Chapter 157: Chapter 156

Kwangsu quietly said to Hyunwoo, “It looks like this music video will draw more attention thanks to the seniors’ participation.”

“I think so.”

“Make sure you get the consent from the seniors. Without that, you might be in big trouble.”

That was something Hyunwoo thought out in advance. If their faces were seen in the music video without their consent because of the issue of infringement on their portrait rights, it could be trouble.

“Will do. I’ll get it by all means.”

Kwangsu shot the music video several times and then clapped his hands as if he was satisfied.

“Enough. I think that’s good enough. As soon as you’re done, please let me know before you release it in the music market. Let me have a final review of it.”

“Oh, I appreciate that, Kwangsu,” said Hyunwoo, confident that Kwangsu’s finishing touches would enhance the quality of the music video.

“In return, you should include my name in the video, Okay?”

“Of course, brother. Ha ha. Let me imprint it very big.”

At the conference room of the Talent Broadcasting company, four company officials and four experts were in a heated debate on the selection of the final candidate to be broadcasted on Children’s Day as a special animation program.

There were a total of seven animations to be scheduled for broadcasting, and there were 14 final candidates up for selection.

One of the experts had a puzzled look on his face after checking out the panelists’ points on each of the candidates.

“I can’t understand at all why you gave such a low score to No. 11. It is excellent in educational content, unique characters and the composition of the picture. I don’t see anything in that candidate to complain about.”

“That means other candidates are much better,” said one broadcasting official involved.

Still, the expert was not persuaded.

If the other candidates were superior, there must be competition among them for the final selection, but No. 11 candidate was much more superior to the others. In his mind, it looked much better than the others. In particular, the familiarity of the characters was outstanding.

At the end of the day, his puzzle was solved.

These guys are playing tricks again.

Obviously, a high-ranking official with the broadcasting company must have received kickbacks, but there was nothing that expert could do about it. Unless No. 11 was exceptionally good enough to beat other candidates, there was no point in making the case for it.

No. 11 was not chosen, after all.

With a bitter smile he murmured to himself, Yea, you guys get the kickbacks as much as you want. This is the last year you could get the bribe anyway.

This was the final year that they would select the final candidates through the debate among broadcasting officials and animation experts because there was controversy over the fairness of their selection process. So, next year they decided to form a special committee to ensure fairness.

The meeting was over. The final results would be announced one week later.

As soon as the meeting was over, however, Manager Kim with BNB entertainment company could immediately learn the results because Producer Hwang attended the meeting as an observer.

All proceeded as BNB wished.

Manager Kim raced to the president’s office to inform him of the good news. The president stayed calm as he felt the result was legitimate, given the huge kickbacks he gave to Producer Hwang and others. He realized that there was a big challenge waiting for him from now on.

“Did you said the company’s name was Ani & Funny?”

“Right. It’s located in Asan City.”

“Our lobbying paid off this year, but as the selection process changes next year, we might not get what we want from now on. Try to scout the core members of the company, so they can’t make any animations.”

“All of them?”

“You said most of them were contractors and only a few were full-time staff. So, if we scout some of them, the company can not operate normally. Just in case, make sure the contract period does not exceed two years. Got it?”

“Yes, sir. Let me go ahead and scout them.”

The next Monday, Hyunwoo went to the head office in Bono-dong.

With the homeroom teachers’ approval, Jinhon and Angela came to the Bono-dong office instead of the alternative music school. Though the school had strong disciplinary measures of its own, it gave the students as much autonomy as possible when it came to their musical activities.

Most kids involved with the Ani & Funny animation went to school, and the only graduate this year, Jihoon Kang, came to the office.

The music video was supposed to be produced with a mix of the actual video featuring their singing and dancing and the animation video. In other words, Jinhon and Angela were the main players while the characters of the animation would back them up as background dancers.

“As the actual video has been done, let’s work on the mixing as soon as the animation work is done. Can you help us, Manager Kyungsu?” said Hyunwoo.
