Here’s the thing about soulmates: most people never found them. In South Korea, only 38% of people have met their soulmate by age 40, only 14% by age 25, and less than 3% before the age of 15.
Donghyuck was 14 when he first met Mark Lee, 14 when Mark’s hand accidentally brushed the skin on his chest underneath his left collarbone, 14 when a soulmark in the shape of the sun bloomed on his skin where Mark had touched him for the first time.
Donghyuck is now 22, sitting next to Mark in a conference room in the SM Entertainment building at six in the morning, squeezing his hand under the table.
Donghyuck and Mark have been soulmates since the day they met, at the ages of 14 and 15. Or, since the day they were born, depending on how you look at it. The fans don't know, of course, but maybe it's about time that they did.
