Way Too Long

This is one of those guilty pleasure train wrecks where you can't take your eyes away even though you know it's bad. I thought the initial concept of this story was good. Not that body-switching hasn't been done before, but I liked how this one started. It had lots of problems though. For one, it was choppy. Not sure if it was the translation, but sometimes the switch between scenes/chapters was super abrupt. Also, maybe because this was 2002, but most of the side characters in the beginning were super sexist (tons of instances where the girl was underestimated just for being a girl) - I just found it agitating, but maybe the author was trying to build a situation where the female lead had something to prove.

I think I would have rated this higher if it had ended around Volume 12. The first 12 volumes were fairly entertaining, but the rest was excessive and I got really annoyed and bored. Plus the translation in the later volumes was hit or miss. I basically skipped the last couple volumes because I was bored.

Fun Start, Weird Later

So let’s start with the good stuff. HBW’s romance is okay, drama is hot, and the comedy is over the top but hilarious. I’ve laughed out loud way more than once at the stupid stunts.

Unfortunately there is a bad side of HBW. The ending, about the last 5 or so chapters, gets really weird. I read it once and never again. The story is also not realistic at all and does not depict healthy relationships. There’s abuse, obsession, rape attempts, everything you can think of basically. The relationships are definitely NOT healthy.
If you don’t mind the bad I mentioned though, HBW is a fun read.

Typical HMR but interesting

Don't get me wrong, I think it wasn't as bad as the rest of her works. *laughs* That's not saying much, because the rest of her works are really bad. But still, its very typical of this author. Stupid muscleheads, gluttons, stupidity, wickedness, possessiveness, abusive relationships etc. Character designs are typical. Personality types are typical. Character interactions are typical. Now that I think about it, this manhwa is so typical.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
However, this manga started strong. Despite some pitfalls, I thoroughly enjoyed the first arc. I thought Ha Ji was (le gasp) cute and hilarious. She was stupid but can be really cunning without meaning to. I thought that was interesting and would've loved to see that stuff happen due to that manipulation. Spoiler alert: Shame it didn't go in that direction. Anyways, Aram's (the real one) story is fairly tragic. To destroy yourself because of selfishness, that's always unfortunate.

But as the series went on, the laziness became apparent. This should've been two completely separate stories. What was the point of that body swap thing if it was going to be swept under the freaking rug? The author still shows the 'shinigami' occasionally, then forgets about him. Like what? Why did the manhwa become so melodramatic all of the sudden? The first arc could have been a so-so romantic comedy, the second a psychological romance.

I thought that the parts when everyone got really crazy were the most interesting. As I've mentioned before, it would've been better if Ha Ji's 'wickedness' bit her in the ass. It could have a perfect setup for character growth. How do you even deal with a psycho obsessed with you? Especially when he was a dear friend? What does this say about Ha Ji's true nature? Well, to be fair, Ha Ji's kidnapping by Han Seo was the closest thing I could get. Ha Ji unveiled herself in that brief gun scene. She was incredibly greedy, and the fact that she still justified her actions showed how manipulative she was. When it seemed that Han Seo was the cunning one, Ha Ji was just as messed up.

The ending says it all, well, in my opinion. See how these two people lived their lives after they fell to the sea. Who was the one who still tried to include themselves in another's life? Who was the one who still needed convincing in order to let someone go?

Man, I get way too much into this. *Sorry*

Unfortunately, I was more invested on the poison in Ha Ji and Han Seo's relationship than the former's romance with the main guy. I wished HMR went in that direction, instead of resorting to her cliches. It would've been a decent melodrama if needed be. At the very least, the ending was good for everyone. Save for that pedophilia thing, because uhm, just NO.

ok. i've read too many of this author's many that i can recognize her art style on the spot. so much that the characters blend into one another.

In general, i'm just sick of this author's characters. They all seem to be brainless idiots who only have muscles to prove their worth. And sometimes, they don't even have that much.

But this one is somewhat better than the rest of this author's shallow works. So i'll give some credit fo rthat.

But I only gave it a 7 because of how to all turned out. Plot weakened considerably after she got her body back, and characters became too complex and turned inconsistent.

I might elaborate this post later, but I'll say that the story should have ended when Han Seo had his final realization about letting go of Ha Ji. (Vol. 24, p.87)

Thoughts on the final climax of the story (only part I really liked after Ha Ji was in her own body again):

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I liked the shooting scene because it was like the last "intimate encounter" between Ha Ji and Han Seo, where both of them revealed their true natures. I think Ha Ji was really greedy (Han Seo's right hand man saw through her), but I think maybe she was so cunning to the extent that she realized she had to betray Han Seo's trust so he could finally let go of her and live his own life. Han Seo ( regarding the final note about his 'dandelion personality') was much too loyal to even think about putting himself first, and if she had continued to interact with him, he would have, as he said "thrown himself down to hell with her". So I think of it as Ha Ji sparing Han Seo, but yeah, as her actions are super inconsistent afterwards and before this incident, I do think she is a mastermind at manipulating people's faith in her; she only failed to satisfy her desires because she revealed herself to be unreasonably greedy in the end. In short, Han Seo escaped her and I am sort of glad about that, even though I feel bad for all the emotional trauma she inflicted on him (well he did sort of get revenge by doing all the things he did - which, if Ha Ji was manipulating him, was justified)

The real protaganist should have been Han Seo. I wanted to know more about him and his issues and how he met his right hand man than what Ha Ji wanted for dinner and Sin Uoo's inability to be honest.

Reading is obvious

If any of you have read the authors many works, you would find this to be a mix of everything.

Typical drama, over-dramatic moments, confusion, regret, tragedy, rage, violence, rape, murder, pity and sympathy. Her characters display so much emotion (especially the males), so much selfishness and so much flippant attitudes that you can't really take them seriously half way. Though I must admit, out of many of her works, this was the best overall. The character basis wasn't so bad, although it got pretty draggy, and unoriginal about volume 15+, with lots of meaningless drama and circulation around the same topic, it ended well in my eyes (which is quite unlike many other works). The large climax of the story, was actually pretty okay. A small twist, and it made a show that everyone was selfish, and that Ha Ji wasn't totally stupid (although, to be honest..she really was stupid...).

Many like this, and I do believe it was amusing, just how many times did Ha Ji pay the hospital a visit? It was many. And her quirkiness was a good point, just that it got annoying when situation after situation the characters seemed to say the same things, just the setting changed (lol).

I wouldn't say the story is bad, the author just likes really pained heroines that go through a lot of psycho bat shit, but seem to keep their innocence intact. So on the up note, this was in my eyes the most optimistic, happiest, most generally equal footing with men (she was strong, and had fights to prove it! Nor did she worry about gender roles like so very very very MANY of the other heroines) and luckiest heroine that Hwang Mi-Ri has produced so far (from what I have read).

Hot Blooded Woman had been one of the first manhwa I had read. It had me right from the beginning. Initially the characters might give off the warning signs for cliché and mediocrity for those that want everything dished out from the get-go. In a way it was. Haji gives off a cool aura but afterward it seemed to disintegrate. People are left wondering where that ice mama on the motor bike went. By paying attention to a certain mind reader's comments one can see where a character's personality begins and their facade ends. The characters shape the story.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I say facade but with Haji it's less of a facade and more of an unhealthy unwillingness to face the truth. It's as if she represses it for later despite it being implied multiple times by her closet friends that she's acting the whole time. The author just couldn't make that seem completely the case for me..

The art itself is pretty decent and even better considering the other works posted under the same name. I love it when the characters get a shadowy effect on their features which serves to point out their hidden intention or angst. For the most part they are distinguishable from one another.

Read it for the laughs than anything else. The romance won't do anything more than make you giggle. The relationships might give one a small thrill and they seem to zig-zap between humorous and borderline disturbing. Conversely this isn't for someone seeking gore, high levels of violence, or genius thinking, nor is it for one that wants an easy read. The conclusions aren't over the top and spontaneous which is unusual for shoujo genre. It touches on the higher thinking of an adult but never graps it.

Please note that I was much younger when I first read this. As a child I stayed up late at night to finish reading it. It made my head spin and my stomach flip. Older I still find it enjoyable but I can point out several things wrong. This is more touched upon in this site's user review. Also, I DIDN'T come across these observations AFTER reading the translator's note (or the review for that matter). It just cemented in my mind that others could come to the same conclusion. Others might disagree and that's fine and dandy.

This one of the best mangas I had read so far.
You see, most of the characters in the story wear some kind of mask. For example, Sin Uoo Park... he wears a calm face and hides his true form just like everyone else, but for the female lead it's different. Ha Ji's poker face is her stupidity... She acts like she doesn't know at all but of course she knows well...
I guess the author tried to put a little twist in the late chapters...
Welll... I really liked it! Especially the ending.... :3

it dragged a little too long, the fun somehow disappeared in the third quarter.
ohh well, han seo is one character i can't fathom.

on second thought, i have to commend how HMR ended this series. Much better than the rest. Plus points =)
and oh, thankfully, i did understand somehow han seo in the end. oh well.

This is not for everybody. It is violent and dramatic to the extreme. The character can be so incredibly stupid that she makes you want to beat your head against the first available hard surface. The story sometimes drags on a tad too long (but i must say that i was never bored).
That being said . . . i Loved this story! It was different and entertaining.
It was so funny! I laughed so hard my stomach hurt! I do admit that once the bodies were switched back it wasnt as funny (mainly because the bringer of death wasnt there anymore- i loved him!) However it was funny through out the series it just got slightly less amusing.
I LOVED the bringer of death's funny commentary and facial expresions! They killed me!
It also got WAY more dramatic after the bodies switched back. which is not altogether a bad thing but a little less drama would have been better.
The characters were very memorable and lovable. They were rounded and well thought out characters who you couldnt help getting attached to.
All in all a very entertaining read.
