This manhwa is a gem. One of the best I've read so far. I was awed after one or two chapters and now at the end of volume 6, I am practically dying to see how it goes on.

Don't hestitate and go read it!!!

I just wish they would license it, so I could go and purchase it myself T_T

I love almost all of Hwang Mi Ri stories. It's so so funny, n I dunno just love her main charater personalityies. The main character is strong n the plot is diff from others. Just really entertaining.

is hwang mi ri a machine or what?! In any case, I find that her characters are all too much the same (I swear she has a set character base from which she chooses her characters) and her art is the same in every single manwha. If you haven't read hwang mi ri before, I would recommend this to you.

when I saw it was Hwang Mi-Ri's I was expecting something a whole lot worse.

Although the all characters are same as usual there were some minor changes. They are immature but maybe not as douchebaggy hahaha

The male characters were violent and all, but they weren't as glorified as in her other works. At some point, the female lead even questions their brutality (she doesn't really try to stop them or even tells that to their faces...still, the fact that she shows that she doesn't agree with their behavior is something to notice).

The female lead continues to be a freaking Marry Sue, captivating everybody for no good reason. All male characters fall in love with her as soon as they meet her. Girls may be bitches but she is something else. She's got something they can't describe, something that other girls don't. Wait, there was one male character that was reasonable, her little brother. He did care about her, but that's it.

There aren't that many female characters and they aren't relevant. Now that I think about it, it's kind of funny how her mother is absolutely absent. When she is taken to the police her father shows up, freaks out and hugs her, while her mother doesn't a word in the scene (I think I saw her in that panel but I'm not even that sure if was there).

I felt that Mi-Ri didn't try to make as many plot twists as she usually does // thank god //. So the story progressed faster. Anyway, wouldn't recommend this one...

Even though there are only 7 chapters out, it is FREAKING GOOD. You absolutely need to read this manhwa! The plot is interesting, art is not that bad, and the characters are very distinct and funny biggrin If only the releases were faster, but I shall wait!

UPDATE: this manhwa has gotten soooo really took a different (and WAY too dramatic) turn once

Just those typical weird girls who know how to fight and is overly dramatic and the cold male lead that doesn't know anything about love....I'm just used to HMR 's manga being like this.

I will be honest - Most attempts of mine to finish a work by HWANG Mi-Ri and only Cutie Boy made it on my completed list. The reason: It was (unwillingly) a funny read. So, I didn't expect much this time, too. The drawing style isn't really to my liking, because the characters often seemed rather awkward together and the scary faces a bit odd with their white eyelashes. However it's not as bad as others and you can get used to it, as the story goes on.

Yes, the storyline ... What to say? It comes with a lot of drama and twists, but also (again unwillingly) lots of comedic moments. As another comment mentions it, the parents don't really play a big role and violence becomes a tool way to easily (e.g. Saying a guy is "cute", when he beats another one up, because that one helped the guys girlfriend in getting him jealous). As a regular reader of so-called "짱 (Jjang) Manhwa", most things regarding violance have already been expected by me, but using violence to present a guy as cool is rather questionable. And, to sum it up, in the blink of an eye almost every guy feels attracted to our heroine - and of course is handsome. Kkk. So, you know, what you get ... and again this one couldn't change my mind of HMR works. Sighs.

Honestly I don't know why I read on so far. Maybe I thought it would get better.
I was wrong. It just got worse and worse.
Basically we watch as a stupid girl does some things no other girl would do, makes a fool out of herself and continues to do so. And the guy is the one who makes a constant fool out of her, never the other way around. There has to be a balance otherwise the main character becomes pathetic and the main guy becomes aggravating.
Total fail.
Damn I wish I hadn't started reading it.

Horrible main characters IMHO. She's self centered and doesn't care if she hurts those around her. And she gets everything handed to her on a golden plate. It's like she has no special quality whatsoever but all the guys like her just b/c she happens to draw ppl to her somehow .... err...somehow. I find her best friend a more suitable main character than she is. And the main char dude is the same ... a weak, self centered jerk that hwang mi ri tried to used his poor mother's death to try and give his personality some depth, which failed. At least in her other series if the heroine is a failure, the hero gets to save the day but in this one both of them were failures.

Every time I read another Hwang Mi Ri work I surprise myself. Like, I know that HMR hasn't made anything more than decent but damn the hope for a good manhwa still comes. *long sigh* God, this may be one of the worse ones.

Just let me get this out of the way: the idea of crazy boys as romantic interests is always interesting IMO. Plus, its a reverse harem - why the hell not? /evil smirk/ Honggane started out as a 'guilty pleasure' sort of manhwa, but then it got really annoying real fast.

Well, there was no overarching plot to complain about. The art is typical HMR, which translates into 'not very good'. There's few detail and settings are recycled. Character designs are, to be fair, quite improved. The faces are drawn nicely, but the clothes are still terrible (lol). Characters, ho boy, are badly written. Its almost like the manuscripts for each person had been switched in development. They act erratically - meaning they go OOC a lot of times. There were two guys that got me interested in the beginning, namely Nanpa (the big brother) and his sidekick (forgot his name). I can't explain it, but there's something about their dynamics that drew me in ---- AT FIRST. Then HMR destroyed their characters completely.

And I realized I don't care anymore. This manhwa is excruciatingly painful to read. I couldn't care about the main couple - the girl is a melodramatic idiot and the dude is a bonafide ass. I don't understand why everyone else, who all seemed quite sensible, are pushing them together. God, this manga is annoying.
