mind blowing art and style

The story line is intriguing, but what really wowed me was the way the author put the work together.
I really love the deliberate choice of adding color to certain things and adding what seems to be real life photographs into the manhwa.
This style also fits with the blending-of-reality-and-dreams-in-life theme.
It is amazing. The drawings left a big impression on me and I think that red rose will stick in my mind for a long time.
I hope that the plot will develop as amazingly as the art does though. I would be sad if it just turns out to be a cliche story, but I would still love the style.

Only way I can describe this is the word above... its amazing, you can never really know what will happen next and it never feels ridiculous. The art is odd but really brings out the feeling of the story(with exception to the rich dude... no clue how he supposedly looks good o,o). I agree with niteangel completely about the contrast the artist does with black and white. All in all I believe this has the potential to be quite an amazing ride, and even without the intriguing art fully capable of being an amazing story. With it, this will probably cement itself into my top 5 with ease. I can't wait to see the future of this manhwa if possible.

Ha Il Kwon has a way with writing stories.

Facing the struggles of life living in poverty, Yoon Ah-ee's abandons her dreams and passions and submits to the harsh world, reality. Day by day struggling to keep her and her sister fed, she meets a strange magician, slowly finding that small lingering childhood that she has within herself.

This story doesn't have big explosions, huge boobs and epic fight scenes otherwise dominated by the global entertainment industry. This Manhwa is about PEOPLE, and their lives, how they deal with their problems.

parallels in (my anecdotal) life that it's hard to objectively judge it.

But that's the "thing" which makes this so unique, so special. It's one of those that you have to create a special category for, and file it away (possibly for a long time). The story will stay with me forever. The author's way of telling the story of one particular side character (the one with the "long face") is so... insightful that it gets you wondering if it's the story of his (author) life. His story parallels a close friend of mine that it's sometimes painful to continue reading.

The story is very intense and personal. I find it a bit TOO personal and need to take a break from it. It's very overwhelming, but I would recommend this to everyone (manga/manhwa/manhua) reader or not. There's something too soulful, deep, for this story to be ignored.

It will be somewhat disheartening if this story is not continued, but that's just how some stories are. Its all the taste of life. Stories like this draw people in. I love and dream of stories like this one. A "real" protagonist, an enchanting and bewitching character who takes your hand and lets you fall in love and dream, if only for a little while, the not so perfect other love interest, and our jealously purple side characters. It's something else....

I along with many others fell in love with this series... but sadly our love isn't enough to support the author. It's an amazing series, but don't get your hopes up about finishing it since the author him/herself contacted the scanlators asking them to cease and desist. I guess our only other option is to start learning Korean...

Excellent yet equally depressing   
Rating: 9.5 / 10.0

That's probably one of the things that makes this so work so good, how it manages to thrust these negative emotions upon us. The comedy is quite good when it appears, but the contrast is such that i often forget to laugh.

Beware of this one as it is not completely translated and it doesn't look like it will be anytime soon [translation halted due to translator leaving group]. This means that after ch11 we're left with a melancholy feeling with no clue as to whether the ending will be happy or just as depressing as many of the previous chapters.

That said, it is excellent.
EDIT: The group didn't resume because they were later contacted by the author (or maybe it was the publisher) and asked to stop. They were in talks to find a compromise but that went on for a very long time and another group took over.
EDIT: Ok, it's all translated now and it does lighten up in the last ten chapters, at least i think it does. The final chapter seemed a tad of a let-down but it's a little bit better than if it were to have ended with chapter 26 (which would have been acceptable but when i read it i was thinking 'i hope there's one more chapter')

The art is great, with its dark ambience. Since I am not yet used to webtoons, this stands out amongst others pretty much. Also, there is a sense of surrealism, especially how one character who was supposedly handsome was drawn in an awkward way, which reminds me much of Oyasumi Punpun.
Now in terms of story, I find it very depressing at first, but at the end of every chapter, the author makes it a point to make its readers cling to hope. It doesn't take time in building up the story and does not infodump, which makes reading it quite clear.
The characters are very likeable, especially the protagonist, who actually is very realistic. The magician's rhetoric is something, but not unique in comics, but how he ascribes his belief makes the read more worthy of time.

Overall, I highly recommend this webtoon to everyone.

This story made me cry! I mean I barely ever cry to these things but this story/webcomic had my heart in my throat the entire time till I had to let it out. Absolutely one of my favorites with it strange but amazing characters. I give this a rating of 11/10 if I could! Try it, you may just fall head of heels for it!

Most amazing thing I've ever read. I live for this kind of dark, creepy story. It has a similar atmosphere to a Grimm fairytale or a poem by Edgar Allen Poe. The series is full of symbolism too, even the characters' names. The art really beautiful too in a raw, emotive way, twisting reality of the pages. Like the creator's use of colors... Light pink lips, yellow blossoms scattered over the page, the red mailbox... It's really cool against the black and white. When I scroll down the page, I feel like I'm watching a paper puppet show, that's the style of this. As if a magician is telling the story. The webcomic layout is cool, specially with snowflakes and stars, it looks like they're moving. I'm new to webcomics, so it's a breath of fresh air to me. I love it.
