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.
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.
