In a desperate attempt to overcome his writer's block, Kim Seokjin rents a cottage by the sea on a remote island in the southern part of Korea for the summer, intent on successfully completing a story.
Min Yoongi spends his nights tending the lighthouse, providing a light on the horizon for lost sailors to navigate safely, all the while feeling lost by himself, a lightkeeper without a guiding light.
There are some people who are meant to cross paths, even if it means time itself must bend to accommodate them.

Taehyung hadn’t really noticed before how much he talked about Jimin when he was with Seokjin, or the way Seokjin raised his eyebrows every single time. And he definitely hadn’t noticed before if Jimin looked so weird and blushy the morning after every time Seokjin spent the night before — had he always done that, or was that new?
(Taehyung and Jimin have spent five years living out of each others' pockets (literally, since Taehyung keeps stealing Jimin's hoodies), and when Taehyung starts dating someone new for the first time in a while, Jimin starts sulking, and Taehyung starts wondering.)
“You’re a menace,” Seokjin says. “You come here—you wake me up from my sleep—to do these things versus me. To do the things that you do, against me, specifically.”
“All I did was call you pretty,” Taehyung says. “And say that when I was seventeen I wanted to kiss you.”
He was the last person Namjoon expected to hear from - thought he was dreaming when he saw the email in his work inbox. It was short and simple, typical Hoseok. Just: We saw what happened. We’re so sorry. If you need get away for awhile, you’re always welcome to come stay with us - JH. He wonders now if Hoseok was surprised when he said yes. If Hoseok only extended the invitation because he didn’t think Namjoon would actually come.
(Or: Namjoon chose a solo career and left Yoongi and Hoseok behind. Seven years later, after being outed by a Korean tabloid, he ends up on their couch in Queens, trying to face an uncertain future. And confront feelings that have persisted for nearly a decade.)
