Beyond expectations   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

Living in America, oppresion is not a new concept. We had slavery for a hundred years, then Jim Crow laws, then a number of backlashes against the LGBT community, and even today police brutality against black and Latino communities. All of these targeted minorities who, for the most part, had no say in whether they were the minority or not. They were born that way. And that is what this manhwa portrays beautifully.

When I first started reading, I was expecting something like a shoujo Noblesse. Where an OP vampire teams up with humans and defeats the bad vampires and humans and saves the day. Maybe a romantic subplot. However, this is completely different from what the manhwa is about.

This is about the struggle to find ones identity even when that identity is "wrong". The main character is not an hero, but someone who builds walls around her to protect her from others who disapprove of who she is. As the story progresses, she starts to break those walls down, and begins to let others into her life. She has to overcome her childhood trauma and believe in humanity again.

However, that's not why this manhwa is amazing. It's incredible because this story is not unique to this manhwa. I have a number of LGBT friends, and all of them went through similar processes of coming out and accepting who they are. They had some of the same doubts and fears as the main character. Moreover, it doesn't stereotype anyone. It deals with oppresion the way that a normal person would.

Lastly, it emphasizes how hard it actually is to accept yourself. Some people that I know do not refrain from bigotry, and this manhwa really put how tough it is to come out with people like that around you into light.

Moving on from that rant,
Art 10/10
Characters 8/10 (a little frustrating at times)
Plot 9/10 (for reasons discussed above)
Depth 23/10
Enjoyment 9.7 /10 (hard to get into but stick with it)

Is recommended. If you need more reasons to read it, it got an 8.3 or something on myanimelist

Friend: Mari, what are your plans after graduation?
Mari: Me?...Everything.

What kind of answer is that?!

Jeezus, what a rushed ending! I used to have some interest in this webtoon a few years ago, but unfortunately the hiatus actually caused my interest to wane. The characters all seem one-dimensional and although the story starts out interesting with some important moral themes, it falls flat towards the end.

Fresh start but derails into illogical storytelling   
Rating: 6.0 / 10.0

The start of the story was typical but it was FUNNY. However, the author ran out of ideas to write pretty fast, LIKE SUPER FAST. It's a continuous repetition of the same teenage angst except with "vampire issues." The girl is most frustrating. Despite all these rationalizations from the author that keeps telling the readers of how afraid the female MC is about exposing her vampire identity to her BF, it's ultimately unconvincing and selfish of her.

Another unconvincing thing about this series is the world setting for racist-like treatment that vampires get. It's basically a setting of vampires being discriminated as monsters. What's unrealistic is that people act too illogical to the point that everyone sounds like they're preschoolers. It's the type of situation where the whole world is against you for no reason just to make the heroine's discrimination from bad to worst.

Another point is the stagnant character developments. After 100 chapters, the annoying MC and the ignorant side characters still are annoying and ignorant except for a few. The character are too flat and 2d. The antagonist, which is basically a rival who continuously tries to dissuade the female MC's foolishness to get a human BF, is too flat. Despite this antagonist's situation and surroundings (where humans shower him love), he keeps thinking that his is a victim of vampire discrimination. Makes no sense. Same for some of the other characters. The side characters have one characterization and the author keeps hammering that to the readers but then if there's a crisis these characters do 180 degree turns just to satisfy the situation...

Ultimately, this is a coming of age story for the characters in a setting of vampire discrimination with romance as the driving plot. However, the little character developments along with flat/bipolar characterizations make reading this story frustrating and pointless.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Well, I have read so many shoujos that I can't even count. To be honest, out of all the mangas/manhwas/webtoons that I have read, this only deserves a 5.5
Why?
The premise is good. The story will at least deserve a 7 (for me) if the romance is well executed in the next few chapters. As someone has said below, THE PROTAGONISTS, sadly, ARE THE MOST BORING AND ANNOYING CHARACTERS in this webtoon. The girl is normal and have no special trait, both appearance and personality, except for the fact that she is a vampire; And I have to agree to someone who has said below, the guy is like a creepy stalker.... Then the romance is a continuation of push-pull situations, many cliches and dramas. What's more, even after finishing this, I still have a doubt about their love bond, 'cuz it seems fragile and breakable. Maybe just my feeling :-?
I don't even want to say much about the message the author wants to send through this series. Discrimination can be clearly seen, but it is too simple to the point of shallow. The story makes the heroine a victim from the beginning to end, without growing to stand up for herself. Sigh ~
The ending is too rushed, with almost no problems solved.
I give it a 5.5 because I really like the white-haired guy. He's hot (lol) and way more interesting than the male lead. Actually I'm happy that he doesn't end up with the heroine, 'cuz he deserves more than that.
The blonde girl is hilarious, too, and she's nice.
Btw, It's not related to this but, you can try Cheese in the trap. It's a good series ;)

At first, it was interesting. sorta like, how the girl and the guy met. but as the series went on, it started this cheesy thingymajig. it wouldve been great if the love triangle gave more of a struggle and the signs of the other guy liking her is subtly built up from the start. the ending is so rushed, too. it's like it just started ending things without even solving.

Really creepy main

There were very high ratings and it generally recieved good comments so i gave it a go but i decided to drop it after 17 chapters. I'm not sure if it gets better later on or not but i just really could not stand the main guy, Jung Jae Min, he was just plain creepy and a bit like a stalker too. Although she, Ma Ri, made it quite clear she didn't like him and frankly she didnt really seem to want anything to do with him he seemed to just ignore that and continue to think she has a thing for him and putting her into situations she doesnt want to be in. He practically refused her turning him down and then continued as if it never happened. Personally if this ever happened with a friend of mine i would be very concerned for her safety as the guy seems crazy.

I'm flabbergasted by the high ratings this series receives. The premise - what if vampires were a repressed caste in modern society - is intriguing, but the execution of this premise is so shallow.
In fact, everything is: the villains are stereotypical and shallow, the politics of discrimination are simplified to the point of caricature (vampires drink blood, therefore they are bad and everyone hates them); everybody in the story is too quick to blame, and most are too quick to forgive; the protagonist is mainly defined by being a hesitant crybaby; etc...
Also, the pace is glacially slow for most of the story, and the ending is small-scale and unsatisfying. For instance, Chaerin could have been interesting, but in the end experienced what I can only call character anti-development...
Disappointing.

Out of the hundreds of manga/manwha read...

I actually want to take the time to review this, this manwha was as great as any well reknown manga/manwha artist. The story line and art was so beautiful, very well written, ahh, it left me lost words to describe. The panel set up reminded me of Noblesse. I paused as I finished the story, it took me 3 days from beginning to end to read and I was often carried away reading into the early morning before realising 15 chapters passed me by. Thank you Seok Woo.
