TL: Finally bought a new phone. Because this is Android, I can’t retrieve the data from my lost IOS phone. So I will be retranslating them😔. I will be doing 2 new chapters everyday to make it up. Anyway, there are still 10 chapters till the translator change. From chapter 100 it would be another translator, we will be seeing you again on chapter 150. Well, you may not notice it when we change translator because only Karnevale’s admin will appear as the author of the chapter.
The room has many drinks, snacks, and also a small bed where Seojun could relax comfortably. Seo Eun-chan made eye contact with Seojun and said.
“Seojun, tell me if you’re tired while in the fan meeting, you can ask for break time anytime. Got it?”
“It’s okay! I’m really strong!”
Seo Eun-chan disheveled his hair, while Seojun just laughed.
“Yes, come on in.”
At Seo Eun-chan’s words, someone opened the door and came in.
Seojun smiled seeing it was from a familiar face.
“We invited her to recreate the Blue Dragon Scene in front of your fans. And the MC is…….”
“Ta-da! It’s me!”
Lee Da-jin appeared behind Choi So-young. Several weeks have already passed since the play ended.
Their interview proposal decreased, while drama scripts poured out.
A proposal came from Cocoa Entertainment to the two people. They invited Choi So-young and Lee Da-jin for the Fan meeting and they happily accepted the proposal.
“I should be on V-LIVE”. (TL: V-LIVE is a platform used by celebrities to do a Livestream.)
Choi So-young and Seojun burst into laughter at Lee Da-jin’s words. The three kids met each other after a long time talked with a smile on what was so fun.
* * *
As time passed by, the theater was full of people. The fans waited for the fan meeting to begin with their face full of expectations.
“An MC will appear, right?”
“It’s hard to held a fan meeting alone.”
“I don’t know who would be the MC. I hope he is good.”
The fan meeting was a place where fans and celebrities get closer rather. There are cases where the MC just make things awkward between the fans and idol.
“Just like Hwang Yejun from Vevele. They might tell us a story about Seojun that we don’t know and force us to laugh at an inside joke.”
“Anyways, please. I want the MC with good understanding of the atmosphere.”
Everyone held their hands tightly and prayed.
When it was time to start the fan meeting, the stage brightened and someone appeared.
A girl stood on the stage. Everyone was puzzled by the appearance of the MC, who was younger than expected, and noticed that the girl was Lee Da-jin.
(TL: It is only revealed here that Da-jin is actually a female. In the previous chapters the author didn’t use a specific gender pronouns when referring to her, only neutral ones. In a Children Play, especially in Korea, the hunter role goes to Male ones that’s why I thought immediately that Da-jin was a male. Also Da-jin is a neutral name😐. Unlike So-Young.)
They were fans who watched from episodes 1 to 8 as well as the Behind the Scenes for several times.
“We don’t have to worry about chemistry.”
“She’s a really funny kid, too.”
Fans burst into laughter at the silly middle school student’s face.
“There are so many people here. Ah, I am not supposed to say this. Hello, I’m Lee Da-jin, the MC of actor Lee Seojun’s first fan meeting. I don’t know if you know me, but I acted in the same play with Seojun!”
Seo Eun-chan smiled while standing behind the stage.
“She is good.”
“There are a lot of people, but she is not nervous. She is good at entertaining too.”
At Cocoa Entertainment, the planning team leader, who plans events such as Brown Black’s concerts and fan meetings, judged as he watch Lee Da-jin.
Choi So-young and Seojun shook their heads at the words.
“Da-jin is just saying it without much thought.”
“That’s right, So-Young noona.”
“Yeah. I’m glad that she is like that. Otherwise, I’d be in trouble already.”
“But I guess Da-jin must be really excited.”
“She’s an attention seeker.”
While the two were whispering to each other, Lee Da-jin continued to speak.
“Are you all here to see Seojun? It’s been a while since you saw him. Then should we hurry up and call actor Lee Seojun up? Seojun! Hurry up and come out!”
Everyone burst into laughter at the way she spoke. Some fans followed Lee Da-jin and shouted “Seojun!”
Perhaps because it was a fan meeting of a child actor, it felt more cuter than usual fan meetings.
Seojun’s fans, whose heart was initially about to burst with anticipation, relaxed with at Lee Da-jin’s intro.
“Look. It’s totally different from the script.”
“Choi So-Young, hurry up and come out. Lee Seojun you will follow!”
“Noona, let’s hurry up and go. I don’t know what would happen next.”
The planning team leader felt he was stabbed in the back by Lee Da-jin’s start out of the script. While, Seojun burst into laughter at Seo Eun-chan’s absent-minded face as he led Choi So-young to the center of the stage.
When Seojun, who the fans been waiting for, appeared on a big stage. Everyone screamed.
“Kyaaah! So cute!”
Seojun turned on the microphone he was holding and bowed.
[Seojun! I love you!] Fans holding the banner were shaking their hands while shouting. While fans, who brought the monster dolls that Seojun likes, were waving the monster dolls above their heads.
Seojun’s heart fluttered at the sight of his fans.
“Hello, I’m actor Lee Seojun!”
When Seojun smiled brightly, the sound of being pain came out from all over the place.
Seojun’s face was also zoomed in on the screen installed behind the stage.
When Lee Da-jin, who noticed the screen, tapped Seojun. Seojun turned his head toward her.
Everyone burst into laughter when Seojun’s round back of the head was seen on the big screen.
“Let’s have fun today!”
Lee Da-jin picked up a square cue card. Choi So-young and Lee Seojun sat in their already prepared chair.
“First of all, I heard that Seojun is a good singer.”
“Shall we listen to your singing first first?”
Seojun stood with a microphone.
He don’t know what song will come out, but Uncle Chan said he knows the song well. It was clear that it was probably either Brown Black’s song or a famous song.
Music came out of the speaker.
Seojun was confused on why this song came out.
Fans burst into laughter when they saw the screen. Seojun turned his head and directed his gaze at the screen.
Characters that he watch a lot on TV were running around. The lyrics of the song were written below it.
‘Hey Tayo!’ was a theme song for a cartoon that was really popular among children.
Lee Da-jin and Choi So-young were already hitting the floor while tearing because they really find him funny.
Seo Eun-chan was covering his mouth as he resisted himself from laughing.
While looking at the people laughing around, Seojun casually opened his mouth to start singing.
“Hey Tayo, hey tayo!”
He sings well, but it can be seen that he was kind of pissed off. His anger was only toward one person. Seo Eun-chan shuddered with the cruelty pouring into him.
This was not a joke by Seo Eun-chan, but it was the most voted song on Seojun’s fan cafe.
Fans, Lee Da-jin and Choi So-young sang along. Seojun soon let go his anger and sang excitedly.
Well, it was a song that he often sang in kindergarten. It was a little weird to sing it as an elementary school student, but it’s fun to sing it after a long time.
Cheers poured out. Seojun sat on a chair while scratching his cheek.
“Next would be answering questions from the fans.”
A staff brought a box full of paper with questions on the stage. Seojun put his hand in and take out a piece of paper.
Lee Da-jin, who received the paper, read the question.
Some fans expected their questions to be selected, while others wanted to know Seojun’s answer.
Seojun answered each question sincerely. He felt the interest of the fans in each of the questions.
The meaningful question time was coming to an end.
“Oh, this is too much.”
Lee Da-jin, who read the last paper Seojun took out, shook her head.
Seo Eun-chan turned his head and look at the planning team leader. The planning team leader shook his head in a hurry.
“I filtered everything out.”
“But what kind of…….”
Lee Da-jin opened her mouth even before Seo Eun-chan could ask him.
“Who do you like more mom or dad?”
At the question, the fans burst into laughter.
Some were not too happy at the question, but it did not hide the tips of their lips going up. Among them, there were also people that wanted to know what would be his answer. Lee Da-jin and Choi So-young were also among those people who are curious about what would he say.
Seojun’s eyes fluctuated. Everyone couldn’t hold back their laughter at the sight of a young boy who looked like he was answering a college exam.
They wondered if this question was very difficult for Lee Seojun.
Once again, Seojun’s eyes was directed towards the backstage. Seo Eun-chan, who was giggling, caught Seojun’s eyes.
Seo Eun-chan, who felt like he had made eye contact with Seojun, immediately change his expression to a poker face, but Seojun had already seen him enjoying his suffering.
‘There’s no way my fans would ask me this question, so this must be uncle Chan’s fault!’
Seojun made such conclusion.
“Seo, Eun, Chan. Uncle is my favorite!”
“Oh! Not his mom or dad, but his uncle?”
“His Uncle must be really happy!”
