What is a sweet, soft-spoken girl (Ha Li Kang) to do when her brothers, having just learned fencing and martial arts, decide to test some moves out on her in order to "tame her" and make her into their "little slave?" She runs to her knightly friend (Te Hu Kang, not related to Ha Li) for protection, of course. However, what happens when, instead of comforting her, he tells her that she is a coward for running away like a puppy who needs constant protection? No, she does not break down and cry like a weak girl. Instead, she resolves to grow stronger. With rigorous training everyday, Ha Li goes from being a scared girl who cries for help to becoming the Jjang (boss of a gang) of the Doberman gang. However, events lead to Ha Li getting in an accident with a truck. Afterwards, she is reborn into the body of a beautiful, but weak, rich girl Aram Han.

At her new school, everyone is surprised at the sudden change they see in Aram, who has gone from a gloomy, good student to a rude, carefree troublemaker. Many people bully her. When Ha Li finds out that it is all due to Sin Uoo Park, the handsome prince and Jjang of the school who detests Aram, she decides to have a duel with him for the position of Jjang. What will happen next is for you to find out in this romantic comedy Korean manhwa.

Typical HMR but interesting   
Rating: 3.5 / 10.0

Don't get me wrong, I think it wasn't as bad as the rest of her works. *laughs* That's not saying much, because the rest of her works are really bad. But still, its very typical of this author. Stupid muscleheads, gluttons, stupidity, wickedness, possessiveness, abusive relationships etc. Character designs are typical. Personality types are typical. Character interactions are typical. Now that I think about it, this manhwa is so typical.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
However, this manga started strong. Despite some pitfalls, I thoroughly enjoyed the first arc. I thought Ha Ji was (le gasp) cute and hilarious. She was stupid but can be really cunning without meaning to. I thought that was interesting and would've loved to see that stuff happen due to that manipulation. Spoiler alert: Shame it didn't go in that direction. Anyways, Aram's (the real one) story is fairly tragic. To destroy yourself because of selfishness, that's always unfortunate.

But as the series went on, the laziness became apparent. This should've been two completely separate stories. What was the point of that body swap thing if it was going to be swept under the freaking rug? The author still shows the 'shinigami' occasionally, then forgets about him. Like what? Why did the manhwa become so melodramatic all of the sudden? The first arc could have been a so-so romantic comedy, the second a psychological romance.

I thought that the parts when everyone got really crazy were the most interesting. As I've mentioned before, it would've been better if Ha Ji's 'wickedness' bit her in the ass. It could have a perfect setup for character growth. How do you even deal with a psycho obsessed with you? Especially when he was a dear friend? What does this say about Ha Ji's true nature? Well, to be fair, Ha Ji's kidnapping by Han Seo was the closest thing I could get. Ha Ji unveiled herself in that brief gun scene. She was incredibly greedy, and the fact that she still justified her actions showed how manipulative she was. When it seemed that Han Seo was the cunning one, Ha Ji was just as messed up.

The ending says it all, well, in my opinion. See how these two people lived their lives after they fell to the sea. Who was the one who still tried to include themselves in another's life? Who was the one who still needed convincing in order to let someone go?

Man, I get way too much into this. *Sorry*

Unfortunately, I was more invested on the poison in Ha Ji and Han Seo's relationship than the former's romance with the main guy. I wished HMR went in that direction, instead of resorting to her cliches. It would've been a decent melodrama if needed be. At the very least, the ending was good for everyone. Save for that pedophilia thing, because uhm, just NO.

This is not for everybody. It is violent and dramatic to the extreme. The character can be so incredibly stupid that she makes you want to beat your head against the first available hard surface. The story sometimes drags on a tad too long (but i must say that i was never bored).
That being said . . . i Loved this story! It was different and entertaining.
It was so funny! I laughed so hard my stomach hurt! I do admit that once the bodies were switched back it wasnt as funny (mainly because the bringer of death wasnt there anymore- i loved him!) However it was funny through out the series it just got slightly less amusing.
I LOVED the bringer of death's funny commentary and facial expresions! They killed me!
It also got WAY more dramatic after the bodies switched back. which is not altogether a bad thing but a little less drama would have been better.
The characters were very memorable and lovable. They were rounded and well thought out characters who you couldnt help getting attached to.
All in all a very entertaining read.

I really Really liked this manga to begin with. However, half way through it just started to repeat itself and was dragged out for WAY to long. Really just get the two main people together and call that that. You don't need to make the same problems happen over and over and over again. it gets boring. I wouldve liked it better if i had read the first half and then the last chapter.

I found this one rather funny and different from anything I've personally read before, so I stuck with it. The main character was fun, if not painfully naive (and I mean really *twitch*). I liked it all up until a little past the middle where something totally ridiculous happened which made everything you've read up until that point obsolete. I was totally pissed because it never got resolved. First half: good, second half: terrible. For a shoujo Manhwa, it sure had a lot of attempted rapes. That's all I really remember from this one anymore...

I liked it at first. But a lot of what went on with the whole supernatural stuff was never really explained very well.I think it all went downhill for me when the girl went back to her original body. After that it got really boring and it was felt pretty repetative.
I also didnt like how it ended with the two main characters I remember the little ghost guy said that their relationship will 'shake all of Korea' or something like that but in the end they just started a produce type business. And I didnt really feel 'the love' with them. I still felt like the guy liked her better when she was in that other body rather then her real one.
But I dont know. Thats just my oppinion

Best manga

This is the best manga series I have ever read. Even though it was a bit long and I wasn't really use to the drawing style, the story was very well written. It had strong yet complex plot and never failed to catch my attention. There were a lot of twists and it never really dragged like some other long mangas. I love the heroine of the story who was so strong willed and completely clueless. Hot blooded woman was an amazing manga.

The reason I voted this so low it that it kept getting worse and worse and the heroine turned out to be someone I can't admire at all.

But I only gave it a 7 because of how to all turned out. Plot weakened considerably after she got her body back, and characters became too complex and turned inconsistent.

I might elaborate this post later, but I'll say that the story should have ended when Han Seo had his final realization about letting go of Ha Ji. (Vol. 24, p.87)

Thoughts on the final climax of the story (only part I really liked after Ha Ji was in her own body again):

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I liked the shooting scene because it was like the last "intimate encounter" between Ha Ji and Han Seo, where both of them revealed their true natures. I think Ha Ji was really greedy (Han Seo's right hand man saw through her), but I think maybe she was so cunning to the extent that she realized she had to betray Han Seo's trust so he could finally let go of her and live his own life. Han Seo ( regarding the final note about his 'dandelion personality') was much too loyal to even think about putting himself first, and if she had continued to interact with him, he would have, as he said "thrown himself down to hell with her". So I think of it as Ha Ji sparing Han Seo, but yeah, as her actions are super inconsistent afterwards and before this incident, I do think she is a mastermind at manipulating people's faith in her; she only failed to satisfy her desires because she revealed herself to be unreasonably greedy in the end. In short, Han Seo escaped her and I am sort of glad about that, even though I feel bad for all the emotional trauma she inflicted on him (well he did sort of get revenge by doing all the things he did - which, if Ha Ji was manipulating him, was justified)

The real protaganist should have been Han Seo. I wanted to know more about him and his issues and how he met his right hand man than what Ha Ji wanted for dinner and Sin Uoo's inability to be honest.

Hot Blooded Woman had been one of the first manhwa I had read. It had me right from the beginning. Initially the characters might give off the warning signs for cliché and mediocrity for those that want everything dished out from the get-go. In a way it was. Haji gives off a cool aura but afterward it seemed to disintegrate. People are left wondering where that ice mama on the motor bike went. By paying attention to a certain mind reader's comments one can see where a character's personality begins and their facade ends. The characters shape the story.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I say facade but with Haji it's less of a facade and more of an unhealthy unwillingness to face the truth. It's as if she represses it for later despite it being implied multiple times by her closet friends that she's acting the whole time. The author just couldn't make that seem completely the case for me..

The art itself is pretty decent and even better considering the other works posted under the same name. I love it when the characters get a shadowy effect on their features which serves to point out their hidden intention or angst. For the most part they are distinguishable from one another.

Read it for the laughs than anything else. The romance won't do anything more than make you giggle. The relationships might give one a small thrill and they seem to zig-zap between humorous and borderline disturbing. Conversely this isn't for someone seeking gore, high levels of violence, or genius thinking, nor is it for one that wants an easy read. The conclusions aren't over the top and spontaneous which is unusual for shoujo genre. It touches on the higher thinking of an adult but never graps it.

Please note that I was much younger when I first read this. As a child I stayed up late at night to finish reading it. It made my head spin and my stomach flip. Older I still find it enjoyable but I can point out several things wrong. This is more touched upon in this site's user review. Also, I DIDN'T come across these observations AFTER reading the translator's note (or the review for that matter). It just cemented in my mind that others could come to the same conclusion. Others might disagree and that's fine and dandy.
