Se-Joon and Se-Wa are siblings with a dark, complex relationship. Se-Wa, a girl considered psychotic by others, is attached to her brother... a little too attached. In her eyes, there is only Se-Joon, and no one else. And what of Se-Joon's feelings?

This manhwa contains incest themes.

Very good reading. I did not expect to like it at first. I thought it was gonna be about a typical school-life and incest. But the story carries so much powerful feelings and the author has conquered it with a magical way. The artwork first of all-- It is like the title is supernatural, while it is not.

It is a very dark story, it shows you where obsession might leads. There are so many twists, until the very end. It is very worthy to read, as long as you do not mind incest.

well, since all earlier comments/spoilers have included some of what i wanted to say, i'll just add that the story left a great impression, making you think about why the ending had to be as it was.

although i was rooting for Gi-Hoon, i felt bad for Se-Joon. when his sister was obsessed with him, all he did was make her jealous; he didn't cherish the time when she was deeply in love with him. when he faced the fact that he loved her and nothing mattered, it was too late cause Se-wa already loved Gi-hoon. (when the twins ran away, Se-wa was quite bored with Se-Joon and eagerly wanted to return home).

The Elements of the story
This is the ultimate star crossed lovers story. Mix a boy with a mysterious past with one slightly crazy/very possessive twin, and a love that can never be, and you get a recipe for tragedy, a.k.a. Flowers of Evil. All tragedy fans must read this.

Dealing With Incest
If you can stand incest, that is. But before you immediately say "oh, incest is sickening, there's no way I can read this," let me tell you that the characters do not try to defend incest, but instead are pulled into this moral battle within themselves (especially the brother-the sister, I think, is less bothered by it. But then again, she seems to be less bothered by everything). The way they deal with their feelings for each other is very believable, and the mangaka certainly is not saying incest is a good thing. If anything, this story says just the opposite.

The Characters
The characters are all really interesting and believable.
The slightly off-kilter sister. She's interesting to try to figure out. At first I found her to be annoying, but as the manga progressed I began to like her and understand her more and more.
Seh-Wa's seemingly normal twin brother. He is a very likeable character, and you feel bad for him and how he has to deal with his sister's feelings. But as the series progresses, you also come to understand him more, and you realize he is much less two-dimensional than you originally thought. He undergoes some great character development.
The Supporting Characters:
Seh-Joon's girlfriend is one of the supporting characters. She is pretty much the same person the whole time, but she's not evil. She's just not as interesting. Also supporting, is the twins' childhood friend who becomes good friends with Seh-Wa. He has his own motivations and interesting past that play a part in this story, and he ends up being a lot more important to the plot than you originally thought.

The Plot
Another great aspect of this manga is that about half-way through, the plot seems to flip over and you find yourself forced to re-evaluate the entire situation. Once I got through the first several chapters (which were a little predictable), this story kept surprising me, and my opinions of the characters kept changing. Once you've started this manga, you will be compelled to keep reading.

The Ending
Also, when reading this, keep in mind how the very first chapter begins because it all ties back to that in the end (which I think is just beautiful storytelling).

Even without that, though, the end of the story was simply perfect. It could not have been better for this manga.

In Conclusion
So the storyline becomes interesting, there's some great character development, and of course the art is just beautiful. If you like tragedies, and can stomach incest, you must read this. If you can't, then avoid this story like the plague. Because if you read it, it will haunt you . . .

I like this manga I found it pretty touching although

I hate that Se-Wa died. I wanted her and Sung-chan to be together.

I was literally crying when I was reading the last chapter!
Overall, I love the story line and the art! =P

Wow.....This manhwa was surprisingly good, and the artwork was just beautiful. Yeah it's twisted, but it's intriguing, and so not predictable and unique. This really made you think, and expect your opinions of characters to change, like mine did. It is highly captivating and definitely one to leave a lasting impression.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
For those wondering about the phone message, I read it on some forum, but the phone message was a name "Sung-Chan-ee", basically showing how she was calling him the whole time.

Wow, I was really impressed by this particular manhwa. First, not only is the art gorgeous but I've also been a raving-yaoi girl lately, and needed something to pull me out of superficial plotlines. This was it. I absolutely adored this, right until the very end. And let me tell you, I finished this in one sitting. Although my back is now angry at me, I wouldn't have been able to stop! Beautiful character-development, AMAZING plot twists, the end was such a tear-jerker... This is the only comic that has been catergorized under, "Tragedy" that has honestly felt like a tragedy. Don't pass up this book, I don't care if you're not into dark theme's, or rotating normal viewing platform, or even incest. It's a great story, and will definitely leave you satisfied. I can't say this story left me wanting more, because I feel that it ended so perfectly. I want to read everything from this insightful woman, I've already read the released chapters of Savage Garden, which I also recommend!

I won't add any spoilers, I know you'll be tempted to read them. Let the plot unravel! Good reading.

Man, just finished this in one sitting and worth the time! I'd say this is one of the few manhwas that really hooked me! Firstly, it's drawn beautiful, actually the best art for any manhwa out there imo.Though am not a fan nor hater of incest, the theme and plot was so heartwrenching, my heart aches for twists and the ending. But it is was such an awesome read even if it's a tragedy! I highly recommend it! Don't let the "incest" idea stop you from trying this one.

Damn, damn, damn, wat a sad but inevitable ending this manga had. Talk about obsessed love. I feel sorry for the blonde guy. I hated Sejoon sooo much, now one of my most hated characters of all time. Selfish bastard. Would have prefered if he died by himself. Damn wat a sad ending. Se Wa deserved better, much better. The parentz got wat they deserved though for dat whole heart fiasco.

As I said it, it's pretty twisted (what do you expect from incest anyway?). Thing is, it's twisted in a good way. You think you know what's happening but not till towards the end. I find the ending wonderful... beautiful, as a matter of fact.

Spoiler (highlight to view)
I do pity Se-Wa. She turned into a 'psychotic' thanks to Se Joon who planned it all along. Unfortunately things did not unfold as he expected it to be in the end. I couldn't believe he did all that to make Se Wa obsessed over him... he love her to that extent. All in all I enjoyed the series and simply love the ending. I knew he wouldn't let Se Wa be all alone...

i like this author's style, she writes quiet, slow stories that dont bore me to death like some other stories...
acutally, im giving this a 7 because of the incest part. i love incest manga(not hentai) and this is the only one i can actually sit down and read, the art is beautiful and i am very picky about art.
but i wish she ended up with her brother.
i didnt cry when reading this, and there is not a lot of character development.
se wa is irritating to me( she says to the blonde dude that her brother should have saved her from the elevator after the blonde dude did, ad doesnt even thank him) but she isnt annoying which is a plus.
without the incest aspect of it i probably would have given this a 5. mediocre, slightly boring, but good artwork.
