After losing her sight to a disease, Sunhee finds refuge in her long-time passion—baking. It is a quiet life, working for her aunt’s bakery. Then comes along Junmyeon. It starts out as a simple order of brownies, but the next thing Sunhee knows, her aunt is describing to her how a handsome man seems to have eyes on her.

This leaves Sunhee unfazed at first, for years of blindness has left her in a bleak world where beauty is virtually nonexistent and nearly irrelevant. She’s hesitant to allow people to get close, and she’s constantly cynical and bitter. Much of her time is spent in her room where she listens to the hundreds of audiobooks she owns. As far as she’s concerned, the only beautiful things in her world are the words by her favorite authors.

But there are some things in the world, apparently (according to the Junmyeon, the persistent and allegedly handsome), that don’t need to be seen. After all, beauty is not a construct defined only by sight. It can be smelled, heard, or…touched.


CHARACTERS: Junmyeon (Suho), Sunhee (OC), and more to be revealed!

AU(s): blind!oc medstudent!suho

GENRES: fluff, romance, (some, if any) angst

WARNINGS: blind oc

INSPIRATIONS: Christine Hà, a blind chef who appeared and won on the third season of MasterChef



“Write in the perspective of a blind person.”




So…this was supposed to be a paragraph long exercise for a class, but since I’m extra, I had to make it a full-blown story.

Originally, this was supposed to be with Baekhyun, but there aren’t enough stories with my man Junmyeon? Seriously, what’s up with that? He deserves more love, and this is my way of showing that. I’m so cheesy, sorry.

Anyways, this story is going to be a few chapters (below 10), and it will be mostly filled with fluff and overall cuteness. This was mostly a challenge, and I love challenges, so here goes.

I hope you guys enjoy!



Thank you to Leonny for the amazing cover!

Chapter 7: This was beautiful, the development was perfect, I knew how to put reality into the story too. I like defined endings, but the story was so light and good that the ending made me think of the many good endings they had

Chapter 7: This was a beautiful story. Love how there are things left up for readers to imagine. Like, how Sunhee's promotion went? Did Jongdae succeed in being a singer? How did Sehun's life went after the revenge he got?

Junmyeon's and Sunhee's love story was like a flower- blooming slowly but then being the most beautiful flower in the whole garden. Loved to see all aspects of their relationship- the good and bad moments, arguments and kisses.

Thank you for writing this story!

Chapter 6: Sunhee was so lovely in this chapter and their moments were adorable. There were more moments of Sehun's and Sunhee's friendship.

Also, Junmyeon beung sincere was deeply appreaciated by Sunhee. Liked that he wasn't afraid of showing his emotions. His mom was someone very dear who taught him on how to appreaciate the moments with loved ones.

Chapter 5: Sunhee had a phone all along but this day, this experience will be something no one will be able to take away from her.

Loved how romantic the scene was going with them making other know how in love they are, and then Junmyeon mentioned the dead rat so casually. But that is just part of life and the scenery.

Loved how we found out a little bit more about Sehun and Jongdae. Without them Sunhee's day wouldn’t be so fun and hey, the more people, the merrier they say.

Chapter 4: Sehun made an appearance! He is such a cool fashionista. Sunhee can never get bored with him because she loves descriptions where she can vividly imagine things. And Sehun is unstoppable when it comes to clothes.

Junmyeon making a game that Sunhee can enjoy is sweet. Theur moments make my heart melt. The best couple out there.

Chapter 3: Loved how imaginative their first date was. Anyone else would have been mad for being tricked like that but not Sunhee. She liked the experience because it allowed her to imagine and see things vividly, through her soul and imagination of course.

Junmyeon is doing his best to make Sunhee feel happy. Their first kiss was very romantic and a sweet read.

Also thr story is so well written that a 5 k word chapter flies over so fast. Definitely a good read.

Chapter 2: Junmyeon being a med student fits him so much. He is hard working, genuine and genuinely likes Sunhee. At least I hope that he does.He makes time for her and manages to make her experience what falling in love is.

His voicemail was so adorable and Joanne hearing it because the phone is very loud was funny. Excited to see what Sunhee will reply and if they will meet, how their meeting will go.

Chapter 1: I really like that Junmyeon is a little awkward around her or maybe awkward in general.It fits his personality. He fancies the bakery because that is tehe place where he meets Sunhee, a blind but beautiful and kind girl who manages to sneak into his heart.

No matter how much she tries, Sunhee can't deny Junmyeon's charms. And Joanne is so relatable, trying to booat Sunhee's confidence and also to reconnect her with the world.
I remember reading this years ago… and now I’m rereading. It feels like one of the studio ghibli movies you know… all the softness and world building where each movement is felt? And your writing always amaze me
This story is so soft🥺❤️

Its been a while since I read this but I just wanted to comment on how beautiful this story is. Not only does it feature one of the less written about members, but it also touches on a more realistic relationship. From the first chapter, I fell in love with the characters and the setting of the story. Thank you for writing something so breathtaking ❤
