I really loved this story, but I feel like a few reviews here didn't give the story enough credit. Without spoiling anything, a major theme of the manhwa is the multitude of ways love stories can go - hopeful or hopeless, bittersweet or straight-up sweet, straightforward or convoluted, etc. How does the author show this? By switching genres mid-story, multiple times. That isn't remarkable by itself; but it's remarkable that he makes it work, and work well.
WTF I just read?! Don't Spoil the Story by Reading the Tags!!!
So cutting it short, if you want to read this webtoon and are not someone with a genius perception for speculation who can deduce the story by the categories/tags and genres mention in this series page... than you are going to feel just like what I wrote in this comment title, but of course in a good way. I don't want spoil, so I'll just say that this webtoon could be a masterpiece depending on who reads it, it's such an unpredictable roller-coaster, something you really wouldn't expect from the description(yeah it's small but when you read you'll understand what I mean). If you are interested in dropping your jaw when you finish reading something, than Melo Holic is really fit for you. Only downsize is the art, I never understand how stories like this don't have mangakas drawing manga or manhwa for them... Dismiss the comments below saying the story was predictable, they either like to be nonconformists or didn't really get what fate is.

Plot twists ftw
This manhwa is really amazing in its own way, and I love the drama in it so much And I agree completely with moonmystery with how I end up podering about it~ also since I don't usually read tags I was shocked as well xD

It took me a very long time to find this manga since it was not on myanimelist etc and found it on manga updates. its is extremely done well and possibly one of the very best korean mangas out there cant believe i never heard of this before
I'm freaked out
I was planning to finish this series in one sitting. I CAN'T!!! I added the "horror" on genre of this page b/c no body told me, omfg I'm scared to hell how am i going to sleep
well, so the story is amazing, super funny then it gets horrifying. there is a lot of twists and turns and it really sucks you right in. I really can't stand horror stories but I still lasted till ch. 62 before I had to ask my friend to read till the same chapter so we can finish it together... because I really need to know the ending ><;;;
I didn't read the tags when i chose to read this webtoon... I was in for a huge shock somewhere around the latter half of the manwha LOL
anyhow, it's a brilliantly written series that I somehow always end up pondering about while walking home...
Good, but not amazing
People rave about this, but I don't find it especially amazing.. rather on the average side.
PROS: - Has some good suspense moments - A few good twists
CONS: - Romance was too fast.. I didn't feel anything for the main couple. - Characters weren't all that likeable.. I wasn't fond of any of the characters. The gym teacher was alright though. - Turns more and more cliche, especially the ending. Very unsatisfying imo... It was also quite predictable. - Average art
Overall, the cons outweigh the pros, and it was disappointing given all the rave. It's an alright manhwa, just not amazing unless you're 100% new to the mystery/psychological genre.

This series gets a lot of recommendations, most of which stating it is a very good manhwa, when I surf through the forums. I decided to give it a try, making this my second manhwa I've finished (the first one is Bongcheon District Ghost) And at last I see why people recommend this a lot--it is very good.
If you ever wondered what mixture of romance, mystery, supernatural, drama, and horror would be like, you can now find the answer by reading Melo Holic.
At first I found the story a great romance, although a bit too fast paced, and I expected it to continue like that. But then there came some creepy elements, which are not bad. And then woah, woah, so drama. And... a great twist awaited me after that. It's nothing like I predicted and expected to be at the start point.
Surprisingly, instead of causing me annoyance by having all these things together, Melo Holic somehow managed to express them at certain good times and sequence. If this story were liquor, it would be the one mixed by the best bartender. The plot is just fantastic; I can tell it is very well planned. The last arc is beautiful. What's even better is that the series never loses its main point--love.
The end, I mean that of the epilogue, is also something I'm so satisfied with. It is a good example of a great way of ending a story open-ended.
I don't understand why people keep saying this series is full of cliches. I can't agree with that. Sure it may have fairly common elements for its kind (I mean, common for any of its kinds) but the story is really something fresh and original. This is probably because I don't read enough though.
The art is nice. The techniques of storytelling not only through drawn images, but also texts and photographs are stunning.
This may sound like daydreaming, but the power of love is strong in this one. And that's just enough. I've now completely become one of those who recommend this.
Did I mention I finished it in one sitting?

Totally Awesome !!!

Now The Review ~
For me this is a good ending... I want to make my self believe that or I gonna feel empty for a few days...believe at the end when he open the door he saw her sit on the bed and watching him with a smile and teary eye...and he become quiet shock and then he know this is not a dream...the last smile he show us is the pure smile that full of happiness...why would the author use that smile for someone dead...

A collection of cliches and lame tropes, executed extremely poorly and in the most contrived fashion possible. The artists themselves admit at the end that they intended to make the story contain as many romance fiction cliches as humanly possible. I think that really says it all. The story stands on outrageous and unbelievable back stories and introductions of third characters that are the enemy of the couple. Without these the story would not be able to fill 10 pages.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The whole split personality crazy psycho killer thing before the end of the manhwa was an enormous ass-pull that illustrates the most important thing to know about this work:
they were making it up as they went along. This series was written at an orderly schedule, by committee. they all gathered around a table and asked each other, what story should we tell this week? Each chapter is actually its own story, yet it has the same characters playing in it. And the authors let the reader mistakenly believe the manhwa is one singular story instead of a weekly publication of whatever they came up with before breakfast, no matter how nonsensical or completely unrelated to the rest of the work it might be.
