Well...this was a cute story. But I couldn´t help but feel that something was missing, the only reason I read furthur was because I wanted to get to the point where their feelings would be confirmed. But that never happend and it sorta left me hanging there waiting for something that would never come.
I´m not sure if I would call this a dark Shounen-ai, because it didn´t give me that feeling. It was more like... wannabe-dark. The authors tried to build up depth to it, but didn´t succed.

The Characters felt a bit too plain for my taste, they were pretty easy to forget wich I found a bit sad because the characters had huge potential. Also, the art was beautiful it really had me hooked with the ocean scenes.

I recommend this manga for people that like cute plots, for you who are thinking of reading this because of the "depth" or "dark" feeling, shouldn´t really get into this. Because you would get disappointed.

At first, I thought the photo backgrounds were lazy too, but as I read on I came to love it. It enhances the story rather than detracts from it, and it's probably not as easy as it seems, because the colors blend in with the character drawings well. The mangaka really knows what she's doing. As far as story goes, it's original and very touching. Wrapped up very well for me in the end. A must-read.

I LOVE this manhwa ALOT. One of my favorite shounen-ai stories EVER. It's extremely adorable and the characters are very beautiful. Definately for anyone who loves pretty boys (together) and angst. Usually those are the stories I HATE the most, but this story I just adored. The first chapter where the red head (forgot his name at the moment) is standing on the roof and the plastic bag flies in his face right as he's about to jump off the roof had me ROLLING for five minutes straight. Idk why but I just thought that was freaking hilarious! Anyway even though I see that some people dislike how the backgrounds are real photos just edited in, that was one thing I REALLY loved about the manhwa. It was pretty cool and different. But I think what stood out most for me was how gorgeous the characters were. The artwork for this story is just outstanding, one of the best I think. This is a must read for any shounen-ai lover!
Actually I just remembered that the brunette character of this story is my avatar. So as you can see, I'm not joking when I say I love this manhwa. The artwork is just so phenomenal. smile

I really liked the story....seeing the art (not backgrounds/photography) in colour was pretty....I couldn't stand the photographed in backgrounds and scenes....I don't know it just didn't seem to work well in any of the scenes except the ocean...that was really pretty

I'm not talking about being in a gang, being on the run, anything action-y like that. I'm talking about Han Soo-bum. His feelings are real. It's what I loved about this story. The feelings can be related to, even though it's not a "reality" manga. The art is beautiful. The story is wonderful concerning the emotions. I wish it was more developed though, between the two. It had the potential, but still amazing in the end. <3

I dunno, some people seems to complain about the fact that the artist used real images in place of backgrounds...but I actually think that's much harder to do...I mean now she had to set her characters around the background and for me at least it's harder to work backwards, I'm not saying she's like that but we can't condemn her for her lack of actual drawings, since even manipulating the images and doing all the coloring takes time and patience for it to look good....and she does a good job w/ it....
As for the story, I found it entertaining....the shonen-ai vibe was very minimal, but it was there and actually I'm glad that it wasn't more pronounced, not because I am against it, but because it made the story all the better....the slow buildup, I can believe that more than the ones where they are jumping into bed the moment they meet and start to say "I love you"
There was enough substance to keep me entertained, even if it might seem to be hidden....

This is a sweet story and have some philosophical moments about friendship, life, death.
It's quite short but the art is beautiful (the first manwha in full color that I ever read) and I really enjoyed.

Random pop song lyrics show up as "background music" occasionally, which translates weirdly to comic form. It treats suicide as lightly as any other "woe is me" teenager. The "backgrounds" are just blurred and 'watercolored' photos of backgrounds. The only real bit of plot is so brief and anti-climatic. This can barely even be called shounen-ai.

AND YET. There is just something about this one that I loved and it always leaves me wanting more. I think part of it is the pacing - it's much more slowly paced than most manga/manhwa, especially in this genre. You can actually believe them becoming close friends, and then possibly something more, instead of them falling into each other's arms instantly.

So, there's a lot of pros and cons to this manhwa, but in the end, I enjoyed it.

i loved this manhwa. a lot. in fact, it has easily become one of my favorites.
at first, the fact that a lot of the art is actual photos and the characters are drawn in did seem a bit lazy
but after reading further, it gave the story a more concrete, realistic feel to it and i fell head over heels.
especially since one of the characters loves photography
so, to actually see some amazing real-life photography really stunned me.
the symbolism of the photography being a self-reflection really does fit the art style of this manhwa
and i was really impressed with how much effort the artist spent on it all together.
the actual story may not be action packed and riveting
but i actually love how the story concentrates more on the characters themselves whom have their own weight to carry
and the way they personally deal with it is also very real.
overall, this manhwa is gorgeous and the story is very well-developed.

i definitely recommend this to anyone. (:

Interesting Artist to Watch

I like how the artist/writer used the technique of photographic backgrounds. It gave a fresh depth to the story along with the use of bright water-colour appearing art. It played in well with the theme of what the seemingly mundane photos meant to the man on the run, and how he defined himself--and kept his sanity--from his terribly painful past.

From the perspective of a murder-mystery, the ending was terrible! It dissolves into a complete escape attempt at writing a true ending. Thankfully, the author choose throughout to not really focus on the false accusation of murder; rather, it was about the growth of these two individuals as they defined themselves through their tumultuous young adulthood.

It never deals with sexuality (other than as insults during an assault), but it does begin to delve into true intimacy, care for another and the brilliance that still shines from people's broken souls. In fact, I wouldn't call this boy's love at all. It never went beyond anything further than a love between men that could be a close brother type relationship or best friend tenderness. I admire the artist's ability to write such a touching relationship that I found compelling even without the sexual love apparent.

I was mildly disappointed because it seemed to wrap up much too quickly even for the self-discovery and growth of a deep, close friendship.

There were moments of vision and compelling characterization, but there was also something lacking in cohesion for the entire piece. I think, with practice and more experience this manhwa writer will improve in both story telling and art.
