Ji-Woon Hak ‘Trickster’ – Lore

Ji-Woon was quite a talented singer, and the game’s lore explains how he became one of the killers. He was recruited by Yun-Jin Lee, a producer with Mightee One Entertainment, and who is also the new survivor in the game. After he joined the boy band NO SPIN, he started to adore fame and popularity. However, as his fame faded over time, he started being envious of his bandmates because they took his share of fame. One day, a fire broke out in the studio and he left his bandmates to die. This marked the onset of his killer instincts. He “harbored a newfound addiction in controlling the lives—and deaths—of others.”

Ji-Woon became a murderer after that, and that had some serious repercussions. His music started faltering, and the studio restricted his creative control. He took revenge on the executive members of the studio by inviting them to a private show and incapacitating them using Nitrous oxide. After that, each of the members was tortured and executed live on-stage.  Yun-Jin’s execution was delayed and she was the sole audience member. When Ji-Woon went to strike her after executing the others, the Fog came in and took both of them to Entity’s Realm.
