started off so unique, that hot/cold treatment! yet to see this setup elsewhere! hoped for some epic reveal why he has to repress feelings irl, them exploring that magical dream world but meh... simple misunderstanding and meh... old memories. oh plot devices, where would be be without you. every interaction happens is just to raise sexual tension too... which got old really soon. hows getting pushed around on every corner while trying to move plot along even sexy anymore? got sick of this around 30ish chapter but couldnt stop reading because OCD. then that lame-ass rival shows up! who completely forgets why he came there in first place.

really hoped its gonna be at least slither close to Haribo's End of the Road. setting is nearly identical. abused kids -> split at childhood -> magic happens -> nasty rival. i even thought this one is an unfinished weak prototype.

This story has arcs, so the plot actually changes. The mcguffin (plot device) stone is what ties them all together. The art is good, the coloring is truly sensational. As much as it seems I am about to rag on this story, I really did enjoy it.

The first arc has a unique/rarely used story of two men brought together by shared dreams. The bad part is when you realize Jinha is using the dream stone to compensate for being an abraisive unaproachable asshole who will never tell anyone something twice & waits for them to figure it out themselves. Basically, all he had to do was approach Siwon at school & remind him they met in kindergarten, so all of the drama he created for Siwon is entirely on him. Basically, he may be the smartest kid in class, but a complete moron when it comes to socializing.

Arc 2.... Siwon has rhe same name as the protagonist from At the End of the Road, the seme love interests look lke fanart of eachother, but Jihan & Woojin also share very similar background stories of parental abandomnet/abuse, silver hair, & having 2 names. Their past even sparks memories of the childhoid years of 19 Days. To be fair, that kind of background story is so rampant in webtoons it's practically a meme.

The 3ed arc introduces a jilted love interest from Jihan's past who threatens to harm Siwon. Meanwhile, Siwon discovers that his apparently homophobic best friend is closet-gay.

Throughout, there are some really sexy scenes that always turn out to be Siwon fantasizing about Jihan forcing himself on him, but Jihan never does. It kind of says something about Siwon.

And...aaaah the characters are sooo stupid. I also really dislike the way Siwon is forced to fall in love. It has OK elements, but it is too melodramatic, and the misunderstandings could be solved pretty easily, but has to drag on, and Go Siwon HAS to act all stupid....sigh....
What a shame, the art is beautiful.

honestly I didn't think this was going to be an amazing story. I thought it would be so-so. Average. BUT it has completely shocked me. Now it's not the most perfect story I have ever read in manga/manwha but it is intriguing definitely and there may be some cliches..but it works. Everything moves along & flows well. The characters have a lot of back story.

People are promoting these manhwas like crazy on social media (facebook, instagram, tumblr from what I've noticed). Imo, this is either a promotion stunt from the publishers that have infiltrated the social media to make more people buy them or an earnest promotion by global die-hard fans who want to spread the love and make bl manhwas popular. A man like you is a simple yaoi story with a twist. 2 childhood friends that were separated at some point and grew up away from each other, have now met again but they cannot close that gap and continue with their friendship like nothing happened. Plus, one of them is openly gay and is after the other guy. So far from what I said, there's nothing new. The refreshing part is that there's some supernatural power that helps the romance develop. Other than that, the art is plain but cute and the plot is slow-paced.
Is this story a hidden gem, an one-of-a-kind masterpiece like some people said? Nope. Is it worth reading? I think so but again you don't miss out by not reading it either.

But it's actually really compelling? I'm shocked.

1. The art is beautiful.

2. There's something about it that just draws you in. The basic plot is misunderstanding based (surprising cause misunderstandings and revenge based plots are the ones I hate the most) but it's very focused. They don't solve one problem then the author arbitrarily inserts another. There's just one misunderstanding that the plot is based on, and it is focused on resolving it. Nothing more, nothing less. Of course that means that the entire conflict of the story could be solved by the characters sitting down and discussing their problems over tea. But where's the fun in that?

It helps that the characters are characterized in a way that it makes sense that they wouldn't think of talking things out - one's a dense idiot that likes to jump to conclusions and the other is a hardass. So then all the readers have to do is just watch them blunder their way through and hope they make it out intact. Sounds fun right? Did I mention alcohol is involved? Like reading a mini soap opera.

If the author keeps things as focused as they are now and doesn't add extra drama, this gets a high recommendation.

EDIT UPDATE: Whelp, as I thought it would, the plot is going nowhere. Everything was tolerable up till the 3rd arc where the author makes an unwise decision to introduce a third character into an already unstable relationship, then everything just degrades from there. There's not even slow progress anymore, it's just 0 steps forwards and 10 steps back. There are tons more misunderstandings and the main couple don't communicate. The main characters are so frustrating and unlikable now that I'm not even sure the inevitable 'happy' ending will be in any way satisfying. Upside, the art is still pretty.

I withdraw my recommendation. Don't read if you want a worthwhile story.
