This review contains possibly spoilers. I remember reading it back in Early 2017 and following it till it ended in Early 2019. My opinion to it changed quite over time. First of all, the fanbase is probably one of the worst, most toxic ones I've seen so far. Shipping a Serial Killer, Abuser and Rapist with the victim is a big no-no. Fans, Sangwoo Stans and Fujoshis don't care though. Many of Sangwoo stans even went so far to victimblame the Character Bum.
The Art is probably the best one in a Manhwa I've read so far, but there were many panels were characters wouldn't have
faces, or the Author would sometimes forget things in the panels. And while the Art itself became way better with each season, I prefer Season 1's art style over the other ones, it suits the atmosphere perfectly.
The Characters Bum and Sangwoo were deep, but I was amazed every time with how stupid the Side Characters and Police were. Also, Seungbae deserved more love.
Yoon Bum is the Protagonist, a pitiful loner type guy who is a victim of severe abuse throughout his whole life. I liked the way the Author showed how his Obsession slowly turned into Stockholm Syndrome due to Sangwoo abusing him. The Author also hinted at his BPD in the beginning and showed several symptoms throughout the story (Bum's self harming for example). I honestly just felt bad for him the whole time, he was severely abused by LITERALLY everyone and used like a sex toy his whole life.
Sangwoo is the second Protagonist, the Antagonist. I am really, really not a fan of him due to how abusive, narcissistic and homophobic he is and his Fans didn't make it any better. It's the Ted Bundy Situation all over again. I don't think that I ever despised a character more than him. Fangirls of his think that Looks=Good so they ignore/deny the fact how he kidnapped, beat, tortured and killed women or beat, tortured and raped Bum. Endeavor from MHA is literally hated by everyone cuz he abused his wife and kid and is currently going through a redemption arc, yet Sangwoo, who is a hundred times worse and beyond redemption since the beginning, is beloved by horny Yaoi Fans who ignore the personality, but are in for his looks, despite him being the equivalent of human garbage. I can admit that there was also more to him though, although it never changed my opinion over him, he was a selfish piece of shit to the very end and his death wasn't as satisfying as it should have been.
Seungbae is the Tritagonist, basically Sangwoo's enemy and the only one who could save Bum from his situation. He goes through some Development over the story.
Since it's a Manhwa, there was no Music of course, but I remember that the Song Deep Horrors was used for a specific chapter (Which was also my favorite chapter).
As for the Genres, it's barely a Yaoi. There is no love, it's a abusive relationship and Sangwoo is homophobic, confirmed by the Author to be hetero and doesn't give a shit (Not like the abuse/torture/rape scenes were making that clear enough for the Fujoshis lmao) about Bum, only using him as replacement. Yoon Bum is bi.
Overall, I basically have a Love Hate Relationship for it. Personally, my favorite season was the first one due to the Mind Games which is why I guess part of the reason why I'm giving it the lowest rating. First of all, many things were left unexplained till the end. Plot points which came up in Season 1 were retconned in later seasons as it never happend. Then there were characters who were forgotten for a majority of the Manwha (Seungbae for example, and another one). Many Rape Scenes felt like "Sexual Abuse Porn" for the Fujoshis. It also felt like that the Author was contracting herself for what she was actually going for, as some of the Special Chapters felt like Fanservice for the toxic Shippers, trying to put Sangwoo in a different light. And it's not just Koogi, but the fans as well. Best example is when Bum's Grandma is trying to excuse Bum's Uncle disturbing abuse on Bum, because the Uncle had a sad past. Koogi was literally pointing at all the Readers and Shippers that a sad past is no excuse for Sangwoo's crimes and abuse on Bum, but they all were either too delusional to catch that, or didn't give a shit. I think the Manhwa was special, but not only got worse with each season, but also had the wrong fanbase, unfortunately. I really wish that I could have given it a better rating because it was one hell of a complicated ride, but there were too many things that bothered me over time.
There seems to be some tension about the merit of Killing Stalking due to a toxic fanbase and relatively questionable content, so there are a few things that should be made clear right off the bat: Killing Stalking is NOT a Romance.
Yes, the series centers around a pairing is gay. Yes, it is sexually explicit. But it is NOT cute. It is NOT hot. It is not about the romance, if you can even consider it that.
What it IS is a Psychological Thriller manhwa that truly excels in every category, and I’ll be addressing some of the discourse surrounding it first.
Yaoi is a very
loaded genre in terms of both content and fanbase—There are some (a lot) of BL (short for boy’s love, i.e. everything male x male no matter how explicit or not explicit the content) that are extremely fetishizing and problematic, perpetuating a “female fantasy” of what gay relationships are like with tropes such as rape and pedophilia. A good portion of the fanbase would also consider themselves diehard fujoshis/yaoi fans (fujoshis literally meaning rotten girl, as in “I'm rotten for reading about gay relationships” which isn’t homophobic at all of course) that glorify such tropes and deny any criticism that comes their way. This portion of the fanbase also tends to be the loudest and most unapologetic, which is why they’re looked down upon by non-BL readers as they should be.
However, many non-BL readers then go to label all BL and BL readers according to these trends because these trends are the most “loudest” (cringey and vocal fujoshis, notorious rape and pedophilia yaoi series). Do you see where this is going?
So now we have Killing Stalking, a twisted story about two mentally unstable people in an incredibly toxic and unhealthy relationship, and those two people are male. So not only is it now labeled as a Yaoi and inheriting all the stereotypes that come with that genre, but it’s also now inherited a fanbase that definitely has a few crazies that will see that relationship as hot.
And so then non-BL readers have this opinion, or at the very least a preconception, about what Killing Stalking is: a gay torture porn that is the epitome of fucked up yaoi.
Just to be clear, the blame doesn’t fall just on the crazy fujoshis. If you have a Thriller with straight, ‘normal’ romance it’s still a Thriller. If you have a Thriller with gay romance, like Killing Stalking it’s suddenly become Yaoi. When series have gay (particularly male x male) relationships, that series will suddenly get the “Gay label.” It’ll be placed on a special Gay bookshelf where all the other books with The Gay are placed. Even if there is a substantial amount of gay content (like with Killing Stalking), the main genre is far overshadowed by the fact that it’s Gay.
With Killing Stalking, I imagine that a lot of people see the Yaoi tag and automatically turn away, or are at least somewhat deterred. Then they hear about or see the violence/abuse/psychological aspect and they tie the two together and think, “oh, so it’s weird gay torture porn,” whereas if the couple was straight it would just be “an abusive relationship.”
To reiterate what I said before, Killing Stalking is first and foremost a Psychological Thriller. The story centers around Yoon Bum, a loner with attachment issues, who falls in love with Oh Sangwoo, a popular, charismatic, attractive guy that he finds out is also secretly a serial murderer (you learn all this in the prologue and first chapters don’t worry). For some reason Sangwoo decides to spare his life after Bum confesses to him and thus an incredibly complex relationship/character dynamic ensues and evolves.
There is gore, sex, murder, and some fucked up themes surrounding all of those. I don't want to reveal too much because the reveals are worth experiencing, but does get a little heavy at times, but if you can handle it then it’s definitely worth the read.
The characters, their development, and their relationship are for sure the winning point of Killing Stalking. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it as well done as in KS. Koogi does a masterful job in this aspect in multiple ways: first, both Bum and Sangwoo have extreme emotional depth, the complexity of which is slowly revealed throughout the story. While Bum seems like and is a quiet, socially anxious stalker and Sangwoo seems like and is a manipulative psychopath/sociopath, the degree to which these characterizations are true and how they change throughout the story as the two characters interact and develop is the most interesting part.
From the first several chapters, we already learn that Sangwoo has several sides to his personality and is able to project and manipulate a certain image of himself based on his audience. This leads to a variety of questions: which Sangwoo is the “true” Sangwoo, what triggers him to act a certain way/shift personalities, do more sides exist, why all these different sides of him exist, and how they originate. At the same time, we begin to see how these sides of him change and develop as other characters and events impact his psyche.
With Bum, our understanding of him is totally different. The story is told mainly from his point of view and so the reader is let in on his thoughts and feelings from the start. However, as the story progresses, the reader learns that what Bum hides from the readers and consequently, himself, reveals just as much about him as what we are otherwise shown and told. This also means that one of the driving forces of Bum’s character development is how he changes and evolves, whereas with Sangwoo, the focus is primarily on unearthing his already existing complexity. These two different modes of character development are a testament to Koogi’s ability to create characters that aren’t just interesting and complex, but also complex in different ways.
This leads into the second thing Koogi does really well in terms of characters, which is the execution of their development. More specifically, Koogi is a master of storytelling, subtlety, and a slow, bit-by-bit reveal that isn’t too vague nor too explicit. Especially in the second half of the series, each new chapter begins to feel like an additional puzzle piece in the larger puzzle that is what the hell is going on. The foreshadowing is also very well done. This is particularly true for Sangwoo’s past, which becomes more complicated than anyone could’ve imagined at the beginning. There are definitely a lot of “woah” and “oh shit” moments throughout the story that are credited to the way Koogi is able to build suspense and execute reveals.
Playing into that is the way the characters’ relationships reveal more about each character while simultaneously flowing completely naturally. Nothing feels forced and everything slots together truly like a puzzle, creating a seamless and immersive experience. Even the sexually explicit scenes have a purpose and are rarely just for the sake of appealing to fans.
Another thing that makes KS so seamless is how interconnected the plot is with the characters. Plot events happen because it makes sense for the characters. It’s as if the characters are deciding the plot, which is how it is in real life and how it should be in non-fantasy, real-world manhwa.
The suspense and story are especially gripping because Sangwoo’s mysteriousness and mental state make him unpredictable and able to take the story anywhere. This is established from an early point onward and keeps the story from falling into cliches. The plot never gets boring for the majority of the story.
However, because of the focus on the characters, the last third-ish of Killing Stalking ends up becoming not as plot driven as some other Thriller/Horror series near the middle and end. This isn’t necessarily a good or bad thing and is pretty expected given the large psychological aspect of KS. There are also some times when the plot does slow down a little. It usually makes sense later on in establishing a certain image/mood, but can feel flat in the moment.
The art is stellar. The style is pleasing while avoiding same face syndrome and the color palette nicely complements the mood of the manhwa. Art plays a large part in the quality of storytelling through things such as perspective, angles, and progression of panels, and it’s safe to say both are top notch.
I will say that it does get explicit, both with sex and with gore. It’s definitely not the worst I’ve seen and it’s artfully done so that it’s not “depictions and close ups of gore/sex for the sake of gore/sex.”
Finally, I highly HIGHLY suggest you read the chapter reddit threads for the later chapters when it becomes more subtle and confusing. I only did it from chapter 55/67 onward and a few random chapters before then that I was confused about. This is because sometimes you might miss out on crucial foreshadowing and they usually pick up on it in those threads. People also have some interesting theories and predictions that enhance the experience a lot, given that so much is left to be implied/not explicit until much later.
Go onto reddit.com/r/killingstalking and search “chapter ##” and you’ll get the discussion thread for each chapter when that chapter was released. There most usually won’t be spoilers because future chapters haven’t been released yet at the time the thread is made.
Do NOT read this if:
- You’re here for the Yaoi/a “dark but cute” romance. Sorry but the only ships you should shipping are Yoonbum x Therapy and Sangwoo x Prison. If you ultimately think the main pairing is cute or hot you need to stop fetishizing gay couples and you probably also some need help.
- You can’t handle gore, murder, physical and psychological abuse
DO read this for:
- The best characters + character development I’ve ever seen, hands down
- Unique, suspenseful story that avoids cliches
- Amazing storytelling through pacing, foreshadowing, etc
- Amazing art
Even if you’re deterred by the Yaoi tag, give it a shot. It’s not a Yaoi with Psychological Thriller aspects, it’s a Psychological Thriller with Yaoi aspects.
Read the chapter discussion threads on Reddit.
*******Also! if you do plan on reading it, here are some things to think about/watch out for while reading:
- Placement and types of injuries (won't be hard to miss)
- Clothing (won't be hard to miss)
- Who has power, and what actions or objects show that (becomes very interesting near the end)
- Significance of the different floors of the house (interesting to think about)
Beware of Spoilers.
I'm not into Yaoi, needless to say, i know it wasn't for me. But I was interested. After reading it, it's not something I would consider "Yaoi" in any way. It's a Psychological Thriller, much Abuse and Toxic Stuff. It seemed the whole time like the Author tried to do something, but all I could catch were Cliche troupes.
Yoon Bum-Chapter 1 literally shows a flashback of him being almost raped in military, he's underweight, he's lonely, he's mentally ill, he's hurt, he's traumatized and that stays for the rest of the Manwha. He got abused by everyone, his parents died when he was
little, his uncle abused him physically, sexually and mentally, he never had friends and was bullied, it got revealed later that he was actually raped in military several times and Sangwoo does all of that stuff combined to him and even worse. It's like the Author wants you to pity him and I guess it worked because his life is literally hell and makes Guts(Berserk)'s past look nice. No idea if the car hit him in the end or not, either way, its just tragic.
Oh Sangwoo-A Sociopath. A Serial Killer. A Abuser. A Rapist. A Narcissist. Everything that would make you hate someone. Many, including me despise him. So he's hated, right? Right? Well, not quite. Unfortunately somehow, his crazy fans love him. Had a off-screen death and got away quite easily for what he's done to so many people.(Karma Houdini). I expected him to be finally caught and rot in jail.
Yang Seungbae-Had more potential. No idea how his past even was, that, or it was so unimportant that I already forgot about it. Only character in the police who knew how Sangwoo already is. Unfortunately for him, everyone other than him over there is quite dumb that it makes me even wonder how they've gotten their jobs. Seungbae also had many moments where he acted dumb. I guess I'm happy that it ended got for him?
Art was alright, had many disturbing scenes where I had to look away(Poor Bum).
So yeah, quite an experience, but not something I would want to read again. Kinda overrated imo.
I'm a bit late to this manhwa, even though I first caught wind of it months ago and never actually read it until now, and for good reason. There's always been a lot of stigma surrounding this particular work. And, after reading it, I've been left with a lot of mixed feelings. Before getting into it, please note that Killing Stalking is not a BL. Yoon Bum + Sangwoo are not a couple. It was a beyond abusive relationship. Sangwoo abused Bum the second he got there, and it was NOT love.
story; 7- as many people pointed out below, seungbae wasn't
used to his full potential. Koogi never really gave a lot of insight to his past, and it didn't seem like much thought was put into his background. And if it was, I'd have loved to see more of him. He just seemed like a convenient character to use as explanation for the ending.
art; 9- as ambiguous as my opinion is on the series, I thoroughly enjoyed the artwork. It had this sort of cold, grimy tone to it that paired neatly with the storyline.
character; 5- The character Yoon Bum was made to look like a textbook abuse victim. Scrawny, frighteningly weak, subject to abuse by everyone, and easily manipulated. Not to say it's necessarily a bad thing, but there wasn't much development of him, or anyone, for that matter. Not all manhwas/mangas deserve a happy ending, and even as i think about it there wasn't much of a way to end this story in a satisfactory way, but some sort of development would've been nice to see. (I will acknowledge the part where Bum realizes for just a few panels that Sangwoo never loved him, and was more of just someone who was easy to manipulate). I feel as if Seungbae should've gotten more attention, as he seemed perfect for an arc in itself.
enjoyment; 3- I don't like giving bad ratings, so it was hard giving this even a 3. I was anxious a lot throughout the manhwa, but that's on me. I feel as if Koogi was just throwing in sex scenes to fuel her fujoshi audience. And the last thing we need in the KS fandom of all fandoms is a fujoshi fandom. Killing Stalking never was and never has been a yaoi, or BL, or whatever you'd prefer to call it. It was an abusive relationship. I'll admit, chapters like the skiing one or the theme park one made me forget about the storyline momentarily, and actually think Sangwoo may have held affection for Bum. But it became clearly evident in the end that Sangwoo was beyond forgiveness, and mentally/physically tormented Bum so much that he lulled him into believing that he really did love him (also note how after all they'd been through Sangwoo didn't hesitate to try to kill Bum when he had any feeling that he might've tried to kill him/ went against his wishes). It's even depicted in Bum's past, when his grandmother tries to excuse his uncle's behavior as just him having a sad childhood. Sangwoo was in an abusive household as well, yet he decided to deal with it by becoming a serial killer and lacking any sort of affection for anyone. Both were stories of abuse, of which a psychological impact was left untreated and spiraled further down into what it became, yet one was more accepted because the person who was abused was more good-looking and attractive.
Bum had severe attachment issues from his own abuse, which led to his warped image of love, added with his obsession over Sangwoo would sadly lead to what the ending became. Overall, the overuse of sex scenes was just seen to me as fanservice to the entirely wrong audience, and there were too many holes in the story for me to leave unnoticed and just enjoy the manhwa.
overall; 4- i don't agree with this rating, since this manhwa wasn't really decent, per say, but it wasn't poor overall either. The artwork was very nice, and complimented the storyline nicely. But I just wish Koogi had made more use of Seungbae. Although I'm pretty sure she herself confirmed that Sangwoo and Bum were never a couple, she still very much advertised many sex scenes to a fujoshi audience. Just because Sangwoo was good looking, did not give an excuse for his behavior. I just couldn't enjoy this manhwa from the overflowing content of abuse and sex (even though I do enjoy many horror/suspense manga/manhwa). In this case, or for any in general, BL just doesn't mix with horror/gore. It didn't seem like the horror part of it was focused on as much as it should've, and was more of a side dish to go alongside the sexual and physical abuse that Bum was subject to. I wish Koogi the best in her future endeavors, and for some fans in this fanbase to learn the difference between an actual relationship and literal extreme sexual, physical, and mental abuse that led to the inevitable downfall of the two main characters.
I remember hearing about Killing Stalking for the first time from a friend who was obsessed with romance yaoi manga ... I did my research the next day and there it was.What an interesting manhwa i said to myself..
I don't read yaoi,but i found this one very different and interesting from any manhwa or yaoi stories out there.
So now we have Killing Stalking, a very twisted story about YoonBum,a boy who likes another boy and stalks him on social media. At least that's how the story starts.It gets fucked up very soon and you get to see how the toxic but
addicting relationship between these two are. I really enjoyed the story,it's a rollercoaster of emotions and it's making you feel either sad or scared through the pages.
The ending made me really emotional.I wouldn't ship their relationship of course, but somehow the Author really made me feel like i was in Yoonbums head when he got the ashes-heard from the grandma that he was screaming bums name-when he had flashbacks of him, i got really upset about all this..
Very nice art style..I feel like the art was changing through and i really liked that.I also like the fact that they used specific tones of colours which put you into a specific mood too(like when things go dangerous ,some red tones drop and not only)The character art is also great,i loved their characteristics,their faces,and their eyes(!) they really showed emotion.
eeek! i love the characters.. bum is a typical antisocial boy with sad eyes who stalks his crush,Sangwoo,a hot tall man..who is also a psycho and a serial killer...what else can i say? There is gore, sex, murder, and some fucked up themes surrounding those too as well,the characters, their development, and their relationship are for sure the winning point of Killing Stalking.
i did enjoy this manga a lot.. and i finished the full manga in 5 months.. and it was worth paying for it.. thanks Koogi!
I liked it! i really did liked it,the story,the art,character development,everything was on point.. if i had to say something bad about this manhwa it would be the ending only..that's why i gave it a 9.. but aside from that the whole manga was a great experience. it's sad to think that a lot of people see the yaoi tag and automatically turn away,and lose interest as if this is a violent gay torture porn.Cause really if you read the story you're gonna change your mind.
(DO NOT READ IF YOU'RE NOT INTO DARK THEMES THO)
I think the thing that makes me the most sad, is that... no one will ever know what these two went through. The trauma they experienced, and the physical and mental abuse that made them who they were. That is what gets to me the most. Their stories are lost, and no one will ever be the wiser. On one hand, Sangwoo got what he deserved, but on another, I feel... so bad for him. Then there's Bum... that hit me hardest. I wanted his life to turn around for the better, at least. This ending was so sad.
Also, I don't know if anyone else noticed this, but... Sangwoo died the same way his mother tried to kill him as a child... smothered by a pillow. That realization hurt, a lot.
But aside from that..for all of you who feel sad, Bum is with Sangwoo now. Though he didn't mean to, he fulfilled his promise to him.
"If I die first, I want you to die, too. If you fail, just keep trying. Don't let me down. Ever."
Killing Stalking... I was wondering why MAL hadn't added you to the database being this one of the most popular Manhwas at the time of its publication but well things that only MAL will know, first English is not my strong point, there will be mistakes if you don't come to me privately saying “You have mistakes here, here, there” insert image of genius meme .jpg, I'm human, I learn English alone by my own means obviously I'm going to make mistakes so don't come to fill your stupid messages with that, second there will be Spoilers, third in the conclusion there will be 2
points of view, as I saw 2 years ago, the moment of its peak (2017) until this year (2019) so let's start.
The story begins with Bum, a shy boy who falls in love with Sangwoo, a popular boy in all areas, social, work, etc... But this boy, to whom Bum has a strong attraction to him (and obsession by the way) hides something he would never have imagined... Serial killer. With that simple Sipnosis it can call your attention or not but you dive into this one and you won't be able to stop, it leaves you spicy with the following episode, when I started reading it I went for the chapter 31 or 32 and I read everything in 1 single night. We don't deny that it's a common story but it has that thing that not everyone has in which is to keep the reader glued. That's what every author wants with his creations, right?
Something that I like more manwhas than mangas is that they have color and more pages, in the manga in a page they center many emotions and moments things that confuse us a lot, in the Manwha each emotion and moment has its own page, That explains why the manwhas have more than 100 pages, it can be read in the western way from left to right but something I don't like is the detail of the drawing, they are not very detailed, I explain myself, there were pages that at first sight you couldn't identify what it was, if it was an avocado, a teapot, etc. EYES! For God's sake! the author was very weak with the 3 damned hiatuses that god gave us during all this publication and even so you can see many times the drawing very weak and on the eyes sometimes she didn't draw them well, she had one drawn and the other half but most of the times she didn't draw it, but coming out of that horror, emphasize the sex scene and well one or another very detailed rape, when you saw "the passion" and murder scenes also detailed and raw but for the mere fact that you could not identify things and eyes I do not give his 10 with 8 is a lot.
Here I will talk about 3 things, About Bum, Sangwoo and the super toxic relationship of Bum and Sangwoo, I will only talk about the characteristics of the characters, their defects etc. Mrs. I want to focus very little on the relationship of these 2 guys.
As I said he is a shy boy, in love with Sangwoo because of his charms but something I didn't say was that bum was abused in the militia and by his uncle, sexually, physically, psychologically abused by this gentleman, that's why his shyness, his clumsiness because of the traumas generated by his life and also a dependence on Sangwoo. There's even a break because this is more to be discussed in the relationship with him.
A very popular boy among the girls and with the boys (Example Bum) and that his life seems to be a wonder but no, it is not like that, he was also physically and psychologically abused by his father, since he beat him and his mother, that is to say, domestic violence which generates a trauma but this does not stay here, his mother, his mother also abused him not only psychologically but sexually. Up to here he left.
Now I'll talk about your toxic relationship
Bum generates a very horrible dependency on Sangwoo and vice versa. The moment Bum enters Sangwoo's house without his consent, she realizes that something strange is happening, goes down to the basement and sees a dead body, there at that moment Sangwoo hits him and holds him hostage, Bum tries to escape but doesn't have the courage to think that she "loves him" in short, Poor Bum suffers from Stockholm Syndrome, Sangwoo takes out all his frustration from the traumas of childhood on poor Bum until he rapes him, Sangwoo has sex with girls while Bum sees all that (Sangwoo is aware of this), gets him involved in murder, the moment Bum can be free from Sangwoo is stupid! He doesn't take advantage of it and becomes Sangwoo's accomplice. Sangwoo is a cunning person. In order to get out of the police, Sangwoo kisses Bum and says he's her partner and the fool continues this charade. “But what's wrong with Valentina?" Then this officer hits Sangwoo because he knows that he is involved in the murder of the girls and their parents (Yes, this boy killed his parents, well not his father, it was the mother, but he killed the mother, I hope you understood me) and then the poor officer is suspended just because the asshole Sangwoo says that he hit him because he is homophobic.
Sangwoo is a pest, his mother has caused him irreversible trauma, I don't say "Oh poor man". Everything he does to Bum s something unforgivable, he breaks her legs for her mere madness, she dresses him as a woman, so she can remember her mother, what madness, she rapes him! With a dildo until the poor man bleeds, she has sex with other people so Bum can see through her closet. Bum did not justify it with his mental problems, he has low self-esteem and the worst thing is that he has Stockholm syndrome, at the time they were talking about his end (I mean the death of the two of them, I don't shadow their "relationship") they made a pact that in summary would be "You die and I die" which happened absolutely, Sangwoo died and soon after Bum because of his madness and not accept that Sangwoo left this world died too, as they did in their deal
I enjoyed every second, every minute of it (except for the 3 damn hiatuses of months of the author) this Manwha gave me a good time, when the author was in hiatus I read it again and I never got bored, so what I can say, outside the fanservide I enjoyed it quite a lot. For more enjoyment reading it from a cell phone in your room in the dark listening to your good music.
A Manwha that I would say perfectly retracts people with an unstable mentality, which have been repressed either by the traumas that have happened to the protagonists of this story, curiously the abuses suffered by our protagonists are the main in the world for a mental instability if not treated in time and what happens when these 2 people come together ... They bring nothing good. That's how I see it now.
The way I saw it in 2017.
A Romantic Manwha about 2 misunderstood people who do their best every day.
In general 2 different points of view (2017 I didn't make it so long because I got lazy xD) and last thing... For some users at what point is this said to be a romantic Manhwa? Where on Myanimlist does it say that? Not even the author herself says that.
Thanks for reading this super long review I hope you liked it, have a nice day.
