Description
From Esthétique:

Ding Jiayu dreams of being a photographer. Her idol is none other than Yung Jo. When Yung Jo's photography company holds an audition to find a new photographer, Jiayu decides to take a chance. The thing is, Yung Jo's company doesn't hire women, so Jiayu has no choice but to dress up as man and enter. Yung Jo takes great interest in Jiayu's talent and makes her his apprentice. It may seem like a dream to work with your idol, but for Jiayu, it's nothing of the sort. She takes a beating from Yung Jo everyday, and since all the crew members think she is a guy...

I finally understand when people say that mangas are different from manhwas because this was such a good example. Here we have a great story because there is no denying the plotline could not be better. The artwork is really good too....i mean talk about bishies but most importantly the characters are portrayed in such a way that you can understand, to a certain extend relate and like each and everyone of them including the bad guys. I love how their relationship develops and grows, i know sometimes is typical in shoujos but good none the less. I often critique when heroines act a bit too childish, like a klutz or cry very often, but in this case i was glad because it showed her growing as a person and when it happened it sort of seemed necessary....i also adored the ending, so sweet although am greedy so i wanted more but quite realistic.

But you see, at volume one, you immediately get dragged into the story without much preamble at all. Then there's this suckiness at continuity. Like, things just suddenly happen without any reason at all and without much introduction. All that's left is something like "this is what happened. you just have to accept it and read it." Yung Jo has too much mood swings that it doesn't even make sense. Jiayin is too idiotic at times (even though I really admire her for her passion), like she just has to do it just for the sake of making something happen.

The characters (old and new ones) just come and go as they please. The scenery/location just changes *poof* and you're left with this "what?" feeling.

So basically, the storytelling sucks, and the characters just get dragged around making stupid choices just to get it going.

When I started reading this, I had so-so expectations. When I read a few volumes, those expectations dropped a bit and I was just expecting a light, interesting read. After around 10 volumes, I couldn't take it anymore. As much as I'm interested in what's gonna happen, the manhua's not making it easy for me to read through it to satisfy said interest.

Summary: I don't recommend wasting your bandwidth, disk space, and time just to read this. Go find something else. Something better.

If you're planning on reading ingenuo because of the genderbender thing, don't. That thing only lasted for, what? one chapter? The plot was okay nonetheless. It started out as quite interesting. However, as the story progress, at some point, you'd want to stop reading because Yung Jo is the such a jerk! I mean seriously! But don't let that fool you. Everything's going to be fine at the end. Yung Jo undergoes a major character development wink The art was really bad (sorry!) but you'll get used to it.

This manhua probably won't be liked by everyone but as for me, i found it okay (not that great but worth reading). It leaves an impression after you finish reading it. So remember, if you're going to read this, no matter how bad the story gets, stick with it 'til the end! I promise it gets better biggrin

First I was hesitant to start reading this series, seeing the comments on it and all, but I did eventually and my reaction was like WOW! I mean seriously, the plot is awesome, you just can feel the mangaka knows his/her stuff. I even learned a few photography techniques from it XD !!!
The art isnít bad at all, and you can clearly see how its gets even better.
The characters are interesting and funny, but also have their woes. They're so, well, not boring! The balance is just great! And right now I am really in major suspense about what will happen next, I am in matter of fact so excited that I started reading it all over again!
I think itís a plot that'll keep surprising the reader. So I definitely recommend it to everyone!

Lovely Manga, i freaking adored it. i was pretty skeptical at first (the cover of a manga is what usually draws me in) but don't let it fool you, that art grows on you & gets better, & it turns out to be a beautiful story~. I definitely recommend it<3!

I was thoroughly enjoying this story until around volume 12 or 13. I'm not sure how can Yung Jo claim to love Jiayu while simultaneously being such a total jerk. In addition, for being such a playboy, he's really awful at handling women. The chemistry between them was incredible before, but now it's really sort of deteriorated into romantic-tension-squabbles-without-romance. I'm kinda disappointed. sad

That said, the art was pretty, the research good, and it held my attention for a whole day, which is pretty awesome. So I gave it an 8. =D

Even though the characters aren't like the bishounen/shoujo nowadays -older- but they're still VERY hot biggrin and the story is really exciting, leaves you wanting more! Oh btw, the cover looks nothing like the people inside~ the art inside is MUCH better, 180 difference!

This series was kind of enthralling for me weirdly enough. I say its weird because the art wasn't exactly my favorite (i.e. I really had second thoughts about reading the manga when I first saw the artwork) and the story was a bit drawn-out for my personal tastes.
The reason for my absolute interest and undying devotion: Ding Jiaya (the main female lead). This may be the first time that I've liked and could relate to a female lead. I always find myself irritated with female leads because mangaka often make them unrealistically headstrong or innocent or weak or happy or stubborn or some other character that normal people have in real life just never to the extent that they're endowed with in the manga. Her personality was just so admirable, strong and REALISTIC: naive, bright, playful, but then when something really made her sad, she actually let herself wallow in it for a quite a bit before someone was able to pull her out of it. Ryan (our wonderful mangaka) had to have known someone like her in real life to be able to create a character with such a lasting impression.
Something else I loved about our female lead:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
She was willing to explore her options. Yes, she loved Yung Jo more than anyone else, but she didn't completely shoot down Aiwen when he made his feelings for her known. Of course she wasn't going to end up with him in the end, but she was willing to acknowledge that she liked him and seriously consider her options in a relatively realistic manner. I'm so very tired of lead female manga characters not even considering anyone else when it IS NOT working out with the main guy.

My annoyance with the manga: Yung Jo (the main male lead). Don't get me wrong: I love a headstrong, arrogant male lead in my manga, but sometimes he just went a bit too far for me.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
As in he just wasn't willing to apologize for anything he did to her and that really pissed me off because Jiaya loved, admired, and understood him too much to really demand one.


Besides my one little annoyance, the manga was GREAT. Of course, it gets slow at times (what manga that lasts for 15 volumes doesn't drag a bit at parts?), but the bit of dragging is the price we pay for a really memorable manga.

I gave it a 10 smile
