It’s still a bit chilly in the morning.
Opening ceremonies are now being held in every elementary school across the country.
Seojun will be attending Plum elementary school, and he is now heading to his school with his mother and father.
No one recognized Seojun except for his kindergarten friends and parents, whether it was because he was taller or he became ‘normal’ due to the balance between light and black mana.
‘He’s handsome. Is he a model?’ Many people were whispering these words as Seojun pass by them.
In response, the couple and Seojun breathed a sigh of relief. Praising Seojun beauty means that they didn’t recognize him as the Hollywood Child actor.
The ceremony in the auditorium ended simply to match the short concentration of the children.
Seojun’s section is class 2 of Grade 1.
Outside the room, parents were standing in front of the windows to watch their children. Meanwhile, their children were sitting on their desks with their names on them.
(TL: Korean School often has lower grade rooms on the first floor so parents can see them through the window.)
“Seojun! Your sit is here!”
As Seojun was looking where his name was written, there were already other children calling for him.
“Hi. Mina. Hi, Jiyoon.”
“JIHOO and JIHO are also in our class.” (TL: the pronunciations are Jihoo=Jihu, Jiho=Jiho)
Luckily, all the friends he made when he was a baby were also here. Also, it seems that their sitting arrangement is near to each other.
As Seojun was talking excitedly with his friends, where the topic of their conversation was his unicorn doll attached to his backpack, suddenly the door opened, and the homeroom teacher came in.
The homeroom teacher called each students’ name and let them introduce themselves. After some time, the school hours are already finished.
“See you tomorrow!”
After bidding goodbye to his teacher and friends, the first day of school is now over.
Seojun headed to his grandfather’s house as he held his mother and father’s hands.
His grandparents and parents decided to gather together and celebrate Seojun’s first day of school.
His mom and dad stopped by a cell phone store on their way to his grandfather’s house and bought a smartphone for Seojun.
Kim Hee-Sung even prepared a cell phone case with several monsters on it as a surprise gift. Now it has become a perfect cell phone for Seojun.
While registering the phone numbers of acquaintances, the couple said to Seojun.
“You have to answer my call. And do not let your parents worry about you. Call us if you feel something dangerous happens. If we don’t pick up, call your grandparents or your uncles. I even registered Brown Black’s phone numbers.”
“I even installed KakaoTalk. Should I try to send a message?”
“I’ll do it!”
Seojun awkwardly grabbed his cell phone and sent a message.
There are as many KakaoTalk chat heads as he got many friends on Kakao.
He sent messages each in either Korean and English.
<Hello, I’m Lee Seojun
I bought a smartphone!
This is my phone number! Please register it please.ㅇㅅㅇ 🙂 >
“I was thinking about whether to do an English or Korean one. Anyway, I did both!”
* * *
“My grandson is already going to school!”
“This is your grandfather’s present.”
“This is your grandmother’s present.”
Seojun smiled brightly while hugging the gift boxes. His grandfather whispered. ‘I’ll give you a separate birthday present later.’
When he returned home after eating a lot of delicious food from his grandparents, there were congratulatory messages from many of his acquaintances.
“Nara told Jonathan, Jonathan told Ryan, and everyone got to know, right?”
“When did Nara get close to Jonathan?”
Seo Eun-Hye shook her head.
“Everyone sent me a birthday gift and Fist day of school gift.”
“Ohh. We would be expecting a lot of packages in these few days.”
Like Lee Min-Joon’s assumption, gifts arrived from American acquaintances, Brown Black, through Cocoa Entertainment, and gifts from Lee Ji-Seok and Choi Dae-man arrived.
Seojun looked up at their living room full of Gift Boxes.
“All of them are mine?”
“Yeah, it’s Seojun’s.”
The couple thanked them for the gifts piled up in the living room, but they sighed on their own. In particular, the presents of Nara and Kevin were the scariest.
“You should also add Rachel’s gift on that category.”
Kevin and Nara sent professional violins and guitars. The Hollywood actor Rachel Hill sent an expensive electronic piano while Evan sent books related to movies.
Each person’s gift showed their individuality.
“Will you learn how to play an instrument? Violin and guitar are quite difficult, but I think it would be okay to learn piano by watching some videos.”
“Or you can attend some classes.”
“Hmm. I’ll think about it!”
Seojun’s fan cafe decided to donate instead of sending birthday gifts to Seojun.
Lee Min-Joon and his wife posted a ‘thank-you message on his fan cafe, and everyone replied that they were looking forward to Shadowman 2.
* * *
It was still cold. However, the breezy wind of spring is now approaching.
It is already mid-March, and Shadowman 2 is now released.
“The poster is cool.”
Kim Hee-sung saw a poster posted on the wall.
Seojun’s mom and dad are spending some alone time together. Kim Hee-sang decided to take charge of babysitting Seojun.
A poster of Shadowman 2 was posted on the wall, with the main character facing elsewhere.
“Seojun, how was the present?”
“Vampire badge! My friends were really jealous.”
“I was interested in metal crafting this time, so I made it. I heard that the red eyes were quite scary”.
“My friends said that it was scary, but it was still cool to see it sparkle.”
Kim Hee-sung and Seojun were whispering to each other as they were here in the movie theater lining up to watch Shadowman 2.
“If they find out Seojun is here, it’ll become a mess.”
Seojun and Kim Hee-sung sat in an empty seat.
They were quite early before Shadowman 2 starts. Seojun wanted to hear people’s opinion so begged Kim Hee-sung to arrive early.
“As expected, he’s a hero! They say that he was with Evan Block sightseeing.”
“No, it’s weird because they filmed it so openly. Is he being a villain a surprise?”
“Even if William is a villain, what’s the point of filming with Shadowman in a friendly way?”
“That’s true, but…….”
Everyone was curious about William’s position.
“I am more curious about why William, who was sucked into the wormhole, was on Earth than that.”
“That’s true. What happened to him?”
“I’m curious about why.”
Soon, the door of the theater opened. The staff began to guide the next audience.
“The 4th Hall! If you want to watch Shadowman 2, please come in!”
Seojun and Kim Hee-sung joined hands and headed inside the theater.
Park Sung-won followed the two.
His small height was also noticeable among many visitors.
‘Even a child like this is coming to watch the movie. But, I think I’ve seen him from somewhere.’
However, when people sat in their reserved seats, all their thoughts disappeared.
It was because Shadowman 2, which they had been waiting for nearly two years, finally started. The audience’s hearts were pounding.
After the advertisement, the theater became darker. Park Sung-won waited for Marine’s logo to come out.
Even if it was only the logo, they were already excited about the movie.
However, the colorful logo that Park Sung-won expected did not come out, and the screen turned black.
And music came out from the speakers throughout the movie theater.
It was heavy and depressing music that seemed to hit their heart.
Later, it was the music to be used as an OST for Jin Natra.
The black screen brightened, and black shadows moved. It clumped and fell and moved actively like a black flame.
They heard a laugh. The sound filled the movie theater.
Park Sung-won swallowed his saliva.
‘What? Did they play the wrong movie?’
And they heard the child’s sobbing voice. They don’t even have time to guess whose voice it was.
Marine’s logo appeared.
Mac’s part-time job today was to be a tourist guide around Central Park. Thanks to diligent tourists, Mac, who had been guiding from the morning, met a child.
A voice was heard from somewhere in the movie theater, “Lee Seojun!” Despite such noise, Park Sung-won focused on the screen.
The child, who seemed shy, had a mature and soft appearance. Park Sung-won recalled a picture of an angel smiling brightly from that appearance.
A smile came to his face. As expected, he is a hero!
It was time for his part-time job to end, and Mac decided to accompany the child throughout Central Park because it would be boring if the child stayed at the Center for a long time.
The two entered an exhibition hall after looking around the baseball stadiums, zoos, and art galleries.
When the subtitle came out, the audience held their breath.
