Joonha is a normal, healthy boy of sixteen who has cruised through life without too many problems.
Imagine his surprise when a recent trip to the bathroom suddenly reveals that he's not normal at all! With a shriek of "Oh, my Gosh!!!," he finds himself missing, well, something he never thought he could live without. The impact is too much for poor Joonha and he soon passes out.
While in his half-conscious state, he overhears the incredible truth: his family is abnormal in the weirdest possible way. After puberty, their chromosomes undergo some kind of mutation, which converts their bodies into the opposite sex! Which means his father is really a woman who has been living as a man since the gene change took place. Now Joonha has to leave behind 16 years of life as a man and live as a woman. What will his childhood friend Jinhoo and the girl he has always liked, Heewon, say when they find out?!

I seriously don't get why no one liked the ending. I thought it was great. I hate how the readers always seem to get what they want. It's so damn unrealistic yet that's always what everyone wants. People complain about unoriginality and then they go and complain when something is original/not typical/not expected. And the least popular character is actually my favorite. He's just too cool. XP
I have to agree w/ some of the comments posted previously. The story is amazing. It's interesting to see the change in the character, but what really stuck to me and impressed me was the pain in leaving his best friend.
I knew he wasn't going to end up w/ the violent chick. I started hoping she wouldn't go for the smart/rich/loving guy because her old friend had such attraction. It killed me when I thought that the pianist would leave and the girl wouldn't follow.
But got most definetely dissapointed about the ending... pissed me off. If it would go away, or be rewritten, I would give a 10++++++++++++++++++++++++++++.
i like the beginning with the childhood friend.. i dislike the fact that she ended up with someone i didnt like.. i like the childhood friend better.....=.=..... after vol 8.1...the story is just boring...
PLEASE SPOIL YOURSELF FIRST!
This manhwa will possibly put your heart through a blender if you don't spoil yourself first! I'm glad I knew who Joonha was going to end up with before I read the story because then I didn't let myself get too attached to any other possibility.
That said, this is an excellent gender bender. Joonha starts off as an arrogant, sexist man who believes all women should be meek housewives. He toys around with Heewon's feelings after she confesses to him (saying it's "unattractive" for a woman to confess), even though he really likes her too. When "he" changes to a "she", he freaks out and says something like: "I can't believe I have to give up all my ambitions and be a housewife now!" However, she eventually realizes that her sex isn't a limitation, she can still act "manly", and even as a woman, she can be ambitious.
Just to clarify for everyone who gets confused: Joonha is the main character. Jinhoo is his male childhood friend. Taehyun is the man Joonha meets after she changes sex. Heewon is the girl whom Joonha loved before she changed sex. Then, there's some girlfriend or whatever of Jinhoo called Hyewoon or whaaatever.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
HOW DOES JINHOO NOT END UP WITH JOONHA?!
Okay, you know that's what most people are wondering. I know it's practical for Taehyun to be with Joonha because he understands her ambitions and can her become the business tycoon she aspires to be, but he pales in comparison to Jinhoo for sure.
But what bugs me most is that Jinhoo really got the short end of the straw--he seriously is going to marry someone he realized he didn't love? He got back together with Hyewoon out of pity when her family suddenly died (so contrived, ugh) and he's just going to resign himself to marrying her?
There was no indication that he fell in love with her (ESPECIALLY when he tried to chase who he thought was Joonha through a crowd just the night before he proposed), just that he was sorry that he kept her "waiting". More like, "Hey, I'm still totally in love with my best friend but I still feel sorry for you so I'll marry you instead." Um, if you don't love her, you have NO obligation to be with her, no matter how bad you feel for her. I can't believe the mangaka could make him do such a stupid thing--it was like she couldn't think of a legitimate reason why Joonha and Jinhoo shouldn't be together, so she quickly made up a lame ending.
Also, what was up with Heewon and Taehyun's friend? For ABSOLUTELY NO REASON Taehyun's friend starts following her around, ditching his business ventures and future ambitions just to get ordered around by her! There's no reason why he fell in love with her, since she was only ever mean (seriously mean, not I-secretly-like-you mean) to him. He even leaves the country for her, what a stupid minor plot.
I felt that the way the manhwaga showed how love transcends gender was really well done. Heewon still can't stop loving Joonha even though she's now a woman and Jinhoo falls in love with Joonha even though he believes she's a man. Even Taehyun says that if Joonha was a man, he'd still love her and be gay.
In the end, my heart still goes to the pairing that doesn't happen (made worse by the fact that they said they'd never see each other again--what's up with that?!). I was satisfied from a practical point of view by the ending, but not emotionally. When two people say to each other things like "You're the other half of me" and "I'll never find another person like you ever again" and "I love you beyond gender" but STILL don't end up together, it's got to break your heart a litte. Unfortunately, in real life, you don't always end up with the one you love the most.

Hm, so so...
To tell the truth, I DON"T like the guy called by brid [the popular character] at all. He is just too plain to me, much less cool than the (called by brid) intended char. But there's some problem with the romantic development here: the intended char should have had more lines in the relationship stage; otherwise the ending will seem unatural.
Yoy rip what you sow, I guess (Is that how this is said?? - sooo sleeppyyy...)
I got really frustrated by this series. Althought it kind of made me laugh, the story has too much sad feelings going on wild, and nobody ever gets happy nor what they want (most of the time, they can't live without the central boy/girl Joonha). The triangles separation were all soo without meaning, and with such a rush & sudden, it seemed like the author was crazy about getting to the end. By the way, I think the ending was lame. I was hoping for something more all the time (I think the characters deserved more then that), and when I saw what it ended up like, I thought: "why did I waste my time on this??" Yes, it was like that. And, as a result, I refuse to rate it.

Cliche shoujo at its best
This series has everything you can expect of a shoujo. Love triangles (yes, in plural), bishoujos/bishounen and wacky characters. Despite having exactly what one expects it doesn't get old.
The small differences is what makes this manga alluring. I find it hard to define them though, the tears and anguish are perhaps what makes it live. The build up and then the crashes.
It doesn't have everything needed to truly shine, but it is well worth the time reading it.
Lite Gender Bending
I'm going to be the only odd one out and like the ending pairing. The pairing that everyone wanted just wasn't meant to be(there's a lovely scene in the last chapter that points this out). After Candy Candy, nothing can compare to how bogus how that pairing ended. It was odd because I thought that pairing was what everyone was complaining about.. but it wasn't. ill fated love hits everyone's heart strings. Boy 1 and Boy 2 were equal my eyes, and Boy 1 was simply knocked out of running by events out of his control. I think the main character might have chosen Boy 2 anyway, because the pianist wife comment is true, and she would have kept after Boy 2 to learn...
I wish there was some resolution for Jihan though.
Click doesn't hit any heart strings like Candy Candy or Kimi Ga but it's sort of a lite version of romance(Hot Blooded Woman type sorta) mixed with the above mentioned. Good read when you're bored but nothing that you have to read.

I had previously loved the series, but the ending does really blow. It just seems really thrown together, with very unreasonable seperation methods in use. I had liked all the characters, really, so I was severly disappointed. (I didn't want her to end up with that person, because I didn't feel that was where it was naturally heading. By the way of the last chapter, it felt like process of elimination. She stayed with that person because noone else was left.)
up till vol 7 everything was so good...then why oh why must it end the way it ended the ending has ruined everything....it was so lame;( i used to give click a 10 but now i changed it to a 6..
