Description
Yoseob, normally very quiet and composed, is in the police station convicted of stabbing 8 civilians with a knife. Everyone's wondering whether he actually committed the crime. Does he, a mere high-schooler, really have any reason to have done such a horrifying act? Does his obsessive love for his older brother, Jaeha, have something to do with it?

Story's decent. Give it a read, but the description is misleading.

It's an angst +drama + tragedy story in a teenage school life setting. There is no mystery, and there isn't a lot of suspense. The plot is pretty cut and dried from the get go. But you're there for the ride, and it's pretty good (and sad).

I think one of the shining points in the series are the side characters. Jaeha, Yura, and Taeoh are great, multi-dimensional characters. I especially like Yura and Taeoh because they've both done sh*tty things, but they're not always bad, and they're not always good, and they learn along the way. Taeoh's story is very well done. I really appreciate these two characters.

On the other hand, when you first read this series, you expect Yoseob to be a focal point. It's unfortunate, but the series doesn't dig very deep into Yoseob. We don't give his POV very often, but even when we do have his POV, I think the author struggled with presenting Yoseob to the audience.

Overall, this story isn't very refined. It reads like an author's first few works, but I still enjoyed it.

Shallow story, misleading description.

I started reading this manwha because of the description, which gave me a sense of thriller, drama, and tragedy. And while it is not entirely false, I was definitely misled into thinking that it was all but anything else. Here is what I have to say:

The plot had potential to be great if it had focused mostly on Jaeha and Yoseob's relationship. Most of the story that should have been about the two brothers (which the description emphasized on) was left in the back burner. It would have been much stronger if the readers have first-hand experience living through their childhood instead just as a story that was told as a rumor or as a backstory. It felt like I was tricked into reading a very typical shouja manga with typical themes of bully, social exclusion, and finding love and comfort. The genre of "tragedy & seinen" had been diluted with typical school life drama and cute chibis, almost making those genres seemed unimportant. S/he tried to give a shojo-manga humor to this read and it just isn't working. I was reading two different back-ended manwha which, somehow, the mangaka made a mess out of because s/he didn't carefully thought out the plot. The mangaka wanted to focus more on school life of other different characters, who the mangaka figures, "Now lets tie them in with the two MCs so that it'll bulk up the quantity of chapters."

If Yura's backstory and current predicament was its own manwha, that would have been something I wanted to read because she's a selfish person with potential to have great character build if she became a considerate person. However, it became entirely unnecessary because it had nothing to do with the whole of this story AND it took a good portion of the story. Then once her story is done, she just became a side-thought for the rest of the manwha. All in all, she was Yoseob's victim for hovering over Jaeha; she doesn't even have a strong relationship with any of the characters but for some reason, the mangaka felt that it was important to emphasize on her life that had always been distant from the brothers. On the other hand, Taeoh had a good role. It felt like he was the middleman, a character whom everyone can lean on. He had a good and rich backstory which contributed further to how the brothers came to be. He had flaws and poor judgment like a relatable and human would be, and he eventually owned up to the mistakes, which makes him even more lovable. He is a solid and mentally-strong/wavering person, basically the rock of the entire story.

The climax for the story was weak. The mangaka did not want to push boundaries of tragedy, and ends up keeping all of the "tragedy" in the characters' past. It's like s/he knew some elements of what makes a thriller but used only the bare minimum to create a sappy school life with some sh!tty tragic read. So now it just looks like a crazy schoolgirl with a knife in her hands. Wasn't the greatest read. I would NOT recommend this for people looking for genuine and unique Seinen/Tragedy reads.
