The story was really profound but also way too depressing for the reader. You have to read the story in one sitting, otherwise you wouldn't want to continue reading. I am a yaoi fan and was very disappointed that it was only a shounen ai. A change would be appropriate so that the story does not appear under the search of Yaoi.

I took my time after the end to digest the whole story.
This is a excellent read about parting, where no protagonist is really at fault here, and how to rebuild a life after death(?) of loved one.

It doesn't go the traditional route of reshipping former lovers which makes it novel

It's a bit sappy toward the end but still worth it.

I loved the character designs, the premise was good and story was mostly solid. I really liked the artwork. I felt it was a bit awkward at some parts, especially towards the end but was good nonetheless.

I do think towards the end there could have been a more clear distinction that some chapters could have been side stories and/or epilogue chapters.

I think their relationship future wise is a bit bittersweet since Ha Joyoon is not going to give up on doing tours in countries abroad. So even though the seme does accept and understands Ha Joyoon's passion, it is a bit bittersweet that there will always be a possibility that something happens again to Ha Joyoon whenever he does tours

It's so ott and dramatic, well as expected from a manhwa but I enjoyed it a lot and not even bored and read it in one day.
Yoon character seriously bother me,he just so dramatic and annoying. He crying every damn second and there is absolutely nothing likable about him , he is the only reason I didn't give it a full 10.
The best thing about this work is kwon . Hands down he win over me. My personality is so similar to him , strict, realistic and cold outside and never take relationships deeply bc I hate to look weak, overly attached or dramatic.
I like how the way he fall in love too, it's done so good and his struggling was done nicely. That chapter he burn yoons ex was so good 😂
Recommended it

Very Beautiful

This had a very interesting premise that allowed us to look deeper into relationships. Regrets, hopes and dreams of each individual become a common ground to work on where both parties have to take responsibility on wether the relationship works out or not. The pacing was perfect and the writing simply beautiful. I've only took away 1 star because I think it could have been even better with less of the love-triangle drama.

To describe the story with this one quote:
"Don't forget, the person you're breaking up with, was once the person you loved the most. Remember to respect each other till the very end, so that the relationship you had remains a beautiful memory."

I love this story so much it was so different from your typical plot line. With that said some things that threw me off was several long hiatus periods towards the end of the story. For me it threw the pacing off completely.

As great as a story as it was I felt the end was a bit of a mess for me I’m not sure what it was missing for me but again it could have been the all the long hiatus breaks, it just threw it all off for me.

Overall I still highly recommend the story as the release schedule has nothing to do with the story itself. I think if I were to have found this after it has been completed already and just binged it maybe it would’ve been better for me.

So I read this on Pocket Comics, and I’m going to go counter to a lot of the readers I’m sure… but I really hope Taejoo and Yoon get back together. As mentioned earlier Taejoo had no way of knowing that Yoon was alive and started a new relationship. I hope that they can reconnect now that both are single.

Well, i just read this a while ago and the scanlations svcks. Fvck MTL. But anyways, despite the wrong translations— this manhwa really made me tear up, it’s what you call “very heart clenching”. I dont blame the characters for their decisions and ro be honest, this captures what humans tend to actually feel when pressed with this kind of situation. I saw a comment saying that Taejoo’s(?) love— *the ex boyfriend of our mc*, doesn’t mean anything since he couldn’t wait 5yrs for Yoon(the mc). I totally disagree with this. What’s wrong for thinking of your own pain? Haven’t heard the phrase “love yourself”😕 Imagine loving someone so dearly then oneday they stopped being in your life?? Like poof, gone, nada, no contact whatsoever. Being you, you would first choose to wait and then look. But when it gets to the point that you realize how your love for someone is causing more harm than good. Isn’t it better to let go?? Isn’t it right to move on with our lives?? Not waiting for someone long enough till back does not define the gravity or the weight of love you have for them. Remember, love is not selfish— but, it is also not something that we should take away from our own selves.

And so, i dont think Taejoo’s decision to enter a relationship and choice to move on— was wrong nor was it a proof that his love didn’t have any meaning because, no love should be greater than the love we have for ourselves.

Also, i liked how they made the character of Taejoo’s current boyfriend(forgot his name, hate to admit it but he actually got in my nerves a lot)— i liked how realistically they portrayed the extent of human anxiety. He is a very complex character for me, he’s manipulative but sometimes not. He’s obsessive, that im sure of. Ang tbh i liked how his bad personality is what makes him the most human character in the story. I entirely believe that not a single person in the world aint selfish. His selfishness and greediness to claim Taejoo was very evident as he wished for Yoon to die instead of coming back. I mean i dont know, since im not sure if the scanlation was correct but like, it was worded of as something that makes the current boyfriend blood boiling.

Thoughts on Shin Kwon? The fubu of great Yoon. UHm not much to say— he’s an asshole but like not an asshole too. He’s a so-so. What i like about his character is that one moment he manages to show he cares then the next— he becomes colder than Queen Elsa. I’m hoping that will realize he likes Yoon more than just a fvck buddy. All in all his character feels quite cliche to me🤷🏻♀️

LAST ONE!! I also loved how they built Yoon’s character. He was actually quite relatable. He says he’s selfish, but then the next second he aint doing something selfish. He a kind dude. What makes him relatable is that, sometimes, i tend to do what he does— thinking how a bother i am to someone and wishing for something so much later on labelling myself as someone selfish but then i’d walk backwards again— not even attempting to get what i truly desire. For me it’s not a cowardly act. Yoon’s character shows us what most of the people after break-ups are. I also like how he never lets anyone trample on his belief and pride as a photographer. He’s very passionate and very committed to his profession. Though he mentioned how he regretted not backing down at being a photographer and just stay by Taejoo’s side in the past— he stood up and held his camera again saying that even though he hurt taejoo badly(because of his work) he will still continue loving photography— for Taejoo’s sake.

27 chapter are currently up on the “you know what” site but i read the raws up until ch35– didnt understand sht but like i know its gonna be painful lolololol

If you want to read heavy and frustrating sht, go read this👍🏻

Joyoon suffered as well, having been unconscious for 5 years, yet he makes it seemed like because Joyoon chose his work instead of staying in Korea, being unable to get any news from and of Joyoon for 5 years means that he can just assume he is dead and move on to a new love. If he cannot wait for the person he loves, then his love is not worth anything.
