OK so i just finished the last chapter and I am wholly disappointed!!!! Everything was so slow and then BAM all this action happened in the end in super fast mode. It's like the mangaka did not have any more time and felt she just had to kill everyone off for a quick and easy ending. UGGGHHH there was no resolution nor punishment for any of the bad deeds that were done by the character. The only saving grace is the artwork, if that :/

This is going to be more of a review and my analysis then a comment.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
The story starts off as if Se-Wa is the crazy one in love with her brother, when actually it's really her brother, Se-Joon, who is obsessed.

We find out that his obsessive love started when they were children, when Se-Wa was seperated from Se-Joon for the first time because of her heart transplant. It was then that he realized how much he loved. So, he kept her isolated from everyone by spreading rumors about her and doesn't help her when she's bullied because he wants her to feel like she only has him by her side, which he does so successfully.

Se-Wa becomes totally dependent on her brother's love, since she has no one else. She grows attached to him and constantly seeks his love. In a sense, Se-Joon completed what he desired, which was to have Se-Wa's affections just for himself. However, his guilt and his fears of what the world thinks of his love for his sister causes him to push her away as if her affections for him are the cause of his misery. He puts all the blame on his sister, as if she's the one obsessed with him, as if her love for him is suffocating him.

Se-Wa eventually tries to move on from her brother. She finally makes friends with Gi-Hoon, and slowly she falls in love, for the first time, with him. We learn that her love for Se-Joon is nothing more than a child's attachment, seeking for love. However, she doesn't refuse her brother when he tries to sleep with her because she was still confused over her feelings for her brother and what they meant. When she sees Gi-Hoon for the first time after sleeping with her brother, she realizes the difference and her feelings for Gi-Hoon that were developing.

After seeing Se-Wa grow apart from him, Se-Joon realizes what he has done. He becomes possessive again, and starts hurting people who has tried to "dirty" or hurt his sister. As she grows farther and farther away, his desires grow that he even starts to hate his sister and wants to kill her.

Gi-Hoon, who initially wanted revenge, falls in love with Se-Wa, who has his younger sister's heart, which was stolen because of Se-Wa's father. Gi-Hoon soon finds out that Se-Joon slept with Se-Wa. Se-Joon panics and continuously beats Gi-Hoon unconscious with a rock. Thinking that he had killed Gi-Hoon, Se-Joon runs away, bringing Se-Wa with him.

Since Se-Was heart isnt really her own, she constantly has to take her pills. However, because of Se-Joons selfishness and fears for himself. He actually neglects this fact, and Se-Was heart condition worsens and eventually dies.

Gi-Hoon blames Se-Joon, and Se-Joon knows that it was his own fault. He goes to find Se-Was cell phone and gives it to Gi-Hoon, saying that the phone belongs to Gi-Hoon. Gi-Hoon reads Se-Was message to him and cries. I have no idea what it says exactly, since it isnt translated, but its probably I love you or something. Se-Joon believing that he cant live without Se-Wa, commits suicide.

In the end, I think the father got back what he deserved and loss both of his children even though he sacrificed Gi-Hoons sister to save Se-Wa.

/edit/

Also, I'll like to comment on how the story began and ended with the story about the boy who everyone loved and whether you would choose to be loved by everyone or just one person. The boy was like Se-Joon, but even though he said at the end of the manga that he rather by loved by one, his action throughout the manga was contradictory, since he was so afraid of exposing his incestuous relationship, afraid of what "everyone" would have thought. So, to me he choose to be loved by "everyone."

Um, I so do not like incest. Actually, I avoid it like the plague. But this manga has the MOST beautiful artwork ever (I could tell from the cover) so I had to try it out... and it's actually very interesting!! Disturbing, yes, at some parts but interesting. Very very good. I recommend it! (If you can stand the intensely weird/creepy incest-implications)

edit: well it turned out to be one of those mangas that are so addictive in the beginning but sort of get crazy and stupid later... sigh. Se-joon makes me so maad!! And the ending was so pointless. I won't spoil anything here but yeah... it definitely gets super dramatic and complicated later on.

The beautiful artwork really pulled me into their little sibling world, though I always keep wondering if they've had sex. Sometimes I think, "they've definitely done it", but other times I have my doubts.

All in all, an expertly crafted incest story.

I'm not usually into the dark and depressing type manhwas, but I decided to give this a try (the art is very nice bigrazz). I got completely invested in the story; it's so twisted but at the same time I could not stop reading. The whole focus of the story is Se-wa's obsession and manipulation on her brother. The extent of her love for her brother is borderline psychotic.

Definetly a decent story- if you're tired of reading typical light-hearted type stories, I recommend you give this a read.

This manhwa has been my favorite ever since I started reading it. What can you ask for more? Art? Superb. I am sucker for detailed and beautiful art. Story? There might be an incest theme but how it is told is intense and simply gripping you can't put it down or have it on hold.

I love this story so much. I can understand this type of love and I don't really care about the incest part. When you love a person so much is hard to understand any kind of logic. It's hard to describe but when love is this intense you can't control your feelings and behavior.

It could have been great but... It's not. I'm a fan of seinen and romance, the theme of this manhwa is incest (it's serious and can make great story) but the author seem to think that a manga about incest should be like every shoujo, so have a lots of problem due to all the beautifull guy and girl that fall in love, here is the fail, an incest manga should be about a brother and sister love and the problem that come with it, not about the problem of an adolescent boy who can't choose between two girl who he must love.
The character are good but here come the second fail of the author, the brother, i stopped reading because of him, he is totaly useless, he follow the order of his girlfriend and when she's not here he follow his sister's order, too bad since the other character are well made (the sister is awesome i love her).
I stopped reading after the first few volumes and i read a spoiler of the ending (being a fan of incest manga i couldn't miss one of the few because of a bad first impression) and it seem i did well to stop since the end seem pretty stupid.

it's my point of view and people that like drama and shoujo would like it (that's why i didn't give him a so bad rate) but personaly i prefer something more realistic like koi kaze or evergreen, the author should have done a typical shoujo, without the incest part it would have been great too bad she considered it like any other shoujo and forget that the biggest problem here was the incest.

The story is so interesting and I don't care about the incest either. It's just so captivating the plot, also the story seems somewhat "dark" and sad. I loved it and there's nothing else like it. I just finished it too. And I'm pretty sure Se-Wa is a girl people haha.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
the story had a sad ending. not a happy ending. but i still think how they ended it was really good.
