What is a sweet, soft-spoken girl (Ha Li Kang) to do when her brothers, having just learned fencing and martial arts, decide to test some moves out on her in order to "tame her" and make her into their "little slave?" She runs to her knightly friend (Te Hu Kang, not related to Ha Li) for protection, of course. However, what happens when, instead of comforting her, he tells her that she is a coward for running away like a puppy who needs constant protection? No, she does not break down and cry like a weak girl. Instead, she resolves to grow stronger. With rigorous training everyday, Ha Li goes from being a scared girl who cries for help to becoming the Jjang (boss of a gang) of the Doberman gang. However, events lead to Ha Li getting in an accident with a truck. Afterwards, she is reborn into the body of a beautiful, but weak, rich girl Aram Han.
Well this is my first review and i am just gonna go with it.Hot Blooded Woman is Korean Manga and it offers nothing much but pure enjoyment.It was hard for me to get the names and some other things but one thing is certain,i was laughing the whole time and that is what matters.Story wise there is nothing much.It is a pretty straight forward story involving a love triangle and some Soul transfers and a Death god typo and tons of voilence and nearly raped situations which are a trademark of the Mangka.there are not many surprises and plot twists tend to be linear.Art is pretty simplistic as u soon realize that Mangka is only capable of drawing 5 or 6 male characters and similar number of female characters .The pages often feel missing something as envoirnment often feels empty and there are not many things present in the back ground.Characters are ok as every one has a distinct personality and they stick to it no matter what.Character design is lacking as Arium and and few other characters are same.The real strength of this manga is its enjoyment value.Ha ji and her family are so funny that i couldnt stop laughing till the very end.Ha jis simplicity which is idiotic most of the times feels fresh everytime.Overall it is an enjoyable manga and worth a read. read more
I'm an avid fan of Hwang Mi Ri's manhwa, so yes, I am biased. I've read many of her works, and if you become familiar enough with her story preferences then yes it can become pretty predictable and repetitive.
But lets say you had never read any of her works... or weren't soo quick to pass judgement. I think this manhwa is a must read for everyone.
Story - 8
While I'm not too big on anything fantasy, the story remains pretty realistic except for the beginning part in which Hali's spirit is inside Aram.
I was furiously reading this as soon as I started it. Never did I want to break from it. There were various moments in which proper development between the characters occurred. And, its ability to captivate with various emotions throughout the story... I think it does its job well.
Art - 7
If you're more used to manga than manhwa, then you might think Mi Ri's drawing style is old fashioned or 'bad', but I find her art easy on the eyes. It's pretty good. So I give it a seven.
Character - 8
The characters don't change easily just because of 'love'. I like that the characters stick to they're given traits and hidden emotions and thoughts are slowly revealed as development occurs. I don't feel like I came to like or hate anyone I wasn't supposed to xD
Enjoyment - 10
... very much. I think the 10 explains it.
Overall - 9
I would give this manhwa a 10... but as almost every piece of writing out there, there is room for improvement. That being said I think its fine as it is all things considered :3read more
Sooo where do i start?? well like the first one who wrote a review about this manga its also my first time to write one....So wish me luck...here it goes:
well the story was not that unique. It has been used countless of times specially by the author of this manga. I'm not familiar abouthis works but but im pretty sure that a few of his works are patteren the same. its quite ammusing from the start and it will really interest you to keep going that happend in my case too but there were times while reading tis manga that i felt bored and thats the reason why i only gave it an 8 as its overall rating. On the other hand after felling bored after a while i find my self ammussed again by the twist of the story. Thats one thing i found good about this manga. The story does not give an unique impression as i said but believe me it has its own way of showing its own uniqueness.
Well about the art. Its a mahwa therefore i fin its art a little bit unique in a way in a sense where it has its own positive and negative sides. Honestly i find manhwa art a little bit strange more in the negative side thats why this is one of the first ever manhwa thats i've read. read more
Before I begin, I want to state that I haven't read any of Hwang Mi Ri's work except for Hot Blooded Woman and I bloody won't judge this manhwa based on the similarities between her stories.
I believe all of you who are saying that after reading 19 HMR manhwa, the twentieth sucks, because you can predict every twist.
BUT not having read anything like this, I pretty much enjoyed everything.
As for the story:
Lots of dead girls, lots of guys blaming themselves for their deaths, soul-transfering situations, love triangles, hate triangles, almost-rape situations, fighting, cruel stuff.... just the usual.
Although it was surprising in one way. Almost every manga I have read or every drama I have watched turned dramatically at one point and it became sad or full of misunderstood situations and grief.
BUT it was my first time reading such a comic story like this which actually turned out to be the cruelest manhwa I have ever read. It's not just full of sorrow, but real cruelty and sadism. Most of the characters carry psychopathic traits.
At the beggining of the story, all we get is embarrassing situations and lovely scenes. Then, with the introducing of new characters or old ones we don't really know yet, the whole story turns upside down.
I think that's when you become completely addicted.
I especially like the way HMR drew Jang Han Seo, one of the main guys. He can be charming, funny, human-like, beast-like or all these at the same time.
I also like Ha Ji, the heroine, but I must admit she isn't anything special. All the other characters are stereotyped and really similar to each other. I guess dear Hwang Mi Ri's only capable of drawing 6 or 7 different faces and 3 different body types in each gender.
In my humble opinion... No, not in my opinion: This story's main point is DEFINITELY its characters.
Ha ji, our heroine loves nothing but eating, fighting and eating after and before fighting.(No kidding.)
So if you expect a girl who becomes cute at a point in the story and can actually behave well or look beautiful, don't be mistaken. Well, she can be stunning in her own way, for some of the characters, but most of all she is just an eating-burping-machine.
Sin Uoo is your tyipical protagonist, who goes through some serious character development. In the beggining he is that cool-headed sort of guy, who appears confident, but really, he is just unable to say what he’s truly thinking, so when he says „I hate you! You are an ugly bitch.”, he actually means „Marry me, love!”.
Another main character, who is like the other half of the love(and hate) triangle, is the antagonist of our story. And let’s be honest: Jang Han Seo is the evilest of his kind. For him, love is possessive and jealousy equals destruction. He goes by the saying that „If I can’t have it/her, no one can.”
He is a complete madman. If I could describe him in any way, it would be by listing the traits of a SOCIOPATH:
„The greatest weakness of sociopaths is that they don’t have empathy. As a result, they tend to be successful in everything they are doing, since their goals are generally ruthlessly achieved. At the same time sociopaths are often appealing, have a spontaneous personality, and persuasive speaking skills. They get bored quickly, they can’t stand monotony and they need impulses which often go with irresponsibility. They are skilled at lying and manipulating others. They have no remorse, poor emotional life and insensitivity. They are impulsive. They are good at hiding the fact that they only follow their own purposes, and they can lull suspicion.”
I should add one more thing to this title: don't believe any of them. The characters, I mean. They will fool you... None of them is what you think they are. Ha ji, most of all;)
As I’ve said before, this story is really enjoyable. Even though it can be stupid, or overly dramatized, even cruel, action is always there, with love and fun. What else do we need?
