Oh gosh, I can't believe this manhwa hasn't been reviewed yet. Well, I guess it's an honor for me to be the first one then.
Forget About Love, or Lover Discovery, starts out with a unique story frame. This story is about a girl who got into an accident and went into a coma, and when she wakes up a month later, she has no memories of her past self. Naturally, she wants to know who she is. So she embarks on the task of discovering her memories. But she finds that all the people she meets [who clearly have met
her before] all have some grudges against her? Apparently, the original Se-Lim Lee was a famed blackmailer who has in the past tore up a forbidden love between teacher and her student, has a boy who will follow her orders because of she knew his weakness, and basically picked on any innocent person because that was her hobby.
With that said, I'm sure I can leave the imagination to you. Picture yourself in the same situation. You wake up from a long slumber, and you find out everyone hates you because of something you did that you can't even remember. Because of this set up, you can expect many funny moments of Se-Lim Lee discovering her past. If you enjoy funny stories, this is one for you.
As of now, I have only read 13 chapters, but in that short amount of chapters, I have come to like this manwha quite a lot. I can't find any faults in it. My only request would be that the chapters would comes out faster! D:
Really, I would grade this a 9.5 or even a 10, but I think I should wait for a few more chapters before I give this manwha the benefit of doubt. I couldn't ask for anything more here, but 10 = masterpiece, and the story's not quite there. I want to see what it develops into.
The art is fairly decent. It's not so unsightly that it might make you not want to read it, but it isn't something that you'd go "omg this drawing is so cute; I'm gonna print it out and put it on my binder". The manwhaka does a decent job at drawing all of the characters, but I do wish that a little more effort could have been put in for Se-Lim's girl friends. The boys are well drawn, but there is nothing spectacular there. One thing I might point out is hair. Somewhere in those first 13 chapters, there is a scene of a woman laying down, and I have to take note that her hair splayed out on the ground was really well drawn.
There's nothing wrong with the characters, and I do like how they portrayed Se-Lim's past self and how sharply it contrasts to Se-Lim's current personality. And
