---September 2010; Secret Garden filming---
Some annoying girl was showing all her teeth in big smile and waving her hand at Jong Suk. He scratched back of his head, wondering if he knew the girl.
“Oppa, isn’t it exciting? We’re filming together today!” The girl was blathering.
Was she an extra? Or maybe psycho fan…?
“It’s shame we don’t actually share any scene together…” She kept on talking, making Jong Suk even more confused.
“Gaeun, director is looking for you..” Ji Won, dressed exactly the same as the girl, came.
“Yes, eonni! Oppa,watch me now.” The girl winked at him and left him totally confused.
“Noona, who she is?” Jong Suk asked his cast-mate.
“Just an extra. But since my stunt man twist an ankle yesterday, she’s replacing her today.”
The both exchange doubtful looks: none of them believed that Gaeun can seriously work as a stunt man.
All Gaeun had to do was jumping from one (fake) building to another, and not killing herself while doing it.
She took a running leap, jumped over gap between buildings, and for one tiny second looked down. At Jong Suk. His smile made her lose concentration.
The first thing she saw after waking up was face of her uncle. Angry face, to be exact.
She looked around, and just like she thought, she was in hospital.
When her uncle noticed that she was awake, he didn’t call nurse nor comfortingly patted her on her shoulder. He grabbed her ear and lifted her to sitting position.
“Ouch!” She protested.
“Gaeun.” He sight. “Promise me, it’s last time I’m visiting you in hospital.” He said emotionless; he had many opportunities to yell at her when she was in hospital with broken leg or arm.
“Sahm-chon, I promise!” She said cheerfully.
All her uncle did in respond was rolling his eyes; he knew it definitely wasn’t the last time.
She got up from bed and checked her limbs; nothing was broken so she happy as always walked into bathroom.
Her uncle, used to hospital visits, sat comfortably on her bed and started solving a crossword.
“What you were doing on set of ‘Secret Garden’?”
“Acting.” She answered through bathroom’s closed door.
“Being a stunt man.”
“I’m waiting for honest response.”
“Meeting my future husband! Jong Suk oppa is so cute I could eat him up! I finally met him today, and you won’t believe me, uncle, I even stole his shirt from changing room! Shirt with his scent…!”
When Gaeun was talking in the bathroom, unaware of the presence of guest in her hospital room, all her uncle did was hardly preventing himself from laughing.
“She’s not really sane.” He quietly said t the gust, taking flowers from his hands. “ Being hit in head to many times.”
The guest – Jong Suk – nodded.
“Is there any chance for her..?”
Uncle shook his head, pretending to be in deep sorrow. “Incurable case. I’ll keep her away from you-“ he raised his voice “- Mr. Lee Jong Suk”.
The both heard loud bang in the bathroom; the sound of Gaeun falling down.
“I should go now..”
When Gaeun stormed out of bathroom, the actor already had left the room.
“Flowers from oppa??” Gaeun took the bouquet. “Did he hear…?”
“He thinks I’m a psycho-fan?”
Gaeun theatrically sat on the floor. “My life just ended.” She sobbed.
“You’ll find yourself new ‘idol-hubby’ soon.” Uncle sighed.
On their way back home, uncle asked out of curiousity.
“Gaeun-ah, why do you always sneak on those drama sets?”
“Isn’t it obvious?”
“You want to be an actress?”
“I want to have kissing scenes with the hottest actors!”
Uncle rolled his eyes.
“I want to be an actress.” She said with bitter smile. “But no one wants to cast me! When I’m an extra or a stuntman at least I can be on set!”
“Please, stop trying that, you only harm yourself. There must be different way to become an actress.”
“Yes, there is – becoming an idol first. A member of girl group. “ She said sarcastically.
“Great idea. It’s definitely less dangerous than jumping over gaps between buildings.”
Gaeun entered her room in trainee’s dorm; she was expecting her new roommate, Dasom to be asleep. The two of them started sharing a room when Bora had moved out to Eternal’s dorm.
“Um, what are you doing?”
Dasom, good hardworking and shy girl, was looking scary with hairbrush in one hand and candle with other, sitting in front of steaming pot.
“Are you..hexing someone?”
“I would prefer calling it ‘bringing justice.’” Dasom put the hair from the brush into the pot. “Bora doesn’t deserve a place in Eternal. Gaeun, bring me that bottle.”
Gaeun did as her roommate asked, and sat next to her; she wasn’t holing any grudge against Bora but she was excited about casting some spells –for fun, of course – so she willingly helped Dasom.
When the girls finished, nothing happened.
Nothing happened the next day, when Bora was practicing her lines as main vocalist of Eternal, and nothing happened when she was participating in photoshot for the band’s concept photos.
It happened when she was about to record a song. She lost her voice.
'Happy virus' Gaeun is probably going to be my main character for upcoming RP;
or maybe arrogant Bora, or 'good' Dasom?
Still can't decide:P
Maybe completely new characters^^
