Jeonghan meets his cousin Iljo, who he almost forgot existed, at his uncle’s funeral. Feeling sympathy for the impoverished Iljo, Jeonghan impulsively suggests to live together, which he soon regrets.
“What are you doing?”
“What do you have to say for yourself.”
He asked because he discovered Iljo secretly tying to kiss him while he was asleep. Jeonghan attempts to kick out Iljo, but, in the end, fails to do so. Instead, he asks how Iljo can get rid of his unrequited feelings.
“Just kiss me once.”
“If I do that, will that help you like me less?”
On the pretext of sympathy, Jeonghan slowly gave his heart to Iljo. Before he knows it, he finds himself to be sexually involved and possessive over him.
