Diamond Dust is a powerful manhwa story that does not hesitate in portraying strong emotions and tragedy in the story of two young creative people - it's a story about how a chance meeting with someone can have such a powerful effect on your life that is changes it forever.

This series has changed my life. I recommend people to read this series because it gets you to reflect your past. The question this book is trying to tell you, "What does it mean to live"? Life is really strange filled with many unexpected events that will happen.

You will encounter a "Piano prodigy" who lived most of her life playing the piano, but not have "truly lived". Then you will see a musician who had the freedom to do whatever he wants BUT he encounters a mental obstacle that will change his life forever.... (Read what actually happened to him).

There are happy read more

I usually write a review when I feel that more people should know about the story that a I have read. I have had this feeling when I finished to read Diamond Dust.

-Recommended for: People looking for a deeply emotional, soul-searching story about two people supporting one another in the midst of crisis
-Not recommended for: Readers who want comedic moments, steamy romance, or a happy ending.

-Story (8/10): I picked up this manhwa as a filler story with rather mediocre expectations - "oh look, another story about a young, burnt out piano prodigy pushed to the limit by her parent's strict and unrealistic expectations". I have read a lot of different manga that follow that general recipe, but this story added several new and unexpected elements that allowed it to move far beyond that basic plotline. read more
