03 - First Meeting

Start from the beginning

Jin nods and the man left the practice room. Awkward and unwelcoming vibes are there. Jin just stand there looking at his shoes while the other seven trainees scan him from head to toe. Then Jin hears sounds of them moving around. He looks up and see all of seven of the trainee walk towards the side of the practice room, some are sitting on the long bench looking at him, and some are sitting on the cold floor looking at him too.

“What are you doing there?”

Someone says to Jin with expressionless face. A pale man, maybe shorter than him. Jin looks directly in the man’s eyes. Is that annoyed or disgust? Jin didn’t know but one thing he is sure. No one is welcoming him there. So, after the pale man said the words to him, Jin walks closer to them to the other sides of the room with an awkward smile and stand in front of them.

“Are you mute or something? Don’t you know the basic of manners when meeting someone?”

The other man says to Jin. And Jin take it as a sign to introduce himself.

“Hi-“ Jin starts awkwardly.

“I’m Kim Seokjin. I was told that I’m the oldest here” Jin says.

Frowns all over their face. Did Jin screw up? He did introduce himself though.

“Are you kidding me? Are you kidding us?” the same pale man says to Jin.

Honestly, Jin didn’t know what did he do to him that makes the man treat him like that. Maybe Jin is just unwelcome here.

“Your role, your damn life and all” someone says.

Oh, right.

“I’m the youngest in my family, work part time and also a student” Jin replies.

“Your family?” someone with big eyes says to him, he is probably the youngest here.


“They are not here” Jin says slowly.

The atmosphere turn colder than before, a moment of silent. No one says anything. The seven members suddenly feel guilty.

“No no, it’s not like that. My family live abroad so I’m all alone here” Jin says, smiling.

So this kid in front of them is rich? Family lives abroad. But if he is rich enough why the hell he needs to work part time job?

“What about your role?” the tallest man asks.

Jin didn’t say anything. He didn’t understand what the tallest man is talking about.

“Don’t you know? I’m a the leader and a rapper here along with Hoseok, Hyosang hyung and Yoongi hyung. The rest, Jungkook, Jimin and Taehyung are the vocal. What about you?” Namjoon says pointing out on each members.

And by that, now Jin learns and knows what their names.

“I’m probably a vocal” Jin says, sounding confused and hesitates.

“What do you mean you are ‘probably’ a vocal? Don’t you know yourself?” the tallest man, Namjoon says to Jin looking a bit annoyed.

“Honestly I don’t know. I just meet them few days ago and was told to join you today” Jin says awkwardly while still standing.

“So you’re trying to say that you are new and has no experience being a trainee at all?” Yoongi says.

Jin didn’t reply, he just looks down and make his hands busy by playing his sweater.
