He thought there would be no others surprises with the appearance of David Garrett, but his appearance was the most shocking.
A famous Hollywood actor, who Seojun really wanted to act with. It was Swarlin An, who became Seojun’s teacher through his videos.
“Swarlin, it’s been a while.”
“Yeah. You’ve improved a lot, too.”
“It’s still a long way from yours.”
Rachel, Evan, and David, who had a movie together with Swarlin An before, are having a conversation, but Seojun just stared at Swarlin An blankly.
“Sigh, you have to get an autograph!”’
“Please give me your autograph.”
Seojun shouted with a more excited face than when he asked David Garrett.
David Garrett clearly knew whose fan Seojun was just by seeing his expression. He raised his hands and pretended to lose. Evan and Rachel burst into laughter at the appearance of the little boy.
“I also want to act with you in the future!”
Swarlin An, who went to borrow David’s pen at Seojun’s words, tilted his head and made eye contact with Ryan Will. He smiled at Ryan Will, who zipped his mouth.
“Okay. Let’s act together.”
Director Ryan Will, who was watching Seojun and the actors having a pleasant conversation, turned towards the directors again. It was because an interesting story caught his ears.
“Green Wing 2 will be released next year, right?”
“I may have lost the match, but there are still many fans waiting for the second movie of green wing.”
“Good. Green Wing 1 was good too. Especially the music and battle scenes. You must have had a hard time matching the music and the video.”
Sarah Lot laughed at the other Directors’ compliments.
“When I make a movie, I mostly pay attention to music. So, why don’t I make a musical movie with music as the main subject? I have been thinking about this for a long time. I really want to make a musical movie next time.”
“If it is a musical movie directed by Sarah Lot. Have you thought about who would be the main character?”
Sarah Lot’s eyes turned towards one place when she was asked such question. The eyes of the other directors, also headed there.
Seojun and the other four actors were talking to each other.
Seeing how well they integrate with each other, the topic was most likely about acting.
There were four adult actors who will guarantee its success, but the directors there already knew that they were not the actors that Sarah Lot would want for a musical movie.
Seojun Lee, a child actor with sparkling eyes was using all kinds of gestures to talk passionately to the other parties.
Someone uttered a low exclamation. Ryan Will, immediately know who she wanted for the movie.
‘A Musical movies and Jun. I don’t need to worry that he wouldn’t fit in that genre. Isn’t he an actor that can play any role?’
He was already looking forward on how great the movie would become.
A thriller director, also a former musician, asked half desperately.
“Can you tell us the rough storyline? I’m dying to know.”
“I still have a lot to prepare. The synopsis isn’t done yet either.”
When the directors were about to burst into laughter at Sarah Lot’s waved her hand,
“That movie. Can we invest in it?”
A person sitting near the Director’s group opened his mouth.
The directors’ eyes all look on the man asking the question. In addition to the man, also several others were watching the directors.
Director Ryan Will frowned and looked around the crowded venue of the party.
This was not the only place that held a party after the film festival.
However, many actors and directors wanted to see the child actor who showed tremendous acting skills.
For that reason alone, actors with fans around the world and directors with guaranteed box office success, mostly attended Seojun’s party.
Delicious prey were gathered in one place. All the reporters, investors, and filmmakers had no choice but to pay attention to this one and only place.
When a person came to know where they were heading, words of mouth begin to spread immediately and soon the size of the party has grown.
The directors also noticed that fact.
Sarah lot scratched her temple.
If the the party was like this, the social media should be a mess right now.
The directors were not the only ones who noticed what was happening. The party’s organizers, Rachel Hill and Evan Block, sent Seojun’s acquaintances, who are ordinary people not part of entertainment world, to the back door of the hotel. Everyone left the party after promising to meet each other later.
Seojun said his goodbyes to his acquaintances leaving with their cars.
He didn’t notice it because he was inside a bright hotel function hall, but it was already night.
Lee Min-joon looked at the clock, he didn’t that many hours had already pass because his son was so excited to have won the award.
“I think it’s too late. Shall we go back now?”
“Yeah. It’s already past Seojun’s bedtime. Seojun, aren’t you tired?”
“I’m okay, but I’ll go back since it’s already late!”
There’s no Jack, and there are many people he didn’t know at the party. Actors and directors can talk to each other all night, but he wasn’t accustomed to that kind of atmosphere.
‘Oh! I forgot!’
“I need to ask for Swarlin and David’s phone numbers”.
They became very close in the short conversation, but he still didn’t know their phone number yet.
‘I have to get their phone numbers!’
Seojun’s eyes shined.

[(Exclusive) Actor Lee Seojun will be back in Korea next week!]
A few days later.
While Seojun was playing with Jack, Seo Eun-chan returned in Korea first and began preparing for Seojun’s entry.
Seo Eun-chan and Cocoa Entertainment became nervous as Seojun’s arrival day approached, although they were prepared, they still couldn’t take away the nervousness they are feeling.
“Please, let the crowd be like when Seojun left the country! Please!”
Seo Eun-chan made a wish and prayed again and again. The airport guards and bodyguards, who went through the departure route with Seojun, also prayed deep inside.
‘Just be as peaceful as then.’
Seojun’s arrival day.
Seeing people flocking to the airport, Seo Eun-chan unknowingly looked up in the sky and prayed.
Cocoa Entertainment employee who came to the airport also called for God or Blue Dragon.
“Are they people waiting for Seojun?”
“I wish they were actually people leaving the country!”
Their prayers didn’t seem to work. The plane had not arrived yet, but it was already crowded.
Exceptionally large cameras were being installed and near the arrival.
Seo Eun-chan opened his mouth as he was reading the names of the broadcasting stations written on each cameras.
“Yes, that one.”
Team leader Kim Soo-Ryeon, who understood Seo Eun-chan’s thoughts at once, nodded.
“…Would it have been better not to say yes to the live broadcast?”
“I think they would still come here.”
“I know.” Seo Eun-chan, who agreed with team leader Kim Soo-Ryeon, muttered.
“Why are there so many?”
“Seojun is 8 years old now, right? This many of people waiting for him is expected. They are all curious what kind of movies will he shoot and how successful will it be? What about when he will become 10 or 13 years old? As he gets older, he’ll become more famous. It’s inevitable.” Team leader Kim Soo-Ryeon says recalling posts posted on Seojun’s fan cafe.
“We’re seeing that growth. 48 hours, CF commercial, William, The Devil, Jin natra. Maybe everyone in the world is watching the growth of an actor who is writing a historical. Like a legendary singer, the growth of a superstar who will still be famous even 100 years later.”
It was the hearts of the people gathered here and the people watching live on television.
“An actor’s childhood was this now, so who wouldn’t be curious about his future?”
At the words of team leader Kim Soo-ryeon, Seo Eun-chan looked at the crowded airport. He could see people waiting for Seojun with high expectations.
“I think people are looking forward to it too much.”
Seo Eun-chan suddenly remembered many stories of geniuses who disappeared from the entertainment world because they felt burdened by people’s expectations.
