Very artistic work, and in many ways, very beautiful and exquisite. A short, sweet story with a touch of sadness that is worth the read. However, I am not one that is able to rate this a 10 purely based on its artistic value. I have this at 8/10 as I wasn't blown away by the story itself. Nevertheless, an enjoyable read that will give readers something unique to think about.

While reading I felt like I was experiencing the story as the main character, i was confused when she was, mad when she was and I also gradually began to like R as she did. I seriously despised the stupid artistic value and thought that the storyline was slow and a little pointless. I can't get over how stupid that man's head shape was, if you read it I'm sure you know who I'm talking about. The ending was really amazing though and I'm not exagerating. It made me cry a little bit but I love stories like that. smile

The art is relatively different from what you usually see in typical shoujo manga. The author has made an attempt to deliver a surreal atmosphere that reflects the mood of the characters.
There are certain life lessons embedded into the story. Readers from Asian countries may empathize with the characters.The story does reflect society in China, Japan, Vietnam, Korea, Singapore whereby parents place a lot of stress on studying and getting a degree.
Albeit all of these, I feel that the manhwa is overrated, similarly to all other manhwa on mangaupdates (except for Let Dai). Sometimes I feel like K-pop fans and Koreans are flooding the site with positive and only positive comments of manhwa. Frankly, this manhwa doesn't deserve the abnormally high average rating of 8.9/10. I feel that I was not that emotionally invested in the manhwa; it still lacks something to differentiate it from the typical shoujo comics.

im not really into these kind of stuff, so my opinion of it is just average. It is one people would consider beautiful story but for me it is just another weird read. It is certainly because, my idea of a "good story" is an exciting and romantic story, an epic shounen adventure, or a person with unlimited hidden potential who chases dreams.

il deung character is annoying at first, then during the middle of his problems it got interesting. But at the end he's just as annoying.

the ending was ok, not romantically ok though. That is why it is disappointing. What are those jealousy stuff on early chapters about? You just get the impression it will be a romantic story, but it's definitely not and all of that romance will be gone in the middle.

The coloring was really impressive, puts alot of focus on what needs to be focused, like main character's lips, or that 10k bill.

Just a warning for romance fans, this isnt ur sweet romance story.

But it was magical at the same time. The way it was shown and the message, it was totally beautiful. The characters were pretty and it was srsly very nice. It left a unique feeling inside me. But all cool and all , it was still a simple story. Anw, i was happy while reading it.

Reading it from the very first page, I was thrown into a magical world which the author had created. Everything in this story is just fantastic. It makes you wonder whether magic truly exists, and the author had created it perfectly while blending it into reality without making things seem ridiculous. Read it, and you'll be captured by it.

I almost never write a comment cus i think it's pointless, every person see a different aspect in every manga that draws u closer or keep u away... in this case as many said the art for me was the first bite, but as the story goes i could feel the good flavor of the story (a really good story) and how we feel the heavy of choices in life so well described among this few chaps...this one goes to my pocket of amazing reads.... have fun!

A really great read. While the art was good, I didn't like how he reused the same pictures all the time. Even so, that doesn't make me rate it anyless; everything was just very unique, with the panels and the scarce coloring. The background (especially the fairground scenes) was beautifully drawn.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I loved the metaphor with Il Deung's head as well. It was amazing to see how our opinions of R could change so much: dubious of his sanity, seeing how he was actually much like a child, as Yoon Ah had mentioned before, than the clever hottie we saw at first glance.

Just great.

As for the ending and the story:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I love how the author played with your emotions on whether or not R was a "real magician" or not. We really understood the confusion in Ah Ee's heart. Of course, he turns out not to be legit, but I think the matter was that in the end, he was still a "real magician" in the sense that he changed both Il Deung's and Yoon Ah's life, as if by magic.

The ending was very fitting in my opinion; it left many open doors, especially in the romance, which I think is not bad at all.

This manhwa was the first I ever read and I think it meant a lot to me. I can understand Yoon Ah, Il Deung, and R very well.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Adults/society may make you confused and doubt what you are doing, but as long as you hold onto and follow what is precious to you, you will never be astray. You'll also be able to cope also with the harsh realities that result from those around you, so you shouldn't be afraid (like R) of growing up. How is doing something you enjoy, no matter how childish, bad? Even if it seems stupid and odd to other people, it is a form of magic. I think when we start growing up and start looking down on those type of things, what we are in fact doing is narrowing down our scope of what we can see, and thus enjoy. Being a child at heart is an amazing magic trick, and we all can do it. We just have to follow our hearts, as trite and simple as that sounds.

As Steve Jobs has said in his speech to the 2005 Stanford graduates: "Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma--which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

This manhwa reminds me of Paradise Kiss. R resembles George so much and Yoon Ah with her idiosyncratic, recognizable hairstyle, like Yukari. R also had a similar personality to George at the beginning but of course that changes as you know.

Spoiler if you haven't read ParaKiss:

The ending was also much like ParaKiss as well.

I agree with the person who says this is a modernized version of Peter Pan.

While we all have the fate of becoming adults someday, what we must learn is to keep a child's heart. To trust your instincts, to never become unteachable, to always go after the things you love and enjoy, and to always believe in magic.

This manhwa is amazing!! The ending gave me chills!!! The story was very well done. It's was a good example of character growth and the effects of things that happen everyday. The art was well done and enjoyable. I loved it <3
