Everyone burst into laughter at Seojun’s avoidance, and Seo Eun-chan hoped that Seojun’s answer would not reach the ears of his sister and brother-in-law. An Daho, who was watching it behind the President, shook his head.
After the Q&A, the time that everyone had been waiting for came. The chair was take out, Choi So-young and Seojun stood facing each other.
Lee Da-jin held the microphone and told them the rough plot about the play. Everyone watched VOD because they were Seojun’s fans, but they still listened to Lee Da-jin’s voice.
This was the first and last acting where Seojun and Choi So-young stood face to face. It would always been Seojun behind the wall while So-Young was on the stage.
‘He was more amazing during the performance than during practice. We can’t show it to the fans. It’s a bummer, but he is still amazing during practice.’
When Lee Da-jin’s explanation was over, Choi So-young acted her lines.
They were an empty stage without stage decorations, or props, so it was difficult to immerse herself, but she did her best.
She was most confident in this role.
“Blue Dragon! Blue Dragon!”
Seojun opened his mouth while holding the microphone in front of everyone. Neither the hair nor his eyes color changed. There were also no horns and no scales.
[Hatchling Blue Dragon’s aura]
But his skills are still the same!
[Thank you! I’ll grant your wish!]
Fans trembled at Seojun’s voice.
It was different from when they watched the VOD. Of course, the VOD was still impressive, but Seojun’s acting in person seemed to make his whole body cry through the speaker. They understood why the high school student watched the same play eight times.
It was a pity that they couldn’t even watch the play in person, but it was a relief that they came to the fan meeting.
There seemed to be a cool wind blowing somewhere. Fans who were still in the mood woke up.
Lee Da-jin smiled brightly and said.
“Isn’t it amazing? It’s my first time seeing an actor who acts well like Seojun.”
“Seojun is a Genius!”
Seojun bowed and sat down.
Lee Da-jin read the cue card.
“Unfortunately, part 1 ends here. Let’s take a break for a while and continue in a while. Everyone, please wait a little bit.”
Thanks to the notice issued in advance by the Cocoa Entertainment, everyone leaned comfortably on the chair. They didn’t want to miss any of Seojun’s actions, so they focused hard and felt stiff all over their necks.
Some took out their cell phones and posted reviews of the first part of the fan meeting, and some took photos.
“Wow. It was amazing.”
Lee Mi-yeon, a fan of Brown Black and a fan of Lee Seojun, spoke to the person sitting next to her. Kang So-ra, a fan sitting next to her, nodded.
“There’s a huge difference between VOD and his acting face to face.”
“But that badge… is really cute.”
“It’s a bit expensive because it’s custom-made, but I’ll send you a picture, so you could ask it to be made.”
Lee Mi-yeon looked at Kang Sora’s badge. It was from Seojun’s first Advertisement, which was stopped to be broadcasted now due to image quality and regulations.
It was a badge engraved with the baby Seojun’s photo at the time of filming.
She couldn’t take her eyes off from the vivid cuteness even when she saw it walking on the street.
“Oh, I guess this is the snack.”
Fruit lunch boxes came over and were distributed to each fans.
Lee Mi-yeon opened the lid of a fruit lunch box. They were seasonal fruits. They were all sliced and mixed up.
“The fan meeting ticket was cheap, but they gave snacks and later they will also give Seojun’s autograph. I know that the rental fee here is expensive, but it’s really that they did this.”
“They are not doing this to make money.”
“If they were doing it to make money, they wouldn’t have added a part of the play in the event.”
It was the first time they met, but the two enjoyed talking to each other. Someone appeared on the stage while continuing to talk about movies and dramas starring Seoju. There was some time left before they re-start.
Kim Soo-Ryeon came up to the stage.
All the fans, who were busy chatting to each other other earlier, returned their gaze toward the stage. Team leader Kim Soo-Ryeon smiled slightly at the sight.
“I’m Kim Soo-Ryeon, the head of Cocoa Entertainment’s public relations team. I wanted to share good news with you, so I came up on stage like this.”
The fans were confused.
Cocoa Entertainment was turned upside down by the news from the United States a while ago.
An employee of the company delivered it to Kim Soo-Ryeon, and Kim Soo-ryeon delivered it to Seo Eun-chan, the president.
Seo Eun-chan did not understand until he searched several times on his cell phone..
Kim Soo-ryeon, the head of the public relations team, continued.
“This is a fact that even actor Lee Seo-joon does not know yet. I just got a call. I really want the fans to deliver it to actor Lee Seojun.”
Fans swallowed their saliva at Kim Soo-Ryeon’s excited but serious expression. The loud and spacious concert hall became quiet.
On second thought, this was very thrilling. He remembered the voice of an employee shaking but delivering it as if he couldn’t believe it.
“Lee Seojun has been nominated for the notable actor award at the WTV Film Festival in the U.S.”
Soon there were murmurs from all over the place.
The U.S.? WTV Film Festival? Awards? Candidates?
Slowly, the fans were understanding each word and opened their mouths wide.
Team leader Kim Soo-Ryeon continued to speak seeing the expressions of fans who roughly understood.
“Of course, the winner has not been decided yet, but it’s great to just be nominated as it’s an overseas film festival. Please deliver it to actor Lee Seojun later on.”
Overseas film festivals!
“I thought he’d get it someday! But I didn’t know it was this fast!”
“If it’s an overseas movie this year, it’s that, right?”
“He deserves it!”
The concert hall has become more noisy than a while ago. Fans’ cheers were delivered to the waiting room where Seojun was located.
Seojun, who was putting sugar on the chocolate milk, tilted his head.
Choi So-young and Lee Da-jin also filled their stomachs with sandwiches and juice.
“What are they talking about? Is there problem?”
Stylist and staff, who had already heard the news, all smiled as they watch Seojun.
Squeeze- Seojun, who was drinking his chocolate milk, opened his eyes.
‘No, they are hiding something.’
When he look at them, they only know how to fake their work. Some was on their cellphone, others were fakely talking and some run away.
‘This is really weird!’
“Hey, Seojun! A lot of fans are here.”
The easiest prey came on its own. Seojun smiled broadly at Seo Eun-chan’s appearance.
Everyone was shaking their heads when they noticed it.
“Uncle, you’re hiding something from me, right?”
“What? What… No…” Seo Eun-chan was clearly avoiding him.
Seojun turned his head around and stared at Seo Eun-chan. He has already told Kim Soo-Ryeon to tell his fans that Seo-joon doesn’t know. He can’t afford to tell it to Seojun now.
“What is it? What is it?”
“Seojun, you have to go on stage now.”
Seo Eun-chan, who was being questioned, was saved thanks to An Daho at the good timing. He breathed a sigh of relief.
Seojun did not take his eyes off from Seo Eun-chan as he went out of the waiting room in the hands of An Daho.
‘How many times did I have a hard time because of uncle today?’
Seo Eun-chan continued to sweat from being stared by his nephew.
“I’m going to watch you. Uncle.”
Seojun grinded his teeth slightly.
“Ha ha ha. Good luck.”
The door of the waiting room was closed. Choi So-young and Lee Da-jin, who had already been outside, also smiled broadly at Seojun as they already heard it from the staff.
‘I don’t think it’s a bad thing.’
Seojun headed to the concert hall holding An Daho’s hand, looking at Choi So-young and Lee Da-jin.
“What’s going on?”
“Hmm. Something really good. The fans will tell you soon.”
When Seojun appeared on the stage, fans shouted without any signal.
Seojun held the microphone. His lips naturally got pouty.
‘Everyone knows and I’m the only one who doesn’t know!’
“Uncle CHAN, DAHO, and others hid something. Do you know that? Am I the only one who doesn’t know?”
“What is it?”
“Congrats on your nomination!”
Seojun tilted his head at the congratulations from all over the place.
He couldn’t hear well because words were clumped together and very jumbled.
Seojun asked again.
“Congratulations on what?”
“Look behind you!”
When Seojun turned around, a site appeared on a large screen.
Lee Da-jin’s voice was heard. The voice from the speaker was bright, cheerful, and clear. It was stuck on Seojun’s ear.
[Congratulations on being nominated for the 39th WTV Film Festival’s Notable Actor Award]

That was the only thing Seojun could say as he looked at the site where his picture was embedded.
