Lee Ji-seok quietly approached to surprise the two actors, but he was the one surprised and looked at Park Do-hoon.
“People may not recognize me because my face has changed a lot since I was young. If you watch my works back then carefully, you could see some similarities.”
Park Do-hoon, who ate the chocolate Seojun gave, continued.
“When I was young, I initially played the child role of Jungwoo. This was a historical movie.”
He closed his eyes and recalled what had happened before.
“I wasn’t the only child actor who auditioned for that role back then, but the directors decided that the character Jungwoo suited me very well. There may be other reasons, but I did a great job. But the role initially given to me, was taken away.”
Lee Ji-seok intervened in the story of the two actors.
“You’re the only one who thinks like that. Do-hoon you did a good job. It’s hard for a child with no acting experience to play a character with a completely different image from you usually did. Considering that… you did a great job. The problem is that the movie’s production company went bankrupt so they accepted money from those who wanted their child for the role.”
At Lee Ji-seok’s words, Park Do-hoon smiled quietly.
“I heard many, um, bad words from actors and directors in that movie. Those words greatly affected my self esteem and after that, I became obsessed. I wanted my acting to be more perfect. I analyzed the character in detail and paid attention to it from fingertips to toes.”
Kim Jong-ho, who came with Park Do-hoon to the crew, did not just watch the actor ruin himself. He helped him overcome his past.
Kim Jong-ho met several actors like him and had more experiences.
Lee Ji-seok also got to know Park Do-hoon through Kim Jong-ho’s introduction.
Park Do-hoon’s acting was really cool. Seojun remembered the stern appearance of King Sejong during the coronation ceremony.
He also recalled King Sejong at the funeral.
Park Do-hoon may still looked nervous with a script in one hand, but when when he started filming, he immerse himself with the character as if he was never nervous.
But is that really normal?
It was a pity that Do-hoon could not praise his own acting that everyone acknowledged.
“It’s my first time telling someone this story. I feel at ease when I’m with Seojun.”
Seojun felt responsible at Park Do-hoon’s words. He felt like he had taken care of his older brother, who is 10 years older than him. Why is that?
“Let’s start filming!”
Filming began again.
The staff went away from the set, and Seojun breathed in and knocked on the wall twice with his fingers.

* * *
Seojun’s praise poured out as the filming of My clinic continued. Park Do-hoon suddenly questioned why Seojun continuously praise him.
‘Did he thought I was pitiful? Is he complimenting me because I’m really good? Or, are is he lying for me?’
Seojun came to watch the filming after school today. He waved his hand, Park Do-hoon also waved his hand.
A month after the filming of My clinic began. Do-hoon, who had only greet him shortly, could now wave back at him and even have a short conversation.
Seeing Seojun greeting him with a big smile made Do-hoon overthink that even more. Will Seojun praise him even if he is not good at acting?
Park Do-hoon, who was thinking of messing up like an adolescent child, began acting
Everyone moved at director Choi’s voice. One NG was nothing special. Everyone prepared for the re-shooting without much thought. Looking at Park Do-hoon coming out of the set, PD Choi Min-sung just said as if passing by.
“Hmm. Do-hoon. Can’t you make it more natural? I think you exaggerated a little while ago.”
“Oh, yes. I see.”
Everyone didn’t care much, but Park Do-hoon came to his senses at his reaction. Deep inside, he screamed at himself.
He was not a child who will cause trouble just to get attention from his parents, but he still committed it.
He could feel Seojun eyes looking at him. He wanted to ignore it, but his feet automatically approached Seojun.
Seojun thought about it. Should he compliment an actor with a difficult past for always doing well? But the previous shoot was not good. He could see that Do-hoon didn’t do it properly.
There was silence between the two. Seojun wondered if he compliment or not, and Park Do-hoon was anxious.
‘I don’t know why I get restless waiting for the words of a 10-year-old child.’
“Let’s do the next shoot properly. Fighting!”
“Okay. I’m sorry.”
“You don’t have to be sorry to me. It’s the staff who are working hard. I don’t know if other noticed it but you intended it a while ago.”
There was nothing to say because it was right. Park Do-hoon, who was intimidated by Seojun’s words, filmed again and got an OK at once. After the shooting all the people on the set decided to eat out for dinner.
“For the second time, you did well.”
Seojun, who was eating pork belly grilled by Park Do-hoon, praised him. Park Do-hoon smiled at Seojun, who never stopped praising him. An Daho was away for a while, and there were only other two people on Seojun and Park Do-hoon’s table.
Today, Do-hoon learned that Seojun’s compliments were not false and forced. Seojun really praised him because he was good.
Only then did Park Do-hoon talked about what he had been hiding for three weeks. Seojun, who was listening, was surprised and looked at Park Do-hoon.
“You’ve been watching that?”
“Yeah. I thought there was something to learn from it, so I asked for a copy and got it. Be careful not to leak it.”
Park Do-hoon took his cell phone deep from his bag. There was a video of Prince Seongnyeong and Heo Yoo-seon meeting for the first time. It was already three weeks since the filming of that scene.
“At first, I felt guilty for not being able to act like that, but as I watched it, I felt relieved. I felt like I could rely on you.”
“Yes. I realized it now, but I couldn’t trust anyone at that time. Jong Ho’s words and Ji Seok’s words. They said I did well, but it didn’t seem sincere. I thought that I should cheer up and do well.”
Seojun listened carefully to Park Do-hoon. Perhaps, sensing Seojun’s sincere attitude, Park Do-hoon also continued talking comfortably.
“But as I kept watching the video, I relied on Prince Seongnyeong in the video. I was just smiling, but I confessed my worries without realizing it. Isn’t it amazing? When Seojun was filming, I sometimes felt that feeling, so I felt at ease.”
Seojun also thought about why Park Do-hoon feels an unexpected weigh of responsibility.
‘Hmm. Why do I responsible whenever I see Do-hoon?’
“It’s because of mu ability.”
The dignity of the young lion king. Ordinary people would only feel dignity as Seojun intended, but it had a greater effect on Park Do-hoon, who has a very weak self-esteem.
‘In addition, Do-hoon is a perfectionist, it should affect him a lot. How often did have I met him?’
“Seojun’s acting was so cool. I really wanted to learn.” Park Do-hoon shyly said.
“I watched it everytime I feel like my acting is not good.”
In short, Park Do-hoon have become part of a group under Seojun’s control.
Park Do-hoon, a member of the group, leaned on Seoju, and Seojun, the king of the group, was responsible for taking care of Park Do-hoon.
I never thought there was this effect on ‘[The dignity of the young lion king].’
It wasn’t even written in the description.
Is this fate? What kind of weak-minded person can watch Seojun’s video whenever he has time and continue to hear Seojun’s compliments?
“That was the beginning.”
A weak-minded person needed someone to rely on. In the meantime, Park Do-hoon has not found such a person. That’s why he pushed himself more towards him.
He had a great influence on Lee Do-hoon. Park Do-hoon unknowingly relied on Prince Seongnyeong because of the dignity of Prince Seongnyeong overwhelmed him as if he were looking for God.
Seojun’s praise, which was poured out every time he met Park Do-hoon always came at a good timing.
Just as parental praise is the best for a child, nothing is as supportive as the praise of the existence he relies on.
Seojun’s praise became the light to Park Do-hoon’s desolate heart. Thanks to the light, Park Do-hoon found relaxation and his acting improved. With his improved acting, Park Do-hoon was able to have a little confidence in himself.
“Now I can trust what Jong-Ho and Ji-Seok said.”
Even now, of course, he would still feel nervous But there was hope.
Seojun smiled broadly at Park Do-hoon’s face, which started to loosen up.
“Good for you!”
“I think so, too.”
The “group of young lion kings” created by Seojun and Park Do-hoon alone will not last long.
Once Park Do-hoon’s mental strength becomes stronger, he will naturally get away from the dignity he felt from Seojun.
“I really appreciate it. Seojun.”
Park Do-hoon would never forget the child who had visited him on the filming site for weeks and continue praised him. Seojun smiled brightly at Park Do-hoon’s sincerity.
[The dignity of the young lion king is evolving]
The roaring lion pattern on the back of his hand glistened.
