In the gloomy atmosphere, the U-PITE in the car remained silent and swallowed only dry saliva. A cold wind blew in and chilled the abandoned house without any signs of living things.
Today, on the day of the horror reality shoot, U-PITe was heading to a rare mountain outside the city center. As the filming takes place from midnight, it was late at night when they arrived at the filming site.
Although several production crew members huddled together to shoot, the scary atmosphere could not be erased.
Su-Gyeom swallowed his dry saliva, stuck close to the car door, and looked through the window at the production team’s movements. Two or more staff members were busy running around ahead of the shooting.
“Let’s get off.”
“Ugh, I hate it.”
At Tae-Won’s words, Su-Gyeom got off the van while complaining. Then, he smiles brightly as if he was not the one whining and greets brightly in a loud voice.
The production crew looked back at Su-Gyeom’s greeting. They waved loudly, bowed, and greeted each other aloud, saying, “Hello, Su-Gyeom!” Among them, the production team, who was busy earlier, especially smiled brightly with their lips wide open.
“Hello, how have you been?”
Producer Oh Je-Hyun greets them warmly. The U-PITE members, including Su-Gyeom, bowed down to greet.
“Yes, I’ve been well. What about you, PD?
“I’ve been well, too. I’m glad to see you again like this.”
In the middle of a short greeting, Su-Gyeom felt someone staring at him. When he turned his head, a beautiful pale-faced man stared at Su-Gyeom.
“He’s a Shaman. Because of what happened before, we invited him here.”
Je-Hyun peeked at the man and lowered his voice to whisper. Su-Gyeom was quite surprised that he even called a shaman, but considering that he almost fell off the cliff, calling a shaman doesn’t seem to be exaggerated.
While Su-Fyeom was talking to Je-Hyun, the man stared at Su-Gyeom without looking away. There was something uncomfortable about the gaze. It causes a shiver to run up his spine.
Su-Gyeom greets him brightly, pretending to know nothing.
Instead of answering, the man bowed his head quietly. At the same time, he was looking straight at Su-Gyeom. Su-Gyeom felt chilled, so he turned around and stood with his back to the man.
“This is not a haunted house, but an abandoned house. Do you know the difference between a haunted house and an abandoned house? The abandoned house is just an uninhabited house, and the haunted house is where bad things have happened.”
U-PITE nodded at Jae-Hyun’s explanation. It was fortunate that it wasn’t a place where something ominous happened. It felt a little comforting.
“The landlord lived in person until two years ago, and now he’s doing well in another house. However, since this house is so old and not managed, I thought it would be appropriate as a horror filming location.”
He continued his explanation calmly. The more he heard it, the more Su-Gyeom’s fear lessened.
On the surface, it looks like there are a lot of ghosts, but the fact that it is an ordinary building was a great comfort to Su-Gyeom.
“This time, I prepared everything as much as possible to avoid danger.”
Je-Hyun, talking confidently, pointed at the man with his chin tip. Of course, according to Je-Hyun’s explanation, it didn’t seem like there would be anything special spiritually, but they brought a shaman just to be safe. Su-Gyeom shook his head with a more relaxed expression.
“Prepare the microphone and get ready for the shoot.”
U-PITE answered individually and took off their thick coat. Immediately, the cold night air wrapped around the whole body. Even though Su-Gyeom’s fear had lessened, an unknown chill hit his entire body when he tried to take off his coat and film.
“Lee-Gyeom, I’ll be a little closer to you.”
Su-Gyeom held his arms together with Lee-Gyeom even before hearing his answer. The body temperature passed to him, and he felt better. He smiled broadly, thinking he could live now that the cold was gone.
“I’m not your stove.”
“You’re cold, too. This is good.”
“What do you mean good?”
Lee-Gyeom grumbled but didn’t pull his arms from Su-Gyeom. Thanks to this, Su-Gyeom leaned on his arm as much as he could and felt his body temperature.
“Well, here we go. Please get ready.”
The main writer’s words resonated loudly through the night air. After getting ready for the shoot, U-PITE looked at the camera with a big smile. Finally, the camera started shooting with a red light.
“What’s this planet?”
“Hello, we’re U-PITe!”
Starting with Tae-Won’s lead, the members continued to greet. Su-Gyeom glanced and checked the script on the monitor.
<Su-Gyeom: We’re in the mountains at night, where do you think we are?>
<Hansol: This is a famous abandoned house in Goyang City, and it is said that no one has lived here since two years ago.>
<Everyone: Scared reaction>
Su-Gyeom, who confirmed that he had to talk to Han-Sol, looked straight at him. Han-Sol, who felt the gaze, stretched the corners of his mouth brightly, looking at Su-Gyeom.
“We’re in the mountains late at night. Where do you think we are?”
Su-Gyeom asked while looking at Han-Sol. Han-Sol then naturally answered according to the lines on the cue sheet.
When it was his turn to take a frightening reaction according to his answer, Su-Gyeom happened to hit Lee-Gyeom’s arm with his fist.
“Oh, what do you mean an abandoned house? An abandoned house!”
Lee-Gyeom glanced at Su-Gyeom hitting his arm and burst into laughter. Either way, Su-Gyeom continued taping Lee-Gyeom’s arm with his small fist. He thought he would give him a few more hits, but soon he tried to grab his wrist. Then they naturally held hands.
Su-Gyeom looked at Lee-Gyeom with surprised eyes and soon realized that he wanted to do fan service, so he quickly put their fingers together.
Lee-Gyeom looked at Su-Gyeom with surprised eyes. Su-Gyeom smiled as if he knew nothing.
‘Yes, I did it again today!’
With satisfaction, the corners of Su-Gyeom’s mouth raised. Lee-Gyeom’s gaze was felt, but Su-Gyeom had no time to accept his response as he was looking for the next target.
Should he target Sol this time? Su-Gyeom wondered
“Today, we’re going to visit this abandoned house.”
“Ah! I don’t want to!”
Just in time, Yoo-Chan explained what U-PITE would do. Su-Gyeom shouted no and hugged Han-Sol. But it was not enough, so he buried his face in Han-Sol’s chest.
“I’m already scared of the abandoned house!”
Han-Sol seemed embarrassed by Su-Gyeom’s words and soon patted Su-Gyeom on the back. Su-Gyeom laughed secretly in his arms with satisfaction.
“Today, we will divide into two and three people, and you can take out the items hidden by the production team from the abandoned house and come out. Only those who find all the items first can eat late-night snacks.”
“Huh! What do you mean by late-night snack? I want to win! I’ll win, I’ll win!”
“The team still needs to be formed. Producer, how do we divide teams?”
At Su-Gyeom’s words, Lee-Gyeom clicked his tongue and asked Je-Hyun. However, even before Je-hyun opened his mouth, Tae-Won opened his mouth first.
“OB team, let’s do YB team.”
“The other way around!”
Han-Sol and Yoo-Chan immediately refused. As Tae-Won said, if they divided into OB team and YB team, then the OB team is Tae-Won, Su-Gyeom, and Lee-Gyeom were one team, and the YB team had two players, Han-Sol and Yoo-Chan.
Su-Gyeom thought they didn’t want to be a team with only two people, so he decided to help his younger brothers as Hyung.
“Okay, then I’ll go to the YB team.”
“How did that happen?”
“Producer, can I do that?”
When Tae-Won asked, Su-Gyeom sharply replied and asked Jae-Hyun for permission. No matter what Tae-Won says, shouldn’t the PD decide? Je-Hyun nodded and replied, ‘Do as you please.’
“Then, YB team, please enter first.”
Su-Gyeom took a deep breath. After relieving his thumping chest and sweeping down his chest, he put Han-Sol’s arm on his right arm and Yoo-Chan’s arm on his left arm.
