Meanwhile back in the hotel lobby...
After Sung Hoon and the others gave the new recruits
instructions about the meeting, they went back to
“You think there’s something wrong with
Matthew hyung?” asked Jae Jin.
“Yeah,” said Jae Duc. “Did you see
the way he held the new guy?” They began to
“No, it’s nothing,” answered Sung
“You think maybe Matthew is gay?” asked
“You’re the one who looks gay,”
said Jae Duc, jokingly.
“Shut up!” yelled Ji Yong as he punched
Jae Duc lightly. The others began to laugh.
Then Su Won said, “Could be though. I've never
seen him ‘be’ with a girl before.”
Sung Hoon lets out a sigh.
“Okay, I’ll tell you guys the real deal. But don’t
let this get back to Matthew okay?” They all nodded and
leaned forward to hear the story.
“About 5 years ago, Matthew hyung met this girl named Nam
“Is she a babe?” asked Jae Duc, interrupting. Sung
Hoon gave him a look.
“Yes, Duckie, she’s a babe.”
“Oh, okay,” said Jae Duc.
“Anyway, Matthew knew her before he met me. It turns out
that she was the first person who really ever cared about him
and Matthew fell in love with her. But you know how hyung is.
He could never tell anyone exactly what’ s on his mind or
how he feels. Instead of saying he wants Mina to be his girlfriend,
he said he wants her to be his dongsang...“
“That’s stupid!” yelled Jae Duc, interrupting
“Why did he say that for? She’s a babe!”
“Sh..!” yelled Jae Jin, Ji Yong and Su Won at Jae
Duc. Sung Hoon continued.
“Well, Matthew ended up having this blood ceremony with
her. They scarred each other’s back with their initial.
It looks like a blood tie but I found out later on that it was
his symbol of promised love...“

“Ow.. That must have hurt,” said Jae
Duc as he hugged himself. Jae Jin smacked him on the
head for interrupting again.
“I think they knew each other for a year before
they met me. At first I thought Mina was cute, but
by the way Matthew acts, I can tell she was off limits.
See, Mina had this heart condition where air would
suddenly be closed off and she wouldn’t be able
to breathe. The only way to get air in was by this
“The one hyung always carry around?” asked
“Yes Duckie,” said Sung Hoon, rolling
“Anyway, it was either that or mouth to mouth
resuscitation. Once, I was walking along the shores
with her and Matthew went collecting shells for Mina.
One of her attacks came. I freaked out, but I knew
what to do. I laid her down and I was about to give
her CPR but Matthew ran like the speed of light and
knocked me into the ocean to give her CPR.”
The others started laughing.
“Dang, ain’t he a Romeo?” said Jae
Duc, laughing. Sung Hoon smiled.
“He loves Mina and didn’t want any other
guy touching her. I mean, during school, if any guy
talks about wanting to date her, Matthew made sure
he didn’t. Oh yeah, Matthew hyung hasn’t
always been Matthew. His real name is Ji Won. The
‘M’ scar on his back stands for Mina,
The others opened their mouths in shock. They never
knew Ji Won had been this much in love before.
“How romantic,” whispered Jae Duc.
“Shut up hyung,” said Ji Yong.
“Okay, okay,” said Jae Duc, blocking himself
from Jae Jin’s hand. Sung Hoon resumed talking.
“If there are no more interruptions, then I’ll
continue.” He paused for a second and then continued.
“The day before Matthew and I made it to Korea,
he and Mina were supposed to get married. Matthew
didn’t like his dad and there was this feud
in their family on who gets the grandpa’s inheritance.
Matthew got it of course, and he took it all and left
Hawaii. He took me and he was planning on taking Mina
too. When he went to her house, his uncle’s
men were guarding the place and he couldn’t
take her. He ended up leaving Hawaii without saying
goodbye to Mina.”
All of them remained silent. Then Su Won spoke.
“Last year hyung sent me out to get some news on Nam Mina.
She had died drowning.” Sung Hoon nodded.
“Yeah but Matthew and I think she committed suicide. He
think it’s because Mina can’t handle living with her
stepmom, who was always abusing her. If you ask me, I think Mina
committed suicide because Matthew left her without any reason.
I think hyung thinks that too but he won’t say it. I think
he blames himself for her death and since then he hasn’t
been the same. He used to be nicer and not this touchy. Also that’s
why he’s never been with another girl. I mean, we see him
flirt with other girls but none of us actually see him ‘be’
with another girl right?” The others nodded in agreement.
Sung Hoon continued.
“About this new boy today. I think Matthew is losing it.
He probably thinks when he sees the boy he sees...“ Sung
Hoon stopped talking as he looked up. He finished his sentence
“...See you later!” and he ran off.

The others looked up surprised. Jae Jin smacked Jae
Duc on his head.
“What?” asked Jae Duc.
“I didn’t interrupt!”
“It’s not Duckie’s fault,”
said Ji Yong.
“Look.” Ji Yong pointed to where Sung
Hoon ran off too.
“Aigo,” said Jae Jin.
“It’s that same waitress babe.”
“See?” said Jae Duc.
“It’s because of a girl, not me. You hit
me by mistake.”
“No, it’s not a mistake. I still wanna
smack your head because it makes this cool hollow
sound,” replied Jae Jin as he smacked Jae Duc
on his head again.
“So, wanna go out sometime?” Sung Hoon
asked Kyung Hee, leaning near her. She rolled her
eyes at him. She answered flatly, “No”
and began to leave. Sung Hoon held onto her arm.
“Come on babe. Xmas is next month and don’t
be a scrooge.” Then suddenly, Kyung Hee gave
him a seductive smile.
“I guess. How about we go out on November 31st
then?” Sung Hoon smiled back sexily.
“It’s a date then,” he answered,
letting her go. The other 4 walked up to him.
“How did it go Mickey?” asked Su Won.
“Hey, hey, what can I say?” answered Sung
“I’m the man!” Jae Jin gave him
“Alright!” yelled Jae Duc.
“When are you two going out?”
“November 31st,” answered Sung Hoon.
“Uh, Mickey,” said Ji Yong.
“What's up Ji Yong?” said Sung Hoon.
“November doesn’t have a 31st.”
“What?” asked Sung Hoon, surprised. He
looked at the calendar. November ends on the 30th.
He looked around but Kyung Hee had already left. He
started cursing while the others try to hold back
November 23, 1998
“This meeting of Sechskies is now in session,”
announced Ji Won to the main members of the group
along with the new recruits. His voice got their attention
and they quickly focused their attention on Ji Won.
Ji Won scanned to see if Min Sung was there. He was.
Ji Won gave a little smile to him. He didn’t
know why but when he looks at Min Sung his mind would
replace Min Sung’s face with Mina’s.
“So any new business?” he asked the members.
“Yes,” answered Jae Jin.
“The Black Dragons killed some of our members and took away
some of our businesses.”
“Damn it!” yelled Ji Won as he pounded his fist on
“We’ll just have to see that this Black Dragon matter
be resolved. Mickey, Ji Yong, Su Won and the two new recruits
deal with the businesses. Jae Jin, Jae Duc and Min Sung will come
with me.” Everyone looked at Ji Won strangely. Sung Hoon
“Uh, hyung. You want to take Min Sung along?” Ji Won
glared at him.
“Yeah. Anyone here have any objections?” No one answered.
“Meeting adjourned,” announced Ji Won and everyone
went to work.
