August 9: Seok-jin takes a photo of a beach in Los Angeles. He talks about how living with his mother's family house felt neither strange nor familiar to him, and that he just hid his emotions. He notes that ever since he went to LA, he has never taken a photo of people. He'd only take photos of the ocean, which was different every time in terms of the weather, light, and his heart. He didn't bring the photos he took during high school, saying that the Seok-jin in highschool is different from the current Seok-jin because the Seok-jin before didn't hide his feelings. He explains that he didn't bring the photos because he was afraid to miss what they had back then and ponder how everyone is doing. So, he kept the photos in a box.[59]


December 17: Nam-joon recalls the year he spent at the new village he and his family lived in. There, he worked as a delivery boy alongside many other boys his age who all worked competitively to volunteer for deliveries. One notable person was someone by the name of Jong-sik or Jong-hun, whom Nam-joon referred to as "Tae-hyung" because he reminded him of the actual Tae-hyung. He took a delivery which was dangerous to ride on a scooter due to the snow. He managed to get home after a small accident, and "Tae-hyung" does the next job in the area because Nam-joon had to bring his father to the hospital. The day after, however, Nam-joon finds out that "Tae-hyung" died on an accident on his way back with the scooter.[60] Nam-joon decides to leave and go back to Songju to escape from his family and the responsibility he had to carry amidst their poverty.

Sometimes there were hard days, but it was easier then because his friends were there. With the start of the new semester, students came inside the joint and he thinks about his highschool friends and what had happened to them. He recalls Seok-jin last summer vacation who seemed to be avoiding them, so he kept distance.[47][48] He finds out that Seok-jin transferred. Yoon-gi didn't respond to their calls, and no one knew what happened to Nam-joon. Tae-hyung also began to ditch school after Nam-joon left and was seen in and out of the police station for his graffiti. He sees Jung-kook from time to time, thinking that he must've got into fights based from his bruises. Lastly, he recalls Ji-min, whom he last saw at the hospital, something that still haunts him. His thoughts get cut off when someone familiar walks into the joint.[64][65]

March 29: Tae-hyung gets hit by the gas station owner for doing graffiti there. He crouches below his graffiti, remembering the time when he started doing them. Back then, he just picked up a spray can and started spraying on the wall with no thought. Though he thought it was ugly, he knew it was a part of him.

He didn't want to get close to him at first, remembering the time in highschool. He didn't want to be important to someone. Nevertheless, he ends up walking up to him, pointing out the wrong note to him. It is the first time they had seen each other since high school.[69][70]

Seok-jin has been sitting by the stairs,[11] remembering Yoon-gi's words. He feels as though he saved Yoon-gi against his will, and suddenly wonders if there was a point to him saving everyone.

Nam-joon, Yoon-gi, Jung-kook, Tae-hyung, and Ho-seok reuniting.

However, he concludes that even if he can't do anything, he also can't merely leave them alone. He goes to the information desk and asks for Yoon-gi's room, only to find out that he'd already been discharged last month. Ho-seok gets a call from Nam-joon, telling him that he's at the hospital with Tae-hyung, Jung-kook, and Yoon-gi to visit him. Ho-seok invites Ji-min to come and see them, but he declines and tells Ho-seok not to let him know that he's there. The group reunites and catches up with each other. Tae-hyung asks Ho-seok if he keeps in touch with Ji-min, to which he doesn't respond. Nam-joon leaves for his shift and crosses paths with Seok-jin, asking him if he's here to come and see Ho-seok. Seok-jin finds out what happened to Ho-seok.[87]

May 12: Ho-seok is sitting at the stairs, remembering the conversation he had heard yesterday. He then sees a woman with a child and thinks it's his mother. He calls out for her, only to see he was a different person. He ends up tripping and falling down the stairs. Seok-jin goes to the hospital to look for Ho-seok and bumps into Ji-min. Before the two could talk, nurses rush by and they see Ho-seok at the bed in pain with a twisted ankle. Seok-jin screams out before turning back time.[87]

Seok-jin's post-it notes.

May 10: Ho-seok collapses on the bridge but Seok-jin catches him before he lands to the ground. A flashback scene plays during their school days wherein Ho-seok collapses in their secret hideout. He woke up then took his pills shortly thereafter. Ho-seok wakes up in Seok-jin's car as they head to the hospital. Ho-seok tells him that he doesn't need to go to the hospital because they would just say the same thing to him. He takes his pills and Seok-jin asks him if he knows the cause of his narcolepsy. Ho-seok keeps silent before asking Seok-jin to drop him off the intersection for work. Seok-jin asks again if he's alright. Ho-seok agrees, then notices the post-it notes and inquires Seok-jin about it, who only gives him a faint smile and drops him off. Ho-seok goes to work, still wondering about the notes. He meets up with Nam-joon and the two talk about Seok-jin's odd behaviour. Eventually, Ho-seoks leaves, borrowing a scooter. While in a red light, he checks his text to Seok-jin that's still left unanswered. However, he sees him in a car on the other lane and tries to follow him before nearly crashing with a car.[73] Seok-jin has been following Yoon-gi, who goes to a different motel and starts burning everything. Ho-seok is at the convenience store, still waiting for Seok-jin's reply. He notices Seok-jin's car pass by and goes out to follow it. He sees Seok-jin carrying a half-burnt Yoon-gi and both go to the hospital. While they wait for him in the emergency room, Ho-seok realises Seok-jin knew it was going to happen and begins to question him about the notes and everything strange that had happened. Seok-jin tells him that he can't explain it today, but Ho-seok says he'll be waiting at the lobby without leaving unless he's given an explanation. While Ho-seok waits, he notices someone pass by, thinking it was Ji-min. He follows him at the stairs, only to find out it was someone else. He ends up tripping but is caught by the actual Ji-min. The two talk about feeling like they're stuck in time and Ho-seok ends up recalling the day his mother left him. Ho-seok then asks Ji-min if he wants to get out of the hospital.[88]

Seok-jin, Ji-min, Ho-seok, Nam-joon and Tae-hyung trying to escape.

He calls Nam-joon, with Tae-hyung beside him, to let him know what happened. Seok-jin watches over the unconscious Yoon-gi, thinking about the amount of times he had seen this. He goes out to find Ji-min and ends up finding Ho-seok, Nam-joon, Tae-hyung, and Ji-min escaping. Seok-jin thinks this loop is a failure because the others weren't supposed to save him and thinks that something worse could happen. He stops them and ends up with an argument with Tae-hyung. The others let him know how Ji-min's been forced to be locked up for two years, and Seok-jin realises he doesn't really know anything of what happened to him nor his final moments. He still thinks about what would happen next, whether it could be an opportunity for Ji-min or not. Eventually, he asks Ji-min himself if he wants to escape. Ji-min flashes back to the time his mother kept him in the hospital. He tried to escape but some black mist stopped him. He kept himself in the bathtub, scratching his feet as he recalled his bad memories. Ji-min decides that he wants to escape, and everyone, including Seok-jin continues with the escape. However, they are stopped by Ji-min's mother, causing them to go away and Ji-min to go back to his hospital room. Ji-min and his mother end up in an argument about his illness which ends with his mother slapping him and leaving the room. Ji-min begins to cry, saying that he hadn't done anything the past two years yet this was the first time someone had visited him.[89]

May 12: Seok-jin walks around the hospital as he passes by nurses calling out for Ji-min. The nurses open the door and Seok-jin rushes in to see Ji-min in a bathtub full of water unconscious.[89] He immediately drags Ji-min out of the tub, yelling about what he was doing. Ji-min begins to regain consciousness as Seok-jin thinks about how he could save him and how much pain he has to go through. Ji-min begins to cry as he tells Seok-jin to get him out of here. They drive away from the hospital as nurses chase after them. They drive past a sign directing to the Grass Flower Arboretum, which causes Ji-min to panic and run out of the car. Seok-jin yells out before he goes back in time.[90]

April 11: Seok-jin abruptly stops the car, having been lost in thought to not have noticed the traffic light earlier. Students pass by as Seok-jin watches and smiles at them.

May 2: Jung-kook goes to Nam-joon's container and covers himself with garments. He recalls what happened at the motel. There he saw Yoon-gi standing on the bed as flames surrounded the entire room.

Jung-kook feels a sense of relief seeing him, but soon finds out that he has a fever. Nam-joon gives him medicine and tells him to sleep some more before they could talk. Jung-kook asks Nam-joon if he can become an adult like him, and Nam-joon doesn’t answer.[124]


May 19: Ji-min decides that he has to go to the Grass Flower Arboretum. He needs to stop lying to himself that what had happened there years ago didn't happen and that he would be able to stop having seizures.

Eventually, another bus comes in and Ji-min asks Yoon-gi if he could come with him.[125]

He recalls how he saw Tae-hyung's bruises back when he was at Nam-joon’s container[112] but didn't press on it. Ho-seok knows that in regards to problems with family, he probably has more wounds as he couldn't even recall his father and his mother left him at age 7. He knows how people say that they have to overcome their pains, but finds himself wondering why they had to go through them in the first place. They eventually arrive at Tae-hyung's place, and Tae-hyung tells Ho-seok that he can go alone. Ho-seok continues to walk with him but Tae-hyung tells him that he's fine as Ho-seok thinks there was no way Tae-hyung could be fine. Eventually, he retreats back, noting that both of their paths are narrow and they are both alone. Suddenly, Ho-seok's phone rings, leading him to look back to Tae-hyung's direction.[126] Tae-hyung attacks his father but is stopped by Ho-seok before he could hit him. Tae-hyung ends up injuring himself and his father leaves the room. Tae-hyung collapses but is caught by Ho-seok. He thinks about all the pent up rage against his father, but knows that in the end, the only one he wanted to kill was not his father but himself. Tae-hyung tells Ho-seok to go away who obliges. He ends himself looking at Nam-joon's phone number, wanting to tell him how he had killed his abusive father so many times in his head and now he had almost done it in reality. He feels lost and just wants to see Nam-joon.[127]


May 22: The boys are all walking towards their lodging from the beach when Nam-joon gets a call from his parents. He tells them how his younger brother could take care of himself and apologizes before ending. Nam-joon notes that it wasn't that he didn't care nor love his family, but it was that he just wanted to run away. But deep inside he knows that he truly can't. From far off, he notices Jung-kook who is unmoving just like him. He recalls the time when Jung-kook tells him that he wanted to be like him.[124] He didn't answer because he didn't know what to tell him, knowing that he himself isn't an adult at all. He didn't want to tell him that being an adult doesn't just mean growing older. Nam-joon wishes that the future will be kinder for Jung-kook, but couldn't promise he would be able to help him on that.[128] Later that day, Jung-kook gets into an accident. He looks at the moon as he struggles to cough. Just as his consciousness fades, he hears a voice telling him, "It’ll be more painful to live than to die. Do you still want to live?"[129]


Yoon-gi letting go of the girl's grip on him.

June 15: Ji-min informs Yoon-gi about Jung-kook's accident. Yoon-gi rushes to the hospital and passes by patients who are expressionless and dead-looking. He finds Jung-kook's room but ends up looking away because Jung-kook looked like the patients he passed by. Yoon-gi hears a voice telling him, "It’s all because of you…" and runs out of the hospital. He ends up getting himself drunk and stumbles around the street, bumping into everything without care. All he cares about is the music playing in his head. Someone grabs his hand, causing him to stop. However, he lets go.[130] He doesn't want anyone to come near him in fear of hurting them and himself.[131]

Ji-min colliding with the girl.

July 4: Ji-min is practicing a dance with someone else. However, he loses his flow and ends up colliding with her. Ji-min falls and his arm begins to bleed.[132] He suddenly gets flashbacks of the Grass Flower Arboretum and panics, heading to the bathroom to furiously wash off the blood.[133] He thought that he had already overcome it, but he didn't. As he washes the blood off his arm, he realises that he wasn't the only one who fell. Ji-min goes to check on his partner to find no one. He sees at a distance outside Ho-seok running while carrying the girl. Ji-min grabs an umbrella to catch up and give it to them but stops.[134] He realises that he couldn't do anything for falling and hurting someone just to run away. He tells himself that it wasn't okay before correcting that he is okay and that his injury isn’t serious.[135] Ho-seok arrives at the hospital. While waiting, the girl's bag falls to the floor.

Ji-min washing the blood off his arm.

As Ho-seok picks up the items, he finds a plane ticket. At that moment, the doctor calls for him. The doctor tells him that the girl only had a mild concussion and that she'll be alright. The girl wakes up shortly thereafter and meets back up with Ho-seok. She notices her ticket peeking out of her bag and Ho-seok tells her that they should go. Outside, it is still raining heavily. The girl was about to talk to Ho-seok but he interrupts, saying that he'll get an umbrella and runs off to the nearest convenience store. Ho-seok knows that the ticket was for the overseas dance team the girl had auditioned for before. He ran away because he didn't want to hear her say it, nor did he have the courage to congratulate her.[136]

Nam-joon with the hair tie.

July 13: Nam-joon is on a bus looking at the girl. He has known the girl for a month, although they haven't really talked to each other at all. He intends to give her a hair tie. He has always thought about what the girl's thoughts are, especially whenever she gets off the bus for her stop. Eventually, her stop grows near and passengers get off. However, the girl seems to have been asleep. Nam-joon contemplates waking her up but ends up not moving before the bus drives to the next stop. Soon, Nam-joon’s stop comes and he still debates whether or not to wake her up, knowing the possibility she'll wake up much far from her destination and get more stressed about it. In the end, he leaves the hair tie next to her and gets off without waking her up.[137][138]

July 17: Tae-hyung looks for the girl but finds no one. Although they never arranged to meet, he knows that the girl would somehow always pop up and follow him. He ends up at a wall where the girl did her first graffiti. Only now however, a large "X" is drawn over her drawing. Although he didn't witness it, Tae-hyung knows that "X" was done by the girl. However, he doesn't really know for sure as to why. He looks back to all those times they spent together. He feels as though the large "X" meant all the memories were fake. He feels upset, but doesn't know why. Tae-hyung ends up walking away, realising that the both of them were alone again.[139]


Jung-kook sees the bed empty.

July 26: Jung-kook picks up a flower from the hospital, planning to give it to the girl. However, when he reaches her hospital room, he finds it empty.[140] He recalls how they met, the girl suddenly appearing in front of him. He goes out of the hospital and finds the bench where they used to listen to music and the roof where they used to drink strawberry milk together. Jung-kook holds onto the flowers, now having no one to give it to.[141]

Seok-jin witnessing the girl's accident.

August 30: Seok-jin's girl crosses the street but ends up crashing.[142] Seok-jin asks about love, about when one falls in and out of love.

He thinks about turning back in time.[143]

A mirror breaks and brings Seok-jin back to April 11.[144] Later that day, Nam-joon is working at the gas station when a crumbled bill brushes against his face. The customers are laughing at him, and from the distance he sees Seok-jin. He wants to stand up against them but knows that he can't because he's just a part-timer at the gas station. Nam-joon bends his head low when he sees Seok-jin pick up the bill as the customers drive away. Seok-jin doesn't move nor speak.[145] Jung-kook climbs to the rooftop and stands on the edge. He is about to jump off when his phone rings, revealing to be Yoon-gi.[146] Jung-kook and Yoon-gi walk along the train tracks and arrive at Nam-joon's container, which was the fourth one from the end. Ho-seok had invited him to join him to meet up with Nam-joon and Tae-hyung. The two come inside, with Ho-seok surprised that Yoon-gi actually came. Soon thereafter, Nam-joon comes inside with Tae-hyung, whose shirt is torn during his chase with the police. Yoon-gi sits in the corner as he watches the others. Nam-joon gives Tae-hyung a T-shirt,[112] Ho-seok gives out burgers and drinks, and Jung-kook stands awkwardly. Yoon-gi notes how the scene looked like back in high school. He wonders where Seok-jin and Ji-min are. He feels himself at ease, even if it was his first time going to the container.[147]


April 28: Nam-joon talks about knowing something has been going on with Tae-hyung. He knows about the wounds in Tae-hyung's body and of his nightmares, yet Tae-hyung would act as if nothing was wrong. Nam-joon never asks Tae-hyung or tells him to let it out. It was because he wants Tae-hyung to tell it himself, but also because he feels like he isn't worthy to unload the burden for him. Nam-joon knows for himself that he's not a true adult nor older brother figure despite their praises. Tae-hyung wakes up from Nam-joon shaking him. He stares blankly as he lets himself cry. Eventually, Tae-hyung tells Nam-joon of his nightmare of Yoon-gi's death, Jung-kook's accident, and Nam-joon's fight. Tae-hyung tells Nam-joon to not go anywhere.[148]


May 2: Yoon-gi is surrounded by flames. He doesn't sense anything else from the room other than the pain he feels from the heat. Then, he suddenly remembers his father. He recalls how he and his father were different and couldn't understand each other. He realised how he wasn't really breaking free from his father, but didn't know where he was really breaking free from. Jung-kook arrives and calls out to Yoon-gi, who doesn't look up. Yoon-gi knows Jung-kook would be mad and sad at him, but still wants everything to end. He hears him shout something he couldn't understand.[124] Yoon-gi eventually raises his head. The last things he sees are the flaming room and Jung-kook's face before losing consciousness.[149]


Ji-min catches Ho-seok.

May 12: Ho-seok runs down the stairs after seeing who he thinks is his mother. As he goes down, he trips but Ji-min catches him before falling. He goes back to look for her before finding out it was a random woman with a boy. Ho-seok doesn't remember how he got out of that situation nor how Ji-min managed to be there. He realises that he probably knew it wasn't his mother in the first place, knowing that it had already been 10 years, and he can barely remember her face anymore. Ji-min follows Ho-seok. The two talk about the last time they had seen each other[50][51] and how Ji-min had been staying at the hospital since then. Ho-seok realises how he and Ji-min are alike, being trapped in their memories. Then, Ho-seok tells Ji-min and they should get out.[150]

May 15: Ji-min wakes up to find Ho-seok beside him. It's late and everyone else is asleep. Ho-seok gives Ji-min a T-shirt and tells him that everyone came to save him. Nam-joon is guarding, Yoon-gi is distracting the nurses, and Tae-hyung and Jung-kook are standing at the elevator. Ji-min had always dreamed of getting out of the hospital, but wondered if it was even a good idea. He had heard whispers about his mental illness and wondered if Ho-seok thought the same and found him weird. Ho-seok urges Ji-min to start moving when the sound of footsteps come. Ho-seok offers his hand to Ji-min.[151]


May 16: Ji-min is at Ho-seok's house, who tells him how it has the best and widest view of the city. Ji-min sees the train tracks with containers around where Nam-joon resides and the school everyone had gone to. He eventually finds his parents' house, realising he ran away from the hospital without a word. He knows the hospital would contact his parents and look for him. Ji-min doesn't have the courage to face them and that is why he followed Ho-seok to his house instead. He looks away from his parents' house, knowing someday he'll have to meet them and tell them he's not going back to the hospital. However, he feels scared that he couldn't handle it and have another seizure.[152]


May 22: Tae-hyung looks straight at Seok-jin, asking him if there way anything else he was hiding from them. Seok-jin just looks back at him with no response. Tae-hyung is about to press further when Nam-joon stops him. Tae-hyung snaps at Nam-joon, telling him why he's involving himself even if they weren't real brother. He recalls the call he had overheard,[113] knowing it's the reason why he's upset at Nam-joon. Seok-jin apologises to Tae-hyung and asks that they stop talking about it. Tae-hyung refuses, telling him that they should talk about everything and accusing him of hiding something. Nam-joon intervenes and tells them to talk outside, grabbing Tae-hyung's arm. Tae-hyung refuses, telling him that he doesn't have the right to stop him nor does he know anything. Nam-joon lets go of his arm, and Tae-hyung feels as if the bond they had together had snapped right then and there. A part of him wants Nam-joon to not have let go and instead scolded him like a real brother. Tae-hyung begins to laugh, mocking their relationship and how in the end they'll all be alone. Seok-jin then hits Tae-hyung.[153]


July 20: Nam-joon brushes through magazines in the library. He notices that the girl doesn't seem to come by anymore as different people come by at where the girl would've sat on. He's not particularly reading and ponders what even was he doing. Eventually the days of highschool comes back to him, and he wonders if he has ever grown. And such from that point Nam-joon decides to start over and go back to studying, something that he had given up, once again.[154]


July 26: Jung-kook is far from the hospital, having left the flowers at the bench. He recalls the locations he and the girl used to hang out at as well as the things they talked about. He had told the girl stories about him and the others. Earlier, Jung-kook had asked the nurses what happened to the girl but didn't get any answers. Jung-kook realises all he really talked about was his friends. He thinks that one day, even his friends would be gone too. Jung-kook recalls his accident[129] and how the car felt familiar. He doesn't want to jump into conclusions but still has it in mind.[155]


July 28: Ji-min waits for the train to stop so that he can fully practice alone. Whenever he practices with others, he's more drawn to see the flaws of his dancing, which is why he keeps practicing alone. He notes, however, that whenever he practices alone this way, all his fear and insecurities disappear. He'd always known he's weak and powerless, but whenever he dances, all he could think about is the movement. Whenever he dances, he feels as if all his feelings and thoughts gets expressed through it, and with that, he could feel himself liking himself a bit more.[156]


July 29: Yoon-gi keeps thinking about the song he had made with the girl. He recalls the time he had picked up the half-burnt key but then threw it away with his first declaration to give up on playing the piano.[45][46] However, he had regretted that decision and tried to look for it, only to find that he really had lost the key. Yoon-gi talks about how many times he tried to give up on music, but knows that in the end he'll end up coming back to it. He knows music brings up many conflicting emotions both good and bad. Then, he feels as though he wants to play the piano again. He wants to finish the song he had made with the girl, feeling sure that this time he'd be able to.[157]


August 3: Seok-jin is at their old secret hideout with the others. He suddenly flashes back to the events that happened in school and wanting to leave. However, Tae-hyung doesn't let him and keeps on asking him to remember. He thinks about how the memory Tae-hyung wants him to remember is meaningless, and how he thinks memories are ones that take root deep inside a person. With this thought, all his memories of the hideout are bad ones. Tae-hyung and Seok-jin end up in a fight when Seok-jin stumbles and falls. As he falls, he knocks down what was thought to be a wall to reveal an extended version of the classroom with a lone cabinet in the center. Nam-joon opens the cabinet and picks up the notebook inside. When he opens the first page, Seok-jin finds the name of his father. He snatches the notebook from Nam-joon and begins to read what's inside. Inside the notebook are accounts of his father's time in high school with his friends. Some of the pages are covered by what seems to be bloodstains. Seok-jin finds that his father experienced the same mistakes he had. The notebook also counts his father's failures, and that he had given up and betrayed his friends. It turns night as everyone else falls asleep. Seok-jin notices faint letters over the smeared black ink pages. He realises the notebook held more memories than what was merely written. That the ones that are hidden or blank are the ones his father decided to forget. That the notebook contains Seok-jin's father's map of his bent soul. Seok-jin begins to cry as he closes the notebook. He looks back to his friends and thinks that they were meant to come back to their hideout. He realises that he had to come here to understand all his mistakes and suffering, and that he is able to the the first step in finding the map of his soul.[158]


August 11: Tae-hyung walks past the graffiti marked with "X" on.[139] He notices the words "It's not your fault" below it. He believes it was written by the girl, telling him that her leaving wasn't his fault and that he shouldn't blame himself. He ends up back at home where his father is beating his sister back up. Tae-hyung intervenes and holds his father tight. He knows that even if he is scared, nothing will change if he doesn't do anything. He concludes that he's not like his father, and that he will protect his family.[159]


August 13: Ho-seok watches Ji-min and his friend dance together. Ever since his ankle got injured, he only ended up watching by, but soon came to a realisation that he is still dancing with them in an essence. He recalls that whenever he dances with Ji-min, he always found a lot of mistakes and would correct them one by one. However, when he watches Ji-min perform, he realises that the imperfections of Ji-min's dance is what makes him unique and gives off his own vibe. The dance ends and Ho-seok gives a thumbs up. He recalls how the girl will have to go overseas soon. He wonders why he thought she looked like his mother when he can't even remember her face. Ho-seok's heart begins to ache.[160]


August 30: Seok-jin meets up with the girl and gives back her diary. He had thought that if he wanted to be a good person, he should follow all the things in her diary. But it became scary for him because of how much he would try to hide his real self. Seok-jin comes to a realisation that the only way to go forward is to be true to himself. He walks away from the girl and looks at the window. He looks over the flawed parts of his face and laughs.[161]

Note: Some notes in this book are the same as in the notes during the "Love Yourself" era.


Year 22


April 11: Tae-hyung wakes up from a nightmare at dawn. He was in the container town enveloped in flames. There were screaming, shattering, and crying. There, he found Nam-joon laying on the ground with blood surrounding him. Someone told him that he's dead. Tae-hyung walks out of his apartment room and to the container town himself. He finds Nam-joon's container, realising that he must be asleep and that his nightmare is indeed just a nightmare.[162] Later that day, Seok-jin abruptly stops the car, having been lost in thought to not have noticed the traffic light earlier. Students pass by as Seok-jin watches and smiles at them. He knows what he has to do, yet it didn't mean he wasn't afraid. He wonders if he could really save everyone despite the many attempts. He drives towards the gas station while having these thoughts. As Seok-jin sees Nam-joon, he takes a deep breath and pictures everyone in his mind. Even if it was less than a one percent chance, he won't give up. He then approaches Nam-joon.[123][163] Nam-joon is working at the gas station when a crumbled bill brushes against his face. The customers are laughing at him, and from the distance he sees Seok-jin. He wants to stand up against them but knows that he can't because he's just a part-timer at the gas station. Nam-joon bends his head low when he sees Seok-jin pick up the bill as the customers drive away. Seok-jin doesn't move nor speak.[145][164] Later on, Jung-kook bumps into some thugs on purpose, leading him to get beaten up. The thugs call Jung-kook crazy for laughing while getting beaten up and start hitting him more. He is eventually left on the ground as he recalls how his step-brother would kick him, the rest of his new family would not acknowledge his existence, and his mother would act indifferent. Jung-kook climbs to the rooftop and stands on the edge.[111] He is about to jump off when his phone rings, revealing to be Yoon-gi.[146][165] Jung-kook and Yoon-gi walk along the train tracks and arrive at Nam-joon's container, which was the fourth one from the end. Ho-seok had invited him to join him to meet up with Nam-joon and Tae-hyung. The two come inside, with Ho-seok surprised that Yoon-gi actually came. Soon thereafter, Nam-joon comes inside with Tae-hyung, whose shirt is torn during his chase with the police. Yoon-gi sits in the corner as he watches the others. Nam-joon gives Tae-hyung a T-shirt,[112] Ho-seok gives out burgers and drinks, and Jung-kook stands awkwardly. Yoon-gi notes how the scene looked like back in high school. He wonders where Seok-jin and Ji-min are. He feels himself at ease, even if it was his first time going to the container.[147] However, his easiness doesn't last for long as he suddenly has the urge to get out. He remembers how much fun they had together in school, and realises that just like then, their happy moments would come to an end. Yoon-gi wonders if there is any point to be feeling good.[166] Seok-jin watches the others in the container from the distance. He wonders what everyone else looks like and what they're talking about. He knows he can't meet them yet, but there will come a day where they can all laugh and be together again. Seok-jin drives away.[167]


April 27: Ji-min gets sent from the psychiatric ward to the surgery ward after getting into a fight with an escaping patient.[168]


April 28: Nam-joon talks about knowing something has been going on with Tae-hyung. He knows about the wounds in Tae-hyung's body and of his nightmares, yet Tae-hyung would act as if nothing was wrong. Nam-joon never asks Tae-hyung or tells him to let it out. It was because he wants Tae-hyung to tell it himself, but also because he feels like he isn't worthy to unload the burden for him. Nam-joon knows for himself that he's not a true adult nor older brother figure despite their praises. Tae-hyung wakes up from Nam-joon shaking him. He stares blankly as he lets himself cry. Eventually, Tae-hyung tells Nam-joon of his nightmare of Yoon-gi's death, Jung-kook's accident, and Nam-joon's fight. Tae-hyung tells Nam-joon to not go anywhere.[145] Nam-joon remembers the face of the "Tae-hyung" he met back then. He can't bring himself to answer and reassure Tae-hyung that he's not going anywhere.[169]


Between April 29~May 1: Seok-jin ponders about his plan to save everyone. He finds that Yoon-gi was someone he had a hard time figuring it out because he changes his location and time often. He thinks about why it was that case and concludes it's because Yoon-gi's conflict is from within him. Seok-jin watches Yoon-gi stagger on until he reaches his workroom. There, a bird flies through Yoon-gi's room, injuring itself as it flew through a broken window. Yoon-gi is standing in the middle of the room with a lighter while the room reeks of gasoline. Yoon-gi watches the bird flop around until eventually going down to pick up the bird. Later that night, Seok-jin goes inside and finds papers lying around. He finds the bird behind the piano, who looked petrified when Seok-jin goes near. Seok-jin wonders how the bird entrusted its life to Yoon-gi, and that this bird is how Yoon-gi stopped himself from starting another fire.[170]


Jung-kook saving Yoon-gi from the fire.

May 2: Seok-jin has a realisation how he could save Yoon-gi by creating a situation himself. He realises he needs to bring in someone who shares the same scars and desires as Yoon-gi. He calls back to the time they went to the beach together[34]. He realises that Jung-kook had the same look in his eyes as Yoon-gi. Seok-jin then indirectly leads Jung-kook to Yoon-gi's workroom. Jung-kook goes inside Yoon-gi's workroom and about ten minutes later, Yoon-gi stumbles out of the building and goes towards a motel. Jung-kook runs out soon after, trying to look for Yoon-gi. Seok-jin drops a tissue with bloodstains near the motel Yoon-gi went in as a clue for Jung-kook. Jung-kook finds it and goes inside.[170] Yoon-gi is surrounded by flames. He doesn't sense anything else from the room other than the pain he feels from the heat. Then, he suddenly remembers his father. He recalls how he and his father were different and couldn't understand each other. He realised how he wasn't really breaking free from his father, but didn't know where he was really breaking free from. Jung-kook arrives and calls out to Yoon-gi, who doesn't look up. Yoon-gi knows Jung-kook would be mad and sad at him, but still wants everything to end. He hears him shout something he couldn't understand. Yoon-gi eventually raises his head. The last things he sees are the flaming room and Jung-kook's face before losing consciousness.[149][171] Jung-kook drags Yoon-gi out of the motel.[172] Jung-kook goes to Nam-joon's container and covers himself with garments. He recalls what happened at the motel. There he saw Yoon-gi standing on the bed as flames surrounded the entire room. He couldn’t muster up what else to say other than "I thought we were all going to the sea together." Jung-kook wakes up from being shaken by Nam-joon, who asks him if he had a bad dream. Jung-kook feels a sense of relief seeing him, but soon finds out that he has a fever. Nam-joon gives him medicine and tells him to sleep some more before they could talk. Jung-kook asks Nam-joon if he can become an adult like him, and Nam-joon doesn’t answer.[124][173]

May 10: Ho-seok notes how he always dreams of his mother whenever he collapses. The dreams featured him as a kid and his mother on a bus. He would always call out to her, and once she turns her head, Ho-seok wakes up. Ho-seok had only realised his mother left him when he's 20. Ho-seok collapses on the bridge,[73][74] dreams of the same bus scene, and wakes up in a six-person hospital room.[174] Later that night, Ho-seok has a bad dream and Ji-min, not knowing it was Ho-seok wakes up from the groaning. Ji-min taps his shoulder and tells him that it's okay and that it's all a dream.[168]


Ho-seok and Ji-min at the hospital.

May 11: Ji-min reminisces how he used to try to escape but had soon given up. It went to the point where the nurses don't come for him even if he's near the exit, knowing to Ji-min himself that he has an invisible line he doesn't cross just a few steps away from the door. Ji-min finds out that the person who was groaning last night was Ho-seok. He's not sure whether to be glad or not. Ho-seok eats his meal while Ji-min doesn't, who walks out of the room and around the ward. Ho-seok follows and loses track of him. Eventually, Ji-min sees the others visit Ho-seok, noting how they haven't changed. Later on, Ho-seok finds Ji-min and offers him a piece of bread since he hadn't eaten all day. Ji-min takes it and ends up confessing to Ho-seok about his time in the hospital, his dangerous seizures, and how he won't be discharged anytime soon. Ho-seok tells him that he's exaggerating, asking if it meant his narcolepsy is dangerous too. He takes a bite of the bread he gave Ji-min, asking if he wanted it back. Ho-seok continues on to say how both seizures and narcolepsy aren't infectious. Ji-min thinks about how Ho-seok didn't change.[175]

May 12: Ho-seok runs down the stairs after seeing who he thinks is his mother. Meanwhile, Ji-min hears someone call out to him from the stairs and goes there. As he goes down, he trips but Ji-min, who manages to arrive there right on time, catches him before falling. He goes back to look for her before finding out it was a random woman with a boy. Ho-seok doesn't remember how he got out of that situation nor how Ji-min managed to be there. He realises that he probably knew it wasn't his mother in the first place, knowing that it had already been 10 years, and he can barely remember her face anymore. Ji-min follows Ho-seok. The two talk about the last time they had seen each other[50][51] and how Ji-min had been staying at the hospital since then. Ho-seok realises how he and Ji-min are alike, being trapped in their memories. Then, Ho-seok tells Ji-min and they should get out.[150][176] Ji-min, however, tells him that he's going back to the psychiatric ward in a few days. Later on, Ho-seok gets discharged and leaves the hospital, with Ji-min 5 steps away from the exit watching him go. As Ji-min was about to turn back, a patient runs past him, causing Ji-min to fall down and cross the invisible line. He stands up and takes one more step towards the exit, before turning around and going back to his room.[177]


Ji-min escaping the hospital.

May 15: Ji-min is packing up his things to prepare himself in moving back to the psychiatric ward. He soon falls asleep, and when he wakes up, he finds Ho-seok besides his bed giving him a T-shirt. Ho-seok tells him that they all came together and offers his hand. Ji-min hesitates, knowing that he doesn't know how he'll be able to survive even when he escapes. However, he grabs his hand and they sneak past the nurses. They go to the elevator and find Nam-joon and Seok-jin. They then reach the lounge and in the lounge were Tae-hyung, Jung-kook, and Yoon-gi, alongside snacks and cans of soda. As Ji-min was about to take a sip, a nurse comes in and asks what they were doing. Yoon-gi tells the nurse that they're having a birthday party. The nurse doesn't buy it, noting that not all of them are their patients. Suddenly, they all make a run for it, with Ji-min still holding the T-shirt on his hand.[178] As they run, Ji-min suddenly slows his pace as he begins to wonder if it was truly okay for him to escape. A voice, however, tells him to keep on running and suddenly he crosses over the line. Ji-min feels something inside him as if jumping over a cliff. He puts on his the T-shirt and eventually pushes the door.[179] Ji-min feels like crying as his body collided with the outside air.[177]

May 16: Ji-min is at Ho-seok's house, who tells him how it has the best and widest view of the city. Ji-min sees the train tracks with containers around where Nam-joon resides and the school everyone had gone to. He eventually finds his parents' house, realising he ran away from the hospital without a word. He knows the hospital would contact his parents and look for him. Ji-min doesn't have the courage to face them and that is why he followed Ho-seok to his house instead. He looks away from his parents' house, knowing someday he'll have to meet them and tell them he's not going back to the hospital.[152] Ho-seok stands by beside him.[180] He thinks about how he could be his most honest self at home. In his home, he could scream, dance like crazy, or weep at night. But he never had collapsed from narcolepsy at home. He watches Ji-min watch over the buildings and wonder if he's finding for his home, thinking it was instinct for someone to do so. Ho-seok wants to ask why Ji-min didn't go home, but decides not to, having an idea based on what he remembers of Ji-min's mother.[50][51] He finds that he doesn't actually bring up to ask his friends out of having an idea on the answer and to avoid awkwardness. He'd always wonder about everyone whenever they pass by the burger joint. Ho-seok asks Ji-min if he had found his home. Ji-min nods. Ho-seok then directs Ji-min to his orphanage. Ji-min looks as if he was wondering why Ho-seok is telling him this. Ho-seok then confesses to Ji-min that his narcolepsy is fake. He feels as though the reason why he can't bring up to ask the others about their problems is that he himself can't be honest to them either. Ho-seok continues, telling him that he isn't doing it on purpose and that his brain is making him ignore that there's a way for him to be okay. Ji-min asks if he's okay now. Ho-seok sees Ji-min's eyes, which was neither criticizing nor sympathizing. He answers Ji-min, telling him that he doesn't know but he looks forward to the day that he is okay. He and Ji-min laughs.[181]


May 19: Ji-min decides that he has to go to the Grass Flower Arboretum. He needs to stop lying to himself that what had happened there years ago didn't happen and that he would be able to stop having seizures. However, every time the bus for the arboretum would arrive, he ends up not going. Eventually, Yoon-gi comes up beside him after he misses the third bus. Yoon-gi says that he was bored and asks Ji-min what he was doing at the bus stop. Ji-min lowers his head and ponders to himself about the answer. He knows that in the end, he is still afraid. He notices how relaxed Yoon-gi is. Yoon-gi tells him about how nice the weather is, and Ji-min realises that he had been worrying too much to not have noticed how nice the weather is indeed. Eventually, another bus comes in and Ji-min asks Yoon-gi if he could come with him.[125][182]


Ho-seok and Tae-hyung at Tae-hyung's house.

May 20: Ho-seok fetches Tae-hyung from the police station. On their way to Tae-hyung's house, Ho-seok wonders why his house was so close to the police station. Ho-seok asks Tae-hyung if he was hungry, but Tae-hyung declines. Ho-seok thinks about how much suffering Tae-hyung must be going through. He recalls how he saw Tae-hyung's bruises back when he was at Nam-joon’s container[112] but didn't press on it. Ho-seok knows that in regards to problems with family, he probably has more wounds as he couldn't even recall his father and his mother left him at age 7. He knows how people say that they have to overcome their pains, but finds himself wondering why they had to go through them in the first place. They eventually arrive at Tae-hyung's place, and Tae-hyung tells Ho-seok that he can go alone. Ho-seok continues to walk with him but Tae-hyung tells him that he's fine as Ho-seok thinks there was no way Tae-hyung could be fine. Eventually, he retreats back, noting that both of their paths are narrow and they are both alone.[126][183] Meanwhile, Seok-jin has been watching Ho-seok and Tae-hyung from afar. As Tae-hyung is about to turn the doorknob, Seok-jin calls Ho-seok. Seok-jin tells him if he could call Tae-hyung, and Ho-seok replies that he was just with him. Seok-jin then tells Ho-seok to invite Tae-hyung in going to the sea. Ho-seok laughs and tells Seok-jin that Tae-hyung would come but Seok-jin insists on asking him to make sure. Ho-seok goes into Tae-hyung's house.[184] Tae-hyung attacks his father but is stopped by Ho-seok before he could hit him. Tae-hyung ends up injuring himself and his father leaves the room. Tae-hyung collapses but is caught by Ho-seok.[185] He thinks about all the pent up rage against his father, but knows that in the end, the only one he wanted to kill was not his father but himself. Tae-hyung tells Ho-seok to go away who obliges. He ends himself looking at Nam-joon's phone number, wanting to tell him how he had killed his abusive father so many times in his head and now he had almost done it in reality. He feels lost and just wants to see Nam-joon.[127][186]
May 22: Jung-kook gets woken up in the car, with everyone having reached the sea and playing on the beach. Jung-kook steps out when wind passes by as dust and sand blow. Jung-kook's eyes sting from the sand, and Ho-seok tells him to not rub it. Jung-kook goes to blink continuously instead and begins to cry. The others laugh at him. He begins to mockingly chase the others until it turned into a full race. Eventually, they all calm down and lie on the sand. Nam-joon notes how this is exactly like last time, and Jung-kook replies the date of it being June 12, much to everyone's surprise. He had sometimes looked at the photo they took on that day, not telling anyone how the others felt like his real brothers. Jung-kook is about to express his gratitude to the others but finds himself at a loss on what to say.

Tae-hyung watching Seok-jin on the observatory.

They end up playing around again. Jung-kook walks up to Tae-hyung, who was sitting alone. Tae-hyung asks Jung-kook about the observatory, whether or not it was there the last time. Jung-kook replies with a no when Seok-jin comes up and taps Jung-kook on the shoulder, telling him that they should go.[187] Seok-jin goes up to the observatory. Everyone waves at him except for Tae-hyung,[188] who finds the scene similar to his dream, the only difference is that it was him who was on the observatory wherein he jumps off of it.[189] Suddenly, the wound on his palm begins to hurt. Although it healed quickly, there were times where it would suddenly hurt. Tae-hyung feels as if he's being punished for his wrongdoings.[190] The boys are all walking towards their lodging from the beach when Nam-joon gets a call from his parents. He tells them how his younger brother could take care of himself and apologizes before ending. Nam-joon notes that it wasn't that he didn't care nor love his family, but it was that he just wanted to run away. But deep inside he knows that he truly can't. From far off, he notices Jung-kook who is unmoving just like him. He recalls the time when Jung-kook tells him that he wanted to be like him.[124] He didn't answer because he didn't know what to tell him, knowing that he himself isn't an adult at all. He didn't want to tell him that being an adult doesn't just mean growing older. Nam-joon wishes that the future will be kinder for Jung-kook, but couldn't promise he would be able to help him on that.[128][191] The boys reach their lodging as everyone chatters and laughs away. Seok-jin watches them, feeling uneasy because he has something to confess. However, he knows he has to tell them if he still wants to look at his friends in the face. When dinner is almost over, he calls out the attention of the others. However, only Tae-hyung looks back at him. He remembers how a few days ago, Tae-hyung asked him about the dreams he's been having, but Seok-jin doesn't answer. Although he doesn't know why Tae-hyung has those dreams, he knows he couldn't tell him the truth, the truth that his dreams were other realities. He calls out for them again and this time everyone listens. As Seok-jin is about to confess something about highschool, Tae-hyung butts in, asking him if it's about him ratting them out to the principal[38][39] or about Yoon-gi's expulsion that resulted in it.[43][44]

Seok-jin and Tae-hyung fighting.

Nam-joon scolds Tae-hyung as Seok-jin bends his head low and apologises.[192] Tae-hyung looks straight at Seok-jin, asking him if there way anything else he was hiding from them. Seok-jin just looks back at him with no response. Tae-hyung is about to press further when Nam-joon stops him. Tae-hyung snaps at Nam-joon, telling him why he's involving himself even if they weren't real brother. He recalls the call he had overheard,[113] knowing it's the reason why he's upset at Nam-joon. Seok-jin apologises to Tae-hyung and asks that they stop talking about it. Tae-hyung refuses, telling him that they should talk about everything and accusing him of hiding something. Nam-joon intervenes and tells them to talk outside, grabbing Tae-hyung's arm. Tae-hyung refuses, telling him that he doesn't have the right to stop him nor does he know anything. Nam-joon lets go of his arm, and Tae-hyung feels as if the bond they had together had snapped right then and there. A part of him wants Nam-joon to not have let go and instead scolded him like a real brother. Tae-hyung begins to laugh, mocking their relationship and how in the end they'll all be alone. Seok-jin then hits Tae-hyung.[153][193] The three leave the lodging soon, and Ho-seok tells the remaining ones that they should leave too. Ji-min looks back at the observatory, realising that this spot was the same spot they all went and shouted their dreams amidst the sound of construction.[34]

Jung-kook getting hit.

Ji-min asks Jung-kook if this was the same spot, but Jung-kook doesn't hear him. Ji-min realises that even if Jung-kook always just tags along, he still has his own path. He reaches the intersection where going left would lead to the train station and going right would lead to the bus station to his home. He knows he can't run away forever and tell the truth to his parents. Ho-seok tells him to hurry up but Ji-min tells him that he's going home and turns right.[194]Later that day, Jung-kook gets into an accident. He looks at the moon as he struggles to cough. Just as his consciousness fades, he hears a voice telling him, "It’ll be more painful to live than to die. Do you still want to live?"[129][195]

June 13: Seok-jin notes how no one contacted each other since they last saw each other at the sea. He recalls the fight that transpired between him and Tae-hyung and how everyone left in the end. He passes by the gas station where Nam-joon works at, thinking about how one day they would all come together and be happy again. Just then, Ho-seok calls Seok-jin to tell him that Jung-kook got into a car accident the night they separated.[114][196] At the hospital, Jung-kook finds Ho-seok and Ji-min standing beside his bed. Ji-min asks if he's alright, and Jung-kook lies that he's not hurt. Ho-seok asks why he didn't call them, and Jung-kook can't bring himself to answer. He knows he hadn't called because his mind was blank and is in unbearable pain. Even when the pain subsided, he still has images flash that he's not sure whether or not it actually happened. Jung-kook tries to smile even though he was about to cry.[197] Ho-seok goes out of the room, feeling himself crying. He recalls how he initially found out about Jung-kook's accident, which is from students talking about him in the burger joint. He'd messaged the others about it but no one replied for a while, wondering what their friendship meant to each other. He feels mad for letting Jung-kook walk alone during the night of his accident. When Ho-seok sees that four other people hadn't seen the message, he replies with, "This is disappointing." Ho-seok goes back into the room to find Ji-min and Jung-kook talking about Ji-min's recent achievement of joining a dance crew. Tae-hyung calls Ho-seok, and Ho-seok asks Tae-hyung why he didn't see the message sooner. Tae-hyung replies in a croaky voice, as if he had been crying.[198] He asks how Jung-kook is, which were the only words he could muster to say. Ho-seok hands the phone to Jung-kook, who tells Tae-hyung that he's fine. Tae-hyung then tells Jung-kook that he's going to the hospital. However, he ends up not going inside after seeing Nam-joon and Seok-jin. He hears Nam-joon saying that he hasn't changed, and Tae-hyung thinks that even he hasn't changed at all either. However, he notes that there had been one change since the fight at the beach, and that's about how his dreams changed. This time, he dreams of Seok-jin with a bunch of blue flowers crying. The elevator door opens and Tae-hyung goes inside, not ready to meet Seok-jin and Nam-joon yet.[199] Nam-joon talks with Jung-kook about mundane things, wondering how he didn't ask about the fight that night. Likewise, he didn't take the initiative to tell Jung-kook about the fight. Nam-joon and Seok-jin leave the hospital as Seok-jin asks Nam-joon if he's okay since he never said a word while they went back. Nam-joon apologizes and the two part ways near the gas station. Nam-joon goes to the container, having not been there since the fight and choosing to stay at the gas station's room. However, he knows the container was where Tae-hyung would stay in away from his father. But he never came by knowing that he's afraid to talk to Tae-hyung. He knows he lies about being okay, knowing that everything that happened that night wasn't okay and Jung-kook's accident might've not happened if the fight didn't occur. But he still talked to Jung-kook as if everything was okay. He notes how he hasn't changed in terms of hesitating to take the initiative.[200]


June 14: Yoon-gi shows his work to his partner, who says that it's really nice. She begins to harmonize with the piano using her guitar. Hours later, Yoon-gi's partner reminds him to perform with him at the hospital the next day in the morning.[201]


June 15: Yoon-gi has a dream where he follows a faint whistling sound amongst a fog. He reached a garden of an apartment complex and finds the half-burnt piano key. Before he could grab the key, everything disappeared and suddenly it gets replace with him at the workroom. He found Jung-kook in front of the piano saying something which made him laugh. He couldn't recall when that happened, but the scene itself was imprinted on his memory. Yoon-gi continuously has different memories play before he wakes up from a loud banging.

Yoon-gi's phone rings.

Yoon-gi opens the door but finds no one. He tries to find out the time only to see his phone is dead and decides to charge it. He lays down on the couch and recalls the events that transpired the past few weeks. He had been working with a partner. His partner would be straightforward and would make him eat, sleep, and stop smoking. Yoon-gi couldn't argue back knowing that the girl's music was impressive and her evaluations of his music were accurate. This led Yoon-gi to become more addicted to making music that he hadn't done anything else. Yoon-gi's phone powered up again, not finding calls from his partner. Minutes later however, Ji-min calls him to inform him about Jung-kook.[202] He suddenly recalls a memory of his mother in his dream saying, "If you hadn't been born..." Yoon-gi rushes to the hospital and passes by patients who are expressionless and dead-looking. He finds Jung-kook's room but ends up looking away because Jung-kook looked like the patients he passed by. Yoon-gi hears a voice telling him, "It’s all because of you…" and runs out of the hospital. He ends up getting himself drunk and stumbles around the street, bumping into everything without care. All he cares about is the music playing in his head. Someone grabs his hand, causing him to stop. However, he lets go.[203] He doesn't want anyone to come near him in fear of hurting them and himself.[131][201]

Jung-kook finds the lighter.

Jung-kook wakes up from a noise, having had a nightmare he can't recall much anymore. It was of the night of his accident playing in the style of a black and white CCTV. He goes out of the room, using crutches for the first time, and sits by on a bench to draw. The doctor comes and tells him that his recovery is a miracle. Then, a girl sits by next to him, telling him that he should be good for the rest of his life. The girl kept asking Jung-kook questions as he draws his dream. Then, a familiar song plays from the distance, a song Yoon-gi had always played in his workroom. Jung-kook follows the sound and finds someone playing, with a lighter labeled YK hanging on the guitar.[204] [205]

花樣年華 The Notes in MAP OF THE SOUL : PERSONA


Year 22


April 11: Tae-hyung has a dream of Seok-jin for the first time after seeing him since Year 20. He recreates Seok-jin's face with black spraypaint, but stops as he is about to draw the pupils. He realises he doesn't know how he could do the pupils because the ones he saw in his dreams were cold, an expression Tae-hyung had never seen in Seok-jin's face until that dream. Tae-hyung recalls how Seok-jin watched terrible events with the expressionless face, knowing that it wasn't the Seok-jin he knew. He doesn't know why he had such a dream. As he ponders, the police comes after him.[230]


April 30: Tae-hyung spots Seok-jin sitting his car, wearing the same expression he had seen in his dream.[230] He finds Jung-kook running with an urgent expression as Seok-jin comes out of his car in frustration. Seok-jin then drops something as he looks at Jung-kook's direction.[231] Amidst this, Yoon-gi starts a fire in his room.[232]


May 2: Yoon-gi is at the hospital recovering. The doctor takes off the gauze to reveal burn marks. As the doctor changes the dressing, blood oozes out and Yoon-gi compares it to the fire. The doctor tells him that the blood is a good sign of new cells generating. Yoon-gi wonders why something needs to die for new things to sprout and if the same thing would happen when it comes to him dying that day. He looks back at the bloodstain, whether him thinking it's fire or the doctor thinking it's regeneration is the right way to put it.[232]


May 10: Ho-seok finds out that the aunt who had nursed him since he was a child had gotten sick. He then rushes to her house. He finds her bedridden yet laughing despite her circumstances. Ho-seok walks out before the two manage to make eye contact. He ends up walking along the bridge. A bus passes by, reminding him of his mother. He suddenly thinks about how both his mother and his aunt left him. Ho-seok collapses.[233][73][74]


May 29: Ji-min is at an academy not paying attention to the teacher. He notes how things got tougher even after leaving the hospital. His mother wants him to still finish up his studies and recommends him to go to a GED school. Ji-min doesn't want to go to an academy because it's burdensome. More than that, he doesn't want to talk to strangers who would ask him why he's still studying, afraid to bring back the memories he had while in high school.[234]


May 30: Seok-jin is trying to look for the map of the soul, which was his sole hint. He had looked through various bookstores and bibliographies through countless loops but found nothing. He is in a bookstore which felt familiar, but only because it was probably because it looked similar to one he had gome previously. He goes back to his car, not knowing where to go next.[235]


Seok-jin at his father's study.

June 4: Seok-jin talks about the Raft of Medusa painting that hangs over his father's study. He recalls that as a kid he used to be scared of that painting. But instead, the one he's scared of more now is the "inner room," an extension of his father's study that could be accessed within an unlocked door. Inside is where his father collects his thoughts, with the things inside being things that date back from his father's high school days. Seok-jin has gone there only once and felt scared by it due to how all seemed lacking of emotion besides the carelessly stacked boxes. Although he wasn't scolded for coming there, he never dared to go inside ever again.[236]

June 12: Nam-joon and Tae-hyung head out to the village Nam-joon lived in before coming back to Songju. There, Nam-joon tells Tae-hyung of the time he spent in the village[60], excluding some of the details such as how he called a friend of his there "Tae-hyung". They go towards the slope where "Tae-hyung" passed away, and Tae-hyung tells Nam-joon that they shouldn't die. Eventually, Nam-joon tells Tae-hyung to talk about something Tae-hyung wanted to ask about back then at the beach, and that whatever it is they could figure it out together.[237]


June 15: Nam-joon talks about a boy named Song Woo-chang who he had first met two months ago. He had always seen him play around but noted how he always wore the same clothes. Eventually, as he leaves the gas station today, he sees Woo-chang again. He plans to ignore him and eat some ramyeon and sleep. However, he knows he only has one pack of ramyeon left and he wasn't in the mood to stock more. In the end, he walks to Woo-chang and offers him his last ramyeon.[238]


June 23: Yoon-gi gets invited to a group chat including everyone but Seok-jin and Jung-kook. There, Tae-hyung asks everyone what the map of the soul is. They find out that Ji-min crossed paths with Seok-jin at the hospital and asked him the same thing while the same happens to Nam-joon, who tells them apparently the map of the soul would end everything. Yoon-gi notes that everyone agrees Seok-jin is acting strange, but that maybe finding whatever the map of the soul is would help. He asks why Jung-kook isn't in the chat, and Ji-min tells him it's because Jung-kook is still recovering. Yoon-gi accepts the answer, wanting to let Jung-kook rest.[239]


July 24: Ji-min arrives first at the container everyone intends to go to. There, he thinks about something he wants to ask Seok-jin when he arrives. He wonders where everyone went seeing how late they are. He writes, "Congratulations, Jung-kook" on a piece of paper and sticks it to the wall. Eventually while waiting, Ji-min looks back to when he escaped out of the hospital. He wonders if, like him, Seok-jin also felt trapped. They had found some little hints he hopes could help. As he thinks of this, Yoon-gi arrives.[240] Later on, the others arrive. Jung-kook sees the "Congratulations, Jung-kook" but doesn't feel the atmosphere that seems like that. Seok-jin goes out of the container, followed by Tae-hyung and eventually the rest. He sees them talking to Seok-jin who doesn't seem to pay much attention before Seok-jin inevitably leaves. He notices the car bumpers that seem to signify an accident, leading him to recall the night of his accident. Jung-kook's leg begins to ache as he notices how the others kept talking outside the container.[241]


July 26: Jung-kook hops onto a bus stop and goes to the location of his accident, he tries to recall the events that laid out there as he lays himself on the road where he got hit, knowing how he could get another accident right then and there even if it was a quiet street at the time. He feels as though he can't trust the others, and begins to wonder if there's anyone else he could trust then.[242]

Year 22


April 11: Seok-jin wakes up, recalling the events of the previous loop dated September 30. He remembers seeing Nam-joon's dead body amidst the fire in container town. He ponders how many more ways could he save Nam-joon without feeling afraid nor impatient. Even after countless loops, Seok-jin still hasn't figured out what the map of the soul is, which was something that he needed to find to end everything. When he asked what the map of the soul is, the voice told him that hints come at a cost. Seok-jin drives towards the gas station. The only thing in his mind is to stop the accident on September 30. He'd learned from the many loops that surviving and getting to escape the loop is more important than saving everyone.[243]


Jung-kook having his nightmare.

June 13: Yoon-gi, currently drunk, recalls the words of Jung-kook back then. Jung-kook had told him that he likes Yoon-gi's music and that his music makes him cry. Jung-kook wanted to die several times, but listening to Yoon-gi's music made him want to live. He compared Yoon-gi's music to his own heart. Yoon-gi lies on the floor as he continues to think about Jung-kook's words.[244] Meanwhile, Jung-kook has a dream. In his dream, Jung-kook is floating above the hospital bed while looking at another Jung-kook asleep in the bed. When their eyes meet, he suddenly has his perspective changed to the one on the bed. He suddenly sees his accident. The headlights turned into the moon, then into green and blue orbs of light. He then sees the other him floating and his perspective keeps changing until he feels nauseated. Eventually, Jung-kook wakes up with a scream. He remembers what the voice told him during his accident.[129] His mother calls the doctor who tells him that he's recovering quickly since he had almost no bleeding, just bruises and fractures. Jung-kook asks the doctor who hit him in his accident.[245]

July 18: Nam-joon and Tae-hyung have been looking around the rooftop of buildings in Songju for the last two week. Their only hint comes from Tae-hyung's dream of a can of coffee and a four-leaf clover. Nam-joon notes how it has been raining for a few days, and that eventually, they gave up on bringing umbrellas. Nam-joon looks up to the building, which contained the offices of one Kim Chang-joon. Tae-hyung asks who he is, which baffles Nam-joon because it was one of the cases where Tae-hyung didn't seem to know the obvious. Nam-joon tells Tae-hyung that Kim Chang-joon is Seok-jin's father.[246]. Meanwhile, Ji-min is walking around the convenience store near the neighborhood of their old school. He comes across a graffiti that he recognizes as something done by Tae-hyung. It's a graffiti of a person that showed no particular emotion.[230] Ji-min immediately recognizes it to be Seok-jin. However, as he thinks of Seok-jin, someone else's face comes to his mind that ends up looking identical as well to the graffiti due to their soulless eyes. Suddenly, Ji-min realises who he has to find.[247]


July 23: Tae-hyung, Nam-joon, Ji-min, and Yoon-gi go back to their secret hideout. Ji-min sits while leaning on the wall, Yoon-gi sits on the piano bench, and Nam-joon writes something on the window with his finger. Nam-joon gets reminded of their school days, to which Yoon-gi brushes it off. Nam-joon wonders why they were born into the world in its current state. Just then, Ji-min finds Seok-jin's father's name. He also points out another name whom he knew at the mental hospital. Yoon-gi points out the name Choi Gyu-ho, a person who went missing. Below the names, Nam-joon finds the phrase, "Everything started here."[248]


July 24: Ho-seok tells Seok-jin to try and talk to his father about the redevelopment, which will affect the orphanage where Ho-seok grew up in. He fights back tears as Seok-jin looks at him with his expression unchanged. Seok-jin tells Ho-seok that nothing can be done. Ho-seok realises that a line has been drawn between the two of them, and that while Ho-seok is trying to live in fantasy, Seok-jin is living in reality. He realises that he can't be friends with Seok-jin. Ho-seok begins to shout and plead at Seok-jin, knowing in the end that none of it is going to help because they're all mere words. He knows that in the end, he's mad at himself and not at Seok-jin because he's the one who can't do anything and is nothing in the end.[249] Later that day, Tae-hyung spies a middle-aged woman, who goes out of her apartment room and to the banister. The woman smokes cigarette after cigarette as Tae-hyung continues to watch her from the distance. The sun is beginning to rise, and Tae-hyung wonders what the woman would think if she spots him. Eventually, the woman goes back to her room and Tae-hyung takes note of which room she took. Tae-hyung notes it to be his mother's house.[250]


July 29: Ho-seok goes to Hagok, noting that it's similar to Songju but livelier. He had vowed to act someone that's not Jung Ho-seok in the slightest. Someone who is careless and bumped into others with no care, someone who eats spicy foods and not complimenting the food to the server, and someone who would even spit on the ground. He finds a strip mall with a soon-to-open shop, a stationery shop, and a gimbap shop. It reminds him of how Two Star Burger is located. As Ho-seok wonders about where he'll be moving, he bumps into someone. He instinctively apologizes but immediately stops himself before continuing, putting up his opposite demeanor. However, he notices the person he bumped into was someone he knows.[251]


August 2: Yoon-gi sends a music file to Seok-jin. He had found an old music sheet when he went back to their secret hideout and had since polished it. The music sheet had the title, "We Can Laugh When We're Together." He notes how the writing wasn't his own, and he isn't sure if it was Seok-jin's. Yoon-gi then recalls a time back then when he and Seok-jin were walking across the athletic field. The two had been awkward as Yoon-gi slowed his pace in the hopes that Seok-jin would leave him. Seok-jin would try to start a conversation but end up making them more awkward around each other. Yoon-gi asked Seok-jin when was the last time he genuinely laughed, but Seok-jin didn't reply. Yoon-gi didn't press further. Yoon-gi notes how the music written in the sheet is childish and not beautiful. Whenever he thinks of high school, he just wants to get himself drunk. However, he knows that he still wants to polish this work and in the end keep the title of "We Can Laugh When We're Together."[252]


August 3: Seok-jin is looking through photos on the floor when suddenly they felt like moving. Jung-kook looks towards him. Seok-jin notes how all the memories suddenly flooded in him, hearing everyone's laughter and seeing everyone have fun through the photos. He wonders how he had forgotten all those memories when he finds something shimmering in his pocket.[253] Later on, Jung-kook is playing a shooting game. The game's map reminds him of the container town in Songju station. He changes his weapon to a machine gun when he spots someone wearing a black bandana. Suddenly, he starts to laugh when he notices how his enemies looked like his friends. Someone hits his character on the shoulder. When he looks back, he sees someone that looks like Seok-jin. Jung-kook's rage beings to boil all over.[254]


August 12: Ji-min hugs his younger self, reassuring him that when he grows up he'll meet great friends who'll help him become a better person. He tells his younger self to be stronger as he begins to cry. Eventually, Ji-min opens his eyes to find his younger self gone. He sees the entrance to the Grass Flower Aboretuum in the distance, finding it with no trace of rain.[255]


August 25: Nam-joon is trapped inside his container with Woo-chang as it burns. He falls down while coughing from the heat. He covers Woo-chang with a wet blanket as he tells him to try and jump on the window. As the two are about to jump, things begin to fall outside, blocking their exit.[256]

Testesso with a bouquet of Smeraldo Flowers.

July 10: Testesso posts his first entry on Flower Smeraldo Blog. In this, he introduces himself as a florist and owner of the Smeraldo Flower Shop, which is planned to be opened in mid-September. He also explains how five years ago he learnt about the Smeraldo Flower when he was going to the <FLOWER 2012> event but he ended up in the 'Origins of Playing Cards' event.[257]

Smeraldo Flower Shop's truck.

July 12: Testesso posts his second entry on the Flower Smeraldo Blog. He talks about how flowers are perceived as needed in special days. However, his teacher in America tells him that it's the existence of flowers that make the day special. That teaching is what got Testesso to decide to open his flower shop in September. His goal is to make customers happy by seeing Smeraldo flowers. He shows the truck and the in-construction shop that will be used. He describes the interior of the shop to be a minimalist white. He explains that he's available to deliver flowers in limited areas, so long as the order is 2 weeks ahead. He explains that the flowers will be treated to prevent the flowers from withering. He posts up his business email for further inquiries.[258]

@amare_0's instagram post.

July 17: Testesso posts his third entry on the Flower Smeraldo Blog. He explains how back when he found out about the Smeraldo flower, it was still merely a mythical flower. However, one summer, his friend whom he had met at the Playing Cards Conference, called him and told him how the Smeraldo flower had been officially found. The flower was first discovered by an Instagram post of someone named "amtest" (username amare_0). The user didn't know it was Smeraldo but took a photo of it due to its beauty. Soon, they found out the photo was taken in La CittΓ  de Smeraldo, which means "City of Smeraldo" in Italian. The city used to be prosperous in medieval times before it was abandoned after the Black Plague. After the discovery of the post, florists went to the city and confirmed that the flower was indeed the used-to-be-mythical Smeraldo flower. After that, the flower gained popularity in the US and Europe, but attempts to grow the flower locally had not been successful, with the reasonings still unknown. As of Testesso's writing, the flowers only grow in Northern Italy, as they get exported across Europe, North America, and a few countries in Asia.[259]

Italy's map.

July 20: Testesso posts his fourth entry on the Flower Smeraldo blog. He asks the readers if they think they are beautiful, which he segues into the legend of Smeraldo. The legend begins in 15-16th Century in a rural village of Northern Italy known as La CittΓ  de Smeraldo. In that city stood a small castle home to one man who was very ugly. There were lots of rumours of who exactly the man is, but nothing was ever confirmed. The man lived in isolation and would get anyone who nears his castle away. The man's only interest was to grow flowers. However, one day, a woman came by and stole his flowers. Furious, the man decided to stay up and guard the flowers. However, he fell asleep and the woman stole more flowers. This repeated for days until eventually, the man decided to pretend to have fallen asleep. He began to follow the woman and discovered that she was sick and that she stole the flowers to sell them. The man wanted to help the woman and teach her to grow flowers but was too afraid for the woman to see his ugly face.

Smeraldo flowers.

Instead, he decided to make a flower that doesn't exist in the world so that the woman could sell it for a high price. After many attempts, he succeeded and filled the entire garden full of those flowers. However, the woman never came back. The man decided to go out hidden to find out what happened to her, only to discover that the woman had already passed away. Testesso ends the story, explaining that the legend may or may not be based on a real story. Nevertheless, he wonders what would've happened if the man showed himself to the woman. But he knows that courage is hard to obtain. Testesso likens the legend to something he had experienced himself. He talks about the friend he mentioned in the previous post and how he liked her. They'd plan to go to the City of Smeraldo together. He remembers the excitement he and his friend had over planning their trip to Italy. Testesso ends his post saying how these memories could never be forgotten, but yet they're also a painful wound that could never be healed no matter how long time passes.[260]

July 17: Testesso posts his third entry on the Flower Smeraldo Blog. He explains how back when he found out about the Smeraldo flower, it was still merely a mythical flower. However, one summer, his friend whom he had met at the Playing Cards Conference, called him and told him how the Smeraldo flower had been officially found. The flower was first discovered by an Instagram post of someone named "amtest" (username amare_0). The user didn't know it was Smeraldo but took a photo of it due to its beauty. Soon, they found out the photo was taken in La CittΓ  de Smeraldo, which means "City of Smeraldo" in Italian. The city used to be prosperous in medieval times before it was abandoned after the Black Plague. After the discovery of the post, florists went to the city and confirmed that the flower was indeed the used-to-be-mythical Smeraldo flower. After that, the flower gained popularity in the US and Europe, but attempts to grow the flower locally had not been successful, with the reasonings still unknown. As of Testesso's writing, the flowers only grow in Northern Italy, as they get exported across Europe, North America, and a few countries in Asia.

July 20: Testesso posts his fourth entry on the Flower Smeraldo blog. He asks the readers if they think they are beautiful, which he segues into the legend of Smeraldo. The legend begins in 15-16th Century in a rural village of Northern Italy known as La CittΓ  de Smeraldo. In that city stood a small castle home to one man who was very ugly. There were lots of rumours of who exactly the man is, but nothing was ever confirmed. The man lived in isolation and would get anyone who nears his castle away. The man's only interest was to grow flowers. However, one day, a woman came by and stole his flowers. Furious, the man decided to stay up and guard the flowers. However, he fell asleep and the woman stole more flowers. This repeated for days until eventually, the man decided to pretend to have fallen asleep. He began to follow the woman and discovered that she was sick and that she stole the flowers to sell them. The man wanted to help the woman and teach her to grow flowers but was too afraid for the woman to see his ugly face.

Instead, he decided to make a flower that doesn't exist in the world so that the woman could sell it for a high price. After many attempts, he succeeded and filled the entire garden full of those flowers. However, the woman never came back. The man decided to go out hidden to find out what happened to her, only to discover that the woman had already passed away. Testesso ends the story, explaining that the legend may or may not be based on a real story. Nevertheless, he wonders what would've happened if the man showed himself to the woman. But he knows that courage is hard to obtain. Testesso likens the legend to something he had experienced himself. He talks about the friend he mentioned in the previous post and how he liked her. They'd plan to go to the City of Smeraldo together. He remembers the excitement he and his friend had over planning their trip to Italy. Testesso ends his post saying how these memories could never be forgotten, but yet they're also a painful wound that could never be healed no matter how long time passes.

July 10: Testesso posts his first entry on Flower Smeraldo Blog. In this, he introduces himself as a florist and owner of the Smeraldo Flower Shop, which is planned to be opened in late August. He also explains how five years ago he learnt about the Smeraldo Flower when he was going to the <FLOWER 2012/Annual Flower Conference> event but he ended up in the 'Origins of Playing Cards' event.[274]

July 12: Testesso posts his second entry on the Flower Smeraldo Blog. He talks about how flowers are perceived as needed in special days. However, his teacher in America tells him that it's the existence of flowers that make the day special. That teaching is what got Testesso to decide to open his flower shop in late August. His goal is to make customers happy by seeing Smeraldo flowers. He shows the truck and the in-construction shop that will be used. He describes the interior of the shop to be a minimalist white. He explains that he's available to deliver flowers in limited areas, so long as the order is 2 weeks ahead. He explains that the flowers will be treated to prevent the flowers from withering. He posts up his business email for further inquiries.[275]

July 15: Testesso posts his third entry on the Flower Smeraldo Blog. There, he talks about the current typhoon, and how due to that the construction of the flower shop was put to a stop. He visits the shop after dinner to check if nothing's broken and ends up staying there and watching the rain. However, a young man with an umbrella suddenly comes in front of the shop. He wants to start a conversation with the man but ends up not doing so because he isn't really sure of what the man's intentions are. Although it was dark, he thinks a part of why he doesn't want to talk to him is due to being unable to read the man's emotions. 10 minutes pass and the man eventually goes away, leaving Testesso confused as to whether the man thought it was the place before it got replaced by the shop or that he was hallucinating on seeing the man.[276]
