Wow, this is so far the most intriguing and addicting gender bender I've read out of all manhwa that is. Its has a very promising plot that keeps getting better and better every chapter. I love how the relationship gets tangled up and the characters are so distinct from each other.A big plus is the gorgeous art which is very consistent and proportional. I hope it'll be a long series.

Well this kind of artwork makes me confuse to differ one character after another. So I suggest you all to read them all at once, like me biggrin .
I finished ch 1-12 today and I can say the story is great, besides the character artwork, the author tell each character story and personality really perfect, remind me of one of Ikeda Riyoko's work, Orpheus no Mado. And I can say the story is strong.
Each chapter makes me *gasp* What will happen? what will happen? And now I really want to read the continuation. So please release it faster.....

Artwork is great absolutely superb. The plot sort of lacks direction, especially for the main character Gabriel, I just don't get wat she is trying to achieve. Wat her goal is? However the actions by all the characters seem so realistic and the environemnt shown is actually as the title says quite savage really. Wat is unique about dis manga, is that you can never tell wat is going to happen next? Each character has so many motives and their feelings for eachother are quite confusing which makez me even more curious to read the next chapter to find out more. There is really no bad or good character here, even the main character Gabriel is flawed and dis makez dis manwha soo much more interesting So many mysteries here, dat are revealed quite slowly but at a pace that doesn't make me lose interest. Dis manwha is quite dark and really after 13 chapters have gone by, the chances of dis manwha having a good/happy ending is quite low which makez me sad. This mangakaz other two workz Flower of evil and fascination better than love did not have a happy ending either. Hopefully dis one will though doesn't seem likely. However dis one is just gettn started so a long way to go. Thankz for scanlating dis awesome manwha guyz!!

I'm sorry to say this piece by Lee Hyeon-Sook disappointed me. The first chapter was interesting, but the story moved a bit slow..that, and all the characters look similar. It's difficult to tell them apart. I still don't get what the purpose of the story is and whatever it is, it doesn't seem like she (the lead) is moving anywhere toward the goal.

I'll keep reading it for the art, but I'm not seeing much of the romance/drama/tragedy this manhwa is categorized under.

This story is so so so so wonderful smile I could not stop reading it once I started and honestly I got more then I expected. And yes I know the art is oh so beautiful but it's the story that got me really hooked and the art just added to it! My god, the storyline is so good. I love how this reflects around a meaning, like jealousy. Read it if you haven't yet! Don't miss it now..

A Good Gender Bender Manhwa

I rarely love gender bender genre except for Orpheus no Mado (still the best one for me) and this one (coincidentally, they both tell the story about a girl in an all-boys private school for nobles). As usual from this manhwaga, the art is great and the story is good as well. I highly recommend this.

the art and storytelling reminds me a bit of Midorikawa Yuki's work and a bit of Bride of the Water God. The art is sort of sketch-like and the storytelling exudes a dreamlike atmosphere and is a bit dark and mysterious. And unlike other gender benders, the heroine's reason for impersonating her friend, Jeremy, is sad and dark. She is an introvert rather than an extrovert and has strong principles of what is right and noble and what is wrong. She isn't there to change things and make everything wonderful and good, but rather she is just trying to survive the dark underbelly of nobility.

Interesting story. Though nothing much has been revealed [which kind of annoys me], this manga kept me intruiged during the time I was reading it, and I wish to read more.Everyone has already mentioned, but I also want to compliment the art.So beautiful *o*.

There's multiple reasons I like this story. Like other korean mangas, many characters look similar (with the exception of the hairstyle), but this manga simplifies the characters such that I only had trouble with two... and that trouble was rectified quite quickly. The story in the beginning is a tad confusing, but it was quite nicely clarified in chapter 5. Overall, I really like the art and where the story is going. It is quite refreshing to have main characters like Gabriel. Her conflict of emotions together with her personality make her a very good main character. I would give this a most definite read.


Just finished reading ch26 and I am crying, and cursing to the skies that the story is still ongoing in Korea... that is a crime because I must read the story NOW. It is so bittersweet with tragedy, romance and drama dome so amazingly well, that I am speechless for words. This is simply amazingly done. Not many comics around the world are of this caliber and so expertly executed. Though some things may be cliched, the idea will not even pop into your head. There is no time for this story to be typical. In short, it takes all you've ever known, and executed it perfectly. It is a perfect story with no fault whatsoever in plot, characters, art, anything. It is perfection.

It is the kind of manga/manhwa where as soon as you finish, you start looking for the author's other works and you read them whether they look interesting or not because you know you've found a gem. OMG... why the hell is there such crap out there regarding manga and manhwa when such amazing talent exists? It only makes me depressed to know there is such little phenomenal talent to be experienced. I don't care to remember artists, but I am memorizing her name.

The best thing about the manga is that it is a very unique gender bender. What makes it unique is that 1) It isn't cheesy 2) She isn't immediately figured out (from what I remember) 3) She HAS a reason to be there (and it isn't something stupid) 4) It's set at a boy's boarding school...and things start to happen XD .Though the best part is that she's sadly included in the action wink
