From Esthétique:
Boy-crazy Jae Yoo is willing to go through any underhanded means if it means living in the boarding house full of hot guys… Even if it’s going out on a blind date with the dorkiest boy in the school. When she dumps the guy immediately after, she pisses off his handsome best friend Ji Hu and from that point on, the two are constantly going at each other’s throats like cats and dogs. When Jae Yoo finally accomplishes her dream of entering the “boarding house of hunks,” she thinks that nothing could go wrong. An amazing house, a kind landlady, and even a cute guy who seems to be interested in her… What’s this?! Ji Hu is the landlady’s son?! And how is it that he knows about Jae Yoo’s most embarrassing moment in life? What kind of life will the two lead under the same roof? Will they be able to live together at all?!

Kept me entertained

It was interesting enough to keep me reading and while reading I didn't really notice many bad points about the story. As expected the plot is very dramatic and complex and plain messed up buuuuuuut that goes for many manhwas out there and occasionally taking a dip in that can be entertaining. The start of this manhwa was probably it's best, especially since that was the main drawing point of the manga, a "house of hunks" and imo I think the part where she stayed at the house should have been longer whereas when she left the house should be the ending. However the author dragged it on for unnecessarily long and I don't see why it finished at where it finished when it could have finished ages ago with the same ending. So my complaint is that the story dragged on too much and lost the excitement of the climax/ending point, and the ending itself wasn't that great either. It's worth a read if you're just looking for mild entertainment though. imo the art is quite nice too, the cover drawings anyways.

Hilarity ensues when the feisty girl moves into a dorm filled with yummy and hot guys. This manga was actually one of the better ones out there for this author, and i remember liking it better when I read it the first time. Unfortunately, this manga is cliche despite the entertaining moments, and the humor becomes repetitive. The art is, as usual, awkward at best.

I just erased the canon ending from my mind and made up my own version. It helps.

Two words. EPIC FAIL.

The ending was just a down fall. It leaves EVERYTHING hanging. I was literally screaming to myself, "Is that all the crap?"

If the ending was made better I would have given this a 3. none

FTR, Art is not that great either. I'm not a fan of Manhwa. The art is just annoying. Heck, the covers were super eye catching. But what happen on all the other pages? The story is typical. Reverse harem on it's best. Ugghh. none

Well, what to say...I thought everyone was lying when they said ,that the ending was really bad, but they were right. At the end the story rushed and lef me behind. It`s really sad, because this manga could be better if there were one and a half volume more with and ending that would make everything clear.

Don't even waste your time. It was one of the WORST romance series I have ever read.
The ploy is basically: get together, fight, break up, get back together. OVER AND OVER AGAIN. Yes, it happens like 20 times. Soon as a misunderstanding is cleared ANOTHER appears the next day. The characters are just annoying, especially the girl, and it makes you want to reach into your monitor and punch the b****.

Point 1- The ending was rushed. HMR chose a very bad way to end the series. The two protagonists kept on bickering and it was never ending. Obviously, they reconcile but very abruptly on the last chapter. It happened way too fast and the bickering just lasted way too long.

Point 2 - Repeatitive. HMR repeated a lot of things in the series. And it gets boring and everyone is tired of it. Her characters are so alike and I could even say the same. And the lovers' quarrel happens way too much and it gets tiring.

The same things happen in the manhwa. I could barely finish it but I had to. It was too cliche at times and seriously nerve-wrecking. Read this only if you are a tolerant person, you have tons of time and could stand reading not so good art.

Even though it gets a bit melodramatic in the last 2 or 3 volumes with the two main characters arguing non stop with each other and making the reader wish they would just go with somebody else, this manhwa is really nice and keeps you interested during the whole 17 volumes.

I believe the main character changes a lot during the story because at the beginning she wishes for something really stupid like wanting to be in a house full of hot guys but then, near the end, she wants to do well in life and with her boyfriend. She is an airhead throughout the story, that doesn't change, but even though she is like that, she improves, which is nice.

It's not the best manhwa I've ever read but's nice all the same. ^^

First, let me say that I am a huge Hwang Mi Ri fan. I love her style. This story is really good for shoujo; the relationships progress, it's really funny, and the heroine has (thank God) a spine and a soul. That being said, I'm disappointed in the ending. It feels rushed, and I don't think that it gives the storyline or the characters any closure, and does the plot no justice. I'm not sure if the series got canceled or if HMR felt the inspiration had gone dry, but it's slightly disappointing. Quite haphazard really. That aside, I would recommend this story to anyone looking for a good shoujo read.

For the most part I enjoy HWANG Mi Ri stories even though many of her stories are similar. I think that the main female character was a bit annoying since she kept on messing up things and hurting the main male lead and others without admitting or knowing that what she was doing was wrong. The reason I don't say I hate her character is b/c I thought that it was a bit more realistic or different from many manhwa where the main female character is always getting hurt despite her being all innocent and nice to everyone. At least in this manhwa when the female lead got her feelings hurt you could kind of say she brought upon herself. The ending was kind of what I expected, but it did feel rushed to me and didn't really make much sense to me.

The characters don't grow and just when you think things will progress between the male and female protagonists, they get messier. The plot was promising, but the lovers' quarrel scenes, which were funny at first, get old fast, particularly if they drag on and on for chapters... sometimes taking up half of the same chapter. It feels like you're reading the same page over and over again.
