When Tae Yeon Im finds out that the idol star that she's adored for ages is currently attending the same school as her identical cousin, Jung-Woo Im, she convinces her cuz to exploit their similitude and switch places, she will dress as him, attend his school and try to get close to her lover boy. And he will dress as her, attend her school and revel in its sea of babes. Or maybe he just likes wearing a skirt? The plan seems flawless until Tae learns of a bully named Ga-Wun Kim who likes to beat up on poor Jung-Woo. Meanwhile, Jung-Woo finds that being a woman might not be as thrilling as it seems.
Kill Me Kiss Me is your average cross-dress manhwa with a boyish female lead trying to get closer to a boy she likes. Along the way, she finds that acting as her cousin is rougher than really was and finds strength in herself to keep going.
Oh wait, no its not.
Right after the first volume the mangaka decides to throw away the 'side-story' and go into a romance between our original lead and another girl, love struck with our original heroine's identical cousin. The original plot might as well have been thrown away--or better: it should have been a one-shot.
The second arc is completely of irrelevant to the first. Because of the switch in views, character is almost pointless.
Our first lead is Tae, a girl, with girlish thoughts and ideas, but she is willing to act as her cousin and can though she isn't very strong, her bark does plenty for her femininity.
The second psuedo-lead is also a girl, a fangirl in every meaning of the term, and secretly a tough fighter.
This is not a manhwa where relationships blossom, there is no depth to show that. Instead its about the road getting there, making relationships that much more difficult to achieve rather than to work with them.
Overall, the second arc was left with a snooze and disappointment. While I would like to recommend this as a good read, only the first volume is great and the rest of them drag on a more cliche and pointless story. Read the first volume and the first volume only.read more
I didnt think Id actually like this manga, I had bought the 5 volumes 2nd hand for cheep and I read them all in 3 days time! I usually keep to shounen manga so this was something completely different. The story is mainly about girls that have a crush on the pretty boys and the boys fighting in gangs, to put it very bluntly. READ THIS MANGA ITS VERY ENTERTAINING! It's both fun for girls and for boys to read. It has it all, romance, comedy, fighting, genderconfusion and puppies~!
I think Im gonna check if I can get my hands on some more stuff like this,
Kill me kiss me is an amazing manga with 75% comedy and romance. Anyone looking for a romance,comedy and drama manga will love it. The story line is one of a kind and one that you wont find anywhere else. The art is amazing and in a way cute. The characters evolve so much through the whole story and every episode they learn somthing knew about themselves,eachother and the world around them but they also learn to love. Once you start reading this manga you wont be able to stop and when you finish you will be wishing for more i enjoyed this manga very much and i would read it again anytime because of its carefree feel. Overall this manga was funny,romantic and dramatic but not too much of anything it balanced it all out perfectly i give it a 9/10.read more
This story is quite good when you read the first book about Tae Yeon who have fallen for the handsome model Kun Kang and therefore convince her identical cousing Jung Wo to switch place with her so she can meet him, its very entertaining and the twist that the ganster Ga Won falls for Tae when he think she is her cousin Yung Wo makes the whole thing even better, though in the second book it got very confusing were they change the lead character to Que Min, a strong girl who falls for the pretty boy Jung Wo, they seems to almost forget about the original main character who was Tae Yeon, I think that from the second book its almost as if there is a completely new story with a new lead character, the serie is good though but it should have been done as two seperate series instead of confusing the readers with the switch of main character,
but i still think that the story is good and worth reading.read more
