My Eleventh Shutter: Cherry Lee Chae Rin
Lee Chae Rin, a student Model. Best friend of mine, studying together in the same University of Arts.
Chae Rin is in the Media Class, slowly progressing towards her dreams of becoming a KPOP singer.
(Chae rin is a really sweet girl who loves singing just like me. She loves photography as well and we had similar hobbies. She is now working as a part-time model and is trying to earn money for her lessons.) I typed.
"What kind of lessons?" Kikwang asked.
(Vocal lessons, piano lessons, guitar lessons, dance and many more regarding to media. She really aspires to become a singer. She had a really wonderful voice and we always love singing together.) I replied.
Kikwang was amazed by Chae Rin, "She is really putting a lot of effort. Can we meet her up?" Kikwang initiated to meet Chae Rin.
Just then, my phone rang...
It was Chae Rin but I couldn't even make a sound now, I passed my phone to Kikwang and hinted him to pick up the call.
Kikwang pressed "Answer" and listened, "MiNi?? Neo gwaenchana?? Can you speak now?? Oh I am so not using my brains here, I heard from Uncle that you ate wasabi accidentally. How was it?? I am sorry that I am not by your side, mianhae...."
And Chae Rin went on and on...
Kikwang was rather waiting patiently for Chae Rin to finish, Chae Rin then felt that the other side was silent, "Mianhae MiNi, I shall text you." Chae Rin was about to hang up.
"Kidari juseyo." Kikwang said, "Chae Rin-ssi, I am MiNi's oppa, you could talk to me and I will answer." Kikwang replied.
*Translations: Please hold on.*
Chae Rin continued speaking through the phone, "You are MiNi's oppa? Jinjja? I never heard her talking to me about her having an oppa. How do i address you then?" Chae Rin asked.
Kikwang smiled, "So you don't recognize my voice over the phone?" Kikwang asked.
Chae Rin was silent for a while, "Do I happen to know you? Your voice does sound very familiar to me." She answered.
Kikwang cleared his throat, "Annyeonghaseyo, Jeoneun Lee Kikwang imnida." He said.
Chae Rin was all silent...
"Chae Rin-ssi, neo gwaenchana? Did I scared you? Please answer back." Kikwang said feeling little worried.
"Oh.. Aniyo. Kikwang-ssi, is it really you?" Chae Rin just couldn't believe Kikwang was speaking to her right now.
Kikwang laughed, "Ne. Chae Rin-ssi, Nice to meet you. Min Ah is now by my side and she couldn't speak. Geokjeonghaji maseyo, she would be fine after a few days of rest." Kikwang got back to the topic.
"Oh.. It's good to hear that from you. Please help me tell her to rest well and don't worry about the project, We will be fine doing brain-storming ourselves." Chae Rin said.
Kikwang conveyed her message to me, I typed using Kikwang's iPhone, (We are having a music project together with the philosophy class and media class. Tell her, I will rest well and sorry.)
Kikwang conveyed the message, "Okay. Can I go visit her? We two are pretty worried about her. Is she in the photo studio?" Chae Rin asked.
Kikwang covered my phone's receiver to prevent Chae Rin from hearing, "Kim Hyung, Can Min Ah's best friends come and visit her? I mean, with us around, is that okay?" Kikwang asked.
Uncle Kim thought for a while, "Can Min Ah's friends promise not to say anything?" Uncle Kim asked.
I nodded simultaneously.
Uncle Kim smiled, "Okay then. They can come. I could allow them to join us going to the beach too." Uncle Kim said.
I smiled and gave Uncle Kim a hug.
Kikwang was back to the phone, "Chae Rin-ssi, you two could come to visit Min Ah but not now. We still had work going on, mianhae but if your parents agree, do join us to go on a trip to the Gyeongpo Beach tomorrow." Kikwang said.
Chae Rin asked Soo Ah and got back to the phone, "Sure, we are okay with it. Where can we meet you all tomorrow?" Chae Rin answered.
*We all stayed in the same dorm in university as it's convenient this way. Dad agreed to me going to the beach, Chae Rin's parents are both overseas and Soo Ah's parents let her lead her own life.*
Kikwang told them to meet us at the hotel lobby tomorrow morning at 9am, "Just pack along some clothes to change. There are Wi-Fi connection and so, you could bring along your laptop and things that you three needed for the project." Kikwang said.
"Ne, neomu kamsahmanida. We will be punctual tomorrow." Chae Rin said.
"Sure, We will be looking forward." Kikwang said.
Chae Rin said goodbye and hung up, Kikwang oppa gave me my phone back, "There you go. Your friends will be going with us to the beach tomorrow." Kikwang said with a smile.
I nodded and smiled really sweet, (Komawo) I typed and returned oppa his phone.
*Translations: Komawo means Thank you in an informal way.*
Kikwang oppa ruffled my hair and gave me a gentle kiss on my forehead, "Get well soon okay?" He said.
I nodded and felt so sorry to have made him so worried for me.
And then BEAST went on with their schedule, I decided to stay in the van alone and played music through my iPhone in the van. Had the urge to use my voice but hold it back.
Texted with Chae Rin who was still shocked after the call, ^Ne.I wouldn't lie to you^ I replied.
^I know. So you are alone now?^ She asked.
^Yup. Alone in the van locked up, pretty safe, don't worry.^ I replied.
^Okay then, we are going to start with brain-storming. You should rest well. I will text you back later.^ She texted and this marks the end of the conversation.
I decided to take a nap, the next time I wake up it was already night time...
