“Will he bark?”

No one answered Tae-Won’s question readily. He wanted the answer, but all he could do was be silent.Tae-won, who realized the meaning of silence, mumbled to himself bitterly.

“I see. I think he’s going to bark. “

“I wanted you to say no.””

The person they are talking about is Su-Gyeom.

He drank, excitedly and soon turned into this puppy like creature.

“Su-Gyeom, how many are these?”

“Two. No, no. Three. No, two. There are two because there are two.”

“He’s gone to hell.”

“Hey, are you feeling okay?”

“Oh? Yeah. Uh, no. An… It’s okay!”

“Oh, you’re saying it’s not okay.”

“ Do you want to go to the bathroom? ”

“No, I’m fine.”

“Yes, let’s say so.”

This time, Han-Sol checked Su-Gyeom’s condition.

It’s heartbreaking, but Su-Gyeom is drunk. Han-Sol wanted to deny it, but he was so drunk that he couldn’t even shield himself.

“Let’s get ready to go.”


“Let’s go, before he make another accident.”



At Tae-Won’s words, the other members, except Su-Gyeom, responded as if he had waited.

Su-Gyeom didn’t seem to understand why he had to go back, but he said, “Because… I’m so tired. I’m gonna go sleep.

“Why are you tired?”

“Yes, because of you. . …. . No, it’s just life.”

“Life is tiring?”

Su-Gyeom looked as if he was about to cry at Tae-won’s words. Tae-Won quickly regretted what he said without thinking for a moment. No matter how drunk Sugyeom was, he didn’t want to see him cry.

“No, I’m just saying. Life isn’t tiring at all.”

“I was tired…very, very tired.”

“…Did you?” Tae-won paused at Su-Gyeom ‘s voice, which became completely different from before. Tae-Won was not the only one who was shaken by Su-Gyeom ‘s words. The other members also looked at Su-gyeom with worried eyes.

“Yes, I was tired. It’s hard… sad.”

“What made you so tired and sad?”Tae-Won’s expression became very serious. Su-Gyeom’s eyes flushed at his question. As if he is about to shed tears.

“I regret it…”

“What made you regret it so much?’

“Because of my military disease”


“Why did I do that, Hyung? The director told me to stop, even Min-Seong-Hyung. Why did I insist?”

Tae-won tilted his head at Su-Gyeom’s words. I couldn’t understand what he is saying, so he looked at Lee-Gyeom and asked him with a wink.

However, Lee-Gyeom also shrugged his shoulders indicating that there was nothing that could be pointed out.T ae-won, who did not receive much response from Lee-Gyeom, also asked Han-Sol and Yoo-chan.

“What did they say?”

They wanted to say something, but all theu could say was they didn’t know what to say.

“I didn’t do it on purpose… No, on purpose? I didn’t do it by mistake. But I didn’t mean anything.I just, I just wanted to be manly… ”

It was a word that connected the sentence structure properly in its own way. It’s just that they still can’t understand what he is talking about.

“No, Hyung, I really just wanted to be a man… Pretty is good, but… I was like, Oh, oh, oh, oh? He’s got a lot of muscles. Big chest… Like you… I love your chest, you know?”

“No, I didn’t know…”

“Why don’t you know that? I’ve been staring at you so much! How can you not know? How can you not know!”

“Yes, I didn’t have a clue. I’m sorry.”

Tae-Won felt something strange while apologizing. It was because he wondered if it was an issue he should apologize for.

However, even if he approached the drunk person logically, he would only have a headache. In addition, Su-Gyeom seemed really sad and upset, so for now, it would be his fault.
“Anyway, you know… I wanted to be a man, that’s all. I didn’t know it would have such a big impact. It’s true, I didn’t know.”

“Oh, yeah. All right.”

“Tanning… you’re sexy, you’re tanned. If you’re sweating… Oh, how much? Your chest is big…”

“I don’t know what the two things have have to do with each other, but thank you for now.”

Su-Gyeom has been saying something, so he has to respond, but he still doesn’t understand anything about what he’s saying and he didn’t have a clue.

Tae-won responded roughly, but in his head, he was busy thinking about why Su-Gyeom was saying this.

“That’s why… mustache… You know, the beard… it’s… I just wanted to grow it out. I don’t have any hair, let alone a beard. But why don’t I have hair?”

“…where? Oh, no. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. Don’t say it. Please, please don’t say it. Don’t answer me”

” D*ck.”

Tae-Won closed his eyes tightly and opened them immediately in response. When he tried to close his eyes, it was because he imagined Su-Gyeom’s hairless place in his head.

당황한 태원은 황급히 손부채질로 붉어진 얼굴을 식히다가, 허공에서 다른 멤버들과 눈이 마주쳤다. 그들 역시 당황했는지 시 선이 제각기 이리저리 방황하고 있었다. “나도 수북하고 싶은데…” “입 닫자, 수겸아.” “응.”태원의 말에 착하게도 대답한 수겸은 어색해진 분위기도 모른 채 헤실헤실 해맑게도 웃었다.”아우우우욱, 속 쓰려. 으어어어, 어억.”눈을 뜬 수겸이 죽는 소리를 내며 천장을 맥없이 올려다보았다.숙취의 높에 빠진 수겸은 당장에라도 토악질을 할 것만 같아서 깊게 심호흡을 했다.어제의 기억이 송두리째 날아갔음은 물론이거니와 속이 울렁거려 죽을 판이었다. “멍멍아, 일어났어?” “멍멍…?”수겸은 태원의 부름에 잘못 들었나 싶어 되물었다. 그러자, 태원은 팔짱을 낀 채 고개를 주억거렸다. “우리 멍멍이 잘 짖네.” “나…? 나보고 한 말이야?”“여기 너와 나, 둘뿐인데 누가 더 있어?”

Embarrassed, Tae-won hurriedly cooled his red face with a hand fan, and made eye contact with other members. They were also flustered, and their eyes were wandering around.

“I also want to be full of…”

” Su-Gyeom close your mouth.”


Su-Gyeom, who kindly replied to Tae-Won’s words, smiled brightly without knowing the awkward atmosphere he caused.


“Oh, my head aches. Oh, oh, oh.”

Su-Gyeom, who opened his eyes, looked up at the ceiling. Su-Gyeom, who fell into the height of the hangover, took a deep breath because he seemed about to vomit right away.

Not only did yesterday’s memory fly away, but he was about to die of nausea.

“Did you wake up, puppy?”

“Bark?” Su-Gyeom asked again because he thought he heard Tae-Won’s call wrong. Then, Tae-won folded his arms and shook his head.

“My dog barks well.”

“‘Me…? Did you say that to me?”

“It’s just you and me here, but who else is there?”

“Why am I a puppy?”

“‘I don’t know why, but you are a puppy.”

“What are you talking about…” Su-Gyeom gave up thinking anymore when he answered the question and heard an answer that was no different from the repeat mark.

It was because his head was spinning because of a hangover, but he didn’t have the energy to weigh the unknown sound.

“Wake up. You need to get a hangover drink”

“I can’t get up.”

“I thought so, so I brought honey water.”

“Thank you… Thank you.Hyung is my lifesaver.”

“Stop talking and drink quickly.”

“Drink.” At Taewon’s order, Su-Gyeom quickly accepted his honey water.As he drinkthe yellow liquid, a sweet and cool taste spread through the mouth. The sweet stimulation of honey water seemed to lead to the disconnected neurons.

Su-Gyeom, who emptied a glass of honey water at once, raised his body much lighter than before.Of course, he still wanted to lie down the whole time, but he knew the truth that he had to move his body.

With Tae-Won’s help, Su-Gyeom headed to the kitchen with a slow step. At the table, there was a bowl of clear bean sprout soup, which is believed to have been boiled by Lee-Gyeom. “What about the other members?”

“Well, everyone’s gone somewhere. It’s my idea, but I think they left because it was uncomfortable to see you.”

Su-Gyeom, who was suspicious of the strangely empty accommodation, asked, but the answer added another question.

” Why would they feel uncomfortable looking at me?”

“I do to, that’s why.”

“Why? Did I throw up yesterday, too?”

”’No, but I’d rather you throw up.”

“Hyung, what’s up? What is it?”

“Don’t be curious. Actually, I’m a bit uncomfortable, too. I’ve led you to the bean sprout soup, so I’m going to disappear now.”

“Oh, Hyung! Tae-Won-Hyung!” Tae-won headed to the front door of the accommodation without any regret, leaving Su-Gyeom, who was really puzzled, wondering if their disappearance was a joke. ”


Instead of answering, only the sound of the front door closing rang out.

In an unexpected situation, Su-Gyeom froze blankly with only a spoon. “Lee-Gyeom! Han-Sol! Yoo-Chan!!”

Su-Gyeom shouted the names of the remaining three one after another just in case. However, the call was overshadowed by the silence.

“What, what, what is it?” Of course, it was a lonely question with no answer.

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.

    I’m still laughing at Tae-won scrambling, unsuccessfully, to walk back his question about where there was no hair. 🤣

    Thanks for your hard work translating!
