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...

It started off SO good!!!

The beginning of this manhwa was amazing! I'm very picky when it comes to mangas/manhwa, and I was pretty much hooked from chapter 1. I inhaled everything that was available within one sitting, and didn't even notice the time. I was completely captivated.

Around chapter 30, however, this amazing manhwa devolved into convoluted, cliche, retarded korean drama bullsh*t, and broke my heart. The story stopped making sense. The conflict became superficial. The characters started behaving in ways that made me want to tear my hair out, especially Min Gyeom.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
He slept with his sleazy coworker after a night of drinking, and thereafter decided it was too late to go back to Sam, even after Sam explained their previous misunderstanding to him. All this takes place within one day. Is this the feudal era? You accidentally slept with some guy (while drunk), so then you have to be with him for good??? This is so stupid. It tries to be angst, but it's not even good angst because it's so nonsensical and needless. If you understand that it was just a misunderstanding, then go tell your coworker you made a mistake and call it off. Big effing deal. It was only one day, not like you've been dating for years. Why turn down the guy you actually love, and who loves you back for some sleazebag you boned? Why? WHYYY??? There was literally no reason for this.


And the coworker is creepy and sleazy as hell. For some reason, however, we have to sit through long chapters about his backstory with his ex. I guess it's so we can try to understand where he's coming from. No. Just...no. Gross. This is not an interesting side character that readers care about. This is a character that needs to be hit by a truck, mourned for one panel, and then is never mentioned or seen again.

Do I recommend this manhwa? No. As much as I loved the beginning, the stupidity of the latter chapters completely ruins it for me. That makes me angrier than anything. If it was just ok, then I wouldn't care, but it was so good at the beginning! And then became so awful. I will not be finishing this. I end my read at chapter 50. I don't care to find out what happens to these characters thereafter.

I love this manhwa don't get me wrong here, but from the part where Min Gyeom start dating the other guy, it got SUPER cliche and slightly boring. It was a great and beautiful start but suddenly became a love triangleconfused Then some annoying affair?! Awww it ruined it for me. Still, I'm rooting for the main couple but that whole other fiasco wasn't nessaccary. He should have saved himself for the main guy!!! Arghh, irritates me... I almost feel like i just wanna ignore that whole dating thing even happened. But I will say it got slightly interesting again towards the more recent chapters, because "shockingly" they've gotten together (like they should had long time ago) and finally started their relationship. Basically what I'm saying is it started out great, flopped a bit in the middle, and is trying to pick itself up. Other than that the drawing and layout of some parts in the manhwa is creative and beautiful.

Ridiculously good?   
Rating: N/A

Honestly, it's not too ridiculously tropey at all and takes a slice-of-life look at it. I clicked on it and saw the first picture (of Min Gyeom tugging Chun Sam's collar, probably was the credits page), and I thought to myself 'okay, this is gonna be a push-and-pull dynamic I hope', and it really is. It's chalk full of understandable misunderstandings, but the two of them are connected through the whole vampire thing. Min Gyeom has a really upsetting past, honestly, but I honestly relate with how he processes situations, and how he reacts as a result. God, I really love this webcomic? It's a side of really sweet developmental because you can see how much they care about each other (WHICH IS THE THING I DIG THE MOST), but it's also what's keeping them apart because they're unsure about the other person's feelings/misunderstanding/not communicating (for obvious reasons that make sense because they hardly know each other all that well), etc.

It's so good. I hope it updates soon. I honestly think korean webcomics have seriously got it going on--I've grown up on manga, and I have to say these guys know how to tell a story for sure.

Cuteness overload...Oh My Gawd!!

This manhwa is absolutely great...You can feel the fluffiness basically dripping from it...so light,heartwarming, tender....and much more. The concept is not as unique but the symbiosis really captivates me. Plus point is that both of them have such an apparent crush on each other but are totally oblivious to the others feeling. And those chibis the author makes...just too cute for words...I'm a sucker for good art.
I'm quite eager for further updates.
I wonder if there are more good shounen-ai webtoons out there cause this is probably my fourth or fifth one.
Edit: after going a bit far in the story..,,it turned out to be a sappy drama--tbh I've lost interest. I feel like the story is dragging along and I can't see much character growth either.
Edit 2: Finally, I feel like we're going somewhere. So glad that things have sorted out. I'm so glad that the MC stopped being a jerk. They're back to being a cute couple~

I really love this webcomic!! It's really lighthearted but endearing at the same time, and I love the slow pace they go with the romance and how they give it time to develop and focus on the subtleties in the interactions between the two main leads. The characters are so cute and it's really endearing to see how they grow from the first to the latest chapter. The way the author deal with vampirism is really hilarious as well and I love how she takes a light-hearted approach to it which I find somewhat unique. The slice of life format really fits the comic. I'm so excited its still ongoing and look forward to my daily dose each week (even though I can't read korean i really enjoy looking at the raws) biggrin biggrin
