It took me two days to read this but only because I was busy during those two days. But the important thing was I enjoyed this manga pretty well!

I first discovered Handsome na Kanojo by looking through the Skip Beat's recommendation page. I like the synopsis, the fact that the main character is an actress, the plot revolving around show biz and the kinda old art which made me quickly decide to read it. It was a good choice.

I give the Story and 8/10 because it is a typical showbiz story line. They have similar hurdles, and story arcs with only a select few read more

Manga: Skip Beat!
Both mangas follow an aspiring actress as she struggles to develop her career while dealing with aspects of rejection. They both have a different flavour but they both have similarities too.
