Fangirl is celebrating the Seollal with her family. However her uncle, Nagil, turns the celebration into a disaster. He holds a grudge against Granma and Granpa, and he comes to seize their family heirloom, an antique armor. The uncle even got some of the siblings into his side and started a fight in the middle of the celebration dinner.
There are two modes available: Regular and Grand. Grand yields higher rewards, it can be played by paying 1 ticket. The ticket can be obtained from the Marathon or bought from the shop for gems. Regular yields lower rewards, it can be played by paying coins (the price depends on the player's progress in the story).
There can be up to 8 rounds, and in each round the player faces the family relatives wielding various weapons. The player has to survive all 8 rounds in order to score a win and get the full reward; failing at any round is considered a loss. Some rounds come with a reward and when the player fails to survive a round, the rewards from the previous rounds passed are given. Every round must be played in succession to its previous.
The difficulty in this fight is affected only by the player's equipment rarity, with higher rarity resulting in lower difficulty. Each round is timed 60 seconds, and the player must defeat these ill-mannered relatives before the timer ends, otherwise they will lose.

- Korean New Year (설날 - Seollal) is the first day of the Korean calendar. It is one of the most important traditional Korean holidays. The celebration usually lasts three days: the day before Korean New Year, Korean New Year itself, and the day after Korean New Year. During this time, many Koreans visit family, perform ancestral rites, wear hanbok (한복), eat traditional food, and play folk games. Additionally, children often receive money from their elders after performing a formal bow.
- The dishes served to the players are based on the recipes found in the Seollal celebration.
- Japchae (잡채 - stir fried noodle) is a sweet and savory dish of stir-fried glass noodles and vegetables that is popular in Korean cuisine. It is typically prepared with dangmyeon (당면), a type of cellophane noodles made from sweet potato starch; the noodles are topped with assorted vegetables, meat, and mushrooms, and seasoned with soy sauce and sesame oil.
- Sujeonggwa (수정과 - ginger cinnamon punch) is a Korean traditional cinnamon punch. Dark reddish brown in color, it is made from gotgam (dried persimmon) and ginger, and is often garnished with pine nuts. It is served cold and commonly as a dessert, due to its sweet taste.
