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

"N-No..I didn't. You dont seem the...c-cooking type." With cheeks burning, she shifte d a little to put more space between them again, apologinzing softly.

"Don't worry about it." He shook his head with a small smile. "I...learned to cook from a young age. My mother was prety insistent about it. It's pretty relaxing, honestly."

With a small smile at how kind this man was, she nodded. "Your mother..tauhgt you how to cook? Do you enjoy doing it, then?"

"I love it. Nothing's better than seeing someone enjoying something you've made." He nodded, smiling softly at the memories of learning to cook. "It's...more fun cooking for others than just for me."

"So is that why you cook for your brothers--er...friends?" She looked up at him, smiling slightly, raising a brow. "I've..never really tried to learn to cook. I'd like to, I think, but I've never tried..."

"They're as close to brothers as I'll get." He nodded, smile gaining strength. "It's not as hard as it looks. I mean, a lot of it is intimidating, but...a lot of great food is really easy."

"I'll..have to try to learn sometime." She smiled, nodding. After a moment, she looked up at him again. "So, Jung Taekwoon, would you tell me about them? I really only know what I saw today...but something to let me get to know them a little better, anything...would be great."

"The boys? They're...a mess." He laughed softly, describing what he knew of them one by one. Hakyeon was overbearing, but incredibly kind-hearted. Jaehwan was the most positive force in the group, Hongbin was surprisingly supportive, though he and Hyuk got into much more trouble than one would expect. Wonsik was the closest to him, a great songwriter, and his best friend. He spoke as if they were family, smiling fondly as he described each one.

She bit her lip, listening to his words, thinking them over as she tried to put the personality to the name. When he finished, she looked up at him. "And you? Are you just..the quiet one or is there more to you?"

"I think I'm the boring one, honestly. They...try to pull me out of my shell a lot." He felt his face flush under the attention. "I'm...not sure what there is to me, honestly."

"I imagined you to be the violent one, honestly. I hope you dont mind me saying that." She laughed weakly, shaking her head. "Maybe...you should take the time to figure it out..."

"Only when they deserve it." He felt his face heat at the thought, knowing that he'd hit the others a few times that afternoon alone. "How do you think I should do that?" He asked at the last, raising an eyebrow.

"Only when tehy deserve it." she laughed softly, shaking her head as she looked up at him again. "Um..I don't know. explore things you've never done before. Just...test yourself, try new things. YOu might learn more about yourself that way."

"I never thought to do that before. I wouldn't know where to start." He hummed softly, wondering what he could do to explore himself when he barely got out of the training room or the recording studios.

With a small smile, she raised a brow. "Maybe...go rock climbing. Boxing, swimming...go to a poetry reading or volunteer at a shelter or...even do somethign smaller, try rapping in one of your songs...release more of your lyrics. Anything to test yourself." She smiled, looking up at him, already feeling a little more comfortable wit him. "..who knows...asking out a stranger could even be one of your tests.." A real date, not a fake one to see how they should act, to get comfortable. But him asking out a woman he was actually attracted to...she imagined it would help a lot.

"All of that sounds...like nothing I would think of myself." He laughed softly. "Maybe start small. Is your shelter looking for volunteers?" He asked, shooting her a smile. "I don't think I could ask anyone out...I don't have any women I've ever spoken to."

Looking up in shock as he mentioned her shelter, she felt her heart jump at the idea of working with him in such close quarters every day. "They...they are, yes." She dropped her gaze to her lap, fingers toying with her pants. "I'm the only morning employee and they only allow one volunteer to be 'hired' at a time since the halls are so small so you'd have to be pretty comfortable being in...close quarters with me. Or the owners when they're in."

"It owldn't bother me if it wouldn't bother you. I wouldn't want to make you sick of me so quickly." He wondered what she thought of the idea, hoping that it wasn't something that would make her uncomfortable.

"It wouldn't bother me. IF you're okay having me as your boss." She laughed weakly, still toying with her pants for a moment. "I don't think I'd get sick of you at all, Mr. Jung. You...seem like the kind of person I can get along with fairly easily."

"I think we'll work well together. And I'll be able to be around the animals, and get to know you better. We all win." He couldn't hide a wide smile at the thought of spending time with her and a shelter full of animals. It was almost the perfect job, aside from pursuing music.
