Preface

Submitted: June 11, 2017

Disclaimer:
1) I do not attempt to steal the identities of the people shown in the cover images of this story – one is a famous South Korean actor and the other is a picture of a girl I found on Tumblr. Their identities remain their own and I am simply using their pictures to facilitate a better understanding of what I imagine my own characters to look like—I am in no way trying to replace or deny their identity, their image is only used to convey how I perceive the protagonists in my story to look like.
2) As is obvious, this is an original work and no attempt at plagiarism or appropriation in any form would be appreciated or encouraged.
3) While this story has been listed under Romance — it does not encapsulate a mere two odd genres—this work will contain romance, mystery, crime, humor, dark tones and light tones, set in a medical background—it is not constrained to a particular creative mold. The main plot will reveal itself after the fundamental introductory chapters which will introduce the important characters to the reader.
4) The protagonists of this story will be Dr. Yoon Hae Jin and Dr. Kang Mi-Rae, who are both either half or fully South Korean. As I am not a native Korean, nor a doctor or possessor of a medical degree, I apologize in advance for any mistakes I make or any ignorance I show regarding either Korean society and customs, or medical terminology. Any errors committed if any; I assure you, will be borne out of a genuine lack of knowledge and will not be intended to offend.
5) For future reference for non-Korean readers, the last name of individuals in South Korea is written and used first, and after that the first name. Thus ‘Yoon’- last name, and ‘Hae Jin’- first name. First names are only used when you are close to the person.

IMPORTANT: I understand that it is often irksome to leave reviews on stories—but both positive feedback as well as constructive criticism is vitally important to an author. We end up feeling severely discouraged if we receive no feedback for our work. So it is my humble request, do please comment and let me know what you think.

So Strong, So Weak

Submitted: June 12, 2017

Disclaimer:
You’ll be seeing the male lead in this chapter; the enigmatic Dr. Yoon Hae Jin, as well as getting an introduction to his character.
Enjoy!
I repeat, last names are used first per Korean custom, thus Yoon & Kang are the last names, and Hae-Jin and Mi-Rae respectively are first names.
Next chapter will be Dr. Kang Mi-Rae’s!

Running Scared

Introducing the just as mysterious Dr. Kang Mi-Rae!

Also, I am aware that it takes much longer for people to get doctoral degrees, much less dual ones-- but since this is fictional 'verse, let's just think of it as possible.

Enjoy! Read Chapter

The Healing Is In Your Hands

Submitted: June 14, 2017

So a couple of things!

It was pointed out to me by a clever reader that I have yet to explain how all these Korean names and words are pronounced, and that some of you may at least want to know how the main character's names are pronounced:

Dr. Yoon Hae Jin= Yoon (rhymes with moon)- Hay- Gin (the g is silent)

Dr. Kang Mi-Rae= K-ah-ng- Me-Ray

The word 'Seongsaengnim' is pronounced as 'song-sang-neem' (the ee in neem is pronounced like the ee in 'feed') .

Aaand that's pretty much it for now. Enjoy-- it's Dr. Yoon's PoV! Read Chapter

Split PoV-- You'll be seeing the chinks in Dr. Yoon's armor, so to speak.
You'll also see a very long-suffering Dr. Kang XD
Not that he'd ever admit it, haha!

The quote in the beginning of the chapter is from Joy Division's Dead Souls. Read Chapter

Killer In The Crowds

Submitted: June 29, 2017

In Korean society, there are different levels of respect used for people, and there are multiple words that mean the same thing but differ on the level of respect intended:
Kansamnida is the most respectful way of saying thank you in Korean.

The quote from Great Expectations is one of my favorites. ^_^
Uninterrupted, it runs like this: 'Suffering has been stronger than all other teaching, and has taught me to understand what your heart used to be. I have been bent and broken—but-- I hope-- into better shape.'
