The next day, U-PITE’s show finished broadcasting. The music show ranking itself was not as high as the first week of the activity, but it was a pretty good response in its own way.

U-PITE finished filming and was about to move toward the following radio schedule.


Su-Gyeom looked back at someone’s greeting. The familiar face that he encountered in the hallway of the broadcasting station caused Su-Gyeom’s brow to crumple.

They are Black A. He didn’t want to know, about them but he is forced to as they are in the same industry. Additionally, there activities sometimes overlaps.

The difference is that U-PITE has only just begun its digital single album activities, but Black A is now the last part of its second mini-album. The activities of the second mini-album will end next week.

There was no reason to dislike Black A itself. However, the fact that Shin Myung-Hyun, who troubled Yoo-Chan in his previous life, belonged to the group was enough reason for Su-Gyeom to hate them.

Although he failed to control his expression, Su-Gyeom couldn’t openly express his dislike.
He drew up the corners of his mouth to smile.

“Hello, nice to meet you. I heard you made a comeback. Congratulations.”

One of the members of Black A smiles and says hello. However, Su-Gyeom felt uncomfortable seeing his a thick eyeliner.

Su-Gyeom nodded bitterly and instinctively dragged Yoo-Chan behind his back to hide him. Of course, Yoo-Chan was never hidden because he was much taller than Su-gyeom.

“Thank you.”

Other U-PITE members, except Su-Gyeom, bow their heads and say thank you. Su-gyeom reluctantly bowed his head slightly.

“We Debut at the same time so let’s get closer. Let’s eat together later.”

“Yes, we would like it.”

It may be just a greeting, but Tae-Won did not realize it was just Black A member’s empty words, so he responded politely. Even though he knew that he was also saying it as a greeting, Su-Gyeom had to suppress his frustrations.

“Then we have another schedule, so we’ll go first.”

Su-Gyeom quickly cut in and cut off the conversation because he didn’t want to make a real meal appointment.

Lee-Gyeom had been silent, narrowed his eyes to Su-Gyeom, but Su-Gyeom was not in the mood to care about his situation. He just wanted to take Yoo-Chan and leave Shin Myung-Hyun as soon as possible.

Fortunately, the members bowed down without complaining and prepared to leave.

It was then.

“We met at the end of the year last time, do you remember?”

Shin Myung-Hyun, who had been quiet, suddenly opened his mouth. At his voice, Su-Gyeom barely managed his distorted expression and looked at him.

Shin Myung-Hyun’s eyes were on Su-Gyeom and Yoo-Chan. The idea of leaving quickly grew stronger.

“Yes, I remember..”

“Oh, was that so? I don’t really remember. I’m sorry. I met so many people that day.”

Yoo-Chan opened his mouth first, but Su-Gyeom quickly intervened and intercepted Yoo-Chan’s words. Su-Gyeom seemed really sorry as he titled his head pretending to remember.

“Oh, that’s too bad. I thought you two were busy, so I wanted to talk more, but I couldn’t. Let’s really set a meal next time.”

“Haha, we’re very busy, and Black A is busy, too. I guess that’s why we keep missing each other. That’s too bad.”

At Shin Myung-Hyun’s suggestion, Su-Gyeom expressed a nuance of rejection by saying that he was busy. However, Shin Myung-Hyun did not give up.

“So we’ll have to set the time. Do you want to exchange contacts?”

Shin Myung-Hyun even took out his cell phone and pushed it. With the situation like this, there was no specific reason to refuse. In addition, it was impossible to be rude to Shin Myung-Hyun as well as the entire Black A member. Image was life for idols, especially for rookie groups.

Of course, Black A was not a senior group compared to U-PITE. But U-PITE’s company, DP Entertainment, is a new company.

Black A, on the other hand, was an agency with a lot of experience in the entertainment industry. Therefore, there must be many senior singers they are acquainted with.

If they were rude to Black A, U-PITe’s image itself might be tarnished.

Looking back, Yoo-Chan was taking out his cell phone. Surprised, Su-Gyeom quickly held out my cell phone to Shin Myung-Hyun.

“Me! Exchange with me!”


“Oh, keep in touch with me. I want to get your number. Ha ha, ha ha.”

Su-Gyeom wanted to prevent Yoo-Chan and Shin Myung-Hyun from contacting each other. Is he not already aware what that evil man did to innocent Yoo-Chan in his previous life?

“……I got it. Song Su-Gyeom is more active than I thought.”

“Me? Oh, I hear that a lot. Ha ha.”

Su-Gyeom wondered what this crazy guy was saying, but he laughed off as if nothing happened. Su-Gyeom struggled not to look displeased as he exchanged numbers with Shin Myung-hyun, .

“Yoo-Chan, you too…”

“Oh, he doesn’t have a cell phone because Yoo-Chan is the youngest.”


“He is a minor. It’s a company policy.”

Su-Gyeom answered pretending he just remembered. Well, if Shin Myung-Hyun tried to find out whether Yoo-Chan had a cell phone or not, he could, but it was important to avoid the present .

However, he did see other members expressing absurdity at Su-Gyeom’s words. But now, its more important to protect Yoo-Chan.

“You can contact me.”

“Good. Can I call you Su-Gyeom?”

“Oh, well… Yes, go ahead.”

The words “no” came up to his throat, but Su-Gyeom, who barely gave his consent with a smile, put his cell phone in his pocket and looked back at the U-fit members.

“Let’s hurry up and go. Min-Seung-Hyung told us to hurry up and come.””

“Uh, yes.”

“All right.”


“Let’s go.”

Fortunately, the members followed Su-Gyeom’s word. Su-Gyeom bowed to Black A with relief and walked along the long hallway.

“Hey, earlier….”

“Yes, why?”

After a long distance from Black A, Yoo-Chan carefully started. Su-Gyeom looked at Yoo-Chan as if nothing had happened, thinking that the time had come.

“Hyung Why did you do that? Why did you give your number?”

“Yes, why would you give him your number?”

Su-Gyeom thought for a moment and looked for something to answer back, but he couldn’t think of a very good answer. At times like this, being honest was the answer. Of course, there was no need to be 100% honest.

“I don’t want to give him your number.”

Su-Gyeom can’t exactly tell him why, but he wasn’t lying. Yoo-Chan’s eyes widened as if surprised by Su-Gyeom’s words. Lee-Gyeom wrinkled his brows unsatisfied at his answer.
“Why? Can’t I do that?”

Su-Gyeom raised his head slightly and opened his eyes coyly. Tae-Won and Hansol were silent at the brazen attitude of Su-Gyeom. Their impressions were stiff as if they were displeased.

“It’s not something you should worry about”.

“That’s right, why are you giving your number if they asked for Yoo-Chan?”

“Why did you want to give Yoo-Chan’s number.”

Despite Han-Sol and Tae-Won’s questions, Su-Gyeom raised his head. Of course, Su-Gyeom also knew that his behavior was strange when others saw it. However, even though it may seem strange to the members, they had to protect Yoo- Chan from Shin Myung-Hyun’s hands.

“So why do you hate it?”

Lee-Gyeom asked in a subdued voice. His eyes twitched with an unknown emotion. Honestly, Su-Gyeom is shameless.

“That’s because I like Chan.”

There was a moment of silence at Su-Gyeom’s words. The four pairs of eyes looked heavily at Su-Gyeom. Su-Gyeom continued, feeling that something was wrong with their eyes.

“Yoo-Chan is the precious youngest member of U-PITE.”

A Failed Idol’s Rise to Bottom

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.

    Awww of course, Sugyeom. Yoochan is our precious maknae. 😭

  2. Sadie Woods says:

    Poor Yoo-Chan. Flirted with so shamelessly but without even the tiniest bit of romantic meaning behind it! It’s enough to make everyone jealous of course, but that family type of emotion to lovers emotion is a hell of a barrier to cross.

    Thanks for your hard work translating!
