Title: Tiger Lily
Yoon lives a hard life. His mother despises his existence after his father died in a car accident while getting his birthday cake when Yoon was a child. His brother mercilessly bullied him before going missing, which their mother blames Yoon for since it occurred when he moved out. Plus, he has to take a leave of absence from college to work, save up, and pay his tuition. Yeah, life can’t get much worse. He thinks so until he encounters a mysterious man named Jay.
As it turns out, Jay is a tiger goblin. This creature hunts humans, stealing their vitality until they are no more. Once consumed, their souls become tied to the tiger goblin, enslaved, and forced to bring new sacrifices in exchange for their freedom to the afterlife. As it turns out, Yoon’s missing brother was Jay’s previous victim, and the person his brother chose for his freedom is Yoon. He thought he could escape his brother’s torment when he left home, but even in the afterlife, his brother wants nothing more than to torture Yoon.
The only thing keeping Yoon alive is that humans are best consumed at the peak of happiness. While Yoon is anything but happy, Jay is determined to make him the most delectable prey possible before consuming him whole. Unfortunately, it seems Yoon doesn’t have a single wish in the world, and as such, Jay can’t make Yoon happy. So, without any other course of action, Jay decides to go down the one path he thinks can brighten up Yoon’s lonely life: pretend to love him.
