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.
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.
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.
This was the only manga that i was able to re read many times and still enjoy it the same. If you haven't read it yet, I highly suggest you to read it!
The story is pretty simple. It's about a guy named Sung-Gi Jang, who often has incidents where he is mistaken for being a pervert. Sung-Gi goes to a school that specializes in university entrance. There he has a friend named Jae Sunbae. Jae Sunbae helps Sung-Gi to learn the skill of seduction or you could call it skill of lure. That is pretty much, Jae Sunbae gives some lessons to Sung-Gi and the
story unfolds. I don't want to say anything more in case you haven't read the manga yet.
The art was just perfect for me. Just the style i like, it was colorful, the scenes gave the feeling the author wanted to give.
Now for the characters, our protagonist Sung-Gi starts of a little bit weak, but steadily he becomes more cool.
Jae Sunbae or Kaiser Hwang is the MVP of this series. It is almost impossible not to like the guy. He starts off dynamically and continues to do so until the end of the series. Another plus for this guy is that the scenes where he gives his lessons he is drawn so well and the lines he has are also awesome, so yeah he is pretty epic.
Personally enjoyed this series to the fullest. I've read this series many times as i said in the introduction and still enjoy it the same every time i read it. I can even say that every time i re read it i enjoy it even more!
This series is short but the story, the portrayed feelings, the character development is delivered so well, it is almost a given you will enjoy it! I highly recommend this series, it's short and it if you have some free time on your hands give it a go!
