Sehun is a new model fumbling his way into the cutthroat, corrupted Entertainment Industry. Luckily, Jongin, a famous photographer, is there to guide him―but at what cost? Why does it feel like Jongin will be the one to taint him, instead?
You know what they say: "It's those closest to you that will ruin you best."

"I'm a model, not a star."
"I didn't say you were," Jongin answers back easily. "But you know what's the one thing they have in common?"
"It's their ability to be seductive―to charm and captivate their audiences. And you better learn how to do it soon if you want to get anywhere in the modeling world."
"I..." Sehun trails off, looking at his feet. He doesn't know the first thing about being seductive. He couldn't even attend high school back then―too busy working multiple jobs to support his family―let alone have the free time to talk to other people and know how to seduce them.
"You were a when I took you that night, weren't you," Jongin states bluntly, and Sehun squeezes his eyes shut, trying and failing to stop the blush from rising up his face.
Sehun makes a small, pathetic noise at the back of his throat when he feels a palm brushing at his cheek, stroking him gently.
"Hey, it's fine," Jongin murmurs as Sehun timidly opens his eyes. "It's never too late to learn."
The other nods. "I'm willing to give you, ah. Private lessons, if you'd like."
Sehun brings faltering eyes up at the older man, biting his lip.
"You need this job, don't you?"
"I do..." Sehun answers, a lost, defeated sound.
"So..." Sehun drops his gaze, gulping and steeling himself before bringing shaky, but determined eyes up at him. "Please teach me, Jongin."
The older man chuckles, a low, deep sound that sends shivers down Sehun's spine. "Good boy."
