What is a sweet, soft-spoken girl (Ha Li Kang) to do when her brothers, having just learned fencing and martial arts, decide to test some moves out on her in order to "tame her" and make her into their "little slave?" She runs to her knightly friend (Te Hu Kang, not related to Ha Li) for protection, of course. However, what happens when, instead of comforting her, he tells her that she is a coward for running away like a puppy who needs constant protection? No, she does not break down and cry like a weak girl. Instead, she resolves to grow stronger. With rigorous training everyday, Ha Li goes from being a scared girl who cries for help to becoming the Jjang (boss of a gang) of the Doberman gang. However, events lead to Ha Li getting in an accident with a truck. Afterwards, she is reborn into the body of a beautiful, but weak, rich girl Aram Han.

At her new school, everyone is surprised at the sudden change they see in Aram, who has gone from a gloomy, good student to a rude, carefree troublemaker. Many people bully her. When Ha Li finds out that it is all due to Sin Uoo Park, the handsome prince and Jjang of the school who detests Aram, she decides to have a duel with him for the position of Jjang. What will happen next is for you to find out in this romantic comedy Korean manhwa.

But I only gave it a 7 because of how to all turned out. Plot weakened considerably after she got her body back, and characters became too complex and turned inconsistent.

I might elaborate this post later, but I'll say that the story should have ended when Han Seo had his final realization about letting go of Ha Ji. (Vol. 24, p.87)

Thoughts on the final climax of the story (only part I really liked after Ha Ji was in her own body again):

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I liked the shooting scene because it was like the last "intimate encounter" between Ha Ji and Han Seo, where both of them revealed their true natures. I think Ha Ji was really greedy (Han Seo's right hand man saw through her), but I think maybe she was so cunning to the extent that she realized she had to betray Han Seo's trust so he could finally let go of her and live his own life. Han Seo ( regarding the final note about his 'dandelion personality') was much too loyal to even think about putting himself first, and if she had continued to interact with him, he would have, as he said "thrown himself down to hell with her". So I think of it as Ha Ji sparing Han Seo, but yeah, as her actions are super inconsistent afterwards and before this incident, I do think she is a mastermind at manipulating people's faith in her; she only failed to satisfy her desires because she revealed herself to be unreasonably greedy in the end. In short, Han Seo escaped her and I am sort of glad about that, even though I feel bad for all the emotional trauma she inflicted on him (well he did sort of get revenge by doing all the things he did - which, if Ha Ji was manipulating him, was justified)

The real protaganist should have been Han Seo. I wanted to know more about him and his issues and how he met his right hand man than what Ha Ji wanted for dinner and Sin Uoo's inability to be honest.

Hot Blooded Woman had been one of the first manhwa I had read. It had me right from the beginning. Initially the characters might give off the warning signs for cliché and mediocrity for those that want everything dished out from the get-go. In a way it was. Haji gives off a cool aura but afterward it seemed to disintegrate. People are left wondering where that ice mama on the motor bike went. By paying attention to a certain mind reader's comments one can see where a character's personality begins and their facade ends. The characters shape the story.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I say facade but with Haji it's less of a facade and more of an unhealthy unwillingness to face the truth. It's as if she represses it for later despite it being implied multiple times by her closet friends that she's acting the whole time. The author just couldn't make that seem completely the case for me..

The art itself is pretty decent and even better considering the other works posted under the same name. I love it when the characters get a shadowy effect on their features which serves to point out their hidden intention or angst. For the most part they are distinguishable from one another.

Read it for the laughs than anything else. The romance won't do anything more than make you giggle. The relationships might give one a small thrill and they seem to zig-zap between humorous and borderline disturbing. Conversely this isn't for someone seeking gore, high levels of violence, or genius thinking, nor is it for one that wants an easy read. The conclusions aren't over the top and spontaneous which is unusual for shoujo genre. It touches on the higher thinking of an adult but never graps it.

Please note that I was much younger when I first read this. As a child I stayed up late at night to finish reading it. It made my head spin and my stomach flip. Older I still find it enjoyable but I can point out several things wrong. This is more touched upon in this site's user review. Also, I DIDN'T come across these observations AFTER reading the translator's note (or the review for that matter). It just cemented in my mind that others could come to the same conclusion. Others might disagree and that's fine and dandy.

it dragged a little too long, the fun somehow disappeared in the third quarter.
ohh well, han seo is one character i can't fathom.

on second thought, i have to commend how HMR ended this series. Much better than the rest. Plus points =)
and oh, thankfully, i did understand somehow han seo in the end. oh well.

Plot - original. Very original. Actually, the first five volumes were probably the best and funniest things i've read in a while now. The drama is intense, but the drama constantly changes from topic to topic because of the characters and how they deal with the situations. Usually a bloody fight would be taken seriously but since they are all jjangs and gangmembers or whatever they just take it like they're playing around o_o its kind of refreshing though..haha. However, the plot gets boring after the second arch in my opinion....
Spoiler (highlight to view)
after she gets her body back... the story began to drag.

Art - poor...but I really enjoyed the story and I got used to the art after a bit. I actually really like it now smile It's an older style but the story really makes up for it.

Characters- probably the highlight of the story. It's one of the first mangas where my favorite character is the main female lead. She is not that smart, but she can fight for herself and she chooses to trust people by her own judgement (she doesn't blindly trust people). Usually the female leads are boring forgetable characters who blindly follow the guy around and always worry about everything..but Ha Ji doesn't cave into the common norm, she's happy the way she is and she doesn't even think about changing herself for the sake of others. It made me so happy to see such a positive female lead for once
Spoiler (highlight to view)
one of the things i love about her is that she is almost always optimistic. she trusts people because she chooses to, and when people questioned her relationship with Sinoo, she said "he approves, I approve. That should be enough". I love her confidence!

I also really like sinoo, although I lost interest in him
Spoiler (highlight to view)
after he and ha ji get together because he just becomes the "nice guy" and i also wanted to see him fight more often.
he was definitely more of a typical male lead. And Han don't even know what to think about him without spoiling everything. He is completely complicated...:s I like him and dont like him..its a complicated feeling. But he's definitely an interesting character - and preferred over a boring character smile

Overall enjoyement - 10/10..the characters were fun and the situations were fun smile physical fights were more prominent than mental fighting (which happens in chick-dramas) which was more refreshing, i laughed a lot because of Ha Ji's stupidness.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
especially the hotel part..when she started swinging the lamp around and sinoo yelled "s and m??!??!" I died at that part hahahhaha

i really hate the mangas that have so much potential but then waste your time. the first half of the series was just a setup for a minor plot in the second half. the author did not tie up loose ends at all, i was expecting ha ji to reagain her memories of the entire first half of the series but she didnt, and i really enjoyed the first half when ha ji was aram. like some other users said, dont bother reading past when ha ji gets back into her own body. i was really dissapointed.
i give it a one because the mangaka basically erased everything that happened in the second half when ha ji gets into her own body. the ending sucked so bad i wanted to kill myself. just skip to the last page when ha ji gets her body back, its still gonna make sense.

This was my first manwha. I honestly wasn't too keen on the art style and it took me forever to realize that the manwha was suppose to be read from left to right >_> Nevertheless, I really loved the characterizations and the entire plot progression.

The notes at the end of the series helped to clarify some things for me about why Han Seo and Ha Ji acted the way they did. Knowledge of Korean culture is definitely a plus in understanding certain characters' motivations.

What really sold this series to me was how Kang Ha Ji, our main heroine, was flawed. She was not as pure and innocent as we all thought she was. We find out, close to the end, that she knew perfectly well that she was being selfish in trying to hold on to Han Seo. And that, in the end, she may have been the cruelest out of everyone in the entire series for continuing her friendship with Han Seo even when she knew how he felt about her.

This story hit close to home for me. Although it never escalated to the level that it did in the manga, situations like this do happen in real life. Some people are too greedy and try to hold onto everything. We have a saying in America too, you can't have your cake and eat it too.

Might not be as morose as the Korean saying though about how if you can't have something, you might as well destroy it with your own hands... they parallel each other. At least in my eyes they do.

Anyway, this series was great! Loved it.

I enjoyed this a great deal and it's one of the few I'd actually read twice. The plotline line is good (though it does lag about half way), and the art, while not the best, is still very interesting. My only objection with the manga is the main character, Ha Li, who while I admire for being tough, is dense to the point of absurdity. She puts up with lots of abuse and still manages to turn a blind eye to the people doing it to her.

well, apart from that I did enjoy it, so I'd recommend it to anyone.

Edit: Re: to Yukinon- (POSSIBLE SPOILER) I still think shes dense for the bulk of the manga (we find out different later though), so I find that aspect of her irritating. I didn't say to much because that would be classed as a SPOILER.

The upside: Funny, easy to read and the artwork/quality of drawing is good compared to the average manhwa standard. The characters developments are well thought.

The downside: It gets over-the-top sometimes and with 24 volumes the story becomes a bit stale and repetitive after 15 volumes.

Overall: It is fun to read. Highly recommended to those looking for a romantic comedy.

I just can't understand this manga. Or rather, I can't understand why the characters act the way they do. When it started, I thought it was fairly interesting, so I kept reading. Wish I had remained blissfully ignorant of the gaping character flaws. I understand it makes them human, but there's no need to bring them up again and again for a laugh (Case in point : The main girl's stupidity gets her in trouble a thousand times during the course of the manga---wise up already!!!).
