I believe that it is better to tell the truth than a lie. I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. And I believe it is better to know than to be ignorant.

Irene Bae. The most talked about name in Korea's world of modeling today.
In the eyes of many people, Irene Bae is the definition of perfection. She's a goddess that can make any people fall in love with her, bow down on their knees to worship the floor she stepped on and had everything she wanted with just a snapped of her fingers.
But no one knows about Bae Joohyun; the real person behind Irene Bae. The simple girl who wanted a normal life.
But most of all, Bae Joohyun is the girl who can't forget her first love.
The one and only Kang Seulgi.
"What the hell? What is this darkness? Is this really the bedroom of Irene Bae who loves the sky?"
Joohyun groaned then covered her head with the pillow. She tried hard to ignore Yeri's rambling and just forced herself to fall asleep again. But knowing her cousin slash manager, that's impossible to do at the moment.
Yeri pulled away the pillow covering Joohyun's head then smacked it to her. "Time to wake up now, sleeping beauty. We have an afternoon meeting at the modeling agency handling you, Your Highness."
Joohyun opened her eyes then rolled it after she caught sight of Yeri. "Is that about the photoshoot again? Just agreed to it so they will finally stop bothering me."
Yeri grinned. "Are you sure? I thought you felt insulted after knowing that the photographer assigned to you on that photoshoot is a newbie."
"I don't care now. Besides, it's your job to do research about that newbie, right, manager-nim?"
"Well... I don't know if you will be happy about my research regarding 'her', Joohyun unnie." Yeri said with a suspicious worry in her voice. That made Joohyun sat up on her bed then looked straight in her eyes.
"What about it, Kim Yerim?"
Yeri faked a cough before saying. "The newbie photographer is very talented. I've checked her profiles and... social media account just to know her more like what you want me to do, paranoid Bae."
"And then... that's it? Why do you think your research about her will affect me, huh?" Joohyun said. She stand up and was about to enter the bathroom when she heard what Yeri said.
"Her name is Kang Seulgi."
Joohyun widen her eyes, looked back at Yeri with tears started forming in her eyes. "W-What? Are you saying that..."
Yeri nodded. "I've checked her social media account and... yeah, she's really Seulgi unnie."
Joohyun chuckled bitterly. "She's still alive, huh? I thought she's already dead." She felt hatred and that feeling is not good.
Because love and hate resemble twin flowers.
Joohyun is now in her Senior year in High School. She's an introvert so she doesn't mind graduating on the school without circle of friends. But it all changed after the day she walked back home with a sophomore schoolmate tailing behind her almost every school days.
Joohyun just ignored her, thinking that it's just a coincidence t
