Unbalance x 2

A young man finds and returns a lost wallet and cell phone to a beautiful young lady, thus begins the destined relationship between two strangers. Sound typical? Well then, how about making the young lady the young man's future homeroom teacher, and give them both a twisted sense of right and wrong. And just for kicks, let's have the young man help himself to a self proclaimed reward from the lost wallet before returning it… but of course, this scenario wouldn't be complete unless the young lady was very unforgiving when it came to teaching one of her students a lesson on morals.

Seems like there are some big conflicts of opinions here, but I really can only recommend this manga. The relationship between the hero and heroine seems to progress very slow, but it's more the work of society standards in korea. I really like the hero, he's not the usual clumsy "I rush into some pervy situations and can't get my eyes off her boobs" - character, no, he is very decisive, good at expressing himself, kinda sharp and good at sports. his good points are so overwelming for his teacher that she sees herself only as a vulnerable victim to him, so she wants to protect herself, because she can't trust him. But to their social circumstances, she is far superior and uses this status to protect herself. Now can you understand the title?

It's a very good story about a young man trying to capture the heart of the woman he loves, with a good plot, nice sidecharacters but who are important for the storyprogress. There are no really sidestorys, and so the story is very suspenseful although the pace of the progress of hero and heroine seems to be very slow (in fact I really don't think so, it seems pretty realistic).

I really can't wait for the next volume wink .

I've read some opinions here and there in this comment section. It was either shot down or rated very high. But in the end it seems that even those who disliked the way this manhwa is, had very strong reactions to it. And that could also meany that this work really got to the reader.

I myself was hooked after a while. Even though it was difficult read at first (didn't read that many manhwa before). It's true that it's sometimes overly dramatic, but that's the thing with manhwa and korean works. They specialize in drama and either you like that or not. But at leasts it's GOOD drama and focus' on points some manga would just overlook and do go into depth. It was funny at first, but not really a little bit later. Go read some japanese lovecom if you want only something to laugh and a bit (or more) of romance. Faeries Landing was like that at first too, but like with Unbalance at the later points it made you go "Woah...heavy".

As for me I like this drama stuff and the "romance". It's not overly cliché or with an unrealistic pace. I mean there are only about 75 chapters out and there was more plot and (character) developement than in your typical harem love-come. It's a different style, so if you think it's too slow, think again. At least something happens. (even though comparing it to manga'S as To-Love-Ru is a bad move, it had more developement in one volume than the whole to-love-ru series).

Okay so the main plot with the student teacher relationship isn't moving that fast for some people... hey at least they give as some decent reasons for that. And if you don't like the twist and drama don't read Manhwa (especially by Im Dal Young).

Thus I give it a 9/10 rating. The rating was also influenced by the AWESOME Art of Lee Soo Hyun. I absolutely can't understand how anyone *glances to cowslaves* can not like the art. Soo Hyun does some really good art (if you got decent HQ scanlation you can see it all the better) and some japanese artists/mangaka just plain suck in comparison (even if their story is good/interesting).

When I started reading this I was like:"Why the hell am I reading this, I`m sure its going to be a stupid and boring manhwa"(that was mainly the opinion I had about manhwas after reading other manhwas) but once you start reading this you really get absorbed by the story and the characters...I totally suggest it!

... But it turns out this is probably the most I-want-to-hit-my-head-repeatedly-on-the-wall romance series I've read since Good Ending. That that I 1) read this after Emma and 2) read all ten volumes in one sitting only amplified its flaws. And no, I'm not merely referring to the ending.

For starters, the rate of plot development isn't really fast and yet the exposition seems rushed, as if some panels are omitted. The narrative, therefore, does not flow smoothly at times. Of the other works of the Lim and Lee pair I've only ever read Koimoku and IIRC that has the same problem, but then again Koimoku was also much shorter and much more straightforward.

And then you have the characters. For a - supposedly - seinen series, the characters are very immature, impulsive, and downright stupid. It is nice that Jin-Ho isn't your typical wimpy harem main character, but boy he can be such a stupid jerk. I also find it annoying that characters - females included - have to be portrayed as hot-blooded from time to time; this is supposed to be a romance, not a freaking shounen action series!

Finally you have the numerous MacGuffins. It's one thing to change plans midway; it's an entirely different story to abandon plot threads without any proper transition. Here are some glaring ones:

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
- Yang Hee-Chul, his gang, and the fact that he's supposed to be indebted/attracted to Ji-Soo? All forgotten.
- Hee-Chul's brother, Lee Hee-Won, the school chairman? Forgotten.
- Young-Gi's supposed attraction to Ji-Soo? Forgotten.
- The big incident Jin-Ho's father bailed him out of in middle school? Forgotten.
- Heck, Jin-Ho's father? Only relevant for the musical tickets.
- The fact that the movie circle is, well, a movie circle? Irrelevant.
- Hae-Young's distrust of men caused by her father's abandonment as introduced in the first pages? Forgotten and irrelevant.
- Heck, Hae-Young's father? Only a plot device to introduce Carrie.

In summary, Unbalance x Unbalance is a shining example of annoying characters in a poorly-written and poorly-executed story. There are tons of better series out there. I already mentioned Emma, which is also about a couple pursuing romance despite societal norms, and if you want something about student-teacher relationships and don't mind reading hentai Fuuga is a good example of an artist that can deliver in just one volume what Lim and Lee struggled with in ten.

This title is made of awesome. It's full of suspenseful drama that left me unable to put it down. With realistic characters, well thought-out dialog, an engaging story and excellent artwork, every aspect of this series is a clear win. Definitely perfection within it's genre.

I was at first hesitant to start reading this mainly becuase its a manwha (and I hate reading comics from left to right) but when I finally finished the first chapter... I was hooked. This story took me by extreme suprise, there was so much drama that I was heart thumping. It was an extremely good read and I am so glad that I actually decided to try it out. The story is amazing I just really wish it didn't go on hiatus... I wanna finish it so badly.

This manga is pretty much bound to the culture.
As an example, the male lead is 19 which is under-aged
in South-Korea and thus his personality is like of a child's.
The characters are all somewhat dumb or simple minded,
just like kids. Creator has no idea what human psychology is.
Otherwise this is suitable stuff to read.

This manwha really kept me up at night. From the very first chapter to near the end, I blazed through all of them just to see how our "hero" ends up.

I would say the closest thing I've experienced to this storyline would be the korean and asian drama's my friends would chat about while I was still in school. Well no surprise there to be honest, it was written by a Korean person after all.
ANYWAY.. in this one, we finally see a protagonist that isn't a pushover, a weakling (physically), or a nice guy all the damn time. I mean, he does have his shortfalls occasionally, but that's who we are as humans.

This story actually shows us the pain some of the people in the world experience in their relationships with others. Sometimes you can't be happy with all the relationships in your life, to make one better, sometimes you have to make another one worse. That's just how I feel.

Finally the art.. really good. I could do with more realistic proportions on women to be honest. But hey, it's in ecchi comic for a reason. xD

seriously one of the best manga's i have ever came across.
the male lead isnt some skank who goes around moping about his feelings to himself for 10 volumes, instead he is a complete badass who speaks his mind. Also for the first time ever in a manga, the male lead doesnt fall for female traps, and get blindly seduced by chicks with ulterior motives.

seriously, read it, stop reading my comment, and start reading this manga
