The story of Bongun, Munak and Sohee
« on: May 17, 2009, 03:23 am »

Many years before Ragnarok, the Kingdom of Payon reached from the Southeast seas into the heart of Rune-Midgard. It was a prosperous country, with an honorable Emperor and Empress. However, the nobility of Payon were arrogant, and vowed to make the land of Payon so beautiful that the gods themselves would be jealous. They built spectacular pagodas, embellished with Gold and precious stones. They grew gardens of the most fragrant flowers and forests of majestic trees. Soon, even the homes of peasants were painted gorgeous colors instead of being built strong, and their gardens were full of flowers instead of crops. While the surface of this magnificent country shined with color and wealth, in reality the people were hungry and neglected, squandering all they had for the sake of beauty— beauty more astonishing than the halls of heaven.

This is when the Gods took notice.

Foreseeing the end of their powers in Ragnarok, the gods hastened to secure their influence into the world's heirs. It was this time that twin children were born to the Emperor and Empress of Payon, Prince Bongun and Princess Munak. But on the day of their birth, the great fortuneteller prophesied a tragic end to their lives. The Emperor and Empress were frightened by the prophecy that they raised the two royal children in isolation, forbidding them to leave the castle's secure walls. But the two grew together as siblings and friends, never feeling lonely by each other's side. They grew up surrounded by beautiful things and intelligent tutors, never knowing sadness or want. Being twins, they felt deep affection for each other, and vowed to be each other's protector. And in this way, Bongun grew to be a handsome young prince and unparalleled fencer, and Munak blossomed into a delicate but strong- willed princess.

But the two could not remain together forever. When the two became of age, Bongun was told he would soon marry a foreign Princess from the west , and Munak would be sent to the north to marry a foreign prince there. The two were heartbroken at the thought of separation, and jealous at the thought they the other may be happy in their coming marriage. For the first time in their sheltered lives, the felt sadness and want.

This is when the Gods made their move. "Let us capture the vulnerable heart of the young Prince," they plotted. "We will possess the foreign princess who is to wed Bongun, and through her, control the most magnificent country of the eastern world."

And so they sent down a spirit to possess the innocent princess Sohee. Enchanted, she became more beautiful than any woman the nobility of Payon had seen— long hair, black as the night, framed her moon-white face, and her robes shone with the brilliance of the stars. She was truly a divine girl, thought the noblemen, too entranced by her beauty to notice the flame-red eyes she hid in the darkness. In their hearts, all of Payon, longed for true beauty to love and worship. And thus they were instantly seduced.



But the possessed beauty did not fool Munak nor Bongun, for they knew of different Beauty and Love than what the entire kingdom had been fooled with. Together, they had discovered inner beauty. For when they stared at the colors and brightness of the kingdom they were forbidden to experience, they had wept for each other, and vowed to renounce such shallow trappings. This is where Bongun's swordmanship began to develop, and Munak's inner strength to build. They encouraged each other, for they had no one else to encourage, and loved each other deeply as siblings, companions, and more... For they had no one else to love.

But they were helpless to stop the fate the Gods had set for them. The Gods were aware they had not fooled the young heirs of Payon, so they ordered Sohee to dispose Munak, before she could give strength to Bongun, for they may together reveal the possessed bride.

And in the darkness one night, Munak wept in her room alone, fighting to give up her naive desires to rule Payon with her brother until their, or the kingdom's, end. She grieved for her wasted dreams. But in a passion-confused state, she wrote of her love and her plans for their dream kingdom in a letter addressed to her brother, and hid it behind her portrait, hoping he would discover it one day far in the future. She then collapsed onto her bed, drained from the force of hopelessness.

But her beloved shared the torment. Not because they were twins, not because they were siblings, but because they were linked with one heart— such a heart sustained them, and could only existed with both their wills. And so when Munak wept, Bongun felt it, and rushed to her room to comfort his beloved sister.

Unbeknownst to them, a scarlet blade glinted in the moonlight, held by the delicate fingers of a divine beauty. While the two embraced, weeping for each other, lost in their despair of the future, the blade sank into the wrong victim, and claimed the prince's life immediately.

The death of the young Prince brought the kingdom to ruin. Sohee had failed her mission, concluded the gods, and so she would return to who she once was. But before the spirit left her, she used her powers to convince the nobility that Munak killed her brother in a state of madness. Munak was banished to the darkest caves, where she truly went mad with grief, and began trying to rebuild her and her brother's kingdom in the deepest stone caverns— an underground kingdom, perhaps built from the forbidden love of siblings.

Sohee returned to a normal girl, and lived as the adopted princess of Payon, while the Emperor and Empress grieved for their heirs. But one day, she stalled over a moonlit lake hidden deep in the forest, and saw her reflection lighted by the dark heavens. Her memories of the murderous deed flooded back, and she drowned herself in the sparkling waters.

The nobility urged their royal leaders to continue with the kingdom's beatification. And without substance to quell their hunger for beauty, they continued to spend and build, until the days of Ragnarok came...

And so the spirits of the three haunt this remaining glimpse of what Payon was. The forests... the caves..sometimes the village.. the grieved and angered spirits of innocent lovers, innocent tools of the Gods are trapped here by the love and grief they cannot let go of.

Good attempt but true fact:

Sohee is a Virgin. Most probably used as a sacrificial item during ancient Japanese Rituals due to her beauty and purity. (Play Fatal Frame and you will get it)

Munak and Bongun are actually chinese vampires.

Nice story though, great job
