I just happened to come across this manhwa and I was really surprised to see the whole thing was in color. I'm already comfortable with reading yaoi so the shounen ai genre didn't scare me away. But for people who are scared of becoming "gay" just by reading yaoi or start complaining that it's disgusting just because it's shounen ai, this manhwa has very light boy/boy interaction, nothing hardcore. You would think they were merely friends. For those who are homo phobic, I wouldn't advise you to read this then, if any slight insinuation or if you misunderstand easily then all I have to say read more

Yes, this is the first time I say 'there isn't really room for improvement'. Hence the 10's. The story is truly wonderful. Two young men dealing with hideous life events that 'happen' to cross paths.

The art for me was a first time experiance. It was the most interesting blend of actual photographs and hand drawn images, mixed with every degree of combining the two. The color of the hand drawn to me brought a vividness of events and the characters that made them stand read more

well, its not exactly the same but while i'm reading Running on Empty its somehow reminds me of Totally Captivated...dont know why but its probably because of the BL genre and because the stories both involve mafia and loan-shark...

A warning though...Totally Captivated has a more heavy Yaoi scenes than Running on Empty...
Done by the same manwha author- running on empty has light BL but Teen spirit focuses more on the lives and struggles of the boys and is not romantic
