Beauty Before Beast

Please Subscribe to read further chapters


Jang Hyunseung's life turned upside down when a fan snapped a picture of him in a café with a girl and posted it on Instagram. Cube Entertainment kicked him out of Beast and now haunted by memories, he yearns for a secret love.  Will Hyuna heal his heart?   




When I read the Beauty Before Beast, I was reminded on how Troublemaker was formed.  CEO Hong needed to form a subunit to promote both groups, Beast and 4Minute and to protect both of his best talents.  Hyuna was his bestseller having dazzled American audiences with Gangam Style.  She had appeal. Hyunseung was the best dancer but his personality was too quiet, too sensitive and too much of a flower boy.   There were many toos to count so he wasn't CEO Hong's natural choice for a lead.  He was strongly leaning towards Junghyung as a best talent because of his strong attitude or maybe DongWoon. But what became Troublemaker was really Hyuna's idea.  She has that type of influence with the CEO.  She chose Hyunseung for his dancing abilities and harmonious voice.  His style appealed to her and he became a hell of a strong lead.   Somehow, she found a way to unveil the true Hyunseung who was short lived in Beast.   She later told me that she wouldn't even practice Troublemaker's choreography with her dance instructor.  She would only do so with Hyunseung.  Ravi put her on the spot once on Korean television asking about their relationship.   Hyuna is not one to kiss and tell. . .

Author's Note:

Inspired by the recent events in Cube Entertainment, I began this journey without knowing much about Hyunseung and why he left Beast.  As I researched the reasons, I became fascinated with his character--  an idol with few words and deep sorrowful eyes who projected his sensitivity in interviews and captivated audiences with Hyuna.   This is where the real story begins.  Are they really in love?  Their chemistry was beyond anything I had seen on Korean television.   It didn't seem staged but natural.  

This is a work of metafiction, a K-pop story, inspired on actual events speculated by netizens.  It is loosely based on credible news  and more on my imagination.   In other words, it is a totally made up story (including the foreword) starring Troublemaker (Hyunseung (JS), Hyuna), Junghyung, Beast, 4 Minute, Usher, Prince, Michael Jackson and other famous and not so famous people.  

This is my first fan fiction.

Before Triple H, there was Troublemaker!

 When asked whether the two would reunite, she said, "I cannot say for sure.  Trouble Maker was a project that we worked on and prepared whenever a song that matched our concept came in.  We haven't made plans for promotions, but I am very ambitious when it comes to performing, so I want to promote as Trouble Maker, too."  (AllKpop, August 1, 2016).

Author's Note: 2023

I am so tempted to write a new Hyunseung and Hyuna fan fiction. Hyunseung now has a new stage name, Able. Hyuna recently broke up with E-Dawn. Fate?

Chapter 13: Ah this is sad but it's reallly good. I like how you put your own thoughts behind whats been going on and how we can connect. Its cool
Ahahha. Unfortunately, if you know the real deal then this fanfic would have become a whole different angsty story and Hyuna would not be in the best of light. But I will read this, hopefully I can erase the truth that is in my memory. ToT
I hate that sometimes insider information can tend to ruin fanfics for me. But I am hoping on your fanfic to make me a bit happier than I am with the truth.
Chapter 21: caught up in one sitting. honestly this is such fantastic writing & my 2hyun who have suffered...I'm excited for the next chapter!
Chapter 17: It's so sad, I get so upset just thinking of the anti fans that used to be fans of his before he disbanded from Beast. I'm glad to see him working so hard though. It has to be tough.

For those who are shipping the Jun-ah couple instead of the 2Hyun couple, then chapter 12 is for you.
