i just had to say something about this story! i loved the chemistry the two characters had; it's like, even if they didn't want to be together, something held them. it was a really... smooth story, with smooth characters. that's the word that comes to mind when i think of it. it was incredibly easy to read, with minimal pointless drama. it was beautiful. ... it actually made me sob like i just watched titanic lol..... then i just cried because it was so wonderful. smile and the art - oh my! the art was something else. it was very pretty. plus, it made the comic images just that more funny because you're not expecting them!

one of the better mangas i've read in a while smile

i also enjoyed the side stories... they had a very melancholy, haunting feel~

I personally enjoyed this manhwa. Even though, it is relatively short, the story manages to be mature, angsty, and romantic. Most of which is delivered subtly. The summary is not very accurate on the beginning, but don't let that stop you from reading this piece of work.
The artwork is lovely, not your typical run-of-the-mill style, but more artistic and I thought it went perfectly with the mood of the whole story.
The three one shots or side story's that come at the end of the manhwa are much lighter in comparison. They all have a sentimental feel to them, and are also enjoyable in their own right.
I would definitely recommend this for people who want to spend time reading a mature short manhwa.

That was SOOOOOO good.
Oh the main story was OK. Kind of short and the pacing was awesome, emotions all down and all. Though the ending wasn't solid. What really got me are the 3 short stories included. This author's good at making us think, 'cause none of those stories have a real solid ending. "Peggy" has me real curious. What in the world... D:
