“Wow, it increased again.”
Choi Si-yoon, who was constantly refreshing the channel [JUN], said.
Every time he refreshed with the latest pineapple pad, there were dozens of subscribers more to the channel [JUN].
Kevin and Hwang Ye-joon, who were sitting in front of the computer, also took time to browse sites from the U.S. and South Korea to read news about [JUN] and Elephant milk powder.
They heard from Seo Eun-chan, their manager, that the baby named “Lee Seojun,” who will film a baby show with them, filmed an Elephant powdered milk commercial.
“[Wow, that’s the power of advertising from [JUN]. If the product on this shopping website is sold out, doesn’t it mean that almost all the products from all over the world are sold out? Wow. How is it so effective? I thought it’s just a normal commercial……. Is there a message or something in the ad that I don’t know making parents react like this?]”
“Kevin is speaking English again! Doctor! Dr. Park Seo-jin!”
Hwang Ye-joon shouted at Kevin, who was talking at a terrifying pace – in English- he was constantly teased by the members that he lacked Korean.
Park Seo-jin sat away from them and took notes from parenting books such as [Knowing this is the master of parenting!], [What a 8-month-old baby needs] and [Making a baby genius], when Heang Ye-joon called him, he look at him with a face full of dark circles.
“We’re shooting in three days. Just read this book when you have time to look at that bullshit.”
Hwang Ye-joon, who was stared by Park Seo-jin’s eyes as if he was half dead, quietly turned off the computer and took a book.
“I’m sleepy whenever I read a real book.….”
“It’s okay. Half of it are just drawings.”
Park Seo-jin choose books that fit Hwang Ye-jun’s level. Hwang Ye-Joon read the title of the book.
[A fairy tale for a baby under 12 months old]
“Read it continuously so that you can read it to the baby or narrate it.”
“This is an Old story.”
Choi Si-yoon, who was sitting next to Hwang Ye-jun started reading fairy tales, put down the pine pad and headed to Park Seo-jin.
“Seo-jin. What should I do?”
“You… [Kevin. Give me a credit card!]”
Kevin, who was diligently analyzing the Elephant powdered milk ad, took the card out from his pocket and threw it. Park Seo-jin, who received the card, handed it over to Choi Si-yoon.
“You go to a nearby supermarket and buy toys that babies will love. He is 8 months old and a boy. You know that, right?”
“Of course I do. How much should I spend?”
“Okay! I’ll be back!”
Choi Si-yoon, who was busy wearing the shoes excitedly at the thought of looking around the new products at the electronics corner of a large mart, stood stiff after hearing the voice of Park Seo-jin muttering quietly.
“If Seojun doesn’t like the toys, you won’t be able to use your precious electronics for a while.”
“……For how long?”
Park Seo-jin smiled refreshingly like an idol in front of the fan with fiercely sparkling eyes.
Choi Si-yoon got goosebumps as if he was facing a devil’s smile.
“If you fail… how about for life?”
Park Seojin. The leader of Brown Black (BB), who hasn’t even debuted yet, was putting his life and soul on the line for this shoot.
* * *
“All right, I’m done installing!”
Uncle Chan said. His uncle, who came home early in the morning, installed the cameras everywhere, from living room to his bedroom to the kitchen.
“Here and here. And I installed it here, too.”
“We won’t be there anyway. You don’t have to tell me, do you?”
“The landlord should know.”
At Seo Eun-hye’s question, Eun-chan answered with a shrug. Then he picked up his cell phone and called someone.
“Uh, it’s me.”
“Yes! Wait a minute!”
Park Seo-jin, who answered Seo Eun-chan’s phone call, was sitting on the passenger seat and looked back at the members staring at him.
“This is Seojun’s apartment parking lot.”
There were four men sitting in the black tinted car, half leaning, half worried, half at a loss.
On the other side of the cell phone, Seo Eun-chan said.
“Come up when you’re ready. Don’t forget that there’s…”
He cut him off.
Park Seo-jin, who was looking at the black screen, raised his head.
The four of them knew well each other after spending a long time as trainees and settled in Cocoa Entertainment.
They’ve been through a lot of frustration and failure. They have nothing else but this fate, so all four of them thought this was their last chance.
“This could be the last time. It’s different from other companies where they can postpone their debut at any time they like. There are only few places that make this opportunity for us, who haven’t even debuted yet.”
Park Seojin was encouraging the members as the leader.
“Everyone, let’s cheer up!”
He opened the locked car door wide.
* * *
“Hello! It’s Brown Black!”
The four men bowed 90 degrees to greet the couple.
Seojun, who was being hugged by his father, clapped his hands at their great enthusiasm, while Seo Eun-hye and Lee Min-joon took a step back in a cold sweat.
Seo Eun-chan expressed his pride by looking at his already grown children.
“B, Brown, Black?”
“Yes, brother-in-law. We’ve decided on a group name. If you shorten it, it’s BB. You can just call them Double B. Isn’t it okay?
“Is that… is that so? Nice to meet you. I’m Seojun’s dad, Lee Min-joon.”
Lee Min-joon welcomed the four people with an awkward smile. Seo Eun-hye also said her hello.
“Nice to meet you. I am Seojun’s mom, Seo Eun-Hye.”
“She is my sister.”
The members nodded at Seo Eun-chan’s words. She was the main character from the phone.
Unlike the fierce-looking Seo Eun-chan, she was an ordinary beauty.
“Hello! I’m Park Seo-jin, the leader of Brown Black.”
“Rapper, Kevin Kim.”
“I’m Hwang Ye-joon, the sub-vocalist.”
“I’m Choi Si-yoon, the youngest and the main dancer.”
Then they bowed down again at 90 degrees.
Lee Min-joon quickly led them to seat. There was not enough space on the sofa, so everyone sat on the living room floor.
There were fruits and snacks on the table, but Brown Black was very stiff as if they are being interrogated, so they couldn’t give any attention at the refreshments and couldn’t move.
Seo Eun-hye opened her mouth at the awkward atmosphere.
“Are there any others?”
She thought that the production team would come like in a Variety entertainment show, but she didn’t think they weren’t needed.
Seo Eun-chan shook his head.
“I don’t want to make it that big. Just a little bit. The camera has already been installed and has already started recording, and the rest is just me and..… wait…….”
Seo Eun-chan got up from his seat and called someone.
“Yes, yes, it’s on the 12th floor. Yes, apartment number five.”
He talked to someone for a while and hung up.
At the same time, there was a ding-dong. When Seo Eun-chan opened the door, a short-haired woman with a large bag stood.
Seo Eun-hye and Lee Min-joon, who were sitting, also stood up and greeted. Seo Jun, who was hugging his dad, also said hi.
Brown Black, who had no idea what to do, jumped up and bowed to the new guest.
“Nice to meet you.”
“This is a pediatrician, Kim Hwa-ryeon. She’s also our public relations team leader.”
“I’m Kim Hwa-ryeon.”
Seo Eun-hye and Lee Min-joon’s were shocked.
“No, what kind of filming are you doing by bringing in a pediatrician?”
“Seojun’s will be filming with strangers for 48 hours without his mom and dad. Did you really think he will be safe? I’m an uncle, so I worry for him that’s why I call a Pediatrician.”
Seo Eun-hye admired her brother’s deep thoughts.
“I didn’t expect you to be this thoughtful. I didn’t know.”
Seo Eun-chan, turned his eyes. He was looking towards a Brown Black’s member.
Seo Eun-hye, Lee Min-joon, and Seojun’s eyes also turned to that direction.
The four men cringed as people’s eyes were on them.
“It wasn’t me, it was actually Seo-jin’s suggestion.”
“Of course it is.”
Seo Eun-hye’s eyes changed. As expected, her younger brother was still her younger brother.
Lee Min-joon, who was already familiar with the fight between the brother and sister, headed in front of the man who introduced himself as Park Seo-jin.
Lee Min-joon was deeply moved by Park Seo-jin’s consideration and dedication for the baby.
In addition, idols – even though they haven’t debuted yet – they didn’t seem to have any accessories or makeup to prevent harm to the baby.
The front door was full of luggage brought by Brown Black. Looking at the objects sticking out of the bag, they must have search a lot about babies.
He thought he could trust them Seojun with confidence.
“No, No it is our pleasure!”
“Come on. Do you want to hug Seojun?”
Lee Min-joon handed Seojun over to Park Seo-jin.
Park Seo-jin, who had never held a young baby around before, carried Seojun carefully, with his hands shaking.
‘It’s a little uncomfortable…….’
Seeing the expressions of Park Seo-jin and the other three, Seojun decided to hold on his cry.
Lee Min-joon corrected Park Seo-jin’s posture.
“If you hug him like that, Seojun would feel uncomfortable, so put your arms in…….”
Seojun, who was now in a comfortable with his father’s coaching, smiled brightly.
He was always in the arms of the same people every day, but it felt different to be hugged by a first timer.
“Ms. Kim Hwa-ryeon!”
“What’s wrong with him?”
Brown Black was devastated by Seojun’s laugh.
Park Seo-jin and Kevin called for a doctor, and Choi Si-yoon took out the toys he bought quickly. Hwang Ye-joon was so embarrassed that he couldn’t say a word and just screamed.
It was a mess.
“Is this… is it okay?”
“We have a doctor. But isn’t this pretty funny?”
Seo Eun-hye and Lee Min-joon talked quietly. As Lee Min-joon said, it was only for a few minutes, but they were already laughing at their sight.
Seo Eun-chan gave a satisfied smile as he recalled the cameras already installed in the living room.
“It’s a good thing I installed them in advance.”
Kim Hwa-ryeon carefully close the camera she has been holding since coming in the apartment.
It was a camera used in the dance practice room in Cocoa Entertainment.
“I’ve been filming since I came in. I’ve captured them.”
“That’s great! It’d be great if there were a lot of things we could use to edit.”
Seo Eun-chan smiled and tried to take the camera from Kim Hwa-ryeon, but Kim Hwa-ryeon immediately stepped back.
“What’s wrong with you?”
“Uh…… it’s…… I’m sorry.”
Kim Hwa-ryeon didn’t dare to say it but Seo Eun-chan, who has been living with his fierce face for 29 years, noticed it at once. The problem was his scary-looking face.
As he thought, Kim Hwa-ryeon stepped back without realizing it was due to Seo Eun-chan’s ugly face.
“Give me the recording later…….”
“Doctor! Seojun kept laughing!”
“[Are you sick? Why is he laughing so hard?!]”
“Kevin, stop speaking English! Speak Korean! We don’t understand! I think Seojun is laughing so hard! Doctor!”
“Let me give you this, shall I?”
Seo Eun-chan turned his head to the sight ful of chaos.
Brown Black were busy soothing Seojun. Choi Si-yoon was walking around him holding a doll taken out from a large luggage bag.
Seo Eun-chan slapped his forehead.
“No, that’s because you guys are such a chaos.”
Seo Eun-chan’s words didn’t even catch Brown Black’s ears. He was so embarrassed that they couldn’t hear anything.
Seojun has never seen such funny people. He laughed so hard that he was about to cry…….
“He is tearing!”
“Seojun is crying!”
“[Doctor!Doctor!Doctor! He’s laughing and crying. Sick, sick is he sick?!]”
“Can someone else carry Seojun instead of me?”
The power of tears was great. Hwang Ye-joon and Choi Si-yoon were in a hurry and Kevin shouted “Doctor!” Park Seo-jin held Seojun with trembling arms and broke into a cold sweat.
Looking at the chaotic Brown Black, Seojun’s Mom and dad were laughing while holding their stomachs, and finally the doctor and uncle Chan burst into laughter.
Seojun also smiled pleasantly.
Thank you for those who donated towards our co-translator. She has now returned to her home and recovering from the trauma.
