A few months later…
During this time, since I saved Ji Won’s life, he began to trust me more and
confided in me with everything. I was like his new best friend. SechsKies continued
traveling to many places and recruited new members. More war between SechsKies and
Black Dragons broke out. Many businesses were shut down and more members were killed
from both sides. All the blood shed and fighting was getting to me but I held on. All
the members of SechsKies accepted me but sometimes I overhear them whisper that I’m
gay. I didn’t care as long as I had Ji Won.
April 30, 1999
Finally, after many days of hard work, SechsKies finally got a day of rest. The
leaders always hang out together but Ji Won always included me. We were at this fancy
restaurant and were all having a good time. Jae Duc was telling us funny jokes. He
stopped in the middle of a joke as he saw the Black Dragon leaders enter the
Tension was felt by everyone. The Black Dragons sat down across from us. Ji Won and
Tae Won were giving each other glares. Underneath the tables, we pulled out our guns.
I knew the Black Dragons were doing the same. We didn’t know which side fired the
first shot but before we knew it, bullets were flying everywhere.
Ji Won covered me as we ran out of the restaurant safely. We met up with the other 5
Kies in a dark alley. The Black Dragons were still chasing us.
“Damn it hyung! What should we do?” asked Jae Jin.
“Kill them all!” shouted Ji Won.
“There are too many,” Ji Yong shouted back. “Let’s just hide out in this
motel.” We all ran and hid in this cheap motel’s restaurant. The Black Dragons
lost us and continued searching.
“I don’t believe this!” said Ji Won furiously. “I, Matthew Eun, of SechsKies
have to hide down here in this cockroach motel like I’m a dog or something!”
“Calm down,” I said to him gently, patting his back. “It’s not so bad.”
“Yeah hyung,” said Sung Hoon. “It’s only for one night. Besides, we’ll make
them pay for this.”
All of us looked around. There was only one bed. I could tell none of us wanted the
floor because it was disgusting and reeked of something. “I ain’t taking the
floor!” all of us shouted in unison.
“There’s only one bed though,” said Su Won.
“Look on the bright side,” said Jae Duc as he laid out the sheets on the bed.
“At least it’s king size.”
I nodded my head. “It’ll be tight but we’ll all have to try and fit in.”
Soon it was Jae Jin, Jae Duc, Ji Won, me, Sung Hoon, Ji Yong, and Su Won laying down
side by side uncomfortably on the bed. We were laying down one by one and the others
looked at me strangely as I ran to be the next person who laid near Ji Won.
Soon everyone fell asleep except me. I made sure everyone was asleep before I made my
move. I bent over to kiss Ji Won lightly on the lips. Then I laid my head down on his
chest to hear his heart beat. I sighed contentedly.
Then suddenly I felt Ji Won’s leg twitch. Oh no. I knew what he was about to do.
His 360. I placed my entire body on top of his because I didn’t want to get kicked.
As Ji Won did his 360, he kicked everyone except me off the bed. As always when Ji
Won was done, he had a huge smile on his face. Then he held onto me tightly. I was
overwhelmed with happiness.
The others must have been exhausted because none of them woke up except Jae Duc. He
opened his eyes sleepily and said, “Huh?” “You’re dreaming,” I whispered to
him. He nodded his head and went back to sleep. Soon I drifted off to sleep too.
May 1, 1999
Ji Won began to stir. He woke up finding Min Sung holding onto him tightly. Ji Won
widened his eyes and gently unraveled Min Sung’s arms and legs off of him. The guys
already called Min Sung gay and he didn’t want them to think he’s gay too. He sat
up and saw 5 of the SechsKies leaders laying on the floor.
Then Sung Hoon began to wake up. He sat up and looked around. “Gross! How the hell
did I end up down here?” Ji Won shrugged his shoulders. Then Jae Duc woke up.
“Damn, my butt hurts. It feels like someone kicked it last night.” Then one by
one everyone woke up. “P.U.!,” yelled Jae Jin. “This floor stinks!” Everyone
“Sorry you guys,” said Ji Won laughing. “I must have done a 360 and kicked you
“How come you didn’t fall off Min Sung?” asked Ji Yong.
Uh, oh, I thought. “I did,” I answered him. “But I got back up and went to
sleep on the bed again.”
“Really?” asked Su Won. “I didn’t even know. I just went right on
Ji Won began to study Min Sung. It was weird but somehow Ji Won had a feeling that
Min Sung knew he does a 360 in his sleep. ‘But that’s impossible,’ he thought
to himself. ‘Only Mina knows that and why didn’t Min Sung say anything about me
kicking him?’ Ji Won didn’t know what was going on with Min Sung but he knew he
had to find out.
We all got up and ready to leave the room. The coast seemed clear so we walked out
unarmed. Big mistake. There was a n ambush waiting for us. “Disperse!” yelled Ji
Won and we all ran our separate ways. Black Dragons chased after each one of us. I
lost the Black Dragon member that was chasing me but I didn’t want to go back the
hotel room without Ji Won so I turned back to get him.
When I found Ji Won, he was backed up against the wall by a Black Dragon. It was the
leader, Tae Won. He was telling Ji Won to bow down and beg for mercy but Ji Won ended
up spitting in his face. Tae Won got angry and pulled the knife back to stab Ji Won
in his throat. I ran as fast as I could and knocked Tae Won down. He dropped the
knife and fell to the floor with me. As he fell, he used the handled of the knife to
knock Ji Won unconscious. Tae Won got up glaring at me.
“Do you know who you’re messing with?” he asked me angrily.
I glared at him back unflinching. “I’ll make you pay for hurting Ji Won.”
“Oh you must be the gay SechsKies member I’ve heard so much about,” said Tae
Won laughing. “You’re afraid your faggot leader would die leaving you alone?”
That made me really angry. I didn’t care that he called me gay but calling Ji Won a
faggot ticked me off. Since he was distracted, I grabbed the hand he was holding the
sword with, and made him stab himself. He cried out in shock and pain. He pulled
knife out of him. Tae Won pushed me away and cuts me in the knee with his knife. I
fell down and saw him raise the knife above my head. I was going to die.
Then suddenly a voice screamed out, “Gang Rape!”
It made Tae Won run off. I looked over to see who it was. It was Kyung Hee screaming
for the cops. I saw her looking at me sighing and walked away.
“Kyung Hee!” I screamed for her.
Kyung Hee looked at me strangely as she approached me. “Do I know you?”
I nodded my head and motioned for her to come near me. When she did, I whispered in
her ear, “It’s me, Mina.”
“Mina? But you’re a guy!” she yelled back at me.
“Look at me closely.”
When she did, her eyes widened as she grabbed a hold of me. “Mina, it is you!” I
turned her back to face me. “Please help me bring Ji Won back to the hotel.”
Kyung Hee made a face of disgust.
“What are you doing with the SechsKies leader and why are you dressed like a
“I’ll explain later,” I told her. We both put Ji Won’s arms around us as we
carried him back. Along the way we found Sung Hoon unconscious on the ground,
bleeding. I set Ji Won down gently and lifted Sung Hoon up. “Sung Hoon!” I said,
shaking him. He was hurt badly. “Kyung Hee, please do me a favor. You carry Sung
Hoon while I carry Ji Won.”
Kyung Hee looked at me reluctantly but then nodded. I lifted Ji Won onto my back and
carried him back to the Nam Hotel. My leg was still bleeding from the cut and I was
limping. “Mina, can you carry him?” Kyung Hee asked me, concerned. “I’ll be
fine,” I answered her as we made it back.
I took Ji Won back to his room while Kyung Hee took Sung Hoon back to his. I washed
Ji Won’s cuts and nursed his wounds. When he was bandaged, I sat down on the chair
next to his bed.
Then suddenly, I couldn’t breathe. One of my attacks is coming on and I didn’t
have my respirator with me. My heart was aching so painfully that I was gasping in
pain. But then I remembered Ji Won had a respirator. I searched his pockets and sure
enough, there it was. I started pumping it quickly and air entered my lungs.
My vision cleared and I began to breathe easier. Then I put it back into his pocket.
My touch made Ji Won stir. He began to wake up. He looked at me.
“Min Sung?” he asked weakly.
I nodded my head. “Yes, it’s me hyung.”
Ji Won lifted himself up. “Where am I?”
“We’re back at our hotel.”
“Oh,” Ji Won said as he looked at my leg. “What happened to your knee?”
I looked down at it. It was bleeding through my pants. “It’s nothing hyung.
I’ll be okay in a few days.”
“Did Tae Won do this to you?”
I nodded my head.
Ji Won pounded his fist on his desk. “Damn him! I’ll get him back.”
“It’s okay hyung,” I said calming him down.
“By the way,” he asked me suddenly, “how did you end up finding me? Weren’t
you supposed to come back here by yourself?”
His question hit me by surprise. I answered him truthfully. “I came back to look
for you because I was worried you might be in danger.” I saw Ji Won look at me
awkwardly and inched himself away from me. He thinks I’m gay, I thought.
“Uh, thanks for coming back to save me then,” Ji Won said to Min Sung awkwardly.
Min Sung nodded and left his room. Ji Won lets out a sigh. He loved Min Sung as a
friend and definitely nothing more. He didn’t want Min Sung to have any thoughts.
Instinctively Ji Won reached into his pocket to check to see if his respirator was
still there. It was but it was different. Ji Won stared at it with wide eyes. His
once filled respirator was now only half full with air. Someone had been using it.
