[Over the Rainbow, Academy Awards Campaign, Best Actor Poster Revealed!]
-So Whale Studios is actively pushing for Lee Seo-joon’s Best Actor nomination?
= Is it like that?
-Whale studio, uh, isn’t it?
= Why can’t you speak? Say it!
= No, I’m sorry if that doesn’t happen.
– Golden Globes, Academy, Lee Seo-joon must be busy.
Andaho handed Seojun the paperwork delivered by King’s Agency along with the script.
It was an easy-to-understand document that was sent by the Oscar team at Weil Studios to organize the Oscar season and the ‘normal schedule for winning the Oscars’, called the Oscar race.
Both the nominations and awards at the Academy Awards are decided by the voting rights of thousands of filmmakers, including directors, writers, and actors.
Films released in January and February were difficult to be chosen by voters unless they were very impressed because they were selected from movies released from January 1 to December 31.
What has been tacitly decided in the film industry is a set of rules that will be released starting in September if the work has artistry and workmanship.
“It’s called Oscar season.”
It was Oscar season.
Seojun, who was reading the documents, nodded. I knew it took a lot of marketing to release a movie, but I didn’t know that there was such an open way to win an award.
“Films that want to win an Oscar are usually released in the second half of the year. Well. So was Over the Rainbow released in October?”
It takes a long time for actors to learn the violin, but Over the Rainbow has worked tirelessly from filming to editing.
Unlike other movies that usually wait for release after filming and editing, it was released immediately after editing. It was a really fast pace considering that the shortest opening took several months and the longest one or two years.
Andaho agreed with Seojun’s words. As it was Whale Studios, a subsidiary of Marine Corporation, it would not have been sloppy to catch a single release date.
“It will be there too. Because there weren’t any great movies this year.”
It was the same with the documents sent by Whale Studios. Among the nominations predicted by Whale Studios and Marine Corp., no film was more successful than Over the Rainbow.
‘Well, the box office won’t determine the winner.’
Seojun nodded and read the next chapter.
“As much as the directors, writers, and actors voted for it, I was originally going to participate in various film festivals from September to promote it, but Over the Rainbow was filming at that time, so I couldn’t. The box office was as important as the awards ceremony, so it didn’t happen even during the release, so it seems to be starting quietly now.”
Andaho, who read the documents at Cocoa Entertainment in advance, explained. What I did not understand, I asked the King’s Agency separately.
“This puzzled me too.”
There was an interesting story in the document.
Channel [RAINBOW] uploaded two videos after the movie was released.
One video was taken by LA College of Music students, and the other was a video of them performing ‘Gray Music’ on stage before filming.
“okay. Because I played other songs on stage back then.”
The time to play one song was short, and the audience regretted the short concert. Seo-joon had nothing to say.
Even after filming was over, Seojun played a few more classical songs on stage. Among the several performance videos filmed in that way, Whale Studio uploaded only the ‘Grey Performance Song’ video.
“It’s easy to compare because it’s the same song.”
The difference between week 1-7 and week 8 busking, and the stage video.
Even though the atmosphere has changed, the presence and violin playing are noticeably different!
Look at the acting skills of our movie’s leading actor, Seo Jun-ri!
By uploading the 8th week video and the on-stage video, Whale Studio made it easier to recognize the difference between Seo-jun’s on-off and off-the-shelf differences that anyone could see.
In addition, Whale Studio accepted both editing and synthesizing of the video channel [RAINBOW].
Through you tubers and people who watch you tube, I hoped that the genius acting skills of the actress, Li Ra, who stood all over the world, would be known. And he hoped that fame would pass on to voters.
Whale Studios’ Oscar campaign was already underway.
“The Academy campaign is to promote the election to the people who have the right to vote, saying our film is great, our actors are the best, and Whale Studios and Kings Agency also think that the first round of voting is certain.”
“The second vote will be the key.”
“okay. Daejin luck this year was pretty good.”
Numerous films have been released, but none have been more successful than Over the Rainbow, and none have attracted people’s attention.
“In terms of the box office performance, our work is the best. The problem is workmanship and artistry. Each individual has a different value for workmanship and artistry.”
“It’s going to be different.”
“okay. Still, Over the Rainbow has good reviews from critics, so Whale Studios seems to be greedy.”
“Then what can I do?”
In response to Seo-jun’s question, Anda-ho gave Seo-jun the data he received from King’s Agency.
“Before participating in the Golden Globe Awards, I was told that all I had to do was interview and appear on a talk show. You and Catherine and Paul are too young to go to events, they say they’ll take care of it. This is an interview question and this is a talk show list. If any of these programs are good, please let me know. Of course, you don’t have to go to talk shows.”
Seo-jun looked at the talk show list first. The first talk show he wrote about was a talk show he watched with his mom and dad when Seo-joon was living in the United States.
This program is still running. I had a strange feeling. To be on a talk show you’ve only seen on TV.
Seojun, who was slowly reading the list down, said.
“I have my fans in the US, so if I go on a talk show, they will like it, right?”
“Are you only American fans? Fans all over the world like it when it comes out with subtitles.”
Seojun nodded at Andaho’s words.
“Then I will leave here.”
Seo-jun, who put down the talk show list, listened to the interview questionnaire this time.
“I have a lot more questions than I thought.”
Seo-jun read the first question out of 30 questions. Andaho, who read it first, laughed.
“It’s fun to read. There are a lot of small questions like the number you like or the food you don’t like. The Golden Globe Awards are in January, so you can write them down comfortably until then.”
“Yes. Daho hyung.”
Seo-joon with a pencil was writing down the answer to the first question, and then he looked up.
“But Daho hyung.”
“There are no actors at Whale Studio, so how do we promote it?”
“Well? Shall I ask you later?”
“Yes. I’m curious to see how they will promote it.”
But Andaho didn’t ask, but the answer arrived.
Not only for Seo-joon,
all over the world.
“… … Can’t we do our comeback like this, Eun-chan hyung?”
“… … no money.”
Seo Eun-chan answered Hwang Ye-jun’s question. Seo-joon and his hyungs’ eyes were still on the TV. It’s been a while since I’ve eaten with Brown and Black brothers, and the news on the store’s TV stopped everyone’s hands.
New York Times Square was shown on TV. Several screens installed in a large building turned black all at once, then illuminated someone. It was Seo Joon Lee.
A busking video appeared, and the news screen changed. London Piccadilly Circus Square. someone rained It was Seo Joon Lee. The news screen changed to Paris, Hanoi, and Seoul.
Not only outdoor advertisements in large buildings, but also posters that appear on subways in each country.
There were Lee and Gray Binnie who stood everywhere.
I couldn’t be ignorant of the constant buzzing on the news.
Just like before the movie was released, both Seo Jun and Cocoa Entertainment were mesmerized by the overwhelming volume.
“But Daho hyung. Can’t we just do it in the US?”
“I heard that the awards ceremony isn’t just in the US… … .”
It seemed that Whale Studios’ will to eat awards ceremony all over the world, as well as the Golden Globe Awards to be held in January, seemed to show.
* * *
A new year has passed and it is January.
In January, Seo-jun and his wife, Anda-ho, departed for the Golden Globes. Many cameras and people saw Lee Seo-joon at the airport.
-A little while ago, actor Lee Seo-joon headed to the departure hall. We wish you the best of luck at the Golden Globe Awards. The Golden Globe Awards will be broadcast live on MBS on January 7th. Hope to see you a lot.
Normally, the Golden Globe Awards are not broadcast, but because the movie ‘Over the Rainbow’ starring Seo-Jun Lee was nominated for a number of nominations, it was scheduled to be broadcast live.
[Actress Seo-Jun Lee, departure today!]
[Actor Lee Seo-joon, airport fashion! Still love monsters!]
[On January 7th, the Golden Globe Awards will be broadcast live on MBS!]
[MBS, complete preparations for the Golden Globe Awards!]
-It’s not even a Korean movie, but it feels like a Korean movie haha
= ㅋㅋ Because Lee Seo-joon is a Korean actor ㅋㅋ
-MBS said it was a riot ㅋㅋ They said that they caught a big number in a short time, so they were digging into the history of the Golden Globe Awards.
– Rumors that other broadcasting stations that have lost their broadcasting rights to MBS by some difference are also going crazy… … .
= It is a broadcast that will go down in history even if it receives an award or not.

On the cozy stage, there were two soft sofas and a small table. When Valeria appeared from the side of the stage, the audience applauded.
“Five. Today, the welcome is warmer than usual. Yes. I know. What a great man we called! It deserves applause. Isn’t it?”
– Call me now!
“Even if you don’t rush me like that, I want to call you right away. The production team gave me a lot of modifiers to describe this actor, but I can only describe it in one word. Let’s bring our superstar!”
Valeria threw the script aside and shouted.
“This is Korea’s ‘Grand-Gun Mama’, the genius violinists Gray and Seo Jun-Lee!”
The production team, already liberated from Valeria’s progress, beckoned Seo-joon, who was waiting behind the stage. After watching Valeria’s talk show, Seo-jun giggled and went up on the stage.
-I’m a fan!!
When Seojun appeared on stage, the audience shouted to leave. For the fans meeting for the first time, everyone felt the aura of a superstar at the sight of Seojun exuding a lot of aura.
“Come on. Lee.”
“nice to meet you. Valeria. Call me Jun.”
“okay. June. Nice to meet you. Sit here.”
Valeria and Seojun sat down.
“How does it feel to be on your first talk show?”
“I didn’t know that I would be called ‘Great War Mama’ here.”
“Five. If you are a fan of Jun, this is definitely a drama you should watch. I do not know other words, but I am memorizing the words ‘Household Clinic’ and ‘Seongnyeong Grand Gunmama’ clearly. Yes?”
– Overlord Mama!
Seo-jun burst out at the nicknames of Daegun Mama from all over the place. Five. My star is smiling! Everyone called Seo-Jun over and over with excited faces.
“now. calm down. I’m only going to show Jun’s smile like this. Of course, the ratings will be huge, but we need to see more diverse sides.”
Everyone nodded at Valeria’s words and closed their mouths. Seo-joon, who was smiling happily, also laughed so much that he wiped away the tears.
“Let’s get things done first and fill our self-interest.”
As if Valeria really thought so, the story of ‘Over the Rainbow’ was finished in an instant before Seojun could even say a few words. I put everything that Yongkedo Whale Studio asked me to do.
Whale Studio’s PR team staff, who came to the station with Seo-Jun and Anda-Ho, wrapped their hair. Andaho looked bewildered. I was monitoring a talk show, but it wasn’t like this.
“Is this show really like this?”
“sometimes. very occasionally. When a star that Valeria really likes comes in, it’s like this.”
The producers shrugged. The public relations staff mumbled with a half resigned face.
“It’s wrong to want Jun not to go there.”
