Description
"People become unhappy because they only think about the past and the future... not the present.."
So-Na, unable to remember a painful event in her past, is living only for her mother's nursery, "The Snowdrop". When she meets Hae-Gi, the intentionally isolated and beautiful model, they instantly click and fall in love. However, a dark secret that connects them, threatens to tear them apart. Like a modern-day Romeo and Juliet, Snowdrop is about two star-crossed teens who fall madly in love.

Also included in this manga is a short story called 'What Is Fate...?' in volume five.

Yu He-Min has traveled back in time and is on a mission: to stop her parents from marrying!

Mind blowing series, i can't explain in mere words... Its just way too much...

Hello
What do i say about this series?? I don't know when was the last time i was so jacked up about some thing, It was a great to read something so intense, it was full of comedy, tragedy, romance, but i felt like it was rather slow in the middle. Romance part was ok from both. But i feel like they missed something to mention
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
If so-na's mother and hae-gi's mother were childhood best friends, why the oldest son would do such a thing to so-na? What was the real reason for such act? Also it feels weird, is this true love fades away with time? so-na and hae-gi was apart for 2 years and still they love each other so much!!! It can only mean that they truly loved each other with all their heart, so their couldn't just forget about each other and move forward with their life.
Anyway it was a tremendous story, I just remember the last time i was so jacked up something, it was after watching clannad ever after, but this one completely blew my mind, its was even better. It was fun reading it since the beginning and soon i got myself deep into the story that i couldn't think about anything else. There is so much drama in the story but i think its worth reading all the things in the page and sticking with it till the end. Specially i liked
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the ending, normally we get to see couple got married and that would be the last page and THE END, here we got to see, how hwi-rim ended up with a high school girl, Also some after life of our main characters after their marriage and honeymoon. I felt bad so much that she couldn't bear any child, But in the end it was all Happy. Completely satisfied with the ending....
Well the art was OK, it was ok enough that i read the whole thing till the end of volume 12 and read every line in the page. For me this is a masterpiece.

That's a lot of drama...

That book has a lot of drama... To much at times, but i liked it anyway. The first thing I liked about it is the the fact, the couple actually acts like a couple. In most manga, the couple shows no affection whatsoever for each other and it's just as rare to see couples telling each other "I Love You!", but not the case here. They show affection like real couples with plenty of hugging, holding, touching and they use the "L" word almost every other page. This kind of stuff is common in American romance novel, but it's pretty rare in a shoujo book. Regardless, this is a romance comic that actually has plenty of romance.

SO-Na is a strong and independent woman unlike many shoujo leads. She's certainly not weak nor does she spend a lot of time sulking because she doubts the lead males feeling for her. She knew she was loved. Yeah, she was spoiled and a snob at 1st, but her character grew. She didn't allow herself to get bounced around like a pinball.

Another thing that was different about this series is that it didn't have a rushed ending where everything just fell together in the last chapter . Things were really brought to a conclusion right before the final volume. The final volume tied up just a few slightly loose ends and showed what was going on with everyone. So therefore we had a whole volume of closure and to see how things turn out. I think all series should end like this. It's hard when you invest so much time in getting to know a group of characters and it just abruptly ends.

There were times i had to walk away from this because the drama was a little much. But i have to say that this has had the most satisfying ending ever. I finished the series feeling really good. That rarely happens to me when i read this stuff. I admit that I read the scanlations, however,I turned around and ordered a few of the volumes just to keep as a memento.

I almost give this a 10, but the drama did get to be a little much, so i give it a nine and that's a high score for me.

... and I loved it! Just close your mind to the crazy plot and the psychotic violence/mindgames the parents' use to keep their children apart... seriously, what kind of parents would put their pride, revenge and hatred above the happiness of their children? Sometimes I wished the main couple just flicked them the proverbial finger and left the country.

Its all highly implausible and oh yeah you get a little shounen-ai (not that explicit) subplot thrown in to up the angst.

I disagree with others' comments about So-Na being the weaker one to walk out on their relationship on multiple occasions. This girl had to deal with post traumatic stress, depression, and her mother's death after kidnapping and implied sexual assault. I'm surprised she's not even more screwed up than she already is. I completely understood her reasons; fear that their relationship would fail and guilt over abandoning their families. Hae-Gi is your typical stoic romantic hero who's good at absolutely everything, dahling... smart, gorgeous, athletic and improbably faithful. Isn't that what we all want? smile

it started out really good until they got in the accident and So-Na had to save Hae-Gi by braking up... but after that it just got lame..

i also Hate So-Na for using Hwi-Rim to go to LA to meet Hae-Gi even after saying that she would only seem Hae-Gi from afar and would leave but Hwi-Rim was at fault for getting So-Na to close to Hae-Gi but then how she left Hwi-Rim i hated her for that.

Plus after there family let them be together all the soon So-Na changed i guess So-Na's the type that only knows how to treasure love when everyone is out to brake them up but once they are free to do anything and love each other her love wasn't so strong looking and didn't seem like there ever was a time where she struggled to fight for it.

another reason I hated So-Na was how she always so selfish it really annoyed me and poor Hae-Gi how much he loved her and wanted to marry her but So-Na only did things when she wanted something like the marriage she wanted to have kids and when she couldn't she would get depressed and cause Hae-Gi worry over her. But the last page was weird the ending how she couldn't have but the next pages showed a baby So-Na and Hae-Gi were holding.

wat a ending it was long and dragging not that grate. though i was happy for Hwi-Rim he found someone at the end.

I don't find this manwha so unrealistic and stupid like other people post... well It's a story about forbidden love so it has a lot of extreme situarions and drama, the characters are people of rich families ,mafia and people with old enmities looking for revenge... but they are able to forgive all when they finally notice that because of this old issues ,they are now losing their most important persons... I don't find it that crazy.
About the last volume.... well. I like it because , although It's no necesary in the story, It shows that even happy ending couples have to go on living and find a lot of problems afterwards... I don't think she is histerical, She is only a woman coping with her life problems. In life one person find problems and insecurities, feels sad angry happy fustrated... the stories in reality doesn't end witha kiss.

At first I was like WOW this is pretty intense and the drama never dropped...and i mean NEVER!! Soon it just became really depressing and their love became idiotic because

Spoiler (highlight to view)
who the hell will still go after someone after getting STABBED ??? Is that not enough physical rejection for you ??? Also the main girl So-Na was just so damn self-centered I wanted to punch her. Her husband and her guy friends are unbelievably nice.... Like who the hell would want to stay with a basket case and a temperamental psycho at that. And for some reason ALL the men ends up falling for her at one point or another?


BUT OVERALL I must say I liked it but honestly the last volume, number 12, totally killed it for me. It felt so long drawn out and then they end it with a nice pretty bow....sorry it just didn't cut it for me : \

The beginning was not too bad but by the middle, it blew up into some lengthy saga that didn't have enough credibility. Also, while some of the individual scenes were indeed enjoyable, the rest of the plot really suffered as it became really repetitive.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Just how many kidnapping/runaway scenes do you need to have and the characters didn't even learn at all. Yeah, we'll walk into trouble's/death's door even though we could've run away to some other country and used various means to deal with the situations.

And this didn't even make sense for a manga without any sci-fi or supernatural aspect: Yeah, we'll go into a coma together and start holding each other's hands as we wake up. And oh yes, our parents will just forgive everything even though the author has stubbornly pushed things into a really different direction.

Also, uhm... after throwing together Ko-mo and Ha-da together, there wasn't even much about them in the last volume. <--- what a waste of time, considering quite a bit of the subplot revolved around them


And btw, what "slice of life"? This one felt more like another badly written action script. Seriously recommended only if you're looking for something to skim through.

It started off slowly but as soon as the angst kicked in, I was had to read all of it. The way the story unfolded was good, though it wasn't very convincing how they fell in love. The shounen-ai relationship between Ha-da and Ko-mo was more interesting and believable than So-na and Hae-gi. As the story progressed however, their love seemed more realistic.

The art is... okay. It threw me off at first, so I almost didn't want to read it.
It's not amazing, and you don't really fall head-over-heels with the male protagonist, but a good story nonetheless.
