Welcome to SMTown
I did not say a word. Who is this old man?
"Ah, you must be very shocked to meet me in person. I AM the Lee Soo Man." He told me while waving.
Hold on. Who is he? I don't know him. Oh no, pedophile?Noooo...
"Sorry, ahjjusshi, I don't know you. I've never seen you before nor have I heard of your name. Sorry again" I replied.
"Eh? Mwo?" He asked, dumbfounded. Did I insult him? oh no.
He suddenly laughed.
" Ah! Kwenchana! I am the owner of that black truck a while ago. Judging from the fact that you don't know me nor my new boys, I shall assume that you're not interested in K-pop. Am I right?" Mr. Soo Man said.
"The reason I don't know K-pop is because.... because I've been homeless." I answered.
Mr. Lee Soo Man became silent. He seems very wealthy.
"I personally welcome you to your new home: SM Town.... Tah-dah!" He said joyfully.
I gave him an awkward, "Ne?" face.
"I am the owner of one of the Big Three Entertainment companies in Korea, SM. I produced Baby VOX, DBSK, CSJH... H.O.T...." Mr. Lee Soo Man said.
Oh! I like H. O. T. ! OH WOW.
"But why is it my home? I mean, I do not understand, Mr. Lee Soo Man." I told him.
"I'm welcoming you to my company... I've decided to put you in SM Town's custody for the time being. You'll learn to be a singer, actor, and an idol!" He answered.
The idea seemed nice, but "Sorry, Mr. Lee Soo Man, I don't want to be a star or anything. I just want a home or famliy.. Something like that, then hopefully, I can study." I said.
Mr. Lee Soo Man gave me a huge smile. For some reason, he's got that fatherly attitude that I trust. Usually, I don't talk to strangers, but the man in front of me is very much like my father.
"Well, I don't mean to sound offensive, but I've bot a better idea for you. Come to our office, and you'll see your other family members."
Whew. I am glad that he said "our office" instead of "my office".
So I rode in the car. I forgot to mention my name, so he asked me. I soon fell asleep.
Thirty minutes after, Mr. Lee Soo Man was tapping my shoulder lightly. "Joo Young, we're here."
I quickly straightened up and marveled at the sight of a huge office.
"Your new home is here." Mr. Lee Soo Man told me. I grinned. "Kamsahamnida, Mr. Lee Soo Man."
I got a few cold stares by the people whom I passed by. Being the awkward me, I'd smile and bow to everyone.
"What is she? A saint? Why is she with Lee Soo Man? i've been a trainee for five years, and I can't even get to stand in the same room with mr CEO, but look ! Look at that fake!" I heard somebody say.
Fake? I have skin and flesh. I don't think I'm fake. I don't want to think of fake as someone who is not human. Definitely, I'm human! (Just kinda 4d sometimes) Kekeke.
"Don't mind them. Like what I've said, you're not here to become a trainee. You're here for a bigger purpose." Mr. Lee Soo Man.
"Arasso, Mr. Lee Soo Man."
"Where are we headed?" I asked politely.
"To your future: EXO."
