Night Kiss

E.T. Malinowski has a new queer paranormal book out: Night Kiss.

What could be frightening enough to freeze the blood of a centuries-old Vampire turned K-pop idol?

Being bound to someone.

University student Cheong Jin-woo dreams of working in the arts, especially for BL Entertainment and his favorite band, Bam Kiseu. After seeing the band perform, Jin-woo separates from his friends to explore. What he discovers backstage will change his life.

Does he embrace it or run?

Jung Ki-tae has kept his secret for centuries—until a young fan interrupts his feeding. Even more disturbing is the instant bond Ki-tae feels with Jin-woo—a complication he refuses to allow. Yet resisting becomes increasingly difficult as Jin-woo and a group of students win the chance to make a video for the band, working closely with them for weeks. The obsession Ki-tae felt toward Jin-woo—even before tasting his blood—deepens into genuine feelings, feelings that terrify Ki-tae. But when he finds a way to break the bond, he’s torn between severing the connection and protecting Jin-woo….

Especially with a mysterious killer getting closer.

Jin-woo was late and Min-su was going to kill him, but if he hadn’t gone back to the studio, they wouldn’t have their visuals, and then she would have killed him slowly. He’d had to scramble to find someone with the keys, too, forcing him to miss all the other presentations. He never realized how hard it was to find maintenance personnel on a campus this size. When he finally reached Min-su, she looked scared as hell.

“What?” he asked. “What is it? What’s wrong?”

“Um, I… I can’t breathe. I really… can’t.” Min-su puffed out her cheeks and fanned her face. “I didn’t…. If I had known, I would have chosen a different outfit. I would have done my hair, and my makeup is just…. Dammit. Why didn’t anyone tell me they were going to be here?”

“What the heck is she talking about, Jong-in-a?” Jin-woo demanded.

“We’re not just presenting to Park Soon-joon hyung,” Jong-in said quietly.

“Of course we aren’t. Seonsaengnim is there as well,” Jin-woo said. “This isn’t new.”

“It’s…. We’re…. Jin-woo-ya, Bam Kiseu is in that room!” Min-su said, grabbing him by his vest and shaking him back and forth. “HanYin oppa is in that room! Ki-tae oppa is in that room! Cheongul oppa is in that room!”

Jin-woo did the only thing he could think of. He slapped her.

Min-su stumbled back a few steps and just stared at him. Then she narrowed her eyes and came at him.

Jin-woo threw up his hands in defense of the punch coming his way.

“I’m sorry!” But it never landed. He peeked with one eye. Min-su looked completely calm.

“Thank you,” she said with a sigh. “I was losing my shit, and that’s not acceptable.”

“You’re good?” Jin-woo said.

“I’m good.”

“Good,” Jin-woo said as he began to shake. “I’m going to pass out now.”

And he did just that.

Jin-woo didn’t remember hitting the floor, but he figured that must have happened, as he was staring up at the ceiling with Min-su slapping his face and Jong-in looking terribly concerned. He caught Min-su’s wrist and held her hand to his face for a few moments, closing his eyes once more.

“No, you cannot pass out on us again. We’re up next, Jin-woo-ya!” Min-su said, an edge of desperation in her voice.

“I’m not going to pass out again. I just wanted you to stop slapping me and calm down,” he said. Then he slowly sat up, rubbing the back of his head. He looked at Jong-in and teased, “You couldn’t have caught me?”

“Nope, Min-su-ya was in the way.”

“Hey, this is not my fault,” she said, putting her hands on her hips.

“Well, you were shaking Jin-woo-ya pretty hard,” Jong-in pointed out. “There’s no need to panic. They’re people, just like us.”

No, not just like us, Jin-woo thought but wisely kept the words to himself.

Character Interview

Cheongul Interview

I’ll be the first to admit I fangirled just a little bit when I was told I would have the opportunity to sit down with Cheongul, leader of Bam Kiseu. Enigmatic and less talkative offstage than his bandmates, Cheongul nevertheless had such an aura of quiet strength and intense presence it wasn’t difficult to see why many young women and men gravitate towards him. Our interview took place in Cheongul’s dressing room after a fan meet following the successful conclusion of their world tour this past year. This reporter found Cheongul eloquent and precise in his answer with a pleasant charm and a quirky wit.
1. What do you do when you’re not working? How do you relax?
“Is there a time I’m not working?” Cheongul asked with a smile. “Honestly, I work a lot and it often seems as if that is all I do, but I wouldn’t change it, so the times where I’m not are rare. If I’m not in the studio, I can usually be found in the gym, usually on the treadmill or with the weights. When I really want to relax, I’ll go for a drive. I may go out to one of the national parks or just outside the city, and wander around with my camera.

2. You enjoy photography?
“Yeah, I fill up SD card after SD card, especially on tour. It drives HanYin-a and Ki-tae-ya nuts when I drag them around with me, but they don’t complain too much. I have a couple cards for every city we visited. We’re making memories for our fans and I make memories for myself, so I never forget the places we’ve seen and the people we’ve touched with our music.”

3. Of the many things you do, which one makes your heart beat the fastest?
“Dancing, I’m usually the one who works out the choreography with Goo-ji seonbae.” Cheongul said shifting on the small black leather couch. “There’s a real sense of accomplishment when all of the steps click together and flow just right. And when I see our fans online doing our dances, it makes me feel good. Also, songwriting, when I finally get all the pieces to fit together just right, that’s a rush, too.”

4. Many of our fans are really curious about the answer to this next question. Are you dating anyone?
Cheongul smiled and then laughed, covering his mouth with his hand, heat flooded his cheeks. “No, I’m not currently seeing anyone. I don’t really have time to date and any woman I’m interested in would have to understand about my schedule. I work crazy hours. There’s no normal work week with a regular day off here.”

5. What do you enjoy most about the company/industry?
“BL Entertainment is more than a company. We’re a family. There’s not a single person who doesn’t feel that way. Everyone from the lowest intern to the president of the company matters. The industry itself is demanding. Sub-par work and lack of effort won’t cut it. There are standards and I like that. Shoddy work pisses me off.”

6. Are there any musicians you’d like to collaborate with? Why?
“I’d like to collaborate with TOP hyung from Big Bang. He has a unique style and his flow is sick. If I could, I’d like to collaborate with Nam Ki-ha hyung. The way he manipulates his voice is amazing and his skills as a lyricist are nothing short of awesome. Our music has been influenced by other cultures, so I’d like to work with some western artists, too. Queen Latifah, to name one. I love her presence, her confidence, and there’s no denying her skills. This might come as a surprise, but I’d also like to work with Ice Nine Kills. They have a great storytelling ability with their music and their video concepts are tight. There’s a whole bunch more I could list but I don’t think we have that kind of time.”

7. If you could date any other musician or celebrity who would it be? Why?
Cheongul grinned. “CL as for why, have you seen her? She’s beautiful and confident, and sassy. I like that. I could be wrong, but I don’t see her playing games. I can’t stand games. Be straight up with me or it’s done.”

8. When, if ever, do you regret being famous?
“It doesn’t happen often, but when I’m… sick. I really hate being around people. I just want to be left alone, but I can’t. I have responsibilities not only to my company, but to my fans as well. I try my best, but there are times when I feel crowded and it makes me really cranky. I mean I can’t even go out to …get medicine without people following me. I don’t know anyone who wants to be around other people when they feel awful.”

9. When you feel homesick, what is your favorite food?
The answer came almost immediately. “Jiaozi. I love jiaozi and when I’m feeling homesick on tour, that’s what I want. Fortunately, I always have HanYin-a with me and he’ll make it for me. Then I don’t feel as homesick anymore.”

10. What was your inspiration for writing your songs?
“I get inspiration from things around me. Sometimes, it’s only a beat or a melody, other times, it might just be the chorus of the song. I’ve been inspired by a lotus blossom on a pond just as much as watching HanYin-a laugh or a drop of rain slip down a windowpane. Sometimes, it’s a more conscious effort. By that I mean I chose an idea, like Bái Hŭ, and then researched and read everything I could about him. From there, Tiger’s Pride was born. The only person I know who can just sit down with no prep and write a song is Ki-tae-ya. It’s as if he hears music all the time.”

11. What’s that one song that always gets you pumped?
“Can’t Beat Me” again Cheongul’s answer came quickly. “It’s a really upbeat song, lots of energy and full of confidence, and not just a little swag.”

12. What do you feel is the best song you’ve recorded?
“I don’t think I could pick just one. We have a lot of great songs, ones that really feel like a part of us. Crossing Time is one of my favorites, but I also think Dance with Me was a great one, too. I love Call the Dragon. HanYin-a did a great job with it and we all had a hand in Kiss Me.”

13. Describe your relationship with your band mates.
“They’re my brothers.” The words are said with such a casual yet firm tone, there’s no doubt he means them. “I am the eldest and the leader, but they keep me grounded just as much as I do them. We joke and play around. We’re really close.”

14. Are there any plans for solo albums?
“No. I like where I am right now.”

15. What’s next for Bam Kiseu?
“We still have pretty full schedules even though we just came off tour. We’re always writing music so chances are we’ll start putting together a new album soon. Local performances aren’t out of the question and we’ll always do events for our fans.”
