The play is now all over. In the future, there would be no more practice and no more performances.
The children, hugged each other on the back stage and started crying.
In the middle of the practice room, there were delicious foods such as pizza, chicken, and jokbal.
Tension eased and they have now calmed down their emotions.
The hungry children quickly began to fill their stomachs. Seojun, whose eyes are still red from crying, also took a piece of pizza and bit it.
While chewing pizza, Seojun thought.
Until now, he didn’t study how to properly use the ability. He just used the right ability in a fitting way.
But this time it was different. He acted like what the Hatchling wanted. In the play, many things resembled the life of the Hatchling.
Perhaps that’s why the Hatchling, who couldn’t grow because of his short life, felt like he grew during his acting.
Finally, Hatchling revealed his own dignity, not just copying his grandfather.
“Did Hatchling become the guardian dragon he dreamed of?”
The Hatchling pattern drawn in his neck sparkled as if it was telling it was satisfied.
If he looked down he wouldn’t see the pattern, but the blue light emitted was so intense that his eyes hurts.
He didn’t mean to, but he felt like he has solved the wishes of one of his many previous lives regrets in a cool way.
“I should go to the library when I go back.”’
Seojun munch the last slice of pizza in his mouth.
“But the Blue Dragon, don’t you think it just become alive?”
“I know. I saw it on the backstage, and it must have been really a surprised.”
Choi So-young, who finished her portion of pizza early and took a chicken leg, nodded one after another while biting it.
“The blue dragon felt like it was really breathing. It was minimal so I thought I saw something wrong, but it everyone felt that way, it must be real.”
“The stage director was also out of his mind and went to check. He screamed ‘We didn’t make the device like this.’ And he ran away.”
When Lee Da-jin imitated the stage director, the children burst into laughter.
Come to think of it, they didn’t see their guardians of staff except An Daho. Perhaps everyone were still unable to leave the stage.
“Did the Dragon became real?”
“That’s possible. There are so many unbelievable things in the world.”
Everyone nodded at the words of a child interested in UFOs. Then he narrated about the amazing things he had gone through.
The stage director, who was checking the Blue Dragon model, shook his head.
‘It wasn’t like this.’
He couldn’t believe it, so he hesitated to touch the model of the blue dragon that came down to the stage.
Director Park Ji-soo, who had been checking the recorded video, spoke.
“It was doing the usual movements in the recording video.”
“… So what we thought was really wrong?”
Director Park Ji-soo shrugged at someone’s words. People were speechless by his gesture.

After the Play was over, all the children went home.
And the time has come for the guardians to wait patiently.
The day of the last Performance, dinner.
At the same time, many posts were posted on SNS.
The fastest thing to get on the Internet were the acting school that had been waiting for so long for the press to click the post button.
[A child actor who acted with Lee Seojun, Choi So-Young!]
#Children’s Play Spring

#Children’s Play Spring #Hunter #LeeSeojun #Dajin #Hollywood
Along with the articles, photos, which were the clear evidence, were posted.
A photo of Seojun and many children eating ice cream and a photo of them playing around together. There was also a video of Seojun and the children practicing together were also uploaded.
At the same time, Cocoa Entertainment also distributed it’s own promotional materials. And within a few minutes, Seojun’s articles flooded the Internet.
[Lee Seojun’s next project was a children’s play? That was already over!]
[Stage name? Lee Seojun’s stage name is Najin!]
[Sponsored by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, planned by the Milky Way Theater, Children’s play ‘Spring’!]
[Lee Seojun’s voice only came out But his voice acting is at the top too!]
[Blue Dragon that you were looking for is Lee Seojun!?]
And reviews of the children’s play Spring began to spread here and there.
* * *
“Hey! This way!”
“Wait! I’m on my way!”
Kim Soo-han and his friends stopped by the PC room after watching the children’s play Spring. They were now playing games.
It was noisy in the PC room. Everyone held cup noodles on one hand and moved the mouse.
“Aren’t you the core? How can you not shoot every time?”
“You’re the one who can’t shoot.”
At Kim Soo-han’s words, his friends shook their heads. Eventually, Kim Soo-han died first and started surfing the Internet waiting for his friends’ games to end.
He went to the most frequently visited site and was looking at the posts without much thought, and somehow it was full of articles about “Lee Seojun.”
Kim Soo-han scratched his head and muttered.
“Is he filming a new Hollywood movie?”
Kim Soo-han clicked on the post with the most views. The content was not very long.
Lee Seojun, Children’s Theater, Spring, Blue Dragon Station, Najin, and stage names.
“Oh! I’m dead.”
“Wow, how can everyone die without killing anyone?”
In the meantime, his friends have also become noisy, perhaps because their games was now over.
Kim Soo-han’s hand moved by itself. He went towards the search toggle. He also looked at real-time search terms. He checked the articles and YouTube videos.
“Hey, why are you so nervous?”
“Did you cause any trouble?”
Kim Soo-han looked down at his hands at the words of her friends. The hand holding the mouse was shaking.
“The world must have become crazy.”
“I think you’re crazy”.
“… I am Jin… Lee Seojun… Is Najin…”
His friends tilted their heads.
“Who is it?”
“That blue dragon.”
“The one that Soo-Han likes?”
“But Najin is Lee Seojun?”
“Isn’t Lee Seojun Jin Natra.”
(TL: so he chose the stage name as Najin because of Jin Natra not because of its meaning. Well… I am very dumb😐. I forgot that Na in Korea also refers to Me, I and I am so najin was like I am Jin. But because it was introduced as stage name I overlooked at that fact.)
The voices of the whispering friends gradually lowered. Everyone saw Kim Soo-han wearing a strange expression.
“Are you okay?”
“Am I crazy? Najin is Lee Seojun. He played the role of Blue Dragon. Najin is Lee Seojun!”
Kim Soo-han, who got goosebumps all over his body, screamed. At the loud noise, people in the PC room looked toward Kim Soo-han and his friends.
Regardless of the commotion, Kim Soo-han wasn’t bothered by the gaze he was receiving. He was still processing his thoughts.
He recalled Najin, who was wearing a hat on stage. ‘He waved his hand at me…What? Me?!’
“I’ve watched the play for 8 times and now someone said that Najin is Lee Seojun! Look at this!”
What Kim Soo-han showed was clearly a picture of the main character of the play “Spring” they watched.
Choi So-young, Lee Da-jin and Lee Seojun smiling happily.
The pamphlet introductions of the actors in the picture were posted together. Choi So-Young, Lee Da-jin and Najin was the most noticeable.
[Najin / 8 years old]
-Wow. He is really unexpected!
-I’m Jin(Najin)? No way…… Jin Natra?
-Oh, I think so too.
The people in the PC room complained at Kim Soo-han’s words.
“What is happening over there? Is there an accident?”
“No it is just we are surprised because of Lee Seojun.”
“The child actor who entered Hollywood.”
Everyone started searching for Lee Seojun’s name.
“What’s wrong with him?”
In a little bit, here and there, many expressions came out from the mouth of the other gamers. And again, the students drew attention. Among them, there was a reporter who came out to investigate the actual condition of the PC room.
“… But you got his autograph under Najin’s name.”
“That’s more rare! Who could get Lee Seojun’s autograph as Najin?”
Kim Soo-han’s cell phone rang as his friends were chattering next to him.
Kim Soo-han answered the phone with a puzzled look on his face.
“Who are you? What? What?”
Friends who were discussing whether Najin’s signature was better or Lee Seojun’s signature. They heard Kim Soo-han’s trembling voice and asked.
“What? What’s wrong?”
“It’s Cocoa Entertainment.”
“What it that?”
“Lee Seojun’s agency…”
Then silence was all over the PC room. They could hear a rare sound from the games, but everyone closed their mouths and looked at Kim Soo-han and his friends dumbfounded.
