From a family who are mostly composed of Alphas yet Dojin disagrees with the assessment that such a family is incredible because of that. He is also the lead singer in a band which is his current occupation. Attending a friend's party he would later contemplate this as a bad choice because Omegas were also invited to that party. Dojin saw his friend, the one who hosted the party, debating with Hyesung that he looked like an Omega. He thought that his friend was pathetic for being unable to differentiate pheromones like he can. Dojin later came across Hyesung in the comfort room and he smelled him. Disgusted, Park released his own pheromones to counteract Hyesung's. Dojin does not feel what he sees as a heat cycle and adds what Hyesung is experiencing is his problem. Nevertheless, he pulls Hyesung away when he is approaching other guests and takes him home out of concern to rest.

Omega[]

They can have an Alpha's child, regardless of gender.

Alpha[]

Can impregnate Omegas and release pheromones that attract them.

Beta[]

Irregular, unlike Alphas or Omegas and they do not emit or feel pheromones; average people.

Pheromones[]

The unique fragrance of Alphas and Omegas.

Heat Cycle[]

An Omega will give off pheromones that attract Alphas during this time.

The solution for him is an Alpha-pheromone infused perfume, and Dojin comes across Hyesung spraying himself with it in the restroom. As Hyesung is overcome with dizziness, Dojin steadies him and asks if he is going into heat.[4] With that not subsiding, Dojin takes Hyesung back to his where the latter remains adamant that he is an Alpha.[5] As Dojin composes music Kim awakens and realizes he is over at someone's house.[6]
