SynopsisThe love story between a blind girl who lives in fairytales and a hard boiled boy who no longer believes.
After the accident, Ai Rin is no longer too sure. She cannot see, and she isn't even sure if her 'family' is her real one. She doesn't remember if she had any sisters or even an angry mother. While Lee Su's family was completely destroyed. His father is now drunk, and he doesn't have any money to pay for the surgery his little sister needs. He stopped believing in magic and fairytales long ago. But the two meet by chance, Ai Rin, a fairytale writer, and Lee Su, a hat seller.
"And they lived happily ever after...Jk, this is just the calm before the storm."
This little gem is a diamond in the rough. It's not translated completely into english yet, but it doesn't have a single review, so I thought I'd write one.
The manhwa "Blind Marchen" is an interesting tale of a blind maiden on a search for something she's lost, be it her memories, her parents, or her sight. It puts an interesting twist on several familiar fairy tales, intertwining them into a beautiful web of a story. It is told in third person, also giving it more of a fairy tale feeling.
The art presented in this work is very beautiful, and is very well suited to a story such as this. As far as most manga goes, it is on the more realistic side, with closer-to-accurate proportions. The fact that it is in color also brings life to the story.
Because of the shortness of the story, there isn't much character development as of yet, except maybe in the mad hatter. But character isn't the most important feature of this story, as most people who read it can make the characters into what they like, based on the fairy tales surrounding them. Also, many fairy tales aren't focused to much on character themselves. Stories such as Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty don't really develop their heroines, they just portray them as beauty and goodness incarnate. But it doesn't take away from the story.
I have really enjoyed this manhwa so far. I love fairy tales, and it really brings them together into a beautiful creation. I highly recommend reading it. Even if you don't like it, it's not very long, so it won't waste too much time to try it out.
