This deep psychological drama turn out to be shallow melodrama about bad parents and whiny children.

The Friendly Winter is perhaps the most melodramatic work out there. 87% of the chapters include at least one crying scene. The crying scenes aren't very short, they often take 3-5 pages of 'byyhyyy', 'mooooo-ooooom' and various sobbing sounds to stop. And usually they don't stop, some other character just starts to cry with the first crying person and then the chapter is over without anything being add to the story, to the characters nor the reading experience.

The main theme of the story is regret and letting go, except read more

Have you ever cried over a fictional work? Do you think you're beyond that sort of silly, weak reaction? Think you're a tough kid? Think again, because 'The Friendly Winter' is about to show you just how much of a vulnerable little girl you are on the inside.

What's amusing with webtoons is that they are fully-colored. It lets you get more immersed into its world than any average manga/manwha out there. Couple it with a good story, pacing and characters and you'll get something similar to this series: a great experience.

Upon reading its synopsis, I got the impression that this will be again a so-so story with a so predictable outcome. I didn't bother reading it until almost a year later. After finishing the first chapter, I regret not starting it sooner. It didn't pluck my heartstrings nor made me scream "kawaii/moe" inside my head.. but it did made me ask the read more

From some of the negative comments I see about this manhwa, it seems that people do not understand that it's a "melodrama". Tearful confessions, traumatic pasts, misunderstandings - these are all part and parcel of the genre. Either you enjoy this kind of stuff (I do) or you don't. From that perspective, "The Friendly Winter" is an excellent example of the genre and also what is commonly called a "pure romance", or a romantic plot that focuses more on feelings of love and affection and not particularly on sexual romance.

Interestingly enough, despite the two main leads having disabilities, the drama actually focuses on normal read more
