UTES Interstitial: Su-jin

Years in the past... Su-jin Yi was best known for their art on the streets of Metropolis West. After dropping out from college, Su-jin's a little bit adrift. But their partner Mars has a proposition for them: meet Glasshouse's biggest gallery curator, get a show with him, and make it big. That is, if Su-jin can actually charm the guy. Featuring amateur figures, borrowing paints, and the favorite alcoholic beverage of the show's creator.

Trigger warnings: Alcohol mention/drinking. Some emotional manipulation of characters.
