oh good gosh that was probably one of the most horrible endings to a manhwa. WHY?!! an ending like this is torture to the fans! my dreams have been shattered... -_______- i wish i'd read the comments on this manhwa before i even tried to read it.....
[edit by mod, Warning: possible spoiler] I thought the ending was waayyy to confusing. It wasnt clear, and seemed like it there was more. Is it just me, or did anyone else not get it? And what's with Jimmy? There seems to be a lot of unexplained stuff. As well, Dan Won was kind of annoying (and pathetic) at parts - I liked Jimmy better. But the art's fairly good in some parts, and it has it's moments. Nothing great and extraordinary, but still ok. The biggest down point is that nothing is actually resolved at the end. No explanations, no further character development, and it left off with a few really confusing words that just leaves the reader wondering "wtf"...

This manga has a loose plotline and it seemed like it was created on an idea of the cliched poor girl trying to bag a rich man. However, the main character isn't well developed and unlike the usual cliched revelation of love over money, she just remains at a basic standstill. There was basically no conclusion to a lot of the character's storyline. Basically this manga is one hot mess. Nice to look and and some cute scenes but it made little sense.

this began as one of my favourite mangas, it was funny and unique according to plot and characters. I really likes the artwork and splash pages too, very cutesy. Being only 3 volumes long, I expected a dramatic end... instead... it just cuts off, tying no lose ends. It was disappointing, I didn't even bother reading the one shot at the end. But i still have good memories laughing, though the translation is pants... =__=;; I didn't get what was with Jimmy too ~__~;; I'm guessing he was dumped... but... it doesn't explain well into the story... nothing does T__T!!!!

It was about to... but it never did.
Yeah! If I could describe this story, I would say "It was about to... but it never did." When you think that the story is getting there; the characters are growing and developing; and that finally the plot is becoming more intense and attractive... it is abruptly switched to a random story about a guy and his magic kingdom. Argh! Is that a joke? I was rooting for Jimmy, thinking "I really want to know about his background! I'm sure he's the important missing piece of this charade!" But... NO! We'll never find the missing piece and also, we'll never really understand why it ended so abruptly!
I won't even talk about the art, which is good. The characters are cute and expressive. But who cares about it when the plot line is warped?
What the @#&%!!! Come on?!? Is there a part missing at that scanlation or the translation wasn't quite accurate? I guess I'll never know, cuz this is one of the few manga stories that, if it's ever sold here, I won't buy it.

A Huge Disappointment!!
At first I was like "Wow this manhwa sounds great!" Then right at the last moment I was like "Umm where's the next volume?" It was too much for me because this was the first time reading such a manhwa that's a total cliffhanger!! I'll give it a 1 for the illustrations but for the plot I'll give it a BIG FAT ZERO!!!! The ending sucks!!!!!! I thought that Jimmy might have actually started thinking of her more as a girl because she's so much like her mom but NO! The author left it hanging right there!!!!!!!!!
I loved the first 2 volumes but when it ended it felt so incomplete. As if it had to go on for like 5 more volumes or something. I wanted to know more about Jimmy and what happened to the mom? It was utterly confusing and weird. I didnt like dan that much... Jimmy was way to awesome XD At the end of the manhwa I rechecked and rechecked but it had just ended...oh well it had some nice comedy to it.
The whole story was good... until the end.
The plotline was ok, Jimmy was cool, Lang-bee was ok, but I hated DanWon!!! Yeah, I was rootin' ferr him to get the girl, but man was he annoying!!! And the ending? Does that even count as an ending?? I'm hoping there's a sequel or something to this 'cause it was downright empty for me. I mean come on! Actually thought it was pretty decent until the ending, but i don't suggest yah read it. Just leaves you empty.

I liked it, but way too many loose ends.
I actually liked the idea and characters (I thought Dan Won was dorky and cute and was totally rooting for him), but this series should have been at least twice as long. It sort of wanders around and sets the stage for fun stuff and then just stops. The main romance is resolved I suppose (but although you can guess, you never actually KNOW how she really feels) but dammit I want payoff cuteness like an epilogue with the world's most retarded date or something. And more development! What was up with her lesbian buddy? What happens to Yuka? WTF is Jimmy's deal? How did he meet her mom and why does he like her and why is he alone at his age and how is he such a badass? And what about the closure and reconciliation Lang-Bee clearly needs to have with her mom? And why did that one chick give Lang-Bee her card and then it never got mentioned again? Argh
To me, stories are like hiking up a plot mountain to the climax. As you go, you pick stuff up and take it along, because you'll need to use it at some point. Authors, don't give the reader a bunch of crap to carry and then never do anything with it!
As an aside, am I on drugs or is Leedo in the last story a dude? I mean, okay, we never have barechested proof, but this mangaka knows how to draw cute girls and, uh, that's a dude, I swear. (I'd need to see the original text to be sure, but come on, just look at it! Were the translators afraid of a little hint of gayness or something? >_>)
