A man as desirable as Christian Grey

...as in both men should trigger your fight/flight instincts and disgust you.

I remember reading HMR's work when I was younger, mainly during middle school iirc, and even then thinking something was a little off in the "romance". This coming from a kid who later read all of Twilight.

I've been re-reading some older series though, and decided to try giving this a shot again. I mean, maybe I stopped reading it bc I got busy. Maybe it wasn't that bad.
I was wrong. It IS that bad. It's terrible. It's horrific.

Even disregarding the body shaming, which is a humongous elephant to shove aside, the romanticized abuse is nauseating. The main character isn't the sharpest tool in the drawer (she's not smart, okay), and she definitely has no concept of "self care", but she doesn't deserve This.

I'd say after decades reading shoujo, I'm fairly desensitized (read: numbed) to the horrors of Shoujo Alpha Male tendencies, but.
This male lead is honestly one of the worst romantic interests I have EVER read.

Here are a couple things he does in the first couple of chapters:
1. He has his friends hold her in place so he can "test" his new pens by playing five finger fillet with her hands. He laughs and verbally abuses her while she sobs and shakes.
2. He bumps into her outside of school and promptly forces her into an alley with his friends. He then takes her bags of snacks and spills them onto the ground. He forces her onto all fours and threatens her with a beating by wooden stick unless she eats from the ground. He takes pictures.

Actual quotes from chapters 1-2: "Since pigs taste the best when they're made fun of." "That b**** has three years until she's free." "Yo! Super pig!!" "I live by bullying this girl." I think that's enough.

I can only assume that his wealth/family background and looks are supposed to eclipse his violence, verbal/physical abuse, and repugnant personality.

But no thanks. I'mma take a Hard Pass on this, yet again, and hope no young minds are actually being influenced by this drivel.

This plot is cliche, wich doesnt mean nothing bad for itself, it depends of how the author develops the story.
The thing here are the characters: They all have some personal and mental issue, making them unconsistent, possesive, weird and scary if they were real. I dont see love in this story yet.
The main guy is really the worst with fat Mio, and if at the end she forgives him (and I think they will end up together), then she would show how low self respect has. She cant forgive someone who treat her that badly only because he likes her pretty appearence.
The other guy who trys to approach her, the famous one, also seems to have an obsession with her.

I started reading this from 2010 and for every four months since then, I have been checking for new chapters. Though this manga runs on the "teenage drama" lines, I enjoyed reading it when I was a teenager and still do as I remember it to be such a fun story then. Maybe I won't enjoy it as much, if I were to pick up the manga now, when I have quite grown out of shoujo, but the old times come back to you and you want to relish them.

Major spoiler here, I have read the following plot about how this manga ends in some website I don't remember. Here goes,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
As Mioh(the beautiful one) plots her revenge against the male lead by making him fall for her,(sorry forgot his name, lets just call him "the bully") she herself, in return, falls in love with him. When they kiss, the spell is broken and he realizes(oh yeah, he HAS fallen for her (the beautiful Mioh) at this point) it was all a farce, he feels betrayed and walks out of her life. Many years pass, Mioh, devoid of the magic that makes her beautiful, has moved on to a new city to start her life afresh. She is no longer pretty but has lost weight and is living her life with a positive attitude. Meanwhile, "the bully" comes to an understanding that he cannot stay away from either the fat-Mioh or the beautiful-Mioh. He gets back to her and they live happily ever after.


Well, that's how the story ends, anyway, still got my fingers crossed for new releases.
RECOMMENDED.

This is my favorite HMR! I really like it and recommend it to everyone.
The supernatural element has always been my weak point and when coupled with a romantic drama, its almost irrestible for me hehhe,
so yeah, even though the story starts off as a disturbing one and some people might have strong opinions against the couple that eventually end up together, I think its worth reading for everyone who enjoys a good drama!

Jahahahaha , I always looked at this and never thought i'd like it but I do I got so bored that I turned to this and I'm sorry the best part is the bullying its hilarious !! But seriously that guy is sick !! lol mentally ! and that girl meh get abused you biiiiiitcch haha and trust me I normally hate this type of thing but I don't know maybe I'm just in the accepting spirit today but so far its ok I just love the meanness haha its just hilarious . . .at the moment

UPDATE: 5 years later ? I still really like this it's very different and it's good to see the characters evolve I would say if you haven't read thus yet give it another couple of years. By then it should be fully scandalised.

Kim Dojin is a mentally ill bully (literally probably).
Mio is a girl who could make something of herself even in her original state if she really tried - maybe she will in the end.
I haven't quite figured out her current boyfriend - though he was nice to her even in her original state (I'm afraid he did it partly to spite Kim Dojin with whom he has some yet unknown relationship going on).
I really like the Grandfather-character (Tinkerbell?=)).

All in all, I only keep reading it because there is nothing better to read right now.

And I agree with whoever said it: "The best revenge is a life lived happily." I unfortunately forgot who/where the quote is from.

Hwang Mi Ri's works all show so much promise and works up to this big finale but the ends are always so disappointing. I see tons of her work that sound like they would be good reads but from the few I've read they've all had that same empty ending. :/

Actually, i really like this manga. The plot is not very innovative, but is still pretty interesting.
I read only the first two chapters, but i hope it'll continue to be as beautiful as now, so i give it an eight

Wow, um... Definitely not your typical shoujo managa but not original either. I can't say I enjoy that asshole's behavior but it's quite funny how her life has taken a turn for the better. Maybe it will add to the satisfaction when she gets her revenge? I honestly don't know but I'll keep tabs on this manga.

Firstly i love the concept, every girl would love a cinderella moment.

It is realistic to a certain degree in the part where people bully other people.
It does happen but not to THAT degree most of the time, but the people being bullied really do get hurt and many transfer out the school. (i have seen it)

Back to the story, the main character is pretty likable since she plays the tragic heroine part and basically there isn't something very annoying about her.
The two guys are really hot and you can tell that the bully loves the fat her even though he denies it.
Weird but its fine.

I recommend it to anyone who loves beauty transformation mangas <3
