Sung-Gi Jang is cursed with the persona of a complete pervert! To all his peers, he is a fiend who only hungers for women. Yet in reality, he just has terrible social skills, making him incapable of properly expressing his intentions and feelings to the women around him. On top of that, he seems to have the worst luck there can be.
This all turns around when Jae Hwang, a fellow student and good friend, witnesses Sung-Gi completely shattered and decides to help him out. What Sung does not know is that Hwang is actually a master in attracting the opposite sex—a pick-up artist!
From square one, Sung-Gi builds up his conversation and interaction skills with women through several trials and tribulations. He soon learns how much depth and finesse there is in properly conveying intimate emotions to others. As he learns about the subconscious signals sent out by people, Sung-Gi finds himself paying more and more attention to a particular girl in his class, and he puts to use the skill that he was lacking before: The Skill of Lure.
Skill of lure was one of the first manga I've started reading, over an year ago, and boy, I loved it. And still do.
I finished the manga a few months ago, but when I saw it again in a website, I just had to write a review to show my love for it.
Simple, though, extremely hilarious. Seriously, I've never laughed so much reading a manga like I did with this one.
It's about a guy that often ends up in situations that cause misunderstandings and make women think of him as a perv. Cliché right? Well, yeah, but it's still better than those harem perv
clichés, because this one is well done and believable.
Later on, a friend of his starts giving him lessons to get a woman. How to handle'em, smooth talk and shit like that, I tried to learn too, but if I did, I wouldn't be here writing this crap, would I?
The MC, then, starts using these lessons to stop embarrassing himself and get this beautiful girl named Sena. If you want more, hell, read the manga.
I fucking love the art on this manhwa, it's gorgeous and funny when it has to be. The expressions are priceless, funny and extremely detailed like no other.
You just have to love Sunbae.
All characters are charismatic and just great. Lol. Just don't expect some psychological perspective or some deep shit like that, Skill of Lure is a romantic comedy and it knows what it is and does it well.
The 3 main characters are all likable, and the ones that are annoying, do a good job at it.
No heavy content with psychological analysis and dark surprising twists in the story. It's simple and fun.
If you want to feel happy and have a good laugh, look no further, Skill of Lure is THE manga for that.
Skill of Lure is a great example of cliché done right. It uses an overused concept and makes the best of it. The best of the best.
So now I've said it all and said it again, and what are you doing here? Do yourself a favor and read Skill of Lure this instant.
Smooth story, every chapter is exciting, I don't even think there is any filler. I don't know how realistic the "lessons" are, but from my limited experience they seem actually useful.
Amazing art. The character expressions are outstanding, even if a bit over-the-top. ("manga" literally means "exaggerated drawing", isn't it?)
The characters are well drawn, well written. The main characters developed naturally but some sub characters are ... somewhat forgotten. This manhwa could go on for at least 30 more chapters if the author expanded on the other characters beside the main couple. They have their own story but sadly was never touched.
My enjoyment would be
10/10 if there were more "ecchi" scenes between the main couple, but otherwise I enjoyed this.
Totally worth reading no matter who you are, it's a short and sweet love story at its core.
Definitely well-written. Its shortness makes it a hidden pearl.
Quite good. Very colorful.
There are some annoying antagonists like you'd see in many manhwas (just for drama-plot reasons), but the rest is all good.
Hwang, Jae Sunbae is totally hilarious, and definitely one of the best characters.
An, Sae-Na is a Mary Sue. Nothing relevant to say about her. Probably, not worth of the MC's effort.
The MC has a deep changing throughout the whole story, which is good.
It's very funny, and totally enjoyable.
It's definitely worth reading, and also teaches you many things as well.
When we read the synopsis and get to the "Pick-up artist" part we get an immediate association to a smutfest just like in Sweet Guy, Brawling Go, and Love Parameter to name a few.
With that mindset on, try and read Skill of lure and you will most definitely be caught off-guard. The manga begins to take shape around the 5th or 6th chapter and everything starts from there.
Personally, if you don't like the art then you will have a hard time appreciating this piece of work as for me that is the selling point for this entire manhwa. The use of the vwacky faces
coupled by the solid lines makes it very hard to not take this manhwa seriously. But that it why it is so good as it sneakily tries to get its way from laughing our mouths out all the way to crumpling our hearts.
The pacing is very much incredible as you cannot feel a single chapter being a "filler arc". I just hoped that they gave a little more backstory for the other characters such as Big Titty Girl Yura, Lee Ruri, and the cousin girl since it felt like they were thrown under the bus after the main antagonist showed up.
Overall, read it and feel the slice of life vibe coursing through your veins
