"The One" is manhwa that I stopped reading few years ago. I dropped it after few volumes thinking that story is kind of slow. Thanks God I came to my senses :)
I find this manhwa best point is it's story - even tho it lacks originallity. Story is very well based on real time hardships and life events. Combine that with little bit of shoujo aspects and you get the One. Towards the end the One is becoming more and more realistic and less and less shoujo-like.
I would give 10/10 points if there wasn't an ending. Ending is kind of rushed and even
tho it explains briefly all the actions of characters it's not what you would expect based on previous chapters.
Art is absolutley beautifull. You should wait few chapters for mangaka to reach his final design of characters, but after you've reached it than art is absolutley amazing. After all this is manhwa about fashion industry and art is very important for manhwa to be this good.
Characters are very well developed. Lele Cane is one of best heroines to follow. Why? Because from beggining of the story till the end she is developing. Or you could call that growing up, learning how to face with difficult situations. What I like about her the most is the fact that she doesn't turn back to her "old self". There are many characters in various manga pieces that are showing sign of development but characters suddenly turn back to what they were before... they remain same from beggining towards the end. Lele Cane is totally different than that - she grows from confused kid to a fullfledged persona. Eros and Agnus are also in rang with Lele Cane. But aside from main characters I am kind of dissapointed in supporting ones. There is Lele' s Aunt that's basically the same over entire story, Leo too.
10 it is, I will only say that I read entire manhwa in only few days. Brief humor, many wtf moments, and totally unpredictable in various aspects! :) But I wouldn't re-read it so fast, it's kind of read only once manhwa or try again in a few years
It's really great manhwa, fun, tense and beautifull. But ending is dissapointing, not because the way it ended but only because it was rushed. Rushed a lot.
