“Rice is amazing, I'll eat anything steaming hot
Ramen and oden with pancake, this and that
Carbohydrates, carbohydrates—wait, is it just me or this sounds so painfully familiar?” Seungwan mumbled as her eyes squinted in thinking trying to pinpoint where she had heard these exact words.

“Are you pranking us right now Seulgi-yah?” Joohyun held her temple after she read the music sheet on Seungwan’s hand.

Sooyoung was already laughing so hard at the side.

Seulgi scratched her head. “I told you I’m not good at writing! And I even warned you that I might just write something about food, but did you listen???” She scoffed after explaining her side with exaggerated hand gestures.

“Oh! This is your poem! But in full and song version!” Seungwan’s eyes were bulging out at the realization.

Sooyoung was wiping her eyes from laughing so hard. “At least she was able produce a song. We should be specific with the requirements of the deal next time.”

Seulgi laughed sheepishly, standing awkwardly in front of her three bandmates like she’s in front of panel judges.

Joohyun sighed, her hands caressing her forehead in disbelief.

“Hey, it’s not that bad. And it’s unique. And you know, I actually agree to this. Rice is a staple food!” Seungwan high-fived with Seulgi.

“I know right!” Seulgi exclaimed, happy that someone finally acknowledged her genius. Oh. She asked for a high-five from Sooyoung too, who the latter hesitantly answered because she remembered that Sooyoung was the first one to tell her that she was a genius.

Joohyun snatched the music sheet and re-read the full lyrics and the melody, trying to put the melody into action in her mind. She sighed, why does she feel like she’s still being teased by Seulgi’s song?

“Well? What do you think, Hyunnie, our dear leader??” Seulgi asked, beaming in expectation of her answer.

Joohyun sighed. “I feel like you’re making fun of me in this. Wait, are you???” She squinted her eyes in suspicion at Seulgi, referring to the mention of Daegu and some lyrics that spoke with her accent.

“What?! N-no—!” Seulgi snorting made it look like she was. She vehemently shook her head when Joohyun glared at her. “I’m not teasing. It’s just my way of expressing love!” Seulgi said as she side-hugged her Hyunnie. She saw how Sooyoung nodded proudly at her and realized what she had said. “F-for food! And for Daegu!” Seulgi huffed. “Who knows, this might be Daegu’s future national anthem!”

Joohyun finally sighed in defeat as she looked up at Seulgi. “I can’t believe our debut song is going to be about food.”

Seulgi smiled at her sheepishly and scratched her nape. She side glanced at Sooyoung a bit, the maknae’s knowing eyes have been on hers the whole while. “Well, at least we got to feature your hometown and your accent.” She felt Joohyun’s hard nudge on her rib which made her laugh in return.

“I knew this is just you teasing me big time.” Joohyun shook her head in disbelief, Seulgi just patted her head as she chuckled.

“Come on guys! I can’t wait to play this!” Seungwan exclaimed, sitting on the chair of her drum set.

The three of them followed suit on their own position: Seulgi in the middle with her guitar and on vocals, on her left is Sooyoung on her keyboard and Joohyun on her right, Seungwan at the back, slightly windowing between Joohyun and Seulgi.

And they played the song with ease and harmony, as if it wasn’t their first time playing it. The chemistry between the four of them is undeniable. Seungwan’s beat was perfect, Sooyoung’s melody with Seulgi’s guitar was in sync, Joohyun’s bass hum supported them nicely, Seulgi’s voice fitted perfectly on the hyper-activeness of the song, and it was more accented with the other three’s second voices.

There was a part in the song where

Chapter 41: STOPPP I CANNOT TAKE THIS. I'm so in love with the characters and their personalities! I know their based on the actual Red Velvet members but it still feels like a separate persona. I admire the group's dynamic and I love how we got a look into how they stayed together despite the separation. I can't believe I reached the end of this already. It feels like only yesterday I started reading this (I probably did but it still ended so fast). I honestly feel inspired to truly take on my dream of being a musician as I have started. Something about this story makes me want to be more adventurous and explore my life. I have a habit of growing attached to stories because of all the emotions they manage to make me feel. So I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being such an incredible writer and having a way with your words. Until next time! :)
Chapter 40: I JUST CRIED???? This is the one of the best stories I've ever read and the plot is so unique! I love how the songs fit the emotions of the characters and I can tell you spent a lot of time on this. I love every second I read this :,) Sad that it's ending, but I'll manage. Thank you for creating such a wonderful story. :)))
Chapter 5: LMAO The uptown funk reference in the authors note is so good
Chapter 41: when I realized it was the last chapter, my brain and heart were already preparing to write 2 or 3 full paragraphs of review. I mean, gosh, this is so well written! honestly, I've never read a long story with just my fluff playlist playing instead of a tearful mellow playlist. But hey, I still cry! Usually I cry when I read the sad parts and only sigh with relief when the main characters are finally happy. However, while reading this story, I found myself crying tears of joy. Friends into Lover is quite a cliche trope, but you write it sincerely. Nothing is forced so that all emotions can be conveyed properly.

I'm not too sorry to leave this story in the library for a long time. Because in the end, I'm reading this in the last week of vacation and next Monday I have to start my real life. I believe this story will give me positive energy to start a new semester. I remember well all the sweet things in this story. I even imagined a tv series with this simple plot and I think other people will like it too!

As I also said before, I'm always amazed by the way you gather Red Velvet members in one story. It's smooth and sweet. You are one of the Seulrene authors that I love the most!! this story deserves more attention! I also write even though I'm still an amateur, so I feel I appreciate your writing more than before I started writing. I'm also actually quite jealous of your head that can contain these brilliant story ideas and your hands that execute everything so well! okay, at this point I could probably make a book to express how much I love your writing!!! I fall in love! You are cool! please keep writing because your writing makes my day more colorful!
Chapter 37: Next stop! Wenjoy!
Chapter 29: Bunny sounds cute and rabbit sounds too serious lol
Chapter 23: Idk but I think it was something related to Yeri's big fat crush on seulgi
Chapter 20: I've always been in love with the way you put 5 girls together in the storyline. I still remember the ending of 'The Notebook', it was so sweet
Chapter 15: Fluffy time sound so goooddddd
