FI Ch22

There was a strange silence. Su-Gyeom never imagined that he had cause the silence. No, he didn’t even realize that the room was quiet in the first place.

There was an awkward silence for a few seconds. “Hey! Song Su-Gyeom, what about me? Why am I the only one not included? You don’t like me? Am I the only one living separately? That’s too much!” Min-Seong, who was drunk, raised his voice as if he was upset. If it wasn’t for his words, the silence might have continued for a while.

“Oh, that’s right. I forgot about Min-Seong-hyung. Right, I like Min-Seong-hyung too. And I like Jae-Hyun-hyung, Mingi-hyung, and Song-Ha-noona. Oh, why do I have so many people I like?”

Su-Gyeom, who mentioned all the other managers and stylists, lamented himself. There was still a strange atmosphere in the space. Only two people, Su-Gyeom and Min-Seong, did not notice the change and continued the conversation.

“You know, director…”

“Yes, tell me. Su-Gyeom.”

“When will our dating ban be lifted?”

All eyes in the room were turned to Su-gyeom again due to the sudden love story.

Despite all the surprised eyes of the group, Su-Gyeom, who was drunk, only stared at Seo-Wook with a puppy-like expression.

“Su-gyeom, why do you want to date all of a sudden? Do you want to be in a relationship? Do you like someone? Who caught your eyes?”

Sun-Wook asked in a friendly voice.

He had a smile on his face, but it gave him a cool feeling.

“No, it’s not like that.If you tell me not to do something, it just make me want to do it more, do you understand? “Even while drunk, Su-Gyeom, who felt that Sun-Wook was different from usual, muttered back as if he were making an excuse.

Then, Sun-Wook rolled up the corners of his mouth. “Why, you can tell me. If there’s someone you like, I’ll listen to it first and decide. Tell me.”

‘No, it’s not like that I don’t have anyone.”

Su-Gyeom, who was drunk and out of his mind, shook his head this time, saying that he did not like anyone, unlike everyone who had lamented that he liked them.

“Are you sure you don’t have any?”

“I know… If I have one, I’ll tell the director first.”

“Okay, you have to.”

“Yes, I will.”

“Yes, you’re good.”

“Yes, I’m good.” At Sun-Wook’s compliment, Su-Gyeom quickly laughed, forgetting that he was just embarrassed. But the laughter was also brief. Su-Gyeom soon covered his mouth with one hand.

“You know, Lee-Gyeom,” Su Gyeom mumbled with his mouth covered and called Igyeom next to him. ”


“I feel like throwing up, um…”

“Ah, why are you looking for me only when it’s like this? Hey, swallow it, swallow it!”

Lee-Gyeom shouted urgently and immediately put Su-Gyeom around him and started running to the bathroom.Unfortunately, however, as soon as he arrived at the bathroom, the accident happened even before they had entered the bathroom.


All Su-Gyeom remembered from the day was that he vomited on Lee-Gyeom’s back.

He couldn’t remember the details of the conversation because this is the first time he drank alcohol.

“…Yes, I understand what you’re against, Lee-Gyeom. But why is Tai-Won-Hyung! What about you, Sol? Yoo-chan, why are you against!” Su-Gyeom exclaimed, looking back at Tae-Won, Hansol, and Yoo-chan in order of injustice.

To their surprise, Su-gyeom had an accident that day, but Sun-Wook lifted U-PITE’s prohibition on some conditions.

The terms were simple.The other members seem to have quite a lot of alcohol control, so they can drink. But not Su-Gyeom.

However, it was a condition that Su-Gyeom could drink with the permission of all members.Therefore, the other members were relatively free to drink, but Su-Gyeom was not.

Of course, the members also felt sorry to leave Su-Gyeom alone and have a drinking party, but they have never drunk without Su-Gyeom.

“Do you want me to mix Sprite with Coke?”

“Are you kidding?”

“I’m serious. I’d rather you drink a weird bomb drink.” At Han-Sol’s words, Su-Gyeom’s eyes became fierce, and soon his shoulders drooped.

Of course, Su-gyeom also had a terrible experience crawling around the next day with a hangover. However, he missed the unique taste of alcohol that could not be produced by drinking alone.However, as the members objected in unison, there was no other way to do it alone.

“Please mix all the cider, Mirinda, and coke.”


Sugyeom, who gave up halfway said in resignation, and Han-Sol’s expression brightened. He really poured all sorts of carbonic acid into a glass of soda to create an unknown liquid.

“Oh, the color looks pretty bad.”

“It should taste like carbonated.”

“That’s right. I’ll cry if the drink tastes bad.”

Su-Gyeom took Han-Sol’s drink while grumbling.

The pungent drink stimulated not only the mouth but also the throat.

“Oh… that’s not good.”

“It’s because of your mood.” Han-Sol replied, avoiding Su-Gyeom’s fierce eyes.

Su-Gyeom grumbled silently with his mouth only, and then lifted the chopsticks again, which he had put down after strengthening his mind to eat meat diligently.

“Do you want to drink that much?”

At Yoo-Chan’s words, Su-Gyeom’s face turned toward him. A careful voice sounded like a ray of hope. Su-Gyeom nodded his head in a hurry.

“Then I’m for it.”

“Hey, Do Yoo-Chan!

Han-Sol freaked out and called Yoo-Chan’s name. However, Yoo-chan only shrugged his shoulders, and was not disturbed at all.

Han-Sol, who saw the scene, responded that it was amazing.

“Hey, what are you thinking?”

“Su-Gyeom says he wants to drink.”


“If he says he likes it, I like it, too.”

“I guess it’s not the same with Han-Sol?”


Han-Sol asked back at Yoo-Chan’s words. Han-Sol’s expression hardened for a moment, but he glanced at Su-Gyeom and quickly loosened his firm expression.

“How could that be? If you like it, of course I do..”

“Yoo-Chan and Sol. So you’re in favor, too?”

“Oh, no, that’s…”

“You said you liked me, too!”Su-Gyeom didn’t miss the opportunity and hung on Han-Sol’s words.Han-Sol seemed embarrassed and covered his forehead, and soon sighed for a long time.

“Okay, do as you please.”

“Yes, two agreedd.”

There are two people left!

Su-gyeom, who finally got Han-Sol’s permission, sang cheerfully inside.

Of course, it is difficult to make the remaining two fall because they are Tae-Won and Lee-Gyeom, but he already felt successful just by getting half of the member’s permission.



“You like me, too, don’t you?”

“That logic doesn’t work for me.”As expected, Tae-Won was a strong player. Even before Su-Gyeom spoke properly, Tae-won coldly blocked his words.Looking at Tae-won, who is only focused on grilling meat without making eye contact,Su-gyeom felt competitive.

Su-Gyeom leaned against Tae-Won’s arm.

“Oh, you don’t like me then? ”

“Even that logic doesn’t work. ”

“I like you.I hope you like me, too. ”

“Wow… When did Song Su-Gyeom become a fox like this?”

“Oh, what do you mean a fox? I just said what I really wanted to say.” Su-gyeom grinned at Tae-Won’s response. Apparently, he was also more than half way over. Su-gyeom decided to drive this momentum and hit a chain game.

“Please like me as much as I like you. Okay?”

“I’m going crazy, really.”

It was a conversation that only asked him to let him drink in the end, but Tae-won seemed to be in deep trouble enough to disturb his head

“Hey, you can’t fall for this.” Lee-Gyeom tried to grab Tae-won’s shaking heart urgently.However, it was after Tae-won was already caught in Su-Gyeom’s hands and was swayed by him.

“Yeah, You are not going to die from drinking something, right? Drink, drink.”

“Yes, I love you.”Finally, with the permission that fell, Su-Gyeom confessed his love to Tae-won by blowing a hand kiss.

The air froze for a moment, but Su-Gyeom, who was already delighted, could not have noticed it.

“Hey, wait.”


“Are you saying you love him just because he gave you permission to drink?”

“Yeah, but what?”In response to Lee-Gyeom’s overwhelming response, Su-Gyeom confidently replied as if asking what was the problem. Lee-Gyeom burst out laughing at the attitude.

“Isn’t your love cheap?”

“What does it matter if my love is cheapor not… Why, do you want to receive my love, too?”

Su-Gyeom, who was complaining coldly, quickly changed his attitude when he realized that he had to get Lee-Gyeom’s permission on the way. At first, he was brusque, so from the middle, he softened his voice as if he was trying to seduce him and even blinked his big eyes.

Su-Gyeom, who saw Lee-Gyeom avoiding looking atg him as if he was embarrassed, found confidence, thinking that he could push ahead like this.Su-gyeom, full of confidence, looked at Cha-gyeom and winked playfully.

“It’s true that because you can’t answer, right?”

“Lee-Gyeom, you’re hungry for my love too, right? You should’ve said it. Hey, I’m in the mood. Since we’re official, I can give you a real kiss, not just a hand kiss. How about that?”


I’m not sure if it’s
Su-Gyeom or Soo-Gyeom
Yu-Chan or Yoo-Chan
Yi-Gyeom or Igyeom

But I would stick with the one I used first, unless you guys are deeply bothered by it or someone is willing to help me edit this. I really need help with editing, though it would be a volunteer work. All revenue from this would be for purchasing raws and site maintenance. Update would be irregular as I have other projects


Update: My friend said it’s Lee-Gyeom so I’ll use that instead of Yi-Gyeom

A Failed Idol’s Rise to Bottom

A Failed Idol’s Rise to Bottom

망돌의 공식 수가 되겠습니다
Score 8
Status: Ongoing Type: Author: Released: 2022 Native Language: Korean
In the early days of my debut as an idol, due to my pretty face, I had to play the role of a ‘bottom’ in the coupling fans had pushed. But because I resented such an image, I attempted to change it by growing out a beard, tanning, and even packing on muscles. As a result of my transformation, an irreversible loss of fandom began… Shocked by my appearance from cute to muscular, fans stopped their fanaticism one by one, and as if on queue, other members of our group, U-PITE, acted similarly foolish one after another as the group broke down. Five years later, I spend my days in regret having not accepted my role as a ‘bottom’ and wishing if I could go back to the past, I would be exactly what fans had wanted me to be. Then one day, as I had wished, I inexplicably returned to my early debut days… Now all I wished for was happiness! As such, I had vowed to become the ‘bottom’ of U-PITE in earnest and walk only on the path of success. However, a problem had arisen. The other members seemed to have fallen for my ‘bottom’ act.
