An Daho left the office of the 2nd team behind and headed towards the president’s office. An Daho was also feeling bitter. He never thought Cocoa Entertainment allowed Seojun to contract a new company for overseas works.
“I also wanted to help during the Hollywood movie shoot… No. Let’s do our best even in Korean activities.”
An Daho, who tried to calm down, knocked on the door of the president’s office. When Seo Eun-Chan told him to come in, he opened the door.
“Did you call me, boss?”
“Yes, sit down.”
When An Daho lowered his gaze to sit on the sofa, there was a child sitting without any presence at all. If he didn’t look down, he wouldn’t have noticed him.
In the president’s office, besides Seo Eun-chan, the president, there was also Seojun. This surprised An Daho. He blinked several times before sitting down.
“Let’s put aside the introduction and start with the main topic; I hope Daho will follow Seojun’s overseas shooting.”
At Seo Eun-chan’s words, An Daho asked back.
Seojun and Seo Eun-chan smiled playfully.
“DAHO, we rewrote the contract”.
“Originally, if Seojun is active overseas, an employee from the King’s agency will take over as a manager, but now that we had rewritten a new contract, it is okay for Daho to manage Seojun as it is. Of course, you will get paid more.”
Seo Eun-chan smiled and said. An Daho opened his mouth, while still stunned.
“I saw you studying English.”
Seojun knew that An Daho, would always bring an English book whenever he brought him scripts.
Every time Seojun read the script or did his homework, An Daho, who just finished his work, was either reading an English book or watching online lectures.
On his day off he would attend an English academy. Sometimes he would also talk with Seojun in English. In their free time, they would watch movies without subtitles or read scripts written in English.
After the WTV Film Festival, An Daho would always focus on studying English.
“I know that too.Daho, you really work hard as Seojun’s manager.”
An daho’s face turned red. He knew that they already noticed it, but he was still embarrassed if they said it bluntly on his face.
Seojun laughed at his embarrassed face. He was proud that such a sincere and wonderful person was his manager.
“It would be easier for Seojun to work with Daho than the new one.The King’s agency will handle the other things. If you need anything while supporting Seojun, just contact the U.S. agency.”
An Daho was overwhelmed with emotions at the appearance of Seo Eun-chan and Seojun, who recognized his efforts. He closed his mouth and nodded one after another.
“Oh, I forgot to ask something first.”
Seojun and An Daho looked at Seo Eun-chan.
“Even if you refuse, you will really need to continue to work as Seojun’s manager. You haven’t gone all the way to the U.S. yet, right? Can you continue to help Seojun in the US, Daho?”
“Yes! Please leave it up to me!”
Seojun smiled at An Daho’s words.
“Please take good care of me in the US too, DAHO!”
“I will definetely take care of you, Seojun.”
In the end, Seojun and Seo Eun-chan saw An Daho shedding tears. They burst into laughter at the sight.
After a while, Sarah Lot contacted Seojun. Director Sarah Lot’s face was reflected on the laptop screen.
“Nice to meet you. I’m Sarah Lot.”
“Hello, I’m Seojun Lee. Feel free to call me Jun.”
Director Sarah Lot smiled and nodded at Seojun’s words.
“Jun, have you read the script?”
“Yes. I enjoyed reading it.”
When Seojun talked about what was good in the script, director Sarah Lot nodded one after another.
“Good. Jun, have you played the violin before?”
“A little bit in the past.”
He once learned to play the violin when he received from a Violin as a gift for his first day of school.
It’s already been two years and the time he spent learning violin was short.
For sports and horseback riding such as Taekwondo, he spent more time on learning it with his own ability because he thought it would be helpful when filming. However, he didn’t know that he would be shooting a movie with Violin as the theme.
“I spent more time learning piano.”’
“Do you want to practice before the shooting? You don’t have to play it perfectly. All you have to do is learn how to hold the violin, hold the bow, and learn the basic posture.”
“When will the filming start?”
“Practice I the first phase, so I think we’ll shoot the movie next year. Since there are outdoor shoots, shooting time would be between spring or summer when the weather gets warmer.”
It’s August now, so there are about nine months left. This was enough to practice the posture of playing the violin, so he had plenty of time.
“I’ll send you the score for the part of the performance we would be filming. And later when a violinist is recruited, I’ll send you how you will performan for the scene, so please get the timing right.”
Since then, Sarah Lot continued to explain. Seojun raised his ears and listened carefully.
“I’m thinking of requesting some songs to be composed, so I don’t have any score sheet prepared yet, but I’ll send it to you as soon as the music is decided. I want you to practice. Mm. Are too task to do many?”
“No, it’s okay. For script and memorization is easy, about the practice… Hmm that’s quite difficult but I will do it..”
If he practiced one song a month, he would be able to practice nine songs. In addition, most of them were short performances.
It would be easy to just memorize, but it would be easier to play if he could just found the right ability, for each music, from the library of life.
Sarah Lot nodded at Seojun’s words. Well, it would take a long time to play like a real violinist, but what she wanted for Seojun was a “good posture.”
“If it’s hard to memorize the placing of the fingers on the violin, you just need to get the bow up and down accurately. Your fingers won’t be noticeable unless we zoom in the camera on your finger. But if it is possible, can you memorize it?”
“And you will need to take lessons for about two weeks before the shoot starts. Can you come to America earlier? I will also call other child actors with violin performance scenes. I think it’s better to get closer to the other actors and learn together rather than practicing alone.”
“If there’s nothing urgent, I’ll make sure to come!”
“Okay. Then I’ll contact your agency as soon as the song comes out.”
Director Sarah Lot on the laptop screen hesitated a little and opened her mouth.
“Jun. Let’s make a great movie.”

First, Seojun had to find a teacher to teach me the violin. Seojun, who was thinking for a while about how to get a teacher, suddenly realized.
This must be a job for the agency.
Seojun contacted Seo Eun-chan in consideration of An Daho, who was working with Marine and King’s agencies.
“You want to learn the violin?”
“Seojun, didn’t you learn it a few years ago? I watched a few of your performances because my sister sent a video to me.”
“I remember doing pretty well on that too.”
Seojun answered Seo Eun-chan’s question.
“I have learned violin a little bit before, but I want to play it more naturally. I have to read the score and match the timing with the performance. It’s hard for me to do it alone.”
Seo Eun-chan, who was on the phone with him, rubbed his back. Seo Eun-chan had also read the script.There were quite a few scenes with Seojun playing the violin, but honestly, he thought Seojun would do well even if he learned it a little.
“All right. I see. Violin…….”
Seo Eun-chan was lost in thought.
“If it’s guitar or piano, I could ask singers that I knew, but since it’s violin…Wouldn’t Soo-hee know that field well?”
Seojun blinked at Seo Eun-chan’s words. Aunt Choi Soo-hee, he didn’t think about her.
Choi Soo-hee is the wife of Kim Hee-sung. She settled in Korea a few years ago after working as a pianist in Europe. Now she was teaching college students. Seojun quickly called Aunt Choi Soo-hee.
“Gu, gu, gu”
Seojun heard a baby’s voice across the cell phone. It was Kim Soobin.
Hearing Soobin chattering. Choi Soo-hee smiled and changed the call to a video call.
On the screen, Seojun saw a baby moving his head while holding a slime doll in his arms.
“Soobinie~ There’s is your Seojun hyung~”
With Kim Soobin small laugh, Soo-hee and fixed the camera towards Soobin.
Bright eyes, chubby cheeks.
Seojun couldn’t hold back his smile anymore. When his favorite brother showed a smile, Soobin also followed him.
“Soobin, Let mom and brother talk on the phone hmm~”
When Kim Soobin held the cell phone, the camera became dark. Voices could only be heard. Seojun spoke.
“Auntie, I can hear your voice well, so you can just tell me.”
“Hahaha. Okay. Okay. What’s going on?”
“Do you know anyone who can teach me how to play the violin?”
“Yes, my next movie is a musical movie. I have to play the violin. The filming will begin next spring or summer. The teacher could come two or three times a week and teach me until then.”
All of a sudden, Soobin became excited.
“Gwa gwa Me! Me!”
