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.

Under the cool breeze of the April, we divided 4 YG members and 4 exchanged students into 2 groups and headed to the room-escape. We gathered around at the Hongdae station at 3p.m. and the whole program took about 3 hours. After we met, we briefly had a self-introductory time and headed to the room-escape feeling nervous because the room was notorious for their scary themes.
As the success-rate for solving all the quizzes and getting out of the room was less than 10%, we all braced ourselves for what was coming and headed into the dark scary room in one row with our eyes closed. We solved about 70% of the puzzles in the room but as the time ran out, we couldn’t escape the room. One memorable moment was when a hand suddenly dropped from the ceiling, jump scaring all the people in the room.
After the room-escape program, we headed to the real-shot archery center. As the bows were bigger than we expected, it took a lot of strength to pull the bow. As most of us were first time doing the archery, it was hard to hit the target at first but we gradually became better and got good points. After we shot all 28 arrows, we felt our arms shaking from holding and pulling the bow with great effort. Overall, it was really fun and we all had an unique experience that we won’t forget.
