    Summary

    “Critics are piranhas,” the previous head chef had said to Seokjin once. “All they want to do is chew you out. It’s what pays their bills. Don’t let them get to you.”

    Well, one sure did get to him.

    At 27, Kim Seokjin was a culinary prodigy, as the youngest ever head chef of one of the finest restaurants in Gangnam. But with increasingly lukewarm food reviews and a boss who was stifling his creativity, Seokjin was getting frustrated. Maybe he should have known that all it was going to take to send him off the deep end was another scathing review. What he could never have known, however, was that the review would come from the handsome, dimpled regular who was full of charm and compliments for the chef - Kim Namjoon.

    Summary

    “I feel like I need to warn you about my family,” Namjoon started, and Jungkook chuckled.

    “What? Are they the kind of people who have family game night every night? Or get everyone those embarrassing matching sweaters and custom tee shirts when you go out in public together that say ‘Kim’s Family Holiday 2020’ with an equally awkward family photo on it from the year before in the previous year’s matching sweaters?”

    “No, they’re just…they're different.”

    Jungkook never thought that being multimillionaires would be the defining characteristic of different.

    Or, Jungkook tries to find his place in Namjoon’s family without sacrificing who he is

    Summary

    Kim Seokjin loves acting. That's what they'll put in his obituary, probably, right after his family details, because that's the only thing that matters about him. That, and that he's gay, and that his temper snapped one time and ruined his entire career before it had a chance to be what he knows it could have become.

    His last chance to prove himself comes in the form of a reality TV show, a Bachelor-style outing that will show he still has the softness to be a romantic lead. And it's embarrassing, and messy, and full of quirky guys and their weird habits and fame-seeking and secret agendas that he doesn't have the energy to deal with. But it's just a job, and Seokjin never turns down a chance when it's offered, and the biggest comfort of playing the starring role on Destined Hearts is that Seokjin knows his own heart will never be destined for anything but the screen.

    Summary

    Jimin drapes himself half in Seokjin’s lap and plays with the hem of his t-shirt, runs his fingers along the skin of his side just above his belt. Seokjin thinks: We shouldn’t be doing this in public. Then he thinks: Doing this in public is exactly what we said we were doing.
