Su-Gyeom, who came down to the underground parking lot, moved toward District E. He wonders what kind of car Seo-Wook took today. He has a lot of cars so it was hard to know what he usually uses.


Looking back at the familiar voice, Seo-Wook was smiling leisurely with the window down.

The car he used today was a white car with a shield-shaped logo. He doesn’t know much about cars. He doesn’t even have a license

Su-Gyeom looked at his car with envious eyes and climbed up carefully when the car door opened. He thought that he would have no space to sit inside because of the style of the car, but once inside he was feeling comfortable.

Su-Gyeom’s expression, who was thinking about when he could buy such a car, was blurred for a moment.

“What’s wrong? What’s wrong?”

“Huh? It’s nothing.”

“But what’s wrong with you?”

“I was wondering when I could buy a car like this.”

“Do you want a car?”

“That’s not it……. There’s no place to ride it. But it’s cool.”

“Should I buy one for you?”

“Even if you say that as a joke, I become really excited. Don’t say that.”

Su-Gyeom was surprised and swept his chest. He knows it’s a joke, but Seo-Wook was one of the people who can tell proper jokes.

“It’s not a joke.”

“Then please buy me a red one. I’ll ask the members what color they want to buy.”

“Yes, I understand.”

He doesn’t know what he knew, but Seo-Wook nodded lightly. Then, soon after seeing he pressed Su-Gyeom’s hair, he burst into laughter.

“Did you sleep well?”

He was embarrassed because he answered the phone while sleeping.

“What do you want to eat?”

“Well… I’ll think deeply about it.”

“Yes, take it easy.”

At Seo-Wook’s words, Su-Gyeom nodded lightly. He was always relaxed, Su-Gyeom couldn’t imagine Seo-Wook being pressed for time or in a hurry. Su-Gyeom slowly pondered what to eat in his spare time.

“Shall we eat meat? No, no, I ate meat not too long ago……. But meat is always delicious, right?”

Seo-Wook laughed silently when asked by Su-Gyeom. Su-Gyeom thought it was consent and chattered the words that came to mind.

“But I ate katsudon during the day, so I want to eat something else…. Ugh. ”

It wasn’t a lie when he said he would think deeply, Su-Gyeom was really in deep agony.

He wanted to eat this and that. Although Seo-Wook often buys meals, it was not possible to eat the meals he buys every day. Therefore, it was bound to be more worrisome.

Despite Su-Gyeom’s prolonged worries, Seo-Wook did not rush him at all. Rather, he was looking at Su-Gyeom, who was lost in thought, with a happy face.

“Should I eat meat, sashimi, or……. Uh, um…….”

“Do you want to eat both?”

“Yes, that’s why I’m worried.”

“Then can I help you?”

Seo-Wook asked him in a friendly voice when the two candidates were selected. Su-Gyeom nodded with his round eyes.

“Let’s go eat Korean food. Meat comes out and sashimi comes out.”

“That’s good!”

At Seo-Wook’s words, Su-Gyeom looked bright as if he had found the answer. He only chose one meal menu, but it was a very important issue for Su-Gyeom, so he was greatly pleased.

Finally, the two-man car skidded smoothly through the underground parking lot.


“Thank you for the food!”

Looking at the neatly packed food, Su-Gyeom shouted in happiness. In addition to the meat and sashimi that Seo-Wook said, various side dishes were prepared.

Su-Gyeom’s eyes sparkled as he saw the food set on a large table, It was hard to believe it was a two-person meal. Seo-Wook looked at Su-Gyeom with a pleased expression.

“Hurry up and eat.”

“Thank you.”

Starting with a fresh salad and plain porridge, Su-Gyeom started eating in earnest. He felt excited and he couldn’t hide it, his hands touch his favorite japchae.

“Oh, it’s so delicious.”

“If it’s delicious. Why are you crying?”

“Because it’s so delicious.”

“Su-Gyeom is like a kitten.”


‘Why are you talking about cats all of a sudden?’ Su-Gyeom tilted his head.

Of course, fans did compare animals against Su-Gyeom. But that was only the fans.

Su-Gyeom blinked in surprise because he didn’t expect to hear Seo-Wook say he looked like a kitten.

“Baby cats do that. I heard that they cry when they eat something too delicious.”

“Oh, really?”

“Yes, really.”

“Wow, so cute.”

In response to Seo-Wook’s answer, Su-Gyeom grabbed his heart thinking about the kitten who was crying after eating a delicious snack.

“I know.”

Seo-Wook responded while looking at Su-Gyeom. He must have said that the kitten was cute, but maybe because his eyes were facing Su-Gyeom, Su-Gyeom felt as if he was saying he was cute.

Su-Gyeom, who was embarrassed, used his chopsticks even more enthusiastically. Su-Gyeom, who picked up the long golden fried food with his chopsticks, took a big bite.

“…oh, oh…….”

Su-Gyeom felt the taste of the contents hidden in the fried breading, and the chewing speed gradually slowed down.

It was fried red ginseng.

Bitter food was poison for Su-Gyeom, so he tried to swallow the red ginseng he had chewed with water.


Seo-Wook smiled coolly when he saw that. Regardless of that, Su-Gyeom hurriedly picked up another side dish to get rid of the bitterness left in his mouth. Seo-Wook laughed and pushed other side dishes in front of Su-Gyeom.

“Ah, I’m alive.”

Su-Gyeom, who erased the bitter taste after a long time, breathed a sigh of relief. Seo-Wook smiled slowly at Su-Gyeom and opened his mouth.

“Su-Gyeom, did you get caught in a scandal?”


Surprised Su-Gyeom raised his voice. What kind of scary news is this? He tried to take out his cell phone to check the article in a hurry, but Seo-Wook continued.

“It was crazy that you were on a date”

“What? Oh, oh, oh……. That scared me. I was shocked. Scandal, what!”

“Why, do you feel guilty?”

“No! No way! I was even more surprised when you said that!”

Su-Gyeom answered back at Seo-Wook’s words.

He was so surprised that his head went blank for a moment. It was terrible to imagine to think of a scandal at this important time when he was busy succeeding as an idol.

He doesn’t even want to meet anyone, let alone think about dating. What kind of scandal is that? U-PITE is now making their name known, and if there was a scandal now, it would have been like throwing ash on the cooked rice, no, poo. Su-Gyeom shuddered because he felt like he was being stabbed just by the thought of a scandal.

“You mean the date with Lee-Gyeom, right?”

“……Yes, that’s right. The two of you went on a date. I guess it was a real date since you said it was a date”

“Hey, we’re official. We are the Gyeom-Gyeom couple!

Su-Gyeom, who put a mouthful of tender meat in his mouth, trembled with happiness. Seo-Wook gave Su-Gyeom a strange look.

“Were you two that close outside the camera?”

“Oh, it’s not like that, but it happened today. I met Lee-Gyeom, so we had lunch and spent time together. Oh, Lee-Gyeom also picked out a doll through a claw machine. He’s really bad at the claw machine.”

Su-Gyeom giggled as he recalled Lee-Gyeom, who had repeatedly failed to pick a doll.

Seo-Wook only stared at Su-Gyeom with a smiley face. He was still smiling, but it was a very different smile from his usual smile. However, Su-Gyeom, who had no sense at all, could not have noticed this.

“I thought I cover my face well, but I didn’t know the fans would recognize me. But it feels good when they recognize us. We must be pretty successful now!”

“……I know. I’m glad you feel good.”

Su-Gyeom, who did not notice Seo-Wook’s expression hardening little by little, continued with excitement.

“When I looked at the fans’ reactions, they all liked it. You said it’s officials so sometimes I should take Lee-Gyeom and go out on a date on purpose.”

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.
