From Noctis Op.92:
17 year old exemplary student Bae Sugu lives alone with his father, the vice principal of his school. Weighed down by his father's expectations, Sugu has to hide his one true passion: swimsuits. He does not know where it comes from, but his passion is pure and genuine - and often misunderstood. But one day, when Sugu is secretly taking pictures of swimsuits by the pool, he is caught by his homeroom teacher who forces him into something ridiculous. Can Sugu find something to get out of the standstill his life has come to? Can his heart beat again?

Strange series

This is one really weird series... but it's good.

I say it's strange because of the unexpected twists and turns the story takes. Right from the beginning there is an odd mix of heavy emotions and gag comedy. I didn't expect it to be any deeper than the shallow end of the pool, but if you're looking for laughs and a happy read, this isn't the right series for you.

You should expect the same as can be seen in others of the mangaka's works. Insightful comments on people's frustrations and struggles to find themselves. I hope you enjoy Sugu's journey~

As always, Ha Il Gwon delivers magnificently.

With one guy and a bunch of girls, it seems like the routine setup for a harem plot, but instead remains focused on the main character and his problems in life. As a student, his situation is easy to relate to, and he and his love interest undergo major characterization. Funny and intelligent, this is a must read for anyone who loved Annarasumanara (another Ha Il Gwon work- you can see his style developing here, especially in the last few chapters).

What a great series it turned out. Started off funny along with its intricate character study. Seemed to stumble in the middle for a bit but it had such a strong final third. Excellent depth to the characters. I can't recommend this enough.

my first manhwa ever read. LOL on the first impression most had on this manhwa after reading the synopsis. I really love the story and how Ha ll Gwon uses colours, background, drawings and scrollings to magnify emotions of the characters and motions. Every character in the story is so individual and lively. love how each character n plot uncovers as we are scrolling down the page.

i really really like the character development undergoes by main character and the realization he get at the end of this webtoon. he remind me of myself however i still have along way to go to be honest like him! yes, he is one of the few main character that i actually like, i usually like the plot or the side characters more than a main character.

the art is of course topnotch, something that seems to be a given in webtoon and general korean manhwa. i like the way he draw the bodies. i am too comfortable with the stick thin lolipop head figures in manga, this just jarred me to reality that it dont work that way.

the artist also deserve praise for his skillful use of the webtoon medium where it is read by scrolling. the atmosphere get richer and richer with the scroll, something definitely unique in webtoon, i cant get that by reading normal manga.

the plot is quite simple and i think the repercussion is not at all as sever as the transgression made, but this is a light hearted manga so i suppose it is okay. a nice little happy ending, and a message for the reader, this is a very good conclusion.

totally recommended.

A little bit disapointed

I read this because of some good comments I read, but I was slightly disappointed. I really don't consider it Seinen or romance for that matter. It is more sports than anything else. There was a slight romantic subplot...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The Author chose a comedy ending over a touching one. He did confess but she didn't respond and when they were close to a kiss, they headbutted each other. I guess your suppose to assume they became a couple but it never made it clear.

It was really great. Although I don't know anything about water polo and swimming it was never boring. I liked the fact that the characters weren't perfect, they were full of flaws but I liked them anyway. Sugu is my favourite.

By the way - my first comment here, but I have to write it because I was surprised myself that I was so absorbed by this story.

I loved it! Although I felt like some situations were overly explained... don't know how to say it! Like when you read something between lines it gives you a deep sensation, and when it is explained it vanishes.

Very funny in the beginning of the story. I'm beginning to love the Web Comics now because every panel is colored and in the this story, the images are beautiful. Adding gender bender in the story is even better. I highly recommended people who like gender bender and romance. I also recommend to people another Web Comic called Green Boy.

HHAHAHAHA! I'm lovin' this webcomic!!! I died when he said "that" to the girl in the 1st chapter. And I laughed so hard OUT LOUD at the last page of chapter 2! HAHA I recommend this!!
Edit, about 1 1/2 hours later!: I just finished the webcomic! (well, i just read the RAWs and looked at the pics to understand it!) It's very touching, and the ending was superb! I just hope that Hidden Gems didn't die! >.< I would love to know what they were saying! Anyways, this manhwa/webcomic is RECOMMENDED!!!
