Not all is as it seems.
Oh Sehun is the Ice Prince. A man of routine. A boy with absolutely nothing to wish for. Fame, money, influence; he's got it all. He's more assured about his life than most are. In fact, his life consists of one day after the next of unchangeable circumstances. It's a solid line headed for success.
Of course, things can't always stay the same. And there's one person who wants to make sure of that.
The Oh family receives "threats" on a monthly basis, if not more. But when one turns out to be more real than not, the family takes desperate measures. And in comes Huang Zi Tao.
The boy in the picture was thin and tall, a mess of dyed blond hair fell over his eyes and the tiniest of smiles graced his features. He must have been posing with a friend -- there was an arm around his shoulder and his hand made a lazy peace sign -- but only half of the photo remained. The man holding the photo memorized the boy's features in a matter of seconds and quickly threw it into the flame beside him. He watched as the ember licked up the dry scrap of paper and engulf it in its heat. He almost wanted to smile at the sight. Very soon, that boy would end up just like his picture: simply a pile of ashes and lost memories.
"Are you ready?" The man looks up at the person speaking to him. He nods. "Good." The other person replies. "Then you can head off."
The man walks away from the already-dying fire, one-hundred percent prepared for whatever outcome would come to him. It would surely be success. Failure wasn't an option.
