Everyone buried themselves in their chairs. They wanted to move away from the blue dragon as his face took the whole screen. His big and sharp eyes blinked.
[So loud!] (TL: the previous line was ‘You are too noisy’. They change it in order to show the arrogance that a Dragon should have.)
The voice of the child-like blue dragon rang.
Somewhere in Seojun’s body showed some blue dragon scales again, and his hearing, was enhanced for several times. Seojun’s ears could even hear the audience breathing.
[You are too loud!]
Seojun shouted as if he had become a real young Blue Dragon, or the same hatchling Blue Dragon, the owner of the ability.
“Blue Dragon! Help me!”
[I can’t help you! I don’t have my magic pearl!]
“This! Is this your magic pearl!”
[My magic pearl! Thank you! I’ll grant you a wish!]
“My wish is…”
Some children, who are still unable to distinguish between reality and story, jumped out of their chairs and shouted while holding the Magic Pearls above their heads as if they were Spring.
“Please give me a lot of pocket money!”
“Please let me eat pizza tomorrow”.
“I want to go to an amusement park!”
At the sudden situation, the audience was in confusion. Choi So-young wondered if she should continue her lines. However, in that brief moment, Seojun, whose ears could clearly hear their words, smiled and said.
[Good! Anyone else has a wish?]
At the playful voice of Blue Dragon, the quick-witted music director lowered the volume of the background sound.
Calm music was played in the theater, and the children, encouraged by the words of the Blue Dragon, made a wish with their magic pearl.
The children, who did not buy a Magic Pearl, rolled their feet in envy as they saw their friends excitedly making their wishes, hoping that it will come true.
“Please let my mom get better soon!”
“Please don’t let me attend summer classes tomorrow!”
Children’s wishes came from all over the place. The voices of adults muttering them to stop from time to time, were also heard in Seojun’s ears.
The voices of the children, who were mumbling, calmed down and the eyes of the Blue Dragon turned towards Spring.
[How about you?]
“I have a wish, too! Please let the rain fall on my hometown!”
[Good! I’ll listen to your wishes!]
Ahahaha! It began to rain with the laughter of the blue dragon.
The curtain on the stage went down, director Park Ji-soo, staff, and children rushed towards Choi So-young and Seojun.
“Both of you did a good job!”
“I didn’t think you’d say that! So-Young and Seojun, I thought the stage was going to be ruined!”
“It’s all because Seojun’s initiative.”
Choi So-young gave credit to Seojun for the compliments coming from the adults and their friends. Well, unlike her, whose mind went blank at the sudden situation, it was Seojun who continued the play with an ad-lib.
“You did great this time too.”
At that time, it was really great that she grasped his intentions. Seojun did not proceed with the story anymore, but she still answered his ad-lib appropriately.
“Both of you did a good job!””
Starting with director Park Ji-soo’s applause, everyone applauded the two actors behind the stage. Seojun felt warm in his hearts as he saw his colleagues praising him.
Oh, this is so nice.
Children finished removing their makeup and changed their clothes. They gathered in the practice room. After reviewing what happened on the stage, they decided to meet in order to plan for the next stage.
“Should we also add the Wishing part for the next performance?”
“Let’s talk to the director and the music director!”
“Should we change our lines a little bit?”
Thus, the lines of Blue Dragon and the characters changed little by little at the opinions of the children.
Sometimes a child-like blue dragon, sometimes a grandfather-like blue dragon, and sometimes a real god-like blue dragon. Various blue dragons variations were the suggestion by the children.
Contrary to the friendly backstage, the Milky Way lobby was in a worst situation than before the performance.
Before the performance, children who passed by the stands without much thought, began to beg their parents as soon as they saw a blue shining Magic Pearl.
“Dad Magic Pearls! Buy me some!”
“I want to make a wish, too!”
When his mom and dad gave up, they would bought him magic pearl. He could now go towards his friends excitedly and show them his magic Pearls. Among those children, there was the same child who asked for a car.
“Blue Dragon! Please grant my wish!”
“We will comeback to see you again! I still have a wish to make!”
With the support of the children, the magic pearls was constantly being sold.
The three friends who criticized Kim Soo-Han and his friend on why they were buying some Marbles, went in line behind the small childrens to buy the magic Pearls.
“Hey, really. I don’t know what this feels like.”
“Right. I know it’s a fictional story, but it feels like the legend really exists.”
“I don’t know if the blue dragon would grant my wish or not, but if there was a real dragon, it would feel like that.”
Everyone seemed to have the voice of the Blue Dragon still remaining in their heads. He became more nervous just by thinking about it.
“By the way, did you see this?”
Kim Soo-han was holding a pamphlet. From Choi So-young as the main character, Spring, to the actor’s photo, name, and age of the extra character were also written he pointed to one of them. It was a photo of the painting of the Blue Dragon with a small description written below it.
[Blue Dragon, Najin/8 years old]
“That’s the voice of an 8-year-old?”
In addition to the students, adults who read the pamphlet also looked alternately between the age and the picture.
“Is he a genius?”
“……there are many talented people these days.”
“But this was a little different from the first play.”
“The blue dragon looked like a grandfather on the first day, but this time it was like a child.”
“There’s that, too, but I also liked it because I was also immersed from the beginning.”
“It’s fun because it’s a play, not a movie or drama that’s definitely edited.”
“Will the next Performance will also be different?”
After hearing the conversations of their friends who watched the first performance, the other three also decided to come again and watch the next performance. They were also thinking of inviting other class mates.
Soon, some Jooyoung High School students looking for cheap and worthy plays for their vacation homework, gathered at the Milky Way Theater.
* * *
“It was so much fun!”
Seo Eun-Hye and Lee Min-joon smiled at Seojun’s words.
These days, Seojun would always be excited after coming back from the theater.
He also marked all the date of his play on the large calendar.
The same was true for the other children.
“My dad likes the grandpa’s blue dragon.”
“Mom like the child blue dragon.”
“I like them all!”
The performance “Spring,” which changes a little every time, had a large audience since then show. There were even some dates where the tickets were sold out.
The show was really a successful one, he could tell because from time to time there were people who would come and ask for autographs.
First of all, he used Najin’s autograph, but he really wanted to do it under the name of Lee Seojun later.
“I heard the seats are sold out these days”.
“Yes! There’s no empty seat!”
A review was posted on the Internet after the third play, in which the audience had a separate time to make wishes.
[Title: Please watch the children’s play “Spring”]
Make sure to watch the children’s play “Spring” at the Milky Way Theater!
It’s a really cool play.
In particular, if my child does good things after watching the play, the magic pearls held by the Blue Dragon would be given.
If you collect three of them, the Blue Dragon would definitely grant your wish, so my child work harder on this than collecting compliment stickers.
Thanks to the play, he eat well, clean up his toys, and read books. These days, he is only looking for books with Blue Dragon, but there aren’t many on libraries.
Of course, if the wish is too hard to grant I would say, the Blue Dragon won’t be able to fulfill it either. I often used the Blue Dragon just to let my child behave well. I’m sorry, Blue Dragon.
There were many children watching the play these days, perhaps thanks to the reviews posted on Mom Cafe, but somehow word of mouth also spread among students, and many teenagers and adults would also watch it these days.
The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, were the most excited about the sold-out record every day. They would always distributed the data to reporters ever since.
