Reading it from the very first page, I was thrown into a magical world which the author had created. Everything in this story is just fantastic. It makes you wonder whether magic truly exists, and the author had created it perfectly while blending it into reality without making things seem ridiculous. Read it, and you'll be captured by it.

I almost never write a comment cus i think it's pointless, every person see a different aspect in every manga that draws u closer or keep u away... in this case as many said the art for me was the first bite, but as the story goes i could feel the good flavor of the story (a really good story) and how we feel the heavy of choices in life so well described among this few chaps...this one goes to my pocket of amazing reads.... have fun!

A really great read. While the art was good, I didn't like how he reused the same pictures all the time. Even so, that doesn't make me rate it anyless; everything was just very unique, with the panels and the scarce coloring. The background (especially the fairground scenes) was beautifully drawn.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I loved the metaphor with Il Deung's head as well. It was amazing to see how our opinions of R could change so much: dubious of his sanity, seeing how he was actually much like a child, as Yoon Ah had mentioned before, than the clever hottie we saw at first glance.

Just great.

As for the ending and the story:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I love how the author played with your emotions on whether or not R was a "real magician" or not. We really understood the confusion in Ah Ee's heart. Of course, he turns out not to be legit, but I think the matter was that in the end, he was still a "real magician" in the sense that he changed both Il Deung's and Yoon Ah's life, as if by magic.

The ending was very fitting in my opinion; it left many open doors, especially in the romance, which I think is not bad at all.

This manhwa was the first I ever read and I think it meant a lot to me. I can understand Yoon Ah, Il Deung, and R very well.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Adults/society may make you confused and doubt what you are doing, but as long as you hold onto and follow what is precious to you, you will never be astray. You'll also be able to cope also with the harsh realities that result from those around you, so you shouldn't be afraid (like R) of growing up. How is doing something you enjoy, no matter how childish, bad? Even if it seems stupid and odd to other people, it is a form of magic. I think when we start growing up and start looking down on those type of things, what we are in fact doing is narrowing down our scope of what we can see, and thus enjoy. Being a child at heart is an amazing magic trick, and we all can do it. We just have to follow our hearts, as trite and simple as that sounds.

As Steve Jobs has said in his speech to the 2005 Stanford graduates: "Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma--which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

This manhwa reminds me of Paradise Kiss. R resembles George so much and Yoon Ah with her idiosyncratic, recognizable hairstyle, like Yukari. R also had a similar personality to George at the beginning but of course that changes as you know.

Spoiler if you haven't read ParaKiss:

The ending was also much like ParaKiss as well.

I agree with the person who says this is a modernized version of Peter Pan.

While we all have the fate of becoming adults someday, what we must learn is to keep a child's heart. To trust your instincts, to never become unteachable, to always go after the things you love and enjoy, and to always believe in magic.

This manhwa is amazing!! The ending gave me chills!!! The story was very well done. It's was a good example of character growth and the effects of things that happen everyday. The art was well done and enjoyable. I loved it <3

It was beautiful, the art was exquisite, and it had a story to match. It was sad, but beautiful, the story I mean. It also had fantastic character growth, which I love seeing in a manga/manhwa. I recommend it!

Holy crap! This was an amazing manhwa! The storyline, characters, basically everything about it really drew me in. Even the art was incredible, even though it was a little odd at first. I was blown away by it and am really glad that I took a chance with it since I'm not a big manhwa fan.

READ IT! smile

I started reading this (however long ago...?) because the art struck me. No matter how often I read it, the art was still amazing. Captivating and interesting. All of the metaphor with Ill Dung and his head and his house was brilliantly done (ahhh that diamond tipped place always cracked me up). It was sometimes very harsh, bleak, in order to fit with Ah-ee's life, but then it was also amazingly beautiful. Not only the art (again, awesome), but the message. Her slowly growing desire to be herself, no matter what sort of person that might seem to be to outsiders.

I loved the ending. I won't do spoilers, but I just wanted to say, I loved it. It was perfect. So...

Do you believe in magic?

I found this an interesting story to read. A small part of me wanted the magic to be real and for R to show them all that he was a real magician, but that's not really what this story's about. Likewise the perceived romance that could have happened between R and Ah-ee. It was never going to happen, to my mind, and therefore I didn't expect nor want them to get together.
The art was quite something. It was symbolic but in an open way: there was no "hidden meaning". You could actually understand what the author was trying to get at rather than having to re-read it many times to get the small hints. The artstyle fitted the story. I particularly liked the changing of the boy when he "stepped off the cold tarmaced road"; it was a nice touch.
I think the full impact of this manga would hit you if you read it all in one go, rather than chapter by chapter as I did. As such, it's kind of difficult for me to rate, because it's not average (5) but neither did I find it exceptional. Rather, it's the kind of manga that, while not difficult to understand, will probably leave you with a message that you'll remember.

I finished this story in one sitting, and it was amazing to read. The harsh realities of society are not a new subject, but the way in which the author told the story was so unique and touching. I think what got me the most was the art style. It was not typical and flowery, but it still pleasing to look at. The sparing use of color also set the mood very well. I don't understand why some people complain that the symbolism is too obvious and therefore pointless. I felt that it really steered my emotions while reading it, and it was definitely refreshing to see, since most manga/manhwa don't use such artistic choices.

In regard to Minhyuk not being a real magician in the end, I doubt the author intended for the term "real magician" to be taken literally. It was shown very clearly that his magic tricks are just tricks. I personally think it means that he was not fake like the rest of society, following a set path because it's expected of you and it will make you "successful." Plus, he's so good looking, even I want to say he's a real magician.
