New Helpers of Seojun’s Journey to become Superstar:
They will be helping Seojun by translating his Journey to English.
As the harsh environment of entertainment continues, please continue to provide love and support to Seojun’s and his helpers!
The door opened and his Uncle Chan came in. Seo Eun-hye’s eyes, which greeted her younger brother right in front of the front door, were fierce.
Seojun and Lee Min-joon held their breath and clung closely to the sofa.
Seo Eun-chan had something in his hand.
He was so scared to meet his sister after a month that Seo Eun-chan stopped by a nearby mart and bought a gift for his nephew.
“Hahaha. This is Seojun’s present.”
“Is this a bribe?”
Seo Eun-chan, whose intentions were immediately revealed, replied with a discouraged face. Seo Eun-hye sighed and moved away.
Seo Eun-chan carefully came into the living room. He saw two people staying still in the corner of the sofa.
“Hello, brother-in-law. Hi, Seojun.”
“Long time no see.”
Seo Eun-chan, who had just handed Seojun’s gift to Lee Min-joon, kneeled down in a corner of the living room and bowed his head.
“Give me your phone.”
Seo Eun-hye took his cell phone from Seo Eun-chan, she looked through the contact list, sighed and sat down. This time, Seo Eun-hye’s phone number was saved properly.
“How come you can’t even recognize your own nephew?”
“Uhm… babies all look alike. And it’s already been a month since I’ve last seen him. How could I know that Seojun became so famous?”
Seo Eun-hye slapped her forehead at her younger brother’s vague answer.
“Yes, he’s not your son. You may not recognize him immediately.”
“Don’t forget my phone number anymore.”
“You are also going home today.”
Seo Eun-chan hesitated for a moment.
At his hesitation, Seo Eun-Hye’s eyes glared at him fiercely.
Seo Eun-chan, who saw her face, talked hastily.
“I got a job three weeks ago and because my company is new, I’m already a manager. They I don’t have many employees. That’s why we need to debut an idol group. I happened to have booked a music show a month later, so I’ve been busy preparing for it…….”
“Because of that you’re busy?”
“……I don’t think I’ll be able to get home until I let the group be present on the music show.”
“Where are you staying at?”
“My kids are all boys, so we stay together in the dorm that the company has arranged for them. I don’t know anything else, but our company’s welfare is good and our accommodation is good!”
Seo Eun-hye ignored her younger brother, who seemed to boast about their accommodation right away, and asked.
“Can you go home after the music show?”
“Uh…….depends… what if we fail?”
Lee Min-joon and Seojun shook their heads while listening to his story.
Seo Eun-hye looked at Seo Eun-chan with a pathetic look on her face as if she were thinking the same thing.
“I’m sorry. I’ll try not to ruin it.”
Seo Eun-chan apologized quietly as if he felt the eyes of the three.
“What if it does well?”
“If things go well……. After that, I have to attend events in order to go on air. I’m the current head of the department, and I’m also the manager.”
“Then you’ll be busier than you are now?”
At Seo Eun-chan’s half-hearted responses, Seon Eun-hye soon seemed to have given up.
“Well, you’re turning 30 next year. You’ll do good on your own. But at least call mom some times.”
“Oh! I’ll do it more often.”
Seo Eun-chan answered quickly, looking at the situation.
“Because you brought a snack. Did you already eat dinner?”
“Then have a cup of coffee.”
Seo Eun-hye got up and headed to the kitchen. The three men breathed a sigh of relief quietly. Lee Min-joon, who felt that the disturbance was over, opened his mouth.
“But what’s the story with the web show, brother-in-law?”
Seo Eun-chan hesitated. He thought he’d ride the popularity of the YouTube baby star if it got accepted but it was actually his own nephew.
He was wondering if he could still talk about it in this unexpected situation.
“So, what are you talking about?”
Seo Eun-hye asked while putting the coffee on the table.
There were three cups, one for his mom, father and Uncle. He doesn’t have one.
The sulky Seojun opened his mouth and burst into tears but before he did so, a baby biscuit came into his mouth.
“Come on, this is your snack.”
‘Dad remembered me, thank you.’
‘It’s delicious! Banana flavor!’
It was delicious to nibble it with his lower teeth. Seojun grabbed the snack with one hand and sucked it hard.
Seo Eun-Hye, who praised Lee Min-joon with her eyes, turned her head and looked at Seo Eun-chan with sharp eyes.
Seo Eun-chan swallowed his saliva and opened his mouth.
“My kids are completely unknown, so they don’t have any fans. Why we need fans? It will do well if someone know about us before we go on a music show. It is good to have some exposure to at least let them know their names, so I uploaded a music video that I worked hard on and posted articles on the Internet, but the number of views were not really good. At this rate we may be forgotten before we even started.”
Seo Eun-Chan, who finished talking, took a sip of coffee.
“One of the members suggested that we post a show on YouTube to gain some fans. Let’s not have a definite script, but make it like a short entertainment show. Among entertainment shows, shows with baby are popular these days, so a member suggested that it would be good.”
“So you choose Seojun?”
“Seojun is famous, so we thought we could ride on his popularity…….Uh….”
“You are going to use him?”
“No, but just let him appear for a while…….”
“Isn’t that what you are planning on doing?”
“No, it is….”
Again, that was a close call. Using his nephew… He need to choose his wording correctly.
Seo Eun-hye was lost in her own thoughts. He was her younger brother who had been unemployed for three years and had always been low on self-esteem.
But now that he got a job, he fixed himself up and carefully took care of his image.
His beard was shaved clean and his hair was neat. With his formal clothes he seemed to start acting like a normal person again.
‘What, if the company goes bust, will he be unemployed again?’
As it was a new company, it was clear that the idol’s debut would have been doomed.
It was bound to be difficult, if not bad.
Seo Eun-hye drank some coffee.
‘It’s good to help my brother, but…….’
It was different from making a mukbang video with only two people in the show
Even though it was aired on YouTube, not on television, web show was still an entertainment show.
Many people would know about Seojun and she was worried about what would happen by then.
Lee Min-joon raised his hand. Seojun, who finished eating snacks, also raised his hand. He didn’t think much about it and just agreed to whichever makes him a superstar.
Somehow the two similar men were raising their hands in the same pose. Seo Eun-hye unwinded her hardened face and smiled.
“Look. Seojun says yes too!”
“It’s okay. It will become a memory for Seojun. I am usually busy going to work and you’re busy taking care of Seojun, how can we take a video of Seojun all day? It’ll be very good memory later on to him.”
He said so, but maybe he was just doing it for her and Seo Eun-chan.
In gratitude, Seo Eun-hye clenched her husband’s hand. Lee Min-joon also held his wife’s hand. The couple’s eyes were filled with love.
Before they knew it, Seojun, who escaped from his father’s arms, sat on his uncle Chan’s lap and leaned his back on his uncle’s belly.
Seo Eun-chan also quietly examined the atmosphere.
“Still newlywed. The two of you.”
Seo Eun-chan put a baby snack in Seojun’s mouth and quietly left the living room and headed to Seojun’s toy room.
Seo Eun-chan closed the door tightly.
“Sigh, sister. She scared me to death.”
He shuddered. Then he sat on the floor, hugged and Seojun. He talked to him as if Seojun could understand.
“Seojun, your mom. It’s really scary. Right?
“Be careful not to get in trouble later. This could run in our blood. There will be no one who would accept you unless you act like brother-in-law. My brother-in-law seems to be a Buddha.”
Seo Eun-chan grumbled and saw Seojun. He was so cute seeing him sucking the snacks in one hand.
“Do you look this cute because you’re my nephew? Or are kids all cute?”
“They are supposed to be cute.”
The door opened.
Seo Eun-hye stood there.
“Did you hear that?”
“What I said before to Seojun..”
“Your brother-in-law is Buddha?”
“You heard everything!”
“Don’t talk nonsense and get out of here.”
“Seojun can hear everything. You are a bad teacher!”
Seo Eun-hye hugged Seojun and snorted.
“Seojun is smart, so he doesn’t use bad words.”
“Yes, that’s right!”
“Look, I see.”
Seo Eun-chan was at a loss for words at his sister’s words.
“So he is going to be on the show?”
“Let’s hear the plan first. We didn’t tell you what we were going to film. And let’s hear how much we’re going to lose.”
Seo Eun-chan nodded at the words of determined Seo Eun-hye.
“This is how you do it.”
“No! First of all, this. Let’s start discussing about the project?”
Seo Eun-chan quickly took out his phone and opened the file.
The file was written by the president of Cocoa Entertainment, huddling together with the members.
With how the word document was written amateurish, it definitely stood out to her that they were really newbie in the industry.
Seo Eun-chan opened his mouth.
“For now, we’ve decided with 48 hours as filming time.”
“Isn’t that too long?”
“24 hours is too short, sister. It’ll be over as soon as they get to know each other.”
“Okay, let’s move on.”
“First of all… okay. And I think the number of episodes uploaded on YouTube depends on the amount of footage taken, but we’re thinking about 8 episodes with 15 minutes. First of all, there are many people who watch YouTube short videos, right? And if we upload two episodes a week, we can release them for four weeks before the music show.”
Lee Min-joon and Seo Eun-hye nodded. Seo Eun-chan, who gained confidence, said.
“I’m going to upload it on the channel to our group channel, and I hope Seojun will promote our channel later.”
“Of course, I’ll give you a separate promotional fee.”
When Seo Eun-hye raised her hand, Seo Eun-chan, who grasped her sister’s innermost thoughts, quickly said.
Seo Eun-Hye smiled as if she was satisfied.
“There’s Christmas happening soon, so I’m going to film one or two episodes with that concept, and the rest are just going to film his daily life.”
Listening to the story, she also think 48 hours was not enough.
“What if we don’t have enough content?”
“Well, I’m thinking of eight to ten minutes each. Or about 4 episodes, with 10 minutes each…….”
Seo Eun-chan, who glossed over his words, sighed.
“I don’t think Seojun going to come out that much? What do you think, sister? Seojun, do you think he has a good sense of humor?”
“What do you want from an eight-month-old baby? What about your members’ entertainment skills?”
At Seo Eun-hye’s question, Seo Eun-chan recalled his boys.
Leader Park Seo-jin, Kevin Kim who speaks English fast. Naughty Hwang Ye-joon. The youngest, Choi Si-Yoon.
They’ve only met each other for three weeks, and each of them have unique characters. But for entertainment….
“……I don’t know.”
“It’s gonna work out. Seojun is already a YouTube star. It’s going to be amazing if 500,000 subscribers watch it all once.”
Lee Min-joon patted his depressed brother and wife on the shoulder and said.
While Seojun shrugged his shoulders and made some baby noises.
Yes, the channel [JUN] already has more than 500,000 subscribers now.
Thank you for those who donated towards our co-translator. She has now returned to her home and recovering from the trauma.
