I get it.
I get why everyone is pissed off. Yes, the ending is so vague, it's annoying. Yes, Jimmy was left so unknown. Yes, the ending in general ended too abrupt and just sucked. But! If you forget about the ending and just focus on the story, characters, everything, then you gotta admit, Priceless was awesome. I laughed in every chapter, like laugh out loud laugh. The characters were awesome. The main wasn't a wimp (she had some great insults in there). Jimmy was hilarious and mysterious (I think the reason he was looking for Lang-bee was because her Mom left Jimmy [or just died?] and he was desperate to get her back so he searched for her daughter and yea... If that's what Young-You was doing, then it was brilliant.) Dan was original in his own way. A loser poet who's rich. Yea, don't see many of those, do you?
The best part about this manhwa is there are no fillers. So it just goes and goes. People are living there lives (in a hilarious way) and eventually things happen, people meet and it works. If you hate abrupt endings (it almost feels like she just had to end it so she left it nice and ambiguous) and a slightly twisted heroine (she has an obsession for money) then you might find this a little annoying. But don't let those things stop you from reading. Honestly it was a tad slow at first, but I wasn't familiar with the characters and once I "knew" who I was reading, it was a fun and great read.
Oh, the art is okay in the beginning. But by the end it's amazing. I love Young-You's art. So unique, fresh and fun. Don't let the ending scare you off.
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!!!!!!!!!
The art was just gorgeous. Real bishies, gorgeous pen and ink lines, superb clothing ideas for the characters. Then we get to the plot. ... It was the worst let down ever. Period. There WAS no climax in the series! Dan Won FINALLY asks her out, and then.. NOTHING. WE GET NOTHING ABOUT JIMMY'S PAST, OR THE RELATIONSHIP WITH JIMMY AND HER MOTHER.
NOTHING. NADA. ZIP. ZERO. Freaking waste of time. Pure eyecandy. Plot? What plot? The ending had more holes than a slice of Swiss cheese. How on earth did a manga like this get licensed, no, even green-lit for the storyboard? Wonders will never cease.
I wish there was more of Jimmy. He was an engima and very mysterious, YET the MOST INTERESTING CHARACTER ends with a TERRIBLE LAST PAGE. I AM SO PISSED.
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.

not so good for my heart.
I think...the story could be more deep. Like the story of Jimmy, and what the hell with the end!?
:l the story was funny, but I think it was too short!
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.....
oh well it just seems to me as if i wasted my time reading this. I at least expected a half descent end but this has NO end it was left totally open. WTF is all i can say about it. I was hoping her and jimmy would maybe end together. I must admit I did enjoy the story though, it just seems as though the author gave up on it.
lame ending D:
Spoiler (highlight to view)
okay, I was expecting at least an "ok" ending, but whaaaat? It ended like nothing... That was so weird, I actually thought that this would've been a good manhwa since "kill me, kiss me" was pretty good(it was a little messy though). And I didn't get the whole "stepfather" thing that was going on.. I really would've wanted to know some more about Jimmy and Lang-bee's mom. Although one good thing did happen in the end, that's Dan and Lang-bee ending up togehter. ^^ I'll give this a 7, and the reason is the super weird ending and that it was too short (only 3 volumes).
Okay, I really liked the story but..the ending just killed everything. I feel like I wasted my time reading it because of the horrible ending. I really want to ask the author how the ending was suppose to be. I'm just dying to know.
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.
