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?

Cheese is complicated. It definitely not a light read. Many would find it too slow since they most likely expect a sweet and light romantic drama, with the focus being on Sul. Jung and In Ho. But no, this story is better than that.

If you are looking for a story that makes you think a little bit, and pay a little bit more attention Cheese is for you. Every named character in this manhwa is important, if you write them and their involvement as fillers you will miss out on a big chunk of the good stuff. They end up playing a bigger role than you think. Also I noticed that people who failed to grasp the difference between the flashbacks and the present tend to get lost really fast...

That being said, Cheese is a great series. Mature, and lacking all the cliches k-dramas and shoujo series have. Most stories have the heroine swooning over the tall, dark and supposedly evil character who will later reveal his sudden attitude change to be due to love for our heroine. But cheese is different. It keeps making you wonder whether the guy is some evil mastermind or really just innocently in love with the main character every other chapter! I really have to hand it to the author, she planned this story out well. This blog gives you a nice preview of what the manga really has to offer check it out~

There were good ideas in this manwha. The main character is an interesting girl, though not very original. The central point is the complete change of behavior of the male lead, and that could have made a great story. Unfortunately, the author seems to lack inspiration and resort on filler chapters with no long-term plan. The 10 first chapters apart, there are more flashbacks than present time panels, and these stories of the past are sometimes contradicting a bit. It makes the story incredibly slow, and IMHO, annoying. For instance, a new character was introduced 6 or 7 chapters ago, and the author claimed it was to be a third main character: as of chapter 32, he only had two very minors scenes.

The art is quite poor (proportion mistakes, no backgrounds, wrong perspectives) but easy to follow. Some panels are really badly drawn, but overall I wasn't put off by the drawings.

I'm dropping this and I wouldn't recommend anyone to even try it: it's a trap, with only a good start and no cheese.

But this web comic was interesting. I'm glad I finally found one that didn't make my eyes bleed and think, "wow, THAT was a waste of my mortality!"

It leaves you wondering what is the deal with the Sunbae, even though you can tell something's up, is he really 'evil' underneath, or is he careless? I don't know, and that's part of what drives me. I also like the main character. Her immediate response and observation of the Sunbae was fun and interesting. Because it's through her observation (for the most part), it's hard to not have big suspicions, but that's what makes it interesting. I'm glad I decided to give it a try.

Ive never really read a webcomic before and i heard this one was good so i tryed it. I love Sul! She is so strong personality wise and spunky! The art is beautiful and i love the story line. Yoo Jung is very mysterious. i want to know more about him and what his deal is. I would reccomend everyone to read this.

It moves too slowly for me

It's well written but it moves too slowly for me but apparently I'm in a minority in that. I find the main female's lack of willingness to be straight forward with people in general irritating, too. For instance, why can't she just tell a guy, "I'm sorry but I can't give her phone number to you. It's not my phone number to be giving out so you're gonna have to get it on your own. If you really like her then make her like you enough to want to give it to you. End of discussion." I don't understand people/characters who are interested in a 'peaceful life'. There's no such thing to be attained. There is no such thing as a life without confrontation. Trying to avoid confrontations, which are an inevitable part of life, only assures a bigger one in the end and will only serve to make your life stressful every single day.

This really opened my eyes to webcomics, it was my first time reading one and it was fabulous! I love how it's not your typical love story where the main characters love each other. The hint of mystery and even sense of uneasiness adds to the integrity of the story. And of course, the main character is a winner - portrayed in all her glory and imperfections.

In addition, the art is amazing and I am left waiting for more. Unfortunately, the author doesn't want any more unauthorised translations (cus she wants to encourage more blog views) and so we are all left in a state of suspension.

All in all, one of the best mangas/manhwas/manhuas/webcomics I have ever read!

Really really good. It's about college students, which I love because I am one, so I can relate. Although, the social atmosphere is quite tense. As a reader, I could feel the pressure the characters were under and I end up analyzing their behavior sometimes. I really like this sort of layout where you don't have to click all the time and you can just scroll down the page. Also, the color is a nice break from the usual black and white. Story and characters are amusing and the comedy is first-rate. Two thumbs up. I hope the translators get on it... Chapters up to 36 are already out.

This comic is really charismatic. The art is unique and pretty, the story is slow but gripping and the characters drive the plot along well.

There are hilarious moments, moments when you think "is she merely paranoid or is he really a 2-face?" and moments where Yoo Jung does something surprising and you think you got a confirmation to Hong Sul's suspicions.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
But be assured that the heroine, while seeming socially a bit inept and paranoid, got him nailed down totally right - he IS a two face, as gets confirmed in Season 2 in his memories of their first few encounters.
