Prince’s Promise by: koiniji_00 – END

When Jiwon first met Kang Jiyong and Lee Seulgi together in their hotel room.

It was awkward for Jiwon to meet the Crown Prince and the Crown Princess together. He knows he has been treating Seulgi badly, even when Sunghoon told him who he is, there is still that lingering feeling in his childish mind that Seulgi might want to get in between the both of them again. To his surprise, Seulgi apologized about everything that ever happened.

“I’m sorry, I tried to stop your growing feelings towards each other. I knew it was futile but still I tried. I would also like to apologize for trying to tear you both apart. But fate interfered and made you realized how you both feel towards each other, so in the end, I helped you and Sunghoon. Because for once, I want Sunghoon to be happy. And for once, I would like to be able to help Sunghoon. Jiwon-ah, be strong. For many people, especially in our family, would not want both of you together. So be strong and trust Sunghoon. Trust each other. Do not worry, both me and Jiyong wants the best for Sunghoon.”

“Don’t worry. We trust each other and love each other. Thank you, Seulgi. I’m sorry too, I was being indifferent towards you.”

“It’s alright.”

“I would also like to add,” Jiyong uttered, “please stay away from my Uncle. And no matter what happens, stay with Sunghoon.”

“Jiyong ssi, why though? I mean I have met him already. That’s why Sunghoon is not here. He went to meet him, he says he needs to talk to him.” Both the crown prince and crown princess shared an alarmed look and it made Jiwon fear for Sunghoon’s safety. “Why, why? Is he going to beat Sunghoon? Oh my g—“

“No no no.” Kang Jiyong hastily replied. “Uncle would not do that. Not to Sunghoon anyway. I’m sure, he is just talking to Sunghoon.”

“Oh good.” Jiwon breathed, relieved. “Sunghoon said, he raised him up so he sees him as his second father. But he looks up to you the most, Jiyong-ssi.” Jiyong smiled at that.

 “I know. He kept on following me when we were little. But there are too many eyes in the palace. Eyes and rules suffocated him. I was not able to protect him.” He said with sad eyes as he stares at Jiwon. “So he ran away from home. And met you” he added with a smile which made Jiwon blush. “And he is happy now. I am going to do everything in my power to protect him, to protect the precious smile of my little brother.” He ended seriously, still looking at Jiwon. Jiwon felt the powerful words from the crown prince through his heart. And he doesn’t know why but it made him at ease. At ease that everything will be alright.

“And I will do anything in my power to protect the crown intended to the Crown Prince.” A voice added, the three occupants of the room turned around to see Sunghoon looking at Jiyong with determination. They did not notice Sunghoon going in. Sunghoon always has this talent, he moves like a cat, like he is trained to move like an assassin. Jiyong sadly looked at Sunghoon. My poor Sunghoon.

“He is strong.” A voice entered his train of thoughts. Jiwon glanced to his left to see Jiyong, sitting beside him. “Sunghoon has been taught together with me to be a crown prince. But he never liked the idea of having a title. He never liked the idea of getting the crown from me. He never liked it so he always get punished by my uncle.” Jiwon’s heart crushed at the crown prince’s words. “I know that he knows but he never showed that he is in pain when he is with me. I am thankful that he is being positive in life. I am thankful at the same time worried for him. But he always reassured me everything is fine. I am his hyung, so I should know more things than him. But no, he knows more. And he kept them all to himself. You know, sometimes I hate that part of him. That part of him is taking my innocent Sunghoonie away. There are times when I just want him to be happy. Just be himself.”

“Hyung.” Jiwon choked.

“He grew up as my uncle’s puppet but he never showed me how much it pained him, Jiwon-ah. What kind of a brother am I? I grew up only watching from the sidelines. I grew up wishing he would tell me things, to clarify things that I suspect. But he didn’t, Jiwon-ah. What kind of a brother am I?” Jiyong has now tears on his eyes.

“Sunghoon has been trained fully well by my uncle. Did you ever wonder why Sunghoon is so agile and so quick on his feet? Did you ever wonder why sometimes he has this kind of air around him, especially when he is angry?”

“Yes, there are times when Sunghoon is like that but I didn’t suspect anything. He is just gifted.”

“—But Sunghoon doesn’t like the idea of hurting others. My Sunghoon, my little Sunghoon.” Jiyong continued, as if Jiwon didn’t cut him.

“…hyung, he is mine.”

“Well, he is yours now. I know that. And to make things clear to you, he was trained to kill me, by my uncle.” A gasp from Jiwon was all he heard so he continued “but Sunghoon loves his hyung so much that he disobeyed and ran away from home. Since then he hated uncle more than he hated the crown itself. Sunghoon didn’t know that I know. Ever since my grandma was assassinated, we have suspected the one killing our family one by one is near us. Before you say anything, we didn’t tell the media that they were assassination masked in an accident, instead we just told them it was all an accident.”

“When both of you came here three months ago, Sunghoon told me everything just to keep the one he loves the most safe and sound. You almost had an accident once. You might not know it but it was all planned. The reason why you are here is not because of vacation. It is because he chose you. And because he chose you, he wanted to end everything, his connection to Uncle Young Gil. ”

Jiyong watched as tears welled up in Jiwon’s eyes. He watched as he clutched his shirt and cried. Still, the story is not yet done. He knows he needs Sunghoon’s explanation but the younger is still inside the operating room and cannot answer his questions so he needs Sunghoon’s other half to know the truth first before questioning the younger. Yes, he is hopeful that Sunghoon would be alive.He is strong. He is strong.

In his surprise, Jiwon stood up and started walking away, his eyes full of fire. He knows that look. That was the look that Sunghoon was wearing before meeting Uncle Young Gil. He hastily stand up and moved in front of the younger.

“You can’t!”

“Hyung, move away! I can’t – I just want—Fuck! He can’t do this to Sunghoon without going to jail! No! Going to jail is not enough! I am going to kill him!”

“He is well taken care of.” That answer stopped the younger but still he looked scary and ready to kill his uncle. “He is already arrested and will be going on a trial for all the wrongdoings that he had done. Sunghoon and I have gathered enough evidence to put him up to jail for the rest of his life. And if proven guilty, will be executed. Right now all we need to do is to pray and stay at Sunghoon’s side, alright? He knows this would happen.”

“What?” That statement appalled him.

“He knows this would happen but still—

“He chose me.”

“Yes.”

“He chose me.”

“Jiwon.”

“He chose me.”

“I know.”

“Hyung” Jiwon cried, “He was ready to die for me. But what would happen if he dies? What would happen to me if he dies? I couldn’t. He is everything I want.He is my everything, hyung. I couldn’t” he bawled like a child in front of Jiyong. Jiyong felt the love Jiwon has for his younger brother. How much he loves Sunghoon was felt by him and it crushed his heart. What would happen to them, if the younger couldn’t make it?

After hours and hours of waiting, the operation was done. The doctor assigned to Sunghoon went out to face his family.

“It was successful. We managed to get the bullet out. It misses his heart by mere inches. We will be monitoring the patient during the first 12 hours.  Until then, please do call for us if you have questions.”

They exhaled the breath that they were holding. Relieved and happy, both smiled and hugged each other before hugging Seulgi who came an hour ago.

“He made it. That’s our Sunghoonie.”

“Yes, that’s our Sunghoonie.” Jiyong echoed Jiwon’s words with a big smile.

Sunghoon was already transferred to a room when Jiyong told Jiwon that he can see him first. Elated, Jiwon smiled to the older and nodded.

Jiwon went near Sunghoon and hold his hand, carefully with tears of relief flowing through his eyes, he said “Sunghoon-ah, thank you.” Jiwon feel as if how much he loves the younger only intensified. “I love you so so much. Thank you for fighting. And thank you for choosing me. I am only going to choose you too. Always.”

It took him a day before he woke up. Jiwon was asleep beside him and was holding his hand. Sunghoon smiled gently, and when he remembered that he is now free, he smiled wide. With tears on his eyes, he run his fingers through Jiwon’s hair. “I am free now, Jiwon. I love you.” Slowly, he bent down to kiss Jiwon’s head. Jiwon stirred on his sleep at that, blinking his blurry eyes, he saw a set of white teeth smiling down on him before his mind fully registered Sunghoon’s teary face staring lovingly at him. In an instant he was up on his feet and was embracing him. He was careful with his hug, he doesn’t want to hurt Sunghoon.

“I love you. I love you. I love you. I love you!” Jiwon said, showering the other with little kisses all over his face.

“And I you.” Sunghoon answered, kissing Jiwon gently on the lips. “Thank you, hyung.”

“No, I should be the one thanking you. Thank you for fighting, Sunghoon. Thank you for waking up. And thank you for choosing me.” He ended with a smile but his eyes is starting to tear up.

Sunghoon’s eyes are welling up with tears too. “Thank you for fighting for me too. Thank you for choosing me. Thank you for letting me feel in love and for letting me feel happiness. Thank you for everything you have done to me. I am only giving you what you deserve. And you deserve the whole me. Now that I am free, we can now live freely too. I am guessing, Jiyong hyung told you my story?”

“He did.” He quietly answered “But still I love you. I love you more. Just please please please don’t leave me behind on whatever you are planning next time.”

“Im sorry, i made you worried, didn’t I. Next time, I will.

“You promise?” Jiwon cutely asked, his cute childlike child acting up

“I promise.” And he sealed it with a kiss.

CHAPTER 2:

The heart is more and more hotter like being burned by a fire, Jiwon cannot stop rubbing his hands so as to relieve the feeling of intense tension that isconstantly rounding him up.

– Why are they so long?

Jiwon is very impatient now. Jaeduk knows that, because he is also as nervous as Jiwon. The sweat streams out from his forehead, and the back of hisshirt is wet too. Jaeduk frowns slightly. His heart is beating harder and harder. Jaejin and Suwon have appeared.

The shadows of Jaejin and Suwon shows up from afar. Their faces are so puzzling. They are always express their attitude by the weird and unusual waysso Jaeduk never can guess what they think.

– Jaejin, Suwon, how is it going on?

Jiwon pushes Jaeduk out of the car and hurriedly asks.

– Jiwon hyung…

Jiwon knits his brows. His face suddenly turns pale even though he has not really understood anything yet.

– …

– WHAT’S HAPPEN? SAY IT!!!

The atmosphere becomes suffocating that crushes Jiwon’s heart and tortures it utterly. His face’s skin flushes up and every nervure is visible on the back of his hands. He seems to be able to faint at any moment. Jaeduk thinks about the worst result. Observing Suwon’s unintelligible face then turning his eyes to Jaejin, Jiwon thinks … he has understood all.

– No way! That’s no way, right?!!!

– Calm down, hyung… – Jaejin tried to reassure Jiwon falling down.

Jiwon’s knees immediately drop on the ground, tears begin streaming down on his face. Having not bother about anything around himself, Jiwon screams out loud. He feels regret, very regret, because he did not hold Sunghoon and also could not fulfil his responsibility for protecting his love.

“Sunghoon … That is impossible”.

– Huyng, I have not finished yet.

-…

– We have to keep looking for Sunghoon. That person is not him.

Ji Won opens his eyes wide – the eyes still remaining traces of tear – and looks at Su Won. His fit of anger explodes because he has just suffered from a heart attack.

– Ya!!! What are you doing, Suwon? When we were in deep water, did you give a non-committal answer to me?

Jiwon wants to rush violently at Suwon for retaliating but seeing Suwon just shows his teeth and laugh, overjoyed so Jiwon is also resigned to giving up.

– Haizza. You have threaten us with death, you know?

– I’m sorry.

Suwon bends his body forward.

– Ya Lee Jaejin, did you seduce Suwon?

– No… no. *embarrassed*

Jaeduk feels relieved in mind, tells off Suwon and Jaejin. Ji Won thinks that he has just taken off a burden. Remembering the last moment, Jiwon cannot believe how fast he can fall down like that. Because of Sunghoon? Is Jiwon really afraid of losing Sunghoon? Jiwon thinks he is totally mad. However, after all, the question is still “Where is Sunghoon? Is he okay?”. Everything that is going on on Ji Won’s mind makes him tired, but until the day seeing Sunghoon with self’s own eyes, Jiwon will not let himself give up.

Everything turns out all right. Jiwon returns to the company when the lunch break has been over. Waiting for news from the early morning so Jiwon is also hungry, but he does not want to eat. Back in the chair, he accidentally sees a photo in an opening small drawer.

– Sunghoon…

When he was 17 years old and Sunghoon was 15 years old, both of them chanced on each other in Hawaii when they went there to study abroad. Jiwon never forgets the image of a cute Korean schoolboy with chubby cheeks, curious eyes and a smile like sunshine entering his class in the morning. Jiwon was a lazy student who came to the classroom just to lay his head down on the table for sleeping and Sunghoon was asked to wake up Jiwon by the teacher.

– Where do you live?

That was the question Jiwon gave to Sunghoon as an acquaintance. Jiwon’s mind still imprints the image of two people at that moment. That look and that smile has left Jiwon and gone away for a long time.

Looking at every line on the photo so long, a lot of beautiful memories as a slow film make Ji Won touched. After leaving Hawaii, Jiwon and Sunghoon were separated, until Jiwon heard that Sunghoon was being induced into the criminal world. Jiwon risked his life to save Sunghoon many times and then he realized he loved Sunghoon. He really loved Sunghoon, but it was still hard to accept Sunghoon’s temper when Sunghoon sometimes still sworeand they argued. A period later, suddenly Sunghoon was not so anymore, because he wanted to change to be loved Jiwon. Ji Won bursts of laughing. That was very interesting.

In spite of the hundreds of thoughts are still appearing in every corner of the brain, Jiwon continues with so many books being piled up in front of him.

.

– Jaeduk, Suwon, do you want to go out for drinking alcohol?

– Hyung, drinking alcohol with you means that until we don’t know the way to coming home anymore, that is only called “the end” – Su Won grumbles. He always likes to grumble to others like that.

– Jiwon hyung, if you agree to go for an hour and then we will be with you, okay?

– No problem. Only one hour.

Ji Won quickly accepts Jaeduk’s request. It is simple for him. Jiwon does not know why today he suddenly has the interest to drink alcohol, perhaps in his heart still contains some complicated feelings that hard to explain.

2 am…

– Hyung, come on. It’s been over one hour. You agreed and then rejected yourself.

Jaeduk urges Ji Won to go home. Jaeduk does not dare to drink much because he has to drive.

Su Won sits next to Jaeduk, crosses his arms and looks at Jiwon moving from side to side. Suwon shakes his head, feels both funny and pity. He whispers into Jaeduk’s ear:

– Do you think Ji Won will remind the problem of buying my car nearly 10 years ago to blame me again?

Jaeduk sighs:

– Maybe. You should go home first.

– Go with me. Let him stay alone.

– What’s wrong? – Jaeduk is surprised. Suwon may also tipsy. – Why do you think of leaving Jiwon hyung alone?

Su Won puts the chin on his hands, stares at Jaeduk’s innocent eyes. JaeDuk looks like a dazed deer in the forest of dry leaves. Suwon bursts into laughing and replies:

– I will take a taxi. Drive carefully!

Jaeduk nods his head for approval. Everytime Jang Suwon wants to court fondling from Jaeduk, he will ask Jaeduk to take him home, but Jaeduk never does not carry Suwon. They always go everywhere together.

Jaeduk sighs, stands up and pulls Ji Won’s arm. He says loudly:

– Hyung, hurry up. You drank alcohol too much so how to drive your car?

Busan’s voice sounds like Jaeduk’s blame makes Jiwon startled. Jiwon holds his head up, his dim eyes watch Jaeduk trying to help him sit up. Suddenly Jiwon feels headache and vomits that make Jaeduk panic and confused.

– Hey, lead him away. He makes my stall dirty.

– Yes. I’m sorry.

Jaeduk is such gentle and humble. Jiwon laughs in his dream. If that is Sunghoon, will the stall’s owner must hear Sunghoon volley curses from the east to the west? However, it was so strange when during ten past years, Sunghoon rarely asked Ji Won to go out for eating. Sunghoon knew cooking, and often did nan-ja-wat-seul for Jiwon – a Chinese dish Jiwon loved so much. Sunghoon, in Jiwon’s eyes, is a good kid but too stubborn in self-control.

Everything around is like reversed, Jiwon falls asleep in the car and he is taken home by whole-hearted Jaeduk.

At noon in the next morning, Ji Won wakes up. Having a ringing in his head makes him extremely uncomfortable.

– Oh my goodness. It’s late.

Jiwon tries to stand up but loses his balance and sits down on the bed.

– Hey Eun Jiwon.

Jiwon hears Jaejin’s voice echoing in his ear.

– Let me worry about the company today. I told your mom that you weren’t well.

– Thank you, Jaejin.

Lee Jaejin also comes from Busan like Jaeduk who is an eccentric but non-talkative character. Jaejin has the kind of thoughts and rules of living extraordinary that people cannot find out. He is not good at business when he used to close a small restaurant but in return, he is very kind. Jaejin knows caring about others and he also can quickly acquire the work to do, so Ji Won still entrusts to Jaejin every time he cannot be present at the company. Jiwon has never stop feeling proud of the brothers who have appeared in his life during the past few years. They are like the most precious gift God has given to him after his study in Hawaii.

The doorbell rings. Jae Duk’s familiar voice resounds:

– Jiwon hyung, open the door.

– I’m coming.

– Tada ~ coffee for you here.

Jaeduk smiles and gives the plastic cup stagnating cold water outside to Jiwon. Besides Jaeduk, it cannot lack Suwon, of course. Jiwon sniggers and says:

– Do you have to carry with you your debt all day?

– Huh? – Jaeduk slowly understands then turns to look at Suwon glaring at Ji Won’s face.

– What’s up, Jang Suwon?

Ji Won takes a sip of coffee, teases Su Won cheerfully. Jiwon is taking revenge on Suwon for his non-committal answer on Jiwon’s fear yesterday.

– Jiwon yah, from now on I will never let Jaeduk go drinking with you anymore.

– What?

– Every time you promise and then you’re completely drunk that still don’t want to back home. You are really weird.

Ji Won feels like there are a lot of emotions running around his body. Jiwon cannot remember what he said, how he acted when he getting drunk, but Jiwon still believes Jaeduk and Suwon can be the holds for him when he needs to be shared.

– I’m sorry. Is it okay? I will learn from experience.

– Learn what? Huh?

– Hey Suwon. – Jaeduk hurriedly stops. – New day has just come, have you come here to pick a quarrel with Jiwon hyung?

Su Won goes away. Jiwon and Jaeduk looks at each other and laughs. Jang Suwon looks cool, but still be childish.

– Thank you for buying me coffee. Now I have to go out.

– I will come home. Goodbye hyung.

Ji Won puts on a white shirt, slowly combs his hair hanging down. Standing in front of the mirror, Jiwon suddenly thinks that this style looks appropriate to him then smiles wryly and leaves. Will Eun Jiwon today be like a handsome man in a love novel?

Walking slowly through the busy streets, Jiwon finds himself a new source of life. The rhythm of the busy Seoul, it has been a long time that he has not enjoyed it, after many days so dark in his marriage. Suddenly Jiwon remembers a beautiful day more than two years ago, when Sunghoon wheedledinto going out, although being tired of work, Jiwon agreed; the same day, two people stood in front of each other and promised that they will never let their relationship over. Everything… really has the potential to change.

Waiting for the traffic light turning red to cross the street, Jiwon suddenly sees a familiar person appearing on the opposite sidewalk.

That face…

That look…

That lips…

– Sunghoon!

Jiwon dashes from his sidewalk and runs as flying that does not mind about the cars rushing at him and hooting noisy. All his life, Jiwon does not believe he will misjudge Sunghoon with someone else. Kang Sunghoon, always be the only one.

The sound of the car stopping hurriedly makes Ji Won panic. Sitting down and embracing his head as a reflex action, Ji Won is “petrified”. The red light starts, the passers-by looks at him with their curious and strange eyes, there are whispers somewhere that he intends to do a commit suicide or his mind has problems.

– Hyung, are you okay?

Suddenly, someone extends his hand to help Jiwon. A little panic, Jiwon quickly grabs it and stands up.

“Sunghoon!”

The boy who is standing in front of Jiwon is Kang Sunghoon.

– You…

– Are you OK? Enter the road-side.

Ji Won notices something very unusual. Following Sunghoon enter inside, Jiwon suddenly grabs Sunghoon’s shoulder and twists him round. That is really Sunghoon. Jiwon hugs Sunghoon tightly although Sunghoon struggles to escape his arms.

– Hey. What are you doing?

– Where did you go in the last two years? Do you know how much I miss you, Kang Sunghoon?

– Why do you know my name?

– What’s happen Sunghoon?

Sunghoon takes a step back. Seeing his face dazed like a kid facing a strange adult, Jiwon thinks of something unsafe.

“What the hell is going on? Don’t you recognize me?”

– You know my name. Who are you?

 

CHAPTER 3:

– You know my name. Who are you?

– Sunghoon, what are you doing here?

From afar, there is a tall and thin man wearing a black suit and carrying a briefcase for those who working in the workplace. Glancing at the serious appearance can also expect him to be a successful businessman.

– Jiyong?

– Jiwon hyung?

Ko Jiyong, the childhood friend of Jiwon, Jaejin, Jaeduk, Sunghoon and Suwon. The six-member group was attached to each other as shadow figures during the twenties, when the group’s eldest member, Jiwon, was only 18. Seven years later, Ji Yong abruptly went abroad to pursue a career in business. From that moment, all lost contact with him. In Jiwon and the rest of people’s subconscious, Jiyong’s images became afire on ice reminding them of the warmth and joy of youth. Jiyong’s appearance at this moment is too sudden to Jiwon.

– Finally we meet again – Ji Won smiles and says hello. – How are you?

– I’m fine. And you?

– Me too.

Suddenly Jiwon sees Sunghoon panic and advance towards Jiyong. The small figure hiding behind the long and large back makes Jiwon’s heart like being stifled so he cannot breathe.

– Tell me what happened.

Three people go to a nearby coffee shop. Jiyong is moderate and he looks very swell like a true CEO. Jiyong also does not want to waste a lot of time, he begins the problem Jiwon wants to hear by saying:

– Sunghoon temporarily lost his memory.

– What do you say?

Jiwon is haggard. The news likes “a bolt from the blue” that makes him sink deeply into silence.

Jiyong says that two weeks ago, he accidentally saw Sunghoon lying unconscious near a dark alley when he went home late after work. Recognizing that was Sunghoon, Jiyong stopped the car and took him to the hospital. Later, Ji Yong heard the doctor said that Sunghoon had lost his memory temporarily due to a huge emotional shock. Since then, Jiyong started caring for Sunghoon but there was no way to remind Sunghoon of himself and those who around him to find his family.

– I’m really sorry that our previous photos, after a clean-up, I lost them. I know we all cherish those happy days, and now it will be good for Sunghoon to remember everyone, but…

– Don’t have to blame yourself, Jiyong. It was because I couldn’t protect him. But why didn’t you tell the police?

– I hope you understand me. I only thought how to make Sunghoon gradually be well again at my house that didn’t want to take him to the police station. The police may be makes difficulties and scare for him.

– I see…

Ji Won slightly looks at Sunghoon that is also looking vaguely at his side. Realizing Jiwon’s eyes, Sunghoon hastily dodges and turns to Jiyong as if to ask for help. Sunghoon himself knows he has lost his memory. He knows that he is living on Jiyong too, but apart from that way, Sunghoon has no other.

– Jiyong, during the past time you worked hard. Can you leave Sunghoon for me?

– What are you talking about? – Sunghoon immediately responses.

– Is that okay?

– During the past two years when he gone missing, his family, I and the remaining three children had been looking for him so hard. Now that he’s here, I cannot let him disappear once again.

Ji Yong lightly breathes out, looks at Sunghoon who is “bristling up his thorn” for vigilance. Sunghoon does not stop looking at Jiwon as if he wants to say something but he cannot. He is also unable to remember who is sitting in front of him…

Ji Won leaves the coffee shop. With the unstoppable feet, Jiwon expects Jiyong to successfully persuade Sunghoon to let Jiwon take care of him. Jiwon wants to make up for those months and days when he made Sunghoon suffer from his cold and indifferent, because he could not be strong to face with the social prejudice about love between two men and then hurriedly got married to hide his bad feebleness. He made Sunghoon angry, made Sunghoon writhe, feel indignant, lonely and leave. Ji Won realizes that they are all his fault.

“You could have been more cheerful and optimistic if I had known how to make a stable hold for you. I was wrong.”

The door is open. Jiyong comes out with Sunghoon shyly behind him.

– Now I leave Sunghoon for you. Please take him to the hospital regularly to check his condition.

Jiyong grabs Sung Hoon’s wrist and leads Sunghoon to Jiwon’s side. What Jiyong have done for Sunghoon, Jiwon really does not know what to do to requite.

– Thank you. Keep in touch.

– Keep in touch. Goodbye hyung.

Jiyong turns away and walks towards a far way until his back is only a small dot under the sunlight that does not too “crisp” in a warm summer day.

– Where do you lead me to?

– Go home.

– Let me go.

Sunghoon takes back his hand and takes a few steps backwards.

– What did Jiyong tell you about me?

– You’re not a bad person. *small voice*

– So do you believe in Jiyong?

Sunghoon does not answer and only knits his brows. Jiwon smiles then holds tightly Sunghoon’s hand. Sunghoon has been thinner already when the blood vessels’ lines on his hands become visible. Recognizing that, Jiwon is very hurt.

“I will never let you go again”.

.

Hearing that Jiwon found out Sunghoon, Jaejin, Jaeduk and Suwon rush to Jiwon’s house. Just entering the house, Jaeduk gladly asks:

– Where is Sunghoon?

– Sh!…

Sunghoon is sleeping. He is lying on Jiwon’s bed, holding Jiwon’s pillow, being absorbed in the soft cotton wool and spending a daydream of unbroken sleep. Sunghoon used to have trouble with falling asleep, but maybe because Jiyong took good care of Sunghoon so he could sleep easily like that.

– Can Sunghoon sleep easily here? – Jaejin speaks out when he feels strange.

– Actually, he’s having the temporary memory loss. It started two weeks ago.

– What do you say!!!?

All three people are shocked. It was two years Sunghoon went missing and now he is suffering the dementia, what happened during those years? Everyone keeps silent and looks Sunghoon sleeping. That face, even one feature, still has not changed.

– Jiwon hyung, when are you going to bring Sunghoon back to his house? – Jaejin continues to ask.

– I… I will keep him here until the day he remembers.

– What do you say? Sunghoon’s mom and Yoonji are looking forward to him every day. You know?

– I know – Ji Won explains slowly – … but I wants to make up for him.

Suddenly, Suwon pushes the chair to stand up and says:

– Jaejin huyng, let’s take Sunghoon to his house.

– What are you doing?

Ji Won also follows his reaction and stands up then looks at Suwon surprisingly. The atmosphere becomes stuffy and cold as if a fight is going to happen. Jaejin is still cold and he does not speak anything. Jiwon and Suwon are like fire and water, Jaejin is too familiar to that. Su Won approaches Sunghoon and being stopped by Jiwon. Jaeduk panics. He runs to separate them and says with a small voice:

– Let him sleep.

Everyone looks at Sunghoon again. The pink hair glistens under the warm rays of the sun streaming through the window and creating a rainbow that is like beautifying that beauty to become mysterious and magical. Ji Won reassures himself and backs to the seat. Suwon sits down next to Sunghoon. His heart cannot help hurting.

– In the old days that was you saved his life and gave him the hope in a society which is grim but it still has love and protection. In the end, you were the one who left him. Now you say you want to make up for him, is it pleasant to hear?

– Suwon…

– Let him say.

Jiwon interrupts Jaeduk. At this time, he can only accept the hardest words to be disabused when he really made mistakes.

– You gave Sunghoon your love, made Sunghoon love you and then you got married to gloss over your cowardliness. From the day we knew him until the day he realized he loved you, did you know how he changed because of you?

– Suwon, maybe in the depth of your mind, you still hate me very much. It’s just because you have no condition to say it, right?

Suwon keeps silent. He knows Jiwon will understand what he thinks about. How many times can Jiwon understand Suwon when they are friends during ten years? If two years ago Jiwon had understood Suwon’s wish that Jiwon and Sunghoon would be happy together forever, today could not have happened.

– I won’t say anything more.

Suwon takes Jaeduk out of Jiwon’s house. Jaejin also returns to the company. Sitting alone in the space with all silence, Jiwon knows he hasmastered what Suwon has just said. During the past two years, Suwon has never been so angry with Jiwon. Two people can be opposite but they always tease each other with jokes that make the opponent fall in the impasses and feel full of pent-up anger. However, it has nothing to take offence. It turns out that Jiwon has never understood Suwon as he thinks. Jiwon holds his head. He is very upset, uncomfortable and speechless.

Sunghoon is awake. He squints his eyes because of the sunlight. The man sitting and holding his head is the person whom Jiyong said that he would take good care of Sunghoon and help Sunghoon to remember everything. Sunghoon half-believes. His mind takes shape complicatedinner feelings’ waves.

“Is it sure?”

Seeing Ji Won come, Sunghoon closes his eyes and pretends not to wake up. Jiwon stands there and looks at Sunghoon for a long time. He slowly approaches and bends down to kiss deeply on Sunghoon’s pink hair then whispers…:

– Have a good sleep. I’ll cook for you.

… and leaves.

Sunghoon afraids of being found out so he carefully opens his eyes. His mind keeps asking himself: Who is that man actually?

[REQUESTED] Jiyong’s old interview trans: sheilaxjung

I = Interviewer

J : Jiyong

I : Finally we meet the one whom we missed a lot. Hi, Ko Jiyong

J : Hello

I : Nice to meet you

J : As you can see, I lost so much weight and I also didn’t dye my hair. I don’t know if I look nice or not but I try to look nice

I : How have you been?

J : I travelled a lot, I practiced acting and I also met my schoolmates and my hometown friends whom I didn’t get to meet for so long

J : Both acting and singing are hard. Even though I haven’t properly acted, as I keep learning, it does make me think that it’s a hard thing to do. Until now, I haven’t got the hang of it

J : I don’t have the confidence for it now, but I want to try a crying acting. I don’t know whether it’s because I’m a man but I found a charismatic actor is really cool. Such as Ahn Seunggi, Park Jungwoo and Jung Woosung

I : All Sechskies members have appeared in so many shows. Is there any reason why you came appeared way later than them?

J : I want to appear once I’m prepared for it, hoping for a good result

I : How do you feel while recording for Kang Sunghoon’s album?

J : First of all, us in a recording room together has been so long. It’s almost 2 years. It was really refreshing. During the recording for Sechskies’ 2nd album was so hard, we were only high-schoolers back then

I : Do you keep touch with other Sechskies members?

J : We keep in touch even though we didn’t get to meet each other a lot after we disbanded, since we have other things to do.

I : Do they tell you what are they up to?

J : I don’t really know the details of what Jaejin hyung is doing yet. Jiwon hyung and Sunghoon are promoting as a solo. Suwon and Jaeduk hyung are promoting as a duo

I : We got an information that you’re filming a mini series, your fans were so excited but there was a problem caused the filming to be cancelled. What happened?

J : I was almost to be casted on a mini-series. It’s because I feel like the characters didn’t match me so I gave it up. I need more time to practice acting.

I : You were active as an internet jockey. Can you explain what kind of program is it?

J : First of all, it’s a law program aired on channel O. Since i’m originally close with Kwon Hyunggi (lawyer) and the deputy head so I ended up working with them.

I : it must’ve been hard to do that kind of program. Did you experience any hard things?

J : of course. Since I know nothing about law. I also had a hard time trying to understand difficult words. But I learned a lot in short times. From a person who doesn’t know anything about law now I now a little bit about it. I used to talk really fast but now I talk more slowly. Since I talked too fast, I made a lot of mistakes (NG) during filming. I thought “ah before I learned anything, I have to fix this first”. It’s been a huge help for me.

I : Eun Jiwon laughed when he knew about you were doing a law program

J : i think it’s natural for him to do that. Even my sister, family and my friends all laughed at me. So I kinda expected Jiwon hyung to do the same

I : Kim Jaeduk was asked about how he feels seeing Eun Jiwon performing as a solo. And he answered that Eun Jiwon looks lonely

J : I also felt the same when I saw Jiwon hyung’s first stage but as I keep watching his performance, I thought that he’s cool

I : Kang Sunghoon is also performing a solo with different genre compared to Sechskies used to had. He transformed into a ballad singer. What do you think of him?

J : During Sechskies’ days, he’s known to be the cute and bright one. So, when he sings ballad songs, I thought “he’s all grown up now”

I : Please send Kang Sunghoon a video message, thinking that he’s watching the show

J : Sunghoon-ah, it’s been so long. Calling your name has also been so long. We’ve known each other and been friends for 12 years already since we’ve met during 3rd grade. Anyway, seeing you doing well while performing a solo makes me proud and feels good. So, let’s work harder in the future. I wish you to be Kang Sunghoon who shines brighter as a solo

I : Have you ever had the thought of wanting to stand on stage again as a singer?

J : Of course I’m reminded with the memories from old days. But I don’t have that kind of thought for now.

I : It’s for now. But we don’t know what will happen in the future

J : I don’t know but i don’t think I’ll ever do that again, most likely.

I : Please tell us your activities plan in the future

J : First of all, I’ll study harder in acting. Until I think that I’m prepared enough, I’ll keep practicing. I don’t know whether a drama or movie will be the start but since my wish is a movie so I hope it comes true.

I : Can you at least tell us around what time will we expect your first work?

J : I think it’ll probably be around next year

I : Okay last one, please greet your beloved fans and our viewers.

J : It’s nice to see you all after so long. I’ll be Jiyong who works hard in other side of entertainment industry. I hope you all support me

I : Thank you so much. I wish you to be a cool actor

[FANACCS] Picnic with Eun Jiwon (Day 1 – 20170621) trans: sheilaxjung

*Jiwon held a picnic event on 20170621 with 20 selected 1Kyne members. There will be 2 events. Here’s the fanaccs for the 1st day*

When they were all drinking together, she suggested to do the ‘jjioni jjan’ (‘jjan’ is something like ‘cheers’) and he said “who is actually made the ‘jjioni’ nickname’ while laughing.

Jiwon poured the drink to each fans and when he was about to pour her drink, he said “what kind of ‘jjan’ you want me to say again?” And he said the ‘jjioni jjan’ in the end.

A fan asked Jiwon if he ever heard a saying that there are people who are more handsome than Eun Jiwon but none’s handsome like Eun Jiwon. Other fans were all agreed, adding that they call him Eunique, from Eun + unique. At that jiwon only sighed

She said that she’s happier on jiwon’s birthday than her own birthday. So when birthday party topic came out, jiwon said that as long as the fans congratulate him, its enough for him

Fans : how’s the japanese debut preparation going?
Jiwon : i’m doomed
Me : why!? The language?
Jiwon : yes! There are a lot of similar words so it’s hard
Fans : no! Your japanese is great

Fans : what do you like the most between ‘Be Well’ ‘Sad Song’ and ‘Three Words’?
Jiwon : ‘Sad Song!’ Honestly i also like the japanese version as well! I feel like i like the jap ver more
Me : Can you sing a little bit of the japanese version?
Jiwon : ? Of course i forgot it already! I’ll lipsyncs to it!

A fan gave him a sticker and he said that a lot of fans gave stickers on packages for him and he felt bad to throw those stickers away

He asked the fans if they feel cold or not. He worried if they’ll caught a cold just because they went picnic

Fans : oppa eat this chicken leg!
Jiwon : why?
Fans : because it’s the most delicious part!
Jiwon : no~ i’m okay. You guys can eat it~

Fans : please write “Lose weight!!” (On her handphone)
Jiwon : but its on your handphone though..
Fans : its okay so i’ll always look at it and feel motivated
Me and other fans : *whispered* but she’s pretty just the way she is now without having to lose weight. What if he really writes those?
But it seems like Jiwon heard them so he said this while looking at us, “hey i really wrote that though……”

Jiwon said there’s no plan to promote outside korea and japan for now. But they’ll do it if there’s a chance for them to promote more in overseas

Jiwon said that it would’ve been great if they can go picnic in the daytime but since the fans work, they cant do it.
He took care those who cant drink by giving them soda.
Before he ordered chicken&beer, he asked if any of them drive

A fan asked if he’ll hold a ost concert and another asked if he wants to do a solo concert and jiwon answered “of course i do”

A fan asked him if he can do instalive and he answered that he would rather do a vlive than instalive. He’s working hard to do a vlive but its not easy

Jiwon : today isn’t boring for you guys, right?
Fans : no ㅠㅠ it’s really fun ㅠㅠ oppa’s face is the most fun ㅠㅠㅠ
Fan : how about you? Is it boring?
Jiwon : rather than boring or not..i just wanted to see you all

Jiwon : is there anything you want to do?
Fans : looking at your face
Jiwon : my face? You can see it on TV
Fans : no ㅠㅠ you’re really different in real life
Jiwon : (serious face) different?
The fan meant to said that he’s really different from what the cameras shot but it seems jiwon was already misunderstood it

A fan brought season greeting’s diary to be signed by Jiwon
Jiwon : ahh so if you buy SG you’ll also got a diary? This is my first time seeing this~
Fan : please write “study harder”
Jiwon : who do you want to study harder?
Fan : me
Jiwon : *laughed*

A fan asked them if they’ll release another dance song and Jiwon shouted “기억해줄래!!!” (Will you remember me)
Jiwon : why? Kim Jaeduk danced really hard though!!

The fans asked Jiwon about Jaejin since there’s no news of him recently and Jiwon said that he just called him today (through chatroom) and even though Jiwon said he didnt know where Jaejin is but he’s doing well

Jiwon asked the fans if they watch NJTTW or not. Everyone said “yes its really fun”
Jiwon : they really dont let you off easy

He said that the concert is to be scheduled on september. The fans asked if the full album will be out before that or after
Jiwon : we have to release the full album. Because it’s been so long since we release one

They’re playing a game and during a fan’s turn, jiwon complained “you’re a coward if you do that” but he also did that during his turn and he said “why! I really am a coward!!! I’ve always been a coward!!”

Fan : i wish time will stop
Jiwon : you all have a home~
Fans : no we dont
Jiwon : what are you talking about~
Fans : we’ll sleep here
Jiwon : i think it’ll be better than going home at this hour

Fan : what are you going to do once you’re home?
Jiwon : tomorrow i’ll take my parents to somewhere
Fans : awwww~~~~
Jiwon : what ‘aww’? (Shy)

A fan asked if his knee is better nowadays and Jiwon said it’s good if he doesnt use it but it’s not if he does

Jiwon : i’ll never sing ‘sad song’ japanese ver live
Fans : can you at least sing the ‘DJ Don’t Stop’ part?
Jiwon : huh? That part!? (Bewildered)

The fans asked what he likes the best among 3 votes for fanmeet’s punishment outfits
Jiwon : i dont like them all
Fan : we dont know the results yet but seeing from the response, it’ll most likely be 2 or 3
Jiwon : wait what’s the 3rd one?
Fans : Blackpink’s ‘Playing with fire’
Jiwon : Alibaba is better then

A fan said that Jiwon’s photo in Yellow Universe where he sat on desk (?) is so handsome and asked what was he thinking
Jiwon : huh? What is that
Fans : the internet went wild because of that photo. They said you’re really handsome. They thought you’re a prince
Jiwon : (bit his lipㅠㅠ) stop it…….

“Oppa can you feel that you’re handsome nowadays?”
“Please be honest. After you had a shower, have you ever be like “wow i’m really handsome”?
“Oppa you’re the most handsome”
Jiwon : (bursted out laughing) stop it…stop it!! Lets have a drink~~

Jiwon said besides Jaejin, Jaeduk matches well with Japanese~ and he wondered if that’s because of his accent

A Big Change

Hi guys!!! Since I’m feeling happy today, what with my brother getting married and my Sechskies merchandise arriving I’m spreading the happiness by updating 2 chapters. Enjoy!!
===================================

December Year 1995 Honolulu Hawaii

Jiwon: Nothing much has changed. We’re still together, still in Hawaii. Still looking out for each other like brothers, but this time my heart begs to differ. I know how I feel about him now, I’m sure. I’ve fallen hard for him. It’s strange. I know my preference would still be a woman, but Sunghoon makes me feel…. complete somehow. I can’t seem to see my life without him, sometimes I’d think I was meant to met him for this reason. I’m still his brother though, and since I’m older I should be more responsible. He looks up to me, and I promised his mom I’ll take good care of him. We only have each other after all.

Jiwon watched as Sunghoon ran up and down the shore, playing tag with the waves. Over the years, Jiwon noticed Sunghoon’s features were more prominent than before, and he managed to get buffer, taller, making him more handsome. They were quite famous around the area actually. The opposite brothers, that’s how they call them. It’s still amazing how two polar opposites can get along so well.

“Hyung!!” Sunghoon waved at him from the beach. “Come play with me!”

I like watching you though.’ Jiwon thought.

Jiwon motioned for Sunghoon to keep going, indicating he prefers to keep still.

Sunghoon, instead of continuing, marched up to Jiwon’s position, sat down next to him and put his arm around his shoulders.

“Yah hyung, wae? Are you nervous for tomorrow?”

“No, I’m not..” said Jiwon, elbowing Sunghoon gently.

Sunghoon smirked. “Ei, yes you are!” he teased. “It’s a first for you anyway.”

“Shut up, I’m not at all.” Jiwon adamantly denied, but in reality, he was.

They were going to perform tomorrow during the academy’s foundation day. Sunghoon was known to perform during school events, but it’ll be the first time for Jiwon since he came to Hawaii. He only agreed because it was their last year, they’ll be graduating soon. Their classmates would often say Sunghoon influenced Jiwon positively, but Jiwon begged to differ.  He’d rather say they influence each other.

“Ha! Gwaenchana  hyung, I’ll be right beside you.”

“Oh, that comforts me a lot uri cheonsa-yah..” Jiwon sighed heavily. He was now regretting agreeing to it. “Hoon-ah, what if I mess up?” Jiwon asked nervously, finally admitting his feelings. He likes to sing and dance, but never in front of people. It was only through coincidence that Sunghoon found out.

*******

Flashback
2 years ago

Sunghoon came home from grocery shopping earlier than he expected. The super had fewer people than the usual, so he didn’t wait long in line to pay.

Upon entering the house, he first put away the groceries he bought and sought to find Jiwon.

A booming sound from Jiwon’s room caused Sunghoon to get curious and take a peek. Jiwon was singing and dancing to Tootsee Roll, oblivious of the fact that Sunghoon was watching him with an admiring smile on his lips.

***********

Since then Jiwon and Sunghoon would spend most of their free time singing and dancing to popular songs. Sunghoon would always try to persuade Jiwon to perform with him but he would always refuse. It took him 2 years to finally make Jiwon say yes.

“You’ll be fine hyung.” Sunghoon consoled. Jiwon didn’t have any idea how cool he looked when he’s performing. Sunghoon had to admit his charisma was overwhelming, it was no wonder Jiwon mesmerizes him. “Shall we practice one last time?”

“We should. I might forget the choreography.”

“Kaja!”

******

Day of the Performance

Jiwon: I can’t believe I’m really doing this. Sunghoon, that rascal. I just hope I don’t mess up.

Jiwon paced nervously in the back stage, while Sunghoon sat relaxed and watched him silently. After a while..

“Hyung, sit down. You’re going to implant your footsteps on the tiles.” Sunghoon said as he dragged Jiwon to the chair beside him.

Jiwon slumped on the chair, feeling defeated. “I don’t know why I agreed to this. Ya, should we just run away?” he said nervously.

Sunghoon quietly reached out and held his hand, making Jiwon stop fidgeting. This was the first time any of them held hands, and the sudden gesture surprised Jiwon. Sunghoon didn’t say anything. He just sat there and held his hand for a minute or so. A while later, their names were called. Sunghoon stood up, Jiwon following suit. Sunghoon then turned to face Jiwon.

“Hyung, you trust me right?”

“Of course.”

“Then believe me when I say you’ll be fine. Just pretend that it’s only the two of us. Or you can pretend that each and everyone of them is me. Pretend you’re dancing for me.” Sunghoon said as he still held Jiwon’s hand tightly.

Jiwon smiled. “Arasseo.. I’m doing this because of you anyway.”

Sunghoon smiled at him in return. “Kaja. Let’s make all the girls swoon.”

And they went up the stage to the roar of the audience. As soon as the music started, Jiwon forgot that he was in front of people. He felt that he was in their house, merely practicing, with only Sunghoon beside him. They danced in perfect sync without making mistakes, and if the audience’s cheers were any indication, they were the stars of the program, capturing the hearts of men and women alike.

***************

*Lee Ho-yeon sat inside the auditorium quietly, watching the performances go by. He was quite interested in the 2 teens who danced to a remix of Vanilla Ice’s Ice Ice Baby and 69 Boyz’ Tootsee Roll. Even if the songs were a few years old, those two made it look fresh with their charms. He was especially drawn to the one with a pretty smile, although the darker one was more charismatic on stage. Together, though, those two owned the stage. Maybe it’s time for him to present another group to the industry.

He walked along the campus in hopes of finding the two when he came across them in the cafeteria.

“Hyung, what do you want to eat?” the blond-haired boy asked.

So they’re Korean!’ Mr. Lee thought excitedly.

‘You know what I like, just get them for me.” ordered the black-haired boy, sitting on one of the tables, while a group of girls seated themselves on the next table clearly wanting his attention. Strangely though, the boy didn’t pay them much attention. He was focused on his friend who was still in line waiting to pay.

“Hey Matthew, why don’t you and Ricky sit with us?” asked one of the girls.

Mr. Lee watched with interest. His attitude’s very different from the others, but that cold personality has a charismatic appeal.

“No, thanks. You’re already crowded.” the guy named Matthew answered, clearly annoyed.

“Hyung, your food’s here.” said the blond-haired boy as he sat down next to Matthew.

His smile was different this time, as he thanked his friend. It seems he’s only warm to people he’s close to.

“Hey Ricky, why don’t you and Matthew join us!” said the girl once more, clearly not taking no for an answer.

The guy named Ricky just smiled. “Thanks, but we prefer it this way.”

“Gosh, you two only spend time with each other, are you guys dating or something?”

At that, Matthew glared. Even Mr. Lee had to admit he looked scary, as the girl suddenly cowered.

“Say what again Jean?” Matthew rose, as Ricky tried to calm him down.

“Hyung,  geudeul-eul singyeong sseuji mala (don’t mind them). Cmon sit back down.”

But Matthew seemed irritated at the girl.

“I was just joking.” said the girl timidly.

“You wanna know why I don’t want to join you? Because I don’t like you. Need I say more?”

“Hyung! Geumanhaeyeo.” Ricky pulled at Matthew’s shirt forcing him to sit. “She just wants your attention. You shouldn’t have been so cool on stage a while ago if you didn’t want to be bothered.” said Ricky jokingly, clearly wanting to ease Matthew’s tension.

“Wow, look at you, pinning this as my fault.” but he smiling slightly at Ricky.

“I’m just saying…” said Ricky. “Hyung, jeongmal meosisseoyo (you were really cool). I’m not surprised they’re acting like that.”

“Stop it already. That’s the last time you’re going to make me dance in front of everyone.”

Mr. Lee couldn’t hold much longer, he approached the two boys and quietly introduced himself.

” Annyeonghaseyo..”

Since he was older, the two boys got to their feet slowly and greeted him, bowing low.

“Please sit down. There’s no need to be formal here, we’re overseas anyway.”

The girls on the other table looked  curiously at them but since he was speaking Korean, they lost interest.

“I’ll make it short. My name is Lee Ho-yeon.” and he took a business card from his pocket and gave it to them. “I’m the owner of an agency called DSP Media based in Korea, and we’re currently recruiting talented young teens to join us. Do you mind if I ask what your names are?”

“Eun Jiwon-ibnida. Igeossneun Kang Sunghoon-ibnida (I’m Eun Jiwon. This is Kang Sunghoon).” Jiwon answered, taking a look at the business card.

“I saw you dance a while ago during the program, that’s why I took interest. Do you guys want to singers?”

Jiwon looked at him skeptically. Mr. Lee knew that look and he had to admit, for a teenager, he’s smart when it comes to strangers. He smiled at him.

“I’m not a fraud if that’s what you’re thinking.”

“Well, they all say that in the first place.” Jiwon answered.

“Yes they do, but I can assure you that I’m legitimate.”

“We’ll have to think about it.” Jiwon replied. He doesn’t want to jump into decisions hastily, especially since both of them are being recruited. Jiwon wouldn’t mind doing it with Sunghoon, but he wanted to be sure just in case.

“I knew you were going to say that. Anyways, I’ll be staying in Hawaii for a week. You can give me a call of the decision you make okay?” Mr. Lee said then he stood up.

“Nae, algesseumida ( yes, I understand).” Jiwon replied, also standing up and bowing. Sunghoon followed suit.

After Mr. Lee left, Sunghoon faced Jiwon. “What do you think hyung.”

Jiwon was deep in thought. “We’ll talk about this at home Hoonie-ah.” he said.

“Arasseo hyung.”

************

Jiwon just got off the phone after he placed a long distance call to his dad. His father had connections in the entertainment industry due to his business. Jiwon called to confirm if DSP Media was really a legitimate company.

“You’re saying you were approached by Lee Ho-yeon?” his father asked.

“Yeah, Dad. He gave us his business card.”

“Aren’t you lucky. He’s the owner. I don’t know if he’s the CEO but he owns the company. They’re still small though if you compare them with others since they’ve only started. But **Firetruck is really popular.”

“Firetruck?”

“It’s a group they’re handling. You’re saying you want to try? You’ve never liked singing in front of people.”

“Well, I get to sing with Sunghoon so I think it’ll be okay. Besides I love music anyway.”

“Ah, Sunghoon-ssi, no wonder. I should visit the temple and thank Buddha for letting you meet Kang Sunghoon.”

“Arasseo, ara.I’m lucky I met Sunghoon. You know, you and Mom are the same.”

Jiwon’s father laughed. “It’s just that you’re a totally different person now as compared to 2 years ago.”

Jiwon sighed. They’re making him look like such a bad student, and only Sunghoon managed to change him. He’d have to agree though. He has a lot to be thankful to Sunghoon for.

“Dad, is it okay if we do this?” he asked. If his parents were against it, he’d have to forget about it. One thing about Jiwon is that he would ask his parents regarding big decisions.

“Well… it would mean foregoing your college education though. But… if you really wanna do it I see why not. Besides, you’re still young.”

Jiwon contemplated the offer. Accepting it meant going back to Korea, where they would definitely train. Rejecting would still mean going back to Korea and applying for college. Jiwon always wanted to try different things but becoming a singer was one he never imagined. Since the opportunity already presented itself, he wanted to take the risk, but only if Sunghoon joined him.

“Hyung..”

Jiwon opened his eyes, and saw Sunghoon standing in his bedroom door watching him.

“Come in Hoonie-ah,” said Jiwon sitting up from his bed.

Sunghoon sat beside Jiwon, trying not to look too embarassed at seeing him topless. It was his room anyways.

“Ahem…” he cleared his throat.

“Did you talk to your Mom?” Jiwon asked, oblivious to the fact that Sunghoon was blushing.

“Uhm, yeah.. she said it’s up to me, though from the sound of it, she’s highly opposed to the idea.”

“Well, you’re still technically a minor.”

“Hyung, there are a lot of singers younger than me. Nan…hago-ssipeunde (I wanna do it)…. but only if you’ll join me.”

Jiwon smiled at that. He faced Sunghoon, whose cheeks were really red now. “It amazes me sometimes how we think alike. So, is that our only term?”

“Well, yeah, and that we’d only be joining after graduation. It’s only months away..”

“Yeah, 6 more months. So it’s a duo then.”

“Nae hyung..”

“Arasseo.. Tomorrow morning I’ll give Mr. Lee a call. Anyway this calls for a celebration.”

Sunghoon raised his eyebrows. “What are you planning hyung?”

“Drinks. It’s about time you learn.”

*****************

Author’s note: *Lee Ho-yeon is currently the owner of DSP Entertainment, the former agency of Sechskies. I don’t know if he was the CEO at the time they were discovered.

**Firetruck was the first group that DSP launched. They were successful and up to now are still loved by older generations.

The next chapter is a side-story, not really a full chapter. Hope you enjoy!! 😘😘😘😘

 

Side Story – What Happens When You’re Drunk?

Sunghoon looked apprehensively at the bottles of beer on the table. He hasn’t tried drinking before, and this will be the first.

“Hyung…” he called Jiwon, who was busy cooking something to eat while drinking.

“Hmmm?” Jiwon answered.

“You said so yourself that I’m still technically a minor, so why should I drink?”

“You’re not drinking to get drunk, you’re just learning. Don’t worry, I’ll keep you in check.”

I’m not worried.’ Sunghoon thought. “When did you start drinking hyung?” he asked.

“Same age as you are now.” Jiwon said simply.

“Oh, so I should take after you?”

Jiwon laughed, scooping up the fried chicken onto the plate and putting it on the table. Sitting down he opened one bottle and gave it to Sunghoon, who took it reluctantly.

“Hoon-ah, when I was your age, I got so drunk I couldn’t even make it back home. So no, you’re not taking after me.” Seeing as Sunghoon still held the bottle, Jiwon took it from him and poured some into a glass, then set it in front of Sunghoon.

“You weren’t alone?” asked Sunghoon.

“No,” Jiwon answered as he opened a bottle and poured a glass for himself. “It was Sienna’s 16th birthday party. You see, her parents are always away, so on her birthday she held a party for everyone. Since I was inexperienced, I ended up getting drunk. I woke up the next day, naked in bed with Sienna.”

“What?!” Sunghoon thought he misheard Jiwon. Surely, Jiwon wouldn’t allow losing himself like that.

Jiwon snickered. “I think she just undressed me. I still feel like a virgin though.”

“Hyung!!”

Jiwon laughed. “I’m joking. I did wake up naked but not beside Sienna.” Jiwon took a piece of chicken and gave it to Sunghoon. “Here, eat first, then take a sip. Beer doesn’t taste good when it’s no longer cold.”

Sunghoon followed what Jiwon said and coughed. The beer tasted bitter to him. “Ack! You like this kind of thing?” Sunghoon wondered.

“It’s only the first one that tastes nasty. After a while you’ll get used to the taste, and you’ll find it refreshing.” Jiwon said while carelessly eating a chicken.

“Hyung… were you really alone when you woke up?” Sunghoon asked, still curious of Jiwon’s past experience. He never told this story to him before, maybe because they never drank together.

“No…”

“Geureom, who were you with?”

“I was with Don.” said Jiwon seriously, but his eyes were laughing.

“Ei hyung!!”

Jiwon laughed again. “You look so serious, why do you wanna know?”

“I’m just curious…” Sunghoon said, taking a sip of beer hastily.

Jiwon looked hard at Sunghoon before answering. “Jessica.”

“Nae?”

“I was with Jessica.” Jiwon answered, downing the whole glass of beer.

“Aahh…” Sunghoon no longer wanted to know the rest. Whenever Jessica is mentioned, Jiwon’s eyes would always lose their glow. Sunghoon drank half the glass, regretting his question. He took a piece.of chicken to mask the bitterness of beer.

“It’s the past. Do you wanna hear the rest?”

“Hyung, if you’re uncomfortable with it, there’s no need. Let’s talk about something else.”

“Yeah, well, I made so many mistakes before I met you.”

“Then I guess, I should thank the heavens you haven’t made mistakes since I got here.”

“I told you you’re an angel.” Jiwon said, smiling at him.

There he goes again. Saying things out of the blue. Just why does my heart flutter whenever he calls me angel? I can’t understand this. I really can’t.

Sunghoon downed the glass of beer, prompting Jiwon to stop him.

“Ya! Slow down! You’re not used to drinking, you’ll get drunk easily that way.” taking away the glass from Sunghoon. He poured him another glass, but warned him. “Cheoncheonhi.”

Sunghoon gave him an 👌 ok sign.

****************************

They were both on their 4th bottle. Sunghoon looked already tipsy, his cheeks flushed red.

“I think you’ve had enough Hoon-ah.” said Jiwon, taking the glass from Sunghoon.

“I’m shill fine hyyung..” Sunghoon slurred.

“No, you’ve had enough. Gosh, you’re a lightweight. It’s a good thing we’re home.”

Jiwon started clearing the table, while Sunghoon sat slumping, his head resting on the backrest of the chair. Jiwon smiled.

‘Angels are not supposed to drink anyway.‘ Jiwon thought.

“Hyung…hmmm”

“Yeah?”

“What if someone told you they like you, how would you react?”

“It depends on who’s confessing.”

“What if it was me?”

“Eh?!”

“I’m just joking..but what if it was someone like me hyung, how would you react?”

Jiwon sat next to Sunghoon and looked at him square in the eye. Sunghoon’s eyes were unfocused. Jiwon sighed. Sunghoon was clearly drunk.

‘If it was you, I’d gladly accept you with no questions, but since you’re drunk, I’m gonna let this one go.’ Jiwon thought.

“Let’s go Hoon-ah. You’re drunk, let’s get you to bed.”

“Hyung…”

“Sunghoon-ah, let’s go.” Then putting Sunghoon’s arm around his shoulder, he guided Sunghoon towards his bedroom.

“Hyung, I need to pee.” Sunghoon said suddenly, making his way towards the bathroom tipsily, Jiwon right behind him.

After relieving himself, Sunghoon made his way towards his bed, Jiwon following along, making sure that Sunghoon got tucked in.

Instead of lying down, Sunghoon sat down and pulled Jiwon beside him, forcing him to sit down.

“Ya.” Jiwon tried to get up, but Sunghoon held him tightly by the arm, holding him down.

“Hyung, I guess I’m drunk.”

“Yes you are, you’re such a bad drinker. The alcohol goes straight to your brain rather than your stomach. Go to sleep Hoon-ah.” Jiwon said, trying to make him lie down, but Sunghoon was adamant.

“Still, I want you to know one thing.” and Sunghoon did the unexpected, he hugged Jiwon tightly who grew still at the sudden action. “Hyung, saranghae. Neol jinjja chuae. (Hyung, I love you. I really like you.)” then Sunghoon  grew limp against him, succumbing to sleep.

Jiwon sighed, pushing Sunghoon away from him and gently laying him down the bed. He caressed Sunghoon’s face with a finger, marvelling at his perfect features.

“If only you were sober when you said that, I wouldn’t hesitate to tell you how I feel no matter how weird it may seem. But I’m afraid you’ll forget this come morning. Still, it’s a good memory Hoonie-ah. Thank you. I really like you too.” he confessed to the sleeping Sunghoon, watching the rise and fall of his chest.

Then Jiwon did something he’s never done before. He kissed Sunghoon on the forehead, bidding him good night.

This was really a night of firsts.

*******************

Ai cham! My heart! 💞💞💞 Gosh, just when will they reveal their feelings for each other. Even I’m curious.😂😂😂

Please do note that the conversation  on the latter part is where Sunghoon’s supposed to be drunk, but since I find it hard to slur the words he utter, I decided to just write neatly. But please bear in mind that he’s drunk. 😂😂

Sechs Kies Cute Mistakes Collection

Eunleader, Always Sweet to Fans

Eunleader, Always Sweet to Fans

moonlightpetal:

Tsuntsun Sechs Kies Eunleader has always been known to be deredere to only three things: 1. Fans  2. Sechs Kies members  3. Animals (especially dogs ^_^) And out of those three, I wanted to write about how much he treasures his fans, before and now

In 2001, during a rehearsal for a stage of Murmur

image

Please, don’t crush my heart.

Jiwon, let me tell that to you! His smile really crushes hearts T_T Anyways, the killing part in that dance is when he “shoots” the audience with his fingers…

image
image

The rehearsal ends, and while he is waiting for the main stage, Jiwon talks with the fans that came to watch him. Some of the fans suddenly scream, “Oppa! Shoot me! Shoot me in the next stage!” At first he seems to hesitate a little but soon nods.

image

And on the main stage, he keeps the promise. He smiles and shoots at the fans who requested him to “shoot” at themHe’s so sweet to his fans…ㅠㅠ I want him to shoot me too!

Rehearsal video source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FivK0xVyd0

In 2016, in 능력자들 (The Capable Ones)

image

Fan: (teary) I can’t talk about that time [When Sechs Kies disbanded].

Jiwon: (Also becoming teary)

image
image

Jiwon: Why the hell are you getting it right?!

           I said, don’t interfere!

During capability testing time, Heechul “steals” correct test questions from the Sechs Kies fans, and Jiwon becomes angry XD

image

Jiwon feels as if one of the Sechs Kies members were getting stolen away…

Unfortunately, rules are rules. The one who gets a correct answer wins a crystal necklace. Jiwon is in charge of them, so he picks a crystal necklace for Heechul. But did you see? He was going to pick the yellow necklace at first and then changed his mind to the red one! Coincidentally, yellow is the official color of Sechs Kies, huh? And where did the yellow one go to?

image

There it is! The scene was cut out, but he gave it to the Jekki fanIt’s those little actions that let people know that he truly adores his fans T_T Jiwon, where is the end of your charm?

And I’ll end with an excerpt from that famous handwritten letter Jiwon wrote for his fans who were waiting for him outside his house every day. The very letter that first proved his tsundere-ness…

image

I bet my mother knows too, but sometimes–more than just once or twice–I can’t fall asleep at the thought of you. I feel so worried about you. Won’t they be cold? Or what if they are hungry? Where will they sleep? Whenever I have these questions in my head, I can’t sleep, no matter how tired I am…

So I wish you would understand me and forgive me! Don’t just think that you guys feel fine because I am really concerned about you. Don’t you think that if you stop suffering outside and spend more time with your parents, your parents would also like us more? Oh, yeah! And about my cold behaviors toward you! I hope you understand that they don’t come from the heart. If you guys don’t understand me, then “who would?”

“Love you”…..
