Gay rich guy preys on and manipulates broke straight guy until he's suddenly gay and in love?! Pass.

Straight guy is in a lot of debt. He does gay porn to get out. He is suddenly gay and a bottom for the rich male CEO of the porn company that hits on him. The fact that the seme (McQueen) hits on and pressures the main guy into more and more things outside his comfort zone.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Ed was fine with masturbating in front of the camera, then McQueen wants him to have sex with some guy, then another guy, THEN he wants him to bottom with another guy, THEN all of a sudden McQueen will be the one sleeping with Ed, and McQueen kept getting his secretary to pressure Ed into it.
It just feels like he prayed on Ed and other broke guys and roped them into his gay porn business.

I don't understand the thought process. McQueen really used his place of power to pretty much manipulate Ed into sleeping with him and it just gave me such weird vibes.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Then when awful shit comes out about McQueen and they break up. Ed starts sleeping with men for money? Then McQueen randomly shows up months later right after Chang rapes Ed for who the fuck knows what reason and they get back together? The whole rape part seemed really shoehorned in. Chang suddenly wants to sleep with him because he's suddenly been into him the whole time after playing a minor role in the webtoon as a reminder that, oh yeah! Ed is broke. Don't forget that's why he's suddenly doing gay porn even though he's totally straight.


If you want decent smut, this is for you. If you want an actual story with depth, pass on it.

Fabulous artwork by Jaxx. Thank you very much for the beautiful, sensuous and emotional portrayal of this love story of Ed and McQueen. This story touched my heart deeply. It is a vibrating experience reading this comic. I highly recommend it to those who loves BL manhwa. I read it on Tappytoon. I give this comic 10. It deserves 10 in every aspect....in my own opinion.

I read this in one day. It’s amazing. I almost never rate things 10/10, but I’m so in love with this story.

It doesn’t rely on stereotypical yaoi tropes. The characters have motivations and fears; they feel human. Even the supporting characters felt real and I wanted to know their stories. There is some jealousy in the main characters’ relationship, but it’s not just a toxic trait that continues and is never addressed. There isn’t any romanticized sexual assault as a plot device like in so many other smutty manga. There is one rape scene that is treated as such in
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
ch. 52 and it’s not between the main couple,
and a few mentions by another character of a past experience.

I love the character development! Characters actually realizing what they did wrong and genuinely apologizing? Lovely, and somewhat uncommon in yaoi.

The art style is unique and gorgeous. It’s in full color, and the muted palette is just *chef’s kiss*. I’d love for this artist to illustrate another series!

The story made my emotions twist and turn with every new development. I was so invested in the characters and how their story would end. It had plenty of drama balanced with sweetness, and a good ending.

The sex scenes were hot, and the version I read was not censored up until ch. 20 or so (I’m not sure why it changed). I initially started this for the smut, but ended up loving it for the story!

I highly recommend this to anyone as long as you’re okay with a good bit of sex scenes. Honestly it’s so wholesome and cute, even considering the smut.

Loved it!

I think the biggest reason I enjoyed this was the complexity of the characters. Not to throw shade, but most manhwa don't have complex characters because they're difficult to write well and most manhwa are created by inexperienced storytellers.

These characters had real depth, complexity in their motivations, and a realistic range of emotions. Even some of the side characters had character arcs and good growth. It was incredibly interesting and engaging to read.

I especially loved Chang. His character arc was so good, and his motivations and emotions felt so real and raw. Him consciously doing bad things while also trying to do good things put my heart in a weird place. I pitied him and thought he got what he deserved, but at the same time I was really rooting for him. I wish we could get more of his story. I want to watch him become a better person and find happiness.

Bizarre Story

Rating: N/A
I was interested in Ed's story but so much of is weird and fragmented that we keep wondering who and what did he do before his current situation? The debt was just a dumb gimmick that didn't do anything to plot other than add loldrama. Is there a love triangle? What? I have no idea it's been like 50+ ch and IDK why Chang liked him at all.

I feel like the major resolution happened off-screen and I'm wondering why the endgame relationship existed in the first place. There's definite moments where the scenes are rushed esp the one hotel scene and months seem to pass w/o any input so it's just confusing.

Art is nice though

Okay I really like the art style and the cliche plot was fine.

Ed has this innocent almost princess like personality, he is strong and can fight, but in terms of romantic feld, he is a lost case. I can't. (Only his background can touch your heart).
He fall deeply in love with an actor and gay porn producer McQueen, they start dating. What I didn't like was that McQueen said to Ed "Even though this can hurt you. I wont stop doing it"
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
he was refering to acting in porn.
He gives a damn about Ed's feelings. Oh but he was concerned about Ed doing too and also he was jealous about Chang. How cynical. But he do it with others because is a job, huh? *unbelievable*
That's what I hate the most. Ugh.
I can't deal with semes like that and ukes who are starving for being loved. I'm out.

More depth than I thought

Day Dreamer was on point with their review even though they only read one chapter lol.

I wasn't expecting more than smutty smut smut when I read the summary, but this story challenges your perception of the porn industry and allows you to understand how easy it is to fall into and keep continuing to do porn. But don’t worry if you’re here for the smut cuz you’re in for a treat. The bodies of the guys are manly af, and the main characters have abs for days. Recommended for the abs alone.

The author also did a pretty good job of portraying the different types of people who do porn and their reasons for doing it. The most recent chapter and one of the side characters really hit me in the feels when he said
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
that the only thing he wanted was to be reborn.
The author also did well in portraying the cityscape of New York City and making it seem believable. I wouldn’t be surprised if the author actually lived in NYC for a while.

I was surprised by the sudden confession, and there are some unsavory characters starting to bare their fangs. But other than that, the romance between the main character and main lead grew rather naturally and somewhat innocently actually as they bonded over their love of movies (albeit smuttily lmao). And ah, that’s what the story feels like. It feels like I’m watching a movie and each chapter feels like a scene in that movie.

Overall, this managed to move me and keep me engaged. That’s a win in my books.

Potential for More Depth?  
by Day Dreamer
December 3rd, 2018, 8:11am
Rating: N/A
I’ve read quite a few yaoi mangas and I’m not usually intrigued by smutty yaoi, but for some reason I picked this one up. Currently only the first chapter is translated — but nothing much actually happens in it.

I think where this manga might get interesting is how the future story pans out. If there’s somewhat of a slow burn romance with a dash of sexual tension as the raws seem to suggest, I think this could be a story with more depth than the synopsis implies.

I really hope that’s where the story is going. I really hope we get character development and romantic tension because then my excitement for the potential of this manga wouldn’t have been in vain. (And I won’t have to come here to edit this comment.)
