“Wow. Seojun is in France.”
Everyone gathered around Choi Yeseul’s cell phone at the words ‘Seojun’ coming from her mouth.
“I really enjoyed watching My clinic!”
“Isn’t that obvious? It is hard to find people who haven’t watch My clinic yet.”
“I watched the replay for the first episodes and from the 10th episode I watch it at the exact time of it’s broadcast. Even then, I couldn’t wait for the replay to be uploaded to rewatch it again.”
“I cried a lot. Especially on episode 14, his last scene.”
“I’m sure all the viewers of My clinic cried. I heard the DVD might be released. Are you going to buy it?”
“Yes. I hope they can give me a copy of Seojun’s script as a souvenir.”
Everyone was chattering among each other but Choi Yeseul was the only one who looked serious. The team leader, who noticed her, asked her.
“Yeseul, are you sick? Do you want to go back the hotel and rest?”
“No, it’s not that…”
Choi Yeseul sighed without realizing it. The eyes of the employees, who were initially talking about Lee Seojun, looked at Choi Yeseul.
Amidst their gazes, Choi Yeseul clicked an article with her finger.
“The article here says, Lee Seojun is on a family trip.”
“Other articles says he might have come to participate Orsay’s Halloween festival.”
“Then, the chances of meeting each other on the street is high! I thought I’d be able to see him at work because he’s the son of CEO Lee Min-Joon, but I’ve never seen him before.… Huh?” The employee suddenly stopped talking.
The other employees nodded and agreed with their co-employee’s words. When they re-read the article, slowly they realized a fact that stunned them. Even the leader went stiff.
[Actor Lee Seojun’s, Family trip destination is France!]
The words “family trip” seemed to be very highlighted in their eyes.
“If it’s Seojun’s family, isn’t he our CEO’s…”
“We still don’t know if the CEO really came here personally.”
The friendly atmosphere quickly became gloomy.
* * *
After adjusting to the time difference, Seojun and his parents decided to visit the Eiffel Tower. This one of the very famous tourist spot in the whole world, there were many people here even at sunset.
Seojun saw a large tower in front of him. Seeing the Eiffel Tower with the sunset as it’s background was really cool.
Seojun and his parents looked at the Eiffel Tower silently.
“The lights will turn on soon. It’ll be much beautiful at night then.”
“Shall we wait and take a picture?”
Perhaps, because it was a foreign country, there was no one who could recognized him, so he was having fun walking around comfortably.
Seojun was really enjoying this unexpected trip. They wandered around and took a lot of pictures.
Meanwhile, Lee Min-Joon’s cell phone rang. It was Kim Hee-sung.
Lee Min-joon, who was on the phone, smoothed his back neck as if his blood pressure had risen.
“Dad, who is it?”
“Uncle Hee-Sung? What’s up?”
“Our company will open a open a booth at the Orsay’s Halloween Festival. I will need to stop by there and see if they’re doing well.
At Lee Min-Joon’s words, Seo Eun-Hye wondered.
“Aren’t you on a vacation?”
“I also asked that and he replied, ‘Aren’t you on a paid vacation? You will be looking around Orsay anyway, just visit them for a while.’ How come he is making me work with on vacation?”
“Well, it doesn’t matter since we’re going there anyway.”
“I didn’t want to work on my vacation…”
When Lee Min-Joon sighed, Seojun and Seo Eun-hye smiled and hugged Lee Min-Joon.
“Okay, okay. Think about that later and enjoy our trip now.”
“This is Orsay.”
Seojun and his parents arrived at Orsay. The Halloween festival hasn’t even begun yet, but there were already people with children everywhere.
Everyone were dressed up and did not hide their expectations for the Halloween festival.
Lee Min-Joon looked at the time, and opened his mouth.
“I’ll go to the booth first. Seojun, do you want to go somewhere else with your mom?”
“Can’t you come with us?”
“Hmm. I’m sure they are still organizing things. It’ll be dangerous. I will make it up to you later.”
“We’ll be at the wine museum. Call me when you’re done.”
“Okay. Be careful.”
Lee Min-joon headed toward the square where the main Halloween festival will be held.
Orsay’s Square was noisy because of the preparation for the festival.
The square and the road were divided into many boundaries, and security guards blocked non-staff people from entering.
Inside the square, large tents and booths of participating shops were being installed.
Lee Min-Joon massage his temple at thought he will really have work at the sight of paper boxes, chairs, and desks scattered here and there.
“Kim Hee-Sung. Just wait…!”
At the entrance, the security guards were checking the pass. Lee Min-joon, who had no pass, picked up his cell phone and called the team leader.
The phone rang.
“He is here!”
CEO Lee Min-Joon’s name appeared on the screen. The team leader was already informed that he would visit around 2 O’Clock, but he stared at his cell phone since 1 O’Clock. When he saw his name, he jumped up.
The other employees also looked at the team leader running towards the entrance of the square with a pitiful look.
“Our company is really full of hardworking people, even the CEO works during his vacation…”
“Honestly, all bosses are facing many difficulties.”
“Cheer up, team leader.”
Everyone cheered for the team leader deep inside.
There was only one person who will have a hard time because the boss came here. And this boss even came to work during his vacation.
The team leader and Lee Min-Joon smiled awkwardly and greeted each other. The team leader handed over him the pass he had prepared for Lee Min-joon.
Lee Min-joon, who had a pass around his neck, could now walk inside the square.
The team leader gave Lee Min-joon a pamphlet of information on the event distributed by the organizers and guided him inside the square.
Stage events will held on a large stage in the center, food and souvenirs will be one the booths set up one by one.
They also greeted the Orsay’s main staff and toured around the lost child shelter and emergency treatment center.
‘I’ll have to remember this places.’
It would not have been easy to find such place if there were many people around.
“This is the food truck zone.”
“There are a lot of stores.”
“Yes. It became more popular year by year. At first, they used only half of the square, but now they appear everywhere.”
Lee Min-Joon nodded.
“Shall we go to the booth?”
The team leader walked ahead and guided.
“If you look at the information pamphlet, the restaurant booths are marked with different color. Booths for beverages are blue, and for food is green.”
“Souvenir shops are scattered here and there, but for the cases of foreign companies and larger local companies, they are just concentrated in one place. Our booth is over there too.”
The map on the pamphlet showed some logos of toy and doll companies that Lee Min-Joon is familiar with. Among them, Monster’s logo stood out the most.
“This is it.”
Monster’s booth staffs were busy displaying Monster’s dolls, school supplies, and metal badges.
All the male employees were either carrying dolls or paper boxes, and the females were busy displaying the merchandises.
Lee Min-Joon appeared with the team leader and he could see immediately that the staffs seemed to be uncomfortable.
“Don’t worry about me and keep going.”
Lee Min-Joon quickly waved his hand.
When the staff heard his words, they nodded and started doing their job again. Lee Min-joon looked from the signboards of the booth and the interior.
“Do you need anything else?”
“Orsay’s Organizers had helps us a lot. Also, the companies from other booths lends their hands. There is no a competition about who sells a lot of products, this is just a fun festival that even companies really enjoyed participating.”
Lee Min-Joon didn’t insist and just replied while smiling.
“If you have a hard time or in need for something, please contact me right away.”
“Then I’ll get going now.”
The team leader said so without realizing it.
The employees, who were working hard and listening closely to the conversation between the two, shouted inside themselves. What do you mean already? You can’t say things like that!
“I just stopped by during my vacation. I think everyone is doing well. Then I’ll trust you with this. Cheer up, everyone. Oh, this is an incentive. Eat something delicious and expensive after you finish work.”
“Yes, thank you…”
CEO Lee Min-joon, who handed the envelope to the team leader, disappeared like a storm. He ended his visits so quickly that it overshadowed his initial nervousness.
The team leader sighed with relief and sat on a chair from a side.
After stopping by the warehouse to pick up some stuff, Choi Yeseul came back to the booth and found that CEO Lee Min-joon already left.
“CEO has already left.”
“Why did he leave so fast?”
“Isn’t the CEO on vacation right now?”
“Sigh, the CEO is really hardworking. To even come to work during his vacation.”
