Jae is a Korean student who came to Europe to study art. Things aren't going her way, but she's determined to make it. One night, her friend Melissa brings a drunk guy to her apartment and asks if he can stay there for the night. Jae doesn't like it, but agrees. That night she has a dream that the drunk guy drinks her blood... which, of course, turns out NOT to be a dream.
Jae is surprisingly unafraid of the vampire, Michael, and starts to paint his portrait. The two strike an unusual deal: if Jae allows the vampire to feed on her, he will pose for her. His beauty and alluring preternatural energy could be exactly what Jae needs to finally succeed as a painter.

No estoy en el derecho de decir que alguien haya dado un mal comentario. Pero, si, me esmero en dar una puntuación a un manga, ya que es un trabajo tan agotador y arduo.
Muchas veces, cuando leo algo que me aburre, ya sea mi estado de ánimo, lo dejo, prefiero dar leerlo en otro momento, o nunca más leerlo. No comento sobre obras que no completo de leer.
Model, hablando de su diseño gráfico, es bastante estético(a su manera) para ser un manhwa. Los escenarios y los objetos traen un aire muy apasionado por los vampiros y el arte europeo. Vean la fecha en la que ha sido producida (1999). En esos años los vampiros contaban de mucha popularidad, he cierto que hay muchos factores en común que he encontrado de libros/pinturas sobre vampiros. Y más en esta época, que ya los vampiros se ha vuelto un cliché. Pero, aun así me atreví a leerlo. Mis emociones también se pusieron en juego, hubo partes muy románticas y que me capturaron por su belleza. Tiene un gran impacto en cuanto a su suspenso. Creo que en esos años pudieron hacer una película basada en esto y hubiera salido muy bien.

En el momento en que Jae se confiesa a Michael, y él la acepta, la historia potente historia de vampiro da un gran giro para mí. Es como una metáfora, una pequeña luz que se abre en es espesa historia de vampiros. No hay que subestimarlo por el 'final', si no ver al manga con 7 tomos completos.

Muchos de nosotros solemos leer esto en un mes, semanas o días muchas veces, se quitamos el valor que tiene por situaciones que van cambiando, para su público y el autor hay un transcurso de 3 años para asimilar esta obra. Merece un poco de consideración, sin leer nada del manga. Léanlo con tranquilidad.

I'm really biased when it comes to Lee So Young's art... My first favorite manga/manhwa from her was Arcana..and I drew me to Model. I swear that I read this whole manga/manhwa and completed it..but I guess I never wrote a review so I forgot it.

The story...wasn't the greatest..the transaction scenes were really confusing sometimes. The plot itself was sort of interesting. So many circles, I felt like I was being pushed back and forth. It was also complicated and it got annoying towards the end but I'm glad it was a happy ending..very glad ^_^
The art was great but the proportions really annoyed me LOL.

There were a lot of things I didn't like about this manga. For example, Micheal looked like a woman. I'm pretty sure Michael was supposed to be portrayed as a very beautiful male vampire, but I guess that didn't work out so good; he ended looking like your typical pretty woman. Jae looked good though; kind of like a tomboy but still maintain her chick physiques.

I didn't like how this was supposed to be a deal between Michael and Jae; trading her blood in exchange for him to model for her and it ended going to his past. And it sucks that she fell in love with a female-looking vampire instead of Michael's son, the male who ACTUALLY looks like a male. The characters look kind of floppy, like their limbs have no bones or something and they move their legs around by flopping them. But overall, I think Michael's past does make sense (not the best past). I admire Michael's son's courage for trying to convince Jae to fall in love with him instead but fails. That's about the only part I liked.

i frickin' love Lee So Young.

as quoted from KittyTeea....
"To be honest I don't even understand why this manga was labeled as shoujo."

'it's labelled as shoujo??' is what i first thought and scrolled up to see with my own eyes. but i agree, i dont' understnad why it's labelled shoujo at's more like...josei? anyway, definite read. you miss out if you dont read this, man. i know not everyone likes the artwork..(i love effeminate boys.) but the story is interesting - though hard to keep up with at some points.. so be prepared.

"The development of the relationship between Jae and Michael is lovely to watch. I am more than willing to overlook some of the "plotholes" of the story because no romance/mystery manga has captivated me so much."

I agree. The relationship of Jae and Michael was indeed captivating. I'm not very big on vampire romances but this one was layed out in such an effective way that you care about them. I would love to read from this author again.

So far the best vampire manga i have read thus far. Every volume bringing more things to life, yet making you fear reaching the end. At first i was not sure about the art but is quite good and the first two volumes are quite funny at times. I could not help but want more at the end, great ending too which just made it even better.

[edit by mod, Warning: Possible spoiler]
This manhwa is great!! I loved it, the artwork is amazing and the story is really poetic. It's like listening to a song, trying to figure out its pieces. The story has a meaning and it's well developed, without dragging itself. Talking about the ending, it's actually happy, which made me surprised and greatly satisfied.
I recommend it to everyone that took interest enough to read what I'm writing. You wont regret it. ^^

I love vampire stories, but this manhwa is just crappy. It doesn't flow well and the characters/story are boring. I actually bought some of the volumes after reading the prelude (which made it look interesting) ..felt sick about the purchase after reading more of it. It's all angst with no development.

Great artwork, great start. Only problem was that the abrupt introduction of the other characters(other than the main cast) in the later volumes sort of caused many issues with the plotline: continuity, characterisation, etc. It makes me feel as though they'd decided to make the series longer.
