ART- I just love the art in this Manga its so gracefully drawn and so beautiful it attracted me right away. The art is extremely well done in my eyes, it has that beautiful seriousness yet at some points in can be comical and funny. So the art gets a 10 because i love the art style in which this Manga was done.
Story- The story gets an 8 because quite frankly we have all read yaoi manga that involves getting in debt with a loan shark and owing him, then the couple ends up liking each other and live happily ever after. This here had some twist that i really liked, its different yet alike others. The love triangle really made it worth the while to read. You cant wait to find out who ends up with who.
Characters- The characters are all well out made. They have there own personalities that make them come to life. To me its really addicting when the characters are so well out made. They make the Manga all the more enjoyable to read when u can relate characters to real life.
Enjoyment- I give it a straight up 10 since i really enjoyed reading this Manga. It always left me wanting more. So there's not much to it. This is one of my favorite yaoi so far and i recommend it to anyone who likes Yaoi or Shounen ai. read more

The story was written very smoothly, although i find that there some gaps here in there. The scenes just flow into each other that it's not confusing and it's actually addicting to read. The art, well what can i say? It's really good! The art was outstandingly executed, and they really look like they have human proportions. They sort of look like typical korean pretty boys, but that's one point of yaoi right? The guys should be hot. The character development was, again, well executed. Although the reason why they feel in love could have been developed more, it's still great at that. And lastly, i really enjoyed reading this manhwa. I can see myself re-reading it in the future. read more

Story - Very addicting, I found myself spending a good few hours at a time reading it so I got done with it fairly quickly. It isn't a typical story and its very creative and not everything was predictable, there are some points in the story that had you wanting to continue to read more.
To sum up the beginning of the story: The main protagonist, Ewon, has cheated on his ex, Jiho, and in turn break up. Ewon then tries to apologize and follows him about everywhere but Jiho is not interested in an apology. To get back at him for breaking his heart and basically being a "stalker", Jiho tells his current lover and mafia member, Mookyul, about Ewon. As punishment, Ewon ends up being forced to work for the loan shark. And of course things unravel from there
Art - Very well done, sometimes in mangas (although this is a manwha and admittedly the first one I've read) there's sometimes not much character difference when it comes to design. But in this, every character is very well drawn and unique looking, you don't keep mixing up who is who because one looks similar to the other. And of course they made the main characters very attractive; Mookyul is seen as somewhat of a heart-throb everywhere he goes. Backgrounds and other things are also very well done, its a visually appealing manga.
Character - Really loved how characters had their own unique personalities, you'll find yourself really loving or loathing certain characters. Ewon's character is very likable. Mookyul is extremely stubborn, short tempered, and violent but you really can't help but fall for his character. ( Maybe because he's such a stud!? Haha. ) And the other mafia members play a big role in the story as well and you get to learn each of their personalities.
Enjoyment - If it wasn't obvious, I thoroughly enjoyed this manwha. Almost so much that I really would want it made into an animated series! ( :p ) If you're like me, you'll find yourself not wanting to stop reading it because every chapter leaves off with you wanting to see more. It was almost sad to stop reading it because I liked it so much. I'd say it has a high re-read value, at least for me. read more

This history is warmly slow, you can read it easily but think suspicious about the characters, is not a secret, what are each of them, but we can barely see, and by that way, how themselves demolish his own walls.
How the three principals personges, become the most high and down moment because of other person. "Is Real what we feel? then i deny it" "lies and lies, I don't care" "My past is never a secret, but, you show me my real past" "avoiding myself from you" "avoiding myself" "love" "it's you".
We can see a romance become something so familiar to us, so close to our reality, very personal, is doesn't matter if is a boy who are living it, we can feel that sort of thing ann make you feel it, at the same moment. And how the dialogues are spread, is just wonderful, every word, and every expression So carefully drawn, the feeeling, if it's a remember, or whatever is, is just amazing.
And the best thing is that every happen time by time, not so fast as other histories, we can complain each moment, each personages. you can love the personages easily. If you never had live something like that, the way how this is made, write and draw, make you understand and feel the moment, it make you "be" the character.
High recommended who like heavy histories of love, who like something so close to Us. read more

Unlike typical shounen-ai/yaoi manga/manwha, the story doesn't just focus on sex or the relationship but it revolved around all of the characters in the story including the supporting ones. It has a concrete storyline and I truly can shed a tear or a few as I read it.
I've seen a LOT of Korean dramas and I have to say, this one is just like the rest...a normal guy (in the dramas usually girls) going into troubles with a rich guy and soon fell for him. The usual normal VS rich storyline can be depicted in this manwha but the fun thing is that it focuses not only on a typical rich guy but a MAFIA-like one at that which makes it much more interesting. And then comes the main normal protagonist denying his feelings for the other party but was forced to submit by a contract or so and in the end found sincere love. Basically, this type of story is very common but I enjoyed it anyway. 8/10 for me!
Art: BEAUTIFUL... There are a few flaws at some parts but hey, nothing is perfect right? The characters, the backgrounds and details are just mesmerizing. I think even the art-obsessed readers would come to a liking for this manwha. I, in my own opinion, loved how the artist drew the eyes and the clothes for the characters. I mean, in every chapter either Mookyul or Ewon will come up in a VERY fancy suit which just emphasizes their hot looks. 9/10!
Character: MAIN reason I love this manwha. The characters are not REALLY original but they have their own personalities and was stuck to it from the beginning to the end which is, quite a feat since you usually see a drastic change to one of the characters if you need a change in the story or relationship. Ewon is a studious normal gay and is affectionate to everyone and this didn't change right to the end. He still cared for his best friend and his ex but he still shows true love to Mookyul. And when it comes to Mookyul's character, I have to say he's the most evil seme I've came acrossed with... *laughs* He and his evil, perverted instincts didn't change ONE BIT and that made me love him the most. It is nice to see that he did not just throw away EVERYTHING for love but he just...changed priorities. You can always see that the main guy would give up his status, pride and family for his love but Mookyul kept them by his side even if he did put them aside at one point. The characters have a concrete personality that made them life-like and original in their own way. 9/10 all the way!
What can I say more? I enjoyed it enough to make me re-read it for another 3 times! 9/10!
Well, I truly wanted to give the manwha a 10/10 but I can still find some empty gaps for the manwha to truly be a masterpiece. Nevertheless, it was a GREAT read and I recommend this to EVERY shounen-ai/yaoi fans out there.
MookyulXEwon FTW! read more

I'm really glad that the synopsis is so badly written. Well, not badly written per see but it certainly doesn't do justice to the wonderfulness that is TC. When I started reading I was already expecting a story without real plot about some guy abused by the mafia. But that wasn't the case and I became entranced. It's similar and at the same time different from other shonen-ai/yaoi stories. The unexpected twists managed to make me addicted of this manhwa'a crispy pages. Though sometimes I get a feeling that the story lacked something and got a bit too tangled at the corners. But as it's from Ewon's point of view and he's not omniscient I think that it can be forgiven.
They are very well developed and their main character points are strongly accentuated. Even the 'lackeys' are liking different things and their reactions to events aren't similar too much. Through the story most of them change and start to behave out of character which often puzzles Ewon. Especially if it's him acting strange.
Most of the panels are well drawn. Most because Mookyul sometimes look like he's 30-something years old and then suddenly reverts in to his teenage self. Thankfully, when the drama hits the fan Ha Jin Yo keeps him looking properly for his age. The backgrounds are sparse though while reading it's not too noticeable. The thing that really pains me are nipples on the covers. They don't even look llike nipples. More like big pimples. It seems that the author really likes beautiful clothes (and flowers) and the lines are delicate and seem to melt under insistent eyes of a fujioshi.
Well if it depended on my enjoyment only I would give it a 10. I may be a bit biased but... This totally deserves every minute I spent on it and that was a lot because I re-read it a few times. I don't really know why evaded it for so long but I don't regret it as it only made it sweeter. I like to think about it as of something that was a dish that I kept saying I hated, without actually ever trying it. But when I finally got the courage to taste it, I found it was really delicious. I kept trying it again and again thinking that I just got an impression of good taste from it. And somehow becoming... Totally captivated by it. read more

The protagonist, Ewon played the desperate seme first, but did a 180 turn and became the sought-after uke. He rocked both roles. It would be nicer to see some more desperation after he got dumped, but the desperation came back later in the story. He's, by my standards, a pretty well-developed, well thought of character.
Mookyul, oh Mookyul. Smexy Mookyul, with the designer clothes, and the cash that matches his million dollar face. A sort-of brute seme, with a really dark secret, that gives him that extra depth in his character, which isn't revealed until the very end, meaning that the story doesn't drag, and the writer doesn't prolong it for more than it needs to be prolonged.
Storyline: It's longer than most manga, but there are always obstacles in their way. There are false climaxes that leave the audience in suspense, and funny parts to lift their spirits. I'd say that it was very well done. read more
