“Elder. Do I have to write this down in advance?”
The reporter, who was pounding on the keyboard, looked at the senior looking at the phone with a dissatisfied expression.
“Why is it difficult?”
“I haven’t announced it yet, but I’m going to write an article like this first, so I’m really excited.”
“You have to prepare it in advance so you can upload it right away. There were a lot of nomination articles.”
“That’s it! That’s because it makes you feel more comfortable.”
“Still, until the announcement, you should write down the articles that were nominated and the articles that were not. Everything else is in preparation. It’s too late to write an article after the announcement.”
He sighed and put his hand on the keyboard again. As I tried to write a grim article that was likely to become a reality soon, I lost strength in my body.
“When is the announcement?”
“a little bit later.”
As the senior said, after a while, the Academy Awards nominees were revealed.
The two reporters were at a loss for words as they quickly read down the list. Did I see it wrong, I rubbed my eyes, but the name didn’t change.
“… … Should I rewrite the article?”
“First, let’s start with Lee Seo-joon’s article. I don’t think this will end there.”
The voters, the academy, and the media from all over the world who were watching with interest how controversial it would be, and the Koreans who were terrified.
It was such a surprising and unexpected result that people all over the world who were waiting for the announcement of the nominations were at a loss for words.
[Actor Seo-Jun Lee, the youngest nominee for the Academy Award for Best Actor!]
[Actress Seo-Jun Lee, the first Korean to be nominated for an Academy Award!]
[Over the Rainbow, nominated for a total of 7 Academy Awards!]
[Best Picture, Best Screenplay, Best Director, Best Music, Best Sound Editing, Best Theme Song, and Best Actor!]
[Academy Awards nominations announced! Candidates never seen before!]
[The list of candidates is whiter than ever!]
[Is there such a wonderful color color?!]
The nominations for the Academy Awards have been announced. The nominations announced with much interest are getting louder than ever. As there are many films with white actors in the lead, there are many white actors who won the Best Actor and Best Actress awards. However, out of 10 nominations for Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress, only 5 white actors were nominated. Four black actors and one Asian actor (of Korean descent!) were nominated. Even though they showed great performances, the actors who never thought they would be nominated are crying.>
Academy Awards nominations
Best Actor: 3 Whites, 1 Black (Milan Chelan), 1 Asian (Lee Seo-joon)
Best Actress: 4 white, 1 black
Best Supporting Actor: 3 white, 2 black
Best Supporting Actress: 2 White, 2 Black, 1 Asian (Jessica Kim)
-… … Until last year, the majority were white.
– Seriously surprised. How do you change so drastically?
– But when I see the actors acting, I understand. I have all the actors I thought I did well this year.
-It’s the first time I’ve seen the announcement of candidates as news, but even the list is not common.
-Seojun is changing the world!
=… … that’s a bit haha
= But it seems to be true that advertising all over the world started.
=ㅇㅇ There are only Oscar stories here and there. I wasn’t interested either, but I’m curious about the result.
Surprised by the academy’s dazzling change, the press around the world was busy pulling out articles.
[The first nomination for Best Actor, Milan Chelan, who lost his temper three years ago!]

-at Las! How I love Milan Chelan! I still can’t forget that day 3 years ago! I was so hot that day that I couldn’t even sleep!
– Still, it’s scary because it has changed so drastically;
-… … Do you think you will go back next year?
= It could be. Still, since I showed you that you can change this much, won’t it change?
= It will take a while. 🙁
= The beginning is important.

Richard Bowen and Palon Park, looking at the nominations announced at the Academy Awards ceremony, shed tears.
The operation did not succeed, and the fatal blow exploded.
“It seems like things are getting too big.”
“It’s a good thing. Do you think we can expect an award?”
“It is good news, but also sad news. The fee would go up tremendously just for the nomination, but the award… … .”
At Palon’s words, Richard rubbed his forehead. Looking back, it was. Seo Joon-Lee’s acting fee was cheap compared to her popularity. Of course, it is a story that is cheaper compared to Hollywood actors.
So, I was thinking of sending a bunch of scripts and synopses to Seo Joon Lee. I was planning to make a bunch of movies before the fee went up, but the plan went so well.
The Prime Minister, Jun-Ri Seo, who thought it would take at least five years, came right next month. Before Seo-jun’s fee went up, Richard Bowen, who had a plan to make a lot of money, struggled to open his mouth.
“… … How far did we reach the contract with Jun?”
“Up to Shadowman 3.”
“… … .”
“That one is the end.”
“… … .”
At Palon Park’s pumpkin-like words, Richard Bowwin buried his face in the palm of his hand.

[Title: I informed my dad about the nomination.]
“Eva? What are you filming?”
The black actor, Milan Chelan, who was reading the script, tilted his head. I heard Milan Chelen’s daughter, Eva Chelen laugh. The camera shook at that smile.
“dad. You just announced an Oscar nomination.”
“… … okay?”
A slight bitterness passed over Milan Chelan’s face.
Three years ago, the naive Milan Chelan who trusted the media as a potential candidate was no longer there. With no hope of being nominated for any performance, Milan Chelan took no interest at all.
“I see. Today was the announcement day.”
I couldn’t be there so I didn’t see it. Come to think of it, there was an actor like me this year too.
Actors and films that opened in mid-October and changed travel trends throughout the release. An Asian actor who is said to be a potential candidate here and there.
Seo Jun-Lee of ‘Over the Rainbow’.
“Is Lee up for the nomination?”
Fearing that a child younger than him would suffer the same injury, Milan Chelan, who was sitting on the sofa, asked cautiously. The daughter, who looked like she was about to cry, answered with a wide smile.
“Huh! I was nominated.”
“Awesome! very good Lee’s acting was great.”
“And Dad came too.”
With the father’s genuinely happy face, the daughter cried and said in the end. Milan Chelen’s hand trembled as he grabbed the script.
“Dad was nominated too!”
Eva handed the Pine Pad to Dad, who looked at him with a look of disbelief.
[Nominated for Best Actor] Milan Chelan, seeing a picture of herself with four actors, could not raise her head throughout the video and touched her picture.
[I wanted to take a picture of my dad happy, but he didn’t listen to my face in the end. Dad, congratulations on the nomination!]
– Milan! I like Milan very much.
– I liked this movie too! very!
-The Academy Awards are getting people’s attention right from the announcement of the nominees.
[Title: Congrats on the nomination! Surprise Party!]
“Jessica! I know that? There is an actor who was nominated among Asian actors this time.”
“Ah! Are you Seojun!? Seojun was nominated!?”
While working out, Jessica Kim approached her friend with a broad smile. When my friend said yes, Jessica Kim laughed happily.
“Because I knew I would get it if it was Seojun! Even if you see the performance, you can’t not vote!”
“And one more.”
“what? really?! for a moment… … Asian actor… … who is… … .”
Jessie Kim, who was very happy with the appearance of another Asian candidate, stopped pointing at the Asian actors who appeared in this year’s movie one by one.
Jessica Kim, who seemed to stop and breathe like a broken machine, was kindly spoken to by a friend again.
“it’s you! our super star! Jessica Kim!”
At the same time, fireworks exploded everywhere. Friends who had been hiding congratulated me and handed Jessica Kim a bouquet of flowers.
Jessica Kim, who had been distracted by the flowers piled up in her arms and the noisy congratulations of her friends, finally understood her friend’s words and started to cry.
-Congratulations on the nomination!! I enjoyed the movie!
-I’m a Jessica fan! Please do more activities in the future!
* * *
Only thirty minutes after the list was released.
In response to the pouring congratulatory messages and calls, Seo-joon saw the cell phone battery shrinking and had to connect the charger.
Because of the short charger cord, Seo-joon, who was stuck on the wall outlet and sent a reply, saw the name on the screen and answered the call.
Nara tilted her head as she looked at Seo-joon squirming in the corner.
“Why is Seojun like that over there? Do you have a spare battery?”
Seo Eun-hye and Lee Min-joon burst into laughter at Nara’s words.
“You seem to have forgotten that you have a spare battery?”
“It must have been that Seojun was so excited. Ten of us were also in a riot. How excited is Seojun?”
“but. I was so excited, too, that I ordered the Kings Market sale.”
“… … Is that okay?”
At Nara’s words, the couple was at a loss for words. Was that the one you called earlier? The scale of excitement is too different?
It was on a completely different scale from the Hollywood star who was so happy that he completely forgot the auxiliary battery and wiggled in the corner.
“it’s okay. are you okay. It became known through a talk show that I was an acquaintance with Seojun, what? If it was a Golden Globe Award or an Oscar nomination, everyone would understand. Maybe Seo-joon, who is excited like us, will come to the market to spend money on fans. Conversely, Seo-joon’s name may become more known through a sale event. look. The article has already been published.”
[King’s Market, start of sale event for actor Seo Jun-ri’s nomination!]
[King’s Market, Sale Event Period!]
[The relationship between actor Seo Jun-ri and King’s Market President, Nara Kim!]
[Congratulations on actor Seo Jun-ri’s Golden Globe award, nomination celebration sale!]
“Our company’s employees are competent, so we will run the event without losing money.”
The couple nodded at the words of Nara.
‘The employees here are suffering a lot because of the boss.’
Kim Hee-sang, who had brought a terrifying monster design to the staff yesterday and the same day, suddenly had itchy ears.
“Who is talking to me? Why is Seo-joon on the phone?”
Subin, who was walking around the living room, holding the minotaur’s leg and dragging it, at the sound of Seojun’s eyes lit up. Then I ran to Kim Hee-sang, who was sitting on the sofa.
“dad! Is it my brother?”
“Subin, wait a minute! Daddy will do it for you!”
“Seojuni hyung!? Are you playing with Soubini?”
As Kim Hee-sang raised her cell phone from afar, Kim Soo-bin, 31 months old, found the target and her eyes lit up.
Climbing up the sofa, he grabbed Kim Hee-sang’s arm and stretched out his full arm with the phone. When the target could not be reached, Subin pushed his father with his whole body and called for his brother.
“Brother! Can you hear me?”
“Because Daddy does it… … .”
While Kim Hee-sang was feeling the weight of her son who had grown up quickly, Seo Jun-ri’s agency, Cocoa Entertainment, and Seo Eun-chan were calling with a haggard face.
Yep. Seo-jun, who was answering, looked at the place where Mom, Dad, and Aunt Nara were sitting.
“I want Uncle Chan to live.”
Seo Eun-hye, Lee Min-joon, and Nara burst into laughter at Seo-joon’s words. The King’s Agency was also in a state of chaos. Andaho was there now.
This is the situation in the United States as well, so I guessed what the situation would be like in Korea and Cocoa Entertainment.
“I can’t go to Korea until the awards ceremony is over, so tell me to cheer up.”
“Mom, be strong. Uncle.”
-sister!! I can’t even go home today! We can’t even see Eunsoo!
“But wouldn’t it be more difficult to come back to the United States after returning home now, brother-in-law?”
Everyone nodded at Lee Min-joon’s words.
Because it was true, Seo Eun-chan just moaned over the phone. However, looking at the current situation, there was no way that the voice asking for help could not come out.
“boss! Reporters at the front door!”
“Seojun wants to send a present at the fan cafe, but the amount is too much!”
“The broadcasting station has also appeared! Here’s a live broadcast!”
Tired-faced employees screamed. There was only one thing Seo Eun-chan could do in the chaos. I grabbed my phone tightly.
– Save my uncle, Seo Jun-ah.
Everyone burst out laughing at that.
Seo-jun talked with Seo Eun-chan step by step and set up a broadcast schedule and an interview schedule. With a proposal like this, it would have been fine until the day of the awards ceremony.
“It is not certain.”
-okay. Can I talk to Daho-san?
– How about a gift? I think the lobby of the company will be full with just the present we are talking about.
“I can’t even write it all by myself, so what if I ask you to donate it?”
-okay. Oh, Seo Joon-ah.
– Congratulations on your nomination.
“Hehehe. thanks. Uncle.”
It was a pleasant word to hear.
After Uncle Chan’s phone call was over, Uncle Heesang got a call. It was a video call. Hee-sang, congratulating him on the nomination, called out to Hyung-ah in a loud voice, pointing his face into the camera to the extent that he could not hear Uncle Hee-sang.
Seo-joon smiled broadly and talked with Soo-bin. Nara tilted her head as she looked at Subin, who eagerly explained something, and Seo Joon, who nodded in response.
“Does Seo-joon understand all of that? I have no idea what you are talking about.”
“He seemed to understand everything. That’s why Subin and Eunsoo seem to like Seojun so much.”
“Is Soobin four years old and Eunsu two years old?”
“Eunsu is already two years old!”
“In terms of the number of months, it is 12 months.”
Nara, who was talking with the couple about Seo Eun-chan and Kim Su-ryun’s daughter, Seo Eun-soo, asked Seo Joon after the call.
“But can’t we really have a nomination party? Let’s make it very big this time. Calling all the Shadowman and Rainbow staffs!”
“You also had a Golden Globe Awards party a while ago. Nara Aunt.”
“Still, the party is fun.”
“Then let’s do it after the Academy Awards.”
“Well. how is it? Can you take it?”
At Nara’s words, Seo Eun-hye and Lee Min-joon’s eyes turned to Seo-joon. Neither the country nor the couple were concerned this time. I had a good feeling. Seojun smiled brightly as well.
“It feels good. I think I can get it.”
“then. Are you ready for the awards ceremony?”
The country stood up.
“Are you the first Korean Academy Award winner? I have to polish it off and put it on the stage! From your toes to your hair, I’ll make it very shiny.”
“Should I buy some clothes?”
“Aren’t you going to buy clothes? Shoes too.”
“Probably, it will come in soon.”
As Nara said, until the day of the Academy Awards, numerous brands of clothes, accessories and shoes were delivered to King’s Agency.
