On 21st November, 4 YG members and 3 exchange students had gathered up at the front gate of Yonsei at 12:00 p.m. We introduced ourselves and headed directly for lunch by taking a bus to a restaurant, specializing in “kalguksu” noodles and jeon (pancake).

On November 25, 2021, four YG members and two exchange students went to the “Breakout” escape room arcade, a global franchise with 12 branches across various countries. Since the arcade had an English video about the game rule, strategy, characters, etc., exchange students could understand the game without great difficulty. The group was separated into two to play the game. Each group chose “Chamber of Hocus” and “ Dreadnought” among various themes.
In the “Chamber of Hocus,” players assume the role of detective and search for Mr. Hocus, a notorious magician who commits crimes for fun. In the mysterious and creepy chamber of Mr. Hocus, we followed the trail of a terrifying magician using various hints left by his victims.
The hypothetical situation of “Dreadnought” is set in the distant dystopian future. After the catastrophic ice age, only a fraction of the human population survived in a giant arc named Dreadnought. Players take the roles of the experimental subject who are transported to the outside land to find out whether the environment is habitable.
Overall, rooms were difficult to escape, with a 55% and 35% success rate. However, we managed to escape the room thanks to the wit, calmness, and logical thinking of each member.

For dinner, we ate Korean pancakes in the “향꽃” restaurant. We had a pleasant time eating and talking about various topics.
