Commercial plays and commercial movies are different. If they wanted a guaranteed box office, they’d cast well-known idols.
Seojun could submit an audition application casually and be immediately hired.
But this was a play for children.
Despite the fact that they would cast kid actors in their first Children’s plays, they were not as well-known as Seojun.
Every child who applied to the Milky Way Troupe would want to be the main character and receive attention.
As a result, Seojun became discouraged and eventually gave up.
“That’s true.” The three also nodded. It was obvious what would happen if it was promoted under Seojun’s name.
People would say: “I can’t believe I’m seeing Seojun’s acting right in front of my eyes.”
Shadowman fans especially those who pity William or Jin Natra would definitely watch him.
To experience Seojun’s vivid acting in front row!
“I know. Isn’t it possible for me to apply using a different name?”
“Ray” and “X” flash across Seojun’s memory.
The individuals in the cartoon did not identify him despite his name change and mask.
It’s not just in cartoons. This is a common occurrence in films and other entertainment programs.
“You want me to use an Alias.”
“It’s a fake name.”
“Yes! An alias!”
Kim Hee-sang ‘tsked’ his tongue in response to Lee Min-Joon and Seo Eun-Hye’s statements.
“Seojun is well-known in South Korea. What’s the point of using an alias?”
“… Aren’t you going home? What time is it now?”
“Ah hahaha. A stage name it is. Stage name. Many celebrities also use stage names.”
Seo Eun-Hye stopped complaining, and Kim Hee-Sungng smiled awkwardly.
Seojun had a gleam in his eyes.
The next day.
Regardless of the box office success, An Daho welcomed Seojun, who quickly went to school and extra classes, and carried a large number of scripts and synopses with him, allowing him to discern between difficult and not-so-problematic works.
“This is what we picked out.”
“Yes, thank you! By the way, Daho.”
Seojun slowly brought up the story his mother, father, and Hee-sung had with his uncle last night. An Daho nodded politely and paid close attention to what was being said.
“So I thought it’d be nice to go with a stage name.”
An Daho scratched his head. He was proud of Seojun for thinking about the children he would appear with.
But as an actor’s manager, An Daho should be the one who attentively considers difficulties and solutions.
“It is not a problem, but do you want to do it, Seojun?”
“Let’s submit the application under your real name. You will pass anyway so everyone would still see Seojun’s face. The people over there should know who you are.”
“Oh, that’s right.”
“Should we write the application form together now?”
An daho unfolded his laptop, and Seojun sat next to An daho.
The venue for the children’s play was the Milky Way Center, which is one of the largest theaters in Seoul, it would be a test site for child actors this year.
Perhaps because it was his first attempt, he also received child actors who appeared in TV or movies.
After the deadline for applications had passed, the first round of document evaluation commenced.
More children and parents applied than expected, so an employee went to inquire and many people is actually aiming the position of “second Lee Seojun.”
Thanks to the gathering of employees from other teams, the document review, which had been conducted without any problems, was overturned by just an application.
Director Park Ji-soo, in charge of the direction, was still in shock.
“I can’t believe he want to have an stage name for Blue Dragon role, where only his voice would come out.”
“What should we do, Director?”
Director Park Ji-soo, who was looking down at the application with a frowned face at the question of the supporting director, raised her head.
“First of all, he’ll audition. There is no reason why actor Lee Seojun cannot come out because we are not trying to make money from this play and it is a play for children. Besides….”
Director Park Ji-soo looked at the history written on the application form.
“If he is an actor with this kind of history, other children who act with you will learn something.”

The audition day for the children’s play [Spring] has finally started. Seojun headed to the Milky Way Center with An Daho.
Seojun sat on the car seat and fastened his seat belt on his own. An Daho checked Seojun’s seat belt before went to the driver’s seat and sat down.
Seojun asked, looking around the car that will be Seojun’s foot in the future.
The gleaming and silky appearance mesmerized him. ‘It’s a lot better than our car!’
“Daho, is this a new car?”
“Yes, the president bought a new one for Seojun.”
Seo Eun-chan and the staff of the second team gathered together to choose the strongest and safest car. Everyone was delighted and picked out a car when the boss told him not to worry about the money.
Despite the fact that he wasn’t going to drive it alone, just looking through the catalogs and picking out a vehicle gave him a sense of accomplishment.
“Until when will I sit in the Kids’ seat?”
“Seojun, you’re not 145cm tall yet, are you”?
“When you grow up, you won’t be able to sit on the Kids’ seat anymore. There’s still a long way to go for Seojun.”
Seojun nodded, rattling his feet.
An Daho drove safely. Vehicles that tried to overtake them were deterred by Seojun’s flashy ride and eventually slowed down.
Seojun’s car soon arrived at the Milky Way Center. Seojun sat quietly in the car seat until An Daho parked in the underground parking lot and opened the door.
“You can put it down now.”
Only then did Seojun untie his car seat belt and get out of the car at An Daho’s words.
Seojun and Andaho took the elevator to the first floor of the Milky Way Center.
On the first floor.
“It’s not him.”
The last day of the audition for the children’s play [Spring] and the day of the audition for the role of Blue Dragon.
Since earlier, the eyes of the employees who came to work have been fixed on the elevator. Each time they heard the familiar ding-dong, their attention was immediately drawn to that location.
When the door opened, and they saw someone who looked like a child with their, they would lift their heads up looked at the child.
If it is a girl with long hair, they would quickly notice that it is not him, but if they don’t see the boy’s face correctly, they would keep looking at the child.
When an employee who is in charge of checking the children’s names shook his head, everyone began to do their job again with disappointment.
“Doesn’t the audition start now?”
“When everyone comes we will start.”
Everyone stared at the elevator at the employee’s words.
Just in time, the elevator went down to the underground parking lot.
He is now here!
Ding-dong. It’s on the first floor.
Slowly, the elevator door opened, and the child and guardian appeared. The child’s face was not seen by deeply pressing the baseball cap with a silver badge, but everyone guessed.
The staff checking the number of people ran quickly.
“He is more normal than you think, right?”
“That’s right. Honestly, I thought Lee Seojun’s aura would come out even if he just stood. “
That’s what happened before Shadowman 2.
“Actor Lee Seojun?”
An employee who came to help with the audition tried hard to hide his nervousness and checked the list. And he handed over the number tag to Seojun.
“This is the audition number. If they call your number later, you can come out in front.”
“Yes, thank you.”
The employee looked at An Daho and said. An Daho nodded.
“You can go right after the audition.” I’ll let you know the results later.”
“This is where you are going to wait.”
The staff showed An Daho and Seojun the props room, after that he guided them in front of a large door.
A tightly shut door was opened by the staff. An enormous stage and large audience were seen behind the wide-open door.
