Description

For centuries it has been a tradition for the child of a noble to receive a Noye, a slave, as their coming of age present for their 21st birthday. Although it is only Han Mihyun's 16th birthday, her father has deemed it appropriate to grant her with the one thing she dreads the most, a Noye. Mihyun has lived her life categorizing everything she has ever encountered into either being beautiful or hideous - but with an exceptional twist; she doesn't judge on appearance, but instead by what each individual holds within. That is why, despite his rough hair, harsh eyes, and the number of faded scars decorating his skin, Kim Sehun is the most beautiful thing Mihyun has ever laid her eyes on.

 

"The world was a beautiful place. It was the people living on it that were ugly."

 

Foreword

Background information: The story takes place in modern day Seoul, but with a twist of humanity. Although the technology and resources are up to date, the social inequalities are more than present, and the slave trave continues on. This story manipulates the rights and social classes of human beings in a rather cruel manner and identifies the cruelty within each and every individual.

Warnings: There will be dark themes such a ual abuse, violence, extreme social inequalities, death, and etc, so if you are not comfortable with such themes, please do not read - none of these will be extremely descriptive, however.

 

 

A/N: This is certainly a dramatic change from my typical stories, and will take a more angst and melchony turn in contrast to my usual upbeat and nonchalantly written fics.

Chapter 40: i remember i read this years ago but i never got to finish it because i lost interest in this site. this time, i managed to read the whole thing in one sitting. i still don't know why am i back here, but this story made me feel a whole roller coaster ride of emotions. the way you told the story is so beautiful and heart breaking, i cried a lot of times. i love mihyun's character. she's so brave, yet fragile. you're very talented in making your readers feel so much in one chapter, and for that, i applaud you. this will always be one of my personal favorites. you are really talented and amayzing. i wish you all the success in teh future. good luck!

Chapter 40: You're amazing. The way you tugged at my heartstrings with this story is unbelievable. You made me bawl my eyes out at some point and giggle like a high school girl in love at others. I'm looking forward to reading your other fics too. Good job and more power! :)

Chapter 40: I really enjoyed reading this fic! I haven't read one in a few years but I'm on summer holiday before I start Uni now so decided it was about time~ I've accidental spent the last 8 hours straight reading this ?
I especially loved how you brought in a lot of themes that I wouldn't normally expect in a normal fluffy romance kpop story haha!
(SPOILERS BELOW!!!)
Just a note! I noticed in the epilogue the names of the baby switches between Kyungsoo and Haru and the girlfriend changes between Ara and Cecilia. :)
(Also man the angst is real I can't believe what happened to Kyungsoo and Minseok...)
