well i just finished the manhwa , and i guess see-wah loved see-joon not only as a brother but also a lover (i only got this hunch by reading what the narrator always says), but when see-joon neglected her in the few chapter she found relief in Gi-hoon and after that she fell in love with him and she realize she loved gi-hoon than see-joon

soo thats what i think and the ending is so sad

The korean's pull no punshes that is for sure. I knew it was going to end like this but i read it any way. So really it was the Dad come uppings at the end. He was the original sinner.

SOMEONE explain this shit to me, I dont understand the beginning and ending quote and the relevance to the plot " would you rather be loved by everyone..", I kind of get it but I wasnt really sure what its trying to say. Also it seemed the girl truly loved not her brother but the other guy, am I the only one that thinks so, I think she just loved her brother because everyone else detested her, but that guy was the only one to truly see her as a real person? Im confused about the ending and the logic behind this.

Yeah, you're right. By the end it was clear the Seh Wah only loved her brother as a brother, and was actually in love with Gi Hoon.

It's honestly sad that either one of them died, but can I still say that the ending was great? It summed it up perfectly and the story telling was done really good as well.

Wow, truly a diamond in the rough. It was jarring and impacting and truly dragged me in. I enjoyed seeing the story play out and discovering more layers of each character. Truly magical storytelling and breathtaking art. You could say that I was expecting to feel more emotion that would really shake me (judging by the reviews) and was a little unsatisfied. Really well done, though. The story really knew what it was and what it wanted to be and stuck with it, never flip-flopping and the ending sits well with me.

moving on.

When I started reading this, I kinda wondered if this could lead to anything good.. and for sure I was surprised beyond my imagination by the late volumes of the manga.

It starts a bit slow, but takes it's time explaining the characters basic personality(but both twins went completely 180 degrees by the end)

The reactions of characters were weird from time to time, but nothing too unrealistic.

The story was getting more and more entangling as it dragged on, unlike the usual opposite of getting boring.

Albeit a bit predictable... even too predictable - most of the twists were pretty easily foreseen.. it still was pretty interesting to see how it played through in the end.
The ending brought a good closure and the morale of the story was explained pretty well over the course of the manga.

A drama worth giving a try.

Great ending tbh it was worth the read. I'd have been a lot more satisfied if the author didn't spoon feed me the Gi hoon and Seh wah relationship.

Well that was depressing. From the early going, I just knew something tragic may happen and welp, I wasn't wrong.

I liked the manga, would probly re-read it.. except for the last 3 chapters. Though they were very poorly written. ANd majorly disliked the ending. BUt really good overall. I wanted Sewa and Gi-Hoon to be <3 ...

I liked the manga it was interesting, but the ending just confused me. Maybe I'm only having complex feelings because I wanted Se-wa to end up with Se-joon... I don't know, but I don't feel like she really loved Gi Hoon... I still think she loved her brother...

Also I hated Gi Hoon! Coming in between twins! Unforgivable!

I feel like everything just ended perfectly. The only thing that I expected to see but that I didn't was an underlining cause to their attachment. I guess sharing a life-threatening illness as twins could have twisted them and then they grew into it, but it's surprising that it would go to this degree.

In any case, I loved Gi-Hoon. I don't think he wanted revenge so much as to be close to her. Both the girl he fell for at first sight and the heart of his own twin. He was obsessed, but he didn't fully understand his own obsession. I got the feeling that he was resolved at the end to accept his own emotions. I'm glad he lived.

Mostly, I feel for Sei-wa. She just wanted to love and be loved, but it wasn't til the end that she fully comprehended what it meant to love another. She was finally able to feel calm. It seemed like she knew that she was going to die but she decided to see her love through.

Hauntingly bittersweet. Twisted yet pure. A tragic tale that is beautifully crafted and earnestly told. It could have been so much more had the twins' relationship been more properly developed.

Shame it had to end like this. Still, a rare gem if you can look past the obvious incest theme. The last few chapters bore so much resemblances to Oyasumi Punpun it scares me.

I found the manhwa by accident when searching for The Flowers of Evil manga of the same name and came across this. I was not disappointed, I really enjoyed the reading and finished it within a few hours. Although I didn't think Se-wah would die & did have a feelig something would about her illness would happen. From a previous chapter when Se-wah faints and Se-joon explains how she tends to fake it sometimes, Gi-hoon then says what is he going to do if it is real. From that I assumed something about her illness would come up again in later chapters, just not resulting in her death! Part of me wished Se-wah and Gi-hoon could of lived "happily ever after", but I think the ending the mangaka* (not sure what a comic artist is called in Korea) chose was tragically perfect to me.

Also, the title of the manhwa reminded me of one of my favorite books titled, Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews, which is also about forbidden love between siblings/incest. I found it interesting that both about incest had flowers mentioned in their titles. Overall, I enjoyed reading it and am glad I stumbled across it.

Why was everyone cheering for Gi-hoon damn. I wanted the end to be a little different, like Se-joon and Se-wa wouldn't leave alone but together. I loved them together! But stil I am satisfied with the ending. So 10/10

But can anyone help me? The last few sentences I don't really understand, can someone explain what was the meaning of the "to be loved by one, but that would be impossible. Because I...." What shoud be after the "because I" I have no idea, please somebody tell me I am curious!!!

I think it ended in the only real way it could.. I was surprised at how graphic Se-wah's death was and the resolution it had... the things it meant.

Her father misdiagnosing a disease on purpose to get a heart for his own daughter.
The brother ending up with the biggest sis complex in the world and utterly obsessed with protecting his girlfriend from everyone else.
Gi-hoon coming to try and find the child that received the heart only to fall in love with that very person, though I have no idea what the end purpose of it was.
How things spiraled into utter madness. It's possible the mother noticed that the twins were naked or lightly clothed after they'd had sex but, since the two had already established before that they slept together at night, I don't think she really thought about it because they're siblings and it's normal for them to do so. They were both shown to be more or less fully covered so, she didn't notice that neither of them were wearing any underwear whatsoever.

To be honest I find the father pitiable. After all, can you imagine how he must have felt, a doctor but unable to save his own child? He sinned in order to save his own daughter.
Se-wah was the most innocent of them, toyed with emotionally by her brother ever since her surgery, she ended up only relying on him, only needing him just as her brother wanted her to.
It's her brother that's inexcusable morally the most I feel, sure his father killed a child but, I can understand his reasoning very clearly, and he followed through with it. It was something he did for his child to save her. The brother on the other hand messed with his sister, fucked her life up by making her utterly dependent on him, then, decided to begin to distance himself from her, perhaps afraid of what he had made. Getting his own girlfriend, toying with that girl's emotions and often using her to psychologically torment his sister.

In the end, I think that Se-wah knew she was going to die, she either ran out of or didn't take the drugs that stopped the rejection of her transplanted organ and she fully would have known either one. She didn't want to leave her brother alone, she couldn't, but at the same time she wanted to give her heart to the one she truly loved, hence she called him again and again. Even though she took away the heart of Gi-hoon's sibling, she ended up giving her own back to him.

Though that said, she might have died due to some other issue that the extreme stress of her situation caused her, I don't know if throwing up blood can be caused by organ rejection.

Regardless, it was a very very tragic tale with a very fitting ending.

The brother decided to follow his sister into the after life, as he couldn't go on without her.

I hope that their parents, if nothing else, their mother didn't end up committing suicide afterwards, I can't imagine how painful it might be to lose one child first then the other to suicide in a way that made it clear that he was following his sister.

Thank you for reading.

Aaaaaaaaa that was so sad :(((( Se-wa dying was expected, but it was such an intense scene accompanied with Se-Joon's reactions.... damn. And Se-Joon dying was so sad, he slit his wrists while holding their pictures.... and that flashback at the end with them telling the story.... GOD T_T

On a side note, the fact that it was written by a woman is really easy to spot because the incestuous relationship was not sexualized for the eyes of the audience nor were the girls drawn in an extremely sexual manner. It was nice for a change imo, having no fanservice at all.

This is the first manhwa I've read and it didn't disappoint! A dark, tragic, romantic, psychological tale. I mostly disagreed with the actions of the characters but their feelings were always very palpable and poignant.

9/10, really loved it, even though I sacrificed the day reading it instead of studying for my exams lol.
