As such, we also mentioned the release fo the series first episode on October 11th and the time has come. You may watch the first episode below.
According to HYEPBEAST, the first episode tells the story of a young girl experiencing terrifying and reoccurring nightmares. The latter creates a strange behaviour in the girl which does not fare well with the classmates and leaves her friendless. The plots thicken as the main character acquires an invitation to a group called the Mightnight Society. The group gathers at night to tell each other horror stories by a campfire. At first, the girl is thrilled about the opportunity of making new friends, but things quickly take a dark turn when the fictional campfire tales become real.
