Not bad

I actually liked this. There was a lot of drama, but honestly it mostly felt like realistic relationship drama. Maybe it's hard to relate to for those who haven't had any/many relationships, but it genuinely felt relatable. Way more relatable than I expected a story about vampires to be.

Of course the MC was creating his own problems. That's what people do. If no one ever created problems, then every relationship would be perfect forever. That isn't real life and it's not super enjoyable to read either. In the end, they grew up a little and learned how to be more open and to support each other.

This will be a rant comment. There is no need for you dear reader to take my comment at face value.

Which certainly means not to take other comments seriously either.

I don't understand the negative comments.
I think it was pretty obvious the webtoon would take this route.
I don't get why everybody hates it? I think the execution was good. There was enough foreshadowing, and their actions were very understandable.
It isn't that melodramatic as most of the shit that everybody seems to love so much. I was expecting some shitty, terribly written webtoon, but I think it was actually good enough.

And this thing about "saving himself" and shit?? Everybody is going on about how cliche it was, but him getting into an affair like this was actually a refreshing twist. He was going through an emotional instability, and there was this "reliable" dude next to him who seduced and manipulated him. He is human, what do you expect?? He was jealous of Sam, and also deeply scarred from getting used like this as a child. I agree it was melodramatic and annoying at times, but definitely not as terrible as everybody claims it to be lol.

Pretty sure most of those people would enjoy having Geyom raped by Sam cuz, hey at least his first would be Sam, amirite?

Also, he is a girl cuz he cry? How sexist is that?

...but it actually sucked because the source material was bad. The original idea was cute and could have been perfect for a cheesy slice-of-life. But the author decided to throw in some unecessary drama while also turning the MC into the most annoying, retarded, whiny primadonna ever. Fortunately Bat Boy (sorry, not good with names) and his family kept the webtoon afloat. Kind of. They were all enjoyable characters and made me cringe a little less while reading Raising a Bat (which, by the way, is a very cute title).

I guess I should at least point out the things that didn't work but it would be an endless list. I can try, though (mild spoilers ahead, which IMO you can safely read):
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
- A clichèd shoujo girl was disguised as MC. I know guys can be feminine and I have no issue with it, but honestly apart from the first chapters MC never even once looked like a guy to me. I'm actually surprised he didn't grow tits and a subscription to Cosmopolitan by the end of the comic.
- Said MC made awful, brainless, plainly stupid choices. Like, Bat Boy confessed he cared about him. But just because he said "friend" once, MC decided to reject him and have sex with the first person he found.
- The first person he found was Artsy Boy (I know I know, sorry about the names). IMO he wasn't as bad as others described him, but he could have been developed better. His motives got explained but the reader couldn't feel them. I appreciated the author trying to develop his background story with MC Doppelganger Girl... but she failed. Artsy Boy and Doppelganger Girl were so in love... but she decided to fly to another country for two years and when she got back she was expecting him to be loyal? After losing contact for that long? Girl you're not a Junjou Egoist protagonist, so stop dreaming.
- What about the attempted suicide? It was hilarious. And they kept bringing it up just so that everyone could feel cringey- ehm, sorry for MC again and again.
- The whole "let's adopt our vampire son's boyfriend" was straight out awkward. Awkward to the max.
- Artsy Boy's little tricks and MC's over dramatic reactions made the whole thing look like a Spanish telenovela. I'm surprised nobody came out of nowhere shouting "Que haces besando a la lisiada!".
- Where does Bat Boy keep his wings??
- I can accept Bat Boy being a vampire. I can accept not having a hint of information on why vampires exist in this world. But I can't accept MC having "too much blood". Like, what the **** does it even mean?
- About MC's father... I don't know where to start. Why was he taking MC's blood? Why did he dislike MC so much? He was a super clever doctor who just couldn't get that if his wife died it wasn't his son's fault? (I mean, MC didn't choose to be the main character...)
- I still have goose bumps from the scene where Bat Boy and Easygoing Friend almost kissed because Bat Boy wanted to practice. H e l p.
- The sex scene was totally heartless and I couldn't feel anything at all. I had the impression the author didn't know how to manage this part of the story.

Okay that's it. Now go read it because Bat Boy is a cutie.

Yeah... It was great and all but it honestly got boring after the first few chapters that I considered dropped it but I stayed for the fact that I expected some background on various things and still left with nothing like that.

This webtoon was fluffy while it lasted (and thank goodness for the colors and style) but it felt all rushed.

Like the commenters, I liked the first few chapters of this webcomic. I felt for the MC and everything. But then everything started to take a turn. I felt like I was reading one of those shojo manga with incredibly stupid characters. The drama in the middle was so stupid and pointless. I can't even root for the main couple properly anymore because I strongly dislike the MC by this point. Or 'hate' might be a better word. He creates his own problems (in the romance aspect at least) but the love interest is the one comforting and reassuring him? What? Are the readers meant to feel sympathy for him or something? Honestly I dislike the MC even more than I do the coworker.
Just...if you can live with the protagonist pissing you off, then you can probably read this. I'm going to go look for a romance that doesn't make me want to shoot something.

Could be better

Unlike the majority of the comments, I did not feel that bothered about Min Gyeom x the co-worker. I did not like Min as a character really. However, I felt that the whole "melodrama" with the co-worker could be avoided if Min Gyeom and Chun Sam had freaking communicated. Nevertheless, if that whole plot-intrigue didn't happen the manhwa/webtoon would be like 15 chapters lol. In the end, all stories need a good antagonist/plot-twisty person.

I would like to mention things I missed to make this manhwa above average:
- more explanation about the whole vampire race. Are there other vampires than Chun Sam? Where? How? Why? etc etc.
- more background on Min's father. He was an ass, a huge one, but his background story was too shallow for me to understand where his actions were coming from. The whole mom thing didn't convince me, especially since they mention in the beginning of the story that Min was born "as a mistake"?
- One whole chapter where Min didn't cry.

Oh and also it felt dragged out towards the ending. Could've easily ended at like 35-40 chapters or so.

I Have Never Hated A Character More

I agree completely with @liontaraki's review. I really liked Min Gyeom and Chun Sam together in the beginning. Min Gyeom had a few things he needed to sort out but I was hoping he'd do that with Chun Sam by his side, even as friends.

Then they introduced the interloper. This guy. He's the main source of all the heartache in this webtoon. He annoyed me from the onset because I knew what his plot purpose was but he was even worse than I had imagined. The whole coworker escapade tore my heart to shreds, especially for poor Chun Sam. Worse yet, it made me begin to straight up loathe the main character.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I will never be able to understand someone who acts like they're so in love with another person, but at the slightest bump in the relationship they go and fuck someone else. Within, like, four hours in this instance.

It got to the point where I really just want Chun Sam to move on from Min Gyeom. I know he is the way he is because of his childhood, but that shouldn't be used as an excuse to act like he does. He used to evoke sympathy in me, now, I couldn't care less. He's a dick to Chun Sam. Plain and simple.

I actually had to do some self evaluating after thinking 'you deserve it' when Min Gyeom's world was falling apart. (¯―¯٥)

If they had never introduced the coworker or if Min Gyeom wasn't so receptive to his advances, I would have loved this webtoon. Because, it is a good story (excluding the douchenozzle) and highly addictive even with its flaws so I can only imagine how good it'd be an intruding asshole short.

If you decide to read this prepare for major feels and possible ugly crying. As for me, after skipping from chapter 40 to 77 and seeing the same old bs from Min Gyeom and not being lost (they're having the same arguments repeatedly), I'm out.

So much potential. (╥_╥)

I'm only about 15 chapters in, but so far it's adorable but rather slow-paced. I feel like the author is feeling their way along kind of at the same pace as the story sometimes. However, the story has some unique elements that make it interesting and I can tell there is huge potential for the series. I just hope it doesn't get mired down too much in a character being afraid to confess or a character laboring under a misunderstanding, which is fine if it's brief but agonizing for the reader if it goes on too long.

It's hilariously adorable but also stupid. Were we all that stupid at 19 years old? They are an adorable couple who deserves to be happy but somehow things always get in the way, and of course they make it difficult for themselves as well. Only complaint I have is that after the climax it's pretty boring before it gets to the side chapters. Even then it's a give and take with some good and some bad chapters. Overall, it's a great series!

I honestly read all the chapters released so far in one go. I was very intrigued to see what happens next.

I'd be much more pleased, though:
a) if Chun Sam was the first man Min Gyeom had slept with,
b) if Min Gyeom hadn't trusted his coworker and told him his story at that time and
c) if his coworker hadn't succeeded in seperating these 2 then
but instead was hit by a flaming truck a couple of chapters after he was introduced to the story.

I also hate the fact that Min Gyeom was traumatized so much by his coworker and had almost killed himself because of him. I've noticed that Min Gyeom isn't that much invested in Chun Sam and he was very cautious and wary of him even after they made up but he trusted his coworker like it was the most natural thing to do from the get-go.

Basically, the romance of the main couple took a long detour until it was fully developed and I found that unnecessary. It made people question the protagonists' feelings for each other and the way they handled many situations made it seem like they didn't like each other that much...

What should be noted, though is that out of this manhwa we get to see that the only people that treated Min Gyeom properly were not actually humans, showing that you can't actually tell who the real monsters are...
