The Dead Girl Band
It's been three years since I last posted in the members' story section. I have not been idle in real life tho' I can tell you that.
In short: I've given up "God in his Mercy" for now. Yeah, it was a great idea but then real life came barging in that was the end.
However, as a lover of a good conspiracy, mystery and Korean Dramas, I have am cooking up something completely different.
THE DEAD GIRL BAND
Per legal purposes: this is fiction. This is only fiction. Any resemblance to real people or events is purely conwinky-dink and I shall deny to my dying day that it was anything to do with any recent events in the world of Kpop.
This is only a story.
South Korea, Oct. 2020
It has been ten years since the tragic accident that claimed the lives of two members of the Korea Pop group, "Quintet". Per their agreement with the management company, the three surviving members are together once again for the annual memorial concert where they honor the departed.
The resident "bad girl" of the group, Suni, despises these enforced reunions of what people refer to as "The Dead Girl Band". She generally tunes out for the duration. But this time, someone catches her eye; a woman in the crowd who resembles one of her deceased band mates.
The woman is older, a little heavier and is obviously mentally challenged but the resemblance is remarkable. A brief encounter with the woman shocks Suni into questioning everything she's ever known or has been told about the accident.
Who really died that night and why? Suni will have to battle heaven and earth and even herself to find out what really happened to "The Dead Girl Band".
The overture follows in the next post. I'll add to it as malfunctioning computer permits.
"Why not stay awake now? Who wants to sleep now with so much happening, so much to see? Life used to be dull you see...and you don't have to sleep alone, you don't even have to sleep at all; and so, all you have to do is show the stick to the dog now and then and say, 'Thank God for nothing.'"
