Having returned to college after a year long break, Hong Sul, a hard-working over-achiever, inadvertently got on the wrong side of a suspiciously perfect senior named Yoo Jung. From then on, her life took a turn for the worse - and Sul was almost certain it was all Jung's doing. So why is he suddenly acting so friendly a year later?

My eyes are so friggin' tired cuz I just read like 60 something chapters in one go...
it was just too addicting!
Amazing characterization. Incredible writing and pacing. The art is so nice too.
I just hate how slow it is... and how addicting... thus why it is sucking away so much of my life.
But now I"m caught up, just gotta wait patiently! ~oh well it's worth the wait
If you enjoy reading about a mature, smart, practical heroine; with a very realistic plot that makes you think; PICK THIS UP!

Even though I got frustrated numerous time while reading the main characters thoughts and situations, I couldn't stop reading! Webcomics are great, and this is one of the best I've read; it really pulls you in to the character's situations. It was like I was watching a Korean drama. Ha ha.
I enjoy some of the knowledge/wisdom discussed or said by the characters.

The author denied the original scanlating group to scanlate and host the webtoon on other sites; the current group actually uses a plug-in which requires readers to visit the original site where the raw is found and read the translation that is superimposed on the raw image. This is different to conventional scanlating, and the author actually gets more readership that way, which affects her webtoon's popularity directly (by attracting additional viewers). So what's there to be disappointed about? Odd Squad's method is is ingenious.

The way the characters' brains work is soooo realistic (I'm not talking about the context, but how they think)
I love this webtoon, it's told directly from the girl's perspective... and she has a normal girl's mind, not the naive, idiotic shoujo girl.
It's a gem that I absolutely recommend reading.
Oooh I know what this is... Pride and Prejudice..hehehehe

I almost gave up on this one, as the first 20 chapters put my brain into a zone of in-activity, yet after chapter 21 it picks up and becomes fantastic! So don't give up, even if the characters seem flat at first, it all makes sense later and they all become well rounded and dynamic.
This Webcomic goes from failure to a total WIN!

This was my first encounter with webtoons and I fell IN LOVE. The plot is just AMAZING!! You really never know what would happen next.

At first, we all thought the Sunbae was evil or psycho but he's actually a great person..It's just that society and the people around him made him seem out of place and weird. Everything is seen through Sul's perspective so no wonder he looked like a conniving person. But he's so sweeeeeeeeeet <3

Ah and although on mangfox, it's only up to chapter 26, I'm up to chapter 47 now. They actually have it up on Naver (korean website) where they have up to the latest chapters in Korean but the scanlators translated it all for you so all we have to do is follow the steps on how to work it. Easy as ABCs smile

I love this manhwa. The art is really nice, and comfortable to look at. The heroine of the story is so cute and funny and I love her so much xD. Although I am a high school student I enjoy reading about college and university students more. I think it's interesting how the story goes through the flashbacks, it adds much to the story. I cant find any chapters after ch.25, but I heard you can somehow translate it using google chrome? Well, I'm not great when it comes to following directions on the computer (I'm just an idiot so don't mind me), but I'm sure I'll find a way soon :3 Anyways I'm not so great with constructive criticism, but if you happen to stumble by, make sure you read this manhwa!

i have no interest in korean things, like their dramas and songs (i slightly watched or heard them but it's because my sister and mom like it), but not to manhwas. especially this one, although read this feels like watching k-drama in fun and exciting way. biggrin

The art is simple, but yet really beautiful. It's all color, so obviously a lot of work has gone into making it. The coloring may be inconsistent at times, but who's really looking hard at the difference from one frame to another, right? The work that's put into it is amazing. The lines are clean. Very good on the eyes. To be honest, after reading quite a lot of manhwa, I have developed this stereotype of "manhwa art" --some of you might know what I'm talking about; a lot of manhwa has this specific type of art that's very angle-ly and a lot of emphasis on length. Even though this is a manhwa, the art is different from most manhwa I have read so far. It's sooooo much better!!

The whole romance thing is really interesting!! The heroine is super lovable. She is all that I love in a character. It's funny as hell, too. Haha!! The awkward silences are so well timed. It's perfect. I'm reading it right now as I typed this out. I cannot get enough of it so I end up reading all that's available in one go.
The romance is the center of the plot. At first, I did not see how the romance can ever develop between the two. The beginning part was more about the mystery of the guy. The heroine is not interested (in denial or otherwise) in the guy until ..hmmm.. way later on. But even though the actual romance develops slowly, there's so much of other stuff to keep you occupy. The romance is realistic; not the whole love-at-first-sight in shojo manga. The characters are deep; they have their own lives. The heroine is incredibly perceptive and sensitive, so she observes others very well. As a result, first person point of view is a breeze since seeing the world through the perceptive heroine's eyes showed us a lot of what's going on in the story. (It's not all 1st pov, of course (that would be too limiting)).

Updated: I just finished reading the latest chapter of the "2nd season," chapter 60--and I'm currently in love with this male protagonist. Technically, there seems to be 2 male leads now. It might turn into a love triangle later (spoiler, but not really). The male protagonist is so deep. Mysterious, a bit twisted and dark, but oh so interesting!! He's not one dimensional, that's for sure. I don't know what he's thinking and I don't know this type, so I can't predict what he's gonna do at all!! This makes for a very exciting romantic drama.

I really recommend this manhwa for people who want to get out of the typical shojoesque (sorry, using japanese term here) manga.

My All-time Favorite

I'm not sure if it's because I've just finished the latest chapter (I LOVE YOU ODD SQUAD) or what, but this is seriously my favorite story EVER. Like for real!!!!! I have enough love for it to make me want to write a cheesy, fangirly (and valley-girl sounding) review for it.

Let's just skip the talk about the amazing plot (because you should just read it to find out for yourself) and let me drool over the characters:

Sul: I can't say enough about her! She's so realistic and likeable. She doesn't act like any of the cliche girls in manga/manhwa. Even though in the beginning her suspicions seem over the top, the truth is, I think I would act exactly like her. Who wouldn't be suspicious of the popular, too nice, seems-to-be-perfect guy suddenly acting (overly)friendly to you? I know, in real life, I would definitely doubt him. Especially with all the (sometimes confusing) past events that's happened involving him.

Yoo Jung: At first, I believed he was really fake. All of his actions seemed way too naive for me. Him being nice to Sul, his innocent jokes, and his generosity were all not believable. But recently...I've started to think he's being sincere (well, to Sul...He's still sorta sketchy on everything else). I'm still wondering what happened in the past to make him start wanting to be close to Sul, though. When I find that out, I hope it makes me like him better. For now, he's one of my least favorite characters. (But that still doesn't mean I don't like him. I actually do, just not as much as others.)

In Ho: Hmm...I don't really have an opinion of him yet. He kinda reminds me of Shizuo from Durarara!! though. Especially with the waiter/bow tie hate. I find him a little more attractive than Yoo Jung, but probably because he's left handed. I have a thing for lefties. Nearly all of my crushes/people I find attractive seem to be left-handed. It's a coincidence, I swear...

Bo Ra: I like her. Her happy-go-lucky personality is great. She's a great friend to Sul. No complaints, really...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I didn't even mind it when she says that she's already aware of Eun Taek's feelings. Usually, that kind of girl pisses me off, but the way she handled it didn't. It's like, she already sorta knows that her and Eun Taek are gonna end up together eventually, so for right now they shouldn't leave Sul out.

Eun Taek: My favorite character (next to Sul). He's such a boss. I love him. I want to marry him, actually. Him, Bo Ra, and Sul are so cute together. He's such a good friend to Sul, as well (regarding the whole Young Gon incident especially). Like it says when he gets a haircut, "Eun Taek was cool."

Joo Yeon: She's such a perfect bitch. I hate her so much, but she really adds to the story. All of her ill-timed situations with Sul needed to be there (despite how much I wanted to kill her).

Sang Chul: He fucking pisses me off. Ugh. But I guess he's adding to the story, too. He makes the Ah Young situation worse and that makes her want to meet Yoo Jung even more.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
And he starts getting suspicious of Yoo Jung, too.
I guess every story needs an idiot like him (since he's appeared a lot more than I thought he should).

If I continue, this review will be a whole page and I doubt anyone would read it (or even read all of this). So, despite how much I want to talk about Sul's neighbor Joo Yong, Assistant Professor Huh, annoying Ah Young, (somewhat) understandable Jae Woo, copycat Min Soo, and (how much I liked the character/creepiness of) Young Gon, I won't.

Just one last thing, could someone PM me and explain who the fuck Mona is? And what their gender is? And why their parents decided to be corny and name the other kid Lisa? (JK on the last part...)
