Holy Idol - Chapter 17
The next morning. Reinhardt came out yawning and stopped in surprise.
KC was squatting on the sofa, blankly staring at his phone.
Seeing that his eyes sunken, it seemed like he hadn’t slept at all.
“KC? You okay?”
As he worriedly approached him, KC turned his eyes and looked at him.
He then asked, astonished.
“Are you okay?”
Rembrary blankly opened his eyes widely.
“Am I okay?”
“How can I be okay? How can I be okay?”
Why is he like this?
Rembrary was bewildered and took a step back.
He asked again, as if not understanding KC.
“Did you sleep?”
“What can I do, I can’t fall asleep.”
“Were you worried about the people’s reaction?”
KC grabbed his own hair and pulled it, then he threw his cell phone.
Of course, it was on the sofa, so the phone slipped back safely.
“It was my first solo performance. People will talk about it. I’m going crazy wondering who is talking about me. Don’t you think so? Am I weird? Am I the weird one?”
To be honest, he looked a little weird right now.
Rembrary smiled and said that it wasn’t something serious.
“Even if you worry about it, it’s not like it will make a difference.”
“That’s easy to say…”
KC sighed and picked up his phone.
Rembrary looked at KC looking down at the phone in the same posture as before, and awkwardly scratched his forehead.
As I thought, this kid is sensitive.
But it wasn’t just KC who had this reaction.
Jongwoo, who came to pick up the members in the morning, was also in a similar condition.
Furthermore, he was surprised when he saw Rembrary, and asked.
“You must’ve slept well. Were you able to sleep?”
While driving to the office, Jongwoo and KC held their phones and frowned.
‘I see, this place is a fierce world as well.’
That state continued all day.
Even when practicing group dance and vocal practice, Jongwoo, who would normally be angry or cheering, only looked at his phone.
Then he would sometimes tilt his head and write something down.
It wasn’t until it was time for them to return to the dorm when Jongwoo put down his phone, smiled and clenched his fist.
Did something happen?
Rembrary, who was going to the bathroom, stared at him, and Jongwoo quickly ran to Rembrary.
Then he showed him the cell phone he was looking at.
Lines of bright colors were drawn on the phone.
“What is this?”
“A graph supported by one of the top 3 music sites in Korea.”
“It’s a graph showing music sales and streaming for 24 hours, a week, and a month. Do you see this line here?”
“Is that KC’s name written on it?”
“Yep. This is the musical version of the song that KC sang in Sing Survival. You can see it going up, right?”
“Sure. It’s going up slowly.”
Rembrary turned his eyes to the direction Jongwoo was pointing and soon realized.
He had listened to Jungseo explain what a music digitally released was.
He also heard that it is good if a lot of people buy it and listen to it.
The fact that the graph is going up like this…
“It seems that KC did well in this round.”
As Rembrary said that with a smile, Jongwoo looked at him as if he’s acting strange.
“What is wrong with you?”
The reason why Jongwoo was looking at Rembrary was because Rembrary did not show any envy at the good performance of KC, who is a fellow member but also a rival.
Did he lose his greed along with his memories?
Even though Jongwoo was puzzled, he quickly flipped the phone screen to the side.
“It’s not just this. Can you see this?”
The next screen was the YouTube screen.
Rembrary noticed that on the screen was his performance.
In the still scene, Woo Yeonwoo’s face appeared, and the writing was plainly written underneath.
Sing Survival First Round – Woo Yeonwoo and the number of views below…
“That is quite high.”
Rembrary’s eyes opened widely.
At first glance, the numbers are quite large.
“It’s not just a high number. The response is also good.”
When Jong-woo swiped up the screen to show the comments, a lot of foreign languages that could not be recognized by Rembrary appeared.
There were also some Koreans here and there, and the contents were praising his skills. Although there were some cursing his personality back and forth.
When Rembrary looked at Jongwoo, Jongwooo quickly raised the screen up again and laughed as if he didn’t mean to show any of the cursing.
“KC received a good reaction in the digital sale. You have a lot of views on YouTube. I was worried that it might end with a flash, but it kept the pace up.”
“Is that so?”
“Is that so, that’s not enough. You have the highest among the 20, you punk!”
Jongwoo laughed with real joy and patted Rembrary on the back.
Then he did the same to KC who came out.
Unlike Rembrary, KC showed the reaction that Jongwoo was expecting and ran wild, the two of them liked and fussed around together for a while.
The other members also got up and started talking about the future.
After a while, everyone was in a bright mood.
“Today, I’ll let you eat three chicken breasts!”
Until Jongwoo said this as a reward.
After hours of complimenting each other.
It was time to clean up and go back.
Jongwoo, who had left to go to CEO Im, came back not long after, and called Rembrary to ask.
“Yeonwoo-ya, do you remember anything about your family?”
All the members who were squatting in front of the large mirror looked at Rembrary.
Rembrary shook his head.
“Really? Nothing at all?”
“Nothing at all. Why are you asking?”
Rembrary asked repeatedly, then he titled his head and said.
“Did you tell your parents that you had some problems with your memories the day after the checkup? That there’s nothing wrong with your body.”
“Ah, I don’t think so…”
Rembrary nodded as he recalled the picture that CEO Im had shown him.
“But, what about those people?”
“They’re living in America because of work…”
“As I was saying, your mother said that she would call you directly.”
Rem Brie learned to make and receive phone calls from him, so he answered confidently.
“Are you sure?”
Jongwoo frowned and asked.
“I just got her call, she said she called you a number of times for the past few days and said that you didn’t answer.”
“She said you ignored her messages.”
Seeing that Rembrary really didn’t know, Jongwoo raised his eyebrows and asked.
“Can I see your phone?”
Rembrary politely held out his phone.
Jongwoo picked up his phone and clicked here and there, and then
Made a sound.
“All reception is blocked. No wonder.”
“What is that?”
“A feature that allows you to ignore other people’s calls or texts.”
Rembrary frowned as he nodded his head.
It turns out that something was wrong.
Rembrary didn’t even know that such a feature existed.
He, of course, has never blocked Woo Yeonwoo’s parents.
But why is it that Woo Yeonwoo’s parents’ calls are blocked on his cell phone?
Jongwoo asked if he had the same thought.
“Did you fight with your parents?”
ㅁㅡㅁ Realizing that Rembrary has no memories, he titled his head and asked the members.
“Did Yeonwoo fight with his parents?”
All the members who were listening to the conversation shook their heads.
“I didn’t hear anything about it.”
“Isn’t hyung’s relationship with his parents good?”
“It’s the same as usual.”
“He only talks about his parents.”
Jongwoo tilted his head.
As far as he knew, Woo Yeonwoo had a good relationship with his family.
However, family history is a sensitive area, so he did not ask further questions.
Maybe he had a fight with his parents before he lost his memories, and did not say anything to the other members.
“Anyway, Yeonwoo-ya. your mother will arrive around Saturday evening. Meet your mom and eat something delicious, comfort her so she doesn’t worry, okay? Then come.”
Woo Yeonwoo’s real family is coming?
Rembrary answered slowly, feeling uneasy.
“… I understand.”
He didn’t take the body on purpose, but it was still someone else’s body.
Rembrary didn’t know what happened to the real Yeonwoo when he entered his body.
If there was an accident, he thinks it’s better if he entered a dead person’s body.
Before entering this body, he was sure that Woo Yeonwoo was looking in the mirror.
In the meantime, it was difficult to even guess what had happened to the real Woo Yeonwoo because he had entered his body.
He didn’t do it on purpose, but he was a little nervous because he felt like he had stolen someone else’s son’s body.
Carefully examining Rembrary’s expression, Jongwoo added.
“Just in case, wear a mask. Sunglasses too.”
“You said she was coming around evening. You want me to wear sunglasses?”
You can’t just avoid it just because it’s uncomfortable.
She’s probably coming because his kid did something wrong.
“By the way, is my mother the only one coming? How about my father?”
“CEO Im said, around the time you lost your memories, your father was hospitalized.
“I heard you couldn’t come right away because of that… Listen to the details directly. Sincethat was all you told us.”
KC slept soundly that night, but Rembrary couldn’t sleep well because he was thinking about ‘the real Woo Yeonwoo.’
He had previously focused on ‘Why did I become like this’ and didn’t think much about it.
Now he’s going crazy thinking about the real Woo Yeonwoo.
Rembrary was sent to this place right away when he tried to stop the Demon King that was summoned.
Then what about Woo Yeonwoo?
When I was sent to enter his body, was he also sent there in exchange?
Or did he die of a heart attack?
He couldn’t figure out the answer, so even though he thought about it, his head only became heavy.
Finally Friday morning.
This time, it was Rembrary who woke up with sunken eyes.
“Why are you like that?”
When Taein saw Rembrary, he laughed and made fun of him.
However, Rembrary’s divine power relieved the fatigue on his body while he washes his face and hair.
Taein’s eyes widened at the difference between entering and leaving the bathroom, but Rembrary changed his clothes half-heartedly.
Today was a music broadcast day and they had to stop by a salon, so he did not apply the sunscreen that he started using due to Jungseo’s pushing.
After stopping by the salon for hair and makeup, Rembrary went into the broadcasting station’s waiting room quite familiarly, and came down after finishing the stage.
He felt like the cheers were louder than usual, but he didn’t care much.
But when he got out of the back door to go back from the stage.
Rembrary realized that it wasn’t a mistake that the cheers were louder than usual.
A group of women stood at the back of the station holding signs with his name on them, and the number definitely increased from the first time he saw them.
‘Are they my new believers?!’
T/N: Lmao Rembrary HAHAHA
