Jae is a Korean student who came to Europe to study art. Things aren't going her way, but she's determined to make it. One night, her friend Melissa brings a drunk guy to her apartment and asks if he can stay there for the night. Jae doesn't like it, but agrees. That night she has a dream that the drunk guy drinks her blood...which, of course, turns out NOT to be a dream.

Jae is surprisingly unafraid of the vampire, Michael, and starts to paint his portrait. The two strike an unusual deal: if Jae allows the vampire to feed on her, he will pose for her. His beauty and alluring preternatural energy could be exactly what Jae needs to finally succeed as a painter.

First of all, I should say how intriguing Model is, as you are first starting to read it. At a certain con (coughOHAYOCONcough) my mom bought me the first 3 volumes, just to try it out. We had to go back the next day to get the last 4 volumes, b/c I had already finished the first 3 and still wanted more.

The story in itself is very unique. I have never read such an interesting vampire story, and with such a quirky twist here and there. The ending was a bit rushed, if there isn't a better word for it, but otherwise it left you read more

The synopsis for this manga drew me in and the artwork was both different and beautiful.

However at times I found the story hard to follow, sometimes I wasn't sure if I was reading current events or past. The artwork and colouring also made it hard to see who was talking and at times I would miss speech bubbles due to them being on a dark background.

The plot, to me, changed priorities; somewhere along the line it became less about their contract and more about the mysteries surrounding the mansion. That storyline was interesting, don't get me wrong, but that wasn't what drew me in, to read more

The first thing catching my eyes was the art. It is unique and is unlike anything I have ever seen, although it reminded me ever so slightly about the art by Kang-Won Kim (I.N.V.U) and Tomu Oomi (Midnight secretary). All the characters have feminine faces and masculine bodies, which can be very confusing when figuring out their genders. It took me around an hour to get used to the art. Honestly, first I thought it was quite horrible, but as time passed I saw it as beautiful in its own unique way. That it is a Korean manga (manhwa) does most likely have something to read more

Yea, well model is pretty awesome. I could say i enjoyed it. But, it was very hard to read some pages were right to left and some were left to right. i probably had read some wrong possibly, but who knows! though it was hard to read i believe that was the most gothic horrible yet enjoyable manga ever.
