My first impression of Hagok was that it was similar to Songju, but a little more lively. I fell behind the people rushing to leave the platform and walked leisurely. It was unlike me to move slowly, but I moved so slowly that I almost interfered with the flow of people around me. I behaved like someone who had vowed to behave as unlike Jung Hoseok as possible. I paid no mind to people around me and moved as I wished. I ate spicy foods that I didn't normally like. And when I paid, I didn't tell the server that the food was good. When no one was around me. I even spit on the ground.
I followed the map on the internet to the place where the store was going to be opened. It was the first floor of a strip mall near a high school. Next door there was a stationery store and a 20-hour kimbap restaurant. It was so much like the location of Two Star Burger in Songju that it was almost funny. I looked around me, wondering where I should look for a house if I was going to move here, and as I was looking I bumped into someone.
"Sor-" I began to apologize automatically, then stopped myself. I purposely put some strength in my gaze and looked at that person with a critical gaze. "Look where you're going.” Hagok's Jung Hoseok was a rascal, a crazy person, an idiot who did only what he wanted.
That illusion lasted only for about five seconds. "Hoseok hyung, is that you?" It was someone I knew.
