A locally-run coffee shop frequented by the group's younger members. Seems to do well despite not having much foot traffic.

Pointing out a few different dishes that he liked the best, he tensed a little as the younger girl moved toward their table, only to be gently pushed out of the way by her mother. He greeted her as "eomma" as she approached, thanking whatever powers were listening that he didn't have to deal with two needy women instead of the much more pleasant one seated before him. Ordering water, he looked to his date for her drink.

She ordered water as well, flushing softly as she heard the woman comment on how pretty his date was this time. She looked up at the woman and gave a nervous laugh. "Ma'am, I'm not his date, we're just...friends that ran into each other again, that's all." He didn't look at this as a date. She shouldn't either. Flushing darker, she glanced at the man before looking back down at her menu.

"But I'm having more fun now than I've had on any date I've had before." he pointed out, smiling as the woman laid a hand on each of their arms before moving to the kitchen once again.

As she felt hte warm touch, her gaze moved to the woman again, cheeks flushing softly. She glanced at the man across form her with a soft laugh. "She seems...really kind." At his words, she flushed a little darker. "Maybe...sometime we'll have to see how a real date goes." What the hell was she even saying?

"She is. And if she had her way, I'd weigh three hundred pounds." He shook his head with a laugh, before raising an eyebrow at her comment. "A...real date? You'd want to spend that kind of time with me?"

"I can't imagine you weighing that much. You're very..toned now." She laughed, unaware that she was expressing that she'd been checking him out a few times. As she heard the last, her cheeks flushed and she kept her eyes low. "It's...not that. I just... It was a joke. I was just thinking out loud, that's all. Sorry. Not a date. Don't freak out on me, okay?"

"Thank you. I'm...vain enough to stay that way." He chuckled at the last, shaking his head. "I'm not freaking out. Honestly I wouldn't be opposed to the idea...but if it was a joke, why are you blushing?"

As she heard the last, the question, her cheeks burned darker and she shook her head. "I didn't realize I was. It was just...I get flustered easily, over the silliest things. Don't worry, I wasn't serious at all." She wasn't the date-worthy type, anyway. "I was just talking, not thinking."

"If you asked, I would say yes." he commented lightly, tone carefully casual as he looked over the menu he had memorized years before. He was sure she would shoot him down in record time.

She flushed, unable to keep from lookingup at him in obvious shock before she gave a weak smile. "I guess...it's a good thing I don't ask. Ever." Because if he said yes, then she wouldn't know how to act around him at all. Besides...she wasn't the kind of woman his mother would ever approve of. "I'm awkward enough as is."

"And if I did?" She wasn't giving him a clear answer as to whether or not she would even want to go on a proper date with him, he thought, wondering if he was the only one with an interest in continuing whatever it was that was happening between them. Or if he was creating a situation where nothing happened to be.

"You..wouldn't." Her cheeks burned, fingers moving up into her hair to brush it back from her face before she managed to find the courage to look up at him. "I mean...You could do so much better than someone like me. Besides, I'm not so sure your mother would approve. Doesn't she want you dating some...rich, useful woman?:

"Wouldn't I?" He studied her, brushing a loose lock of hair out of his eyes. "You're beautiful, smart, you put up with me when I say the wrong things...and I like talking to you. I was looking forward to meeting you again before I saw you today. I don't care about money or usefulness, I care about who someone really is. If they make me happy."

"i really... Can't see you asking, Mr. Jung..." She flushed at the compliments, ducking her head again. He had wanted to see her...? Or was he saying it because he thought it was what she wanted to hear...? "So... You don't care at all that i can barely afford ramen noodles for dinner every night? That my electricity is shut off every other month? It doesnt bother you at all?"

"Not even a little." He shook his head before realizing how that could sound, correcting quickly, "I mean, it bothers me that you live like that, but it's not a deal-breaker. It's something that worries me. Living like that must be tough." His frown shifted to a small smile after a moment, adding, "You are...really cute when you blush like that."

"So...it bothers you because you worry, not because it doesn't make me a good potential partner?" She raised a brow, clearly surrprised by his statement. As she heard the last, she felt her cheeks heat even darker and she looked away. "I'm...I'm not cute. And I"m not blushing!"

"Yeah, that's exactly it." He nodded, relaxing a little as she showed that she understood. His smile widened at the reaction, adding, "You are. And you are. I can see it pretty clearly."

The flush darkened even more and she was about to argue before the woman approached the table wit their drinks and asked for their order. Glad for the rescue, she shot the woman a look of thanks before turning her gaze back to the menu.

Ordering a simple favorite, he glanced over to her, brushing a strand of hair from his eyes. "And whatever you'd like."

She nodded, telling the woman she'd take the same before she moved back into the kitchen. She smiled up at him, the look weak, clearly nervous. "You really know what you like here..."
