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.
At least I'll get to laugh a little on the way.
I find it scary how I haven't dropped this series yet.. but. I have a reason to keep continuing. I want to know what will happen to them in the end (the couple I mean). So far in the story, the Prince is being a horrible HORRIBLE ass, it's true. It's somewhere getting along the line 'scary' with all of his threats to her. And I find it very sad how she still loves him but does he really love her as he did before? It gives me the chills reading this, but I do have to admit throughout the drama, this series gets etched in your mind somewhere.
I really enjoy angsty romance manga, and so 100% Perfect Girl was a good match for me. This definitely isn't a fluff, there is a ton of drama and twists in the plot. Some of which are highly unrealistic and a bit cheesy, but overall I really liked this manga, and I plan on reading the updates in the future.
The mind boggling puzzle for me was how the HELL did she make all those guys go GA GA over her I mean is it cuz she looks vulnerable, already taken, or what Anyways this unrealistic golden touch with men was the only thing that irked me. But besides that I LOVED IT!!! I know some might not like it but i found the drama tantalizing. Also the artwork is just so beautiful that you are drawn in so easily!!!
The start of it was great. I looked forward to the updates. But then it became way too fake and too many cliches. How does every guy she meets fall in love with her. Isn't it explained in the story shes just an average girl? Plus, even though she started out a strong character, she spiraled down to a very annoying weak one. And now this story worse off then those cliched ones because it just keeps dragging on with Jay torturing the prince, doing things that continuously hurt him. Both of them changed and for the worse. Its both of theirs fault, but maybe more likely Jay's. A good story that turned bad.
Dear lord make it end
Ok, so i started out really into this, like so many others. There was a little conflict, she wasn't sure how she felt, blah blah blah. But by the time we get to the 3rd, fourth, fifth, I have no idea how many, actually, kidnapping/other man going postal over her I couldn't read another page. SOmeone tell me how it ends when it's done.
see, for me.. its not typical to find the main guy to fall in love first than the girl, for me that was a big plus... even if he is a king, prince w/e he wanst that kind of spolied lill brat, he was cute and sweet, the main girl WAS ok... the story was nice but everything goes down when the drama starts! at first with all that happend to her.... i was oh well.. poor her.. por him.. after that oh cool love triangle.. and more... but this manga CAN'T BE MORE EMO CZ ITS IMPOSSIBLE! (no offense if u r one) DEPRESSING, ANNOYING!!! that girl gets on my nerves!!!!!!!!! there is a part where i said
Spoiler (highlight to view)
shees she only needs to try to commit suicide.. guess what happend? XDD
and not just that, she says
Spoiler (highlight to view)
she is not with him anymore but she spends his money traveling cz she is tired or frustrated
WTH COME ON WOMAN !!!! thanks to Her the guy's life is hell as u can see i couldnt take it anymore... it was the first time i added a manga to my unfinish list =)

it was good...in the beginning.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
The manhwa started off well, not that cliched, except for rich guy falls for normal girl part, but it was okay. (considering that most shoujo mangas are cliched) The relationship was good, and I liked that she didn't immediately fall in love and do cooey lovey dovey things. Then she got kidnapped by Luigi and blah blah, they fell in love, which is a cliche. And then she came back, got *ahem*ed by Jarte forcefully, but she ends up not holding a grudge. And let's not mention the fact that every bloody guy in the story falls in love with her. I mean, Ewen is supposed the villain here! He's supposed to kill her, not fall in love with her. I really did not like that part. Not to mention the fact that Jay and Jarte break up and they get all unhappy, while knowing they 'can't be together'. Like everyone else, I think this manhwa is full of cliches, but is okay to read. As long as you don't get too pissed off at her harem, and you actually like it when they don't end happily ever after. I like happy endings, so I don' think I'll be reading this anymore.
