I didn't read the tags when i chose to read this webtoon... I was in for a huge shock somewhere around the latter half of the manwha LOL
anyhow, it's a brilliantly written series that I somehow always end up pondering about while walking home...
Good, but not amazing
People rave about this, but I don't find it especially amazing.. rather on the average side.
PROS: - Has some good suspense moments - A few good twists
CONS: - Romance was too fast.. I didn't feel anything for the main couple. - Characters weren't all that likeable.. I wasn't fond of any of the characters. The gym teacher was alright though. - Turns more and more cliche, especially the ending. Very unsatisfying imo... It was also quite predictable. - Average art
Overall, the cons outweigh the pros, and it was disappointing given all the rave. It's an alright manhwa, just not amazing unless you're 100% new to the mystery/psychological genre.

This series gets a lot of recommendations, most of which stating it is a very good manhwa, when I surf through the forums. I decided to give it a try, making this my second manhwa I've finished (the first one is Bongcheon District Ghost) And at last I see why people recommend this a lot--it is very good.
If you ever wondered what mixture of romance, mystery, supernatural, drama, and horror would be like, you can now find the answer by reading Melo Holic.
At first I found the story a great romance, although a bit too fast paced, and I expected it to continue like that. But then there came some creepy elements, which are not bad. And then woah, woah, so drama. And... a great twist awaited me after that. It's nothing like I predicted and expected to be at the start point.
Surprisingly, instead of causing me annoyance by having all these things together, Melo Holic somehow managed to express them at certain good times and sequence. If this story were liquor, it would be the one mixed by the best bartender. The plot is just fantastic; I can tell it is very well planned. The last arc is beautiful. What's even better is that the series never loses its main point--love.
The end, I mean that of the epilogue, is also something I'm so satisfied with. It is a good example of a great way of ending a story open-ended.
I don't understand why people keep saying this series is full of cliches. I can't agree with that. Sure it may have fairly common elements for its kind (I mean, common for any of its kinds) but the story is really something fresh and original. This is probably because I don't read enough though.
The art is nice. The techniques of storytelling not only through drawn images, but also texts and photographs are stunning.
This may sound like daydreaming, but the power of love is strong in this one. And that's just enough. I've now completely become one of those who recommend this.
Did I mention I finished it in one sitting?

Totally Awesome !!!

Now The Review ~
For me this is a good ending... I want to make my self believe that or I gonna feel empty for a few days...believe at the end when he open the door he saw her sit on the bed and watching him with a smile and teary eye...and he become quiet shock and then he know this is not a dream...the last smile he show us is the pure smile that full of happiness...why would the author use that smile for someone dead...

A collection of cliches and lame tropes, executed extremely poorly and in the most contrived fashion possible. The artists themselves admit at the end that they intended to make the story contain as many romance fiction cliches as humanly possible. I think that really says it all. The story stands on outrageous and unbelievable back stories and introductions of third characters that are the enemy of the couple. Without these the story would not be able to fill 10 pages.

The whole split personality crazy psycho killer thing before the end of the manhwa was an enormous ass-pull that illustrates the most important thing to know about this work:
they were making it up as they went along. This series was written at an orderly schedule, by committee. they all gathered around a table and asked each other, what story should we tell this week? Each chapter is actually its own story, yet it has the same characters playing in it. And the authors let the reader mistakenly believe the manhwa is one singular story instead of a weekly publication of whatever they came up with before breakfast, no matter how nonsensical or completely unrelated to the rest of the work it might be.

good one, but overrated
so many people saying it's a great twist but i dont find so.. may be because i have read the same kinds that i can find out what happens later in ths comic.. another manhwas/mangas like Cheese in the Trap, Monsters, Pandora hearts etc still have better plot twist from this (really unexpectable). but i cant say this manhwa is bad, it's a good one, above average but not that great. 7 out of 10 from because i both the art and plot are good enough (unlike those cheesy mangas/manhwas which i cant say the titles in here)
...so Insane, Crazy, Twisted, EVER!
But this is DEFINITELY GREAT MANHWA with Romance, Drama, Mystery, Psychological, Tragedy, Slice of life! It's scary Manhwa! Not have Horror genre, but definitely HORROR! Scary! And Not Normal! Abnormal! But the good thing is, the ending is acceptable! WORTH! As long as you not scared at unexpected picture or close to surprise thing.
Not a typical romance manhwa
The romance as a whole was good and I really liked the supernatural element added to the manhwa. The relationship started out like another typically romance but after chapter 56 things started to down hill for me.
The psychological element after chapter 56 was really a turn off for me because the plot just got even more cliche. I felt that the manhwa could have been better but after so and so happened I just felt that the manhwa was a real letdown since it had potential. The comedy was funny for maybe about the first half and then it started to be repetitive.
Overall he manhwa is different but not much that will make me rate this manhwa above a 8.5/10. I still recommend people to read this manhwa though since some people will like the twist and some like me who don't like it.
Warning: This webcomic is not what it appears to be. It is both a horror story and a love story.
To be honest, I felt like I had been tricked by the authors. The story wasn't at all what I was expecting, and a lot of potential was given up for the plot twists and freaky nature of some of the characters. There was so much drama that it pretty much broke through my willing suspension of belief. The psychological aspect was also handled fairly unrealistically. It was disappointing, but the ending kind of makes up for it (at least the main character managed to stay consistent). Despite all its flaws, the story was still fairly engrossing (hey, I read all the way to the end), so I'd recommend it if you like mysterious, twisty horror/love stories. xD

In TV Tropes terms, this whole story is a case of What the Heck, Heroine?

It starts out sweet, then descends into a twisting turning plot that will draw you in and make you read it until the end. It is simply a perfect example of an amazing webcomic. As some below me have said though, DO NOT READ SPOILERS, this is an amazing story and reading spoilers would take some of the fun out of reading it.
