17 year old exemplary student Bae Sugu lives alone with his father, the vice principal of his school. Weighed down by his father's expectations, Sugu has to hide his one true passion: swimsuits. He does not know where it comes from, but his passion is pure and genuine - and often misunderstood. But one day, when Sugu is secretly taking pictures of swimsuits by the pool, he is caught by his homeroom teacher who forces him into something ridiculous. Can Sugu find something to get out of the standstill his life has come to? Can his heart beat again?

It's always very interesting to read manhwa, in which we have only 3 volumes and 30 chapters, as well as a huge number of genres.

So "My Heart Is Beating" published by Ha il Kwon in 2009, which is now known for such works as the Annarasumanara and although Annarasumanara published later than MHIB, it is most popular. "My Heart Is Beating" see into teenagers problems, which in turn consist in understanding between father and son and a strange fascination of swimsuits.

The story begins from the face of high school student Bai Sugu, it is a excellent student in the past has always listened to his read more

So, while i was browsing through stuff i have yet to read, i ended up stumbling upon this extremely underrated jewel.

Illustrated by the same guy (Il-Kwon Ha) who did Annarasumanara (go read it!), it's a very heartwarming story of a guy with a swimsuit fetish living with a strict asian parent and, due to certain circumstances, forced by his teacher to crossdress as a girl and play in a girls water polo team. Kinda generic and uninsteresting, right?

Well, while the premise may not sound that exciting or unique (it isn't), the way the story was handled in such a short albeit suitable run is read more

Before i start, sorry if my english not that great. bear with me here.
Have you ever felt the weight of expectation and hope by the people around you? If yes, you know how it feel. This manga represent that feeling of expectation and pressure that we face in our daily life. I feel how this manga is a bit realistic (other than a guy who is cross dressing).

First of all, to make it clear, this is a Korean Manga, or know as Mahwa. Second of all, for me to call this manga a gender bender genre is quite heavy for me it is better to read more

When the expectation doesn’t meet, it has a lot of burden. The boy named sugu has a passion in swimsuits, he like swimsuits but he always hide his passion to his father. His father, the vice principal of his school has a lot of expectations in him like competing over the grades. Their teacher forces him to join in water polo sports unintentionally and dress as a girl because he needs one player. He will stop wearing swimsuits and fake boobs until the teacher has already found a real girl player but that not would happen. They still playing water polo team to read more
