As soon as Su-Gyeom arrived at the interview venue, he fixed his makeup. Su-Gyeom, who fixed his makeup while dozing off, was handed the clothes that his stylist Song Ha brought.

“Our fairy is so pretty today.”

“Hahaha, I’m embarrassed, so stop it.”

“Why are you embarrassed to hear that you’re a fairy even though you’re a real fairy?”

“Oh, I’m not a fairy.”

“Aha. You don’t want to be caught being a fairy, do you?”

Su-Gyeom shook his head at Song-Ha’s attitude of interpreting his words as she liked. The conversation just didn’t work.

He was very grateful that Song-Ha thought he was beautiful, but it was embarrassing to hear her calling him fairy every time.

While Su-Gyeom is feeling ashamed, Yoo-Chan’s makeup is finished. Looking at his face, his red lips were just moist with a colorless lip balm.

“Yoo-Chan’s lips are moist today.”


“It’s very nice to see. It looks great.”

Su-Gyeom smiled and patted Yoo-chan on the back. Then Yoo-Chan’s eyes widened and blushed as if he was flustered.

“You must be embarrassed.”

“What’s wrong?”

“Why, it’s because you’re cute.”

Su-Gyeom answered Yoo-Chan’s question with a cool smile. He kept smiling while going to change his clothes.

Before long, all the members finished preparing for the interview. Each member was sitting in the five chairs placed side by side and staring blankly at the camera. Reporter Cho Myoung-Ho, who was in charge of the interview, entered. Currently, he is working as a reporter. Still, since he was originally a singer and was such a talented entertainer in the entertainment industry, U-PITE jumped up to greet him as soon as he appeared.

“I’ve never seen you before. Uh, you guys are U-PITE? Yes, well, I look forward to your kind cooperation.”

He seemed to glance sideways at U-PITE, greeted them briefly, and then turned away. He was crude and had a good personality, but in reality, he was rumored to be strict and picky in the industry.

Non-celebrities would be surprised to know, but such cases were expected. There were a lot of people who were 180 degrees different from the actual image shown on the broadcast.

Su-Gyeom, who knows this well, was not angry at his attitude. He just wanted the interview to be over soon.

However, Su-Gyeom’s wish did not come true. Cho Myoung-Ho, who went to get his makeup done, did not come out for an hour, and U-PITE had to wait.

Su-Gyeom couldn’t even sit comfortably because he had finished styling my clothes, hair, and makeup perfectly. This was because it was difficult if the costume was wrinkled or the makeup was smudged.

Although the weather was still cold outside, the lighting was so hot. Because of the heat, Su-Gyeom felt like his makeup would melt away at any moment. Su-Gyeom barely caught his head and waited anxiously for Cho Myoung-Ho to come out.

Finally, after 30 more minutes, Cho Myoung-Ho appeared slowly.

“Sorry, I’m a little late, right?”

Cho Myoung-Ho said, looking at the camera. With nearly 30 years of broadcasting experience, no one could blame him for his brazen remarks.

“Then shall we get started now?”

Dozens of cameras captured their subjects on the screen as soon as they heard Cho Myoung-Ho. “Hello, I’m reporter Cho Myoung-Ho. Today, we’ll meet the hottest idol.”

At Cho Myoung-Ho’s words, U-PITE jumped out of their seat and handed over the greeting according to Tae-Won’s lead.

“What’s this planet?”

“Hello, we are U-PITE!”

After bowing 90 degrees, U-PITE sat back in place. Then Cho Myoung-Ho smiled happily and gave his prepared speech.

“You’re very polite, as expected, U-PITE. It’s good to see.”

Cho Myoung-Ho, who officially praised U-PITE, has a benevolent face. With no time to get used to the indifferent look he showed earlier, U-PITE was busy being aware of each camera.

“Since you guys are the hot idol these days. The new song “Wish Petal” came out, so we can’t miss it without listening. Can I ask you to sing a line?”

“Of course.”

Tae-Won immediately answered Cho Myoung-Ho’s question. He signaled with his hand, and according to his hand, U-PITE sang the second verse-chorus they had prepared. Lee-Gyeom and Su-Gyeom sand while the other members harmonize.

“It’s really nice. The lyrics are so pretty.”

“Thank you.”

“I want to be a wish petal. I think it’s a very pretty lyric.”

“Yes, of course!”

As soon as his question was over, the members smiled brightly and nodded. It was a natural move because it was ahead of the camera.

“Now, the first question! Oh, my gosh, the first question is a little strong. I don’t know if you’ll be okay. Please tell us who you are most awkward and close with.”

Cho Myoung-Ho said while exaggerating his acting. Then U-PITE also acted with a troubled look.

“We don’t have someone we are awkward with.”

“Yes, that’s right, we don’t have that.”

“Come on, don’t do that.”

“I’m telling you, there isn’t.”

Han-Sol responded to Tae-Won’s words. Even though Cho Myoung-Ho asked again, Han-Sol was only firm. For an instant, Cho Myoung-Ho’s expression froze. Su-Gyeom noticed and quickly intervened.

“It’s not that awkward….”

“Then? A little uncomfortable?”

“Ahaha, something like that.”

Cho Myoung-Ho looked at Su-Gyeom with greedy eyes as if he had found prey. Su-Gyeom bowed his head as if he were in trouble and twisted his body. Then, he looked at Lee-Gyeom with his eyes.

“Oh, Su-Gyeom, do you feel awkward about Lee-Gyeom the most?”

“Oh, no! It’s not awkward…….”


Cho Myoung-Ho’s eyes sparkled with anticipation, and Su-Gyeom looked at Lee-Gyeom. His face is expressionless, and he carefully opens his mouth.

“Oh, it’s nothing else.… I do a lot of performances with Lee-Gyeom. That’s how…….”

“What about the performance.”

“It bothered me for some reason….”

“Does it bother you? In what way?”

“No, it’s just something like that. The fans.., Anyway, that’s why I became more conscious…….” Su-Gyeom blushed embarrassedly and said. Then Cho Myoung-ho burst out laughing as if he was having fun.

“Oh, I know what it is. The fans are just putting you two together!”

“Oh, hahaha, that’s right, but you are still both guys.”

“Yes, I’m not saying I’m not okay either…….”

There was none. Even though he wondered what was wrong with him, Su-Gyeom was so busy concentrating on his acting that he couldn’t afford to care about Cho Myoung-Ho anymore.

“Hahaha, that’s possible. That’s possible. Next question! Who is the messiest? Shall we shout together at the count of three?”

“Oh, wait!”

Regardless of Su-Gyeom’s urgent words, Cho Myoung-Ho immediately started counting.

“One, two, three!”


“It’s Tae-Won!”



“I think it’s me.”

Tae-Won and Lee-Gyeom pointed to Han-Sol, and Han-Sol pointed to Tae-Won. Su-Gyeom and Yoo-Chan each pointed at themselves. Cho Myung-ho laughed exaggeratedly at the unexpected result.

“Su-Gyeom and Yoo-chan pointed at themselves, right?”

“Oh, even though I’m messy, Yoo-Chan is usually clean.”

“No, I’m the messiest one. Su-Gyeom is clean.”

“Oh, what are you two? It’s my first time seeing an idol arguing that they’re messy. Is this the love?! Then, the next question! Who do you think is the coolest, even when you’re in the same group? Shall we start with Su-Gyeom?”

The members’ eyes were on Su-Gyeom at once at the reporter’s question. Su-Gyeom swallowed his dry saliva and remembered the answer he had written earlier on his way to the interview place.

“I think… I think it’s Yoo Chan. Yoo-Chan was getting his makeup done today, but his lips…… Even I, a real man, wanted to steal it.”


Su-Gyeom, you make the Yoo-Chan shippers believe that there could be something huhuhuhu

A Failed Idol’s Rise to Bottom

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.
