Mixed Feelings
For a three chapter manhwa, I was impressed with the quality of the art and the unique story it tries to tell. The protagonist, a man who has to buy words from others in order to write his poems, meets a mysterious woman with a certain tattoo, and we proceed to find out their tragic histories. Since it's so short, the character's personalities are not that defined, but they were sympathetic enough to want to keep reading.

While I do admire how simply and quickly the story was portrayed, I feel that for this reason, it lacked a lot more substance than it had the potential ...
