a chair with his name on it. The order of their seating goes by Kim Jong-ho, Park Do-hoon, Lee Seojun, and Lee Ji-Seok.
“Why am I not next to Seojun?”
“Isn’t the staff considerate of your age difference?”
“Seojun and I are really close.”
“Do you want to exchange?”
Kim Jong-ho shook his head at Park Do-hoon’s words.
“If Ji-Seok took my seat, I would have taken yours, so no.”
“Then let’s do this. What?”
Park Do-hoon exchanged seats with Seojun. Kim Jong-ho, Lee Seojun , Park Do-hoon, and Lee Ji-Seok sat side by side in order.
“You’re starting to show your personality now, right?
Everyone burst into laughter at Lee Ji-Seok’s words. When Seojun pop out his head above the seat, the people in front also looked back.
Director Choi Min-sung and writer So Eun-jin, who hated to show their faces on television, were sitting in the front seat. Writer So Eun-jin seemed to have been nominated for the writer’s award and attended the awards ceremony.
“Congratulations! I heard you were nominated for the best writer award.”
“Yes! It’s really good.”
“Honestly, everyone who watched My Clinic would have cried.”
“It’s all thanks to Seojun, congratulations on winning the Rookie of the Year award!”
They enjoyed the joy of being nominated while praising each other. To be honest, all of the Actors from My Clinic, who were nominated, were smiling big.
“I want to be in your drama next time.”
Actors who were there to their seats also congratulated Director Choi Min-sung and writer So Eun-jin. They envied all the cast of ‘My Clinic’ that had become the most talked about in this year’s
“Oh, it’s Lee Seojun!”
Even among the actors, Lee Seojun was a special being. At such a young age, he appeared in a Hollywood movie that even adults find difficult to achieve. And from Marine’s series at that. He may not be the main character, but his role was as impressive as the main character.
Everyone looked at Seojun with sparkling eyes.
An Daho, who had been away for a while, headed to Seojun.
“Seojun, let’s go get ready for the celebration stage.”
“Yes! I’ll be back!”
“Have a safe trip!”
Seojun waved and moved away from the My Clinic crew.
-Red carpet is over!
-It was funny to see all the Actors of My Clinic today.
-I never thought they’d come at once like that
-Who will perform in the beginning?
After a long advertisement, the words “KBC Acting Awards” appeared on the screen.
Two MCs introduced themselves.
[Shall we start with the first performance?]
[Honestly, I was surprised when I saw the schedule, I thought he will perform at the end.]
At the words of the two MCs, people wondered who could it could be.
[We will start with actor Lee Seojun’s Special Stage!]
[A werewolf’s transformation]
-It’s been 5 minutes since we started. Already from the start?
-Is the KBC commercial okay? Are the ratings okay?
TL: Usually, the most important act will perform at the end but because Seojun is just a child and clearly a minor he can’t perform at such a late time. There is a law in Korea that prevents Minors from working on screen beyond 11 pm.
Anyway, the Opening act and ending act are the most important parts during awards.
