Read my recap of hiphop webtoon Move The Crowd’s twenty-first chapter.
익명성 (3) (Anonymity (3))
The girl who approached Doosik offers to buy him food, an offer our main character cannot turn down. The girl says she once had something going on with Lee Youngsoo but is through with him now. She tells Doosik to buy drinks since she bought food so the two go for drinks and she asks Doosik lots of questions about why he came to Korea. Doosik replies enthusiastically and even invites her to his upcoming performance. As it gets late, the girls asks Doosik to walk her home and even invites him in but Doosik refuses. Just when he is about to leave, she holds him back and gives him her number (here we find out that her name is Choi Ji-eun), saying he should contact her and she’ll treat him to a meal again. However, Doosik says that he’s busy and might not have time.
A flashback follows during which it is revealed that Lee Youngsoo has actually given Ji-eun money to seduce Doosik, record all their conversations, and even take pictures …
- When Doosik talks about why he came to Korea, the speech bubbles read: “Ah~ When I was in the US blah blah,” “I caused trouble and blah blah,” “My mom blah blah,” “The usual stuff blah blah,” “Pitiful shit blah blah that’s why I came here.”
- In the flashback, Youngsoo says to Ji-eun: “Go and badmouth me or something, do whatever it takes to seduce him.” So Ji-eun tells Doosik that the reason she left Youngsoo is because “He has a small one,” something Doosik finds hilarious.
This chapter’s final image shows Youngsoo (visibly pissed off) listening to the recording’s part where Ji-eun says: “He has a small one.”
- Ji-eun uses “the usual” seduction techniques with Doosik: acting weak, making use of etiquette (“I bought food so you buy drinks!”), compliments (“You’re cool, young but commendable.”), pretending to be drunk (“So please take me home”), clinging onto him, inviting him in (“Do you want to eat ramyeon?”), sweet talk (aka aegyo: “I just want to be with you a bit longer ..”). Still, Doosik doesn’t seem very interested.
- Youngsoo promised Ji-eun 500,000 won every time she meets up with Doosik and 2 million if she manages to take him to her place (which probably implies sleeping with him).
