In an attempt to ward off yet another one of Jin Yeong-seo's suitors, Shin Ha-ri goes on a blind date in her best friend's place with the goal of ruining the meeting. Arriving in a thick layer of makeup, a ridiculous pink wig, and a seductive outfit, Ha-ri is prepared to scare the man away so badly that Yeong-seo's father will be forced to stop setting his daughter up on blind dates. However, the handsome young man who appears in front of Ha-ri is none other than Kang Tae-mu, the newly appointed CEO of the company she works at.

Despite Ha-ri's attempts to act as crazy and undesirable as possible, Tae-mu remains indifferent during their date and even proposes to Ha-ri—whom he still believes is Yeong-seo. Caught in a web of deceit, Ha-ri must find a way to reject the oddly persistent Tae-mu or risk being exposed and losing her job. However, the more Tae-mu pursues Ha-ri, the more she begins to question her feelings toward him.

Truly recommended for a light read.
It is a simple romantic tale where the ML is perfect in everything, nothing more and nothing less.
The plot starts differently than other romantic manhua/mahwa but then the unfolding is very similar to others I have read before.
I have been waiting for the Side stories to be published as well.
The main story does not end badly, certainly the side stories complete the narrative although one I would have liked them to have delved more deeply into it (I won't say who otherwise I'm doing spoilers...enjoy your reading).
I appreciated the graphic style, the line with the story.
Otherwise it fits.

what a corny plot, sign me up.

that being said, there was a section where i found kang taemoo absolutely repulsive despite his oh so hot visuals. however, this kind of manhwa should be read without any kind of critical thinking which is why i still came around to give it an overall rating of eight. shin hari's situation is very relatable and i could see why she went around the situation in the manner she did. second couple stole it for me. i adored how their story progressed and (debatable) could be better than the main leads.

chae suhjn please give me a chance.

If you're the type of reader impatient with a story's progress, the beginning may be pretty dull for you. But as the story goes on you'll feel a rollercoaster of emotions. Your standard for a guy will surely get higher, tho it does not exist in the real-life, sad.

The art is *chefs kiss. My laptop is full of KANG TAE MU's image of hotness.
This manhwa will tell you how much communication is important in a relationship. And of course, with comprehension.

You'll surely enjoy this manhwa. Some of the scenes will picture some real-life ...
