a rather infamous 3rd year at nekoma, moved from south korea smack bang at the start of 1st year thanks to parents having "problems". he's had a foul attitude that's followed him since, not one to bend over due to niceties - you either like him or you don't. comes from a family split in half and there's much to talk about there. not much to talk about tokyo, either. well, there is the racing; he enjoys the money, the roars of revs, the scream of tyres against asphalt. it's the first time he's felt truly alive, so he kind of gets it when people say that poetic shit. he adores his car - she makes him win, and all that matters to him is exactly that.
- NAME: jin ha-neul.
- AGE: 18.
- HEIGHT: 5 foot 8/172cm.
- PRONOUNS/TERMS: he/him, any terms.
- SEXUALITY: pansexual.
- SCHOOL: nekoma high school, third year.
- CLUBS: n/a.
- BELOVED CAR: honda nsx, bright red.
- so, the honda nsx is a pretty expensive car! ha-neul only got his hands on one thanks to his father back in south korea hitting it rich & sending bulks of guilt money to rekindle with his son. said son let the guilt money build up until he had enough, and bought the bright red monstrosity as his designated racing car.
- said car is fondly referred to as "she", so don't let this surprise you! she really is one of the loves of ha-neul's life, if not the utmost priority.
- he also knows how to ride a motorbike, but hasn't for ages. sees no need to.
- his mother is a music teacher at the local middle school. seems to love her job, so ha-neul's content with tokyo for now as long as she is.
- yup, complete mama's boy.
- he's irritatingly stubborn, if he doesn't want to do something or alternatively he wants to do something, he simply does everything in his power to do what he wants.
- yes, he dyed his hair red to match his car. he's not an actual redhead surprisingly!
- fond of trying new foods. the weirder the better, he'll try it all if he can.
- he gets into fights at school, naturally. quite adept at patching himself up, doesn't want to worry his mother too much but she definitely knows anyway.
- you can find him smoking behind the school or on the school roof, it's one or the other. bad habit, & he carries gum on him at all times.
- as to why ha-neul is such a "dick" to put it simply, a lot of shit went downhill when his dad started to be a dick. he kind of had to grow up fast with no healthy way to amend that. things only soured the older he grew, nowadays he isn't really sure how to act all polite like the others do.
- goes on late night drives a lot, does this thing known as "speed therapy" where he hits quiet stretches of open roads and goes all too fast. has a playlist & everything for it. helps his mind quieten down, as there isn't much else he can do for an outlet.
- the jin household isn't very well off, but ha-neul is a prideful fuck & refuses help of any kind from anyone. you offer to pay for his lunch? no. snacks? he's buying them thanks. a gift? he'll insist to hell & back you take it back or he will. you could argue he's in denial the family is in a poor state, but if anything he's all too aware. he despises being seen as a charity case, & with that came natural frugality & doing what he could to appear like money was no issue.
- faceclaim: vinny hong, windbreaker.
- mbti: istp.
