Description
Se-Joon and Se-Wa are siblings with a dark, complex relationship. Se-Wa, a girl considered psychotic by others, is attached to her brother... a little too attached. In her eyes, there is only Se-Joon, and no one else. And what of Se-Joon's feelings?

This manhwa contains incest themes.

Dark & Angsty

MU categorizes Flowers of Evil as romance but I wouldn't really call it a romance myself. I'd rather say its more about obsession.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Se-Joon is secretly obsessed/ in love-ish with Se-Wa but is afraid to show his emotions.He is afraid of what everyone else will say and think. Se-Wa is just confusing brotherly love with actual love since her brother secretly manipulates her into thinking she is in love with him.


I loved the art! It's gorgeous but the emotions could have been better portrayed. Hated the cliffy hanger lol, but I get what the author was trying to do. Overall, it was like a back and forth tug-of-war with these two. Its "I love you" one minute and the next its "I hate you."

Very dark, angsty series - which I love. It's not for those who are uncomfortable with incest because this manga takes it to a serious and thoughtful level. I think the mangaka thought out the scenes with plenty of foreshadowing, and I appreciate it. Reactions that make little sense or seem off in the beginning make perfect sense near the end. Manga is all about the angst and emotional drama. Just enjoy the ride.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Seh-wah did not romantically love Seh-joon. She was codependent on him. He isolated her on purpose, and he admits it. She was scared of being alone, and she was mentally unstable + emotionally stunted, resulting in her crazy obsession with her brother. She breaks out of this at the end when someone finally befriends her. Seh-joon, on the other hand, loved Seh-wah, and he knew that her crazy tantrums didn't mean that she romantically loved him. That's why he broke down on her and asked her if she knew what love really meant. He fought with himself the entire series. He loved her. He wanted to take her crazy obsession with him at face value but knew she did not actually feel the same way. He was deathly scared of condemnation from others. Seh-joon did NOT struggle with his own morals with concern to his love. He struggled with how other people would see it and the consequences for it. He was scared of what people would do if they found out. He was scared that God would punish him. Hence the frequent focus on his reactions when someone almost finds out something.

Not a romance. Well, the romance is more of a side dish and it was sincere only in

This is incest. This was Seh-joon manipulating everyone just to keep Seh-wa all to himself. The latter was young and naive - isolated from her peers because of a controlling twin. Sung-chan was completely right, Seh-wa mistook dependence for romantic love.


It was definitely sad, because I was really hoping that in some way all of them could be happy. Yes, even

still deserved to be happy. The characterization was nicely done such that all of them felt like real people with really dark problems. And the art, ho my gosh, the art - so gorgeous!

I originally tried to read this manhwa because I heard there was a male yandere in it, and was I satisfied by what I found? yes <3

Recommended for people that like dark, twisted stories about obsessive love.

Se Wah gets attacked with a box cutter by whatsherface
and read to the end from there and it was STILL almost unbearably long.

Not to mention that it's kinda fucked up overall, and doesn't come to a happy resolution. The resolution is... satisfying... in that, while it's not what you hoped for, necessarily, it's sort of what you expected, so it's not super upsetting. That, and I was just so happy to finally be finished!!

I really wish Se Wah had ended up with Gi Hoon, though. Which is actually sort of surprising, for me, because I had expected to be rooting for Se Joon.

It's a psycho story with out emotion.. Art work is beautiful yet expressionless.. Big question mark left in the end..

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
so the sister twin I'd so crazy that even while having a girlfriend And saying she will leave him alone she doesn't! The brother twin is crazy cause he pretends not to care but he is more obsessed with her.. And the kid that wanted revenge.. What was his master plan to the end of his revenge??? Makes no sense in the end..

They're drawn so expressionless it's almost impossible to feel how messed up the story is suppost to look.

I was hesitant to read this manhwa for the longest time because of the theme. I'm glad I read it and I'm particularly satisfied with the conclusion, specifically Se Wa's realization. I like the turn around from the beginning where the readers may think Se-Wa is the obsessive twin with the unhealthy attachment and affection but we learn the truth towards the end. I love the manhwa ended with the story about the boy who is loved by everyone. I felt it tied the story together nicely and concluded appropriately. The decision to cut off the point before Se-Joon was about to say, "I love you," was great. Tragic but disgustingly beautiful.

Wow! Just wow! First of all I would like to take time to appreciate the manhwaga's talent. I mean, to be able to justify incest in such an amazing and non guilty way, is really difficult, but he did it. And maybe this is the only book in which I didn't have anything to complain about in the ending. The ending was perfect! And I didn't cry or feel bad either (even though normally such an ending is bound to torment you for days, if not months). Perfectly justified and satisfying. The story developed well, it had a certain darkness that I love and long for in books, the characters were good, the art, everything. Not a single complaint which is almost impossible since even my favorite manhwa has its flaws and this one doesn't. Glad I read it. I have a special respect for this story. So everyone out there, PLEASE READ!!!

Tone?

I agree with awavingflag that the art was beautiful but inexpressive. What I found dislikable even more was how dark the drawings were, Im not too sure but I think you call it the tone (sorry if Im wrong!)
I guess it was because the manhwa's plot was also dark and that was so the art could match but sometimes it was too much on my eyes. It actually stopped me reacting strongly to the manhwa as the black/darkgrey seemes to repress the manhwa and its feelings. Like everything is detached which makes it harder to connect with the characters. Overall great story of course, just that personally I wish for a slightly lighter tone in some happier areas (were there any...?)
