“That’s why I wanted to visit you and talk to you.”
Seojun drank the orange juice.
‘Ugh, so sour.’ When he shook his head, Kang Sora, the team leader, chuckled.
“I can’t help it if the law says so.”
“I’m so sorry.”
Seo Eun-hye shook her hand.
There was nothing Kang So-ra could do even though the law was set like that.
They would sent gifts every New Year’s Day, Chuseok and on Seojun’s birthday. They even came and explained it to them what had happened.
“So there would be no milk powder commercial, now?”
“No, but we will come up with a trick. Right now, we don’t plan on advertising at all.”
Milk powder advertising has been banned. International regulations have been set to ban powdered milk advertising and more than 120 countries, that have joined the WHO together with Korea, followed the law.
It was to prevent abuse of powdered milk. That’s why the milk powder commercial that Seojun filmed wasn’t serving anymore.
That was not the only reason.
As technology advanced, the quality of TV was greatly different.
The advertising effect was good, but it was not suitable for future customers other than the parents with babies.
It was great enough to release a commercial that was shot four years ago throughout the entire year.
Kang Sora opened her mouth to break the bitter atmosphere.
“Oh, I watched Seojun’s movie. He did a great job.”
“Because Seojun likes to act. I’m thinking about sending him to an acting academy these days.”
Team leader Kang Sora rolled her eyes.
“An acting academy? So Seojun, who filmed a movie of “Marine,” will go to an acting academy…….?”
A mess would probably happen.
His picture would probably be posted on the wall of the acting academy, and the head of the academy would appear on television and promote his academy under Seojun’s name.
Many other things would happen, but it would hardly be a good thing.
When team leader Kang So-ra blurted out her words, Seo Eun-hye, who knew what she was worried about, also smiled bitterly.
“So I’m thinking about it. Acting isn’t something he can do alone. Seojun and I don’t know anything about acting, so I am worried that it may affect his acting career.”
Seo Eun-hye continued as she watched Seojun, who was eating orange juice while watching a movie documentary on her cell phone.
“I wish I had a friend who knows about acting or a teacher who knows acting very well.”
“In addition, Seojun is getting many scripts proposal, and I don’t know which one is good.”
As the relationship between Seojun and Brown Black became known, proposals were pouring in toward Seo Eun-chan, the manager of Brown Black.
It was amazing that so many companies in the world wanted him in their advertisement.
In addition, many child role proposal were also coming from dramas and movies.
It was hard to tell which one was good or bad, so they were all rejecting it.
But, it was mostly Seojun who rejected it.
It was then.
Kang So-ra got up from her seat with her bag in her hands.
“Wait a minute.”
Kang So-ra, who received a phone call, went to the corner of the cafe. Not long after, she returned to her seat with a subtle look.
“Do you remember the director who shot the commercial last time?”
“Yes, I remember.”
Seo Eun-hye and Seojun nodded.
It was his first ever commercial shoot.
Every moment of it was memorable.
He remembered the kind director who said he was a genius and gave Seojun his phone number to give him even a little help.
“Director Choi wants to see you one day. What should we do?”
“Why all of a sudden?”
“The director is filming a movie and he wants us to watch the scenario.”
Kang So-ra said carefully.
Seojun was already a very famous child actor, full of articles saying that many script are flying from Hollywood to him on the Internet.
She wondered if she could say this.
“I want to see!”
‘I want to see a scene being directed!’
Seojun raised his hand when he heard it was a scenario.
Whether his bright smile in Shadowman really remained impressive, or whether they could not believe in Seojun, who is still six years old, most of the scripts that came into Seo Eun-chan’s side were just standing still and smiling.
‘What’s that? It’s not fun. So I refused all of them.’
Seo Eun-hye also nodded.
She quite liked this director. He didn’t used their past ties to request Seojun to act for his film. Rather, he wanted him to see the scene first and judge it.
In addition, he was a film director who they are quite familiar with. She was more inclined with him than others.
“Then can I give you the director’s phone number? Or do you want me to send you his e-mail?”
Four years ago, a note with director Choi Dae-man’s phone number, which was cherished for Seojun’s future, was still in the notebook.
However, it may have changed in this four years, so Seo Eun-Hye entered the number Kang So-ra gave her.
Seo Eun-hye first informed Choi Dae-man of their available phone schedule by text.
Lee Min-joon and Seojun wanted to actually participate on the phone call.
After dinner, all of them gathered in front of their cell phone.
Seo Eun-hye called a representative.
“Oh, a mystery movie.”
Seojun and Lee Min-joon looked at Seo Eun-Hye, who was on the phone with Choi Dae-man.
“It’s a mystery movie.”
Seojun searched mystery genre movies with his dad.
There were more genres than he thought. From haunted movies, there were supernatural powers or mystery stories.
“There’s a horror in it. If it’s a horror movie, is it a ghost movie? Seojun, can you do it?”
“Yeah, will I be a ghost?”
“That’s possible. There was a time when a child appeared as a ghost in a Japanese movie. Or in the mystery movie, he was a victim.”
“Well, someone who was being attacked by a villain?”
As they talked about other movie, Seojun was slowly becoming interested in the genre itself.
“What role will Seojun play?”
Seo Eun-hye, who heard the answer, she quietly put down her cell phone.
Lee Min-joon and Seojun, who were curious about the call with Choi Dae-man, snooped in front of Seo Eun-hye.
Seo Eun-hye had a half-absorbed look on her face.
“Mom, what’s my role?”
“Isn’t Seojun going to be a ghost? I thought it was a mystery movie.”
Was that so surprising?
Seo Eun-hye, who was looking up and down at Seojun, opened her mouth.
Asked by Lee Min-joon, Seo Eun-hye said again.
“The role of Seojun is going to be a shaman.”
“What’s a shaman?”
Will Seojun act as a shaman.
A child shaman?
Lee Seojun, 6 years old.
In this life, he had never seen a shaman on television, in newspapers, in fairy tales, or anywhere else.
This was his first time hearing the word shaman.
Seo Eun-hye printed the script she received from Choi Dae-man.
It wasn’t the entire script, but it was enough till Seojun’s comes out.
They also printed a file with the story of the child shaman set by Choi Dae-man.
“Do shamans wear clothes like this?”
“Yeah, it’s colorful, right?”
“Am I going to wear it?”
“…I don’t know.”
Meanwhile, Lee Min-joon explained to Seojun about shamanism.
When they searched the word shaman, there were a lot of pictures of people in colorful clothes while spreading their arms wide.
Seojun looked at the picture with a big frown.
“What are they doing?”
Lee Min-joon quickly changed to the next picture because he couldn’t explain it. It was a picture of a child riding a horse.
“Seojun won’t do this.”
They know without looking at the script.
Who would let a 6-year old child ride a horse?
The next picture was not easy either.
There was a dizzying afterimage of a shaman, probably taken while dancing like crazy.
Lee Min-joon sighed.
“Is this a dance?”
“It’s… it’s a religious dance.”
“It’s a way to defeat bad ghosts in a human body. It’s a dance that makes all the bad beings disappear.”
Lee Min-joon explained to the best of his knowledge.
Seojun blinked his eyes.
“What happened to the shaman?”
“A very strong god possess the shaman’s body. With that power, the shaman makes a miracle.”
“Isn’t there a bad ghost when you get in there?”
“…Help!” Lee Min-joon raised the white flag.
Seojun had fun teasing him, so he laughed.
He didn’t know the word “shaman,” but he felt like he knew what it was after hearing his dad’s story.
He thought, it was like a priest or like an archangel.
“Come on, Seojun. Shall we read the script?”
When everyone sat on the sofa, Seo Eun-hye slowly read the script.
The amount of the shaman’s scene was not long, but it was a very important role.
Seo Eun-hye’s voice, was soothing that it was like she was reading a fairy tale book before going to bed.
She asked Seojun.
“What shall we do? Do you want to do it?”
Unlike other script, there were lines and not only blankly smiling.
In addition, he will also appear at the climax of the movie.
“Okay, then I’ll call the director.”
Seo Eun-hye picked up her cell phone and called Choi Dae-man.
Seojun took A4 paper script down and went to next to his father.
Then, he climbed onto Lee Min-joon’s lap and sat down.
“Read it with me. I have to memorize the lines!”
Lee Min-joon, was surprised but he smiled and stroked Seojun’s head.
“Are you practicing already? Okay.I’ll help you.”
Seojun sat on Lee Min-joon’s lap and looked at the script with his father in it. He skipped the scene and background description and went directly to read what he needed to know, such as the narration where it was written what would he do and his lines.
“Su-hyuk knocks on the door. He can’t hear anything else. And…….”
“How many times did Su-hyuk knock? The squeaky door opens, and the child shaman will come out. Is Su-hyuk a dragon?”
“I heard there’s a brave shaman.….”
Lee Min-joon taught him part with consonant or difficult words.
Seojun slowly read the script down.
