Top Star Lee Gun-Woo - Chapter 43: End (1)
Chapter 43: End (1)
Naturally, Gun-woo’s fans began to increase rapidly.
His wound was almost healed as he also absorbed the girl’s black energy, and his self-healing ability increased rapidly due to his internal energy.
All the staff on the set had seen the video, so they were worried about Gun-woo’s condition.
They were even moved when Gun-woo started filming casually and was rather considerate of the staff.
Meanwhile, the viewership ratings broke through 33%.
The song Gun-woo sang continued to be number one on music sites even though he was not involved in any musical activity, and in fact, he even took first place on a music program.
Of course, Gun-woo couldn’t go there because he was filming, and according to YS’s policy, they had no plans to go on stage.
Gun-woo’s nicknames have also increased considerably.
Nicknames such as Squid Maker, Existing Assassin, Highest Dignity Actor, Flower Scholar, Real Man of Steel, Honey Voice, and an actor who took the first place in music as a hobby were all referring to Gun-woo.
These days, it has been solidified as the nickname “Lord God Gun-woo”.
Anyway, it was Moonlight Lake and Gun-woo, which had overlapping slopes in many ways.
* * *
Due to the girl’s incident, the filming was delayed, so he had to keep his time busy.
Moonlight Lake also received more praises and the ratings continued to rise.
The 16-episode Moonlight Lake was also running towards the end.
Gun-woo melted his internal energy from time to time while filming, and as a result, it all melted and perfectly established himself as Gun-woo’s chi.
The absorbed emotions were contained using Gun-woo’s Self-isolation Spiritual Accumulation method, so he could take it out at any time.
It was a very dangerous weapon.
If he infuses those black emotions with all his strength, the target will not be able to overcome the frustration and despair and will kill themself.
A martial artist is capable of handling the inner strength or a person who has attained spiritual enlightenment can defend it, but it is certainly rare in modern society.
‘There should be no use for it in anything other than reference for acting.’
Gun-woo was well aware of the dangers of his own power.
He recognized that he only needs to use it in a positive way.
It was his thought he had while saving the girl.
Had it not been for him, the girl would have been dead or crippled.
Gun-woo thought that saving the girl might not be a coincidence, but some kind of work.
‘I may be interpreting it too much, but…’
It was important that he did what he could.
He had the chance to meet the girl, and fortunately, she showed a smile.
The girl’s parents were also financially responsible, but they were bright.
Because of that incident, their relationship between them as a family became stronger.
The people involved were definitely arrested, and the girl was brightened by Gun-woo’s clean removal of those emotions.
Gun-woo could feel the warm feeling of yellow.
‘She said she wanted to be an actor.’
She said she wanted to become an actor like him, but he felt strange.
Gun-woo did not have any professional pride for being an actor.
His professional knowledge was also on the low side.
The fact that he became an actor was a coincidence, and it happened all of a sudden.
However, he felt strange when the girl told him that she would learn and wanted to be like him.
He was happy, but he felt a little sad.
To be honest, he was acting for money and martial arts.
He didn’t have any professional beliefs.
Gun-woo thought that he should do his best even now.
So far, he was ashamed to have acted with a clumsy attitude.
“Hey, why do you have such nice skin?”
Jin-hui sat quietly, contemplating her inside, and said to Gun-woo, who was lost in thought.
Gun-woo opened his eyes.
Jin-hui was standing with a hot pack and a script.
The falling snow and Jin-hui’s appearance matched very well.
“Aren’t you sick?”
“It doesn’t hurt.”
Gun-woo laughed at Jin-hui’s concern.
Jin-hui looked worriedly at the wounded area of Gun-woo that was hidden by his clothes.
‘It’s a snowy reed field… I don’t have good memories.’
In order to film the action scene of the last episode, Gun-woo was touring the countryside and filming outdoors, but he is currently in the plains.
It was a field of reeds covered in snow, and it was quite spectacular.
Gunwoo briefly took a breathtaking breakfast to get the clean energy from the reed beds, but fell into deep thought while observing his insides.
The internal energy, which is the secret of the Self-isolation Spiritual Accumulation method, was very safe against external interference, so even if there was contact between them, he didn’t lack the ability to make sure that it’ll be safe.
However, there was a downside in that it was slow if it wasn’t emotional energy.
Jin-hui smiled like an auntie and rubbed Gun-woo’s cheek with her finger.
Gun-woo’s skin was clean with no blemishes.
It looked as if his pores had disappeared.
Not only was it good, but it was resilient.
Even when they were filming at night, it didn’t feel greasy at all, and Gun-woo’s appearance seemed to be getting cleaner and cleaner.
His red lips were particularly attractive.
It was the positive effect of the Self-isolation Spiritual Accumulation method.
“Let’s take a picture. Can I upload?”
“Do as you wish.”
Jin-hui and Gun-woo sat side by side and tried to take a selfie.
Leon, who rushed to see the scene, fell into a reed field.
The two took a picture regardless.
It snowed quite a bit and reached his calves, and the action seemed to be quite difficult.
It was a scene that did not apply to Gun-woo, though.
But the martial arts director and action actors were full of will to make the best scenes.
As it was the last filming, writer Go In-suk and other important actors who were not filming had arrived.
The ending scene had already been filmed elsewhere, and the last action scene of the schedule was filmed.
Originally, filming was to be completed with a studio recording, but the action filming was delayed due to Gun-woo’s injury.
In this scene, Gun-woo dies.
Leon was acquitted and his identity restored.
Park Dae-gam also died, but Leon was more obsessed with revenge, trying to kill everyone who was even a little bit involved.
In particular, Gun-woo was the assassin who killed the people around Leon, so he wanted to kill him even more
In addition, his feeling of betrayal towards Jin-hui was so great that he tried to kill her too.
It was because he thought that she was a woman whom he once loved, but now she betrayed him and went with the assassin.
The fact that Jin-hui’s parents were related to Park Dae-gam also played a part.
While protecting Jin-hui, Gun-woo killed all the soldiers that Leon was leading and left the final episode by playing a double role with Leon.
Jin-hui also holds Gun-woo’s body and freezes to death on the spot.
It was a rare sad ending these days.
Before Gun-woo joined, the ending was for Leon and Jin-hui to have a happy ending, but according to Gun-woo, writer Go In-suk completely changed the content.
Oddly enough, the story now is much stronger and better than the story she had crafted in the past.
It was also fortunate that the devices at the beginning played an unexpected role of reversal.
“Let’s start shooting!”
The FD’s voice was heard.
Supporting actors were seated and the action actors warmed up.
PD Kim Tae-yoo and the martial arts director were also keen to create the most spectacular action in the last episode.
Gun-woo checked the overall movement with martial arts director Jung Mun-woon.
Jung Mun-woon was completely following Gun-woo’s opinion.
This is because he acknowledged that Gun-woo showed some things and that the depth of his martial arts far surpassed him.
In addition, due to the girl incident, his evaluation of Gun-woo pierced the sky.
It was difficult for even the best action actor to show that level of movement.
His body movements are also just body movements, but his guts and courage that an action actor should have was something that could not be imitated.
“Gunwoo-ya. Are you okay?”
“Yes, no problem.”
Looking at Jung Mun-woon, he drew a satisfied smile.
The action scene in the last episode was quite long as it was the last episode.
Even as Jung Mun-woon, it felt heavy, but the climax part went with a long take.
If they make one mistake, they will be physically burdened even if it takes time.
For this reason, Gun-woo and the action actors rehearsed before they started shooting in earnest.
After the rehearsal, the actual filming began.
‘This sword is the last.’
The sword that Gun-woo was holding was a fairly elaborately crafted false sword, but it has a pretty good axis, except that it had no blade.
The balance was quite good, and the length of the blade was just right, so it fit well in Gun-woo’s hand.
This time, Gun-woo was going to use a more crude but rough sword than his glamorous swordsmanship.
It was a means to further emphasize his desperateness.
The cue sign was put in and the last filming began.
The first scene started with Gun-woo and Jin-hui running through a reed field.
Gun-woo and Jin-hui ran as if they were being chased, but Jin-hui fell down with a scream.
Because an arrow flew.
The scene where the arrows fly will be treated as CG, and as soon as they fall, the makeup team will come and put on her wounded makeup.
Her bare skin was exposed and she looked quite cold.
“Oh, it’s cold!”
Jin-hui smiled bashfully when Gun-woo gave him a hot pack, closed her eyes slightly, and threw it in Geon-woo’s face.
Gun-woo’s sword rose quickly and bounced off the snowball with the sword.
The snowball went straight into Jin-hui’s mouth.
When Gun-woo and the surrounding staff laughed out loud, Jin-hui turned into an absurd expression and finally laughed.
“Ugh… I want to drink vodka.”
“There’s a closing party afterwards.”
“Heh, directors! I don’t know if I can walk home today!”
Jin-hui cried out at Gun-woo’s words.
Everyone, including producer Kim Tae-yu, Jung Mun-woon, and assistant director, who knew Jin-hui’s drinking, trembled.
Leon, trembling in loneliness and cold, had long been forgotten.
The full-fledged action scene shooting has begun.
Gun-woo, who was looking at Jin-hui, who could no longer walk, blocked Jin-hui and drew his sword.
Dropping the scabbard on the floor, he looked very determined.
Leon got off his horse and looked at Geon-woo with a fishy expression on his face.
Leon’s acting also improved quite a bit, so it wasn’t awkward.
That alone was a great development.
The soldiers started running.
The accumulated snow hindered their advances, but on the contrary, it made the scene even worse.
When he raised his aura, his sword flowed out.
Gun-woo faced a number of soldiers and began to fight fiercely.
He cut the soldiers roughly and kicked them.
As he rotated his body, the snow scattered, creating a blizzard.
A rough action followed.
In the process, Gun-woo was drenched in blood.
Of course, it wasn’t actually a cut, it was makeup.
Gun-woo put on a wounded makeup and started filming an action scene with a long take.
It was a scene in which he fought fiercely with Leon and his soldiers.
The Self-isolation Spiritual Accumulation method was creating a resonance of emotions.
In response to Gun-woo’s speculation and resonance, the eyes of the action actor and Leon came to life.
It became a bloody atmosphere, as if they were in a real war.
Martial arts director Jung Mun-woon and PD Kim Tae-yoo, who were watching, also held hands.
The camera director was also affected and took a rough breath.
Gun-woo’s sword moved.
It was faster than when they had a rehearsal with their eyes wide open.
The senses of the action actors facing him were also raised to the highest level, so they were able to respond.
The sword went back and forth, and his desperate action began.
As he rolled over the white snow covered in blood, the snow turned pink and then gradually grew darker.
The occasional falling snow was dreamy.
