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.
Moon Hye Rin is a young piano prodigy whose parents do not let her do anything but music. She practices all day, is homeschooled, does not socialize and has to wear gloves to protect her hands.
When she meets an independent musician JooWon by chance when on tour, she is transformed by the experience of someone who
has freedom and loves his music with his whole heart and plays because he wants to play and what and where he wants to play not because he is told to. The story follows their decision to love despite tragedy.
This story will make you cry.
I read this as a webtoon and in that way there is music on the daum site which plays along with it for my fellow music lovers out there.
Now that it is finished it is being published as a paperback AND being made into a drama for you K drama fans.
This is more of a seinen or a josei - ( although it's a manhwa and those tags don't quite fit but I would not categorize this as a shounen at all ) They are young adults. The art, the music and the story are all so good. It is a tragedy so parts of this story are rough emotionally.
Because this story does not deviate from a strong course I would consider this a masterpiece a 10 - Bravo - to the maestro writer / artist for making a manhwa that reads like a piece of music that makes you cry. I absolutely loved this.
