Story[]

Yeongwoong stunned that Doeul knows he likes his brother Maru

Yeongwoong asks Maru if he is trying to be late on his first day of class yet it his brother who enters the room. Attending college together he speaks with Haru how Doeul probably does not remember him after they moved away. Waiting for Maru to arrive at his residence Yeongwoong then asks Doeul who he is with whether it is a limited edition King live DVD set. In response Doeul questions whether Yeongwoong still likes his brother. Yeongwoong's reaction confirms the sentiment and Doeul proceeds to kiss him.[1]

Remembering noticing Doeul at his house

In a recollection Yeongwoong recalls first noticing Doeul when he was back in middle school and came over to Maru's house. When Maru experienced an injury Doeul told Yeongwoong who came to check that he was in room 402. Noticing Yeongwoong's concern for Maru was a factor in Doeul thinking more about him. Doeul was studying when Maru told him he and Yeongwoong were to apply to the same university. Doeul also means to make it obvious how he feels about Yeongwoong, just as obvious as he is around Maru.[2] As Yeongwoong speaks about his perceived affections for Maru he implores Doeul to not say anything. After Yeongwoong is kissed by Doeul he runs away. As Doeul relieves himself Yeongwoong heads to his residence and sees messages from Maru.[3]

Yeongwoong not sharing his thoughts with Maru

On campus Yeongwoong finds he cannot look at Maru who tries to engage in conversation. He insists nothing happened and while Maru does not press further he asks whether Yeongwoong is busy today. By evening Yeongwoong arrives to Maru calling for him. Yeongwoong thinks how the semester has just started but Maru has already made new friends. Arriving at the party underway Yeongwoong meets Yeorgeum who states she is a graduating student while everyone else is a first year student like Maru. Yeoreum details how she saw Maru and introduced the idea of him becoming a celebrity. Yeongwoong finds Maru seating himself beside him and thinks he is so cute.[4]

Hearing that Doeul was not kidding

Walking back together, Yeongwoong is asked by Maru whether he had fun today or was he bored. Arriving at Maru's home Yeongwoong is hesitant to go in. When Maru heads in of his own accord Yeongwoong leaves and by 11.02pm he receives a message from Maru saying thanks and he should come back next time. During the day Yeongwoong waits outside for Maru to get his jacket yet Doeul arrives home. After handing his number Doeul asks if Yeongwoong is concerned that he said something to Maru before stating that he was not kidding last time about liking Yeongwoong.[5]

With Maru busier Yeongwoong asks Doeul to meet him

As Yeongwoong considers Doeul's number he feels Maru is now walking past him and ignoring his messages. Located by Yeoreum who shares Maru may be accepting the offer mentioned last time, Yeongwoong despondently thinks he did not tell him anything. Calling Doeul to meet in the park Yeongwoong then kisses him and they head back to his. As they kiss further Yeongwoong says for Doeul to wait[6] before resuming. With it around 2.25 on the clock Yeongwoong thinks he is going to fall off the bed and cannot keep going yet Doeul answers just a little more, just one hour.[7] Waking up in bed Yeongwoong remembers everything. Doeul takes Yeongwoong's arm and asks why he keeps running away from him. Yeongwoong is concerned at Maru noticing.[8]

Yeongwoong and Maru together at school

It is recalled how in class 3-2 Yeongwoong was introduced as a new student. Maru befriended him and having ice lollies together he heard Yeongwoong's parents had to come here for work all of a sudden. While Maru's parents were busy working at the hospital he had his big brother. At middle school nothing really changed between them, Maru continued to remain close with Yeongwoong and noticed his facial expression.[9] Thanking Yeongwoong for lending him his notes Maru registered his heart palpitations. At their home his mother was concerned at whether it would be too much work for Doeul who desired to run for student council and class president. Their parents then discussed moving to be closer to the hospital. Yeongwoong found about Maru moving since Heeji was preparing a goodbye card for him. Together Yeongwoong and Maru pinky promised to visit one another.

Seeing their behaviour Maru is not in the mood to talk

As Maru thinks how he considered Yeoreum's offer to be polite he then observes Yeongwoong meeting Doeul outside their home.[10] As Yeongwoong speaks about taking responsibility, he and Doeul notice Maru approach. Yeongwoong is apprehensive at what Doeul could reveal, who then raises the matter about Maru not answering calls. While Maru is not talkative then, later he greets Yeongwoong on campus when he is found by him. Before they can discuss yesterday Maru is asked by a colleague whether he done the research she requested he do. While Maru says he will do it when he gets home the student replies no way he better do it right now. Maru is led away but says he will call Yeongwoong later.

Yeongwoong tells Doeul he likes Maru

Receiving a call himself Yeongwoong meets Doeul at the place he used to live in college.[11] While Yeongwoong says he likes Maru and is confused he wants Doeul to accept responsibility for what he done. Doeul does say sorry for the confusion but would like them to meet more. Accepting he will take responsibility Doeul wants Yeongwoong to promise to answer whatever he asks honestly. In class Yeongwoong feels so tired before being reminded of the class trip. Not sure about going he checks anyway to find that Maru has already registered him.[12] Maru asks Doeul whether he is still in contact with Yeongwoong who answers yes.

On a class trip at the beach, thinking how everything is going wrong

Together at the seafront Yeongwoong wants to go back to the hotel in case Maru tries to go into the ocean. Asking how he and his brother got so close, Maru comments it is like Yeongwoong and Doeul are dating. Yeongwoong answers that is not funny and moved to be by himself. Called by Doeul he then feels that conversation could have gone better and how everything is going wrong.[13] By day time Maru finds Yeongwoong and says sorry about yesterday. Concerned he was not answering, Yeongwoong replies he lost his phone. On the bus back Maru and Yeongwoong discuss working on a photography class project together. When Yeongwoong arrives at Maru's he finds Doeul there.[14]
