Having a big star within their crew, left the staff confused.
What? Is this true? Is there perhaps a hidden camera filming this?
Director Choi Dae-man, who saw the noisy staff, coughed awkwardly and introduced Seojun.
“This is Lee Seojun, he will play the role of the child shaman possessed by the evil spirit. I look forward to your kind cooperation.”
“Hello! I’m Lee Seojun!”
As soon as he said his hello, the staff has been in disorder yet again.
“Kyaaah so cute!”
Most of the screams came from Marine’s fans.
“I’ve watched Shadowman three times!”
“Three times!? I’ve watched it about ten times!”
Everyone gathered around Seojun.
But they couldn’t step any meter closer as Kim Hee-sung and Choi Dae-man was standing next to Seojun, acting as bodyguards.
Everyone looked at Seojun with admiration. They couldn’t believe the child actor from Marine’s movie will act in their movie!
It was a very strange feeling.
Seojun was also excited to see people’s eyes shining because of him.
He never felt this before because he would only go home to and daycare center. Having people admire is really good.
‘I feel like I am on the right track to become a star.’
At that time, Seojun found the staff holding something among the many staff members.
It seems like they wanted autographs as they hurried to find any paper they could take like paper tissue, crumpled paper, and even the back of the script.
Holding the papers and pens, everyone was only looking at the director Choi Dae-man. Choi Dae-man, who noticed the intention of the staff, looked at Kim Hee-sung, Lee Seojun’s guardian.
Even though there isn’t many staff, wouldn’t it be hard to sign all of them?
In fact, Kim Hee-sung had no idea.
Seojun already knows how to sign an autograph.
Seojun recalled practicing hard with his mom and dad.
‘Let’s do it for the people that liked Seojun!’
When Seojun opened his mouth, everyone became silent.
“You want me to sign an autograph?”
Everyone answered altogether.
One of the staff ran to take a box and brought a pile of clean paper and a pen. Another staff member brought a desk and a chair.
At the audition, Assistant Director Cho, couldn’t get his autograph due to the director’s beaming eyes.
Lee Ji-seok, the main actor of “The Evil Ghost,” also lined up.
Everyone was happy to get Seojun’s autograph.
Choi Dae-man sighed and opened his mouth.
“Please keep it a secret that Lee Seojun will appear in this movie.”
“Why? It’ll be a lot of publicity!”
The Choi Dae-man shook his head at the staff’s response.
It’s been a month since Shadowman went down from the cinema.
The news about Seojun was also decreasing.
However, if it was known that he was preparing for the next movie, it would be on the real-time search keyword immediately.
The title was also expected.
[The Hollywood actor chooses to act in a Korean movie!]
“If it is known now, there will be a rush of reporters on the set, so the filming will be delayed. You don’t want to stay up all night filming because the schedule is late, do you? His scene will be done in a few moments.”
“And the production company is already preparing the movie promotion, so please keep it a secret. You all signed a confidentiality contract, didn’t you?”
Come to think of it, they remembered signing the contract a month ago.
They thought it was just about the movie, but it must have been about Lee Seojun. The staff, who tried to post it on SNS, gave up.
“Don’t even let your family know. If you keep this secret until the movie is released, there will be a bonus!”
As expected, of the power the word ‘bonus’ can bring.
“The contract is not the perfect solution,” assistant director Cho said, and suggested a bonus.
Then the staff pretended to put a zipper on their mouth.
In the meantime, Seojun continued to sign autographs.
He grabbed a black pen with his small hand and wrote his name hard.
It was finally the last one.
“Hi, Seojun. My name is Lee Ji-seok.”
“Hello, senior! I am Lee Seojun.”
The day before coming here, Seo Eun-hye and Lee Min-joon agonized over what title Seojun will use when referring to his older co-actors.
(TL: Koreans has a culture that younger people should call the older one with a title)
It was because Seojun was too young, and all the actors he met were older than him.
If he calls them older brother or sister from the beginning, some people might think he was being arrogant just because he acted in a Marine’s movie.
The couple asked Seo Eun-chan for advice. Seo Eun-chan said “senior” is the most comfortable title.
It was more of a career-oriented title than age.
He then gave advice that comes from experience, saying, “It gets complicated when I know their ages.” Perhaps, the couple, who assumed it was Kevin’s story, and laughed.
So Sejun decided to call him ‘senior’ and ‘teacher’ when he is older.
Lee Ji-seok laughed. It was funny to be called senior by a little guy.
“Just call me brother.”
“Yes! Jiseok-Hyung! Should I sign, in Korean or English?”
“Can you speak English already? You’re just six years old.”
“I learned from reading the script that my mom and dad’s help me with.”
“Well done! Then, I’ll ask a sign in Korean.”
“Yes, wait a minute.”
Seojun wrote down the letters with his hand.
As soon as everyone got their own autographs, they resumed working again. Along with the assistant director, Kim Hee-sung and Seojun headed towards the blue gatehouse where they decided to stay while filming.
Assistant Director Cho opened one of the doors. Inside there was flower-patterned blankets and pillows prepared by the caretaker of this house.
“The Grandma went to work in the field. This would be your waiting room. There are blankets and pillows. The bathroom is over there. You can take anything out from the kitchen refrigerator if you’re hungry. This is the contact information of the staff and if you need anything, please contact me. The scene where Seojun comes out will be filmed at sunset, so take a good rest before that time.”
“Sleep tight so that Seojun doesn’t get sleepy during the shoot.”
Director Cho left the room and Kim Hee-sung opened the blanket.
“Aren’t you tired after riding the car for a long time?”
“A little bit?”
“Then will you take a nap? Let’s get a good night’s sleep, eat dinner, and go to the shoot.”
Seojun went straight into the flower-patterned blanket. He put his head on the pillow under the soft blanket. He didn’t mean to, but…
[Summer Bear’s hibernation is triggered]
He fell asleep as soon as he put his head on the pillow.
Even at Kim Hee-sung’s call, Seojun slept well.
“Were you that tired?”
Kim Hee-sung smiled and arranged Seojun’s luggage.
The sun has set.
It was time to get ready for the shoot.
Seojun, who woke up after a nap, had dinner prepared by the grandmother who came back from the fieldwork.
“Is it good?”
Seojun slept so soundly that he put in a mouthful of rice and side dishes and chewed them well.
He started shooting an eating show from 8 months old and became a master of eating show.
The Grandmother and Kim Hee-sung also scooped up a spoon of rice at the sight of Seojun eating very pleasantly.
After dinner, Kim Hee-sung and Seo-joon talked about the monster drawing on Seomun’s sketchbook until the staff called them out.
“It’s darker than this, but the crayons are 24 colors, so I colored it like this.”
“So this color is enough?”
Kim Hee-sung showed the color of one of the color tags from his cell phone. Seojun nodded.
“Next, it’s this. What’s this? Fur?”
“It’s a feather.”
Seojun explained slowly.
Kim Hee-sang listened carefully and wrote down some notes.
“Yes, come on in.”
A staff wearing a hat quietly opened the door and made eye contact with Seojun, who was busy explaining while drawing on a sketchbook.
“Are you up already?”
“Perfect! It’s time to shoot. You can come over there.”
