Chapter 3 | The Producer who falls too easily
Today marks the day that Joohyun starts her impossible project. And that is, producing music on her own. Being a producer from a big company had her career immobile for years. She knows she can do much better than those producers who are men but in a patriarchal society, you can see that there isn’t a fair system. The company even asked her to switch careers stating that she’s too pretty to be a music producer. They offered her spots to debut as a k-pop idol despite her age.

Seulgi is still surprised. She didn’t have much social interactions every day unless it was Sooyoung taking her order at the café at night. And yet, Joohyun is here again peeking at her door for the second time. “Uhm, yeah.” She nods and then hurries to get her keys and wallet.
“You’re not going out like that are you?” Joohyun casually asks as she points out to the cute owner’s hair.
Seulgi mouths “oh”, and takes out the tie from her wrist. She makes her hair into a bun like a pro. And within thirty seconds, she’s g
