Beautiful Hangover – A Short Story


So this is another short story that I wrote or my creative writing class, again Freshman year. I was really inspired by the music video Beautiful Hangover by Big Bang. This was right when I got into Kpop, courtesy of my delightful roommates. I remember telling them I had no idea what I wanted to write about for my second short story and well joking one of them said, because this video was on, to write about this. And I did. It was a lot of fun to write this story and share it with my classmates. I’m overall very pleased with the outcome of the story. Hope you enjoy!
