Forgot to post yesterday!! (O∆O) I went out to have some KBBQ with a friend I haven’t seen for a while and when I came back I watched the first episode of Missing Nine and fell asleep…

Anyways, continued with my essay today and worked on my sketchbook. I have to think of ideas for my textiles outcome…

re·al·i·za·tion

noun

The moment of sudden clarity when feelings are finally recognized, or are made aware for the first time.

It hit you on a Wednesday evening while you were at the gym as per usual. School was killing you, but you were determined to stick with your workout schedule, even if it meant sleeping an hour less or watching one less episode of your current favorite kdrama. Just exactly why were you so passionate about working out?

Ding!

[7:33PM] Jeon: If you’re not here in 5 minutes then YOU owe ME all you can eat KBBQ. 

Ding! 

[7:33PM] Jeon: AND ice cream.

It was as simple as that – you just couldn’t, wouldn’t, lose this bet with Jeon Jungkook.

Post birthday treat for my cousin. I wasn’t able to attend her party and since she gave me a freelance project and recommended me, I decided to give her a treat. We both love korean food and the last time we planned on eating kbbq it was a fail since it was raining that day and there was a long queue. For 495php it already includes unlimited pork and beef and the buffet. This was in Matgalne located in Makati.

Series: Soulmate au bts and svt
Member: Rapmon (bts)
Prompt: Red strings of fate
Find the tag for this series here: x

  • Namjoon could only see his own red string of fate 
  • Tbh he was always fascinated by it,, we all know Namjoon is a smart guy and definitely a bit of a thinker 
  • Just as much as he thinks about other things, he finds himself gazing at his red string of fate and thinking about it a lot too
  • He doesn’t really think about it in public much,,, it’s mostly in his studio when he’s resting on the couch, fingers idly twirling it around 
  • He’s always wondered who sits on the other side,,, what would you look like? How would your eyes look when you saw him for the first time? Were you eager to meet him too? What did your laugh sound like? 
  • He wanted to know everything about you and promised himself that when he met you he was gonna pay attention to all the little details about you,, 
  • But for now, he didn’t know you and he was left to wonder
  • Sometimes his thoughts got deep, he thought long about how right on the end of this tiny little red string was person made just for him
  • How he didn’t even know you, but he knew there was this little place in his heart that belonged to you, and how it longed to have you finally arrive and fill it up 
  • He didn’t feel empty or longing most of the time,, when he was with his members he felt alive and full of life and laughter
  • And when he was on stage the fans were enough to fill him up and soothe his soul into forgetting about you for a few hours 
  • But on nights where he found his eyes wandering to the little knot on his pinky
  • Or when he was writing a song about a love he had yet to find,,
  • The feelings hit him full force and he finds himself missing you 
  • But !! he has his members to rely on,, they know he thinks about you a lot and gets really melancholic about it and they remind him that soulmates always come at just the right time
  • They’re there to pat his back and remind him that you’ll be there when you guys are ready to meet,, fate knows what it’s doing it’s done it billions of times in the past
  • It always gives him strength to hear this and remember that you two will meet when the time comes
  • He sends you silent wishes to stay strong and wait just a while longer, he’s sure he’ll see you soon
  • And of course you can’t hear this but,,, sometimes you get little bursts of affection and hope and you can’t help but glance at the string with a smile hehe 
  • You were a pretty busy bee yourself!! I mean heck you weren’t writing songs or going on sold out world tours but you had plenty keeping you busy 
  • For one, you could see everyone’s strings,,, so lots of your friends would eagerly come to you asking about theirs
  • Everyone had different methods for finding their soulmates,, but the red string was definitely a more popular one
  • You knew some people who had it but couldn’t see it and they came to you for reassurance that yes, they had one, and yes, you were certain their soulmate would find them 
  • But outside of that, you had a lot of other things going on??? 
  • You were finishing up your last year of college and your internship was offering you a job that would take you around the world 
  • Not forever, just for around a year to train you for a better position back at headquarters in Korea, where you were currently living and studying 
  • On your last night there, your friends and you had a big night planned out
  • You were gonna catch a movie, go to a club, get some kbbq, spend all night before your flight chatting, all sorts of fun stuff
  • You had a lot of fun!! Nothing beats watching corny movies and dancing with your best friends 
  • It was, however, when you guys were reaching the bbq place that your string began to feel tight
  • You tried not to pay attention to it, it had happened a few times before,, 
  • It just meant your soulmate was getting closer, not necessarily that you were about to meet 
  • Except this time it meant you were about to meet lmao whoops
  • The minute you walked into the nearly empty restaurant, your string lost its slack and began to tingle against your skin
  • And you were like ??? and your friends were like “what what is it” but you ignored them as you followed the string’s trail
  • Only to see two brown eyes staring right back at you and you immediately felt a wave of emotions crash down on you 
  • A feeling of warmth surged through your chest as your heart seemed to swell up and speed up, nerves immediately rising in your stomach and threatening to squeeze the theater popcorn back up as your cheeks heated up
  • Thoughts whipped through your mind,, you recognized him from everywhere of course who didn’t know Kim Namjoon???
  • What if he didn’t want to date a non idol though?? What if he didn’t like you??? What if you weren’t at all what he was expecting and now he was disappointed??
  • But then he smiled
  • And just like that, all your anxiety and doubt was washed away in a mere second
  • Because you could already see the love in his eyes, and you could feel it filling your own as your heart calmed down and settled into a soft thrumming, a tender feeling wrapping around it as it seemed to say “Oh yeah, I know this soul, this is okay, everything is going to be okay”
  • He briefly muttered something to Jin sitting next to him before standing up and walking over to you, sticking one hand out as his dimples flashed 
  • You introduced yourselves, and he invited you and your friends to join them
  • Suga may or may not have been in the background slipping the owner some cash to have him shut the curtains and keep anyone else from coming inside lmao I mean what 
  • You naturally sit down next to Rapmonnie and as the groups begin to socialize (tho your friends are a little awkward cause wtf bts wtfff-)-
  • And before Namjoon can say anything, you blurt out “I’m really sorry, I know we just met, but I have bad news” 
  • He looks afraid for a minute because his mind immediately flashed to the fact that he knew a lot of people started dating someone else and didn’t want to get together with their soulmates
  • And he goes “Are you dating?” and you’re like “what oh OH NO NO NOT THAT KIND OF BAD” 
  • He looks visibly relieved and asks what is it 
  • You look a little sheepish and go “I’m leaving the country tomorrow,,, it’s just for a year but,,, yeah,,,”
  • Instead of getting upset or angry (though you can see the disappointment in his eyes and the way his face falls a bit) he asks you why
  • You explain how your job was going to take you all over the world to train you so you would have all kinds of experience and meet all sorts of people to make connections for the company with
  • He asked where you were going and you started to list off a few of the places you could remember off the top of your head 
  • He grabs your hand with a smile and says “That’s really great, I know I just met you but I’m really proud of you”
  • You feel your heart m e l t at how sweet and understanding he’s being but you go “Are you okay with it? I know we just met and it’s really inconvenient that I’m jetting off right away, I’m so so sorry,,”
  • And he shakes his head and goes “Don’t be sorry, of course I’m okay with it. Fate brought us together now because it wants you to have someone to come home to in a year. We can get to know each other over the phone and be able to treasure our time together when we meet again that much more” 
  • A smile dances onto your face and you squeeze his hand and mutter a soft thank you 
  • And you guys just gaze into each other’s eyes for a minute, sharing this really special moment 
  • But then the food comes and you guys rush to get on it on the grill and then into your mouths before your friends can eat it all lmao
  • You guys stay at the kbbq for a really long time so that you and Namjoon can have time together before your flight in the morning
  • It’s just after one in the morning before you leave, being sure to exchange numbers and a very long hug before saying goodbye to Namjoon and leaving to spend the night with your friends
  • You’re not gonna lie,, leaving for a year was hard enough as it was before you knew you were gonna have to say goodbye to your soulmate 
  • But when you get a text that says “Have a safe flight, I’ll be waiting with open arms once you return” you feel the weight on your shoulders lift somewhat
  • So you take a deep breath and lean back in your seat and let the plane take you away on your next adventure 
  • Honestly,,, the next year is a lot of fun for you
  • Yes you miss Namjoon and your friends and you make time to text them as much as possible,, but you’re meeting so many new people and seeing so many amazing things and learning so much
  • You can feel yourself growing as a person and your company is constantly praising you for making so many helpful connections for them and doing so well all around the world 
  • From America to Chile to Norway to Italy to Thailand to Egypt,,, you see it all
  • And Namjoon is asking you for pictures and selfies all the while lmao
  • On nights where jet lag hits you hard, he’s there to text you whenever he has free time
  • And it’s these moments where you guys grow close,,, the moon already high in the sky for you and the glare of your phone making you squint
  • But the messages that appear on the screen make you grin and giggle softly into your pillow, feeling like you were wrapped up in your own little world 
  • When the plane touches back down in Korea a year after your departure, he’s waiting outside the airport in a private car 
  • The moment you step inside he’s apologizing because he wishes he could’ve gone inside to greet you but his manager didn’t think it was a good idea-
  • You shut him up by tugging him close and kissing the breath out of him though
  • And you pull away and he can see your eyes twinkling with absolute happiness and he feels his heart skip like three beats as he smiles down at you 
  • “I don’t care that you couldn’t come inside, I’ve just wanted to do that for the past year now”
  • His eyes search your expression for a moment before his smile widens and he presses his lips to yours again
  • Just like that, the two of you are officially dating 
  • Namjoon was really quick to integrate you into his everyday life tbh 
  • He sent you flowers on your first day at your office, he invited you over whenever he was working in the studio and you had a day off, he requested Friday nights off so he could take you out on dates,,,
  • True to his promise to himself, he was very very observant and noticed all the little details about you 
  • Honestly it made you feel so loved that he did that??? He wanted to show you he cared enough to know you from the top of your head to the tips of your toes
  • His locksceen is a photo that you sent to him while on your trip standing in front of the Templo de Diana in Portugal 
  • His homescreen is the first selfie you guys took together, all smiles and heart eyes at each other as you stood in front of the Han River 
  • His desktop is a photo of you guys when you went on your first trip together and spent the night on Jeju island 
  • He has a photo of the two on his desk AND YOU GET IT RIGHT YOU’RE EVERYWHERE OKAY
  • He’s just??? So happy to have you in his life
  • Like he gets it now. He gets love in a way he never thought possible because you’re,,, well you’re it for him
  • You’re the end-game, you’re the future, you’re this other part of him he knew he needed but didn’t know how bad until it appeared 
  • His love songs have so much more depth and meaning now, and all of it is because of you
  • He really likes to hold you close and night time and just whisper about how much you mean to him 
  • He tells you about how he always used to philosophize about his string and wonder about you 
  • He tells you how he longed for you at night when he was wrapped up in his studio because he knew you were gonna be amazing
  • And he tells you that you honestly passed all his expectations and you can just feel yourself getting emotional because you know that he means all of it 110%
  • You can tell about much he loves you by the way he looks at you at night time, his eyes sometimes glassy as he thinks about how much you mean to him
  • You guys are just,,, a really sweet couple okay
  • You often go back to the kbbq place together lmao it’s like your special date spot 
  • It’s just??? Hella sentimental to you guys like that’s where y’all met your forever person how can it not be special,,
  • And the owners are a soulmate couple themselves and they’re always gushing over how cute the two of you are and how happy they are that their restaurant united the two of you lmao 
  • Rapmon just takes your hand and gives them that award-winning dimpled smile and thanks them for opening up the place, because without it he wouldn’t have you
  • The owner’s wife: oh my, you must two must love each other so much !!
  • Namjoon: I love them more than I’ve ever loved anything in my life haha

  • Namjoon: But it’s cute when you blush
  • You: Okay you’re hanging out with Jin and Jhope too much Quit
  • He’s just so damn grateful he met you,, treasure this man forever and ever  
KBBQ Owner!Hoshi

A/N: This might be a new AU I’m starting idk but I got this idea from an interview where the members told the interviewer what jobs they’d do if they weren’t an idol. Maybe this might turn into a Odd Jobs!Seventeen??

  • Ok remember that interview when Soonyoung said he’d be a Korean BBQ owner if he wasn’t an idol? 
  • Bc I do
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE THOUGH???
  • Quit his previous job and decided to open his business on a whim
  • “Don’t worry, guys, I can feel it in my bones!”
  • Proceeds to use every single penny in his bank account to open up a Korean BBQ shop
  • It’s a humble shop just on a corner of a street
  • It’s the traditional type; one with the open entrance and where you can smell the scent of beef grilling over a griller from miles away
  • Also one where people get drunk and have drunken fights all the time but we’ll get to that later ;)
  • Anyways
  • The customers like him a lot bc he’s so nice and friendly and so fun to be around and has such a nice face to look at tbh
  • Also because Soonyoung likes to impulsively treat the whole restaurant to a free round of beer on a Friday night high at 10:10
  • “THE NEXT ROUND OF BEER IS ON THE HOUSE”
  • *cue everyone cheering*
  • Cries over his bank account the next morning lol
  • But they like him because he’d be that guy who sites next to a customer on the booth and listens as they drunkenly ramble and cry
  • ^then proceeds to call a taxi to get the customer home safely when they’re done awww
  • And tbh his business is running mostly thanks to that one guy (Seokmin??) who always comes after dark and orders by randomly shouting “PORK BELLY,” out of nowhere while throwing his hands up
  • It’s a sight to behold
  • Basically Seokmin is Soonyoung’s loyal patron now
  • Honestly if it wasn’t for Seokmin, Soonyoung would’ve been broke a long time ago
  • Soonyoung hangs around Seokmin whenever he’s in the shop, neglecting his duties
  • They’d joke around a lot and they like being lOUD
  • Sometimes Soonyoung forgets he’s not a customer lmao
  • Soonyoung does all the work; cashier, waitress, everything.
  • Even though, he never complains bc he actually enjoys running his business
  • He never told anyone how exhausted he always feels despite his easy-going demeanor
  • How he always stay late, serving then cleaning up the shop by himself at wee hours into the morning
  • How he sometimes struggles to pay the bills
  • And how he sometimes wishes he has a someone by his side to support him
  • SOMEONE PROTEC HIM T^T
  • BUT THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN, READER
  • So you’re actually one of his good friends
  • And one day you had enough bc a literal child is actually running a business??
  • Someone needs to be the responsible one in here
  • So one day you came up to him at the cashier and said
  • “Soonyoung, I had enough of watching you working yourself to the ground and treating people beer when you obviously can’t afford it >:( Move out of the way.”
  • And you literally shoved him aside and took his position on the cashier stool as The Cashier™
  • On one side he was offended bc you literally just dethroned him but at the same time he felt Blessed
  • Bc you literally just dropped everything to help him in the shop??
  • And that’s the story on how you became his manager
  • You’re basically the brake Soonyoung needed
  • You help him stop from blowing the budget
  • You take care of the cash book, weekly expenditures and how much Soonyoung spends treating people to free beers
  • The customers were disappointed bc they’re getting free beers no more but thought you guys look cute together lmao
  • You could say you guys bicker like an old married couple??
  • “Soonyoung, that beef is for the customer.”
  • “Buh mm hngghry.”
  • “Please, chew before you talk.”
  • You suspect some of the customers came just for the show but they live for it tbh
  • But there were days when you both just let loose
  • “Y/N, doesn’t these samgyeopsal look like Minghao’s hair??”
  • “IT DOES!!!”
  • And you both laughed so hard that it made the drunk customers really confused???
  • Bc they’re the ones supposed to be drunk?? Not you two
  • It was inevitable that you eventually became close friends with Seokmin, too
  • Like, it’s so amusing to watch them do their dumb s***
  • You don’t need a TV or anything; they’re entertaining enough
  • And you don’t think you had ever laughed so much in your life until now?? And you just feel so happy at where you are now despite the struggle??
  • You admit to yourself that being with Kwon Soonyoung made you feel the happiest you’ve ever been in your life
  • With his tenacious energy and passion plus that sMILE you just can’t help but have a little crush on him
  • But you kept those thoughts to yourself
  • Bc you’ve seen how he already had his plate full with all his responsibilities
  • You don’t want to burden him :(
  • Little did you know…
  • Soonyoung felt like a huge weight was lifted off his shoulders when you swooped in like the hero that you are
  • You’re literally his savior??
  • You decided to drop everything to come and help him in the shop and he had never had anybody do such selfless thing for him
  • And to say he was grateful was an understatement
  • Because he would literally give you the world
  • But he couldn’t afford the world
  • So he gave you the next best thing that he has
  • His heart
  • fU**
  • From the first day that you literally kicked him out of his stool until now, his heart just grew larger and larger for you
  • And sometimes he just watches you with a fond smile as you serve customers bc ‘wow, I’m so lucky.’
  • Bc what did he ever do to deserve such a sweet and selfless person as you???
  • At this point, everybody who goes there ship you guys lol
  • And some of the customers would flirt with you just to see Soonyoung get riled up
  • And honestly you let it happen bc frustrated Soonyoung is cute Soonyoung
  • “YAH! STOP FLIRTING ON MY MANAGER!”
  • “I’ll shove this coal up your ass so high and make sure that gochunjang isn’t going to be the only thing burning in there.”
  • And they knew that’s where they had to stop bc he’s not called Kwon Fire for no reason
  • But ofc they know he’s just joking and everything’s for good fun
  • Well, at least it was, until one night
  • Remember when I told you that drunken fights sometimes happen in the shop?
  • That night, a group of men were having a drink after a long day at work
  • It’s pretty normal for people to get drunk on a Friday night like this
  • So you were just doing your job, tending to the customers when one of the men started flirting with you
  • Now, you’re okay if it’s just for laughs, but he seemed adamant about asking you out
  • And you started to feel very uncomfortable and as if he sensed your distress, Soonyoung came out of the kitchen
  • And imagine his surprise when he saw this punk trying to forcefully hit on you when you’re obviously not interested and bothered
  • So he went all Kwon Fire on the guy
  • “What do you think you’re doing?!”
  • “Asking what such a pretty thing doing in a place like this.” the man slurred, gesturing towards you
  • Sonyoung’s heart grew a little heavy as if agreeing; ‘they deserve so much more than this tiny cramped up place.’
  • “You better stay away. Before you regret it.”
  • “Why should I?” the guy slurred
  • “Because they’re mine.” Soonyoung glared
  • And you guessed when someone hadn’t had proper sleep in a week they would look pretty scary when angered so that’s why the guy looked like he might’ve peed in his pants in front of everyone the next second if he hadn’t scurry our of the shop before Soonyoung do that himself
  • It was over, but you were still pretty shook bc did he really just?? 
  • Your heart broke a little thinking that it might just be an act
  • When you met his eyes, you’re ready to compliment on his acting but he caught you off-guard by taking your hands into his large ones
  • “What I said earlier? It was all true. I care about you. I like you, a lot. And I don’t care if you don’t like me back because I understand that I’m not–”
  • You cut him off with a hug and were like “I like you a lot, too.”
  • And Soonyoung’s speechless bc
  • W hat. They like me back!
  • And neither of you made any move that would indicate that you’d break the hug anytime soon
  • And the customers were really stunned
  • Bc whoop, the grill isn’t the only thing getting hot in here, let’s  l e a v e
  • You both didn’t even realize the customers started leaving bc you’re too wrapped up in each other’s embrace
  • And a soft trot music from the cd shop across the street played in the background
  • And you guys were tired and sweaty and you both smelled like grilled meat but you don’t mind
  • And Soonyoung swore to himself he’d make you the happiest person in the whole wide world
  • Even though he felt as if he did not have much thing to offer
  • But you wouldn’t trade it for the world
  • Because you know
  • Here, in the humble corner barbeque shop, struggling to make ends meet at times
  • But this is where you belong
