Baek Na-kyum is a young man with a single talent: painting explicit depictions of men caught in the throes of passion. Having published his pornographic art under a pseudonym for several years, Na-kyum has ultimately decided to quit painting for good. That is, until the appearance of Yoon Seungho—a nobleman who abuses his authority to force Na-kyum to return to his illicit hobby.

Seungho, notorious for his sodomizing ways and insatiable lust, coerces Na-kyum to illustrate his regular private affairs. Although he initially tries to resist, Seungho's indecent nights of thrusting men into the very depths of pleasure awakens something in Na-kyum. However, Yoon Seungho's side is a dangerous place to be, and Na-kyum quickly finds himself tangled in a web of desire and jealousy—with many a looming threat hoping to devour him.

I will give my best review with no spoilers. (At the time of writing review, the manwha is not yet complete) Updated as of 2022 start.

Story - 9
Art - 10
Character - 9
Overall - 10

This is an absolutely beautiful manwha, and really sets itself apart from the rest on many levels. The art is gorgeous, even for the usual full color manwha. The story really pulls you in, and you feel fully invested in what is happening and to whom. As well, this is not your average yaoi. While the content can get very smutty at times, you don't really feel that "oh, look! ...

This is beyond disgusting. I genuinely don't know how people enjoy this, but the whole story is literally romanticizing r*pe. If you like this, you're actually sick. The main character is literally scared of the love interest, so I'm not sure why y'all like to ship the main character with the love interest, but it's whatever. Some people might say that the seme is trying to get better, but in my opinion, he hasn't changed at all, and even if he did, the damage was already done. The bitch is a r*pist, and there's no excuse for that. There wasn't a moment in the story ...

This is perfect example of artistic talent being wasted on a horrible story. While the while historical concept would have had tons of potential, Painter of Night just reeks of romanticzing abuse and rape. While something like Killing Stalking had actual writing in it (That unfortunately got worse, yes, but still), Potn has nothing in that sense going on for it. It's rape porn through and through.

Story: Nakyum, a peasant who loves to draw erotic images of men just so happend to get kidnapped by a handsome, sex-obsessed nobleman, Seungho. As if that already didn't feel forced enough, the story BARELY progresses. Seungho basically fucks ...
