Getting over an inferiority complex   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

Contrary to the previous reviewer, I actually really enjoy this webtoon and don't see the issues she is complaining about. I recommend you to give it a chance.

Yes, Nari is surrounded by a group of beautiful girls, but that's all there is to it. Each of the girls in the group seemingly come together because they can't fit in anywhere else. Their friendship is real and not superficial. They have Nari's back when the other kids try to bully or spread rumours about her (even when Nari is completely oblivious to it). Forget that they're beautiful, as that is all there is on the exterior. Personality wise, the girls gravitate towards Nari because Nari accepts who them for who they are and doesn't judge them based on rumours she overhears. Time and time again, it is reinforced that these girls aren't interested in gaining anything from Nari. They are friends with her because they genuinely enjoy her company. Whereas for Nari, all she can focus on is that she is not pretty enough in comparison.

Actually, Nari does defend herself. There is a lot of sarcastic and dry humour from Nari's part, and I found myself laughing along with her. Especially her interactions between her and her brother, she does put him down to the extent that he does her but clearly it's all playful and it's quite a common sibling dynamic. I can understand and relate to the behaviour of the characters in this webtoon because my friends, boyfriend and i are the same. We make fun of each other, laugh at each other and just plain sometimes be rude to each other. But it's all in good humour and not meant to be malicious. It's the kind of relationship that outsiders don't understand unless they're actually a part of the circle. Although I did found Yoona's behaviour towards Nari a bit much when they were younger, but its very clear and reinforced that Yoona looks out for Nari and cares for her very much.

Yoona, in a nutshell is a yandere for Nari. She cares for Nari a lot but doesn't verbally express it. Instead she looks out for Nari when the Nari's classmates are trying to bully her. Or she would use her looks to encourage guys to buy the baked goods from Nari's family's bakery because she knows Nari's father is struggling to sell.

I like Nari. She's sarcastic, levelheaded and doesn't get butthurt. Although her self-confident issues and inferiority complex can get a little annoying, but I can tell that the point of this webtoon is to develop Nari and for her to get over that. Nari's insistent that she is a normie and unattractive just because she's surrounded by beautiful girls can get a little annoying. Time and time again, the girls (and other people) honestly tell Nari that she's pretty and wonderful. But Nari shrugs it off and can only see her flaws instead. These are the type of girls who will not abandon Nari to rumours or boys. It feels like Nari is the one who would abandon them instead over something trivial.

Comedic abuse - idk how this is supposed to be a cute tale of friendship   
Rating: 4.0 / 10.0

All reading this did was raise my blood pressure. Got up to chapter 10, but decided to just stop because most of the characters were irritating me.

Yoona is pushy, and selfish. And her actions are basically just bullying. What kind of friend forces someone to give them shoulder massages and fan them when it's hot?? That's basically just a master-servant relationship, especially with the way she habitually ignores Nari's discomfort and stress.

Her squirting lotion over Nari's face when she got offended on the way to school was kind of the last straw for me.

I tried reading through chapter 9, just in case I was overreacting, but... here are some things Yoona does to Nari because she's angry Nari had the balls to tell her she was being rude to another girl:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)

- tapes an insult onto her back
- hands her a shaken can of soda that explodes in Nari's face
- gives her a handkerchief to wipe off her face that has ink on it
- ties her clothes together
- takes her seat out from under her
-etc


I....is this supposed to be cute? She's wearing Nari down and bombarding her with small abuses. That's not cool.

I dislike when authors put the onus of patience and empathy on the main character. It's apparently Nari's responsibility to constantly do the emotional labor and work to understand Yoona, while Yoona just does whatever she wants, expecting to be forgiven.

And she is forgiven. Nari ends up apologizing because she "slighted" Yoona. No apology from Yoona.

Meanwhile, her other friends constantly make little remarks that belittle and hurt Nari, but that's okay because they were just teasing. And her brother is an a**hole, but I guess that's supposed to be a normal sibling relationship?? (I mean, if my sibling constantly called me ugly and a fat pig, we'd probably have some serious issues.)

To make everything worse, Nari just. Doesn't stand up for herself. She only gets drawn being comedically offended.

Idk, maybe all this is okay to someone else, but I...I'm going to pass.
