Description
Chiwoo’s got issues. Upon returning to school after the “incident” last year, he vows to keep to himself and stay out of trouble until graduation. Easier said than done: his bad boy reputation has made him the talk of the school, and Kyujin - class president and model student - won’t stop being friendly. Trouble arrives soon enough in the shape of Jihyun, a tattooed hunk from Chiwoo’s dark past. It’s gonna be a tough year…

I'm concerned regarding the fact that some readers thought the fight was just a fight.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It was rape, barely touched since the main story is sfw, but even the author clarified that Chiwoo cannot forgive Jihyun because of what he did. Chiwoo was portraited as a rape victim since the start, that's why he was scared of Jihyun, threw up after Jihyun kissed him and was scared to see Jihyun in Kyujin's actions. During the entire story Chiwoo saw Jihyun as his abusser. But at the same extent he was longing for his best friend.


I think this story is not a love triangle but a story about Chiwoo and his way to dealt with his trauma. Sure, Kyujin being pushy was not a very good way to do it but he showed Chiwoo that he was different, that he can control himself.

I really liked it, it was painful and realistic and I'm happy that it seems that Chiwoo overcome his trauma and now he is being loved.

The final side story "what if",
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
was sad because it shows what would happen if Jihyun didn't rape Chiwoo in the past. Their future was bright.

What the fk i just read,poor Ji😭 bad Chi🤬

This is an unfair story,I really felt like crying for Ji😭😭😭, everyone even his beloved one done him wrong,and Chi is an asshole, he played with Ji feelings and made one fight out of drunken status and despaired like it's something so big deal...his acting towards Ji was so uncalled for and he never considered Ji feelings and never tried to face him straight forward like Ji done multiple time,and Ji gave him alot of space and time to thing about it,but he was just an asshole
While when Ky done same steps to make him fall for him he didn't get upset or felt angry,why Its accepted from new friend but not from the old friend?
Thought it about him being straight or gay ,but that wasn't the case,and Ji apologized multiple time and he tried his best to please him and to get thing straight but....poor Ji😭
Couldn't bring myself to complete it cause felt so frustrated from the asshole Chi...poor Ji
And the ending was sooooo unfair ...Ji didn't done something in the beginning that deserve all that cold and abusive treatment from Chi....wow so frustrated...Chi is a bad, annoying, evil and selfish heroine in a bad story ,felt like the writer just wanted to hook up one with another despite the truth behind emotion, And made the other one bad no Matter what
Korean writer just write casual without deep thinking about the depth emotion they created with poor reason to breakup...while Japanese writer got the reason to break up (rape or bullying) but instead they made them get together, we need some balance here between the 2 kind of writers hahaha

Too drawn out

This story felt a lot longer than it needed to be. Too much brooding and silence between short bursts of action. I found it difficult to understand any of the characters. I get that it was tense on purpose because of the plot, but the tension made it difficult to get into the pace of the story.

It subverted all my expectations, and became my favorite

This was a relatively long one (45 chapters), but a complete Korean comic, and officially translated in English as well. I’ve read it in two sittings and it immediately became one of my favorite BL comics ever read.

While I have no particular opinion on the art, the compositions of the panels was absolutely great. Because of it’s format (continuous scrolling, being it a webcomic) the author really exploiting the surprise of seeing who has said that particular piece of dialogue! The composition was absolutely lovely and I felt like it was really constructed that way for a reason.

The story is (by the author’s own words) Chiwoo’s growing up story, and not a love triangle, and that definitely surprised me.

Does this manga subvert expectations? Yes! (related to aggressively pursuing of the love interest), it ends up being a mature story that takes some of the tropes of manga and completely expose them to the real world.

The art

I couldn't get into this because of the art, the characters don't look like high school students at all, more like small headed and permanently angry bodybuilders.

Maybe I'll give this another try but for now it's unfinished.
