Seojun clenched his fist and headed toward the set.
Seojun stepped inside the well-decorated room of Prince Seongnyeong.
“Seojun sitting on a cushion across the room was like a picture.” The staff whispered from the background while looking at Seojun.
“I thought he wouldn’t go well with a historical drama, but he loos like a real prince from the Joseon Dynasty.”
“I know. This drama is going to be a hit.”
When everyone was whispering, the assistant director, who saw PD Choi Min-sung’s nod, raised his voice.
“Are you ready?”
Seojun and Lee Ji-seok answered at the assistant director’s words. In addition, the staff who were whispering to each other also shut their mouths.
PD Choi Min-sung liked filming quietly, this was a knows fact among the staffs.
He looked at the camera screens installed here and there and checked whether there was any flaw in the jade and the positions of the two actors.
Director Choi Min-sung smiled satisfactorily seeing that everything was perfect.
Seojun straightened his shoulders elegantly.
“Whoo.” He exhaled and started his ability that he found in the library of life. The pattern of the roaring baby lion engraved on the back of his right hand glistened.
[The dignity of the young lion king]
At a young age, he became king of lions.
His dignity as a leader has risen.
Activation: Tap twice with your finger.
The dignity of the young lion king.
The ability of the young lion was worse than that of any ordinary lions, but his “dignity” was beyond imagination due to that the young lion king lead the group.
He died because he was captured by humans.
“There are other abilities but…”
Seojun chose this ability, although he had a better and more comfortable ability to activate it. He was not a king who had to overwhelm his servants, but a young prince. He thought the dignity of a the young lion was enough.
Seojun put his hand on the table and opened the book.
Prince Seongnyeong, this Prince receive much love from King Taejong and the queen. He was a son born at their old age of 40, they really cared about him.
Perhaps because of his parents’ old age, he was born weaker than the other sons and they even felt more sorry for him.
Princess Gyeongan, the fourth daughter of King Taejong, died of an unknown disease. Because of her sudden death, king Taejong was worried about his other children and asked them to be checked by doctors.
In three days, the doctors took turns taking care of the king’s children.
And today, a new doctor appeared.
Kim Nae-Gwan, who was standing outside, announced the arrival of the doctor to Prince Seongnyeong, who was calmly reading a book.
Prince Seongnyeong closed the book and called the doctor.
Heo Yoo-sun lowered his gaze and bowed down.
Seojun tapped the table twice.
[The dignity of the young lion king is activated]
“Raise your head.”
Heo Yoo-seon slowly looked up to see Prince Seongnyeong, whom he already met for the fourth time. When he made eye contact with Prince Seongnyeong, he bowed his head again.
“I’m Heo Yoo-seon, a doctor in the clinic.”
Prince Seongnyeong smiled.
Producer Choi Min-sung’s voice rang loudly. Lee Ji-seok got up from his seat, stretching the back of neck. When he saw Seojun just now, he felt possessed by something. It feels like his head was naturally bowing down.
“What is this?”
Lee Ji-seok, who couldn’t shake off his uncomfortable mood, headed towards Seojun and the monitor.
An Daho and Yoon Sung-oh came towards them and handed hot packs.
The scene that he just filmed was being reviewed on the monitor. Everyone quietly looked at the monitor.
The aura from the small body of Seojun was just amazing. Prince Seongnyeong, who was smiling, was showing a prince dignity. While everyone was satisfied, only Lee Ji-seok said his thought.
“Oh, it feels a bit weak.”
“Hmm. I think your close-up shots will be different.”
Lee Ji-seok response at Seojun’s question.
Director Choi Min-sung prepared for the next shoot. The filming of the close-up shot was to coming up next
Seojun wanted to impress the viewers more. Even if he will not be appearing at the end of the drama, he wanted them to not forget him.
Seojun went up to the set alone and the camera director took the place where Lee Ji-seok was.
Lee Ji-seok smiled at PD Choi Min-sung, who was giving instructions here and there.
The close-up shot has begun.
Seojun acted like he did before and appeared on the monitor.
Everyone held their breath and only looked at the monitor screen.
Prince Seongnyeong was just sitting there straight. He was a perfect prince just now, they didn’t notice it earlier but the close-up shot really showed his dignity as a prince.
Would he have this kind of atmosphere if he were really born as a royal family and lived as a prince?
Watching the monitor they felt like thet had to bow down their heads on their own. They got goosebumps.
In particular, King Taejong, Kim Jong-ho, Queen Lee Ji-hye, and Park Do-hoon, King Sejong, who will be appearing til the end of the drama, swallowed their dry saliva.
They look at the face of Prince Seongnyeong smiling. The three actors recalled the scenes they filmed first.
‘How was my acting in the scene? Was my dignity as a royal worse?’ this were all the question they had in mind watching Seojun.
Lee Ji-seok smiled.
‘This is it! This is it!’ The atmosphere he felt when he acted in front of Seojun finally appeared on the screen.
He knew why he felt uncomfortable initially. It was because he wasn’t really acting back then. It was as if he had become the real Heo Yoo-sun, so he naturally bowed his head at Seojun’s appearance.
He felt like this when he acted with Seojun. Even back in the shooting of ‘The Devil’s and even now, he seemed to experience immersed acting everytime he face Seojun’s acting.
Anyway, it didn’t have much effect watching on the monitor but it still felt amazing.
Lee Ji-seok came to his senses early after noticing the prolonged silence, he slightly tapped director Choi Min-sung.
Choi Min-sung, who came to his senses, and shouted loudly.
The synergy between Seojun’s ability and excellent acting was really great.
Today, it was time to film Prince Seongnyeong and Prince Chungnyeong (Title of king sejong before he became a king) practiced their hunting skills.
Heo Yoo-seon, a doctor, was waiting to treat the two Prince quickly if they were injured.
Waiting for the set to be ready, Park Do-hoon and Seojun were waiting in their own chairs.
They felt good coming outside after filming on the set. The weather was warmer, so they were wearing light clothes.
Seojun hummed and rummaged through his bag.
“Do you want to eat this?”
Seojun took a snack out and give it to Park Do-hoon. It was a chocolate he made with his mom and dad. Park Do-hoon reached out to the poorly packaged chocolate.
Seojun also opened one and put it in his mouth. Eating sweet chocolate made him feel better. Park Do-hoon also smiled.
Somehow, Park Do-hoon’s awkwardness towards him seemed to have been loosened a little.
‘No, rather than being wary, he had gotten more relaxed.’
Seojun glanced at Park Do-hoon.
Usually, he wouldn’t pay attention to his surroundings because he was only looking at the script, but because she wanted to be friendly with Park Do-hoon he paid more attention to him.
He had been watching Do-hoon’s shoot, and he seemed to be a perfectionist. It wasn’t like Evan Block, which he calculate even how much centimeter he should raise his brow, but he really seemed to want his performance perfect.
‘Quite similar but different.’
Evan Block was confident. Confidence in the acting he calculated will be perfect. Even when watching the monitor after finishing his acting, he did not think his acting was wrong, although he would take his notebook to write a “better direction.”
In the meantime, Park Do-hoon’s short relaxation time ended.
Park Do-hoon took his script, and like Evan Block’s script, his script was filled with black ink with various notes. There were many Post-it was attached and various colored ballpoint pen marks remained.
Park Do-hoon read the script of the scene to be filmed today nervously.
Park Do-hoon really lacked confidence.
He couldn’t admit that he was good even after performing a great performance. Everyone said it was okay, but he would always find the “wrong part.” He would ask it to be reshoot to correct his mistakes.
‘It’s the same as Evan, but they are so different.’
Park Do-hoon had weak faith in his acting. This was different from Evan Block, who was very confident to himself.
Park Do-hoon was always nervous, reading the scrip and acting. Seojun felt like he was being chased by something.
“Do-hoon, you’re good at acting.”
If it were Ryan, Swarlin An, and Evan Block, they might give him a great advice.
No matter how much Seojun thought about it,bhe couldn’t think of any advice to give to Park Do-hoon.
His past lives were not very helpful to him at this moment. He mostly lived relying to his instinct to think about such delicate things.
‘In addition, if it was advice, Jong-ho and Ji-seok would have done it a lot.’
So whenever Seojun met Park Do-hoon, he praised him for being good. Compliments is a great way to boost a person’s confidence.
Park Do-hoon’s nervous face was a little relieved when Seojun compliments him about this and that.
Park Do-hoon sighed and opened his mouth.
“I used to be a child actor.”
