Seojun’s search for his next work continued.
“You don’t have any lines for this. What do you think?”
Seojun tilted his head at the question of An Daho. Although there were no lines for the child actor, it was a popular play last year.
“Hmm. Is there anything else?”
“Okay. Let’s find others.”
At Seojun’s words, An Daho immediately put down the script. An Daho sighed inside.
There were not many plays with child actors, but will there be a play that eventually Seojun would like?
‘I need to tell the company to look for more.’
Seojun and An Daho sat next to each other and looked through the scripts diligently.
After a while, the doorbell rang.
Seojun was about to get up, but An Daho got up instead and headed to the intercom.
The conversation continued for a while, and the front door opened.
Kim Hee-sung went to visit him.
Seojun smiled and welcomed Kim Hee-sung. Kim Hee-sung reached out his hand to An Daho, while carrying Seojun.
An Daho quickly held and shook his hands.
“Hello, I’m Seojun’s uncle, Kim Hee-sung. You’re Seojun’s manager, right?”
“Yes, I’m actor Lee Seojun’s manager, An Daho. I look forward to your kind cooperation!”
“Please take good care of Seojun.”
They met without Seo Eun-chan’s intervention, was he lucky?
After the greetings, Kim Hee-sung sat on the floor of the living room familiarly, while Seojun and An Daho sat in their seats.
“What brought you here, uncle?”
“I was wondering if you have a new design.”
“Yes! I’ll bring my sketchbook!”
Seojun gave Kim Hee-sung a sketchbook full of monster drawings and played with him from time to time.
Kim Hee-sung slowly browse the sketchbook, while Seojun and An Daho began reading the script again.
‘This is unbelievable!’
Seojun’s drawing skills improved day by day.
The pictures were so realistic that they could be already used for a product design presentation.
After he looking at the picture again, he looked up. He saw the other two people immersed in reading scripts.
Certainly, browsing pictures was faster than reading.
Kim Hee-sung, who finished his work in just 10 minutes, took one of the scripts from the pile and asked.
“What’s this? Drama or movie?”
“No, they are scripts for plays!”
Kim Hee-sung tilted his head and brought the script closer to read it.
After turning a few pages, there were lines highlighted.
‘Even if this are for plays, can I read them?’
“This are the child actor’s part, right? There are only few lines.”
“It doesn’t matter, as long as I like the script I would do it.”
After an hour of sitting and reading, Seojun put his head down on the table while, his hands and eyes were still facing the script.
‘Sigh. Ah, what should I do? When will I find a better script?’
Kim Hee-sung, who was reading the script, shrugged and picked up his cell phone.
“Is there any notice posted on the internet?””
“Yeah. I would always browse with my mom, but they are age limit. Daho-hyung already found plays for me that has no age limitations.”
“Yes. Team 2 helped me chose popular plays where Seojun could act and without age limitations.”
At An Daho’s words, Seojun, who was drooping, and Kim Hee-sang, who was searching on his cell phone, turned their heads towards him and looked at his face.
An Daho was surprised and went restless by the gaze of the two people looking at him.
“Is there something wrong?”
At the words of Seojun and Kim Hee-sung, An Daho knelt down without realizing it. Cold sweat flowed behind his back.
He replied while stuttering.
“Yes. For actor Lee Seojun’s filmography, we have collected plays that are likely to become successful. Considering all the conditions, including good actors, famous directors, and famous writers…….”
An Daho slowly lowered his voice towards the end. Something seems wrong.
Seojun looked at the script he had already read three times.
He realized that there were many remakes of previous plays or translations of famous foreign plays.
Kim Hee-sung laughed at An Daho, who went restless at Seojun’s droopy appearance.
He didn’t seem to know anything about Seojun yet.
“DAHO, what did the boss say?”
“The boss? Because Seojun wanted to act in a play, he told me to find suitable scripts and send it over.”
It was not wrong, but it seems Seo Eun-chan’s explanation was insufficient.
Perhaps the Team w, which is dedicated to actor Lee Seojun, wanted a box office hit like Shadowman 1, The Devil, and Shadowman 2.
Well, even if it was Kim Hee-sung, he wouldn’t want something that could ruin Seojun’s Filmography.
“I don’t care about box office hits. Daho-Hyung.”
An Daho was surprised and looked at Seojun.
“I want to do what I want to do rather than having a box office hit. So please give me all the scripts that I want next time.”
Upon hearing Seojun’s words, An Daho replied sullenly.
“Okay. I’m sorry.”
“No! You don’t have to be sorry! I just want to act in various roles regardless of box office success. But of course, please don’t include scripts that you think would fail.”
“What about this?”
Kim Hee-sung intervened between the two apologizing to each other.
Colorful announcements was on the mobile phone screen.
An Daho’s gaze became gloomy.
“It’s a play for only children and teen actors. There are no adult actor, and the performance would only during the summer vacation. Also, age doesn’t matter either.”
“I saw that too, but I don’t think it’s a play that Seojun would be in….”
“Uncle, do you have the script?””
At Seojun’s words, An Daho saw Seojun’s eyes sparkle.
‘It really has nothing to do with box office success?’ An Daho’s eyes were quite confused.
“It’s up here. Look at the amount of lines and characters. You can even write down the roles you want play on the application form.”
“Uncle, pick one for me!”
Kim Hee-sung familiarly headed to a printer installed on at the corner of the living room. Seojun stood next to Kim Hee-sung and waited for the script to be printed out quickly.
An Daho felt out of place.
While working in the entertainment industry, he met many actors who were always looking for works that seemed to be a big hit.
If a famous actor appears, a plus.
And if a new actor appears, a minus.
If a good director directs a plus.
And if a new director directs a minus.
Neither the writer nor the production company were different.
The same thinking was true for Cocoa Entertainment’s second team.
Everyone thinks like that so they only looked for scripts full of Plus.
But was this kind of play okay too?
The script was soon printed out from the printer.
As soon as the script came out, Seojun read the script one by one while standing.
He reached out and collected the paper from the printer one by one, but he couldn’t take his eyes off the script.
Kim Hee-sung sat down with a satisfied face.
At the natural appearance of the two, An Daho hesitated and opened his mouth.
He could see why President Seo Eun-chan said he would introduce him to a person named Kim Hee-sung.
“What should I do to support Seojun from now on?”
That was a good question.
Kim Hee-sung knew something on Seojun that the couple would never understand.
“First of all, Seojun doesn’t do anything he doesn’t want to do. But if there is something he wants to do, he will push through and never give up.”
Kim Hee-sung recalled his past eight-month experience with Seojun.
Despite the frustration of failing to have a villainous acting he never gave up and eventually achieved it in the end.
He really admired Seojun’s dedication.
“Only a few people know this story, but Seojun practiced only one script for eight months before shooting Shadowman 2.”
An Daho’s eyes got bigger.
“Yes. That happens if Seojun want to do something. Also Seojun don’t care about box office success. If he likes it, he will do it.”
Right now, he thought he should let team 2 stop looking for box office script.
An Daho took out his cell phone.
“Well…If you excuse me, I will just make a phone call….”
“Yes, It’s fine”
Then he went to a corner and made a phone call.
Team 2 that heard the story from An Daho and sighed.
Their CEO didn’t inform them the most important thing!
‘First of all, except for the ones that I think I’ll fail…… No, I will send everything except for works that have problems with the director or the production company.’
‘He will accept a children’s musical too? Then we will search for it!’
The team 2 became noisy again, while Seo Eun-chan, who was in the president’s office, felt his ears becoming itchy.
“I want to do this!”
Seojun, who had read the whole scripts, raised his head with an excited face.
An Daho immediately took out his notebook, and Kim Hee-sung asked Seojun some questions while eating the snacks he bought.
“Really? What role do you want?”
Unlike An Daho, who tilted his head, Kim Hee-sung nodded.
Seojun’s face, regained excitement.
Kim Hee-Sung thought about Seojun, who would always be with some monster dolls ever since he was a baby.
Perhaps, the source of Seojun’s acting skills was when he was playing with his monster dolls. Back then he would usually perform puppet show with the dolls he gifted him.
“I knew this day would come someday. I thought I’d only act in Hollywood fantasy movies, but I can’t believe this day has already come.”
Seojun excitedly talked about the plot. An Daho focused on listening to Kim Hee-sang and Seojun, but he was quite confused on why the Blue Dragon.
“You’re not the main character. It has an impact, but I think the amount of lines is less compared to the other roles.”
