Washboard Abs I Can Scrub My Pre-Frontal Cortex Across

[2nd complete read]

“BJ Alex” holds powers of structure, presentation and attraction. Scenes and scenarios feels lively. It never gets overly bogged down in the drab and dreary. It feeds you just enough character transformation, smut and pander to keep you reading. It works, it’s enjoyable, but I’m tired.

The confluence of story beats that keep this body functioning could not be more rote. Development in far too many manhwa is conditional on the presence of the viewer i.e. Dong-Gyun still being stiff as a board upon meeting one of his old friends, previously disgusted at his homosexuality. Surely there are more directions this sort of meeting and resolution can be tackled from? His reactions plays into the character we have seen in the story so far, but it doesn’t speak true to the reality that even just a handful of years can be impactful in the way in which one considers and reacts to their “trauma”.

My mind immediately goes to the best in this and tangentially related genres I’ve read. “Cheese in the Trap” does the psychological off kilter perfect boy much better than “BJ Alex”. Yoo Jung is manipulative and vindictive, and those elements don’t necessarily change through out the run of the story, but he does develop and recognise that people don’t view that aspect of himself positively. Alex on the other hand shifts so wildly from hard to soft boy that it just seems arbitrary if you don’t buy into the preconditions for his “growth”/”change”.

In fact, concrete identities is something “BJ Alex” struggles with generally. Apart from the instances of uni-dimensionality (the overweight bully lol)… Dong-Gyun is obviously a pillowy soft boy, but I’ve read a commenter praising his ability to be confrontational when required. However, he generally leaves me wanting. Not necessarily because he doesn’t seem like a character with some dimension, but because he isn’t viewed as needing “fixed” in the same way Alex is. This is understandable to an extent. Alex is a right royal cock and gets abusive for no good reason at points in the story. But personally I have always detested a lack of recognition in the negatives associated with being overly nice and easy going. Personalities have positives and negatives. This simply adds to me finding Alex’s personality shift jarring. A soft boy made hard through the trauma of a previous relationship. A bit boring. A bit unbelievable.

“All About Lust” is an example of a smutty yaoi manhwa that builds concrete, interesting identities for it’s characters, while also veto’ing the requirement for them to be damaged by their homosexual identity. The characters hobbies and interests even factor into the start and development of the relationship! This is completely foreign to “BJ Alex”. After all, what do the main pairing seem to care about apart from each other? What are their hobbies? How do they spent their time outside of each other? You can extract some information, but not enough from the total run of “BJ Alex”.

Ultimately I understand that these stories are created for straight girls, by straight girls. They are also created by Koreans (manhwa duh), which is a cultural atmosphere that I have no knowledge of as a born and bred Briton! But as a G A Y M A N I am highly fatigued by the picture stories like this draw of the le gay experience. I am not normal by any means, not even when compared against the average homosexual, but coming out is something that one moves past relatively quickly once it originally happens. I have lots of good heterosexual male and female friends, and the quirks of our relationship are a myriad more interesting than anything I’ve ever seen presented in a manhwa. I just find my own experience poorly reflected on and done little justice when it is spelled out by these authors.

In conclusion, I enjoyed “BJ Alex”. All prior compliments hold, and the sex scenes are really good. But as my time is increasingly sucked into the blackhole of full time work, I am becoming even more of a stickler for “MORE”. I really enjoy romance and yaoi manhwa, but I want MORE. “BJ Alex” is physically invigorating, but not spiritually or intellectually.

When I started reading this manhwa I thought "oh god this is embarrassing" however as I kept reading I realized it was really good, I felt a lot of emotions and I loved the ending.

I didn't like this so much ( ఠ ͟ʖ ఠ)

Well ~ i personally didn't really like this, i guess this is very overestimated because the characters are handsome and the plot is generic and obscene, it's like the type of "seme hates uke → uke likes seme, they have a discussion → seme realizes that he likes uke and uke forgives him → the rest its just "oh look how they are a lovely couple".
It's not my type of plot but this isn't is the worst that i even read 🙂

This had way more plot than I expected! But also, way more cringe. I felt so much second hand embarrassment in some parts that I had to pause a few times when I was reading. Anyway, I wasn't too sure about this one, especially at the beginning, but I started really getting into this after they set everything up. I really enjoyed the chapters in the 40s to 50s.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
It was so cute when Jiwon started chasing ackkk!

This is my first time making a review here but I just want to say that this series was amazing. This is actually the first BL webtoon I've ever read since I went on BL hiatus.

Anyway, the premise was quite interesting and although the start was quite rapey I pushed through because of the art. It got quite cheesy at parts, and there isn't much conflict along the way, so it becomes a lighter read for me after the rapey parts. One thing I want to point out though was that the side couple stuck more to me than the main, but maybe that's just because of my preference for older characters. On the other hand, the wild adventures of the main couple were.. quite wild! Haha. I wish there was more of the side couple, but still a good read anyways.

Alex was such a cool and interesting asshole character (reminded me of the Cheese in the Trap type of love interest) but turned into cheesy and boring by the end (I guess good for Dong Gyun). Still enjoyed it till the very end. I loved how smut reflected character and relationship progression.
