Director Choi Min-sung and writer So Eun-jin of the KBC Monday-Tuesday drama “Re-Investigation,” which will air at 10 p.m. from next week, tilted their heads.
“Seojun wants to be a cameo.”
Director Choi Min-Sung and writer So Eun-jin looked at Lee Ji-Seok’s face with a blank face.
Why a cameo? There was a role that could be used for a famous child actor.
Then the director and the writer discussed with each other.
The main actor, Lee Ji-Seok, who was sitting next to him, said he would bring a good actor.
Anyone was fine. Really. He could even take an unknown child for the role. Lee Ji-Seok was strict in acting, so they believed in his recruiting skills, but… A Hollywood actor for just a cameo?
Director Choi Min-sung and writer So Eun-jin asked again.
What nonsense is this popular actor saying? Is today April Fool’s Day?
The two people who were asking for the dates shook their heads.
April Fool’s Day is already over.
Lee Ji-Seok smiled and stepped aside.
Shouting, a child appeared behind Lee Ji-Seok.
Director Choi and writer So’s eyes opened wide.
He was the current hot topic in Korea. How can they not recognize his face?
It was really Lee Seojun.
Really, the same Lee Seojun whom they watched at the movie theater!
Director Choi Min-sung, who watched Shadowman 2 four times, and writer So Eun-jin, who joined Seojun’s fan cafe, grabbed their heart.
Still, they couldn’t take their eyes off Seojun, who was smiling brightly.
Lee Ji-Seok laughed at the two meetings their idol.
“It’s my first time filming a drama, so I came for a field trip. Is it okay?”
“What? Oh, yes, yes. Yes!”
“It’s okay! It’s totally okay!”
The two people, who had been nodding at Lee Seojun’s question, suddenly came to their senses.
“Wait. Juice. Juice should be here.”
“Isn’t the juice too sweet? Is there be something to eat?”
“Oh, is that so? Then what should I give you….”
“First of all, let’s sit down.” Lee Ji-Seok said, looking at the restless two. They weren’t like this when he was young. Seojun is really amazing.
“Yes, yes. That’s right. actor Lee Seojun’s legs will hurt.”
“Isn’t the chair too hard? Cushion! Cushion!”
Writer So Eun-jin left the set in search of a cushion. Seojun and Lee Ji-Seok blinked.
The director left earlier to pick snacks. Only two people remained in the empty set.
“……I don’t need a cushion.”
“I think everyone likes you so much…”
Soon after, the two returned.
Writer So Eun-jin, who brought three vinyl-wrapped cushions, and director Choi Min-sung, who bought a lot of snacks and drinks as if he had bought an entire convenience store, put them in a chair near Seojun.
When Seojun sat on the cushion and drank orange juice, they looked at Seojun with an emotional look. Tears covered their eyes.
‘Be happy. Jin Natra!’
The two came to their senses when Lee Ji-Seok coughed. Producer Choi Min-sung and writer So Eun-jin cleared themselves by slapping their cheeks.
“Oh, you were talking about the cameo.”
“Of course, I’d appreciate it if actor Lee Seojun would appear.”
“But it’s a role that only comes out once. Is it okay?”
Seojun replied with a nod.
“I’ve read all the parts where my cameo part will appear from Ji-Seok’s. My mom and dad said it would be entertaining, and I also enjoyed reading it.”
They say it sounds fun!
Writer So Eun-jin held her hands tightly while celebrating inside her. ‘A Hollywood actor said my script is fun!’
“I think you are a good director because I enjoyed watching the drama you did back when I was in the U.S.”
Producer Choi Min-sung covered his mouth with his hands. ‘He watched my drama! He said I am good at directing, too! I felt like I became a successful fan.’
Lee Ji-Seok shook his head as he saw the two thrilled people.
“Ji-Seok, who is good at acting, is the lead, so I decided to be a cameo.”
Lee Ji-Seok, who was scoffing at the two, soon took back his words. ‘Seojun said I’m good at acting!’
Seojun, who impressed the three with his words, drank juice as if nothing had happened.
The praising time, which seemed to have last for a long time, quickly ended. This was because staff members began to appear on the set one by one for filming.
“First of all, let’s hide actor Lee Seojun until the shooting.”
“You can call me Seojun.”
At Seojun’s words, the two became more thrilled as they were privilege to call him casually.
“Of course. Will Seojun be with Ji-Seok’s manager? That would be better, right?
“You can say I am Ji-Seok’s nephew.”
“Yes, I got it!”
Seojun wore the hat he had worn before and ran towards manager Yoon Sung-oh, standing in the corner while checking Lee Ji-Seok’s schedule.
He didn’t know that the eyes of PD Choi Min-Sung and writer So Eun-Ji would follow Seojun’s back.
“I know. How can he act like that with such a cute face?”
“There’s a reason why people say he is a genius.”
“Ji-Seok! You’re really incredible. How did you bring actor Lee Seojun? No, Seojun?
Lee Ji-Seok said with a smile at PD Choi Min-Sung’s question.
“You heard the reason earlier. I’m sure that’s true.”
The two, who thought it was just a compliment, if not an empty word, asked with a surprised face.
They were happy with a compliment even if he didn’t mean it, but he was serious?
“If he didn’t like the script and directing, he would have just refused my request. That’s how much he like acting.” Lee Ji-Seok shrugged and said.
“Seojun appears in this drama because he finds it fun. Then you can brag about it to others. Thanks to you, an actor named Lee Seojun became interested in the drama.”
The eyes of the two got bigger.
Lee Ji-Seok laughed. He thought while watching Jin Natra of Shadowman 2 work with Seojun again. It doesn’t matter if it was a movie or a drama.
“If there is another script that he likes, maybe he will act again for you.”
The eyes of producer Choi Min-sung and writer So Eun-jin sparkled.
If only Lee Seojun appeared, anyone would invest, and any broadcasting station would schedule it during prime time. It was clear that his fame would allow their drama exposure.
The three adults whispered as if they were formulating a secret mission.
Yoon Sung-oh, who was watching the scene, shook his head.
They want to film with Seojun again!
It was what Lee Ji-Seok wanted ever since he watched Shadowman 2.
Seojun was sitting next to manager Yoon Sung-oh and looked around the set.
“This is how drama shoots are.” Lee Seojun said quietly.
‘Which snack should I eat?’ Seojun, who was agonizing over his snacks, turned his head and saw manager Yoon Sung-oh sitting next to him.
Yoon Sung-oh smiled.
Lee Ji-Seok wanted to know why Seojun was not filming the drama, but Yoon Sung-oh decided to ask it personally.
“Seojun, why aren’t you filming a drama?”
Seojun opened his mouth while rolling his eyes.
“I don’t have a script that I like. In addition, it’s always a similar role, so I don’t think it necessarily suits me.”
Seojun, who finished choosing snacks, opened the wrapper. When the bag of snacks was neatly torn off, Yoon Sung-oh applauded for his skills.
“If you like the script, you will be going to appear in the drama, right?”
“Yes, but why are you asking?”
“Ji-Seok thinks you’re not interested in dramas.”
Seojun, who was chewing snacks, shook his head. ‘It’s not like that.’
“He wants to film with you again, but he always thought you only like movies. So if you appear in a drama, the range will increase, and the probability of working together will increase.”
“Can’t he just ask me?”
When they saw Lee Ji-Seok entering the set after finishing his makeup, Seojun said it without realizing it.
Lee Ji-Seok, wearing a police uniform, waved at Seojun. Seojun also shook his hand.
Yoon Sung-oh laughed.
“He can’t force you to appear in a Drama you don’t like at your disposal. Also, he may not like the movie that you choose. Even if it is a coincidence that you both choose the same movie, he really looks forward to that happening.”
The rehearsal has begun. Looking at the set where people were moving, Seojun listened to Yoon Sung-oh’s words.
“I know Ji-Seok will definitely refuse what he doesn’t like. If he doesn’t like it, he’ll definitely reject it. However, I think that if such rejection accumulates and accumulates, soon there will be an invisible gap between you two. That’s how people feel. I understand how you feel, but I’m a little disappointed. And eventually, you’ll get farther away. Ji-Seok doesn’t like that.”
Seojun nodded. He didn’t know he was thinking like that. He also wants to shoot with Ji-Seok again.
“What should I do then?”
“Well, I have no choice but to be lucky. Even if the two of us secretly manipulate, Ji-Seok will feel guilty if even he finds out. He will suffer for no reason because of his greed.”
“Ji-Seok’s thoughts it’s too complicated.”
“Ahahaha. He is just a delicate person.”
Producer Choi and writer So gave a gesture. They were going to shoot now. To attract Seojun to act in the dramas, the three decided to show Seojun the best scene from the script.
Yoon Sung-oh, who temporarily became Seojun’s guardian, stood up at their gesture to come there.
“You just have to keep acting like you normally do.”
Yoon Sung-oh said.
Seojun looked up and saw Yoon Sung-oh.
Yoon Sung-oh, who has been a manager next to Lee Ji-Seok for five years, recalled Lee Ji-Seok and Seojun’s similar eyes.
It was the eyes of actors who liked acting, longed for acting and loved acting.
“Ji-Seok will never leave the acting industry. He will continue to act even when I am 10 or 20 years old. You feel the same way, right?”
“Yes, he is going to do it for a long time.”
“If we act in the same place for such a long time, there will definitely be times when we meet in the same work. Isn’t this a small world?”
Yoon Sung-oh, who was talking, burst into laughter. Come to think of it. This was a small world than he thought.
“Both of you might get tired of it later, saying, ‘Why are we working again together?'”
“Ahahaha. That’s true.”
Seojun also laughed at Yoon Sung-oh’s words. Unlike now, when child actors play few roles, this may really be the case when he grows up and starts playing adult roles.
“What? Why are you laughing?”
Lee Ji-Seok, who was checking the script for the last time before filming, asked the two smiling people, but they both shut up as if they had compromised.
