Max is the tall debonair foreigner, in Korea on business, with more--much more--to his background than he lets on. On the surface, it would seem as though Jay and J. have nothing in common... until a chance encounter in a hotel lobby sparks a mysterious attraction. Will true love prove strong enough to overcome the language barrier, not to mention the thousands of miles separating two attractive people? Then there are the interventions of friends and family who think they know best... as well as a disastrous encounter with spicy chicken kebab!

well, I'm halfway through this series and I need to say one thing...there's too much! There needs to be a lull or a short relaxing period (anything!); Jay is constantly in one seriously insane situation one after another.
I'm not fond of the fact that Wann makes all her guy "protagonists" to be rich, handsome, totally out of reach of normal people, fall in love in 3 seconds, and totally psychotic...but for some reason, I keep reading (and enjoying) her works...
If you want to see good artwork, then I give this manhwa 9.5/10.
If you want a rating for the actual story, I give it 9/10 if you ONLY read volumes 1-3 and 11 (which are the only parts I recommend you read).
If you read all the volumes, I'd have to give the story a 1/10. The author is constantly trying to drag out the series with constant kidnappings, attempted rapes and dramatic fluff. It's worse than any soap opera you'll ever see. It actually gets quite depressing at times too.
This manhwa was very nice at the beginning and had really good potential. I just wish the author had only published volumes 1-3 and 11 and skipped everything in the middle... it would have been really great.
The best thing about this manhwa was the drama, that's also it's downfall because sometimes there's way too much of it! It's also somewhat unrealistic how all these guys were willing to die for her but perhaps it's because of how pretty, fragile and innocent the main girl is.
It's definitely worth a try if you're a fan of the crazy emotional roller coaster shoujos.
Sorry, but I like it...
I read some comments belows me and I though you guys does have some points in your opinion. It's in fact really unrealistic and the developement are unnatural! But, it is manhwa, not real life story. You don't expected to find much real life manga that are true to life; if so, it would be too boring and you wouldnt be reading it. I like the soapiness of this manhwa and personally I think it's great. Depend on yours taste, I am not saying my opinion is correct or perfect.
waste of time
I started out liking this manga. Initially the story was interesting and the art is great. The author then decided to introduce a "rival" to shake things up. Ok, no problem. However the rivals/psychos kept on popping up! All of them falling in love with Jay and attempting to show how much by attempting to rape her, with her being soooo understanding of their actions! Craziness!That began to sound it's death toll for me. I stopped reading it a few volumes backs but decided to read vol 9 to see if things had changed. It didn't. I'm not going to waste my time any more on what has become a very distasteful manga.
Well, it's Wann.
Wann draws the most beautiful cliche plots I've ever read. And I love it. At times, though, I think that there should be a 'harem' tag to this, because just about every male in the series falls for her at some point, but it's good in its own drama-filled fairy tale way.
Also, have I mentioned that the art is good? I love Wann's art. Gorgeous.
The first few volumes were very cute, the innocent romance, without any great obsession between them. Jarte at first is a nice, thoughtful, boy head over heels type of guy. Even though he had alot of experiences with woman, he went slow on Jay. Later, he became a jealous, scary, psycho, obsessed freak. And Jay changed from the sweet, innocent, want to catch her dreams, strong willed girl to a weak, fraglie creature due to rape, trauma and bloody events. Even though all these unfortuanted events happened, there was something that still captures me, I guess it was their romance, their romance captured me, the bitter, obsessed, overwhelming romance captured me, so that I felt the pain when Jarte and Jay aren't together. Jarte was never experience love, he became obsessed and due to what happened to his dad, he became even more obsessed, it takes him a long time to get over that. This manga is really touching, scary, dramatic and overwhelming but it captured my attention that makes me reread tthe tragic events and the happy events over and over again

WELL.The mangas art is fantastic.The same pouty lips from Wann,as always.BUT.This manga wasn't as impressive as the art.It was good at first,but come on,seriously,going ahead of time so fast wasn't really what i expected from this.So all i want is that the characters get their act together, and all in all,it'll be good.And please Wann,don't be too fast on the story.But.! On the good side,she makes some hilarious stuff.Like choking or not being able to breath because of chicken kebab? Priceless.ahaha
100% Perfect Soap
The first couple volumes of this series were great. The characters were interesting, the plot was sweet (if not too terribly original), and the art was (and still is) incredibly beautiful. However, things change quickly and the story quickly degrades into what feels like a money-making operation rather than a naturally flowing story.
Don't let the add copy fool you. This series becomes pure soap. If you're looking for a light hearted, modern-day Cinderella tale, look elsewhere. It's artificially angst-ridden and not very original, but it will fill your misery meter to the brim. It's "All My Children", international-style. Kidnappings (yes that's right, multiple kidnappings of the same person), rape, murder, espionage, stalking, obsession, suicide, abuse, organized crime, assassins, sex, amnesia, and secret half-siblings bent on revenge fill the pages of "Perfect Girl".The story line goes from merely unbelievable to ridiculous around volume 4, and steadily becomes more and more ridiculous as the series progresses way past its peak. Though we are told that Jay is "average" every other chapter, she winds up with a harem of mentally unstable men who destroy themselves for her in bizarre and unrealistic ways. The harem itself is not the problem for me; rather it's the way it comes about. Other than Jay's foolish need to treat even the most despotic men with kindness, there is no reason for them to fall so madly in love with her. She becomes the Korean Helen of Troy without real cause. The only real reason that I can come up with is so that the author can cause problems for Jay and Jarte that would never have existed otherwise. The men themselves are suitably tragic, yet two-dimensional characters who are there purely to wreck havock and to eventually be tossed away for dramatic effect.
The main characters quickly degrade in terms of personality and reason. Jay goes from being a sweet, independent kid who has everything going for her to a weak, unfaithful, angst-ridden cry-baby who can do nothing but be kidnapped or nearly raped and who is decent to every man she comes in contact with rather than Jarte, the man she claims to love over and over again. Jarte goes from being an intelligent, strong and seemingly perfect man to a weak-minded, obsessed and jealous abuser whose only desire in life is to possess Jay for himself and treat her as horribly as possible for all the wrongs that she's done to him, real or imagined.
Honestly, I'm upset over what's been done to a promising series. I truly enjoyed volumes 1-3. The introduction of Luigi was the beginning of the end for me. A poster at Net Comics said that she/he felt as though "Perfect Girl" was being drawn out in order to sell more volumes, and I think they may be right. There was no reason whatsoever to drag this series out as long as it has been, and apparently will be for 2 more volumes. All of the artificial misunderstandings and angst has killed this story for me. At this point, I will continue to read the series to see if it has the happy ending that it so terribly needed 3 volumes ago, but I will not be buying it as it comes out in print as I had planned.
If you like pretty pictures, soap operas and drama for drama's sake, read "100% Perfect Girl". If you're looking for something original and upbeat, don't waste your time with this one.

It Wasn't So Great.
Wow. Am I reading the same manhwa as the rest of you are?
I'm not feeling very impressed with this manhwa. The covers look beautiful/great/lovely and all, but I was really disappointed with the content. It's the most unbelievably annoyingly unrealistic slice-of-life I've ever encountered.
Well, I won't go on and explain the plot, but anyway, it's got a prince and an average girl. They meet. They love. Drama ensues.
Great, just great. But uh, not very interesting, after a while. I don't think I want to see anymore of this. If I want a good manhwa with a hot prince and an average(but cute and funny) girl, I think I'll go with Goong.
