"I'm pretty sure that the downfall of humans can be completely attributed to their curiosity", such is Ewon Jung's philosophy. Because of his curiosity and his "affectionate nature", Ewon somehow finds himself, after cheating one time too many on Jiho, dumped and threatened into working as a caretaker for Jiho's new boyfriend, Mookyul... who just so happens to be a Mafia Boss.
And it is just the beginning of Ewon's troubles.
Between Jiho, who still burns at Ewon's infidelity, and Mookyul, gang-leader with movie star good looks who starts to take a keen interest in him, Ewon slowly gets entangled in a net more intricate than that of the dangerous underworld, how will he survive it?

In volume 2, the whole Hugo Boss' reference was disturbing.
First, a note on the translators/editors or whoever wrote it: did you genuinely feel the need to explain what the SS was? If any reader out there didn't know what SS stood for before reading this, than he or she is too freaking young to be reading yaoi in the first place. I'm not hating or anything; just pointing out something that seriously annoyed me.
Second of all, although as a Western myself I find usually refreshing when West-related references show up in manga, provided they are from the original work, what on Earth ever possessed this author to create such a dialogue that goes: "Hugo Boss understood men -- I agree! He even dressed the Nazis"? In this particular context I don't care for the brand or the man himself, but for the way one puts meaningless dialogue into perspective.
By this stage I was already squinting as hard and narrowly as one possibly could. But the WORST part came with that "glamorous", flowery shot of what's his name WEARING one of the aforementioned uniforms. And oh my, "what a nosebleed", said the others. Even within the bloody universe of the manga this is bizarre, seeing as they are all pretty much out and proud, and we all know what neonazis today do to gay people, especially gay men.
Why am I ranting on this? Because it is too early in the manga and I'm fearing people may forget. Plus, it was seriously disturbing and it nearly put me off reading the whole thing through. Because I hate giving up, though, I did read it until the last drop, only to find (with some satisfaction, I'm afraid) that it was just flat.
Please report to brid's review on this one for the most accurate intake on this manga.
Still my favourite Yaoi manga of all time!
Ever since I saw the cover to the Yaoi manhwa I was completely hooked. Both character's are absolutely gorgeous, and Mookyul never fails to make my heart beat in every scene. Definitely one of the sexiest seme's I've ever come across, and the whole storyline/art is completely beautiful ^^
One of my top three favorite manga!!
I'm surprised I didn't write a review for this manga! I love this manga inside out, from start to finish, from the characters to scenery. This was one of the first Korean manga (or manhwa in this case) that I have read. The characters are fantastic and the development they make moved me. The relationship between Ewon and Mookhyul was well played and I every twist and turn made my heartache. I RE-READ THIS MANHWA ALL THE TIME, I CAN'T GET ENOUGH!. I definitely recommend this to everyone.
What an incredible manhwa!!!!! Actually I've read this a long time ago but didn't had the time to give my reviews upon this but right now, I just re-read it and I just can't shake the urge to shout it to everyone that this is an awesome manhwa, whether you're a yaoi or shounen-ai lover, you just gotta read this!!!!
I love the plot, I love the characters, I love the art, I love the ending and I love the DJs. What else can I say?! I've read a lot of yakuza-related stories and some sucked while some managed to hang on but this one is so different. It's just very different in the sense of how the plot goes and how the flow of story flows!
Not to mention that I really like Ewon. Although he was a badass for thinking that "trying" to sleep with another person to see if it works out other than his own bf (whom I feel sorry for). However, I think the relationship between Mookyul and that weird old man is just...weird. I never like young guys with old man (no offence here) OR young girls with old man. It just seems weird you know. That one feeling.
Anyway, I don't wanna give anymore spoilers, so my thought is, READ THIS. No matter what other people say about it, you read it, THEN give your opinion about it. If you hate it, found out that it wasn't as great as what other people have described, then it's okay! Everyone have different opinions. But try reading it first before following what other people say! :>
This is probably one of the only mangas I can re-read over and over again without ever getting bored of it, the more I read, the more I love.
Fantastic art, and plot. I loved all of the characters, Ewon is a perfect uke character, and I love the relationship him and the boss have.
Ahh what a breath of fresh air, I just love it!
It's Totally Captivating. <3
I have read this manwha two times. The first time I read it I was really annoyed near the ending because things were getting too dramatic for my taste and it felt like a a chore to read but I decided to give it another chance and I just couldn't put it down until the very end and this time, I'm not sure why, but the ending didn't bother me all. To put it simply: This. Manwha. Is. Amazing. Ewon is so lucky to have someone as hot, rich and devoted as Mookyul. This guy is willing to give up everything for him. I love Ewon by the way even though he can be a total ass sometimes. He's not the usual weak helpless uke that I see a lot in yaoi stories. >.< this is definitely one my favorite manwhas and I will never forget it HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!~
I love this manga. I usually hate manga or manwha's where the seme bullies the uke but I really like this one It's my new favourite manwha Even if you aren't a yaoi fangirl like me it can do for everyone I hate the old man though I don't agree with you guys.the story never dropped for me and it continued to be awesome If you want you judge that harshly thinkif you can create a manwha this good and have art as good at this and story and plot You shouldn't criticize

i absolutely love this manhwa, its one of my all time favorites!!! despite my biased opinion (and obsession) though it really is a good story with an actual plot and characterization. if you haven't checked it out yet i must insist that you stop what you are doing right now and go do so! you won't regret it! i am sooo glad i decided to read the dj years ago. after reading it, which gave me so little of the actual plot, i went to find the original and boy did i get a nice surprise. and there are a few things that irk me but yeah, every story has its quirks. despite the cliches and more weaker elements of it, totally captivated is still really good. i love the story not only because it was unique and different from the mainstream yaoi, but also because of the characters itself that were created. so awesome X)

Read it for the smut! ^^ Korean mafia is a great setting, the two main characters are yummy, just enjoy the show!
Some plot points were a tad too full of cliché drama (like the whole 'went to the same school as children=>unresolved drama' story) And toward the end, the whole situation with the old guy
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
sleeping with Mookyul
was, imo, extremely unpleasant and disgusting.
But if you put that aside, the story isn't bad, and more importantly the smut is HOT ! <3

before, i don't read boy's love manga coz i just thought it was plain weird and then i stumbled upon this.. then i became a rabid yaoi fangirl! hahaha..i guess the complaints about manhwa were valid but what really hooked me in was the humor.. the smuttiness in the story was not overt to the point that it was.. i don't know.. disgusting perhaps? but rather.. it was erotic.. haha.. anyways.. thumbs up!
