I liked this arc cos it was kinda exciting and Gong Rong (head of SR group and one of the masterminds behind the death-game-disguised-as-a-reality-TV-show) is very possibly gonna appear again. It was hinted by 2333 after his death that he might have joined the organisation as a staff... some role other than a tasker or a system. Besides, the author spent so much of this arc on Gong Rong and he had so much dialogue w MC, it's gonna be a pity if this character isn't used again. Spoiler: More info The host died on day 3 so she never found out about the people behind everything, though MC did. The masterminds were planning for there to only be 1 survivor, and they were considering it to be MC since she performed so well. Whoever survived would take the blame for the deaths of the other 19 participants. Even if they get the 10 million, they can only enjoy it in jail. After escaping the island, MC kidnapped Gong Rong (used him to threaten his sister) so that his sister would let her and the other female participant escape safely (they were in the middle of the sea, on the SR Group's boat and his sister brought a team carrying guns wanting to shoot her). After reaching mainland, she part ways with the female participant, giving her some money she withdrew from Gong Rong's card. She dragged Gong Rong around while avoiding the police 'cos she's now a kidnapper. After MC secured the host's mother (who was in GR's sister's hands) during the hostage exchange, GR's sister tried to kill GR (It wasn't really explained why but it may be because the sister didn't want anyone, not even her own bro, to threaten her position in SR Group since she took over when GR got kidnapped. So she decided to off him for good.) GR asks MC to save him, which she didn't want to, but eventually did anyway when he got shot. Though later MC tells him she saved him for money, which she needs to give host's mother the transplant. MC keeps him alive for the money and because he can die anywhere but not when he's still in her hands cos then she'll get the blame. MC, host's mum and GR stay in a hotel. GR 's sis releases news shortly that MC kidnapped and killed GR. Later, MC and GR finds out through the TV that GR's sis is in hospital. GR thought at first that she's trying to lure him out but when the news report that her kidneys are ruptured, he left MC on his own and returned to the SR Group in crossdress. Since he returned, the public knows he wasn't killed so the news about his kidnap and murder was questioned. For his sister's reputation(?), he confirms he was kidnapped but his kidnapper didn't contact his sister for some time so she thought he was dead. He didn't confirm it was MC who kidnapped him but didn't deny it either. After MC's incitement, along with the families of the other deceased participants, host's mum gets 20 million (MC allegedly 'died' in the game) which MC uses for her treatment. MC speculates that the whole game was a lesson Gong Rong wanted to give his sister. How to use money to achieve your goal. This amount of money is nothing to their SR Group but it can buy so many lives. Since MC's 'dead', she takes over the identity of the host's sister who died of cerebral palsy at the age of 1. The host's father, his new wife and kid visits them wanting at least half of the 20 million. MC calls the police who takes them away. Ironically, what MC told GR came true. "There will come a day, when you taste the flavour of being powerless." He could buy so many lives but not his sister's, who dies in hospital. His body couldn't withstand anymore and he, too, ends up in hospital soon after. Everyday, he films himself in hospital, in his male form, saying: "Someone, I want to see you" and puts the vids on the net. Because he's handsome, looks pitiful and his condition visibly worsens day by day, the vids went viral. "Someone, I'm about to die, aren't you coming to see me?" MC knows there's no good outcome if she visits him 'cos she'll get embroiled in the chaos of SR Group ensuing his death. He's the leader after all. That might precisely be his aim. So she never went, until GR's subordinate threatens MC with host's mum and brings her to GR. GR says she's the most stone-hearted woman he knows. Normal women would've visited him after seeing his videos. He holds MC's hand and asks her to leave the world with him. MC speculates that he added her in the list of dead participants so even if she, who's 'dead' accompanies him to death, no one will pursue it. MC asks him why and he says it may be so that he won't be too lonely on the road of death. But he doesn't like her. She just reminds him of a pet he had, which died when he was 10. He says though he hasn't fallen in love with anyone yet, he knows love is wanting the other to live well but towards her all he wants is to pull her to die. (yep, I should give up all hopes of finding a ML.) Though he says he doesn't hate her either. Not sure if the aforementioned is really part of the reason or he was lying, because he adds that he suspects she caused his sis' death, which should be the main reason. A person, possibly the new heir of SR Group, enters the room and GR indirectly refers to MC as his wife to him, though this is probably another attempt at dragging MC into SR Group's mess. When the new guy leaves, MC destroys the camera in the room and snatches the guard's gun. GR holds MC's wrist tightly, saying she can't go, he won't let her go. She leaves anyway. His condition worsens and he dies some time later. MC rescues host's mum, who has a successful operation. They go abroad. Spoiler: Gong Rong "More beautiful than women". As the older one among he and his sister, he's the successor/leader of the Group. Since childhood, he knew he had an incurable disease and was going to die. To lessen the resistance his sister would face when she eventually takes over the Group, he's been crossdressing since young. With the precedent of him, a 'girl', heading the group, his sister would have an easier time later. I find him kinda frightening? He's smart, devious, unpredictable and tries to trick MC on several occasions. No idea what's going through his mind. He would've been a strong opponent if he weren't dying. Also a severe siscon, though not in a creepy way but in a deranged? way. He was proud that his sister tried to kill him, because that meant she grew up, can survive and guard SR Group better. Even his managing of SR Group previously was just making preps for his sister. It's like he lived his entire life for her. I don't even want to know how (if?) he's gonna retaliate if he meets MC again. He's not afraid of death because he knows he's gonna die anyway.
