Description
From NetComics:

In a whirlwind narrative of vanity and conceit, Can't Lose You is the story of two characters who come from opposite worlds but are united by the most unlikely of circumstances: Yooi is a desperate girl working day and night to earn pennies in hopes of one day paying off her father's debts.

Lida comes from privilege and excess, the heiress to an unbelievable fortune and a marriage match she cannot wait to consummate. But when the two girls meet and discover the one thing they have in common is their identical faces their lives take an unexpected turn. As Yooi accepts the irresistible offer of becoming Lida's double, she finds herself in over her head, being chased by assassins and falling head over heels for Lida's fiancé. Meanwhile, Lida is completely unaware of the shocking revelation awaiting her.

Bull S***

Excuse my foul language but bull poopie. I'm a little bias I admit. The only innocent/goody goody protagonist I like is in Yaoi and skip beat. This character wasn't even really innocent. She was just morally sound. However, my good sir, I found myself favoring lida near in the middle. I didn't dislike yooi I just preferred lida. Anyway, I didn't like the end but whatever. I'll get over it just not worth the sleep I missed.

Predictable

It was totally not my cup of tea. Then again, I didn't really like 100% Perfect Girl either, so I guess I am to blame for choosing this series as well.

The plot. It was just too cheesy and predictable. Just another modern-day fairytale. If it were a movie or TV seres, it would be a Mexican soap opera. You could guess what would happen 2-4 volumes ahead of what you were reading. And...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
prophecies? Really? I couldn't have thought of a more unoriginal way to twist the plot even if I wanted to. The same goes for all the shooting, bombing, kidnapping, etc.


The characters. That was what really pissed me off. They lacked both depht and consistency.
Yooi.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
At first I liked her - she seemed strong-willed, independent and cheerful. Just likeable. The scene at the orphanage totally brought out her best traits and it looked promising. Then, somewhere along the way, she becomes this weak crybaby who only depends on others and waits for her prince charming to save her. She barely had any impact on the plot. Hooray for the heroine!

The main guy. He was the most superficial and inconsistent of them all. He seemed more like an idea than a real person. If he was really suffering and being torn apart on the inside, then why wasn't it shown in the manhwa? There was no middle part between his contradictions. Let's take it like this: if you're writing an essay, you need a proposition and an argument but between them has to be some sort of reasoning, intellectualization (pardon me if my wording is off, I'm not a native speaker). This is what his character lacked.
Lida, Ilya, Nao (the Bunny boy).
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
They were the most likeable to me in the whole story. I must say, when Lida (supposedly, the antagonist) told Ilya to protect Yooi, I started to expect a lot from this series since such a thing wasn't usual for the typical shoujo. I loved the relationships between these characters and the way it unfolded. I loved Ilya's devotion to Lida and symphaties for Yooi. I've also got to say, it didn't take me long to figure that Ilya would die later and Lida would only realize her love and start to regret after that. Still, it didn't bug me too much. I think that Lida, as a character, completely outweighs Yooi since she is multi-layered. If this story had been told from her perspective, it would have been so much better. And Nao was the sweetheart of the story. He was a cute relief from all that pointless drama. I think that the story between them was the only thing in this manhwa that had real meaning and not the corny love-conquers-all kind of message.


And now - the final blow of criticism. It seemed that this manhwa only followed some formula and feelings, as a way to develop a character, were completely ignored. Where were the moments of reflection, determination, regret, even plain suffering? Even romance was petty!
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
If the love between two characters was supposed to be so deep that it wouldn't fade even in a year after a bitter break-up, then it should have had more ground than simple attraction and an accidental kiss. What about compassion, uncertainty and trying to understand each other? What about blaming the other person and later forgiving them and finding peace (I'm talking about Yooi, her dad, mother, grandfather and probably everything else in this story)? And the most ridiculous: a friend and a person who you love die (both bodygourds),you shed a few tears and soon after it's totally okay? Where's the self-blaming and gradual healing? Not in this manhwa, apparently.


I give this a 4 because art, as soon as you get used to it, is fine and I managed to finish it, which means it was still readable. And at least the pace was okay too. Still, not recommended.

Wow, I wrote a lot.

Whao, another gut wrenching work of Wann. Again, filled with melodrama and character intensity.
It's about two twins. One of the twins is destined to overthrow her grandfather's empire.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
When the grandfather finds out about this, he tries to kill the child of destiny, but the mother somehow saves the child.

As far as the romance goes, it was good. Well, the milder twin and his partner's relationship was like any other shoujo manga. Only unsettling part was that
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
He slapped her and she took it in good grace -.- I would have ripped his GUTS OUT! HOW DARE HE!!!!!!

Coming to her twin, I LOVED her relationship with her body guard. Though it was dramatic, it was.... beautiful. I didn't quiet understand her character at first, but she grows on you as the story progresses.

The ending....man it was sad... I wonder why they haven't categorized this series as tragedy. Don't worry, it's not a sad ending, just...I felt bad :'(

Art - 9/10
Story- 8/10
Characters - 7/10 (Didn't really like the milder twin -.-)

Good read. Recommended.

I really enjoyed this. Bit did kind of hated the beginning. How can someone be so bitchy?! is what I thought. But It got better and I wanted more. I practically had to force myself to go to sleep smh. I do have to say that I didn't like the way it ended at all. I mean really?!

But besides that, the art was amazing, and the story was good too. Highly recommended.

Good characters but...

This manhua was also recommended to me for being... realistic though even the premise should have been fair warning that reality would not make a regular appearance in this story. I liked the characters, especially the "evil" twin sister Lida, she was refreshing compared to other representations of rich, cruel girls in manga/manhua. Honestly, though
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the whole bit about these fortune tellers foretelling Yooi murdering her grandfather were a bit silly to me. I kept wondering, "Excuse me but, who are you? And em, why are you here? And why must you foretell their futures in such a ominous dramatic fashion?" I could almost see the lightening bolts shooting out of the sky and hear the "DUN DUN DUN!" It was a bit annoying in that sense... I just would have been like, "Prophesies? Girl, what the hell you talkin about? Get yo ass outta here!" Something along those lines.

I liked it, but it did take me a while to finish, because at times I felt it was too dry. The only reason I even gave it the score I did was because of
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
ilya and Lida, they were my favorite couple in this whole thing, and their story is just too tragic.
I found it hard to like or dislike the two main characters, Yooi and the male lead (I can't even remember his name), but it was definitely still a good story. Don't get me wrong I didn't dislike them, but I didn't like them either, they were just there...even though they were the main lead.

Pleasantly Dramatic

While there were quite a few plot twists and cheesy moments, the drama in this manhua was quite pleasant. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I won't regret it if I pick it up an reread it again later.

It wasn't spectacular, but I finished this going, "That wasn't nearly half-bad." While a few characters had endings that I didn't quite want to happen, all of their endings were suitable for the tone.

Ilya was my favourite character by far, because he didn't try to explain his feelings with clichés. He has an interesting background, and I could rely on what he would do/respond. Not to the point of predictability, just to the point that I didn't think that the author manipulated him; he always behaved like himself, and not just some convenient character to further the plot.

There wasn't too much character development, but enough. Although, the "development" of the male lead seemed really fake to me. Just my opinion though. The male lead was still enjoyable to read about.

Anyways, I do recommend it. It's not too too long, so if you don't enjoy it, you haven't wasted much time. Enjoy!

Started out good, but...

I began to read this manhwa because I saw it on a recommendation thread for something "realistic" -- let me say now that the series isn't life-like in the least. The characters, though with interesting and believable personalities at first, shape up to be angsty, unrealistic, and 1-dimensional. The plot itself also started out alright but, just as the characters, became dramatic in a way that was almost laughable in how unrealistic it was.

I think the author had a good idea and a good theme so to speak, but she took a wrong turn when she tried to make it dramatic in the way that she did.

Seriously Depressing :/

At 1st the story was good, the female lead was strong, funny etc. Then all of the disappeared and everything is about "oh I need you or I can't live" or "Please don't go" etc. It seriously got on my nerves and the female lead is crying and whining a lot too, no more funny moments.

Still recommended though, a very good story but I just don't like the comedy to angst transition sad

I feel like this could have been so much better than it was. While reading it I was far too anxious to get to the end as I would have liked which to me suggests the author made the story a little too angsty and not reader-friendly enough.
I also found myself a little confused at times as to who was who and I got angry at some of the stupid decisions the characters made.
Like a lot of manga there were some truly evil characters and at times this felt unrealistic.
Overall it was a good read at first but then got too annoying and I skipped a lot. Not sure I would recommend it but it isn't bad enough for me to slate.
