Description
From Yen Press:

Yun-Ook Jang is a 24-year old freelance illustrator who rents out a room to help pay off her debts. Her tenant is a 17-year old drop out named Bum-Moo Lee who only has a part-time job. Before Yun-Ook knew how old Bum-Moo was, he seemed rather mysterious and cold to her, and the two argued all the time. Then one day, Bum-Moo asks her a most dangerous question: ”Do you mind if I like you?”

Although it has flaws I truly enjoyed this. Some may not like Yeon-ook as she can be snappy, sarcastic, bitey, unfriendly and moody, but her saving grace is she's shrewd and deadpan funny. I look forward to reading the rest of this series.

It's terribly interesting. The guy overshadows the girl in looks and is definitely a bishie. Although I would love to see this and read it online for free, it seems that it would be faster to actually buy it from Yen Press. This is a very lovely romance with gorgeous art and there was one scene that really captured my heart.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
The one in the bookshop where he asks her if it's okay if he starts to fall in love with her.
That small part was probably the most down to earth romantic scene ever.

i have to admit. my heart kept screaming out loud. although i've never been inlove, i've read tons of romance novels, stories and watch movies of that genre. or should i say i am a fan from the books and not by experience. And based on that experience, I AM LOVING THIS MANHWA.

I swear i can't and i won't ever forget about this manhwa. yeah!! c'mon! i wish some guy like Bum-Moo pass by... now i'm sensing series of daydreaming...uh-oh! this is bad! hopeless romantic that is!haha

if your concern was the age gap, that category sure did give me second thoughts but with THIS, i'm reconsidering. i feel like "so that is how age doesn't matter feels like.." oh gawd! i sure did have the butterflies just by reading.

oh and the ending, i read some of the comments, so i read it wary of a cliffhanger. i think cliffhanger won't suit it. i just felt like, reading and reading and oh? no more? more like a dead end? but don't be discouraged. it'll be regretful if you turn this down. HEH? sounds like a sales pitch..haha

even though i was planning to continue the rate-and-no-comment routine, i just can't help but recommend this! PLEASE READ! it's worth the experience.

I'm a bit upset. I can't say the story made much sense. It probably would've been better if the series was longer, but i kinda want to say it was kinda "dumb". I felt like it was kinda all over the place for no reason, and for such a short series, it should've stuck with one problem. It did have potential to be better, but alas it was too short. On a positive note, the artwork was very pretty.

Well, at first, I wasn't so sure about this one... I slowly came to like this story as I neared the ending, though =3

Okay—art. Beautiful but messy. I could tell the artist likes pretty things because all the characters were gorgeous, though I kept thinking their body structure sort of reminded me of a stick—long and thin. However, the backgrounds and settings were magnificent and I liked the artist's sense of style. Very fashionable. Also, the main character in this story resembles the main character of Paradise Kiss...

Anyway, the storyline was slow-paced but realistic. I really liked the development of the story. The characters had distinguishable personalities that made me admire them each as an individual. There was not one character I disliked in this story ^_^ The way it was written though, felt a bit lacking in emotion. The whole time I read it, I didn't feel any outburst of emotion that I usually do when I read most romance manga/manhwa. Despite that, I loved the ending!

Overall, it's a recommended series, but not exactly a must-read.

i really did like it. but bum-moo's feelings
Spoiler (highlight to view)
towards his step sister, which seemed like more than sibling love to me..
seemed to come out more than towards yun-ook. but they DID come out in really subtle ways. maybe if it was longer they would have showed in greater quantities.

i liked and disliked how slow it developed.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
i was annoyed they didn't even kiss.. i was waiting for it.. and bum-moo should've been more jealous lol!


i really, really loved the art. it was reallyyyy pretty <3. no doubts about that.

it was good. but short. no depth. light read really, da ending left with me with da "thats it" feeling. like it was rushed, nothing happen, no confessions nothing. too much left to readers imagination.

Generally, I prefer mangas to manhwas, but this one is probably one of my favorite stories in general. The romance in this nice and cute, sort of like a korean drama itself. I really hope to be able to see this one in print, but it's difficult to find.

That being said, I think this is a good read for anyone seeking a light-hearted simple story that's more than the average shoujo.

I really do like this story, it's a laid back tale that does dive into some cliches. I love the artwork, quite fashionable actually. The heroine isn't the typical shoujo heroine... So, so far so good.
