Se-Joon and Se-Wa are siblings with a dark, complex relationship. Se-Wa, a girl considered psychotic by others, is attached to her brother... a little too attached. In her eyes, there is only Se-Joon, and no one else. And what of Se-Joon's feelings?

This manhwa contains incest themes.

Great Art, Disturbingly Great Story

This Manhwa has gorgeous art, if you liked it, I'd reccomend to read "savage garden", which is just as good. When I first started reading this one I thought, "This is just totally F***ed up!!", but I couldn't stop anyway. Soooo sad. Incredible! I definitely recommend it!

So beautiful, heart-clenching, insane, disturbing...omfg. I didn't think a manga could make me feel so many emotions. I RECOMMEND X 10. Read it til' the end. You will remain in a state of shock.

Let me talk about this story while the wound is still fresh. Wow~

Art—gorgeous. What's with all these beautiful manhwas? I've yet to find a badly drawn one. Anyway, the character designs are great. Their expressions seem heart-felt and real. Argh, I can't talk about the art right now when my mind is going crazy over the story, which I just finished.

Now, for the long awaited story review. My main thought is "Wow." I have been dazzled. At first the story was somewhat light-hearted and, overall, gave the feeling of "numb". There were some cute, humorous moments and some parts that gave me the butterflies because it was so romantic—BUT. As the plot progresses, a dark, mature theme slides in. So many moments were very chilly and, indeed, gave me the shivers. It's a dark, tantalizing story, so don't be fooled by the light hearted start. Anyway, the ending and anything around the vicinity of the ending just made me go overboard. It was just so... So...—

Hehe, okay, now to the characters. I truly admire this author in some sort morbid admiration due to this story. The characters are just like the story—"Wow". The twins are truly, absolutely insane. Haha, you'll find out how and why upon reading the story. It's what makes the story just so morbidly juicy. They're utterly unpredictable and I sense some changes in personality later on. It's just crazy. Seriously, just read it.

Blah, overall, thumbs up for the originality. You cannot miss this story...

The not foreseeable ending made up for its flaws that shoujos commonly have. Well this one wasn't all that bad in its stories. With a certain different ending I would probably like it even more. More mature but less tragic.
Some images were very pretty too but that art was not consistent.

A must read for fans of tragic eternal love stuff. And don't worry, it's not so cheesy.

amazing drama, heartwrenching twists..and beautiful art

i was rooting for se-joon the whole time...they look so good together!! not to forget they love each other so much...the fake sung-chan was so creepy and fake. lol..it was thanks to him that se-joon broke out of his shell though, but he brought their downfall too, so i cant complain about him too much!~ sigh~ i love this manga ;A;.. (still dont like Gi Hoon though -_- haha)
beautiful art..and i do think the characters develop a lot. the only thing i would have wanted, was a mutual love between them other than one chasing after the other all the time..
but what can you expect from a taboo incest story? incest being regarded as the most taboo of relationships in general...
i guess that this great barrier (incest nature) could have made their love twisted into their obsession..

another thing is the realistic level... hm i thought that jealousy could make people go to such lengths, and so it was very realistic.. but everyone in this manhwa was driven by some twisted desire, none of the love was pure love..so that made the world seem really complicated! It has a lot of rare occurrences stuffed together too - stalkers, twins, taboo love, murder for another.. but actually, i think Se-Wa's mother and Gi Hoon's father were the only ones who had rather purer emotions bigrazz but they were kinda side-characters...
the manhwa leaves me with a bittersweet taste. xP

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Hm...most people are thinking that Se Wa loved GiHoon in the end...but i think thats not right .__. she loved SeJoon so strongly...AND they even had sex in the end! ;A; and she was happy, they held hands the next day to sleep too =.=;; so i truly think they love each other. I think she only sees GiHoon as her one and only friend that is fully there for her other than SeJoon..so you can interpret that Se-Wa was only in shock that her one and only "friend" sung-chan was dead/injured, and cant believe it, so she was constantly calling him in the end...it makes sense! its too painful to think that se-joon's love was totally unrequited......plus, the last name she thought of was Se-Joon~ andd, i think that was her ghost in the end XD

As a manga itself, it's not bad, nicely done and gets you hooked, certainly one of the better incest out there. Art isn't that great if you ask me, don't like shoujo style art in general.

Now for my personal opinion
This is why I don't read/like shoujo... retarded main characters, plot devices and ending. It's good because everyone gets sucked in by all the drama, but that's all to it. Take away the drama and you have lame characters who screw themselvs over. Buts that's life. Pretty much.

About the lame main male character Seh Joon...
Spoiler (highlight to view)
In the beginning he's cool, acting rationally. Then he loses it with a series of idiotic actions. First of all he sucks for pushing her away then regretting it. The Seh Wah also sucks for watching him jump in front of a car and still have everything stay the same afterwards. After they finally get together, the n00b goes out and his mind breaks, confessing everything aloud. With the other guy listening. Then when he is threatened after being found out....
he acts like [url=http://www.mangafox.com/manga/flowers_of_evil/v07/c023/40.html]this[/url]
compare it [url=http://www.mangafox.com/manga/yubisaki_milktea/v05/c000/10.html]another[/url ] reaction from a different manga.
Okay the context is totally different but still. If Seh Joon wanted to act cool any time in the manga that was the time, and he chickened out.
Then afterwards Seh Joon beats the Gi Hoon in panic because he didn't know what else to do. /facepalm. And so they run away. Another flare of stupidity, not bringing anything with them.


But I guess those character flaws is what makes the manga portray incest realistically. Still lame though.

Read this manga when you're in the mood for tragedy and slice of life, because this manga definitely falls more into the Thomas Hardy high-art category than it does romance shojo. The art is incredibly beautiful. Not only are the settings well drawn - the shadows, layering, and angles all add to the disconcerting yet heartfelt mood of the manhwa. The story is skillfully crafted. I did not find this manga gratuitous or "craving satisfying" but it is something you will really enjoy.

Excellent Manhwa

Obviously if you managed to make it onto this page, you were probably either recommended this by an acquaintance or you searched the tags and came up with this.

Note that this is in fact a 'real' incest manga- the two are not half-siblings or anything of the sort. They are blood twins, which I find refreshing more than disgusting, personally. I hate it when mangaka try to get around the taboo subject of incest by saying, "Oh, but they aren't REALLY brother and sister!"

The story, without going into too much detail, begins with a scene that most of us accept without question- the boy is normal and looking for love, while his sister is clingy and manipulative. Over time, Se-Joon's girlfriend is introduced, along with a 'childhood friend' character who begins to try to date Se-Wa after she huffily begins to try to make Se-Joon jealous. Over time, the picture we once took for granted is slowly twisted and inverted until barely recognizable. This manhwa is definitely not straightforward, but it pictures the relationships between the twins and their prospective lovers [as what I would imagine would be] fairly realistic, given the characters.

If you are uptight and immediately turned-off by the tags and this description, then by all means read a different shoujo series or something. This definitely isn't for everyone.

the manwha was really beatuiful. the art, the characters, the story, they completly captured me. But i wouldn´t recommend this manga to anyone. I regreted that i read it, because i´m now between love and hate for this manwha. It´s great to read for pro-readers, but newbies will most likely be scared away.

Tragic and psychological with incest

If you love love LOOOOOVE tragedy and inner psychotic protagonists, and you don't mind incest, this is something you must BARE TO THE END for NO MATTER WHAT. Tragedy and lunatics aren't even my forte, especially tragedy (love happy stories more), but I still received a strong hit to the heart with this one, a sign that this is a GOOD READ.

It was hard to bear at first because everyone just didn't know what they were doing, presenting the subjects of incest and insanity like two raw fish (it was so blunt, it was annoying). but I trust i was going to get something good at the end, and i did. (good but not necessarily happy lol)

HOWEVER, the main twist: WAY too subtle, but that's more of my opinion.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
It felt like the author was saying "wups, it was all a conspiracy" blaming this guy who suddenly had a major transformation in incentive like 3 chapters back the twist started. Honestly, the start of the twist felt so much like she came up with it on the spot, because the transition was HORRIBLE. i won't say i hated the end it brought though because it was awesome, but the twist just wasn't placed as well as it could have, where i had to act stupid and ignore it to enjoy the ending.
loved the twist for Sung-chan though: perfect timing and spectacular irony.

All in all, give this a try, ESPECIALLY if you love tragic romances and people who go inner psychotic for love (which would mean great twists~ xD).
