Lee Han-Ah used to be bullied in the 2nd grade for having a ''wide and flat'' butt by a boy in her primary school and has hated him ever since. Now, in high school she is the celebrated, legendary captain of Il-Hwa Girls High School and she is seeking out a pretty boy boyfriend. What happens when she meets the mellow and seemingly perfect Yoo-Min? (Source: Esthétique)
This manhwa is another work of Hwang Mi Ri & have 39 chapter & each chapter has 35 pages..
The story is not a least bit unique & can predict what was gonna happen next. Particularly the 'gang' theme is overly used, but I guess its the trademark of the manhwaga since Hot Blooded Woman is also the other work of Hwang Mi Ri.. Boys like to fight, a naive girl & some hidden agenda but it work out in the end & it ends well. So its not a surprised if there's some similarities within the two manhwa's.
What makes me interested in
Hwang Mi Ri's work, probably the art. I love the manhwa style of art.. The artist uses clean lines, amazing details, the expressions, the backgrounds & the overall outlook of the characters was just too good..
Characters is another thing for me to be interested in a manhwa/manga.. personally, i like all the characters here even the villains.. Uhmm, well, i didnt consider them as villains but rather a troublesome characters maybe cuz they are not that 'evil' as I usually seen in other manga's.. Basically, for me, the characters here are all likeable.. ^_^
I really enjoy this.. !! so I don't really mind any lacking part or the bad points of this series have as long as it doesn't change the fact that it sustains my interest & I keep on laughing throughout the series.. One of my top list is all I have to say..!!
Overall, its a great read & worth reading..!! So if you love the bullying/hate/love/gang theme, its worth a try.. ^^
Story:The story line worked like this, it gave the basic plot and it worked it through to the end and when you think that it should be ending, they throw in another plot twist. All of them were rather predictible, but they kept one on their seats and with the manga.
Art: The art was very detailed. There were a lot of lines in it and the style continued all the way through. The style was executed well and not in anyways overdone... there is such thing as to much detail. Forewarning though, there are some rather graphic scenes where the characters get blodied up. Be
forwarned, as they seem rather accurate and detailed, but nothing that is a gross out.
Character: The characters, how they developed out to their fullness was great to see. Each one of them has a storyline to their lives and it ends up all linking together in the end. However... I get the idea that there was somethings slightly left hanging at the end.
Enjoyment: I am not a major fan of romance, expessully when it gushes and there is a good storyline with it. This had a very good story line to go with it, not to mention great characters. It was also hilarious at times, and sometimes sad, but mostly hilarious, the misconceptions that end up happening.
Overall: It was over all a good experience. I wouldn't wish to reread it as it isn't one of the favorites, but it was a good read and kept me reading. It had nothing special to set it apart from the others, other then the story twists that I have to admit... I've seen in various other mangas. But it was still a good expereince.
I know this manwa doesn't always get the best reviews, and perhaps I am one of the few who think so, but I absolutely loved it!
Sure, the story was somewhat predictable and the art isn't very pretty- but what I loved about the story was the characters. I found them all endearing and hilarious! There were so many parts of this story that just had me in tears laughing. The characters do some ridiculous things (that are not always realistic, but that's all part of the fun) and the way they interact with each other is priceless. Even small characters have distinctive personalities and
funny quirks. The humor is that typical goofy romance-comedy, and it's done brilliantly.
Sure, if you are looking for something deep, intense and intellectual- maybe Cutie Boy isn't for you. But if you want a story that's entertaining, cute and leaves you all fuzzy feeling afterwards, I highly recommend reading it!
