Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
Two high school girls are complete enemies, and they both are in their own gangs. They fight each other all the time, and to get even with the other, one girl tries to kidnap the other's boyfriend. But the information her right-hand girl gives her is wrong, and they kidnap some really good-looking guy who is NOT the boyfriend of the other girl. You know what happens. They fall in love.

Side story: Photogenic
Photogenic centers around the girl in question, who has gone to cram school every day of her school life, finds a photo of an amazingly cute guy, and imagines what it would be like to be his girlfriend, instead of being one of the smartest girls in Korea.

I dunno why, but I really really like korean manhwas, even though all the ones I read seem to always have fighting and a strong heroine it never tires me to read, this story is quite cute in it's own way and overall I really liked it!.

This manga was just an enjoyable read. Not really intense, but not completely silly either. It's exactly what the summary promises it to be.

The art's not bad and I'd have to say this was a pretty good volume of oneshots. All in all, I'd have to say I'm intrigued by this author and look forward to reading more of her works.

role reversal and pace + decent art + comedy = perfect light reading

It's nothing revolutionary or never seen before but it was thourogughly entertaining from beginning to end, with a bit of girl power, a pretty boy and even a sprinkle of... religion tolerance added to the mix smile . Hence the relatively high mark from me bigrazz .
The romance wasn't too sugary (good thing in my book) .
If you're looking for something not 'heavy' to read, cute and simple and short, not shallow, without rape (my gawd =_= ) , try this Korean shoujo ^^.
Otherwise, for multi-volume shoujo romance + comedy + high school setting and spunky female... go reading Lovely Complex biggrin

i must admit only few romance story can make scream from the inside and this one did. it was cute when a guy would be so faithful inspired by his love for a girl. now that's what we call love. goshy mushy but with trust for each other.

still, can't believe it already ended like that...awww

Basically one of the aspects I really like on female characters when it comes to any comedy-romance.. Their own struggle to express themselves from how they are built which in turn has become part of social expectations.

Pretty girls being members of gangs, all girls gang since they all come from an all girls school, one of them falling in love, happens to be one who holds some high ranking..

I think the story perhaps can be projected as a full scale series as well..

I like it- personally. I don't know about you folk but I like this kind of heroine. The story didn't get to have much development. I was shocked when I found out that I was already on the extra story. I don't know...I definitely would've prefered more development, but it's sweet and entertaining the way it is.

Or maybe lengthening the manhwa might've brought it know...thrust the plot into cliches and love triangles and that crap. On the other hand, it would've made it a lot more convincing and interesting.

As for the extra story, it was really REALLY short.

I really thought this manga was great, i understand that some people say the romance moved a bit too fast but it's only a volume how slow do you want it. I felt the way the mangaka portrayed their relationship and the main male characters was pretty unique, particularly the reasoning for the fights and his insecurities about their relationship standing.

Sure there's a lot of cliches here too, but I like the art and it is better than a lot of other shoujos. It has an interesting concept but lacks to develop it in any other special way. But, heck, this was a one volume series, so what could I expect? As dreamerondrugs said, "it's good but nothing to fall head over heals for. "
