Jae is a Korean student who came to Europe to study art. Things aren't going her way, but she's determined to make it. One night, her friend Melissa brings a drunk guy to her apartment and asks if he can stay there for the night. Jae doesn't like it, but agrees. That night she has a dream that the drunk guy drinks her blood... which, of course, turns out NOT to be a dream.
Jae is surprisingly unafraid of the vampire, Michael, and starts to paint his portrait. The two strike an unusual deal: if Jae allows the vampire to feed on her, he will pose for her. His beauty and alluring preternatural energy could be exactly what Jae needs to finally succeed as a painter.

Not Too Bad

there were some times when i was seriously would go from flashback to flashback inside that flashback and i had no idea what was going on. then the manwhaga brought in characters without fully allowing them to develop...but all in all, it was a good manhwa to read.

btw, the art is AMAZINGGGG biggrin

Great artwork, great start. Only problem was that the abrupt introduction of the other characters(other than the main cast) in the later volumes sort of caused many issues with the plotline: continuity, characterisation, etc. It makes me feel as though they'd decided to make the series longer.

Lee So-young presents us with gorgeous art and presents complicated and confusing themes in her stories. I admit "Model" was disjointed and hard to follow, but it was overall a fantastic read.

Ms. Lee's work is very whimsical and enchanting, and filled with poetic dialogue and provoking narratives. Definitely keep tabs on her work!

A note to those who are close-minded:
Does it really matter if her work is classified as "manhwa"? Since when did country of origin matter when you're looking for a good story to read?

If you didn't enjoy Lee So-young's style, then fine. You can't judge an entire plethora of comic books by *one* series that you didn't like. There are many amazing manhwa, and many amazing manga. There are also an astounding number of crappy manga just the same. Keep an open mind.

An unusual manga that was surprisingly very amusing to me. It was a bit confusing at times because they sometimes did flashbacks between flashbacks and then you realize that the 2nd flashback was the present...Maybe I just read it wrong.

Though I do agree that the character developments were lacking, making it seem like the author was focusing too much on the story lines rather than the characters.

It's still a very good read but I suggest that you take it slow while reading this manga or you can get VERY lost in it...

I usualy read a number of manga together, but once I started reading Model I coudn't read onother before I finished this(good thing it's complete smile
It's really one of the best vampire storys I've ever read..
A nice ending, not a sad one..
One character really confused me.. so I can't give it a perfect ten...
Beautiful art, though as many other manhawa, not the best profiles.. he.. he..

So far the best vampire manga i have read thus far. Every volume bringing more things to life, yet making you fear reaching the end. At first i was not sure about the art but is quite good and the first two volumes are quite funny at times. I could not help but want more at the end, great ending too which just made it even better.

Hmm... This kind of story is a first for me. I enjoy lighthearted, a little smutty romance... But Model is....hmmm... How do I explain it?
It's like two stories woven into one. I actually wished it was Ken who was the main character here... Michael is just...!
There are a lot of good scenes and I've felt the sufferings each character have inside. I really hoped it should have been a comedy, like the initial chapter when Michael throws up...but it wasn't. It gets more serious as it gets more complicated. Complication, is, of course to be expected with the vampire's long line of experiences brought about by his immortal life.
As an over-all assessment, it is not recommended for people who enjoys shoujo. I'm even surprised it was categorized as one. But to those who enjoy Goth and supernaturals, this is a book for you.

Nothing Special

It was an okay read, nothing too special or anything to get excited about, it was just okay. I felt at times confused on what was going on as far as the story goes. I also feel like the characters weren't developed at all and I coudn't grasp the fact that the main character fell in love all of a sudden without any indication as to why she feels the way she does.

To me, the art was just okay. I didn't like it that much at first but it grew on me as I read the volumes.

this story is very interesting! even though I don't really like vampire stories it keeps hooked after I've read like the first chapter. I like this story more than the vampire knight! anyway I highly recommend this manga.

[edit by mod, Warning: Possible spoiler]
This manhwa is great!! I loved it, the artwork is amazing and the story is really poetic. It's like listening to a song, trying to figure out its pieces. The story has a meaning and it's well developed, without dragging itself. Talking about the ending, it's actually happy, which made me surprised and greatly satisfied.
I recommend it to everyone that took interest enough to read what I'm writing. You wont regret it. ^^
