Description
"I'm pretty sure that the downfall of humans can be completely attributed to their curiosity", such is Ewon Jung's philosophy.
Because of his curiosity and his "affectionate nature", Ewon somehow finds himself, after cheating one time too many on Jiho, dumped and threatened into working as a caretaker for Jiho's new boyfriend, Mookyul... who just so happens to be a Mafia Boss.

And it is just the beginning of Ewon's troubles.

Between Jiho, who still burns at Ewon's infidelity, and Mookyul, gang-leader with movie star good looks who starts to take a keen interest in him, Ewon slowly gets entangled in a net more intricate than that of the dangerous underworld, how will he survive it?

Emotional Rollercoaster

Overall, I'd recommend the manga, if just purely for the art, so be it. I have to say that the drawing is sweet~ It's like having a spoonful of eyecandy shoved down your throat, or would that be cornea? That said, the plot's not half-bad. Personally, I'd give the manga a 9, but you see, the problem that lies with me is the very fact that I'm shallow and frivolous enough to enjoy silly, ridiculous things of which others claim to lack in substance, so on that note, I'm not an exactly reliable source.

Onto the topic of character development, I must now admit that this makes me a worse source since my friends tell me that I'm (rather regrettably) totally sick in the head. Let's just say that I really hate perfectly good personalities and leave it at that. So yes, I'm a huge fan of Asami in the Finder series, he's manipulative and callous and it took him all the way to the top, so I respect that. Same thing for Mookyul here, I honestly wouldn't care if he was more morally flawed than he is now, it makes him utterly real to me.

I like people with self-preservation, I like people with the brains and the guts to do what it takes to claw their way to the top and come out smelling like a rose. I respect those people. I like people who knows how to protect what's theirs' and keep what's theirs. And if all that that makes me immoral, then I say so be it. And getting past all that, I also have a fondness for Ewon, because he's insecure and he's a coward, and I can empathize. We can't all be almighty and fearless.

The only downside to this manga that I can think of is the fact that it's an emotional rollercoaster. One moment, the world's all sunny, everything's good and bright and cheerful, the next, a thundercloud comes rolling in and you didn't anticipate it to bring an umbrella. It's like what Ewon says, he's happy one moment and then, he's thrown into the pits of hell. Trust me when I say he'll drag you with him. In any case, I think it's a pretty good manga, of course if you're the type to preach about morals and all that, and if you're not quite so much of a sadist (my friends tell me I am) then maybe it isn't for you.

I couldn't stand Jiho. Such a girl! Mookyul was a little too violent for my taste. Other than that the main story was good an I felt my heart go "bathump" when
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Ewon woke up, looking at the ring on his finger, matching the one he gave to Mookyul

Sooo romantic smile
The art was ok. I usually love Manhwa's artstyle but in this one I only liked the faces, the bodies were a little too stiff.

Well, this surely did captivate me..halfway that is. This is a very angsty manhwa, and if you're looking for a fluffy shoujo-yaoi then you won't like this. Reading this, it reminded me of View-finder, which i never finished nor liked. This is less harsh than view-finder, and although this is categorized as 'yaoi' they don't actually show any sex scenes.. only hints and kisses.

Anyways, i thought this was good, but then nearing the end (chapter 40-49), it got played out-- too dramatic and the main character started to become wimpy going through the whole "its all my fault" thing and how the main guy needs to be "saved". At this point, i lost intent and wasn't hyped to finish reading the manhwa. Because of that i took off a point.

Also, the artist focuses a lot of the character's faces, and less on the other aspects. Additionally, i felt that the two main characters could have been better developed.. Somehow after i finished reading this manga i felt that it was lacking.. It could have been better. There wasn't much of a plot. The only thing the manhwa had going was the angst and emotion.

Well, i really enjoyed the first half or so of the manga, so I'd say give it a try.

edit:~ okay i just finished reading the three DJS and i have to say that i enjoyed those better than the original even though they were much shorter! I think its a must need to read the DJS afterward or you'll be missing on A LOT (huge emphasis).

Love or hate it, you can't deny the fact that it's not like most of the yaoi out there. It is a kind of series that you place on the shelves among Usagi otoko tora otoko, BrotherxBrother, or even Viewfinder. To me, yes it's that good. The character's? totally relateable, I mean of course we may not be as bad-ass, or handsome, or rich, but they hold the essence that most people can identify with: the need to love. Sounds cliche? well there may be some splatters of cliche every now and again in the plots, but it also have angst, passion, comedy, all the roller coasters of emotions you just can't get with every average joe of yaois. To those who think Mookyul doing it with the old fart is gross, that's the kind of stuff most Korean dramas consist of, and trust me it can get pretty intense. I liked that Ewon has a strong sense of and at times, lack there of morality. eg defending his friends when Mookyul was about to give em hell. The touch of infidelity adds a type of dark chaos to their relationship, yet in the end, their love triumphs. This kind of manwha crosses borders, explores areas not touched because of our yaoi fantasies for the semexuke to be lovey dovey and totally committed to each other, with the exception of several incidents of misunderstands far in between. Maybe it's not the most loved yaoi out there, but it is one of the most unique and well developed. My two cents.

Maybe it's just ppl around me, but they keep pestering me abt the "Korean" aspect of it. In fact I dont like the art (as well as most Manhwa) and when I finally decided to give it a try, I gave up halfway. and it's just tiring to read, really. Drama after drama ensues while I dont know how to feel about it, it doesnt touch me at all.

i mean really? i have heard so much of how awesome this is and how its a staple for all yaoi manga, a must read.... reality is, art it okay, story-line predictable and honestly the side characters were more entertaining than the protagonists! .... so glad i didn't buy it!

Lemme say that the drama is good. The intensity kept me up. But it kept reminding me of "100% Perfect Girl" because it went really dark, one is pushing the other away, the jealously, and any other dark emotions.

Character developments.....I dunno about that. I don't know if it did develop, but I did like the side characters. They crack me up sometimes. The side characters, I mean the other employees.

Storyplot is intense as I said, but I'll have to lower my score. It did have its yaoi cliche, but it wasn't as cheesy as I thought.

The artwork, I thought it was really good. Apparently some other reviews disagree with me.

The ending was a good wrap up. But I did feel a bit dissatisfied. Maybe 'cause his past was revealed at the very end, the last chapter. Usually the last chapter is supposed to be not so dark and it's a wrap up. Well, it did wrap it up, but it still left a linger of emotional for me. Maybe it's good, but I prefer a very happy ending to make me forget those negative emotions.

Well, I think it's one of those series that you really really like or you really really hate. For me, I'm leaning toward the like side. So I recommend this series. It's up to you if you like it or not.

Nevertheless, I love it! The ending is a bit abrupt for me, while the chapter on Ewon's disappearance is unnecessary. The art is neat and beautiful, and this manhwa is full of eye candies, yum...

One of the best

I have to say that i may be biased in my review of this series. Its one of the first yaoi/shounen-ai stories i read and it remains one of my favourites to date. First of all, the art is lovely. The characters are all well drawn, the panel placing and flow of the story through the art is also excellent. As for the story and characters - they are great. The characters have many cute moments, as well as moments where you can't help but laugh, but also manage to put on a serious enough face when called for. The relationship between the two main characters is also noteworthy. They have contrasting personalities with just enough similarity to make things interesting, this keeps their interactions tense, amusing and captivating. This is the sort of story you just don't want to put down bigrazz Throw in some gangster action, some love triangles and a ton of threats (usually from the boss to Ewon) and you've got a nice little recipe for a highly entertaining read.

I must say, without a doubt, that this is one of the best yaoi manga I have ever read. For once, there is character development where it is more than just i-rape-you-and-we-live-happily-ever-after. Imagine that. The depth of emotion and the amount of drama was just perfect (I can never have enough drama!). The manga flowed smoothly, and it was ... wait for it ... funny! I really don't find many mangas that are able to incorporate humor without making it weird or awkward. Furthermore, the art is gorgeous. I melted into puddles countless times ~ I only wish I can find more mangas exactly like this!
