Why torment this pure cinnamon roll (=Yuri) so much?

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.

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.
