I love manhwas where couples would change after they're in love <3 my next fave manhwa after If You Hate Me That Much <3
This is the type of manhwa that I couldn't really stand at first because of it's mediocrity. Seme hates uke. Uke also hate seme. Seme develops feelings. Uke returns feelings.. But when interesting issues started to arise like how they bullied glasses-kid and stuff. It got really interesting. I liked how the mangaka (or manhwaka? Idk lol) discussed the issues seriously, and not just fully focus on the romantic type of love. I also liked how friendship type of love was presented here. And when we get to the near end, we get to learn that all of them were involced with some kind of chain who gets to hurt each other. And if one breaks the chain, the chain would no longer exist. That is definitely one of the lessons I was reminded (not learned, because we get to learn all these things when we were kids lol) of lol. A little bit of push with the main story and it would already be considered as a psychological lol.

And I agree with someone's comment below about Aerak's story. I think that the cool kid needs to know that Aerak was the one he bullied in the past. The reaction/outcome would be obvious, of course, but it would make the cool kid think about Aerak seriously.

The main story was wonderful. I swear. I'm not the type of person to cry, but I think my right eye blurred when
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
it seemed like Jaerim, while crying (because Yuri turned his back when he saw him with gray-haired sunbae), was semi-raped by the hot gray haired kid, was also crying (because he knows how it feels to be abandoned/hurt by the one he loves). I swear it makes me wanna cry.


Aaaand I feel regretful to the gray-haired sunbae. Appearance-wise, he's more of my type lol. Idk about personalities bc each of them has this distinctive personality wherein one would be attracted to. I think that gray-haired kid deserves a better love story. And I'm sad that the author didn't include what happened after they (him and the bully) "broke up". Also, am I the only one who feels a liiitle bit of pity to the girl who bullied Jaerim and burned-kid? I mean, her intentions were good, even tho her actions were toxic. She deserves someone who would willingly accept her past and would inspire her to be better. Also, how about the former pres and Yuri's best friend? What happened to themconfused I'm sooo unsatisfied with how things are lol.

The main story was a solid 10. I swear. But if u checked my rating...(thank u Aerak's arc) Still, this is definitely the type of manga that I'd like to read all the time, if it wasn't that long lol.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
So to keep my professionalism way of writing a comment, I'd filter this lol. Read at your own discretion.
ALSO, I AM SOOOOO FRUSTRATED. I HAVE ENOUGH OF THIS TYPE OF WRITING A STORY!!!! SO LIKE, U GUYS NOTICED THE PART WHERE JAERIM WAS RAPED BY THE HOT DUDE, AND YURI SAW AND RAN AWAY. AND THE BURNED KID WAS THERE AND STOPPED YURI FROM RUNNING AWAY. HE WENT BACK, AND TOLD JAERIM THAT EVEN THO HE (JAERIM) NO LONGER LOVES HIM, HE WOULD STILL LOVE JAERIM. AND THAT'S THAT. THEY HUGGED. AND I AM SOOOO FRUSTRATED BECAUSE JAERIM NEVER HAD THE CHANCE TO TELL YURI THAT THE HE WAS RAPED, AND NOT CONSENSUAL. THE ONE JAERIM LOVES IS YOUUUU, YURIII!!! Tho I was happy bc he realized it later on, when there were a lot of girls surrounding them with vid cams lol. My frustration lessens a bit lol

The artwork is so creative in this one. Especially the facial expressions and transitions. Its funny because the characters are drawn beautifully with detail one moment and in the next they'll look like an emoji. Really fun to scroll through.
The plot was decent, but it was a pretty typical shounen ai. I usually hate when every male in the story is gay, but in this webtoon, each of the characters had an interesting background/personality so it wasn't too much of an issue. A good variety of issues were covered between the characters like prejudice, bullying, weight issues, depression, etc.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Personal opinion on some of the characters:
I didn't really like the story about Aerak. He spent so much time feeling horrible, and working hard to lose weight after being called an animal by Hino. Then it turns out that heís just as superficial as him. I didn't really see a point in including a story like that other than to show how superficial people can be in real life. It was just annoying to read..
On another note, I felt like Jaerim was written to be a little too useless. For a majority of the story he was indecisive and a coward. However, the dialogue towards the end when Jaerim and Yuri were in the river was so lovely that it kind of made up for all the frustration. He said something that anyone would want to hear from a loved one in times of distress and it really hit the heart.

Absolutly did not expect this to be so entertainining. Art style is aticpical but in this case it works well. However I have something to complaim about... side couples. Yes, they were also very nice but their stories not always got a proper conclusion, this is how I feel. For example, main couple (handsome x ugly) and side couple (childhood friends turned bully&bullied turned lovers) feels complete. On the other hand, there is "an evil couple" (two-faced guy and foxy liar) and that (playboy x former fat kid), they definitely need more chapters, sequel or something. Playboy doesn't even know that he is dating a person he insulted in the past. When it's okay and normal to not date people you are not attracted to (for example obese people), it's absolutely wrong to be rude and cruel towards them. So yes, I want confrontation about that, geez.

I started reading this manhwa thinking it's going to be like Aitsou no Daihonmei. Unfortunately, this story is very deep and sad and I feel like the writer wanted to make the korean readers, who are way too conservative and hard-to-please by nature, to give this gay love a chance and let it happen at least under special circumstances. That's why while reading this story, the reader is first introduced to the main characters, then learn more about their tragic past, then see that every other person in the story is superficial and uber-selfish, to the point that they hurt the main characters when being nice to them conflicts with their personal gain. There are many instances in this manhwa in which the reader feels so much for the characters and invests so much in their story, that they'll lose it with all these unfair things being done to them. At least that's how I felt.

Just to give you an example, the seme of the main couple is an orphan and since he doesn't want to spend the money his parents left him, he lives a simple life and he works part-time to save these money until he goes to college (so that he won't have to worry about his tuition). His school doesn't allow part-time jobs but since everyone knows his background, they let him be. However, many students reported him everyday regardless, to put pressure to the school authorities to let them get part-time jobs as well. The school finally contacted him, asking him to stop working, so in ch 62, he gets drunk and opens up to his lover, saying that, unlike everyone else, when he faces hard times, he has nobody to comfort him when he's sad (because he's an orphan), As I read those lines, I was this
--> <-- close to lose my shit for real.

To sum up, the story is very engaging and makes a strong impression on the readers. It's bittersweet. If I had to spot a weak point, that would be the extensive use of sloppily-drawn chibis that appeared up until the first half of the series. Pus, I wanted to see more of the main couple and the side couples when everything was resolved and they started dating without any drama.

I love when love interests aren't always conventual. This series really struck a cord with me and it's very sincere. It doesn't feel exploitive of its male love interests. It doesn't present anyone as perfect.

This was so good. My flatmate had to drag me to bed to stop me from finishing this in one day.

Not only is the story engaging, with all the different arcs. But there is something that truly drags you into it and makes you feel like this is some sort of slice of life, although it's at many times over the top both with the humour as well as the angst. But apart from that, the pretty art and lovable characters (and amazingly drawn snogging...) I am so amazed at how this manwha handled the theme of bullying and psychology that ran through it from beginning to end.

No matter how silly it got at times, the subjects of bullying, mental problems and the cruelness of the world were taken seriously. How different characters reacted to different things was refreshing, but more than anything it's the hope of being able to overcome the hardships and bullying. How with the help of people around you anything is possible. That the system can be changed. That there is hope if you just never give up! And even if that may not always be realistic, it's the type of stories this world needs. The ones that brings hope.

Just like Aitsu no Daihonmei

Seriously, read that if you're into this series. I LOVE Aitsu no Daihonmei and I loved this story just as much. The main plot is pretty basic: popular, hot jerk develops feelings for an ugly, short, unpopular but kind and determined boy. The main difference is that Aitsu no Daihonmei has them go out and focuses on the comedy behind their relationship, and that is has the jerk only be a jerk to his boyfriend and almost no one else while Out of Control is the opposite with it focusing on establishing the relationship and the jerk mostly being a jerk to everyone except his friends.

There are also side couples, but those don't get the limelight very much and are only briefly focused on.

Both are shounen-ai and keep it pg (at least as far as I've read, only at vol. 8 of AnD and only read 40 free "episodes" of OoC). The characters are really relatable and the comedy can be cheesy but still get a laugh.

I read all 40 episodes of OoC in a row and only stopped cause continuing would cost me and I'm broke at the moment. Totally worth binging and spending my time to study.

i binge read this series, & lemme just say i LOVED it. Im normally not 2 crazy about manhwas but lately I've been on a kick bigrazz

4 starters, the characters r a breath of fresh air. Nobody is who they seem to be! I mean sure "uke" MC pissed me off time & again but he's the bravest I've seen of his kind! even in the scenes where he gets the snot beaten out of him-& there are many!!

This isn't like every other shounen ai out there w their usual twists n turns & little character development. No, ur gonna really FEEL 4 the characters-u'll fall in love w the side characters, cry 4 the bullied & hate the uber superficial ones.
**I HIGHLY RECOMMEND U GIVE Never Understand A TRY BC THIS BEAUTIFUL&TRAGIC TALE WILL MAKE U LAUGH, CRY & FEEL THE LOVE..**

SIDE NOTE: best guy is jaerim's chill af best friend who just doesn't give a damn and doesn't do anything mm..dreamy ;3
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
that blue haired guy was going to be THE best guy if it werent for the third thing he did. I've never had so many jump back and forth hate/love feelings for a character -_- sheesh

One of the best Shonen ai (and shoujo) i've read

If you are shoujo fan you are love this one for sure, you will find all the elements that make it a perfect shoujo and the character development was pretty nice though for some it was very fast. apart from protagonists most of character was really well portrayed (especially the Student council president) . Though most of the couples were too different on outside but their inner self was pretty much same,
They portrayed inferiority complex very well, but it was fairytale story where they will find a beautiful prince because of that.
Running away from our ugliness or facing it was the choice throw at couples and how they face it was the story.
But I prefer the first half of this story more. Apart from the protagonists there were three other couples that made love this manhwa , but it was those single characters that made me write this review,
so if you want to enjoy a story of typical shoujo with some twists turn and mix of shonen ai and some story line thatís gonna move your heart , You are gonna love this manhwa.
