Two very different stories, their lies, woes, and the music industry that connects them. 

Set in South Korea, "The Lies We Tell" tells the stories of Harin and Jaehyeon, two idols struggling to keep themselves together in the grueling K-Pop industry. 

Absorbing Me - Harin's life as her stage persona RIN is full of adventure and best-selling music, but behind closed doors, she finds she's lost her hold over RIN and the personal, inner life she holds dear. The parts of her safe from the public have begun to fade, and RIN's personality has taken over. The distinction between herself and her persona has blurred together. Can she wrestle RIN back on to the stage where she belongs?

Distorted Images - From the outside, Jaehyeon's shifting weight has been disguised by long sleeves and baggy shirts for years. But as his eating disorder begins to affect his career, the lies he tells to hide his problem begin to crush him and unravel. He finds he must rely on those around him and himself to pull through, but will he have the strength?

They are inspired by BTS's songs Persona and Lie. Also inspired a bit by RM and Jimin of BTS. These stories, however, are my original work, not fanfiction. There will be more short stories coming later (for other members), but for now, please enjoy Harin's and Jaehyeon's stories for BTS'S 6th anniversary. <3
