Description
Reputation is everything in a world of icons and popularity contests. So why not score some points here and there by being the nice guy? This is the way Kang Shin-gi legitimizes the fake personality he has everyone believing. Armed with his above average looks and a (completely false) angel-like personality, he has every girl in school head over heels, and all the guys looking to him for guidance. With the exception of having a screwed up cross-dressing devil for a dad, Shin-giís life is absolute perfection (*cough* of lies), until one day, Um Seung-hui transfers to his school.

While being a complete martial artist freak, she also likes to fib just a little in front of those who know herÖ you know, like acting like she's just a scared little girl who'd play with kittens rather than break brick walls with her head! After all, how can anything go wrong when you're as cute as Seung-hui?

Fate has brought these two masters of lies together, and the two must battle it out to see who will be crowned the undefeated heavy-weight champion of fakeness!

Ok. I've already read 200+ manga by the time I came across this one... Naturally, I developed skepticism pretty quickly....

This manga is funny, to a degree. It is also interesting, to a degree. The crossdressing really plays a huge role in the manga, but in the end it becomes a bit tiring for me. Plus, just two weeks after reading this, I've already forgotten most of what it was about.

Conclusion: it's not really memorable, if you know what I mean....

Nonetheless, I still recommend reading this if you don't have anything else to do. It'll lighten up your day if you're feeling down, so, why not give it a try? biggrin

35% of this manhwa is about cross-dressing. The main character seems to employ this tatic to solve most of his problems, which gets tiring and freeks me out as to why someone would choose to cross-dress to solve simple problems. I guess the author was going for cheap laughs.

Its mostly the same jokes over and over, the author does not seem to realize it's been played out. The character's funny faces are not funny at all. However, the plot was comedic and deserves merit.

the main character is what i call funny
and yet still has a goal and reputation to keep
i love how funny the story can be and still have a great story with a lot of development
the main character also changes from weak to strong but damn i just cant stop laughing
this manga is not just comedy but also has a story
the 1st chapter wil make you love the main character and keep reading to see where it will lead

I agree with vash on this one. Although the last chapter might not be the best, considering the reasons why the manhwa was rushed It wouldn't seem fair to negatively criticize it. In retrospect, there were many times that I couldn't stop laughing maniacally in my room, even in the last chapters where some claim that it has dropped in quality to be honest I didn't feel any drop in it. To be fair I could say that this manhwa had some of the funniest scenes from what I 've read such as Kang's fight with Michael in the karate dojo. Furthermore, a great amount manga/manhwa/movies/tv series etc are based in misunderstandings (and obviously in the personalities of the protagonists) as a plot generator. If you can't laugh with the gags in this one then either you lack humor or the humor it presents it's not to your cup of tea. I highly recommend it and I will continue reading the author's/ artist's work in the future.

This is probably the best comedy I will ever read... The ending was not so great, but everything else made me laugh like hell, so I won't drop it down I'm giving it 100... no, 10... Despite the rushed ending it is a gag manga, so plotwise I didn't have enormous expectations...

Just as mastaof said.... Dammit... It was great but in my case it went from a 9 to a 6....cuz the ending..... I mean.... This was like more rushed than an avg rushed ending.... Holy crap... The author just pooped on it and said here.... Sigh.. And it was going so good with the random gags... Alot of surreal humor stuff in this... But not tht well executed... But... It was ignorable... Ofcourse until the ending

Desperate, incompetent, and jarring

Ugh. The first chapter jumps from one potentially comedic situation to the next and it plays out exactly as how we expect it would. Characters overreact in a desperate attempt to manufacture humor. Also, that the protagonist is fake receives the equivalent of being highlighted, underlined, and then slammed into your face--we get it, move on, it's only there because you think it would be funny.

Extremely jarring. The pacing is so weird, because there are panels that serve no purpose and don't belong on the page. Continuity in "editing" is *not there*. To lead to a surprise shot we go from a close-up so as to put readers in the limited vision of the character, not a full-body + overhead, and there are multiple other instances where the author just doesn't seem to get the rules of visual/cinematic storytelling. And it's the first chapter, so there should be a strong point-of-view character to follow, as it is the story switches POV on a whim.

The drawing style in comedic scenes fluctuate between American cartoonish and manga funny and add that to the manwha faces it just takes me out of the story completely.

One last note: barf-worthy cheesy dialogues. If I am to believe that this guy is as smart as the story says he is he must demonstrate something other than being smarter than all the unbelievably dumb boxes of rocks around him. It starts with dialog.

Last last note: Yes, please empower your strong female character by showing her panties while she's beating up bad guys. To be fair this was a decade ago but let's acknowledge it anyway.

Storytelling is over-the-top. Plot depends on cliched coincidental circumstances, so characters have no agency or distinct personality. Waaay less amusing than the description would suggest. I added 1 point for strong female.

The theme is that he's considered a great role model but he's actually a very underhanded guy. The mix ups are hilarious, and so is the way that he screws over others. However, in the recent arc it started getting to be too much of a fight manga.

Errrrrrrrr...its not bad but...I felt like this manga has a lot of potiential that's wasted on humour and tbh I didn't really find this funny ...its alright but I wish it was more serious, it could of really been great I think.Tbh there's possibly zero romance (up to volume 9 anyway) and I didn't really mind that, but I just don't know where this manga is going, its nice but not a manga I would take seriously.its been put on my 'trashy on hold list'
