The easiest region to access thanks to the port city of Jawan, Nssylai is possibly the most welcoming for new travelers. There are fewer rain forests, more open space, beautiful winding rivers, and supposedly less dangers. If you do seek adventure though, the Craiss Caverns and Idalani Waterfalls are a sight to behold. For relaxation or to get in touch with your spiritual side, head out to Nu'san Temple.

“Wow, this place is pretty nice.”

Chan-ho surveyed the room around him with wide eyes, his lips parted in surprise. Of course, it didn’t stop him from kicking his shoes off unceremoniously on the doormat, and dumping his bag of snacks onto the floor.

Yo-han, watching him from the door to the kitchen, frowned. “Look,” he said, “did you need something?”

Chan-ho grinned at him. “You sound just like Jae right now,” he said. When Yo-han’s expression didn’t lift, he pouted. “Come on, hyung. I brought snacks!”




I'm only honest when it rains.
If I time it right, the thunder breaks
When I open my mouth.
I want to love you but I don't know how.

“Yeah, yeah.” Yo-han sighed, but one corner of his mouth quirked up, and he turned back to the kitchen to grab a couple of beers from the fridge. Wordlessly, he held one out over his shoulder, and felt the brush of Chan-ho’s fingers as Chan-ho took it from him.

He didn’t even have time to offer the bottle opener. Chan-ho had picked up a spoon from the cup next to the sink, and popped the lid off with practiced ease. It fell clattering onto the countertop, wobbling for a moment before settling flat.

“Hey,” said Yo-han. “Don’t make a mess in someone else’s house.”

Chan-ho made a face. “You’re different when it’s your house, aren’t you? It’s one bottlecap,” he said. “Don’t be stingy.” Still, he picked it up, flipping it with his thumb as if it were a coin. Yo-han watched him catch it, once, twice, three times. Always the same place on his palm, dead center. He could see the places where the edges dug into the skin.

Well. Chan-ho had always been good with his hands.

“So,” said Yo-han, leaning the small of his back against the edge of the counter. “What’s the occasion?”

Chan-ho caught the bottle cap and glanced at him, blinking in surprise. “Hmm? I don’t know what you mean,” he said. Feigned, the way he was on stage sometimes. Yo-han knew it, not that the knowledge pleased him.

“But man,” Chan-ho was saying. “It must be nice having a whole apartment to yourself. I’m still living at the dorms… Did I tell you about the mold that’s growing on the back wall?”

For a moment, Yo-han said nothing, crossing his arms and studying Chan-ho’s face. Chan-ho’s eyes stayed fixed on the bottle cap, the line of his mouth curved in a smile that was almost absent-minded, as if he wasn’t even aware of what he was doing. Whatever it was, he wasn’t going to talk about it. And Yo-han wasn’t the type to pry.

“Yeah,” Yo-han said. “Who lost the bet this time?”

“Jae and Hyun-jin hyung. Well, actually, it was Jae and TK, but Hyun-jin hyung said he’d trade. I don’t think he’s stopped sleeping next to that wall since the mold started, actually.” Chan-ho tossed the bottle cap into the trash. “What about you? How’s everyone doing? Do any of you still live together?”

Yo-han shrugged. “Yeo-reum and Dae-hyun are sharing an apartment right now, but I’m pretty sure Dae-hyun’s just using Yeo-reum as a placeholder until he can get his brother to come up with him.”

For a brief moment, he recalled the night Ha-jun introduced Dong-hyun to them. That was what was so familiar about this, he realized. Chan-ho had had a similar look about him for a few days after he’d hooked up with Dong-hyun. As far as Yo-han knew, the two of them hadn’t spoken after that.

Chan-ho’s expression faltered for a moment. He must have been remembering it too. He went still, eyes fixed on a point off to the side, near the floor.

“I… slept with Young-soo,” he said.

Ah. There it was. Yo-han twisted the cap off his own bottle and took a draught. “So, you came here to brag?” he said, arching his brows. He thought about what he could remember of Young-soo, from the times they'd run into each other, and from what he'd seen of KUNA together on TV. Chan-ho mentioned him often. They were same-age friends, and Yo-han remembered sharp eyes, a deeper more guttural tone than Chan-ho's when he rapped in their songs.

Chan-ho laughed, though there was a forced quality to it. “No,” he said.

“Then what? You wanted to screw me to get the taste of him out of your mouth?” Yo-han was being deliberately obtuse. He knew that wasn’t why Chan-ho was here. It would have been easier if it was. Sex was easy. He wasn’t cut out for this, whatever this was.

“Tempting, but,” said Chan-ho, tapping a finger to his bottom lip, “I think I’ll pass today. My ass is still sore.”

“See? You did come to brag,” said Yo-han.

“I came to get drunk.” Chan-ho set his bottle on the counter. Sometime during their short conversation, he’d managed to empty it. He brushed past Yo-han to open the fridge, reaching in for another. “And to get away from my members for a while. I think a couple of them know, and it was getting kind of old, being stared at all the time.”

Yo-han snorted. “If you didn’t want to be stared at, you shouldn’t have become an idol.”

“Come on, you know that’s not what I mean,” Chan-ho said.

“Alright. So you slept with Young-soo. And?” Yo-han shifted to face Chan-ho, but Chan-ho was still avoiding his gaze. Yo-han couldn’t tell what he was thinking. One of the cardinal rules was that you didn’t sleep with your own members, because there was almost no way that could end well. “Did you mean to do it?”

“No. Though I guess it doesn’t mean anything. I wasn’t drunk, and you can’t…” Chan-ho thumbed the neck of the bottle. “You can’t really sleep with someone by accident.”

“Maybe if they were wearing a mask,” Yo-han said.

“Maybe.”

Neither of them said anything after that. The mood had taken a distinctly awkward turn. Yo-han finished his beer, then opened a cabinet, pulling out a bottle labelled with Chinese script. “Come on,” he said, walking out of the kitchen and into the living room. “If we’re going to get drunk, we might as well do it sitting down.”
