“The first movie I filmed was Shadowman. It was just a brief role as an extra, but I didn’t expect to receive this award ‘Noteworthy Actor Award!’ I will continue to improve my acting in the future. And my parents who support me whining that I want to act! Grandmother, grandfather, maternal grandmother, uncle Chan, uncle Hee-sung! I love you so much!”
Seo Eun-chan snorted with a tear, and Kim Hee-sang, who was watching from Korea, lamented at the fact that children grew up too fast.
Seo Eun-hye and Lee Min-joon couldn’t take their eyes off their sons standing on the stage on a large screen while crying.
“And director Ryan Will who casted me for Shadowman!”
Seojun lowered his eyes towards below the stage. Ryan Will, who was sitting at the Shadowman team table, waved at him.
“Evan Block, Rachel Hill! And Jonathan Will! Shadowman’s staff! DAHO! Cocoa Entertainment, everyone! Thank you, everyone!”
He heard a whistle. It was Jonathan Will, was sitting in the middle the audience. Jonathan didn’t expect his name to be called out. Some of the Shadowman’s staff sitting around Jonathan also cheered.
“And all the people around the world who voted for me. Korean fans! Thank you so much, everyone!”
Applause erupted from the whole audience. Seojun, who was trying to go down with the trophy, stopped because he forgot something. He went back to the MC and got a microphone.
While everyone was wondering, Seojun smiled and said.
“Please look forward to Shadowman 3!”

-I’m so proud of you! Lee Seojun!
-Popcorn Kekeke. Is the trophy a popcorn box? It goes well with Lee Seojun.
-Yes, I was like that from the first Festival.
-It’s so funny to promote Shadowman 3 like that. Who started it?
-Rachel, Evan, and Lee Seojun. All of them did it lol The promotional fee must have been high.
-So when will it be released?
-They didn’t even shoot yet lol
– Then isn’t it useless to promote it now?
After the film festival, a small celebration party was held. The venue was a hotel near the awards ceremony.
Since it was a surprise party to celebrate Seojun’s first award, the couple and the Shadowman team invited only a few acquaintances.
Rachel and Evan set off confetti when they saw Seojun appear at the party in comfortable clothes after changing his suits.
“Congratulations on winning the award!”
The people who arrived first also congratulated Seojun by exploding the confetti they were holding.
The acquaintances invited by Seo Eun-Hye and Lee Min-joon, and Seo Eun-chan and An Daho also set off their confetti. He was surprised, but Seojun, who was so happy, that he just smiled.
Jack, together with the Smith couple were the only ordinary people. They looked around at the people present with surprised faces.
There was also a well-known actor and director of their favorite movie.
It felt even more amazing because they were not overly dressed, they were wearing clothes as if they were attending a neighbor’s home party.
“Congratulations on winning the award!”
“Thank you, Jack.”
Seojun gave Jack chocolate cookies. Jack couldn’t eat snacks today, so he quickly put a large cookie in his mouth when he saw his mom and dad talking to Seojun’s parents.
“Isn’t it really good?”
Jack said with a surprised face because it was the first time he had such a delicious cookie.
Seojun, who managed to understand him, smiled and gave him warm milk.
Jack’s expression loosened. Chocolate cookies soaked gently in milk were very delicious.
“This is really good!”
“Do you want to take it and it later on?”
“Can I take it?”
“Yes! There are so many!”
Seojun and Jack were the only two children invited to the party, but there were so many cookies and cakes that suited the children’s taste.
Seojun and Jack tasted all the food little by little with a very expectant face.
They went this way and that way. The busy children were caught by the eyes of the adults who were talking.
The directors looked at their childlike appearance and burst into laughter. Director Ryan Will opened his mouth.
“I can’t even imagine. He look like a normal kid. How can he act like that?”
“I know. William’s acting was amazing, but Shadowman 2 was also impressive.”
Sarah Lot, the Director of Green Wing, who went against Shadowman 1, nodded.
Ryan Will,m covered the corners of his mouth with a wine glass and called Seojun.
At Ryan Will’s call, Seojun turned towards Jack. When Seojun asked if he would like to go with him, Jack shook his head because there were a lot of adults he didn’t know.
Seojun ran to Ryan Will while skipping.
“Director, what’s going on?”
“I want to introduce you to other directors. This is Sarah Lot, who Directed the green wing.”
Seojun’s eyes got bigger.
Sarah Lot, the director of Green Wing, who showed a great sense of directing, reached out her hands.
Seojun grabbed Sarah Lot’s hand tightly and shook it.
“Nice to meet you! I’m Seojun Lee!”
“I am Sarah lot. I look forward to your kind cooperation.”
“On side is George Roberts, the director of Assemble.”
“Nice to meet you.”
After Ryan Will’s introduction, the directors asked Seojun all he curiosity they had while watching Seojun’s performance.
From a wide range of questions about how such an acting was possible to the questions about the directors’ pride on which movie they liked the best.
Seojun excitedly talked about his thoughts. Directors fell in love with Seojun’s chatter nodded one after another.
As the talk grew longer, Seojun saw Jack alone and bored.
Seojun had fun talking to the directors, but he had no choice but to pay attention to his friend Jack.
Recognizing the fact, Ryan Will restrained other Director and sent Seojun away.
Since then, directors have not been able to take their eyes off from the young genius.
George Roberts, the director of Assemble, has been with many experienced actors.
“Immersed acting at that age? It doesn’t have any aftereffects? He must have been blessed with talent from heaven. I have never seen that much talent to an actor ever before.”
“I know. He’s an actor on which I look forward to his future.”
“Future? Why the future? I’m looking forward to his next work.”
They all burst into laughter as if the Directors agreed with George Roberts.
* * *
He was caught by his parents eating cake to his heart’s content.
After their parents told them that they could only eat a last cake, Seojun and Jack were eating the last cake slowly in order to enjoy it’s taste longer.
Evan Block, who was watching them ever since then, laughed.
‘Why children are so silly?’
When Jack saw him, his eyes were sparkling.
“Do you want to come with me and ask for an autograph?”
Seojun put the cake down on the table and headed with Jack to the place where Evan Block was.
Evan Block was talking a man with his back turned on Rachel Hill.
The man turned around.
Seojun was surprised at familiar voice and face.
Jack, who was standing behind Seojujun, was also speechless after checking the man’s face.
Rachel and Evan burst into laughter at the surprised faces of the two children.
The children’s heroes appeared at the party. If there were three more children at this party, there would have been a huge fuss.
David, who saw the children hesitating at an unexpected meeting, took out a pen familiarly.
“Do you want my autograph?”
Jack quickly ran towards
Maria, who made eye contact with David Garrett, slapped her forehead while looking at the place where her son ran from. She quickly took out her notebook and handed it over to her son.
“Please ask another for your mom’s too!”
Jack nodded at the words of Maria, a big fan of David Garrett.
Jack, who had received a bunch of paper, also handed one out to Seojun.
Davis Garrett familiarly signed the paper. Jack quickly ran back to his mother with the authographs.
Maria held the hands of Seo Eun-Hye and Lee Min-joon with an emotional face and shook them hard.
“Thank you so much for inviting me!”
Seojun also handed Davis Garrett a paper. Davis signed with a smile.
“It’s a pity that we couldn’t act together in the same movie, Jin Natra and Redborn together.”
“Let’s act in the same movie next time!”
“I heard from Evan that you previously acted in a play.”
“Can I join?”
Seojun, who was trying to nod at Davis’ question, turned his head to a familiar but unfamiliar voice.
