I had a supporting role in a modern fantasy.
The loyal dog of a villain with an angel’s name, Cheon Sa-yeon, and an unfortunate supporting character who died on his behalf, Han Yi-gyeol.
In order to escape from Cheon Sa-yeon and survive, he must use the protagonist Ha Tae-heon.
But Ha Tae-heon, who he thought of as a lifeline, was infinitely indifferent to him. Rather, Cheon Sa-yeon showed interest.
But besides that, something strange happened.
The events that occurred in the original story had advanced, and the gate and monster levels had risen. Even the people were ‘different’ from the original.
The original version I was trying to use was wrong.

I thought it was unlikely, but you really…
“You already knew how to clear the dungeon. But is that all?”
Cheon Sa-yeon, who was walking to the basement entrance, looked back at me. He said with a soft smile, “You and I are the same, Han Yi-gyeol.”
“What do you mean?”
“It means that we’re both hiding our hidden cards from prying eyes.”
Hidden card. I tried not to react to that word, putting on a calm expression.
“Aren’t you being unfair? I told you one.”
“Strictly speaking, I discovered it; you didn’t tell me.”
How petty. Cheon Sa-yeon gave me an interested look and said, “But this isn’t bad. It seems like a lot of fun, doesn’t it? Predicting, discovering, and using each other’s hidden cards.”
“I’m not interested.”
In fact, I was interested, but I shook my head in denial, thinking that I wouldn’t be able to see a good one if I dared to play.
“That’s too bad. I wanted you to try.”
