You Have To Push Through

I had heard a lot about this story before and decided to give it a try. The other comments are right that Hyesung was annoying and overall unlikeable for a lot of the story, but he does try to redeem himself later on. It's a series that gets better in the latter half of the plot, you just have to push through it.

Also Byul is so cute and I definitely see what he gets from his Mama.

I love main couple in this manhwa tbh, maybe people have different opinion but to me, i understand why the uke act like that like he have a past like that.. and he live with Alpha and he got pregnant with the person he dont love(?) also his pride was shattered because suddenly he become a omega (?) .. yea maybe he is annoying but i still like him tho.. lolol i read comic(manga, manhwa,hua, western) since i was even cannot read bcs my bro and sis is otaku, and basically i learn to read from manga lol so because i alread read so so many things, i think i found so many annoying chara already. and i think Hyesung not that annoying.. yea maybe i feel bad for Dojin but.. people already forgive Heesu when Heesu want to separate Hyesung and His baby.. but why people not forgive Hyesung already?

Well, there is no way to disagree with the comments below. The uke is annoying, ungreatful and generaly difficult to "watch" and the seme did change from a cold bastard to a lapdog. Nonetheless, I think the story gets better later on and is quite enjoyable. It also has a good ending, finishing basically every plot line and giving enough of smut and side stories to be satisified, which other yaoi webtoons I have been reading lately had problems with acomplishing.

I think the mangaka had a hard time showing the reasons for the uke's behaviour and this is why he comes of as an annoying brat.

Honestly, when we learn about his past and how basicaly very single person in his life was abandoning him or using him (apart from the one friend who was too dense to help - I mean he didn't really react to his roommate tring to rape Hye-sung in his sleep), it gets quite obvious why he cannot act normal. He didn't even have one day to think through all the things that has happend in his life and was thrown into a situation without a way out. No wonder he tries to escape and loses it from time to time, there has been just too many things falling on his head. He shouts and runs away not to cry and get terryfied of everyone around. In a way he's really strong to go with this all head on. He doesn't treat Doujin well because he doesn't believe in him nor in his feelings. And he doesn't want them. He doesn't know what love is, yet he knows when he gets too far with his silly requests. He's just taking the best out of the situation he's in because he know the good things will end. He's constantly prepared to run or to be hit or cursed and yet he just takes it as normal (we can see this when he meets Dojun's family, he thinks they're nice even though they have throw them out). The only thing he can do is shout, which is annoying but at least he's not crying all the time. And he tries to get out of the situation, with the part time job, cleaning, contract- any way so he can have a bit of control of his own life. And then when he thinks of seeing the baby and getting closer, he hears that everything was a lie and if he doesn't agree with Dojun, he will just be forced to obey, since he's an omega. Even when he gets back, Dojun never actually tells him how he feels, all the time he just uses everthing else to make him stay.

Don't get me wrong, Hye-sung was still annoying the hell out of me but I can undestand why he acted like this, so I was enjoying the story anyway.
I just refuse to accept that this is the same couple as Hye-sung and Dojun in If You Hate Me So. Alternative universe or whatever, this is just a no. The Hye-sung from that IYHMS deserves better.

Dropped it. I've never encountered such a stupid, annoying and irresponsible uke in any story I've read before. There was no significant motive behind his shitty actions. Moreover, why did the seme start out as a bad boy with no feelings, to end up as the Uke's lapdog? I don't understand this development.

It had a promising start, but the execution was poor. I did not like it.

The uke is annoying, ungrateful, and is entitled. I keep hoping for him to redeem himself throughout the series but he only gets more annoying. So I just dropped this yaoi
