Because I feel like others are confused why the previous chapter is like that, here is another one to clear your minds.
“The director is here. Can Seojun eat now?”
Kang So-ra, who introduced herself as the marketing team leader, asked. Seo Eun-hye, who stood next to the crib, carried Seojun while looking at the clock.
“Yes, he needs to eat in about ten minutes.”
“That’s great. Shall we wait on the set?”
Seo Eun-hye held Seojun and Lee Min-joon held a teddy bear.
When they came out of the waiting room along with team leader Kang So-ra, they saw the living room being built completely.
It was similar to the living room of their house, but it has a warmer and more cozy atmosphere.
“Yes, thank you.”
A man walked from far away. The soft chin seemed awkward, and he kept touching it with his hands. The team leader Kang So-ra introduced the man.
“He is the director who’s going to film a commercial today.”
“Nice to meet you.”
Director Choi Dae-man, with a deep voice, bowed and made eye contact with Seojun. He cut off his beard, which was long and shaggy just to shoot this short ad.
Seojun also made eye contact with the man in front of him.
Looking at his clean, clear eyes, he seemed to be a good man.
Seojun made some friendly baby sounds.
“That’s nice, the baby seemed not to be shy from you.”
Choi Dae-man, who looked pretty tough, was the type to be hated by kids. They cried their eyes out whenever he got close. He doesn’t hate children, but he was used to be reluctant to get close to them everytime they cried like that.
Fortunately, Seojun smiled very brightly, rather than being shy.
“We’re ready for the shoot. He can always eat at anytime. We will use one camera in front, two cameras at the right, one in the back, one at the top, a total of 5 cameras. We will try to shoot good scenes.”
Director Choi Dae-man talked about the filming settings.
“First, I’m going to film Seojun drinking the powdered milk. And when he is done, he is going to hug the Elephant powdered milk box like it is a doll and smile brightly.”
Seo Eun-hye thought for a moment. It was okay for him to drink the powdered milk.
But hugging the Elephant box, plus a bright smile…….
“Seojun is smart, but I don’t think he can do it at once.…. Is it okay?”
“It’s all right. I’m sure they prepared well.”
The staff on the set sighed inside. That’s the case with the filming centered on a child. Moreover, it was a complete baby that neither mother nor father could order around.
All of them are ready to shoot for a very long time. In order to not miss any good shots.
“At his age……. Can’t he carry the bottle alone yet, can he?”
“Yes. He can hold the bottle himself because it usually happens between seven or eight months baby.”
“Wow, is that so? I originally thought that someone would have to help him up but if he can carry it alone, that would be fine. He might be uncomfortable with unfamiliar things.”
“Then, the baby chair…….”
“Here you go!”
Kang So-ra, who ran to the waiting room, brought a soft baby sofa which was tilted about 45 degrees. Seo Eun-hye and Lee Min-joon laughed awkwardly at their enthusiastic appearance.
“There you go.”
“Yes. Seojun’s mom could you make some powdered milk, and the team leader put the chair over here.”
Seo Eun-hye entered the waiting room and started preparing the powdered milk at the order of director Choi Dae-man. The team leader Kang So-ra put chairs in the center of the living room and turned them around. They shifted its position slightly depending on the camera screen.
When Seo Eun-hye finished preparing the powdered milk, Choi Dae-man guided Lee Min-joon, who was holding Seojun, to the living room.
Lee Min-joon carefully put Seojun down on the baby sofa. And he put the teddy bear next to him. The teddy bear’s arm was placed in front of Seojun so that he could hug it anytime.
“Seojun, let’s eat.”
Seo Eun-hye handed Seojun a baby bottle. Seojun grabbed the baby bottle with one small hand.
It was a warm and delicious powdered milk. Seojun smiled brightly because the temperature of the warm baby bottle felt with his palm. He was so hungry just now.
“Let’s get started!”
Director Choi Dae-man shouted quietly. The set became silent in an instant. Choi Dae-man and Kang So-ra, the team leader, and Choi Hyun-ji, who suddenly appeared, turned their heads towards the big screen.
Seojun with a baby bottle was being filmed on camera. Seojun bit the nipples.
On the set, only the sound of Seojun drinking powdered milk rang. Fortunately, he ate very well and didn’t cry.
“Is that the mukbang?”
A staff member, who didn’t watch Seojun’s YouTube video, asked his senior. The senior nodded.
“The baby is very cute and eats well……. That’s normal. That’s the way a baby should eat.”
“Children that age are usually very distracted.”
Like music video reviews, there are people who watched Seojun’s eating show began to review it and upload it on YouTube. It looked like they were eating together.
“But the baby is really cute. I don’t think he’s conscious of the camera.”
“Did you know what a camera is at that age?”
“But isn’t the set a scary atmosphere? The lights are bright, there’s no one around and it’s quiet. There’s also a lot of weird stuff…….”
It was as the staff said. If it were another baby, they would burst into tears.
“Don’t worry as long as he is eating right now.”
“The next scene is more important than the current one. Please let’s shoot it at once.”
The staff also nodded at the senior’s words.
Seojun drank all the powdered milk. He burped in Seo Eun-hye’s arms. Lee Min-joon, who was waiting for Seojun’s hand to wave next to him, tilted his head.
“Seojun didn’t wave his arms.”
“Wave? Come to think of it…….”
Seo Eun-hye recalled her memory. Come to think of it, Seojun didn’t wave his arm even though there was a camera. He just drank powdered milk.
“Well, is it because he is holding a bottle?”
“Maybe. Well, as long as it’s good.”
Seojun, in his mother’s arms, grinned.
There was a limit to his skills Seojun could have because he was a baby.
Fairy’s glitter – the lowest level, which Seojun uses by waving his arms, was sent back to the library because of his new secret weapon.
The skill was probably back in the book by now.
Seojun recalled the skill he found.
[Small Mimic’s coveted packaging- High Level]
It makes any packaged object be coveted.
He can also specify a target.
Limit: User size must be less than a certain amount.
The object must be in user’s arms.
There were many restrictions, but these restrictions allowed him to use it’s high-level skills even though he was a baby who lacked mana.
This skill was an ability that he wouldn’t be able to use as an adult. First of all, he could tell from the name ‘Little Mimic’. Only small things could use this skill.
“Then we’ll move on to the next scene.”
At the words of Choi Dae-man, Lee Min-joon and Seo Eun-hye put Seojun down in the living room again. The baby sofa disappeared before they knew it, and Elephant milk powder bottles were stacked on the floor.
In front of them, there was an Elephant powder bottle beside Seojun.
“Seojun, how about this?”
“Come on, that’s a pretty elephant.”
The couple shook the powdered milk. Seojun, who secretly listened to the director while his mother’s arms earlier, already knew that he had to hold this powder bottle and smile broadly.
‘Fortunately, the director wanted me to hug the bottle, otherwise I would have cried until I could hugged it.’
[Little Mimic’s coveted packaging] only worked when the user was holding the object. Seojun had to hug the powdered milk container because he had to make others want to buy powdered milk.
Seojun smiled broadly and hugged the powdered milk. As the director said, the couple quickly escaped from the camera screen.
[Packing the target with the little mimc coveted packaging – the highest level.]
Seojun hugged the box with the pattern of a small wooden box that only he can see and powdered milk as tightly as possible.
The Elephant powder bottle he was holding shone with a very beautiful color, this sight was invisible to people.
[Little Mimic’s coveted packaging – highest level] was well invoked.
“Target, parents with babies my age.”
If the target is not set, people all over the world who watched the commercial will go crazy in order to buy the powdered milk.
‘Well……there aren’t few parents with babies……. But it doesn’t make sense if I can’t sell out when I’m in a commercial!’
Seojun laughed as he dreamed of selling it out.
Director Choi Dae-man enlarged the camera screen.
The baby was cute and handsome, his little laugh was captured very well by the camera. Some people couldn’t look good in screen even if they looked good in person, but the baby came out so well that both sides were satisfied.
‘And seeing that he don’t care about cameras, this may be his talent when he grows up.’
Seojun’s plump cheeks pressed the lid of the powdered milk container. Team leader Kang So-ra grabbed her heart with her slightly protruding cheeks.
Choi Hyun-ji sighed. She didn’t express it, but she also wanted to destroy a couple of apartments.
“Really, I’ve never seen such a cute baby before.”
“Yeah, wouldn’t he be a big star if he grew up like this?”
“If it were my son, I’d push him to be a real celebrity.”
Not only the team leaders but also other staff members were whispering to each other.
Seojun didn’t stay still for a moment. He changed his posture as if he were trying to figure out how to look cuter.
In the meantime, he never forgot to put a smiling face and hug the powdered milk.
Seo Eun-hye and Lee Min-joon, who were alternately looking at Seojun and the people on the set, were lost in thought. Should they really make him a celebrity?
“Seojun, do you want to look this way?”
Director Choi Dae-man said.
The eight-month-old baby did so well that the Director Choi Dae-man, who is obsessed with filming, gave instructions without realizing it.
Coincidentally or deliberately, Seojun turned his head and looked at the camera that Choi Dae-man was holding.
“He, he, he!”
The shooting ended with Seojun’s laugh.
* * *
“He is a genius.”
Director Choi Dae-man said with a serious face. Seo Eun-hye and Lee Min-joon nodded as if they had already expected it. Seojun was lying on the crib with a teddy bear beside him and taking a nap.
Only 20 minutes have passed and the commercial shoot was over.
“This child must have talent to become an actor. He doesn’t even understand it, but he instinctively knows what he has to do.”
Choi Dae-man did not think Seojun understood what he said.
Luck, constitution, instinct.
He thought Seojun had what it takes to be an actor.
“I’m not saying he should be on TV or in movies from now on. There are no directors willing to shoot out such a young baby unless it’s a very short role. I just thought it would be great to send him to the academy when he can start thinking talking or understand things.”
“I’m still new in this world, but if you need my help, feel free to contact me.”
Director Choi Dae-man wrote his contact information and name on a memo and handed it to Lee Min-joon.
When Choi Dae-man left the waiting room, Choi Hyun-ji and Kang So-ra came in. Team leader Kang So-ra was dragging a large box onto the cart.
“Thank you for your hard work. You did a great job. Seojun.”
“Thank you. Thank you for your hard work. Both of you.”
“Ahahaha. Seojun did a great job. Oh, this is the baby sofa he sat on earlier with Elephant powdered milk. It would be Seojun’s present.”
The schedule ended in a friendly atmosphere.
The staff, who were prepared to suffer from the baby all day for the powdered milk commercial shoot, also started packing the shooting that has ended in less than an hour.
“I’ll buy my nephew the powdered milk.”
“Elephant milk will sold out! Way to go!”
With the support of the staff, the family returned home.
* * *
‘My son’s meal time.’
Eric turned on a YouTube video. It was a video of [JUN] which he was watching five times a day.
He watched it so much that he had already memorized at what timing Seojun laughed, waved his arms at what angle, and chewed on baby food.
“Come on, Jack, it’s your favorite JUN.”
Maria, who just returned from a business trip to Paris, also sat down at the table to feed Jack.
She was also praising JUN’s video. Maria pressed down on the video.
There was calm music. It was the usual JUN’s dad’s voice.
“Oh, there’s an ad coming up.”
“No way. How many views…….”
Eric and Maria were subscribers since it was released but after few days they were sick and tired of seeing the number of views and subscribers going up.
“What kind of ad is it?”
“Oh, isn’t that Elephant powdered milk?”
A yellow elephant appeared. The image of a yellow elephant raising its nose upward was changed from a video to a picture and attached to a milk powder bottle. And…
“Oh! Isn’t that JUN?”
“Yeah, I think they did a commercial! Cute!”
Seojun was seen smiling and drinking powdered milk. And Seojun’s grin with Elephant’s milk powder bottle was the last part.
It was quiet.
Eric and Maria picked up the phone without saying a word. They went to overseas delivery site and searched Elephant.
“Damn! Out of stock!”
“No! I really want to buy this now!”
The effect of the coveted packaging of the little mimic – was incredible.
