What was with that shitty ending?! It was going well, so unique and than *BAM* the unsatisfying ending! I gave it a six because the story had potential, but the ending wrecked it.

So many questions are raised by this story.

One scene I found particularly interesting was
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
when Daoun remembered at the end of the series when she first met Ryu Min in the bathroom


This was really a powerful scene! At that moment, I felt like the story came full circle. Problem is, this only raised more questions.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Did Ryu Min really target Daoun because of her brother? Or was it because she looked like the teacher who died? Or was it because he felt something for her in that first moment they met? Or is it a combination of all these?


I didn't realize how important this scene was until I read it a second time. After realizing that, the ending made a greater impact on me.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
@blogai: the reason why she loves him is simple. The moment he gave her a piggyback ride, she was reminded of her first love (Youngmin). I think the real question here is does she have a fetish about piggyback rides LOL. Well, anyway, I think it's more of an attraction issue. There's obviously great chemistry going on between the two. It's epic and undeniable, which we see in the last volume when she finally kisses him. This also kind of explains why she doesn't like HyunWoo...there's just no attraction on her part (hmm...I guess she has a thing for bad boys?).


I don't know if I really like the ending per say, but it was definitely very...memorable. There's so really not enough background story to make a full judgment on RyuMin. We get so little glimpses of scenes just about him that there's not much the audience CAN learn about him. From the storytelling, we're led to believe that the RyuMin's behavior is defined by his affair with the heroine's brother, but the ending suggests otherwise. Or...maybe I'm just reading too much into it.

I never wanted to read this manhwa because the weird/low rating made me suspect it's no good.

Well.

That was "never". Forget that, I picked it up today. Just wanted to skimm through it, seeing if it's any good.....
But still, that was "just" skimming. And then, at some point I started to read and pay attention. I started to enjoy it. It was weird, lovely and beautiful.
The main male chara is an asshole. Possibly also a playboy. The female lead was rash, but likeable. Oh, and I want to include naiv and slightly idiotic as well.
The art was - what nearly everybody here tells you - gorgeous and absolutely lovely. I might check out more of her works, also because her story telling is interesting.
I mean - you THOUGHT it would be like any OTHER shoujo. It was partly like the typical shoujos - won't tell what parts or else I might spoiler - but the ending and the past of the male lead are dfiferent. I really liked the past part. It was so different of the stuff I read before, even though it doesn't mean it was even a bit more realistic.
What I really appreciated was the ending. It was nice and different. And actually, this is a warning :
If you can't handle the main chara being an asshole, keep away. And I mean it like that. He's not just a "bad guy", he's much more than that.
If you don't like it when the female characters get pushed around, tricked or else, get out of here. This isn't a series for you, definetly not.
And, one last bit: If you want a happy light read without an open end, don't expect one: It's very dark, and you also need to give this series another thought: Why did he do that, did he maybe lie there or why is she like that, ... it might help creating your own personal ending.


Well. That's it. I personally enjoyed this series, and maybe you will do so as well.

God, the ending is so damn frustrating. Otherwise, I loved it entirely.

The art is GORGEOUS. As always. No need to repeat my love for Lee Hyoen-Sook's art.

The storyline was, from my experience with Flowers of Evil, heart-achingly thrilling, in a sense. You KNOW what is going to happen, but you still wonder what in the world will the characters decide to do. I love how it goes by a slow, even pace to let the story progress into full maturity. Definitely, it's for an older audience, but as a thirteen year old, I quite enjoyed it. The ending was just so annoyingly unclear.

The characters are great, I liked Ha Young's character very much. She was impressively smart in certain occasions, and she dealt certain problems interestingly. The main character, Miss Jung, however, was a bit of a pest. She's one of those impulsive characters where you just want to yell out,"What the hell do you think you're doing?!" She's not that bad, I just wish she would have acted more mature and less like she's below her age. It's a nuisance. I certainly enjoyed the energetic "I'm alpha male" feel all three main male characters emanated. You could just feel the electric hatred between some of them at times.

Anyway, it's an enjoyable read, if you could get past the annoying ending.

It was absolutely perfect. Beautiful and entertaining. AND I have nothing to complain about. It was what it was. It all fit perfectly together, like a fantastic matching outfit. I may not have liked the shoes personally, but i can't deny that it matched the outfit too well, and nothing else could have taken its place... coughcoughtheendingcoughcough

Artwork and story are amazing, but more suitable for an older audience. Definitely josei, not shoujo.
The ending is too ambiguous and really ruins the feel of the story. Not only are the characters' relationships unclear, but many other questions that come up in the story are left unanswered. Min's relationship with his mother, the accident, his true feelings and intentions towards Miss Jung, and why he did what he did at the end... it all made for a very frustrating ending.

This manhwa was way too cryptic for me to understand.

In conclusion, it wasn't enjoyable. The whole story was left for the reader to interpret.

The main guy char's expression didn't change once, and his past was a huge ( ? ).Now that i think about it, his present (like the story with his parents) and his future (the sudden and nonsensical end) were left as a huge ( ? ) as well. No hint of what his thoughts were either.

The other characters were not as confusing, but still not that much better. The constant time jumps were frustrating..

In short, the story setting was good, the story telling ruined it all. I do admit the art was beautiful tho, and i think everything, even this manhwa, is worth a try.

I was a tad upset when I finished it because I love the her artwork, but her stories are usually heartbreaking, and this one is no exception. Despite the ambiguous ending, maybe it's proper considering
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Ms. Jung doesn't want the ending of love, and Ryu Min can be very dangerous when he's jealous. I still think there's potential that they will finally be together in the future. He just has to grow up first, be more mature. I'm still thinking as to what was he expecting from reporting her

This was a very good series!~ Although I'm pretty sure the ending would offend anyone who are senesitive on those topics but, I believe that ending was necessary. The title is SEDUCTION/FASCINATION is BETTER than (true) love, so if you're looking for a happy soul mates re-united thing, then this story isn't for you. If you, on the other hand, enjoy or don't mind psychological, twisted and ambiguous endings then this series is DEFINITELY for you! : D Side note: neither of the main characters love each other, they feel lust and desire to each other. Love isn't the only feeling that causes people to be attracted to one another, right?

The ending left me frustrated...
Spoiler (highlight to view)
I hate how Jung just said that she would wait for him forever, even though he reported her to her school - and LEFT her without telling her if he loved her or not. Somehow that makes Jung look so weak. From my point of view, it looks like Ryu is just out for revenge on Jung's younger brother. It irritates me how we don't get a clear answer, and are left to wonder, in a bad way!

Geez!
